LISA RENEE: “Weaponizing Narratives”

“This is an important part of Psychological Warfare, and mostly it is designed to confuse people into webs of disinformation and then get people to spread the disinformation as facts or made into a belief system. For a moment let us break that down. Weaponizing Narratives is how intelligentsia works to undermine a community of people, in which the attackers want to derail the truth and to spin people off into false and made up narratives that are pure deceptions, manipulations and Gaslighting tactics. Then they put unscrupulous people on the payroll to spread disinformation stories, spread it all over the internet, and get gullible and unaware people in the group or movement to believe it and spread these deceptions in their own communities, so more of the public believe that the deception narrative it is a real and true fact, when it is really a made up lie designed to derail the group of people that believe it. Essentially what this means is we have to use common sense, Critical Thinking and see if the information passes our bullshit meter, and if we stop long enough to get quiet and then deeply feel into the information, many times we can get many intuitive impressions about it that helps us discern if this is a weaponized narrative or manipulation-deception signature.”

Transcript – We live during a time where there is a weaponization of narratives, and no one is immune to this type of false information targeting. To weaponize a narrative is to gain control over how people think, what they believe to be true, and to control their perception in the process of delivering them disinformation that is designed to weaken them and weaken their defenses. Why do the Controllers want you weakened? Reflect on that. What really weakens you emotionally and mentally, and your ability to discern the truth and make informed decisions for yourself that empower and support your spiritual strength, that which is needed to actualize your purpose in the world? The number one weakening tactic used by those leaders controlled by Thothian hijack that generate Propaganda is to get you to believe a lie as a truth. If you believe lies you are being told your perception, your beliefs and your behaviors will be fully controlled, your spiritual guidance will be distorted, you’ll think north is south and south is east, and this keeps you lost in the sea of confusion. Lies confuse your inner compass, you will not know what direction you are traveling. That is what it means to weaponize narratives, believing in lies weakens people, you cannot know what direction you are travelling if your Spiritual Guidance System is messed up and you are moving in the wrong direction and are not aware that you need course correction.

This is an important part of Psychological Warfare, and mostly it is designed to confuse people into webs of disinformation and then get people to spread the disinformation as facts or made into a belief system. For a moment let us break that down. Weaponizing Narratives is how intelligentsia works to undermine a community of people, in which the attackers want to derail the truth and to spin people off into false and made up narratives that are pure deceptions, manipulations and Gaslighting tactics. Then they put unscrupulous people on the payroll to spread disinformation stories, spread it all over the internet, and get gullible and unaware people in the group or movement to believe it and spread these deceptions in their own communities, so more of the public believe that the deception narrative it is a real and true fact, when it is really a made up lie designed to derail the group of people that believe it.

Weaponized narratives are targeted attacks made against a group of people, and this extends to nations and countries, where the attacking group seeks to undermine an opponent’s civilization, identity, and superimpose and subvert their will – in the global arena this is commonly used and purposely designed to destroy a person’s culture and way of life. By generating confusion, complexity, and political and social schisms that generate polarization and conflict in many groups of people usually people that identify with some kind of a classification system, black white male female gay transgender, etc., it confounds the response on the part of those who are trying to defend themselves from the pubic onslaught of negatively or Propaganda. Everyone knows in controlling narratives that the truth does not matter, its only what people believe to be true so they say anything that they think they can get the population to believe in so to control the narratives in 3D reality. Sadly this happens in the new age, leaders tell the audience what they want to hear in so thy can gain a following, because no one really wants to face Unpleasant Truths. It is really challenging to tell the truth in this environment of deception and lies, this is why so many people just follow the easier path and tell people what they want to hear.

How Does Weaponized Narrative Work?

Today, thanks to the Internet and social media, the manipulation of our perception of the world is taking place on previously unimaginable scales of time, space and intentionality. That, precisely, is the source of one of the greatest vulnerabilities we as individuals and as a society must learn to deal with. Today, many actors are exploiting these vulnerabilities. The situation is complicated by the increasingly rapid evolution of technology for producing and disseminating information. The core element of the weaponization of narratives is the manipulators correct assessment of their intended audiences’ cognitive vulnerability — the premise that the audience they are targeting is already predisposed to accept because it appeals to existing fears or anxieties that remain in the human subconscious. So they look to manipulate subconscious fears in those groups as much as possible to control people. If you have no idea about your subconscious programs and fears you can become like a puppet in their hands. For many of us that are awake and aware, this can appear like dark portal puppets, when you are awake people around you can be used to attack you quite viciously, and this is a casualty on the earth, as many people are not aware, and thus their physical vessel is used to hurl energetic weaponry or other methods to attack you. Many of us as awakened Starseeds have the experience when a person just hates your guts for no parent reason, and decides they are going to defame your character for their amusement, and spread a bunch of lies about you.

A fast-moving information deluge, saturating people with a lot of data coming in all directions is the ideal battleground for this kind of psychological warfare. A fire-hose of narrative attacks coming from every direction gives the targeted person, population or an organized community of people little time to process and evaluate the information as truthful because its being flooded into the community in several directions. Let’s say a narrative for attacking a group or person arises, and it is being saturated on social media platforms, and no one really knows if the information or accusation is true or false. This media saturation is cognitively disorienting and confusing, especially if the targeted opponents barely realize that an organized attack of character assignation or disinformation is actually what’s hitting them. Opportunities are then created for gaslighting and emotional manipulation of the community, which when under attack in this way, undermine the person being targeted for finding a way to respond or resist the accusations or information being saturated into the community via people that spread the disinformation by jumping on the bandwagon. This can destroy organizations, movements, and even a person’s reputation, it can get people arguing in circular debates over things that never even happened in the first place.

Distort Perception of Reality

Propaganda can be used to distort perceptions of reality:

  • People are generally poor judges of true versus false information and they do not necessarily remember that particular information that was actually verified later as being false.
  • Information overload leads people to take shortcuts in determining the credibility and trustworthiness of messages.
  • Familiar themes or messages can be appealing to people, even if they are false.
  • Statements are more likely to be accepted if they are backed by evidence, even if that evidence is false.
  • Using Peripheral cues to propagate the disinformation. This happens when a listener is persuaded into falsity because he or she notices that a message has many arguments within it, but lacks the ability or motivation to think about each of these arguments individually. In other words, the many arguments are intentionally being conflated into one message, like a short-cut of cliff notes that are being mixed together, and combined with an appearance of objectivity, this tactic can increase the perceived credibility of spreading Propaganda and disinformation.

Essentially what this means is we have to use common sense, Critical Thinking and see if the information passes our bullshit meter, and if we stop long enough to get quiet and then deeply feel into the information, many times we can get many intuitive impressions about it that helps us discern if this is a weaponized narrative or manipulation-deception signature.

Weaponizing Narratives are used to destroy communities and trust between people, it is to create conflict, controversy and divide and conquer scenarios which break apart the organization or community goals for unity and working together for a common purpose.

Weaponized narratives can also be half truths or lies that furnish the illusion of some emotional certainty at the cost of rational understanding and critical thinking. The emotionally satisfying decision to accept a weaponized narrative is to believe and to have faith in partial truths or lies prevents the opening of intelligent debates and discussion. Thus, it inoculates cultures, institutions, and individuals against counterarguments and inconvenient facts. If we don’t want to look at the truth because its unpleasant, we let people get away with murder because its more convenient to us. Then we are complicit with feeding the monster, we’re helping to co-create the ego monsters in the New age, Ascension and Disclosure movement. Therefore the Truth can be overwhelmed with constantly repeated statements that represent falsehoods, soon the truth has been replaced with lies, and no one even notices.

Keep this in mind as we continue to understand infiltration and hijack of the general narrative, because as I’ve just explained, this is the major components of the Psychological Warfare used to weaponize the new age, Ascension and Disclosure community. It is up to us to actually see and understand how they are accomplishing this infiltration so that we can refuse to be controlled by it. As conscious and spiritual people, we should make a commitment to truth, truth telling, and not fall into deception narratives by jumping on the bandwagon of consensus. Be the person that sees it as it is happening, and refuse to participate with it. [1]

‘NAVIGATING TUMULTUOUS WATERS’ ~ Caitlin Johnstone: “2020 Is Going To Get Much Crazier — Prioritize Your Mental Health”

As I said back in November, things are going to get weirder and weirder throughout the foreseeable future. We’re coming to a point in history where the only reliable pattern is the disintegration of patterns, and 2020 has come storming out of its corner swinging for the fences working to establish this pattern with extreme aggression. We’re not going to hit a point of stability or normality this year, we’re going to see things get crazier and crazier and crazier. I don’t know what’s going to happen, but I know it’s going to be nuts.

In such an environment, it’s going to be absolutely essential to take exceptional care of your psychological health if you want to remain engaged with what’s going on in the world in a positive way.

And I do mean exceptional. Whatever you’re doing now, do more. Start cultivating new habits to keep yourself lucid and serene, and start now before things get super crazy. Work out your issues with your family and with yourself. Remember to move your body in ways that feel good to you. Carve out some time out each day for just being quiet with yourself. Notice the beauty around you. Give cuddles, get cuddles. Take a shower and sing your heart out. Feel your feet on the floor, nestle your bum into your chair and listen to yourself breath like it’s a song on the radio. Yawn. Belch. Stretch. Roar. Put on some loud music and rock out. Whatever you know works for you to get you out of your head and back in to your body, remember to do it, and remember to do it regularly. Make it habitual.

Be proactive with this rather than reactive; if you wait until you have to react to things going ass-side up later on it’s going to feel like you’re fighting to get your head above water. If you do it now you’ll have the mental space needed to navigate tumultuous waters.

This is what will be necessary if you want to engage with the increasingly frenetic narrative matrix in the future. The only alternative will be to disengage completely and throw your attention into escapism, or at least away from politics and news. And if you don’t make the cultivation of mental well-being your first and foremost priority you will be forced, in a very unpleasant way, to disengage anyhow.

And honestly this is something all activist types should be doing anyway. Believing you can help the world without doing serious inner work is like believing you can clean the house while covered in raw sewage. You can always spot the political activists who engage without doing any inner work by the chaotic, unskillful and frequently counterproductive form their actions take. They can’t see clearly enough to operate efficaciously, because their vision is clouded with unresolved suffering and conflict. Get in the shower and wash the yuck off yourself before trying to clean the house.

Above all, be gentle with yourself. We got a ways ahead of us, and we need you fresh and feeling good. You won’t be able to help wake the world up if you let the chaos and confusion drag you down. Know when to take a break from the information stream and all the babbling narratives trying to twist your perception of it. Use your tools to distance yourself from the narratives so that you can perceive them objectively. Ground yourself, find your center, then, when you’re ready, wade back in.

No matter how chaotic things get, your ability to navigate that chaos skillfully needs to be your first and foremost priority. Put your mental well-being first, and everything else will fall into place.

Be the peace and harmony you want to see in the world.

ARE YOU SOVEREIGN, FREE? ~ Caitlin Johnstone on “The Truth, The Whole Truth, And Nothing But The Truth”

“Most people believe that they are truly free thinkers. Most people are wrong. Most people are controlled by unworthy, unquestioned ideas that were put in their heads long ago by other people. To attain a truly self-sovereign mind, you need to put truth above all else in every waking moment. You need to constantly dedicate yourself to learning what’s true and what’s real, and to living in alignment with the truth that has been discovered. Wanting true mental sovereignty means wanting to know the truth in all areas of your experience, come what may. It means wanting to know the truth about what’s really happening in your world, and how it contrasts with what you’re being told to believe about what’s happening in your world by confident-sounding voices on the screens that you see. It means wanting to know the truth about your family and your relationships and the various unconscious, unquestioned dynamics that are at play there. It means wanting to know the truth about the various aspects of yourself that you keep hidden and compartmentalized out of sight. It means wanting to know the truth about reality itself, and how you might have been misperceiving various aspects of your own field of consciousness this entire time. It means wanting to know the truth, even if very powerful people don’t want you to know the truth. It means wanting to know the truth, even if it hurts. It means wanting to know the truth, even if it is terrifying. It means wanting to know the truth, even if it means being wrong. It means wanting to know the truth, even if it means discovering that you’ve been completely wrong about everything your whole life. It means wanting to know the truth, even if it crumbles every belief you’ve ever had about what you are and what the world is. It means wanting to know the truth, even if it tears your life apart. It means wanting to know the truth, even though you know you’ll never have all of it. Most people are content to sit in various degrees of untruth, accepting unexamined assumptions as true because it is much easier and more comfortable than confronting reality on reality’s own terms. They’re happy to let the lies that have been put in their heads by other people rule their experience of this world. The mentally sovereign human does not do this. The mentally sovereign human looks at life through lenses constructed out of an uncompromising dedication to unrelenting honesty, on all levels and facets of human experience. Mental self-rule is not for everyone. It is not for cowards. It is not for the lazy or complacent. It’s not for those who do things only because there’s some material or egoic reward in it for them. These people are destined to have their minds ruled by others. Mental sovereignty is for those who put truth above all else, and who see truth as its own reward. Their dedication to learning what’s true never ceases. These people rule their own minds.”

CAITLIN JOHNSTONE: “Why Everything Is F*cked”

“This is ultimately the answer to every question about why things are f*cked right now. Why does it seem like nothing changes no matter who wins the election? Why do the wars keep expanding instead of ending? Why are those nuclear superpowers hurtling closer toward direct confrontation? Why are the mass shootings increasing? Why is everyone so miserable? Because every adult on this planet started off tiny, helpless, impressionable, and surrounded by gargantuan madmen, and it made it almost impossible to be sane. That’s why. We all slid out of the womb an itty bitty helpless information sponge into a world full of mentally ill giants who couldn’t wait to fill our tiny skulls with all of their inner demons. And now everything, understandably, is f*cked.”

~Caitlin Johnstone

 

We all slid out of the womb an itty bitty helpless information sponge into a world full of mentally ill giants who couldn’t wait to fill our tiny skulls with all of their inner demons. And now everything, understandably, is f*cked.

That’s basically our whole entire situation in a nutshell. You can add on as many extra details as you like — plutocracy, corruption, mass media propaganda, billionaire wine cave fundraisers, whatever — but ultimately our plight is due to the fact that every single human showed up on this planet completely helpless and knowing nothing, forced to trust crazy giants to give them the grand introductory tour.

Why were those giants crazy? Well you see, they got here the same way you did: small, slippery and completely clueless, surrounded by enormous gibbering lunatics who were all in a mad rush to teach them how to be insane.

And those giants came into the world under the exact same circumstances, as did the giants who came before them, and the giants who came before them, and so on.

It’s a grand old tradition of ours, ultimately stretching all the way back to our own evolutionary birth in this world and the emergence of a massive cerebral cortex in a mammal who up until that point had been primarily concerned with sneaking in a snack and a quick shag in between mad sprints away from sharp-fanged predators. This newfound capacity for complex abstract thought burst onto this frantic, confusing scene and was quickly seized and manipulated by the cleverer primates.

And thus human madness was born.

The most powerful early humans were the cleverest humans, the ones who understood how to use this new capacity for language and abstract thought to their own advantage. They realized that by simply saying something is true in a sufficiently confident way, they could persuade the less clever humans to treat it as true.

Those clever humans used this newfound ability to place themselves in charge, and to make a bunch of rules to be passed down from generation to generation proclaiming that the less powerful humans must submit to the more powerful humans. Over the generations these rules became more and more numerous and complex, weaving in moralism, codes of filial piety, and insane power-serving religions glorifying meekness, obedience and poverty.

These power-serving rule sets were picked up and used to justify highly traumatizing behavior in the service of the powerful, from wars to genocides to institutionalized torture and brutal executions of the disobedient, and just within domestic power structures the institutionalized normalization of spousal rape and physical abuse in households all around the world.

This eons-long tidal wave of deep trauma and power-serving rules structures passed from generation to generation to generation picking up more and more demented flotsam and jetsam as it went along, to ultimately come crashing down upon your crowning head as you emerged from your mother’s body.

That is your legacy. That is everyone’s legacy. Countless generations of cumulative madness, washed into the present moment on a current of eons of exploitation and senseless cruelty stretching all the way back to the dawn of our species on this planet.

This heritage of madness is funneled straight into our sponge-like brains from the moment we emerge from the womb and all the way through an extremely traumatic and confusing ordeal known as childhood, after which we are handed the keys to the world and told “You’re an adult now. You’re in charge. See if you can figure out how to run this place better than we did.”

We never stood a goddamn chance. None of us did. The deck was stacked against us long before we got here.

And now you get political commentators constantly railing on about “Gosh, if only we could get people to stop listening to their televisions and vote third party and read World Socialist Website and turn up to demonstrations and take back the power of the people from our oppressors, we could turn this thing around!” Not realizing that everyone else in their country went through the same traumatic, confusing ordeal that they went through at the beginning of their lives, the only difference being that most of them got a lot less lucky in sorting out reality from madness. And not realizing that they themselves are still quite mad.

This is ultimately the answer to every question about why things are f*cked right now. Why does it seem like nothing changes no matter who wins the election? Why do the wars keep expanding instead of ending? Why is the news man always lying? Why are they locking up that white-haired fellow for publishing facts? Why are those nuclear superpowers hurtling closer toward direct confrontation? Why are the rainforests vanishing? Why are the whales dying? Why are the mass shootings increasing? Why is everyone so miserable?

Because every adult on this planet started off tiny, helpless, impressionable, and surrounded by gargantuan madmen, and it made it almost impossible to be sane. That’s why.

Notice I said “almost”. It is still possible to find one’s way into a relationship with reality that is guided by truth and untainted by madness, but you’ve got to start way, way, way back at the beginning and deeply re-examine even your most fundamental assumptions about what’s true and real. Because it turns out that while the mad giants gave us information that was very useful for interacting with other mad giants, it was almost entirely useless for learning how to navigate through life in a wise and truthful way.

And that’s what I’m pointing to here: it’s important to get clear on just how far back the crazy goes and how fundamentally interwoven it is with the situation in which we now find ourselves. If you begin with the assumption that our problem is simply due to humans not voting and mobilizing correctly in alignment with the correct ideology, you’ll miss the real obstacle entirely. You’ve got to zoom the camera out much, much further to see the full picture.

Can you become a deeply sane individual, untainted by your ancient heritage of madness? With a lot of work and uncompromising self-honesty you can.

Can all humans become deeply sane and untainted by their ancient heritage of madness? It would take a miracle. A whole lot of miracles. Billions, to be precise.

But then, I believe in miracles.

PROPAGANDA PSY-WARS ~ Caitlin Johnstone on “How To Defeat The Empire”

“Our psywar is fought with the goal of using our unprecedented ability to circulate information to continue to kill public trust in the mass media, not with lies and propaganda, but with truth. We’ve each got our own strengths and abilities that we bring to the psywar: some of us are funny, some are artistic, some are really good at putting together information and presenting it in a particular format, some are good at finding and boosting other people’s high-quality attacks. Everyone brings something to the table. Don’t shy away from speaking loud and shining bright. All you need to do is wake people up in as many ways as possible to the fact that they’re being manipulated and deceived. Every newly opened pair of eyes makes a difference, and anything you can do to help facilitate that is energy well spent. Without an effective propaganda machine, the empire cannot rule.”
