And the key word in Jiminy Cricket’s famous piece of advice, is ‘always’. Unlike Steven Spielberg, whose conscience, it would seem, is allowed to guide him at fairly random intervals.
For those who haven’t heard yet, Spielberg has resigned from his job as artistic adviser for the Beijing Olympics, on the grounds that China is not doing enough to prevent human rights atrocities in Sudan, of whom China is an “ally” (which means they buy lots of oil off them).
Spielberg’s astonishing declaration included the following:
“I find that my conscience will not allow me to continue business as usual
“At this point, my time and energy must be spent not on Olympic ceremonies, but on doing all I can to help bring an end to the unspeakable crimes against humanity that continue to be committed in Darfur”
So, Spielberg has resigned on an issue of human rights, that much is abundantly clear. I am surely not the only one then, who is at this moment rather curious about the answer to the following question:
WHAT THE HELL WERE YOU DOING TAKING MONEY FROM THE CHINESE IN THE FIRST PLACE YOU SELF-RIGHTEOUS PILLOCK?
Care to clear that one up for us Stevie boy?
