    I Like this quote I dislike this quote“This is a deeply uncanny and very troubling development, it exists, and it wants to take us back. It wants to take us, I mean, way back. I mean sure, they want to go back before the 70ís and the 60ís to the 50ís, no doubt about that. They also want to go back before the New Deal to the 20ís, well they also want to go back before the Progressive Era to the Gilded Age. Well, not quite, they also want to go back before the Emancipation Proclamation to the days of slavery, not even, what they want to do is take us back to a moment prior to the Enlightenment; they want to take us back to a moment when faith registered more than reason. They want to take us back to an imaginary age of absolute moral clarity, when good was good and evil was evil and everyone could see the difference. They want to take us back to an imaginary Manichean age when youíre either with us or against us, which means you either are us or weíll exterminate you because we can only tolerate ourselves, we can only tolerate those who share our values. If this movement were to be given a name, I think it would most appropriate to call it Christo-Fascism, and if anyone objects to my using the word fascism, because it seems so redolent of the Axis powers, and after all we valiantly defeated fascism once, well understand this about fascism, when it arrives it never shows up in the discarded costume of some other country, and when fascism comes here, its not going to be wearing a toothbrush mustache with a luger in his belt and go goose-stepping around the mall, because thatís Germany. And its precisely characteristic of fascism, that it seems absolutely, totally expressive of the homeland, it seems completely familiar, itís when 150% America puts a flag on itís lapel and a cross around itís neck and a real folksy way a talkiní, but just because itís red, white and blue, doesnít mean itís American.”

    I Like this quote I dislike this quote“Like many stories, 'Harry Potter' is making an appeal to kids' desire for independence and their anxiety about it. ... It may not be a conscious effort, but seasoned story tellers develop a certain instinct for what will fascinate.”

    I Like this quote I dislike this quote“The effect of the fantasy is based in part on the ambivalence kids feel toward their parents and independence. Kids want and fear being left alone. These stories and film deal with that ambivalence.”
