“Incorporated” revolved around Ben Larson (Sean Teale, “Reign”), a young
executive who concealed his true identity to infiltrate a very dangerous
corporate world to save the woman he loves and quickly found he wasn’t the
only one in this world with a secret. Dennis Haysbert, who just booked a lead role in NBC’s pilot “Reverie,” also
starred, along with Julia Ormond and Eddie Ramos.

corporations take over world, in echoes of “Rollerball”
and “Soylent Green” and
other science fiction apocalyptic movies, in which corporations impoverish
everyone in the world, in conjunction with the “greenhouse effect,” but whose
executives live the high life and wield power. No imagination. Hollywood is obsessed
with smearing business and even technology. This mindset dates back to Fabian Socialist
author H.G. Wells’s “When
the Sleeper Awakes,” (1899, revised 1910) and Fritz Lang’s film “Metropolis,“ (1927)

how to ensure free cultural production under such conditions.

Guaranteed to put you to sleep
The novel’s hackneyed plot and narrative nearly put me to sleep,
sooner than did Looking Backward. The
only part of the story that has stuck in my mind all the years since I read it,
and which Wikipedia omits to mention in its synopsis (it would reflect badly on
socialist fellow Utopian Wells), is when Wells describes how the government calls
in an army of black soldiers (from Africa) to put down the rebellion; the government
knows that these soldiers would relish attacking whites and would be merciless

There are numerous Hollywood productions about gas
shortages and environmental disasters, too numerous to even list here. The most
famous to date is Blade Runner (1982), a “remake” of which is due out
this year. Some of the dumbest movies are representative by Day of the Animals (1977,
also due for a remake), in which the ozone later, allegedly depleted by
industrial pollutants (aerosols), exposes animals to solar radiation and drive
them crazy and aggressive. Another ecological bomb is Food
of the Gods (1976), very loosely based on another H.G. Wells

his wheelchair and collapses, apparently dead, the frogs croaking as they hop
over his corpse.

said just that. Hollywood has been in the thrall of the Left since at least
the 1930’s. Novelist Ayn Rand worked in Hollywood
as a screenwriter, and had a love-hate relationship with it. She wrote “The Screen
Guide for Americans.” The Michigan State copy of the Screen Guide can’t be
excerpted directly, but OpenCulture

Ayn Rand helped the FBI “identify” It’s a Wonderful Life as a

Communists in Hollywood,” Rand writes, “is not the production of political
movies openly advocating Communism. Their purpose is to corrupt our moral
premises by corrupting non-political movies — by introducing small, casual
bits of propaganda into innocent stories — thus making people absorb the basic
premises of Collectivism by indirection and implication.” And so, to counteract
