Thanks! Call me altruistic but I like to think that, if there really was a shadow cadre running the world with complicit intent to oppress...humanity and righteousness would eventually prevail.
I try to leave the U.S. at least once a year, if possible, to gain fresh perspectives. There really is no room to breathe at home, at least in my opinion. It doesn't take long to become overwhelmed by fear, polarization, dissatisfaction, disenchantment, etc...just general negativity. There is tension like I've never seen it before, and it's starting to simmer. Hopefully it isn't brought to a boil and/or the stove doesn't catch the curtains on fire.

"A belief is only a thought that one thinks over and over".
Just a thought to break thinks up.....
"Everything is all predestined, or it's all random"....
It can't be both...Pick your side..either way you are right....lol
With that thought, where does "free will" come into play?
(sorry, too much Sunday morn coffee)

I have recently binge watched the first two seasons of Black List. And I think it is a very good example of predictive programming. Just about every conspiracy and sub-conspiracy is represented, along with a great deal of ambiguity about just who the good guys and bad guys are. Overall, I think major underlying theme is reconcilliation between old guard and new guard.
If you subscribe to the theory of disclosure of secrets, through mass media....for whatever reason TPTB seem to do that.....it would indicate to me, in a rather meta-data kind of way, that the public at large is being softened up for some forgiveness.
Just my opinion, of course.
