I was fortunate to go to a screening of “Good night, and good luck”, hosted by the Capital Times, a fantastic local paper in Madison.
The crowd was full of people who were around in the McCarthy era, and their faces were stern, and you heard “deja vu” a few times.
The fear of that time was quite palpable.
It is no mistake that this film is out at this time. The parallels to the current fear-mongering, and lies, are quite apparant.
John Nichols, who writes for the Cap Times as well as The Nation, started off the evening talking about why we were all there.
I hope we can turn things around. I am hopeful, especially as friends from the right are acknowledging that the current regime does not match them as republicans, and more and more lies come out.
