The conflict of Forcefury is both the conflict of the individual and the conflict of the individual in society. Perhaps the greatest (or at least most conspicuous) national conflict in our time is the United States of America. Division that has existed for years within the United States has become incredibly obvious since the election of failed businessman turned reality television star turned politician Donald Trump. In Forcefury, Donald Trump is represented by President Joe. Unlike Trump, President Joe has realized his xenophobic dream of erecting a wall on the border. The location of the wall is never specified. Indeed, the location is irrelevant because the wall has been erected as an ineffectual means to prevent the immigration of illegal aliens (from outer space). Within the fictitious United States of Forcefury, the wall exists as a symbolic "fu" from the Republicans to the Liberal Democrats. Within the context of the film, the wall represents division. The division is best characterized by Brick Forcefury when he disparages the desert from which the alien came by comparing it to the so-called "American oasis". This attitude (as opposed to "the grass is greener") assumes the worst of the unknown other. Although it is applied to the alien outsider, it may also be applied to the political opposition (frequently disparaged as the "Liberal Agenda"). It is this attitude that has contributed to the politically divisive climate of our time (in America and elsewhere). From Brick Forcefury's shallow criticism of the left, identity politics, etc..., and his exaggerated fear/hatred of the unknown other (reminiscent of Fox News and Info Wars) the film approaches an understanding of why the right has dismissed the left (and, to some extent, vice versa). The individual conflict is explored through Brick Forcefury. As a border patrol officer working with another man (his partner named Partner), Brick is blissfully unaware of any conflict. Though he is reprimanded by his superior, Brick succeeds at insulating himself from any consequences. It's not until his male partner is replaced by a woman (his new partner named New Partner) that Brick's inner-conflict becomes evident. The conflict may therefore be interpreted as a failure to integrate the male and female aspects of his psyche (a failure worth exploring as it is common among those who align masculinity with strength, femininity with weakness). Aside from disparaging remarks about women, Brick's inner-conflict is obvious when he is asked to attend group therapy. Perceiving group-therapy to put him in touch with his feelings (feelings that put him in touch with the feminine aspect of his psyche), Brick would sooner castrate himself. The extremity of his response (pun intended) demonstrates that he values constructed gender above biological sexual orientation. Later, he is unable to recognize the gender of New Partner (repeatedly referring to her as a man). In their efforts to help, both Wife (named Wife though she may not actually be his wife) and the Magician (not actually a magician) subject Brick to various chores (chores that would be subjected to a woman in a gender-normative context). In both cases, Brick is reluctant. His reluctance may be read as the resistance of the male aspect of his psyche, perceiving a threat to its supremacy. Like the gender politics of our time, a certain demographic of men feel entitled to their supremacy (patriarchy), and mis-interpret the outcry for gender equality as the arrival of female supremacy (matriarchy). In the end, Brick's inner-conflict is the conflict of intersectional politics. He cannot integrate the male and female aspects of his psyche and do justice to the race politics threatening the aliens from outer space. Stuck between a rock and a hard-place, Brick invents a new unknown other. But by scapegoating the new unknown other, derivative of a past unknown other, Brick dooms himself (and America) to repeat past atrocities.
