Have you ever seen Americans when the electricity blacks out? Americans are mostly alright, they just need to dry out from the media-drugs that keep them too mean and overstimulated to think, and the chemical-drugs that allow them to cope with the side effects of the media-drugs with only an acceptable number of mass shootings.
I agree. We shouldn’t hate the American sheep for being sheep. After all, sheep don’t know better. All they know how to do is be sheep. We shouldn’t begrudge them for that. The CIA did its yeoman’s work well, let’s give them credit for hard work at least.
Right after the Kennedy Assassination, the CIA immediately promoted the notion of Conspiracy Theory. Notice the timing? The CIA was probably up to their neck in his murder like so many others, so perhaps it was self-protective. But most Americans have now imbibed.
I have noticed that even liberal Democrats utterly refuse to believe that the government is lying to them on foreign policy. They respect the word of the Ministry of Propaganda in the Pentagon and the State Department. They nod gravely at the word of the CIA as if it were the word of God. It’s as if they never heard the word disinformation before. They believe everything they read in the media about US foreign policy.
I keep trying to convince them otherwise, but they are sticks in the mud, and many times they get very angry when I insist that they are falling for a lie.
I am having a hard time figuring this out. But hey, let’s face it. It’s terrifying to confront the notion that your government is lying to you most of the time on foreign policy. It’s nerve-wracking to think you can’t even trust the grand edifice of the US media organs and their gravitas.
Think about it. Now you have to question everything you read or hear regarding a wide variety of subjects. You you have to face the fact that there are people who are lying to you all the time.
But that’s horrifying. Imagine going out into society, and half the people you dealt were out and out lying to you. After a while you start to figure it out. That feels like sheer terror. Who do I believe? Who’s lying? Who’s telling the truth? And how to I tell one from the other?
Most people barely have time to read a paper, if that. Think of how much work it is to uncover the lies of the media and government. It takes up a good part of my day, and I don’t even work! Your average person barely cares about foreign policy anyway. They’re not going to go digging to see whether half the stuff they read is true or not.
The notion that a good part of the “facts” that you read and hear as official information are actually complete lies causes a lot of anxiety. Humans don’t like to feel anxiety. It feels very bad. When anxiety lands on most people, they try to shrug it off their bodies like an ill-fitting coat.
Much better to say “Screw it” and believe everything the media and government tells you until proven otherwise. The notion that Life Is a Conspiracy Theory (my position) is too much to bear. A lot of people might just pick up a gun and buy it rather than live in a system like that. That or retreat to a cabin far off in the woods and say the Hell with everything and everyone.
