This blogger sees Netflix in the same way “Godfather”, Vito Corleone, viewed his enemies. In other words, I keep my books and blogs close, but television and movies closer. This is because social narratives are the new religion. As I’ve stated before in previous articles, I have a love-hate relationship with Netflix. It offers a convenient and affordable access to an impressive library of film and documentaries – but not without its cultural bias. It’s like anything else, buyer beware; or, rather, I simply slice off the meat and leave the bones when it comes to infotainment.
Sure, Netflix is the home of the Obamas and the Obama Administration’s former National Security Advisor, Susan Rice; so it’s no surprise why the company’s subscriber base is being programmed into Cultural Marxism, totalitarian Agenda 21 mandated Gaia worship and global taxation schemes. Netflix, by and large, programs people with Progressivism in the relative safety and comfort of their own homes. Yet, at the same time, I can cook up some homemade popcorn and conduct my research without spending $60 at the movie theater; back when there were movie theaters, of course.
In any event, I received a hat-tip from one of my progeny regarding a Netflix documentary entitled “The Social Dilemma”. The company’s website identifies the production as a “documentary-drama hybrid” that “explores the dangerous human impact of social networking, with tech experts sounding the alarm on their own creations”.
The hybrid presentation included interviews of, mostly, techno whiz kids who designed software purposed to addict the masses to apps such as Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter, et al, and paired to a background narrative of a young Caucasian boy being unintentionally politically radicalized by algorithms designed to increase the profits of technology corporations.
In the documentary segments, the experts and former tech firm employees discussed the negative societal impacts of their creations while acknowledging their good intentions. For example, the co-inventor of the Facebook “Like” Button said he initially believed the widget would deliver more positivity into the universe; as opposed to increasing middle-school children’s social anxiety and despair.
In the film, the continuing fragmentation of America was attributed to separate groups of online users seeing different news feeds on their chosen online platforms. The reasons for the diverse digital presentations were attributed to algorithms and, even, artificial intelligence, interpreting the data sets of online users and then prompting new clickbait meant to engage them for longer intervals –and all solely in the pursuit of profits.
In fact, when one tech expert-turned-whistleblower was asked to state his greatest fear regarding the ultimate outcome of the aberrant algorithms and errant A.I., he said: “Civil war.” And, that is, fundamentally, the gist of “The Social Dilemma” (TSD): The natural pursuit of profits by tech companies sowing a technological wind of which western societies are now reaping the whirlwind.
Or, stated another way, TSD is a whitewash for the surveillance state.
In truth, the globalist elite have long planned the demise of the northern hemisphere’s (formerly) capitalist/industrial societies so a cashless (Marxist) system can rise from the ashes.
And if 2020 vision has made anything clear it is this: Free markets and the U.S. Constitution are gone baby gone. They have, instead, been replaced by economic and social tyranny. Yet, Netflix’s TSD would have us believe the fracturing of American society evolved as a result of Facebook’s news feeds and fake news.
Ironically, I received the following this week from someone who actually saw it on Facebook:
If you go to the southwest desert and catch 100 red fire ants as well as 100 large black ants and put them in a jar, at first, nothing will happen
However, if you violently shake the jar and dump them back on the ground the ants will fight until they eventually kill each other
The thing is, the red ants think the black ants are the enemy and vice versa, when in reality, the real enemy is the person who shook the jar
This is exactly what’s happening in society today:
Liberal vs Conservative
Black vs White
Pro Mask vs Anti Mask
The real question we need to be asking ourselves is who is shaking the jar and why??
Will ants behave as described in such circumstances? Obviously, that’s not the point. The point is who is actually fracturing the western societies today and why this is happening. According to Netflix’s TSD, our current societal shaking is merely an inadvertent byproduct of deviant software tweaked to maximize the profits of tech companies. Furthermore, according to the TSD tech “experts”, any other view of the societal “shaking” is the result of misguided faith in fake news and internet conspiracy theories.
Well, here’s a newsflash for the hi-tech whiz-kid whistleblowers: If the plans were published by the globalists decades ago… and they’ve since come to pass, then the conspiracies were more than just theories. And, certainly, fake news is defined by those promoting diverse media feeds on popular online platforms. Except those fooled still don’t understand the deception – or that the manipulation was not naturally occurring in the pursuit of profit; it was always part of the plan.
Here are some other “issues” with the Netflix “docudrama”:
Most internet users are far more active, and less passively manipulated, than the TSD “experts” presume.
Those interviewed in the film claimed algorithms direct content as a means to reinforce existing worldviews when, in fact, the content and algorithms are designed to shape specific ideas and, even, entire belief systems.
TSD, via Netflix programming, seemingly, promotes leftist agendas and dog whistles like climate change and fake news. At the same time, the documentary delegitimized Pizzagate and skepticism of COVID-19 propaganda. It is a fact that Pizzagate derived from actual e-mails released by Wikileaks and it’s true that widely disseminated COVID-19 agitprop has been debunked by respected medical professionals.
TSD identified Facebook as a primary facilitator of “fake news” and “conspiracies” like Pizzagate, Russian Facebook ads in the 2016 election, flat-earth theory, and COVID skepticism. Yet TSD completely ignored social media’s shameless propagation of the now-discredited Russian Collusion Hoax and the U.S. Democratic Party’s Ukrainian Impeachment gaslighting.
So why the blatant bias? Because Netflix is programming, pure and simple.
