Seen any good movies?

We don’t often think of a G-rated animated movie as giving us political direction, but Frank Rich’s column in the N.Y. Times today gives a pretty good idea of how much we could learn by seeing the weekend’s hit Wall-E. After reading and listening to some of the trivial political commentary which is coming think and fast in this election season, perhaps it would be good to turn to contemplating a possible future when the earth would be truly uninhabitable and where citizenship has become a carnival of unlimited shopping with government by a global corporation called Buy N Large. Even though this future is unlikely to come to pass, it contains enough possible truth to make us all think–and perhaps to question our government and ourselves about how we are going to build the future we really want for the generations to come.
