I took my girlfriend to go see the movie Avatar. Before I bash it I will say that it does a good job of bringing to light the possible/likely consequences of not respecting the delicate balance that exists within in nature. Capitalism does tend to exploit nature; however, people are realizing this, hence going green is becoming trendy.
With that said, the entire movie exists to show how the military's sole purpose is to exploit the natural resources of primitive cultures, which is directly stated by the main character in the movie.
I'm very upset that this is the message being sent about our military. An organization that is founded upon selfless service ought to be portrayed in a more respectful manner. As someone who studies communication (including mass communication) I can tell you that this movie is actively sculpting people's opinions about our military.
All and all, there are too many things that are just down right disturbing. Maybe I'm reading too far into it. This sort of exemplifies the catch 22 with the 1st amendment.
