Are You Mad as Hell Yet?

 

Peter Finch’s words in Network (1976) are so relevant after this election. This movie came to my mind last week, especially this iconic scene, after living with the 2016 U.S. election fallout. I have grieved. I have reasoned. I have explained. I have stepped away from people whose choice for president affects my civil rights and safety. I have watched hate crimes increase. All of this, and we still have the same weak media coverage that existed during the election.

Peter Finch’s words…

I’m as mad as hell, and I’m not going to take this anymore!

I have reached that point? Have you?
