George Carlin on the American Dream

George Carlin skewers the American Dream.

Marco Arment describes this excerpt as “the most intelligent 3 minutes and 14 seconds of political commentary spoken in a generation” and then says he can’t fight the system - it’s too stressful. 

In the other corner, Johann Hari in the Independent argues that protest works - eventually. The inertia is hard to overcome. The fruitless million person anti-Iraq-invasion marches in Australia killed my protesting spirit. Which is what they want, of course.

Carlin is right: they don’t want people to think. Why think when the NFL/NBA/MLB/NHL keep us so well entertained, and for so many hours. Drink up.
