#065: Dystopian Fantasy

Not sure whether it’s funny or sad that millions of Americans will watch dystopian action movies like The Hunger Games and root for characters standing up against oppressive, tyrannical government regimes, only to then go home, watch the news, and root for an oppressive, tyrannical government regime to brutalize and stamp out protesters who are standing up against said oppressive, tyrannical government regime.

Actually, it’s not funny. It’s sad. So very, very sad. Only in America can people help movies like The Hunger Games break the box office while voting for either Trump or Clinton to take control of the Oval Office. Americans are stupid enough to fall for that level of double think!
