I, too, canceled Netflix.

Cuties is a line of fire. It’s a line too late- other lines should have been drawn sooner.  But there is no fire hot enough for the people insisting that anybody who has a problem with Cuties is just a far right neanderthol.

Cuties sexually exploits real 11 year old little girls, the actresses in it.  IT’s creator and film critics defending it insist that the theme of the movie is that this is bad.  But you don’t have to show us crotch shots of children in order to prove that this is a vile thing to do.  I am pretty sure that everybody claiming otherwise actually knows better and this is gaslighting of an especially contemptible, wicked sort, appealing to human vanity. Only rubes and secret pedos see a problem with this film seems to be the talking point that has gone out.  Nobody wants to be a rube, or to thought of as a closet pedo, so the weak minded succumb, or are supposed to.  I don’t see that happening much, tho, which is encouraging.

 

This is projection as well.  Whatever they accuse us of is what who they actually are.

Marc Bernays Randolph, co-founder and first CEO of Netflix, is a descendant of Edward Bernays, author of Propaganda (and Freud’s nephew, I believe).

In 1928, Edward Bernays wrote:

“The conscious and intelligent manipulation of the organized habits and opinions of the masses is an important element in democratic society. Those who manipulate this unseen mechanism of society constitute an invisible government which is the true ruling power of our country. We are governed, our minds are molded, our tastes formed, our ideas suggested, largely by men we have never heard of. This is a logical result of the way in which our democratic society is organized.

Our invisible governors are, in many cases, unaware of the identity of their fellow members in the inner cabinet. They govern us by their qualities of natural leadership, their ability to supply needed ideas and by their key position in the social structure. Whatever attitude one chooses to take toward this condition, it remains a fact that in almost every act of our daily lives, whether in the sphere of politics or business, in our social conduct or our ethical thinking, we are dominated by the relatively small number of persons who understand the mental processes and social patterns of the masses. It is they who pull the wires which control the public mind, who harness old social forces and contrive new ways to bind and guide the world.

No serious sociologist any longer believes that the voice of the people expresses any divine or specially wise and lofty idea. The voice of the people expresses the mind of the people, and that mind is made up for it by the group leaders in whom it believes and by those persons who understand the manipulation of public opinion. It is composed of inherited prejudices and symbols and cliches and verbal formulas supplied to them by the leaders.”

 

I strongly recommend The Marketing of Evil
