If my films make one more person miserable, I’ll feel like I’ve done my job.
Woody Allen(via stoweboyd)
I can’t understand why people are frightened of new ideas. I’m frightened of the old ones.
— John Cage
If a country can’t keep wages and costs down, its production will be moved to the next poor nation willing to sacrifice its citizens in the name of economic advancement. This is what organized labor calls the “race to the bottom,” and unions have campaigned futilely for decades to stop it. Only there is no bottom, really, in the global food chain because the world has a vast backlog of very poor nations desperate for jobs and anxious to please the multinational companies that buy the cheap goods and rebrand them as J.C. Penny or Benetton or best-buy stuff at Walmart.
