Ethan Hawke Dreams of Being an Eco-Terrorist

purge_ver2_xlg__spanVia Earth First! Newswire:

In a recent interview about his role in the new sci-fi horror film The Purge, in which violent crime is decriminalized for 12 hours every year by the U.S. government in order to release social tensions, actor Ethan Hawke discussed what crimes he secretly fantasizes about, free of legal repercussions.

Ethan Hawke dreams of being an eco-terrorist.

“If I was in a situation where I could get away with anything terrible that I wanted to get away with? Well, I have a secret fantasy of being an environmental terrorist — like when I see these oil spills and all these dead fish and the chopping down of forests, I’d love to slip just a little dynamite in somewhere. That would be where my inner demon lurks.”

    That’s not a demon, Ethan.

    They stole the premise of this movie from a Peruvian flick called Madeinusa (?)

      That’s what Hollywood does best.

        it was about a small indigenous community who had a strange scyncretic catholic holiday. it was celebrated the days after good Friday, which represented the period when jesus was in hell, after his death, before his resurrection. during these days there was no sin. so the mayor had sex w/ his daughters. one of them wins a pageant as the best looking Virgin Mary. This daughter befriends an outsider from lima who is jailed for the holiday. good movie. im sure hollow wood’s version sucked.

    This plot line is so middle class! Yeck! The rich and the poor already live outside the law but in differing levels of comfort and violence (both committed [by proxy for the former] and incurred).

    But then there is also the enforcer class who dwell within the middle class. They are the most paradoxical of human beings–they uphold the law against other people while simultaneously subverting it. They usually begin their careers with the ideal of protecting the public, but slowly drift off that path and begin to hurt the public (domestically and internationally). They are outwardly tough and strong–each one an icon of the rugged Rambo individual, but inwardly soft and weak–needing to belong to a gang to keep protected from the public wrath they build up in the course of their roles. A mixed up, troubled lot–they are the ones that most deserve our sympathy, but must be watched continuously lest they throw tantrums when things don’t go the way they want them to.

    But I digress…..sheesh…. bring on the hate from the pig lovers!

      Pig lovers… On disinfo?

      • Rhoid Rager

        There’s all sorts on here.

        • Anarchy Pony

          True enough, but pig lovers are in short supply, and the regulars would make quick work of them. If there’s one thing that generally unites the disinfonauts it’s anti-authoritarianism.

          • Rhoid Rager

            I’ve found that the anti-authoritarianism is selective around here. Just my impression, though. I haven’t taken a poll or anything. But I bet you’d be hard-pressed to actually find people on here that would be willing to say: fuck all law, or fuck all government, or even fuck all police all the time. Consistency is hard to come by in thought process, because we’ve been raised in a consistently inconsistent, hypocritical culture. ‘There’s always exceptions for infringing on so-and-so’s rights, given the right conditions’. Then again, maybe I’m too extreme. It’s all good until it happens to you, I s’pose.

    if you understand that all Hollywood movies are terrorist acts
    he’s already realized his dream

      It reminds me of Lars von Trier’s Cannes interview about Melancholia where he was fielded a question about his German background….he waxed and waned, and then eventually said he ‘understands Hitler….and that he [von Trier] is a Nazi.’ Made me laugh.

      • BuzzCoastin

        all publicity is good publicity
        a basic precept of marketing

        BTW: nice PrepH avatar
        reminds me of that S. Park Toilet Security Agency clip
        “I juz needs to look insides yer asshole.”

        • Rhoid Rager

          Yeah, he seems like a fucking clever man; he must understand that well.

          btw, is there anything you’re not cynical about….I’m oh so curious to know.

          • BuzzCoastin

            it’s funny to me that I get tagged cynical
            when all I’m doing is saying
            rather loudly & factually:
            “THE EMPEROR HAS NO FUCKING CLOTHS ON!!!!”

          • Rhoid Rager

            Christ, man, you don’t need no facks for that statement!
            But i guess the emperor is everywhere nowadaze, so cynicism is the new bell bottoms.

            took me a whole 3 min to find this avatar on google images. lol

          • BuzzCoastin

            to me
            the unvarnished truth is not cynical
            aMerkins tend to be overly Polyannaish about things
            & I’m all for positive thinking
            butt
            not at the expense of leaving facts out of the equation

    Except they wouldn’t decriminalize violent crimes against the corporate state. Only little guy vs. little guy would be allowed
