Let's see. You didn't tell Eddie directly, I surmise, because you do not say that you did. But you believe that your words on this forum had an effect on him, and I have to surmise that he read them because you say he clearly didn't appreciate them. Do I have that correct? Did he ever tell you he read them? Do you talk to him?
I didn't ask about the rationale about showing these films. They are good films. I told you that. I specifically asked why you keep pestering us about them HERE. And you are telling me that you keep repeating (not SHOWING, I asked about this forum, not the potential viewers) your favorite social-oriented films to us because a new generation "needs" to see them. But do you mean to tell me that you are addressing this generation through this obscure forum?
And because you do not say that Mr. Muller actually is thinking in terms of "resistance", then I surmise in answer to my questions, you are saying he hasn't told you that and you have no evidence that he has thought in those terms.
Don, why must I surmise answers that you could provide directly? Why can't you give straight answers to straight questions?
You did not answer at all whether this forum is appropriate for political discussions.
And why do you continue to slip in political characterizations, vague as they are, like "the tragedy of November 8, 2016" and "the escalating chaos and calamity that we're seeing in Washington DC"?
Do we all of us here have a license to say whatever we want in this vast area of politics and social theory? Is that what the Blackboard is about? I'm still waiting for a straight answer to that question.
Do you have any evidence to support your thought that the latter is "certainly more urgent and pivotal in Eddie's decision to screen these films"? How could you know this unless he at least told you such? Do you discuss these matters with him?
