(NaturalNews) I'm always amused at the things the mainstream media selectively chooses to avoid reporting, and when it comes to Elliott Rodger, there are some deep, dark secrets the mainstream media won't dare mention. It turns out that Rodger was the product of media programming in a soulless, materialistic culture that has abandoned compassion, morals, ethics and self development in favor of symbols of wealth (such as driving a BMW).
Let's look at the role of the media in celebrating the death of young people and desensitizing us all to death through Hollywood film and television shows. Rodger, in particular, was reportedly the son of an Assistant Director who worked on the Hunger Games films: a series that depicts young people killing each other as a survival sport in a dystopian police state society.
That movie, as important as the message is for resistance against government tyranny and Orwellian oppression, nevertheless desensitizes us against acts of violence against children. But this is just the beginning of a system of cultural programming that produces psychopathic killers like Elliott Rodger...
Ripped right out of an episode of DexterThere are also seemingly countless television shows these days that openly celebrate death and murder. The show Dexter, for example, celebrates the life of a "revenge killer" who meticulously plans his murders, but who only murders "people who deserve it" such as other killers, rapists, etc.
In fact, the cold, calculated strategy of Rodger eerily resembles that of the star in the Dexter television series. As Rodgers explains in his own manifesto: (1)
The first people I would have to kill are my two housemates, to secure the entire apartment for myself as my personal torture and killing chamber... After that, I will start luring people into my apartment, knock them out with a hammer, and slit their throats. I will torture some of the good looking people before I kill them, assuming that the good looking ones had the best sex lives.
In other words, Rodger sees himself playing the morally justified role of killing women who deserve to be killed, in his own mind. Although he is clearly twisted and demented at some level, TV shows like Dexter drive home the message that "it's okay to kill people if they deserve it."
American Psycho star as his role model?It also seems that Elliott Rodger took great inspiration from a film called American Psycho in which the "hero" mutilates and murders prostitutes after sleeping with them.
"In another of his clips he appears to reference the film American Psycho, and it might be that he has taken the main character, Patrick Bateman, as a role model," reports the Daily Mail (2)
Dr. Adam Lankford, author of that story in the Daily Mail, writes, "Elliot Rodger was trying to act out the role of a film star when he went on his killing spree."
Yes, it was movies and modern-day "on screen culture" that provided Rodger with inspiration to be a cold-blooded. Imagine how different the outcome might have been if he instead found inspiration from something like a church group, or volunteerism or even a youth music band.
