My different take on Frank Capra's masterpiece 'It's a wonderful life'

Post by Ivanhoe on Fri Dec 23, 2011 11:53 am

Potter is Margaret Thatcher, is Ronald Reagen, is George Bush Jnr.

Both the UK and the USA are Pottersvill's.

Right wing Republicanism, and British right wing Tory's are both hard nosed, profit entrenched political systems.

In It's a wonderful life, George Baily's father runs a lone company, not for profit, but to help people.

George Baily's father is a Socialist, in America, a Social Democrat.

Due to decades of Republicaism in the States, millions are homeless and unemployed long term. This is Pottersville.

Due to the same system in the UK since the 80's, thousands maybe millions are equally homeless, are equally long term unemployed.

It's a wonderful life reveals what can be achieved by one person in a position to help people in his community.

And It's a wonderful life proves the other side of the coin when attitudes change at grass roots level, when the people in charge have hard hearts, just like Potter.

After George Bailey meets Clarence the Angel, and Clarence the Angel gives George Bailey his wish that he wished that he had never been born,
everything changes and George Bailey's community become's Pottersville, hard harsh people, trust all gone, love all gone, the soul all gone.

Everything that happens to George Bailey in Pottersville, is a direct result of not only George Bailey never being born, but also of ruthless Capitalism taking root because everybody is looking after themselves, and not caring about other people.

If this had taken place in Harry Pottersville, people could just conjure up their food and homes with magic. That is, until the right-wing Christians ban it.
