In a world under the cosh of ever greater active and surreptitious propagandised agendas and outright censorship connecting the dots of truths, facts and alternative narratives becomes an essential and life saving credential.
Of course when the narrative assigned to the connections are shared it’s a racing certainty cries of conspiracy theory, alarmist, anti-Semite, terrorist, misogynist, radical, traitor and worse will scream out. In a world where the rulers’ voice is sacrosanct, where lies are truth and war is peace such reaction is the norm.
By now it is all but obvious that we live in at least two realities – the reality of those who see, work towards and cultivate their own supra emolument and the reality where the so called 99% are tossed like jetsam and flotsam on the waves of diminishing reward, care and compassion.
Education as I have said in a previous article died a death centuries ago. The majority of state indoctrinated people never really started from any playing field. let alone a level one. To compound their sickness of ignorance they are encouraged to possess hand held mind control devices with ever more developed connectivity to central controls of manipulation under the guise of the latest v.XYZ. Television having set its goals way back in the 50s is now rampant with propaganda spewing from its every orifice on and off line. The amount of so called Fake News is called out yet spewed out from the very founts accusing truth tellers.
Division and setting each against the other, an ancient art perfected, merely creates ever greater confusion, befuddlement and stupidity lapsing into apathy.
The time for the Age of the Critical Thinker has never been more pressing nor ever more needed.
As a researcher, investigative fellow and sniffer after bullshit I have made a habit to question everything passing my eyes and ears. Only through rigorous examination, digging and questioning does it allow meaningful assessment. Such approaches do not perfect the process however they do allow intuitive insight to connect the dots more easily to events and their outcomes. In this way we begin to see and trace patterns. From these patterns certain regular outcomes, reactions and responses clarify.
With habitual liars, which I can say with conviction, many positions of high office and political process and habitual psychopaths are littered with, it is highly complex and a very difficult task to hold a narrative that is not true. The more complex events are and repeatedly lied about produces faster degrading and changing fact lines eventually blowing up into exposure. Truth told has no need for change, adjustment or liability to forgetting facts. Lies etch their decay into features and draw out melanin, where truth lightens and rejuvenates.
Today a good illustration in the latest of so called terror events is the Las Vegas Shootings – the story and pattern of events changing almost daily. This is so as the blatant impossibilities of the facts as told against growing evidence-based recall move further and further apart from each other.
In every event set up to shock, inculcate fear and suppress reaction, determine pre-ordained paths to war and criminal intent against personal, national or international interests there is a definitive cui bono – who is set to gain? Follow this question and doors open.
Follow the money is and always has been the scent any serious bloodhound follows. With little or no mainstream objective interest it’s always down to the truly independent and alternative media to question more and deeper.
Despite what so many believe, the Internet holds thickets of treachery, deceit and diversion. Critical thinking, educated assessment and sharpened precautionary senses are imperative when sorting fact from fiction.
Most people traveling these paths are driven by emotional reaction, personal agendas and thoroughly ignorant beliefs, often taken at face value off sensationalism dressed as fact then regurgitated as fact and dogma by such weak receiving reeds.
This effect, in the war on minds, is never discouraged as it serves to confuse, confabulate and distract from real facts and truth. Yet until we can sift the wheat from the chaff, we’ll be threshing all our lives in circle taking us eventually up our own backside.
To be in the game you need to play. To play you need to allow personal proclivities of emotional dependency to be laid to one side, preferably dealt with prior to playing. We all allow our emotions from time to time steer us wildly, so at least when it does burst through it demands grace and character to recognise it and regain control.
We can never find who controls what/us/the agenda, if we are unable to control ourselves.
Drilling down many of the events set out to control us and our lives look remarkably just like that, not the actions of lone wolves, events beyond our control or serendipitous.
On the other hand to jump up and declare immediately every event set upon us is a false flag, deception or calculated action is naivety itself. To foster any credibility at all, research, in depth analysis and investigation and especially a cool head are essential before judgment and final analysis is made.
The Age of the Internet and instant access to trillions of bytes of information does not help, even though it hangs there like some sweetie boon. It encourages senseless non thinkers to proclaim their omnipotent armchair insight into exactly who, why and when events transpired purely because a YouTube video or tweet says so or a breaking news article proclaims spurious nonsense.
The Internet absolutely broadens our reach to information, news, good bad and indifferent but does not automatically qualify how it is interpreted. That sadly is down to individual intelligence, use of all our critical faculties and desire to find the kernel of truth. As much as on the spot interviewing, reporting and investigation is essential, those that do follow this well worn path get results and experiential feedback.
While it is a thrill and crudely titillating to make emotional drama out of every aspect of life as it presents itself, by merely feeding on that false drama self-created through our own lens, it becomes mostly not only misleading but a disease in itself difficult in its addictive nature to cure. Cognitive dissonance can ring loudly through inept investigating and leaps of fantasy, as its limpet-like adhesion to official explanations and self nurturing comfort zones supports its right to survive.
There is a war on for our minds, that is certain and until we individually determine to become cognitively discriminating and far more cogent, we have all but lost any battle we may undertake. Patience, reflection, incisive investigation and being able to kill the Buddha when you meet him on the road is part and parcel of building strong defences towards critical thinking, truth seeking and salient outcomes.
The most important part of our development is the nurture, recognition and development of our critical faculties. It’s a life long process yet carries rewards so profound we will wish we had started at pre-school – well why not – it is what they call in indigenous terms – education!
Mens vincit omnia! – Mind Conquers all!
