Sometimes in the Conspiracy Culture it is easy to get lost in pessimism and forget that sometimes the good guys (Libertarians, Conservatives, and Tea Partiers) sometimes do win and manage to get in a quarter-back sneak.
Alex Jones has recently mentioned the new Tom Cruise film ‘Oblivion’ as being a good flick that shows humanity rising up against (alien) control-freaks.
Another flick that I would mention would be Starship Troopers! (1997) Are you a Conspiracy Theorists concerned about a Socialist-Collectivist hive-mind total take-over?
Then seeing the super-soldiers of ‘Starship Troopers’ as they battle the ultimate collectivist menace, the bugs should be right up ones alley. The bugs are hard-core collectivists, all looking and acting the same, they are practically like MSNBC viewers! Haha!
Not only does Starship Troopers manage to capture the horrors of fighting against Collectivism, but it also illustrates the ‘pyramid of control’ that Conspiracist Researchers often point to. The ‘top controllers’ in the bug-world are what are known as ‘Brain Bugs’. In the Conspiracy realm a Brain Bug is sort of the equivalent to George Soros, the Rockefellers, or the Rothchilds!
It turns out that the author of the original ‘Starship Troopers’ book was a mega-libertarian named Robert Heinlein who was against the Collectivism of his time: Communism!
Starship Troopers is also widely-regarded[who?] as a vehicle for Heinlein’s anti-communist views. Characters attackKarl Marx (a “pompous fraud”), the labor theory of value (“All the work one cares to add will not turn a mud pie into an apple tart…”), and Plato‘s The Republic (“ant-like communism” and “weird in the extreme”).
Well in todays world one is not threatened by Commies, but by the menace of the incipient New World Order!
To re-juice sometimes it is nice to take a break and visit my old friends from the ’90s: Johnny Rico, Carmen Ibanez, and Carl Jenkins and cheer them on as they battle Collectivists too!
