SHOOTING THOSE WHO DISAGREE ON CLIMATE CHANGE: Ed Driscoll: Terry Gilliam’s Eliminationist Rhetoric. With lefties, however funny they might seem, things always seem to turn to the gulag eventually.

Plus: “Gilliam’s dystopian 1985 film Brazil ends with Jonathan Pryce’s protagonist being brutally tortured by Michael Palin’s Speer or Eichmann-esque coolly technocratic statist character. Presumably, Pryce’s character dies at the end of the film or shortly afterwards. Who knew until now Gilliam meant it to be a happy ending and the whole film a how-to guide for big government?”
