FrankenPC On March - 8 - 2010

I’ve been thinking about how far we as the Human race will need to go to combat greed, corruption, ignorance, and good old fashioned violence.   Will we turn on the pain machine for yet another bloody global war to eradicate all governments with “the crazies”?  Will we continue to push the mass proliferation of information with the hopes it will eventually help us overcome our lesser base instincts?  If global climate change does what scientists fear in our lifetimes…will it be enough to drive us in a positive direction?

What will it take?

In this short video movie, we see one possible solution: Mr Green.

http://www.futurestates.tv/episodes/mister-green

In the disturbingly near future, Venice is submerged, Canal Street in New York City has become a real canal again, and it’s 87 degrees in December in Boston. Catastrophic global warming has moved from theory to fact. At the Biosphere Climate Change Expo, undersecretary for the Department of Global Warming Mason Park (Tim Kang) informs the crowd of scientists and activists that the tipping point has passed, and that they are all at fault.

He tells them that the scientists of the world failed to create the necessary pressure, which would have allowed for the political changes needed to confront global warming. Now the Department of Global Warming has been defunded, drying up research money for climate initiatives.

That night at the hotel bar, Park runs into Dr. Gloria Holtzer (Betty Gilpin), a former graduate school classmate, and one of the scientists who will be losing her grant money. Park blames himself for failing to prevent the climate catastrophe in time, but finds comfort in Holtzer’s arms. However, she has an ulterior motive. Park awakens in the morning and soon realizes that everything has changed.

Holtzer’s ecotech company has developed an entirely new way to confront the challenge of catastrophic global warming — by changing the very nature of the human race itself. And Park has become a very powerful test subject.

Mister Green is a parable about change — both personal and political.

    Hi FrankenPc -- this is just plain weird.

    At the core of the poor man’s dilemma lies the persistence of class and power. You notice SHE did not turn into a veggie. Noooo -- SHE gets to determine who gives up mobility, autonomy, lust for life, energy, intellect, love, hope, sex, dreams, work, creativity. Talk about a persistent vegetative state! But the “change” in “human nature” has NOT occurred since she remains in control of other people, making choices for them, making sure they bend to her will.

    This film is the perfect manifestation of the Trilateral Commission’s 1975 presciption for global dominance. The elites must rule! Of course in 1975 they just wanted to reduce everyone to robots to serve the global machine. But hey -- veggie people will do fine, too. New day, new vision of dominance.

    I wonder if the person (people) who made this film realize how right wing megacorporate their point of view is? I wonder that the person who got veg-o-maticized is ASIAN and the woman is white? Hmmm -- is there a message here? Is there supposed to be a rebellion later (is this a series -- not clear) in which real humanity rises and overthrows their mulch pile? Hope so!

    In sum, I hate it. But I’m really glad you posted it because it allows me to vent how much I hate it and why.

      You’re points are well taken. But have you taken into consideration she infects the top world leaders at the very end?

      True change must come from the bottom up, but acceptance of and execution of the change must come from the top down.

      Now, that’s symbiotic.
