Doomsday2029--I'm glad to see that you're still working hard at making your case. And it's a tough challenge, as has been evidenced by MANY
posters in this thread.
My question to those who are clearly upset at what Doomsday is suggesting [and I tend to agree with him]--that Hollywood uses its medium to convey
various messages about the so-called "Illuminati"/NWO/et al--why are so many of you so emotional about this?
It goes to show just how "important" the entertainment industry has become that so many people get so worked-up that someone would dare suggest that
their precious Hollywood has an agenda, and that agenda is not the betterment of humanity.
It'd be even worse, I imagine, if someone launched criticisms against popular music [everything from Heavy Metal to Hip-Hop...chock full of
Oh, the horror! Perhaps some of you feel so offended by what's being suggested in this thread because you've chosen to in many ways define who
you are by someone else's artistic creation.
I'm certainly not suggesting that all Hollywood movies [and independents, for that matter] or all pop music is "evil." Quite frankly, "evil" is
not a label that I like to put on anything. However, the more I contemplate looking at such pervasive elements in our globalized society such
as these, setting aside whatever emotional connections I may have with any of it [from Spielberg/Kubricks' Aritificial Intelligence to the
"feel-good" anthems of mega-group Coldplay], the more it seems not only obvious but also sensible that the people who ultimately call the shots in
the entertainment industry are using these vehicles to advance their agenda.
Music, and film, to a great degree, open up the listener/viewer emotionally, and leaves one especially vulnerable to suggestion and perhaps even
flat-out "mind-control" or "brainwashing."
I look back on my younger years. Growing up in the 80's in a predominately black neighborhood, I was fortunate to be exposed the the nascent hip-hop
movement, well before the genre overwhelmed the mainstream. Hip-hop has taken a clear path from light-hearted, silly party music to the narcissistic,
violent and misogynistic statement that it so often is now. Very much indicative, IMO, of the direction our morality, as a species, has taken.
Yet some would brand me a racist for suggesting such a thing. Which, if you knew me personally, is just laughable.
In conclusion, I still wonder whether some of you can explain to yourself, let alone us, why you're so passionate in your defense of the benevolence
you assume is there in Hollywood. Doomsday2029, keep up the good work.
