Movies control your life
A couple of years ago there was a shooting during a Batman movie and the killer owned a Batman mask and called himself The Joker.
And we’ve seen that kind of movie triggered episodes repeatedly.
We always read that movie producers explain that those people are already crazy and that movies can’t influence people to do anything because the audience knows how to separate fact from fiction.
Well, they are wrong; we do not know how to separate fact from fiction.
When you watch a movie based on historical events, can you tell which parts was fiction and which ones reality?
You don’t know, do you?
What is real is that after Top Gun, Navy aviator recruitment rise 500 percent and also that the number of kids taking martial arts classes exploded after The Karate Kid.
Every single movie story was invented to control you.
That’s why superhero movies are so popular, because they were created as a way to teach you how to behave.
This is why stories were invented, to shape your brain in a certain way.
In a society, the people, the buildings and the roads are the hardware, movies is the software.
A clear example is Michael Bay.
He feels a certain way about women, and about the role of women in the world, and you will leave his movie agreeing with him just a little bit more than when you came in.
If you ever been arrested you know that nothing is like what we see in the movies because we don’t have criminal classes at school.
Everything you know about the criminal justice system came from actors on a glowing rectangular screen.
That’s why movies are so effective at shaping your personality, because you subconsciously assumed that large parts of these fictional stories weren’t fiction.
Fictional stories shaped your entire world.
You will reject this idea because you hate the thought that anyone but you has made you who you are.
But the truth is that you will spend your whole life trying to make your world look like what you’ve learn from movies.
Your expectations of how your life should look like are programmed by movies.
Expectations are crucial in your life and you’re handing them over to Michael Bay.
the world must know the truth!
