The usual self-serving, socialist bullshit
7 October 2016 | by jgcorreaSee all my reviews

it is still early to properly review this soap-opera, but for the record it is worth to mention that 'The Law of Love' started with its protagonist fully itemizing a prevalent message, namely that: "In the Law of Love, if you are not a socialist, it is because you have no heart at all." Such politically-correct thesis is absolute, self-deceptive foolishness itself in its bottom line. Screenwriters risk becoming foolish or even 'useful idiots' by embarking on such kind of social engineering. Lenin and Stalin used the term "polyezniy idiot," or "useful idiot" to describe sympathizers in the West who blindly supported leftism. A phrase like 'useful idiots' can thus refer to anyone who, without much understanding about love or laws, decrees that socialism not only dictates the laws of love as the former also detains an absolute moral control about the latter. Having thus spoken, Zarathustra will now follow the novelão which represents at least a relief as compared to the previous novelão, "Old Chico", which 'excelled' in its unbearable visuals based on CGI, Photoshop, sepia-turned-in high-definition images.
