to Economic Terrorists and War Criminals. It should be required viewing for every American so they understand the enormity of the crimes these people got away with, not to mention the huge amounts of money they took with them.

Not only have none of them been held accountable, they have been hugely rewarded for crashing the world economy, and it's clear they knew what they were doing.

Some day maybe, when or IF the rule of law is ever re-established for the top 1%, some of them will pay for their crimes. But so far, it doesn't seem likely.

At the beginning of the film, someone compared this kind of excessive greed to a drug addiction. There seems to be some studies that demonstrate the drive for excessive power and money affects the same part of the brain that is affected by other addictions.

What is striking about them, when the appeared before Congress is that they had no remorse at all. They feel entitled to the billions they took at the expense of this country.

This is truly a very dark period in our history.
