I got a kick out of the Church's latest PR effort; a video entitled "Workers Paradise," showing the beautiful, lush, opulent facilities at Golden Era Productions.
In the first place – don't you just love that title? When I first saw it, I thought it was an Anon gag, but no, that's what the Church PR geniuses actually called it, "Workers Paradise." Of course, to anyone but the isolated and brain-dead staff at the Int Base, that calls up images of Stalin's slave labor gulags and purges. Exactly.
The heavily sarcasm-laden announcer voice drones on, saying things like "Does this look like a slave labor camp?" And he asks, "Who wouldn't want to work in a place like this?" Well, apparently no one wants to work there, as the vast Base facilities are shown as entirely devoid of human life. It's decidedly creepy.
