Damon is another hot button in terms of the 'Hollywood Hypocrites,' with conservatives. Damon is a big time advocate for public education yet sends his own children to private schools.
It would be hypocrisy if he didn't pay his local taxes which support public schools. I can afford to use FedEx and UPS, that doesn't mean I'm a hypocrite for supporting the Post Office.
Yeah, given that he is a celebrity sending his kids to public school would be kind of reckless so I can't blame him for using private schools.

So that brings us to the political controversy of the movie. In effect what makes his kids special? Because he is part of the 1 percent?

His kids are in Elysium Middle School while the rest of us have ours in 18th Street('s) School
