article imageGere assails 'big lies' of Bush administration

By RobotGod     Sep 24, 2007 in Entertainment
Actor Richard Gere launched a broadside at the Bush administration when he picked up a lifetime achievement award during the San Sebastian International Film Festival on Sunday.
Yahoo reports that while discussing his film "The Hoax," about a fabricated autobiography of Howard Hughes, Gere linked the small lies "that people don't take responsibility for" to the "big lies" that lead to history-altering moments, like the decision to invade Iraq.
At a news conference, he took the opportunity to appeal to Chinese authorities to rise to the occasion of next year's Olympics by becoming an open society.
"Boycott is not the answer. Isolation is not the answer. This is China's moment for radical change. You don't achieve greatness through human rights abuses. You achieve it through openness," said the actor, who often has backed the cause of Tibet.
At every opportunity, Gere strives to make the world a better place. It is a trait to be admired. He is using his super-star power for good. I give him an A+ for that.
