    • Synopsis
    • "The Sark Case" shows us a modern example of the abuses of Democracy by the Capitalism.
      After 450 years of Feudalism, Democracy arrived to the Isle of Sark (United Kingdom) on December 10th 2008. It arrived promoted by the powerful Barclay brothers, who as new Lords of the capital world used two flawless weapons of democracy: a thorough knowledge of the Law, and a perverse use of the freedom of press. Contrary to what one may think, not everyone in the unique Isle of Sark was happy with the arrival of Democracy.
      And the result of those first democratic elections was not the one everyone expected...
