Last year I wrote about zombies; how we are already surrounded by countless, unconscious people repeating their routines with little understanding of anything. They’re stuck to their smart phones and meaningless hobbies like politics. This makes the people who aren’t zombified feel pretty lonely, but ultimately zombies are slow and dumb, and cannot really harm you unless you give them the opportunity to do so. I think that is about to change.
I was going to write about Pod People, the Invasion of the Body Snatchers, after the Zombie-article but other things came up. Right now I see that it wasn’t the time for that quite yet. But right now I think the zombies are leveling up, or being upgraded, to become Pod People.
Invasion of the Body Snatchers is a science-fiction horror film from 1956 where alien plant-like pods try to take over the world by absorbing people into the pod, killing them and creating a clone with their appearance and memories, but the clones don’t have souls or emotions. The aliens do it slowly and covertly until they have a distinct majority, when they take over overtly.
The movie was, of course, an analogy for Communism. I thought the Red Scare paranoia of the 50s and 60s was funny when I saw Body Snatchers as a teenager twenty years ago, but I don’t think it’s funny anymore, since the Commies are at my doorstep. There have been two remakes of the movie in the seventies and nineties. The seventies version has Donald Sutherland and Leonard “Spock” Nimoy in it, but I don’t remember much of it. I’ve always liked the nineties version, since I’m a nineties kid.
How it relates to today is quite obvious the New World Religion with the Rainbow Flag. Yesterday I perused through Facebook and it looked like 1/3 or 1/4 of my friends had added the rainbow effect to their profile pics. I find this sort of mass behaviour really disturbing, regardless of what one’s view on homosexuality or gay is marriage is. Can’t they see how they are being controlled by the media-political complex?
After the gay marriage law in the States, Head-Pharaoh Obama (I mean puppet) said Americans need to shift religious views to accept gay marriage. Well, this doesn’t affect just Americans. The Rainbow Religion has been celebrated all over the world. Maybe I should move to the Middle-East, that might be last region in the world to accept it?
Anyways, I don’t think the message about shifting religious views means just that conservatives should become more progressive, but that they should shift their religious views from their previous religion, Christianity, Islam, agnosticism, atheism, Buddhism or whatever, into the New World Religion of Transhuman Inclusiveness. I think the fact that the White House is now the Rainbow House reflects a much deeper change in the spiritual beliefs of America and the world than that they are merely being “tolerant” of those who are different.
How this is related to the Pod People then? I can’t help but feel that those of us who still have a mind of our own and have a hard time accepting this new religion, will find ourselves in situations similar to the characters in the Body Snatcher-movies. If you say something like: “I think marriage is a bond between a man and a woman”, or “I find it disturbing that people are suddenly showing that Rainbow Flag everywhere”, the Pod People are going to point their finger at you and scream hater, Nazi, or homophobe. They will of course tell their friends, and they will ostracize you for not seeing the multi-coloured light (which is ultimately brown).
I’m not saying this to try to stir panic, but just to give a heads up on what to expect. Some people clearly do not have souls. Either they’ve lost them or never had them in the first place. They just go with the program no matter what.
This whole thing isn’t ultimately about homosexuality. I don’t care what two consenting adults do in the privacy of their bedrooms, or if two guys wanna call themselves husband and wife. I guess I’m leaning toward the idea that a marriage has to have a man and a woman, but ultimately it’s an individual’s choice how to view the issue. My beef is with the fact that this Rainbow Religion is not about any individual opinion. Either you get into the alien pod with everyone else, or you will be eliminated.
I also don’t think it is a co-incidence that recently Bruce Jenner “transformed” into a woman and it was all over the news, and the Charleston shooting happened and the Confederate Flags are being replaced with the Rainbow Flag. These things, and the promotion of the Rainbow Flag, all are steps on the path toward where the Matrix movie started: in small cybernetic pods.
