Speed the film - the similitude

I thought an action movie for adrenalin junkies. 10 years later, I have to recognice that this film is a similitude of our society.

  Speed - the story

In a bus is a bomb. The bomb becomes ready to explode as soon as the bus drives the first time more than 50 mph. The bomb will explode as soon as the bus drives less than 50 mph. The action of the film is the mad drive of the bus, always faster than 50 mph, to avoid the explosion of the bomb

Sonds like the constructed story to create an actrion thriller for adrenalin junkies. inconsiderate fast driving to avoid the explosion of the bomb.

  Speed - the similitude

At this, the chapter "Speed" whould be finished. A film to avoid. But there are threatening parallels to our society.

  Understand politicians

How can be speech and actions of politicians be so different? Simple explained by the similitude ''Speed'' in what dilemma are current politicians.

Economic growth
How can be the fight for economic growth at all costs be explained? Have we lived so much worse before, do we live now su much better?

Oil stock and the exit from oil
Why not a much faster exit from fossil energy? Why such lame measures at an gigantic burning economic problem?

Stable economic system
We need a robust economy and tax system even stable at $150 oil price and -10 percent economic growth.
