"CDC should not try to deal
I'm a fan of the short-lived FOX tv show "Firefly" (2002), I was not
alone. Because of fan demand, a movie was made: "Serenity" (the name of
the Firefly class star ship the crew sailed in). In both the tv show
and the movie, "Reavers" played an important role. They were real life
monsters, they were thought to be 'men gone mad' out in the
'black'...men who'd seen a 'vasty nothingness and gone all bibbledy'.
And since the movie came out in '05, I hope I'm not 'spoiling' anyone
by letting the cat out of the bag and noting that the crew finds out
the truth of their origin. You see, 'Earth that Was' is uninhabitable
500 years into the future according to the imagination of Joss Whedon.
Settlers have gone out into space and 'terraformed' planets, making
them as close to Earth that Was as they can. Problem is, (and Joss
claims to be an atheist), MAN cannot seem to keep from each little
planet having it's own 'quirks'. None of them are 'perfect'. The
Alliance is a governing body that makes the idea of the NWO sound good.
They rule EVERYTHING. The Independents tried to rebel, but lost the
battle. So, here we are on the raggedy edge...our crew is led by Capt.
Mal Reynolds, he was a Sgt. in the war, he was against the Alliance
(Purple bellies), he was/is a "Browncoat". He does not trust the
government and what they tell people, he used to be a believer, devout,
but he saw some horrors in war that have soured him on God.
Why bring all this up with a 'title' about the CDC? I find it
creepifying (I'm peppering this whole letter with Firefly-isms, heh),
that our own government can 'joke' about a zombie apocalypse while
trying to tell us to 'be ready'. In "Serenity" the movie (I was one of
11 lucky fans who got to be an extra), we see the Reavers doing their
thing. They are cannibals...and that's about the nicest thing you can
say about them. In the TV show, when the Doctor asks about them,
thinking they were just scary 'campfire stories', he's told, very
seriously by Zoe, the First Mate of the ship, "...they aren't stories,
if they board us, they'll rape us to death, eat our flesh, and sew our
skin into their clothes, and if we're very very lucky, they'll do it in
Again...why all this info about a Sci-Fi show/movie that most people
have not heard of? Why is it something that came to mind when I got
Because in "Serenity", we find the truth...as the crew finds a planet
that was thought to have failed due to one of those 'quirks' that all
the newly terraformed planets have, has people just laying down, dead,
sitting at their desks, dead...and they are led to a beacon, where a
holographic image of a scientist explains that it was NOT a malfunction
or some kind of accident, it was in fact, their fault. It was 'The Pax"
(meaning peace), she says a long scientific name of the drug that they
pumped into the air systems all over the modernized world (some planets
are very primitive, old west like, some are shiny and new, modern with
hover cars and such). They were trying to 'weed out aggression'.
But for most it made them just 'do nothing'. They lost all drive, all
feeling, just lay down and died. BUT, some of the people were affected
in a total opposite way. They became aggressive, only more so, worse
than can be imagined. The holographic image ends when we hear them
roaring and breaking into the place she's secured herself, she tries to
kill herself but we see a brief moment when they get her...off camera
we hear her screams and their snarls. The biggest toughest guy in the
group pleads, 'turn if off'.
Now, this is sci-fi, this is from the imagination of a very popular
writer/director. He says his inspiration was from the Civil War stories
of how people coped after a battle that divided a nation, and how
settlers pushed West, and how they came upon some groups of 'savage
peoples' (Native American and ex-soldiers). But I get a hinkier take
from this....we can not trust our government. They do stuff like this
fiction all the time 'for our own good'...they might actually mean
well...but it usually isn't till it's too late that they realize they
were 'playing God' and not doing a very good job of it.
If the CDC thinks that making jokes about a zombie apocalypse is a good
way to get people to 'prepare for the worse'...it just makes me wonder,
'what exactly do they have planned'?
We have so many conspiracy theories out there, from chem trails and
HAARP to putting Fluoride in the water and seeding the skys with
Stronium and Barium...from man-made earthquakes and killer 'vaccines'
which, according to Bill Gates will play a big role in 'population
Are we going to wake up one day to our own form of 'Reavers'? (when I
was on the set, another 'professional' background player was saying she
was a bit confused, since the last time she worked on the film, she
thought it was a 'zombie movie'...she'd obviously been there when they
filmed those scenes).
Will we one day find out that something in our food, our air, our
water, our meds/vacs was put there to 'control us' in some way?
Possibly in some sort of 'mark'? I would not be surprised one bit.
I can only pray that we are gone, outta here by the time things get
that bad. I hope that someone informs the CDC that their attempt at
humor (if it even is), is unprofessional and has them remove their
stupid 'info page'.
