Philanthropists today want input into how their monies are being deployed. The big question is, can governments use this insight to sell the rich the idea of paying more tax rather than spend more on charitable giving?
When I go to movies and I love the movie, it's because it feels like it articulated something about how we're living now, and also gives me some insight into my own life. I feel actually altered after having seen it.

It's harder to take politics seriously, to understand the issues, than it is to drown it all in a sea of scorn.

Of speaking truth unto power.

Primates will continue to play social games without the least insight into what is killing them.
