Mark Steyn: Life is not a movie

Well, I certainly don't know how you feel about Mark Steyn's columns but I do greatly miss his routine columns at the Western Standard magazine. It's true that his columns are absent but thanks to the internet, (not the one invented by Al-Gore) we can still have the opportunity to read his wonderful stuff here and there. And this new one "Life is not a movie" is a must read. I enjoyed it...

And all the newly-released anti-Iraq movies are tanking!

Yup - Hollyweird certainly has the pulse of America (sarcasm), but not their film dollars.

The sad truth is the youth of today believes in the truth of pop culture.

Cannot distinguish between fantasy and reality.

Propogandists understand this and this is why movies and music are useful tools for marxist indoctination.

"... If 9/11 was really an inside job, you wouldn't be driving around with a bumper sticker bragging that you were on to it. Fantasy is a by-product of security: it's the difference between hanging upside down in your dominatrix's bondage parlor after work on Friday and enduring the real thing for years on end in Saddam's prisons."

The difference, of course, is that the submissive is always in control, and can tell the other to stop. In Saddam's prisons, the submissive is never permitted an out in reference to being acted upon, and forced into submission.

The difference between the fantasies of youth and the realities of islamofacism is that when push comes to shove, those Western youth who see their fantasies being threatened by islamofacists, typically know the difference.

In the west, you are free to have fantasies--something people take for granted.
