Good Night Moon Is Out Of Copyright On 1 Jan

Anyone think that a spoof of it – scandalously foul mouthed perhaps – might be a good idea?

OK, any illustrators think so?

  1. Does it need to be out of copyright for spoofing? I think there’s a satire exception in US law. (the wiki indicates it has previously been spoofed)

    Do you already have a theme in mind or are you casting for ideas? There used to be jokes about the “Goodnight JohnBoy” end scenes on The Waltons.

    You could do Goodnight Mon, taking the piss out of Scottish trans policies.

  2. Is it me or did you miss arguably the greatest plan yet seen to get us out of the mess we’re in?

    First, stop interest rate rises. They are the easiest and quickest route to calamity, so they must be stopped. Yes, we will be out of step with all but Japan by doing this, but someone has to say recession is no way out of this crisis: it will only make it worse.

    Second, do QE now to cover the cost of the energy crisis. This crisis is as serious as Covid: QE has to be used. That will take the immediate pressure off interest rates.

    Third, accept inflation. And allow inflationary pay rises. They’re not great. They are much better than millions out of work.

    Fourth, reform energy policy.

    Fifth, there must be tax increases to balance QE. These must come from the wealthiest alone. I have explained such a programme many times before.

    Sixth, consider price controls. We already have them on energy and in some regulated sectors. They now need to be used to squeeze price of essentials. At present they tend to be heavily inflationary. That needs to be reversed.

    Seventh, reconsider Bank of England independence. It makes no sense when the result is their current plan to crash the economy.

    Eighth, seek international support for low-interest rates. They are essential. They will also save most developing countries from crisis. They can’t afford their debts now.

    Ninth, increase energy cooperation, worldwide. Sustainability will require it anyway.

    Tenth, pray. In this situation we might all need to do so.
