    People go to the movies as it is an escape from reality. This is exactly what Star Wars does, I don't think its going to effect TFA at all.

    Exactly. Economic downturns have a tendency to help escape films. Movies are still a relatively cheap form of entertainment. People will cut vacations, concerts, sporting events and expensive activities like that. But a movie ticket will usually be doable except for the most impacted. And those who can afford it will want and need escape more than ever.

    Remember that Avatar came out just after the peak of the 2008 recession, and it did just fine.

    Not exactly TFA related but if the economy were to collapse, that would mean the end (before the beginning) of any Star Wars Land at WDW or Disneyland and that would upset me...

    Take the blue pill then and leave. These aren't from "conspiracy sites", these are legit government files that are now undisclosed to the public that you can read about in libraries and basic information sites like Wikipedia. Check it out (while we still can before internet restrictions kick in like in China & Korea now that we're living under the Trans Pacific Partnership) or remain in blissful ignorance while you can. Bad people have been in power and tried to hijack our country as well as other nations for a long time -- look at the Business Plot of the 1930s, where Prescott Bush, George Bush's grandfather, who worked for the world bankers who funded Adolf Hitler, along with the insane eugenics movement that started here in the states that inspired Hitler, came to General Smedley Butler and wanted him to lead a massive group of soldiers to overthrow the american government and President Roosevelt and turn us into a fascist state like they had Hitler do at the time. Fortunately, General Smedley Butler, a distinguished World War 1 marine, was an honest, brave man, and knew what a farce war was, and exposed the traitorous plot. Unfortunately though, Prescott Bush and the Bush family, as well as the rest of the criminal elite, continued their plans other ways, and infiltrated the USA with the CIA, which George Bush Jr ran for years before becoming president, unfortunately, the Bushes and their good friends the Clintons as well as the other elitists are still in power today, as are the Nazi eugenecists who came back over here in Operation Paper Clip after World War 2 -- people who worked at concentration camps, war criminals who were allowed to continue their work in eugenics as the pharmaceutical company, legal drug pushers. And the American Birth Control Society, which became Planned Parenthood. All of this information is available and verifiable for those who are not afraid to make the effort and look. They want a population under 500 million, and then even lower than that (see the Georgia Guidestones), which means they have to eliminate over 6 billion people, which they're trying to do via soft kill techniques in things like food (GMO), water (fluoride), and even air (chemtrails), and legal drugs (prescriptions). Their goal is to dumb us down and make us weak. Testosterone has been on a 1% annual decline since the 80s. Autism rates have skyrocketed from being 1 in every 2,800 thirty years ago to being one in 50 now, and by 2025 they want it to be every 1 in 3. They want men and women to not know how to be men and women anymore, which we see from the psychological and sexual problems people have now all the way down to the social engineering of trying to ban terms like men and women in schools because they're "offensive", and remove boys and girls clothing sections in stores for "gender neutral purple", removal of men and women bathrooms, and teach teachers to refer to children as purple penguins because it's non offensive (see school in Dakota). Radical third wave feminism has shot itself in the foot by telling men that in order to attract a girl they must act like a girl, and the "nice guys" do this and wonder why it doesn't work, women complain there are no real men, and only go after the "bad boys" and "jerks" because they're the only ones who at least demonstrate masculinity in at some way, we are told that the only time it is okay to be a man is if you are a woman in this country and vice versa. More and more women are putting their maternal instincts towards animals and other things, becoming the cat lady stereotype because the sexes are being destroyed as not to create more families and functioning people. And the fact that so many people are just so complacent with it lets me know the brainwashing is working. Bread and circus like gladitorial times -- as long as people are entertained, they won't notice their fenceless prison. Much more Brave New World than 1984 at the moment, but lucky us cuz we get both. Meanwhile people strike because they aren't getting paid enough, and the elite creates more jobs, but give them to robots (see McDonalds strike recently -- all replaced by machines). It used to be that when a machine replaced your physical work, you could do brain work and be paid for it, educate yourself and get higher pay, now the robots are able to thing for us, too. We are more technologically advanced than we've ever been, yet we don't know how any of it works -- oh sure, we can use it, but we don't know why it does what it does. It's a mystery to most of us. The psychotic elites want to bond with machines, while replacing and subduing humans with them -- not saying bonding with machines will work, but that's what they believe.

    And one of the key messages of Star Wars is to he against the machine, the faith in man over technology, Luke switches off his targeting computer and blows up the Death Stat with his eyes closed, on faith. I think Lucas, in some small way, may have been trying to warn us. He's rich, he's probably got connections.... small wonder that the prequels are about an evil society seeking to usurp a Republic, fund both sides of an engineered war to cause a Republic to crumble from within (as they always do), and create an Empire for him to control. There have been many empires throughout human history, many fascist states, but only a handful of truly free societies in our human history. The freedoms that Americans have experienced is not the world norm in this regard.

    While that is true, this collapse will be the end of the american dollar as we know it, when it eventually happens sooner or later, so no amount of money saved will be worth anything because the currency will be dead.


    Although I'm sure I'd have bigger things to worry about if this happens, perhaps I can preorder tickets NOW while money is still good instead of waiting until it isn't to buy them....hmm....

    Now I just need to find out if they're even on sale this early.

    The other thing too is that unlike the 1930s, people are a LOT less self reliant today, which means things will be a hundred times worse than what the Depression was. Consider, 7 years ago we had the Stock Market hiccup in '08. 7 years before that, 9/11. Always in September with this stuff, always 7 years. Do the math and take it back. These elitists follow a cult code for all of this. It's insane. But September is coming up, and it's been 7 years...and I hope I'm wrong. I would love nothing more than to look back at these posts and be ridiculed for them and laugh, but I won't laugh because I will be glad I took precaution anyway.
