More Sci-fi Fascism

Meet the immobile Ipods.

In the movie starring Dana Wynter and Kevin McCarthy, a network of aliens are slowly and secretly taking over the bodies of the citizens of a small town by use of mysterious cadaver-like "pods" that are left in their backyards and basements.

I have not come to any conclusion about whether or not SF is consciously or unconsciously mythological fascist fantasy ala Heinlein/Hitler/Rand (sorry AP!) But my gut tells me, with rants like these, my gut becomes ever solidified with conviction. The "Truthiness" of my conviction is as hard as Iraq. I mean a rock.
