Television is not the truth. Television is a god-damned amusement park. Television is a circus, a carnival, a travelling troupe of acrobats, storytellers dancers, singers, jugglers, sideshow freaks, lion tamers and football players. We're in the boredom-killing business. - Paddy Chayefsky

This speech is so terrifying--and mesmerizing at the same time. It's prescient. It was a marker of fear when I first heard it as a teenager, and then, some revenant, gloaming through the Reagan years, and unfolding with a smile through the nineties. It weaved itself into the culture so naturally that you almost didn't notice. And then after the crash, too late to change. To suffer, in even greater fear.

"I would like to say... personal opinion of course... that I'm sick and tired of people exploiting the occasion of Academy Awards for the propagation of their own political propaganda. I would like to suggest to Ms. Redgrave that her winning an Academy Award is not a pivotal moment in history. It does not require a proclamation and a simple 'Thank you' would have sufficed." - Paddy Chayefsky, at the '77 Academy Awards to present a screenplay award #AWARDCEREMONYPOLITICS
