    Just a philosophical exercise. Care to play? Then choose your "teams"

    Dramatis Personae

    The Good Guys

    Jesus Christ w/Donald Trump as Jacob McCandles
    Joyce Carol Oates as Martha McCandles
    Parashurama as James McCandles
    Immanuel Kant as Michael McCandles
    Crazy Horse as Sam Sharpnose (w/ Wes Studi as his stuntman)
    Friedrich Nietzsche as Buck Dugan
    Carl Jung as Little Jake
    Cerberus as Dog

    The Bad Guys

    Karl Marx as Richard Boone (and Smaug)
    Young Vladimir Lenin as O'Brian
    GWF Hegel as Pop Dawson
    Old Scratch as Kid Duffy
    Hillary and Bill Clinton (as Rakshasa and Rakshasi) as Breed
    Renee Descartes as John Goodfellow
    Michel Foucault as Trooper
    Ahriman as Will Fain
    Thomas Moore as Billy Devries
    Lord of Mictlan as Walt Devries w/Barack Obama (as the Underworld Lord's Avatar)
    Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez as Karl Marx's Broodmare

    Who wins just before the credits roll? Does the home team save Little Jake once more from the clutches of a supremely well voice acted animated dragon, or will the scales of injustice and mishandled classified information prevail this time around? Comment or come up with your own teams or both.

    I'm missing something; I thought Big Jake was a John Wayne western movie. Was it an allegory based on a religious text of some kind?

    My favorite western of all is My Darling Clementine, the black and white version with Henry Fonda and Victor Mature. It plays like an allegory, but I'm not sure it's a religious one. Maybe the story of David is a long shot possibility. Or more likely I'm just inordinately fond of the Shakespearean actor scene in the saloon.
