Also one of the longest and most intricate (perhaps rivaled by his The Seven Beggars), this story's most intriguing culture is the one found in the Land of Riches. Using sharp metaphors, it perfectly describes Western society today.
Among other bizarre customs, the Land of Riches regards those with the highest financial standing as gods while middle class and poor people are categorized as different kinds of animals according to their financial status.
Chillingly, these "animals" can be sacrificed to the "gods."
But because wealth tends to cycle, this means that a "god" can turn into an "animal," and vice-versa. Bizarrely, even those considered animals refuse to rebel against the status quo...they even support it!
The land is rife with robbery and murder as "animals" struggle to become "gods" at any price.
Those victimized so horribly by the human-sacrificing elite still slobber over and hug the portraits of their deadly persecutors.
Only a handful of citizens from the lower classes are willing to consider the morals and beautiful truths suggested to them by the Prayer Leader.
And Hollywood culture perfectly represents this brutally materialistic land.
No, no, no, no.
Instead, people should be inspired to do teshuvah and to express the Divine image in which we were all created. In addition, Jews should be inspired to express their uniquely Jewish souls to their full brilliance.
The very people claiming to be victimized in Hollywood are mostly not such good people.
The only truly innocent ones are the ones who were brought into Hollywood culture as powerless children. Forced to grow up in such a putrid and traumatic environment, I don't blame them for how they turned out.
But all these actors, producers, scriptwriters, etc, whether male or female, chose to be part of a propaganda machine that has been the most powerful transformer of Western society from a Bible-based relatively moral and productive society to the increasingly vapid, confused, violent cesspool we're seeing today.
The values consistently expressed for decades in most movies and TV shows attack traditional values and morals while objectifying women and even girls in the worst way. All the participants in this industry have been mosser nefesh in voluntarily sacrificing themselves for terrible things.
Hollywood participants themselves (most of them, anyway) personally hold morally reprehensible views, such as:
- Pro-abortion rights
- same-gender free-for-all
- trans free-for-all
- fake (and therefore harmful) science
- irrational environmentalism
- bobble-headed social activism
- premarital & extramarital hanky-panky
- atheism & agnosticism
- and more.
And yes, their support of these views does kill people:
- AIDS, mostly spread by men (as opposed to blood transfusions), has killed a lot of people.
- Abortion certainly kills people.
- Head-in-the-clouds environmental policies have harmed people as have bobble-headed social activism, such as the anti-DDT movement which allowed malaria to rise up and kill untold numbers of children in Third World countries.
- If you support Muslim Philistinians against Jews in Israel, you automatically end up supporting FGM, domestic violence, terrorism, slavery, suicide-bombing, child-marriage, discrimination against women, and the slaughter of Jews.
- Giving money and support to terror organizations also kills people.
BTW, so-called "conservative" actors and screenwriters aren't much better.
You can be pro-life while being pro-nontraditional marriage.
You can believe in God and hate Jews.
I can't imagine a "conservative" actor or screenwriter who is genuinely conservative on ALL major issues.
Case in point: Hurricane Harvey was considered pro-Israel.
Only Violence Against ME is Bad
the widespread abuse and assault of children.
(They're STILL ignoring it, even as they're tromping on this guy for his behavior toward women.)
Child assault has been well-known for decades within Hollywood, while Corey Feldman brought it to general public attention years ago.
Did these same Harvey-bashers support Feldman back then? No.
Did they decide to get out of an industry that is so bestial and repulsive? No.
All these celebrities care about is their own fame and wealth.
They only care if they were harassed or assaulted in some way.
There is a term for people who think that pain is only bad when it happens to them personally, but are okay with it happening to others.
It's called sociopathy. (Or psychopathy.)
Oy, the Nebbuch Li'l Nazis and Communists!
We all know that Communism and Nazism saturated their respective entertainment medias with stories promoting their world views, right?
So how would you feel about a Nazi actress who claimed to have been violated 20 years ago by a pock-marked vat of blubber (whom we'll call Warvey Heinstein), but resented how she couldn't prosecute him for it for fear of being blacklisted by all the Nazi-sympathizing filmmakers?
"Had I blown the whistle back then," our hypothetical victim complains. "I never would've been able to star in films like Eugenics Girl or Aryan Beauties. I might still be dating my Nazi musician boyfriend who snorts cocaine and worships Satan rather than promoting my National-Socialist values via TV interviews and acting roles."
Or what about a hypothetical Communist actress who felt pressured into relations with Warvey Heinstein in order to star in her county's pro-Communist classic: Straight to Siberia, You Traitors!...?
"Everyone knew what he was like and what he was doing," she says. "But you just didn't have any choice. I mean, what else could I have done? Yes, I'm aware of the Plot against Jewish Doctors, the innocent people sent to Siberia, and yeah, that's kind of sad. But it's also kind of okay because why should poor people be punished by the existence of richer and more successful people? Except for me, of course. It's okay that I'm rich and successful because I have caring feelings toward poor people that other rich and successful people don't have. For example, I used my wealth and success to open up my own Lysenkoism research foundation. No offense to all those citizens suffering from Lysenkoism-induced famine. Love ya all sooo much, poor people!"
But Everyone Still Lived Happily Ever After
Gradually, the people (including the horrid "gods") follow the Prayer Leader, realize that money smells like excrement, and undergo spiritual cleansing and rectification until they all become squeaky clean.
(This is a vastly oversimplified summary of what happens, BTW.)
Then it ends with:
"...and they were all involved only in prayer, repentance, and good deeds."
I think we're seeing this process now.
