Do you remember that movie called Idiocracy? It has Luke Wilson and Terry Crewes in it. To sum it up, here’s the synopsis from IMDB.com:
‘Private Joe Bauers, the definition of “average American”, is selected by the Pentagon to be the guinea pig for a top-secret hibernation program. Forgotten, he awakes 500 years in the future. He discovers a society so incredibly dumbed-down that he’s easily the most intelligent person alive.‘
Being the nomad loner that I am, I stay away from the norms (insanities) of society. I like to observe the interactions that people have on a daily basis. I like hearing people use the same phrases and insults everyday…kinda robotic.
Anyway, I found it alarming that this movie seemed to be prophetic. Today’s society is similar to the movie’s society 500 years later. I figured since it is cool to dumb down in society, I may as well come up with a brilliant idea for an unscripted documentary.
It should be all about sex. Sex here, sex there, sexual insults… If a woman is walking around with jeans, hajib, shorts, dresses or leggings, she should be called a prostitute. Everyday until she gets it. When society wakes each morning, it is mandatory to look in the mirror and say, ‘I hate you. You are terrible.’
There are no more conversations between adults. To make sure the next generation learns our ways, we must always answer, ‘Got that?’, to any question being asked. ‘Got that?’ is the term for mature adults to use when they are not feeling like talking, or using their brain.
Arguments and accusations are the way of life. This is the only way for society to understand each other. No need to ask questions, because you will only response you will get is…Got that?
The documentary will then focus on the way citizens feel about their country. Instead of the abundance and gluttony that they are used to, they discourage eating by calling any and everyone fat…or for the smart guys who use big words…fatty. This is to make the citizens insecure with low self-esteem. Therefore, it is an even playing field for all to fail. That is the goal.
There is no differentiating adults for school children, as the vernacular is the same. Sex rules the society, as that is the only way to control others and the household. Sex starts controlling the home, and before you know it, they try to rule the world through what’s between their legs. The brain is useless…orgasms make the world go round. It’s a terribly beautiful life for the ignorant, and great entertainment for the brilliant.
There is no way to stop this behavior from society. They say that just because others want them to get better, they will get worse. There is nothing you can do about it. In their heads there is no personal responsibility or accountability. It’s our fault.
Let’s not forget about the Prestigious powerless group We. They are really on one. The only way to fit with this group is to lose yourself…de-individualize. They recommend you forgetting the letter I, as you won’t be getting anywhere without them. They come to destroy everything good, because the world destroyed them emotionally. They couldn’t take it. They were borne out of life’s Easy button. One push and no more self-growth, just waiting to perish, like the terrible people they are.
I will be auditioning outside of my apartment for actors and actresses. No need to memorize lines, just be yourself.
