its not republican run cities with the highest levels of minority impoverished and soaring out of control crime where human monsters get arrested and thanks to bail reform are right back out on the street nice try though snoop A for effort. It was Harris and her people get bailed out after rioting arrests even a convicted child molester-Go Liberals. Obama and Biden built those cages and had 8 years to do something about immigration and did jack. See you got me all wrong I am now glad Biden won and I hope conservatives lose the senate so all you self righteous liberals get to live in what you think will be a socialist paradise, defunded police, job killing globalist policies and big tech google, Facebook, twitter controlling what information you have access to. I have no fear you see I was criminal for 25 years and I know i can keep my friends and loved ones safe in the nightmare democrats want to unleash on this country, can you?

If you want to fight crime, don’t vote for criminals.
If you fear human monsters, don’t support presidents that rip toddlers from the arms of brown-skinned mums, and put them in cages.

Sir:

Please describe for us, in as much detail as pleases you, the difference in your mind between those you call, “real people”, and those people who are not real. It is a serious condition to be not real, no? Might the not real people be sub-human? And if sub-human, what liberties might you afford yourself, or the current regime in your country, as to what can be done to the not real?

You are correct, of course, however, “the play’s the thing”, I reckon. When we hear or read Shakespeare, Moliere, G,B. Shaw, or Arthur Miller, the beauty of the ideas, wrought by the words, emerges.

Swept Away (1975)
gsaint 2 points 1 month ago. (Contains Spoilers)

Drama and humour. Exquisite acting, watch their incredible eyes. A shrill, narcissistic, rich, shrew from the industrialised north of Italy and a poor sailor from the Mezzogiorno. The clash of women and men. The oppression of the poor by the rich, the class war. How rich and poor are treated differently, as if they are from different countries. A reversal of fortune turns the world upside down on their island which reveals another form of cruel domination, toxic male machismo. And it’s funny, truly funny, and touching. Listen for this line, “You!, you’re everywhere, just like Coca Cola.”

In reference to the above exchange: Jhigh03 and myself have had no previous contact. Jhigh03 smeared me by calling me fascist. I asked Jhigh03 to honestly tell me what had motivated him to slander, and what he hoped to gain from it. I waited several days, however Jhigh03 decided not to reply. Unless I can be convinced otherwise, it appears an act of malicious slander was followed upon by an act of cowardice.

Rosa Luxemburg (1986)
gsaint 1 points 1 month ago.

from Sheila Benson’s review in the Los Angeles Times, June 5, 1987:

When she was 11, in 1882, Polish-born Rosa Luxemburg wrote to Germany’s Kaiser Wilhelm: “I’m a complete fool in politics, but there’s one thing I must tell you: Tell that swine Bismarck not to put peace at risk. Do it for the sake of Europe!”

That earnest little pacifist, small for her age and with a limp, grew into the firebrand “Red Rosa,” probably the most spellbinding orator and writer on the pre-World War I political scene…Luxemburg was a towering figure on the late 19th- and early 20th-Century political scene: a journalist, author, speaker, a leader of the German Social Democrats…

The display of theatre, art, culture, popular culture, film, and television which have within them political or social commentary is a political act.

The display of theatre, art, culture, popular culture, film, and television which are scrupulously devoid of political or social commentary, is equally a political act.

Sir Herbert Edward Read, DSO, MC, saw art, culture and politics as a single congruent expression on human consciousness.

an award winning comedy/drama and an endearing story

Bicycle Thieves (1948)
gsaint 7 points 1 month ago*.

Considered to be one of the all-time great films. The poignant and moving story of a working class man with a young son caught in a society near destroyed by its pursuit of a futile, imperialist war, followed by conquest and occupation. A bicycle is his only means of survival. As backround, this was being filmed at the same time the OSS, precurser to the CIA, was actively destroying the labour movement and installing an oppressive right wing government in Italy, crushing any hope there of creating a society benificent to ordinary people. Italy is where they learned their business and set the template for ongoing hundreds of malicious interventions by the CIA across the world and to the present.
It is a small story and endearing. A struggle which working poor and working class people can recognise; desperation, hope, familial loyalty and love.

Blacklisted and banned in the USA, it is biased in favour of working class men, and women abused by men. The entire crew had been blacklisted before making this film. The lead actress was deported by the US. More important than race or gender, class defines society, which is why this film is still relevent today. As the world now operates, the hyper rich are a small but lethal and dangerous tribe.

Totally Under Control (2020)
gsaint 2 points 1 month ago*.

Whilst the world was publically and daily given a pathologically optimistic assessment of the plague by Mr. Trump and his operatives, Mr. Trump gave eighteen private and recorded interviews to journalist, Bob Woodward, from December 5, 2019 to July 21, 2020. Mr. Trumps’ assessment is opposite his public statements.
Peruse excerpts of what Mr. Trump said, below

Trump & Bob Woodward interviews

Late January

In a January 28 top secret intelligence briefing, national security adviser Robert O’Brien gave Trump a “jarring” warning about the virus, telling the President it would be the “biggest national security threat” of his presidency. Trump’s head “popped up,” Woodward writes.

O’Brien’s deputy, Matt Pottinger, concurred, telling Trump it could be as bad as the influenza pandemic of 1918, which killed an estimated 50 million people worldwide, including 675,000 Americans. Pottinger warned Trump that asymptomatic spread was occurring in China: He had been told 50% of those infected showed no symptoms.

February 7

“This is deadly stuff,” Trump told Woodward on February 7.

“Pretty amazing,” Trump told Woodward, adding that the coronavirus was maybe five times “more deadly” than the flu.

“It goes through the air,” Trump said. “That’s always tougher than the touch. You don’t have to touch things. Right? But the air, you just breathe the air and that’s how it’s passed. And so that’s a very tricky one. That’s a very delicate one. It’s also more deadly than even your strenuous flus.”

In early February, Trump told Woodward he knew how deadly the virus was, and in March, admitted he kept that knowledge hidden from the public.

March 19

“I wanted to always play it down,” Trump told Woodward on March 19. “I still like playing it down, because I don’t want to create a panic.”

Trump: Now it’s turning out it’s not just old people, Bob. Just today and yesterday, some startling facts came out. It’s not just old- older.

Woodward: Yeah, exactly.

Trump: Young people too, plenty of young people.

Woodward asked Trump if he ever sat down with Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, to learn more about the virus.

Trump: Yes, I guess, but honestly there’s not a lot of time for that, Bob, this is a busy White House. We’ve got a lot of things happening. And then this came up.

April

Trump divulged to Woodward that the night before he’d spoken to Chinese President Xi Jinping about the virus. Woodward quotes Trump as saying, “We’ve got a little bit of an interesting setback with the virus going in China.”

On April 5, Trump again told Woodward, “It’s a horrible thing. It’s unbelievable,” and on April 13, he said, “It’s so easily transmissible, you wouldn’t even believe it.”

May

Asked by Woodward in May if he remembered O’Brien’s January 28 warning that the virus would be the biggest national security threat of his presidency, Trump equivocated.

Woodward: Your new national security adviser, O’Brien, said to you January 28, “Mr. President, this is going- this virus is going to be the biggest national security threat to your presidency.” Do you remember that?

Trump: No, no. No, I don’t. No, I don’t. I’m sure if he said it – you know, I’m sure he said it. Nice guy.

July

The virus has nothing to do with me,” Trump told Woodward in their final interview in July. “It’s not my fault. It’s — China let the damn virus out.”

Aug. 14

In a recorded Aug. 14 phone interview with Bob Woodward, President Trump concluded that:

Trump: “Nothing more could have been done. Nothing more could have been done.”

ADDENDA:

President Trump tested positive for Covid 19.

Trump recently conjectured about Covid 19:

“…hardly anyone gets it”.

On late Friday morning, the first lady Melania Trump said on Twitter that “I have mild symptoms but overall feeling good about my cut of the estate.” “I am looking forward to a speedy solution,” she said.

Barron, the Trumps’ son, tested negative for caring.

Vice President Mike Pence — the first in line to assume the Oval Office should Mr. Trump’s symptoms worsen and he become too ill to carry out his duties — tested negative for the virus on Friday. Mr. Pence vowed a government continuity plan of Christian Dominion, “if necessary, God willing”.

Brave New World (2020)
gsaint 3 points 3 months ago*.

Contrasting the worlds of Orwell’s, “Nineteen Eighty-Four” and Huxley’s, “Brave New World”:

“What Orwell feared were those who would ban books. What Huxley feared was that there would be no reason to ban a book, for there would be no one who wanted to read one. Orwell feared those who would deprive us of information. Huxley feared those who would give us so much that we would be reduced to passivity and egoism. Orwell feared that the truth would be concealed from us. Huxley feared the truth would be drowned in a sea of irrelevance. Orwell feared we would become a captive culture. Huxley feared we would become a trivial culture…As Huxley remarked, civil libertarians, ever on the alert to oppose tyranny, ‘failed to take into account man’s almost infinite appetite for distractions.’ “In “Nineteen Eighty-Four”, Huxley added, people are controlled by inflicting pain. In “Brave New World”, they are controlled by inflicting pleasure. In short, Orwell feared that what we hate will ruin us. Huxley feared that what we love will ruin us.”

…from Neil Postman’s book, “Amusing Ourselves to Death”

To which, may I add:

Whilst Orwell looked back at; Mussolini, Franco, Hitler, and Stalin. Huxley anticipated; televised sports. comfort foods, reality television, megachurches and the “prosperity gospel”, video games, video games based on movies, movies based on video games, video games based on video games, movies based on movies, T.V. preachers and PornHub (both most popular in the exact same regions), Netflix, You-tube, Q anon, 24hr. cable news, liquor home delivery… and etcetera ad infinitum.
