A while back I linked to some reviews of Michael Moore’s anti-market documentary Sicko. Here is another biting review from Strike the Root: “Stupido”

Moore   is obsessed with   Canada   ’s healthcare system and infatuated with   Cuba   ’s.  He offers up lots of anecdotal evidence and questionable statistics (they come from UN organizations).  Scenes of clean Cuban hospitals with satisfied patients are the most troubling. When viewing such scenes one must be aware of the fact that   Cuba   is ruled by tyranny and fear; uttering the wrong phrase or running afoul of the official party line can land a Cuban in jail or worse. Keep in mind that very little happens in   Cuba   without the blessing of its communist government. Taking all this into consideration, it is easy to see how   Moore   is able to find a clean hospital with smiling and satisfied patients.
