The Godfather Scene between Michael Corleone & Kay Adams explains the Delusion of the Statists, better than ANY Treatise!

Al Pacino's character Michael Corleone says to his wife Kay Adams, played by Diane Keaton:

Michael Corleone: I'm working for my father now Kay. He's been sick, very sick.

Kay Adams: But you're not like him Michael. I thought you weren't going to become a man like your father. That's what you told me.

Michael Corleone: My father is no different than any other powerful man, any man who is responsible for other people, like a senator or a president.

Kay Adams: You know how naive you sound?

Michael Corleone: Why?

Kay Adams: Senators and presidents don't have men killed.

Michael Corleone: Oh. Who's being naive, Kay?

To wit:

A friend, Gail, e-mailed me about the 1988 film, “Married to the Mob.” The character Angela – played by Michelle Pfeiffer – is the widow of a mobster. She is being threatened, by the FBI, with all kinds of fabricated criminal charges, in an effort to get her to “cooperate” with them. In one scene:

Angela: “God, you people work just like the mob! There’s no difference.”

FBI Regional Director: “Oh, there’s a big difference, Mrs. deMarco. The mob is run by murdering, thieving, lying, cheating psychopaths. We work for the President of the United States of America.”

*** If you've never seen Married to the Mob (never mind the presence of anti-gun Alec Baldwin & Matthew Modine), click on the following pictures to be redirected to DailyPaul Amazon store:


The Hair, the Hair, Don't touch the Hair! Come on! Gotta love the 1980's Bensonhurst Brooklyn Hair-do!

Film trivia: Dir. Jonathan Demme did the Oscar-winning The Silence of the Lambs, right after Married to the Mob! Talk about a shift in tone!

Michelle Pfeiffer?? At age 55, still a gorgeous hottie! And, my personal favorite rendition of on-screen CatWoman.

Sorry Julie Newmar (even though she endorsed Dr. Paul!) & Eartha Kitt fans. Love them, too, but just not the era I grew up in.o/

As for Halle Berry (not even worth mentioning) and Anne Hathaway's renditions? Should stay where they belong: in the kitty litter box.

yup

good movies, always informing the unsuspecting, subconsciously.

guess that's the only up side to Hollyweird, when they do, as they rarely do, truly inform and summarize the world in succinct form.

The Matrix trilogy certainly brought up the red pill/blue pill meme along with 'what really is real' substantive questioning.

but still sad to me that George Lucas' butchered Star War prequel clearly informed the public of EXACTLY how govt sponsored false flag terrorism operates, what corporatist Banking Guilds combines do, how exactly a once great Republic falls from infiltrators within with well meaning idiots enabling it all as they standby while 'problem, reaction, solution' destroy everything as the masses busy themselves with more bread and circus decadence as the entire world fall apart around them. yet, people only saw Jar Jar Binks and his ridiculous retarded accent, and overall bad acting in the series.

conceptually, the Star Wars prequel is the best rendition/explanation for how tyrannies, false flags, and problem-reaction-solution operate, in ANY pop-culture media in recent memory.
