Top 100 World Changing People/Events
Looks pretty good but what about Hitler, Disney, Castro, George Washington, King George III, Charles Manson etc.?
2. JFK; especially as well because of conspiracies, the never ending milking of the public with endless conspiracies by book authors and documentary makers. If you say conspiracy, I say JFK (and 9/11). JFK conspiracies where broadcasted in my country and I saw them at a young age. Not understanding the corporate motive behind them.
I'll be most interested in seeing more evidence on Sidney/MLK. You posted this ages ago---the basic facts---and I reluctantly had to admit that I saw it once you
pointed it out. A shocker! Seeing the "great history makers" of one's own lifetime turn out to be characters in a massively produced faux "actor's reality" defies description. A roller coaster ride, to be sure.
I like your style with this. Most sweeping influence might go to Kermit Roosevelt for his role as Hitler, thereby influencing millions during WWII and also as the quintessential villain of modern times. Then as Walt Disney who influenced millions with Mickey Mouse & Disneyland and goes on today with videos and movies designed to mold young minds. Parents who grew up with "wholesome" Disney cartoon characters easily buy into the brand for children and grandchildren. Not to mention the huge media conglomerate controlled by Disney Corp. which continues to influence millions worldwide. An interesting factoid is that "both" men compulsively washed their hands throughout the day.
That's true, do we know who the actor behind Che Guevara was? Disney must be up there too, agreed. Tony Greenberg must deserve a mention somewhere as well, for sheer enthusiasm.
Yes basil, now you know the hell I deal with when I try to outline the navigation of this web site . My mind exploded and I get sidetracked. It's so tough since they play multiple roles and no way to know what character is the base character/birth nane
Very true. Combine that with all the players involved that were well known but disguised. Like the three that worked at the schoolbook deositoy. Little Richard, James Brown, and Chuck Berry, all three claim were employed by the depository and there that day.
Even though I have covered Whitney and recently we see her so called dead daughter playing a few roles in recent cop killings, I only cover people that make policy or attempt to cause harm to others. In other words actors doing what actors do is not my conscern. It becomes my focus when they cross the ethical line and attempt to damage others.
And then Moshe Sharett, the first Prime Minister of Israel! What a hoot! What a ride for our dear Kermit! Hitler, Disney, Sharett. I'd like to see ear biometrics for this, but looking at the "3" men, it seems entirely plausible knowing what we know. They all do "coincidentally" look alike I think. How much fun those in control have fooling us and leading us around like imbeciles!
I see what you mean after attempting a list, you need a 3D filing system for this lot!
Oh for sure. The list can go on and on. You've zoomed in on the major ones. Are you still thinking Sidney Portier played MLK?
That is interesting about the compulsive hand washing, sounds like a guilty conscience to me, indicating humanity in there somewhere at least.
I'm noticing how difficult it is to categorise the whole cast in order to get a straight Top 50 influential character list. e.g. Jackie Kennedy could potentially score low but is this fair considering the same actress played the roles of Marilyn and Carter? Could you do 2 books Ed, the other one being for the Top 50 actors behind the characters?
Also, you know how this lot love giving each other awards?..there's no way that they'd be able to stop themselves doing prizes for the under-cover actors is there? Do they throw a secret ceremony swapping platinum oscars?
