Fascism is a governmental system led by a dictator having complete power, forcibly suppressing opposition and criticism, regimenting all industry, commerce, etc., and emphasizing a totalitarian nationalism, state socialism and often racism. Today's column investigates Hollywood's love affair with fascism revealed in the popular movie trilogy "The Matrix," written and directed by the famed Wachowski brothers.

Even for World Nut Daily, this is way over the top.
This is a bad definition of fascism. A fascist system is a statist system that subjugates liberty of individuals to the group rights of the majority, as defined by the majority or those purporting to speak for the majority.
NAZI Germany could theoretically have existed as a democracy and likely would have for most of its existence. Hitler's plebiscite is generally considered to have been a mostly fair vote.
“diabolical’ is a little, shall we say, ‘descriptive’.
but I am more fascinated with the poster who said, “inane stupidity”. This phrase captures my interest because that is ‘exactly’ what I have always thought.
I don't want to discuss the whole Jew=Hollywood thing, but, even if there is just one Jew there, Does he think these people are going to keep him alive? Does he think they will spare him? Is there no Jewish 'disgust' in Hollywood? Does a Jew have the capacity to be disgusted or fearful of what they are doing. Just a question.
"But..but..please, I helped you! I supported you..." Come on...You can't kill me! I did everything!"
Yes comrade, thank you very muxh!
An interesting article, I had not heard that interpretation of the Matrix before. I’m not convinced by it, but I always like to hear a new perspective.
The Canadians, British, Germans and French JUST LOVE Mob Rule by mobsters.. as well as the Norwegians, Sweeds, and Fins do.. and the Spanish, Portugese, Italians and Greeks..
Democracy is the road to socialism. -Karl Marx
Democracy is indispensable to socialism. The goal of socialism is communism. -V.I. Lenin
The meaning of peace is the absence of opposition to socialism .-Karl Marx
Not to speak of the Russians and Chinese.. and Yes the Indians.. and Australians.. and all the country's in South and Central America..
The United States is pretty much all this planet has left thats a little FREE...
Whats happening in Wisconsin effects the entire WORLD...
AND IS A BLOCKBUSTER... and epic battle..
It never used to be so in Hollywood.
Fascism is a more recent fad for Hollywood; I would say since the mid-late 1960’s. The Vietnam War was probably a catalyst for it and ever since then, Hollywood’s fascination for liberal fascism has found a home there. That is why Hollywood was a magnet for communists and still is. And it is even more so today than ever before.
Hollywood has flirted with communism and fascism every once in a while before this in such films as GRAPES OF WRATH among others.
But now communism and fascism have become the norm in Hollywood. Just look at the number of films where the bad guys are big business CEOs or heartless bankers.
What is inane and stupid, IMHO, is (a) assuming that the Matrix movies represent all of the Hollywood film industry today, and (b) believing that there is anything "fascist" about The Matrix.
(a) I cited many other fascist-themed movies besides the Matrix in my article; (b) If you can’t see that the Matrix is an allegory to fascism, please re-read my definition of fascism in the first paragraph. That’s why I defined my terms to avoid ignorance or confusion.
Thanks for your comments and quotes from Marx and Lenin. Look for them as a syllogism in my next article, “The Molech Paradgimn, pt. 2” @ www.wnd.com on 3/19
