Moonbat Alpha: Maoist International Movement

“Come in Moonbat Alpha. Are you there Moonbat Alpha?”

“We read you loud and clear.”

The Maoist International Movement

Strap yourself in before you read any of the movie reviews. Prepare for your indoctrination now.

Some excerpts:

Men in Black – 1997
…The Men in Black consider themselves “above the system,” and indeed they are in this movie fantasy of the aspiring intergalactic bourgeoisie which long ago went beyond petty national conflicts like that seen at the Mexican border. The Men in Black want their rule to appear “neutral” and beneficial to humyn-kind, as if it were possible for a state to be class-neutral…

The Matrix – 1999

A Hollywood film of tremendous value — a great gift to the revolutionary movement on par with that of Reds politically and done artistically as well as can be with special effects. Humyn-beings both dead and alive are tended by machines in gigantic mechanical farms where they are used as batteries for the various kinds of heat and electricity that they produce. Not only does the script-writer uphold materialism as the existence of an external world independent of the subject (humyn mind), but also the script-writer shows us how science will conquer and make everything knowable including dreams. There are a few drawbacks to this film, but on the whole, MIM could not have asked for more in a two and a half hour Hollywood movie. We can use the movie to educate people about dialectics, modes of production, Lenin’s book “Materialism and Empirio-Criticism” and the drawbacks of anarchism and individualism.

Yes, you read that right. The machines are the good guys. That’s kind of a different take than you had originally thought, isn’t it?

    You misinterpreted MIM’s Matrix movie review, the machines are oppressors.

    “…The moment of truth comes when Neo finally understands that
    he is a battery in a farm controlled by a computer program…”

    In the short review, which I quoted fully, the machines are the good guys. You quoted (and neglected to give a reference) the long review. The long review reads much differently, talking about a whole slew of other moonbat ideas. For example:

    Neo gets back in the car and he finally meets the military leader of a unit of the resistance. Morpheus tells Neo he can learn the truth, which only gets deeper and deeper and is not necessarily pleasant at all or he can leave “and go on believing whatever you want to believe.” The choice is simple: truth or anarchist stupor. Neo had to give up on the idea that he is in control as an individual and accept that he might not be.

    Anarchist stupor?

    And here is the entire paragraph that you began to quote:

    The moment of truth comes when Neo finally understands that
    he is a battery in a farm controlled by a computer program.
    When he learns this he moves to attack Morpheus, the
    messenger that told him no, Neo was never in control as an
    individual. Neo gets unplugged from the computer program
    where he learned the truth and we get the sense that he
    would have killed everyone in that unit of the resistance if
    he hadn’t fallen unconscious first.

    Um, no. He flailed at Morpheus like a confused little girl. And when he woke up, he was nauseous as though he just got off a roller coaster.

    The review gets wackier after that point. Go ahead and tell me it’s not insane ramblings.
