An animated fairy tale about just who the big bad wolf in society really is…

Tax the rich An animated fairy taleWho creates the issues and then who they blame for them to divert attention…  Does this sound at all familiar to you, New Zealand?

Tax the rich: An animated fairy tale 

(Narrated by Ed Asner, with animation by Mike Konopacki. Written and directed by Fred Glass for the California Federation of Teachers.)

An 8 minute video about how we arrived at this moment of poorly funded public services and widening economic inequality.

Things go downhill in a happy and prosperous land after the rich decide they don’t want to pay taxes any more.

They tell the people that there is no alternative, but the people aren’t so sure.

This land bears a startling resemblance to our land.
