----Original Message Follows---- From: "Nathan Newman" <nathan.newman at> But overall, I did think the politics of the film was pretty good, from the multiracialism to the undercurrent of self-satisfied workers-consumers living each day without recognizing their oppression.

What about the part where the small sect of self-ordained revolutionaries justifies the killing of "self-satisfied worker-consumers" in order to save them? Didn't strike me as too democratic.
