The film contains numerous subtle allusions to the realities of the communist-bloc society, particularly to that of the People's Republic of Poland just before the fall of communism, perhaps in the anticipation of the major events to come; the fall of communism and the rise of political liberty. When Max and Albert escape, they jump through the wall, which then starts to shake (often associated with later Lech Wałęsa's jumping over the wall of the Gdańsk shipyard, and also with the subsequent fall of the Berlin wall). The secret meeting of the Women League apparatchiks and their lies to the women parallels the communist government of Poland. This dimension of the movie appears to typically escape the viewer more removed from the context. Some sections of this kind were left out from the version shown in Polish theaters by the government censors, but many passed through.
The movie can also be viewed as a satire directed at intergender conflict (wrong-headed feminism or wrong-headed masculism), prudery, or totalitarianism.
Here is the amazing summary of it all by Higger:
In general, the peoples of the world will be divided into two main groups: the Israelitic and the non-Israelitic. The former will be righteous; they will live in accordance with the wishes of one universal God, they will be thirsty for knowledge and willing to the point of martyrdom to spread ethical truths to the world.
All the other peoples, on the other hand, will be known for their detestable practices: idolatry and similar acts of wickedness. They will be destroyed and will disappear from earth before the ushering in of the ideal era.
In short, this is effectively discussion of massive extermination of those who stand up to the Jewish Utopia — the New World Order. It continues: All of these unrighteous nations shall be called to judgment before they are punished and doomed. The severe sentence of their doom will be pronounced upon them only after they have been given a fair trial when it will become evident that their existence would hinder the advent of the ideal era.
Thus, at the coming of the Messiah, when all righteous nations will pay homage to the ideal righteous leader and offer gifts to him, the wicked and corrupt nations, by realizing the approach of their doom, will bring similar presents to the Messiah.
Their gifts and pretended acknowledgment of the new era will be bluntly rejected, for the really wicked nations, like the really wicked individuals must disappear from the earth before an ideal human society of righteous nations can be established.
And when one considers the fact that the Jewish concept of the Messiah is often reckoned to be that the Jewish people themselves are 'The Messiah,' what Higger has described takes on even more consequence."

This is part 6 of a reading of Will Durant's "The Story of Philosophy - The Lives and Opinions of the Greater Philosophers". I'll try and upload one a day until it is done. This book is public domain in the States, and can be found at:
I was inspired by another philosopher on bitchute who uploads readings of various philosophical works (including part of this one).

Manfred Kleine Hartlage. "In der islamkritischen und allgemein der rechtsoppositionellen Szene tummeln sich bekanntlich ziemlich viele Ex-Linke, wie ich selbst einer bin, und die aufgrund ähnlicher Erkenntnisprozesse die Seiten gewechselt haben. Ich halte es für wahrscheinlich, dass wir nur die Vorhut sind: Im linken Fußvolk dürfte es buchstäblich Millionen von Absprungkandidaten geben, die sich, wenn auch nur zögernd, der Erkenntnis öffnen, dass die Anwendung linker Ideologie auf die reale Welt zu einer Serie von Katastrophen führen muss. In meiner Rede werde ich meinen eigenen Weg nachvollziehbar machen. Ich werde zeigen, warum die Ergebnisse linker Politik stets und zwangsläufig das Gegenteil von dem sein müssen, was angeblich angestrebt wird, und ihre Anhänger zwingt, zu einem System totalitärer Gedankenkontrolle und letztlich zur Gewalt Zuflucht zu nehmen. Ich werde zeigen, dass die Linke Lüge ihre Wurzeln in der Struktur linker Ideologie hat und daher von Linken, sofern die das auch bleiben, gar nicht vermieden werden kann. Ich werde die Hohlheit und Verlogenheit ihres moralischen wie intellektuellen Anspruchs bloßlegen." Deutscher Ton.
