Title says it all, recommend movies here. The more recent the better especially the ones currently on the theaters because no one wants to spend money on crappy movies especially theater money.
For starters, I really recommend 'Beauty and the Beast 3D' even when you have watched it on DVD/Blu-Ray etc. It's just that amazing!
@TalTal19 When you finish it, you're gonna love Ingsoc! No, seriously...
@kosukechan I want that Jacket! Do you know where I can buy one?
@VivoDePyre Not today at least. I'm mostly in for decentralization than complete eradication for the current society.
@lolikitsune Yeah, he might sound like he's condemning everything at first but he's actually condemning parts of it.
But he did raise a point. Why is it wrong to kill, steal, rape, etc? Why shouldn't it be 'wrong to cause someone's death, loss of material possessions, loss of dignity, etc'?
It's only a rephrase but it already covers even more stuff than 'to' can cover. Suppose you stab a guy, the guy dies, that's causing someone's death and 'a kill'. Now, what if you take food from the poor, that's causing someone's death but not 'a kill' and might not even be 'a steal' in some cases?
I know some laws are written so that people are punished if they cause something (like causing loss of life for example) but some aren't (steal, and rape is still phrased like an action). What if we rephrase the laws regarding 'steal' and 'rape'?
@Noodle No, that's just a marketing strategy
Try Nietzsche's book. Here's a passage from wikipedia
In the "pre-moral period of mankind", actions were judged by their consequences. Over the past 10,000 years, however, a morality has developed where actions are judged by their origins (their motivations) not their consequences. This morality of intentions is, according to Nietzsche, a "prejudice" and "something provisional [...] that must be overcome" (§32).
P.S. : Holy hell! I just wrote what he wrote before reading what he wrote!
@AkihaVermillion 7, 8, 10? What the hell happened? Especially if you're cheerful and talkative!
@Fieyr Well, the reason why the people seems ignorant to the issues is because the government aren't transparent enough for the people to make the right decisions. Just look at the media not talking or breaking down SOPA/PIPA. How could people make the right decision then?
Humans weren't good or evil at first. They were just like animals, neutral. Then they became pragmatic. Over time, pragmaticism became good and evil as we know it now. Which goes to say, what's beyond good and evil?
