I don’t normally watch a secular film, but on this occasion... I just watched a film named ‘Divergent’ (rated ‘12’ and no foul language etc) (2014). I bought it for £3 in a superstore (Tesco? Asda?) because of what I suspected was the concept... brainwashing by PC methods. (Please note I am not saying that the film 'Divergent' is in anyway edifying for a Christian. Watch at your own discretion.)
And I was right.
It made me shudder, because it contains strong elements of fascism – something I have fought against for years. In the film young people were persuaded by psychological pressure (which they did not realise was there) to conduct mass shootings of people not wanted in the walled city. Those who were considered ‘divergent’ were sought out and thrown outside the city walls and killed. The symbolism was accurate and heavy, reminding me of Nazi Germany and ISIS who brainwash people to do what they would not normally do, including murder (actual psychology trials confirm people are willing to do this). Basically, it shows what happens when a few individuals do not comply with the (fascist) rule and demands of a very few, just like today. It also displayed very strong PC commands by people in power. For me, the violence portrayed mimics Nazi rule.
