Was The Immortals more than just a great story?
Since the birth of The Immortals in 1992, Tom Althouse only in the last few years has even become aware of the huge impact and significance that lay hidden in the words and images of his screenplay.
The old adage of life imitating art or vice versa is brilliantly shinning through the example of Tom's body of work that was written as an outlet for the annihilation and suffering poured upon him by the religious right in the early 90's.
A society based on the outline of Hitler Reich and now the Religious Reich. A One World society. Humans as pawns. Manipulating faith for a self serving purpose. Was this fantastical ideas that were just fiction stories? In 1992-1993 yes! This was a fictional expression of Tom's awakening into the inner workings of the Religious Right. But how is it now that in the last 10 years mountains of information has come forward revealing the truth in this very agenda!
For truth seekers out there, you can download that mountain of information through the open sources that we have available to us now. We are fighting an uphill battle against the regime that holds the power of the media industry, the court systems and the power structure that holds the reigns of the finances. But we are the true power. Let's use our voice to speak out and break free for not only the writers but all creative minds that are propelled by their heart to create a better world.
