Hollywood has, from its inception, been used to shape the behavior of people.
That’s why Walt Disney tried to get the “communists” (a euphemism for Jəws) out of filmmaking. He had a vision that film should be like fairy tales, Greek myths, or the Bible, an extension of the ancient European storytelling tradition.
But, the Jëws turned it into a machine to shape the world in their image.
It seems plausible that they’ve also used it to shape the response to the coronavirus hoax.
It’s a bit too tinfoil for me to go all the way to “the coronavirus was planned decades ago and they put out movies to shape people’s perception of how they should react to it”, but that was the effect, whether or not it was planned.
Binge watching Netflix has been a guilty pleasure for many during COVID-19 lockdowns. While it may seem unproductive, watching the “right” shows before the pandemic may have actually helped people cope with 2020. Researchers from Penn State say watching doomsday fiction may have mentally prepared some people for the ongoing crisis; allowing them to deal with a non-fictional pandemic better.
“My colleagues wanted to identify factors beyond personality that contributed to people’s psychological preparedness and resilience in the face of the pandemic,” says co-author John Johnson in a university release. “After factoring out personality influences… we found that the more movies about zombies, alien invasions and apocalyptic pandemics people had seen prior to COVID-19, the better they dealt with the actual, current pandemic. These kinds of movies apparently serve as mental rehearsal for actual events.”
University of Chicago graduate student Colton Scrivner designed the study. Scrivner studies the psychology of horror — why people are attracted to horror stories. For this latest project, Scrivner wanted to see whether people who like horror fiction fared better during COVID-19. He reached out to Johnson for help developing a survey and analyzing the results.
Scrivner and his collaborators surveyed 310 people. Their survey measured resilience and included questions specific to the COVID-19 pandemic. They also asked people how much they enjoyed horror, zombie, psychological thriller, supernatural, apocalyptic/post-apocalyptic, science fiction, alien-invasion, crime, comedy, and romance genres.
After controlling for confounding factors such as personality, the researchers determined whether a person’s preference for horror stories affected their resilience during COVID-19.
“People who watched certain kinds of movies before the pandemic seemed to be helped by them during the pandemic,” Johnson reports.
Help them do what?
Help them respond how the government wanted them to respond.
Everyone should watch this 2011 movie with Matt Damon called “Contagion.” I myself, admittedly, have seen it a few dozen times.
Here’s a short clip of Damon talking about it, talking about how “plausible” it is.
People literally think that movie is actually happening right now, and the media plays it up. The media was literally telling people to watch this movie last March, and saying it was like this, and when they film hospital scenes for news segments, they film them to resemble this movie.
The film was directed by the very talented non-Jėw Steven Soderbergh. He is known for high drama, and has made mostly enjoyable movies. In 2001, he became the only director to be nominated for the Academy Award for best picture for two movies at the same time for Erin Brockovich and Traffic (Traffic won).
More interestingly, the film is written and produced by an individual named Scott Z. Burns (who appears to be Jëwish).
Burns was the producer of – wait for it – Al Gore’s 2006 film “An Inconvenient Truth,” which predicted that global warming would put cities underwater by 2020. All of his other films have some political slant. He recently made one about the Panama Papers and one about CIA torture.
Here’s where it gets really interesting: he actually worked with the CDC to understand what “an actual pandemic response” would look like.
During the early days of the coronavirus hoax, he came out and denounced Donald Trump, and said that the response should be more like it was in the movie.
So, that is definitely a very strange series of events. Again, I’m too anti-conspiracy to really say “the CDC planned all this in advance, and used this film to shape the image of how people should react,” but I think that is probably Occam’s Razor. Surely, plans for this fake pandemic were drawn up by 2011. Someone in the CIA had floated the idea of telling people the flu was a new virus that was killing everyone and that this meant we had to give up all our Constitutional rights, and there is a pretty good chance that the writer of Contagion is friends with people from the CIA.
Do you guys remember that X-Files spin-off series “The Lone Gunman” that had the CIA flying a plane into the World Trade Center in order to launch a global war on terror? It aired a few months before that exact thing happened.
That one really, really is too much to be a coincidence.
That didn’t serve the purpose of telling people how to react, in the way “Contagion” did. Many years ago, in a clip that is probably very hard to find, one of the stars of the show, Dean Haglund, went on Alex Jones and he said that CIA guys would hang out on the set of X-Files, and he thought that one of them told one of the producers a story about how the CIA had drawn up plans to do this. He said, I’m going by memory, that he thought the CIA guy didn’t know they were actually going to do it, he was just “telling crazy stories about the kind of stuff they think about in CIA black-ops.”
Unironically, the same has been speculated about The Simpsons in being accurate about perishing certain past events.
But I mean, no tinfoil there: this actually happened in real life.
So, who knows?
What I do know is this: don’t go too far down conspiracy rabbit holes. Try to stick with stuff you can prove, as much as possible. Like, Bill Gates’ uncanny propensity to telegraph his plans for our futures.
Sadly, with this total lockdown on information we’re entering into now, we’re all going to be coming up with conspiracy theories about everything that happens, because the government has decided that we just aren’t allowed to have access to information.
It’s one of the things about my work here on the site that causes me stress: I don’t want to be a conspiracy theory site, but if there is no information available, what are my other options? What I can promise you is that any theories I post will always be clearly presented as speculation and not as fact. Facts are facts, speculation is speculation. Yes: we’re going to be dealing with more speculation as we have access to fewer facts.
Now: how about all those movies Hollywood made about aliens?
What do you think about that?
