HOLLYWOOD & THE NEW ETHOS: How modern myths are changing us & the Death of the Hero’s Journey

How do movies impact us & how have the stories changed in our times?


Hollywood’s agenda is omnipresent in our culture, permeating all aspects of society - proliferated by the popular movies and series of the day. Modern movies are laced with sensationalist propaganda, with entertainment value fit for only the narrowest minds - the ancient arts of storytelling diluted into predictable and repetitive political narratives.


Even the most robust and deeply entrenched mythological narratives of the past - like the HERO’S JOURNEY - have become polluted and altered to befit a new generation of consumers.


BUT WHAT HAPPENED TO THE HERO’S JOURNEY? WHY HAS IT BEEN DESECRATED?


Once upon a time society needed HEROES - people to go fight wars and to build the nations - but what they need now more than ever is SIMPS, whimps, deluded consumers who merely BELIEVE and never ACHIEVE.


SOCIETY TODAY NO LONGER WANTS TO BREED HEROES!


They ruined Star Wars for this very purpose - and was illustrated perfectly. The female lead, Rey, doesn’t need a teacher and doesn’t even need to train because she is ALREADY SUPERIOR without even trying!


CONSIDER What this is teaching the kids… This is a mindset that breeds “STAY HOME - you’re ALREADY A HERO!” You don’t need to try for SUCCESS - name, fame and glory are yours by birthright.


THIS IS AN EXTREMELY DAMAGING NARRATIVE FOR YOUNG PEOPLE.


HOW will they transcend these stories? How will they embark upon THEIR JOURNEY? How will they find the necessary guidance in order to have the VERY BEST CHANCE OF SUCCEEDING IN REAL LIFE?


Unless the youth WAKE UP from the bespelling narratives they’re being spoon-fed by hollywood - it is not hard to imagine if there will be ANY HEROES LEFT in 2020 and beyond.
