I used to get airmailed copies of The Guardian, a Marxist publication not to be confused with the UK liberal paper. I saved a page from a 1976 copy. I loved reading the movie reviews by Irwin Sylber. Of course every movie was contaminated by capitalist ideology. He was spot on. I still think so.
I kept a review of One Flew Over the Cuckoos Nest (which I loved despite of its capitalist propaganda, Kesey is still some sort of counterculture hero.)
The review ended like so many on a note that emphasised the glorification of individual heroics:
McMurphys solo flightover the cuckoos nest is always doomed to fail– however much it may momentarily illuminate the world.
There they have a full page of the Guardian.I can see why I needed this mailed to me – how could you get news like this in New Zealand at that time? (though why anyone would want to save the constitution is beyond me.)
Just for posterity I’ve taken a few more snaps of the Cuckoo article.
