A Whittle Bit of Commentary with Chad Whittle
Below is a rush transcript (may contain errors):
If you’re hearing this, then it means you didn’t look at the eclipse yesterday and burned your retina and went blind because you were able to download this podcast. Ok, now that we got that out of the way, I wanna discuss a great movie I watched this weekend.
If you haven’t watched The Founder you should check it out. It stars Michael Keaton as Ray Kroc, a milkshake machine salesman from Illinois that meets the McDonald’s brothers that owns a hamburger restaurant in California. And yes, it is THE McDonald’s, the ones that have over a billion served. The odds are there is probably a McDonald’s near you right now as you are listening.
What I love about this movie is that it tells the story of an American businessman that is chasing the American Dream and the movie is positive about it. It doesn’t have any negative anti-American, anti-Capitalism messages in it. This movie shows the old America. How America used to be back when pursuing the American Dream and success wasn’t viewed as a negative or somehow robbing from others, and capitalism was praised, not condemned. Men like Ray Kroc built America and we need more movies that tells their stories and offers others inspiration that they too can become a success in America and fulfill their dreams with hard work and the American work ethic.
I will admit Kroc sorta did the McDonald’s brothers wrong in the end, but that’s how business is. It’s a ruthless game, he wasn’t a perfect man, but overall this movie serves as an example of the pro-American, pro-family movies that Hollywood should be making as opposed to the unpatriotic negative movies that comes out of that place. It’s so ironic. Hollywood produces movies trashing America, trashing capitalism, and every single one of the people making these movies are stupid rich because of the American Capitalistic system.
