Rather than fix the behavior, shoot the messenger seems to be the policy.
Funny. Most reviews/feedback I have read has compared Avatar to “Dances With Wolves” only set in space.
Apparently, there are numerous guilty consciousnesses (sp?) to go around. Americans feel guilty because of the poor treatment of the Native American populations. Chinese feel guilty because they evict people from land that the government wants to exploit, and bullies and thugs are hired to do the dirty work.
Wonder how the movie fares in Europe…? I bet the British love Avatar because of the memories of Colonialism that the movie must revive!
