The Disney Follow-Up Post
Well, I already knew that there are tons of smarter people out there who should be writing blogs rather than (or at least along with) me. My last post was so rushed and I was so distracted when I was writing it, that I went back later and read it and wondered if I’d made any of the points I’d been thinking about when I originally decided to write about it. But anyway, I wanted to write a follow-up to that post for the sake of a few things I said that need clarification, and a few things I didn’t say that definitely should have been said, if I’d had the clarity of thought to say them. 😉 I guess I need to quit trying to cram in last-minute blogging on Fridays when I’m trying to tie everything up at the office.
For starters, I do want to address the statement about factors that can lead to violent behavior later in life (such as history of abuse, mental illness, addictions, violent home life, neglect, etc); this might have sounded a little stereotypical. A lot of people with D.I.D. could cite several (or all) of those factors in their history but that doesn’t mean they don’t grow into some of the most creative, compassionate, tenacious, beautiful, and resilient people on earth who never have and never will do anything illegal or intentionally harmful to another being.
So I would not want to give the impression in any way that I was stating that those things guarantee bad decisions. And that, I think, is the crux of the whole subject anyway; no matter where we come from, we decide what we want to do, and then we do it. This is what differentiates survivors who grow up and heal and do positive things with their lives, from survivors who grow up, don’t heal, and do negative things with their lives: their choices. So I thought that was worth clarifying, because when I went back and read it, the lack of distinction bothered me.
Secondly, I didn’t really address the question very well as to why Disney (and/or other media) would bother putting out so much material that has subliminal messaging in it if it was certain to be ineffective on a large portion of the population. I don’t think “ineffective” is necessarily the right word, but perhaps “not immediately effective.” These people are future-oriented. They have a large agenda and they are willing to wait for it, laying down their foundation brick by brick. One of my Facebook friends posted this extremely insightful comment, with which I couldn’t agree more…
“There are different levels of programming. Movies can and do play an important part in a general mind-control programming of the masses. And I’m not talking about turning normal people into psychopathic killers… lol But a general type of “programming” that drives social change over time, for instance. It’s a constant inundation of propaganda (in some instances) that can change a person’s overall world view, and this can be seen in the gradual change of social norms over time within society at large. Change can be for the better, though, by bringing awareness to important topics of the day.
Bottom line, companies spend billions of dollars yearly on advertising and producing movies because it works. And I certainly agree with your last sentence (nearly the last… lol): balance. I’m not against Disney movies because I’m scared they are going to turn society or my children or myself into mind-controlled zombies… sort of. lol (depends on what we agree “zombie” means… haha!) I’m against Disney movies (generally speaking) because of the agenda they drive home with every single movie they put out. EVERYTHING is sexualized now, and that is disturbing to me! The blatant satanic-type of programming found in so many movies now days — from seemingly innocuous Illuminati symbols to the entire subject or topic of the film — bothers me. Another thing that really bothers me about Disney, is their propensity to take positive parental influences out of the lives of the characters they show onscreen. And it’s not just Disney, but Disney puts out so many children’s movies that it bothers me that these things are being taught to impressionable children. It’s just that much more CRAP to have to deprogram themselves from when they grow older and hopefully get a few more smarticles. lol
Eh… that’s my two cents. There are those who don’t care about these things, and that’s their opinion. But these things bother me.”
I think her point about the subtle ways these messages can bring about social change over a longer period of time is spot on. Even though most people will overtly miss the sexual imagery in the Disney movies, these types of messages are going into our brains at some level. I don’t even need to cite research for you to know that children these days are talking about, thinking about, playing around with, and being taught about sex at younger and younger ages.
I’m not going to say Disney is the only or even main culprit for this (in their cartoons, anyway), but media as a whole certainly is, to a very large degree. Disney may choose to hide their imagery more than others, but they’re definitely still on the same page, writing the same book.
Cartoons aside, taking some of Disney’s most famous actresses and watching the progression of the girl’s maturation from an innocent child actress into a sultry, seductive sex symbol (sometimes apparently overnight) should remove any remaining doubt as to what path Disney is suggesting to their young female fans. Britney Spears, Miley Cyrus, Christina Aguilera, and Selena Gomez would be some of the biggest examples just off the top of my head.
If they gain tons of fans while these actresses are still “little girls” – even fans who are around the same age who are growing up at the same time – they have hooked their next generation of girls who want to follow in the footsteps of these starlets, from emulating their clothes, their behavior, and their approach to life as indicated by whatever the news reports are currently sensationalizing. As a mature adult, I can recognize the foolishness of Hollywood actresses’ many affairs, breakups, rebound relationships, etc. But as a young tween or teenager I don’t think it’s that far-fetched to see young girls viewing these types of events and interpreting them as being a part of a terribly melodramatic, fulfilling and exciting life. Kids just don’t always have the judgment or perspective to recognize the trade-off (read: misery) that comes with it.
As far as the Satanic imagery, I would propose that their goal is desensitization. Since a lot of people don’t even know what they’re looking at, and don’t realize that the symbols they’re seeing are representative of Illuminati NWO/Satanism/Freemasonry, my opinion is that Disney’s goal is to get these symbols put in the public eye so much and so often that they’re barely noteworthy. This will eventually (I’m guessing sooner rather than later, based on current media) allow people who follow these practices and support these groups’ agendas to move about much more publicly and freely with their signs, symbols, and propaganda right under the common people’s noses because the public will be so used to seeing it, they don’t care anymore.
As an example of one way these symbols could be used in public without the public’s suspicion, one of my relatives (now deceased) used to relate to me stories of the Freemason network that existed in the small hometown in which I was born. They told me of being in court in which someone who practiced Freemasonry was being tried for a crime, knowing that the presiding judge was also a Freemason. All they needed to do, said my relative, was flash a small, barely-noticeable hand signal to the judge. It would be nearly imperceptible to anyone else. But when they saw it, the judge would know that person was a Freemason and would make sure they were acquitted of the charges, or at the very least, a mis-trial was declared. My relative said it happened numerous times. So getting the symbols out there for desensitization of the masses is not an insignificant part of the agenda.
As for those who are programmed already, Disney movies serve to keep them in that dissociated state. The imagery, the triggers, and the messages reinforce whatever was already put in place to ensure that they stay obedient to the programming.
I hope this post made more complete sense than the last one… Cheers. ~J8
