    Starship Troopers is a hard film to pin down. Some say it's an obvious satirical takedown or militaristic fascism. Others say a straightforward interpretation suggesting the film is earnestly pro-fascist isn't necessarily wrong. So, which is it? In this Wisecrack Edition, we'll study the powerful incredibly nuanced political philosophy of this sci-fi cult classic.

    It's incredible how the actual ideology of fascism is completely overlooked and ignored in this. There is a reason to not really look into a really essential feature of Fascism, the placement of all power in the state. Everything is sublimated to it including corporations & the individual. Sound familiar? It what the left and progressives always lust for. You see Fascism is essentially rooted in Marxism and only saw itself as a branch of it. Conservativism puts the individual above all and the state's role not as the master. Decentralized power versus vertically integrated tyrannies. So there are really just flavors of Marxist ideologies, one based on class (Communism), one based purely on the State being supreme (Italian Fascism) and one based on Race (Nazism). The newer addition to this unholy trio Neo-Marxism based on manipulating a binary view of oppressor versus oppressed. How many people will have to die for this latest iteration? The obfuscation of what Fascism is and it's placement as "right-wing" ideology is the big lie that Dinesh D'Souza covers so well and exposes completely. The progressives & the left really love fascism, the actual real fascism from its found Giovanni Gentile.

    this reviewer is a commie rat. no matter how evil the enemy they will use broken liberal logic to complain about the boogeyman nazi and why they are never right. even if it means saving humanity from giant bugs the nazi are still bad haha. the nazi saved europe from commies but they are still the "bad guys" and never thanked for that sacrifice

    women having rights means that our society is doomed. how else you think all the past empires died? they want you to think other forces took over. but nobody has the power to attack the great empires. those are all lies. women were given equality like today and they decayed society from within. history is repeating because ppl are dumb as cattle

    Dear Wisecrack, the saying "Come on you apes do you want live forever?" is an old military expression that has little to do with social darwinism and more to rally men to courage in times of extreme hardship. Not everything has a deeper meaning or be read into.

    For the many debates on how society is portrayed in Starship Troopers as to whether it is a fascist society or simply militaristic.... How many of you bothered to watch Starship Troopers 2, or Starship Troopers Muaraders? I mean .. the next Sky Marshall is an idiot who makes propaganda records and is a pretty boy, that the rest of the council uses as a mouth piece. Religion becomes a tool too boost recruitment in the second bug war. Rico is almost hanged for simply challenging a superior officer who challenged a starving farmer for disrespecting the state..... It's definitely an authoritarian state.

  • Vollification

    It's not fascism, a fascist state doesn't have a voting system. The Federation has one and it's not a system based on race, religion, education level, class, family relations or age. The system is simply "Citizens has the vote and service guarantees citizenship!" It is by far the most equal and fair system that ever existed in theory.

    I once met Verhoeven and had a beer and informal chat with him for about 10 -15 minutes, when he visited The Hague to prepare for the shooting of his film 'Zwartboek' ('Blackbook').
    There are two important things about Verhoeven to take into consideration:
    1. As a mathematician who studied at the prestigious Leyden University, he is an intellectual who has a restless curiosity and inquisitive mind, eager for knowledge. He is fascinated by religion, moral dilemmas, the propensity of humans for bias and abuse of power, and by the effects this has on society, international politics, diplomacy, and military strategy.
    2. Paul Verhoeven is Dutch in every possible way (except for his current US citizenship). He values freedom and independence and hates abuse of power, elitism, authoritarianism and fascism. But one thing he hates just as much is submission, cowardice, and lack of responsibility.
    As a Dutchman, he doesn't like to be lectured, and he does not want to lecture other people either. Instead, he just wants to make his audience aware of the moral ambiguity of life, the entanglement of violence and power, ethical dilemmas, trust vs betrayal, ideology vs personal responsibility, weaponization of the truth by mind control and deception, revenge vs forgiveness, etcetera.
    He does so in a typically Dutch confrontational and sometimes uncomfortable style, rather than via symbolism, metaphores, and analogies.
    Verhoeven has said many times in interviews that he doesn't like to tell his audience what to think, or who is right or wrong. In his movies, every hero can have a dark side as well. There are no saints. Movies featuring flawless heroes or perfect good guys are boring. Verhoeven wants to show the inner conflict in people, and invites the viewer to question the true motives of the characters in his movies, so it creates a tension that makes storytelling much more interesting (like in 'Basic Instinct').
    Starship Troopers is obviously satire, but Verhoeven also wanted to make his audience look into the mirror, while at the same time giving them the freedom to decide for themselves how they would feel and what they would decide in a given situation.
    Let's hope Verhoeven will make a couple more films before he really retires.

    I agree with the conclusion that Starship Troopers is really a philosophical work meant to draw the audience into the pro-fascist view only to make the audience ask some tough and deep questions about how they got there. I think the ultimate goal was to fight fascism by inoculating the audience against the insidious spread of it.

    Completely missed the point on Storm of Steel. If you had actually studied Jünger, you would know that he constantly revised Storm of Steel throughout his life at times, playing down or expanding the politics and and enthusiasm for violence. Storm of Steel is not an analytical, anti-war book like Under Fire or All Quiet that you pudgy neoliberals want it to be, but merely a story. It offers only the events that Jünger experienced as he saw them, focusing only the who, what, where, when and how and not the why. Also, nice trick of falsely claiming content from Der Kampf als Inner Erlebnis to be in Storm of Steel, assuming viewers wouldn't know any better. And if you did understand Jünger, you would know that his pro-militarism, statist stance was a phase of his writings that really only existed in his texts from the 20's and 30's and that the final version of Storm of Steel does not reflect these views.

That makes sense like selective service, except for that equal rights thing but wahmen still are not begging for that or to rush to sign up. But their arguments mention turncoats, yes unscrupulous bugs that wanted power without the hard work. Stalin. Let's the pawns/drones do the dirty work. Of course like this ass he wants you to forget fascist kill failures, the air marshal was replaced in the satirical movie. The book is better, if the fascist haven't burned them all. Sargon of Akkad's explanation uses sense while this idiot uses fascist tactics to have you "see" otherwise.

Sept 11th got us the Patriot act and the the even worse National security act....

    Lt. Radzcek is actually paraphrasing US Marine Corps Sergeant Major Daniel Daly, who reportedly called out "Come on, you sons of bitches, do you want to live forever?" before charging German positions in Belleau Wood. He told a Marine Corps Historian that he had said, "For Christ's sake men COME ON! Do you want to live forever?" A similar phrase, "Lads, do you want to live forever?" is attributed to Frederick the Great.

    I should also point out that the Bugs made no attempt at diplomacy before they murdered Mormon colonists who colonized a Bug world AGAINST the wishes and advice of the Federation. The Bugs AGAIN made no attempt at diplomacy before DESTROYING Buenos Aires, killing close to 10 million men, women, and children. So please tell me why I'm supposed to support the Arachnids?

    As a review of the movie, OK.

    Obviously the narrator or writer never read Heinlein's book any more than Paul Verhoeven did. Verhoeven set out to conflate "military" with "fascist" and did a stellar job . Had he read the book he "adapted", he would have not been able to do it in the same vein. Honestly at least. A another person said, Verhoeven is an idiot.

    Or is he simpl;y smart enough to know that most people are too lazy to check up on his screed by reading the book, and will accept his rantings at face value.

    Other than that, Casper is Johnny Rico is an abomination. (And in the book, Johnny was Philippine, and spoke Tagalog at home. So much for the "Aryan" Johnny. His Mother, not his Dad was in B.A. when it got smeared by the bugs.)
