This video is a good summary of the Republican “alt right” (alternative to what is right; ie WRONG) ideology and politics in Texas and America in general, and this intelligent fellow is worth listening to no matter what side you happen to be on.
But if you were on the side against reality, you wouldn’t be here. The fact is that Reality is under attack. We are in a fully Orwellian totalitarian government, mainly led by corporations and the wealthy political elites in bed with them, whose job is to eradicate the middle class and make the 99% more easily controlled, dominated, manipulated, and abused. This is because the ruling pathology – and it is a pathology – requires one to be an utter psychopath. This abuse is not mere rhetoric; it is literal, from Harvey Weinstein to Bill Cosby to Bill Clinton to Donald Trump, the rulers of this world are sexual predators with no morals, no consciences, and in general no brains.
The system is designed so that those types of people rise to the top. If you work hard and are self-sacrificing and pursue truth, you will become like Jesus – homeless and crucified.
The fake reality that is being pushed on you is that climate change is a hoax, evolution is a myth, the world is flat, but science will solve all problems of food scarcity or environmental disaster anyway. Sea level rise won’t be a problem because HAARP controls the weather. Whatever the details of the delusions that are being put out there, the end result is that you are overwhelmed, depressed, and able only to work your menial job and scrape by and serve your masters while doing nothing about the world around you.
Food scarcity is a good example. America is the wealthiest country in the world, and food production is at an all time high – nobody should be malnourished, not here or anywhere. But a well-fed population doesn’t have “incentive” to work two jobs under the psychopathic capitalist system, and the military-industrial complex requires there to be wars fought somewhere so that the guns can be sold. Millions starve. The smallest disasters – hurricanes, fires – result in countless lives lost due to poor emergency services and hygiene because all the resources are skewed towards maintenance of the elite camps and compounds, and actively prevented from going out to help the masses.
Ideally, there would be no food scarcity, or water scarcity, and health care and education would be universal. But the system is designed to make these resources – which are theoretically available to all and morally should be given to all – scarce, so that the entire population is overwhelmed and apathetic, too concerned with the struggle of daily living to do anything like foment political changes which might actually threaten the stranglehold the psychopaths have over the normal human population.
Let me be clear here: the fact is that one to five percent of the human population are psychopaths. That’s a fact. They aren’t all Hannibal Lecters, devious masterminds or serial killers – that’s a myth. The reality is they are those people who are well suited to survival in the capitalist system which is largely devised by them. They are your boss’s bosses, your elected or appointed leaders, the alpha males of the pack. They are the sexual predators, who look good on the outside – clean-shaven, successful, superficially charming – but who put date rape drugs in your drink and assault you when you’re unconscious and are too well-connected with the local law enforcement and judicial community to be prosecuted so you never tell anyone and think it was a one-time, unique situation.
The sad fact of reality is it’s not a one-time thing; this is how the actual world works when you take into account the fact of psychopaths. People who are not prohibited by morals or sympathy, who only derive pleasure from one-upping each other and taking advantage of, hurting, dominating, abusing, controlling, humiliating or degrading others.
The propaganda of the war on reality is designed to keep people’s minds focused on distractions and red herrings so that they don’t get their acts together and do anything effective. It takes many forms. Most of the New Age spiritual marketplace is coated with anti-reality material. It incourages you to mellow out, to be accepting of others, to accept whatever happens as being the best way it could be (the is=ought fallacy), to not make disturbances, not resist, not fight, just go along with everything and anything that comes along. This is obedient slave training.
Of course, the Christian fundamentalist marketplace is coated with anti-reality goo too. In this world, everything is okay because the Bible says so and Jesus says so. So, poverty is accepted because people choose to be poor because they are lazy and don’t pray hard enough. Wealth is a moral reward for good behavior. This fuses nicely with pseudo-Eastern New Age “abundance” teachings. You shouldn’t be outraged at the suffering of others, but happy to see the Lord’s work being done and grateful you have whatever it is you have. Render unto Caesar. Obedient slave training.
In all things you are never to be too concerned with things like facts, evidence, supporting arguments, logic, proof, and so on. Anti-reality propaganda’s goal is to make these things obsolete, questionable, and to make everything murky and muddy. Whatever feels true, is true. If you’re hungry, that’s the truth. Chances are you are hungry because people eat sufficient quantities of food, but not the adequate qualities of food which will meet their dietary needs, leaving them perpetually under-fueled and fatigued. Even if you’re not hungry you may feel hungry, and dissatisfied, and this dissatisfaction is your main problem.
Universal to all modalities of anti-reality is resistance to the idea that we are currently undergoing the Sixth Mass Extinction, that climate change is fact, that energy resources are finite and dwindling, that governments are puppets to the elites, that most information out there is disinformation and that you are the target of psychological warfare operations. All of that is dismissed as “conspiracy theory,” and drowned out in the noise of anything else classifiable as “conspiracy theory,” and your attention diverted from it. Don’t think about it. Don’t think about scientific truths, historical facts. Don’t think about events critically.
