So just what is the last resort of madmen? The unthinkable, the unimaginable? No, it’s all been done before and we’ve all thought of what could be. It’s only the scale of horror that varies.
Just how far does Hollywood go in its predictive programming? The latest is ABC’s “Last Resort.” A scenario of false flags, rogue military where killing one’s own is a means to an end, nuclear war and of course…the good guys.
Are we being played for the future of a military coup with competing factions? Is the show similar to the ‘Lone Gunman’ 9/11 episode but with a new spin and having Pakistan as the fall guy instead of Iran? The message will never be dead on target, only close.
Perhaps it is as simple as catering to the ever increasing number of ‘conspiracy theorists.’ Perhaps as we sit on our couches and watch the TV version of beginnings of a real new war we’ll be saying “But where are the good guys, that show said there are some.” Yeah, where indeed are the ‘good guys.’
There’s probably no need in watching future episodes of “Last Resort.” This one may be telling us all we will ever need to know…or what the powers that be through their programmers want us to know.
