As a writer, I’ve kept a close watch of Netflix dramas, keeping an eye on plot and dialogue while imagining what the script might look like on my own iPad. I’m doing this because I have the burning hope that Liberty Island and Taliesen Nexus arise like Netflix to become a cultural/entertainment colossus on the side of freedom and the American experiment of government serving the people.

I’ve greatly enjoyed watching Narcos, and thought the PC in the story was less nauseating than most… Until the other night, watching the close of season 3.

This series, that I would have generously said was rather apolitical, suddenly took a disgraceful turn into true historical distortion. The distortion is a disgraceful diminishment of all the people in South America, and around the world, slaughtered for reasons of Leftist ideology when it worked to make their homeland over into a political prison.

The load-in-the-shorts gets particularly obscene in season 3, episode 6 (S3:E6): Here, conflicted hero DEA agent Pena (Pedro Pascal) captures the Cali cartel money launderer and wants to use the coke-sniffing blonde American wife to pressure him to testify. But the addict scofflaw wife disdains law and order and refuses. More, Netflix elaborates a script in which this drug-addicted floozie dresses down Agent Pena, devastating him with the charge that he is a “hypocrite.” Worse, Netflix makes Pena take this load of crap like a straw man, without a word in his own defense.

Were this my show, I would have reminded this floozy that she 1) destroys herself with her own coke addiction, 2) lowers the DNA health of any child she might want in the future, and the arc of their life too, 3) is married to a guy she knows is high in a drug cartel pushing a rightfully illegal, highly toxic product, 4) responsible for the deaths of, first, hundreds of thousands from gang violence, and 5) tens of thousands more from drug deaths, 6) and hundreds of thousands more whose lives are ruined by absolutely pointless addiction, and 7) millions whose brains and DNA are badly scarred from toxicity that 7) leads to huge healthcare costs from increased disease and impaired, premature aging, let alone the 8) gigantic national expenditures for both courts and 9) prisons.

“That’s just the already validated science stuff, lady,” my Pena would say incisively. “And the collective brain damage from tons of your drugs might very well be behind why our world is completely upside down with our kids thinking Socialism leads to Paradise while Venezuela is staring them in the face in column two!”

But in Netflix world, this chick is a heroine. And Pena underscores the moral accusation by offering back nothing but big, guilty puppy dog eyes.

How could anyone in their right mind be “conflicted” about this? Cocaine chews worm holes into the brain – literally. I’m not kidding.

I know. I’m a chiropractor, with friends in brain research.

Oh, but the upside-down morality of Netflix world only gets better:

In S3:E10, the cartel anticipates the DEA move against the money launderer, and kidnaps the wife and throws her for safekeeping into the clutches of FARC rebels deep in the jungle. Pena’s breathily earnest narration says that FARC is conducting “the longest political revolution in history”, and that early on they raised money by kidnap and ransom. (Indeed, of thousands of Columbians.) He does not tell us that these are bloodthirsty Commies with ties to Peru’s perversely violent Shining Path, nor does he mention the 115 million other poor innocent souls murdered by Communists worldwide since 1917. In fact, Pena is downright sympathetic to FARC.

Wait. It gets even better.

Later, in S3:E10, titled “Convivir”, Pena prepares a raid against FARC to rescue the wife. He enlists the help of the AUC, Autodefensa de Columbia. He does not mention that this large militia force formed in Columbia only in response to FARC atrocities. Lo and behold, Pena’s intimately soul-searching narration pins the thug badge not on FARC but on AUC—and, you’ll never guess—the United States, with the tag line “… their crimes against humanity, sponsored by Uncle Sam”.

In another scene, anti-Commie AUC commandos describe how the Communists escape raids by following rope lines down pathways in the dark, but if you find the lines then, the commandos say with glee, “rat-tat-tat-tat-tat! — it is a slaughter.” Pena here wipes his brow with suppressed humanitarian outrage at these cowboy allies of Uncle Same and their indiscriminate murder.

Wait: The genocidal Left is the victim? History’s most effective and murderous hate group? Don’t the 115 million count for anything with Netflix’s writers?

One last scene in this episode further encapsulates the moral absurdity around which Netflix has framed an otherwise excellent cop-n-robber series: Pena and the wife sit in the airport where the DEA will whisk her to the States for protection. The wife, rescued from her cartel kidnapping, sits stunned by the violence of the FARC raid. “You think you’re a hero,” she says in contempt to Pena. “For executing a bunch of farmers so that you could get my husband to testify for you?”

What, what, what, what? …A bunch of “farmers”? I guess Mao, Stalin, Ho Chi Minh and Pol Pot led a bunch of “farmers” too, at least in part. Little good that bucolic romanticism did for all the people who are no more.

In the end, a really well-done series leaves the viewer saddened by either the historical illiteracy at Netflix empire or their willingness to help gloss over any mention of the madness that has burned a deeper hole on this planet than any other single influence. It’s more than a shame that Netflix’s superb Narcosis complicit in the coverup of the one phenomenon that removed more loved ones from this earth not only than even World War Two (72 million), not only World War One (47 million), but almost both of them combined.
