The Red Nightmare

Love the age of the internet. A bit of Googling around with what fragments of what I could remember, and voila!

To watch it again after nearly 1/2 a century, though, was chilling, particularly the ending - the best and most concrete spelling out of what exactly 'freedom' meant. It's a word W seems particularly fond of spouting, and a word that too many Americans now wouldn't have the faintest idea of how to define, since just about every freedom this film warned us we were in danger of losing... we've lost. It's an eerily prescient film - but not in the way it was intended to be.I never realized it - but it seems the neoCons aren't Republican Nazis -they're actually Red Communists - and the Communist plot to take over America has finally come to fruition.
