Damn. For a second there I actually forgot about Section 8C in Dave's (and Bush's) Developed Nation Handbook that requires the richest 1% to have more wealth than the poorest 90%.

while Moore isnt the most intelligent human being ever to grace the world, one has to admire his tenacity in criticism in Bush. if only someone more eloquent and better at making films which arent boring had helped the Democrats maybe the world wouldnt have been subjected to Bush again

I don't see anything wrong with that. If everyone just went along with what they were told, what kind of society do you think we'd live in? And it's not like he is just stirring controversy for the hell of it. As Bred says, the points he raises are matters of extreme importance that are generally glazed over by governments/media. Authority should not be seen as absolute. Should a government govern the people, or the people govern the government?

View Post




Everything is wrong with that. He is out to cause trouble at every instance. His so called "points" are a very carefully set of selective quotes from people. He doesnt tell the entire story, doing such would rubbish his "points". There is the right to free speech but he abuses such. Hes a complete and utter nuisance. The man sets out to cause negativity. Thats not the way to get your point across.

I find it extremely funny how much of a hypocrite he is too. He portrays himself as a crusader against wealthy capitalist americans but for what cause? So he can generate the said wealth himself? laugh.gif Its absolutely and utterly laughable.

At most he's just a talented spin doctor.

I didn't do any Modern Studies either. I'm just interested in it, so I read about it and stuff. I'm maybe doing politics and economics at uni, so there's a motivation for me biggrin.gif.

You should wiki it all - 'tis always good.

Most of the time he doesn't make his points through the use of quotes though.

He has money, yes. However, that in itself is doesn't make him a hypocrite. Moore gives lots of money to charity and I don't see anything wrong with him preaching for the left if it results in greater awareness of social problems. I don't believe he works just for personal gain. I think he's doing a good deed in raising awareness by exposing the myth that the USA is some sort of perfect society, and emphasising that it doesn't have to be that way.

Seems to work very well for him though, eh? Just because you have a preconcepted hatred for him, doesn't mean his work isn't influencial and popular. Because I can assure you, it is both.

As much as you can dislike like the American government etc etc.

I think calling Bush a twat is a bit harsh, and the American government on the whole cannot be 'stupid'.

I think it's easy for people just to jump on the wagon and say Bush is silly etc etc.

Although some of the stuff on 2DTV with him is funny! tongue.gif lol.

it ain't harsh at all! George Bush is both stupid in terms of his common sense and also his decision making.
