You've already used up your once yearly free pass.

First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out--
Because I was not a Socialist.

Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out--
Because I was not a Trade Unionist.

Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out--
Because I was not a Jew.

Then they came for me--and there was no one left to speak for me.

Maybe "they" came for you because you were saying something crazy like comparing JJ Abrams directing a couple of blockbuster scifi movies to the Holocaust? It's not even a power grab in comparison to NewsCorp or Time Warner, which are also --despite being far more concerning in terms of too much control of the newsmedia especially-- not remotely comparable to the Holocaust. Get a grip, man.

But don't worry, Kanye agrees with you that no one man should have all that power. And Kanye is always rational, so you're in good company.

'First Contact' is the tale of a man who just wants to cash in on his creation so he can get wasted on an island full of naked women, but his fans keep insisting that he's a saintly visionary who has profoundly altered the world. AKA - 'I Don't Want to be a Statue: The Gene Roddenberry Story.'
