Full Metal Jacket - shooting script versus film

The point of Crowley's "Do What Thou Wilt Shall Be The Whole Of The Law" is to breakdown barriers of normal behaviour, morality and ethics. Once you've parked your moral compass anything at all is possible. It's opening the door and consciously ushering the shadow in to play. Once done you're trapped.
And some one usually has it all on video too.

Yes.

This is also about Power.

How a person achieves Power.

The intoxication of the exercise of Power.

The sense of invulnerability of Power.

The Hypocrisy and Moral Bankruptcy of Power.

Joker, the Marine grunt, is trying to deal with, to balance and navigate, the Duality of Man - the "Jungian thing".

The Powerful have already made their choice.
"It means this War was never political at all, the politics was all theatre, all just to keep the people distracted...."
"Proverbs for Paranoids 4: You hide, They seek."
"They are in Love. Fuck the War."
