Elisabeth Moss Describes A 'Fictional' Totalitarian, Right-Wing Regime

  • Опубликовано: 21 апр 2017
  • It's not a huge stretch that 'The Handmaid's Tale' star Elisabeth Moss is playing a woman living in an oppressive, fundamentalist, dystopian America.

    I assume she was born into Scientology because of her parents, as many people are. Brainwashing is real people, just look at most religious folks. And leaving Scientology means leaving your family and community.

    This story took Saudi Arabia (sans impregnation rape) and layered it over a fictional future America. Neither Atwood nor the makers of this series had the honesty or guts to write/shoot that story, so we have this hot mess resulting from the melding of feminism and wokeness. Every character is laughable, but in the end I can't help but root for Gilead, if only to wipe that smug look off June's face.

    I love her even if she is a Scientologist. She's such a breath of fresh air. She isn't the standard cookie cutter "Hollywood beauty." That certainly isn't to say that she is lacking in the beauty department because she certainly isn't. I just love that her face has some actual character and she's built like a real woman. So much talent in one package.

    I like the series but her being cast as the lead it's the one thing that challenges me during the viewing. She's a very talented actress, I liked her in everything she did, so I am not saying she's not good in it: it's just that in each episode I watch, every now and then, I am brutally pushed out of the comfort zone of the suspension of belief and have to confront the fact that the actress in front of me is (very believably!) portraying a just disdain for a regime which has lots of traits in common with the cult she was born into and continues to be faithful to. She, as an actress harbors feelings that she is not able to face or recognize in real life, and I have to say I find this very disturbing.

    I have seen every episode of Handmaid's Tale and I don't see a "right wing" conspiracy at all. Quite the opposite, I see the far left progressive movement, if left to its own devices going down a path as draconian as depicted in HT. In addition, there is very very little Christianity going on. For starters, no talk of Grace, churches are outlawed and they keep quoting the Old Testament which if you are a Christian, you know we have been freed from the law. Lots of pseudo-Scientology in this story and scarry.

Under his eye is akin to hail hitler. That’s left wing ideology! Or people governed by communism! It’s a disturbing show. Sometimes I can’t stomach it.

    The Handmaid's Tale is the only series I've seen that stars Elizabeth Moss. In fact, it's pretty much the only place I've seen her. When she walked in and sat down, all I could picture in my head was that this was actually and truly Offred/June, attending a talk show after the fall of Gilead to tell her tale.
    And that feeling was really, really cool. Because it's also plausible. Talk shows would most likely be reinstated after Gilead is gone, and I could see June attending one.

He would NOT let her finish a sentence, let alone answer any of his questions. God! Shut UP! What is his DEAL!? Is that his lame ass way of flirting or trying to be a good host? Because she was AMAZING at deflecting his constant interruptions with aplomb and grace. Anyway, can't wait for Season 3!

    The Handmaid's tale will never happen. an ARMY of brainless morons would have to work to dissolve the 2'ND amendment. and then push to disarm the citizenry and have the government take all the guns away from the people. This same army of nitwits would then have to openly call everyone who disagrees with them a homophobe, a misogynist, or a racist and push even the most sane and understanding liberals further and further to the right. They would also have to openly support ultra conservative religious nutjobs who descend on countries like a Tyranid plague and form NoGo zones and rape gangs. and cause a deep polarization and schism in society.

      +Zachary James Short yes, but a lot of people get ph d's and don't remember 70 per cent, or so, of what they studied. (my sister is a perfect example). A lot of people spend hours memorizing facts to pass a test, to get A's, and don't understand what they are studying and can't use it in real life. Medical doctors and pharmacists, mechanics, etc., make mistakes all the time because they do not understand and do not remember MOST of what they studied. There are a few people who are very intelligent, and can rise above the inefficient way people are educated, but what about those who have dyslexia, lots of misunderstood words and misunderstandings? What about those who can't get into college because they are still stuck at a seventh grade level, through no fault of their own? A lot of talent and potential is being wasted. With Study Technology, you can take education to a whole new level.
      It is being used secularly, here and in other countries.
      I would have struggled a lot less with my studies, mentally, with Study Technology.

    • patphatcat

      +Zachary James Short well, I wish I knew about Hubbard's Study Technology when I was in high school and college. It would have made my life a lot easier.

    • patphatcat

      Azul Casaca also, children of scientologists go to public school, colleges and universities. It is up to the parents. There are only 2 schools started by women, that I know of, that are schools that uses Hubbard's Study Technology, to educate students. One is in Virginia and the other is in Washington, D.C., so most scientologists can't send kids to a scientology school. A few kids are home schooled, using Study Technology, but it is the choice of the children and the parents how and where a child wants to be educated. I am sure you have met many scientologists and the children of scientologists going to public / private school and college, just like everyone else, but you are not aware of it.

    • patphatcat

    Scientology (and the way it manipulates people) is legitimately horrifying- those of you who are saying "well same with any other religion" need to do your reading, that is a false equivalency. However, what people neglect to mention is that Elisabeth Moss was raised in it and that her family are all members- when someone leaves the church, they are labeled as being "suppressive persons" and forbidden from sharing contact with any loved ones who are still involved, hence Nicole Kidman no longer having a relationship with the children she and Tom Cruise raised. I believe that Elisabeth Moss is producing and starring in this series as a means to speak in the only way she can; even if I'm wrong, do your research and have some compassion.

    • patphatcat
      patphatcat 7 месяцев назад

      Gavin Batker the you tube videos are not truthful. Leah Remini the actress who was kicked out of scientology organization was not truthful. May I suggest you google " talk to scientologist online" and get some facts. STAND league, is another way to talk to scientologists online.
      After they divorced, Nicole still had contact with her children. If I remember correctly, they spent time with her in Australia.

  • Mourning Glory

    WHY IS NOBODY TALKING ABOUT HOW SIMILAR TO FUNDAMENTALIST MUSLIM CULTURE THIS IS???? I cannot be the only person intelligent enough to make the obvious connection.
    People who try to compare Trump’s presidency to The Handmaid’s Tale sicken me, especially when they support Muslim culture, which is truly MUCH harsher on women. Full body hijabs, getting stoned for being raped, not given the option to leave the house without having a male family member with them, used only for reproductive reasons (yes, fundamentalist Muslim men DO have sex with young boys dressed as girls AND each other-I didn’t believe it either; most Americans are fed a whitewashed view of what REALLY goes down in terrorist-ultra-Muslim areas), female genital mutilation is common, even for so-called “liberal” Muslims in first-world countries as the parents will often take very young girls on “Holiday” in Europe to have this barbaric procedure done so their daughters can be considered clean and worthy of marriage, as many Muslim peoples believe a woman should not have any ability to feel sexual pleasure lest they cheat. But noooooo, PC leftist American media would NEVER admit to that.

    I read The Handmaid's Tale for English when I was in high school and became an instant fan of Margaret Atwood. I absolutely loved Elisabeth Moss in this show, and still do to an extent. I just recently learned about her involvement in Scientology. How can someone playing this role still uphold cult values in their real life? It goes against everything she believes in and fights for. I don't think I can ever look her the same way, it will be hard for me to believe any honesty her character portrays knowing it's all a sham compared to her true self.

    Her most telling comments were about her education. The reason she didn't go to school was not because her parents were musicians but because they were $cientologists. The Co$ does not educate their children about much other than the doctrines. They learn to read and write and do basic math but that's about it. No history, social studies etc. Children have no value in the "church" beyond their ability to work. To them, children are adults in little bodies (seriously) and are treated as such. Seems like you can get away with all sorts of crimes as long as it's part of your "religion."
