Occuopy-Love-World-HeartSynopsis

Join director Velcrow Ripper on a journey deep inside the revolution of the heart that is erupting around the planet, as he asks the question, “How could the crisis we are facing become a love story?”

The old paradigm that concentrates wealth, founded on the greed of the few, is causing economic and ecological collapse.

The resulting crisis has become the catalyst for a profound awakening: millions of people are deciding that enough is enough – the time has come to create a new world, a world that works for all life.

Money is at the root of our social and economic crisis. A debt-based monetary system that gives private banks the power to create money from nothing. Then millions of ordinary people suffer when money and finance systems breaks down.

The monetary reform documentary  97% Owned features interviews and commentary from economists, campaigners and former bankers

Back in the 1930s, Henry Ford is supposed to have remarked that it was a good thing that most Americans didn’t know how banking really works, because if they did, “there’d be a revolution before tomorrow morning”
