US Military Apologizes For Posting Uncomfortably Honest Tweet One of the biggest obstacles in getting people to realize how deeply propagandized they are is the cognitive dissonance which comes rushing in when one considers the implications of viewing the world free from the lens of military psychological manipulations. The sociopathic propaganda engine slipping up and stirring the populace from their slumber is nothing to complain about, the actual reality of our actual situation is.

Nothing In Any Conspiracy Theory Is As Bad As What's Being Done Out In The Open If we could see with fresh eyes what is being done to us and our fellow man right out in the open, we would recoil and fall to the ground trembling in abject terror. The only reason we don't treat these terrible things like what they are is because they have been normalized for us to the point where we take them for granted and assume that's the only way things could possibly be.

After their failed attempt to use Trump's far-right following to make his fanatically neoconservative opponent look electable in 2016, they simply shifted to using the exact same tactic for 2020.

Conservative mass media will continue to defend the US president, and liberal media will continue to defend the CIA and the FBI.

Narrative Is Crumbling Over five decades, the Overlords have taken control of the media which Americans rely on for news, and simultaneously conducted psychological research on how to influence peoples' thinking. They have been devastatingly effctive propagating obvious lies and getting huge numbers of people to trust them. But in 2020, the lies are becoming so outrageous that average people are beginning to question their source.

US Politics Isn't "Polarized"; It's In Almost Universal Agreement When you look at US politics, it appears as though there are two mainstream political factions that very strongly disagree with one another. "Divided" is a word that comes up a lot. "Polarized" is another.

If Every Debate About US Interventionism Was About Godzilla Instead When I was writing about Syria a lot they told me I opposed US interventionism because I'm a fascist. Now I'm writing about Venezuela and they tell me I oppose US interventionism because I'm a communist. Maybe I just oppose US interventionism?

MSM and the US State Dept are the biggest peddlers of conspiracy theories Conspiracy theories, in reality, are nothing more than people's attempts to explain what is going on in their world. Some attempts to explain these things will come from a well-informed and intellectually honest place, and some will come from a myopic and intellectually dishonest place. Their individual merits can only be assessed on a case-by-case basis.
