At JPGB, reflections on the outstanding film Darkest Hour:
Words cannot produce the needed force by themselves, because the needed force is moral, and it transcends mere words. That is the abracadabra fallacy. But words rightly used are needed to transform moral truth into moral action.
I also reflect on history, which comes to us through kings and books, as the bridge that connects words to moral truth.
Don’t forget Mary and the Witch’s Flower – both are worth seeing on the big screen!
