Hello.. These opines of things factually defined in history should never come into question..
I believe in the right to free expression.. I believe it to be an honorable right.. along with inherent rights guiding us to a free.. egalitarian.. society..
E. Bernays who wrote of what media can accomplish and/or control.. had the specific advantage of being Sigmund Freud’s nephew.. Bernays’ perspective has been used.. and is used to great extent to influence the casual reader.. television viewer.. etc.. propaganda subliminal.. or hidden in other ways.. is seldom complete enough in message to deserve attention.. still it subconsciously gets to each person who senses it..
We have had light fast communications in mass media since the forties of the twentieth century.. many people.. esp in North America.. do not know a world without television.. still more of you do not know a world without computers.. neither make difference beyond shallow ‘in a play’ perspective.. mimicked in real life.. it is like watching Stanislavsky’s theory on ‘method acting’ reversed in brilliance.. and brilliant it well is.. as it enters our lives.. developing society.. or discarding sanity and with it society.. to survive we must always remember decency for those who are behind every screen..
One opine I have is.. SONY needs to grow a pair.. further they need to understand the primal importance of space.. ownership.. free expression.. to exchange in responsibility to stand honorably for comedy.. and other fine arts.. rather than letting art be turned into a cartoon.. by yet another..
Freedom of expression is primal.. it identifies another in society as surely as ownership of new expensive items.. solid relationships.. class.. respect.. and no matter how rare in this time of duplicity.. truth..
Another observation/opine.. Koreans.. (in Korea).. have exploited and understood media.. thought to be of military intelligence value.. used post hypnotic suggestion.. ‘brainwashing’.. there are also things Korean ancient and fine.. that define honor.. something no film or work of art can tarnish if it is true..
I think it a harsh commentary on the cartoon mentality of those who would allow a comedy film be seen.. or recognized.. as a threat in the politics requiring savvy that allows our species to survive.. for
despite prideful pretense.. we are infants in understanding eternal energy..
The final observation/opine is very short..
‘I believe the Bush family has done enough damage’..
Fearful things need not happen.. there is no homily.. nothing so ‘down to it’ that it will bring back the dead.. repair our educational systems.. stop death from curable diseases.. keep water and air clean.. keep our species.. political discourse and decency worldwide needs no more violence.. no more war.. those who say ‘this is not possible’.. need only change what they say.. and create..
