Why doesn’t Spectre just ask for the cash from government?


Who needs Bond villains threatening civilization with destruction when corporations get the money just by asking? Over at RightWisconsin, I pointed out the absurdity of evil corporate CEOs as Bond villains when corporate welfare is so lucrative.

I’ll be really disappointed and bored if another Bond movie takes on an evil corporate CEO like Max Zorin, Hugo Drax or Elliot Carver. Remember when the enemy turned out be evil Big Oil heiress Elektra King?
The plots never made much sense. Why threaten mass destruction to steal millions when you can just ask government for the money? You don’t have to build a solar-powered laser like Scaramanga. All you need are good lobbyists and the ability to spin a good story.
