“In a post nuclear era where owning books is a felony and the intellectual community is persecuted, a group of scientists is trying in vain to find a way to save the world. A Professor’s assistant will be called upon to make the most difficult decision of his life.
The story takes place in a world a little different from our own; an alternative reality. In this parallel universe history took a different course.” – by Anonymous
This film will give you the chills. It may be subtitled in English but you feel everything in the voice of the power of the world a young scientist is living in with his wife. His chance for them to escape is to figure out a physics formula. What the result of it’s solution, you can discover from seeing the actions of the citizens of the world in this parallel universe. It is chillingly similar to 1984 and Fahrenheit 471.
Since the choices were not electorally voted on in a manner fitting our Constitution-the election in the USA was wrongly interpreted. Now the world may be facing a fate similar to the one found in Amendment 10/60. A frightening world to look inside – seeing the doom of the fate of free thinkers, intellectuals, readers, artists, poets, scientists. It is where some people would like to see as the direction we find ourselves living in our near future. Not me. I like the freedom to express my thoughts. To write my stories. Telling the truth contained between the lives and loves of the characters. Or in the subtle abstractions contain in the subtleties of my poetry. Expression of ideas is essential for a civilization to function and thrive. Our world is a mess and needs healing and coming together to develop a unified and peaceful union. All of us together aiming for a peaceful resolution and freedom and support for all the world’s citizens.
I am a progressive and want to see the world become a place where everyone is accepted for who they are, not judged for it. Having books to allow our minds to think. I want freedom without violence. It is an unnecessary part of life, violence. But it is in the genes of some part of those born in this world. Why anyone would choose to live out their violent tendencies is beyond my sensibilities. To gain pleasure from causing pain and killing other humans or creatures who want to live. It should be a right to live in peace without the threat of injury or death hiding in plain sight but not seen or expected. Who would expect while out enjoying our friends at a local cafe we would be bombarded with bullets and bombs exploding? No one, but it is happening more frequently. We live our lives trying not to expect the unexpected, otherwise we would all go mad. But the villains are out there in wait & in our government. Never do we expect we will be a target or our friends will be killed by not so friendly fire. We must take out the reasons for such brutality. End the war based on an elusive religious ideology. Does it really exist in reality or does it originate in someone’s nightmare and they are spreading their poison, spilling out into the world through the cyber media, recruiting lost children who seek something to be part of. But why choose violence and slavery to death?
Let us return to this film. Watch it to aid in helping to convince anyone, discipline is not the answer. One will not find freedom in restrictions. Laws too strict are the breeding grows for violence to grow. See history. Look at drug laws and prohibition. Restricting people from having thoughts, whatever they might be, is what causes violence to grow. Disagreement is natural. It is what we do with our differences. We need to listen and hear in order to understand our differences and to accept each individual as a separate entity. Allow them to grow. Help each other to understand we do not have to be enemies. But first we need to stop and think what we say out loud. It means finding an inner sensitivity. We do not need leaders who are filled with bluster who work up the masses into a frenzy and blind them to the sensitivities that everyone deserves respect and acceptance. Difference should be seen as an addition to society not as an invasion of our culture and society. Combining our differences will make us all grow. We don’t want Walls destroying our freedoms and union.
This films shows those with the mob mentality going after the young scientist. They want to stop him from changing the prison, absent of free thought, from which somehow they feel comfortable being part of. Like those who allow places like Nazi Germany to flourish. If you lived in a regime of utter control, a reasonable person would think one would want to see it change.
Watch this film to see what happens to the scientist and his wife. The only two people you will be routing for in “Amendment 10/60.” The ending is very curious. You, the viewer must decide what occurred with the scientist in the laboratory. It is a moment where imagination comes in. Amendment 10/60 is a film all the world needs to see in order to develop insight into what is happening all around us. The danger is spreading and some people are being drawn into the cults of madness, some disguised as pretending to be a leader of the free world. Who do we want to guide us? I surely do not want someone who acts and sounds like a boisterous, outspoken leader of the new Nazi party. Restrictive and totally lacking in understanding or even the ability to get beyond his own mirror image. Not being able to tolerate dissension and especially not being able to deal with criticism or lack of being loved by all the masses. Honesty is not within him to grasp.
Think for yourself, but be sure you are well informed before making a decision to help in changing the whole world away from the destruction the now present person living in the White House is leading us towards and maybe actually stopping him. Hoping Congress will stand for the people & not just to protect their jobs in future elections. But for the right reasons-listening to the voices of the people-the one’s who cast their vote and won with the popular vote. And for the women and men who joined them for the Women’s March on Washington DC and across the States and the World. Let us absorb it all and take a stand. Now it’s time to watch the film. – jk
