The esoteric message of Hollywood


The author of the popular title Esoteric Hollywood: Sex, Cults and Symbols in Film Jay Dyer explains the links between conspiracy, mass culture and geopolitics.

The reason why I got an offer to write my book “Esoteric Hollywood” is based on the popularity of my film reviews. I’m analyzing popular films and the themes that we see in pop culture. Sometimes it relates to real world espionage or to occultism, and sometimes it relates to shadowing and predicting future events, especially so-called terrorism events. I tie all these fields together - geopolitics, conspiracy, history, literature, and espionage - and try to look at the bridge between fiction and reality. I consider the term “conspiracy" in a general way. I believe that geopolitics is a conspiracy.

There is a strong connection between American film industry and intelligence. They are the flip-sides of the same coin. If we go back to the history of the invention of the camera – it was used for military propaganda from the beginning. Hollywood exists as a means of propaganda to give us new myths. Just like the ancient Greeks gave us the mythology of how we suppose to understand the world.  Hollywood is the new mythmaker. It is strongly important for the government to be involved in crafting messages of pop culture. The CIA is largely involved, not just in foreign entanglements and drug trafficking, but also in culture creation. That’s the primary aspect of their role, much of which is very toxic.

It’s not easy to perfectly predict something from a movie. However, you can get a general idea of what the establishment wants to promote. Far more people will watch James Bond than read something historical or geopolitical. People like watching fiction films. It’s much more important for the establishment to craft the messages through those means to a mass audience. When you watch films about terrorism, you can see where the establishment projects blame. The Western establishment is largely behind global terrorism. They want terrorism and war, and we can see it from propaganda and fiction. Witchcraft, Satanism, occultism, Darwinism, transgenderism, the idea that humans were created by aliens – these are the main themes in Hollywood today.
