One more post-
Ironically, in retrospect I feel like Moore might have been guilty of one of the media 'sins': pumping people with fear by not giving them all the available info. Haveing said that, I am moved by the majority of the film, and would recommend it to anyone. The part I found most important/familiar was the highlightng of media-led pumping people with fear and distrust of neighbor. This makes people depressed and live on a hair-trigger. This reminded me of the WTS life. Was the WTS born from such a climate of mass fear-mongering? It certainly survives on it now. I remember being delighted at the worst headlines on the news, because I knew I could spring it on people Saturday mornings.
