Food for thought at jp’s site.
In a world where “reality” shows pandering to the prurient interests of couch potato voyeurs hold sway reality is anathema, it is an irritant that goes against the grain.
This particular series may not be of that genre but said couch potatoes will believe it to be an accurate portrayal, much the same as they do most of the tripe that is presented.
Of interest to me is that inspite of what has come to light Redford has never made any attempt to correct or admit the obvious inaccuracies in the “cutting edge” Incident at Oglala – most current and notable that the mystery assassin Mr. X was as phony as everything else related to AIM – that being the case Incident should be presented as a work of fiction, a low budget melodrama.
Maybe the integrity of such admissions in pursuit of “truth” is thought not to apply to celebrities or “liberal” news outlet.
But that fails to alter the fact that the road is indeed red, covered with the blood of AIM victims.
All strength has it’s foundation in truth, whether it be strength of character or deed, anything less than that is pretense.
All purpose is qualified by intent, and neither film nor propaganda has the ability to whitewash that.
Truth stands, it remains, perhaps battered and bruised, but like the nations….. remains.
