For Democracy, Any Man Would Give His Only Begotten Son

This video inspired me to seek out the movie Johnny Got His Gun. I did, and still do, think it's an excellent movie.

I never "got" the anti-war message, maybe because when I first saw the movie, I was fairly apolitical. Or maybe I just lack nuance, not to mention layers.

It was the concept of being in that situation which captivated me. Unable to see, hear, speak, or move, yet being totally aware of what's going on around you.

At any rate, I really just decided to post this because we have incurable insomniacs around here that need some high-quality entertainment.
