They live we sleep
By A.J. Castellitto



"They're targeting the kids and they're telling them how to think." – Roddy Piper

In the year 1988, a bizarre, low budget, sci-fi thriller burst onto the movie scene, landing at the top of the box office. A few weeks later, it disappeared...


They Live features the late Roddy Piper – the former professional wrestler who died suddenly of a heart attack at the age of 61 just a few days ago – as an unknown, unnamed drifter officially credited as one 'Nada.' They Live is another one of those prophetic big screen offerings of the past (e.g. Rollerball http://www.westernjournalism.com/past-cinematic-glimpse-future-dystopia/ ) with an urgent message that resonates now more than ever.


Vigilance and moral clarity are the biggest threats to those who seek to manipulate and agitate. Charges of insanity and conspiracy are a common tactic applied to divert and ultimately thwart a truth rebellion.

Like good secular automatons we are to Consume, Obey, Conform, Buy, Sleep and Watch...TV...lots of it.

Swallow their message and leave all independent thought, especially faith based reality, buried deep underground. Our docility, appeasement, and pliability is their agenda realized. Our ignorance is their gain.


So be sure to keep your questions and suspicions in check. We wouldn't want to challenge or disrupt the status quo. We must be content in our land of make believe. Utopia is at hand, and with each OBEY comes a greater command...



"Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting. And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not. As we have therefore opportunity, let us do good unto all men, especially unto them who are of the household of faith." – Galatians 6
