CAITLIN JOHNSTONE: “Cancel Government Secrecy ~ Notes From The Edge Of The Narrative Matrix”

I’ve been publishing a lot more Notes From The Edge Of The Narrative Matrix pieces lately because something shifted here recently and I’ve been having loads more ideas for pithy tweet-sized observations, and if I don’t publish them regularly they’ll be hour-long reads. But don’t worry if you’re more of a fan of the normal essays, I’ll still be putting those out as per usual too.

How crazy is it that we’ve allowed people to have power over us and also keep secrets from us? That by itself is bat shit insane. And then to let them shame us and punish us when we try to work out what they’re up to behind that wall of opacity? Utter madness.

Government says it needs secrecy to make war on its enemies effectively, and, curiously, the more secrecy we allow it the more wars and enemies it seems to have.

Step 1: Legalize government secrecy so you can do evil things in secret.

Step 2: Use government secrecy to do many many evil things.

Step 3: Call anyone who says you do evil things in secret a crazy conspiracy theorist.

 

~

 

Government: We need to keep secrets from you.

Public: Why?

Government: We can’t fight the wars against our enemies without secrecy.

Public: But we’re not in any wars and we have no enemies.

Government: Yeah well it’s hard to make them when you don’t let us keep secrets from you.

Humanity is trying its best to collectively fix its problems, but trying to do so in a world whose power dynamics are aggressively obscured by propaganda and government secrecy is like trying to hit a bullseye in a dark room. Gotta find a way to turn those lights on so we can hit the target.

Rather than pretending to know exactly what type of revolutionary society would best lead to human thriving, you do have the option of just supporting the freeing up of all information and the end of all perception management and letting people figure it out for themselves.

End all government secrecy, end all political secrecy, end all corporate secrecy, end all Wall Street and financial secrecy, end all propaganda, give everyone equal media control, and just let people see clearly what the hell is actually truly going on in their world, and they’ll naturally start using the power of their numbers to push for healthy changes in their own way. Let people see the actual truth of what’s actually happening and stop using mass media to manipulate their understanding of the raw data and they can make informed decisions about what to do.

It’s the authoritarian mind that thinks it knows exactly what’s best for everyone. A respect for people’s self-sovereignty really means you just want powerful manipulators to stop dicking around with everyone’s understanding of the world so they can figure stuff out on their own.

Anyone with any interest in or access to power should be forbidden to keep secrets from the public. Like how crazy is it that DNC officials were allowed to conspire with each other in secret about how they were going to rule America in the first place? No, you don’t get to do that. If you’re part of a power structure, you have to show your work. Period.

If everyone could see what’s really going on they’d create a world that is night-and-day different from the one we have now, and infinitely healthier. Which is why existing power structures pour so much effort into keeping people from seeing what’s really going on.

I personally think that if people had all the information and weren’t being manipulated by powerful interests they’d create a society that takes care of everyone and isn’t driven by the pursuit of profit, but what the hell do I know? Give them clear vision and let them decide.

In any case, nobody’s getting any revolutionary society of any kind as long as the powerful can control what information people have access to and manipulate the way they think and vote. There will be no revolution as long as people are manipulated into supporting the status quo.

The first and foremost job of any US president is to serve as a decoy to draw the fire of all public scrutiny toward real power structures.

Propaganda is the root of all our problems; people consent to inequality and injustice because they’re manipulated into doing so. And propaganda is only effective because we’ve got an idiotic societal taboo against acknowledging that we can be fooled. That our minds are hackable.

Manipulation only works when you don’t know it’s happening. Those who think they’re too clever to be manipulated (which would be the majority of people) are the most vulnerable to manipulation. If we just made manipulation more shameful than being manipulated, this could change.

You cannot form an accurate worldview without accounting for the fact that powerful people have invested a great deal in manipulating that worldview, and that to some extent they have probably succeeded. Because being manipulated is considered shameful, most don’t look at this.

I have been manipulated and fooled. So have you. It happens to all of us. There’s no shame in it. The shame belongs solely to those doing the manipulating and deceiving. Fraud is a crime for a reason, and the one they charge for that crime is not the victim, it’s the perpetrator.

CAITLIN JOHNSTONE: “Problems of the Blind Following the Blind”

“People who still believe Trump is fighting the establishment remind me of senior citizens gratefully entering their credit card numbers to every message that pops up telling them their computer urgently needs virus protection. We’ve been given zero reasons to believe that a Biden administration would be any less likely than the Trump administration to make murderous foreign policy decisions, and we’ve been given numerous reasons to suspect the opposite might be the case. Remember Americans, if you have a problem with the fact that your system literally makes it impossible to elect a president who isn’t pure dog sh*t, you are crazy and murderous and the worst person in the world. Now is not the time to take a stand against America’s corrupt electoral process. You should wait until after Joe Biden is elected, then wait until after he is re-elected, and keep waiting, and just keep on waiting until planet Earth is one more cold dead rock in the solar system.”

Every Billionaire Is A Predator: Notes From The Edge Of The Narrative Matrix

‘DUMMY AND DUMBER’ ~ Caitlin Johnstone on “America: A War Machine on Top of a Police State on Top of a Mass Media Psyop”

“Joe Biden keeps trying to out-warmonger Donald Trump, and by Joe Biden I of course mean the team of handlers who are animating the dementia-ravaged corpse of the Biden campaign like a ventriloquist operating a wooden dummy. This tactic of attacking Donald Trump for being insufficiently warlike is nothing new for Biden Inc, nor is it limited to Venezuela. Again, this is Donald Trump these people are talking about. The same president who imprisoned Julian Assange for exposing US war crimes, killed tens of thousands of Venezuelans with starvation sanctions, vetoed attempts to save Yemen from US-backed genocide, is working to foment civil war in Iran using starvation sanctions and CIA ops with the stated goal of effecting regime change, nearly started a full-scale war with Iran by assassinating its top general, occupied Syrian oil fields and implemented devastating sanctions with the goal of preventing Syria’s reconstruction, greatly increased the number of troops in the Middle East and elsewhere, greatly increased the number of bombs dropped per day from the previous administration, killing record numbers of civilians, and reduced military accountability for those airstrikes. The second-to-last thing the world needs is political pressure placed on Donald f*cking Trump to be more warlike. The very last thing the world needs is a US president who ends up being even more warlike than Trump. America is a war machine on top of a police state on top of a mass media psyop. Only people who are willing to keep these psychopathic mechanisms in place are permitted to ascend to presidential candidacy. While all the news cameras focus on the relatively minor differences between presidents and presidential candidates, you can learn a lot more about America and what drives it by looking at their similarities.”

PRINCE RAY: “Donald Drumpf & The Dark Satanic Global Cabal”

President select Donald J. Drumpf believes, so he said that Africa is a “Shithole” country. Don’t get it twisted from my title. Africa is the mother country of the universe, and I mean it literally. Donald J. Drumpf means the terms “Shithole” and “Shithouse” to be applied to Africa both as an adjective, and a noun. Please excuse my language in this post. I mean no disrespect to the elders or the people. It is not used intentional just for the sake of being evil, foul and vulgar. “Shithole” and “Shithouse” appear only to demonstrate how irrational, insidious, fraudulent, idiotic and evil racism is. Additional, whenever it is Kemet, it is the Mother Continent, AFRICA.

Throughout the generations in this country, our elders stress that if Anglo Saxons and Aryans as a whole knew better that they would do better. And, many believe that Drumpf’s offensive statement disparaging the Mother Continent that we often call the “Mother Country” is the result of being badly misinformed. I don’t believe for one minute that it is true, particularly in regards to Donald J. Drumpf and the Dark Satanic Circles. They are motivated by EVIL for the sake of EVIL, and trickery. Many tried to warn the nation of the ultimate EVIL of DRUMPF before he stepped into the OVAL Office.

Now, DRUMPF, Mike Pence and the Dark Satanic Circle has the entire U.S. government in a strangle hold. Even if some knew better about the Mother Country, they would cover their eyes, and continue their EVIL plans of mass exploitation, deception, and genocide. The Donald J. Drumpf statement about Africa is purely deliberate. IT IS JOSEPH GOEBBELS’ UNTRUTH THAT SHALL NOT HAVE A LIFE OF ITS OWN.
