Do Business and Politics Mix?

 

As soon as Harold Leeson, the CEO of Natural Foods, pulled into the parking lot of his company’s headquarters, his phone rang. It was Kenneth King, one of his board members. Harold braced himself before answering.

“This is a total mess,” Ken said immediately.

“I know,” Harold replied, exhaustion creeping into his voice. “But our publicity team is telling me it’s going to calm down soon — people will forget about it.”

“Which people? The media? Your employees? Our customers? Because a lot of people are upset with us right now. And personally, I think they have a right to be.”

The trouble had started several weeks earlier, when the Star Tribune ran a story about the donation that Natural Foods, a midsize chain of organic grocery stores based in Minneapolis, had made to a super PAC called Minnesota Business First. The company Volvo XC60 Personal Lease had chosen

‘The Society’ on Netflix: Reviews, plot, characters, filming locations

When Christopher Keyser, creator of “Party of Five,” took the stage at the Mass Media Expo in November 2018, he was pretty tight-lipped about his new Netflix show, which was filmed in close to a dozen towns in Massachusetts last year, other than to call it a modern-day “Lord of the Flies.”

That show, titled “The Society,” follows a group of teens who suddenly find their wealthy Connecticut town completely devoid of adults. The youngsters must suddenly fend for themselves in a suburban survival of the fittest.

With all 10 episodes of season one debuting on Netflix Friday (the same day that Burlington native Amy Poehler’s directorial debut “Wine Country” hits the streaming site), much has been revealed about Keyser’s show, though plenty of mystery still remains.

What’s “The Society” about?

Without spoiling too much, here’s a breakdown of the show’s early plot: Students of fictional Connecticut suburb West Ham

Euphemisms as Political Manipulation | Wesley J. Smith

Americans have lost the art of honest debate. Perhaps better stated, we have thrown it away. Advocates on all sides of political and cultural spectrums cynically manipulate public opinion through focus group“tested obfuscating words and phrases rather than persuade through candid and accurate descriptions of advocacy agendas.

Wesley J. Smith I have grappled with this tactic for over twenty years as an activist against the legalization of assisted suicide and euthanasia. When I first engaged the issue in 1993, the Hemlock Society was the nation’s foremost organization advocating legalized physician-assisted suicide. Talk about candor in advocacy”hemlock was the poison swallowed by Socrates to carry out his death sentence, and the slogan of the organization was “good life, good death.” No confusion or pretense about the agenda there.

But look what happened. The Hemlock Society eventually merged with one of its own offshoots, Compassion in Dying, to form Compassion and Choices. Talk about euphemistic

An American Body Politic – Image Journal

In recent months several of us have quipped that the drama surrounding the Trump campaign and presidency would make for a great plotline on the FX drama, The Americans. A show about Russian spies living in D.C. during the Cold War easily brings to mind our present-day episode of America-Russia relations.

If you watched the most recent season, you might have found your imagination wandering from the fictional Jennings family to America’s stranger-than-fiction reality. You might have had odd thoughts, like: I wonder if that’s really Rob Goldstone’s hair? And then: Tabloid journalist? Or Russian spy completing the Hail Mary of espionage assignments?

Who can know anymore?

Joe Weisberg says his show is less about international relations and more about a marriage. I suspect this is only partly true. Watching Season 5, I realized that The Americans intimates something fundamental to national identities through its particular marital scope: Crucial
