Normality - but for how long?
Normality is returning to China, with many services beginning to operate as before, but I know for many of you outside China it certainly isn't. Surprisingly, other countries are being more authoritarian than China in their measures. Being told to stay at home for a long period can bring an array of problems to your life: health decline (mental & physical), financial loss, religious impacts, family/relationship issues and of course boredom possibly as well! This post is to satisfy your boredom.
For those who are feeling a little bored, and may be tempted to watch a film, consider one of the films you can download for free here. The list includes some of my favourites because they resonate with the times we are living in. I'm not a film buff, I avoid most of the drivel that comes out of Hollywood these days, so the list are films which are older and you may not have heard of. But give them a watch none the less, I can promise you, they have great plots and hidden messages encased in them.
Alternative media channels growing exponentially
On the topic of films, I couldn't name a good film that's been released recently. They are getting worse and worse. They often lack a solid story, overuse special effects and seem to be dumbed down to appear to all audiences. Not to mention the subliminal messaging and brainwashing that goes into them constantly. When you see who owns these companies, you may start to gather a better understanding into the reasons why. The above problems is exactly why the film business is a dying one. The masses are going to cinemas less and less, and choosing to spend more time watching films & programmes which are more enlightening. Alternative media channels are the places which are seeing extreme growth (bitchute.com, lbry.tv, gab.com & bittube.com, to name a few).The mainstream channels and studios are only still going because they are propped up by very powerful individuals and governments. Their messages are worth the cost in the eyes of the elite.

So as promised, here are the films for you to download. Don't just watch them with entertainment in mind though, analyse the message from each one and think how does this resonate with what's going on today? Further research on these is highly recommended, you'd be surprised where you'll end up...
