the BEST Canadian Conservative leader?

I can’t support O’Leary or Leitch. I’d vote for ANYONE ahead of those two.

Man in the High Castle – season 2

I read one bad review. And almost decided not to bother with season 2.

But with Dictator Trump looming this TV series seemed too timely to pass up.

As it turned out, I’m glad I continued watching. Season 2 is not as good as season 1, but I still recommend it.

The Man in the High Castle is an American dystopian alternative history television series produced by Amazon …

The series is loosely based on the 1962 novel of the same name by American science fiction author Philip K. Dick. Taking place in 1962—in an alternate history of the world in which the Axis powers won World War II and subdivided the world, splitting the United States into two powers, the Greater Nazi Reich and the Japanese Pacific States …

Season 3 has been green lit.

We’ve always had propaganda.

Big Tobacco obfuscation of facts about cancer and smoking, for example.

… ignorance spreads when firstly, many people do not understand a concept or fact and secondly, when special interest groups – like a commercial firm or a political group – then work hard to create confusion about an issue. …

Snowden – the movie

I’ve had mixed feelings about Snowden himself. Watching the film was one way to learn more.

Sorry to say I ended up not much more enlightened. You can call him a a hero, a whistleblower, a dissident, a traitor and a patriot. All true. Certainly he’s a criminal.

I’d like to think I would have done the same thing … in his position.

His girlfriend Lindsay Mills is a much more interesting character. She’s an acrobat.

Snowden’s “breaking point” was “seeing the Director of National Intelligence, James Clapper, lie under oath to Congress”. That’s shown in the film. Initially hopeful that Obama would improve things, ultimately he gave up on him.

Snowden was right, of course.

Trump’s pick for CIA director has called for Snowden’s execution.

I’ve been following Glenn Greenwald over the past couple of years. He’s smart. But accurately depicted in the film as a jerk.

In the movie Snowden smuggles the classified information hidden in a tile in his Rubik’s cube. That may not be how he did it.

Snowden is a 2016 German-American biographical political thriller film directed by Oliver Stone and written by Stone and Kieran Fitzgerald, based on the books The Snowden Files by Luke Harding and Time of the Octopus by Anatoly Kucherena. …

For his role as Snowden, Joseph Gordon-Levitt pledged to donate his entire salary from the film to “help facilitate the conversation” about the relationship between technology and democracy  …

Due to fear of interference by the National Security Agency, Stone decided to shoot the film mostly outside of the United States …

Snowden received mixed reviews from critics, but Gordon-Levitt’s performance garnered critical praise. On review aggregator website Rotten Tomatoes, the film has an approval rating of 61%
