A Pandemic Movie as ‘Predictive Programming’
The book National Security Cinema: The Shocking New Evidence of Government Control in Hollywood detailed the authors’ “astonishing findings from trawling through thousands of new US military and intelligence documents obtained under the Freedom of Information Act.
The documents reveal for the first time the vast scale of US government control in Hollywood, including the ability to manipulate scripts or even prevent films too critical of the Pentagon from being made — not to mention influencing some of the most popular film franchises in recent years.”
I bring up that important book because of its relevance to one of the most popular movies being streamed now, during the COVID-19 “pandemic.” I question whether this eleven year old film on a viral pandemic was itself a co-creation or influenced by direct government control; certainly the creators admit to working with government experts. That film is Contagion, and it is currently undergoing an online viewing resurgence in light of the COVID-19 pandemic as millions are “sheltering in place” at home, without work, confused and afraid.
The Independent headline reads, “Contagion becomes one of most-watched films online in wake of coronavirus pandemic.” The New York Post article’s headline on the film’s recent popularity is titled, “How the movie ‘Contagion’ perfectly predicted the 2020 coronavirus crisis” but my question is there a more sinister agenda in play in what the film portrays?
The site Vigilant Citizen wrote a prescient article published on March 8th, 2012, when the film was released and the author discussed the potential motives of the creators and its implicit messages in an article “Contagion”: How Disaster Movies “Educate” the Masses. The first paragraph states an obvious truth:
Most people watch movies to be entertained. Well, I for one can say that there was absolutely nothing entertaining about Contagion. In fact, the only difference between this movie and state-sponsored educational movies shown in schools is that with Contagion you actually have to pay to be indoctrinated … and to see Matt Damon. During the cold war, students were shown videos instructing them to “Duck and Cover” in case of a nuclear attack. Contagion conditions the masses to expect martial law and to throw themselves at the first available vaccine in case of a crisis.
