Hypothesis on government s reactions about 2012

Hypothesis on government’s reactions about 2012

The government knows a lot about the 2012 Doomsday

That gives politics something big to worry about

To avoid panic, suicides...

(example: theft, contraction of credit, abuses),

“Two teenagers said they didn't want to see the end of the world so they were thinking of ending their lives.”

Anaïs Cordier

2012 movie instrument of censorship or business

2012 movie : Instrument of censorship or business?

To reassure people by the fiction

Interrogation is a business to make money

Morality of the movie:

Money can buy your life
