Deconstructing the Movies of George Lucas: part 2

Who would’ve thought that over 10 years out of school I would be writing essays and papers for fun.

“Luke, you’re going to find that many of the truths we cling to depend greatly on our own point of view.” -Obi-Wan.
My point of view, my interests, in this deconstruction analysis lies mostly in the historical, political, and artistic aspects of the Star Wars films. I would go further and also add that many of our truths depend on how much info you have. The more info, the more knowledge. I’m not saying I know ALL, but I do a lot of research; I’m not pulling things out of my ass. And, here, in this part 2 little re-introduction, I write this for people who can think for themselves, have a curiosity for research, and true die-hard fans of Star Wars and other movies.

In Episode 4, Luke and Obi-Wan find the Jawa’s sand crawler in smoldering ruins. Luke assumes it was the Sand People, but Obi-Wan knows what’s up. The evidence shows it was storm troopers.

In episode 1, the Battle of Naboo starts with the invasion of the Trade Federation army, but we know what really went down. Naboo’s own senator Palpatine tells the Neimoidians what to do.

Zam Wesell, via Jango Fett and Dooku, attempted to assassinate Padme at the beginning of episode 2. Basically, the Sith again.

Palpatine created both the droid army as well as the clone army. He uses Dooku to rally the Trade Federation and other Separatists to continue to make the droid army, and uses JedI Master Sifo-Dyas (according to Wookieepedia) to make a clone army, with Tyrannus/Dooku overseeing that as well. And Palpatine creates other lies for the senate and public to get their votes. Compartmentalization. The lie is different at every level. The right hand doesn't know what the left is doing. Like 2 parties, 2 opposing sides are both controlled by the same shadowy body. The whole Clone Wars is a big contrivance to make Palpatine emperor. The classic Star Wars is the real war, when the rebellion finally wake up and see the light.

A False Flag operation is an operation that is blamed on another country's or entity's “flag.” A big frame up to deceive the public. And I would also call a provocation to attack a false flag because it’s the same entity starting it and manipulating things. So, why do that? Look at who stands to gain what. They do this mostly to seem like victims of an enemy attack, thus justifying war, but really to gain either natural resources, territory, to overthrow regimes to put in an obedient puppet leader, war profiteer, etc.

As a general tactic, it goes by several names. The same entity creating the problem is the same entity providing the solution (AKA problem-reaction-solution, AKA the Hegelian Dialectic, AKA Thesis, Antithesis and Synthesis). Polarizing sides of an issue are created to have a predetermined outcome.

There are many real-world examples on most so-called "terrorism" that then leads to an intended outcome. Nazi leader Hermann Goering at the Nuremberg trials said, “Of course the people don’t want war. But after all, it’s the leaders of the country who determine the policy, and it’s always a simple matter to drag the people along whether it’s a democracy, a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship. Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism, and exposing the country to greater danger.” So, Operation Himmler and the Gleiwitz incident, where Nazis framed Poles, gave Nazi Germany justification to invade Poland, which started WW2. And then the Reichstag Fire was started (some question) by the Nazis but blamed on the Commies, but it cannot be questioned that it begat the Reichstag Fire Decree (which resembles The USAPATRIOT act) and Enabling Act, giving emergency powahs (Jar-Jar voice) to Hitler. [However, the bigger picture for WW2 is that it begat the UN, IMF, and World Bank.] Hitler said, “Make the lie big, make it simple, keep saying it, and eventually they will believe it.” The Big Lie is a propaganda tactic. Joeseph Goebbels said. “If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.”

There are many false flags throughout history. Lucas often sites the Vietnam War as an influence, so the Gulf of Tonkin manipulation was definitely in his mind. Many CIA plots blamed and created a communist terror. The proposed Operation Northwoods. Bay of Pigs. Operation Ajax. This is the phantom menace -- a phantom terrorist. Whatever is played over and over in mainstream corporate media is always suspicious. The US created Bin Laden and Saddam Hussein. The obvious inside job of 9/11 (or should be obvious to anyone who has studied implosions and building structure -- for any doubt on Al-CIA-da there’s plenty of material out there, like the BBC’s The Power of Nightmares, and Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth’s 9/11: Blueprint for Truth) led to a lie of WMD’s, in a country, Iraq, irrelevant of Bin Laden (who is publicly blamed but not even attributed to 9/11 on the FBI's own wanted list), the vague name-changing unending War on Terror, leading to soft-fascism for Americans, reducing civil liberties.

So-called “domestic terrorism” in the real world are mostly false flags. Ruby Ridge and Waco are interesting weird and sad incidents involving the military and media whitewash. Oklahoma City’s bombing had a bomb squad removing unexploded bombs within the building when the blame was on McVeigh's van on the sidewalk. In a 1999 civil trial the government and police are officially blamed for murdering MLKjr. JFK reeks of CIA. The recent Xmas/underwear bomber was escorted onto the plane without a passport by a “well-dressed” CIA handler. The recent Portland’s bomber had FBI involvement. Countless other “domestic terrorists” were created and entrapped with government aid and then fueled by corporate propaganda media news(1,2,3). Keep repeating the lies, and the public will believe the lies. The public is lazy enough to not research and think for themselves. What comes out of this? Because they think people actually bought the so-called domestic terrorism, the US feels it’s justified to a soft-fascistic crackdown on US citizen’s rights: with Michael Chertoff’s conflict of interest body scanners for the TSA, and their VIPR teams, TSA invading Wal-marts, hotels, malls, and superbowls now, anti-gun laws, Obama’s internet kill switch, Obama's citizen kill list, FDA control on farms (like Bigg's warning to Luke about their farm in Empire control in an Episode 4 deleted scene), data-mining (an aspect of the big brother world in another Lucas film, THX1138), targeting dissenters, limiting free speech. (see Naomi Wolf’s 10 steps to fascism work)

And the thing about anti-gun laws and gun confiscation, as they did in New Orleans, is that they want to disarm the public so they can’t have an American Revolution part 2. Maybe this is why all the Rebel Alliance’s equipment and vehicles look jerry-rigged from spare parts or captured vehicles. The Poles militia fought the Nazis with captured Nazi weapons.

By episode 4, the Emperor puts regional governors in power.
Governor Tarkin:”The imperial senate will no longer be of any concern to us. I have just received word that the emperor has dissolved the council permanently. The last remnants of the old Republic have been swept away.”
General Tagge:“That’s impossible. How will the emperor maintain control without the bureaucracy?”
Governor Tarkin:”The regional governors now have direct control over their territories. Fear will keep the local systems in line -- fear of this battle station.” Appointed, as in unelected, governors ensure direct orders from the dictator are carried out, bypassing state‘s rights. The Romans and Nazis had regional governors. In a state of emergency in the US, there is FEMA and the continuity of government. FEMA has already divided the country in regions on a map on FEMA’s own website; the federal districts were created by Nixon. Look up Obama’s Council of Governors executive order. Kiss state’s rights goodbye.

A police state looks like Mos Eisley, with intimidating stormtroopers walking around, asking,”Let me see your identification,” like Nazis asking for “your papers, please.” Being suspected automatically creates the feeling of guilt, or subordination by fear. The founding fathers of the US felt you have a right to privacy to feel safe. Illegal search and seizure, invading your privacy, basically being guilty until proven innocent is already permitted in the USAPATRIOT act and other legislation. I just heard they're currently trying to quietly make the PATRIOT act permanent. Obama wants an internet ID. They were writing a Homegrown Terrorism act and calls for indefinite detention. The MIAC report targets civilians for just having certain alternative views and beliefs, like a thought police. Dissenters are targeted; seen as treasonous enemies to state. Despite freedom of speech, if you question the government, they arrest you. And Americans have been arrested for that. Sounds like communism, fascism; all that. However, it will fall apart the more people acknowledge the phantom menace/terror.

A fascist state deals in absolutes; one cannot question authority. Their way or the highway. Bad Anakin goes, “If you’re not with me, then you’re my enemy.” Obi-wan replies, “Only a Sith deals in absolutes.” After 9/11, Bush said to the rest of the world, “If you are not with us, you are with the terrorists.” Wow. No one one in the world can be neutral? On climategate, Gore and Obama kept saying, “The science is settled.” Really? You can’t have a discussion with the 30,000 scientists suing Gore and address all the errors in Gore’s movie? Remember the Black shirts and Brown shirts.

Just like in classic freemasonic double-speak, in episode 3, the Emperor appears benevolent, saying things like, “In order to ensure our security and continuing stability, the Republic will be reorganized into the first Empire, for a safe and secure society…” Hitler said the same glowing protective and patriotic stuff -- doesn’t mean anything… for its citizens. US safety and (Homeland, a word Hitler would loved, along with Fatherland) security as wartime solutions are given as reasons, but legislation and actions say otherwise. The root of the problem is who really is behind the phantom terror that we need to be safe and secure from.

“Fear” is huge in the Star Wars movies. “Fear will keep the local systems in line,” Tarkin said. “I sense much fear in you.” Yoda says to Anakin. Everyone talks about it all the friggin time, because it’s true that tyrannical governments throughout history feel the need to do this to keep people in line. However, the whole trick is to let go of fear, gain knowledge to be aware and not fear, and do all the things Obi-Wan and Yoda says. More on that later.

However much evidence there is of possible martial law (1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11,12,13,14,15,16,17,18), the reality is IMO there is not enough of a military force to keep everyone under control -- there’s too many people, for now. So until they depopulate the place to a manageable size, they need to coerce citizens to do their work for them. Bring in the rats. Rat out your friends and family.

Lando Calrissian turns his friends in to Darth Vader. Homeland Security is trying to get citizens to turn on each other by partnering with Walmart, malls and hotels with their PSA announcements, and “See Something, Say Something“ and “Stop. Think. Connect.” propaganda campaigns. They say paying in cash is suspicious. Taking photos is suspicious. How in the world the Nazis got its own German citizens to work for them is NOT surprising, really. I think Lando was bribed, and naive, but it's still about civilians turning in civilians. (1,2,3,)

In the Empire Strikes Back commentary, Lucas says, “…with Lando….by making a pact with the devil, he’s not gonna win. It’s gonna get worse and worse and worse for him. The more he appeases Darth Vader, the more he joins, and the more things he does, the worse his situation keeps getting…he’s on a route he can’t get out of.”
