Elysium vs World War Z, setting the agenda and mass mind control

Ruth Hull
Activist Post

Movies and literature inspire and program the masses to love, to hate, to protect or to kill. If Dennis Kucinich made a movie, it would be Elysium, a movie which teaches that all people have the right to immigrate, to have health care and to live.

There are no illegal humans -- Dennis Kucinich



Movies do make a difference. In World War Z, genocidal slaughter of the ill and unfortunate was made acceptable and a positive goal to be applauded. In Elysium, the elitists learn there will be consequences for mistreating the sick and poor. Which message is the better one to teach our children? Which message is the better one for American leaders to get?

While our government is working on a mass mind control project, funded under DARPA, movie producers are learning that the best way to change the minds of the masses is through programming them via the big screen.

In 1987, the movie Cry Freedom, aimed at ending South African Apartheid, was released. Cry Freedom was very educational and might well have changed the course of history if racist reviewers and racist distributors in Hollywood hadn't worked to suppress the popularity of what was a great movie. However in 1989, the racists could not suppress the popularity of Mel Gibson and Danny Glover, who put terror into the hearts of South African diplomats.

The South African Government protested as audiences loudly cheered the "heroic" slaughter of onscreen South African diplomats by Martin Riggs and Roger Murtaugh. After launching their objections to Lethal Weapon 2, the South African leaders began negotiating in earnest in 1990 to end their racist system, which officially ended a couple years later. Sometimes, it takes a big screen movie to make a difference.


Think of the impact, positive or negative, of Birth of a Nation, The Day After Tomorrow, Sicko, Bowling for Columbine, Batman, and The Basketball Diaries.

Matt Damon has been making some of the most altruistic movies on the screen, teaching the strength of love and free will (The Adjustment Bureau), the power of self determination (Good Will Hunting) and the importance of standing up against a government out of control (the Bourne moves), to name a few.

Elysium portrays truths and likely consequences that the corporate news media is refusing to acknowledge. If you can't say it in the press, say it in a movie. But if the producers acknowledge what they are doing as they are making and releasing altruistic movies, the corporate media tries to change, block or hide the end result.

Elysium, teaches us that all people have the right to live and to have health care. This is another position Dennis Kucinich pushed in his universal, not-for-profit health care plan, almost the antithesis of any Republican plan and of Obamacare. Notice that health care is effective when the goal is to heal as opposed to exploit. But failure to provide health care to the masses is the coldest form of murder.

The movie shows the cruelty of corporate oppression as William Fitchner's character John Carlyle (remember the Carlyle Group) exploits and endangers the lives of his workers and coldly allows them to die from their injuries. What is the difference between this insensitivity and Monsanto's corporate greed that produces deadly products that exploit and kill massive numbers of people in the United States? Remember how nuclear meltdown pusher Barack Obama fled the country with his family for South America when the Fukushima plume hit? What makes him different from those elitists running Elysium who escape the horrors of what they created? Do you really think Obama's children eat Monsanto's produce?

The movie makes it clear that borders, themselves, are a form of oppression. When Elysium Secretary Delacourt Rhodes (Jodie Foster) orders the cold-blooded murder of illegal immigrants, what makes her any different from the Minute Men or renegade law enforcement officers shooting immigrants entering the U.S. from Mexico? Instead of a wall, they have a no-fly zone. It's interesting that those trying to immigrate speak Spanish. The similarities to the U.S. bigotry and racism against Mexican undocumented workers are very clear as is the rounding up of the immigrants by the Homeland Security forces.

Those viewers familiar with computerized election rigging are not surprised when computer tampering is expected to create a falsified regime change. Kerry really did win Ohio as the numbers later showed. Like Secretary Rhodes, George W. Bush was never elected President — not even once.

Though Damon and Director Neill Blomkamp are playing coy about the purpose of the movie, Jodie Foster is spelling it out.

Noting that the film's social message was a major draw for her, Jodie Foster stated:
The film has such a strong sociopolitical murmur, and it has such a strong insight into the ‘haves and have-nots.
Ms. Foster also has a history of selecting movies that make a difference, such as Contact and The Accused, the latter of which portrays the cruelty and injustices that rape and other abuse victims have in store for them in a sexist justice system that is aimed at nearly eliminating the rights of women and female crime victims.

On August 11th, Activist Post ran a story by Melissa Melton about the use of TV for mind control:
Thus, everyone is put into a hypnotic state that author Wes Moore says, “produces highly functional, mobile ‘bio-survival robots.’” There’s a reason he dubbed television an "opiate of the masses."
TV programs us. We tune in, drop out and stop asking questions.

Movies are much more encompassing than television shows as the audience is surrounded by the sound and the picture is bigger than life. The audience often identifies with the main character in a movie — even when the main character is a bad guy. As Brad Pitt blows up a plane and everyone on board but himself and an Israeli girl in World War Z, the audience is with him. Is this a moral thing to do? What if your child were on a plane that was destroyed by a copy-cat? As a stadium of sick people is blown up (despite the fact that the sick are no longer a threat to the healthy people) at the end of World War Z, the audience is expected to cheer the mass murder. It's sort of like cheering the bombing of Hiroshima or the destruction of a hospital or school in Afghanistan. What kind of message is society supposed to get? When was the last time 300 million people said "no" to continued war in Afghanistan? Have the morals of America been depowered by images, such as those in World War Z? Can we get our morality back?

If producers start making more movies like Elysium, perhaps society will gain the courage to stand up to our leaders and perhaps our leaders will start to fear the wrath of the people. The viewers have choices. Before our world is completely programmed into destruction of the masses, perhaps those masses ought to start watching and demanding more movies that show the kind of world we want our children to inherit.

If the author truly believes that health care is a universal right she should step boldly to the plate and hand every dime and every possession to the first government which provides it. Of course, whether said government is socialist or capitalist she will end up finding elites being insured of continued wealth and privilege.

Looks like it's time to go to the movies...

Kucinich was absolutely right. If anyone is an illegal in the United States, it is every white (as in non-Mexican) here. Most Mexicans are less illegal and are more the legitimate heirs to this land than those of us with ancestors from Europe as they at least have ancestors who were Native to this continent. So if you aren't descended from the Native Americans, pack up. or shut up as you are an illegal if there are illegals.

So much to respond to and so little space to do so...

Lets start with Kacinich.

"If Dennis Kucinich made a movie, it would be Elysium, a movie which teaches that all people have the right to immigrate, to have health care and to live."

I've only seen previews of Elysium, so I'm not entirely sure about that as well as the previews do not suggest this at all.

"There are no illegal humans -- Dennis Kucinich"

This is largely derived by the immigration issue when push comes to shove advocates a borderless or open society in which is uniformed by a supranational government or global governance to enforce. It's also interesting to note that if those of European descent particularly in the US as illegal immigrants or illegal conquerors also renders the codification of non-governmental granted/revokable privileges as natural rights, liberties, and freedoms to also be illegal and thus null and void aka piece of paper/living document that means however the leadership believes it means.

Ruth Hull, I think that you're confusing World War Z with Shaun of The Dead and Warm Bodies. You reference those infected with the Z-Virus as people who can be cured and are simply impoverished and unfortunate. Why precisely is that? Shaun of the Dead makes their zombies capable of learning mediocre work at the end but no cure. Warm Bodies uses learning and love to rekindle the life taken from the 'corpses' opposed to the 'boneies' who gave up hope and used it to exploit and keep the corpses hopes from gaining traction to increase their numbers. World War Z like both versions of Dawn of the Dead; the genetic modifying virus is incurable with the sole difference that people in the movie World War Z can simply camouflage themselves by injecting themselves with an treatable fatal disease.

"(despite the fact that the sick are no longer a threat to the healthy people)"

No, they were hardly healthy people. The Z-Virus was rendered non-threatening by injecting a treatable lethal disease to become effectively invisible to those already died and genetically modified by the Z-Virus.

Lets understand the distinctive difference between Elysium and World War Z movies. In Elysium, transhumanism/genetic modification is good, and World War Z makes it both its main villain and savior through the Z-Virus and effectively using a deadly but treatable disease to make it camouflaged from the Z-Virus and its hosts who individually collectively feed/attack non-infected like a parasite who infects a mouse alters its brain chemistry and then seeks out a cat to be eaten to reproduce.

In Elysium based on the previews for universal healthcare for diseases based largely on diet and vaccines are curable and etc located at an Agenda 21 approved settlement in which people yearn to join in space, which inevitably requires modified seeds to grow en-mass in space

In World War Z, the Agenda 21 sustainable development approved 'safe zones' to successfully survive while also taking vaccines designed to camouflage humanity from Z-Virus carriers with life threatening and fatal treatable disease like GMOs being cancerous and various vaccines that are harmful to human development and health.

In both movies, the overall agenda being glorified is Agenda 21 and sustainable development with WWZ adding the good of even disease injected vaccines into people.
The principle distinctive difference rests with Elysium's genetic modification is predominantly heroic and a sustainable settlement with inevitable unconventional foods realistically being yearned for by the populace opposed to being the villain in World War Z but vaccines and sustainable developmental settlements being good.

One more thing, one of the reasons why in most zombie genre movies end with the human characters perishing rests upon the desire and interest of genetic modification devouring and driving non-modified people into extinction. After all, the agenda and its protagonists view such as inevitable progressive and resistance futile.

In "World War Z," those bitten, got infected and started acting weird with the zombie virus. After Pitt came up with a cure (the Bird Flu), and was no longer in danger from those infected, they rounded up the sick into a stadium and blew it up. It was reminiscent of the Nazi's treatment of the Jews. And then there was the plane sequence wherein Pitt blew up the plane and everyone on board, both infected and likely to be infected, except for himself and the girl. They lived like the elitists they were. Then there was the wall, reminiscent of the way the Israelis are treating the Palestinians. It was a movie by elitists for elitists. Pitt seems less selective with respect to his movies. Wonder what he would say if they asked him to be in a remake of "Birth of a Nation."

Until people the world over understand that we are ALL of the Human Race, instead of voluntarily segregating ourselves thru skin color, gender, religion, creed, ethnicity, political affiliation, economic status, we will NEVER know Peace on Earth. Until people quit buying into all of the issues that serve to divide us, we will NEVER know equality in this world. Until people embrace their brother, their sister, their fellow humankind with blinders, we will always have war, strife, chaos, trauma, violence. Until we all understand our ONENESS, our CONNECTEDNESS to one another, we will never get along. We will always look at everything in this world as ours, and not theirs. We will always look at one another as being inferior or superior, better or worse than one another, we will never see each other as equals. Until then, we will continue to suffer at each others misguided, bloody hands.

Is this what we really want? If not, we have the power to change all of this mess. "Be the change you wish to see in the world" - M. Gandhi

Our country, the USA was founded for a moral and religious people. Our Republic has a Constitution and Bill of Rights. Because of the perfection in the words, many believe it was divinely inspired. This should be our guide and not to mix in Socialism or Communism, etc.

@midnightwriter / God save us from the Constitutional Cultists. Living men and women have unalienable rights not constitutional ones. We are not a party to the constitution unless we or someone in our direct bloodline signed it (doubtful). The Constitution is a mind-trap like a lot of other things and it authorized the criminal government that we struggle against today.

New mainstream movies (lets not call them "films") are not worth watching and not worth writing about. We all know who watches these movies and how they think about things (whatever the govt/media wants them to think). It's not likely to change any time soon.

"If producers start making more movies like Elysium, perhaps society will gain the courage to stand up to our leaders and perhaps our leaders will start to fear the wrath of the people. "

That's about the most ridiculous idea I've heard. Did "1984" stop universal surveillance by a terrorist government? Did "Platoon" make Americans begin to care about US terrorist campaigns all over the world? Did "The Great Lebowski" make people want to study Philosophy? Of. Course. Not. Movies do not create social movements. PAIN does. As a few cynical Russians used to say "the worse things are, the better they are". Which means that as conditions within a failing empire continue to decline, you are getting closer to the end. That which is not sustainable will not endure (by definition). The US gets closer to that event horizon every day.

Are you serious? It's a goddamn movie about zombies...... You're seriously expressing remorse at eradicating a legitimate threat to the survival of the human race, regardless of race/nationality/religion? The zombies are not some undesirables, they are human beings who were infected with a virus, the virus kills its host and then reanimates it with the sole purpose of spreading the virus as much as possible. Maybe I saw a different movie, but they weren't using "bird flu", nor the H1N1 vaccine, it was a modified strain of meningitis that was being used as camouflage, and they were hardly no longer threatened by the zombies, they just happened to be able to mount an actual defense against them by infecting themselves with a deadly bacterial infection, the zombies were still very dangerous, and in no way were suddenly productive members of society... I don't know if you noticed during the movie, but they were not living people... On more than one occasion they showed zombies that were very much DEAD as human beings, but were still alive, due to being.....zombies...

I'm as politically aware as the next guy, but you're an idiot, as is most of the people commenting on this article, it's a goddamn zombie movie, there is no hidden agenda, people enjoy zombie movies/games because they're fun.
