So Parasite did great at the Oscars and looking at the rest of the director's films Snow Piercer and Okja are pretty REDpilled as well
So is Bong Joon Ho /ourguy/ despite being a southron?

I had no idea this was made by the same guy that made Okja. That film is based beyond belief, basically a recruitment film for the Animal Liberation Front.

I was feeling pretty dumb for not being able to understand all the business jargon shown (specially because they were all in English), but then the movie literally said that's the point

Noticed a lot people talking about Tolkien’s works and philosophy. So, I created a thread specifically dedicated for that and other things related to it, like the movies and games.

yeah aftermath wasn't too bad as its own series, i think most people just dislike it as a replacement for the old EU's imperial collapse where there was rampant warlordism for years. between that and Alphabet Squadron the sequel era has a good deal of surprisingly good literature surrounding it, considering the fairly middling response to the trilogy itself.

>The Chinese don't pollute to ridiculously disproportionate levels.
They do, but it's being cleaned up and unlike the USA, they are developing and growing, so the amount of waste is expected. Still they're far worse than the USSR in many environmental regards.

>>12837
>The idea of a feedback loop was popularized by malthus
That does not intrinsically make it untrue or Malthusian. The bible holds lines that are similar to Communist theory, that doesn't mean Communism is Catholic or Catholicism is Communist. Positive and Negative Feedback loops are observed in biology and are undeniable.
>Where did you get the idea that we are going to buy air
1) If you were a bit more aware, there is plenty of cynical humor common discussions that, after water and everything else is turned into a sold commodity, the next will be clean air/filters. FFS, even the shitty Lorax movie portrays this (also the Celestial Dragons from One Piece). It also has precedent in real life, given the toxicity of the current air. In India there are Oxygen 'bars' (pic related).
>From movies
No actually. My work is environmental science, and a common discussion for policies is the allocation of resources, with serious ideas about making water only a sold commodity to "reduce wastefulness" with discussions involving. Films and books reflect reality, not the other way around, The writings of Huxley and Orwell did not dictate the current progression of capitalism, they reflected the then future prospects.
>Population and development would keep growing forever despite any imminent reason to stop
Exponential Growth metrics come to a hard stop because of carrying capacity. If a species does not adhere to the capacity (or in humanity's option, raise said capacity), they will rocket up exponentially past it, and then crash just as hard, and given that Porky always benefits from crises, what do you think will happen?

*involving Air/oxygen commodification as a future concept. The easiest way to control someone is to not only control a vital resource, but also convince them that you control it rightfully, a la the head of Nestle, who stated that water ought not be free, but controlled (by corporations) all while Nestle is abusing water supplies far more than any city population.

If you want a real original story about climate change etc. turning into a pre-apocalypse check out Ben Elton's novel "Stark" it was written back in the 80's but now it's starting to look ahead of it's time. It even had a TV series
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stark_(TV_series)

It's themes include
- Air pollution
- The Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament
- Displacement of Indigenous peoples from their land
- Far right politics
- Finance
- Global warming
- Nuclear power
- Racism
- Recreational drug use
- Unrequited love
- Uranium mining
- White supremacy

I always thought the post apocalyptic look of Battlefield Earth was cool. I know the movie wasn't the best, but frankly I really enjoyed it, and think it's extremely over-hated. Travolta is such fun as a character, the alien designs were humanoid yet still distinctly alien (somewhat like the Yautja) and each alien and character had a distinct face and look rather than being generic as fuck, even the mooks were memorable to me. Sure there is some gung-ho Americana (like the Jets vs Alien fighter-craft scene) but it's based on a book written by an American, what are they supposed to write? Frankly if this movie had some problems ironed out (and maybe a few good one liners from a famous actor playing the protagonist), I think it would probably have gotten the same cult-following that Independence Day did, especially since it has a very similar cheesy tone. John Travolta is plays his role excellently and the Psychlos are very fun villains and the movie over-all has a lot of personality.

A sequel could have finished the story and would have been great with all the additional species. There is always talk about how terrible the movie was, but that's just in comparison to the book, which is always the case. The differences were to make it possible to make a movie. It is unrealistic to compare movies to books, they rarely hold up.

What the hell is this?

Maybe rather than complaining about poor people he should be complaining about rich people not giving adequate funding to all schools . Things like "high school ranking" are stupid. If all schools were properly funded then schools could all give IB and AP classes as options. People who study hard can still get all college credit and IB classes while people who don't study can coast on regular classes. School funding should become a state and federal thing rather than the burden being on local property values.

 No.19422

>>19421

It seems like thats the problem he's describing. Lower income students means less funding means more rich people leave and creates a underfunded school that has less electives and chances for students to get opportunities in college credit.

>Muh Public Schooling
Public Schooling as a rule in the USA is garbage regardless, housing or not. In the Boston area? It's fucking awful most of the time. ESL has nothing to do with it, and if the system tanks because of a large number of illiterate immigrants, than that's a very fragile and shitty system to begin with.

>>19422
>more rich people leave
They're not leaving anywhere LOL, they weren't going to nor investing in these Public Schools because the rich go to private schools, OR the Public School is just a token diploma path before jumping into college through some pocket-padded recommendations.

Joker movie released, it attacks capitalism and is basically anti-capitalist propaganda showing the masses rising up against the bourgeoisie and capitalism cutting off a guys mental health support so he becomes a mass murderer. Media attacks the movie both pretending it's shit and that it has a dangerous message.

Immediately right-wingers think wow this movie resonates with me it shows how communism is bad and men are mistreated gonna go watch more Jordan "Lobsters" Peterson. The rightwing projects itself onto the Joker because they're incels and the sympathy one should have for Arthur gets twisted by their minds into a projection of themselves, lonely unloved and mentally ill.

It's not communist propaganda even though it is anti-capitalist. Joker isn't a revolutionary, he says so himself it was essentially accidental. The revolts with the joker masks were also more just populist rioting than anything outright communist, and that's fine, it doesn't need to be an overt ideology to carry across a message.

What's your personality type? INFP gang represent. Also daily reminder that MBTI and even Jungian cognitive functions are not a concrete analysis of how people behave, it's only a general prediction of how people behave over a period of time when faced with various situations.

This INTJ are psychos meme is stupid imo. intuitives tend to be nerds/deep thinkers/little scientists/visionaries. That type of mindset isn't well suited to naked egoism. Probably most dark personalities are gonna be extroverted sensors. Even machievellians would be more like ISTJ/ISTP again imo, with the notable exception of ENTJ which is the most practical and material focused of intuitives.
