The Truth About “The X-Files”

The Truth About “The X-Files”

There have always been hints that the worldview of "The X-Files" is far closer to paleoconservatism than is generally found in anything emanating from Hollywood. Sam Francis, a avid "X-Files" fan had always been put off by the liberal plot lines he found in other fine examples of television science fiction, such as the “Twilight Zone” or the original “Star Trek.” Unlike those series, “The X-Files” had a certain conservative sensibility, and had not a trace utopia or even progress in the human condition. It’s telling that the first X-Files movie bore the reactionary title “Fight the Future.” Rather than guiding the way to a bright future, Mulder and Scully face the same fundamental problems human beings have always faced, including the persistence of evil.
