First Man

Looks like a great movie, https://www.rollingstone.com/movies/movie-reviews/first-man-movie-review-734973/

I usually don’t have the time to see movies at theatres (mainly catch them on airplanes), but this one might be worth the time (indica or sativa?).

About the flag CONtraversy, I suggest watching The Man in the High Castle on Prime to see fascism in action.

1. You obviously don't know what fascism is

It is a totalitarian dictatorship that allows private property as long as it serves the State's interests. Means of production is private, although strictly regulated to serve the State's interest. It is actually an offshoot of socialism.
One could argue that China is really more fascist than socialist these days.

3. Fascists use violence like ANTIFA, and disregard

Due Process like the Senate democrats.

4. I've seen...

The Man in the High Castle and read the Phillip K. Dick novel in High School. What's your point?

6. Pretty good at depicting a society falling under fascism.

Did you catch season 3 yet?

7. I agree....

...for dystopian fiction written in 1962 that has zero correlation to anything happening today. No, just finished Jack Ryan and Bosch, but I'll get to it.

Get through the first few episodes, the last couple are great.
