    Sure, from your binary thinking, anyone who isn't conservative like you is a liberal. It's your right to wear blinders through life, I guess.

    People who are neutral or apolitical are as likely to join Truth Social now as Twitter.

    Sure, if you say so. Never found much use for Twitter, and everything I hear about The Orange One's dream machine is not very good. Let's see if Truth Social survives beyond this year.

    Truth Social will not only survive, it will expand. It will be the focal point of creation of an alternate environment on social media. You name the service on line regarding social media one can be canceled from by woke cancel culture, an alternative will be found on the Rumble cloud via Rumble, Truth Social, or stand alone. Streaming, Banking, bill paying, e mail, bit coin, precious metals, you name it.

    Agree 100%

    They're also much less likely to be about the cultural inclinations and beliefs of their wealthy makers. IOW, films about the arts. Or films about 'growing up in a conservative family or town, and breaking free in a big city with other quirky misfits' (a trope so painfully outdated, and so specific to middle class urbanites, that it should be embarrassed). Or films about angry women.

    A worthwhile example of how well a film maker can manifest contradictory positions and write against their own personal beliefs, is something like The Edukators. Written and directed by a raging Lefty, but wherein the 'resistence' (a group of socialist/anarchists) are actually just a bunch of juvenile sh!theads, and the Rich Man they target isn't anywhere near as terrible as Hollywood would have made him. Neither are really better or worse, and respective motives move from one side to the other. It's an interesting case study, with a wonderfully ambiguous ending.

    Best of luck to them but odds are they will be back on the brink of bankruptcy before too long. This is a path many have taken. Cannot think of one that stuck around very long. When you are straight to syndication on the BYU Channel, and all the other religious stations, you really don't have an income stream to sustain you.

    There’s the Daily Wire channel, the new Trump streaming Channel, and Pure Flix. Also home DVD is still an option. Some of it may well make it to local theaters. There are other cable channels that will buy that kind of programming too. Some actual Hollywood studios like Sony now even have their own sections to produce family friendly and religious themed movies. The Gods not Dead 1-4 come to mind among others. There is a hunger for such fare out there despite the overt hostility to it by the secular progressive left.

    Actually they did not. Only #3 which foolishly tried to reach out to secularists did poorly and because it did. The last one about Home Schooling was brilliant. “We the People”

    Well, if you want to keep those kinds of movies around, then buy them up. Looks to me the franchise has gone to the well too many times, but if it floats your boat, enjoy.

    Better gamble than a lottery ticket.

    Hunger and even viewer counts mean very little in the entertainment world. 200K 14 year olds are a more valuable demographic than 2M 60 year olds to most advertisers. Networks go where the ad dollars take them and the same 200K viewers watching the newest version of the non-stop churned out MTV Challenges will be worth more to companies than the 350K pureflix subscribers. Many channels on TV make little to nothing on cable and satellite licensing. They live or die on ad dollars. ESPN and ESPN2 collectively bring in around $8.70 per cable subscriber per month from your cable bill and that drives up the costs and down the money available to other channels. Paramount, MGM, and AMC combined only bring in a little over a buck fifty. Fox News gets paid more money per subscriber than all the Big 4 Networks. The monetization of content is complicated and very often makes little sense.

    So... you're saying instead of 4 million to one, the odds are 3 million to one.

    Good to know.
