Fakenews vs The Fifth Estate or Why Trump Won but lost Celebrities

January 4, 2017

The reason Trump can’t get any of the celebrities to perform is because they’re afraid they’ll lose their place in the “Star”system because Trump defeated the machine. In the short term, the establishment simply miscalculated because Clinton was claiming such a lopsided victory… However, it’s obvious they (those of the Fourth Estate), will not make this mistake again.

The thing is that we have had in place, at least since the 1920’s, what has become known as the star system.

The star system was the method of creating, promoting and exploiting stars in Hollywood films. Movie studios would select promising young actors and glamorise and create personas for them, often inventing new names and even new backgrounds. Examples of stars who went through the star system include Cary Grant (born Archie Leach), Joan Crawford (born Lucille Fay LeSueur), and Rock Hudson (born Roy Harold Scherer, Jr.)

The star system put an emphasis on the image rather than the acting, although discreet acting, voice, and dancing lessons were a common part of the regimen. Women were expected to behave like ladies, and were never to leave the house without makeup and stylish clothes. Men were expected to be seen in public as gentlemen. Morality clauses were a common part of actors’ studio contracts.

Now to be clear this system is fully supported by the Fourth Estate of what maybe termed the agenda of the establishment. That’s why you see certain whistleblowers, who remain outside the establishment but have had their fill under suppression and even sentence of death.

For those readers who are not fully aware of what WikiLeaks really is, here is a good definition from a supporter:
“WikiLeaks is an international, online, non-profit organisation which publishes information submitted by courageous whistleblowers, people with conscience. Most whistleblowers prefer to remain anonymous for fear of reprisals. Google what happened to Bradley Manning and Edward Snowden. They are being hounded, hunted, criminalised, ostracized, ex-communicated by the very top people whose secret criminal deals and activities they have exposed.” The final sentence of that quote explains why tremendous courage is necessary to be a whistle-blower and why most of us are too frightened to speak out when witnessing injustice. The last phrase summarizes what is a major component of what constitutes “a profoundly sick society”.

In the early 70s the “Star system” under went some radical changes and the power center changed hands from the studio system to the agencies (such as WMA) and talent was sold as a package. These actors still impact and control society so that these social measures as still taken into account by the powers that be… The Fourth Estate.

Oscar Wilde wrote:

In old days men had the rack. Now they have the Press. That is an improvement certainly. But still it is very bad, and wrong, and demoralizing. Somebody — was it Burke? — called journalism the fourth estate. That was true at the time no doubt. But at the present moment it is the only estate. It has eaten up the other three. The Lords Temporal say nothing, the Lords Spiritual have nothing to say, and the House of Commons has nothing to say and says it. We are dominated by Journalism.[11]

This “Fourth Estate” continues to gain so much power as to be thought of as its own separate branch of government and has never known defeat until… Donald Trump. Trump has created for himself a niche in the Fifth element. The Fifth element is quickly transforming culture into something different and undergoing this transformation at an amazing pace. The Fifth element is Twitter, blogs, Google and talk radio.

The problem is the success of Trump’s nomination also heralds the end of an era and can never be forgiven. They will use every tool at their disposal, which is considerable, they still have control over the establishment and should not be underestimated.

@realDonaldTrump It’s Not the hacking that’s really this committee’s agenda but rather it’s a conspiracy to sink Trump’s ship of state before he takes the oath of office. Political theater pure n simple.
