Your Fascism Is Different From Our Earth Fascism

So, let me get this straight: the Wachowski Brothers are behind an adaptation of Alan Moore's V for Vendetta, the story of a lone anarchist rebel conducting a series of attacks against a fascist government in a futuristic England. And in the movie, Stephen Fry will be playing a talk show host who questions the authority of the government-- the same government that controls all media output.

Did Alan Moore run over the pets and children of every person in Hollywood? Because between The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, From Hell, Constantine, the Sam Hann script for Watchmen, and this news, I'm having trouble believing that everyone in the movie business suffers from an utter lack of the ability to get it.

Comments:
I wouldn't be surprised if Alan Moore ate some people's pet. I mean, not to be cruel, but because his beard pet grows hungry.

Though it's probably not the case in the film, 'm intrigued by the idea of a fascist government allowing some dissenters to serve as fallow straw men. Serving to express disagreement using the worst possible execution. Sort of like hiding one's faliure in plain sight.

There's also the possibilty that he's a puppet, put out by the government to give the people the illusion of representation.

Then again, I might as well start saying that, y'know, it's not that far-fetched that Tom Sawyer would grow up to be a spy.
 
I wish we could get a movie where Tom Sawyer tricks Dr. No into painting his fence white.
 
"Do you expect me to talk, Injun Joe?"

"No, Mr. Sawyer, I expect you to die!"

I should not be having this much fun with Hollywood stupidity.
