ok I can’t remember if I’ve mentioned this but I keep thinking about the story of Jack and the Beanstalk and how the best character in the whole story is only briefly mentioned. We’re given such limited amount of information about the guy that sells Jack the beans. essentially:
- This guy has access to MAGIC BEANS
- He either has NO USE for MAGIC BEANS or so many of them that he can just dispose of them
- He really badly wants a cow
Why is the whole story not about this guy
"Oh, there’s a threat to America. Yeah, yeah, yeah. Back to that fucking COPS show, because I’ll tell you who the threat to freedom…. no no no, not to freedom. I’ll tell you who the threat to the status quo is in this country. It’s us! That’s why they show you shows like fucking COPS. So you know that State Power will win, and we’ll bust your house down, and we’ll fucking bust you anytime we want. That’s the message! Why don’t they just have a show called Storm Trooper?"
