The Affluent Society by John Kenneth Galbraith, River of Dark Dreams: Slavery and Empire in the Cotton Kingdom by Walter Johnson, The Name of the Rose by Umberto Eco
Last movie I saw:
I went into Snowpiercer knowing nothing about it and was pleasantly surprised. It’s in the dystopian sci-fi genre: an ice age caused by a failed geoengineering attempt has reduced life on the planet to the inhabitants of the Snowpiercer, a self-supporting train left to circle the globe endlessly. Chris Evans is the leader of the rear car where people are kept in rags, fed gelatinous protein bars of questionable origins, and have their children seized by the train’s security forces. They launch an uprising against the wealthy forward cars in a bid to fight through to the engine and take control of the train.
The main themes of the movie are about class warfare, the limits of revolutionary tactics, and whether existing social structures can be repurposed for better ends. At one point, Evans’ character tells his second-in-command that revolutions fail “if they don’t seize the engine.” The movie takes the stance that replacing elites without changing the social structures that create and sustain them doesn’t work; seizing the engine is pointless if operating it requires the same abuses that provoked a revolution. Meaningful change can only come about by rejecting the current system and striking out into the unknown. Although this isn’t a lighthearted movie, I thought that the ending leaves room for the hope that people can move beyond self-perpetuating cycles of cruelty.
