In his book Return of the Heroes, Australian writer Hal G. P. Colebatch observed that “the arts not only mirror social and cultural values, but are powerful forces to shape lives and behaviour.”
Colebatch, of course, is not the first person to make that observation. Indeed, it was an Italian Marxist named Antonio Gramsci (1891-1937) who, disagreeing with Karl Marx’s dictum that culture is merely a reflection of economic fundamentals, identified the critical importance of culture. Gramsci maintained that to attain political power, one must first transform a society’s culture and attain cultural hegemony. That is why Nazi Germany and the former Soviet Union had a government organ called the Ministry of Culture. This is why many governments today, including those of China and North Korea, retain such a ministry.
The Left have been transforming American culture for many decades now, by polluting and degrading pop culture and entertainment, via pop music, movies, and TV. Among the latter are cartoons, now called “adult animation,” the most puerile of which is Fox Broadcasting Company’s Family Guy — an animation sitcom created by the vile Seth MacFarlane, about the Griffins, a family consisting of a mom, an obese dad named Peter, 3 children, and their pet dog Brian who talks and spews obscenities. (See “Fox’s Family Guy portrays Jesus as sex-crazed adulterer“)
It is said that one method to transform U.S. culture is predictive programming. Here’s a definition:
If you go to this link, you’ll find some examples of predictive programming in movies.Predictive programming is a subtle form of psychological conditioning provided by the media to acquaint the public with planned societal changes to be implemented by TPTB.
If and when these changes are put through, the public will already be familiarized with them and will accept them as ‘natural progressions’, as Alan Watt (*) calls it; thus lessening any possible public resistance and commotion.
Predictive programming therefore may be considered as a veiled form of preemptive mass manipulation or mind control, courtesy of our puppet masters.
TV programs such as The Simpsons, another “adult animation,” and Family Guy also engage in predictive programming, the latest example of which is Family Guy‘s foreshadowing of the recent death of Supreme Court justice Antonin Scalia:
Family Guy also foreshadowed the Boston Marathon Bombing on April 15, 2013; actor Robin Williams’ alleged suicide in 2014; the bodies plunging from the Twin Towers on 9/11; the London bombing on July 7, 2005; and Bruce Jenner going “transgender”.
