(Same same But different)
I watched two movies over the weekend (amongst other things...) They were:
Manufacturing Consent (1992)
Pity that most people in this world do only want the easy answers, and when somebody (e.g. Lenny Bruce, Noam Chomsky) comes along and tells them that the truth is a lot more complicated than they have been told, that opinion is ridiculed, witch hunted or just plain ignored!
So fuck the majority they have done fuck all for anyone!
It’s only due to the people on the edge/fringes who are willing to but their balls on the line, that we’ve accomplished anything in this brainless, arrogant world of fear, deception and greed! You know who I mean, because their idea’s eventually get co opted by the mainstream (or as I like to call them idiots). Sorry to rant there, but if you see these two movies and don’t get a bit angry then your self control is developed far beyond mine!!!
I not only support the underdog, but I want to give him an AK to sort out the bullies!
If you require further convincing, please consult:
Bruce’s FBI files
Wikipedia: Lenny Bruce
Chomsky at MIT
Feel free to look around the web yourself! (I give you permission! Dept. of Homeland security might not recommend it though!)
I can never really expect to say anything as thought provoking or important as these two great men so I'll just promote their work, and quote them ad nauseam (To a disgusting or ridiculous degree). Hopefully i can Manufacture dissent (or at least stir things up a bit!)
"Fuck you." Never understood that insult, because fucking someone is actually really pleasant. If we're trying to be mean, we should say "unfuck you!" (Bruce)
