Oscar Voter Reveals Brutally Honest Ballot

Conversely, with 12 Years a Slave, you don’t even crack a smile, but it was interesting, admirable and well done; I must say, though, that contrary to what some have asserted, it’s not as if it required great courage to make that movie — maybe if you made it in Mississippi in 1930.

Exactly.  It seems like one of these “courageous” black opuses comes down the pike every other year or so – they alternate with the “courageous” Holocaust epics.  None of them require any courage – unless you think it takes a great deal of bravery to make a film that will receive accolades from everybody with any pretensions to progressivism at all.

About Bill Quick

I am a small-l libertarian. My primary concern is to increase individual liberty as much as possible in the face of statist efforts to restrict it from both the right and the left. If I had to sum up my beliefs as concisely as possible, I would say, "Stay out of my wallet and my bedroom," "your liberty stops at my nose," and "don't tread on me." I will believe that things are taking a turn for the better in America when married gays are able to, and do, maintain large arsenals of automatic weapons, and tax collectors are, and do, not.
