An Unreasonable Man: This documentary film was first aired in the year 2006. It is 2 hours and 3 minutes long. The directors plus the writer of the documentary film, Henriette Mantel and Steve Skrovan who explained the life story of consumer advocate Ralph Nader, from a want to be a presidential candidate to public pariah. It described the life and career of Ralph Nader, one of the most important, controversial and unique political figures of the past half century.
An Unreasonable Man: This documentary film further explains about the life of Ralph Nader. He was born in a small town in the Nutmeg State and obtained a degree from Harvard Law School. He wrote a book “Unsafe at Any Speed” in the year 1965, describing the auto industry’s willingness to destroy the safety, in the name of greater profits. However, Ralph Nader’s long career as an incorrupt watchdog, was defiled in the year 2004, when Ralph Nader moved for president on a campaign that attracted huge attention for a third party candidate and was damned by many Democrats, for drawing most of the votes away from Al Gore to allow George W. Bush, to walk off with an extremely narrow victory.
An Unreasonable Man: The documentary film says over the next thirty years and without ever holding public office. Many things we take for granted including airbags, seat belts, no nukes, product labeling and even the free ticket you get after being encountered from an overbooked flight are largely due to the efforts of Ralph Nader and his citizen groups. Yet now, when most people hear the name Ralph Nader, they think of the man, who has given the country George W. Bush. After accomplishing his popularity and effectiveness over an unprecedented amount of time, he has become an outcast, even among former friends and allies.
The reasonable man adapts himself to the world; the unreasonable one perseveres in trying to adapt the world to him. Therefore all efforts depend on the unreasonable man.
