The Fourth Identity

The Fourth Estate is dead, 

It’s not just a matter of defending the Administration, although there’s probably a bit of that. It’s something deeper, which has to do with attitudes toward authority. Proud of their craft and good at what they do, successful journalists like to think of themselves as fiercely independent. But, at the same time, they are part of the media and political establishment that stands accused of ignoring, or failing to pick up on, an intelligence outrage that’s been going on for years. 

Long live the #fourthestate!

This is worse than “1984,” because in some way the world enables this “persecution.” 
We buy, they hurt. 
Curious what the connection between the manufacturers and the communist party is in China?

Stirring letter tucked by a Chinese factory worker into Halloween decorations found in Kmart exposes China’s forced labor – but not without great risk.

Few are willing to brave the disapproval of their peers, the censure of their colleagues, the wrath of their society.


Moral courage is a rarer commodity than bravery in battle or great intelligence.


Yet it is the one essential, vital quality for those who seek to change a world that yields most painfully to change.

Looks like Baumbach’s “Frances Ha” will be a great companion piece to PT Anderson’s “The Master.”

Yes, romantic love is an all-encompassing illness of the heart, but without a best friend to guide you, life becomes less tolerable.

When it comes to matters of love, it’s often platonic devotion that proves the most intimate and carries the most weight in one’s life. It’s the love stories of friendship, the decades-spanning, unbreakable connection to someone that stays around as lovers come and go. Yes, romantic love is an all-encompassing illness of the heart, but without a best friend to guide you, life becomes less tolerable. 
Cinema has long been awash in tales of romantic love, of course, but it’s rare to see a tale of love between two female best friends, especially one that genuinely shows what it is like to have that kind of soul mate, without whom everything else would be askew. But with Noah Baumbach’s latest film, Frances Ha, we see one woman’s journey of self-discovery, ignited by a fractured friendship.

“ I’m not against religion in the sense that I feel I can’t tolerate it, but I think written into the rubric of religion is the certainty of its own truth. And since there are 6,000 religions currently on the face of the earth, they can’t all be right. And only the secular spirit can guarantee those freedoms and it’s the secular spirit that they contest. ”

But the more we define “success” as that which appeals to as many people as possible, the more we forgive dumb things because they went “viral,” the more we monetize stupid bullshit because we’re at a brief, fleeting moment in our culture where we’ve convinced ourselves that’s what matters…


The beauty of the Web is that it belongs to you, and me, and to each of us, individually. What are other people doing on the Internet? Who the hell cares? I’ll just find people who like doing what I’m doing and talk to them. Is that the best way to make money on the Web? Probably not. But that’s their problem: Not ours.
