2081: Egalitarian Dystopia

In Media on August 15, 2008 at 7:31 pm

Check out this trailer for the new movie, 2081, based on the Kurt Vonnegut short story, Harrison Bergeron.

Says Lew Rockwell:

Murray Rothbard loved Kurt Vonnegut’s libertarian short story Harrison Bergeron, a dystopian vision of the year 2081 in which everyone is equal. The beautiful must wear masks, the strong and graceful must be hobbled, the brilliant must have their thoughts electronically interrupted, all by decree of the egalitarian State. Here is the trailer of 2081. And you have to love the name of the website: finallyequal.com. Who says the cause of liberty is not making progress? (Thanks to John Hall.)

It looks pretty awesome.

Oh, and is that R. Lee Wrights in the chair? (joke)
