Got a screed about all of mankind's faults? Can't get anyone to pay attention, however, because we've heard it all a thousand times before? Even fellow greenies react to it with a half hearted, "right on" (while suppressing a yawn.) Get a job on a sci-fi movie, and put those same words into the mouth of a contemptuous alien. Suddenly people think the words have become profound and thought provoking. I'm starting to understand how "The Day the Earth Stood Still" got an 8/10.
