The Occult Symbolism of Movie “Metropolis” and its Importance in Pop Culture

Oct 19th, 2010 | Category: Movies and TV, Music Business | 370 comments


Fritz Lang’s 1927 movie “Metropolis” is one of those timeless classics that withstand the test of time. Rather than becoming forgotten and obsolete, “Metropolis” is increasingly relevant as many of its predictions are becoming reality. We will look at the  underlying occult message of the film and the usage of its imagery in the acts of  pop stars such as Lady Gaga, Madonna, Beyonce, Kylie Minogue and others.

Metropolis is a silent science-fiction movie released in 1927 by Fritz Lang, a master of German Expressionism. Set in a futuristic dystopia divided into two distinct and separate classes—the thinkers and the workers—Metropolis describes the struggles between the two opposite entities. Knowing that it was produced in 1927, viewing this movie today is quite an experience as many “sci-fi” aspects of the plot are eerily close to reality. Metropolis describes a society where the “New World Order” has already taken been implemented and a select elite live in luxury while a dehumanized mass work and live in a highly monitored hell.

As we have seen in previous articles on The Vigilant Citizen, Metropolis is excessively echoed in popular culture, especially in the music business. Whether it be in music videos or photo shoots, pop stars are often portrayed as the character Maria, an android programmed to corrupt the morals of the workers and to incite a revolt, giving the elite an excuse to use violence repression. Are pop stars used by the elite in the same matter, to corrode the morals of the masses?

Movie Analysis

The Workers

The workers at shift change.

The movie opens by showing the workers and their city, situated deep below the earth’s surface. They are shown dressed alike, walking in sync, holding their heads down in submission, resignation and desperation. Throughout the movie, the human cattle is depicted as being physically and mentally exhausted, highly impressionable and, let’s say it, all-around dumb. Like a flock of sheep, the workers move in crowds, are very impressionable and can easily be deceived. This description of the masses corroborates those of Walter Lippmann, an American thinker who, five years earlier in Public Opinion, compared the general public to a “bewildered herd” that is not qualified to manage its own destiny. Joseph Goebbels, the head of propaganda of the Nazi regime, was also in accord with the movie’s conception of the general public. Hitler famously said “How fortunate for leaders that men do not think”.

The workers labor in a monstrous machine, a hellish industrial complex where they must accomplish repetitive and dehumanizing tasks. At one point, the machine is compared to Moloch, the ancient Semitic deity honored by human sacrifices.

In one of his visions, Fredersen sees the Machine turning into Moloch. The workers are fed to the beast as human sacrifices.
Moloch the God Baal, the Bull of the Sun, was widely worshipped in the ancient Near East and wherever Carthaginian culture extended. Baal Moloch was conceived under the form of a calf or an ox or depicted as a man with the head of a bull. The sacrifices went through the “belly of the beast”.

The tasks assumed by the workers are purely mechanical, needing absolutely no brain power, making them nothing more than an extension of the machine.

The workers accomplish repetitive, mind-numbing tasks, stripping them of their humanity.

The Thinkers

The gleaming city of the Thinkers

If the workers live in a hellish underground dystopia, the thinkers conversely evolve in a gleaming utopia, a magnificent testimony of human achievement. This shiny city could not, however, be sustained without the existence of the Machine (Moloch) and its herds of workers. On the other hand, the Machine would not exist without the need to sustain a city. We find here a dualistic relation where two opposite entities exist in mutual dependence, a concept that has deep occult resonance.

In a thinly veiled reference to the hermetic axiom “As Above, So Below”, the movie describes the mirroring yet opposite environments in which in the thinkers and the workers live in.

The hermetic Seal of Salomon visually depicts the concept of “As above, So below” while representing opposites energies mirroring each other to achieve perfect balance. Fritz Lang’s world perfectly recreates this concept.

Joh Fredersen, the Demi-God

The city was founded, built and is run by the autocratic Joh Fredersen. As the creator and only ruler of Metropolis, Fredersen is likened to the Gnostic demiurge, a demi-god who is creator and ruler of the material world.

Joh Federsen, plotting his next move. He is holding a compass, reminding viewers of his role as the “great architect” of Metropolis.
William Blake’s representation of the gnostic demiurge, creator and ruler of the imperfect lower plane, where sin and suffering prevails. The compass borrows from Masonic symbolism for God as the “Great Architect of the Universe”.

Joh’s son, named Freder, who, like all sons of managers, was enjoying a life of luxury, discovers the harsh reality of the workers of down under. Wanting to experience the worker’s reality first-hand, Freder descends to the lower level and trades places with a worker. Freder therefore becomes a Christ-like figure, a savior who descends from above. He also becomes enamoured with Maria, a saintly young women from the proletariat.

Maria

Maria, preaching to the workers.

Maria is a charismatic woman that is highly admired by her fellow workers. Understanding their suffering and despair, and knowing that a revolt is brewing, Maria preaches peace and patience, prophesying the coming of a “mediator”, who would become the “heart between the head (the thinkers) and the hand (the workers)

At one point, Maria tells the story of the tower of Babel, upon which would be written:

“Great is the world and its Creator! And great is Man!”

This statement has a deep resonance in Mystery Schools as it is taught that men have the potential to become gods through enlightenment. Throughout the ages, monuments and architecture were used to communicate the principles of the Mysteries and to celebrate the greatness of the human mind. Partially for those reasons, there are numerous links between Freemasonry and the Tower of Babel.

“As regards to Masonry, Babel of course represented a Masonic enterprise and early expositors reaped full benefit from the facts. They remembered that the people, who were of ‘one language and one speech’ journeyed from the East to the West, like those who have been tried and proved as Master Masons. When they reached an abiding place in the land Shinar, it is affirmed that they dwelt therein as Noachide, being the first characteristic name of Masons. It was here that they built their high tower of confusion. Out of evil comes good, however, and the confusion of tongues gave rise to ‘the ancient practice of Masons conversing without the use of speech.’”
-Arthur Edward Waite, A New Encyclopedia of Freemasonry and of Cognate Instituted Mysteries: Their Rites, Literature and History, Volume I

“In several early Masonic manuscripts – for example, the Harleian, Sloane, Lansdowne, and Edinburgh-Kilwinning – it is stated that the craft of initiated builders existed before the Deluge, and that its members were employed in the building of the Tower of Babel.”
- Manly P. Hall, The Secret Teachings of All Ages

“… at the making of the Tower of Babel there was Masonry first much esteemed of, and Nimrod was a Mason himself and loved well Masons.”
- John T Lawrence, The Perfect Ashlar

However, says Maria, “one man’s hymns of praise became the other man’s curse”. In other words, the monument praising the greatness of the human spirit was built with the blood and sweat of workers who knew nothing of the Thinker’s grand vision. And, in the film, the same thing is happening all over again. The name of the demi-god Joh Fredersen’s headquarters? Of course … The New Tower of Babel.

Joh Ferdersen’s headquarters named the New Tower of Babel.

Rotwang

Rotwang with his trademark mechanical right hand, which replaces the one he lost during one of his experiments. Is this a symbol signifying that the inventor embraces the “left-handed path”?

Upon learning that the workers are planning an uprising, Joh Federsen seeks the advice of Rotwang, an inventor and mad scientist. Although his work utilizes the latest of technologies, many clues within the movie indicate that he also taps into ancient occult knowledge to create his inventions. He is said to live in “a small house overlooked by the centuries,” symbolically meaning that the scientist’s arcana descended from ancient occult traditions; the basement of his house has a secret trap door leading to 2,000 year-old catacombs, further alluding to the ancient and mysterious sources of Rotwang. Furthermore, the front door of his house bears a pentagram, which refers to the Pythagoreans, occultism and Freemasonry.

A pentagram on Rotwang’s door. Disciples of Pythagoras affixed a pentagram on their door as a secret sign of mutual recognition. The sign and its meaning could remain secret despite that public display because only those initiated into the mysteries of Pythagoras’ geometry were able to draw it correctly and to appreciate its deep significance as a symbol for and gateway to those mysteries.

If we were to do real-life comparisons, Rotwang is to Joh Fredersen what John Dee was to Queen Elizabeth I: an esteemed advisor immersed in the worlds of science, magic, astrology and Hermetic philosophy. If Fredersen represents our world’s rulers, Rotwang is the occult pendant of decision-making, the mystical entity that is hidden from the public but always historically present.

The inventor proudly presents to Fredersen his latest invention, the Machine-Man, which he considers to be the “Man of the Future”. The android has the faculty of taking the form of any person and, says Rotwang, “no one will be able to tell a Machine Man from a mortal!”. The transhumanist dream was already present back in the early 1920s.

Fredersen then tells Rotwang to give the Machine-Man the likeness of Maria in order to use her credibility and charisma to spread corruption among the workers.

Maria laying down while Rotwang gives her likeness to the android. Notice the inverted pentagram right above the Machine-Man’s head. If the upright pentagram represents healing, mathematical perfection and the five elements, the inverted pentagram stands for the corruption of those principles and black magic.

So what do today’s pop stars have in common with this android, programmed by the rulers, with a mix of science and occultism? Well … everything.

Beyonce
Kylie Minogue
Lady Gaga in Paparazzi video
Lady Gaga in Dave Lachapelle photo shoot that is heavily inspired by Metropolis.
Freddie Mercury from Queen with his face instead of Maria’s in Radio Gaga. Lady Gaga’s name was inspired by this song and video, which contains a lot of footage from Metropolis.
Janelle Monae
Metropolis themes are also very prevalent in fashion

Back to the movie. The android completed, Rotwang tells it:

“I want you to visit those in the depths, in order to destroy the work of the woman in whose image you were created!”

Robot-maria responds:

One eye closed with devilish grin. You probably know the importance of the single eye from previous articles and the ridiculous amount of pop artists who flash it.

The Maria android is then sent to Yoshiwara, a man’s club, where she performs erotic dances. In one of her acts, she is portrayed as Babylon, the Great Harlot from the Apocalypse.

Playing the role of the Great Harlot Babylon of the Book of Revelation. “And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, having a golden cup in her hand”. She is held up by the seven deadly sins.

Do this scene remind you of a classic music video?

Madonna – Material Girl. How many realized that she was playing the role of Babylon here?

The programmed Maria performs mesmerizing dances in front of an avid public, causing men to fight, to lust, to be jealous and to commit the rest of the deadly sins. When she’s with her fellow workers,  Maria acts as an “agent-provocateur”, inciting the working men to riot and giving Joh Fredersen reason to use force against them. She is basically acting against the best interest of the public and for the interest of the elite.

With the help of their foreman (because they can’t really think for themselves), the workers ultimately realize that they have been mislead by the android. Believing that she’s a witch, they find robot-Maria and burn her at the stake.

A bunch of things happen after that, but I won’t spoil the ending for you (though can you really be mad at someone for spoiling the ending of a 83-year old movie?). The movie finishes with this caption:

This “moral of the story” is basically a message to the elite, a tip to keep the masses in check: in order to keep the oppressed content, you must capture their heart. That is what the media accomplish.

Which is kind of reminiscent of this music video ending:

Madonna’s Express Yourself video heavily borrowed its imagery from Metropolis. In turn, Christina Aguilera’s Not Myself Tonight, heavily borrowed from Express Yourself.

The Moral of the Story

The moral of the story of Metropolis is not “let’s abolish all inequities and rebuild a world where everyone is equal” and it is certainly not “let’s be democratic and vote for who we want as a ruler.” It is more “let’s send the workers back to the depths where they belong, but with the addition of a mediator, who will be the link between the workers and the thinkers”. So, when all is said and done, the movie is intrinsically “elitist,” as it still calls for the existence of an elite group of people holding most of the resources and managing a working class. In the end, the workers – and Freder – were duped, believing that their conditions would change. In fact, the status-quo remained and Joh even got his naive son to give the elite a friendly image while reporting everything happening in the depths, resulting in tighter surveillance and control.

Who is the Freder of today’s working class? The media. Media is the mediator. That is its function.

Fredersen, the link between “the hand and the head”, the Workers and the Thinkers. This role is played today by the media.

Mass media manipulate the masses’ thoughts and feelings on a daily basis, tricking them into loving their oppression. Popular culture is the entertainment branch of mass media and pop music is the fun way to communicate the elite’s message to the youth. References to Metropolis in pop music are almost winks to those in the know, the initiates, as if to say “this star is working for us”. So go ahead and be an ignorant, degenerate and materialistic person, like in the videos … that’s what they want you to be.

Analogies Between Metropolis and Today’s Pop Culture

But why Metropolis? Why has it become the code for “Illuminati star”? If you’ve read other articles on this site, you’ve probably realized that the movie touches upon all of the themes of today’s “Illuminati agenda”: transhumanism, mind control, dark occultism, degradation of morals, police state, all-seeing government. Metropolis is basically a blueprint for population control. Like Maria, today’s pop stars are recruited from the working class and literally programmed and reinvented to become the hidden ruler’s spokespersons. Notice how many pop stars have wild alter-egos, with a different name and personality. Part of the stars’ role is to promote the elite’s agenda through music and videos, making it sexy and attractive.

 

In Conclusion

Metropolis is a definitely a movie “by the elite, for the elite”. It tackles the concerns of those managing the world and presents a solution that does not disturb the status-quo. The movie is also permeated with Masonic symbolism and contains many symbols referring to ancient Mysteries which were meant to be decoded by proper initiates. In other words, the movie was primarily aimed at the ruling class.

So why do singers love it so much? Well they probably don’t love it as much as those behinds the scenes, the directors and image-makers, those who have power in the music business. They decide what the stars do and stand for. And today’s popular culture is elitist, permeated with Illuminati symbolism and promotes moral degradation and the debasement of traditional values. Our pop stars channel Maria, the programmed android, through their acts and accomplish the same functions. Why else would they dress like her? If artists always embodied absolute freedom and creativity, why do singers play the role of a mind-controlled android? Because that’s what they are.

Metropolis is indeed a great movie. So great that it is only becoming relevant 80 years after its release. But if the elite have it their way, it will be even more relevant in the years to come.

    Great article VC.

  4. Kevin Acosta says:

    Excellent article! I live in Colombia and it's such a great work what I can see here; people in my country don't have this kind of information and are just being bombarded by all the mass media thing! It's great to know that I can find this type of information here. VC, I've been reading all of your articles… Congratulations, they're such great analysis!! I hope to see some new articles about 2010 VMAs and a deeper interpretation of Kanye West's "Runaway".

    • Me from Colombia says:

      Hey Kevin, fellow colombian! Can you see how they are working us? RCN and Caracol with their shameless horrible novelas about mafia and whores and brainwashing people into liking iluminati artists like Shakira and Juanes! Shakira is our Maria she thinks she is independent but she is mind controlled! Check out "Shakira: Freedom is a lie" on Pseudo-occult media, you can google that!

      What really sucks is if you say this things in Colombia they think you are crazy!

      • Ale says:

        It's awesome to find other spanish speakers here!

        It'd be awesome if eventually someone could take the time to translate these articles to spanish, and maybe write a few more regarding Juanes, Shakira, Belinda, etc.

        And I'm totally with you on that one: It sucks you can't talk to people about this, they think you're crazy and digging too deep.

      • Me from Colombia says:

        Ale, I have been thinking about starting a blog about symbolism in russian and latin music videos, the lives of saints, the Catholic Church, the Bible… but it would take a lot of time for me to write those blog entries and I don't have a lot of free time.

        There is one blog called "El proyecto Matriz" http://elproyectomatriz.wordpress.com/
        But what I don't like about this blog it's that they support the communist in Latin America as if they didn't know they are just the Hegelian antithesis, part of the game created by Rothschild after founding the work of satanist Karl Marx.

        And their like of Hugo Chávez is vomitrocious because that has keep the oil money for him and his circle, there are no drugs and/or appliances in venezuelan hospitals, people are fighting for food, he supports guerrillas all over the continent. And Kirchner… God bless his soul, but he stole like 15 million dollars only on his wife's government and who knows if it's a lot more because they always manage to hide it.

        Another iluminati artists to add to the list: Thalía. She has been a puppet for them for like years and her husband Tommy Mottola is into cults.

      • KA says:

        Hey guys I really like your ideas! How can we make some contact? give me your e-mail or send me one to kevinacosta0123@yahoo.es ! we can make some great things here, I think the peopel need that!

    • jose says:

      There are no public libraries in Colombia? yankies will think your countrie is only jungle…

  5. Orwellian says:

    Awesome as usual! Thanks VC! Have not seen the movie, but reading this reminds me a lot of 1984 by George Orwell

    Which also seems to become more relevent with each passing year.

    • Maria says:

      Dear Orwellian,

      I am rather of the opinion, that Aldous Huxleys "Brave new World" describes the way our society is going to take. They (elite) are not planning to make the masses suffer by restricions, instead the elite is going to show the real way to happiness.

      Have a try, Mr. Huxley really saw things coming.

      • Lotus says:

        Aldous Huxley was a genius who saw the way that society was going and wrote a prophetic book. It was never intended to be fiction simply because it already wasn't fictional at the time, and even more so now. I wish I could sit down and have a cup of tea with the guy.

        Anyways, great article! I feel like I need to watch this movie now.

        I think what saddens me the most is the fact that we have the technology, the means, to solve all of the world's problems… But instead humans are using these means for perverted reasons.

        To quote a crazy loon whom I love:

        "It's clearly a crisis of two things: of consciousness and conditioning… We have the technological power, the engineering skills to save our planet, to cure disease, to feed the hungry, to end war; But we lack the intellectual vision, the ability to change our minds. We must de-condition ourselves from 10,000 years of bad behavior. And, it's not easy. ”

        —Terence McKenna

      • AnonymousCoward says:

        Huxley came from a lineage of intellectual elitists, and heralded their ideology and coming world system. He, like Bertrand Russell, talked about the natural right of the few and the powerful to exert their will upon the many and the weak.

    • Damian says:

      I guess that Maria is right, the world we live in looks more like "Brave New World" than like "1984".

      Instead of restrictions we get non stop distractions.

      Mindless Entertainment, alcohol, drugs, consumerism, sexual promiscuity are promoted to make us happy slaves that simply can not focus on real important issues anymore.

      • There will always be a disparity between the haves and the have-nots in this world just as there will always be The Thinkers and The Workers who are mutually dependent on each other for their survival. There is no escaping it. Men like Huxley and Wells saw this fact and understood it. As we continue to progress and evolve socially and technologically there is no escaping this if we are to continue to survive as a species. The only way out, as The Unabomber correctly surmised in his manifesto, is ultimately to destroy industrial society and return to a primitive stone age existence, taking out 80% of the current world population who would never survive such a transition. It is ironic that this is exactly what many conspiracy theorists claim the so-called elites want to do! But as Wells says in "Things to Come" we must make a choice…"All the Universe or Nothing". Which shall it be?

  6. Olivia Addo says:

    Wow, this is a great article! I always wonder, do these artists have no shame? Is it something they are comfortable having their children dabble in? If the answer is no, then maybe they shouldn't be, either. But then again, I guess they are not that confident in their talent because they are very talented, then why would they need to bow down to satan himself and use his platform to sell themselves?

    • kittypaw says:

      Of course they are talented (most of them). Lucifer can't give them talent, as talent comes from God. Lucifer gives them the success, the stardom, the number one hits, the dosh, and that is what they are craving for. They use their talent for bad.

      • InChristwelive says:

        I agree, he is the master of deception. They don't call him the prince of this world for nothing. To make it in his "world", you have to bow down to him….he tempted Out Lord Jesus the same wa and He saw right through it.. Thank God we in Christ have freedom. We are not bound by the things of this world. Our success is guaranteed in Christ.

      • john p says:

        Man, replace one identity with another. Republicans vs. democrats, Elite vs proletariat, Christians vs. everyone else, and all sides belive they are the God's chosen. The elite, Iluminaty, etc. believe that too. If youthink you are better because you belong to a special group, your are just as disconected as they are my friend. Good like with your escapism in Christ, eventually you will have to integrate this world too, you know, but of course not by becoming of it.

      • Maglor says:

        Check if you're wrong please… When a person is gifted, that gift comes from God. Talent doesn't come from God. I'll give an example: A person who is an autodidact in Music, is a person who knows how to play music and doesn't need to read sheetmusic at all… on the other hand the talented ones need to learn and to practice something they weren't born with, because, put simply, they enjoy it that much. Am I wrong?

      • Jack Spade says:

        Yes

  7. Emery says:

    You are amazing VC . Truly amazing . Keep on with your mind blowing work , You are one of the few that speaks the truth nowdays . We need more people like you that exposes the other side of the coin .

    • skopp888 says:

      Be careful though not to make VC your "god", because that's just as bad as worshipping pop idols and false gods. VC is just a guide… scrap that, an opinion. Just one opinion of mnay – not the be all and end all of verdicts.

      • It’s a great guide, but you have to follow your line of thought.
        For example, I’d disagree the media is the only entity who serves as the “heart” between the head and the hand.
        Religion itself is much more of a way to control the masses than the media is.
        Notice the son [Jesus, Freder] of the great architect [God, Joh] came to a saintly young women from the proletariat [Maria, Maria].
        (sorry for the double post, I needed to edit this)

        (Brazilian readers of the Vigilant Citizen, feel free to contact me)

      • Me from Colombia says:

        They want the masses to be atheistic, because they want to keep all mystical knowledge to themselves. If you read a bit more you'll see that the Iluminati know that Jesus existed and they have been screwing every Jesus related investigation, so people does not believe in him. They hid the Holy Grial in Germany, if you get close you'll get wacked. They made scientists take a carbono 14 test of a patch in the Shroud so they could make everyone believe that it was from the Middle Age, however, only the cotton patches were from the middle age, the rest of it is made of linen from the I century. There is no ink on it, it's blood, AB type jewish blood.

        Some iluminati even think they are Jesus' breed. However, he never had children.

      • XYZ says:

        However, Gizas didnt exist.

      • Me from Colombia says:

        Roberto Civile, you are brazilian so I know where this is coming from.

        For those who don't know, Brazil was once the biggest Catholic country in the world. But people started to want to grab a dime from those not crazy about their faith, so hundreds of sects emerged, people made millions of dollars using hypnosis and lightning to change people's brains. So they have weird experiences and behaviour and they think it's the Holy Spirit… but it's them being manipulated by mind control.

        The fake christians have done wonders in Brazil, converting street bad people into believers, but they are making bussiness and that's the point of their whole work.

        I think it's stupid if you are told not to sin, you are told not to follow Maria the android. I think you are seeing religion from the pseudo-scientific place they want us to see it, so we become detached from it.

        In case you don't know, Jesus said "..I tell you the truth, it is hard for a rich man to enter the kingdom of heaven. Again I tell you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God"

        So he's basically condemning those who live a luxurious life whereas the rest of the population is living in poverty. People who followed Christ gave back everything they owned to the poor. So I think your point it's not serious because religion isn't about becoming rich, except for some cults in your country that claim riches are holy… but it's because they own a lot and they don't want to give it away.

      • Christine says:

        I think we need to re-evaluate this trope of "religion is the opium of the masses," said by a guy who was basically a hater. Objectively speaking, religion hasn't controlled shit. Religion spreads like a weed, especially under duress, always spawns more thought, more sects or denominations, more interpretations, and has never guaranteed predictable behavior among anyone. Yet the media makes it's millions using predictability, and how can they do that? Could it be that they appeal to the base nature of humanity, a nature that through psudo-spirituality people are taught to ignore or believe doesn't exist? There is no evil, only energy, the potential to be good or bad? Please. They know that if they can scare you, you'll run to whoever has a solution i.e pay money to fund their empire. Religion has its pitfalls but only because there is a standard do we know when such a breach occurs. This mass system has no standard, except for whatever can ruin a human soul.

  8. Josh says:

    Thanks Vigilant, for the new and insightful article! Glad to know you're okay. It's good that you can simultaneously provide your readers with larger articles such as this one and the smaller mini-articles about illuminatist, satanic, transhumanist, and occult ideas that you catch on to in everyday life and discovery. Thanks again!

  9. CalAsian says:

    Unfortunately the masses have lost all ability to think.

    I am probably going to side with the Thinkers.

    How about Atlas Shrugged?

    • Me from Colombia says:

      You don't choose to "side" with anyone. The thinkers choose their own members. And they are all fallen from grace so their riches won't buy them anything after they die.

    • Miss P says:

      Now that is a book that says it all-I started it late last year and could not put it down.At one point I was feeling for the "herione" Dagny" but I realised more and more that it was extremely relevant to present Day.

      They do say Man decided he was God-in the Industrial age.

    Amazing article (as usual). You are a kick ass writer/researcher. Keep it up, always look forward to your posts.

  11. Hollyfasho says:

    Great article VC! I've learned so much from your articles alone! Cant thank you more for the great information….

  12. coolpeeps says:

    VC it's good to see you're back into the grassroots. One of your best articles in a while. I've also had the pleasure of viewing the movie "Metropolis" unbelievable how relevant it is today. Anyone who has Netfix should be able to do a search and find it. Not sure when and how all this is going to transpire on earth, but I believe that my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ will save those who believe in him. Honestly don't know how much more a thinking knowledge seeker can do about all this corruption other than to spread the knowledge, even when people think you're crazy!

  13. Jason says:

    Nice work VC!

    Interesting as usual.

    Still want to make the point to your audience that we are free people and we each should be accountable for our own actions.

    We all need to turn this crap off and find our passions.

    We can make the world better through our own actions and should not live in fear. These topics can make us mad and paranoid. I say be the change you want to see in the world and remember nothing is black and white. Just trying to keep it real for anyone that gets carried away with conspiracy theories as I had to find some peace for myself after getting to far down the rabbit hole. Find your gratitude and you will improve your attitude.

      Exactly, Illuminati only possess the power we the masses give them. If the world opened their eyes and took control of their own destinies it would be a better place. CONFUSION is the tool the media uses to keep everyone out of knowing. Knowledge really is power. Religion, Politics, Pop Music all designed to confuse us as a whole. Each one teach one, the so called elite are heartless cowards. Turn the pyramid upside down!!!!

      They already remade it as an animated film… I just watched it on Starz a few weeks ago… I also the original years back, way before they found and added the missing parts that were just found.

  16. RR says:

    Metropolis can only be understood by knowing the co-author Countess Thea Gabriele von Harbou (December 27, 1888 – July 1, 1954) was a German actress and author of Prussian aristocratic origin. She was born in Tauperlitz in the Kingdom of Bavaria.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thea_von_Harbou

    She was highly involved with the Nazis and as to Lang:

    Fritz Lang's mother, although religiously a convert to Catholicism, was of Jewish extraction. By Jewish traditions the mother determines whether a person is Jewish by the Mitochondrial DNA in women. Thus Lang was Jewish yet this highly influenced Adolf Rothschild Hitler, indeed.

    Also one MUST read some books by Siegfried Kracauer to understand the depth of German & Mass Media and the Ministry of Propaganda of the Third Reich and here are links:

    http://www.jahsonic.com/SiegfriedKracauer.html

    Siegfried Kracauer: Film, Capitalism and the Art of Mass Audience Distraction

    And this book is the most revealing:

    From Caligari to Hitler – A psychological history of german film – Siegfried Kracauer

    You can download it here for free, a MUST READ for ALL Serious Researchers:

    http://www.4shared.com/document/twbvni7b/From_Cal

    You can download Thea von Harbou's actual "Metropolis" here and choose the format:

    http://manybooks.net/titles/harboutother05metropo

    Kracauer divides the old German films into three sections:

    1st group that testify of a "state of paralysis" existence in humanity.

    2nd group sheds light on the tendencies and notions that are paralyzed.

    3rd group reveals the inner workings of the paralyzed 'collective soul.'

    Note that Kracauer placed Metroplis in the 2nd group of films which consists of two parts; the "Street Films" dealing with the themes of the streets, decadence, prostitution; and the "Youth Films" featuring children or adolescents. BOTH categories deal the theme of REBELLION against the established Authority, while the "Youth Films" paradoxically, 'affirm fixation to authoritarian behavior precisely by stressing rebellion against it.'

    This is Hegelian Dialectic in essence.

    Metropolis ends with Freder the "Heart" character seeming to have converted his father the Master of Metropolis to his cause for the People, but REALLY, the Industrialist has outwitted his son. The concession he makes amounts to a policy of appeasement that not only prevents the Workers from winning their cause, but enables him to tighten his grip on them. By appearing to yield to Freder his son, the Industrialist achieve intimate contact with the Workers, and it thus in position to influence their minds. Freder is the "Heart" and he allows the Heart to speak— a Heart accessible to his insinuations/manipulations/deceptions.

    And if You look at Freder's suggestion to his father at end, the Master of Metropolis shakes hands in the movie with the Foreman of the Workers, You see a Masonic Handshake… ahhh… does this make sense now ???

    • Michael says:

      Great comment! I've been looking at some of the same information. In particular about Thea Gabriele von Harbou. I've been reading through parts of the Metropolis novelization, which is attributed to Thea von Harbou.
      http://www.archive.org/stream/Metropolis_63/metro

      This is a time when eugenics is very popular, and there is definitely a eugenic theme here. What's perhaps more interesting is that there is a suggestion that the "eugenic problem" can be solved with "machine-mans", i.e. robots.

      When Freder's son asks what will happen when all the humans have died the father responds, "by then a substitute for man will have been found." And the son replies, "The improved man, you mean? The machine-man?"

      There is also a slight hint in the novelization that all the workers may actually be clones of the Federsens. "Every single man, father, who slaves at your machines, has my face has the face of your son. . . ."

      Aldous Huxley came out with Brave New World only a few years after Metropolis. Huxley's novel prominently features cloning. Both of these works of fiction seem to be vocalizing eugenic ideas that were being discussed at the time among the "intellectual elite".

      It also occurs to me that Joh Fredersen may be modeled after John D. Rockefeller. Fritz Lang says that he was inspired by the skyscrapers of New York City, perhaps he was also inspired by the "world's richest man" whose empire was headquartered in New York. The first name Joh is like John. The last name Fredersen could be based on "feller-son".

      Also Thea von Harbou has many occult and mythical themes in her works. She seems to have been fascinated by Indian mysticism for example. This has been a source of many occult groups such as the Theosophists. And as you already said, she later joined the Nazi Party. Lang fled Germany at that time because of his Jewish ancestry, but this does not mean that he did not share her eugenic ideas. The two of them worked together on two films about the Siegfried legend. Hitler is said to have been a great fan of the films.

    • awake says:

      thank you for these points, the context of time and history are very relevant in understanding this work more deeply.

      i should also like to add something that has come up in other forums that i would be interested in getting your opinion on. it is the idea that the father (Fredersen) seems to be “tolerant” of the workers rebelling so that he can then justifiably use force against them later… which is never seen. the most common conclusions are that either a scene is missing, or that he has a change of heart since his son is with the workers.

      i am of the interpretation that the violence done is that which is ALLOWED by him through the workers themselves in their dismantling of that which supports them. this compels a larger analysis of the system at play, but in our contemporary context is something to consider. a loving mind cannot conceive of the desire for chaos, entropy, or dischord, but one does not have to understand it to recognize it in action.

      Matthew 10:16

    • kazy says:

      Joseph Goebbels certainly loved the movie because of it's propaganda bent, in the same way the Tea Party would, in being opposed to anything that sounds "enlightened" in any way. Just as the Tea Party, the Nazis hated Academia, educators, etc. He saw it as a tool to control the masses. But Fritz Lang didn't write this movie, his wife did and she was a Nazi sympathizer. He was not and fled because he saw the writing on the wall. He also divorced her in part due to her Nazi affiliation. He was interviewed by Peter Bogdonovich and told he that he hated the movie.

    Another important article ! I'd like to see the naysayers deny this one. VC didn't mentioned it, but after Maria comes out of the machine she does the same dance routine Beyonce does in her " diva" video.

  18. Darryl says:

    As mentioned before, the deity – if anything – at Bohemian grove is clearly NOT 'Moloch/Molech' but rather LILITH (the 'screech owl').

    It would appear that this is the form that the high-ranking devil (if not Satan – Samael Semyazza – himself in another guise) takes in this dimension.

    Heb. 3917] liyliyth (lee-leeth')

    from 3915; a night spectre:–screech owl.

    Just because Alex Jones speaks with a gravelly voice and sounds like he knows it all, doesn't mean it is so. I think – and someone correct me if this is wrong – that he popularized the wrong idea that the owl in Bohemian Grove is 'Moloch/Molech'.

    • AllMightyOracle says:

      I wanted to comment the same thing, everything in this article is amazing and perfectly on point. The only thing that continuously bothers me with many articles I read lately is the misconception that Moloch is portrayed as an owl. Anyway I'm glad you pointed that out, and provided people with the true origin of the Owl Lilith. Alex Jones shouldn't talk about anything but the political side of things, he clearly doesn't understand or like to acknowledge what the truth behind the New World is.

      Thanks VC!! I've been waiting ages for a new article, absolutely great! Loved it! I find so much I would love you to interpret, but I guess it doesn't truly matter, we all know what's happening out there and it's up to us to use the info supplied by VC to learn, assess and interpret things thoroughly before we consume or buy into something.

  19. Emily says:

    This reminded me of a song from The Sound of Music, "How do you solve a problem like Maria?"

    It is sung by a bunch of nuns who believe that Maria is too "naughty" to be in the convent, here are a few of the lyrics:

    She's always late for chapel

    But her penitence is real

    She's always late for everything

    Except for every meal

    I hate to have to say it

    But I very firmly feel

    Maria's not an asset to the abbey…

    Oh, how do you solve a problem like Maria?

    How do you hold a moonbeam in your hand?

    When I'm with her I'm confused

    Out of focus and bemused

    And I never know exactly where I am

    Unpredictable as weather

    She's as flighty as a feather

    She's a darling! She's a demon! She's a lamb!

    ……….

    I understand that the nuns sing it pretty much in jest, and don't mind her too much, but it seems like it has a deeper meaning. When Maria leaves the convent and goes out into the big world she becomes a nanny to a large bunch of children, who are all under the care of their strict father. Over time the children (and the father) grow to love her and abandon their well behaved ways and start to have "fun" which was never permitted before by their fathers rules.

    Could the father represent God and the children represent the masses? Three guesses for who Maria is supposed to be…

      I've got to say, that's an amazingly creative theory.

      So very nice work on putting pieces together.

    • Emily says:

      Thankyou :)

      And @ Bai, thanks for the comment, although i should re-phrase what i wrote, i do believe that God is not strict in an unfair way, just in the way that a father has rules in order to protect his children from harm. However in the film the father is portrayed as being negatively strict in a way that surpresses the children, similar to the ways that the bible and it's rules are wrongly stereotypically portrayed. but yes, thankyou again! :)

      • Emily says:

        Ah yes of course, silly me. The film industry is renound for basing films on true stories right down to the very last detail without adding in things to make it a more interesting experience for the audience. My bad.

        My point was just that the person who had written the lyrics and directed the film may have had another agenda. No offence was aimed at the real life Maria, appologies.

      there is no staying away literally here, but one thing you can do is be vigilant and make up your mind: sure you don't wanna be part of it. talk to ppl around you, try to make them see what's wrong with the mass media industry, one mission we have in this world is to preach…my first time visiting this site was like a worst nightmare, it was like the whole world came crashing down and I was so scared, but one thing Ive learnt is that nobody forces you, you just make up your own mind…gud luck with that, most probably, some ppl will think you crazy the moment you talk about this stuff.

        The best we can do is be conscious and aware of what these things mean. They have basically taken over the material world and now they are after our minds and souls. Being vigilant and aware of all the symbols is the best way to defend yourself. Also believing in love, in God and goodness. Positive energy is a must. People will think we are crazy, because they are so deeply entrenched in the Illuminati agenda and they cant see anything else.

    • awake says:

      this is a very important question and request. knowledge is important so that one can recognize the influences, which are never VERY difficult to avoid unless you live as the Amish in today's society!

      however, more realistically than doing a lifetime's research into the occult (which is dangerous,) i would suggest:

      investing in real life, not giving your time and attention to things of the multimedia complex–radio, tv, video games, movies, AND the internet. give your energies to tangible wholesome pursuits and people, not those people or activities who merely parrot what they see, hear, and are told to "ingest" by media sources.

      be aware that suggesting doing this to others leads to typical junkie behavior–they will deny they are being controlled, so the best thing to do is to control yourself alone, and encourage/cultivate the loving, honest, and real behaviors you can be proud of, like generosity, hard work, and straight dealing with your fellow man. of course i would suggest you use the Bible as the test of what you are seeing and feeling to be worthy, true, and noble, specifically the New Testament. this includes with "religious leaders." ask the Holy Spirit to guide you.

      if i am coming off as a bible-thumper, please understand i don't mean to, sometimes it even shocks me that i have arrived at these conclusions! i have followed many paths, and this is the one that seems to encapsulate the whole of my "learning." i would give all that i have known for a simpler life of the Truth, His way, the whole time, i assure you. God bless you in your pursuits. hope this helps someone, even if it is hard to hear.

      IMHO, there's some basic things you can do to avoid this garbage, but it's virtually impossible to avoid it entirely. It's important to guard yourself against being unduly influenced by it. Though some disagree, I think Jesus is the perfect protection. Confess Christ. Study the bible (study–don't just read). Read up on the things Vigilant writes about (occult, gnosticism, secret societies, theosophy, etc) and read up on history because that helps put all the pieces of the puzzle together. Pray for wisdom, knowledge and understanding. Pray for peace (in your mind and heart and in the world). Pray for divine protection. God is still in control. Hope that helped! :)

    Have you , or anyone else reading this seen a series titled "the Watchnen" @ http://vimeo.com/8600381 ?

    The whole film 'Metropolis' is featured in episode #28 and offers a fair analysis of the symbolism from a biblical perspective. I've a low tolerance for Bible-thumping , yet didn't feel that any beliefs were being pushed onto me at any point during the whole series. Just MHO . Hope this isn't considered spam, I just figured it's a good place to watch the full movie and the points made by both presented works compliment each other nicely.

    Someone already vaguely mentioned Hitler and what influence this film had on the Nazis, but I want to give more info. I learned in a German Expressionism class in college that the city's workers are interpreted as Jews/degenerates, and the elite are the Aryans/perfect race. Notice how the workers look not just ignorant but also very poor and "foreign-looking". Notice how the elite appeared to be wealthy Anglo-Saxons in their physical prime. I have also heard that Fritz Lang's family became Nazi sympathizers, so I wonder how what I have heard already (regarding the Aryan/Jew symbols) and the transhuminist/eugenics crowd are interrelated. Yes, I remember that the whole point of excluding the Jews from Europe was part of eugenics, but what about this film? I do recall hearing that the false Maria was in reference to Revelations, and that she was manipulating the Workers, but this is the first time I have seen "for the elite, by the elite" used to describe why the deed was done.

    I'm not trying to redefine VC's interpretation, I just wanted to add something.

  26. Sarah says:

    I wish Vigilant would do something on the Star Wars movies. The plot is totally illuminati. The evidence of a plot for the elite to completely enslave humanity is undeniable. It is an insult to intelligent human beings for pop stars to deny the blatant symbolism in their videos and music. But maybe they really are mind controlled or not "real" anymore like in the movie. Who knows. The obvious conclusion to draw is that media, entertainers (who stay in the limelight and have no skeletons escape or be thrown from the closet), churches, governments, politicians, athletes, and anyone else with clout and money serve an unappealing agenda. You can call it the NWO, the devil, evil, satan, antichrist, beast, molech, apollo, lucifer, zues, you get the picture. Call it whatever you want. But it's REAL and its HERE.

  28. -eclectic- says:

    Dear VC and VC followers,

    I am faced with a dilemma.

    I am in love with Janelle Monáe's music. She is the artist with the album called "The ArchAndroid". All of this time I thought her music embraced the freedoms of the world as well as the individual and that her Android character, Cindi Mayweather, represented peace and the human will revolting against the powers of destruction and superficiality… Or at least that's what I was led to believe…

    In Janelle Monáe's album booklet they explain that these are all of her own dreams and fascinations about our society, but now I'm not so sure what to believe. I knew that some of the themes in her music were partially Zeitgeist, though she does give thanks to her Creator (whom I thought was God), but I never would've imagined that they would be even remotely linked to an occult, Satanic, oppressive, New World Order theory…

    VC, one of the things I find disturbing is the fact that Maria, the actual archandroid on whom Cindi Mayweather is modeled after was, and I quote:

    "…an android programmed to corrupt the morals of the workers and to incite a revolt, giving the elite an excuse to use violence repression". (Police State Agenda, Martial Law, Mind-Control).

    – Just like Cindi Mayweather who was an Android revolting against "the powers that be" in Monáe's version of Metropolis.

    It is mind-boggling.

    To sum it up, "they have given us our heroes", or "false prophets", like it was said in the Book of Revelation. "They" being the elitists who control our society, and our "heroes" being our puppeteered celebrities, politicians and social figures who will lead us into a false sense of security and tranquility (a reference to the Anti-Christ).

    I guess we can say "BaBopBye Ya" to our personal freedoms if everyone falls victim to this agenda.

    – "BaBopBye Ya" is a song by Janelle Monáe'.

        I'm really disappointed in Will Smith. But that just goes to show you what can happen when one lets their spiritual guard down. He married a Jezebel and allowed her New Age (read: LUCIFERIAN) beliefs infect him and his kids. Now those two innocent kids are ready and primed to be sacrificed to the Hollywood "beast" by his Jezebel wife while he stands idly by doing nothing. He has truly become an Ahab. Read Jezebel and Ahab's story in the bible if you don't get where I'm coming from. Yes, it seems harsh, what I've written. But, this is what I've spiritually discerned. In the natural, the Smiths seem like a wonderful American dream kind of family. In the spiritual, I'm telling you, something ain't right. Pray for those kids.

      • Say What? says:

        I agree. BTW, how do you think no-talent Will Smith went from kiddy rap to all those movies? He sold out to the highest bidder. That marriage was probably arranged for him by the "media machine" just like other celebs marriages/liaisons. You know like Tom Cruise/Nicole Kidman(Eyes Wide Shut, totally illuminati expose), LeAnn Rimes and the husband she dumped, Brangelina (Angelina and Brad), you can think of more. A further manipulation and degradation of what we are supposed to want our relationships to be like is those scripted "reality" shows marry a millionaire, Bret skank Michael's rock of love, etc etc. where the actors portray less than moral behavior for us all to consume and copy. People start using this trash as their standard for behavior. Pathetic. Wake Up America.

    so seriously how do we stop this from happening

    • kittypaw says:

      It is written in the Bible (Revelation 22:6)

      And he said unto me, These sayings [are] faithful and true: and the Lord God of the holy prophets sent his angel to shew unto his servants the things which must shortly be done.

      The solution is to stay faithful and do good. See more from Revelation:

      "7Behold, I come quickly: blessed is he that keepeth the sayings of the prophecy of this book.

      8And I John saw these things, and heard them. And when I had heard and seen, I fell down to worship before the feet of the angel which shewed me these things.

      9Then saith he unto me, See thou do it not: for I am thy fellowservant, and of thy brethren the prophets, and of them which keep the sayings of this book: worship God.

      10And he saith unto me, Seal not the sayings of the prophecy of this book: for the time is at hand.

      11He that is unjust, let him be unjust still: and he which is filthy, let him be filthy still: and he that is righteous, let him be righteous still: and he that is holy, let him be holy still.

      12And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be. "

      So, make sure you do the good work. I hope I could help you :-)

        thanks for this, KP.

      • kittypaw says:

        Just to make it clear: in my understanding we cannot stop this from happening. This is not about the world and physically stopping the Illuminati. It is about our souls. Make sure you dedicate your soul to God – that’s just about all you can do.
        And, of course, spread the knowledge where you find open ears, open hearts to it.

    • Ajay says:

      I don't think we are supposed to stop it from happening, for some reason the anti-christ needs to come before Christ himself can return. As above so below, no?

    Read "Anthem" by Ayn Ryand

  39. Shaylyn says:

    I would like to add someone very important to your list of "robotic" figures in pop culture; Ayumi Hamasaki. the very famous J-pop star which has multiple videos containing illuminati symbolism, this would include her video Alterna and one of her newest videos sexy little things. Alterna has the reference to this movie depicting ayumi as a robot, and also depicting her as a marionette becoming a pop star. Her newest video sexy little things just makes me totally sick how obvious the symbols are, the color code is there, the right eye being covered and soooo much more. If you could possibly do an article on her that would be very helpful. Here are the links to the videos…

    Alterna video (YouTube)
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QCu7iqehMv4 &amp;…

    I am totally shocked, all of a sudden the j-pop artists started to show the illuminati symbols! this would include ayumi hamasaki, BoA, Ali project (I've always considered Ali project very dark as in creepy gothic) capsule, and many more artists. I hope you have enough info to do a j-pop article… I read your k-pop article and got an idea… I have also read your other articles on lady gaga and beyonce. If you would like more information about some of these artists, please send me an Email at: Mayumisuigintou@yahoo.com

    • kittypaw says:

      What a great find. Thanks for the links!

    • Geven says:

      Ayumi Hamasaki's "HEAVEN" is also very bizarre with the checkered floor and the mindless patients walking around in a rather metropolis-like background. Dunno if the Music Vid is up on YT, but you should definitely check it out.

    • Ramen says:

      I totally agree with you. I'd also like to add The Gazette and Versailles to your list. I commented on VC's article about K-pop wondering if they can do an article about anime because there are also many occult symbols present in those shows.

      • Yaminess says:

        I love Gazette and Versailles, as well as Malice Mizer (and Gackt and Hyde <3 ), but I do notice some symbolism in their vids. Yet I love the bands anyway…especially Gackt!

        I don't really listen to American music, so most of the articles here don't apply to me lol I think as long as we know what we're watching, we can enjoy enertainment and keep our wits about!

      • feelingpurple says:

        yes definitly anime *nods* even though i really like to watch anime but d. gray-man is pretty occult-ish and there's even an anime called occult academy ¬.¬

        I think the movie "sucker punch" which will be in the movies next year march is worth checking too.

        When i saw the trailer (and still when i watch the trailler) i think wow looks like an AWESOME movie i have to go see that !! but then i watched a video where they explained where the movie is going to be about and they said some stuff about monarch things too,, of coure they didn't actually say monarch but if you read articles here you'd reconize these things after reading it all the time.

        great article as always =]

    • Kirk says:

      Yea, when i saw the K-pop article i thought of jpop immediately. I dont listen to too much jpop because i havent had the time to look up more bands, but one band i have noticed do cover up an eye and stuff is Perfume. I tried to see if theres much symbolism in their stuff, and there wasnt TOO much but i did find some.

      and yea, anime definately has some

    • MariaHelFutura says:

      It`s funny everyone here is against occultic practices, but then talks about finding Jesus. Just because something is not Christian doesn`t mean it`s Satanic. Metropolis has a MUCH deeper meaning than alot of peoples here brains would ALLOW them to perceive. Alot of you are the same people (in a new generation) that enslaved blacks and burned people who didn`t practice/believe what you believe to death. All you have to do is read the comment section of this site and It doesn`t take a genuis to see you guys are just as much or of a cult then those you speak out against. And YES people are starting to find their way back to the REAL GOD which is the ability of existence and away from your self righteous crusade to change everyone into you. You couldn`t burn us all forever.

      • Danny says:

        Christianity is just another control system for the elite to control the masses of robotic human sheep , I agree.

      • migzy says:

        how could christianity be another system to rule the masses? it is in Christ alone which i have found freedom from sin and from the moraless life which i used to live which is the agenda being pushed by these illuminated artists!

        Christianity is the only religion which is routinely mocked and debased in its own countries. Muslims dont have this problem in Saudi Arabia. In england Jesus has been taken out of schools, hospitals even churches! No other figure is mocked more hideously than Jesus Christ the Son of God….just watch South Park, the Simpsons anything. they all attack and mock our values. Its like the elite know the power a Spirit filled believer has and they want to weaken them. Evil prevails when good men do nothing.

      • InChristwelive says:

        I agree…it's like they are blatuntly "anti-Christianity. Mocking the Word of God (Bible), trying as hard as possible to discredit it along with Christ. We have nothing to be afraid off, Christ warned us of our persecution. Christianity is for the Brave…

        And it is written: Matthew 11:12 (Read all of Matthew 11)

        And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffereth violence, and the violent take it by force.

      • MariaHelFutura says:

        John the Baptist. Bap/Baf/Baph/Bath anything is a reference to water, besides baffle which means "to confuse thru the distortion of light and sound" Baphomet and many other Deities are refered to as Rainmen(showering w/ gifts etc.). So, do some research and you`ll find Dec. 25 falls under the Capricorn (which is a Half FISH, half GOAT) and it`s ruling planet is Saturn. Personally I don`t find it very surprising that Jesus met the Baptist along his journey. Also, Lucifer is the "light bearer" and it portrayed as a child holding a ring, kinda like the "ring bearer" at a wedding (again symbolizing the rings of Saturn). You people have NO idea what your worshipping.

      • MariaHelFutura says:

        Also, by wearing crosses you are worshipping what killed Jesus and NOT Jesus himself. The cross was designed by the Romans to kill people NOTHING more. I would NEVER disrespect the idea of Jesus by wearing a cross.

        Wake up.

        http://www.exposingchristianity.com

        MORE THAN 10 PAGAN GODS WERE CRUCIFIED AND RESURRECTED TO ACHIEVE GODHOOD.

      • Victoria says:

        Amen! Thos who really, I mean really understand the big picture know that Christianity is not just another religion. This took me two years. The ONLY TRUTH that can be found in this world in the Word of God and Jesus Christ is our only hope. He saved me and changed me into a different person. My husband too. (For the record: we were lost, partying, living for today, into pop music/movies etc. We had no peace of mind. God will give you peace of mind.)
        They attack the Bible, Jews and Christians because these are the people who know the True and Living God.
        Think about it: the Bible is the only “religious” text (lack of a better word) that is filled with prophecies that came true (many) and are about to come true in these final days. To anyone who reads this and doesn’t know Him: humble yourself, and cry out to him, Jesus will show himself to you. Study the Bible, not from a theological mindset, but with a clear mind and open heart.

      • nv says:

        If Christianity was being used by the elite to control the masses, why are they letting it die? I read an article saying that Christianity is a "dying" religion. Catholicism used to be the leading religion in the world, it isn't anymore, and if anything, more people are being driven AWAY from Christianity – every damn 'bible thumper' and 'christian against gays' gets a top story. I know a lot of people that think it's okay to be against inequality and bash Christianity in the same breath. Maybe it's because I'm a Christian, but I've always felt like the media and I are on different teams. I really don't believe that they are using Christianity; more like making everyone hate it.

      • Henriette says:

        You know what? I feel the same, and I fully agree with you, but the only difference is that I'm a muslim..You could say that it ''hurts'' when people mock Jesus(PBUH) or Muhammad(PBUH), and you feel the need to tell them to wake up, but they'll just end up laughing and call you ''terrorist'' just because you're religious…

      • Candy says:

        Yes the heck it is! The opposite of God is Satan just as much as the opposite of light is dark and if you are doing anything else besides worshiping Him then you are worshiping Satan because that's exactly what Satan wants. And since "the whole world is lying in the power of the wicked one", it doesn't matter what else you do- if it's not for God then it's for Satan.

      • MariaHelFutura says:

        How are you so sure that your God is not your Satan and your Satan is not your God? Like this site should teach you, the best place to hide something is right in front of someones face. Is molesting children "EVIL" ?!?! cause Priests get caught doing it all the time….. and you know what happens…?!?!? Nothing. They have the OPTION to be transferred/relocated, issued by the Vatican. BTW, Anal sex/rape w/ children a longtime ago was used to create enough negative energy to allow the evoking of "demons", being one of the worst things you could possibly do to another being.

      • Yahuah seeker says:

        You are trying to discourage people and make them doubt themselves and may the creator rebuke you. God cannot let those who seek him in truth and in spirit, those who cry out to him that they want to know him, and only him, be deceived. He reveals himself to his own. Even those who start out with deception but really cry out to God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob will find him through his only begotten son. He says in matt 7:11 "If you, then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give good gifts to those who ask him!" I think anyone who ever seeks him will find him and not the devil.

      • andy says:

        Doubt your beliefs, question your beliefs, never doubt yourself. The God of the old testament is satan. Although there is good in the bible, a lot of it is predictive programming, for example revelations. The real God is not a judgemental god handing down laws from the sky, but the God who is the one and the source of all that is and is in us all.

      • InChristwelive says:

        Please place a careful distiction between Christianity the Spiritual life style and Catholism the Religion. Kindly do some careful research between the two. The Holy Spirit is then one who reveals the truth. Jesus Christ is the Truth, the Way and the Light. I understand how you don't fully comprehend what we are talking about, and will pray that the Truth be revealed to you. Logically what you are communicating makes "sense" however Spiritually you are incorrect.

        Pray to Jehova God to give you a decerning spirit, to correctly assess the times we are living in and who the True God is. The choice is yours.

      • God says:

        All you xians do is attack the people who speak of the truth!

        What is wrong with exposing the lies of a scum?

        Satan does not require worship, it is up to the individual person to choose whether or not one wants to become a god or be destroyed at the end of time.

        Anu and his army (Greys/Angels) control humanity for now.

        But when Father Enki returns to reclaim his people, we will become FREE!

        Did you know that Satan declared it Himself that the Masons have been infiltrated by the Jews?

        The Masons and the Illuminati are now considered as one since the Illuminati had to hide under the mask of Freemasonry when the Pope ordered their execution.

        What is evil about learning about "god's" creation?

        What is evil about LEARNING?

        And compare that with what is evil about KILLING intelligent people.

        Nowadays we rant about how dumb humanity has become.

        I can't agree more. We have lost our KNOWLEDGE and sight of the truth to these useless fools who make money out of us!

        We can't even figure out that our own popes don't follow the simple commandment of "Thou shall not kill".
        http://www.exposingchristianity.com/Inquisition.h

        Do you know how much money the the CATHOLIC church (not yet even including the other sects) earns?

        Imagine how much is collected every offertory x 6+ masses a day x the number of church buildings in the world.

        Don't forget the DONATIONS!

        It is said that the church makes AT THE VERY LEAST $200B a year.

        What happened to charity?

        Why are there still hungry people in Africa?

        WHAT HAPPENED TO YOUR LOVE?!

        Lastly, it is mentioned here on VC that magick is simply the use of archaic symbols to make alterations in the subconscious.

        The church is absolutely against magick.

        Now tell me – what's wrong with using our brain – something that god, too, created?

        "Satan is always there for us, but as we progress, he expects us to handle things, as we are able to, for ourselves, using our own powers. Christianity and its cohorts deliberately make cripples out of people. Christians forever rave about how their Nazarene has healed people. These people remain as slaves because they are never taught how to, nor are they required to heal themselves or others. The Nazarene archetype stands for slavery, servitude, and enduring endless abuse in order to program humanity to be the perfect slaves in a new world order. The Nazarene places total emphasis on the "afterlife" in order to create the mindset that the life we are now living does not matter. This frame of mind is essential for enduring all kinds of abuse for the benefit of a few.

        "It has served us well, this myth of Christ"

        -Pope Leo X (1475-1521)"

        "It is a sad fact that few Satanists know the real meaning of our symbols. Most take false and erroneous information from Christian sources. Christians show their stupidity and ignorance incessantly. Knowledge is their most formidable enemy for no scam, no hoax, nor any lie can succeed when one has knowledge of the truth. Every Satanic symbol represents powerful spiritual meaning in regards to humanity reaching the godhead of spiritual and physical perfection and immortality. Most if not all Satanic symbols pertain to the true spiritual knowledge and the human soul."

      • Mariahelfutura- thank you for your isnights and wisdom, i could not agree more. We do not need to waste our time arguing over "the one true god". Even Jesus taught that we could live as he did, become what he did- the religious dogma associated with it matters not one whit. Christianity, and everyone getting "up in arms" about defending their "faith" is just another tool to distracts us, keep us fighting amongst ourselves, and to control our minds. Give your "faith" to the one true creator, and do not be so arrogant as to think that YOU know who and what IT even is! Because NOBODY DOES- simply live right, do not harm others, and be a good person. I think we all know what that means. Religion is ultimately anathema to spirituality!! Please ponder this fact before denouncing it, or trying to incriminate someone as a satanist simply because they refuse to be controlled by religious dogma. I believe in Jesus, perhaps more truly than anyone I know that claims to be "Christian"- because Jesus said "love each other as I have loved you"- and I am fairly sure that means to love even those who may seem diametrically opposite of what you represent, because we are ALL CUT FROM THE SAME CLOTH. Ponder this, sheeple!

    • AllMightyOracle says:

      Glad to see another South African on here! I'm from jhb but living in London. I wanted to reply because I experience the same difficulty in helping people see the truth. I think it's a combination of people not being able to comprehend, and others that don't want to accept this info, as you have to fundamentally change everything you have believed your entire life, or certain things at least. I think of it as your brain having to re-learn what it has been fed through our lives.

      Anyway I also specifically wanted to reply to you as I think if I never came to England I don't know if I would have believed the info, as being in London really opens your eyes to what's going on around you. Traveling to work on the tube in the morning makes us feel like 'The Workers' depicted in the film. It's already a reality, but just SO much more prevalent in certain parts of the world.

    Much awaited article, I was also overwhelmed with this movie's blatant occult symbolism when I watched it first. Thanks!

  51. Metrofulus says:

    It seems like these kind of occultt-symbolism trends have been spreading all over the world. I am called to type this column after reading Shylyn comment in here; mention about the occult-symbols in Ayumi- the japanese singer- music videos.

    I live in Malaysia, a small country located in South East Asia. Within the Malay Archipelago which consists Malaysia, Indonesia, Singapore, Brunei, and part of Thailand, emerged one Malay-Lady singer namely Siti Nurhaliza, and she has been in the music industry for nearly 15 years, and still stands strong.

    What amused me lately is the discovery of occult-symbols in her performances and music videos. She has performed in last year infamous TV3 Music Awards portraying the masonic rituals, and the most clear stage set used is the two pillars.

    On her video clips: CINTA INI (can be browsed in youtube), those symbols are occurred too, and again those two pillars are there to be seen. To my shocked, jewellery that she uses to cover her forehead has masonic compass symbol on it!

    To top it all, her latest album is called LANTERA TIMUR (in Malay language), translated into East Lantern or East Star in English. It reminds me to East Star Lodge own by masons located in South East Asia.

    It is hard for me to accept the fact that it is just coincidence, as if somebody forced me to accept the fact that Pamela Anderson has never done a boob job!

  52. O.B. says:

    First of all, the whole concept of "Elitism" is alien in nature. Human beings, when we are left up to our own devices, will not seperate ourselves into a class society . The whole concept of class and elites comes from the reptilian (draconian) beings that have influenced our race since before the time of Atlantis. The movie Metropolis is just an early visual representation of the long time "Dream come true" by the demigods that control shit on this planet, the illuminati. I call them demigods because they are not the true rulers or controllers of chessboard earth. They are simply the half-human hybrids aka the demigods, that were given power to control and influence human evolution or rather devolution on this planet because their masters cannot manifest on this physical plane. However the true masterminds are the interdimensional beings that exist in "the realm we cannot see" some would say the 4th dimension, it may however go up much higher. They are the ones that have designed this class society for us to live in as it best suits the needs of them and their pawns in order to sustain manipulation on this planet. As Morphues demonstrated to Neo in the matrix when he held up the battery, we are being used for food. Human beings thrive off of love, not manipulation. Deep down in our souls we do not seek to manipulate others or seperate or de-humanize one another on a concept of "class", these are concepts that were cleverly taught (influenced) to us by other more demonic races (fallen angelics) that seek to use us for control and energy extraction. If human beings were left alone, we WOULD create a Utopia for ALL people complete with free energy and free living for all colors and races of man and womankind as well as our animal brethren. However, this would be devastating to the vampiric, parasitic fallen angelic races (draconian/ annunaki/ zeta rigelian) that have been our secret mastermind manipulators since our race's very inception/creation! Please reserach the "alien" question as they have played an integral role in the formation and manipulation of our various societies and [human] racial integrity since far before ancient history has recorded!

    vc has done it again!!! AMAZING work! one would never have imagined that the work done years ago has a great impact on today's pop stars. once again this is EXTRAORDINARY!!!! nice work VC! was wondering if someone could tell me if eminem left the illuminati too. His album recovery paints this picture in my mind that he has nothing to do with them but can anyone explain to me???? thanks!!!

    VC, love ya!

    "Throughout the movie, the human cattle is depicted as being physically and mentally exhausted, highly impressionable and, let’s say it, all-around dumb. Like a flock of sheep…"

    I would recommend reading John Carey's The Intellectuals and the Masses – the "mass" is an invention of the intellectual elite: it doesn't exist, in that we are all actually unique individuals and should be valued as such. The Nazis loved Fritz Lang's Metropolis for obvious reasons. I'm sure our current intellectual elite love it for exactly the same reasons. Primarily, because being "in the know" makes them feel superior to us "cattle" (interesting use of word VC – akin to "goyim"). The danger of using labels such as "sheep" and "cattle" to describe ordinary people is that it makes them seem less than human and therefore expendable.

    "What passing bells for these who die as cattle?" Anthem for Doomed Youth, Wilfred Owen.

    Excellent article VC – pity it isn't more in depth – I think the messianic element of Metropolis is very interesting. In our present society Rotwang could represent the shadow government – the satanic elite? Wish you had time to go into this further. I like the Rotwang still you chose – is it the masonic symbol for having your throat cut?

    When I saw that first or second picture up top, I immediately thought of Madonna's video for "Express Yourself." Looking back at it now, visually, that video was ahead of its time.

  59. bethy says:

    This was one of Hitler's favorite movies, but for all the wrong reasons. In fact, Fritz Lang chose to escape from Germany during the Nazi regime after he was asked to make films for the Führer.

    I'm doubtful that Fritz Lang really meant to have this film as a blueprint for population control. Or that it was a movie "by the elites and for the elites."

    George Orwell's 1984 wasn't written to influence the elites into controlling through fear. Aldous Huxley didn't write Brave New World as a guide to manufacturing a totalitarian dystopia. Ray Bradbury's Fahrenheit 451 wasn't written to convince the elites to burn books. These works were neon caution signs for those who could get their hands on them. They weren't How-To Guides for the Illuminati.

    Fritz Lang was in-the-know about the occult. That much is obvious. He was aware that a New World Order was coming. And from what I've seen in past interviews with the man, his films were warnings. I think that Metropolis tends to be taken out of context from the creator's words. It is a film that is warning us about what is to come.

    Metropolis wasn't just Hitler's favorite film. It is also the Illuminati's. And that is not something that I think Fritz Lang would have been proud of, unfortunately…

    I'm sorry if this isn't coming out too clear. I'm not very dexterous enough with my words in trying to convey my ideas…

    But I feel that Metropolis is being wrongly judged.

    #13: jason: you are so right! I'm glad to hear that said. Its been on my mind for some time now as I did a video about jpopkpop robots on youtube. It was posted one month before V touched on kpop here. I read the article and the comments; the were similar to the ones here: Very congratulatory and hyped up about this subject. Then it dawned on me how much time is spent speaking on this and not on the goodness of Jesus. How much time is devoted to researching the underbelly and not rejoicing in gladness of Christ. So kudos to another fellow human being for reaching out and reminding others (as well as myself) to keep our minds on the right subjects.

    • Jason says:

      Thanks for the kind words, action is power. I have made strong efforts to watch less TV and try to be more hands on in the things that are real. We all spend too much time thinking about fantasy and not enough time living in true reality. If we can make an effort to slow it down and be the change we want to see in the world then all of this crap simple goes away. For much of my life I pointed the finger of anger and hate. Now I see the path of love and forgiveness is about looking hard into the mirror and holding ourselves accountable for what we do, think and say.

      Love heals all wounds and sets us free, conspiracies will come and go but in the end you can only try to understand yourself. Love yourself first and then you can love others. Sorry to get so heavy just trying to relate what my journey through the rabbit hole has revealed to me so maybe it can help others.

  63. hmmm says:

    How about we do this:

    lets all turn our Tvs and Radios off… relax… then devote the rest of your life to prospering in your job, education, beliefs, family, partners, you know: the stuff that counts!

    That is rebellion enough, not programming yourself with what is meant to be programmed.

    I dont trust news anymore either: who is to say anything that ever happens is correct and isnt lies fed to us to distract us from the evil doings of the puppet strings.

    Havnt turned my Tv on in sooooo long! i havnt watched an advertisement on tv or radio in even longer… i am only in my twenties, i have no idea who half the singers are that people go on about in this blog and i live in Australia.

    Excellent article. This makes the whole situation with the NWO so crystal clear.

  66. awake says:

    this is your best article yet, if only because of the foundational nature of the material. those new to this subject matter should start with a primer here!

    you hit the mark on the greater points of symbolism, without articulating some of the finer background details, such as shapes of props as hidden occult symbols, numerology included, alchemical references and the like. i hope that perhaps an even more detailed analysis for those of us interested might be seen, later. i think it would be a bit too much for a newer reader, however,so this was a great start, and i will forgo elucidating them here.

    the one personal historical interpretation i suggest is the swap of the "Machine Man" (or robot Maria) for the human, pure, compassionate Maria. i cannot help but think of how the debauched, masculinized, and calculating heartless version reminds me so very much of what Feminism has become, and done to societies. has it been worth "freedom?" i challenge anyone new to these concepts (especially a woman) to think of her self as a culture created "Machine (wo)MAN" and really look at how much of her "feelings" are acquired through media and social reinforcement. does it feel natural? what serves this culture more now, the old way, or new? here's an example: is your menstrual period and reporduction or gender an inconvenience, purposeful, or limiting to you? is it more liberating to work against the nature of your biology, or to use it? just some thoughts.

    as for myself, i got to see the movie in its (relative) new entirety this week, and i was astounded at the constant, unrelenting Illuminati/Occult messages. the "biblical" ones were the tip of the iceberg. but, as ever, the conclusions are not always what they seem, nor the symbols. this is the world that they would have for us, no?

    Light, Love, and the Truth are never confusing. that is the test for what is being offered by the enemy (often through man) and NOT our Lord and Savior.

  67. awake says:

    and it bears mentioning that in a odd, sad twist that the actor (Heinrich George) who played the foreman of the heart machine, Grot, was a Communist party member who died in a German concentration camp years later.

    now, to look back it him at the end of the film shaking the hand of the mediator (media) to connect with the thinker (as a representative of the workers) adds something deeper, to me. strange synchronicities of life.

    Interesting and illuminating article, as always.

    Some of the comments, like the one dealing with Reptilians etc. are ridiculous.

    David Icke either suffers from a severe psychosis or he is a mind-controlled puppet that is being used to discredit any serious research into these kind of things.

    • O.B. says:

      Hmmm…..coulda sworn I left I comment here earlier but o'well, guess the dis'info agent has friends in high places. As I was saying before it doesn't matter what you think mr. agent because the information speaks for itself (thank you for bringing attention to my comment btw, I think everyone should read it, maybe we can start a discussion). On top of that, who said anything about David Icke (I like your feeble attempt to discredit him. Interesting….), although he is great reference on this type of subject. I highly recommend you watch the interview he had with Credo Mutwa, as Credo has had personal experience dealing with reptilain beings.

  71. Warren says:

    Freder represents any kind of savior figure. For western audiences he is Jesus, the son of God, Joh (which is just like Jah-ova) who falls from heaven, sees the plight of the people but instead of helping he gives them something really stupid to believe in (the elites actually care, or are good on the inside, however you want to word it), and basically allows them to continue what they do, but this time with the consent of the masses because they feel they have a representative (the republic) in the celestial government. This is similar to how the elite fraternities (skull and bones) control the black fraternities and give the black community false heroes like MLK, Rosa Parks, Jessie Jackson, Tupac, Obama, and when they have told the elites how to control them and done their work they are strung up on the cross.

  72. Bene from Belgium says:

    Since 1 year I follow this site and I am really amazed what is going on in this world if you just look behind the mask (of the illuminati). Many thanks to VC for his fantastic work to make us aware of all this. If you see 1 artist who uses esoteric and occult symbolism, one could say 'so what' but what we learn here is that it is so widespread that it cannot be coincidence. There must be one controlling evil force behind all this. Thanks VC.

  73. don says:

    while many of the articles on vigilant citizen`s site -and this one, too- are insightful and most informative, the analysis of "metropolis", in my view, falls a little short of proving its point.

    after having seen this film a number of times, I ask you to also consider the following:

    1) late 19th/early 20th century germany (as well as other european countries, such as england) was steeped in pseudo-mystical, "new age" claptrap; spread largely by the "occult" spiritist and theosophical movements of the time. therefore, the kind of "occult" imagery used in "metropolis" was very popular in expressionist art circles. this imagery (re-)occurs in other famous (german art) movies of the period, such as robert wiene`s "cabinet of dr. caligari" or paul wegener`s "the golem", amongst others. much of the occult imagery is in my view used in an illustrative fashion.

    2) the script used was written by fritz lang`s wife, thea von harbou. lang later disowned the ending referred to in your essay as "unsatisfactory" and as due to commercial considerations. there is no evidence that lang actually intended the film to be propaganda for "elite mind control" purposes.

    3) the imagery used in "metropolis" is very powerful, and lang was obviously a brilliant director. this is a work of art and cannot be viewed outside of that context, or merely in the way we see "movies" today; as the "flavour of the week". the fact that many modern "artists", such as queen, madonna or even lady gaga have used specific scenes or imagery out of metropolis does not, in my view, prove that fritz lang intended metropolis to be a blueprint for elite mind control purposes.

    4) finally, consider this: "metropolis" was, in 1927, actually roundly rebuffed by left-leaning critics for negatively portraying industrialisation. why? because many people actually still believed that mechanisation of society would lead to some future "worker`s paradise" for us all: people still aspired to an industrial utopia and figured that lang was stealing their dreams!

    so here we are today, seriously considering that fritz lang was in some way singing the praises of a mechanised control society – while critics of his day and age thought he was doing the exact opposite! this just shows how times change – and people`s ideals with them: maybe we should give this a moment of thought, too…

    cheers -

    don (the film buff)

    • ~b says:

      Don, I don't think its being inferred that it was Lang's sole intention… and as you must know, films aren't created by an individual… its one of the most collaborative mediums on the planet…. especially for the financing. Lang was known to be into occult books and Germany has a rather extended history with the dark arts.

      They don't call it "The Hidden Hand" for nothing.

  78. Jennifer says:

    I have so much to say about this article, and I don’t even know where to begin.

    I am a recent undergraduate in digital film and currently I’m working on my masters in English creative writing. I research form and theory, media, critical analysis, and the like. In my junior year of college, I came across this film during my film history 1880s-1930s class. I was spellbound. It was one of the most fascinating films from that era, the imagery and everything was well ahead of its time and cannot be recreated in our own era. They have massive lines of people marching, which would just be CGI today.

    A that time, I was not well equipped on all the knowledge of free masonry and all the demonic things they are doing, but I wrote a paper discussing the role of suppressed feminine roles and cyborg technology, and if anyone’s interested in it, I’ll gladly send you a copy since it is in extreme depth with sources on this text that may prove valuable.

    This film is a marvel of its time and even its creation date is peculiar since it is so close to the world wars.

    I don’t think all media is bad, but what is controlled by the hands of the elite should be avoided at all costs, which leaves us with very little connection in spreading the word, putting out true talented artists, and spreading awareness on how organized these mystery religions are. They spread across eons, histories, cultures, and the like. They are obsessed with finite perfection, with reducing God into something that we can become. In learning more about this culture from vigilant and other sources, the light of God has dawned on me so much more than previously. I’ve always believed in God, but seeing the urgency our planet has, the evil that grows in our hearts, this rebellion for our perfect controlled utopia — it’s fascinating, and to the bone critical.

    So much of this has shadowed and confused reality and I think the more you tear off these hideous blankets that cover the light, the more your mind will be free to represent truth, reality, and leave the abyss we’ve been intoxicated with and begin to have a mind that is consumed with heaven, with highways in our mind that reflect the power of reality. There’s artists out there that are preaching against it that are still fairly at large (Muse, to name one.)

    I’m working with an agency now to connect talented people to the right venues, and I hope that it will stay an honest industry and be able to bring people to honest work. I believe in art, and I am saddened by what the overlords have reduced our culture to, a pop magnetic vomit, destroyed feminine, and satanic ritual preached 24/7. I hate it.

  79. ~b says:

    Would be interesting to get a comparison between Metropolis and Atlas Shrugged, which John Todd referred to as another blue print for the illuminati.

    Oh yeah, the mediator in the illuminati sense could be the anti-christ… "their" king.

    • Riddle says:

      Atlas Shrugged (and Ayn Rand for that matter, who I think was involved with some high ranking 'official' in the 'ranks.') is a known 'Illuminati' 'manual of sorts, hidden with secrets and topped off with some sexual scenes to keep the Christians away, I heard that on a radio show. See, that is why it is never good to 'stick' with religion too closely and let it close your mind, because then, you will not be open to 'information' which could save your life in a way..

  83. David K. says:

    At the scene where Grot is talking to Fredersen saying, "Two more of those damned plans, Mr. Fredersen…", Fredersen is sitting down with his right hand under his coat. This is the "hidden hand" Vigilant referred to in his article "The Hidden Hand that Shaped History". It was the sign of the master of the second veil, A Masonic ritual. I don't doubt that there are messages for the initiates hidden in plain view, but we can also learn something good from these occultic movies. These symbols resonate with humanity over hundreds of thousands of years and do not belong solely to one group. It is up to us to make the distinction between the good and the evil uses of these symbols. Our origins are full of symbols and mythologies. The Bible, yes that's right the bible is full of them. Numbers and secret patterns and astrology can all be found in the Bible. A little bit of advice for this forum, discussing the topic of the particular article that Vigilant publishes, also asking questions about the article or adding missing information is a good way to learn much more. I think we're all in the know by now about the music industry so maybe its time to move on.

    • Riddle says:

      Yes, true the Bible is chock full of 'secret information' that is 'taught' yet not taught, typical of the 'intellectual elite' who hoard the knowledge to themselves for their own dark purposes.. including the Church which has done that for hundreds of years.. what do you think the 'Dark Ages' were about..? Only perhaps we never came out of them in a way..? Anyway… the BIble is full of numerology, secret patterns and especially astrology. Remember – it is all just INFORMATION. One can do with it as one wishes, but it is information. One should never reject information.

      I like what you said about all that here:

      "Our origins are full of symbols and mythologies. The Bible, yes that’s right the bible is full of them. Numbers and secret patterns and astrology can all be found in the Bible."

      My Grandfather, who was a staunch old world European Catholic, very strict in a way, but also very spiritual and wise, used to believe in astrology and even said that it was in the Bible.. probably where i got my love for it.. but as some of you may know, the Catholic Church officially rejects astrology.. how strange.

      • mel says:

        Yes the church does reject astrology. Not only the catholic church Christianity period. The Bible also says do not look to the stars for information come to God and his word. Today astrology can be seen as sites like this one, utube videos ect…God say his word is the truth. Thats why I can't understand why people are looking for a breakdown of Kanye's runway, movies,etc for answers it's a sin in itself. God say do not feed off into this mess. Just because the bible mentioned it does not mean God approved of it ! I can't understand how people get so wrapped up in this, it's like falling in a trap. If you haven't figured out the answer is God by now. You may as well consider yourself a puppet of the elite. You fell right into the trap !

      • team jesus says:

        Here's the deal: yes, astrology (as we call it) is real. Nothing is random in this universe. Even the layout of the heavens is meticulously and intricately done. However, this is knowledge that was NEVER meant for human beings. Astrology was taught to humans by the fallen ones (the 1/3 of angels kicked out of heaven). They had knowledge of a great deal of divine wisdom and passed some of it on to humans just to upset God and upset the order of things on earth. I should also note that what we call astrology is a very, very tiny fraction of a percentage of what there is to know about the divine layout of the heavens. Humans need to realize our limits. Some things just aren't any of our business.

      • DetroitDrape says:

        I agree with you Riddle..

    Sorry, but I had one question. Why does the clock in the movie only go up to 10?

    • Riddle says:

      That's an interesting query David.. wonder what that means…????

    • witching hour says:

      The witching hour is 11-12pm?

    • Metal Mickey says:

      Perhaps something to do with numerology? (which I know nothing about) – a quick google search tells me that 10 = completion and fulfilment. As Freder is a Christ-like figure (Mediator) and is being crucified on that clock – I suspect it has something to do with that. Freder even shouts out "Father, Father…" echoing Jesus' cry from the cross.

    • Say What? says:

      I think it has to do with the number of hours worked on each shift. All of the time is company time.

  85. Riddle says:

    Brilliant analysis as usual.. I have been fascinated with this movie for a while and have noticed the significance of it.. and it has definitely, most definitely infiltrated the pop culture, media, music, movies, and fashion.. and of course has special meaning to the 'elite' of all these worlds..

    This article and analysis blew my mind. Thank you Vigilant!!!!

  88. Metal Mickey says:

    Just watched the film again and was struck by all the end time prophecy references. Isn't the cloned robot Maria a false prophet like in the book of Revelation? (Freder is seen reading the book of Revelation at one point). Perhaps it's becoming more relevant because we're in the end of days? (or that's what they'd like us to think).

    As usual, VC, a stunning article.

    Thx.

    As Jessica said earlier on, a lot of people are finally rubbing their eyes and getting up. I'm not sure they'll like what they'll see, though…

    I switched on the TV last night and for some reason or other, I ended up watching a compilation of old vids on TMF (the Belgian counterpart of MTV).

    Ever seen the opening sequence to Madonna's Get into the Groove?

    Or George Michael 's Fast Love?

    Two years ago I wouldn't have noticed. Thanks to you (and David Icke and so many others) the symbolism is now very, very clear indeed.

    Thanks again, VC. Can't wait for the next one.

    BTW : reread Douglas Adams HHGTTG. it is quite obvious there too… Albeit in an extremely funny way. He is just ridiculing the lot of 'em

    • Me from Colombia says:

      George Michael Fast Love is one heck of iluminati clip… I didn't notice it back then but I can remember parts of it… like he's in a chair like throne and everything is robot-like… the lyrics go like "I do believe that we are practicing the same religion" Great find!!!

    • Me from Colombia says:

      OMG

      George Michael Fast Love is HORRIFIC!

      First seconds, there is a girl who is tied to a bed, mk sec slave

      Then George Michael switches "lovers" they are all holographic, he switches them like a tv changing the channel

      Then he starts singing and there is a shadow covering one of his eyes

      Then there is a flash of a dancer with a silver belt, saturn with a cross on top

      Two lesbian lovers in the same bed the sex slave was lying in

      People start "switching" in the same bed as if they were holographic

      George Michael keeps singing with one eye covered by a shadow, sitting in a throne with speakers attached to it

      More holographic people playing with a hair dryer (?)

      More people sitting on his throne, it actually looks like black wings, people sitting on it are either making sexy poses or looking miserable

      George Michael shows both eyes, sits on throne singing with a weird three hole ring

      Gay holographic dancers start showing and dissapearing like switching

      Shadow again on one of George's eyes

      One woman sits on the bed, two twin holographic lovers appear and start undressing for her, both wearing odd rings probably masonic

      People starts appearing around George sitting in his throne, a dj holds his chair from the back

      At one point George turns into a black lady, wearing a fluffy pink shirt, he puts his hands on his hand in a pose of meditation or concentration, so does she when he turns into her

      There is a woman in black staring at them as they transform

      The devil is dancing in a room, there is a tongue picture behind him a holographic or robot woman with horns appears, dances for him, her chest becomes human

      Once again, the man with the saturn belt, moves his package in a vulgar way, there is woman in black dancing around him

      George Michael is dancing behind a shower, as he dances a woman is flashed, but only her bikini area, she wears yellow underwear

      Other people are shown dancing under the huge shower

      The same bed/matress again, there is the face of a woman singing to George over it, I guess she's like a spirit that own the bed

      She appears on a screen, wearing black long gloves

      Clip ends with the throne, people sitting on it, George Michael again makes a meditation move, somehow "unfolds"

      Then he dissapears

      Then the same bed, same sex slaved attached to it

  94. Another great article, congratulations!
    I was amazed to notice the eye symbol in that first Maria picture. (pay attention to the candles disposition)

    Glad you covered this Vigilant!

    I just had a strings of emails discussing this topic with friends. Here are some of my thoughts that figure in nicely with this article:

    Madonna and Lady Gaga are modern day symbols of Isis, the ancient egyptian fertility goddess (aka. Virgin Mary.) So they are well-funded (corporate) and sexy (fertile) symbolic Isis/Mary public figures as well as controversial pop singers strategically positioned to captivate the hearts and minds of the masses. Either way you perceive them, that's cool with the powers that be, they're inserted into our collective consciousness.

    But Gaga is not the traditional goddess image.

    The addition of a militant male/solar aspect in Gaga's persona and videos make her more of a hermaphroditic combination of both Isis & Osiris (Sun God.) This makes her an appropriate spokesperson for gay rights in the military… and the impending transhumanism evolution?

    As she is introduced on the Grammy's Fame Factory stage set "she has no soul". She is a fame "monster" and she's "turning all of you into monsters." She is, verbatim, the debased machine-version of Maria (Virgin Mary/Isis) from the film Metropolis. Is this another inspired Grace Jones/Ziggy Stardust persona? I don't think so. I believe she is the harbinger of the death/rebirth of sacred earth, the Great Goddess.

    In short, Lady Gaga is a metaphorical mascot manifested by our soulless zeitgeist.

    From what I've studied, Fritz Lang originally detested his own film right after making it because the Nazi Party became so fascinated with it. Metropolis was released in 1927 Germany during the golden era of the Weimar Republic, 6 years before Hitler became Chancellor. Lang's ex-wife, the co-screenwriter, became a Nazi and Fritz split for Paris because of his Jewish heritage. Details popular culture doesn't have time to go into about our icon's "fashion"? Just saying it's "weird" will suffice? Why? Maybe we'll find out soon. Metropolis was set in 2026.

    "All great movements are popular movements. They are the volcanic eruptions of human passions and emotions, stirred into activity by the ruthless Goddess of Distress or by the torch of the spoken word cast into the midst of the people." – Adolf Hitler

    • Me from Colombia says:

      Why would in your mind Ishtar be Virgin Mary, if Ishtar is a whore? I don't see people sacrificing babies or fornicating in orgies in the name of Mary. Because Mary was a person and Ishtar is a goddess that was never real.

  103. Monique1974 says:

    I downloaded "Metropolis" a few months ago off of Btjunkie.com and watched it. And, I must say, that movie was way ahead of it's time. But, it's amazing how it portrays exacly what's happening today in our society. It was a bit creepy to watch because it definitely was demonic to me. Some of the dancing that "Maria" does to entice the men is in Beyonce's video for, "Diva". When I finally saw "Metropolis" and saw those dance moves, I said to myself, "So, that's where Beyonce got that from!" The dancing that Robot Maria does to the men in the movie is very enticing and seductive. That makes me think of Beyonce's performances. Her dancing is highly erotic and very seductive. It not only seduces men, but it equally seduces women as well. Janelle Monae uses alot of Metropolis themes in her music and videos as well. I suggest that alot of people look at this movie. It will really give you all an idea of just what the elite's agenda has been for many, many years.

  104. GAbrielle says:

    Dont be fooled by the supposed higher conscious artists. They all succumb sooner or later. Janelle Mone is down with Badboy, you know homosexual demonic money hungry Pditty. I saw her on stage doiong the eye of horus, her hand was actually making an "o" over her eye. No confusion. They want to get every audience. That's why when Erykah badu was naked in her video and on her album had symbols of the pyramid and the eye of horus her fans said" No way, but she is a conscious artist. She would never become a puppet." They have someone for everyone-if you love hiphop, rock, techno, reggaeton, country, it doesn't matter. so don't be duped.

  105. Charlie says:

    In the analysis where Joh represents God, and Freder represents Jesus, God's son, then what sort of message is that conveying about God?

    I think everyone should take Jasons advice. The world became a terrifying and stressful place for me. My whole life I realized, then, was a lie. Everything from my childhood, everything I ate, the movies I watched, the clothes I wore, the plastic toys I played with, was a grand and elaborate lie. It was all there to hurt me. Memories of the evil that was calmly fed to me with ignorant unwavering faith in the ominous "them" sickened me and also angered me. After all of the ruthless and constant attacks on my intellect, how was I so fortunate to even have the mental capacity to come to these understandings? Genetic strengh perhaps, a blessing from God? Others are not so fortunate however, some even developed autism,add, or other awful manufactered diseases. Comparison with my younger sister is even shocking, Our dental development. Obviously our white bread and canned spaghettios diet did not provide either of us with adequate nutrition. Both of our teeth have recently become crowded ( please read Dr. Weston Prices book "nutrition and physical degeneration" if you are a lover of the truth.) but hers are far worse than mine which are only slightly crowded. When we were young, she preferred mini pizzas while I preferred a fruit salad, she did not like real meat, only processed meat such as weiners or bolonga whereas I did not like processed meat at all. It's a sad reality to live in, these times, that these things even exist, living in this strange matrix. But as Jason said once you are awake to these things the madness and depth of them can consume you. You must channel your realizations into good! Be a real person! Do REAL things,preach the truth, be an advocate of goodness and let your works step on the serpant for everyone to see! That is the defense to all of this, the hatred, anger and frustration that comes from it is unavoidable but you must go past that. The light is coming, don't despair, and be a light in the darkness until the whole world is full of light.

    Another thing I wonder is, can these things take your soul? God says not to fear what only kills the body, but to fear what also has the power to condemn the soul. The mental diseases and blows to your intellect that are caused by these evil things, this industry, the food the fumes the vaccines the pills the chemicals in everything from shampoo to fabrics to cleaners, they make people more susceptable to ignorance. They give you brain damage. They destroy neuropathways and laden your body with heavy metals and harmful substances. Thats what they are there for. I know people who hate and vehemently discredit any goodness that comes out of my mouth, and they tend to be unintelligent compared to the people who have ear for good and who want good. So in crowding your teeth do they twist your soul, do those people who have been hurt by their environments even have a chance? Can they wake up or has the ability to do so been snatched away from some since their childhood? it's a sad and scary thing to think about and I don't understand it.

  107. Hervé says:

    I feel like Janelle Monae is doing the opposite of what the Illuminati are trying to do. She's trying to liberate.

    • Dan says:

      Man, me too!! Her symbolism is 1 thing, but listen to those d*mn lyrics!!!! She's talking about love and freedom!! Maybe in the future she will conform more to their agenda, but The Archandroid is not only an album with all those themes, but it's 1 of the greatest albums I have ever heard and I've heard alot of great ones!! 1 of the best albums of the last 10 years easily!! It's like a great movie/summary of the last 200 years of music and the next 200 years, lol:)

  108. Gosh says:

    Homophobia is demonic too.

  109. bodhisattva says:

    All I can really say definitively is things are not what they seem. I urge many to think through the conspiracy, past the obvious and completely out of the absurd, where many seem to be existing.

    This "illuminati" push is an attack on our minds, perhaps even by a secret organization, possibly even called the illuminati.

    Actors or musicians with symbols or even lyrics are somewhat unaware, just buying into a meme that WILL bring success.

    Actors or musicians who come out to "educate" us about the depth, grandeur, or size of the illuminati, their actions, or the fear they are deriving from it ARE working directly for these people, some of them are completely aware, but others are possibly under hypnosis or monarch or other forms of mind control.

    This is an attack on intelligent minds and thinkers of the world. a red herring.

    Many people buy into the messages from these brainwashed stars who are "informing" us about the other brainwashed stars, to socially manipulate the people into a fight or flight stance. This helps to perpetuate the fear, confusion, and distrust of one another.

    A conspiracy does exist, but it is extremely convoluted. it's obvious imagery and signs are placed within ALL media. These moments are what I would like to call the Alley-oop, or the setup. Then another star or power blogger see's the setup and comes along for the Slam dunk. Hearts and minds are won when the viewers observe these amazing feats. If I enjoyed fishing I may have used a hook line and sinker analogy. Regardless, every time one of these so called flauntings are served up on a platter realize it is not so much to brainwash, but to give an opportunity to perpetuate the attack on your minds so you come to the conclusion that there is no hope, that they are all powerful and unstoppable.

    Free your mind from the actual tyranny and realize the real conspiracy is the attack on your cognitive skills and your ability to make free and rational decisions. Don't fear what is hiding in the shadows, they don't truly exist when they come into the light. But if you choose to live in the shadows you empower them.

  110. Hallel Rosenberg says:

    good interpretation..but the conclusion is all wrong.

    "Metropolis" is not a lesson for the ruling class – it's awfully well done and very humane.

    funny how while all your other interpretations are based on symbolic culture.. your conclusion is only base upon your own assumptions.

    Also, The fact that "Metropolis" uses "sinister" symbols, doesn't mean it's sinister itself – it's just about telling the story how it is (or how it will be..).

    And the amount of criticism this movie has towards the ruling class..sorry, it can't be what you say it is – not to mention that your connection of the "Heart" to the media is so fragile and has no logical basis…

    And of course the ruling class uses it's symbolism, demeans and corrupts it – that's to deter people like us from seeing this movie for what it really is..

    You see, you are right to say that this movie has become more relevant today..it IS a PROPHECY after all.

    I'll tell you what, if you have the time – Email me and we'll have a chat on the subject of this movie.

    Until you do – Thanks for all your time on the articles and the great work you do.

    It's enlightening!

    I’ve been cruising this site for a few months now and I’m just amazed with every article I read. What frustrates me the most is that I never learned even a fraction of it throughout my early education and college career. It’s amazing what an open mind and a point in the right direction can do to alter everything you ever thought you knew. Now if I could only talk to my friends about it….
    Many thanks for the truth. It’s become my new obsession.

  115. superninja says:

    I think it is worth doing a more in-depth article on someone like Janelle Monae who seems to be talking about getting free of the system and preaching against conformity, but is really playing the Freder role and propping up the agenda of the elites. She is not like Gaga in the sense that she superficially panders to the idea of individualism while encouraging a hive-mentality to her will at all times, but that she is preaching rebellion with the idea that there is a way out of the system. Which encourages violence from the elites.

    What Metropolis and other communication like it teaches, truthfully, is that it is a closed system if MAN is the solution to the problem.

  116. superninja says:

    No question about Monae. See the interview here: http://link.brightcove.com/services/player/bcpid9

    Specifically she mentions the link between “the hand and the head" as inspiring her the most from Metropolis, and that the "suites" of which the ArchAndroid is included, is about unity.

  118. Pheonix33 says:

    Lucifer (Nimrod,Baal) and his angels deceived the humans to construct the Tower of Babel to reach God after their downfall from Heaven (humans and devils alike).They have attracted God's wreath and their plan(tower) was destroyed.God tried to separate the language of man so humans cannot spoke one to another future plans that the demons communicated to them.But Lucifer and his angels didn't gave up and found a way to make people understand one each other again.Instead of words, the people were taught by the demons to use symbols,numbers,architecture, and thus masonry was created.This society has the goal of creating the New Tower of Babel(The New World Order,in wich all the languages of the world will be gathered into one,allowing all the people to understand one eachother again) for Lucifer and his angels so that they may finally reach God and Take control of Heaven like they did to Earth.The Architect of masonry is not God:it is Lucifer that tried to mimic God that created the physical plane.The society in wich we live is an infernal creation of Lucifer imitating (in an opposing way) the peacefully, nature like world that God has provided for us.Now you may wonder how can Lucifer conquer Heaven.Well,its army consists of legions of demons,but still they are small in numbers comparative to the angels of God.So Lucifer,profiting from the original sin of man,(in wich man didn't listen to the word of God and fell prey to the temptations of Lucifer) will try to recrute as many humans possible in his army.Without knowing it ,through various means of deceit like…science,secret societies and their teachings,staged events etc.,man will be led by the belief that ''There is no God'' and further more "Man is God''.But man is just a creature,the demons are nothing but creatures and only God is the creator and ruler of all things.These insults adressed to Him will be forgiven until a certain point,after that the guilty will be punished and only the wrightfull & onest will benefit from God's gifts.

    • kittypaw says:

      So clean and clear. Your words are music to my ears, my friend, because I feel you tell the truth. And even if sadly Lucifer will be able to gain some human souls, his destiny is losing the battle. And he knows it.

    • Not Buying It says:

      God confused the language of the people so they wouldn't build the tower so high. If the tower actually "reached heaven" people would have killed themselves because they had no knowledge that they would instantly loose consciousness, suffocate from the thin air and high altitude, instantly freeze from the −454 °F temperature, start to boil internally, and either float off into outer-space or fall back to earth. Plus the materials they used to build the tower were so bad, the tower would have crumbled like 9-11. There's no way to build a tower from brick and tar to reach that high. That was God's way of protecting us from ourselves – a perfect example of blissful ignorance. If a mass of ignorant people get together to "do the impossible" without God, they end up hurting themselves.

      Duhh – I think we all know heaven is not literally located "above the clouds." Demons are not going to reach heaven by taking the elevator to the top floor lol!

      Also, I've seen God's wrath exemplified so many ways in the bible that usually ends up with someone (or group of people) being destroyed, or tortured so badly they wished they were dead. Confusing the language was not God's wrath. I completely disagree with that statement about demons trying to build a stairway to heaven.

      Please note, the people tried to build a tower and a city, not just a tower. Please re-read Genesis 11.

  119. Pheonix33 says:

    The Machine Man is a golem:an artificially created beeing from dead tissue infused with energy from magic rituals.Just like in Frankenstein, the Golem is brought to life using electricity.Electricity could be provided from a physical source or from a spiritual/magical source (ghosts & demons are created from electroplasma).So a demon spirit could be inserted in the body of the golem,controling it.

    The Mediator is the Antichrist, half man/commoner,half demon/elitist.He will make the two races work one with eachother,trying to dethrone God from Heaven.

  122. Leeko says:

    Did it every occur to any of the people viewing these articles that the Illuminati probably doesn't exist? All this talk of the taking over everything and starting a New World Order and the rich getting richer and the poor getting poorer causes me to ask a question: Aren't you talking about the Current World Order? Think about it. In the 1980's, over 50 corporations held control over the media outlets. Now, only 6 do. Face it. The rich ARE in control and HAVE BEEN FOR A LONG TIME! Since the dawn of civilization. That's how the cookie crumbles.

    What, you think because you have knowledge of someone worshiping Satan/Moloch/Baal/Lillith/Vigilant Citizen that will change anything? The corporations run EVERYTHING. If we can wrest their death grip off our lives everything will be better. But, until then, keep praying and sitting on your ass and looking up Illuminati crap, which was probably created to keep you dis-informed and not looking at the big picture, and nothing will change. NOTHING!!!

    • kittypaw says:

      You've seemed to miss the point. It is not about changing the world or not. You cannot stop this from happening, as these things are "things which must shortly be done". In its deepest meaning it is about our SOULS. Who does your soul belong to? THIS is what it is all about.

  123. Leeko says:

    I hate to break it to you but the Army is not a convent. Anyone is allowed to have sexual relations in any branch of the military. Certain restrictions apply, such as officers not have relationships with subordinates and such. Age of consent laws and other laws that apply to citizens apply to the military as well. Where you would get this idea is beyond me.

    Also, a lot of soldiers are openly gay to their friends in the Army. Most soldiers aren’t worried about your sexual preference if you can cover their back and keep them from being hit by mortars, enemy fire, and IED’s. It’s about life and death, not queer or straight.

  124. Charlie says:

    what is that from? the first part of your post? is it a revised version of something?

  125. Drew says:

    There will always be an upper and lower tier in society. Anybody who tells you otherwise is either naive or communist.

    Mind control seems a perfectly legitimate way of keeping the lower tier in check, because hey look at it, cool buildings. Would you rather hire “workers” to make important decisions for you, or people who at least have enough brains to manipulate the media?

    Btw, VC, I do not want to push you or something, as this is not a site to grant our wishes, but still I would love if you'd do an analysis of 2001: A Space Odyssey. It is full of more than evident masonic symbols. I was thinking of doing it myself and sending it to you to see if you wish to post it some day (of course after revision, because even though I looked up a lot of stuff about all this, still you are FAR more educated in the topic) but I doubt I can make my statements as clear and as simple as you do. Imho the film is about the coming of the Antichrist ("cosmic Christ"), and also from the elite to the elite.

  128. JanelleBadu says:

    The lyrics don't lie… Listen to Cold War notice on erykah's album she is coming out of herself that is programmed to the system as in out my mind just in time…… Don't speak on artist you don't do research on…. I will surely agree if somebody gave me lyrical content that would prove these threories but you have to think before you post accusations. There are a lot of artist in this thing… and as far as janelle being signed to diddy if she is in the cult the music and lyrics she presents to us does not reflect it yet if anything it symbolizes what she might be dealing with now….. I did have question marks as to why she signed with diddy so if she starts having problems (like lupe did with lasers) we will know why……. But please lyrically research these artist before you post……. sheeesh and there are plenty of times artist allegedly put hand signals up and thats not even what they mean I'm a poet myself and if i ever were to receive fame which i prolly dnt want they'd try to get me to becuz sometimes when i performmy hands look as though they are forming the devil horns……. so just think before you post man "its a cold war you better know what you're fighting for…."

  129. Jen says:

    Hey –

    Love the articles and the site! For those who are interested, TCM is showing a restored version of "Metropolis" on this Sunday the 7th at 8 eastern/7 central time. It's really a fascinating film, even for those who don't really like silent cinema. Definitely worth checking out, and totally uncut and commercial free.

  130. Dan says:

    I think Janelle Monae is a major exception. I almost think she just flaunts the symbolism as a way to have a place in the industry, but if you actually take time to listen to her lyrics, she talks against mind controlled states and the general, sad state of the world, not to mention her music is miles ahead of the mindless music out today. That's why I think she hasn't got much radio play…

  136. HongPong says:

    Excellent work as always. However this article doesn't compare the recovered Metropolis footage with the original – which itself was heavily edited down from a very long version. I did a post awhile ago -plug :)
    http://hongpong.com/archives/2010/03/11/restored-
    The lost footage was found in Argentina some years ago and released finally a few months ago. The most strikingly esoteric image is a giant god-head called 'Hel' which is Fredersen's late wife – Fredersen and Rotwang have a rivalry over her and they argue at her giant statute. Rotwang calls for the Apocalypse in front of Robot Maria and later a priest speaks of the apocalypse coming.

    There is a creepy henchman and an entire subplot to catching the worker Freder swaps with. There is more imagery of hedonism (babylon scene) as well, and even a carphone for the henchman!

    Another great article!

    Here is another piece of symbolism is the poster art:

    Notice how the tower seems to be on the head of the robot? This alludes to the "Goddess of Fortresses"
    http://www.deceptioninthechurch.com/3-5.htm
    This is the only god that the coming antichrist will recognize.

    "he honor the God of forces: and a god whom his fathers knew not shall he honor with gold, and silver, and with precious stones, and pleasant things." Dan. 11:38

    Also how could you forget C-3PO from Star Wars?

  141. Hey VC

    Another great article and actually where I started all of my personal inquiries into the occult and the music industry's deep connection hereto. I would like to offer you (and your readers by extension) the video series that does a fair job of connecting Metropolis with the "Illuminated" music 'artists'. It can be found by googling "The Industry" or the "Beyonce Madonna Ritual".

    http://theindustryexposed.com/index.php?option=co

    Also, to add to your article another two prominent throwbacks to Metropolis that is hidden in plain site is…

    "Queen of the Night" with Whitney Houston shows many images from the movie, even starting with her traveling through a room with two pillars and gears in the background all too similar to the ones used in Metropolis. Plus she has an odd helmet (silver?) on Whitney's head.

    The beginning of every movie of the production studio LIONS GATE ENTERTAINMENT has the same moving wheels that start the movie Metropolis then the tower of Babylon pops into view right before the camera exits through a key hole, almost as if suggesting the origins of LGE are hidden or mysterious…

    When Joh Fredersen is first introduced in the movie he is doing that ole masonic sign of hiding his hand in his coat.
    Sad they’ve been planning this for years upon years and even showing it for the world to see. Yet we still aren’t stopping them.

  143. Great Timing! says:

    I'd been doing my own research on this movie for a while, helped along by some wonderful videos on youtube, and the astute observations of others. One question in general: I wonder if there are certain scenes that we the profane masses have never seen and never will? Something makes me feel the editing for the versions viewed by the general public are very different…anyone agree?

  144. Dan says:

    That movie was very interesting and beautiful in a way. I see the correlation between Maria and celebrity women now. In the movie, the new programmed Maria was a-whole-nother person and they called her the double. That is clearly a representation of MK programming, her "double" was her alter and Freder ending up breaking her programming. Also the dance she does when she is first programmed reminds me a ton of Lady Gaga. Also random side note: Gaga's elaborate outfits is her attempt to adorn herself to solicit worship which is working thanks to her very foolish followers. That is also why idols that were worshipped in the bible were made of gold and such and were very captivating visually and that's is why people should always wear modest apparel and not dress too fancy and elaborate. Jesus deserves all the praise!!

    The new game CALL OF DUTY BLACK OPS is full of symbolism too.

    See this part of the game:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yBm85CSWE_0

    At 1:00 min you can see several word appearing:

    "False Flag Operations"

    "Water Fluoridation"

    "Secret Societies Bilderberg, Illuminati…"

    "Chemtrails"

    The main character is called Alex MASON and he supposedly kills Kennedy in the game.

    he is portrayed as a MK Ultra brainwashing victim.

    Why Janelle Monae,

    I thought she was a good one. Shucks! I should have known better. I put my trust in no man.

  148. DoughnutBuddha says:

    Hey Any One Seen Many Moons video. She mentions 94 people down have ears. It references a bible verse. Psalm 94:9 Look it up. Here is the link to the Video. I will be studying it on my breaks and will post things i find interesting. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EZyyORSHbaE. The bible verse Jer 7:27 Therefore thou shalt speak all these words unto them; but they will not hearken to thee: thou shalt also call unto them; but they will not answer thee. Jeremiah is a story of a city full of false prophets who deceive. I think Monae, Janelle is warning us not one of the occult. What do you guys think? Surprise no one has broken the entire video down yet.

    • DoughnutBuddha says:

      Sorry that’s not part of the lyrics my bad. But still you can tell people the truth and they don’t hear it because there mind is conditioned by lies. Here are the Lyrics to the Many Moon Video.
      Lyrics to Many Moons :
      Verse 1:
      We’re dancing free but we’re stuck here underground
      And everybody trying to figure they way out
      Hey Hey Hey, all we ever wanted to say
      Was chased erased and then thrown away
      And day to day we live in a daze

      Refrain:
      We march all around til’ the sun goes down night children
      Broken dreams, no sunshine, endless crimes, we long for freedom (for freedom)
      You’re free but in your mind, your freedom’s in a bind

      Chorus:
      Oh make it rain, ain’t a thang and the sky to fall
      (The silver bullet’s in your hand and the war’s heating up)
      And when the truth goes BANG the shouts splatter out
      (Revolutionize your lives and find a way out)
      And when you’re growing down instead of growing up
      (You gotta ooo ah ah like a panther)
      Tell me are you bold enough to reach for love?
      (Na na na…)

      2nd Verse:
      So strong for so long
      All i wanna do is sing my simple song
      Square or round, rich or poor
      At the end of day and night all we want is more
      I keep my feet on solid ground and use my wings when storms come around
      I keep my feet on solid ground for freedom
      You’re free but in your mind, your freedom’s in a bind

      Chorus

      Closing Lullaby:
      And when the world just treats you wrong
      just come with me and I’ll take you home
      No need to pack a bag
      Who put your life in the danger zone?
      You running dropping like a rolling stone
      No need to pack a bag
      You just can’t stop your hurt from hanging on
      The old man dies and then a baby’s born
      Chan, chan, chan, change your life
      And when the world just treats you wrong
      just come with me and i’ll take you home
      Shan, shan shan shan-gri la
      Na na na na na na na na na na na

    Have you heard there is a complete version of Metropolis that was only recently found. It seems that the version we all know has some missing pieces and only a few years ago a complete copy was found and was restored. It's nearly ready to be screened if it hasn't been yet,

  151. afilmmaker says:

    As a German artist and filmmaker, I've studied German Expressionism, especially the movies of Fritz Lang.

    The conclusion of Vigilant is wrong unfortunately! Fritz Lang made this movie as a "warning" to all people out there, because he knew exactly what will come over us. The whole movie is still lost, even the longer one from Argentina doesn't show the whole story. There are interviews from Fritz Lang which are very interesting. All of his films were "warnings" for the people. If interested look at "M – Eine Stadt sucht einen Mörder" and "Das Testament des Dr. Mabuse." Hitler, Goebbels and the whole Nazibunch banned his films. He had to emigrate to the US.

    Again, the film Metropolis was a warning for us, to see the plan the Elite has for the world. Thanks!

  154. Corioa says:

    The implication of the movie throughout its length was the call for a mediator who would relieve the oppression of the workers. Being the son of Metropolis' magnate, Frederson is best suited. It echoes of Christ, and thematically it foreshadows a happy ending for all. So it concluding as Frederson being the imposter to the people…. didn't see that.

    • Brandon says:

      Precisely my thoughts, and not to mention the fact this movie is 80 years old and extremely clever. I’ve always been impressed with the PTBs elegance and execution. There can be no doubt that we have been warned.

  155. Christine says:

    I'm a huge fan of Janelle Monae and I wondered what you would say about her, because I think her music is extremely subversive and I think she is working within the system to try to send a message through it. Her lyrics are about being alert and staying aware and about the state of the world. For example on Locked Inside she says "When I look into the future I see danger in its eyes/babies die before they're born and no one ever smiles/ the writers and the artists are all paid to tell us lies/ they keep us locked inside." She's obviously heavily influenced by Metropolis as well, but it could be a distraction just to get the message out and she's just really smart. Perhaps not a step ahead, but at least can keep up. She answers strangely in interviews and has a lot of mystery about her. I'd like to see a lyrical analysis but it's pretty straight forward. Plus, I wouldn't want to expose her if she's trying to do some good! lol

  156. Brandon says:

    Great work as usual.

    Wasn't the video for Material Girl inspired in one of Marylin Monroe's movies, where she sings that diamonds are a girl's best friend so that was inspired by metropolis too? Anyways, love the site!!

  158. stacy-ny says:

    @ gabrielle- that homo demonic pdiddy hahaha

    so true

    so true someone said that new archandroid artist will succumb soon- i bet u she will – even though she looks like opposite of that – they still like how she shows the theme and will turn her around soon

    i even used to think marilyn manson- gothic rock- and lot's of metal were against the industry and unique, and far from demonic, just a show, finding better meanings in some songs and that they were being real people- but it was the opposite, they are all part of it- manson even made fun of models so bad and then he ended up marrying and hooking up with some- so he is the same hollywood shit he made us think he hated

    the only one i respect is ozzy because he wasn't hidden about it at all- for a flashback to the late 70s- check out "diary of a madman"- in every song its about his encounter with the bad side, but there is one of my fave songs- "u can't kill rock and roll" where i think he is singing to the illuminated ones in the industry

    on the cover of the album he is his old self, and on the back he has killed himself in an occultic setting and his "new self" is in white and standing over his dead, or sacrificed, self- and this was late 70s

    vigilant mentioned "express yourselff" video by madonna- who i USED TO love- but some things did'nt make sense then, like her highly sexualized videos she is chained up in some parts where u think its a sexual thing but now come to think of it a lot of it was illuminati hidden meanings – just like her speach to mj 2 mtv award years ago and also i remember her little magnifying glass she would pull out on stage sometimes going over one eye.. she is a whole other story- she is way on top even higher than jay-z and diddy

    going off topic but for the Mk ULTRA freaks out there- check out new videogame for playstation- call of duty black ops- that shit is based off of real life stuff- some hidden like and there are 6's in the background wherever u see numbers there are more 6's- but most blatant- the player on the missions is an MK Ultra programmed slaved, they blatantly tell you..

    love and kisses

  159. IESHA DELESLINE says:

    You forgot to state that Janelle Monae is NOT a supporter of the occult or the illuminati. In fact her lyrics spread an awakening of truth. Her music is inspirational, and she brings power to the people. If your going to put her face on one of your accusatory articles, you'd better mention that buddy. I'm usually a supporter of yours but here you have implicitly labeled someone as something they are is not. I challenge you to analyze Janelle Monae as efficiently as Lady Gaga, and to write about what you discover. In a world filled with hate and greed, a voice of love is rare and IS meant to be cherished.

    I am a Christian… I'm not going to hide that. I just want to make a non-biased comment…

    After reading many of these comments, it came as no surprise to me, to see comments for an article about the "Elite"/"Metropolis movie" turn into a conversation about Christ.

    Take it from me, as someone who was never religious… if you seek the truth, you will find it. The Lord Jesus Christ said that.

    And let it come as no surprise to you, that He is the center of debate. 2,000 years later, may as well have happened yesterday.

    What you don't hear from the Media, is stuff like…. the sign in the sky 1963.

    Google that one…

    Then tell me God is not here with us today…

    I really can guarantee you, no matter what you study, rather it be the NWO, or Islam, or denying Jesus as God,

    at the end of your study, if you don't get emotional, stay rational and keep asking questions,

    You will see,

    Jesus Christ is the way the truth and light.

    Christianity was invented to remove spiritual and occult knowledge (the powers of the mind) from the populace and place this power in the hands of a "chosen" few to the detriment of all humanity. The powers of the mind and soul are very real. People who are unaware of or who do not believe in these powers are easy to control and manipulate by those who are skilled in using these energies.

    To all those who discredit christianity,why then does the bible,which you claim to be an invention of the elite, prophecy about them and the times we live in,the days of distress and unrest?

  170. Sharkie says:

    Christianity is in a big state of confusion and a mess and that is coming from a Christian of more than a decade!

    Easter is a Pagan celebration; so is Christmas; so is Worshiping on a Sunday (worship of the Sun); so is a lot of other things.

    But if you even dare to say that those celebrations are wrong you'll get shot down, crucified and persecuted by other Christians. It's happened (happens) to my dad a lot (He firmly believes that worshiping on a Sunday is wrong). Even my mother will shoot my dad if he even so mentions Sunday worship might not be right!

Im just saying, like the Quran, for instance, all the words, the meanings are all the same everywhere across the world…. so, what does it mean???

    Dear Vigilant,

    In relation with this great movie, another interesting topic that deserves observation is it´s relation with gematry/kaballah. The presence of the numbers 11811, 277, 717, 241, 125, 240, 326 etc for sure are not by chance.

  175. BB says:

    An interview with screenplay writer, Frtiz Lang.

    " I was not so politically minded in those days as I am now. You cannot make a social-conscious picture in which you say that the intermediary between the hand and the brain is the heart. I mean, that's a fairy tale — definitely. But I was very interested in machines. when I saw the astronauts: what else are they but part of a machine? It's very hard to talk about pictures— should I say now that I like Metropolis because something I have seen in my imagination comes true, when I detested it after it was finished?"

    He and his wife, Thea Von Harbou wrote the screenplay. Lang used soviet science fiction as his muse for the film.

    But all the marxist Ideal of class struggle was Harbou.

    Lang soon discovered that nazi members took this film and were fascinated.

    Later in 1933 his wife Harbou became a passionate nazi party member and they divorced year later.

  176. Mammaluca says:

    Dear VC

    It seems to me that you have omitted or maybe misunderstood a rather important part of the plot; – When Joh Fredersen commands Rotwang to turn Maria into an android, it is with the intention of starting a conflict between her captivated fellow workers and herself. But Rotwang (unlike what you've posted in this article) has his own motives and tells her to destroy Metropolis and kill Joh´s son – Freder. So he only pretends to obey Joh´s vision. He doesn't care about corrupting the minds of the workers and their "supervisor" (Maria) as far as I've understood. For him it's about revenge over his biggest love (Hel that is) who chose Joh over him because of his leadership and wealth. So this "Hel" also has somewhat of an important role in the plot which gives the movie a twist that doesn't really fit with the direction of this article…

    Happy new year

  177. Donna says:

    The elitists hate God. They want to eliminate our worship of God. They want to be our god. If they can do that, they will manipulate us into doing anything they want.

    The process has been underway for over 100 yrs. They replace God's commandments with their commandments. They keep us under greater and greater stress: more rules, more laws, IRS pressure, criminal prosecution or jail time by such things as DUI's, expression of free speech, bringing a butter knife or a vitatmin to school.

    Our society bases (or based) it's laws on moral principals which came from Christianity and Judaism. You don't have to be Christian or Jewish to understand the value of these moral principals. They are necessary for a just society. Of course you don't have to follow God if you don't want to. However, nature abhors a vacuum. If you don't believe in something, you will fall for anything, namely pop culture, new age philosophies, feel-good policies our nation can't afford, etc.

    Great article.kinda caught me off guard.This all sounds strangely familiar.

  179. Elouise says:

    Hi,

    I'm Elouise and i'm 12 years old, I stumbled over this site a year ago. I've been reading and reading all your articles, Vigilant. When I first read this, I was in utter denial. But I did my own research, everything made sense. I used this knowledge to protect myself. I stopped listening to the horrendous Gaga, non-stop beats of K-pop and I followed my conscience.

    I'm a little more different than most of my classmates, I love literature, the arts, drama and classical music. But here's the thing. I have fallen in love with a particular young man. He was just like me. We were, a litle more mature than most of the people. He loved science like how I loved the arts. But All of a sudden he changed, he was caught stealing, and all of a sudden he became reserved, silent, and there was this dark cloud over him. This is not my child's imagination, mind you. I've observed enough to have understood what all of this was. He watches erotic videos, masturbates and has become extremely violent. He once hit a girl of 8 years.

    I have to admit I have desired for a period of time, but my conscience guided me through it. I think I've went through the same thing as him. We could not understand religion, we talked about it long before, when we were in a relationship.

    Now to the point. I would like to ask, does music have something to do with his sudden change of behaviour? I had many occult dreams of him. He has suddenly started liking Lady Gaga, Beyonce, P!nk and many others VC has mentioned in the VMA article.

    Thank you so much, it would mean alot to me if I have a reply. Thanks once again.

    Anyway…..the articles on this website are mindblowing and all seem very plausible to me. Thanx a lot for your research and effort you have putten into this great looking website. There's still many hours of reading to do for me.

  183. Steve says:

    I actually saw the movie. The longest version to exist in these days. Saying that the morale is that the Metropolis setting is perfect, it just needs a mediator is like saying the Star Wars double trilogy was promoting the Empire.

    The city is flooded in the end, the "Moloch" is destroyed, and the opposing forces/ideas/people make piece, shake hands and then the final conclusion is that "the head and the hand cannot work without a heart", which, in my interpretation is calling for a complete society. It is not a communist movie, nor is it a capitalist one. It is simply describing the dangers that totalitarian societies without a strong and active middle class cannot stand in time.

    The idea that it was a film by the elitists for the elitists is based on many things, except reality. In fact, the German Film Industry suffered a horrific blow, as vast amount of money was poured into it, and the audience of the time found it.. boring. The film industry never recovered in Germany after that, which would surely not have been the case if the rich and powerful elite was supposed to keep it alive for their own purposes.

    The movie was later cut to oblivion in order to make a digestable movie for the contemporary viewing public, which is why it is impossible to find a full 100% copy.

    What i'm saying is, finding the truth behind the scenes is awesome, but forcing it to be where it is not is counterproductive at the very best. Suppose there are people who haven't made their mind up about the topic on display on VC who turn away in distrust after reading about something they actually know well.

    Vigilant very good article I watched the movie and weirdly its is very similar to avatar, the storyline is kind of similar in a way is it possible to do a full article on avatar or a comparative article with Metropolis.

  185. Andrei says:

    You should definitely write an article about Lady Gaga's Born This Way. It contains countless references to Metropolis.

  186. Ank says:

    Metropolis is not an “Illuminati” film. It is a sci-fi film with many biblical allusions and references. And it tells the timeless tale of love that transcends social strati. You left out other parts of your film to support your thesis more. Like the destruction of the worker’s city, and the salvation of the children. Or the death of the robo-maria and rotwang. It is clear from the ending of the film that humanity has a new resolution and beginning, with their messiah (Freder). So it is clear that things will not be the same as they used to be, with vice and imperfection. Everyone will live in peace and harmony and for the greater good.

    • Riddle says:

      I don't it matter if Metropolis is an 'Illuminati' film or not.. the point is, they are using its precepts in their work.. and it is a film of its time and beyond its time.. brilliant in its cinematography, message, music, etc. The fact that it has a message of love and redemption doesn't matter to them.. they are focusing on the robotic and technological/authoritarian aspect.. that's the point.. they are hoping for a different ending than the movie! But we shall see… we shall see…

      • Riddle says:

        I must say… after reading through this article one more time.. I re-emphasize what I just said previously.. this is a movie as VC says "by the elite, for the elite” how else cannot it not be? Unless someone is ignorant or not getting it or is trying to be a 'disinfo agent' as we discussed in a later (more recent article on VC just posted)..

        It's almost like a training manual for them! Like it's secretly saying – 'Here is how to be' Follow this.. it is priceless in so many ways so we can get a glimpse of this inside world…

    Others have pointed it out, (maybe not here, don't know, haven't read all the comments), but it's interesting to note how in the first picture the workers represent the way that Chinese industrial workers line up today in their industries.. it's true.. Look up pictures.. and I have read other articles that mention that 'America' wants to emulate the industrial complex of China.. you put the pieces together with this and many other facts..

    I've been a fan of Metropolis since i saw it for the first time when i was in college, i always tried to close my mind to all the illuminati agenda as i used to work as a teacher on church while growing up.. i decided to stop teaching as i saw that people wasnt interest in spreading the word of God.. they were interest in power, money and sending their own message..Now a friend of mine brought the subject again and i remember all this information i had hidden in my mind…it was really scary opening those rusty file in my brain and now all i want is to keep reading and want to be informed..thank you for your website.. i like it very much!

    Excellent article! I would like to add that Fritz Lang's wife wrote the script and she was a big NAZI supporter all her life. USA helped to finance the movie. This movie is so Masonic, I can't believe it. Did you catch the "hidden hand" in the leader's coat? The 2 Marias seem to predict mind control, with 2 personalities, one evil, and one good. Also, although Maria is preaching to the workers in a Christian catacomb setting, she is telling the story of the tower of Babel. They love to infiltrate Christian settings while they destroy it. The tower of Babel was erected in defiance to God, so that humans could reach the heavens and become gods themselves. This doesn't seem Christian to me.

    How can you not see that, despite the apparent 'elitist' tone of the film, it is a dystopia so you can't rule out the idea that it is supposed to criticise the attitude it expresses. The dehumanisation of the masses is being criticised not promoted. Saying that it encourages an elitist attitude is like saying Orwell's 1984 is encouraging totalitarianism. jeez.

    VC Don't forget Jane Fonda in "Barbarella" almost a remake of "Metropolis".

    I totally thought the same thing after watching this movie. However by labeling it "great," does that mean you support this elitist movie of mind control and how they go about doing it? Confused on that lol.

    I actually watched this with the Pink Floyd Sync of Wish u were here. Kind of wierd how their albums sync to all of these old movies like Wizard of Oz, this one and others.

    it's so sad cuz you know the elite are going to have their way and everyone's going to go to hell and have eternal pain and suffering because everyone is apathetic or ignorant.

      The Metropolis movie can be seen in three parts online. Skip to about 4:10 for the start of the movie.

    Adding another HUGE, name to the list of pop stars who have played 'Ivy the Robot' (I think that's tight): Whitney Elizabeth Houston.

    Watch The Bodyguard (1992) in which she plays Rachel Marron. In the first 10 minutes of the movie, Frank Farmer walks through her house and passes a full-size replica of the robot on his way to her rehearsal space. A little later on, her costuming assistant shows Rachel the headpiece, and again, it looks like the android's gear. So does the outfit being fitted onto her body double.

    Later in the movie Rachel performs at a club. I think it's Club Mayan (Pyramids. Hello!) During Rachel's performance, snippets of "Metropolis" are shown on the TV screens behind her. It is unmistakable.

    As Rachel prepares to sing, watch the scene closely. The movie quickly cuts to the mad scientist (in Metropolis) pulling the lever to "activate" the android. As soon as the lever falls, the scene cuts back to Rachel who throws off her cloak, pulls down her mic and starts to sing.

    I thought her outfit seemed more dominatrix/temptress than android. And then at some point the crowd gets worked up into a … riot. It follows the plot in the old movie about Maria dancing in a gentleman's club and starting pandemonium.

    It's all there. And during her performance, you see snippets of "Metropolis" on the movie screens in the club.

    The movie has a scene where Frank Farmer is looking around Rachel Marron's boudoir. There are some full-height photo reproductions that almost look like screen shots from "Metropolis." You see men and women formally dressed in black (or white) tie. Super formal. But everyone seems to be scowling.

    Did Whitney Houston know what she was getting into when she did that movie?

    Loved this article. loved the film as well. I would point out that Madonna's "material girl" video was derived from Marilyn Monroe's "Diamonds are a girls best friend" act. of course that may as well be a head nod to metropolis.
