Taking and not giving back, demanding that "productivity" and "earnings" keep on increasing with time, the System removing from the rest of the World these vast quantities of energy to keep its own tiny desperate fraction showing a profit: and not only most of humanity—most of the World, animal, vegetable, and mineral, is laid waste in the process. The System may or may not understand that it's only buying time. And that time is an artificial resource to begin with, of no value to anyone or anything but the System, which must sooner or later crash to its death, when its addiction to energy has become more than the rest of the World can supply, dragging with it innocent souls all along the chain of life. Living inside the System is like riding across the country in a bus driven by a maniac bent on suicide . . . though he's amiable enough, keeps cracking jokes back through the loudspeaker . . .”

    Luka did you ever go and see this?

    I'm a big fan. As capitalist propaganda goes it's very charming.

    I think their dominance is partly about the juvenilisation of adults in our era. They're not just selling superheroes and talking lions to kids now, or even to kids parents - its to everyone.

    Even more 'gritty' films like the Dark Knight or Logan are just kids' movies for adults.

    Saw a clip of that new Lion King and was disgusted by how bland it looked. Whatever you think of those 90s disney films "ethically" or "politically" or w/ever, the animation is beautiful. These new photorealistic CGI ones look ugly and aren't purpose built to make you believe animals are talking and its adorable not sinister and creepy.
