i like david rockefeller. he never beat around the bush. feeling under the sweep of things? it really is your own damn fault. you did nothing. they call it perception management. it’s not even that this world could be a simulation, but more like a construct. “we create our universes” as portrayed by the double-slit experiment. Perhaps they figured out the correct measurements to providing the right amount of reality v. horseshit. personally, it looks like they’ve won, and they haven’t even dished out their best material yet. notice how everything is tied together with something else. books with extra volumes. movies with sequels, even reboots. tv shows with crossovers. tv show reboots! it’s a web and snare. and as much as you don’t believe it, you’re in it. look at you trying to gnaw your own leg off now. Cool, eh?
i walked into it myself. i didn’t like it. but, it did point out how much our individualism was constructed or shaped. nobody’s an individual anymore, and hasn’t been for some time. the only way i see to stop this, is for us to all stop. that’s, all of us, get off our screens and back onto the streets, saying hi to strangers, looking at one another, making eye contact, etc. Read the original books that inspired the movie! buuut, this is where THEY win; they counted exactly on how lazy we could be, would be. They gave us a little pinch of paradise to soften our stool. “Escape the comfort of our computer chair and keyboards? Hah! Preposterous.”
they bet on our laziness, but our will to get up is the only thing that can beat them. so, what does it look like? rolling yourself in a burrito blanket on the weekend? or getting some vitamin d and talking to random strangers you’ve never met? The creeps, wierdos and/or kidnappers already out there? pre-emptive training is always good. teach your kids, and keep teaching your kids and simultaneously your kids won’t become creeps, wierdos and kidnappers either. …the sad truth is, as the great philosophers The Clash once said, “only a fool would think someone would save you.” Nobody can count on rescue but if you do everything in your power, then what have you got to feel sorry about? The god that didn’t save you, the god that did, or the god that you believe has done all he’s can? of course i don’t mean God, god. but is the term god not synonymous with your own version of self empowerment? You can say this is a pessimistic US view, but you’re kind of an idiot because you believe hope will cure things like this. That the good will defeat evil. Well the truth is this: ‘hope is forced but hope is not the force’
