Ten Days That Shook The World

That’s the name of John Reed’s book about the Russian Revolution of 1917. Warren Beatty’s Reds tells his story. This week the movie was released for the first time ever on DVD in a 25th Anniversary Special Edition. This is one of my all time favorite movies.

In many ways it is more relevant today than it was when released in 1981. Below are two clips that will serve as discussion starters for tonight’s CCC’s ToT at Molly Malones.

We’ll use them to talk about the politics of the Iraq War and morals, government and the “faith-based” posturing that goes with them.

An essay entitled “How Would Jesus Vote in 2006?” and a profile of Sen. Sam Brownback are good reads as the election nears and can also inform our discussion.
