Yep, that's the one I was thinking of. Agatha. I could see her face but I just couldn't get the name to come to me. And I admit I was too lazy to
look it up.
While not the most realistic of movies, yet anyway, Minority Report does pretty much serve as a perfect example of someone who is being set up and
pushed into committing a crime. And Cruise's character serves as a perfect example of someone who's being set up and pushed into something they
ordinarily wouldn't do yet ultimately makes the choice not to do it.
If you're cruel for bringing up the Darwin Awards, then I'm cruel for laughing over the stupid things people do to end up deserving one. Or winning
one, however you want to look at it.
Well, since we're on the topic of Minority Report, a friend of mine, a self-proclaimed "psychic" told me that the director, producer, and as well
Hollywood sought out "futurists"
, people who see where technology and society is heading, were consulted for this movie, and this type of
environment is exactly where they saw it heading, not necessarily with the "being set up" issues, but with "pre-crime", the modes of
transportation, the flashes of retinal scanners, the entire and complete works.
As stated previously, the movie was running in my mind while preparing this thread, but as well my own history of my particular experiences, my
thoughts on Arlington Road and Executive Action, and a host of other things in where I see our beloved
Government, Law Enforcement, and
military pushing society, against our will.
Have you ever seen the episode of X-Files called Pusher
In the series, a man calld Robert Patrick Modell, is able to "push" his thoughts onto other people, thereby influencing their actions, and while
they are exaggerating this particular methodology by Hollywood standards, this is exactly what the media can and has done in our past with respect
psychically driving us towards certain types of actions, the same can be done with individuals, as exampled by the move Arlington Road, and the same
scenario has been hypothesized to have happened to Theodore Kaczynski
, by the F.B.I.
In the book,
Societies and Psychological Warfare
, the author outlines in a small dose, of how he was driven to his actions, by usurpers of the mind, people
who wished him to commit certain actions.
Amazon Review :
From 007 to 2001, from Dealey Plaza to the Apollo Moon Flight, from the barrel of a Bulldog .44 to the corridors of the pyramids of Sirius; from the
secret symbolism of Jack the Ripper to the public symbolism of the first atomic bomb blast, this work illuminates the crimes and command ideology of
the masonic Cryptocracy, where ground zero meets the zero hour in a bestial crucible of ritual murder, human alchemy and demonic invasion.
Secret Societies and Psychological Warfare takes the reader to the core of a cosmic cryptogram, a dark Oz where the ancient fables become modern memes
for the psychological contagion and devastation of humanity, and where the stratagem the author terms "Revelation of the Method" becomes the key to
the finale of the mysteries of the ages.
Not that this is in any way making excuses for Ted Kaczynski, nor is it making a direct accusation against the F.B.I., because it pure speculation by
my part of only quoting what the author has explained, but Kaczynski had to first have already have had a mentality towards detonating bombs as well
as being inclined towards violence to begin with before he was driven, if in fact he was, towards those heinous actions which now have him locked in
I will say this though, after having read on Kaczynski, read the Pschological Warfare book, and having watched Arlington Road, if that is in fact what
he was put through it makes me understand why exactly he did what he did, and while I can understand it, I do not condone it in any way whatsoever,
but neither do I condone the actions of the people who pushed him to commit those actions, if that is in fact what they did do, because to me it
equals bullies pushing someone to an extreme where no man or woman should ever be pushed, against their will.
Back to that particular episode of X-Files, as well as the series of them focusing on Robert Patrick Modell, the creator of X-Files, utilized both the
episode, as well as his name, to demonstrate just how effective this process is, because of the actor
, who played in such hit movie as Terminator 2, Last Action Hero, and The Faculty
(my favorite is him being in the television show, The Unit), where they utilized his first and middle name, with "Robert Patrick Modell"
give you the "model"
, or "modell"
of how it works.
As for the Darwin Awards, they actually made a movie surrounding that, and I have never laughed so hard in my life, and I will provide you with a
