Leave the World Behind: Just a Movie or a Dark Hint About the Future from President Obama?

The movie is based on a book of the same name by Rumaan Alam, which has pretty mixed reviews. (I'm going to read it, though – I feel like I have to now.)

There are some interesting points of discussion, especially when you consider that the Obamas – yep, those Obamas – were executive producers of the flick.

Wait…President Obama was part of this? Are there secret messages?
Being a producer wasn't the only involvement – the former president was also involved creatively. Director Sam Esmail explained to

"Because President Obama is such a movie lover, he really focused his notes on trying to cinematically portray what was in the book in a really interesting way. The book was on his reading list, it's one of his favorites, and he really wanted to do justice by the book and this theme about mistrust and this being a cautionary tale about what could happen if we don't have that community or bond that holds us together," the director explained. "So he really gave notes with regards to character, empathy, and also the disaster elements. It was really across the board. And again, it was all in pursuit of making it into a good movie. That was his main focus."

According to Esmail, there are no conspiracies here except the ones that already existed in the plot of the movie.

"I think the silly thing about the whole thing is President Obama really came on a couple of months before we started shooting, so the script had basically been written and done. He obviously gave notes on the script, but the bones of the story and the sequences were already written. I would just say they're pretty wrong in terms of his signaling. It had nothing to do with that."

Hmmm…it does make one wonder, though. How could it not? We've been subjected to predictive programming for years, and here we are, feeling like we're right on the verge of the end of the world, and then we're supposed to put away our tinfoil? The former president, who would know EVERYTHING about shady cabals and disaster protocols and how the American public could be manipulated, is just into cool fiction?


From a prepper perspective…

There are hints of prepper things and conspiracies throughout the movie but this stuff wasn't very satisfying. The only real prepper we meet is Danny, the guy Amanda saw...
