Aguirre (pronounced uh gear ay) is the quintessential Illuminati operative. In the movie (foreign language) Aguirre becomes the archetypal tyrant as he tortures and murders his way through the South American jungles in search of gold. Director Werner Herzog illustrates how the disconnected Spaniard brings "civilization" to the jungle. Aguirre cares about one thing: his unlimited empowerment at any cost. Or the end justifies the means. Aguirre would ask this question: what good is having power if you can't abuse it?
I recommend this movie with a warning: it is not a hyper-spliced, MTV style action entertainment designed for people with ADD.
Aguirre illustrates the values of the military or weaponized mind. A mind that finds all that is loving, sensitive and spontaneous as nauseatingly repulsive and ridicule worthy.
My favorite scene occurs about 2/3 through the movie when a priest runs an innocent Indian man through, then proclaims that "saving these savages is hard work."
For the Spaniard's quest for gold, cold blooded murder is a small price to pay and nothing has changed today. The difference is that extortion and murder are much easier to hide in the big city and mass-media.
Right after the JFK assassination Hoover was asked if he thought that organized crime had killed Kennedy and he responded with "...there is no such thing as organized crime." His statement is given credence in the mainstream media who give the impression that all crime is committed by "lone gunmen" and that there is no such thing as a conspiracy.
