      I was born in 1968, the year Wallerstein calls one of “world revolution”. It was a revolution that both failed and succeeded: women and minorities got more rights, often a lot more, but the end result was an oligarchy, where most people were equal in their lack of power, and where every year saw ordinary people becoming poorer, no matter what the official st […]

Everything I know about politics I learned from Monty Python

From Life of Brian, the best political documentary ever made:

And so it goes…

  1. No wonder that movie was banned in so many places. We can’t have people using sarcasm and metaphor with such reckless abandon.

    • Good grief! Sarcasm? Metaphor? Horrors!

    • It was? I saw it at the theater when it came out. I watched every episode of of Monty Python Flying Circus when PBS showed it in the U.S. My favorite episodes are the Ministry of Silly Walks, The Norwegian Blue, and Dennis Moore.

  2. I love “Life of Brian” and all things Monty Python!

    • Wow….making Bush II look good is hard to do but Obama has a special knack for it.

    • I’m surprised that the direction Obama is giving Hillary is made public. Is it a leak?

      • 😳 I should have clicked the memo link at FP. The memo sent to Hillary is posted at the WH website.

        • This administration is not even pretending to be teeny-weeny progressive. I wonder if we will ever hear from the human rights groups?

  3. This has probably been posted here before but ran across this yesterday and couldn’t help but smile.

    It is a don’t miss letter about the requests of a censor and is probably best viewed in its original form.

  4. I watched the movie recently on IFC. Don’t forget the part where the woman, the only sane person in the group, comes to crucified Brian at the end telling him that now she understands what he is doing and thanks him for becoming a martyr.

  5. Heh. Love that.
