I guess the Twilight Zone show got me thinking. I started to re-read (probably the 100th time) a book that serves as a guide to TZ. Some of those shows really relate to our current times. I also started thinking about the movies and thought about Invasion Of The Body Snatchers (1956). This was the original - starring Kevin McCarthy. This is viewed as a look at paranoia, spread of Communism, dehumanization, etc.
Get this from your library and watch it. When you watch it think about today's world - how W and the media try to transform us from caring world citizens into group-think beings ruled by fear and revenge. We'll see on Tuesday how many U.S. citizens have been overtaken by the seed pods, walk zombie-like into the voting booth, and without emotion pull the lever for another 4 years of W.
