Encore of Revival: America, November 6, 2017

Given the new revelations, Kevin Spacey needs to plead guilty, lead the charge against perversion in the entertainment industry, personally apologize to the case of House of Cards, and finish Season 6 without pay in which Underwood “finds Jesus” while Anthony Rapp makes an appearance to say what needs to be said. Anything short of that would squander the duty, the ability, and the obligation that sits on Netflix’s shoulders. If Spacey and the filmmakers don’t use the limelight they are in to make things right, they also will suffer. After all, Netflix is in the business of films from the same “bad crowd”.

Dark reports are flooding America, including reported perversions of Martin Luther King, Jr. Russianewsgategate is in an outright tailspin, shooting itself in the foot with an investigation of a known-to-be fake crime many Democrats even said should not be pursued.

The nation’s president was away this week on a trip to Asia. A pastor was away when his local church in Texas was brutally attacked by a lone shooter. He massacred the congregation unchecked.

It is a season of recompense in America. Things aren’t going to get better for some time. As our idols fail us, we’re all searching our souls and contemplating eternity. Whether we choose redemption or lynching is an across-board choice that affects not only the people we might forgive, but also ourselves.

Encore of Revival: America, October 30, 2017

Many establishments are imploding—Europe, big entertainment, the political establishment. Many people press forward for love, truth, and life without animosity. Old establishments resist and impugn themselves.

Suspected Russian money dubiously making its way to Trump’s campaign advisor, Manafort, neither indites nor acquits Trump or Russian collusion, but suggests that someone was attempting to interfere, both through secret operatives and smear campaigns. Mueller is getting into deeper hot water, now including CNN. Russianewsgategate, continues to expose corruption, but not where originally purported by the “exposers”.

Reconciliation and loyalty are powerful. As of press time, the best bet for Kevin Spacey and Anthony Rapp would be to repair damage and cooperate against the immoral addictions that plagued their industry long before either of them became actors. Neither attacks the other, but they only speak in humility. They have a perfect recipe for lemonade. If NetFlix drops Spacey, their own “house of cards” will fail, just as “acquiesce-management” style backfired on the NFL, Limbaugh’s sponsors’ response over Sandra Fluke, General Motors’ surrender to union demands, politicians’ white flag addition, and others. If Spacey stays on, House of Cards ratings will rise and Hollywood corruption will fall. Anthony Rapp needs a soapbox role in Season 6.
