Lost Finale Thoughts - Part #1

My Feelings:

Emotionally Satisfied.
Intellectually Screwed.

So yea, kind of mixed

Speaking of unanswered questions, how about some just from the finale?

  1. Where did the sailboat that the MIB was going to escape on come from? Desmond's boat was left at Hydra Island. The Losties swan from the sunken sub, Widmore, Tina Fey, and MIB took canoes. OK, maybe MIB sails the sailboat back with the canoe in tow and then paddles to Othertown.
  2. Why aren't Lapidus, Miles, and Richard concerned with leaving the Island on the right bearing? They have no idea that Desmond has done whatever the fuck Desmond did with the plug to the sacred hot-tub. As far as they know, the rules are the same: you can only leave the Island on one special bearing. And since the Frozen Donkey Wheel has been turned and the Island has moved, I think you assume that the old bearing no longer applies.
  3. Who built the yellow-light pool? At some time in the past the pool didn't exist-how did that work?
  4. My own personal obsessive peev: They didn't need to try to fly a crash-landed airliner out of a hand-built jungle airstrip. THERE'S ANOTHER BOAT: The Trawler .

Greenwald on Erosion of Civil Rights

"It really is the case that every new Terrorist incident reflexively produces a single-minded focus on one question: which rights should we take away now / which new powers should we give the Government? We never reach the point where we decide that we have already retracted enough rights. Further restrictions on rights seems to be the only reaction of which our political and media class is capable in the face of a new attack. The premise seems to be that if we keep limiting rights further and further, we'll eventually reach the magical point of Absolute Safety where there will be no more Terrorism. For so many reasons, that is an obvious myth, one that ensures that we'll reduce rights infinitely and with no discernible benefit. We're not the target of Terrorist attacks because we have too many rights; we're the target because of our own actions, ones that we never reconsider in light of new attacks because we're too busy figuring out which rights to erode next."

New target of rights erosions: U.S. citizens
