Quelle surprise! It’s a Hollywood production, after all.
... Avatar is also a distinctly political work of art, with a strong anti-American and anti-Western message. It can be read on several levels – a critique of the Iraq War, an assault on the US-led War on Terror, a slick morality tale about the ‘evils’ of Western imperialism, a futuristic take on the conquest of America and the treatment of native Americans – the list goes on.
... director James Cameron has made it abundantly clear that the film is linked to both the war in Iraq and the War on Terror. In an interview with The Times he declared:
"We went down a path that cost several hundreds of thousands of Iraqi lives. I don’t think the American people even know why it was done. So it’s all about opening your eyes."
"We know what it feels like to launch the missiles. We don’t know what it feels like for them to land on our home soil, not in America. I think there’s a moral responsibility to understand that."
Incredible - an industry that thrives on capitalism, wouldn’t exist without it, constantly spewing anti-American, anti-capitalist propaganda.
But with a promoter of left-wing propaganda in the White House (see Obama-NEA scandal), it can only get worse.
Time to resurrect Joe McCarthy.
