Darkest Hour Britain’s darkest hour, Churchill’s shining moment in life

Any great statesman should be, first and foremost, if not a great man of letters, then a great user of language, not to mention Winston Churchill, who won the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1953 and was perhaps the most skilled politician in the recent century of Western political history.And in 1953, 13 years after the crucial moment of the Dunkirk retreat, 13 long years for Churchill’s old age and a drop in the ocean for British postwar history, Churchill left British politics and returned to his isolated self. Churchill’s later years were plagued by depression. The English proverb ‘Churchill’s blackdog’ refers to the mental illness that has haunted many a brilliant genius, and even though insomnia, smoking, alcoholism and irritability were Churchill’s constant friends, he lived to the age of ninety, saw the Cold War world was formed and saw Britain surrender its world dominance to others. He should have kept his mouth full of curses, his mind flashing a thousand words against the Americans and the Russians, and his hatred of the mediocrities in the House of Commons and the House of Commons for wasting their time. His ironic speeches in his later years were more direct, perhaps because he had already known long ago that he was powerless to turn back, even if he was treated as a war monger, so he had to cause even microwave ripples with his sharp-edged rhetoric.

But the film is not about the statesman’s bitter old age, but the best less than a month of his life. Churchill, familiar with biography and well versed in English history, if he were to write his own life, might open with the moment in this film, for it is the pinnacle of his lifelong political career, the darkest moment of his life, though the darkest moment of Britain and of Europe.

In addition to the British people, the members of Parliament in the story, the most important thing about Churchill’s such a strong wartime policy was the support he received from the King. Although they both brought great unhappiness to each other throughout history, the most valuable thing was that they were never misled by the “chicken soup” of peace, as Khalifa says in the film. Having seen his brother abandon his country in wartime, George VI understood that he could not go to Canada under any circumstances, and although he stuttered a bit, he was a very brave monarch. The French had jokingly said that surrender was to protect the ancient buildings of Paris and the artwork of the Louvre, which was the biggest line of chicken soup of World War II, from the country that was said to be the best at revolutionizing its own life.

Churchill knew that surrender was not able to preserve the ‘Piccadily’, only hold to the last street of resistance, the so-called ‘on the protracted war’ hahahaha, the world’s great politicians are not necessarily so calculated, but are so called. After all, the King of England has not been stupid enough to that the British Museum as a shield. Historically, George was also plagued by great mental illness because of his weekly lunches with Churchill in World War II, and died in 1952 shortly after the war ended, the year before Churchill won the Nobel Prize for Literature. If he was still alive, I wonder if he would have been happy or sad to think of all the pressure Churchill once brought to bear on him with his words.

The famous chicken soup of the peace era is called ‘be the best you can be’, tea ceremony flower ceremony literature beautiful, in fact, but three minutes a day to take a selfie all done, but to the war years, all meaningless. The opposite of sanity is not irrational, but indulgent. In the perfect and deficient in the choice, seemingly undoubtedly, is really difficult, because in fact there is no perfect option, never just in the different deficiencies in the choice of solutions, the goal is the primary, and whether the courage to assume the responsibility of whether the benefits can ultimately outweigh the disadvantages, the world is not what the best self, only the darkest moments still persist in the determination. The darkest moment, to see clearly
