Zombies 1, Socialists 0

Michael Moore’s latest film, Capitalism, opened weakly with only $1.5 million in box office receipts. For purposes of comparison, Zombieland raked in nearly $10 million. Still, even unsuccessful propaganda can do damage. It’s a safe bet that hardly any of those who went to see Zombieland actually believe in zombies, while a considerable number of those who saw Moore’s film may actually believe in socialism.
