Once upon a time there were some serious authors who speculated upon a hidden bloodline. In 1982, Michael Baigent, Richard Leigh, and Henry Lincoln published The Holy Blood and the Holy Grail. Jesus had married Mary Magdalene was the theory. Children were born from the union. 
Slowly the theory gained momentum and eventually became a Hollywood extravaganza.
Not at first a Hollywood extravaganza was the 1986 movie, Blue Velvet. “Although initially polarising some mainstream critics, the film is now widely acclaimed as one of the greatest films of the 1980s…”  I chanced upon the Blue Velvet movie last night on Netflix. “Well, Dennis Hopper is in it, so it might be okay,” I decided. Wow! How had I missed seeing this film, back in the day?
Maybe to boost sales the Blue Velvet movie could have done some product placement, like in the “smash hit”, Furious 7. Tire ads subtly helped Furious 7. “Get up to $70 Back and Go to the Movies with Furious 7 and General Tire!” advertised General Tire. General Tire has the same tires used in Furious 7! Wow! People flocked to see Furious 7. (Background: Paganini and the Bell Curve, Ersjdamoo’s Blog, April 16, 2015.)
Two “Wows!” are present. A “bell curve” minority were wowed by Blue Velvet. A “bell curve” majority were wowed by Furious 7.
Not a Hollywood extravaganza yet is a supposed extraterrestrial alien “found” in a painting by Leonardo DaVinci, the Mona Lisa. By folding the Mona Lisa and applying filtering, a three-foot tall spaceman has been found! I call this the inkblot interpretation. You put an inkblot on paper, fold the paper upon itself, and get a suggestive image. Some psychiatrists use this to get clues about their patients. What’s in the inkblot is not important; what’s in the patient’s mind is.
So a psychiatric inkblot test is performed with the Mona Lisa and – no surprise – the patient sees a three-foot tall spaceman. Yet a British newspaper, The Express, plays it up like the “conspiracy theorists” are all onboard for this one. “Conspiracy theorists” are made to look ridiculous, and maybe that is the whole point of the report by Britain’s Express. 
Which “conspiracy theories” get played up big by the mainstream media? Often it is the most idiotic which are, like “Alien Found in Mona Lisa”. Who knows? Maybe one branch of mainstream media is assigned the job of inventing balderdash “conspiracy theories” and another branch of MSM is assigned the job of reporting on them. Maybe it is a Tweedledum/Tweedledee situation. Any serious “conspiracy theories”, like the inching toward military conflict with Russia, are either misreported or ignored. The final effect is to marginalize any serious thought about what is going on and equate such thinkers with “Alien Found in Mona Lisa”.
Danger of military conflict with Russia? Oh that is just a “conspiracy theory.” You know, “spaceman found in Mona Lisa.” Ha, ha, ha.
“And anyway, the young people of America would never stand for a return of the draft, so worries about war in Europe are academic,” opine many.
But they wouldn’t need to bring back “selective service.” All they’d need is to say, “Enlist for a two-year hitch and your student loan debts are erased.” That would bring in plenty of cannon fodder for the enterprise. (Cannon fodder is an informal, derogatory term for combatants who are regarded or treated as expendable in the face of enemy fire. )
And the “student loan draft” would solve the surplus labor problem. The cannon fodder would be lured in by forgiveness of student loans. Some would survive the war with Russia, but many would not. This in turn would decrease the number of “missing workers”, not counted as unemployed. “Americans Not In The Labor Force Rise To Record 93,194,000,” reports ZeroHedge . 93 million! What a lot of cannon fodder we have! Look out, Russia! Here they come!
