For the most part, I like the set up going here at XIXAX. My main complaint has not to do with who or who isn't represented in their own forum, but that there should be a way to make more obscure filmmakers represented in a more important way with their films. That's why I say a foreign filmmaker forum should be started because many people here look to these filmmakers over others but see them knocked back a few pages within a few days because only a handful of people seemed to see it on those first few days and felt obligated for discussion. Having a foreign filmmaker section allows these topics to stay in light longer and promote discussion more. I'm not asking for major change here, but I also don't think this is much of a change.

I second that. If only to learn a little more than I'd normally have the chance to.
Those who say that the totalitarian state of the Soviet Union was not "real" Marxism also cannot admit that one simple feature of Marxism makes totalitarianism necessary:  the rejection of civil society. Since civil society is the sphere of private activity, its abolition and replacement by political society means that nothing private remains. That is already the essence of totalitarianism; and the moralistic practice of the trendy Left, which regards everything as political and sometimes reveals its hostility to free speech, does nothing to contradict this implication.

When those who hated capital and consumption (and Jews) in the 20th century murdered some hundred million people, and the poster children for the struggle against international capitalism and America are now fanatical Islamic terrorists, this puts recent enthusiasts in an awkward position. Most of them are too dense and shameless to appreciate it, and far too many are taken in by the moralistic and paternalistic rhetoric of the Left.
