Question: I believe there is a tendency in Hollywood movies to show more humor in action movies, even movies that show a lot of violence. The players use a lot of jokes about the violence they are using. Is there a development that people tend to relax more about violence in the world? Or is it a way to perhaps, in a way perhaps driven by dark forces, to make violence more accepted and acceptable in society?
Answer from the Ascended Master Mother Mary through Kim Michaels. This answer was given during the 2021 Webinar for Russia – Overcoming the consciousness of Superiority and the Sense of Being Unwhole, Traumatized and Focused Outside Oneself.
Well, both are correct in the sense that there is a certain tendency in the world in general where people are getting used to certain phenomena because they are being inundated with them. It used to be that if you go back 20 or 30 years, there might be a movie where there was one act of violence in that entire movie, and it had a certain shock effect.
Then what happens is that in order for the next director, who has an ambition of creating a movie that will be more talked about, well, that director has to have more of a shock effect. So he has to have more violence, either more acts of violence in the same movie or more extreme forms of violence, or they show them in more graphic detail.
You will notice that in older movies, a person might get shot, and there might be a very short glimpse of blood. But there will not be, as you see now, graphic pictures of decomposing bodies or bodies that have been split apart by an explosion. They are simply the effect that people get numbed, and therefore there has to be more and more extreme measures.
But it is very correct that there is a tendency to mix violence and humor. And this is something that is definitely originating with dark forces, who want to make violence seem more acceptable, something that really is not so bad and it may be necessary. And it is, of course, not a trend that is positive from an ascended master perspective. And it is not something you need to encourage by necessarily indulging in these movies. You can of course vote in only one way by not buying or partaking in this kind of content.
It is clear that there are certain dark forces who have this intent of creating more and more violence. And that is why you see that there is, in certain aspects of society, more violence. There is more violence and crime. And there is also a certain attitude of presenting war as a more glorious or heroic, or at least necessary way.
This, of course, you could say was more the case in previous decades. Whereas today, there are at least some movies and TV series that portray the horrors of war in order to give people a more realistic way, or a more realistic view of war. In a sense, you could say that there is a certain necessity of showing the horrors of war, so that people realize that war has a very real human cost. And that it is not a glorious heroic adventure that gives people honor, as I talked about in the book about war.
But on the other hand, clearly, the tendency to mix humor and violence can only come from the dark forces, who attempt to make it more acceptable with violence. This is, of course, a desperate attempt to them because the reality is that in most of the modern nations the population is becoming less and less violent, less and less prone to accept violence in the real world.
The dark forces are desperate to do whatever they can to reverse this trend, but they cannot reverse it because people are becoming more and more aware of the cost of violence, whether it is war, or whether it is mass shootings, or whatever it may be. And there is a growing opposition to violence, a willingness to demand that society stops violence.
