I agree that it would be a mistake to remake this. It’s a complicated movie, wrapped in simple film-making, which was clearly a complicated process. Read more

I may have been unclear. BIG is the firm who designed it!

It’s never the end of starchitects. It’s reasonable to wonder who made copywrited images, though. Also, reasonable to wonder who got the 600k s.f. project. Read more

It’s really strange that none of the articles on this mention the Architects. Not even the linked articles mention them, which is just weird.

Yeah, I wonder this, a lot, but I also wonder if I’m wrong to wonder. Adaptation requires reimagining, but can still be faithful to source material.

Ugh. I think we’re going to need space for a while first. I seriously get sick to my stomach thinking about trying to engage opposing viewpoints if the political climate is like this.

I am not trying to downplay economic policy, but it is not a single determining factor. My comment about Farage (and Trump) is that they are loud voices and they are not relying on dog-whistle. They are overt. The difference is relevant and the overt being considered acceptable is worse. Read more

I agree with you. My only point was that even if he were trolling, it adds up to the same thing as if he is sincere. He’s doing real damage. Seriously, you’ve articulated what I’m trying to say (and the article says) very clearly.

I would have to argue that the overton window had already shrunk under 12 years under republican presidents (after a very brief window with a democratic president). Obama ran right of center on some economic issues, but was responding to a serious recession and no assurance that he would have a congress that he could Read more

They are also being told by the leader of their movement that violence toward dissenting views is an appropriate response.

I think that blaming a politician who has been out of office for a decade and a half is a stretch. You’d have to spread it out, if its over that timeline. Bush (2), for instance, bears more blame for how the US treated different conflicts in Muslim-majority countries as if they were the same. There was also a lot of Read more

I really don’t like how much I think you’re prediction will bear out.

This is why it doesn’t even matter if we feel like Trump is just trolling everyone. He is making our country worse. Terrible people are no longer ashamed of themselves.

I suspect that his spider-like reaction time means that his vision isn’t an issue, but I like all your other ideas!
