Morgan Spurlock on Governments, Fast Food and Pushing Against Power

Morgan Spurlock's a master of asking "Why?" Why did fast food go from being a rare treat to being a total addiction? Why has the threat of terrorism become such a constant source of anxiety? When did we give governments and big corporations so much power over our lives? In this clip, George asks Morgan what's the biggest lie we're being told today.

Morgan's on the show tonight, along with Sam Neill.

Quotes from this clip:

"It's hard right now with everything that's happening in the United States to see the turmoil that's happening within my government. It's become such a corporate-centric financial behemoth. It's become a business. It's like Government, Inc. versus government by and for the people. That's a very bad bank. It's a bad bank."

"It's good to push up against things that have so much power. I think you have to really rail against things that have power. Especially corporations, which now we've given all the power of an individual, yet with none of the repercussions of an individual."
