Abbiamo imparato che l’eccitazione, che è un’agitazione stimolata, è felicità, ma non lo è. E abbiamo imparato che i sentimenti vengono dall’esterno, il che non è pure vero. Pertanto trascorriamo la nostra vita alla ricerca di varie forme di stimoli con l’illusione che ci ‘faranno felici’.

The Sun (2010)We give each other gifts, eat dinner at a nice restaurant, and return to my apartment for dessert. Christianity Today (2000)My husband and daughter are now eating home cooked dinners and a lot of vegetables, which makes me feel good. The Sun (2006)This is just one question thrown up by the seating plan at the lord mayor’s annual dinner for the bankers and merchants of the City last week.

And his guest apparently never fully researched the subject of her book actually suggesting that things might have gone differently with the Tea Party, if the economic collapse HAD OCCURRED ON A REPUBLICAN PRESIDENT WATCH! Was she on the moon during the crash and bailouts of 2008? And how about some discussion of the astro turf aspects of the rise of the Tea Party? The principal organizers of the local tea party events are the well funded right wing think tanks Americans for Prosperity and FreedomWorks. Both of theseprovided supportand public relations assistance to this supposedly spontaneous movement (along with Fox and the Koch brothers). How has PBS fallen so low? If Hitler was alive today, would we see him given equal time with his victims on TV, in the name of fairness and balance? We can only hope that this kind of journalism gets swept away with the rest of corporate unfairness.The Tea Party is the outcome of corporate subversion of the media and corporate collusion with fundamentalist religion to brand government as Limbaugh, Oreilly et al spew their corporate apologetics and blame the victim capitalist whitewash to vast audiences of frustrated and insecure sheep.

Zindell, David The Broken God (1993)But partly it is the fear of looking foolish. Times, Sunday Times (2006)We just stand around feeling foolish. Times, Sunday Times (2014)It might make them feel foolish. Dietro a un trucco che non impedisce l’evoluzione sottile del suo personaggio, riconosciamo lo sguardo di Oldman, la riserva segreta dove conserva quella facoltà incredibile di terrorizzare, tante volte dimostrata sullo schermo. Il re ha paura, la segretaria ha paura, l’emaciato (e straordinario) Lord Halifax di Stephen Dillane ha paura di lui, montagna di eloquenza e forza espressiva in grado di mandare la parola sui campi di battaglia. Hanno paura davvero perché Gary Oldman trova il DNA di Churchill, allacciando il lavoro interiore con le capacità fisiche fuori norma.
