Welcome, ATS friends, to the age of Information Hygiene..
You are now living in a time when it is not 'what you know' that will get you by, because basically on the internet, anything can be hoaxed, and the
best hoaxes can practically fool a national government or fifty. We are at a point in our civilisation's history in which Information Hygiene is
necessitated, as a direct result of the voluminous flood of sanity-wrecking Fake News, False Flags & Propaganda shenanigans.
If we intend to use information responsibly, we will now be required to provide a literal 'chain of custody' of ideas/ dialogue/ facts/ professional
interpretation, by which I mean to say that Information Hygiene takes account of not only what is said, but who said it first, verification that
indeed it was said by that person (from third parties), and if it is to be discussed, analysed & interpreted, then we must be prepared to provide
references to account for the truth according to authoritative (or at least, truthful & socially aware/responsible) corporate or research sources or
persons. References were always a good thing - but this moment in history, where we are looking at the idea of managing our contact with news &
opinion, research & scientific results in a responsible 'chain of custody' sense, may prove to be a phase shift, a new paradigm for the instigation
of a new mode of day to day information management. Surely, we don't need to reference everything? Perhaps we do - perhaps we should now be
teaching our children to NOT trust in 'authorities' like Wikipedia, Facebook, Google, etc, but rather to unearth, source, discuss & debate as much
information as we possibly can, in terms of locating responsible original thought on any given topic, instead of lazy 'appeal to authority'
Metabunkalese BULLSNIP 'factchecking'.
Our kids need to understand the dangers not only of fake news, but also of shaped narratives, propaganda, deception operations, false flags &
multimedia manipulations of public opinion conducted by crooked figures within & without 'the establishment'. Because believe it or not, the
establishment isn't all bad. What is bad, is deliberately undermining the peace & security of a nation. Wealth is never fairly distributed - but if
a nation manages its affairs properly, its people should all possess the basics for what it takes to get by, and have opportunities to progress in
society. Anything (SOROS et al) that undermines that, or holds it to ransom (TTIP), should never be trusted or tolerated. If we are not careful, our
nations will be dissolved by meddling wickedness & the insanity of excessive privatisation.
The TAO of a nation is its balance between opportunities for trade, and its responsibilities to itself. A weaving back & forth, around a centre which
is perfect holism, a respectable balance between the classes, each group appreciating what the other brings, if they are being responsible with what
is handed to them, whether wealth by inheritance, or assistance measures from the state, or services rendered in lieu of assets.
Difficult times, and dangerous waters.
