Re-re-run of currently watching

Does exactly what it says on the tin. Some of the nonsense contained herein may be very loosely related to The Sisters of Mercy, but I wouldn't bet your PayPal account on it. In keeping with the internet's general theme nothing written here should be taken as Gospel: over three quarters of it is utter gibberish, and most of the forum's denizens haven't spoken to another human being face-to-face for decades. Don't worry your pretty little heads about it. Above all else, remember this: You don't have to stay forever. I will understand.

everybody should watch this film without exception. its called Obey and is a searing endictment of the way of things

This is a film based on the book "Death of the Liberal Class" by journalist and Pulitzer prize winner, Chris Hedges.

It charts the rise of the Corporate State, and examines the future of obedience in a world of unfettered capitalism, globalisation, staggering inequality and environmental change.

and there's that horrible misrepresentation again: "..murdered for dressing as a goth". No! she wasnt dressing as a goth- she WAS a goth!
"murdered for being a goth" is what it should say! :x :x

thank you Barrry, that means a lot. :notworthy: i watched the "murdered for being different" BBC docudrama again this morning and cried my eyes out. One of her murderers is eligible for parole next february. Where's the justice in that?

i'm not sure what the review process is, or how they feedback the results of any review, but that's the comment that was raised with their editorial team.

language is hard, but important.

Thanks for that Boss.

I agree with Lee, "murdered for dressing as a goth" makes it sound like Sophie was on her way to a fancy dress party or something.

sadly most folks in media city are working from home - the only people who go into the office are production critical staff, who can't WFH for whatever reason
