There’s a new kid movie hitting the screens today called The Ant Bully.
Now I have nothing against ant movies – for instance I enjoyed Antz and A Bug’s Life.
But according to this review from Aint it Cool News, The Ant Bully is a socialist fairy tale.
The reviewer claims the movie is “a warm ultra-liberal hug of a kids film, preaching the joys of socialism and hard work, all the while telling a story of what the world might be like in a liberal post-9/11 world.”
What a shame.
I think Hollywood should balance things off and bring back Popeye, whose motto “I yam what I yam and that's all what I yam,” certainly revealed him as a libertarian.

"A socialist fairy tale". Sounds like the biography of Svend Robinson.
"socialist fairy tale" is an unnecessary redundancy...
Don't you think you should see the movie before commenting? It seems to me it has a positive message -- a little brat gets his comeuppance for flooding an anthill.
And I don't think "I am what I am" is a libertarian credo.
"I yam what I yam" is a libertarian credo, in the sense that Popeye, always the individualist who never let others define him.
Bugs Bunny was the same way.
