    I dont se how playing in to the interest of corporations is ever going to do anything meaningfull to change tehy way in wich they operate. No. We have to pressure the state to control or outright ban corporations that are not doing what we need them to do.

    And how do your avarage person could bother the right people, when "the people" are corporations?. And if you bother them to much you risk your life (that is true of some goverments to). So your avarage people doesnt have to many choices. Civil desobidience being one of them. and you know, this is life or death to many of us, climate activist are being murdered and we dont see things changing but getting worse. So youll have to forgive me for doing everything i can think of, to make "them" do something. Even if that is just disrupting every day life.

    Maybe the time for protesting without bothering anyone has come to an end. Maybe they see that nobody is taking this seriously enough. And protesting on fridays just doesnt cut it. Some of us are fucking desperate

    You dont see what all the fuss is about?. Maybe you have a severe lack of empathy, and understanding of the what are the problems we face and what are the possible solutions. We have bearing in the outcome, cuz we are the cause, and we have the means to be the solution. Are you american, or european by any chance.

    DCEU: Killer Clowns from Gotham City

    This. What is the problem with some honest criticism of a an artistic creation. An extremely popular one at that. We can argue the merits of the critiques, but it sounds like some people just dont think it warrants any kind of criticism beyond the superficial. And, like, why?

    Umm sure i can give you examples, though i thought it was a common thing to crtique art on a variety of issues and from very different frames. For example, under a femminist point of view you could criticize the usea of death women to motivate male protagonists on a search for emotional growth or his path to revenge, etc. Or, more to the point, the need to make, yet again, the story of how society fuck ooo so very much with white straight men. And if the movie is trying to, maybe, critique that, then in turn you can critique how did they did that, and why is it necessary for another movie about this to be made. Specially when its a PoV that has been approched soo many times by the same type of people.

    And how many of them read, or watched tv, or listen to that "deeevil" music. I dont belive there is a direct cause between art and violence, but i do think we can question and critique the need for certain points of view, and if they are valid and so on.

    Anime

    I didn't find a manga thread so, im gonna try my luck. I want to read Akira, but i learned that there are like 3 version, and i've read that the Dark Horse one might be the best one, with the best english translation.

    I dont think you understand the critique being made. Real life violence is not necessary to critique this and other movies like it.

    DCEU: Killer Clowns from Gotham City

    Why is it such a problem to be critical of a film, or art in generaƱ for that matter. Like why is it sooo controversial to say that incels might identify with protagonist of joker or taxi driver. Im nont calling for the removal of this movie from all movie theaters, just pointing out that there are a loooot of movies depicting white men being fucked by society and there rightous anger. And this is another movie that depicts that. Why Cant i say that i find that problematic?. Why is that so triggering?.

    Maybe, you know, express criticism of certain aspects of these movies?, maybe do a bit of critical thinking?

    Maybe they identify with yet another white man being "let down" by society and becoming violent as a result. I mean its not that difficult to see why young white cis men, like this kinds of movies. And you have the directors comments about "cancel culture", etc. And of course there is also the trope that mental illness makes you violent (if you are white). This is appart from the incel shit. Just wanted to point it out.
