A Minority Opinion

A whole series of them, in fact, from Mark Thornton (senior resident fellow at the Ludwig von Mises Institute):

"Star Wars: The Phantom Menace, one of the finest allegories on classical liberal political economy to ever appear on screen."

"People will no doubt eventually recognize that Lucas is writing a reflection of Western civilization, a reflection of our own experience."

"Therefore we can trace Anakin's problems back to government intervention in the economy."

Once again the chattergentsia go into their navel gazing trance, chanting deconstructionist and post-modernist nonsense. How do they chant in two tones at the same time? I'll give you a hint: Their mouths aren't the only hollow chamber in their heads.

In Tom World people who waste my time with this kind of slop would earn a one-way ticket to the Soylent Green Resort.
