Please clarify 'blowing things out of proportion.' Because if calling things to attention is automatically blowing them out of proportion I'd like to examine the path of logic you took to get there.
You blame the idiots (that's why I'm blaming you for this argument) of course. Your argument is like blaming McDonalds for making people fat. McDonalds doesn't make people fat. Stupid people eat unhealthily and become fat.
You're right. Because McDonald's doesn't manufacture, market to children, and promote their marginal health benefits. It's the people who are guilty of all that!
What am I saying. You're wrong. 50% wrong.
Film is almost always propaganda, the film makers are disseminating their views on events or ideas.
Just because you feel threatened in some way by Disney, and its Disneyfication of things, is no reason to get your panties in a knot.
What are you talking about? I don't feel threatened. Here comes another chump who starts superimposing arguments on what another persons opinion didn't mean.
This isn't about "feeling threatened". It's about being frustrated with the amount of retelling of history that is going on in cinema lately, in LIGHT of other world events that are going on.
Am I the only one that realizes the importance of the time we're living in, and the impact these films make? Did you read the other posts in this thread? Are you a thinking person?
So they change a story to make it fit their views, who gives a fuck? It's not like this is the documentary channel, or school. I don't hear you complaining about science being taught in school, even though science is just theory, not fact (for the most part, especially cutting edge stuff).
Hang out with me then, we'll go for some river otter and ketchup. I can tell you all about my long list of complaints. It will make you delighted.
It is up to people to look at the information they are provided, and establish if it is factual or not. People don't take enough responsiblity for their own learning and actions.
People like you furthur that problem by blaming everyone else for everything you think is wrong, rather than doing anything about it. [/B]
Wrong. I blame morons like you who make arguments like the one you just made. Meanwhile, outside of bitching about it on Tribe (a vehicle, a by product of what I do outside in real life) I actually do go out and do things about it.
If you're going to continue this, drop the presumption or I'll start in with my very own brand of it. And it is ugly.
