I want you to get mad!….


I was writing an article this morning that reminded me one of the best movie speeches of all time. It’s Howard Beale in “Network” from 1976.

The awesome timelessness and its ability to just somehow fit the situation regardless of what that situation actually is…personal, political, social…always amazes me.

Pure genius.

All I know is that first, you’ve got to get mad.

You’ve gotta say, “I’m a human being, goddammit! My life has value!”

So, I want you to get up now. I want all of you to get up out of your chairs. I want you to get up right now and go to the window, open it, and stick your head out and yell, “I’m as mad as hell and I’m just not going to take this anymore!”
