Short Film: Liberal Democracy Theory ‘Market Maketh Man’

29 Jul
2010

This film is a brief analysis of the various models of liberal democratic theory, and how the concept of democratic rule became embedded in the shifting ideas of social equality, and increasingly dependant on the mechanism of capitalism.

The filmmaker states “The film is somewhat lacking in detail, most evidently in dates and significant references for each model examined; but I purposefully wanted to restrict the films length – political philosophy is no easy chore – and some things just had to be edited out. Much of the footage is from an archive of US political events, but it is my hope that the viewer can recognize the relevance of what is being expressed with regards to domestic political activity”.
