Over the weekend, Liam and I finished watching the four-hour Zack Snyder cut of the Justice League. All in all, we enjoyed it. We discussed how many scenes probably should have been cut out but it helped to flesh out the characters that otherwise were 2 dimensional.
The last segment of the film, without giving away any spoilers, featured Batman having a conversation with the Joker. The backdrop was a cold apocalyptic sequence.
I am not giving anything away of course; the segment was really not needed, and it is in the trailer. However, there is controversy surrounding a line that was uttered in the trailer and not in the film.
In the trailer, the Joker played by Jared Leto says to Batman:
” We live in a society where honor is a distant memory. Isn’t that right, Batman?”
The scene is from the Knightmare timeline first glimpsed in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, a dystopian future where the main villain Darkseid has succeeded in conquering Earth.
We have to assume that Darkseid succeeded in finding what is called “The AntiLife Equation” something that is mentioned in the film without much explanation.
I decided to research what the “AntiLife Equation” is and what I found was intriguing.
According to the DC wiki page the AntiLife equation is defined:
“It implants the mathematical certainty that all life is hopeless, and that freedom and hope are futile concepts, dooming those who hear it to despair.
The AntiLife Equation has the power to dominate the will of any sentient race in addition to reality-altering powers that twist and distort freedom over life and death. It derives its name from the fact that “if someone possesses absolute control over you—you’re not really alive.
The AntiLife equation from what I can understand is the building block for true fascism and the objective of what can be called a Leviathan rule.
Maintaining the economic, governmental and scientific frameworks of a technocratic fascist “operating system” is unthinkable without propaganda and disinformation. When truth is seen as a liability to power, it must always be disallowed, and all instances of it effectively penalized.
Radio and television and their constant enabler, popular “science” or “expert editorializing” – operate today as their own religions, reliant for their success upon the devotion of the masses.
Its success is being able to beguile the people into becoming obedient and gullible automatons of the state.
We live in hyper-mediated times. We are allowing ourselves to be guided by strangers who magically appear electronically on our TV screens and cell phones.
Corporate media focuses on stories they are paid to propagate, those which support the financial and ideological agendas of their owners, who themselves are all, without exception, central parts of the larger global ruling oligarchy.
It is in their best interest to push ideologies meant to divide us. One of their tools appears to be the use of critical race theory.
Critical race theory is the view that the law and legal institutions are inherently racist and that race itself, instead of being biologically grounded and natural, is a socially constructed concept that is used by white people to further their economic and political interests at the expense of people of color.
Those who deploy critical race theory have absolutely no interest in ending racism. Instead, they have made essentially the same point over and over again: Racism is an unsolvable problem.
This opens the door for scapegoats and the narratives about hate crimes and gun crimes seems to be dominating the media narrative, they are being used as an excuse to push domestic terror laws and eventually gun confiscation.
We need to utilize discernment when we hear of sudden hate crimes being levied against the Asian community or that an active shooter was a White Supremacist even before we find out that he was a white supremacist, Nazi, BLM Antifa, extreme Muslim lone nut MK ultra-sleeper, or some other useful idiot with an ax to grind.
The right-wing nationalist terrorist narrative is now being pushed as the media is selecting their various narratives that push critical race theories.
Many of these narratives fuel activist anger and that anger is seen in attacks on government buildings and police officers.
It is meant to seed civil war — or a continuous civil upheaval.
It is important to remember that because very few of its activists have shown much sincere desire to end racism, critical race theory should not be taken entirely at face value. If a majority of its supporters were sincere, they would be willing to have fruitful discussions in a civil society that supports civil discourse. Rather, critical race theory’s agitators are committed to tearing down civil society on the pretense that it is an incubator for “systemic racism.”
As with all forms of identity politics and intersectionality, critical race theory stokes divisions between people where few or none existed before. It’s all about relational aggression and predatory alienation.
For example, the Atlanta massage parlor shootings has created debate on whether or not the suspect Robert Aaron Long was motivated by racial animus. Police have not said either way but the media has taken upon itself to declare it a hate crime against the Asian community.
This has sparked all kind of rallies and protests.
It needs to be reinforced that while most of the women killed in the attack were Asian two were white women.
The media has amplified the false narrative that “white supremacy” is to blame.
The deadly Colorado shooting where 10 people were gunned down by an armed assailant in the King Soopers Grocery store in Boulder is another example.
By the time of the Boulder attack, the news cycle that followed Atlanta was already geared up for reporting that this attack was another example of White supremacy run amok and domestic terrorism.
The suspect was a mentally ill Syrian born male named Ahmad al Aliwi Alissa.
Needless to say, that the story was about to be another repetitive lesson assuming white supremacy or domestic terror exploited for the antigun lobby.
Sometimes, such close repetition can galvanize national attention and grief– having the media jump the gun and developing a hate crime scenario for yet another attack is lazy and appears to foment an agenda of hate as well.
I think that if we look hard at what is being done to us we will find that this could be what was named the “Antilife Equation” spoken of in the new Justice league film.
A key part of the divide and conquer handbook is to simply leave unexplored stories that they are not given approval to manage and control; stories which, we might assume, do not generate sufficient advantage for the owners.
Such calculated sins of omission are essential to keeping the mass of believers unperturbed by the vagaries of complexity in the delivery of their daily dogmas.
A perfect example of this process, a parallel case from Soviet history. As peasant farmers tended to be overwhelmingly religious, traditional, and family-oriented, the Bolshevik government hated them with a fiery passion. Increasing the acrimony further, the peasants resisted giving up their family-run farms—a roadblock to the Soviet leadership’s desire to exercise complete control over the nation’s food supply.
To collectivize agriculture, Soviet leader Joseph Stalin devised a plan to stir up hostilities among the peasants where resentments had never existed before. As would be the case later with Mao’s Red Guard the Soviets used mobs of youth to do the dirty work.
The Communist Youth League, known as the Komsomol, went into villages to propagandize and incite divisions, turning formerly peaceful neighbors against one another.
Does any of this sound familiar?
Those who wish to divide us know how to use the useful idiots to do their dirty work.
It is like the Joker says in that excised line from the final cut of the Justice League where we live in a society where honor is a distant memory.
And apparently so is the truth.
There is a frightening emotional investment that we put into things here in this country. It has become the imperative to speak up about victimization and the lack of American action against what we are seeing as base manipulation and mental control.
Trauma has forced us to follow the Hegelian dialectic.
We are now seeing what victimization does to logic. What mental torture does to the intellect. How it seems that we are so hopeful that things will change that we ignore that they really haven’t. It is time our nation, as a collective whole, toughen our emotional skins and stop pretending whatever horrors are happening are going to change or go away soon. Otherwise, we will make harsh judgments on our fellow man based on programmed prejudices that pose as some sick form of what our leadership is calling democracy –what the ill-informed call justice and what the cancel culture feels they have to enforce.
The intended prevocational psy-pop already has its hooks in our national psyche. The hook has been baited and the government is in a position of watch and wait. The question is if you will allow yourself to be reeled in.
Our mere form of government cannot safeguard our country from falling into the depths of corruption. You can elect any Tom Dick or Harry into the presidency and they still would not be able to protect the nation from swinging towards despotism and it is becoming evident that the people of the United States of America are witnessing that partisanship cannot be the determining factor in “values” and the substantive process of running a government for the people by the people.
The free-thinking culture has now been replaced with the programmable and fragile culture.
If you thumb through the pages of history, you will see that Germany under President Hindenburg was a republic. Yet within the republic an economic meltdown occurred, and a despot named Adolf Hitler was able to flourish in this democratic republic.
But of course, using Hitler as an example sometimes becomes a turn off because no one who is partisan to one party or another in the United States wants to hear that their leader or candidate espouses any philosophies that Hitler had.
We all know that he was a monster and that there were no redeeming qualities in him. Either his people had to have been stupid or really evil to follow him into the darkest pages of history.
They were neither but because of their fragility, they were easily manipulated.
The enduring beauty of fascism is that it requires so little from us… so little independent thought; just our basic belief and adherence to a limited set of popularly shared directives and narratives that once fully accepted, relieve us of the need to address stubborn questions or to worry over subtle differences of opinion and feeling.
Propaganda reassures us that we are complete, that we know all there is to know, that we are rational, pragmatic and pure, that the science has been settled and that we are a part of something special.
Such a surrender to reductionist narratives cuts across all classes and income brackets. Neither the most educated nor the least uneducated retain any special advantage in the face of powerful consensus-shaping propaganda.
The truth becomes a casualty in the AntiLife Equation.
The truth is that most people simply do not want to know, think or talk about any such truths that differ from those accepted by their peers, for whom cognitive dissonance causes such literal pain and disorientation, as to keep them docile and compliant to the dictates of the media.
I can only revert to the night when I made the statement about how history shows us that the bad guys have always been the ones that have burned books, censored the people disarmed them and then tracked and catalogued them.
A listener named Reuben called to say that he disagreed with me and when I asked him to cite a time in history where the good guys did all of this — he was caught like a deer in the headlights — unable to say anything only that he disagreed.
Technocratic-Fascism, the advanced fusion of the multinational technology-dominated corporatocracy with the authoritarian global and surveillance state, allows its initiates to believe they are a part of something bigger than themselves.
They can only determine that what they are doing is right and that the end justifies the means — all the while the march lockstep to the tune that one side is more villainous than the other.
Are we that obsessed with being so incontrovertibly politically righteous that we reject our own humanity?
This is evident of a destructive cult dynamic.
Clearly, both political parties are participating in the constant heist of human freedom.
The media knows that both sides need each other as enemies in order to assault each other mentally and physically.
Such l assaults secondarily require that all truthful motives remain hidden and obfuscated in a fog of weaponized storytelling.
It is in such a state of debilitating surrender that we are divided one subset “targeted” demographic against another; all herded into a wicked mental trap with one side thinking one thing, while the other side thinks something else – such that half of us hate the other and the other half hate the other right back.
People believe that the United States is too great of a nation to fail. It is erroneously believed that there are too many safeguards to prevent the philosophies of a Hitler, Stalin, or Mussolini to rise up on American soil.
We have blind faith that this country will never be steered in the wrong direction because we mistakenly believe that this system, that we are all a part of is based on the principles of God and God is on our side.. not on the side of heathen, the Nazi or Communist.
We need to bring into perspective the reality those who place themselves above us, will soon see their end too.
The whole machine is showing signs of corruption. This spans the entire political spectrum, from republican to democrat. We must understand that there is no other success or material wealth that can compensate for failure with our children or failure to love each other in times of strife.
No vaccine, green house carbon tax, or philosophical cause is going to save the souls on a planet that has already allowed for an apocalyptical breakdown to crush the consensus spirit.
It is the AntiLife Equation. It is that invisible algorithm that is pushing us towards extremist views. The technocrats are using us as useful operating systems, programmable right down to your DNA.
We know that once we begin to regard others as less than us…as something other than us, it is only a short step to unleashing our hate upon them, even to the point of becoming violent and criminal.
The technocratic establishment is counting on you to cast the first stone. They are counting on you to attack a protected class, or a certain race. They are counting on you to join collectives that value victimhood. They want you to believe in critical race theories that tell you that everything is systemically racist.
When President Biden was elected, we were told that things would be different and people still believe it, even though we are seeing the new normal is the same as it ever was.
The only way things are different is that our definitions of what is valuable and what is not, will fluidly shift to suit changing circumstances.
