    I spit at lots of people through my computer screen. Not only does it "teach them a lesson" but it keeps the screen clean and shiny.

The documentary is virtually non-political, it's just reality. Only real blue collar working people in it, no actors.

    Trump would never do any revealing documentary such as this one because it's raw and it's what exists.
    There is a reason I shy away from documentaries. Most all of them are slanted toward drama, and therefore distorted in view and presentation.

None dare call it what it is, but Netflix’s Higher Ground mindhive looks like the new Ministry of Propaganda."

    The propaganda has worked.

    Any time I bring up Dominionism, the right snorts with derision.
    And yet, The Family is simply the suit and tie grandfathered extension of the same dogma.

    To over-simplify this documentary; 'A Chinese company reopens a shuttered factory in Ohio. But a culture clash threatens to shatter an 'American dream.' I'm certain that once people watch this compelling documentary it will open up a very lively debate here, which it should.

    They made a similar movie back in the 80's that my high school teacher made us watch.

    I went through the "documentary" not my cup of tea. They were definitely going for the drama angle. Ehh.
