Where are we going? Who is our leader? If someone where to come to you with the classical line “Take me to your leader”, where would you take them?
Oh and if you are Marvel and listening. Take me to your leader so that I can join in the Civil War campaign 🙂
Take me to your Leader … Now!
Protect The World – Be The Shield
I’ve just finished watching season 2 of Agents of S.H.I.EL.D. …
I know! I’m bit behind and I wonder why it took me so long. I was on track for season one in time for Captain America: Winter Soldier. That movie is one of my favorite movies in recent years. So is it that wasn’t in time for Avengers: Age of Ultron (also a new favorite) last spring. I guess season 2 got of on slow start and it slipped through my fingers. Because the rest of season 2 has been a blast with me doing at least one episode per day. I’m not really a binge watcher, because my mind usually spins up after me watching anything exiting and I need to do some creative writing or blogging after that.
So here is why I’m so exited. It’s all about changing and protecting the world. For all the right reasons and with all the right methods. And the hardship and the dilemma in doing just that.
And the question how we should be led into our future. As we are witnessing all over the world democracy is having some problems right now. With all sorts of un-democratic people and political parties rising to power.
The mass media who is supposed to watch the power and what the power are doing has been shooting the world in our foot for so many years now that it has gotten out of hand. Because what happens when all the headlines are filled with fear and catastrophes, for as long as we can remember, we think the world is burning in the end, and that triggers Authoritarianism, as it turns out.
We need a new type of leadership and visionaries to lead us into this emerging future. And we need Guardians and Custodians of Spaceship Earth to make this future.
So who should we put in charge of leading Spaceship Earth into a prosperous future?
A Future Dojo – School
I dream I have is to create some form of Dojo or school where we can train all those Future Captains, Planetary Guardians and Planetary Custodian we are in such dire need of. And apparently there are many millions of us who would be interested in making Planet Earth a better place to live. They are called Cultural Creatives.
Are you interested in starting a school for this Future heroes as well?
I will dive more into this in coming episodes of my podcast: Framtidspodden
A Moral Compass
And Agents of S.H.I.EL.D. is not just another pointless action series without any real storytelling messages buried inside it. It’s the real deal filled with questions and philosophy. For all of us that longs for a time when Captain Picard was our moral compass.
We Don’t Need No Civil War
And it all wounds up for what I think will be this years both most important and best movie – Captain America: Civil War. If it can stir up as much thoughtful storytelling as Winter Soldier, Age of Ultron and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. all have.
In the words from Cold Hand Luke in the Guns’s and Roses song:
“What we’ve got here is failure to communicate.
Some men you just can’t reach…
So, you get what we had here last week, which is the way he wants it!
Well, he gets it!
N’ I don’t like it any more than you men.”
“I don’t need your civil war
It feeds the rich while it buries the poor
Your power hungry sellin’ soldiers
In a human grocery store
Ain’t that fresh
I don’t need your civil war”
I’m Your Captain, Marvel
I will not dig into Season 3 of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and catch up well before Civil War in time to think more about and also host some great events around it.
I think Captain America stands for true leadership and the way forward into the future.
What would be cool for me as a Future Captain and Ambassador of The Future, is get in on the action and make all the GALA premiers of Civil War to awesome, thoughtful events. Or any more of the coming Superhero movies. I’m very interested in Ghost in the Shell as well 🙂
So Marvel if you are listening. Please Contact we me! For the sake of Spaceship Earth!
