The Tyranny Of Cool

Over at TCS Daily, Douglas Kern explores the cartoon banality of the fascism of V For Vendetta. “It’s darkly gorgeous, it’s effortlessly slick, and at all times, it’s three beers away from comedy gold”.

Meanwhile, David Cohen of The Brothers Judd spots George Lucas decrying how influential his peers are. As Cohen writes:

We shouldn’t show the world’s have-nots what we have, because they might want it and “destabilize” their own kleptocracies. An argument only a billionaire can love. This is a nice demonstration of how the Democrats have become, simultaneously, the party of the wealthy and the reactionary party.

We’ve noticed that as well.
