I'm sure you have been at least as busy as I have, so I apologize for not posting more often, but it's a symptom of the season. I saw The Hobbit: The Battle Of the Five Armies and it was epic. It's two and a half hours, but seemed to have lasted only an hour, it went so fast. I plan to see some movies tomorrow, but family time is up in the air. My first priority is to see Into the Woods because that's the one I think is mostly likely to go pro-socialist but I am not sure, that's a guess; I also plan to see Unbroken and The Imitation Game. As you know, none of these are the films being talked about, are they?
|What exactly happened with this? It's not just a question of who hacked into Sony, but of their response to the hackers' threats and the White House's lack of a response to the threats. Personally, and I don't think this is a popular position, I side with North Korea: I don't think they hacked into Sony, I thin the White House did it, or an American agency on orders from the White House; why? Back in the old days, Mary, Queen of Scots, had sanctioned an assassination attempt on Queen Elizabeth I; Elizabeth, paranoid that Mary/her supporters, would take her thrown debated about having her executed. It was the a dilemma because no monarch had ever had another monarch put to death and, if the English rose up against Elizabeth, they might put her to death if Elizabeth established a precedent. Elizabeth buckled and had Mary beheaded. I think Obama is worried that, a film sanctioning the assassination of a socialist dictator will give the American people ideas about assassinating our own socialist dictator, and he doesn't want to do that, so Obama had Sony hacked and leveled a threat about shwoing the film then blamed it on North Korea. Given all the lies, and the total lack of justice coming out of the White House, they have zero credibility, and North Korea actually has more; if North Korea did it, I am confident they would have owned to it. The White House, on the other hand, is nothing but denial about everything. No one has less credibility than the White House and there are precedents for them doing this: the NSA scandals, the hacking of the phones of the press and computers of journalists. When do we know of North Korea doing any of that? Regardless of whether or not I am correct, these events demonstrate the political dimensions of films and the repercussions--real or perceived--they can have upon countries and the whole world.|
