Pixar Animation Studios averages making more money per film than any other film studio. Perhaps the reason is people recognize and are attracted to powerful truths slightly veiled in allegories; as in this six-minute video.
A Bug’s Life (1998) is about two societies: one numerous slave society of ants and a small psychopath-led parasitic society of grasshoppers.
The movie opens showing the ants lost in routines of slavery and most literally dominated by fear to the extent they cannot/will not see what’s right in front of them. They are hostile to obvious-superior innovation of one ant that challenges them to think.
The grasshoppers use the ants to produce their food in psychopathic fashion: claiming to “protect” the ants and being “compassionate,” while openly brandishing violence to enforce obedience.
From one ant’s passion to create a brighter future, events develop whereby the ants plan resistance. When the plan fails and the psychopath leader orders public torture as a “lesson,” the ants finally see the gangsters as violent parasites, stand together, and drive the slave-masters away.
The act of standing instantly splits the 1%, isolating its leadership to capture.
Human beings in the 99% are the ants, of course. The 1%, and whatever occult powers drive them, are the psychopathic grasshoppers. When the 99% recognize the 1%’s psychopathy and crimes, stand, the 1% of humans will also split and abandon their “leaders” for arrest.
