Les Miz comes to North Carolina. In more ways than one.
The movie opened here over Christmas and is truly well done. But in North Carolina today, the truly miserable are North Carolina’s Democrats and liberals; miserable in concern over what the now Republican government of our state is going to do to the ones we love; education through public schools and universities, mental health care, environment protections, clean air standards, and the list goes on.
Watching the movie, whose sets depict a landscape totally devoid of any ‘safety net’ for the poor, one cannot help but see the future as envisioned by the starker conservative theories on governing. A future without unemployment benefits, medicare, social security or mental health services.
