Documentary - Obey (Based on Chris Hedges' book “Death of the Liberal Class"

Chris Hedges' Death of the Liberal Class was an excellent, though disheartening look at the rise of the corporate state, with "unfettered capitalism, the national security state, globalization, and staggering income inequalities" over the past several decades, but especially in the last 15 to 20 years.

This documentary, Obey, is based on the book.


This is a film based on the book “Death of the Liberal Class” by journalist and Pulitzer prize winner, Chris Hedges.

It charts the rise of the Corporate State, and examines the future of obedience in a world of unfettered capitalism, globalization, staggering inequality and environmental change.

The film predominantly focuses on US corporate capitalism, but it is my hope that the viewer can recognize the relevance of what is being expressed with regards to domestic political and corporate activity.

It was made completely of clips found on the web.

We’re not only dreamers but also doers. We believe in actions not in violence; we believe in collaboration not in segregation. Numbers, figures, and hash-tags are labels to help us organize this chaotic world. Stories, however, give meaning to our lives and unite us to the shared visions.
