How to Boil a Frog

Today, I want to talk about social conditioning, because no one else seems to. For those who are unclear, social conditioning is the “sociological process of training individuals in a society to act or respond in a manner generally approved by the society in general and peer groups within society”. Now, if you haven’t been living under a rock, you should know by now that the world isn’t run by a collective of democracies and peace agencies, but rather a minuscule percent of the population belonging to a private circle whose founders have passed on a very carefully devised agenda for civilization. As part of the scheduled agenda, this enlightened few has targeted each of society’s most influential avenues for molding the way the rest us act, dress, talk, live, and think through a virtually unnoticed taming of our sensory receptors. Monkey see, monkey do.

Music and film are today’s most cunning and powerful forms of mind control, because it doesn’t force us to become mindless zombies, but rather convinces us to choose as such. Knowing that the people who run this world have turned cinema into one of the their greatest outlets for social conditioning, it made me curious to wonder if it was possible to roughly predict future events simply by noticing patterns and trends that arise in films. For instance, if these “private groups”, the ones that own Hollywood, knew about a catastrophic event that was about to forever change the way we look at the world, they probably would have already started mentally preparing us for it so that they would have complete control over the situation. Think about it. Of all the movies that have come out in the past couple of years, and all the movies that have yet to be released, haven’t you noticed one or two patterns that have arisen? And doesn’t it seem strange that none of these filmmakers are doing anything extremely original anymore, as if everything has to fit into a fixed formula? Most films are just stupid comedies, romances, feel-good family films, and all that other brain mush that conditions you to feel all warm and relaxed about your life. But, you’ll notice a definite trend if you look at films like Batman, Spider-man, Superman, Iron man, X-men, Watchmen, Captain America, The Green Lantern, Kick-Ass… God forbid if I have to continue the list. Let’s not be naïve and think for a second that this whole super hero franchise isn’t part of a major message that is subconsciously being implanted into our heads. At the core essence of it all, movies like these are, for whatever reason, raising us to believe that ordinary men can be extraordinary. Maybe the trend here is telling us that a super hero of sorts is going to rise up in the near future, otherwise, why would there be so many movies advocating this message? You may also find trends about ‘vampires’, as in Underworld, Fright Night and the Twilight saga, as well as ‘zombies’, as in movies like 28 Days Later, Dawn of the Dead, and Zombieland. The thought of vampires and zombies becoming a reality may seem silly to most, but if you think about the core message that’s being instituted into the public’s mind through these films, you might not laugh so hard.

As I was saying, I believe that all these things condition us for the time being, but what if they had also been secretly preparing us for something that had yet to happen? I look at films like Skyline, Transformers, Cowboys and Aliens, Super 8, District 9, Battle LA, Cloverfield, The Darkest Hour, and I see a trend that begins to truly frighten me, because none of these films seem to contribute anything significant to the shaping of society’s mindset. So, the only question remains, “what’s the purpose behind it?” Personally, I don’t want to know. I don’t believe in aliens, but I do believe in evil, and when I see films like these being released, even ones with titles as simple as, “Abduction”, “Contagion”, or “Resistance”, I get chills down my spine.

This trend is clearly setting the world up for some kind of major event, which is bound to, as happens in all of these films, turn life as we know it upside-down. You can take special notice of this in Battle LA, District 9, and Cloverfield, where that raw and gritty handheld camera style you see so much now days makes a previously fantastical-seeming scenario seem perfectly realistic, as if it were the kind of thing that could happen on any regular day. Some of the common themes here are the fight for humanity, the public be strewn in catastrophe, and of course, broadening our perceptions of existence. “Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close” is the title of a new movie being released next year. For now, it will look like an innocent film commemorating the events of 9/11 in a sweet story about a son and his father, but based on its title alone, I’m guessing it will soon have more significance than we had originally thought. And, as if that wasn’t enough, this eerie government commercial was released for no apparent reason whatsoever…

What exactly are they preparing us for?

I have my own conclusions that I’m not going to announce, which is why I’m trying to maintain an objective standpoint on this one, but I’ve left the dots here for you to connect on your own. Remember, only fools believe in coincidences. It’s like how when you watch a movie, everything seems very fast and spontaneous, but in reality, months of writing, production and editing went into each and every scene, shot, and line in the film. Much in the same way, it would be foolish to think that there isn’t a very delicate plan behind this seemingly very spontaneous drama we call ‘life’. The economy is on the precipice of collapse, heating political affairs are walking a tightrope, and we’re on the brink of a planetary suicide. All we need now is that little extra push.
