Nostalgia Theater: Superman's Sage Speech

Obviously with this past week's election results, a lot of our conception of people's basic decency kind of took a beating. And while I've taken a "Let's get to work" approach to the bad news that's already come (and is sure to continue in the near-term), it definitely stings when I stop and think about it, and realize how much progress we still have to make, and how tenuous the progress we have made actually is. But as always, the struggle continues, and whenever I feel worn down by it all, I think of this speech by Christopher Reeve at the tail-end of 1987's Superman IV: The Quest for Peace. Now, the movie itself is garbage, but this stirring moment from my definitive screen Superman is enought to make you feel like you can fly:
