The collapsing US military & economic empire is making Washington & NATO even more dangerous. US could not beat the Taliban but thinks it can take on China-Russia-Iran...a sign of psychopathology for sure. We must all do more to help stop this western corporate arrogance that puts the future generations lives in despair. @BruceKGagnon

Sunday Bonus film & songs: Malvina Reynolds

Love It Like a Fool is a 1977 American documentary film about the then 76 year old American folk songwriter musician Malvina Reynolds, directed by Susan Wengraf, featuring fellow folksinger Pete Seeger.

Malvina reportedly loved the way she looked in this final film appearance.

Best known for her songs, "Little Boxes," "Turn Around," "What Have They Done to the Rain" and "Morningtown Ride," Malvina successfully united her talents, insight and humanism into song.

We get to see and hear Malvina's attitudes towards aging and dying, her thoughts about romance, her ideas about social change. She was a woman rich with integrity, determination, courage and love.

Through the film, with some camera work by Les Blank, viewers can follow Malvina as she composes, records an album, performs in concert, rehearses with young musicians and manages her record and publishing companies.
