CDC - PR Agent for "Contagion"
I saw the trailer for the Steven Soderbergh film "Contagion" months ago. After watching it, I felt ill. Of course, it's not possible to catch the flu from simply watching the movie. Though, I have to admit, after viewing just a few scenes, it sure felt that way. After all, it's being brought to us in stereophonic germ-o-vision. We can't help but feel Gwyneth's, and all the other victims, horrible pain with all the gruesome close ups and deadly details. 3D pales in comparison to germ-o-vision. Come to think of it, 3D could really enhance the effect. Well, maybe the CDC will push for that in their next big fear blockbuster. Anyway, I intend to avoid this "sick fear fest", which is infecting movie theaters, like the plague. (pun intended) What a coincidence that it was released during the same weekend of the 9/11 "terrorist fear fest". Our leaders always like to double up on terrorizing the populace whenever possible. It really helps to "catapult the propaganda".
Yes, the CDC loves a good horror story. Last May it was the Zombie Apocalypse they tried to scare us with. Before that, it was the pandemic that wasn't. Fear! Fear! Fear! Be afraid, be very afraid. It's coming ! We're not sure what it is but we have a vaccine for it! So, that is why the director of the CDC is out pushing "Contagion" as if he were a paid PR agent. There is the CDC, showing up all over our tv "news" shows and print media bragging about how they were advisers to the movie. Telling us, yes, this could really happen. Yes, the deadly virus could spread that fast. Yes, way too many public health servants have been laid off all over the country..probably more in your town than any other! Yes, we are hyping up the fear so you will line up at Walmart and take the shot this fall.
What scares me more than the movie is that I think the CDC is hyping this for a reason. Namely, in preparation for a deadly bio attack of the false flag variety. The monsters always show their hand well before they unleash the big event. Even Soderbergh himself alludes to this "What would be great is if this type of event were to occur, people would feel, 'Wait, I've been through this in a way, I saw that movie.' During H1N1 (the 2009 flu scare), I wasn't satisfied that they were on top of it. Now I know that they are very, very good." Well isn't that just special, Steven.
Their message throughout all of these "ads" is to keep us separated. Don't get to close to the person next to you. Contact with another human being could make you very sick. As the poster says "Don't Talk to Anyone, Don't Touch Anyone. They love to divide and conquer us as exhibited in the HSA's "see something, say something" Stasi-like fear campaign. Or perhaps they are just trying to sell more flu vaccine for Big Pharma.
But no, it's probably none of the above. I'm sure the CDC simply cares about us and is concerned for our health and welfare and have no ulterior motive for pimping this film and zombies and pandemics . Far be it from me to follow the CDC's lead as a fear monger. ~jg
