I did not expect the response I got from my initial and then follow up post about the TV program, The Big Bang Theory. Both those posts are still getting regular hits and unusual amount of comments (for this blog, anything more than 10-15 comments is unusual).
I was surprised to find out how many manosphere regulars were very familiar/regular viewers of The Big Bang Theory. As I wrote earlier, there are so many aspects I could have covered regarding all the themes and subtexts conveyed subversively in the show -- like Commenter Carpe Oro points out, "I watch it with my wife and personally get a chuckle out of how PC it is regarding science and the typical "well ALL smart people know this is the TRUTH about how the world works" jive they sell."
The main point is that TBBT is simply one example of the entire purpose of TellAVision Programming as a social engineering tool.
As commenter Ubermind wrote: "There is no need to see more evil in BBT than in every common TV soap opera that has been around for ages."
Right. It's almost ALL evil. Nearly on every channel, on almost every show, you can find aspects of behavior, attitudes and ideas that promote human relationship dysfunction in some way or another.
Ubermind also commented:
"I would be cautious to call it a conspiracy (because it is bad to see conspiracy in everything even trough there is a conspiracy) it is just how the TV series need to operate to continue earning money."
I'll throw caution to the wind and just say it outright - TellAVision Programming is certainly one, big, giant conspiracy.
It is one of the most effective means of propagandizing We the Sheeple ever devised.
When you become a regular viewer of a program, you begin to subconsciously feel like you're personally involved with the characters on screen. The tone of their voice, their facial expressions....the regular exposure of constant viewing tricks your mind into thinking you actually KNOW the people on screen. Regular viewing simulates the familiarity that comes with interpersonal friendship with people in real life. This is how it "grows" on you...and how it influences you on a subconscious level.
I grew to "like" the characters on The Big Bang Theory. I looked forward to watching new episodes in the same way I look forward to attending an upcoming party in which I'll see all of my friends and acquaintances. This influence is precisely how social engineering to change attitudes and behavior is effected in our society.
As a Gen X-er, I can remember a time when curse words, nudity and gratuitous violence were verboten on network TV. Crudity, cruelty and familial dysfunction were not a regular feature of the old shows of the 80's. There were an abundance of positive, masculine characters, and women were not portrayed as super-empowered, ass-kicking, know-it-alls. All of these changes were gradually phased into TellAVision Programming over the course of decades.
I remember when it was SHOCKING that a TV sitcom had a single, mild curse word like BITCH was used, or a brief flash of nudity was shown...all my friends and I were talking about it in the schoolyard the next day like it was a major event that had occurred. And it was. Every initial instance added to the continual, gradual and incremental decline in standards and morality of society at large amongst we the sheeple.
What is the "grand conspiracy" here?
One need not concern themselves with trying to connect TellAVision Programming with NWO Agenda, Global Governance, the Illuminati, Reptilian Aliens, UFO's or the Federal Reserve to understand why I call it a "conspiracy."
Simple corporate-driven profit motive will do.
Our reality is that we do not live in a Capitalist, nor Socialist society...but a Corporatist one. Everything in the "First" world is shaped, manipulated and controlled by Corporations. Nameless, faceless, inhuman entities that treat us all nothing more than CONSUMERS and HUMAN RESOURCES who's sole purpose is to generate revenue streams to profit shareholders.
If there's one thing corporate marketing researchers know about human motivation, is that people who are unhappy and have no real meaningful direction in their lives are desperate to try and find that meaning...they are much more easily influenced into trying to "BUY" happiness by consuming products and services.
This, of course, never really works. Consuming products and services may give temporary happiness, but it will always dissipate and cause a person to try and buy even more happiness. Following the path of consumerism will consume you...which is exactly what THEY want us all to do.
This is why relationship dysfunction is an INTEGRAL part of TellAVision script writing. Emasculate men, pedestalize and masculinize women. Feature humorous dialog based on cruelty and put downs. Friends and lovers regularly insult each other...relationships never last, break ups, divorces...all of it is normalized by TellAVision Programming, to subversively influence the viewer to internalize such attitudes and behavior, and translate it into disconnected dysfunction in our personal lives.
The unhappiness modeled on screen turns into the unhappiness in your head which than transforms into the unhappiness manifest in your relationships with your family, friends and colleagues at work.
Unhappiness and fear are the most profitable mindsets for corporate marketing departments to capitalize on in trying to sell you something...sell you anything and everything.
It's overriding message is that we are all unhappy, life is shit, all people are crude, selfish and narcissistic animals....but you can be happy if you BUY something.
As I write this, the lyrics to one of my favorite Tool songs, Hooker With A Penis, echo in my mind:
All you read and wear
or see and hear on TV
is a product, begging for your
...so, shut up and BUY!!!!
BUY BUY BUY BUY BUY BUY BUY BUY
Kill your TV.
