Ridiculous
23 March 2021 | by dsutton-06361See all my reviews

Watching this you would think there was only one violent psychopath in the history of piracy, everybody else was an egalitarian, slave-liberating, libertarian hero of democratic ideals. That pirates were thieves, murderers, rapists and terrorists can be safely ignored.

Pirates weren't heroes, they were violent, self-interested highwaymen, and while there is some underlying truth that was told by this documentary in how they ordered their society it was out of practical necessity, not because they were woke superheroes.

The portrayal of the British effort to combat piracy primarily as a way of protecting the slave trade, as though there wasn't any other legitimate trade happening as well, is similarly disingenuous.

And in the case of Anne Bonny, we get a libertine narrative where she casts off the bonds of patriarchal oppression, a dangerous free woman let loose on the fringes of society, and whom no man can control.

It's all too much, and everybody involved ought to be embarrassed.
