Odyssey Series: Margaret Mead
Uploaded by docued on Sep 10, 2010
When Margaret Mead died in 1978 she was probably one of American anthropology’s most popular and public figures. This filmed portrait interweaves her personal history and intellectual contributions, based on interviews held shortly before her death, on old family and field photographs, and on conversations with a variety of her friends, family, and former students.
Margaret Mead must have been gazing into a crystal ball, knowing full well that the history of man, like history itself, repeats. With the lazy crazies lining up at OWS events that has the Usurper, has-been celebrities and never-will politicians singing praises for these demented ‘down-trodden’ (as if!) union minions and liberal anarchists, the real American people know the score. OWS and their corrupt leaders can taunt, taint, stage, disparage, defecate, deviate, and deviant in a public spectacle but their temper tantrums only disgust “We The People” If OWS punks really want a job… they can go see Barry, Nancy P and Al G… as OWS punks have all the qualities that they admire.
…but onto something more cerebral as there are more fine quotes from Margaret Mead for all of us who appreciate real thinkers of substance!
