ClandesTime-Logo-Rectangle

From Spy Culture:

I welcome back Pearse Redmond to talk about the sitcom Silicon Valley, which has just finished its second season.  Unlike most of the media we discuss on ClandesTime, this show was not state-sponsored, but it is inspired by real people and real events.  We talked about the main characters and what they represent, as well as the underlying themes including transhumanism and corporate cults.

Porkins Policy Radio ep. 33 Snowpiercer

On this installment of Porkins Policy Radio I was joined by Aaron Franz and Adam, co-hosts of Themes and Memes, for a discussion of the sci-fi thriller film Snowpiercer.  Dealing with the aftermath of a geo-engineering disaster, the surviving population of Earth lives on a highly advanced train that circles the world once a year.  While the rich and powerful live in the front in perpetual luxury, the tail section is composed of the poor who plot a revolution to take over control of the train.  Aaron, Adam and I break down many of the interesting themes and messages that this movie introduces.  We take a look at the inclusion of chemtrails in the beginning of the movie, and at how this is part of an ongoing trend in Hollywood to inject conspiracy-culture elements into mainstream cinema.  We move on to the socioeconomic model that Snowpiercer presents, as well as the fascist-corporatist world that the film imagines.  We then take a look at the transhumanist aspects of this film, namely the worship of the “eternal engine,” as well as the idea of a “train” in general.  Later we consider the core theme in this film: the idea of revolution.  The three of us explore how the notion of revolution is popping up more and more in contemporary films, and how Snowpiercer differs in the cookie cutter version Hollywood usually presents.  We go into depth about how the revolution in this film has been completely orchestrated by the evil Wilford, who operates the Snowpiercer in order to fulfill his eugenics agenda.  We focus on how the film puts the audience in a difficult situation, where it begins to question its own morals and philosophy in the face of the complete destruction of mankind.  We end the conversation by discussing the death/re-birth ritual that is the culmination of the movie, and at whom this may be targeted.
