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. It’s one of Carpenter's greatest films, but grab a pair of Hoffman lenses for yourself to see the truth that even hardcore fans may not know about They Live... H.P.

This make you wonder how true it is in 2019
Daniel Hurd (1 day ago)
On target except for one thing. Reagan was an establishment outsider (like Trump). So the hatred and nose thumbing at Reagan was misguided by the well-off Carpenter and Piper. Just more Hollywood hypocrisy.

Reaganomics wanted a band on those glasses 2 but won the drug war on the Indigenous people so 1 out of 2 isn't so bad 4 them. Devastating the inner city with drugs will leave an asleep public

Great movie. I think it's real but with demons running the world

The majority is a distraction. Like the government, voting and what president "we" pic. Religion is a great way to appeal our sense of needing to belong to something greater, and manipulate at the same time. Even this video is a distraction, that diverts from the big picture, if it were anything else it wouldn't be here. Indoctrination is alive and well here, its done a bit more subtly, but as long as you are "normal" and raise a family that belives in Jesus, what more do you need to think about right...... Give the illusion of choice, while telling them what to think, wear, love, hate, and need. Because if I have the choice of any color high tops, 36 different flavors or if I want to see Escape Room or Bumblebee I must be in a free country. Instead of implanting chips into people to track them, they just gave us cell phones.

While I agree with the movie. It always strikes me as odd that men, like Carpenter, who rail against capitalism are apart of the .01%. Not 1%, .01%. How does he look at himself in the mirror? Oh that's right he's one of the good elites.

The truth is, the untold part of the video is not told. Snake like aliens or being is wrong. Never thought the sunglasses to be magical, however, the sunglasses I wear could have magical power because of their aide to my vision of sight. Nope, not any depth or revelations to this video.

I dont understand the whole title. Is it about that "They" existing or that they (whoever) really are alive? Both would make sence.
Dei Mudda (1 month ago)
Thank you. But that seems not the right answer. Becaus the life which "they" are living- is no real life. Its a other- directed life like robots,not self-determined---and thats no real life. Only a wild animal, human or any other creature has a real life. So the meaning must be that there is something- group, organisation, which "we" doesnt know about. Thats the point actually. Nearly nobody knows about that people, which can do whatever they want- also killing. No law on earth could judge "them". And that group/organisation is growing more and more- till its visible not just for me and you....and not only with spezial glasses

Early in the film, a wall says "They Live, We Sleep." They, the aliens/capitalist class are allowed to live while the middle and lower classes are forced to be asleep from their class consciousness

jopageri1964 (1 month ago)
So, when is Hollywood going to be brave enough to do a sequel revealing our current dilemma? The dilemma of the anarchistic socialist engineering of this nation. They can call it "Eight years of Obama." Or maybe "The Chuck and Nancy show." Or maybe "We're the government and we're here to help."

This movie is about the non-goyims owning the media and governments of the western world. The aliens are the non-goyims, director and executives were just too stupid to see it until the movie was made and one of the non-goyim executives was so angry at this movie telling the truth, he removed it from theaters a month after it released. So put on these sun glasses or start eating from that trashcan, goyims.

I'm here to chew bubblegum and kick ass and I'm all out of bubblegum LOL. I couldn't stop laughing with that line. I did watch this movie. But now you know those brand new sunglasses that are out on the market the HD vision glasses. The ones that say that it can improve your vision and improved color. And my local Walmart. They are trying to recall those glasses they're taking all of those sunglasses off of the shelves I'm in Arkansas. Hum now it makes you wonder why they are trying to get rid of those new HD color sunglasses. And I don't think it has anything to do with this movie. I don't even think they saw this movie. Those glasses are supposed to improve your vision what don't they want you to see
MAX POWER (1 month ago)
1:34 Why saying magic sunglasses in such a sarcastic manner? This is actually a genius idea. I mean the Aliens use some kind of filter technology to hide. with the glasses you can see through this filters. That is not far away from nowadays technology.. And if we go into David Ickes Reptilian conspiracy this is exactly what is going on. Not that I believe in that..

They've been cloning humans since Nazi Germany so Demon possessed clones have been walking among us in positions of power for decades. Archaeologists unearthed Nephilim Giants & isolated the Giantism gene. They can insert the gene into any embryo including hybrids that would look like ET's from other worlds that don't exist. They've created 50 ft Great White Sharks, Dragons, Lycanthropes, Cat People, Giant Apes, Bigfoot Wookies, Dinosaur Raptors that actually never existed millions of years ago. The Beast in the ALIEN movie is a Scorpion hybrid ! Sting in the Tail means something that ends badly. The Illuminati rock band Scorpions has an album titled Sting in the Tail....because they know the end is near ! The Rothschilds, Rockefellers, Windsors, Bushs & many other families are inbred into one bloodline of generational Satanist Vampires who abduct children for ritual sacrifice & for their "Young Blood" (There is a physiological difference between children's blood & adult's blood)......Now you know what happens to the over 50,000 children that disappear every year in the US & thousands of other children worldwide !

Nope its called discernment. It is using logic free of dogma, connecting the dots, using both brain parts and most importantly of all, your heart. Its is exactly the thing "they" don't want you to do and have. Religion is just another spoke in the control system.

Not capitalism, communism. The aliens were communists subverting and corrupting the capitalist free markets. It's a classic, and holds more value today than it did when released. It's like the hard working conservative man red pills and sees society for what it truly is: EVIL!
