Kung Fu Monkey on 300

Larvatus Prodeo put me on to this post by Kung Fu Monkey John Rogers,
which is spot-on.
Rogers exposes the way this film actually opposes core American values.
The independent hero is not everyman, he's a professional soldier -
which the minutemen and the Band of Brothers were not! And the freedom
he's fighting for isn't for everyone, since in Sparta everyone is not
created equal - in fact, you're lucky to survive a few days if you have
any kind of deformity.
