Can We Do It Ourselves? (2015) (trailer)

Within modern life exists a paradox: we celebrate democracy as a political system, but not as an economic system, even though our workplaces have a far greater impact on our day to day lives. It's fair to say that most workplaces under capitalist management are organized in an authoritarian fashion, yet this fact is rarely questioned or thought about. Why has it become normal to reject authoritarianism in our governments, while accepting it when we clock into our jobs?

"Can We Do It Ourselves?" asks if it is time to start pushing for a democratic, cooperative way of doing business, showing case studies of businesses who are surviving as democracies within our capitalist system.
