Re-edited a post: "The Movie 'I Am' and Tommy Pitera"

Here. About the movie "I Am", which, while being very idealistic, does not deal with the dark core of life.

"The movie stresses that social connections with each other are hardwired into our brains, as well as tendencies for compassion. Fundamentally, there's a problem with naive interpretations of cooperation, love, and social cohesion, and that problem can illustrated by a man named Tommy Pitera."

Who was a "Mafia Psychopath".

I believe that all of things that are outlined by Tom Shadyac in the film are good and should be worked for, but that at some point society needs to deal with the hard questions about folks who commit truly terrible acts in their midst.
