Liberty at the Movies: Guardians of the Galxaxy Vol. 2

Liberty at the Movies: Guardians of the Galxaxy Vol. 2

By ns_admin
Making a sequel to a movie loved for its uniqueness must be both the easiest and toughest job in Hollywood. On the one hand, you have a roster of beloved characters and situations , on the other had, an audience that embraced the first move because of its originally may not settle for something that just retreads ground plowed by the first one. Guardians of the Galaxy vol 2, the sequel to 2013 blockbuster succeeds in building on the first film’s legacy in a way that makes what is now familiar seem fresh, including the film’s use of classic (and not so classic) hits from the seventies and eighties. After this film, you will newer hear Brandi or Mr. Blue Sky the same way. The film picks up three mounts after the first one, with the Guardians– Star-Lord, the earth-born leader of uncertain parentage, Zemora– the “daughter” of mega bad guy Thanos, Drax the Destroyer, the muscle of the group whose wife and daughter where killed by Thanos, Rocket the genetically engendered foul-mouth raccoon, and baby Groot, the living tree. Adult Groot “died” in the first movie, but is regrowing and is this in baby form. baby Groot provides some of the film’s funnest moments. In fact, every time baby Groot utters the only words he is capable of saying “I am Groot” you can’t help but giggle. The film begins with the Guardians protecting the power source of the Sovereign: a society where everyone is genetically-engineered so they consider themselves to be perfect. The Guardians run afoul of the Sovereigns when Rocket steals some of their special batteries–yes the film begins with a dispute over special batteries. Watching the rag-taged Guardians outfight and outsmart the so-called perfectly-engineered Sovereigns is something every libertarian will enjoy. Guardians do have help escaping the sovereign–in the form of Ergo, a living planet who turns out to be Peter’s father. Ergo has been searching the galaxy for Peter, and takes Peter, Gomara, and Drax to his home planet, which is an extension of himself.


Ergo’s motivation is because he needs Peter’s help to fulfill his plan to remake the entire universe in his own image. Peter is thus forced to chose between his biological family (Ergo) and his real family the Guardians. Peter is also forced to choose between Eros offer of absolute power and immortality and his friends, family, and his morals. Family is a theme through the move–form he relations between Peter and Ergo, the relationship between Gamora and her sister Nebula, the relationship between Rocket and well everyone else, and Peter’s relationship with Yondu, the “reaver” who kidnapped him as a child but deiced to keep him from Ergo because he was feared Ego will kill him the way Ego killed his other children when he they proved useless to Ego. The relationship between Gamora and Nebula also illiterates the evil committed by power-made authoritarians. Gmaora and Nevbula are not biological sisters, instead they where both raised by Thanos, who took them after killing their families. Thanos forced the two to engage in combat, and the loser had part of their body removed and replaced by a metallic part in order to make them stronger. Gamora always won the fights, leaving Nebula half-machine half-human and full of anger toward her “sister” and her “father.” Nebula and Gamroa reconcile when Gamora says she was scared and all she forced on was survival. Nebula’s last scene in the movie sees her going off to find and kill Thanos, who is the big bad into the forthcoming Infinity Wars. Of course, being a Marcel move there is a Stan Lee cameo–one that winks at a popular fan theory that Lee is playing the same character in every movie: a watcher, one of the ancient race whose job is to watch and record every event. There are also mid-and-end credit scenes (five int total) that hint at future plot lines and characters in forthcoming coming Guardians movies. To some up Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is q worthy successor to the first film that shows Marvel is solving its “villain problem””hat have plagued some previous Marvel films. It also explores the meaning of family and how the pursuit of power can corrupt family relationships– a theme that libertarians and traditional conservatives should find appealing. All that and Howard the Duck what’s not to love.

Support #altnews & keep Dark Politricks alive

Remember I told you over 5 years ago that they would be trying to shut down sites and YouTube channels that are not promoting the "Official" view. Well it's happening big time. Peoples Channels get no money from YouTube any more and Google is being fishy with their AdSense giving money for some clicks but not others. The time is here, it's not "Obama's Internet Cut Off Switch" it's "Trumps Sell Everyones Internet Dirty Laundry Garage Sale".

It's not just Google/YouTube defunding altenative chanels (mine was shut), but Facebook is also removing content, shutting pages, profiles and groups and removing funds from #altnews that way as well. I was recently kicked off FB and had a page "unpublished" with no reason given. If you don't know already all Facebooks Private Messages and Secret Groups are still analysed and checked for words related to drugs, sex, war etc against their own TOS. Personally IU know there are undercover Irish police moving from group to group cloning peoples accounts and getting people booted. Worse than that I know people in court at the moment for the content they had on their secret private group. Use Telegrams secret chat mode to chat on, or if you prefer if you need to or buy a dumb phone with nothing for the NSA to hack into if you are that paranoid.

So if your not supporting this site already which brings you news from the Left to the Right (really the same war mongering bollox) then I could do with some. Even if it's just £5 or tick the monthly subscription box it will be much appreciated. Read on to find out why/


Any support to keep this site would be appreciated. You could set up a monthly subscription for £2 like some people do or you could pay a one off donation as a gift.
I am not asking you to pay me for other people's articles, this is a clearing house as well as place to put my own views out into the world. I am asking for help to write more articles like my recent
false flag gas attack to get WWIII started in Syria, and Trump away from Putin. Hopefully a few missiles won't mean a WikiLeaks release of that infamous video Trump apparently made in a Russian bedroom with Prostitutes. Also please note that this article was written just an hour after the papers came out, and I always come back and update them.

If you want to read JUST my own articles then use the top menu I have written hundreds of articles for this site and I host numerous amounts of material that has seen me the victim of hacks, DOS plus I have been kicked off multiple hosting companies, free blogging sites, and I have even had threats to cease and desist from the US armed forces. Therefore I have to pay for my own server which is NOT cheap. The more people who read these article on this site the more it costs me so some support would be much appreciated.

I have backups of removed reports shown, then taken down after pressure, that show collusion between nations and the media. I have the full redacted 28/29 pages from the 9.11 commission on the site which seems to have been forgotten about as we help Saudi Arabia bomb Yemeni kids hiding in the rubble with white phosphorus, an illegal weaapon. One that the Israeli's even used when they bombed the UN compound in Gaza during Operation Cast Lead. We complain about Syrian troops (US Controlled ISIS) using chemical weapons to kill "beautiful babies". I suppose all those babies we kill in Iraq, Yemen, Somalia and Syria are just not beautiful enough for Trumps beautiful baby ratio. Plus we kill about 100 times as many as ISIS or the Syrian army have managed by a factor of about 1000 to 1.

I also have a backup of the FOX News series that looked into Israeli connections to 9.11. Obviously FOX removed that as soon as AIPAC, ADL and the rest of the Hasbra brigade protested.

I also have a copy of the the original Liberal Democrats Freedom Bill which was quickly and quietly removed from their site once they enacted and replaced with some watered down rubbish instead once they got into power. No change to police tactics, protesting or our unfair extradition treaty with the USA but we did get a stop to being clamped on private land instead of the mny great ideas in the original.

So ANY support to keep this site running would be much appreciated! I don't have much money after leaving my job and it is a choice between shutting the server or selling the domain or paying a lot of money just so I can show this material. Material like the FSB Bombings that put Putin in power or the Google no 1 spot when you search for protecting yourself from UK Police with "how to give a no comment interview". If you see any adverts that interest you then please visit them as it helps me without you even needing to give me any money. A few clicks per visit is all it takes to help keep the servers running and #altnews alive!

However if you don't want to use the very obvious and cost free ways (to you) to help the site and keep me writing for it then please consider making a small donation. Especially if you have a few quid sitting in your PayPal account doing nothing useful. Why not do a monthly subscription for less money instead. Will you really notice £5 a month?
