So many in and out groups fit the bill. It is a Rorschach test.
I gotta say that was the weirdest scene in the movie. IIRC they started fighting cause he didn’t want to put the sunglasses on?
The moral story is Unite instead divide
Oh shit I never thought of it like this
I always thought the fight was a metaphor for his friend still clinging to capitalist ideology, and that it took so much work for him to even consider an alternative. IE the work of educating and ridding people of capitalist indoctrination is an extremely difficult task.
Yep unfortunaly the most further people tend to look is their belly
The way I see this fight is that Frank had a false consciousness and was resisting putting on the sunglasses and learning about the truth because of that same false consciousness. John has already put the glasses on and seen the truth, so he’s developed true consciousness and is fighting with everything he’s got to bring Frank over.
So it’s like a communist vs. false conscious working class moment or an “allegory of the cave”-type situation.
