Michael Moore on Capitalism: 'Anti-Christian,' 'Anti-American' System

"I really put that in there for an audience of one. I wanted him to see that. I want him to know, that as much as we love him, as much as we support him, we also know who his backers are. And we'll be watching," Moore said. "And we'll wait and see whether or not he's going to do what's best for Wall Street, or for the people. I'm banking on the fact that he's gonna do what's best for the people."

Moore has attempted to bring the human impact of what he sees as a corrupt financial system to the attention of the country and government leaders. He considers himself a "surrogate" for the masses.

"I come from a working class, you know, I have a high school education," he said. "I'm fortunate to be able to do this, very fortunate, and I think people see me as their surrogate, I'm there fighting the fight in these films for them and I think they wish that they could walk into the chairman's office and have a word or two."

A self-described "optimist," Moore believes that even the "villains" on Wall Street will be moved by ripple effects of their actions on the society as a whole.

"I believe that all people are good at their core, including the people that work at Goldman Sachs, that if they could see the results of their decisions, of what they have done, I think they would be affected by this," he said.
