Our ideas about free speech might need to change unless we become a much more educated electorate. There isn’t enough critical thinking on the part of the audience to compensate for and process the massive amount of deception and lies that are constantly broadcast by our private media.
It’s important that we understand what actually goes into making a free, vibrant democracy or else we won’t know how to preserve it and help it flourish. Simply accepting that things are the way they are and they will continue to be that way forever is foolish and childish. It’s important to see that things are always at risk of destruction. Nothing is predetermined. Nothing is permanent. We must strive to preserve what is best about ourselves and to nurture and create more goodness or else other things will spring up as weeds in the garden. Another way of putting it is if you are not part of the solution you’re part of the problem. If you can’t look at your life and see ways that you are actively promoting goodness in the world then you are actually promoting and facilitating negativity.

Forget what Chuck Todd says. He doesn’t see the big picture.
Commercial, private media is the worst affliction of human civilization at least since the 20th century. I cannot wait until its era is past. It is truly a double-edged sword at best. No one can seriously argue its merit after what we have come to now.
A standout turn from the often under-utilized actor is one of the many joys of this carefully choreographed dinner party satire that acts as a cutting allegory of Trump’s America
I could not have put this any better myself I’m sure. So I’ll just post this as is. 🙂 I highly endorse the use of the word “savage” in the lede.
I hope you watch the movie and enjoy it!
I watched this movie at a time in my life when I could probably most feel it. I think it deserves to be linked with Movie Recommendation: The New Age in that context.
It’s nice to see a movie that is original, interesting, made by people with attention to detail, NOT A REBOOT . . . and actually entertaining, not something I’m forcing myself to like because people like me are supposed to like this thing. 😐
. . . Avoid patronizing any text, media, etc., that smells remotely like a reboot.
