Civil Rights I portray as a double edge sword. While Civil Rights had major triumphs I'm convinced that it's great promise still appears unrealized. In the film Civil Rights unfolds into a codified politics of correctness instead reality. Too simplistic but I think it's an issue that is still divisive and counterproductive today.
Finally ending with the corporate mentality of progress where corporations are seen as the parents of society providing comfort, direction, but ultimately empty meaning to a population desperate for some sort of meaning. Later generations who may dream of hope are easily pushed away by the powerful machinations of a force that can not be confronted easily by individuals. That's what we got. Individuals content with their video games and snack foods who may not believe in a world outside that bubble, or may not be able to confront those truths. Meanwhile corporate power assumes it's mantle in the power structure only tightening it's grip on the reins of power without shouldering the same amount of moral responsibility that the rest of humanity must face.
