Twilight Zone Marathon On The Syfy Channel WooHoo!!! Happy Camper :D The Obsolete Man. This Is My #1 Favorite Twilight Zone Episode :)

FYI my fellow Twilight Zone lovers! The Syfy channel is having a Twilight Zone marathon today until 5am tomorrow! WooHoo! I am in Twilight Zone HEAVEN. :D

UPDATE 1/1/2014: I thought the TZ marathon ended at 5am this morning. That's what the TW cable guide showed yesterday. But it's still going all day today!!! w00t!

The Obsolete Man is my #1 favorite Twilight Zone episode :)

Rod Serling intro: "You walk into this room at your own risk. Because it leads to the future. Not a future that will be, but one that might be. This is not a new world. It is simply an extension of what began in the old one. It has patterned itself after every dictator who has ever planted the ripping imprint of a boot on the pages of history since the beginning of time. It has refinements, technological advances and a more sophisticated approach to the destruction of human freedom. But like every one of the super States that preceeded it, it has one iron rule, LOGIC is an enemy and TRUTH is a menace."

Rod Serling closing statement: "The Chancellor, the late Chancellor was only partly correct. He was obsolete. But so was the State, the Entity he worshipped. Any State, any Entity, any Ideology that FAILS to recognize the worth, the dignity, the rights of man, that State is obsolete. A case to be filed under M for MANKIND in the Twilight Zone.
This United Nations quote I shared with you above is an example of what Rod Serling was describing.
