As connoseurs of politics, and, formerly for many of us, political commentary provided by corporate media interests, we are all aware now of how such PROGRAMMING influences thought and actions as a result of that influenced thought. Little things like voting for RINOs because, well, yeah, they’re rats, but their OUR rats, comes to mind.
Most Americans who follow the Make America Great Again agenda now know what folly that is.
Over the last few decades, though, that is the mentality that allowed the enemy, the deep state via Chy-NAH or any other mechanism, to penetrate the American psyche and infiltrate the government to the point that the collective body of the swamp no longer looks out for the interests of the people, but a hidden corporate entity that seeks only to serve itself.
President Donald Trump talked about that during his 2016 campaign, actually.
Usually, We the People are not allowed to see what the deep state is up to. At least, they don’t want us to see it and usually explain whatever is happening away and sweep the scandal under a rug.
In the case of Hollywood, though, we are aware of the wholesale purchase of much of what is a driver of our culture: moving pictures that depict an alternate reality which does influence thinking on many topics. Chy-NAH has owned a fair piece of Tinseltown for quite a while, and the offerings from that entertainment media reflect that Americans are no longer in charge out there.
Oscar, you were such a contrarian.
Naturally, when it comes to Chy-NAH and the way the power brokers do things, it’s pretty obvious diminishing the culture to the very people inhabiting it is the purpose and goal. But what if the masters another level up or so, the deep state/cabal sorts who are reportedly into just about every taboo from a traditional Christian perspective, have been using entertainment in all quarters to soften the impact of the reality that such activity happens right along side of inserting the belief that this sort of thing happens only in the movies, and there is no way it could possibly happen in real life.
In the last 30 or so years multiple different franchises have appeared in entertainment dealing with the occult, but two stand out for having been almost strictly about good vs. evil in the world of magic.
The first is a television series known as “Charmed” where three sisters – all witches – battle the forces of evil in their little world, and are bound by “the power of three.” (Is it just me or is that a little too close to the Trinity of Father, Son and Holy Ghost for comfort?) The program did not air on any of the main three networks, but on “The WB.”
The second, of course, is the world of Harry Potter. In one of the more romantic stories out there about women struggling in a man’s world, accounts of the creator and author of seven books that introduced us to magic in a muggle world having written the first one on a manual typewriter whenever she could get her infant daughter to sleep didn’t hurt what turned out to be one very profitable franchise.
The question, though, is why were these two franchises green lighted. Both are purely fictional, and even the late, great exorcist Fr. Gabriel Amorth at first dismissed concerns about them as being “pretending” not practicing magic. After a while, though, Fr. Amorth was less sanguine when he claimed what was really happening was the glamourization of witchcraft.
Some of us are fond of saying, “You see what Madonna started” as a way to explain the sexification of all things female, but the truth is there has always been an undercurrent of the less than wholesome procreative activities in life.
Even today, what is considered to be pornography still carries a stigma even if it has grown in popularity verses actually having to deal with real women, and take your time and do it right bedroom adventures. However, make the graphic sex in print form, put it on a blog, and model it after series romance, and you get “50 Shades of Gray,” a series brought to us by the same mind that created “Twilight” the fantasy romance series for teens. (Not kidding. They came from the same place. E.L. James’s dirty mind.)
Somehow, both of these series ended up on screen. Why and how doesn’t exactly matter. What does is that someone out there wants what happens in a bedroom to be an open book far more than anything Madonna or Lady Gaga could get away with in a music video, and they want the kinky stuff normalized.
(Just as an aside, the world of romance from the big publishers has taken a turn to having REALLY lurid bedroom scenes in great detail in the novels. The details now include descriptions that were off limits for the first 35 years, at least, of the genre’s existence. Read the reviews of some of the best sellers, and the readers are complaining about that. Romance readers want the story, not so much the sex.)
People with weak stomachs shouldn’t watch this.
The less said about this the better.
So far, the rest of the lot of crimes against civilization and humanity that the “elites” are rumored to favor have not made it on screen or necessarily in print for mass consumption. Human sacrifice, child rape and the like has not been eased into the culture via the entertainment avenues.
Those topics will definitely be harder to swallow for people raised to be decent human beings.
That doesn’t mean, though, that a couple other topics haven’t entered popular entertainment with the possible intent of diminishing the reality in many minds that, yes, this could really happen here.
Real or imagined. With dystopia, that is the question. Everything is unpleasant, and the government is in complete control.
That is the thematic basis for the popular series beginning with “The Hunger Games” by Suzanne Collins. The Hunger Games is by far not the first series in print or on film to feature dystopian themes, but thus far in the century of Hollywood entertainment, it is the most popular. It is also the one the young people of the world relate to since they were born after many of the unpleasant regimes of Europe fell during the last fifteen years of the twentieth century.
As the “Biden Administration” comes into focus, rumors of re-education camps and food shortages, and more are creeping into the public consciousness. Whether or not it really happens is another story.
CONSPIRACY AND SECRET SOCIETIES
One would think that after the term “conspiracy theory” was weaponized by the mainstream media following the JFK public execution, there would be no need to demonize the concept further.
Maybe it was just the number of people suddenly waking up to the reality that all was not as it was reported to be, but in a series of romance novels penned by best-selling author Jayne Ann Krentz beginning in 2007, the Arcane Society took on life and brought secret societies, and the conspiracies around them, into the pop fiction world. (I’ve read them all.)
The Arcane Society is a group living under the radar, as the members of it are “sensitives,” or people with special gifts. Among them are hunters (men with great night vision and who are very fast), dreamlight readers, aura readers, hypnotists, a siren (coloratura soprano who can kill with her high notes), and various other talents that ordinary humans just don’t have. There’s even a family of forgers, and another of contract killers, but that’s incidental. The Arcane Society people are the good guys. Well…except for the subset of them known as “Nightshade.”
See, the people of Nightshade – big money and creepy scientists they are bankrolling – are trying to recreate the “Founder’s Formula” to make sensitives stronger than what they naturally are. And once somebody is on the formula, there is no going back. Skip a couple days, and the person taking it dies. Naturally, the head of Nightshade was once a member of the Council which rules over the Arcane Society.
Add into that the person in charge of the Society’s investigation arm being a natural strategist talent, and CONSPIRACY is a running theme through the books which is kind of lampooned given the two older women who really do believe in conspiracies. One of them even keeps log books of comings and goings at an “institute” which is a character left over from a previous series.
Yes, this is pretty preposterous, but that’s what fiction is for, right?
In the end, the conspiracy people are proven right, but not before a whole lot of inter-family matchmaking occurs. There’s even a Mason-like power structure in the Nightshade organization. Not kidding.
The point, though, is that all of these hard to believe and swallow concepts are already in the public sphere, just not as reality. It has been presented as fiction, even if a lot of it is perfectly real. (Arcane Society sensitives, no, but the rest, yes.)
Which begs the question: was all this put into the public as fiction on purpose so that people would literally say, “That only happens in the movies and in books”?
It is worth asking.
