What is it about Hollywood that causes them to support Oppression?
On the heals of Sean Penn openly campaigning for Hugo Chavez it all came clear.
It’s not the wealth itself, it’s how quickly it is realized.
For years I thought Liberal Hollywood was just a manifestation of “rich guilt”. I thought it was the relative small amount of work for huge sums of pay that laid the foundation for such guilt. I also believed it was group think and a desire to belong. (Pull out your Eric Hoffer here.) I found myriad examples within Liberal Hollywood that seemed to reinforce my theory. But then I started paying attention to lottery winners… and a new theory emerged.
Lottery winners don’t seem to suffer from such “rich guilt” or an overwhelming want “to belong” yet they too make incredibly poor decisions and do stupid things. This mirror’s the hollywood actors and even sports stars, many of whom end up destitute by the time they are late in life.
My theory now proposes that it is the Acceleration of Wealth that lends to these people finding themselves with little ability to reason. It is why they support dictators, communists, champion fantasy fears like inoculations causing autism, buy things they can’t afford, go bankrupt, go to strip clubs and tell the strippers they keep all their money in their glove box… etc.
Neither party had to make the strategic decisions over extended periods of time, experiencing both imposters triumph and disaster. The actors “have people for that” and the lottery winners had the clerk at the convenience store. Both miss out on the experience that leads to success for most of us.
If you think about it, some of the most virulent supporters of bad ideas have been successful actors. In fact most of those actors have enjoyed success since they were very young. Pick any leftist actor and look up their bio. IMBD is a good place to start. Once the money starts flowing they are relieved of having to make their own decisions regarding paths that lead to more wealth… they have others who handle those things. For many of them, even though they change their names, have their actor parent’s “people” for that. These examples are products of Generational Accelerated Wealth.
Keep in mind what is required of an actor. To be a Professional Liar you must have an over-active relationship with fantasy and a tinge of sociopathy if you hope to win any awards. This does not diminish the need of a good memory and a decent work ethic… but does not lend to any depth of ideological comprehension or intellectual curiosity.
I still believe group think plays a major role. However, it is only when success arrives that the communal thinking sets in. Through pure “socialist evolutionary” means those actors chosen to accelerate their careers are rewarded for relocating to where the movies are made. Subsequently they are surrounded, then insulated, by others who share the same experience. It is truly a petri dish for Liberal indoctrination. If all you hear all day long is how you are brilliant and special in every way, it’s easy to understand how these actors end up the way they are.
What’s sad is when you take the time to think about what they could do if they understood Capitalism.
Keep in mind, I have no problem with their Accelerated Wealth. But there is a line. I have more respect for the guy going to the strip club and offering himself up to be robbed, as he is only hurting himself. It’s the actor who is running around South America promoting the oppression, imprisonment and ultimately the death of those seeking liberty and freedom that should truly be loathed as they are hurting everybody.
So it’s not the money… it’s just that it comes very quickly once it starts, robbing these individuals of life’s lessons. Yes… they’re victims. Poor, poor victims. It appears I’ve had too much to drink… I’m slurring my train of thought…
