The Official Story



The Tetragrammaton Council of Libria is the fascist government from the 2002 movie Equilibrium.

Following a catastrophic third World War, Libria emerged as a new society from the ashes. Concluding that human emotion was the root cause of all conflict, the Librian government (led by a group known as the Tetragrammaton Council) outlawed emotional stimulation. This entailed forcing the populace to take a drug that stunted their emotions and also seeking out and destroying all emotionally stimulating material, such as art, music, books, and even furniture and live animals.

Law and Order are enforced by police officers known as “the Sweepers” and are identified by their ominous black motorcycle helmets and a group known as the Grammaton Clerics, masters of the Gun-Fu fighting style “Gun-Kata”. The Clerics are the elite of Libria’s military and police forces and their main goal is to eradicate suspected sense offenders and resistance members. 

The country’s government ultimately collapses thanks to the efforts of the movie’s protagonist, a rogue cleric named John Preston who after missing one of his daily injections begins feeling emotions again and realizes that the ways of Libria are wrong.

The movie ends with the resistance movement that had been formed in response to Libria’s brutality destroying the factories manufacturing the drug Prozium and killing the Libria soldiers as at last freedom returns to the populace.


“Father” (Vice-Counsel DuPont)

Vice-Counsel DuPont is the main antagonist in the 2002 film Equilibrium. Under the rule of a dictator who is simply dubbed “Father”, DuPont is the nominal second-in-command of Libria, a totalitarian police state whose goal is to eradicate all the human emotions using a drug named “Prozium II”. His title is “Vice-Counsel”, but it is later revealed that he is the de facto dictator of Libria.

He was portrayed by Angus MacFadyen, who also played Lord Komodo in Warriors of Virtue, and Nicholas Quinn in Chuck. MacFayden is also known for portraying Jeff Denlon in the Saw horror series.


Following a Third World War, a city-state named Libria was formed with the intention of eradicating all human emotions, as this is believed to be the root cause of all human conflict. The state is governed by the Tetragrammaton Council who is “led” by a Big Brother-esque public figure known only as ‘Father’, and DuPont serves as a high ranking official within the council. Father encourages people to suppress their emotions by taking daily injections of a chemical known as Prozium, and any form of art, music or literature is illegal and incinerated on sight.

The Tetragrammaton Council employs Sweepers to enforce the law and Grammaton Clerics to hunt down and expose ‘Sense Offenders’, people who are feeling. One particular cleric, named John Preston, eventually ceases his dose of Prozium, after accidentally breaking a vial of it, and begins to feel emotion himself. DuPont tells Preston that there is a traitor amongst the Clerics and dispatches Preston to find and expose them, as well as contact a resistance group known as the ‘Underground’ and bring them before Father and the Council.

After Preston becomes involved with the resistance group and they persuade him to try and assassinate Father in order to begin a revolution. Seeing as Father never grants an audience to anyone, Preston realizes that the only way to get close to him would be if he arrested the resistance and brought them to him, to which the resistance leader agrees. However, Preston’s new partner, Cleric Andrew Brandt, discovers that he is feeling and takes him to DuPont, telling him that Preston is the traitor he’s been looking for. Preston manages to trick DuPont into believing that Brandt is actually the traitor, and DuPont sends him away to be executed. Preston asks DuPont if he can meet with Father seeing as he is the one who has found and captured the resistance, and DuPont accepts his request.

Later, Preston is taken to meet Father but discovers that Brandt is still alive, having been used by DuPont as a ruse to expose Preston as the true traitor. It is also revealed that DuPont is actually Father, as the real Father had died years ago and the Council had elected him to continue his legacy. Before DuPont’s guards can seize him, Preston kills them all in a fierce firefight and eventually reaches DuPont’s office. He notices that the room is filled with intricate artwork and furniture and realizes that DuPont is himself feeling and never takes Prozium. DuPont taunts Preston, asking how he feels now that he has exposed the resistance and sent them all to their deaths, but Preston quickly kills the last few bodyguards with a samurai sword. DuPont sends Brandt to attack Preston but he kills him too by slicing his face off. Finally, DuPont picks up a gun and tries to shoot Preston, but Preston grabs another gun lying nearby and the pair engages in a ‘gun kata’ battle. Preston gains the upper hand and holds DuPont at gunpoint, but DuPont tries to convince Preston to spare him by asking if he could live with the guilt of killing someone who is ‘feeling’ and knows how beautiful life is. Preston replies by telling him that he’d gladly pay the price and shoots DuPont in the chest, killing him.


What Makes Him Pure Evil?

  • Enslaved humanity into a dystopia by eradicating human emotions.
  • Massacred at least thousands of people for refusing to take the drug (a term known as “Sense Offense”) despite willfully and knowingly refusing to take the drug himself, making him a hypocrite of the worst kind.
  • Impersonated Father so he can rule the world and lead the eradication of human emotions.
  • When Preston told DuPont about his wife’s death, DuPont mocked his inability to grief by asking him how he feels.
  • Used Preston as a pawn to capture The Resistance while also taunting him about it.
  • Although he claimed to be making peace with the eradication of human emotions, he is far past it because of his atrocities to humanity and his abuse of the law.
  • When he begged Preston for mercy upon defeat, it was obviously a ploy so he could gain the upper hand, showing he has no sportsmanship or fairness in combat despite how he trained the clerics with Gun Kata. Furthermore, he assumed that Preston wouldn’t kill him for being a Sense Offender like him even though DuPont himself executed millions of Sense Offenders and is also responsible for the death of Preston’s wife.
  • Unlike Father, who only wanted to prevent war and believed human emotions was the cause of it, DuPont is fully capable of understanding right from wrong, but chose intentionally to eradicate human emotions and murder anyone who opposes this law for his own benefit.
  • Despite being a Sense Offender, DuPont is heartless at his very core and to the point where he is remorseless for his crimes and is taken completely seriously, making him the worst human being with or without emotions.

The Truth


Predictive Programming is the concept whereby conspirators plan a false flag operation, they hide references to it in the popular media before the atrocity takes place; when the event occurs, the public has softened up, and therefore passively accepts it rather than offering resistance or opposition.


The New World Order (NWO) is a conspiracy theory which hypothesizes a secretly emerging totalitarian world government. The common theme in conspiracy theories about a New World Order is that a secretive power elite with a globalist agenda is conspiring to eventually rule the world through an authoritarian world government—which will replace sovereign nation-states—and an all-encompassing propaganda whose ideology hails the establishment of the New World Order as the culmination of history’s progress. Many influential historical and contemporary figures have therefore been alleged to be part of a cabal that operates through many front organizations to orchestrate significant political and financial events, ranging from causing systemic crises to pushing through controversial policies, at both national and international levels, as steps in an ongoing plot to achieve world domination.

A false flag is a covert operation designed to deceive; the deception creates the appearance of a particular party, group, or nation being responsible for some activity, disguising the actual source of responsibility.
