the value of literature
So I just watched the Bruce Willis movie, Surrogates. It was entertaining and all, but I gotta say, the characters in the movie could have saved themselves a lot of trouble had they just read Kurt Vonnegut's Player Piano.
Or maybe just a little Greek mythology.
10/10/14: So, I've been thinking about it, and I realize that maybe the writers had read Player Piano, because their plan was to kill every single person using a Surrogate, which was, like 90+% of the population. That probably would have stopped people from rebuilding. For a bit, anyway.
