I'm mad as hell and I'm not going to take it anymore!
Some folks of failing memories or tender years may ask this question, but many of us still remember. We remember that in 1976, while our nation was still writhing from the agonies of the Vietnam War disaster and our mega corporations were launching themselves upon the global scene, a strange phenomenon appeared in our neighborhoods. People were going around screaming
I'm mad as hell and I'm not
going to take it anymore!
The 1976 Oscar-winning movie NETWORK is what happened.
NETWORK was a biting, hilarious, prophetic satire of empty minded entertainment mills masquerading as news programs chaired by pontificating talking heads, a biting indictment of an America heedlessly, destructively rushing to global dominance, recklessly driven by a totally out of control financial sector that
cares about nothing except its bottom line and special privileges.
