"I am a firm believer in the people. If given the truth, they can be depended upon to meet any national crisis. The great point is to bring them the real facts." -- Abraham Lincoln, American president, 1861-1865

Mark Hamill, a veteran actor best known for his portrayal as Luke Skywalker in the original “Star Wars” trilogy, as well as the often criticized Disney trilogy, was roasted by Instagram users on his own page after he opted to post a cringe pro-Biden social media post.

I had read a few reviews of Civil War and they leaned negative, for a myriad of reasons. Some people seemed disappointed and angry that the director did not pick a side, or even make a single political statement.

My interest in this movie stemmed from the snippet shown in previews, where a guy holding some journalists at gunpoint asks them who they are, they respond “Americans”, and he asks them:

British writer-director Alex Garland has conjured up a plot in which the 'Western Forces' — a somewhat improbable alliance between Texas and California — battles against a delusional dictator-president of the USA.

The story follows four annoyingly earnest journalists as they journey through the carnage of conflict into the heart of darkness, Washington DC.

"Doctor Who" is a BBC funded show that traces all the way back to the 1960s, with multiple actors playing different incarnations of the time-traveling character known as "the Doctor" as he goes on various sci-fi adventures. The latest iteration of this longstanding franchise has been widely criticized for catering to identity politics.

 

It's not the easiest thing for a person to step away from their peer group and question the dogmatic political path the mob has chosen to follow.  When it comes to the woke left, stepping out of line is doubly difficult because any deviation from the approved ideology usually means immediate cancellation and excommunication (one's career is in danger).  Only a few years ago it would have been unheard of for a mainstream celebrity to break from the progressive pack and speak publicly about inconvenient truths.  Those few that did were quickly blacklisted.
