Movies: Good Night, And Good Luck (2005)
We will not walk in fear, one of another. We will not be driven by fear into an age of unreason if we dig deep into our history and our doctrine, and remember that we are not descended from fearful men. Not from men who feared to write, to associate, to speak, and to defend the causes that were for the moment, unpopular. This is no time for men who oppose Sen. McCarthy’s methods to keep silent or for those who approve. We can deny our heritage and our history but we cannot escape responsibility for the result. We proclaim ourselves as indeed we are, the defenders of freedom wherever it continues to exist in the world. But we cannot defend freedom abroad by deserting it at home. The actions of the Junior Senator from Wisconsin have caused alarm and dismay amongst our allies abroad and given considerable comfort to our enemies. And whose fault is that? Not really his, he didn’t create this situation of fear, he merely exploited it, and rather successfully. Cassius was right, the fault dear Brutus is not in our stars, but in ourselves. Good night, and good luck.
(Edward R. Murrow)
Can Game of Thrones just be about Daenerys? Yes? We all agree. Okay then! Let’s do it.
Home is now behind you. The world is ahead.
The Lord of the Rings Meme: Three Locations [1/3]
But actually…this is one of those locations I SO wish was real that I cry myself to sleep at night.
Seriously considering waiting in line to see this in person…
“134th day of the Cylon occupation of New Caprica.
Today is Mars day. Somehow it seems appropriate to honor the god of war… on a day when it feels like perpetual war is the only realistic prospect for us. We’ve had no contact with Galactica since it left four months ago. But I refuse to believe that Adama has abandoned us. Our insurgency has been striking back against the Cylons whenever and wherever possible. Although at times these attacks seem like futile gestures, I believe that they are critical to moral, to maintaining some measure of hope.”
