    I forgot, in some people's universe, the wealthy are the true victims of society, because every once in a while someone makes a movie that doesn't portray them as our generous benefactors.
    Well, innocent victims are a common plot trick, so let's not ignore the obvious.

    As to the universe and this movie, you've nailed the objective. The wealthy are evil and have the ability to create laws that allow them to "purge" society from the smelly little people. Pretty much the Progressive meme, and the basis for my original comment.

    So "progressives" believe that rich people want to kill poor people. Okay.

    Id guess the latter.

    Nobody is claiming that people aren't getting shot in Chicago. However, as with many cities, the violence is largely compartmentalized into several problem areas. I've seen conservative media try to paint the picture of the entire city of Chicago as one big war zone, and that's simply not accurate. People are not getting blown away outside of Wrigley Field on a daily basis.

    No...thats Detroit...

    The funny part is...I was making a joke, since I dont really take the 'purge' threat all that seriously.

    Think about it a little bit.

    I know -- I was wondering if Ocean had even seen the movie. And even in the 2nd one, the homeless weren't the heroes of the movie. They weren't even targeted. The bad guys were going after people inside their homes.

    what is it with this Ocean person and the word "progressive?" Sheesh, he is throwing this word around more in a week than I've seen used in a year.

    We have a few posters here (I won't bother naming them, so as not to risk modwrath) who seem to think "progressive" is a synonym for "things/people I don't like."
