The clear and consistent message for children that is embedded in the Transformer series, and all the many comic-book movies of the same genre is that “special” people (be they human or machine) can transcend the limitations of the natural world and transform themselves into super heroes with super powers by simply identifying as “super” and getting a little help from substances (e.g. spider venom) and/or already-initiated mentors.
We adults forget how blurred the line between fantasy and reality can be in the minds of children (and some adults who never grew up). My Mom once told me a true story about her brother Walter whose favorite TV show was Superman. One day he put on a home-made cape, climbed atop the family car and tried to fly across the back yard, breaking his arm in the process.
That was back in the early 1950s when actual reality was universally culturally affirmed. Think how easy it is for kids today to embrace delusions about their identity and purpose when the ruling class has literally gone insane on matters of sexuality and human relations. How many of these adults’ own tendency toward delusion became pathological in part from consuming the same pop-culture propaganda and programming that enslaved their kids?
The solution is for conservatives to change our strategy from reactive to pro-active. We do have a long-forgotten pro-active vision called the Shining City on a Hill. It is the vision of the Founders for an ever-strengthening and expanding Constitutional Republic with a cultural melting pot capable of transforming and conforming all other cultures to the goodness and blessing of Biblical truth. That was our “manifest destiny” which got sidetracked when we shrank back from Marxist aggression and became accommodationist. We should and must repent of that passivity and get back to fighting for righteousness!
To translate this call to action into comic book metaphors and the language of Generation Trans, I now “choose to identify” as a super robot, Maximus Transphobicon, and everyone must now affirm my value as an insurrectionist against Marxism and Transgenderism and follow my example.
But seriously, until the Lord returns it IS our job to “save the world” from Satanic oppression. Let’s reclaim the true supernatural powers He has given us, and get back in that fight.
