i think he is talking about something that will never happen
It's always somebody else's fault these days. It’s not the fault of the advertising industry. It is the fault of stupid selfish 'common man' who have bought into consumerism (and like it), and governments that promote this idea because it keeps the economy growing, helping to make them richer and more powerful.
I agree that the common man wants to live in peace, but as for justice and a clean environment, I am not so sure the common man gives that much of a shit so long as it doesn’t affect him too much. The common man wants peace, wants enough to keep him and his family comparatively happy and satisfied, and perhaps for his kids to have it a bit better than he did.
What is it to spend one’s money “wisely”? What is “wisely”? To spend it in such a way that it conforms to Woody Harrelson’s political vision of “social responsibility,” or to maximize comfort and enjoyment for me and mine, or perhaps some other ideal?
Does starvation exist because our resources are not utilized “wisely,” or because of distribution, environmental and political constraints?
So Woody Harrelson has his finger on the pulse of the world majority? Did he gain that insight in Hollywood or where?
And putting Michael Moore and Chomsky in the background didn’t make this actor any more convincing.
