MORALITY POLICE

National Review Online: Hollywood Liberalism Killed Philip Seymour Hoffman

National Review Online's Ben Shapiro penned a brief yet thoroughly judgmental blog post on the death of actor Philip Seymour Hoffman, Monday. Hoffman’s “self-inflicted death,” Shapiro wrote of the actors apparent heroin overdose, “is yet another hallmark of the broken leftist culture that dominates Hollywood, enabling rather than preventing the loss of some of its greatest talents.” Shapiro, who is the author of a book called Primetime Propaganda: The True Hollywood Story of How the Left Took Over Your TV, declared, “the Hollywood demand is more for self-abasement, less spirituality, less principle, less standards...No one knows what sort of demons plagued Seymour Hoffman. But without a sound moral structure around those in Hollywood who have every financial and talent advantage, the path to destruction is far too easy.”
