# 1 So I Watched Idiocracy...
07-03-2014, 10:55 PM
And after I watched it I took a good long look at the world around me and thought "the future is now"!

It was a hilarious movie by the way and the intro was just so true!

It's definitely, imho, a movie that is hilarious and sad at the same time...that mix of heh and meh.

I saw that movie when it came out, it has been a source of my nightmares for over a decade.


When I was seeing my psychologist, after the USMC, I would rant about the world turning into an Idiocracy.

She thought I had cleverly made that name up....I told her at one point I wasn't going to make another appointment until she watched that movie.

She did.

And I spent my next session consoling her about how the world is turning into Idiocracy.

Idiocracy is not the future I want, but the future I'm going to get.

And do you want to know the sad part? It is already happening.

It is happening.


Oh gods, it really is happening isn't it?


Why can't it be some other movie we're morphing into as a species?? Like...hellfire, I'd take most any other movie future over that one...even one directed by JJ!

I wonder if that is why they made Khan and the augments in the first place, to control all the idiotic humans around them and wipe out the ones they thought were imperfect. It would correlate to what Kahn said in Into Darkness.

There was one theory I read that Whedon's Idiocracy was the "Earth that was" in Firefly.


And that the people in Firefly were all the smart folks who left Earth to find a new home, leaving Earth to the morons.
