Flavorwire returns with the third installment of their “Famous Faces in their Film Debuts” series, which shows us today’s best-known stars in their (extremely awkward) early roles. (Previouslypreviously.)

In retrospect, we probably should have seen today’s crazy Tom Cruise coming.

People are taking the piss out of you everyday. They butt into your life, take a cheap shot at you and then disappear. They leer at you from tall buildings and make you feel small. They make flippant comments from buses that imply you’re not sexy enough and that all the fun is happening somewhere else. They are on TV making your girlfriend feel inadequate.
They have access to the most sophisticated technology the world has ever seen and they bully you with it. They are ‘The Advertisers’ and they are laughing at you.

America: Love it or Leave it!

Okay mudsuckers …If you don’t like the fact that I’m a loudmouth, liberal, lesbian, that questions the establishment, that questions authority, that questions religion, that believes in science, that overcomes social & personal persecution, that remains fierce & passionate in my fight for the arts, for freethinkers, for the working class, for the 99%, for artists & writers & performers, that believes in the Constitution, that believes in freedom, then kindly abandon my beloved America. 

My nation gives me the right to speak, to think, to act, to fight for liberty & justice for ALL.

If you don’t like it, flee. Nations that silence freethinking, that silence criticism, that oppress the people with tyranny, nationalism, or religion have always been & always will be the enemy of people like me.

So you Plutocrats, Oligarchs, Theocrats, et al, etc …..take a big whiff of freedom and read these words aloud: AMERICA: LOVE IT OR LEAVE IT.
