Hello all,

Last night I watched the movie 'Demolition Man' for the first time in a good few years, and some things really stuck-out that not only appeared to predict things that have come to pass, it felt like I was watching the road map to where the world is headed.

Very brief recap; Demolition Man is a futuristic 1993 action/sci-fi/comedy starring Sylvester Stallone, Wesley Snipes, Sandra Bullock, and Jesse Ventura.

I was struck by how prophetic the movie seemed, from how easily people were offended, video conference calls, chip implants, self driving cars, and others.

This scene opens with Stallone asking for a cigarette, only to be told that "smoking is not good for you, and it has been deemed that anything that's not good for you, is bad, hence, illegal".

Bullock's character goes on to list other illegal things, including alcohol, caffeine, contact sports, meat, bad [offensive] language, [something or another] gasoline, uneducational toys, and anything spicy.

Her character then goes on to say that "abortion is also illegal but then again so is pregnancy if you don't have a licence".

In the scene, Stallone's character is also fined 'credits' for using offensive language (more on this scene after, see if you can spot it);



Social credit score (China);


The social credit initiative calls for the establishments of unified record system for individuals, businesses and the government to be tracked and evaluated for trustworthiness. Initial reports suggest the system utilizes numerical score as the reward and punishment mechanism; recently conducted reports suggest there are in fact multiple different forms of social credit system experimenting at the same time.

Numerical system has been implemented only in several regional pilot programs, while the nationwide regulatory method has been based primarily on blacklisting and whitelisting. The credit system is closely related to China's mass surveillance systems such as Skynet, which incorporates facial recognition system, big data analysis technology, AI and Project Maven.

By 2018, some restrictions had been placed on citizens which state-owned media described as the first step toward creating a nationwide social credit system. As of November 2019, in addition to dishonest and fraudulent financial behavior, other behavior that some cities have officially listed as negative factors of credit ratings includes playing loud music or eating in rapid transits, violating traffic rules such as jaywalking and red-light violations, making reservations at restaurants or hotels but not showing up, failing to correctly sort personal waste, fraudulently using other people's public transportation ID cards, etc; on the other hand, behavior listed as positive factors of credit ratings includes donating blood, donating to charity, volunteering for community services, and so on.


Social Credit System (Wiki)

The banning of meat and dairy products (problem) for the masses;


A global shift towards a vegan diet is vital to save the world from hunger, fuel poverty and the worst impacts of climate change, a UN report said today. As the global population surges towards a predicted 9.1 billion people by 2050, western tastes for diets rich in meat and dairy products are unsustainable, says the report from United Nations Environment Programme’s (UNEP) sustainable resource management.

It says: “Impacts from agriculture are expected to increase substantially due to population growth increasing consumption of animal products. Unlike fossil fuels, it is difficult to look for alternatives: people have to eat. A substantial reduction of impacts would only be possible with a substantial worldwide diet change, away from animal products.”

Lab-Grown Meat (solution)


Memphis Meats will soon start construction on a pilot facility that will scale up production.

Memphis recently announced the end of its latest round of funding, which brought in a whopping $161 million in new investment, with contributions from Bill Gates, Richard Branson and Kimbal Musk, as well as conventional meat producers Cargill and Tyson Foods. This money will go toward building a pilot production facility that will help Memphis to grow its team, bring its innovative product to market, and hopefully reduce the cost of production, which has been astronomically high up till now.

...Company founder Uma Valeti told NPR, "People thought this was all science fiction. Everything that we've done at Memphis Meats [has] started to show that this can be done. This is real."

As a side note, in the movie the oppressed are reduced to eating rat burgers,



In this scene, a character named Edgar Friendly has this to say;



You got that right. See, according to Cocteau's plan, I'm the enemy. Cause I like to think, I like to read. I'm into freedom of speech and freedom of choice. I'm the kind if guy who wants to sit in a greasy spoon and think, "Gee, should I have the T-bone steak or the jumbo rack of barbecued ribs with the side order of gravy fries?" I want high cholesterol. I want to eat bacon, butter and buckets of cheese, okay? I want to smoke a Cuban cigar the size of Cincinnati in a non-smoking section. I wanna run through the streets naked with green Jello all over my body reading Playboy magazine.

Why? Because I suddenly might feel the need to. Okay, pal? I've seen the future, you know what it is? It's a 47-year-old virgin sittin' around in his beige pajamas, drinking a banana-broccoli shake singing "I'm an Oscar-Meyer Wiener". You wanna live on top, you gotta live Cocteau's way. What he wants, when he wants, how he wants. Your other choice: come down here, maybe starve to death.




Back to the first clip; When Stallone's character swears, a unit on the wall informs him that he's being fined 'credit' for using offensive language, then it pumps out a ticket.

By now, many of us here are familiar with the logos that pead*philes use to identify their, 'preferences';



Check this out,



They also live in a world where physical touching is discouraged, after two diseases ravaged the population.

(I've run out of characters [for the first time ever], ETA below)

Here's one article that discusses these things;

'Are we headed towards a Demolition Man future?'

After noticing so many things watching it last night, I knew that others had also noticed similarities with current events, and I wasn't wrong, there are plenty of articles and videos discussing it. I also searched ATS for threads on the topic, and while I did find some discussing it, they were from years back.

As I felt it even more relevant today, I thought I'd bring it back up.

One thing that I haven't seen mentioned anywhere, is the peado spiral on the ticketing machine.

I just thought it was all very interesting, if you've made it this far, thanks for reading.

A fine movie indeed, one that had numerous sci/fi writers with enough speculative ideas about how society might be trending. Most of it over the top though, basing the whole concept on waking people up from a cryogenic state, one that still looks like it will never come about.

My favorite part of the movie was when he wanted to go out and get something to eat. Bullock said ''yeah'' let's to to Taco Bell. He said he preferred somewhere else and she was quizzical. Turns out that the corporate restaurant wars had all been fought and Taco Bell had become the ''parent'' name for all food outlets. Imagine that, Taco Burp being the only place to eat.

The movie was set in 2032. Man, we are not far off from that hell hole.

Interesting about the pedo symbol. Definitely matches the ‘little boy lover’ logo in the chart you posted.

This doesn’t surprise me though. These sickos put their symbolisms everywhere. Especially in Hollyweird.

I for one have not been familiar with those logos. But the fact that the FBI posted those logos back in
2007 indicates that the FBI have known about those logos for at least that long. Do we suppose that pedos are so dumb that they still use the same logos to communicate online?

Nice catch!
Never noticed the pedo thing either.
Wow...

What's crazy is I was talking about Demolition Man just hours ago for being prophetic about our actual emerging future...

Amazing we synchronized.

Not only that but Taco Bell didn't even serve tacos anymore... Or any other Mex food items...

My Mum just popped-in for a brew, and when I told her about all of this, she told me about this;


'Handshakes lose their grip as conferences ban touch due to coronavirus'


...Some events have recently implemented no-handshake policies as a health measure. San Rafael software company Autodesk announced that its One Team Conference, held in Las Vegas this week, would proceed as planned. But there was a caveat: The event, which began Sunday, has a new “no touch” policy, “including no hugs and handshakes.” A seafood expo set for mid-March in Boston issued a statement recommending a “no-contact, no-handshake” policy.

Then there's these;


'Coronavirus: Premier League bans handshakes between players and match officials'


The Premier League has banned players and match officials from shaking hands from this weekend until further notice on medical advice. Teams and officials will still participate in the pre-match walk-outs but have been advised against the tradition of shaking hands.

Coronavirus: Time to Rethink the Handshake'


A handshake. A light kiss on the cheek. Rubbing noses. All are ways people greet each other in the workplace and elsewhere, depending on culture and country. But with communicable diseases such as the novel coronavirus, the flu and colds circulating, it's a good idea to shake off such practices.


[url=https://www.shrm.org/hr-today/news/hr-news/pages/coronavirus-time-to-rethink-the-handshake.aspx]Source



'New Normal: Will COVID-19 mark the death of the handshake?'


TORONTO -- The handshake has endured for millennia. It has ended wars, sealed deals that have built economies, and forged alliances that have changed the course of history.

Shaking hands is standard in almost all areas of human endeavour in western culture, including business, sports, politics, and religion.

We shake hands to say hello, goodbye and congratulations, to demonstrate respect, loyalty, trust, co-operation, and to signal our confidence and character to strangers, acquaintances, friends and even foes.

But could the handshake be a thing of the past thanks to COVID-19?

Make of it what you will, but it all seems a little uncanny (this is ATS, after all)

(ETA before posting, I can't figure out what's going on with the links, I'll keep trying to fix it, sorry)

Way back a study was done on how colors could attract peoples attention. At the top of that list of attention getters were the two combined colors of red and yellow. McDonalds capitalized on this quickly followed by Burger King and a host of others.

My 'conspiracy theory'' was that Taco Bell came along and wanted use the same ''attractive ''color scheme but because they also wanted to easily distinguish themselves from the others by adding one more color. As they were selling food stuffs attributable to '' south of the border' they added the color brown......

When Demo Man came out I was like 12 or 13 and my aunt took me and friends to get us in cuz it was rated R.

Funny enough they let me in to see Pulp Fiction without an escort at same age. Pulp is way way worse for a kid to watch, that movie traumatized me lol.

If you are Christian, you know this earth is in the hands of Demons at this point. They love playing us, they know some of the future because it is their own plans. They own Hollywood and many writers are given information it seems clear to me.

They don't have a lot of time left, they will be getting pretty busy now even compared to what we have seen.

Snipes did some marvelous acting... to my mind he assumed the look and character/mannerisms of the basketball star Dennis Rodman AKA ~The Worm~ in playing the movie role of Phoenix the Kriminal
