“D’ya see that great movie the other night. Wasn’t it awesome?”
“My favourite soap is so real to life, isn’t it?”
“Love the blood and guts. Wanna go and blow those rag heads to Hell”
“Aw, coulda cried my eyes out. So sad she lost her man”
“We’ll show ‘em exceptional!”
“I so want to be that guy/girl.”
“Make Believe sure, but I’d love to just get lost in that fantasy world right now!”
It has been the dream of every despot, control freak and tyrannical power entity to be able to control, mind meld and subject their every citizen to the will of the ruling elite. Bloody oppression on a local scale was the recipe of choice in ages gone by. Religious edict has always been the ‘causus controlata’ down the ages, irrespective of original intention by instigators of whatever belief system. Today these control freaks have been blessed with an overarching and wet dreamed answer to their prayers in the the form of successful penetration through technological advancement. Far from setting us free it has been purloined and used as the main successful tool for our own self selected imprisonment and/or demise.
For those never having experienced life without the pernicious, invasive creep of things technological, these statements may seem irrational fear mongering nonsense and fuddy duddy rubbish. Oh, ye ignorant masses!
With the innovation of moving images at the end of the 19th century, advancing rapidly towards today’s steroid punched ‘entertainment industry’, a vast all encompassing art form has been corralled into the mind controlling, fear inducing desires of the Empire.
No, not the cinema chain, the ruling elite!
Hollywood right from its outset was created and made then and today in its horrific mode, to capture, steer and inculcate hearts and minds. Our emotions, especially unrefined, raw emotions, untrained to be under intelligent control, become rich fields for exploitation and messing with.
Nah! Harmless fun, distraction and entertainment, you say.
Fun it can be, harmless definitively and absolutely not, distraction certainly and entertainment – well that depends on who is really being entertained.
Some may feel I am harsh in my appraisal. Others will consider me a party pooper on their ‘entertainment choices’. So be it – however until we use our mind, our critical thinking as to what ends and for why this whole industry is so full of glitz, glamour, money, sex and manipulation – well I feel even in those few words many might spark a chink of ‘aha light’. But let us assume that is not the case. Let us just follow the money. By the way the best way to track down dirt, deceit and malevolent intent is by doing precisely that – follow the money!
The entertainment industry – be it music, film, art, television, newspapers (MSM is truly that nowadays) online distractions – has several goals. A main one, for all creaming the most profit, is to serve agendas of masters/owners/Deep State that utilise their inherent expertise for propaganda, mind control and desensitisation of the masses . While so many believe, blissfully ignorant or uncaring of endgames, the very powers instigating these modalities are occupied in, they drink in the lie that truth tellers are mere tinfoil and conspiracy. This creates distraction, division and opposite camps infighting. An abject, intended outcome from the start. However to focus on what we are universally being served is the object of this article.
I need to clarify my interest – I come from a lifetime spent in the ‘industry of illusion’. You could say I served the propaganda masters fully and for selfish intent. Well you would be right.
I saw the advertising and film industry as a marvellous channel for my creativity and rose to be a significant master of the arts. What I failed to take on board and recognise was the full feature, the main attraction behind the main attraction, if you will. Experience and years have helped open my eyes and see the real hidden pernicious creature behind the curtain. The Wizard was truly non existent – read my book Dreams and Realities to navigate that underbelly, a con with feet of clay, supported only by the belief in the Yellow Brick Road to dreams offered temptingly but never allowed to realise in the true potential those denying it allow themselves. You are never allowed to join the club unless you live by their rules.
There are so many examples to cite along the rocky road to propagandised perfection, however I will merely take a couple I came across today that inspired me to write this.
Because we are being hit tsunami-like with the well proven and successful operation called entertainment , we have become so distracted, so divided among each other and so unclear and incapable in recognising truth from lies. Where to start becomes a minefield. Most take the position in comfortable ignorance, easy compliance and self satisfied stupidification. So easy to avoid uncomfortable and disrupting truths. Best slag off those awake to such things while remaining dead asleep.
I turned to watch a trailer for the film Arrival – a film I admit I very much wish to watch, as the underlying story is interesting. This of course is what makes any of us watch, gain interest. Nothing wrong with that, absolutely. Where the entrance of discrimination against intent (with the creators’ money) and objectives are concerned – it is vital to hold clear thinking, intelligence and reasoning on why such things, outside of pure entertainment is concerned, are set before us.
The film deals with aliens first contact, comprehending and communicating between two parties. It also deals with misinterpretation, the usual blast’ em to Hell arrogance of the military mind against a sage and considered empathic approach. So many films of ‘aliens, otherworld, zombie’ subject based movies ‘entertain’ through the fear factor. the unknown. Whereas masters such as Hitchcock used the fear element as a dramatic tool and brilliantly correctly, fear utilised today is far more bent on drilling that fear deep into our core system,keeping it alerted awaiting a trigger through use of key word triggers (NLP) in daily life.
Easily identifiable ones come to mind triggering gut reaction or feeding a false sense of comfort on a daily basis: some are conspiracy theory, tin foil, collateral damage, boots on the ground, shock and awe, extraordinary rendition, Islamist, terrorists and on and on. On the political stage we get a real load of terms to control and persuade. Death with dignity (for suicide), austerity measures, quantitive easing, vertically challenged for short. Recently deplorables is a current derogatory term for those thinking differently and of course post-truth – as if there is something after truth!
Euphemisms are a propagandistic tool of misdirection. They ill serve a free people. But advocates won’t stop manipulating us until we insist that they “call a spade a spade” – Wesley J. Smith
The process of dumbing down through the rise of ‘dumb’ films is certainly one way of condoning and retaining ignorance levels and supporting lack of intellect to be a positive quality and hip to be lauded. Making heroes out of the Idiocracy is not only a cheap gag but also satiates those who exist on that level in their blissful state of ignorance.
Another film I ‘trailered’ was IT in which the excellent Pierce Brosnan seems to have put his name against, in order to settle some outstanding tax liabilities perhaps. The story line can be summed up in showing the audience that anyone, especially the CIA, though not portraying this film’s antagonist, can get into your life completely in our technological age of uber infestation. Whether the film has merits is for me irrelevant as the cash cow was always to implant even greater fear in Joanna Public. Mission – constantly ramp up the fear we are never safe from terror. That the terror is incoming and from the inside is an unspoken truth never ending investigation. They who set up, order and perpetrate these things have zero interest in any of us maintaining our sentient, individual beings with pertinent choice. Ah, choice that’s another great euphemism for freedom, democracy and the ‘Mercan way, itself a euphemism for the right to invade over 70 countries world wide in its relatively short existence.
Black Hawk Down, The White Helmets, Designated Survivor, World War Z, American Sniper, Argo and a host of others hidden in many other subject areas, are doing an excellent job conditioning the feeble minds of compliant sheep.
In the vein of mind control and softening up a population for current and future lock down, dehumanisation and denial of empathic life the movie industry, as sponsored and run by Hollywood and the Mainstream media, has been outrightly successful in pretty much all areas of its objectives. Yet alongside the proliferation of their fake news, these organs are awakening even the most somnolent with their more and more implausible BS. It is unsurprising the worm is turning. The battle now is for our minds, as the visionary Sir George Trevelyan once so rightly stated. The real battlefield and war zones are in our heads, in the way we perceive, think and make choices.
Since getting the best from these activities requires a serious dose of self education, it is incumbent on each of us to develop critical thinking, our capacity to filter truth from lies and a desire for far deeper research than is offered by way of the institutionalised news, entertainment and information outlets. By refusing to take up these arms we consign ourselves to the fate and mercy of tyrannical rule, dressed, cross dressed and displayed by way of celebrity icon, sexualised music totems and BS spread as our daily ration. The deep oozing, putrid and fast decomposing cesspit of gargantuan lies offer illimitable distraction and fascination to the pliant. Until we are able to disengage from the overt control pushed through entertainment and newspeak we will all fast forward down into the oceans of swill and sure death.
It is absolutely fine and proper we entertain ourselves but let us do so on a level so far removed from the base plate offered as the choice of tyrants, psychopaths and abject loonies. We feed the beast with our coin. We buy into their scripts and digest their dirt. Withdrawing our support may mean short term loss, yet supporting alternative funding for films of depth and insight is one step in the right direction. Crowdfunding such efforts, promoting the few films the music that matters and the art that is revolutionary is so far into our grasp as to leave no room for excuses.
Can you imagine a world created through the highest good, the profoundest intention and with the benefit of present technology? Then if you can you will know what a golden gift we have all denied ourselves and been denied. We may not be able to heal the past and our lost way, yet collectively through whatever means we each have at our disposal we can assure our future and our children’ future will not have to carry a trace of the present contamination and toxicity.
Now that is a show I will pay the top dollar for!
