Maybe INS failed by not being graphic and extreme.
If it were graphic and extreme, it wouldn't polarize, and hence wouldn't be as good. I like that about Insurrection. The very question "Are 600 people enough for it to be wrong" is an extremely good one.
Taking a clear position with extreme examples, that's easy.
Exactly. It's so easy to get a point across by being extreme. Subtlety requires more. And let's face it, this question asked in INS has been one going around the forums since the movie was released all those years ago, and it's still being debated. I'd say that's only a good thing.
