"Anti-Semitism is no longer a problem. It's raised, but it's raised because privileged people want to make sure they have total control, not just 98% control...[Jews are]...the most privileged and influential part of the population.

I s'pose it's an unfair comparison but no work of his has ever had the impact for me that his " Civil War" series did... I've watched that repeatedly. You may remember this letter being read during it...

Nope, is that a PBS show? I haven't heard of it.

Yep, that was the most moving piece of the film, IMO. It stopped me in my tracks and I watched the rest of the series religiously. Thanks for the reminder.
