This Past Weeknd

I don’t think you have to be Edward Bernays to see that there was some serious programming going on with The Weeknd’s performance at the Super Bowl this past weekend.

The masked automatons were enough.

I’m pretty damn sure that the people who choreographed that display want you to conform, obey and submit.

What do you think, soldier?

There was some serious subliminal messaging going on there.

I haven’t put it all together yet, but elements which struck me at first glance were the orchestra arranged like a graveyard, the masks, and the disconnected words.

As the performance progresses The Weeknd, always without mask, leads his automatons out of the graveyard through a maze of blinding lights and confusion, to ultimately break out and do what? Become free, but still masked?

The dance is chaotically free at the performance’s end, yet the masks remain – except for The Weeknd.

What are they selling us?

What they are selling us is that the rabble, you, are different from the elites. You will be free but unfree.

Your leaders will be different from you. Your leaders will be permitted to walk without masks.

You will not be free to walk without a mask.

The mask is not only a symbol of conformity, but subservience and obedience.

Those who wear masks are of a lesser class of people.

This is the message from Corporate America.

The Weeknd, of course, is just another tool of Corporate America to sell Corporate America’s vision to you.

His presence at the Super Bowl is evidence of that.

Reject this vision.

Now as for the words that I can decipher. Feel, Nothing, Gone, Turn, Alone, Hours, Touch, Your Mind, Long, Enough.

Many of these words are in the lyrics to the song that is sung, but some are not.

The words are disjointed and should be carefully considered as individual key words.

I suspect they are not there by accident. Moreover, they’re not connected in a logical way that the lyrics to the song might dictate.

What they’re saying to me is this: I should feel nothing, I should touch nothing. My mind is gone. Enough now. Turn. Change. Be alone.

But let’s be fair.

The Weeknd is an extremely talented performer, and I enjoyed the performance. I have watched it many, many times now.

I like him.

I like the way The Weeknd sings and moves.

And I thought the graphics were bad ass.

Still, am I being programmed here?

I think so.

Sincerely,
