* ''Film/TheBigOne'': Follows Moore on his book tour for the best-seller "Downside This: Threats From An Unarmed American" as he tours cities where companies are closing down plants and opening factories overseas despite making huge profits. Moore attempts to meet with [=CEOs=] and ask them the reason for their questionable decisions, most notable for Moore's meeting with Nike CEO Phil Knight.[[spoiler: He tries to convince Knight to build a shoe factory in Flint to no avail, though he does succeed in getting him to donate $10,000 to Flint schools (on the condition that Moore matched his donation).]]

--> You know I've always thought it's very ironic that Iím able to do all this and yet what am I on? Iím on networks. Iím distributed by studios that are owned by large corporate entities. Now why would they put me out there when I am opposed to everything that they stand for? And I spend my time on their dime opposing what they believe in. Okay? Well it's because they donít believe in anything. They put me on there because they know that thereís millions of people that want to see my film or watch the TV show and so [[MoneyDearBoy theyíre going to make money]]. And Iíve been able to get my stuff out there because [[BatmanGambit Iím driving my truck through this incredible flaw in capitalism: the greed flaw. The thing that says the rich man will sell you the rope to hang himself with if he think he can make a buck off it.]] Well, Iím the rope. I hope. Iím part of the rope. And they also believe that when people watch my stuff, or maybe watch this film, or whatever, they think that, well you know what, theyíll watch this and they wont do anything because weíve done such a good job of numbing their minds and dumbing them down you know theyíll never affect... People arenít going to leave the couch and go and do something political. Theyíre convinced of that. Iím convinced of the opposite. [[HopeSpringsEternal Iím convinced that a few people are going to leave this movie theatre or get up off the couch and go and do something, anything, to get this world back in our hands.]]
* MoodWhiplash: ''Roger & Me'' begins by showing Michael growing up in the Flint area and later finding work in UsefulNotes/SanFrancisco Ö only to move back to Flint and find it a shadow of its former self.

* YouHaveFailedMe:
** In his first major book, ''Downsize This!'', he [[http://dogeatdogfilms.com/whyareu.html espoused the opinion]] that modern labor leaders have turned their backs on everything their predecessors stood for.
** Similarly, he spends an entire chapter in ''Stupid White Men'' expounding on a theory that the Democrats are "DOA," and refers to Bush as "[[UsefulNotes/BillClinton Clinton]]'s logical extension".
