Good and Evil, Part One
This will be a two-post series on Good and Evil, starting today with how Hollywood sees the issue.
In their private and political lives, Hollywood sees only one evil in the world, George Bush and the Republicans. Castro is fine. Chavez is peachy. Putin is tootin. Only the evil George Bush and his dark army of Republicans should be scourged from the earth.
We need to be “nice” to terrorists, so we don’t anger them. We must open a “dialogue” with Kim Jung Il, so he doesn’t blow us up with nukes. We ought to have left the “nasty” Saddam Hussein in power; after all, he was just mass murdering his people, and who cares about them?
Do we need to be “nice” to George Bush? Must we open a “dialogue” with him? No, heavens no. Demonize him. Belittle him. Stop him from speaking. Impeach him. Make movies about his assassination. Compare him to a chimpanzee. After all, he is the truly evil one. We should be polite to the terrorists and Kim Jung Il because they, after all, underneath, are human like us. But George W. Bush is a monster.
