I’m pitching a movie scenario to Hollywood and I would appreciate your comments.

As a country’s economy struggles under unprecedented inflation, crime and government corruption run rampant. The aging leader, elected under suspicious circumstances shows obvious signs of mental deterioration and he has surrounded himself with advisors without real-world experience but practices academic ideas that have no basis in reality. Staff is chosen based on race and sexual identity than the professional background.


Even the proud and powerful military has fallen under the control of men and women who are more concerned about offending fringe groups than training soldiers and sailors to fight and win.

Meanwhile, a megalomaniac billionaire continues to fund politicians in major cities if they adopt laws that will destroy the morale of police, and allow the flow of illegal drugs and Immigrants to pour over the borders.

Over several decades the schools in this nation have subtly become indoctrination centers where emphasis on basic education in reading, writing science, and mathematics have been replaced by education in gender identity, personal feelings, and a manipulated history that portrays the country as inherently evil.

A government program encourages the killing of unwanted children and a movement is growing to eliminate the infirm elderly whose medical care has become too expensive.

The downtown area of many major cities has become havens for the homeless and mentally ill people who set up tent cities and use city streets as outdoor toilets. Drug and alcohol abuse is common while the criminal element rob, loots, and burns businesses without punishment.

Although some citizens have become despondent at what they witness, a growing number of hopeful new leaders are plotting ways to restore this one great land to its former glory.

What do you think? Is this too far-fetched to even qualify as science fiction or fantasy?

  1. It DOES sound like a sci-fi movie, but unfortunately it’s what we’re living with. With hope and praisingOur Almighty GOD, we will turn this around. As we all know in the end: GOD WINS.
