337. Vice: The Birth of the Darth Vader in US Politics
Discussing the movie ‘Vice’ and the motivations behind Dick Cheney’s drive to become one of the most powerful man in the world and US Politics. Taking it #BackToSelf to see how he may not be as different from any other person in their personal reasons to succeed, he just ‘happened to be’ in the right place, at the right time to do what he did. Taking a step back from judgment and instead seeing where and how we all participated in allowing a person to become the ‘evil’ that they may be now usually associated with – and perhaps looking at our own motivations as well and how that affects others too.
Suggest to watch Errol Morris’ fabulous ‘The Unknown Known’ (2014) Donald Rumsfeld Documentary
Former United States Secretary of Defense, Donald Rumsfeld, discusses his career in Washington D.C. from his days as a congressman in the early 1960s to planning the invasion of Iraq in 2003.
*The movie ‘Vice’ is directed by the same guy that made ‘The Big Short’! (Not the big fish lol)
