Mad As Hell

Howard Beale in the movie "Network," A movie made 30 years ago that perfectly describes the situation today about television, and mainstream media.
Are you “Mad As Hell”?
I don’t have to tell you things are bad everybody knows things are bad, it’s a depression.
Everybody’s out of work or scared of losing their job. The dollar buys a nickels worth, banks are going bust, shopkeepers keep a gun under the counter. Punks are running wild in the street and there is nobody anywhere that seems to know what to do and there is no end to it.
We know the air is unfit to breath and our food unfit to eat. We sit watching out TV’s while some local newscaster tells us that today we had 15 homicides and 63 violent crimes as if that is the way things are supposed to be. We know things are bad, worse than bad, there crazy, it’s like everything everywhere is going crazy so we don’t go out anymore. We sit in the house and slowly the world we are living in is getting smaller. And all we say is “please at least leave us alone in our living rooms, let me have my toaster, my TV and my steal belted radials and I won’t say anything just leave us alone.
Well I’m not going to leave you alone. I want you to get mad! I don’t want you to protest, I don’t want you to ride, I don’t want you to write to your congressmen because I wouldn’t know what to tell you to write. I don’t know what to do about the depression and inflation and the Russians and the crime in the street. All I know is first you have got to get mad. You’ve got to say, “I’m a human being, god damn it! My life has value!
So I want you to get up now. I want all of you to get up out of your chairs I want you to get up right now and go to the window, open it and stick your head out and yell “I’m as mad as hell and I’m not going to take this anymore!”
I want you to get up right now and go to the window, open it and stick your head out and yell “I’m as mad as hell and I’m not going to take this anymore!”
Things have got to change, but first you have to get mad you have got to say “I’m as mad as hell and I’m not going to take this anymore!”
Then we will figure out what to do about the depression and the inflation and the oil crisis. But first you have got to get mad and say “I’m as mad as hell and I’m not going to take this anymore!”
Are You Mad as Hell?
