OUR CRUMBLING DEMOCRACY
The movie gives her a great villain, too. (The villain is unquestionably hers, not Max’s.) The first time we see Immortan Joe, we see his repulsive back lesions. Then we see his underlings putting plastic armor covered in fake medals over that mottled skin. And we see Joe standing before the people he’s oppressing, bellowing, “I am your redeemer!” As luck would have it, Donald Trump declared his presidential candidacy one month and one day after Fury Road opened in the U.S., and there’s no way Miller saw Trump coming. But I can’t watch that scene now without thinking of Trump, his bearing strikingly similar, declaring, “I am your voice!” at the Republican National Convention a year later.
There’s so much Trump in Joe: the overbearing and vainglorious rhetoric, the hogging of all natural resources, the willingness to treat people like property, the disappointing offspring. They both command hordes of crazy-eyed, pale-skinned young male psychos, and they both boast nature-defying nimbuses of hair. The real differences, as far as I can tell, are Joe’s actual leader charisma and Joe’s willingness to ride into battle himself. (Admittedly, the fact that Steve Mnuchin, Trump’s vampiric treasury secretary, was a Fury Road executive producer complicates this whole parallel. I don’t know what to do with that. Even pieces of shit can, I suppose, be involved with great things from time to time.)
We recently talked about politics in Taiwan, and someone I follow just linked to this lecture on the rise and fall of populism in Taiwan. I'll try to watch it over the weekend, but wanted to share in case it's of interest to you guys. I suspect they'll discuss why Han Kuo-yu aka Korean Fish aka Taiwan's Trump lost in 2020: https://youtu.be/-k5-nChzJgk

When you get up in the morning and the light is hurt your head
The first thing you do when you get up out of bed
Is hit that streets a-runnin' and try to beat the masses
And go get yourself some cheap sunglasses
Oh yeah, oh yeah, oh yeah
Spied a little thing and I followed her all night
In a funky fine Levis and her sweater's kind of tight
She had a west coast strut that was as sweet as molasses
But what really knocked me out was her cheap sunglasses
Now go out and get yourself some big black frames
With the glass so dark they won't even know your name
And the choice is up to you cause they come in two classes
Rhinestone shades or cheap sunglasses
