If you're new, Subscribe! → http://bit.ly/Subscribe-to-Looper John Carpenter's 1988 opus They Live is a scathing indictment of capitalism and the culture of greed masquerading as a B movie about invading aliens. It stars professional wrestler "Rowdy" Roddy Piper as a homeless laborer whose world is turned upside down when he finds a box of special sunglasses that allow the wearer to see the truth about subliminal messaging forcing humanity to OBEY.

I never understood Reagan, even when he was Governor. I would take the "They Live" movie a bit further and say it is anti totalitarian (both extremes in the political spectrum). Y

Scathing indictment of Capitalism? Hilarious. Those aliens were Communist Totalitarians. That movie is about how the Soviets have managed to hide in plain sight within American society.

This film is about the cabal PERIOD! It's telling the public that there's something sinister and malevolent going on behind the scenes and if someone doesn't step up we're all FUCKED! Good thing there were people throughout the last 55 years that knew what was happing and decided to do just that! Unfortunately most of us didn't listen and those heroes either lost their lives or were ridiculed into isolation without any appreciation form those they sought to save. Now shit's hitting the fan and its time for all of us to do our part!! Look back at Bill Cooper ,Dolores Cannon, Phil Schneider, Col Forestall, JFK, and many others and you'll understand whats being expose everyday since 2016! Is MSM talking about it? NOPE! But we don't need them to spoon feed us lies anymore. Thank GOD for the internet! It's far from perfect but at least if gives you a chance to use your own discernment!

Bet you anything Piper's inspiration for Nada which he kept to himself was Roddy's very own personal early upbringing after he left his parents and before he started wrestling. He never liked to talk about his past.

It's NOT a spoof of Capitalism, EVEN IF Carpenter himself said that it was (but that's just because Carpenter is a liberal socialist twat who got rich off of capitalism but doesn't understand it in the slightest). The aliens were NOT practicing capitalism. They were practicing full blown fascism, which (like it or not) is an entirely LEFT WING ideology. They were simply disguising their fascism as capitalism using advanced technology. This doesn't need to be explained to right wing individualists, because they know exactly what I mean already. But trying to explain the FACT that fascism is a left wing principle to a leftist collectivist automaton is like trying to explain quantum physics to a rock. Learn something you FUCKING idiots.
John Stewart (2 days ago)
+KLJF Spoken like a true totalitarian fascist. "...you MUST be RULED by FORCE..." Let's add up the totalitarian fascist death toll to date, shall we? 100,000,000 in the last one hundred years. Yup. One hundred million people who didn't want to be "RULED" by smug communist twats who've never done a days work in their pathetic entitled lives. Again...come on my property, and I will shoot you....you fucking commie parasite piece of shit. Get a job and take a shower you pathetic dirt bag.
KLJF (2 days ago)
+John Stewart the long term damage your idea of freedom does is just too hard for small brained people to grasp , so you MUST be ruled by force in the same way a child killer would be imprisoned , after all it amounts to the same thing .
John Stewart (2 days ago)
+KLJF LMFAO! My God...what a regressive DOUCHE! LOL! Socialism is about OPPRESSING PEOPLE using the power of the State for the exclusive benefit of other people. Forcing labor from people through the barrel of a GUN and against their will to work for the selected other people. "United we stand"? Well, we're not "united" if you're pointing a fucking gun at me demanding money you fucking collectivist useful idiot. What YOU'RE advocating for is mob justice. You're out to PUNISH people because they hurt your precious snowflake feelings, and like the ABSOLUTE PUSSY that you KNOW you are, you expect Big Daddy State to point the gun...because "Eww...I hate guns." I'm not going to stand next to a socialist. You people STINK! Have you wiffed your little soy soaked comrade compadres lately? You people need to shower. I'm DEAD serious about that. I mean, wtf dude...
KLJF (2 days ago)
+John Stewart listen dummy , united we stand divided we fall = fascism (the bundle of sticks comes from aesops fables) it's like a team getting ready for a game with their rivals ! socialism on the other hand is about keeping the peace through NOT having rivals , internally or externally . but you prefer the law of the jungle with every beast out for themselves and fuck the future .
John Stewart (3 days ago)
+KLJF Ah, I see. You're a leftist. Well, tell me more about how deplatforming, censorship, and banning people isn't fascistic. Tell me about how disarming them, regulating speech and thought, and criminalizing political beliefs ...all through the force power of the State...isn't fascistic. "Fascist" literally translates into "a bundle of sticks". It's a metaphor for collectivism....LEFTISM! How the hell does "a bundle of sticks" represent INDIVIDUALISTS (Capitalists)....you stupid stupid person? Stop trying to sound smart when you don't even know what the fucking word means. You're a programmed automaton...that's all.

Lol funny thing is... Hollywood thrives off of capitalism. Yet they are the rich pompous high rollers who don’t know what real work and struggle is, yet preach equality and distribution of wealth and how bad oil and gas affects “climate change”... while they have a million cars each and private jets. Yep. Makes total sense. But capitalism is so bad. Let’s listen to what they have to say. Haha. Hypocritical leftists, what else do you expect? 😂 awesome movie, just too bad the overall theme is totally hypocritical of the people who made it.

Roddy Piper posted before he died in 2015 "They live is a documentary", because obviously apart from the alient thing everything in that movie reflects our world today and whats wrong with it. Which is people that are psychopaths are leading our society. Yes psychopaths. Ive done extensive research on our leaders from companies to presidents and guess what, the occurance of psychopaths in that groups is 100 times more likely (check statistics!)!!! Its obvious if you think about it, where else do you get what psychopaths need more than anyone (which is social status)? Of course in high status jobs where you can use power and you dont have to compromise with others or have empathy, but rather you are seen as a better leader when you raise your profit by lowering empathy (not like you can only earn a lot of money without empathy but definetly in many situations empathy will be a problem for you if you seek to max profit for a company or a gov.).

Because yes...there really is nothing more oppressive than unparalleled economic democracy that's produced unrivalled individual wealth that made even poor Americans more prosperous than 99% of the world. Tyrannical...truly tyrannical...

Twist: the main actress in the movie was a real life alien. Anyone seen those eyes of her?
Verbal Ästhet (1 month ago)
The point of the movie is that humanity is indeed controlled by hidden agents. The behavior is controlled by propaganda. All of politics, movies, music, newspapers and TV is controlled by them. Secret societies, deep state, sects, bankers. Just read about the deeds of Rothschild or Rockefeller and it will blow your mind just like putting on the sun glasses.

I think the reason the elite cannot be taken out is that they could crash the stock market/ economy if they want to. Like they did in 1929. Today it would be a global disaster killing billions of people. most politicians are held in blackmail any way.. and into occult. I think someday they will crash the economy, if they don't start WWIII first.
