The company founded by George Lucas made the request to fan groups ahead of the premiere of new Star Wars film in Los Angeles tonight, before it gets its first showing in London on Wednesday.
And the release of The Force Awakens has prompted cinemas to warn moviegoers that they will be asked to remove Darth Vader masks and keep their lightsabers sheathed at screenings.
The fact that France has turned into a police state shouldn’t be that surprising to most people. After the terror attack in Paris, their government declared a state of emergency, which may last another three months. As a result, travel has been restricted, there is a heightened police and military presence on the streets, andthousands of raids have been conducted throughout the country in recent weeks.
It doesn’t take a genius to recognize that as a police state. It’s practically a textbook definition. However, there’s more to this state of emergency than heightened security. What France is seeing right now is outright tyranny. The Paris attack was the perfect excuse for their government to transform their society into an open air prison, and there’s no telling what their country will look like when the dust settles.
