3705 Influence

Tuesday, March 19, 2013

"To influence the masses, aim first at the least intelligent. ...
Undermine the faith of the masses in their leaders."
-- Foxy Loxy, in Disney's 1943 "Chicken Little" --


The green quote above is from the 1943 Disney short (8:48) "Chicken Little", at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vnp4kj5lLOU.  It's definitely not the Chicken Little we all knew.  It's very political, and very much relevant to today's politics, although when it came out, I suspect it wasn't supposed to be about us.

It's scary.


A lot of people think this next video is cute. I find it sad. There's no proof that the little guy did it, but there does seem to be evidence that he's not at the cool kids' table, and he knows it.  That may be what's actually going on.  Maybe he's sad and resigned and maybe a bit afraid, not guilty.

Notice the ingratiating grin at the very beginning? Dogs who have been abused will react like that when anybody raises their voice.
