*a note on Scar from Lion King…
Speaking of Scar, I actually liked him a lot as a kid. I secretly rooted for him. But the other side of me, in order to conform to society’s standard of morality, rooted for Moufasa and Simba. I was torn between the two sides for a long time, the inner turmoil drove me nuts and I almost had a psychological breakdown at one point. I felt guilty for this, and I never told anyone this…until now.
comment : I dont think its any generations right too “claim” a fucking childrens movie.
reply: The collective consciousness of a generation can give rise and somehow contribute to the production of art/film/politics of that generation. There’s a reason why people in today’s generation listen to rap and hip pop, and why people hundreds of years ago listened to Mozart. The production company gives the audience what it wants, and what it wants depend largely on the trend/hobbies/thought process/economic and political standpoint/worldview of a given generation, which is the result of individual consciousness that give rise to the collective whole…But keep in mind that it’s not a one-way thing. The individual feeds on the collective, just as the collective feeds on the individual. The movie industry makes movies in accordance with what we want, and what we want also depends on what kind of things they give us to chew on…So it’s a 2 way, inter-dependent street that operates in a loop, with the parts giving rise to the other in a dynamic feedback loop
