Movie Review: The Day The Earth Stood Still (2008)

by The Ghost

(Note: This is not a typical movie review. Instead of focusing on traditional elements such as plotline, direction, acting, etc., it focuses primarily on the propagandistic elements of the film and may contain spoilers.)

Intergalactic New Age Communism

The remake of the classic science fiction movie The Day The Earth Stood Still is an intergalactic New Age communist tour de force. Many of the familiar tenets of the now all-too-familiar New World Order project are present. Anyone familiar with works such as Behold A Pale Horse, The Report From Iron Mountain, Set Up & Sold Out and Envoys of Mankind will not be surprised by anything in the film except perhaps how blatant the messages are.

Motivating Basic Allegiance

The Report From Iron Mountain explains in great technical detail that the establishment of totalitarian control over a society requires a “genuinely menacing” common enemy. If the goal is control of the entire planet, this requires an “apparent threat to the survival of the [human] species” itself, specifically threats that can be dealt with “only through social organization and political power.” Furthermore, in order to be effective at “motivating basic allegiance,” the common threat(s) must imply an “immediate, tangible, and directly felt threat of destruction.” As a substitute for war (the current method), the report goes on to list several possible scenarios, either real or fabricated, which may be seized upon in order to consolidate power. Among these are “an omnipresent, virtually omnipotent international police force,” “an established and recognized extraterrestrial menace” and “massive global environmental pollution.” (Incidentally, whether or not this report is authentic is immaterial. The truth of its conclusions is irrefutable.)

Uniting The Nations

In Behold A Pale Horse, author William Cooper revealed that certain powerful one-worlders are well aware of the strategy of propagating artificial threats, including from outer space, in order to unite mankind under a world government. In that book is a reproduction of an excerpt from the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace Publication No. 15 (New York, 1917), in which John Dewey, Professor of Philosophy at Columbia University, is quoted as saying, “‘Someone remarked that the best way to unite all the nations on this globe would be an attack from some other planet. In the face of such an alien enemy, people would respond with a sense of their unity of interest and purpose. We have the next thing to that at the present time [World War I]. …What a few dreamers hoped might happen in the course of some slow coming century has become an accomplished fact in a few swift years. In spite of geographical distance, unlike speech, diverse religion, and hitherto independent aims, nations from every continent have formed what for the time being is nothing less than a world state, an immense cooperative action in behalf of civilization.’”

A New Era

The Day The Earth Stood Still (2008) combines essentially all of this into one slick package. In the movie, a giant spacecraft – a huge glowing orb – descends slowly like a falling star into Central Park in Manhattan. Other spheres soon land at various locations across the globe. New York and cities worldwide are evacuated under fear of an imminent alien invasion. Religious communities see the coming of the sphere as the apocalypse, the “sign of a new era, or perhaps even the end of the world.”

Who Speaks For Planet Earth?

An extraterrestrial being named Klaatu, who was carried to Earth in the giant sphere and has assumed human form, is soon in military custody (along with his giant robot “peacekeeper”). The U.S. government is represented in the movie by the Secretary of Defense and it is made perfectly clear from the beginning that the United States government and military are the villains. While being questioned by the SecDef, Klaatu explains that he “represents a group of civilizations,” and that he will only explain his purposes to “a gathering of world leaders not far from here [i.e., the United Nations].” When the SecDef requests that he explain himself then and there, he challenges, “Do you speak for the entire human race?”

Earth In The Balance

At one point the heroine, a scientist “detained” by the government in the face of the crisis, asks the “visitor” why he came. He says, “I came to save the Earth. … The human race is killing the planet.” Shocked, the woman gapes, “You didn’t come to save us?” He repeats, “I came to save the Earth.” The Earth has reached the “tipping point,” says Al Gore’s alien counterpart. “We have to act.” The woman begs, “Please, we can change. We can change!” “The decision’s been made. The process has begun.” The alien ambassador has decided that the human race must be sacrificed for the “greater good.” The small spherical craft which have landed all over the world in various strategic points begin collecting animals for transport off the planet. Shortages of fuel, food and water spark riots and chaos worldwide.

Biological Altruism

In a desperate bid to convince the extraterrestrial tyrant to change his mind, the heroine takes him to visit one of her old professors, a leader in the field of “biological altruism.” (And that simple phrase should tell you all you need to know about what this movie is really all about.) The professor understands the situation perfectly. “We have to evolve in order to survive,” he says. And “it is only on the precipice that people find the will to change.” Of course, this is directly in line with The Report From Iron Mountain. It is also in line with Mikhail Gorbachev’s Earth Charter Green Cross Philosophy. This document states under Principle 14: Global Sovereignty, “The protection of the Biosphere, as the Common Interest of Humanity, must not be subservient to the rules of state sovereignty, demands of the free market or individual rights. The idea of Global Sovereignty must be supported by a shift in values which recognize this Common Interest.”

(At one point in the movie, in an explicit and ominous endorsement of New Age ideology, this “illumined” representative of spacekind civilization states that “Nothing ever truly dies… Everything is simply transformed.” Of course, that is the kind of thinking that allowed the occult-crazed German National Socialists to slaughter 11 million people.)

Hollywood Goes “Green”

It’s not a coincidence that major Hollywood movies are increasing their illuminist environMENTAL propaganda. In 2008, the year this movie was released, movers and shakers in the film industry held the 2nd annual Hollywood Goes Green conference, which “brings together the entertainment biz with environmental issues, to ‘offer industry insiders a forum to collaborate and develop partnerships for a sustainable future.’” According to one of the event organizers, “‘An Inconvenient Truth’ had a major impact on the entertainment industry to the point where every studio now has a VP for sustainability or environmental process.”
