The Tragedy of the Commons Documentary Series Hosted by Ken Crawbuck
Join us for our monthly thought provoking documentary film series The Tragedy of the Commons. Our host, Ken Crawbuck, has selected "Iran (Is Not The Problem)" a feature length documentary film responding to the failure of the American mass media to provide the public with relevant and accurate information about the standoff between the US and Iran, as happened before with the lead up to the invasion of Iraq. We have heard that Iran is a nuclear menace in defiance of the international community, bent on "wiping Israel off the map", supporting terrorism, and unwilling to negotiate. This documentary disputes these claims as they are presented to us and puts them in the context of present and historical US imperialism and hypocrisy with respect to Iran. It looks at the struggle for democracy inside Iran, the consequences of the current escalation and the potential US and/or Israeli attack, and suggests some altertnatives to consider.
