"Fiat money is backed by men with guns; Bitcoin is not. So why should this thing have any value?"--Uber statist economist Paul Krugman.
off topic - to the Moore Haters (I haven't seen it yet myself)"The film’s trailer has misled many people into assuming that they are just going to be seeing Moore doing another series of his patented grandstanding pranks. Although you do see him running around Wall Street armed with a megaphone, yellow crime scene tape and a rented Loomis truck, demanding a refund from bailed out financial institutions on behalf of the American taxpayers and generally being a pain-in-the-ass to hapless security guards, these types of shenanigans really only take up a relative fraction of screen time. Those moments of shtick aside, I think that the film represents the most cohesive and mature filmmaking Moore has done to date. Interestingly, from a purely polemical standpoint, it is also one of his least partisan, which I’m sure is going to make some of his usual knee-jerk critics develop a little twitch. Not that it really matters; his haters will continue to despise him no matter what kind of film he makes, and likely condemn it as anti-American, unpatriotic and full of lies (without bothering to actually see it, of course)."http://digbysblog.blogspot.com/2009/10/saturday-night-at-movies-let-fiefdom.html
"The film’s trailer has misled many people into assuming that they are just going to be seeing Moore doing another series of his patented grandstanding pranks."Interesting. So Moore's own trailer (before we even see the film) is misleading.Surely Moore would only mislead in the trailer, no?Seems like the manipulative deceptions of a capitalist pig trying to sell movie tickets, comrade!
...but the reality is that Moore is a hypocrite. No need for hate on Moore, just exposing him for what he is : a socialism-for-thee-but-not-for-me millionaire.If he really believed in the socialism he avows he would release the movie far and wide FOR FREE...but oh, wait, it's only "FREE" when it's other people's money.Give him his due as a clever and enterprising filmmaker , but not a damn thing more.
