    Full of **** for the most part, raises some good points that can't be addressed by his critics in others.
    I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK

    He is an opinionated movie producer, similar to Limbaugh, but with caring and an intellect.

    I don't think "raising some good points" is reason enough to commend his work, given that it is total propaganda and full of lies and inaccuracies. Hitler raised some "good points" when speaking about the ridiculous war debt that Germany was forced to pay and led to millions of Germans starving. Those points, by themselves, were well-intended. But what was the other side of that coin?

    Yes, I know. I'm comparing Moore to Hitler. But Hitler was a totalitarian dictator and Moore doesn't mind a totalitarian state. I'd be glad to compare Noam Chomsky to Pol Pot. After all, the former had completely denied what the latter was doing.

    What the hell are you talking about? You're a Libertarian and right wing. Like Hitler. Thanks for dividing by zero and Godwining your own thread within 6 posts.

    Well, I don't appreciate Limbaugh anymore than I appreciate Moore. I think both are somewhat conspiracy theorists. I have a larger problem with Moore because his entertainment leads to people making drastic mistakes at the voting booths. Limbaugh advances a chauvinistic form of radical capitalism while Moore advances the sacrifice of individual rights over collective control. As I said earlier: totalitarianism.

    Check out the Nolan chart and open your mind to the possibility that political thinking extends to a much more than an absolute right-left binary. Libertarians are advocates for liberty. Conservatives are advocates for traditional ways. If spending for the social security of this nation is the norm and has been for at least 70 years, then the CHANGE would be to cut spending and put individuals in charge of their own lives. I don't think Hitler would agree with that. That is why I brought up Hitler. Taking away the fanatical anti-Semitism, in terms of governing a country, Moore would probably agree with many Hitlerian economic policies. Moore really likes Cuba and Fidel Castro. Hitler is not that far away on the political spectrum. The thing they all have in common is support for a totalitarian regime.
