"The Point!", Harry Nilsson's Animated Album (1971) And Its Implications For American Idiocracy

"I love the uneducated."
Donald Trump

Have you guys seen "The Point!" -- a feature length animation (first screened on network television in 1971) -- based on the eponymous album by Harry Nilsson?!

If not -- or even if you have seen it -- it would be fun to watch when we're together in August.

I saw the debut screening of "Point" (while living with Paul Schulte in Cincinnati) and was blown away by how good it was - the plot, the music, the imagery... the synergy of all three.

It was thoroughly enjoyable and as revolutionary as a message can get - especially for "exceptional" Americans, drunk on solipsistic epistemology, bible-banging, hubristic religion and capitalist evangelicism that preaches the inimitable grandeur of The American Way. 

Deism And Founding Father Links

Ironically, "exceptionalists" spend inordinate amounts of time saying they "want their country back" when they themselves absconded with it in the first place.

Ted Nugent Calls Hillary A "Toxic Cunt" And Obama A "Piece Of Shit" Who Can "Suck My..." 
(During the 2016 presidential campaign, Trump made his last public appearance at a rally joined by "special guest" Ted Nugent. If Hillary or Obama had done the same, American "conservatives" would have called for public gibbeting, their corpses left to rot in cages on Pennsylania Avenue.)

Whether or not these "special people" know it, they are antagonistic to The American Experiment of representative democracy set forth by our fundamentally Deist founders.

"American Theocracy" 
Kevin Phillips

The debate currently constellated in American culture is whether "we the people" want Theocracy/Autocracy, or Self-Rule.

If devious "Christians" acknowledged their passion for the former -- and their contempt for the latter -- we would will finally embark The Real Discussion.

"Conservative" "Christians" - and the secular apes who mimic them - are dyed-in-the-wool theocrats, eager to re-enact Savonarola's horror in 15th century Florence.

Heard this on NPR Science Friday today. 

7% (16.4 million) of adult Americans believe chocolate milk comes from brown cows.
