Follow-Up: Martin Armstrong’s Quote For The Week

Before I really get going for the week on Survival And Prosperity, after I published the “Quote For The Week” Monday- the one from economist Martin Armstrong about a “lack of recent reports of UFO sightings or abduction” in this goofy election year- I couldn’t help but remember my 1992-93 winter break from college where I invited a bunch of buddies up to my family’s cabin in Wisconsin. As the host, I got to pick the VHS movies to watch, with one of them being the 1988 John Carpenter sci-fi film They Live starring the late “Rowdy” Roddy Piper of pro wrestling fame. From Melissa Portell on the IMDB website:

Nada, a down-on-his-luck construction worker, discovers a pair of special sunglasses. Wearing them, he is able to see the world as it really is: people being bombarded by media and government with messages like “Stay Asleep”, “No Imagination”, “Submit to Authority”. Even scarier is that he is able to see that some usually normal-looking people are in fact ugly aliens in charge of the massive campaign to keep humans subdued.

(Editor’s note: Bold added for emphasis)

My friends had never heard of the flick. But I had already seen it. And the one part of the movie that really stood out for me (and which I thought my buddies would appreciate) was the fight scene where Piper (Nada) tries to get actor Keith David to wear the “special” sunglasses:


“They Live (2/4) They Live Fight Scene – FULL (Explicit Language) (1988)”
YouTube Video

In my opinion, one of the best fight sequences ever to grace the “Silver Screen.” And my guests wholeheartedly agreed as well.

In 1992, the message that movie conveyed was somewhat lost on us meathead college boys (the beer certainly didn’t help either).

Some twenty-three years later, sans the alien bit, I can’t help but be a little creeped out by the resemblance between America of 2016 and Carpenter’s nightmarish setting:

The world as it really is: people being bombarded by media and government with messages like “Stay Asleep”, “No Imagination”, “Submit to Authority”…

Funny?

I don’t know about you, but that segment really started getting disturbing for me around the minute mark.

Live long and prosper… if you can.
