The Most Effective Weapon in History: Writing

The Most Effective Weapon in History: Writing

The famous phrase: "Today, the most important of the arts for us is cinema." Whether she was taken out of context or not, is now not so important. But the important thing is that with the help of cinema today you can not only entertain the population, but also form our point of view with you, a look at certain things. This is especially true for the younger generation. Indeed, often our children have a look at a specific process or event (including historical), formed precisely by the cinema. And the problem is that not always cinema carries the truth.

Today, cinema can not even be called art, but weapons. Moreover, there is an industry in the world where these weapons have been used for decades. Several generations of people have perceived and continue to perceive the world through the prism of Hollywood.

Thousands of films have been shot in Hollywood, many of which cause fair respect, and sometimes admiration. Acting game, directorial work, graphics, tricks. But a lot of Hollywood films - it's not even about the movie. This is a frank attempt to instill into the masses the point of view that today is decisive for representatives of the authorities and big business.

Not so long ago, an article appeared on Channel Day about the propaganda component of Hollywood’s work. Writer Dmitry Peretolchin reveals his view of the Hollywood film industry. In the material, such a movie is discussed as the most successful weapon in the history of civilization.

    Cinema and the Kremlin, new series.
    The news reports - "Utilities tariffs will rise from July, despite the pandemic."
    I voted for this power and for its amendments - PAYMENTS.
    That's the whole Hollywood.

      I voted for this power and for its amendments - PAYMENTS.

      And if you voted against - also pay, did not vote at all - pay again. Some Case is buggy.

        Don't like paying? Then let's go and change the "rules of the game". And if we don't want to change anything, then why be indignant then? laughing

          "So let's drink to match our desires with our capabilities!" drinks laughing

          go and change the "rules of the game"
          Boris, you, as a consistent supporter of the current government, be careful with expressions. The ability to change the rules of the game through coins (elections) is blocked, so the swords remain.

            Interestingly, the call for the abolition of private ownership of the means of production and the transition from commodity to social type of production is unconstitutional?

      Here it is, the exact definition of "the flight of American astronauts to the moon" - concocted in Hollywood by Kubrick.

          Indians, too ... If anyone is interested, Puchkov-Goblin has a video on this subject with pictures. But would they fly to the moon if the USSR did not lash them over the croup?
          In my opinion, a realistic forecast is given there that there will be no manned flight to Mars for the next 10 years, because there is no need. Abydna ... crying

        But what, the conversation is about raising prices? You didn’t get the topic wrong: in the elderberry garden, and in Kiev, uncle? Or just something to blurt out?

          I don’t, but did you remember the regular increase in housing and communal services tariffs? Every year happens, there is a crisis, there is no crisis. That's all ... The mandatory requirement of the IMF by the way.

      Hollywood is under the full control of the CIA, the FBI and the Ministry of Defense, which form this very worldview.

    In my opinion, the most effective weapon in history is the teacher's rod, which is used to drive in "world perception." Everything else is secondary.

    The main thing is fees, the main thing is money. They think about some kind of ideology last. If we watched "Red Heat", then in America nobody needed it. If "Karl Marx, Young Years" was filmed, who watched it? And who could see "rest"? The film must be watchable. I remember Dostoevsky began to be praised for his ideological works, he just went crazy with such glory, and sent everyone. I just wrote what got into my head, I thought about ideas last, I have to earn money.

      I remember Dostoevsky began to be praised for his ideological works, he simply became fucked by such glory, and sent everyone.

      In my opinion, not quite like that.
      Dostoevsky was reproached for the very large number of characters that were present in his books, the whole ideology of Dostoevsky's books is demons in the flesh, great praise, of course, here you can not get from the public.
      Fyodor Mikhailovich, almost his entire conscious life was tormented by lack of money, and in captivity he had to send all his creditors out of captivity and travel around Europe, fleeing from them.

    Tales to tell, hang noodles on the ears ... the ruling learned EVERYWHERE !!!
    Now look at the stripes, is it now controlled chaos, for the sake of and at the direction of someone specific ???
    Everything will end, as if by magic, when the goal is achieved ???
    Very likely ... in November we’ll see how and there. True, it is interesting who guessed and who didn’t.

    In a strange way, virtual personalities affect political alignment.
    These are former teachers, writers, journalists, directors, actors, and in general the whole spectrum of people far from the economy.

      What's so surprising? The writer wrote a book - millions read it. The director put the film - millions watched it. The journalist squeezed an article in an online newspaper - millions saw it. And the scientist published a scientific article in a small-circulation journal - a hundred people read it, of which ninety understood little.

    In fact, in no volume of the Complete Works of Lenin you will not find a phrase about cinema - the most important of all arts. She was taken from the memoirs of Lunacharsky, supposedly Lenin told him that. And it was a question of documentary (not fiction) cinema, and it was most important for agitation and propaganda of the ideas of Bolshevism.

    The most effective weapon in history is to see what and how your father does. If you accept it, you will take an example from him, if you do not accept it, you will try to do otherwise. And films ... today is one film, tomorrow is another. How many people began to make faces like Jim Carrey, or walk as dirty and unwashed as cowboys in westerns?
    Of all this Hollywood, I was most impressed by the little walk-through episode in the 1952 film "Aircraft Carrier". (Flat Top). Two or three admirals in consultants, everything is almost authentic, a film about the war with the Japanese. After the "zero" raid during the repair of the wooden cover of the take-off deck, the sailors in the film use a manual electric circulator - according to the film it is 1943 or 1944. There was no emphasis on this, the instrument appeared in the frame for a few seconds, but ... request A good role model in general. At least in management, at least in strong-willed aspirations, at least in moral examples (and there are such films, even the same "Train to Yuma"). In this example, all that Hollywood can be used as a guide to good examples of good things, without wasting it on ideological objections and counter-propaganda. According to A.V. Suvorov: "Choose your idol. Imitate him. Catch him. Overtake him. Glory to you!" It's not that if you praise Hollywood, it means you don’t like Russian films, no. I don’t praise, and I definitely love Russian films. BUT it's like in a puddle you can see the dirt, but you can moon and stars. Since we sometimes — or more importantly — our children — sometimes slip Hollywood products, we need to take those grains of good that are in that big pile. Something like this.

    I noticed that the older you get, the less you are satisfied with all this tinsel. I used to watch films from 1932-1940. Now I'm watching black and white. Naive? Yes. But there the lie is less monstrous than now.

    I used to watch how much was spent on a particular movie, and what are the box office receipts. This is very important. Because advertising works for moneybags.

    Frances Saunders: CIA and the world of art. The cultural front of the cold war.

    The book by British journalist and documentary filmmaker Frances Stonor Saunders presents for the first time shocking evidence of CIA manipulation of cultural policy during the Cold War. Based on meticulously collected archival information, the author describes the activities of the CIA in financing and coordinating left-wing intellectuals and cultural figures in Western Europe and the United States in order to alienate the intelligentsia from left-wing ideas, persuade them to fight against the USSR and instill sympathy for the "American way." The CIA-sponsored Congress for Cultural Freedom, with offices in 35 countries, was the main mechanism and platform for this work, which involved such famous writers and philosophers as Raymond Aron, André Malraux, Arthur Koestler, George Orwell and many others. The book is especially relevant in the context of developing methods of "soft power" in Russia: the author reveals the details of who and how built the foundation of the "soft power" of the United States

    Hello comrades! I recommend reading: S. Kara-Murza "Manipulation of consciousness". I myself love the genre "Science Fiction", but I do not disdain other genres either, fortunately, smart TV allows. I noticed one peculiarity: budget films of the West are for zombifying the population. High-budget - a program for the future. Maybe I'm wrong, but you can watch films of the past and present in steps. Their political correctness and double standards are also changing. One thing remains unchanged: WE, the enemies of the West, remain so to this day.
