Movie Review: Outside the Wire (Stop Killer Robots)

Propaganda is subtle. Especially American propaganda written by the best and the brightest to glamorize the military industrial complex with an air of dystopian criticism. This movie makes it clear that its brand of dystopia is propaganda asset. Netflix feature: Outside the Wire, starring Anthony Mackie of Notorious fame, is a dystopian morality screenplay about the dangers of autonomous drones. ... Read More »

Watch: The War at Home

We are big supporters of Scott Noble and cannot recommend his films enough. Our recommendation would be to start at the beginning of his catalog available on his website www.metanoia-films.org so you can truly see how his documentary style has found a place of its own. When We interviewed him 10 years ago he told us a story about how ... Read More »

When to Mask: A Personal Essay

I was working in a corporate law firm as a file clerk in San Diego after I got out of the Navy in 2007. It was right in bourgie La Hoya where the drug dealer lived in the American version of the movie Traffic. It was mind numbing work — barely supported my life in Pacific Beach. I thought my ...

Movie Review: Bombshell

Outside of pedigree and nepotism, all that is left is the lewdness associated with shameful means of success. I imagine Roger Ailes was one of the masked men in Kubrick’s last film Eyes Wide Shut — bringing women from the newsroom as a commodity to the sons and daughters of the confederacy behind Venetian masks.

Appreciative Inquiry

I just looked up the word “appreciate” in one of my old dictionaries and found one of the definitions to be: Increase in value. I like that definition. Appreciative Inquiry is a tool used in business today to cause people to look at themselves and business situations in a positive way. Too often in business we ask ourselves the question ...

This War, A Poem By Tara Schley

This War. Put away all your weapons and war. No more fighting, tears or sorrow. When you walk through the streets, there will be no need to cower or scurry. You may stroll with head held straight, darting not from worry. The mothers tired of, children under feet, will send them out once again, to play in the streets. The ... Read More »

Motivation Monday XII

photo “09/11/11 at memorial” by:  Karol Olesiak On this President’s Day, we can say with some certainty what we should be commemorating is future lack of dependence of representative leadership.
