It's inescapable, really (the feeling something bad is about to happen). The masses have never before been so informed .. or so misinformed.
In actual wartime, enemies would spread rumours in order to keep populations off balance and anxious to destroy morale
Today, our governments and their cohorts are our enemy and the whore media takes care of the propaganda.
We can't trust the media any longer. Not only does the media conceal the truth, it also tells deliberate lies. Even fora such as this are full of
disinfo agents and trolls.
The police can't be trusted to protect us, nor can our military.
We're kept expectant, anxious and suspicious, subject to one alarming item of 'news' after the other.
As they say, those whom the gods would destroy, they first send mad.
I first started noticing all this in the 70s. No internet then of course and the media had not yet fallen to monopolistic zionist control. Tv was
the instrument used back then and they began airing one Nostradamus 'world's end' scenario after another.
For me, the 'head in the sand' approach worked well for many years. With two tiny babies and so much doom and gloom around, I moved from the city
to a beachside town in another State -- stopped buying newspapers and ceased watching the tv 'news'. For those suffering disinfo-overload, I'd
highly recommend this approach. Take long walks, enjoy your children, family and Nature, think positive and just generally give yourself time-out.
You'll find when you re-enter the crazy-zone, it's all still there .. the end-times scenarios just keep on playing as do the constant threats of
nuclear war, world starvation, deadly comets, political corruption, etc. etc.
I've found that I can only take so much of alternative news/conspiracy sites such as ATS. They inform but they also depress and can even defeat.
As they say, 90% of the stuff we worry about, never happens. And that's true.
Also, if something bad is going to happen, worrying about and anticipating it won't change things. So may as well get out there and do all those
things you've been putting off for another day .. while you still can.
The 'glamour' of discussing and worry about all these things wears off after a while. Although often, it seems people are hoping for an end-times
scenario, as an 'answer' to their life and problems. But this old world will keep on turning. It's seen a lot and will see more. Our lives are
short. There's a lot of good to be found out there(and a lot of good we could be doing) away from the screen.
When you talk to those who lived through World Wars, displacement, near-starvation, incredible suffering and grief, you realise that all that's going
on around us now is not all that bad. How could it be, when we're all sitting here before computer screens with the means and leisure to devote to
what are often not even decently-concocted rumours, most of the time ?
Now the people in Iraq ... they know what 'bad' means, poor things. It's embarrassing really, when we make such a big deal of things in face of
what others are going through. Many of us have too much time on our hands, I think.
