Senta que lá vem história...
(first in portuguese and then english)

OK, incongruente, contraditório, etc... mas, entre as pessoas mais próximas sou visto ultimamente tanto como "fã" do Jack Bauer e da série 24 (hs) quanto como um crítico feroz (desta mesma série e, em especial, das implicações das "mensagens" nela contidas) e, ainda como teorista da conspiração, ou seja, uma espécie de agente duplo ahahahah

Assisti (só parcialmente mas pela TV mesmo!) à primeira temporada (e mais a alguns poucos trechos da segunda) e confesso que me agradava como um interessante seriadinho policial, puro entretenimento, enfim, como deveria ser... mas depois da ficção real do 11 de setembro, fiquei muito decepcionado (pra não dizer PUTOPRACARALHO) com a cooperação das medias de comunicação (pra dizer o mínimo!) em acobertar os autores daquele evento criminoso e por desviar as suspeitas para os radicais islâmicos... enfim, só isso já daria muito pano pra manga mas o que importa é que parei, não só de assistir ao seriado mas, de ver TV em geral.

No meio do ano passado passei numa locadora que estava se desmantelando (aê pirataria!), e comprei um mar de filmes, incluindo três filmes sobre o 9/11 (que aliás foi a minha "desculpa oficial" para o "investimento em pesquisa") e... os sete DVDs da sexta temporada do 24hs, e retomei o contato com mr. Bauer... ok, ok, era e é mesmo parte de uma pesquisa mas o fato é que... viciei mesmo! (...) desde então, já tenho outras três temporadas e, além de estar seco pra ver as outras, já assisti pelo menos duas vezes cada uma! mas... sem perder o foco nem o senso crítico que vai bem além de observar falhas de roteiro, direção ou interpretação dos atores, ou mesmo os ridículos arquétipos das personagens... aliás, nota especial para o que chamo de parte mais divertida dessa coisa (que mereceria uma análise à parte, não fosse a futilidade que é)... a capacidade da Kim Bauer de se meter em roubadas!!! ahahaha

Agora falando sério, in english, 'cause it was the way i wrote this...

The most staggering unanswered question about it is: (if i have so many restrictions, so clear critical thoughts, if i reject, if not all, at least most of the assumptions and pressumptions about terrorists activities, if i know it's function and the great amount of lies that the series poses as "real" possibilities...) why do i like it? ...the answer to this question is probably as mysterious as the question itself...

Despite the fact that i really enjoy to watch this series, i think it's clearly designed to make all that absurd phantasies of terror threat a little bit more plausible... it's not to keep the people in a fear state (for this we already have the TV psy-ops, oops!) but to make them get used to some "possibility" of a terror threat inside their real life, so... when we see someone on the TV news talking about a dirty bomb or about a suitcase nuke, we can have a readymade image of the danger

Anyway, they (Surnow and Cochran troupe) swift as many times as they can the bad guy role, showing so many possibilities in a way that we can't determine who is behind it all, sometimes it's some islamic extremist, then a crazy russian general, then an american corrupt business man, then someone inside the government, the chinese, a turkish terrorist cell, a CTU agent, the Bauer family, etc, etc, etc... (they never dare to get even near the real enemies that really put us on a real terror threat: the banksters and their monetary system!) ...well, they do anything to set our mind to trust ONLY our hero Jack Bauer, cause he's always right, don't mind the bad guy, Jack will kick his ass and save us! ...sometimes with a little help of "our friends", ...Mariners, FBI agents, CIA agents, Federal agents, any local PD, etc, etc, ...and we can always count the President himself as a good guy to back Jack!

Now we come to other purposes of this show: They manage to make we get used to Jack's way (to get the truth?)... i mean, through torture, cruelty, instant death penalty, illegal and/or imoral activities, any bad behavior ...everything's ok if it's end is to save the population from a much bigger threat... sometimes it seems to be the only way to achieve that undelayable need... something like: "come on man, it's Jack Bauer, he's right, he had to do this!" ...almost as that guy in a South Park episode (refering to Michael Jackson's childrem abuses) saying: "oh, come on man, it's Michael Jackson, what's the matter? i don't care if he likes to have some fun with little guys, ...he's Michael Jackson!"

Another issue: they try hard to make us believe that the "terrorists" are, not only everywhere around us, throughout the world (Anyone can be one of them! So, be carefull and don't trust anyone!!!!!) thus, they are very, very, veeeerryyy well equiped, take a look at their gadgets, they have highly sophisticated technology to achieve whatever they want, they can have any and all kinds of weapons they need, they can even have those WMD that we couldn't find with Saddan in Iraq, ...they have it! right over here, on the American soil! ...not to mention all that the awarded writers do to make we get used to every unacceptable law that "may restrict" some civil liberties in the name of protection! ...that's the price of our freedom, dude!

Well, to understand why 24 exists and about the same issues but in a pretty higher level i highly recommend another series (from where i've collected those quotes bellow) the Adam Curtis'

THE POWER OF NIGHTMARES (part one here)(see all three parts!!!)

"In the past, politicians promised to create a better world. They had different ways of achieving this. But their power and authority came from the optimistic visions they offered to their people. Those dreams failed. And today, people have lost faith in ideologies. Increasingly, politicians are seen simply as managers of public life. But now, they have discovered a new role that restores their power and authority. Instead of delivering dreams, politicians now promise to protect us from nightmares. They say that they will rescue us from dreadful dangers that we cannot see and do not understand. And the greatest danger of all is international terrorism. A powerful and sinister network, with sleeper cells in countries across the world. A threat that needs to be fought by a war on terror. But much of this threat is a fantasy, which has been exaggerated and distorted by politicians. It's a dark illusion that has spread unquestioned through governments around the world, the security services, and the international media."

(...) but the reallity is shown at the same research...

"At the end of the 1990s, Osama bin Laden had returned to Afghanistan. He was accompanied by Ayman Zawahiri, the most influential ideologist of the Islamist movement. For 20 years, Zawahiri had struggled to create revolutions in the Arab world, but all attempt had ended in bloody failure."

(...) the 9/11 handcap, beyond the money war contracts, there was a new political profit...

"This is a series of films about how and why that fantasy was created, and who it benefits. At the heart of the story are two groups: the American neoconservatives, and the radical Islamists. Last week's episode ended in the late '90s with both groups marginalized and out of power. But with the attacks of September 11th, the fates of both dramatically changed. The Islamists were virtually destroyed within months, while the neoconservatives took power in Washington. But then, the neoconservatives began to reconstruct the Islamists. They created a phantom enemy. And as this nightmare fantasy began to spread, politicians realized the newfound power it gave them in a deeply disillusioned age. Those with the darkest nightmares became the most powerful."

(...) the simple truth about the terror threat hoax

"Of the 664 people arrested under the Terrorism Act since September the 11th, none of them have been convicted of belonging to Al Qaeda. Only 3 people have so far been convicted of having any association with any Islamist groups, and none of those convictions were for being involved in a terror plot; they were for fundraising, or posessing Islamist literature. The majority of people convicted under the Terrorism Act since September the 11th have actually been members of Irish terrorist groups like the UVF or the Real IRA. And many of the arrests that were dramatically announced as being part of a hidden Al Qaeda network were, in reality, as absurd as the cases in America. For example, the London police swooped on a Mr Zain ul-Abedin who they said was running an international network for terrorist training. It turned out to be a self-defence course for bodyguards."

...then this illusion has brought us to the most unbelievable hoax, the so called "war on terror" ...and this farce is consuming civil rights and toooo muuuuuch money from the scared people.

baby, its cold outside!
