I finally saw “Avatar” last night.
While it has a very slow build, when it goes it really goes.
And I am also aware of the very Liberal leanings of the film.
The Environment. Destruction. Colonization. Raping the planet etc.
After all, the mineral they are after was “unobtainium”.
That is a real word.
Engineers have long (since at least the 1950s) used the term unobtainium when referring to unusual or costly materials, or when theoretically considering a material perfect for their needs in all respects save that it doesn’t exist.
The Miracle cure.
I am also aware now of the “depression” factor being described.
And I think that’s more spiritual than material.
After all, what is one of the things Liberals hate most, Christians.
Who found this country, Christians (Puritan sect to be specific).
If you’re a Christian you’ve got to be some kind of right-wing extremist who wants to cram their religion down everyone’s throat! 🙂
I am not a Christian, per se. That is a topic for another day. But I am spiritual.
Which is usually enough to get branded as a right-wing hatemonger anyhow. 😦
So the Liberal answer is to ban religion as much as they possible can from everything. That way “no one” is “offended”. No one, meaning them.
Their god is government. Their god is power.
And they want to everyone to worship them for it or else.
But like a good piece of art, you can see other things in it.
“I wasn’t depressed myself. In fact the movie made me happy ,” Baghdassarian said. “But I can understand why it made people depressed. The movie was so beautiful and it showed something we don’t have here on Earth. I think people saw we could be living in a completely different world and that caused them to be depressed.” One online form leader wrote.
Some other have seen it as the Ugly American vs. The Noble Savage.
I saw it as The Tea Party Americans Vs. The Washington Machine (both Republican and Democrat)
The biggest differences are that the Machine has the home field advantage, the technology, and the power.
We are the dumb hick savages who want Less Government Control, Spending Restraint, National Security and Pride in America.
For that we are mocked. Degraded. spit upon.
By their 90% control of the media.
By their minions, the Liberal Left.
And they aren’t even interested in our concerns.
They may play at it, but their not.
So we are out gunned.
We have won battles in New Jersey, Virginia, and Massachusetts.
But the final battle is 9 months away.
That’s a long time.
The Liberal Media spent the better part of a decade, and the Politically Correct the better part of a generation working towards their ultimate goal in 2008.
They aren’t going to give up without a major fight.
We can try and persuade the Republicans to come on board with us, as Sarah Palin said at the Tea Party Convention.
There’s no hope for the Liberal Left. They are definitely the occupying force.
They are the Empire and we are the Ewoks.
And they will not go quietly.
And we both speak the same language and have the same cultural background. So we are aliens on our own soil.
That just makes it even harder.
Eywa, the god of the Nav’i.
The Constitution, the most sacred document in the American experience.
And we the noble savages of the Independents, we The tea Party Nation, want it back.
The Washington Machine is there to self-perpetuate. That’s is all.
Bureaucracy for bureaucracy’s sake.
And we need to hunker down with our Ancestors:
We need to honor our ancestors. Not spit on them.
That is the harmony we need back.
And it’s going to be a very nasty fight.
And no guarantee of a good Hollywood ending here.
This is reality.
And reality is unfair.
Reality is a bitch.
But we have to fight. For no other reason that the memories we have of when The American Dream meant something. When work hard and you will succeed meant something.
When leaving the next generation the fruits of our labors and freedoms did not mean generational theft on a grand scale for the sake of the here and now.
To once again, let our vision and reach exceed our grasp.
It’s what made us great.
But we have lost our way.
But if we don’t stop this now we will be lost.
And The American Dream, will be just that a dream, with no chance of Reality.
Then we really should be depressed.
