Let me say right up front that my bigoted self hasn’t seen the movie Frozen, but that I feel I can say a few words about it anyway. I am reading and commenting on some quotes in a post by someone who has seen it, Disney’s ‘Frozen’ conspiracy theories written May 31, 2014., called
I suppose the image is from the movie … Masonic Compass?
He takes us right to the core of the movie and if the movie hangs on this then we don’t want our kids watching it. He says that the following song provided the inspiration that makes the film special. Well it’s not him saying it. He quotes PasadenaNews.com, as saying,
For the story to work, the filmmakers felt they needed to find a way to thaw out Elsa’s character. That was helped along by songs composed by Robert Lopez, known for his work on “Avenue Q” and “The Book of Mormon,” and his wife, Kristen Anderson-Lopez.
“Up until then, Elsa was pretty much a straightforward villain,” says Lee. “We wanted to know more about her, what she would be like if she could be herself without fear. After that, she was much more complex, more interesting and sympathetic.”
The change required Lee to do some rewriting, which she was happy to do.
“Everything now hangs on the theme of the power of love versus the power of fear,” she said.
They re-wrote the movie around the songs. The ideas in the songs are its heart and soul. They provide the pivotal concepts that the movie expresses, which it casts as the tension between love and fear.
But how does it define these? Here are the lyrics to the song, Let it Go:
Couldn’t keep it in, Heaven knows I tried.
Don’t let them in, don’t let them see.
Be the good girl you always have to be.
Conceal, don’t feel, don’t let them know.
Well, now they know!
Let it go, let it go!
Can’t hold it back any more.
Let it go, let it go!
Turn away and slam the door.
And the fears that once controlled me, can’t get to me at all
It’s time to see what I can do,
to test the limits and break through.
No right, no wrong, no rules for me.
This provides the context for what Frozen means by love and fear. It is backwards and it is dangerous and it is harmful. The song starts out with the poor little girl’s feelings all pent up by “them”. Well, who could “they” be? Oh, I know. They are the neighborhood boys throwing pebbles at the window at night inviting the girls to let go of their inhibitions, take a ride, and … Oh! Wait! That’s not it. That’s the opposite message. No, “them” are the parents – the people, if this were the real world, who love their children with proper parental love and when they say “no” to them it is to prevent them from coming to harm.
Nope. This song and this movie, to make a long essay short, is not about love. It is promoting rebellion and calling it love. The last line of the song says it all. “No right, no wrong, no rules for me. I’m free!” This had might as well be quoting Aleister Crowley in so many words. “Do as thou wilt shall be the whole of the law.” This is the teaching of the occult. This is not love but the unbridled selfishness of the will, and it leads to destruction.
And this song and these ideas are not incidental to the movie, but they are at its core as the writers themselves said. These ideas are what makes the movie a “come back for more” experience. It is criminal to inject these ideas by subliminal means (a movie is entertainment, not rational argumentation) all wrapped up in the beauteous glow of an animated fantasy world, to inject these ideas into the unsuspecting and trusting souls of young innocent children. But that’s what Disney is all about.
