(1) Horror movies.

I'll tell you the ones I like the most.
(2) For me, true horror is the loss of individuality, irrationality, dishonesty, alienation, and the inability to communicate.
(3) I was never into PHYSICAL horror.

As a child, I so much of the real thing that no film could ever top it.
(4) I despise sadism.

Thus I haven't seen the vast majority of horror movies that people recommend.
(5) The director David Cronenberg was famous for physical horror.
(6) He had an epiphany that I'm pretty sure most people would never have.
(7) Cronenberg realized that everything he'd done in his movies is now available FOR REAL on multiple Websites.

Murders, car accidents, terrorism.
(8) In my entire life, I've watched only ONE jihadist beheading video.

I did so because I had to know what the real thing looked like so I could debunk an Islamic State fraud.
(9) Virtually ALL of the most infamous Islamic State videos are fake.

They DID kill the prisoners, but not in the way seen on camera.

Why did they fake the videos?
(10) Two reasons:

One is control.

The Islamic State presented its victims as passive, unable to resist.

They accomplished this by MIMING the murders. most of what you see is computer-generated imagery (CGI).
(11) The Islamic State put out two videos of the murder of Royal Jordanian Air Force pilot Lieutenant Moath Youssef al-Kasasbeh.

When you compare identical frames, you see that the flames are completely different.

The flames are animated.
(12) Multiple continuity errors show that the death scenes were mimed and filmed several times.

For example, in one film he holds the sixth cage bar, while in another he holds the seventh.
(13) The Islamic State promises prisoners their lives if they cooperate.

Then the prisoner is killed after the videos are made.
(14) The second reason the Islamic State faked their videos is that reality doesn't look like what people expect.

Movies have corrupted our ability to judge what's real and what isn't.
(15) Since I don't watch physical horror movies, my perception hasn't been corrupted.

I can tell fake from real.
(16) You can apply this concept pretty much across the board.

Entertainment itself has utterly corrupted our ability to determine what's real and what isn't.

Prosecutors call it the "CSI Effect."

Jurors now expect NO doubt rather than "beyond a reasonable doubt."
(17) The general public is no longer reasonable.

That's why conspiracy theories have taken hold.
(18) There's a wall between me and people who believe in ridiculous fantasy.

We can't communicate.

But that's fine by me.
(19) I like low-key things.

I like calmness.
(20) When you remain calm, you're better at perceiving reality.

A video from the Lebanese army.

(21) Of course the video itself is a very powerful statement.

But did you notice THIS?
(22) They've censored a vehicle behind the soldier.
(23) They also censored tracks in the earth.

It's some kind special-forces gun truck.

Something like this.
(24) We're getting VERY close to the end of the Iranian mullahs and all their lackeys.
(25) I've seen enough horror in my life, which is why I concentrate on beauty.

A free Middle East will be beautiful...
