that was me who emailed that in to Greg


(not the Lena bit, tho...)
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.

I think that cinemascope should change his name to troublemaker.

Jeez, I say we all huff some crack and forget all about this silly little debate. We all know PTA is a brazen and original and innovational filmmaker, so let's just whip out our pipes/jam a few rocks in and light that baby up! C'mon people, this is common sense.

debate? this thread is nothing more than yet another shrine to pta, just like every other one one in this pta director section. its been 8 pages of ppl praising him, all b/c one insignificant new guy makes one trifling remark about the man himself that got everyone all pissy. the thread title should be 'pta is very food.'

I dunno, that was my favorite one of all time...
