“See the world they came from—there is no green there. They killed their mother, and they’re gonna do the same here. ...unless we stop them.” “Avatar” hero, Jake Sully/Toruk Makto, referring to the enemy—humanity
“Isn’t the only hope for the planet that the industrialized civilizations collapse? Isn’t it our responsibility to bring that about?” —Maurice Strong: Head of the UN’s 1992 Earth Summit where Agenda 21 was introduced Link
“The common enemy of humanity is man. In searching for a new enemy to unite us, we came up with the idea that pollution, the threat of global warming, water shortages, famine and the like would fit the bill.” —From “The First Global Revolution,” a Club of Rome (CoR) publication, 1990 Link
Yes, I know, writing about James Cameron’s movie “Avatar” isn’t exactly “cutting edge”—the film’s been out for almost half-a-year. But I was forewarned of its Far Left slant, and I refused to pay money to see it in a theater, subsequently, I’ve only recently viewed it on a rental DVD. So, forgive me my tardiness, if you will.
On the surface it’s a rather mundane “boy meets girl, boy loses girl, boy gets girl back,” action/adventure flick. What sets it apart from the run-of-the-mill examples of the genre, is its beautiful graphics; which combined with the film’s storyline, make for cleverly compelling eco-propaganda. And eco-propaganda is, of course, also Far Left anti-capitalism/anti-democracy/anti-free enterprise, Marxist/Fascist propaganda. Link
“A spoonful of sugar makes the medicine go down,” and Cameron piles on the sweetness in “Avatar.” It’s like a honey coated checklist of Far Left talking points.
Capitalism is evil—check. Western civilization is evil (heck, civilization period, is evil)—check. Tribalism is great—check. God is bad, but Mother Earth (Gaia) is good—check. Technology is evil—check. Luddite-style eco-Marxism is good—check. Free enterprise and individualism is bad—check. Only intelligent caring thoughtful liberals know what’s good for the environment—check. Militaristic right-wing troglodytes, only want to “rape, pillage, and burn”—check. And on it goes.
If you’re an indoctrinated member of the party faithful or simply gullible, then “Avatar” will no doubt seem to be innocent enough. But if you’re aware of the Marxist/Fascist push for world domination (and an ever-growing number of people are), then Cameron’s movie is anything but innocent. Link
In a nutshell, the film’s storyline goes like this: Jake Sully, a wounded soldier, is sent to the planet Pandora in the year 2154, because he’s a genetic match for a Pandoran avatar. Avatars are human-controlled replicas of the humanoid natives of Pandora, the Na’vi. The humans hope to use the avatars to better understand (i.e. exploit) the Na’vi, as they (the humans) mine Pandora for the valuable substance, unobtanium.
To make a long story short, as a Na’vi avatar, Jake Sully “sees the light,” and sides with the planet-worshiping Na’vi, against the greed-driven humans. In a showdown at the film’s conclusion, the spiritually evolved, morally advanced Na’vi tribes, defeat the technologically superior, but spiritually bankrupt, morally corrupt, humans. Hurrah! Roll the credits.
It’s worth noting that Tribalism is one of the many types of doctrines that fall under the Far Left umbrella of Collectivism—along with Communism, Fascism, Marxism, Fabianism, Communitarianism, Statism, etc. In all of these “isms” the individual is always of secondary importance, subservient to the “good of the tribe,” or the “general will.”
The Big Lie behind all of these “isms,” is that collectivism is only good for you. The wannabe-elites that promulgate these “isms” positively celebrate individualism, when it comes to themselves. The Global Elites are obsessed with power, ruling, acquisition, and wealth. Link
“Avatar” promotes the tribe’s general will, even as it celebrates the individualism of the main protagonist. Typical left-wing doublespeak, but then, you’ll never hear me accuse the Far Left of philosophical clarity. Link
There are a number of areas of interest in “Avatar” that can be profitably explored, but I just want to mention a couple in passing.
The term “noble savage” was first popularized by Jean Rousseau (1712-1778), shortly before the French Revolution. Rousseau’s doctrines were adopted with a vengeance by that period’s Far Left ideologues, and aspects of his ideas have remained staples of the Left to this day. “Avatar” is but the most recent example of the popularizing of Rousseau’s anti-establishment screed.
Besides noting the long inglorious history behind “Avatar,” I also wish to point out the subtle misanthropic tone that permeates the movie. It is no accident that the Na’vi resemble sexy felines, more than say—humans. In case you haven’t noticed, eco-Marxists are not especially fond of humans. Link
Hence the TV shows on “life after people,” and environmentalists carrying signs saying “Save the planet—kill yourself.” They’re quite serious, you know.
A little over a year ago the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) officially declared carbon dioxide (CO2) to be a pollutant. Every time a human exhales, they release CO2 into the atmosphere—therefore, simply by living, we’re polluting the planet. So they say. Link
It’s all a load of rubbish, of course, but these eco-Marxist scam artists will get away with their bulls—t, unless “we the people” expose the lies, and shine the light of truth on these manipulative weasels. Link
Rubbish though it be, if you doubt the effectiveness of this eco-propaganda, then I suggest that you check out an Internet chat-room or two, dedicated to “Avatar” Link
I’ll leave you with a well known verse I enjoy: “I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; marvelous are Your works, and that my soul knows very well.” Psalms 139:14 NKJV
