FILM MAKING COMMUNISTS
The theory and practice of using super propaganda.
(Added to this website on 2/1/10.)
Main MenuThe American communists and trial lawyers have had a program designed to bankrupt various businesses (capitalists) for many years. Their more successful attempts have been the result of suing each targeted business for anything that goes wrong when one of its products is involved. In most states (pehaps all of them, but I have not checked this out in all of them), it is legal to sue without danger of paying the legal fees and court costs of the defendant should the suit fail. A well-financed suit can be launched against anyone and the outcome will be against the defendant regardless - because the costs for the defendant will put him or her out of business. The communists get their money for foundations like those funded by Soros or China. They once were funded by Moscow, but the Russians are not very wealthy now and they have already accomplished most of their tasks in the U.S. The point is the communists have resources that exceed any from a single U.S. business.
Some of the first businesses to fall from this onslaught were private airplane manufacturers. Some survived by realizing that it was cheaper for them to settle out of court than to go to trial. However, this policy did not necessarily save them in the long run. The firearms manufacturers were threatened and some went under before organizations like the National Rifle Association and Gun Owners of America became strongly involved. Smith and Wesson capitulated and was saved by giving up its principles. As I recall, its management agreed essentially to stop selling to the public.
Since judges and juries were involved in the lawsuits, it was very advantageous for the communists to make extensive use of propanda to influence the judges and the members of the juries. Hollywood and independent film makers could reach the public and have a strong influence on judges, juries, and voters. Furthermore, those in the entertainment industry were often easily persuaded because they seldom knew anything but their vocation. Greed, ignorance, gullibility, and lack of any real patriotism made those in the film industry the best ones to serve the needs of the communists. Those who were patriotic in nature, were influenced by a false ideology (their fault was ignorance). The others could be influenced with money. Some were influenced because they needed to have jobs to survive. The result was the propanda films of the communists.
Most of us who have been taught the methods of teaching realize that most of our input that actually is retained comes through our sense of sight. Our sense of hearing is important too, but the best learning comes when all senses are employed - sight, sound, taste, smell, and touch - as well as our kinesthetic sense. If subjects can be taught with vivid color (sight), music (hearing), eating (taste), incense (smell), use of the hands on the subject (touch), and dancing (kinesthetic sense), they will be retained. If they can be taught while the student is in a receptive state (alpha), they will be even more deeply retained. And if emotion is involved, acceptance and retention are greatly enhanced.
Often the messages from our senses are negative mixed with positive. When I was walking in the streets of Pakistan in the 1960s, the sights were of camels, dromedaries, colorful clothing, flies on meat in the open market, flies on faces with eyes in various stages of conjunctivitis, and leather items being treated with urine. The sounds were unique to the place and time, and not particularly pleasant or unpleasant. The smell was mostly of open sewage and it permeated my clothing. The experience would be remembered always. However, a travel brochure or a television tour of the same place, was not as easily retained - such things use only sight and sound.
In Paris, I had the misfortune to witness a pretty lady in her thirties deliberately fall into the path of an oncoming subway train. This was so close, so vivid, and so emotionally unsettling that my mind blocked it out from the time she began to fall until the train had done its work on her body. But the emotion is still there, somewhat blunted by time - and the experience itself and the mystery it presented cannot be completely erased. Why did she do it?
Movies today employ sight in vivid color - some of it in 3D with screens all around. Sound is employed, including music to enhance emotion. Churches use everything from harmonious chants to proven religious music to put their messages across. Advertisers use music of all kinds to gain attention and put their messages across. Hitler, Stalin, Castro, Obama, and other communists have used (or still use) rhetoric and music to hypnotize audiences. So far, taste, smell, and touch are not used on the movie screen, but something kinesthetic is used via low-frequency sound in some movies.
Michael Moore's pictures are probably the most obvious examples of communist propaganda from film makers, but there are many others - by efforts of popular, but anti-American, men and women like Robert Redford, Jane Fonda, and a whole crowd of newer faces. A book by John Grisham was used as a basis for a movie by 20th Century Fox, titled Runaway Jury. Being a thriller, it uses emotion to drive its propaganda across, leaving most people's thinking minds behind as it progresses.
The film has in it such actors and actresses as John Cusack, Gene Hackman, Dustin Hoffman, and Rachel Weisz.
The messages it provides are:
1. The U.S. firearms manufacturers are ridiculously wealthy and crooked.
2. The U.S. firearms manufacturers must be stopped through litigation.
(Every time a crime is committed with a firearm, the firm that created the firearm must be sued.)
3. The U.S. firearms manufacturers tamper with juries, using vast amounts of wealth to research jury members and judges in their efforts to bribe or intimidate them - and homicide may be one of their options.
4. Those who want to take guns away from the people are the good guys.
5. The ends justify the means for the anti-gun crowd.
The means used to instill these messages in the audiences are:
1. Pity for the innocent victim who was killed by a firearm [kitchen knives, automobiles, baseball bats, hammers, and other items are fine].
2. Pity for the perpetrators of crimes using firearms (they are innocent victims of the firearms manufacturer).
3. Anger at the cruel, crooked, greedy firearms manufacturer.
4. Patriotic fervor for those who are fighting to take away the guns in America.
5. Contempt for the Second Amendment to the Constitution.
6. Music and violence to place more emotion into the messages.
7. Lack of arguments in favor of our Second Amendment rights.
8. False statistics regarding firearms and profits from firearms.
These supposed statistics are so far off base as to be ludicrous to anyone who knows the truth.
This film is merely one of a number that attempt to use various themes which will weaken the nation. Anti-war movies use the idea of peace. Peace has never been anything but the consequence of mutual respect between nations or brutal subjugation. Peace is almost never a means to an end, and communists think of peace as the consequence of their having subjugated everyone who could disturb their peace. Consequences should never be confused with reasons or causes for something occurring. Those who do not know the difference are too weak-minded to be allowed to vote, but they do so regardless. Movies which eulogize or otherwise dignify communist dictators or rogue nations are used to lull the public into complacency. Because money is critical for film makers, only the viewing public can choke the money supply to those in communist propaganda films.
