Nuclear war? I thought the original Planet Of The Apes was a reflection of how our social classes (chimps, orangutans, gorillas) interacts with one another; about how we treat/mistreat beings not like us (man); and how society sometimes hide the truth about ourselves from the mainstream population (forbidden zone archeological dig).
