The Refining Potential of Suffering

Today’s post is a special guest post by all deeps

The existence of a saintly soul stems first and foremost from the grace of God and secondly, not unlike a diamond,
from sustained pressure over time. Without pressure, prosecution, and suffering we either become self righteous like the Pharisees, spiritual warriors bragging about our strength without ever seeing combat, or fall into the dissolute living of Herod’s court, throwing a fit when our steak is overdone and ignoring God in favor of Netflix binges and air conditioning. The critique that Christianity makes one weak has nothing to do with Christ’s teachings or the martyrs of the Bible and everything to do with the compromises Christians have made by and large with secular society.

The progressive narrative is that things should always be getting incrementally easier, the utilitarian maxim that we must strive towards the greatest pleasure and be spared the greatest pains. If Christians want to make the case for easing the burden of others in terms of their basic needs, this is Biblically sound. But when we ourselves remain in comfort while others suffer and when our creature comforts infringe on the time and abilities that God has given us we are in serious spiritual peril. Consider for a moment 1 Peter 4:1-4:4-

Forasmuch then as Christ hath suffered for us in the flesh, arm yourselves likewise with the same mind: for he that hath suffered in the flesh hath ceased from sin;

That he no longer should live the rest of his time in the flesh to the lusts of men, but to the will of God.

For the time past of our life may suffice us to have wrought the will of the Gentiles, when we walked in lasciviousness, lusts, excess of wine, revellings, banquetings, and abominable idolatries

The book goes on to extol the virtue of perfect charity before telling us in verse sixteen that “if any man suffer as a Christian, let him not be ashamed; but let him glorify God on this behalf”. The position of progressivism is that all suffering is bad (in practice, that all suffering for those who will not do away with tradition is bad). The position of Christ is that Christian suffering is divine. We should not be praying to God to make our lives easier but rather begging Him for the trails needed to purify ourselves and become closer in faith and action to Christ. When we lose in the eyes of the world we win in the eyes of God.

We have reached a time where in western societies Biblical principles are becoming taboo, where Christians can expect hostility for preaching the message of Christ. This is fantastic news, and we should praise God for it. Too long have Christians sat on the fence, straddling the comforts of the world on the one side and the Word of God and the Heavenly realms on the other. Reconciliation is no longer possible; watering down the Gospel in order to appease modernity is no longer palatable. As 2 Timothy 3:12 tells us “all that will live Godly in Christ shall suffer prosecution”. Yes, the world is getting worse but do not despair. Our generation is being offered a great chance to suffer for the glorification of God. Our congregations may not number as high as our forefathers, but the depth of faith our trials will afford us are worthy of our tearful praise. God Bless.

Max & John C Wright Maryphobia and How It Hurts Christianity

Despite what you may believe, the vast majority of Non-Catholic Christians have the same or nearly the same view of the Virgin Mary. A minority of Protestants—and not even all Protestants—have at least a confusion, if not hostility, to the Mother of Jesus-Who-Is-God, the Queen in the line of David to the King who is Jesus. We contend that hostility towards the Virgin Mary is one of the main issues dividing Christians—and urge other Christians, as well as non-Christians even, to try to at least appreciate what we see and understand what the Saints, and the Queen of the Saints, are all about, to those who love them.

Godzilla King of the Monsters: A Review

If you love Classic Japanese Monsters and Monster Battles then you are in for a world of chaotic wonder.

As someone who watched the original 1964 “Mothra vs Godzilla” and “Ghidorah the Three Headed Monster,” the new “Godzilla King of the Monsters” is a MAJOR recommendation. (Be warned there will be some spoilers in this review.)

My top three Kaiju (Japanese for Strange Beast or in English layman’s terms Giant Japanese Monsters) are King Ghidorah, Mothra and the titular Godzilla. As someone who really likes the aforementioned monsters,  Legendary Pictures did a brilliant job portraying these creatures, not only in sound and creature design by making iconic the cries/roars sound like they came from an actual beast and giving the Kaiju designs a more realistic look but also referencing the original designs from their debut films. However where they really shined was in the music, in the characterizations and in the thematic elements.

King Ghidorah is a powerful and menacing beast and considered to be a creature that meant the destruction of civilization. Being not of this world, just as he was in his debut film “Ghidorah the Three Headed Monster” where he had come as a meteorite to do unto earth what he had done to the Venusian civilization, although here it was stated through exposition that he was an extraterrestrial invasive species instead of being shown he was. Another thing I noticed about him is in the aforementioned film his three heads possessed only linear thought. However in “Godzilla King of the Monsters” while his heads are unified as an apex predator they each have a subtle unique personality, especially with one of the head’s liking to proverbially and literally play with its food with the central head acting the one in charge. Adding to his symbolism as a Devil-like destroyer figure is not only in the iconic imagery of him rising out of a volcano with golden wings outstretched before a red darkening sky before a cross in the foreground, but also in his musical theme. In King Ghidorah’s theme they had Japanese Buddhist Heart Sutra (prayer) chants within the theme (a Catholic/Christian equivalent would be the Kyrie Eleison) in which the sutra/prayer is requesting mercy from the devine, in a sense a request of salvation to the divine as who wouldn’t call on the Divine in the face of absolute evil, considering the destroyer King Ghidorah was called in promotional material for the film “the Devil {who} has three heads” which adds more to his symbolism as a Judeo-Christian Devil-like figure. To quote from the Book of Revelation: “They have a King over them, the angel of the Abyss. A star fallen from Heaven to Earth, he opened the shaft of the bottomless pit, and from the shaft rose smoke like that of a great furnace, and the sun and the air were darkened.”

My favorite, Mothra, is beautifully portrayed as a benevolent yet powerful guardian. In her debut film in 1961 she was a goddess attempting to rescue her fairy priestesses and was the guardian of Infant Island. This is showcased in “Godzilla King of the Monsters” when faced with hostile humans in her larval state she doesn’t physically harm them. Rather she immobilizes them and when she completes her metamorphosis, she appears before the humans making them realize their one chance of combating Ghidorah is before them, giving them hope. This is also portrayed in her musical theme too. The composer, Bear McCreary (who also composed the music for God of War 4), didn’t have to do this but he utilized a Chinese style orchestration combined with tribal drums to the original theme of Mothra from 1961. In the original film the song is sung by her priestesses to summon her which gave them hope of rescue whereas in “Godzilla King of the Monsters” her song (although without lyrics the tune is exactly the same) is played when she awakens from her cocoon in an iconic reveal of her wings from a waterfall, giving humanity hope. (Personal note I did start slightly tearing up when I heard her song in this moment.) In my opinion on this portrayal, the moth goddess has earned her place as the Queen of the Monsters.

As for the big beast himself the titular character Godzilla is amazingly portrayed. As a callback to his first appearance in 1954, he was awakened due to nuclear testing and is powered by nuclear energy. He is neither good or evil like in previous 1950-1960’s films. His original creation was in response to nuclear weaponry as the Japanese were the first and only country to suffer from the effects of the atomic blast. Like the Bhagaved Gita used by J. Robert Oppenheimer: “Now I have become Death, the Destroyer of Worlds,” Godzilla has caused damage to humans (especially with the main human characters and the real villain of the film) but he is willing to work alongside them to combat the greatest threat to his world; the extraterrestrial golden dragon of destruction King Ghidorah. The foreshadowing of their battle was found in the Legendary film “Kong: Skull Island” in the ending montage that showcased Godzilla’s seeming eternal battle with the golden beast and this film pays off in not only near deaths and defeats against his nemesis, the false King, but Godzilla proves himself to be the true King of the Monsters as he obliterates the usurper. Not only did they make a realistic portrayal of his classical roar but they also created an amazing orchestral version (complete with a regal Babylonian chanting when arriving to his “temple” under the sea to revitalize him along with the iconic Japanese chant of “Gojira”) of his original theme from 1954. In my opinion, Godzilla was meant to be portrayed as a god-like King who can be both malevolent and benevolent and in the film that bears his name and title… this was an amazing portrayal of such an iconic character.

I could go on a long while about what callbacks the film has made. However I will limit myself to mentioning how the film made respectable nods to the Japanese for giving us memorable beloved monsters along with giving an end credit memorial to the actors who played the original Godzilla at the end of the film.

There were however some minor complaints on my end. The story is indeed a thin story; however, the visuals and characterization of the monsters make up for that in my opinion. It’s a common complaint I myself have made about the monster films from the 1950’s-1960’s era. Another complaint would be a scene where a prized piece of tech is left out with no security especially when its shown the character who stole it was questioning the individuals who co-opted the tech. Along with that the individual who was built up to be the major human antagonist, Alan Jonah, barely had any screen time and was shown to be a bit of a stereotypical villain. But I did enjoy how he was acted as he was played by Charles Dance who played Tywin Lannister in Game of Thrones. He has a Christopher Lee level charm to him.

As for the other human characters, my favorites had to be Doctor Ishiro Serizawa by Ken Watanabe who’s character arc comes to a completion from the 2014 film “Godzilla” in a wonderful way. Doctor Chen and Doctor Ling-Chen played by Ziyi Zhang (both of whom played the Chairman and Sayuri respectively in the film Memoirs of a Geisha) act as spiritual stands in for Mothra’s priestesses from the original 1961 Mothra film as they’re twins from Infant Island who focus on the mythology behind the Titans and one of them is present upon Mothra’s awakening. Finally there’s Doctor Mark Russell (played by Kyle Chandler who played Bruce Baxter in the 2005 edition of King Kong) who goes through the character arc of a man who hates Godzilla after the death of his son in San Francisco in 2014 to realizing if the world is to be saved from King Ghidorah, he has  to put aside his hatred of Godzilla to save the world from a greater threat; so not only does he have to face his demons (in the form of Godzilla) but also make peace with them. I liked how these characters were handled and portrayed in the film and I like the respectable self sacrifice one character made for Godzilla.

Along with the human characters we get to see some philosophical questions raised by the film: can humanity co-exist with the Titans? Each faction in the film portrays a different answer to this question. With Jonah’s forces and the actual villain (who were pointed out to be in the wrong, along with committing horrible acts towards humanity and pointed out to be more of a monster than the other Titans), they believe humanity is a “disease to be eradicated” from the planet and humans must be destroyed for the sake of the planet and have the Titans become once again the true owners of the globe. (Personal note: as a Conservative I couldn’t help but be reminded of the extremist Left as the villain’s ideology is along the lines of the Far Left’s in the belief that all white people are inherently racist and must die out because of so called “inherent oppressors.” In my opinion this suicidal ideology is along the lines of Jonah’s eco-terrorist group and is just as dangerous as the aforementioned belief and I’m glad the film actually called out this line of thinking as not only dangerous but monstrous.) Then there’s the US government who believe if human life is to be protected the Titans must be wiped out for the sake of humanity’s protection and this extremism ends up almost destroying the world in the form of the iconic Oxygen Destroyer a weapon more dangerous than a plutonium based atomic bomb. Finally there’s the middle ground which is presented by Monarch who believe in coexistence with the Titans and is embodied by Doctor Serizawa in his character arc, idealized by Doctor Chen (who has generationally worked with Monarch researching the Titans) and realized by Doctor Russell.

If I were to rate the film I would give this film four stars out of five. If you are a fan of classic Japanese Monster films and want to see epic fights between iconic Kaiju you are in for a chaotic world of wonder. If you’re there for the story it is as thin as previous Japanese monster films. Verdict: this singing vampire diva gives this film two thumbs way up and a standing ovation just for the music alone.

Tough Red Pills To Swallow: We Need To Lose The Term “Conspiracy Theory”

Click here to discuss this article!

I used to call myself a “Skeptic” and I used to snort at “Conspiracy Theorists.” But revelations over the last 10 years or so from the US CIA have proven to me, and many others, that the term “Conspiracy Theory” is merely a term used to stop critical thinking and analysis–and that many things once mocked as “tinfoil hat conspiracy theories” were either partially or entirely true.

public domain MK ultra screen shot
Declassified reports like this have shown countless “conspiracy theories” are true.

Don’t believe me? Let’s have a few examples you can verify on US government web sites and mainstream sources:

Operation Paperclip: After World War II, a clandestine plan was launched by the US CIA to identify thousands of Nazis and their family members who were scientists who might be useful to the United States. Many of these Nazis were hideous war criminals, including people who had done human experimentation in the camps, human experimentation in mass media and mass hypnosis, experimenting on children and on adults who didn’t even know they were being experimented upon, and more. These Nazis were given cleansed backgrounds and placed in prominent positions in universities, corporations, and various government agencies, all under CIA direction, and often continued their work. Including highly questionable research on things like climate control, artificial intelligence, mass media indoctrination/propaganda, use of torture, and use of mind-altering drugs. Most of them died as respected members of the community. Read about Operation Paperclip on CIA’s web site.  And if you’re having trouble believing it and want someone to listen to, see CIA-approved writer Annie Jacobsen and Joe Rogan discuss Operation Paperclip. And if you doubt Annie Jacobsen is approved by the CIA, see this writeup on CIA’s web site on Annie Jacobsen.

Summary: The US government really did sneak in tons of Nazi scientists, who worked on secret projects for decades for the CIA and other US government agencies. This “Conspiracy Theory” is true.

Operation Mongoose and Operation Northwoods: You can verify the existence of these comprehensive programs in a document called “The Cuba Project” on the NSA’s web site. While Wikipedia links are often unreliable, the basic wikipedia pages on Operation Northwoods and Operation Mongoose have most of the salient details. The short story? This was a years-long plan among multiple US government agencies to stage a phony attack by Cubans against Americans–in other words, a False Flag attack where US forces would pretend to be Cubans, and create a pretext for war. Plans included having American-controlled “Cubans” attack the US base in Cuba, and also to very possibly sink ships full of US military and/or civilians, in order to justify a desired invasion of Cuba.  Notably, much of the Northwoods and Mongoose activity occurred after the Bay of Pigs fiasco–meaning that even though President Kennedy had halted one planned attempt to invade Cuba, the US military and intelligence establishments continued plans to launch a fake attack from Cuba in order to justify a US military invasion. The plans were never enacted, but the government was fully ready to do it.

Summary: The US government can and will plan and execute “False Flag” operations to lie to the American public and create pretexts for invasion and wars of aggression. Add to this what we know now that the Spanish-American War and the Vietnam War and World War I were both entered into by United States by False-flag operations, there’s no good reason to think they ever stopped.

MK Ultra – Brainwashing, Mass Hypnosis, Trauma-based Mind Control, and “Sleeper” agents are all real. Thanks to Freedom of Information Act requests, you can go to the CIA’s own web site and verify that MK Ultra was quite real. MK Ultra included programs to develop mind-altering drugs, and to do human experiments, often on subjects that did not know they were being experimented upon. Including children. This, often with the help, cooperation, or even direction of some of the Nazi scientists we mentioned about regarding Operation Paperclip.

While some of the Nazi scientists were only of questionable character, such as NASA’s Werner Von Braun (the famous rocket scientist was an actual SS officer, not a mere scientist)  while others were directly involved in heinous human experimentation. MK Ultra got created with some of these evil Nazis along with native Americans, Canadians, and others.  You can read a summary of MK Ultra from You can view a Listverse list of famous MK Ultra victims. You can read about occultist ties and specific Nazi scientists and the related Project Monarch at bibliotecapleyades.

Summary: That stuff you read about the government creating “sleeper agents,” and experimenting both on individuals and the general public unawares, developing drugs like LSD and releasing them into the population, and more? Turns out, this conspiracy theory is true.

Area 51 and the alleged aliens: Once again, according to US government-approved journalist Annie Jacobsen, in her book Area 51: An Uncensored History of America’s Top Secret Military  she reveals that quite a few classified operations occurred there involving experimental aircraft, but no actual aliens. According to Jacobsen and other reports, the “aliens” encountered at Roswell were in fact children who were experimented upon by Nazi scientist Joseph Mengele (who had allegedly gone to the Soviets instead of the USA), using surgery and drugs to mutilate their development and make them look like aliens, and put them in a fake “spacecraft” in order to panic Americans.

Many sources question Jacobsen’s claim. Given that Jacobsen is routinely featured in mainstream media sources and is accepted at respectable talks in Silicon Valley, what we can take from Jacobsen’s work what she says is at least government-approved. Regardless, there really was a major incident at Roswell, and other “UFO” related sites. Annie and her crew insist there were no actual aliens. Others call this into question, saying the government is lying straight up about this and that there was real alien contact, such as former Canadian defense minister Paul Hellyer, who notes many generals and other US and Canadian officials who believe there were real aliens, and say they can document it.

Summary: Real and serious things went on at Area 51 and related UFO sites. It remains unclear how forthcoming they are about this subject, or what the exact truth of alien encounters are. But it’s no longer dumb to be interested in this subject.

Stargate Project: From and other government sources, you can verify that Russell Targ did indeed run psychic programs for the CIA.  Furthermore, from the related US Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) you can see declassified documentation on Project Sun Streak, a program involving Targ and others to do extensive intelligence work using psychics–and while “skeptics” have claimed pure luck, in his own book Targ documents extensively how it is scientifically impossible to dismiss many of their results. (For an eye-opening video, see Russell Targ’s banned TED Talk, BTW.)

If you want a “mainstream” source you can listen to CIA-approved Annie Jacobsen’s talk on her book on CIA psychics. While some of those around the CIA still like to claim that the program produced nothing of value, anyone looking at the testiomony, or reading Russell Targ’s book, knows that’s not true.

Despite films and articles telling you nothing useful ever came out of US government use of psychics, in reality they ran very sophisticated psychic operations for decades, which produced considerable intelligence that was useful, which is mighty “lucky.” Then, according to Russell Targ, who pioneered much of it, they brought in a large group of military officers for him to train—then terminated his program, and publicly announced the government had found nothing useful and had no more use for such programs or such research. After he had just trained a bunch of career officers on all his techniques. So, do you believe they actually terminated these programs?

Summary: This conspiracy theory is true, to the extent that large #s of intelligent observers believe they showed real psychic effects, with some doubters.

Operation Mockingbird was the program to propagandize the American public through placing CIA operatives in major newspapers and magazines and broadcast media. Working with companies such as the New York Times, Time/Life publications, Newsweek, and major news networks, the CIA had telephone wire taps and paid agents working as reporters in news rooms–literally thousands of them. These included famous people like Bob Woodward, who helped take down President Nixon, as well as countless non-famous ones. A lengthy document known as the “Family Jewels” from the CIA web site.

Although CIA and other sources say Mockingbird ended decades ago, there is no good reason we can see to believe this. It used to be completely illegal for the CIA to do any of this, yet they were doing anyway, as these documents show. And, it turns out, not too many years ago Congress went ahead and made it legal for the CIA to use propaganda against Americans.

By the way, at the behest of J. Edgar Hoover and others, the CIA invented the term “Conspiracy Theory” and spread it through the media in order to mock and demotivate anyone who questioned the official story on the assassination of President Kennedy–or anything else.

Summary: The CIA has been propagandizing the American public, as well as foreign audiences, for decades, often violating the law to do it—although today’s CIA is allowed to do it legally.

Conclusion: With all these conspiracy theories turning out to have very substantial realities underlying them, why does anyone trust anything at all they’re reading in the news, including mainstream political commentary?

It should be noted, these are not the only proven conspiracy theories. These are just the ones you can just go check right now on mostly government and mainstream sites.

A really good summary of much of this by Really Graceful:

This is not to say there are no dumb conspiracy theories, or conspiracy theories that are wrong. But the next time you hear someone say something that sounds strange, and you are tempted to call them a “conspiracy theorist,” you might want to remember: the term “Conspiracy Theory” was itself a conspiracy–invented to stop thought and stop discussion.


The weaponization of Netflix

Netflix continues to act as a propaganda and social engineering outlet for the left to fuel hatred against anybody who might lean towards opinions that might be considered “conservative,” having to do with criticizing feminism, supporting men’s health and men’s issues, criticizing the role of Islam in western countries, and criticizing socialism and cultural Marxism, including all of the associated degeneracy that accompanies it.

Recently, I saw a meme posted online showing a general breakdown of how Netflix is a form of social engineering, as opposed to a mere form of entertainment.

It listed seven various archetypal and stereotypical examples relating to racial biases, homosexuality, the role of mothers and fathers, and children. At least a few of these examples were also recently pointed out in a video on Black Pilled’s YouTube channel, which I found quite accurate and profoundly unsettling.

For about the last few years, I’ve been noticing similar patterns. And there are certain productions in particular that seemed to stand out more than others.

Follow This, Part 1, Episode 4: Men’s Rights

The first production highlighted is an episode of Follow This, the Netflix collaborative series with Buzzfeed. The episode is about men’s rights, and features author Scaachi Koul.

As an obvious propagandistic tool for spreading fear about the group of men known as “incels,” in the first fifteen minutes of the documentary, Koul brings up the van attack that took place earlier this year, on April 23rd.

Of course, she mentioned nothing about how the school where the attacker attended was connected

She also reached out to Paul Elam on Twitter, who apparently replied by commenting, “Eat shit, and die.”

So, she instead interviewed Karen Straughan, and was apparently left with a feeling of dissatisfaction after the interview.

She also interviewed Paige Flink, who works at the Family Place, one of two male domestic violence shelters in the United States. And she interviewed one of the survivors.

She basically concludes that many of the issues MRAs focus on are legitimate, but they “blame women.” Of course, this is clearly not the case, since feminism doesn’t represent all women, and all women are certainly not feminists.

I am not necessarily in agreement with many of the views Straughan and Elam support, and I do not speak for MRAs. But it seems to me that many MRAs don’t outright blame feminists, as much as they criticize feminist ideology, itself. And I would say that is a big difference overlooked (and probably intentionally) by mainstream and corporate media outlets, both in this instance and in many others.

And I think one of the main reasons for this is that if they did not brush it aside they would have to confront the damage caused to men and families as a result of the ideology and the policies stemming from it that their corporate backers also help to legislate.

July 22

Moving on to the next production, is the recent Netflix release, 22 July, a portrayal of the terror attack that took place on the Norwegian island of Utøya, on the 22nd of July, 2011.

The attack was carried out by Anders Breivek, who changed his name to Fjotolf Hansen in June, 2017. Breivek was imprisoned immediately after the attack was charged three days later in violation of paragraph 147a of Norway’s criminal code, “destabilizing or destroying basic functions of society,” and “creating serious fear in the population.”

He was officially indicted in March of 2012, sentenced to 21 years, and remains imprisoned today at the Ila Prison, outside Oslo. His political views were emphasized in the film, which include his opposition to Islam, Cultural Marxism and feminism.

He carried out the heinous attack on a summer camp, with children who were from Palestine. There were a total of 77 casualties. The island itself where the attack occurred is also owned by the same group that ran the summer camp, the Workers’ Youth League.

The organization trains members of the younger generation for future leadership positions, and shares affiliations with Norway’s Labor Party, Young European Socialists, and the International Union of Socialist Youth.

At the time of the attack Norway’s Labor Party was led by a man, named Jens Stoltenberg. Then the 27th Prime Minister of Norway and now serving as the 13th Secretary General of NATO, a description on his Wikipedia page describes his religious views as non-denominational, after having been “…portrayed as a staunch atheist for most of his life.”

As former Stratfor chairman George Friedman noted in his book, Flashpoints: The Emerging Crisis in Europe, NATO has the same basic goals of European domination and nationalism the Nazis sought to achieve, but without the violence.

Norway’s Labor Party, in turn, shares affiliations with both the Party of European Socialists and the Progressive Alliance.

So, it’s clear the institutions running the summer camp in Oslo are indeed connected to a larger socialist agenda extending across most European countires. And feminism is indeed also part of that agenda.

Though Breivek’s actions were clearly horrendous, the film did not clearly portray how, for example, the very same conditions that stem from socialist and feminist policy-making may actually lead to the kind of struggles Breivek dealt with throughout his youth that brought him to commit the acts of violence carried out that day.

His early childhood is highlighted in an article published on Norway’s TV 2’s website:

“In 1983 and 1984, some of Norway’s top specialist child psychologists wanted to forcibly remove Anders Behring Breivik from his mother’s care.

A psychologist at the National Centre for Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, Stations Senter for Barne-og Ungdomspyskiatri (the SSBU), Norway’s leading body for child and adolescent psychiatry who in the 1980s observed the interaction between Anders and his mother, was queried by police in the wake of the terrorist attacks of 22 July 2011.

The psychologist fiercely criticized the Barnevernet, Norway’s state Child Welfare Service, for stopping the care order.”

The article also cites a 1983 report:

“Anders is a victim of his mother’s projections of paranoid-aggressive and sexual fears toward men in general,” and “she projects onto him her own primitive, aggressive and sexual fantasies; all the qualities in men that she regards as dangerous and aggressive.”

These last quotes cited from the report also happen to describe in a nutshell one of the main elements of feminist theory and policies. As an example, patriarchy theory ultimately demonizes oppression which is inherently masculine in nature, while making all women into victims of this oppression, in the form of rape culture.

So, according to feminist theory, all men should be feared as potential rapists. Similarly and eerily this may also encompass those dangerous and and aggressive qualities described in the 1983 report about the projections of Breivik’s mother onto him.

In this sense, Breivik also has much in common with what have come to be known as incels. In fact, some have also brought into question as to whether or not feminism and progressivism actually helped to create incels. I wonder if Netflix would ever produce an honest and unbiassed documentary exploring this whole issue?

Santa Clarita Diet, Season 3, Episode 4: More of a Cat Person

Santa Clarita Diet is a popular zombie-themed comedy-horror series on Netflix, starring Drew Barrymore and Timothy Olyphant. It is centered around the idea of the undead living amongst the population of the largely upscale city of Santa Clarita, in Southern California’s LA County.

Barrymore and Olyphant star as a couple, with Barrymore playing the central role of a the undead wife. There are also a number of sub-plots involving other characters, including their daughter, who is played by Australian actress Live Hewson.

Barrymore’s character experiences moral dilemmas involving who she will choose for a meal, and decides to go after people who committed heinous acts of some kind, including known Nazis living in the area.

In the fourth episode of the third (and thankfully final) season of the series she ends up luring a man who is a men’s rights activist to a fake men’s rights meeting, with the apparent intention of conflating men’s rights supporters with Nazis.

I thought this reddit post on the episode, by u/Omnica articulated the propagandistic elements of the episode very well:

‘This is an awesome, and hilarious show. Just watching the new season, up to episode 4. In the episode one of the “victims” they are going to kill for food, is lured into a kill room, by inviting him to a Men’s Rights Meeting. They make out the group as if it’s full of misogynistic, domestic abusers, that all have restraining orders. This is just a ridiculous example of how mens issues are being portrayed by the main stream. It can be really disappointing that people will actually watch this episode, and believe that is an accurate portrayal of what the Men’s Rights Movement is about and the kind of people that are in this movement.’ 

The fear-mongering propagandistic elements of Netflix features seem even more blatantly obvious taking into consideration the co-founder and CEO of Netflix, Reed Hastings, also sat on the Facebook’s board of directors until May of 2019. And, despite many of Facebook’s arguable benefits, it still supports a larger technocratic agenda, in part through the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative. And it supports the initiatives of many organizations that are also clearly at odds with many conservative values.

Furthermore, Reed’s bio on Wikipedia also states that he was a member of the California State Board of Education. So, not only does Hastings own a company that influences the public opinion of hundreds of millions of subscribers worldwide, but he is also one of the people making decisions regarding how the minds of future generations will be shaped.

Netflix tactics aren’t necessarily new and are used by many other and Holllywood-linked media outlets for the purposes of othering those who don’t fit into the narrative they support. And that tactic is based in faulty generalization, and the inductive fallacy.

They will use the example of one or a few individuals who have committed some extreme act(s) of violence or crime against humanity, who also happen to share some similar opinions as a much larger group of people.

And they will do this to associate those actions with the wider group of people in an attempt to demonize that group merely for sharing similar opinions. It is a hugely manipulative and dishonest form of weaponized propaganda that I hope people stop buying into.

The future will indeed be very bleak if people do not grasp logos and learn how to see through this propaganda that seems to be designed in assisting the destruction of traditional religious values on a global scale.
