The surrealist movie Viva la Muerte, an evocation of Spain anno 1936sqq. Many of our “love & lighties” could not stomach the depicted violence. It took Spain 50 years to recover from the fascist take-over of a democratically elected government by Franco. Without the open participation of Nazi Germany, fascist Italy & an over-zealous Vatican this bloodshed could never have happened. History should be our mentor in these strangely disconnected times where eugenics & fake science & populist propaganda seen to rule the media world.
