Finally figured out Lost

Post by whir »

Lost is simply an analogue for the Bush administration:

Jacob = George W. Bush

Lighthouse = Patriot Act (spying on people for the greater good)

Others = Christian conservative base (Jacob secretly has contempt for Others much like W. for his base, fact)

Smokey = Terrorism (so easy this all must be intentional)

Island = USA, USA, USA! (A place where the miracle of modern democracy and freedom happens)

DHARMA = Liberals (A bunch of elitist hippie scientists trying to 'save the world' with science)

Sonic Fence = Free speech zones (DHARMA is allowed to have their 'opinions' and will not be killed if they stay inside)

But Bush was not the good guy like Jacob is.

Speaking of Bush, during Season 2 there was this prevalent theory among circles of Lost fans that Season 2 Jack was supposed to be a George Bush standin. I don't know if that was intentional on the show's part but it certainly seems to fit.
