"They've sent us a message that they can take whatever they want. But we will send them a message that this is our land." - Jake Sully, Avatar

Some who like to call themselves "liberals" or "progressives" have praised the movie "Avatar" for its "political and environmental" message. Of course the only message they heard was anti-capitalist. Evil corporations had destroyed their own planet and now were in the process of ruining the beautiful environment of the moon Pandora.

No one would side with such evil if it really existed. But it could only exist with the cooperation of politicians and bureaucrats. In true capitalism (which the world has never seen), a corporation which attempted evil practices would quickly be stopped by a government whose sole mandate was to respond to any initiation of force or fraud.

Yet the movie "Avatar" has a much, much deeper message, and the deeper message is exactly the opposite of the so-called "liberal" and "progressive" agenda. Whereas "liberals" and "progressives" want more government bureaucracies and more government forcing people to live as rulers decide (using the environment as an excuse for naked power-lust), the movie "Avatar" is about not forcing people.

The deeper message the movie "Avatar" shouts out for those who have ears to hear is: leave people free to live as they so choose. In a society lacking government thugs forcing their man-made rules on people and concocting secret back room deals with corporation lobbyists, free people soon learn they must live in rapport with their environment. In the movie, the Na'vi people are very spiritual, and being tuned in spiritually they live in a libertarian society, not a fascist society sold to the people with phony labels like "liberal" or "progressive."

"Avatar" is about innocents defeating thugs. It makes no difference if the thugs are hired by corporations to achieve a bottom line profit, or if thugs are union organizers, or if the thugs arrogantly strut around their government offices in Brooks Brothers suits. Thugs are thugs are thugs.

We wonder if "Avatar" will help wake up Americans and encourage them to rally each other against the "liberal" and "progressive" thugs in Washington: "They've sent us a message that they can take whatever they want. But we will send them a message that this is our land."

To understand the evil psychology of modern "liberal progressives," read Ayn Rand's "Atlas Shrugged"

"God's laws will keep your minds at peace, because peace IS His Will, and His laws are established to uphold it. His are the laws of freedom, but yours are the laws of bondage. Since freedom and bondage are irreconcilable, their laws CANNOT BE UNDERSTOOD TOGETHER. The laws of God work only for your good, and there ARE no other laws beside His. Everything else is merely lawLESS, and therefore chaotic." -Jesus Christ in A Course in Miracles
