Harrison Bergeron

I’ve been recommending to friends for a very long time that they see the movie Harrison Bergeron, but I’ve regularly heard from them that they couldn’t get hold of a copy.

That will no longer be an issue. As was recently pointed out at SF Signal, one can now watch the movie online.

For those who’ve never heard about it, the movie is set after the second American revolution, when people have finally realized that people are not “all created equal”, and thus given the government the responsibility of making and keeping everyone equally mediocre. Watch it – I’m sure you’ll enjoy it!
