"The essential act of war is destruction, not necessarily of human lives, but of the products of human labour. War is a way of shattering to pieces, or pouring into the stratosphere, or sinking in the depths of the sea, materials which might otherwise be used to make the masses too comfortable, and hence, in the long run, too intelligent."
Remaking that movie would be a great way to wake people up. You sure won't see anyone in Hollywood do it though. If you think about it Avatar speaks volumes but most people probably don't associate it with what the corporations and military actually do in foreign places.
Most people can't stand self-righteous Mary Sue space elves, so the foreign policy aspect of the movie was drowned out by what was basically James Cameron preaching about environmentalism.
There you have it folks. Short and succinct.
Thanks for the reminder.
