Yesterday, I posted an entry suggesting that the advocates of socialized medicine behave very much like members of a UFO cult. That is, they respond to contrary evidence by clinging even more tightly to their absurd belief system.

A friend sent me a link to a Cinema Blend piece that confirms this. These people are apparently incapable of critical thinking. The glaring inaccuracies and transparent dishonesty of SiCKO have no meaning for them. Here’s how this phenomenon manifests itself in the mind of Josh Tyler: 

I have never ever seen any movie have this kind of unifying effect on people. It was like I was standing there, at the birth of a new political movement … If Sicko truly has this sort of power, then Michael Moore has done something beyond amazing … Sicko isn’t just a great movie, seeing it may be one of the most important things you do all year.

One hopes that the majority of Americans are not this impervious to objective data. If they are, they will have to learn the truth about socialized medicine through bitter experience.
