"The Unlisted" - Netflix's Surprisingly Subversive Kids' Show

Teens vs. Technocrats

Could a Netflix show aimed at 12 to 17 year-olds inadvertently teach kids to beware of globalist technocrats and biomedical statists? "The Unlisted" suggests that the answer is yes!

Released in 2019, "The Unlisted" (and its accompanying book series) follows a group of young Australian teens as they struggle against "The Infinity Group" and its "Global Child Initiative" program, which sends doctors to schools in order to implant subdermal microchips into children. Disguised as a dental "gum treatment," this procedure is mandatory for all students. Those who refuse to comply are hunted down by Infinity Group agents and forcibly implanted.

A transhumanist's wet dream, these chips endow the children with enhanced strength and memory, seemingly alter their brain chemistry to make them more competitive and ruthless, and allow for constant surveillance and full remote control of their bodies by the Infinity Group.

Both the TV show and book series were written and produced by Justine Flynn, who - being an Australian citizen - has kept mum on whether the resemblance between the agenda of The Infinity Group and that of the World Economic Forum is coincidental or not. Either way, "The Unlisted" provides a golden opportunity for parents to start introducing important concepts to their children in a non-threatening way. Just a few examples of questions raised by the show include:

  • Why would evil people pretend to be good, and act as if they're doing things to help you?
  • Is it okay for doctors to do things to you without explaining what they're doing, or getting your parents' permission?
  • How would you feel if a company or the government wanted to track where you were all the time?
  • When the people in charge tell you to do something wrong, what should you do?

It's rare to find children's entertainment that encourages skepticism of authority, and even more unusual to see a program that specifically calls out surveillance, transhumanism, and biomedical experimentation as things to watch out for. Given the events that quickly followed the release of "The Unlisted" (particularly in Australia), it is unsurprising that the show was cancelled before its second season. It may have had the wrong message for the powers-that-be, but it has the right message for parents who want to encourage their children to think for themselves, and to do what's right rather than what they're told.
