And Maybe Even Get Bitter

August 10, 2011

And in conjunction with the previous post, here’s one of my favourite New Rules which I think bears particular resonance at the moment.

Forget the difference in context, forget his jokes and forget why he explains how socialism can actually work better than capitalism at times. For a few fleeting moments, this is Bill Maher at his most earnest, and, like how he warns, bitter.

And in the end he’s right. If you’re not in the game, then you become indifferent to the fate of the game.

And goddamnit our game is worth fighting for.
