Buying two seats at the movies.

Next time you go to the movies, buy two seats for yourself alone and leave one seat empty. Then, in that empty seat, put your intellect, put your educated self, put your discernment, your judgment, your taste, your standards, your morals.

Get up at the end of the previews and take your other self with you. Go for a cup of slave-labor-picked $4 coffee. Have a heart to heart with your other self. Ask your other self what happened to this country. How in my generation we went from Billy Wilder to Van Wilder.

How did it all go so wrong, so fast?

money took over. the money people took over.
So in their world, which we now live in, having feelings, having brains for anything other than the counting of money is unimportant.
