US response to Covid has ultimately been like our response to school shootings: Once we decided unimaginable loss was a price worth paying for an imagined ideal of freedom, the number of deaths ceased to matter. We’d trade a million lives for our need to do exactly what we want.

Occasionally, someone will point out that Marines like Full Metal Jacket, finance guys like Wall Street, and some men like Fight Club more for the masculine fantasy than the critique, and then some teacher’s pet will sneer, “But that’s a misreading of the theme, you idiots!” No.

"Both siding" democracy & totalitarianism must end. A "FREE" press should be openly, aggressively biased in favor of democracy, & should hound, expose & discredit, without apology & with declared prejudice, any & all individuals & organizations which seek to undermine democracy.

‘The Fury’ is my favorite Cronenberg film directed by DePalma. ‘Cape Fear’ is my favorite DePalma film directed by Scorsese. ‘Eastern Promises’ is my favorite Scorsese film directed by Cronenberg.
