    The movie is about a person, who used criminal terminology for undesirable societal human behaviour, and he saw his job as needing to be publicly disapproving of the same, and also to penalise the same if need be. Mr. Hoover felt that the science of general public criminology would be an incentive not to be criminal to the same public, if the science was an initiation. It seemed to him, that the economic activity of the individual was what made the same choose what he might not want to. The interest of the movie is, he was as dedicated to the F. B. I., as Oliver and Wilbur Wright were to flight, and Mr. Charles Chaplin was to the motion picture. His was an American pioneering spirit.
    Mr. Hoover was very relevant to the Kennedy era, but it seems that the President Nixon saw him as a person, who might have influenced in the unsuccessful attempt to overthrow Fidel Castro much in the past, and in the foreign affairs of the nation, perhaps in Iran.
    What seems is, that Mr. Hoover was very concerned in the movie, about his personal record, which seems to want to cover up the motives of his operatives, and wanted to make their lives more private and secure, after their tenure at the F. B. I.. Apparently, he sanctioned that the identities of the F. B. I. employees who did arrests and who were involved in shootouts be opaque in identity, if the movie is accurate where I see it.
    It seems, the American people also were pretty reticent, because of his behaviour, to be a vindictive society. Apparently, the F. B. I. today, is not in charge of homeland security. The President Nixon saw that his influence on govt. was overbearing. He was perhaps advising all the Presidential advisors on personal security. It seems, that he didn't fathom, that crime is a motive of disaffection, and he saw crime as needing to have any major ideal as an initiator of that motive.
