Inherit the Dust

Liberalism creates poverty. Always has, always will.

It doesn’t accidentally or tangentially create poverty. It directly and purposefully creates poverty.

Hundreds of years past its first impulses (which weren’t much better) modern liberalism is designed to create the daydream of utopia. In and of itself this is ridiculous and childish, but at least superficially a ‘good fantasy’ until one realizes they want to build a future of forced equality, stripped of standards, and free from any hint of judgment, responsibility or accountability.

It is the fevered nonsense, the delirium of people who feel without wisdom and categorically, militantly and pridefully refuse to see Mankind for what he is and what he requires to build civilization.

A liberal friend asked me recently: “I know you are conservative. So, which do you think is worse: liberalism or terror-driven militant Islam?”

I responded “Liberalism.”

He was, I have to say, a little shocked. “Really?” he asked. “How can you think that?”

“Because liberalism will adamantly prevent anyone from stopping terror-driven militant Islam with the requisite force required to decimate it. Therefore, Liberalism is the worse offense.”

“Give me just one example!” he insisted.

“Racial profiling: the entire world has been set on fire by young to middle-age Muslim, Arab and Indonesian men but you, and people like you, would rather inconvenience, delay, embarrass, fondle, frisk and irradiate American soccer moms, pastors, military veterans, doctors, charity organizers, children, Congressman, police officers, newlyweds, the elderly, the crippled and infirmed, the handicapped and mentally impaired… than simply profile the very people who have proven to be of the nations, languages, and singular religion that has declared war on us and our Middle Eastern allies. As is typical of liberalism, you patently deny the actual problem and staunchly defend creating ten more injustices, each far worse than the next, to offset the first one. And because liberals will not deal effectively and pragmatically with this problem, you are in fact aiding and abetting terrorists by distracting and wearying our security forces with 300-million non-suspects who are clearly no threat to the sovereignty of the United States. Our republic is as endangered by you as by them.”

He just sat there.

Finally… Some Real Producers

I have to admit it took a little longer than I expected, but I realize now the delay was solely my fault in that I continued to search for highly progressive, upper-tier producers and production houses in Texas where — let’s be honest — woefully few are really trying to make real films. The vast majority of filmmakers in Texas are just making short films and cheap straight-to-DVD movies.

When you walk in to make your pitch to a company and everyone crosses their arms defensively and start pouting, you know you are not in the company of men who want to be rich, but in the presence of men who have already labeled you a rival.

It doesn’t matter how good your stuff is, or tight your game is because they aren’t looking to go to the next level—no, no no. They’ve found their little niche and like scamming the people who trust them to represent their work.

In fact, the better your work is, the more original your ideas, the hotter your designs, the fresher your dialog, the more innovative your plots…

You will actually alienate them faster. I am not making this up.

Why? Who cares? It’s either they are intimidated, envious or frightened you’ll take your job, even if you don’t want it.

And here’s the real rub: if you show up confident that your work is categorically equal to anything they have, or that can be found in LA, they will consider you arrogant and conceited… right before they go back to their cheap DVD covers cobbled together in Microsoft Paint. Remember, the film industry has completely abandoned sound, pragmatic, provable Conservative protocols of success, profit and excellence. What does that mean? Simply think about what any successful, sane, intelligent business man or woman in the free market would do: now do the opposite, that’s Hollywood: completely obsessed with dead ideas, the old rot, and losing billions in profits every year. Liberalism, when it is allowed to run amok always impoverishes any sector into which it is injected. That is why all liberal architecture must coerce its participants with the usual shackles; they cannot survive in a true free market because a legitimately free market demands discipline, restraint, balance, pragmatism, and the best ideas to succeed in. Liberalism will never punish the bad idea because liberalism itself is the worst idea of all… it is just the old ball and chain with a new varnish. Liberalism excuses, defends, celebrates and promotes human behavior which is inherently selfish, greedy, slothful, prideful, murderous, cold, judgmental, militant, and sensual. Through discipline, self restraint, symmetry, mercy, imagination, compassion, accountability and consequences Conservatism builds businesses, markets, and civilizations.

But there are real producers and production houses that want to make some real bank and make awesome films. They want the bright lights, the big names, and the big paydays.

Find them.

They are out there and the good news they aren’t your rivals. No, they are desperately seeking people like you! They want to work with the best, be the best, and make legendary films.

And I’ve got good news: they do exist.

“Do not cast your pearls before swine.”

The New Testament Condones Slavery?

In the last few years several high-profile celebrities of doubt have accused the New Testament of being silent on the matter of slavery, or worse, even condoning it.

Just recognize men like Richard Dawkins, Sam Harris, Daniel Dennett, the late Christopher Hitchens, Bill Maher are no threat to Christian doctrine. Driven by Old World bigotries, deficits of integrity, misapprehensions, and just an old fashioned lack of education, they break their hammers and weary themselves against an invulnerable wall about which they know nothing of “what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height.”

Their arguments are powerless against intelligent men and women.

Like all their accusations, they aren’t very good at actually reading the very work they despise.

So, once again, let me do their job for them:

The claim: The New Testament condones slavery.

The fact: 1 Timothy 1:10

Here’s the breakdown.

8 But we know that the law is good, if a man use it lawfully;
9 Knowing this, that the law is not made for a righteous man, but for the lawless and disobedient, for the ungodly and for sinners, for unholy and profane, for murderers of fathers and murderers of mothers, for manslayers,
10 For whoremongers, for them that defile themselves with mankind, for menstealers, for liars, for perjured persons, and if there be any other thing that is contrary to sound doctrine…

Do you see the word menstealers in v.10?

That word is ἀνδραποδιστής in the Greek. It is the word andrapodistēs (än-drä-po-dē-stā’s).

It is masculine noun that means:

  • A slave-dealer, kidnapper, man-stealer
  • Of one who unjustly reduces free men to slavery
  • Of one who steals the slaves of others and sells them

Men-stealing is in the same list as unholy and profane, lawless and disobedient, murders, etc. And yes, it includes enslaving women and children too, or the aged or the foreigner.

Thus, the New Testament does not condone slavery.

So just remember what you already know: dishonest men are dishonest.

This took me ten minutes to debunk.

I didn’t do this for me because I already knew it.

I did it for you.

Bad People

Bad people will never voluntarily play in any game or follow any doctrine that demands of them “Do unto other as you would have them do unto you.”

Bad people believe fair play is for the naive. It is only okay if they steal, exploit or hold you hostage… certainly not the other way around.

Which is why they are okay with setting the world on fire and watching it burn.

Their savage fire worship is almost prophetic: it is as if they know they are going to spend eternity in the company of flames and anguish.

Taglines

Let’s be honest:

The real reason so many people want your idea in a short, succinct sentence that literally in no way conveys the depth, originality and profitability of your work is not because they are illiterate, unintelligent, or have the attention spans of goldfish…

Though those allegations are all perfectly reasonable.

The real reason is… should they hear a novel idea they believe is profitable… they can steal your concept without worrying about litigation as a tagline is often vague enough to successfully defend against charges of inevitable plagiarism.

My advice for swimming with sharks?

Bring a spear gun.

Little Eichmanns

The extreme careerism and rent-seeking of the unwearying Little Eichmanns of modern skepticism—the bastard offspring of, well, the old skepticism that achieved as little for all its pouting—is quick to lay a thousand years of bloodshed at the feet of all religions, including Christianity.

Well, that’s not true: they tend to weary sane people. Their drones just nod in rote obedience, which they prefer.

First, Christianity is not a religion. It is a relationship. As usual people who aren’t Christian don’t even know the difference and always embarrass themselves with this misstatement. But I’ll correct this in an upcoming post.

Second, there’s this:

“Glory to God in the highest, and on Earth peace, good will toward men.”

This is part of the opening mission statement of Christianity.

People who actually read books—particularly the Bible—know little facts like this.

The people who read the New Testament and think it condones wars, invasions, torture, mutilations and persecutions are the same people who could read Where the Red Fern Grows and walk away thinking it commands the building of a cherry red, nuclear-powered attack submarine to bomb orphanages and hospitals from sea in a secret plot to advance the eugenic agenda of some fascistic cabal on the planet Vulcan.

It isn’t the believer’s fault, or Christ’s fault, or the Bible’s fault. It is their fault for being dead-souled Little Eichmanns. The Bible calls them “lost” and “blind” or more bluntly “the damned” and now you know why. They prefer darkness, disinformation and depravity.

Still, even they must be reminded that at any moment they can lay those chains down and be truly free.

Life and death are choices. Whatever you choose God will make sure you get. He’s already told you the right answer, so we’re all without excuse.

Christianity is not, and never was about material war.

It was 400 years after Christ that the church was politicized, paganized, and militarized by centuries of blood thirsty heathens, imperialistic emperors, sadistic popes and black princes. The atrocities of the Crusades, the Inquisition, and all the other crimes of the Holy Roman Church—which is neither holy, nor a church—cannot be to be laid at the feet of the Prince of Peace.

Christianity is not Islam—it never uses the fist or the sword to spread its message, ever.

Coercion of any class, kind or caliber, though encouraged by other religions, is patently forbidden by Scripture, but moreover, by the very Spirit that forms the relationship of a child to his Father. The love of the Father required the blood of only one Son and by its very efficacy, rejects the blood of others as competitors to grace. Thus violence is abolished.

As it is written:

“Glory to God in the highest, and on Earth peace, good will toward men.”

So when anyone says Christianity is a militant faith you know they have never read one chapter of its pages.

Move on—you are being confronted by vacuous Little Eichmanns who simply hate what they don’t understand and worse, have chosen as an act of their will to not even understand.

In truth, they are the sword-wielding bigots that have stained history red with the lives of men, women and children.

They are the throat-slitters.

Be of good cheer: God recognizes His own… even if you can’t.

Treatments Nos. 92, 93, and 94

Just finished three more treatments for a potential foreign group buy. All three treatments (Nos. 92-94) bring me just six shy of one hundred.

I actually have well over three hundred film concepts but as far as 1-3 page summaries and 10-30 page treatments, I have only finished these first ninety-four.

Time to partner up and make some films.
