“It seems that a key is to figure out why one person feels threatened when someone else does something.”

Golf, Gender, and the President

“Jodi--

I think you've created a litmus test within a litmus test. The comments show how this hits different chords with different people. Nice job. And it could be worse--it could be xbox. Frankly, I think that both golf and basketball have become cliched. I'm waiting for the president that enjoys kayaking on the Potomac!”

“It seems that a danger of this is when it also influences the legal system--when a judge subjectively decides if a person is "apologetic enough" and it affects sentencing, for example.”

“very good point...maybe we have to distinguish between apologies in the legal realm and apologies when seeking forgivieness...in the former there is a formula that one must say and one's motivation and inner work is not relevant as the law can't get into our hearts while in the latter our inner experience is important if we are going to feel forgiven and make things "right" with the other...of course at this level our own self-judgment is most crucial...we know when we are fooling ourselves or not...even if we are entertainers!”

“Thanks for writing this. I was wrestling with whether to see the film--violence avoidance vs Jewish/Holocaust/Brad Pitt intrigue. It's interesting that this came out right before the Jewish High Holidays, a time when we are likely to wrestle with these forces withing ourselves. It seems that, in addition to the danger of pushing the violence/revenge impulse back inside as opposed to finding a constructive communal outlet, there is also the aspect of turning those very real and complex feelings into cartoon constructions that may or may not represent the turmoil inside. I've read reviews that say the Brad Pitt character is somewhat one-dimensional in this regard, but I think you've intrigued me enough to actually go and see the movie. I wonder how you'd compare the treatment of similar issues in Defiance to Tarentino's film.”
