William Ellery Channing

Netanyahu is pressured easily, gets into a panic, and loses his senses... to run a country like Israel a leader needs to have reason and judgment and nerves of steel, two traits he does not have.
The ballplayer who loses his head, who can't keep his cool, is worse than no ballplayer at all.
With the CGI, suddenly there's a thousand enemies instead of six - the army goes off into the horizon. You don't need that. The audience loses its relationship with the threat on the screen. That's something that's consistently happening and it makes these movies like video games and that's a soulless enterprise. It's all kinetics without emotion.

But nothing is better than the market, where the customer and the business deal directly with each other, because if you rip people off, word gets out.
