Why People Dislike Big Corporations With Lots of Attorneys
Reviewed in the United States on November 15, 2019
I started watching this without realizing anything about it. Sounds strange but I do this sometimes and I often go to the middle of a film and if in a minute or two I see anything that catches my interest I then go to the beginning and watch a few minutes. In less than five minutes I can cull something without even reading about it (often reading sounds like the right choice until you find what you thought had promise doesn't). Anyway this one passed the test. I truly different story about something we all have enjoyed. What few of us actually knew was the history of the Dr. Pepper soft drink and it's most unique bottler in Dublin, Texas. It's a compelling very human story. It's also a microcosm of American business greed. Big business often can't see the forest for the trees. The bigger the stakes the more decisions deviate from the good to humanity to sheer profit. I'm in the footwear retail business and I can tell you if you can find a person who works anywhere in America building shoes give them a hug because they're an endangered species. But I digress, here we have a heritage story of a great brand woven in a special way into a small community. That one man's vision on how to keep a product true to it's roots served the small town of Dublin, Texas well for generations. That is until corporate tunnel vision couldn't come up with a workable compromise that Dr. Pepper Dublin and Snapple-Dr. Peppper corporate could both live by. I get the feeling if they could save a penny corporate Dr. Pepper would throw history and humanity under a bus. Ladies and gentlemen, this is one story that screams big business with loads of attorneys combined with deep pockets generally stink. They do things that are against morality and patriotism for dollars. It's a bit of a small reason why people distrust Wall Street and often have low opinions of attorneys. Other than that this is a darn entertaining documentary.
