Ron and I finally got to see Bowling for Columbine. What a movie! A stunning indictment of our fear-driven culture of violence and madness. Michael Moore tears the heart out of any niceties in saying Americans are violent ‘just because’ and coughs up the profiteers of a fear-charged economy. That as long as we stay scared of everything and everyone – a dollar can be made. One sequence details United States involvement in installing dictatorships and contributing to the deaths of millions of people all over the world. This is definitely a film that will piss you off. But will you do anything? Will you stay compliant as long as there’s no background check at the Gap? Will you stand by while the United States government continues to build puppet-led nations and subvert democracy and a country’s right to assert it’s own leadership and governance? How much worse is it going to get before we all just up and move to Canada?
