Matt Damon 2016年6月のMIT卒業式でのスピーチ

Matt Damonのように好き勝手、本当のことを言える俳優は、ちょっと政治的なことを口走っただけで、仕事を干される日本のタレントと何が違うのだろう?

突然言い出すのでなく、ずっと鋭く言い続けてきたから。
ではないだろうか?

いよいよ危なくなったら発言するのでは全然ダメだろう。

その都度、いつもストレートに言い続けなければ。

(御用じゃない)政治的な発言込みで仕事が来るようになれれば、理想だよね。

みんながやれば、日本のメディアも世の中の風潮も変わるはずだ。有名でなくても。

いやそれは逆で、有名になってからでは遅すぎる。

その意味でも、制服向上委員会ガンバレ。

それから、Matt Damon のスピーチ、ぜひフルに最後まで聞いてくださいね。MITの学生じゃなくても、きっと元気がでます。

抜粋:

"... Add to that an American political system that’s failing... we’ve got congressmen on a two-year election cycle who are only incentivized to think short term, and simply do not engage with long-term problems.

Add to that a media that thrives on scandal and people with their pants down ... Anything to get you to tune in so they can hawk you products that you don’t need.

And add to that a banking system that steals people’s money.
Like I said, I’m never running for office!

But while I’m on this, let me say this to the bankers who brought you the biggest heist in history: It was theft and you knew it. It was fraud and you knew it.

And you know what else? We know that you knew it.

And yeah, OK, you sort of got away with it. You got that house in the Hamptons that other people paid for ... as their own mortgages went underwater.

Well, you might have their money, but you don’t have our respect.
Just so you know, when we pass you on the street and look you in the eye ... that’s what we’re thinking.

I don’t know if justice is coming for you in this life or the next. But if justice does come for you in this life ... her name is Elizabeth Warren.

OK, so before my banking digression, I rattled off a bunch of big problems.

And a natural response is to tune out, turn away.

But before you step out into our big, troubled world, I want to pass along a piece of advice that Bill Clinton offered me a little over a decade ago. Well, actually, when he said it, it felt less like advice and more like a direct order.

What he said was “turn toward the problems you see.”

It seemed kind of simple at the time, but the older I get, the more wisdom I see in this.

And that’s what I want to urge you to do today: turn toward the problems you see.

And don’t just turn toward them. Engage with them. Walk right up to them, look them in the eye ... then look yourself in the eye and decide what you’re going to do about them.
