The Hobbit vs One Tin Soldier

The Hobbit is fiction, but it reflects some people’s real life views and emotions. I went to see the movie this weekend with my niece.

The movie was mostly empty of the normal Hollywood messages – no gay hero, no brilliant authoritative male from an ethnic minority, no seven year old whose innocence makes him smarter than the corrupted adults (although the foundation is laid that a child will slay the “black” dragon)

The “OMG, here we go” moment came when the Dwarves had been captured by the humans living in the squalid city by the lake. The dwarves win over the masses (and the corrupt ugly fat king) by declaring that if only the people of the town will let them go to slay the Evil Black Dragon that lives in the mountain filled with the gold stolen from the dwarves, prosperity and commerce will return to the city.

Probably 2/3 of the movie is Elves, Humans, Orcs and Spiders killing each other over control of turf and wealth. I don’t understand how this film appeals to progressives other than the obvious “people who accumulate wealth and don’t “share” it are evil and should be killed so we can all be rich.

Again stipulating this is fiction, what would motivate a black dragon to kill the workers that were mining the gold? And what use does a black dragon have for gold if he can’t use it?

The somewhat idealistic song One Tin Soldier from the movie Billy Jack in 1971 crafts a story of A rich kingdom on a hill and the people living below in the valley envious of the people on the hill.

When the mountain people offer to share the secrets of the mountain and their wealth, the valley people want the entire treasure and storm the mountain and kill the mountain people, only to find the secret treasure of the mountain is a stone that says “Peace on Earth”

The drums of war are beating in the distance.

    “The drums of war are beating in the distance.”

    Yes indeed they are. Look for a new alliance of China, Russia, and Iran against the U.S. and Israel, with the European Union countries staying neutral. With our current leadership it’s not clear at all that we would intervene militarily if Iran launched on Israel. Particularly if China says they’ll launch on the U.S. mainland if we try to attack Iran. China and Russia are natural enemies and cannot remain allies forever, but they’ll probably stick together long enough to ensure the U.S. is neutralized.

    Economic and military power translate into political power. Like it or not, a politically and morally strong America provides the foundation for a peaceful world. The U.S. Congress (assisted by well-meaning but economically ignorant presidents) has been eroding our economic power since the mid 1960’s, and our military power (especially naval and aerospace) has been on the downhill slide since the mid-1990s. Just like in 1941, the door is open for the dark side to strike hard against the U.S. while we are still weakened from decades of mismanagement and corrupt leadership.

    What use does a black dragon have for gold? He changes it into MonoAtomic Gold through an alchemical process and consumes it because it sharpens the psyche and makes one “Perfect”. The Pharaohs and High Priests were taught the secret.

    Alex predicts more false flags in 2014 and Soro’s continues to gut American manufacturing . He says Rockerfella is Dracula.
    Alex also said the Hobbit movie is very good.

      Parrott, you left out so many of the corrupt, surely Pelosi and Barney Frank deserve a mention.

      2014-2015 promises to be a ‘bang-up’ period. Gotta start thinking ‘good’ thoughts, i.e., that ‘they’ get exposed and get their just deserves. Hope we see a new slew of WhistleBlowers over the next 2 years.

      • Parrott says:

        Yeah I know Nidster, there was just to many to name,
        Like, dingy Harry, Hilliary should be in jail & that Holder fella.
        I hope you are right on the ‘whistleblowers’, sure do need them.

      Sonny Bono is the poster child for my campaign to outlaw downhill skiing due to the cost to all of us paying health care costs and the loss of tax revenue he would have given us if he hadn’t died prematurely in his skiing accident. There is a formula one driver in the last few days who had a skiing accident who is also going to cost us a lot of money and lost income to us taken from his taxes. Who does he think he is? In fact, I think we need to ban all types of racing. It’s just so irresponsible.

        Bono, the U2 guy used to really hate it when people kidded him by calling him “Sonny”.

        Interesting how that tree caused Sunny’s wife to take his place in the House of Representatives.
