East of Pandora

Just in time to lift the Avatar Blues, my take on the movie is at Public Discourse today, which does I think - if this is possible - say something that has not yet been said on the matter. I also attempt to address the PomoCon/FroPoCon rift in the mediating spirit of Bob Cheeks. In short, I use Lewis to make the point that Avatar does not illuminate the difference between liberals and conservatives, but instead reveals the more basic division between Adam and Cain.
