Oblivion was a fantastic movie and I have to admit I did not see some of the points you raised. I've pointed out for a long time the way "The Republic" turns into "The Empire" in Star Wars is very close to the path we are taking. Since Star Wars was written so long ago, I don't know if that was the intent, but it sure does seem that way.
Beware the cult of "government"...
