Re: When did the perception of Insurrection change?

Maybe INS failed by not being graphic and extreme.

If you'd done the immortality thing the way Spinrad does in BUG JACK BARRON - that you can have immortality if you're rich & elite, you just have to harvest an organ from an african-american child before puberty, killing him/her in the process -- THAT pretty much puts it on the viewer in a way you can't rationalize or justify.

If, on the other hand, your rich guy gets immortality by forcibly transplanting a kid from Jersey to Missoula, it sounds like something you could smooth over with some payola.
