Creeping Bitterness

So much of what we call political speech today is simply raw anger. It may be expressed in words or actions. It identifies with the tribe of the similarly resentful, because then the speaker or the doer may imagine his political speech to be “powerful” and “justified” by the concurrence of his peers. It may have something to do with a real conflict in society, but too often it is just an expression of a person’s creeping bitterness.

I write, act, and produce films in Los Angeles. Everything else is conjecture.
