We seem to have struck a chord with "It's a Wonderful Life." Our recent messages have generated a great response from team members who also see the parallels between George Bailey and Grassfire. While those similarities might be a bit of a stretch, we love the classic film and what it stands for: faith, family and community. Those are three things evil Mr. Potter either couldn't have or didn't want.
Across the board, big social-media websites pretty much reject faith and the traditional family. Their idea of "community" is vastly different than what most of us grew up with. Honestly, think about the cesspools of negativity, vitriol and hate that Twitter and Facebook can be. Who would want to be part of a real-life community like that?
+ + Mr. Potter Knew What He Did To George Bailey And Didn't Care!
Getting back to "It's a Wonderful Life," the trouble started for George (Jimmy Stewart) after his Uncle Billy (Thomas Mitchell) "lost" an $8,000 bank deposit. Without thinking, he wrapped the cash in a newspaper and he gave it to Mr. Potter (Lionel Barrymore). Watch it here.
If you remember the scene, when the evil miser realized what happened, he had his henchman wheel him back to the door to watch Uncle Billy search frantically for the lost money. Potter said and did NOTHING!
Soon, George's life began to spin out of control. Potter let it happen and watched with glee -- even though he could have stopped it instantly. The "warped, frustrated old man," as George once called him, should have given back what rightly belonged to the Bailey Building & Loan. But Potter's hatred of George and what he stood for was far bigger than his sense of decency and fair play.
If you don't see yet how the lessons of this 1946 Christmas classic are applicable to today, please keep reading. We'll make it crystal clear.
As we stated previously, today's social-media giants often play the role of Mr. Potter. They want to control information in an attempt to control the people who need and use it. Take last week's "unprecedented speech blackout" by Twitter, as The Wall Street Journal called it, and Facebook's "far-beyond-normal content moderation."
The New York Post published and tried to share a bombshell article on social media that was sure to negatively impact the presidential campaign of Big Tech's preferred candidate, Joe Biden. The story has been authenticated and refuted as "Russian disinformation" by U.S. intelligence, but America's fourth-largest newspaper is STILL locked out of Twitter -- SIX DAYS LATER -- for refusing to remove their tweet.
It's as if, like Potter, Silicon Valley "elite" don't care about the truth or the impact that withholding information will have. But unlike in "It's a Wonderful Life," the real-life stakes are about much more than one man and his family.
Of course, like George Bailey, Donald Trump has much to lose due to Big Tech's possible election interference. But if Twitter and Facebook are allowed to continue censoring content they disagree with or simply don't like, that could have a huge impact on the future of the United States.
If Joe Biden and Kamala Harris get elected because of social-media shenanigans, their Marxist, open-borders, anti-police, anti-gun and anti-faith policies could turn the "American Dream" into a "Socialist Nightmare."
