The house smelled of playdough and chicken fajitas.
As I waited on the family to organize themselves for dinner, I leaned against the counter and checked the feed. It was about 530.
8-10 news sources popped up with the “just now” time stamp alerting me to the missile strike. As if some kind of quantum entanglement had given me
a glimpse into knowing there was something “worthwhile” to see on that phone... maybe y’all know that feeling.
I took 2 Benadryl at 830 and called it a night. There would be no lulling myself to sleep with the internet tonight, I know better than to indulge in
the doom porn these days.
I wake up this morning to see post after post about earthquakes and plane crashes and the war drums beating, but nothing about zero confirmed
casualties from the mainstream. Nope. I read that here, and ironically- in a private message from my VERY leftist friend. Like, he would vote AOC
His last line “Trump can literally make me applaud him or denounce him for his next move”
I’m barely even awake, gonna need extra coffee to counter this Benadryl grog...but he has already figured out that something about zero casualties
here is telling... my leftist friend.
“Enough warning to evacuate the bases?” He asks.
Anyway, I’m not awake enough yet to attempt any more speculations, but I find it most telling that the algorithm can only send me negativity....
while I can find so much more simply because I know how to interact with other humans and navigate my way through the internet.....
I am fully aware, however, that most people, in this hustle of life, just simply check that phone while the last 5 mins of dinner is cooking- get the
bad news, and then let it linger.... because I don’t take for granted that others do not operate in the same way as I do. I also take into account
the way I operated when I purposefully ignore “conspiracy theories”
You can’t ignore all media and news. If you ignore the tech side, the human side will still inform you in your interactions. You’re just
uninformed then... you know something isn’t right about the conversations but you can’t put your finger on it when you’re actively ignoring it.
Then you get to add “confusion” to the emotionally disturbed symptom list.
How many people went to bed with worry and fear last night, because now that we have this techy media infiltrated lifestyle, they can get to us any
moment we get an “urge” to glance into the abyss of the internet we hold in our hands?
Glitches. Rip em down. Why do I not have 10-12 breaking news alerts at the top of my screen saying no confirmed casualties....Or at least a positive
update of some sort.... I have to search for those phrases.... but it’s not hard to find the ones that say “Iran claims mass casualties” or
I hope I don’t eat these words and I pray that the truth is there are ZERO casualties..... but regardless.... I don’t believe that Trump
could’ve posted “all is well” while still in the complete dark about the event.
As John Mayer so elegantly sang many years ago,
Now if we had the power
To bring our neighbors home from war
They would have never missed a Christmas
No more ribbons on their door
And when you trust your television
What you get is what you got
Cause when they own the information, oh
They can bend it all they want
That's why we're waiting (waiting)
Waiting on the world to change
Wait is over.
If this isn’t a meticulously planned operation to reveal the deception and loosen the stranglehold of the mainstream media on every human living in
the modern world, then we should all somehow hijack it and make it so.
Information warfare. Mindwar. Mind control. Emotional and intellectual sabotage.... when you make the Venn diagram of conspiracies, this circle
touches all. To know this and to be able to help others know this is the greatest weapon we have at our disposal.
Yawn. Benadryl is poison but so is worry; Sorry for the text wall. With my new found picture posting abilities, I will leave you with this:
