I’m currently watching the six hour Pride and Prejudice miniseries with my wife.
After all these years, she finally convinced me to take the plunge into the world of Jane Austen. I’ve been going on for over a month now in our home about the Romantic-to-Modernist cultural transition and how 19th century liberals had a different sensibility than 20th century liberals. She thought this was an excellent opportunity to rewatch Pride and Prejudice because it is free of Modernism.
It is weird watching it in the context of America’s “reckoning on race”. It was announced last night that Hollywood movies like this which fail to meet the new woke inclusion standards won’t be nominated in the future for Oscars. I haven’t seen seen any BIPOC people. I haven’t seen anyone who is LGBTQ. I haven’t seen anyone with blue or purple hair, piercings or who is fat and covered in tattoos. “Racism” and “sexism” hasn’t been mentioned once. The patriarchy is still intact. In the Pride and Prejudice miniseries, young people are at balls courting each other. They aren’t singles at bars with jazz or some other type of loud noise playing in the background smoking cigarettes, drinking and hooking up.
I suppose there are worse things than watching Pride and Prejudice. Imagine having a woke girlfriend and having to watch the garbage that Hollywood is going to be churning out in the future.
