My recent post on 2001: A Space Odyssey got me back riding one of my OCD hobbyhorses. And that's the persistent claims that Stanley Kubrick filmed and photographed the Apollo missions. I think that's a slander against a great artist's memory.
Why? Because the Apollo crap is so obviously cheap, flimsy and slapdash that a consummate perfectionist like Kubrick would never have signed off on it.
Compare the obvious soundstage void that we see in the Apollo astronaughts floating in with Kubrick's breathtaking lunar vistas. It's just absurd.
I honestly believe that most sensible people realize it was all a sham but are either too afraid or embarrassed to say so out loud. There are also folks who can't bring themselves to admit they were fooled, because that invites the question, "what else was I deceived by?"
There's no shame in being deceived when dealing with a multibillion dollar enterprise stocked with the very best deceivers money can buy. The same goes for Apollo as it does for any other hoax or psyop.
The shame only comes when the truth is pointed out time and again and you continue to buy into weaponized lies concocted by people who hate you and literally want you dead.
With all that in mind, let that beautiful meme footage roll...
IN DEFIANCE OF LOGIC
Remember this whole operation was concocted by Nixon and his cronies - along with literal Nazis and Scottish Rite Freemasons - in order to boost patriotism, and more importantly, to take attention away from the ongoing genocide in Vietnam and Indochina in general.
Let it go. Take my word as a former longtime Apollo-gist, you'll feel a lot better when you do.
