This film crystalizes the Republican agenda in a nutshell, but coming from General Electric, what else is to be expected? No mention of how farms used windmills to generate electricity for many years. A lot of hopeful talk about solar power, but that's before they realized they would'nt be able to find a way to make us pay for it.

In this endlessly fascinating mind warp of a film, electricity and american freedom are somehow interwoven together. The explanations of how these topics are related are fascinatingly played out in animated sequences and live action to produce one bizarre piece of propaganda. One wonders what EXACTLY is the purpose of the film? To explain the history of electricity? To prove that americans are not 'destroyers'? Who knows.. A bonus point: The absolutely hysterican theme song at the beginning (and repeated at the end). Highly reccomended!
