Food for Thought

01 Aug

The following clip was taken from the American show called The Newsroom starring Jeff Daniels.

The contents of the clip and his delivery of his lines are quite powerful and really do give food for thought in this day and age. I will not comment on the actual contents as I do not wish to Moralize or become political

    This is excellent! I just can’t believe an AMERICAN MOVIE SAID IT!!

    I’ve been watching some choice videos this Saturday morning, absolutely choice.

    Ian, great share, truly great share. I would never have come across it otherwise. Thank you.

      This is a great video clip, and why I like it is because outside of America this is actually how other countries perceive America and their way of thinking, surprised it was allowed to be published, shades of Julian Assange I think.

    Reblogged this on The Flight of Reason and commented:
    I don’t remember ever posting a video on my site. I, like the person from whom I’m reblogging this, will not comment with my personal opinion on this video. I just thought it was interesting, and that maybe you would want to check it out. Thanks Emu, what a find.

      Man, I tried to reblog this, and -as if reblogging is really that difficult – I jacked it all up. And now I can’t reblog again. Well, great post. The above comment was going to be my words on my blog about this post. Ah well.

        Easier to just go to you tube mate and find it , click on share, then embed then copy and paste
        Re blogging should have worked though, glad you thought enough of it to re blog

      Certainly a great find and opens doors for much discussion ,
      but I wont try to analyse it for the simple reason mate is that,
      sometimes the truth hurts.

      Thanks Sheila ,thanks for taking the time to visit and read, so much spoken in those few moments in that clip.
      Sadly I think the words end up falling on deaf ears, some nations need to reappraise their role in the society of mankind.

    Blowing their own trumpets , instead of earning praises by others. Where are the great American aspirations and idealism? We see their soldiers and gun boats in every trouble spot in the world.

      Seems the old original ideals of America have been lost in their world of power/technology, and the desire to be recognized as the supreme race with their ideologies and beliefs being forced upon the countries of the world,America and mankind have not evolved, to this day we spend more money on defence than on humanity and at the end of the day we still fire lead bullets at each other, The Roman empire was a world power once I think.

    A great clip – and it actually looked like a few of the audience were listening in the end.

      Thank you Clowie for taking the time to visit, read and comment, certainly a very profound statement I thought.
      I do hope you are well and all is going well in your life, a very cold Saturday night here.
      I wish you much love and happiness
