"When the power of love becomes stronger than the love of power, we will have peace."-Jimi Hendrix

-Senses of Cinema -

Ken Loach

"I have enormous respect for writers and I don't subscribe to the auteur theory of film-making. When I direct a film, I don't try to be the author. It's self-evident to me that a film is a collaboration, in which, if anyone is the most important contributor, it's the writer. Still, what the writer has provided is only a stage in the process. What matters is that what is actually on the celluloid is a valuable experience and that there's a sense of authenticity about what you've created." – Ken Loach



“We, with love, shall force our brothers to see themselves as they are, to cease fleeing from reality and begin to change it.”---Baldwin


“If you attack,” the high-ranking diplomat told me in Vienna, “Ahmadinejad will be the new Saddam Hussein of the Arab world, but with more credibility and more power. You must bite the bullet and sit down with the Iranians.”
The diplomat went on, “There are people in Washington who would be unhappy if we found a solution. They are still banking on isolation and regime change. This is wishful thinking.” He added, “The window of opportunity is now.”

After the War

  By Howard Zinn

 The war against Iraq, the assault on its people, the occupation of its cities, will come to an end, sooner or later. The process has already begun. The first signs of mutiny are appearing in Congress. The first editorials calling for withdrawal from Iraq are beginning to appear in the press. The anti-war movement has been growing, slowly but persistently, all over the country. see story....

"Choose your leaders with wisdom and forethought. To be led by a coward is to be
controlled by all that the coward fears. To be led by a fool is to be led by the
opportunists who control the fool. To be led by a thief is to offer up your most
precious treasures to be stolen. To be led by a liar is to ask to be lied to. To
be led by a tyrant is to sell yourself and those you love into slavery."
