"Truth is so obscure in these times, and falsehood so established, that, unless we love the truth, we cannot know it."|
It's absurd to think that the capitalist cabal and its puppets that run the country could literally dictate reality to people--right?1. Reality is what the people in power say it is.
- What about the 2016 election? The reality is that Trump stole the election.
- What about the 2000 election? The reality was that Gore won Florida and the election. The false reality was dictated by the criminal behavior of Jeb Bush, Katherine Harris, and the U.S. Supreme Court. For the first time in U.S. history we had an appointed president, not an elected one. The reality was that the cabal perpetrated a coup d'état.
- What about 9/11? The reality is that we don't know who perpetrated that atrocity. The false reality was dictated by the Bush junta who said it was Muslim terrorists acting alone. It's very likely that the Bush junta was complicit in 9/11.
- What was the reality of Iraq? Bush claimed that Iraq had weapons of mass destruction and posed an immediate threat to American security. The reality was that Iraq had no WMD--and later even the Bush junta had to admit it. The reality is that Bush and his administration lied that there were weapons of mass destruction--and the lie became the counterfeit reality.
- What about the lies that Social Security is in trouble? The reality is that the Social Security System (SSS) runs at a surplus of $100-$120 billion annually and will continue to do so throughout the twenty-first century! The cabal and its Wall Street supporters are lying that Social Security is in trouble and needs an immediate fix. The reality is that the cabal's stock-broker con artists want to loot Social Security. No amount of lying can change that reality.
- What about the 2008 election? It was claimed that the nation had voted for a progressive candidate--Barack Obama--who would move away from the corruption and oppression of the Bush II junta. The reality is that Obama was a total cabal puppet who continued to extend the fascist, police-state policies of Bush II (and all Presidents since the assassination of JFK).
"Lanny Budd talked with officials, both military and civilian, about the curious Soviet practice of telling the most barefaced and obvious lies and maintaining them in spite of any facts offered in rebuttal. Was it an assertion of their ego, that truth was whatever they chose to make it? Was it a consequence of their denial of the existence of any moral law? Or was it just an expression of their contempt for their opponents? They would tell you a lie and then laugh in your face--not because they thought you believed it but because you were foolish enough not to understand that they were superior to both the truth and you. Because you were foolish enough to believe that there was actually any such thing as truth in the world! Because you were inferiors, doomed to early extinction, and it didn't matter in the least what you believed about anything! That was really the way they felt, and lying to you was part of the process of your extermination. They, the new master class, the future possessors and rulers of the world, yielded to nothing--not even the truth!" Upton Sinclair, The Return of Lanny Budd, 1953
This phenomenon of dictating reality applies to all forms of despotism: Italian fascism, Nazism, Communism, Zionism, or Capitalism
A "big lie" is defined as "the intentional distortion of the truth, especially for political or official purposes." This tactic of deceiving a country's citizens was used by Adolph Hitler--and now by whatever junta the cabal puts into power."The great mass of people will more easily fall victim to a big lie than to a small one."
Adolf Hitler (1889-1945), Mein Kampf
How is it that the Trump junta LIE and so many Americans believe them?
- The minds of many Americans have been sytematically and deliberately decimated to the point that they can no longer tell the difference between truth and lies.
- There are no longer any mainstream objective news media to investigate what is really happening and report on lies our leaders are telling us and criminal activities they perpetrate.
- Many Americans simply don't care to know what's happening to them or their country.
- Many Americans believe the cabal lies because they are possessed by a reactionary ideology.
- The sophisticated mind-control techniques used by cabal operatives literally "make" many Americans believe whatever they want them to believe.
Will Americans Wake Up or Sleep to Their Death?
"The essential problem is that Americans have been lying to themselves for so many years now that they are completely incapable of telling the difference between the rather frightening truth and their mythological view of America. The roots of the problem go back to the 1930's, but the real problems began right after the Second World War, when the American government came under the control of the group of thugs who still run the country. There has been a carefully planned program of complete domination of all sources of information through total media control, the creation of the 'think tank' system to manufacture policy, the establishment of entrepreneurial right wing religion as a method of political control, the use of political contributions to buy politicians, and, if all else fails, simple violence. It is now a country where anyone who could do good is marginalized or assassinated, and changes in government are at least as likely to occur by coup d'etat than by the operation of democracy. There is no longer even the necessity to hide the fact that the country is run entirely for the benefit of certain large pools of capital. The essential lies that Americans tell themselves, which mainly have to do with class structure and, even at this late date, race, infect every major political issue in the country - crime and the incarceration industry, health care, the 'war on drugs', education, immigration including the racist response to 9-11, the environment, poverty and the extraordinary creation of what is really a new caste system consisting of a permanent underclass (something that has happened, unnoticed, only in the last few years), and even American foreign policy. Each year since around the time of Sinclair's broadcast [Gordon Sinclair's famous broadcast from radio station CFRB in Toronto in 1973] the situation has gotten worse, but lately the rate of deterioration appears to be increasing rapidly. Things have gotten so bad that the government was fronted by a retarded (and I use that word in a technical sense) clown, who everyone treated as if he were a real President (the worst lie to yourself is when you have to pretend that the obvious idiot who leads you is entitled to do so). The lies are so deeply ingrained into American thought that the vast majority of the population apparently is incapable of seeing that there is anything wrong, meaning that there is no possibility of change."
The Case of the Guilty Victim
Along with the loss of lives that the cabal's lies result in, there is also the elemental attack against the very framework of humankind's conception of reality that the cabal is perpetrating. To make this easier to understand, let's bring it into closer focus through this situational example.
Suppose that you are a single woman who has been raped by a thug connected to organized crime. Following this ordeal, you receive a number of threats on the telephone that you will be killed if you report the rape or prosecute the offender.
Because you are afraid to prosecute--or even show up in court--a warped judge lets your offender go free and puts you in jail, lecturing you about attacking the dignity of his court. You finally decide to bring charges and testify against your attacker. You're still afraid to appear in court, but the judge has forced you to endanger your life in this way.
You appear in the intimidating courtroom, fearing for your life. Then you realize that you're going to have to convince a jury of twelve people that you were the victim of rape--when your attacker will be telling them all kinds of lies about you.
The criminal defense attorney representing the Mafia thug who raped you tells the jury that you are a "woman with loose morals who sleeps around" and that "the so-called rape was entirely consensual." "In fact," the defense lawyer lies, "she came on to my client and he finally gave in to her seductions."
As the defense lawyer brings in the three men with whom you've had sexual relations within the past ten years, you realize that the jury is beginning to picture you as some kind of scarlet woman of easy virtue who consorts with thugs. You realize the horror of people lying about you, deliberately distorting your reality.
You can now see what an evil it is for a defense attorney--or an entire political regime--to lie and distort reality for their own purposes. You now feel the horror of the attack against reason that the cabal is perpetrating. Unless you can depend on your jurors to use reason instead of emotion--as the crooked defense lawyer is encouraging--you will have no chance for justice.
You realize the extraordinary importance of people being able to think critically and basing their judgments on evidence. It's clear that deliberately destroying people's ability to reason is turning many into unthinking beasts.
"We compel [the members of the jury] to hear both sides before casting their vote. We compel them to hear those two sides according to some rational rule of evidence and advocacy; and then, having taken these precautions, we take the further precaution of having the evidence summarized by an expert in the shape of the judge, who shows its relation to the law. Only then have we some hope that their decision may be broadly a sound one."
N. Angell. The Public Mind
The murderous cabal is systematically REDEFINING REALITY.
2. Reality DOES NOT INCLUDE what the people in power say it does not include and we shouldn't look at anything they say isn't included in reality.
4. Reality as defined by those in power MUST BE ACCEPTED by those deemed patriotic citizens.
5 . America continues to be described as a democracy, when in fact it has become a fascist dictatorship.
The U.S. had been moving toward a total military dictatorship since about 1913; but in 2012 the final nail in the coffin of democracy and justice was hammered into place with the passage of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA)!
NDAA allows American citizens to be arrested, imprisoned, and tortured by the U.S. military--without due process of any kind!
"Truth has to be repeated constantly, because Error also is being preached all the time, and not just by a few, but by the multitude. In the Press and Encyclopaedias, in Schools and Universities, everywhere Error holds sway, feeling happy and comfortable in the knowledge of having Majority on its side." |
Turning People Into Sub-Humans
What's occurring at present is no mere "paradigm shift" 1 or new approach to politics; it is a fundamental restructuring of human nature. The ordinary world is currently populated almost entirely by sub-humans. 2
The deranged cabal which now rules the political-economic systems throughout the world delude themselves into believing that they can destroy people's minds and still have a functioning civilization. Their indiscriminate destruction of mental and social capabilities is inevitably leading to the breakdown of their world.
The cabal represents the modern Faust, the black magician who for the price of his damned soul, believes he obtains a supreme ascendancy over a world that is in fact a devastated wasteland.
What is the wise response to the collapse of our everyday world? We certainly do not want to bury our heads in the sands of indifference or ignorance, like so many who are now acting like mental ostriches. We can't escape into a fantasy realm, pretending that the ordinary world doesn't exist. At the same time we don't want to become so enamored of the daily horrors of the ordinary world that we allow their negative energy to create fear and hatred in us.
We must recognize that the present political-economic-religious-social reality is merely a temporary scene in a vast drama being played out on Reality's eternal stage, that humankind's experience within history is being used to bring about its spiritual evolution.
If the current mindless rulers delude themselves into believing that they control human life and human destiny, we are able to see through this chimera. We do not have to be taken in by their distortion of Reality. We can retain our own humanness, our ability to understand and our capacity to care for one another in the face of the dog-eat-dog ideology of the current representatives of Mammon.
While living active lives in the ordinary world, we can gain a full understanding of its hidden evils beyond the "redefinitions" of reality the rulers try to foist on us. We can locate our primary being in a higher understanding, using the artifacts of advanced minds, past and present, for our own advance.
Turning and turning in the widening gyre
The falcon cannot hear the falconer;
Things fall apart; the center cannot hold;
Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,
and everywhere, the ceremony of innocence is lost
The best lack all conviction;
while the worst, are full of passionate intensity.
What rough Beast, its hour come round at last,
slouches towards Bethlehem to be born.
From W. B. Yeats, "The Second Coming"
1 Paradigm shift: a change from one way of thinking to another; first discussed by Thomas Kuhn in his 1962 book The Structure of Scientific Revolution
2 I am using this term only in a descriptive manner, referring to certain people as sub-human who have lost the ability to think critically, who possess no desire to understand the truth, and who have no compassion for their fellow-humans. Since those and other qualities are essential in true humans, their absence from these people renders them sub-human.
