The little animated history of America was quite cute, I thought...
It is shocking that the US is similar to many other countries and yet we are the only ones with a hysterically huge amount of murders via firearm. It has to be fear, or actually paranoia. What else could it be? Moore really didn't come up with a conclusive answer, but he was leaning towards that, and I agree. Charlton Heston spoke twice about "protecting freedom." Paranoia. The Michigan militia say they exist because they have to defend their families, since the cops certainly can't. Paranoia.
So what causes this paranoia? Moore liked to play up the media aspect, pumping fear into our homes 24/7, and I do agree that everything is being sensationalized these days...but when I visit my parents in Florida, their news is benign and happy, since that area of Florida is relatively benign and happy.
I lied, I did laugh a lot
but I mean...it was a jaw-dropping movie. The funniest part was when he started walking into people's houses in Canada. I mean, I don't live in Columbine or Flint USA, but I certainly don't live in Windsor, Canada, either. If anyone walked into my house uninvited, I'd take a couple pops at him for sure.
But I don't own a gun. I guess that's the point.
