In a free land there is no such thing as sedition.
But if you can provoke some better listening that would be a goal for a show like this. To look at someone in an extreme situation, and talk about it, and through that recognize something you can translate to your normal life.
Will you be more likely to listen to others after you watch The Handmaid’s Tale?
Well, it is to early to tell but I know that I am going read the book again and will be activating a Hulu account soon.
In the meantime, listen when others are talking!
Here are a few related links that I have run across recently:
- Margaret Atwood, The Prophet of Dystopia
- Hulu’s ‘The Handmaid’s Tale’: Enraging, riveting and scarily relevant
- Reading The Handmaid’s Tale in the Year of Trump
- Rereading The Handmaid’s Tale, One Month Into the Trump Era via Digby
- The Handmaid’s Tale by Slate
There are plenty more if you want to take a deeper dive via your search engine of choice.
It was not my originally intent that this site be all Friday Ark and related postings all the time and I am very disappointed in myself for so completely wandering away from A gathering of thoughts on life, politics, economics, culture and…
In fact, there was no thought of the Friday Ark back in December 2002 when Modulator went live with, well as embarrassing as it was, a test post.
Do not get me wrong. I love the Friday Ark and all the friends and boarders that have sailed with us over the years. The experience has been wonderful.
There is a bunch more after the break.
TL;DR: Friday Ark history, things have changed, we had fun, thanks, maybe a return to the beginning…
This is a test. Please ignore.
We post links to sites that have Friday (plus or minus a few days) photos of their chosen animals (photoshops at our discretion and humans only in supporting roles). Watch the Exception category for rocks, beer, coffee cups, and….?
You can board the Friday Ark by leaving a comment, a trackback or emailing fridayark AT themodulator.org.
Please visit all the boarders, Link to the Ark and check back for updates through Sunday afternoon!
