Reblogged futurescope:The Future Is Ours
Filmmaker Michael Marantz has just released The Future is Ours, a rousing two-minute tribute to the people and companies pushing humanity forward. Full screen, HD, headphones if you’ve got ‘em. Fair warning: this will, at a minimum, give you chills — but don’t be surprised if you feel your eyes start to well up.
Appropriate portmanteau: ‘Chort’ (Chilling + Short)
The future is ours Chilling? No. Just conﬁrmation that others and I are on the right path.
A friend who was a waiter told me that his customers simply treated everyone nicely in the wake of the disaster. A tragedy of this scale meant a coffee that took an extra minute to arrive was not the end of the world …
Yet the aftermath was not always pleasant … It took only two weeks for my waiter friend to encounter the same old rudeness. His customers went back to self-importance, forgetting that we were in this game of life together. Never mind that people were hurting, or that Mayor Giuliani was attending funeral FDNY services with empty cofﬁns in the very same city: where is my goddamn coffee?

All we say to America is, ‘Be true to what you said on paper.’ If I lived in China or even Russia, or any totalitarian country, maybe I could understand the denial of certain basic First Amendment privileges, because they hadn’t committed themselves to that over there. But somewhere I read of the freedom of assembly. Somewhere I read of the freedom of speech. Somewhere I read of the freedom of [the] press. Somewhere I read that the greatness of America is the right to protest for right.
