With the latest media manipulation seed of Rittenhouse, I think that many are looking at this in terms of ideals and idealistic situations. "Should"
he have been there? No, probably not. "Should" there be months of riots? No, probably not. But, this is what happens when society literally breaks
down in specific regions due to government inaction and horrific levels of deception in the media (this entire year has been staggering in that
to look at actual, full source material ..of everything.. and not
the manufactured reality propagated by the "news" and
what is shared by our insular circles in social media.
I have been speaking out about all the violence all along. It began long before Trump, for what its worth, even if it has escalated. Though up until
this point, its really only been coming from one social group for quite some time.
I think we have become habituated into being armchair quarterbacks and voyeurs that judge things more on ideals, our personal environment, and a
digitally cultivated perspective than reality.
I believe that saying "he shouldna done that" is akin to saying that a massive asteroid "shouldnt hit our planet." Its technically true, but it
doesnt change the inevitable.
The average person who has their perception of the world shaped by the news and what their acquaintances share on facebook perceive a completely false
reality.. and thats a very serious problem particularly when those who are inculcated and initiated into this belief system feel its everyone
thats the problem. So much so, that many feel we simply need to tear it all down, and they will "benevolently" create a new system for
I dont believe the media & news are relevant anymore, even without them being some of the most destructive, deceptive forces in modern society.
The reality is.. If residents in a region no longer feel safe. If government entirely abdicates its responsibilities. If the power structures fail to
provide the stability that is their sole purpose of existence. And if the residents livelihoods and life's work are being threatened and literally
burned to the ground by groups who openly state that is their goal.. All the while the national and international news lies about it.. Then the people
in the area will fill that vacuum just as surely as that asteroid will strike the planet. People have been extraordinarily restrained about all this,
almost like that asteroid slowing itself down by sheer will. They are restrained because they feel that the only solution is one that can not be
reversed: violent response. There are other ways.. Governors, mayors, media, and DAs could actually do their jobs for one. But, that isnt happening
and voices that might have ideas on this do not penetrate the information vectors. Anyone who goes against the media Narrative is [insert dehumanizing
buzzword here] or ignored entirely.
As someone who absolutely, unquestionably feels that this is all
the wrong path to go down. And, as someone who feels I personally
better solutions for so very many things, as I have been working on it specifically for nearly two decades.. I cant reasonably sit in some sort of
righteous judgment of these events anymore than I would wag my finger at that asteroid.
Its all as tragic as it is predictable. Many people in many regions feel completely backed into a corner, and thats exacerbated by everything from the
events throughout the year to the abusive gaslighting of the media and politicians.
This is what happens.
This is how events play out in "reality," outside of idealistic technological bubbles and digital veils. Yet, its still frequently commented on in
the same way that many would criticise The Bachelorette for going with Frank instead of Bob. So many think all the answers to everything will come
from corporate-political political pop stars, a Monolith. Instead of simply talking to each other, we have been conditioned to cheer on our "team"
through likes and shares, like hastily made signs and body paint at a football game.
Weve built a completely f%$#ed up society that is based in rapacious exploitation of ideals, rampant rape
of peoples minds, addiction to
voyeurism, and false realities derived from our technology. All leveraged by a corporate-political apparatus that aims for full spectrum domination
We stare at pixels on a screen, as they slowly blink out. All the while growing more fervent and zealous in the self-righteous judgment of the
increasingly abstracted image.
Stop watching the news. They are going to get worse, showing less and less of what actually happened until its just them preaching about what they
think you should believe is happening. To the point that when someone does
observe what is actually going on, data or video, they believe
is the lie. All under the duplicitous guise of "The Truth."
I firmly believe we can work through all this, but we are filtering all of our exchanges and interactions through corporate narratives and
This is what happens when we do that.
I believe we have immense amounts of technology that can solve so many issues. But, much of it is downstream effects and they are profound enough that
serious, honest discussion is required throughout the process. We have also been conditioned to look at everything with the greatest degree of myopism
possible; we leave the "big picture" to corporations, politicians, and global organizations by just giving them massive amounts of funding. We leave
it to the "experts" and the "settled science." All without asking for more real-world results than them saying "We are doing GoodThings! If you
say differently, you must like BadThings!"
The world today is what happens when we do that. When we put such absolute, unflinching faith in institutions that all who question it are Bad. It
doesnt end here either. We know how history rhymes, even if this is all quite novel.
There is a massive manipulation machine and we all know it, yet many still buy into it. Thats how effective it is. People know
they are being
lied to, they know
they are not being shown events as they actually happened, they know
there are alternatives. But, they keep going
back because its just that effective.. and this is all what happens when we do that.
People want a single focal point that has all of the answers to everything, an easy Monolith that offers everything. All the solutions to all the
problems, that contains all the knowledge and understanding in the world that will do everything for us so we dont even have to think about it. The
corporate-political apparatus sells us this illusion. Yet, it delivers nothing but dependence, lies, and subjugation in exchange for the paltry sum of
willful ignorance, absolute faith & trust, and our hearts & minds. Then it convinces us to come back for more and defend the corporate "honor" as if
it were our very own heart & soul.
Should we do that? No, probably not... Because this is what happens. A glimpse into life under absolute Monolithic technocracy. Put your faith and
trust into that Monolith at your own peril. There is no reason to do so, particularly when we still have instant, constant access to the work of those
outside of that structure. People who are doing amazing work in every field imaginable, every day. You should probably check it out.
There. Now I feel better
