We have seen the future, and it sucks.

The Top 10 Apocalypse Movies

29th August 2011

Read it.

In light of the devastation to our civilization directly resulting from the collectivist policies of our ruling elite, there’s probably never been a better time to look at one of Hollywood’s best-loved genres – the end-of-the-world movie.

I suspect that the popularity of such movies is a combination of people wondering how they would do in such situations — the same impulse that leads people to do role-playing and strategy games — and a celebration of how much better our lives are than what they could be (rather like sitting comfortably inside while watching a rip-roaring thunderstorm outside).

It’s hard to pin down exactly what films qualify for this category – one list of doomsday movies includes dozens of very different films, with plots ranging from the world blowing up to society suddenly changing dramatically into something unfamiliar, dystopian, and creepy.  A documentary about the last two-and-a-half years would qualify as the latter.

Indeed.

Sometimes society is teetering – think California – and sometimes it has fallen completely into the abyss – think Detroit.

And in such scenarios, the latent fascism never far below the surface of the ‘progressive’ movement usually comes to the fore.
