(Article changed on January 9, 2013 at 14:29)This will be a short article. I need to explain the logic behind those numerous torture scenes presented in the recent war movies and series. The last one Zero Dark Thirty is a crown jewel of that but not that original. It becomes obvious that our entertainers need torture in their products; they consider it necessary for the reality of the subject matter.
If those folks think that way that would mean only one thing- that they presume that torture is actually a part of the real life, that it is an acceptable if not fully legal practice in certain professional communities and as such people who will watch those movies are expecting those things to happen, actually would not mind watching such scenes and most likely will be OK with them. Hollywood and networks are all about money; they would not introduce torture as a component if their control groups would not give a go. Torture thus works- it produces a guaranteed revenue.
There is also another aspect of torture, the one more important than money- torture fortifies a LIE.
We should start with a simple thing: our war movies are a bunch of lies, all of them. Those are lies in principle because of the simple fact that all those wars were and are abominations. Those were the wars of aggression on our side, the wars performed against the people who did us no harm and lived very far away, the wars where our armed forces were in fact loaned mercenaries; wars of cruelty beyond belief and of murderous stupidity. The proper world is DISHONORABLE- that is by unleashing those wars our
elite had dishonored our nation and from that moment ALL so- called works of art, whether books, pictures or movies dedicated to those wars are a DISHONORABLE trash. All of them- good, bad, sloppy, stupid, brilliant, long, short, series, movies, shows or special events-are all trash, have no artistic meaning and will be eventually discarded the same way as Nazi 'art' was discarded and now is looked at as some kind of a sick paraphernalia. We are witnessing nothing- those things are pure money- wasting machines. They serve a LIE.
But if they serve a LIE they by default need some kind of a mechanism which makes it plausible at least in the eyes of the beholder. In such situation the description olf simple, logical professional work falls apart- no real professional will be able to find a black cat in the dark room especially if there is no cat. The 9/11 was a sham, the official explanation is a total nonsense, Osama bin Laden for sure was a patsy and most likely died long ago form the kidney disease. As such the actual perception about a hunt for him which somehow lasted for 10 years is a LIE. LIE cannot be achieved as a plausible story by simple honest means. It needs a revelation, a singularity, something shocking but possible; it needs torture like religion needs a miracle. LIE is a religion of slaves and slave-owners, says the Russian writer A. Gorky. Religion cannot exist without miracles. Torture is an ideal source of miracles because it can produce WHATEVER THE TORTURER WANTS. In Stalin''s Russia there were officially millions of foreign spies arrested and incarcerated. They all confessed. Kamil Ikramov who was 15 when he was arrested testifies in his book that in the camps he saw many people of different types but none of them were a spy or even a paid agent. Whoever talked - all told the same story: that in the NKVD they WERE TOLD who they were, what kind of spies and for what country and how much money they were paid, etc. etc. They were tortured ONLY if they disagreed with those definitions or refused to tell on others. They were in fact tortured only if they refused to play along. Torture was never used to actually get information for the simple fact that those torturers KNEW what they wanted in advance. The God of LIE needed miracles and that mechanism was supplying them. Same in Hitler's Germany. Same in Mao's China. Now it is the same here, in the US. It is a very lubricated mechanism; it is always available at your service if you adopt a religion of LIE. It is a part of it. It is an evil miracle.
As soon as the the movie Zero Dark Thirty adopted by default LIE as its savior, torture became a necessity to make the picture complete. Logic required it. Without it, without a miracle the whole complex mosaic including the set of characters would fall apart. Also, the whole point of LIE is luring in the accomplices. The movie goes to the theaters, people pay for watchng it, critics debate, pundits, argue, awards are assigned, LIE GOES ON! Not life, no. Life was never there in the first place- it had been killed on that fateful day when we surrendered our honor to the LIE. No, there is no life there; those folks on the screen are zombies. But so are the folks in the theater, those who watch because FEAR makes them accept the LIE and their soul dies. Now we understand what those pseudo- arts are for: they are there to kill our souls.
SOS, folks. SAVE OUR SOULS. Don't go there. Don't pay your money for poison. You still can do that. It is easy. LIE cannot exist without true believers. Don't be ones. Just.. spit on it. Just say to your children ,"We don't do such things". None of us is perfect but we really do not need to be so afraid as the apostles of LIE tell us to be. The only people we really must be afraid of are them. They know that. They all know that.
I am not a religious man but I think there is only one feature in us that is there exactly to protect us from the truly Satanic religion of Lie. I call it a DIVINE DISCONTENT. It is the ability to feel a discontent and disgust every time you see a process of human suffering somehow being incorporated into a visibly normal process of human occupation as something necessary and legitimate. God- given reason in any of us figures out the faux play: we won't for instance torture an animal to find out about other animals or torture a child to find out about children's prank. We thus already know that we are deceived and only fear prevents us from disclosing it. It is a Satanic fear. Reject it. God is on the side of Light and Reason. We know what miracles are real and what are evil. We know. That's Divine.
