You thought it could never happen here. Well, you're wrong...
The west faces the extraordinary situation today whereby, even though the communist iron curtain fell in 1989-1992, Marxist-Communist operatives at all levels of society in the west - have continued their ideological drive (and in many cases passed the torch over generations) to disrupt and de-moralise... western politics, economics, society and culture.
Hollywood plays a central role in not only feeding talking points and concepts, but also by lowering the moral bar - lowering moral standards, by constantly targeting ever younger audiences with gratuitous sex and violence, and even subliminal imagery. In this kind of social environment, the populace is rendered unable to make informed decisions in their local, or national interests.
According to a high level Soviet defector, Yuri Alexandrovich Bezmenov, who granted this interview in the mid 80's, operations against the west were less about intelligence gathering and more to do with what is known as 'ideological subversion' and 'active measures' - programs designed over 15 to 20 year period in order to subvert moral foundations by targeting students and the educational systems. The operations "change from within" using "agents of change", and ultimately to change people's behaviours - a practice now used openly by western governments, known as Applied Behavioral Psychology.
We've now reached a unique crossroads where countries like Russia and China are moving away from Marxism and are in the process of opening up, while the West is in the process of constricting its social charters and bill of rights. All this is happening and most people are completely unaware of it.
All this, disguised under political banners like 'redistribution of wealth', 'social justice' and 'equality'.

"Marxist-Leninism ideology is being pumped into the soft heads of at least three generations of American students without being challenged, or counter balanced by the basic values of Americanism."

PG-13 movies match R rating for violence, study says.
The prevalence of gun violence in top PG-13 movies has more than tripled since the rating was introduced in the mid-1980s, and last year it eclipsed even the amount in R-rated movies, according to findings to be published Monday in the journal Pediatrics.
“I think most parents would be surprised to learn that,” said Brad Bushman, a professor of communication and psychology at Ohio State University and one of the study’s authors. “We were pretty shocked.”
The authors said their findings are particularly troubling given considerable research into what has been called the “weapons effect,” which suggests that depiction of gun violence in media could lead to more aggressive behavior in the real world.
“We know that movies teach children how adults behave, and they make gun use appear exciting and attractive,” said Dan Romer, another co-author and the director of the Adolescent Communication Institute of the Annenberg Public Policy Center in Pennsylvania.
To determine how violence — and specifically gun violence — has changed in films over time, researchers chose 945 films sampled from the 30 top-grossing releases each year from 1950 to 2012. Coders sifted through the movies, noting violent sequences.
Researchers said they excluded violence not intended to harm anyone, such as accidents and run-of-the-mill sports aggression. They also excluded activities such as hunting and the use of large-scale weapons such as rocket-propelled grenades and military artillery.
In the end, they found that violence in films had more than doubled since 1950, and that violence had tripled in PG-13 films over the past quarter-century. In addition, while PG-13 movies initially had only about as much violence as G- and PG-rated films, since 2009 they have contained as much violence as R-rated films, or more.
Romer said even though some of the most popular PG-13 films in recent years, such as “The Hunger Games,” “The Dark Knight Rises” and “Snow White and the Huntsman,” are based on comic-book heroes or other fantasy characters, “these films have a lot of violence in them.”...
