Fear is the ultimate tool of this government

It all began when…

"America's war grew worse and worse, when unfamiliar words like 'collateral' and 'rendition' became frightening.... The truth is, there is something terribly wrong with this country.... Fear became the ultimate tool of this government."
Is this fiction, or reality?

Is it, as one movie reviewer put it, "a vile, pro-terrorist piece of neo-Marxist, left-wing propaganda" or is it an inevitable reaction to Neocon world domination?

As Anthony Kaufman wrote:
"In perhaps the most glaring and controversial example of Hollywood's refusal to toe the Bush party line, 'Vendetta's' hero is a terrorist -- a violent rebel on a mission to destroy his corrupt government in a blaze of explosives. Is this irresponsible? Does it glamorize terrorism? Perhaps. But for many progressives, whose anti-war protests have fallen on deaf ears and whose activism has been squashed by the powers-that-be, 'V for Vendetta' should feel almost cathartic.
Cathartic indeed.
"People should not be afraid of their governments, governments should be afraid of their people."
Check out this Bush flavored trailer and then go get your revolution on - DVD just came out this month.
