Oliver Stone - Socialist; Anti-Corruptionist - tough combo

Oliver recently got big points in my personal book after I saw his flick "south of the border." He seems to be half-way there. He sees the obvious corruption in BOTH PARTIES. He sees it, and he's exposing it. Good.

Now he just needs to understand that commuism and socialism are JUST as corrupt.

Even IF some south american countries have good socialist ideas....socialism is incompatible with human nature, i'd say with the Laws of Nature. It's UNNATURAL to live one's life putting other's first. I don't mean that figuratively, i mean to literally value someone else over one's own self. That is completely antithetical to LIFE. All life is designed to look out for #1 FIRST. Then, everyone else gets factored in.

That's what makes capitalism great. It capitalizes on that fact. When you look out for your own interests first, you AND the rest of society benefit. Want lots of money for yourself? Then you need to be a productive member of society. In theory it's a good idea. In reality, an economy that pits man against man is destined to fail. That TOO is unnatural.

So, I for one WELCOME WITH OPEN ARMS, a movie director releasing hours and hours of documentary-style evidence of America's true history, its true leaders, and the continuing dumbing down of the population.

Good on 'em.

to bad oliver stone voted for obama and is a hypocrite.

Google "oliver stone vote obama" then check 6 or 7 links down. I would copy n paste the url but my phone is being stupid. Some one please post the url.

Who should he have voted for?

Romney? LOL!

So what

When people start waking up, it's not only smart to recognize you share common cause, it's good manners.

so he saw the light in less a month or 2?

c'mon. just last nov he was blowing smoke up Obama's bung hole.

And something tells me, even if his dislike of Obama's empire is genuine, he is not ready to embrace free markets and shrinking the size and scope of gov. Embracing a statist because he doesn't like Obama is stupid. Why aren't you embracing all the neocons like newt gingrich. He dislikes obama too.

logic people.

Stone

i do not recall this

but I would be happy to be surprised. Can you provide a sound bite or video of this endorsement.

Jan. 24th of this year

Politico, The Hill and Buzzfeed among others, reported Oliver Stone's statement, he would vote for Ron Paul over Obama if Ron Paul were to win the republican nomination.

if that is the case

then that is certainly a pleasant surprise. But i still don't trust the man from hollywood. I need to see him come our way some more before I can have any respect for him.

Would still be nice to see some video or links. But i do trust a DPer so I dont doubt your truthfulness.

I don't know of any video but

you may want to look at an interview Stone did with Rock Cellar Magazine entitled Director Oliver Stone On History And America, Jim Morrison & Ron Paul. You can find it online.
