The Origins of the Cinemafia
To find where one’s enemy gets its strength, one has to dig into the history of the enemy until one gets to the origin. The Cinemafia has been around a lot longer than I thought. The Cinemafia was founded in 1877 in what was then known as Menlo Park, New Jersey. This Cinemafioso somehow has been able to become an American icon with a town named in his honor. The person is Thomas Edison.
Thomas Edison did not invent as many things as people thought. He had over 1,000 patents, but mostly because he marketed the inventions of his employees as his own. Someone else would do the work and he would take the credit because he patented his employees’ inventions as his own.
This alone wouldn’t connect Edison to the Cinemafia. Here are a few more facts about Edison for you to digest: He was a co-founder of General Electric (GE). GE is the parent company of NBC. NBC wants us to think that “The Biggest Loser” and “Dateline:NBC” is entertainment. He also has a patent on the kinectograph. The kinectograph is the precursor to the motion picture. It the thingie around in the 1890s that people used to look into while turning a crank to look at motion pictures.
The Cinemafia, like other multinational corporations, have branched out into other fields to diversify their sources and to make themselves relevant across a wide variety of formats. Today’s Cinemafia has a presence in movies, television, televangelism, and music. Taking down the Cinemafia will not be easy, but it must be done. Who is with me?
