Pirates are Good?
Just got done watching Pirates of the Carribbean. I enjoyed the movie for its special effects, witty dialogue, and great storyline. I was a little disturbed by the overall plotline, however. The main message it seemed to promote was that--given certain circumstances--it is ok to steal, plunder, maim, and engage in all manner of pirate-like activities. It is possible to be, in the words of the character played by Johnny Depp, "a pirate and a good man."
Of course, I don't get my philosophy of life from the movies, but many Americans in our culture do. If the entertainment industry is so concerned about the "piracy" of cds and dvds, they might want to take a closer look at how they are promoting such activities. Either that or stop suing the people who do. After all, just because they are pirates does not mean that they are not good men. Right?
