(Above the Snowflakes Part 4) Our investigation continues… This series aimed to examine the philosophical roots of the current intensifying social justice movement, and how messages from academia have spilled out into popular culture and consciousness. Today, Jay Dyer joins me to argue that the phenomenon actually has darker origins. Jay is the author of Esoteric Hollywood: Sex, Cults and Symbols in Film and host of Jay’s Analysis Podcast. We’ll spend the first half hour talking about film analysis and his TV show, Hollywood Decoded. Then we’ll discuss whether or not there is actually a kind of covert war against the minds of millennials that began a long time ago, and with designs far more grand in scale. We focus our conversation on the psychological experimentation of the Tavistock Institute and on the idea of “culture creation.” MONOLOGUE A nautical metaphor for three types of behavior inside revolutionary social and political movements INTRO (20:15 – 48:48) – What is Hollywood up to? – HG Wells, Star Trek and predictive programming – Independence Day, Bill Pullman, 9/11 and George Bush – Jay’s TV Show, Hollywood Decoded – Working with master Kubrick theorist, Jay Weidner TAVISTOCK INSTITUTE (48:49 – end) – The utility of social movements for oligarchs – Definitions and Origins – Is there a central mission? – Rooted in pragmatism – Eco and “Uber-Fascism” – Veganism – experiments in group-think – Altering “man’s view of man” – Culture creation – Manufacturing guilt – The Phoenix Program, turning neighbor against neighbor – Identity politics – real and synthetic – Media-induced mania – Shame inversion – Charlottesville, psychological warfare – SJW trauma response to speech – Tavistock’s MK ULTRA connections – The alienated youth and generational studies – The creation and steering of socio-political trends
