I'm not usually into these little flash thingies, but Woody's voice and the background track put me in a neat little trance for a minute. Worth a quick look.

No kidding. Nice advertisement This is too slick by half.

Indoctrination for good causes is still indoctrination.

Aww. You're just a bunch of cynics!

Did you see the cool merchandise? We should order some...y'know, all of us. It's poetry, multimedia computer poetry. I think we should support it.

I mean, Woody knows the score.

Wait a minute...on second thought, forget it.

hmmmm... indoctrination by a good cause?

Woody is alright in my books. Poor guys father is in prison on a murder charge. He uses his power for good, mostly.

People Vs. Larry Flynt - good movie
Natural Born Killers - disgraceful movie

MWNN, I agree the site can be taken two ways. Certainly he is out to sell his products. They purport to be "Green" and he does seem to be interested in getting people together for activist causes. It could be an cynical marketing ploy, a realistic marketing decision based on targetting a particular demographic that mainstream marketing often overlooks, or a posisitve expression of his beliefs.

I do agree with right-wingers when they say that in many circles of the Left, financial success is seen as evil or "selling-out", ipso facto.

Personally, I don't see how one can have a true social democracy wthout entrepreneurship and the possibility for people to improve their financial situation through hard work. I certainly think it's misguided to fault people for being financially successful.

"Natural Born Killers" is, in my view, the most boring, repellent, self-indulgent, pretentious and exploitative movie that I have ever not walked out of. Juliet Lewis makes my skin cawl at the best of time, I must admit.
