The Romance of Resistance

Last week, the LA Times banned the phrase resistance fighters to describe anti-American forces in Iraq, saying the term romanticizes the "insurgents" and "guerrillas" (editorially approved terms) and evokes World War II-era heroism.

This morning, Oliver and I both received this link, from completely different sources, for The Meatrix, an effective piece of agitprop, which demonstrates that Resistance, as a narrative concept, is indeed still romantic, and Resistance as a social practice is alive, funny, and thriving on all fronts.
