I’m a big fan of the Twilight Zone… watch it every night.
Last nights episode was so good, I just had to share! 😀
Rod Serling giving his social/political commentary in his entertaining fashion at its best! It deals with themes of Orwellian totalitarianism, euthanasia, collectivism and religion. The fascist State determines whether people are obsolete or not (they determined that with God first) and if they are, they get liquidated.
“You walk into this room at your own risk, because it leads to the future; not a future that will be, but one that might be. This is not a new world: It is simply an extension of what began in the old one. It has patterned itself after every dictator who has ever planted the ripping imprint of a boot on the pages of history since the beginning of time. It has refinements, technological advances, and a more sophisticated approach to the destruction of human freedom. But like every one of the super states that preceded it, it has one iron rule: Logic is an enemy, and truth is a menace.”
“The Chancellor – the late Chancellor – was only partly correct. He was obsolete. But so was the State, the entity he worshiped. Any state, any entity, any ideology that fails to recognize the worth, the dignity, the rights of man, that state is obsolete. A case to be filed under ‘M’ for mankind in the Twilight Zone.”
RELATED must sees! :
