    Girls on the RoadA touching and well paced peice of classic propaganda. At 60 odd minutes there is little lag in the story line. Addressing homeless females or "HOBO Girls". I think it is a good movie for young people to see, and there are more things for older people to take away from this. In a few events the main charachter "Kay" addresses law enforcement as a sovereign human. In one case during a questioning by an officer she responds "...(I'm) a Free Born American..." then she walks away from the officer, unaccousted. If you do not know what a sovereign human is, your not one and you'd better find out what one is stat.Respect for the law (human law, common law ... God's law) respect for other people and respect for common institutions are shown repeatedly in the film. The beleif Kay has in humans as naturaly good is moving. The subtle undertones of ethics of the time are represented. Like the presence of the church in association with helping in social problems. Of course since it's authorized propaganda there is the prescence of the state, in being asked to resolve and help with these problems. The hesitance on part of the govenor is telling. We could have long discussions on many of the subtle elements of this film, but Ive only got 700 charachters left to write this.I hope you watch this film. I hope you have much discussion about our current modern life in comparison to this film. I hope you realize what the reality of the modern state is in comparison to the promises of the 'New Deal' seague to the 'New World Order'. I hope you realize that promises made by the state are hollow and lead to new promises that cost more and more in taxes, promises made by your God are fulfilled and lead to inalienable rights and a constitution, the tax...mere faith.I hope you watch the movie, yet keeping in mind that the state can never solve a problem.
