Charile Sheen

Charlie Sheen was fired from his popular sitcom on CBS. The reaction to this incident is interesting.

Twenty years ago, a fired celebrity would be SOL. Without the mainstream media gatekeepers, a celebrity cannot connect with fans.

Now, the Internet changes things. Charlie Sheen can present his point of view uncensored, via the Internet. He isn't dependent on the mainstream media gatekeepers.

Charlie Sheen has a valid complaint. He says "I was fired for reasons unrelated to job performance. My sitcom had great ratings. Therefore, I was doing a great job." Anybody who was ever unfairly fired, can relate to Charlie Sheen's circumstances.

If you're a celebrity, you're a slave. You're a high-paid high-status slave. If a slave gets unruly, an example must be made. "Don't disrespect your boss. Don't disrespect the rules." is more important than actual performance.

A disgraced celebrity can turn to the Internet. They can still make a decent salary. It is possible, but harder, to build up a reputation self-publishing on the Internet.

There is an interesting conspiracy theory, regarding Charlie Sheen. Allegedly, Charlie Sheen supports the "9/11 Truth Movement", and he was fired for that reason. Also, drugs and prostitutes are State-forbidden conduct.

When Charlie Sheen is publicly discussed on the news, that takes away from more important issues. It's a distraction. People are talking about Charlie Sheen rather than "WTF? The economy sucks!"

Even if Charlie Sheen never gets another mainstream media job, he'll earn a decent living from live performances and self-publishing on the Internet. That's a big difference now compared to 20 years ago.

I don' trust Charlie Sheen. I think he's working with the criminals.

Did you notice that he did not get arrested? He is an actor. This was a stunt.

I thought it was a well done case of reality acting. The actor convinces people that he is not acting. He convinces them that this is his real life and it is not an act. In a way this would be the ultimate performance challenge for an actor, to make the audience believe it is real.

The police searched his house for hours and did not find any drugs. This is the telling piece of evidence that this was all an act. Drug addicts always have their drugs close by.

He lost his employment? I will bet that he is more well known now and he will receive better offers in the future due to this stunt.

His performance should receive some kind of award: Tiger blood, Winning.
It is a real life movie.

My other thought was that someone paid him a shitload of money to distract the attention of the American public from the dire things happening in the world right now.

either way it was a brilliant piece of work on the part of Charlie Sheen.

"be as shocking as possible" seems to be acceptable now.

That is an interesting point.

Recreational drugs are illegal. Many celebrities openly use drugs. That's contradictory propaganda.

The world has much surplus production. With cheap energy, food is cheap. Only a fraction of the world's population need to do real, productive work.

So what is everybody else to do?

Policing drugs provides employment for lots of government workers - police, lawyers, judges, court employees, prison companies, guards...

In the UK drug dealers are let straight back onto the street. Why? So lawyers can have more work in a few weeks when the same drug dealer is brought in again. Why lock a source of income up for years? Let them out to offend again.

It is also something for the government to do to make it look useful.

Drugs bring in lots of cash liquidity which the banks can launder. Banks like cash infusions. With the fractional reserve system banks can multiple dirty money up 10 - 30 fold.

May-be, he is demonized because he is a truther. May-be, he is there to create an image of a truther, according to the government specifications.

You know, always "winning"?
