i know about 200 warmovies about vietnam, ww2 and other wars usa-related, but almost no movies that shows warcrimes and torture the usa and israel are doing
User avatar #19 - durkadurka (10 hours ago) [-]
Just because a movie isn't about the subjects you think they should be about doesn't mean that Hollywood isn't critical of America on a routine basis. More often than not, if a movie has a political message, it is against America, the Right, or both.

One of the bigger cliches is the corrupt, evil military commander. Most movies made in Hollywood and including the military make sure to portray at least some aspect of it in a negative light. In fact, Act of Valor was repeatedly attacked and criticized for NOT doing these things.

The same can be said for similar tropes. I practically role my eyes when a movie pulls the tired "evil businessman" plot.

These tropes and cliches may not seem like a big deal to you but they're indicative of how those in Hollywood see the United States. If you know and understand the political stances of most in Hollywood this will make sense to you.


On war crimes and torture: No part can possibly avoid any and all wrongdoing during a war. Bad things will happen regardless of the military or force engaged in the conflict. Unfortunately these things happen all of the time, all over the world, and have happened all throughout history. So this is essentially why your topic of choice is not covered: it's nothing special or new. In fact the actions taken by the US or Israel dwarf in comparison to that of their enemies or other nations around the world.

Another part of this explanation is what I mentioned previously: these are criticisms of the culture ingrained in movies that aren't necessarily about a topic critical of America. It's a much more subtle affair than you imagine.

I have political opinions that are rather opposed to mainstream Hollywood's positions which makes it almost impossible to miss it. I don't think they're always doing it intentionally either, it's just tied to their political world view which quite frankly is not one in which America is held in a good light.

I'm not saying they'd be at fault if something bad happened.

But I am saying that it probably wouldn't have been a good idea. And I'm also saying that your sarcastic statement was correct in certain situations.

Now, this new point about learning the cost of freedom... Let's just say I don't subscribe to the whole "blood of patriots" thing. Everything's all fine and well until you're finally the one doing the bleeding.

Back to the movie, I just don't think a comedy is worth risking foreign aggression. Should we let the little fuck bully us? No, but pick your battles well with a batshit opponent.

Youre taking shit from a third world tier country.

How much of a bitch do you have to be? If anything, this is a good time to drop the 3rd atomic bomb on north korea and make sure they dont advance into the next age of technology when they can do shit.
User avatar #33 - durkadurka (18 hours ago) [-]
I can see the sense in which you say my sarcastic comment can hold true, however I think my intent behind the use of the phrase "freedom of speech" is clear enough.

I get the concern for people's safety but I don't think your core values are something you ever should compromise on. Even with the small stuff. Making these concessions is essentially saying that we or at least Sony stand for nothing, at least in my mind. Making these little slips gets you things like the Patriot Act. Though I will say that I don't expect people to get things right all of the time, because we are imperfect and will make mistakes.

Sticking to your core values is going to suck at times. There's going to be hard decisions to make, decisions that may even have tough consequences.

It doesn't necessarily have to be the "blood of patriots" notion; A cost of freedom could be simply that a choice you make ends up negatively impacting yourself or those around you. Note that this is assuming actions within the scope of the law In a similar sense a cost of freedom is that it forces you to be more responsible with your own life.

Doing the hard thing shows that we're willing to back up what we believe in to the point of risking our safety.

It really just would have been nice for Sony to say that they're going to stand for something and not give in to fear. They've just given fear more power over people

it's not that, i'd rather get shit for not airing a movie than some one trying to lawsuit cause "i could have cancelled the movie" there is no way to know if the threats were real, but if they were it would be a disaster
User avatar #28 - Greevon (18 hours ago) [-]
Yeah, that's actually how it works. Reckless endangerment.

You can't yell "fire" in a crowded theater. Freedom of speech is not a defense when you present a clear and present danger.

I'd say ignoring threats from a nation with a crazy dictator would fall into that category, but it's open for interpretation what "clear and present" means.
User avatar #29 - durkadurka (18 hours ago) [-]
Yelling fire in a theater is not expression covered under the first amendment. A movie, especially one that makes direct commentary in regards to real world issues, is. This is because it is political speech/expression. Other types of speech are NOT guaranteed by the first amendment.

Sony is not responsible if a third party takes violent actions at theaters which they neither own nor control because of content they've created. The theaters themselves are only responsible if they threats are specific and credible (ie "we're going to bomb some theaters" is not gonna cut it).

Otherwise it'd be like holding car manufacturers responsible for car crashes because they make the vehicles which people drive.

We haven't had to deal with the fact that freedom is costly and often dangerous in a long time. At some point we'll have to re-learn just exactly what securing freedom entails.

User avatar #21 to #20 - durkadurka ONLINE (09/03/2012) [-]
I've known how the whole thing works for a while. It's not a gigantic worldwide slavery scheme like the link seems to claim. It's simply that the corporations have the power they do because they are given it by those in the government. The corporation keeps the politician elected, and the politician does favors for the corporation. Ex: GE paid nothing in taxes last year.

Simply put, corporations exist to make money. They're not good, not evil, they just are. They've done good things and bad things, but it's all just to make as much money as they can. It's silly to hate them, but at the same time stupid not to keep any eye on them.

I don't think it'll ever get to the point where we're "enslaved" in a more literal sense. There's simply too many people for such a thing to realistically happen. Fixing the problem is all about electing politicians who won't play the lobbying game or play favorites.

i can read this
أن ينصركم الله فلا غالب لكم.
"If God is there to help you none will overcome you" this is the rest of the verse "and if He forsake you, who will help you other than Him? So only in God should the faithful place their trust." (3:160)

the writing is beautiful i want to tattoo something like that, but ofcourse not a verse from the quran (&)

That guy was just a typical liberal with no concept of what our country was founded on.
User avatar #2 to #1 - durkadurka ONLINE (01/19/2012) [-]
He just sat there playing philosophical games to dance around the issues and to call me stupid, like a typical liberal. He's probably in some college course on philosophy and thinks he's so smart when he regurgitates what his professor told him.

I've never met anyone so detached from reality.
User avatar #3 to #2 - SgtObvious (01/20/2012) [-]
I don't think he even understood the point he was trying to make by the end of the argument.
User avatar #4 to #3 - durkadurka ONLINE (01/20/2012) [-]
He ceased to make any points about two or three posts in. When liberals get stuck, they just attack your character and call you stupid. They don't use facts.
