Fury Road's not a remake. It's another sequel, with Max still living out his life in the wasteland, having fallen further and further into madness, wracked with guilt and memories of people he failed to save (namely his family).
Advocates of social progress and civil equality always eventually emerge victorious, and the stubborn, narrow-minded bigots clinging to the status quo always eventually lose.
Maybe not in terms of the planet's population, but in many industries and in positions of power and authority, men are still a majority.
You don't typically go to a Mad Max movie for the plot.
I can't hear you over this tiny, tiny violin.
P.S. have any of these idiots ever heard of the Streisand Effect?
Their ideology that the world is perfectly fair how it is, and if you want to change anything, then you hate capitalism and America.
Recognizing that the wording in the Constitution is often vague and open to interpretation, and suggesting that historical context is useful when examining the content, is not "revisionism". One of the oldest political debates since the birth of the US and the ratification of the Constitution, along side size/role of government, was whether in how literally to obey the words in the Constitution.
There's something sort of romantic about the idea of the citizenry being able to arm themselves to defend against sudden government tyranny, but I have to wonder if a modern "militia" could really stand up against things like tanks and missile strikes. This isn't the 18th century anymore, so I'm not sure that the spirit behind the 2nd ammendment is all that relevant these days. That said, I'm not really opposed to people being free to defend their home/property/family or to engage in sport like hunting, but let's call a spade a spade and stop acting like we're defending ourselves from the red coats.
It doesn't matter if she used to be a Playboy model, or if she used to build skyscrapers, or if she used to be a circus performer: the only thing that's relevant is that she's not and never has been a medical professional. She's just as wrong as any other anti-vaxxer, the fact that she posed naked for a magazine doesn't make her more wrong and doesn't specifically have any bearing on what she knows or doesn't know.
I'm sure it's a majority, but 99.9% is extremely, naively, high.
Actually, I said a majority (I used the word "largely") of the males involved in e-sports (a very tiny niche minority of all men) behave that way. Not sure how pointing out an observable statistic of a subset means I hate an entire set of people, or how such strawmen can be considered "insightful".
Or maybe it's because that 90% majority of males is largely toxic, vulgar, immature, misogynist, and unwelcoming, and say shit like "OMFG A WOMAN IS HERE!" and tell women what they should do or say or feel about the men who act that way.
Historically speaking, America is a teenager compared to Europe. The overconfidence and smugness is typical. If the US lasts a few hundred more years, it'll likely be more humble and mellow about things. Right now, it still feels like it has something to prove and that it's invincible.
Technological progress has merely provided us with more efficient means for going backwards. -- Aldous Huxley
