In one week, it shall be delivered upon us.
Yet another Hollywood blockbuster portraying the future as if it doesn’t already exist in the present…
That’s what we have to look forward to in Matt Damon’s new feature roll.
It’s the plot that never gets old:
The wealthy live away from, obscured from, protected from, at the expense of, and above the means and geographical location of the poor in their compartmental slums, separated by some barrier to keep the poor poor and the wealthy wealthy. Brave New World, Cloud Atlas, Upside Down, and so many “dystopian” others – all representing the allegory of the real world that never stops being promoted and cleverly re-created on the big screen.
Add some science fiction and a bit of transhumanism into the mix, and you’ve got Elysium.
“Elysium or the Elysian Fields (Ancient Greek: Ἠλύσιον πεδίον, Ēlýsion pedíon) is a conception of the afterlife that evolved over time and was maintained by certain Greek religious and philosophical sects and cults. Initially separate from the realm of Hades, admission was initially reserved for mortals related to the gods and other heroes. Later, it expanded to include those chosen by the gods, the righteous, and the heroic, where they would remain after death, to live a blessed and happy life, and indulging in whatever employment they had enjoyed in life…” (Wikipedia)
“The good receive a life free from toil, not scraping with the strength of their
arms the earth, nor the water of the sea, for the sake of a poor sustenance.
But in the presence of the honored gods, those who
gladly kept their oaths enjoy a life without tears,
while the others undergo a toil that is unbearable to look at.”
— Pindar, Odes (2.59-75)
“And they live untouched by sorrow in the islands of the blessed
along the shore of deep-swirling Ocean, happy heroes for whom
the grain-giving earth bears honey-sweet fruit flourishing thrice a year,
far from the deathless gods, and Cronos rules over them”
—Hesiod,Works and Days (170)
Will Transhumanism make
demigods fit to enter Elysium?
It’s bad enough to watch the for-profit and expendable commodities called the common people pay to watch a science fiction version of their own lives… but as a former Hollywood sound designer, what really pisses me off about Hollywood productions such as this is the incestual nature of who is presenting it. It goes beyond that surface sleaze portrayed in magazines and alternative news. For the royalty of America are not princes and dukes, but are instead the actors, producers, and directors.
Blood is the missing link, exposing Hollywood for what it is…
Will you go pay $8-14 dollars to watch royal blooded Matt Damon (one of the wealthiest celebs in America) portray an impoverished man bent on destroying the very barriers that allows that lavish wealth to prosper at the expense of the impoverished? Will you then believe somehow that Matt Damon is on the side of the poor billions – a good guy using his celebrity for the causes of the common blood – just because he starred in a movie portraying him as such?
Will you sense the irony of your own disposition as one of those people not allowed in Matt Damon’s real world Elysium on Earth – his ruling class and bloodline family? Do you understand that you’ve been made to love your servitude, just as Matt Damon’s cousin Aldous Huxley wrote so long ago in his ‘Brave New World’?
Apparently, you like it so much that you’d actually pay to go see your own servitude portrayed to you as entertainment on the big screen!!!
Ironically, the only way you’d get angry enough to do anything about or even learn about your enslavement as portrayed in the movie would be to boycott the entertainment industry all together – to stop supporting and watching so that you have time to learn and think! For the movies always show endings where the good guys (people) win, tearing down the powers that be. And this brings the powerful and subversive tool of hope into the minds of the impoverished multitude who watch movies or read books instead of claiming their own freedom. Of course hope is the greatest tool of power and elitism, creating a state (body politic) of inaction. Hope is the act of not doing what you should do because you hope someone like Matt Damon will come along and do it for you. But of course he is just promoting hope so that you don’t act against his wealth…
Let me tell you about your royal celebrity, Matthew Paige Damon:
“Ben Affleck and Matt Damon are cousins, BOSTON – It seems Matt Damon and Ben Affleck are more than childhood pals and Hollywood collaborators.
According to the New England Genealogical Society, they’re also cousins. Tenth cousins, once removed, that is.
Society researchers dug up evidence that both Damon and Affleck are descended from William Knowlton Jr. He was a bricklayer (Mason) who came to the U.S. from England in the 1630’s and settled in Ipswich.
The Society said Friday that Affleck has lots of other famous relatives, including 16 U.S. Presidents – Barack Obama among them – and the late Princess Diana…”
Here’s Matthew Paige Damon with his cousin John Lithgow, both of whom attended the elite Harvard University:
Hollywood award shows are just that – cousins giving cousins awards.
Here’s Mathew Paige Damon with his cousin Michael Kirk Douglas (son of Jewish Issur Danielovitch Demsky – stage name Kirk Douglas).
Other genealogical cousinly relations of “Mathew Paige Damon” include Clint Eastwood, Anthony Perkins, Glenn Close, Eldred Gregory Peck, Katherine Houghton Hepburn, Edward Montgomery Clift, Henry Jaynes Fonda, Alexander Rae (Alec) Baldwin, Mark Hamill, Kevin Bacon, John Christopher (Johny) Depp, Jr, Maria Shriver, Johny Carson, Jake Gyllenhaal, Ron Howard, Tom Hanks, Christopher Reeve, Mathew Avery Modine, Justin Randall Timberlake, Mary Frances (Debbie) Reynolds, Carrie Frances Fisher, Molly Kathleen Ringwald, Christina Applegate, Jo Raquel Tejada (Raquel Welch), Lyndsey Adams Buckingham (Fleetwood Mac), Mary Chapin Carpenter (Country), David Van Cortlandt Crosby (Crosby, Stills, and Nash), Glenn Miller (Orchestra), and names like Joseph Smith and Brigham Young, Anderson Cooper (Vanderbilt), Woodrow Wilson, Franklin Delano Roosevelt, George Bush, John Forbes Kerry, Barack Obama, Richard Nixon, James Monroe, Martin Van Buren, Ronald Wilson Reagan, Alexander Hamilton, John Hancock, Howard Bush Dean II, Sarah Louise Heath Palin (Sarah Palin), Robert Joseph (Bob) Dole, Winston Churchill, John D. Rockefeller, John Jacob Astor IV, Lance Edward Gunderson (Lance Armstrong), William Henry Gates III (Bill Gates), Robert Ludlum, Ralph Waldo Emerson, Howard Robard Hughes and the Wright Brothers, and countless congressmen, governors, generals, and other political, military, actors, authors, poets, and the signers of the constitution and declaration of independence, etc…
Stephen Warde Anderson’s listing of his own famous cousins is seemingly endless:
Take just one family line from dozens listed there:
From John Perkins and Judith Gater:
Jane Appleton Pierce
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Robert Wood Johnson
Hiram Bingham III
George Grant Blaisdell
Melville Bell Grosvenor
Franklin Delano Roosevelt
E. E. Cummings
Hiram Bingham IV
Cpt. Charles Butler McVay III
David Bulkeley Langmuir
But I’m sure both Damon and Affleck got famous
because of sheer talent and unplanned luck, right?
I mean, that’s why they didn’t end up waiting tables, right…
like all the common blood wannabe actors who go to Hollywood?
Nothing to see here…
Nothing to do with bloodlines…
So, I have a question to all of you commoners out there like myself: You gonna go see yet another movie where rich bloodline cousins portray someone like you, but who would just as soon see you dead? You gonna pay good money to watch the true life story of your life presented as science fiction, where the poor battle to eat and feed their children and work their fingers to the bone, enslaved by the bloodline upper-class? Will it entertain you? Or will it make you want to become a champion of your fellow debt slaves out here in the real world?
The real underlying theme of this movie and hundreds like it is simply that there can be no wealthy upper class who hoards what others need unless there is the unequal and opposite class of impoverished common blood people. For there is no black without white, no wealth without massive levels of poverty.
And while the millions are entertained in movie houses across the world, the billions continue to starve – those who would and probably should kill for the $10 bucks you just wasted on a movie whose massive budget alone could have fed the world, twice over.
And hey, Mr. Damon, I never heard back from you on your blatant snow job and misinformation campaign called “Inside job”. You had the chance to change the world – to help conquer Elysium for real in the real world out here by exposing the true financial happenings of the great banking crisis and government investment wealth and control (governance) of those banks. But instead you and your blood cousins are probably still laughing all the way to the bank – enjoying proceeds from a completely incomplete documentary designed to hide the one thing that explains and is behind everything.
Here, I’ll re-post those again for you, so that you know what true activism looks like…
What else is there to say here?
I can’t force you to take your kids to the park instead of paying for a celebrity’s plastic surgery and the Hollywood mind control empire through movie ticket sales. I can’t make you not accept biometric implants that make using your debt-inducing credit card easier at the pumps. And I certainly can’t tell you something you don’t want to hear…
But maybe, just maybe, one of you actually gets it out there. And maybe it will spread. And maybe the real and modern Elysium actually will be destroyed.
And maybe hope is not just a four-letter word…
