February 14.th was global launch day for the Netflix series House Of Cards season 2. How do I know that? Because it was front page news around the world.
The return of a Netflix series as front-page news? Why? To blur the gap between entertainment and reality, so when reality is in motion, you would think of it as fiction…clever.
They want us to see it obviously, and since Netflix is a global phenomenon they want the world to see it. They want you to identify and approve of the Sociopath in politics. I think they did a real good job.
In House Of Cards Kevin Spacey plays the character of Francis J. Underwood. The sociopath.
I have to stand in awe of Kevin Spacey´s skills as an actor. It´s probably the best acting I have ever laid my eyes on. He´s in the Jack Nicholson league with this and had Nicholson not retired, he would have been equally good.
That’s where the mind-bending begins.
You cannot lure the viewers in if it’s badly performed. And it is brilliant the way they bend the mind to: Sympathy, endorsement, silent approval of a murdering lying scumbag like Francis J. Underwood.
Spacey is the incarnation of testosterone and omnipotence. But he is multifaceted.
The powerghoul toning of body language is smoothened out by the way he moves. He moves like a cat. Letting you know that there is a feminine side to him. There is not.
He cares about: Power, His Wife and Barbecue Ribs.
After spending 26 hours in his company, it still eludes me if he´s capable of loving. If he shows it, he does it as a display of emotions, I´m not sure it’s real. And that elusiveness is exactly his strength and so far: Not his weakness.
His marriage is a marriage of Power positioning and his wife Claire Underwood, played by Robin Wright, is equally psychopathic but in an introverted way. Robin Wright actually manages to downsize her acting through 26 episodes to 4 facial expressions all very much disconnected. Also when she looks at her husband. She is the chilling Ice Queen.
She is the only one he will listen to and the only one who can boost him with strength to carry on when his demonical manipulations are exposed, as she does near the ending of season 2, where Spacey as Vice President has lost the president’s trust. Her push gives him the fuel to go for the presidency and he gets it.
To snare us further into identification Spacey uses the camera.
He wants you on his side and in order not to come out as blatantly repulsive he makes you his ally, his confidant, and he confides with the viewer by addressing the camera.
Telling you his strategy, his apparently inner thoughts, and what he really thinks of the people he engages with through the series. But he does the same to you as he does to the people he crosses guards with. You can’t really trust him although he wants to befriend you this way, and yet, you’re hooked.
What’s he´s really doing is coaching the viewer how to manipulate people. Watch out for that coaching.
His wife makes an epic betrayal on a former lover in season 2. Spacey tells you up front, eye contact: “I don’t know whether to be proud or terrified.”
The couple has an understanding: They can engage with others sexually as long as they ‘cover their tracks’. Reptilian.
As season 2 starts Spacey goes high impact on that mechanic of befriending the viewer, since he doesn’t talk to you until the very last minute. You have been waiting for this and he suddenly addresses you via the camera by saying: ‘Did you think I’ve forgotten about you?’
That’s how he plays his game with the people he destroys in the series. Leaving them in the cold, depending on him, and suddenly by the strike of lightning: They are forgiven and back in his southern joviality and polite reliability.
He abruptly throws his mistress Zoe in front of a subway train. This comes as a shock to the viewer, since Zoe might be an opportunist, but she’s one a few people in the gallery of planets orbiting sun Spacey, that actually has integrity.
Spacey turns to the camera and tells you like this: “Oh, it’s okay to kill a kitten, you see: kittens become cats with claws that one-day can make you bleed.” He wants you to understand his means of prevention and I´m sure some will.
If you are not aware of The Matrix and The Control System this is poison to your soul.
If you are aware of these entities; House Of Cards is like another Blockbuster series ‘Scandal’ a study into the anatomy of the Oligarchs and how the power system is designed: a playground and a manual for the most blatant psychopath in how to gain power by abusing it. Ring a bell?
The House Of Cards creators could state: “Yes it’s dramatized and so are the wrong doings.” Really, what it brings to mind here is the Clintons and I won’t be one bit surprised if the series down the path would exchange Spacey as President with his Wife as head of state. So it’s an endorsement.
I read that Washington politicians wanted Netflix to air the series before the set date due to snowstorms in the US and the weather in England because: People were trapped in their home and could use the entertainment. Really!
They are so certain that the veil between fiction and reality is blurred, while doing their best to make it headline news to further distort the line between fiction and reality.
They don’t think we see through that.
Oh, we do.
A series like this isn’t just a series. Its education of the masses into accepting the Reptilian Strategy of the political elite.
And the Real Life ‘president’ of the United States calls for no spoilers, he´s such a fan.
So, we can safely ad that hopper to the stew.
