In post: Ender's Game

I fear

that this movie will be a recruiting tool for a new generation of drone pilots. The Ender and Shadow books were wonderful, but they were in no way anti-state, nor is Card a libertarian. Battle school was very cool in the books, and if the kids didn't know that they were fighting real battles, it's just sad that they didn't know how "patriotic" they were being, wiping out an alien species. That's not a good message.
