A New American Horror Tradition (The Purge)



Once again, the spectacular 4th Of July is upon us. A time for recognizing the freedoms we have and celebrating with family BBQs, fireworks, and street fairs. A wonderful time if you are American.
But I've noticed a grim new American tradition. At least in the movie theaters.
This 4th Of July, like the last, a new Purge movie is being released. "The First Purge." A new franchise that has caught the (fearful) imagination of Americans who see our further separation of the 1% and the 99 and imagine a dystopian America where the rich enjoy protections and the poor are left exposed and with no hope.
This first film will show how it all begins. This should be a treat for all Purge fans. I enjoy the franchise. I personally thought the second film ("Anarchy") is the best of the bunch, but still get excited to go into this strange future.
But after we go into this dark escapism, hopefully we can come out and try to mend this polarization of the nation and look to a more hopeful future. Because this is not a future ANYONE wants.
