"I'm As Mad As Hell..."

And I'm Not Gonna Take This Anymore!!!"



"There are no nations. There are no peoples. There are no Russians. There are no Arabs. There are no Third Worlds. There is no West. There is only one holistic system of systems, one vast and immane, interwoven, interacting, multi-variant, multi-national dominion of dollars! Petrodollars, Electrodollars, Multidollars, Reichmarks, Rands, Rubles, Pounds and Shekels. It is the international system of currency which determines the totality of life on this planet. That is the natural order of things today. That is the atomic and subatomic and galactic structure of things today! There is no America. There is no Democracy. There is only IBM and ITT and AT&T and DuPont and Dow, Union Carbide and Exxon. Those are the nations of the world today. The world is a college of corporations inexorably determined by the immutable bylaws of business. The world is a business, Mr. Beale. It has been since man crawled out of the slime."

Go Paddy, go! Who said that nevuah died with the Tanach? That Jew was callin' the shots 30 years ago, right on the money. If you haven't seen Sidney Lumet's Network, made in 1975, I want you to get up out of your chair right now, go over to your computer... (uh... heah...), and put this movie at the top of your Netflix queue. Right now. In the meantime, check out this review, courtesy of Ruthless.
