[So there's this article over at Filmthreat. It's an Entertainment/Movie Review site in case you haven't heard of it. The article is about a movie from 1967. 'Scrooge McDuck, and Money,' it's called, by Phil Hall. Here is the link. http://www.filmthreat.com/index.php?section=features&Id=2326. I can promise you that Tim Geithner watched it as a boy. It's probably the single greatest inspiration in his life, beyond wanting to emulate his other flesh-and-black-blooded hero, Hungarian Communist and Bank-Breaker, George Soros.
Below is the comment I attempted to post on Filmthreat in response to the review of Scrooge. Some might say I'm making too much of this. But I say, when else would one get the opportunity to decry banking oligarchs, reckless spending, Disney, and a talking duck in spats, all at the same time. You've got to pick your battles, and this was one I didn't want to pass by.]
I have already written this comment, but it's not being posted, perhaps for obvious reasons. See if you can guess why. You stay in Wonderland and I show you how deep the mouse-hole goes.
Disney was, is, and will remain, the propaganda arm for a small sect of global oligarchs. World Domineers and Financiers. That's well known, or should be by now. They're still at it today. We should all comprehend that too.
I haven't seen 'The Spirit of '43' so I'll take your word that it's propaganda. But I have seen 'Uncle Scrooge and Money.' Seen through it. It seems to follow a theme passed down from Goebbels, of banking cartels controlling everyone through everything. Was the script provided to the animators from the FED, or the Dept. of the Treasury? We may never know the source, but the story is crafted to deceive the viewer; really to indoctrinate children. There are lessons to take from it, more so today than in 1967.
And what is the nugget of truth at the core of this rhyming rhetoric? It's probably not their intended message, but I like to think we're on to them now. The zillionaire on his dragon's hoard of lucre expects the little guys to offer their two dollars for the sake of internationalism and foreign adventures. Yeah, that's what it is. Oh, and to pay him for the privilege. Seriously, was this released to the public on May 1st, International Workers Day (significantly, also Walpurgus for those interested in such things).
I say it was a sad day when kids absorbed this celluloid into their bodies. It was fat they could not shed, and carry to this day. National sovereignty and financial capital are the lifeblood of this nation. They each took a hit in this film, for it is really war by other means. They're being attacked again; the kids, the country, and the coin.
At a time of print-and-borrow-and-tax-and-spend-spend-spend economics, when a billion dollars is used like waste paper, the visualization of its sheer size would probably be a depressing sight. So too is the knowledge this scheme persists. Youth entertainment has a slick new veneer, especially from Disney, and the agenda is alive. Some is subtle, but most of their work is like this film-cloyingly transparent, and best left in the forgotten past. Who would have thought the flickering images would be more harmful than the buttery popcorn and soda. Often, it can be.
That's my two cents worth. And it cost you nothing.
