Recently the esteemed actor Leonardo DiCaprio went all anti-corporate with this gem of a tirade; “I want to share this award with all the First Nations people represented in this film and all the Indigenous communities around the world. It is time that we recognized your history and that we protect your indigenous lands from corporate interests and people that are out there to exploit them. It is time that we heard your voice and protected this planet for future generations.”
Uhhhh, does Dopey DiCaprio NOT understand that he’s employed by one of the leading global corporate outfits, America’s media and entertainment conglomerate?
Not only that, BUT the primary purpose of America’s global entertainment empire is to foster and further Western, specifically American, imperialism.
YES, our entertainment is packaged and sold around the world to (1) sell our culture, along with its fast food, fast and reckless sex, and throw-away consumerism to the rest of the world, while (2) undermining the other existing cultures around the world that don’t neatly fit into our own hyper-consumerist, “disposable” culture.
Either Leonardo DiCaprio is an utter moron or he’s a real bad liar!
Now I find it very hard to believe, given his acting abilities, his ability to breathe life into two dimensional pen/paper characters, memorize scads of lines, etc. that Mr. DiCaprio is a moron...so he must just be a really bad liar.
BUT that rant is FUNNY stuff!
Kinda like Jack Welch railing against Corporations, or Warren Buffett ranting against unbridled wealth. Indeed, very much like a rapist railing against sex.
Such folks need someone to tell them, "STOP IT....Just STOP IT! You're doing it all wrong!"....And yes, that goes for DiCaprio too.
