"I must do something!" will always solve more problems than "Something must be done"

Mass/Social Media

Posted by delta on August 16th, 2022

Here’s the thing. “The few” run the media. In doing so, they can present to you anything they want and they know you well enough to know how to sell it to you – via your interaction with social media, the cloud and the apps on your phones.

As such, “the few” have always attempted to make you believe that their agenda, beliefs or norms are the majority agenda, beliefs or norms… Non-stop… 24/7… and, like I said above, they are getting really good at it…

Turns out, they are not telling you the truth…

Turns out smoking is bad for you… Took 50 years for them to finally tell you the truth, but, oh yeah, smoking is BAD for you regardless of what the surgeon general said…

Turns out eggs are good for you… Took 10 years for them to finally tell you the truth about this one too…

Turns out that groups who often say to others “diversity is our strength” aren’t diverse at all…

Turns out the America government no longer regulates corporate America, they now subsidizes corporate America (calling it “investment”) – bailing out Fannie May, Freddie Mac, the banking industry and the auto industry was simply corporate welfare designed to bypass the free market – none of those companies did what they were suppose to do with the money – the real kicker, our tax dollars paid for it…

Turns out “American Oppression” is a myth. Do you see a mass of folks leaving…? No, they’re still trying to get here… The only actual oppression is the oppression of the Native population, who actually have no where to go…

Turns out NOTHING is secure online – never has been, since day one – keep your data, your feelings, your thoughts and your wants/needs offline…

Turns out that algorithms can perpetuate your existing prejudices so well, and feed you exactly what you want to see in the way you want to see it, that social media is more addicting than cigarettes or alcohol…

Turns out Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, TikTok and the rest of the social media platforms “own” your online existence and you have no control over it. You feed the algorithms every moment you interact with the algorithms with no say in how many, or which, servers your data is being stored on, or sold to. You do not own your information, they do…

Turns out the COVID-19 vaccine will kill and disable more people than the disease itself…

Turns out there’s not enough Lithium, Graphite, Nickel, Manganese, Copper or Cobalt in the world to produce the products needed for the new climate agenda – and, to make the issue more “fun”, China controls the mining and refinement of these minerals. 80% of the worlds cobalt, 90% of the worlds nickel, manganese and graphite refinement, 80% of the worlds tungsten supply – the list goes on…

Turns out America doesn’t produce any Titanium – Russia and China do – we are dependent on other countries for this metal which is vitally important to our aerospace, medical and defense sectors…

Turns out that mining for rare earth minerals generates extreme volumes of toxic and radioactive materials – Americans don’t want the reality of the mining and refining in their streams, rivers, upwind or backyards anymore – 10% of China’s arable land and 80% of it’s ground water isn’t fit for consumption – Americans would not put up with this…

Turns out the “Inflation Reduction Act” is simply corporate welfare designed to bypass the free market. The American government no longer has the juice to regulate corporate America so they have to attempt to bribe them into doing “the right thing”. Corporate America will take the money and not tell anyone publicly that it’s simply not possible to do what the government is asking them to do…

The truth will always out – they can try all they want, but it will always come out… In many cases it comes out years after the folks who began the initial media blast have earned their money and died – but it does come out eventually…

“Everyone” is so stunned when so and so wins this governorship or that Senate run because “the few” have been spouting the opposite for months in the hopes it will drive the majority away from the polls…

“Everyone” is so stunned when Congress passes this or that because the only mouth pieces being heard for months are those telling everyone it should, or shouldn’t, be done…

It doesn’t matter that the majority wants this or that… “The few” are presenting their views as the majority views to keep the majority silent, baffled and afraid to speak up… They want the majority to believe that they are in the minority… That is the game – always has been…

“The few” have the majority scared to death of offending – “the few” have the loudest microphone – “the few” are the only ones with a YouTube channel – “the few” are the only ones posting on social media…

There’s two things “the few” fear most: the free market and democracy. They will take your tax dollars and assure that companies and groups that the free market deems unnecessary will not be killed by the free market. They will use all their media prowess to keep you from going to the polls to assure the individual they wish to have in office wins…

I have two groups of friends in Ukraine at the moment. One is a church group and one is there to assess the situation.
The church group is surrounded by folks who have to drink and pass out “the cool-aid” or they will be disposed of the moment they present anything other than the “Ukrainian Experience” that the Western Press wants to present. The Church group is being led around like a tour group at a Hollywood set with sound effects and all in the background.
The other group of folks have spent time with the Ukrainian forces and the Donetsk and Luhansk freedom fighters. On the ground, they have seen Russians providing logistics, medical care, weapons/ammunition and food but nothing more (in other words, Russians are not fighting, they are supporting).
“The few” will be more than happy to print everything one group has to say and what the other group assesses will never be known…

“The few” will only present what they want you to believe as the only fact, the only truth and the only way “forward”… They will not present both sides of a story anymore – you either believe what they say without question or you are a zealot…

They throw around words such as “insurrection“ and “terrorist” to the point that any group of people can be under scrutiny – for nothing… It’s beyond ridiculous… Those words have lost their meaning… Any person standing up for their rights can now be called a terrorist and any act they do to proclaim their rights (such as marching to city hall) can be labeled as an insurrection – “the few” get to make their own rules as far as the labeling goes…

I hope there’s a way out of this without a civil war, but I just don’t see it getting any better. The average democracy lives 300 years – give or take 50 years – we’re coming up on that quickly… I hope I’m wrong because China is just sitting in the wings waiting to take advantage of something like that…

“The few” plan. The majority react. This has to change. The one thing I learned again and again as a PM/TD is that being proactive will get you 10 times farther in life than being reactive. Three is one, two is none…
