Being Alone, Ass, and Family: Trevor Moore
Remember. Kevin McCallister could have
phoned the police at any time. He was a child
who had accidentally been left alone. One call
and he would have been safe. But it was
never about safety. He was hunting those
men. He wanted them to die. It was fun for
him. He enjoyed it.

Like, I know he is only eight.
But the movie makes a big deal of saying he an incredibly smart eight year old. MENSA- levels of IQ. Some of those traps were ingenious.
One 911 phone call saying ‘Help me.’ All it would have taken for this whole mess to get sorted.
The police come in, take good care of Kevin till the family arrives. Arrest Harry and Marv.
But, no. Kevin chose the dark path of cruel sadism.
Kevin was a Sith
How can anyone both see the Home Alone series, and think gun control will reduce violence?
Let me just come back in defense of Kevin. If Kevin was so smart, he must have known that calling the police would cause his family to get in trouble for leaving him alone at the house. Given Kevin’s other actions in the movie, such as pretending that he was shopping for his mom who was in the car, it seems pretty evident that he took pains to keep adults, even responsible ones, from knowing that he was alone in the house. This shows a distrust of the establishment, and it’s possible that Kevin was even aware (as I was at the age of 8) of the general concept of a CPS investigation. By refusing to call the police, Kevin was acting selflessly to keep his family from being split further. Thanks for coming to my Ted Talk.
A couple of bandits come to rob some poor eight-year-old’s home and you call him a sadist for taking direct action. If some mofos came and invaded the safety of MY domicile you bet your sweet ass I’d concoct the most brutal means of retaliation imaginable to ensure those bastards never set foot in another home ever again.
Broke: Kevin was a sadist
Woke: Kevin didn’t trust the establishment and didn’t want CPS to investigate his parents
Bespoke: Kevin had a God given right to defend his property
