Taking Liberties

Since we're discussing liberty, this film has come out at an ideal time for an A-level class beginning the study of political ideology. This film - and its accompanying book - has, naturally, both its admirers and detractors, and clearly we need to see it and read it ourselves to make up our disparate minds. It has certainly generated comment on the blogs. Conservative blogger Iain Dale likes it, while pseudonymous New Labour political researcher (at least I think he is) Hamer Shawcross provides an eloquent, and theory packed, critique of the book. the comments thread on both comments is worth pursuing, especially on the Shawcross blog.

Suggested time to go and see the film en classe will be given tomorrow.
