I watched this movie yesterday afternoon on one of the Starz channels. I thought it very well done, and it certainly appeared to be heartbreakingly factual.
Not too long ago I would have watched it and been outraged but unsurprised by the seeming coldness and inhumanity of the perpetrators as they looked into the camera and shamelessly told lie after lie that they simply could not have failed to know would be perceived as lies by any thinking person. I would have been amazed by their hubris and saddened by the sorry state into which our affairs had fallen, that creatures such as these were allowed to create havoc and destruction in one high position and, when caught, given a big bucks bonus and allowed to retire or, worse still, be quietly shuffled off to another high position from which they could continue their criminal activities.
Not too long ago I wouldn't have thought much more about it; how much can you think about the unthinkable?
Today, however, knowing what I know about psychopaths, I have to tell you that watching this bunch of them chilled me to the bone. It's as though what I've absorbed intellectually was transmitted viscerally and transformed into some sort of body-knowledge that these varmints ain't us.
Pogo's famous quote, "We have met the enemy and he is us", should be revised to, "We have met the enemy and he just looks like us...and he'll tear the beating heart out of your chest for a dollar".
I've read many times on this site that "knowledge protects". Thank you all for the protection you provide.
