“If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State [under fascism].” – Joseph Goebbels, Nazi Propaganda Minister
We the people are being lied to, by authorities and leadership, outrageously. The naive, which is most folks, are susceptible and vulnerable to being dumbed down and whose minds are prey for sophisticated digital social technologies that are allowed to algorithmically manipulate us. If an individual is not on guard, it is likely their stream of conscious thinking and beliefs has been hijacked by crafted narratives (PR, propaganda) not just by the culture. The lies we are being told are not noble, nor are they for the common good. The lies we are being told, clearly and measurably, benefit the few over the many. The masses are sacrificed to support what is essentially a consortia of banking, corporate, government, and political ‘elite’ seeking to consolidate power and control, while profiting madly. The central banking system is the mechanism for picking winners and the US military and/or government enforces it. If one thinks about it, we are only one global economic meltdown away from these interests hoovering up all the distressed assets, left in the after math, for themselves. This will be the eventual death knell of a once prosperous middle class.
We have been obedient. Despite glitches and malfunctions, and some glaring gaffs, we have complied with our wannabe overseers, in light of absurdity and harm. This should be a great cause for concern. We are watching faulty thinking coalescing around increasingly maddening premises at the societal level. People are being driven mad and angry. Conveniently our angst is diverted toward groups without power, while nobody seems to care about the massive digital control mechanisms being deployed by ethically challenged powerful entities.
