The Mindwar Chronicles, Part 2
Lately, I see almost every partisan issue in American politics as a ruse. It doesn't take a lot of imagination to see how the status quo for each issue generally benefits core goals that we might infer for the elite like depop, centralization of power and property, impoverishment and disenfranchisement of the middle class, etc.
I was convinced that there would be a new flavor of street riots for this presidential election season and indeed there are; however, I was surprised that they chose Israel-Palestine as the fault line to fracture US society. Admittedly, it has been extremely effective. Look at how we went from right wing disdain for the war in Ukraine to right wing support for Israel! With the right levers they can play people's attitudes like a fiddle.
At any rate, all I can do to navigate the treacherous seas of conflicting information is to stick to my core values and try to identify which information actually matters for my decision making. Although I still read a lot about covid era issues, at this point I am just penciling in details such as precise degree of malice, what is the wrap up strategy or who will be the scapegoats.
I believe that the damage to trust in institutions is advanced enough that mindwars misdirection and exhaustion of reform efforts won't be enough for them to get back their previous authority. They will only be able to deflect or blunt the backlash. Trust building is a whole different process and they squandered the trust that people had in medicine, regulatory agencies and public health that had built up over decades. That puts us all in a dangerous situation where the powerful may believe that the only way to maintain authority of an increasingly distrustful population is open coercion and violence rather than nudges and propaganda. The current war footing may amount to them saying "unify against an outside enemy or else... ."
I do think we are experiencing the things you describe. The QAnon thing actually made some of my friends in the Anonymous movement a bit unhappy because QAnon seemed to absorb all the attention. It was as though Anonymous had ceased to exist. It's also clearly built of the kinds of elements you mention, with lots of esoteric razz-ma-tazz and in-group jokes to keep certain people interested.
There's another aspect to things that I wanted to get your thoughts on. At the beginning of 2020, roughly February or so, I was very ill with an upper respiratory infection and spending a lot of time with various news sites. I could not tell you where I saw the story, but it said that about 1,100 chief executive officers had resigned during 2019, and that was something of a record. Later, I saw a similar story for 2020 that indicated about two thousand, I'm not sure of the exact number. And this later story indicated not only chief executives, but also chief technology officers and other c-suite officers and across a wide variety of industries. I'm pretty sure that was an article I saw in ZeroHedge, and I think it was roughly March or so of 2021. It occurs to me that a lot of people who were "movers and shakers" were briefed on what to expect and told what they would be expected to do, and were given the option of retiring early or resigning. And that quite a few chose to do so.
This comports with a feeling I've had for the last three years that there is a lot of sloppiness involved in what's going on. Things are being done without much care. At first I thought this was an indication that not much attention was needed because so many people were going to die. But that turned out not to be happening as fast as we were told to expect, either. We were told, as I recall, that "event 201" had forecast 63 million would die from a coronavirus outbreak. But there were not that many deaths.
I could be wrong, but the statistic I've seen is all of 6 million, as of end of 2022, worldwide, from covid 19 itself (rather than from vaxxajab poisons, etc.), and that's from "official statistics" that looked cooked af when we read the list in the NY Times of the first 1,000 dead "from Covid 19" which turned out to include lots of deaths that were other things (motorcycle accident in Indiana was one that got my attention) and maybe were "dead with Covid 19" but not from it. I believe very devoutly that the one who chooses who lives and who dies is God, and not the people in the CDC and certainly not the people in whatever lab cooked up this bioweapon (as it seems to be). Then again, quite a lot of people who died from remdesivir or ventilators or other protocols were deliberately killed, maybe to boost the official death count idk. So I am a bit puzzled by the nature of the deaths we see reported and their causes. Were the people who went through the "desktop simulation" of event 201 given reasons to expect tens of millions of deaths? Or was it all guess work from the start?
Getting back to the "third string" topic, I really see a lot of goofy choices being taken and a lot of policies that don't make much sense being pushed, as though by children who aren't any good at their work. I wonder if you've noticed this effect, or saw some of the news stories I mentioned?
One does wonder what the intentions are. It's one thing to have a crazy plan like "everyone will live in pods, obey orders, and eat bugs" and another to have no idea what the plan is. The Bond villain-esque nature of the WEF "plans" and their glorious leader, Klaus Schwab, seems a bit like a ploy in a game of "Operation Trust." But then, why make them so obviously evil and their intentions so ridiculous?
I have this Chinese finger puzzle feeling. It's frustrating not knowing more, and it seems difficult to get any clarity or sense of what's really going on, and maybe the point is that while you are trying to figure out how to get the finger puzzle off the confederate has lifted your wallet. But, in this metaphor, wtf is the wallet? How does anyone "win" anything worth having?
You were successful in your quest to add a dose of entertainment. Number of places made me LOL (sexy nurses, Nazi Neighbors meetup where you trade pictures of Jordan Peterson, Sexually-dressed convicted felon reading hour..). Laughing is good, if I don’t laugh I’ll cry. The pics were excellently chosen as well.
A half-truth often comes across as a total lie. Lots of half-truths mixed in with truisms. No one can be right all the time. You gotta be ok with being wrong sometimes. This will free your mind.
Mathew, this is all very well and good, but if you really loved us and wanted us to be happy in respect of our superior native intelligence and hard-won critical thinking skills, you'd give us a weekly meme post. 😾
One silver lining of the vast number of “controlled opposition” is that if only a few come entirely clean, it may disrupt the entire operation.
How many of “them” know that “they” are the side of child murderers? Some near the top of the pyramid are aware, but I don’t think “they” all know the depth of depravity.
Just a few full confessions from those in the lower ranks might unravel “their” whole operation.
Thank you, Mat. This helped me self-evaluate a lot.
I think I might be starting to win, actually, I just had a misconception of what winning looked like on the individual player level. And a lack of understanding that a win condition isn't an end condition.
Are you trying to disappoint us? Steve Kirsch didn't invent the optical mouse, and RW Malone didn't invent mRNA gene therapy?
Very useful overview. I can see that the major problem is facing a tsunami of information, true and false, as well as a tsunami of positive and negative comments in a hall of distorting mirrors. You become punch drunk with high stress.
Just some thoughts about scaffolding ... As I was following along, I recalled undergrad days when I used to read popular science books for the layman, but with the deliberate intention of understanding theories (such as relativity or quantum mechanics) as emerging metaphors for psychology — that "Tao of Physics" thingy. I guess it was about the same time I started climbing up the wall of what-can-and-can-not-be-said with Wittgenstein's ladder.
Later in grad school, I found the Sapir-Whorf hypothesis (linguistic relativity) as another good justification for seeing/creating similar patterns across different academic domains ... though that habit does not transfer very well withing typical publish-or-perish academic career paths. Then, maybe it was about 20 years ago I discovered the Bill Moyers-Jospeh Campbell "Power of Myth" interviews on Japanese Educational TV, and went on to teach a graduation seminar on it, with one of my pedagogical goals as trying to empower the students with the realization of how metaphorically slippery words and narratives can be.
And about 5 hours before reading your post ... by chance (or synchronicity?) ... I came upon this neat little 11 minute intro into Jacques Derrida, which might make a good entrance or exit for the kulangeta-driven mindwars you write about ... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ojnQ0Acmy1A.
I'll have to read a bit more on him, because if I am not mistaken, he does not seem to include the salience of kulangeta-types in his epistemology. I wonder what he would have said about the slipperiness of good and evil regarding the plandemic or the Lahaina massacre?
One paragraph of your post in particular jumped out at me ...
"Dead End Paths: While choosing your own adventure, any one misstep into an appealingly arranged false theory could cost you time. Cognitive dissonance forces a lot of players into these cul-de-sacs where they are converted into NPCs."
I see myself as an NPC, but not due to cognitive dissonance or falling into a particular ideology. I am forced into a terminal cul-de-sac, a made-in-Japan version of humans-as-disposable resources. And I've just about run out of time. Barely enough to read some of the more sane and solid, meta-narratives (meta-metaphors?) out here, much less to do a little song-and-dance in comments.
Cheers from Japan
I think I need to lie down in a dark room and ponder
Sounds like you dodged a bullet by not making that trip to Robert Malone's ranch.
This is wonderful Matt! What a great way to explain a complex system of control. 👍🏽 So it gets lonelier with more success. Also a need to fight meaninglessness because NPCs are so lost, busy playing chess and knocking over the pieces.
I had to look up what NPC means, I don't think you defined it in your post. Non-player character, or someone not making progress in the game, yes?
Funniest line: "Sexually-dressed convicted felon reading hour at the library by hairy fat person with multiple genitalia who smacks children in the face with his penis between pages, imbued with effective legal impunity." 😅
I grew up during the Vietnam war. My brother got drafted, I was younger and the war ended on the cusp of my eligibility. Everyone in my brother’s unit was killed in action except him and one other guy. Still, I didn’t know any of them, nor did I personally know any the dead or injured from that war.
I’m tied of hearing the vaccinated dismiss the casualties inflicted on their brethren by the shots and horrible protocols simply because they feel fine and don’t personally know any of the dead and injured.
Do we need a wall with the deceased names on it before anyone cares? What’s going on is a sad testament to, a) The effectiveness of the psyops, b) Where we are at as a society.
I began looking into the UFO issue decades ago, and Chris Carter did a good job of depicting the masking of any possible truth to be found. Any serious researcher into truth eventually discovers a sea of deceit. Individual facts may be verified, but I've found that any ultimate truth can only be intuited after a careful sifting of one's own prejudices.
This good. From my own experience in trying to unravel the game, I’ve come to understand is that most people don’t know the ways in which they’re being played. I think people like Malone are doing what they genuinely think is best, just like the people who disagree with him. I don’t think he’s one of the game makers. It’s best not to fully trust him, you, me, or anyone. We’re all trying to figure it out. We don’t know what we don’t know until we know it. No one is infallible.
If anyone is driven to change the game, I recommend running for political office. That’s where real power lies and where true change can happen. Start at the lowest level. Run on an honest campaign, don’t take corporate money. Will it be harder to get ahead? Yes. I believe it can still be done though.
Also, parents, raise your children to have integrity and to live a life with dignity and morality. This way if they come to power, they can’t be blackmailed or corrupted in some way. Teach them to judge another by their actions and not to trust based off a person’s words. No one should be blindly trusted. It helps to listen directly to what people have to say instead of reading about what others think of a person. There’s a difference between opinions and facts. Teach your kids how to know the difference. Teach them the constitution, so they know when their rights are being infringed upon. Don’t be afraid to discuss current events with them. Encourage them to question everything.
