ERIC RAINES: “A Major Gateway Has Broken Open”

“The vast majority of the asleep collective just had the proverbial bell ring incredibly loudly and uncomfortably and it has dissolved many levels of dense/dark/heavy framework/programming on the etheric levels.  Of them, the most mentionable is the major black magic pools of strength, flow and power the elite black magicians have been using to hijack the collective and direct humanity into the 1984 Orwellian police state feeding the war machine that we see today.  With these cracks in the collective, we are seeing programs purging on every level and unfortunately, many do not know what trauma release is and get caught up in the emotions that are releasing.  The two that are louder than any others in the collective at the moment are mistrust and shame.  This is directly related to not only being lied to and mistrusting their own judgement, but realization of a perpetuation of these programs is being discovered, exposing a deep collective shame on these levels.”

~Eric Raines

 

The Human collective consciousness has experienced a stunning expansion, purging lost traumatic ancestral timelines, opening new levels of conscious exploration and shifting the fundamental timeline flows of the entire species.

The sun has increased its pulsing in relation to the level of conscious ability to broadcast light as explained in last week’s update.

This has thrown the powers that shouldn’t be into a tailspin of frenzied reparation of their black magic systems designed to hijack the collective future of humanity for their own benefit.

Much on this planet is not of the light and beauty that we know is possible inside of each and every one of us. Much of this planet creates extreme darkness. This is not something natural.

When we look at a healthy person, without traumatic history, they naturally draw towards feeling good, physically, mentally, emotionally and energetically. They naturally withdraw from pain, things that create pain, behavior that injures themselves or others and emotions that do not feel good.

Naturally, without traumatic Ancestral DNA programs being passed down, every human would feel extremely generous, benevolent and loving to the world at large.

What we are looking at right now is a product of a self perpetuating system that has gone wildly out of control, creating increasing levels of violence, hatred, darkness and warfare to get the same level of emotional reaction from humanity….and it has failed utterly and completely.

With the latest rash of mainstream coverage of UFO’s, from heads of state to military pilots giving professional testimony, a major gateway has broken open.

With the government admittance of having reverse engineered alien tech for the past 70 years, many asleep portions of the population have just been dropped a major red pill. “If they have been destroying people’s lives over this for the past 70 years, what else have they been lying about? What else have they been training us to ignore?”

The vast majority of the asleep collective just had the proverbial bell ring incredibly loudly and uncomfortably and it has dissolved many levels of dense/dark/heavy framework/programming on the etheric levels. Of them, the most mentionable is the major black magic pools of strength, flow and power the elite black magicians have been using to hijack the collective and direct humanity into the 1984 Orwellian police state feeding the war machine that we see today.

With these cracks in the collective, we are seeing programs purging on every level and unfortunately, many do not know what trauma release is and get caught up in the emotions that are releasing. The two that are louder than any others in the collective at the moment are mistrust and shame. This is directly related to not only being lied to and mistrusting their own judgement, but realization of a perpetuation of these programs is being discovered, exposing a deep collective shame on these levels.

Things are shifting incredibly quickly right now. Light and information are streaming into the planet on a scale unknown in history and many are feeling the call to rise up and become more.

What we can do: Be the light. Be the example. See the world in chaos, division and warfare around us and recognize that we cannot change this problem on the same level it was created. We cannot fight ourselves into peace. We have to find the reasons for the warfare inside of us and transmute it into what we actually want to see in the world at large.

As we do this, as more and more of us tap into this collective field that WILL be the majority, the resonance becomes stronger. The frameworks of density that are containing the human collective become weaker. We can expand. We can naturally evolve without limitation.

Start stepping off into that great unknown. If you have that business you want to start, make steps now to do it. If you have that skill that you love, PRACTICE!! ENJOY!! FOLLOW THE EXCITEMENT!! If you have that person you are to shy to let know you are interested in them, speak up! If you have a fear, put yourself in the middle of it and breathe your way into release.

Grow! Evolve! LIVE and truly exist right here, right NOW.

Now is the only place where anything truly interesting happens anyways 😀

Be that light, be that spark. Be that torch in the darkness, that whirlwind of laughter and love.

We got this!!

From my heart to yours,

Eric

LISA RENEE (Time Shift Blog): “Imagining World Humanism”

“Disclosure is what is required to end wars, and stop directing covert and overt militant weaponry that is used to mind control the population, as well as perform senseless killing. It is true that based upon the clear evidence of continued violent warring, weaponry and destructive behaviors, some in the Intergalactic community believe the people of the earth are criminals and hybrids that should remain sequestered in this system of consciousness imprisonment. Many are wary and distrustful of the people that come from the earth. I hope someday the people of the earth will rise to change that perception.”

~Lisa Renee

 

We share this world with many other life forms that we can physically see, and not physically see, yet these life forms are not included by mainstream science as life forms having sentient intelligence, or as entities that have souls. How would the ideas of moral nihilism and the death culture be impacted if humans could feel the pain they create in others and feel the suffering consciousness of every living creature? To deeply experience the fear and pain created when that creature is brutalized at the hand of others, to feel the pain of living creatures when they die exposed to extreme states of cruelty.

And to know that this pain and cruelty does not leave when the body is killed, it stays there in the land, in the sentient field right where the act of brutality occurred, until unconditional love cleanses it.

In truth, this is my greatest wish that all humans on the earth that brutalize others through their own destructive actions, could feel the painful results they have created in the world around them. The immense suffering we see in the world is caused by their own choices to repeatedly carry out destructive actions, such as treat people and living things with disdain and cruelty. Once you truly know how intense the suffering, the genetic deterioration and slavery that is caused in this world, a sane person does not want to create any more harm. This has nothing to do with mental judgments of right or wrong, or self-indignant morality — it is a Universal truth.

Imagining World Humanism

Imagine we lived in a world where all people wanted to live in harmony with the Natural Laws and there was no concept of money used as a control system to enslave others. Therefore, all people were treated with love, dignity and respect, to be equally educated in creating balanced and holistic lifestyle with others. Others who also choose to live in a world based in love, peace and unified cooperation, where everyone is supported to actualize their greatest evolutionary potential and inner creative genius.

Imagine we lived in a world where fundamental human needs were the basic right for all people of the earth, and that the global society worked together to co-create a more benevolent and peaceful world, a world without war, mass murder, slavery, religious violence and tyrannical oppression. That the world’s highest goal was to apply humanistic ethical philosophy blended with Universal principles of the Law of One to expand consciousness, which inspires that these Fundamental Human Needs are necessary and to be met for all human beings on the earth.

Imagine that we co-created a world where humanity placed the highest value on ethical conduct in authentic leadership and only allowed those spiritually developed and compassionate people that consistently demonstrated honesty, integrity and trustworthiness in communications and truth telling, who were competent in their areas of expertise, to be of service to the population. Our leadership would not perform actions opposed to their understanding or have understanding or personal knowledge which was used to exploit others. Their personal actions in the outer world would match their true inner self and genuine thoughts. People could see when deception or lies were being presented and so then, people could no longer lie to others. The role of leaders combined activities are coordinated to lead the people to unified goals based on the same core humanitarian values. These true humanitarian leaders and visionaries could help bring in the learning sanctuaries that are available to all people, and would focus on uniting others, wholeness, healing, self-leadership and fulfillment for everyone in the community.

Our learning, healing, creative arts and spiritual sanctuaries would be dedicated towards humanities higher knowledge and furthering consciousness development and exploration, would have unlimited resources to give to the future development of our children, species, and to support the unique purpose and consciousness signature that is inside of each person. Imagine that all people are valued for their unique contribution and from birth, have the available resources to develop and expand themselves in their unique areas of interest or fields of expertise.

Imagine that our communities and societies are founded upon organizational policies and programs that are based in shared humanitarian values of co-creating World Humanism, shaping our communities through modeling behaviors such as:

  • Unified Cooperation and Service to Others
  • Loving Kindness, Compassion and Empathy
  • Respect, Dignity and Harmlessness for All
  • Honesty, Integrity, Truth and Transparency
  • Fairness, Forgiveness and Humility
  • Consciousness Expansion, Higher Learning and Synchronicity
  • Co-creating Responsibly with Earth, nature and animals
  • Legitimate Admittance to participate with the Intergalactic Community

World Humanism is based in the re-education of human value, which emphasizes the importance of shifting anti-human ideological beliefs such as the death culture, into humanist based ethics and related philosophical and egalitarian principles. All human beings deserve humane treatment in order to live upon the planet with dignity, with basic access to meet their Fundamental Human Needs. Our goal is to apply humanistic ethical philosophy blended with the spiritual egalitarian principles of the Law of One to expand consciousness, which inspires direct knowledge or “Gnosis” of direct consciousness and awakening experiences.

Mainstream Humanism defines itself distinctly as the disconnection of the human being from its inherent spiritual-energetic intelligence or Soul, in an attempt to remove the concept of Humanism away from the learned bias and practices of religion. It is impossible to separate humanity from its sentient Soul body, and truly practice an ethical based Humanism aligned to Natural Laws. Once direct knowledge of the sentient soul consciousness is known as a reality, this fact is experienced without the need to control others through religious bias, or conform to religious rhetoric or scientific atheistic judgments.

Ascension essentially encompasses a Universal perspective towards the compassionate practice of World Humanism and includes the entire spectrum of life, of all inhabitants of the world no matter what race, religion, belief or creed, to be equally deserving of benevolence, empathy and compassion.

These are some of the clear examples of how other advanced races beyond our Solar System co-exist and live together, that are actively participating with the Intergalactic community and Interdimensional Free Worlds. The inhabitants of earth are fully excluded, until these global problems of destructive violence and world suffering are directly acknowledged and steps are taken for disclosure. Disclosure is what is required to end wars, and stop directing covert and overt militant weaponry that is used to mind control the population, as well as perform senseless killing. It is true that based upon the clear evidence of continued violent warring, weaponry and destructive behaviors, some in the Intergalactic community believe the people of the earth are criminals and hybrids that should remain sequestered in this system of consciousness imprisonment. Many are wary and distrustful of the people that come from the earth. I hope someday the people of the earth will rise to change that perception.

With a Loving Heart,

Lisa

ERIC RAINES: “The Importance of Now”

“One of the most powerful things you can do as a reality co-creator, is to exist in the eternal NOW. Move through each moment of your life as if you were a child experiencing everything for the first time. See things as they are, not with what previous biases say that they are. Look for the magical shapes and faces inside of the clouds instead of labeling them ‘clouds’. Look for the mystery in the way the trees move and are guided along through divine patterning instead of just walking next to the ‘trees’. Experience the wonder of a child, truly embedded in the NOW.”

~Eric Raines

 

In the scientific and Spiritual communities, it is fairly common knowledge that time truly does not exist. Time has been manipulated into a single flow of point A to point B, instead of the all encompassing essence of the infinite, or the eternal NOW. What most have not been able to grasp, is that simply by existing inside of time and accepting it as fundamental in how your reality functions, you are opening yourself up to multiple access points.

One of the most powerful things you can do as a reality co-creator, is to exist in the eternal NOW. Move through each moment of your life as if you were a child experiencing everything for the first time. See things as they are, not with what previous biases say that they are. Look for the magical shapes and faces inside of the clouds instead of labeling them “clouds”. Look for the mystery in the way the trees move and are guided along through divine patterning instead of just walking next to the “trees”. Experience the wonder of a child, truly embedded in the NOW.

It is only when we step into time, once we cross over into the adult world of work, bills, and increasing pressures, does time begin to hold sway. The age old adage of “Once you turn 18, time just goes faster and faster.” explains everything. As a child, 5 minutes can feel like a half hour or sometimes even longer, simply because we have no other worries than doing exactly what we are doing right then and there. It is only when we are older and have time limits and deadlines that we impose on ourselves every day does time begin to infect our consciousness. This is the fundamental barrier between the childhood consciousness where everything is possible and magic is only around the corner, to the fully sterile, sanitized, compartmentalized and fractured “adult” mentality

In a place of frantic rushing, we cannot find stillness.

In a place of worry outside of the now (fear of the future, regret of the past), we cannot find peace.

In a place of rigidity, we cannot enjoy the flow.

In a place of hate, we cannot find a smile

In a place of closemindedness, we cannot understand the deeper nature of what is real and what is not.

By stepping into the NOW, by experiencing THIS MOMENT as fully as possible, you automatically phase out the list above. In the NOW as fully as possible, there is no frantic rushing. There is no place to be other than right here, right now, thus the term “late” does not even exist. Focus on what you have control over in the moment. If you are “late”, turning yourself into an emotional and energetic nuclear explosion serves nothing but the entities that are feeding on that resonance. Breathe. You will arrive when you arrive.

By stepping into the NOW, there is no past, there is no future, there is only direct 5D experience. Fear of what is coming and regret at what has been cannot exist, simply because the direct experience of the NOW, with 100% of your focus firmly placed there is all there is. There is no time to worry, because you are outside of time.

By stepping into the NOW, we immerse ourselves in the experience. Completely immersed in the moment means that you are directly dialed into the nuances of the experience, completely in tune, yet not micro-managing the event….completely in sync, yet not directing. This allows for simul-flow, or direct reaction to the NOW without thought or intention….it is a state of just being. In this state, true physical magic is possible.

By stepping into the NOW, there is no place for grudges or building resentments. In the now, you are in a constant state of shifting to accommodate the container (water flows into the teapot, it becomes the teapot. Water flows into the cup, it becomes the cup). If there was emotional friction in one moment, in the next moment there is only cooperation because there is no past in the NOW. With no preconceived biases or stereotypes, we meet each other as people, not categories. People are naturally generous, happy, compassionate and loving….when they stem from the NOW.

By stepping into the NOW, there is no trying to fit the situation into your understanding of how things are. By stepping into the NOW, you see things for what they truly are, not what your belief system dictates is real. This by far is the most important thing you can do for yourself while in this reality. By releasing the agreements that the collective consciousness has imposed on our reality, we can then see into the heart of this Matrix. By becoming aware of the parasitic construct, we now have the power to do something about it. Energy flows where attention goes, and the parasitic construct has more light and attention on it right now than ever before.

Stay in the NOW dear ones. Breathe. Experience fully. Observe in wonder. Spark the inner child back to life. We got this

From my heart to yours,
Eric

CAITLIN JOHNSTONE: “32 Tips For Navigating A Society Full Of Propaganda And Manipulation”

“As Carl Sagan once said, ‘It pays to keep an open mind, but not so open your brains fall out.'”

~Caitlin Johnstone

 

For as long as there has been human language, humans have been using it to manipulate one another. The fact that it is possible to skillfully weave a collection of symbolic mouth noises together in such a way as to extract favors, concessions, votes and consent from other humans has made manipulation so common that it now pervades our society from top to bottom, from personal relationships between two people to international relationships between government agencies and the public.

This has made it very difficult to figure out what’s going on, both in our lives and in the world. Here are thirty-two suggestions for navigating this complex manipulation-laden landscape, whether it be for navigating the manipulations you may encounter in your small-scale personal interactions, or the large-scale manipulations which impact the entire world:

 

1 – Understand the fact that humans are storytelling animals, and that whoever controls the stories controls the humans. 

Mental narrative dominates human consciousness; thought is essentially one continuous, churning monologue about the self and what it reckons is going on in its world, and that monologue is composed entirely of mental stories. These stories can and will be manipulated, on an individual scale by people we encounter and on a mass scale by skillful propagandists. We base our actions on our mental assessments of what’s going on in the world, and those mental assessments can be manipulated by narrative control.

2 – Be humble and open enough to know that you can be fooled.

Your cognitive wiring is susceptible the same hacks as everyone else, and manipulators of all sorts are always looking to exploit those vulnerabilities. It’s not shameful to be deceived, it’s shameful to deceive people. Don’t let shame and cognitive dissonance keep you compartmentalized away from considering the possibility that you’ve been duped in some way.

3 – Watch people’s behavior and ignore the stories they tell about their behavior.

This applies to people in your life, to politicians, and to governments. Narratives can be easily manipulated and distorted in many different ways, while behavior itself, when examined with as much objectivity as possible, cannot be. Pay attention to behavior in this way and eventually you’ll start noticing a large gap between what some people’s actions say and what their words say. Those people are the manipulators. Distrust them.

4 – Be suspicious of people who keep telling you what they are and how they are, because they’re trying to manipulate your narrative about them.

Be doubly suspicious of people who keep telling you what you are and how you are, because they’re trying to manipulate your narrative about you.

5 – Learn to see how trust and sympathy are used by manipulators to trick people into subscribing to their narratives about what’s going on.

Every manipulator uses trust and/or sympathy as a primer for their manipulations, because if you don’t have trust or sympathy for them, you’re not going to mentally subscribe to their stories. This is true of mass media outlets, it’s true of State Department press releases which implore you to have sympathy for the people of Nation X, and it’s true of family members and coworkers. Once you’ve spotted a manipulator, your task is to kill off all of your sympathy for them and your trust in them, no matter how hard they start playing the victim to suck you back in.

6 – Be suspicious of anyone who refuses to articulate themselves clearly.

Word salading is a tactic notoriously used by abusive narcissists, because it keeps the victim confused and unable to figure out what’s going on. If they can’t get a clear handle on what the manipulative abuser is saying, they can’t form their own solid position in relation to it, and the abuser knows this. Insist on lucid communication, and if it’s refused to you, remove trust and sympathy. Apply this to people in your life, to government officials, and to 8chan propaganda constructs.

7 – Familiarize yourself with cognitive biases, the glitches in human cognition which cause us to perceive things in a way that is not rational.

Pay special attention to confirmation bias, the backfire effect, and the illusory truth effect. Humans have an annoying tendency to seek out cognitive ease in their information-gathering and avoid cognitive dissonance, rather than seeking out what’s true regardless of whether it brings us cognitive ease or dissonance. This means we tend to choose what we believe based on whether believing it is psychologically comfortable, rather than whether it’s solidly backed by facts and evidence. This is a weakness in our cognitive wiring, and manipulators can and do exploit it constantly. And, again, be humble enough to know that this means you.

8 – Trust your own understanding above anyone else’s.

It might not be perfect, but it’s a damn sight better than letting your understanding be controlled by narrative managers and dopey partisan groupthink, or by literally anyone else in a narrative landscape that is saturated with propaganda and manipulation. You won’t get everything right, but betting on your own understanding is the very safest bet on the table. It can be intimidating to stand alone and sort out the true from the false by yourself on an instance-by-instance basis, but the alternative is giving someone else authority over your understanding of the world. Abdicating your responsibility to come to a clear understanding of what’s going on in your world is a shameful, cowardly thing to do. Be brave enough to insist that you are right until such time as you yourself come to your own understanding that you were wrong.

9 – Understand that propaganda is the single most overlooked and under-appreciated aspect of our society.

Everyone’s constantly talking about what’s wrong with the world, but hardly any of those discussions are centered around the fact that the public been manipulated into supporting the creation and continuation of those problems by mass media propaganda. The fact that powerful people are constantly manipulating the way we think, act and vote should be at the forefront of everyone’s awareness, not relegated to occasional discussions in fringe circles.

10 – Respect the fact that the science of modern propaganda has been in research and development for over a century.

Think of all the military advancements that have been made in the last century to get an idea of how sophisticated this science must now be. They are far, far ahead of us in terms of research and understanding of the methods of manipulating the human psyche toward ends which benefit the powerful. If you ever doubt that the narrative managers could be advanced and cunning enough to pull off a given manipulation, you can lay that particular doubt to rest. Don’t underestimate them.

11 – Understand that western mass media propaganda rarely consists of full, outright lies.

At most, such outlets will credulously publish the things that are told to them by government agencies which lie all the time. More often, the deception comes in the form of distortions, half-truths, and omissions. Pay more attention to discrepancies in things that are covered versus things that aren’t, and to what they’re not saying.

12 – Put effort into developing a good news-sense, a sense for what’s newsworthy and what’s not.

This takes time and practice, but it lets you see which newsworthy stories are going unreported by the mass media and which non-stories are being overblown to shape an establishment-friendly narrative. When you’ve got that nailed down, you’ll notice “Why are they acting like this is a news story?” and “Why is nobody reporting this??” stories all the time.

13 – Be patient and compassionate with yourself when it comes to developing your narrative navigating skills.

Like literally any skill set, you’ll suck at it for a while. If you learn you’ve been wrong about something, just take in the new information, adjust appropriately, and keep plugging away. Don’t expect to have mastered this thing before you’ve had time to master it. Like anything else, if you put in the hours you’ll get good at it.

14 – Find reliable news reporters who have a good sense for navigating the narrative matrix, and keep track of them to orient yourself and stay on top of what’s going on.

Use individual reporters, not outlets; no outlet is 100 percent solid, but some reporters are pretty close on some specific subjects.

15 – Don’t let paranoia be your primary or only tool for navigating the narrative matrix.

Some people’s only means of understanding the world is to become intensely suspicious of everything and everyone, which is about as useful as a compass which tells you that every direction is north. Spend time in conspiracy and media criticism circles and you’ll run into many such people. Rejecting everything as false leaves you with nothing as true. Find positive tools for learning what’s true.

16 – Hold your worldview loosely enough that you can change it at any time in the light of new information.

But, not so loosely that it can be slapped out of your head by someone telling you what to think in a confident, authoritative tone. As Carl Sagan once said, “It pays to keep an open mind, but not so open your brains fall out.”

17 – Speaking of confident, authoritative tones, be suspicious of confident, authoritative tones.

It’s amazing how much traction people can get with a narrative just by posturing as though they know that what they’re saying is true, whether they’re an MSNBC pundit or a popular conspiracy Youtuber. So many people are just plain faking it, because it works. You run into this all the time in debates on online political forums; people come at you with a supremely confident posture, but if you push them to present their knowledge on the subject and the strength of their arguments, there’s not actually anything there. They’re just accustomed to people assuming they know what they’re talking about and leaving their claims unchallenged, and it completely throws them off when someone doesn’t buy their feigned confidence schtick.

18 – Be aware that sociopaths exist.

There are people who, to varying degrees, do not care what happens to others, and these are the types of people who will use manipulation to get their way whenever it serves them. If you don’t care about truth or other people beyond the extent to which you can use them, then there’s no disincentive to manipulating.

19 – Be aware of projection, and be aware of the fact that it cuts both ways. 

Unhealthy people tend to project their wickedness onto others, while healthy people tend to project their goodness. Don’t let your goodness trick you into thinking there aren’t monsters who will deceive and manipulate you, and don’t let sociopaths project their own sinister motives onto you by telling you how rotten you are. This mixes a lot of good people up, especially in their personal lives. Not everyone is good, and not everyone is truthful. See this clearly.

20 – Be suspicious of those who excessively advocate civility, rules and politeness.

Manipulators thrive on rules and civility, because they know how to manipulate them. Someone who’s willing to color outside the lines and get angry at someone noxious even when they’re acting within the rules makes a manipulator very uncomfortable. Often times those telling you to calm down and behave yourself when you are rightfully upset are manipulators who have a vested interest in getting you to adhere to the rules set they’ve learned to operate within.

21 – Meditation, mindfulness, self-inquiry and other practices are powerful tools which can help you understand your own inner processes.

Which, in turn helps you understand how manipulators can manipulate you, and how they manipulate others. Just be sure that you are using them for this purpose, not for escapism as most “spiritual” types do. You’re trying to become fully aware of what makes you tick mentally, emotionally and energetically; you’re not trying to become some vapid spiritual bliss bunny. The goal isn’t to feel better, the goal is to get better at feeling. Better at consciously experiencing your own inner world.

22 – Be relentlessly honest with yourself about your own inner narratives and the various ways you engage in manipulation.

You can’t navigate your way through the narrative control matrix if you aren’t clear on your own role in it. Look inside and consciously take an inventory.

23 – Understand that truth doesn’t generally move in a way that is pleasing to the ego, i.e. in a way Hollywood scripts are written to appeal to.

Any narrative that points to a Hollywood ending where the bad guy gets karate kicked into lava and the hero gets the girl is manufactured. Russiagate and QAnon are both perfect examples of an egoically pleasing narrative with the promise of a Hollywood ending, either by Trump and his cohorts being dragged off in chains or by the “white hats” overcoming the Deep State and throwing all the Democrats and Never-Trumpers in prison for pedophilia. Ain’t gonna happen, folks.

24 – Try to view the world with fresh eyes rather than with your tired old grown-up eyes which have taught you to see all this as normal.

Hold an image in your mind of what a perfectly healthy and harmonious world would look like; the sharp contrast between this image and the world we have now allows you see through the campaign of the propagandists to normalize things like war, poverty, ecocide, and impotent electoral systems which keep seeing the same government behavior regardless of who people vote for. None of this is normal.

25 – Know that the truth has no political party, and neither do the social engineers.

All political parties are used to manipulate the masses in various ways, and nuggets of truth can and do emerge from any of them. Thinking along partisan lines is guaranteed to give you a distorted view. Ignore the imaginary lines between the parties. You may be certain that your rulers do.

26 – Remain always aware of this simple dynamic: the people who become billionaires are generally the ones who are sociopathic enough to do whatever it takes to get ahead.

This class has been able to buy up near-total narrative control via media ownership/influence, corporate lobbying, think tank funding, and campaign finance, and are thus able to manipulate the public into consenting to agendas which benefit nobody but plutocrats and their lackeys. This explains pretty much every major problem that we are facing right now.

27 – Understand that nations are pure narrative constructs; they only exist to the extent that people agree to pretend that they do.

The narrative managers know this, and they exploit the fact that most of us don’t. Take Julian Assange, perfect example: he was pried out of the embassy and imprisoned by an extremely obvious collaboration between the US, UK, Sweden, Ecuador, and Australia, yet they each pretended that they were acting as separate, sovereign nations completely independently of one another. Sweden pretended it was deeply concerned about rape allegations, the UK pretended it was deeply concerned about a bail violation, Ecuador pretended it was deeply concerned about skateboarding and embassy cat hygiene, the US pretended it was deeply concerned about the particulars of the way Assange helped Chelsea Manning cover her tracks, Australia pretended it was too deeply concerned about honoring the sovereign affairs of these other countries to intervene on behalf of its citizen, and it all converged in a way that just so happened to look exactly the same as imprisoning a journalist for publishing facts. You see this same dynamic constantly, whether it’s with military interventions, trade deals, or narrative-shaping campaigns against non-aligned governments.

28 – Understand that war is the glue which holds the US-centralized empire together.

Without the carrot of military/economic alliance and the stick of military/economic violence, the US-centralized empire would cease to exist. This is why war propaganda is constant and sometimes so forced that glaring plot holes become exposed; it’s so important that they need to force it through, even if they can’t get the narrative matrix around it constructed just right. If they ceased manufacturing consent for the empire’s relentless warmongering, people would lose all trust in government and media institutions, and those institutions would lose the ability to propagandize the public effectively. Without the ability to propagandize the public effectively, our rulers cannot rule.

29 – Remember that when it comes to foreign policy, the neocons are always wrong.

They’ve been so remarkably consistent in this for so long that whenever there’s a question about any narrative involving hostilities between the US-centralized power alliance and any other nation, you can just look at what Bill Kristol, Max Boot and John Bolton are saying about it and believe the exact opposite. They’re actually a very helpful navigation tool in this way.

30 – Notice how the manipulators like to split the population in two and then get them arguing over how they should serve the establishment.

Arguing over whether it’s better to vote Democrat or Republican, arguing over whether it’s better to increase hostilities with Iran and Venezuela or with Syria and Russia, over whether you should support the US president or the FBI, arguing over how internet censorship should happen and whomshould be censored rather than if censorship should happen in the first place. The longer they can keep us arguing over the best way to lick the imperial boot, the longer they keep us from talking about whether we want to lick it at all.

31 – Watch out for appeals to emotion.

It’s much easier to manipulate someone by appealing to their feely bits rather than their capacity for rational analysis, which is why any time they want to manufacture support for military interventionism you see pictures of dead children on news screens everywhere rather than a logical argument for the advantages of using military violence based on a thorough presentation of facts and evidence. You see the same strategy used in the guilt trips they lay on third-party voters; it’s all emotional hyperbole that crumbles under any fact-based analysis, but they use it because it works. They go after your heart strings to circumvent your head.

32 – Pay attention to how much propaganda goes into maintaining the propaganda machine itself.

This is done this because propaganda is just that central to the maintenance of dominant power structures. Much effort is spent building trust in establishment narrative management outlets while sowing distrust in sources of dissent. You’ll see entire propaganda campaigns built around accomplishing solely this.

CAITLIN JOHNSTONE: “The U.S. Government Is Like A Bad Dad”

“And the mother, well like most mothers she’s in charge of managing the stories the family tells about what’s going on. Whenever a neighbor turns up wounded or dead, she’s responsible for telling the children that it was the neighbor’s fault, and their father was only protecting them.”

There’s a house on the block where a large family lives, and it gets pretty abusive in there. The kids hardly ever get to see a doctor and there’s never enough money for them to afford decent clothes or go on holiday, and a disproportionately large number of them get locked in their rooms as punishment for silly, arbitrary offenses which could have been prevented with a little more care and attention. They don’t get out much and they have to spend their free time listening to scripture readings about how exceptional their family is.

Looking at these disheveled, mistreated children, one can’t help wondering what’s going on with their parents. Why aren’t they providing for their kids? Why isn’t money going toward giving their children quality healthcare and education and making sure they have everything they need? Are they poor? Is there some sort of substance abuse problem?

Actually, if you look at their house you can very quickly see where the problem lies. A huge, opaque fence with barbed wire surrounds the yard, and there are many expensive security cameras scanning the scene, facing both outward and inward. All the doors and windows are barred shut and rigged with fancy alarm systems, and there’s a giant stockpile of firearms in the master bedroom.

Every spare moment of his free time, the man of the house is either coming home with an expensive new piece of home security equipment or adjusting and tinkering with the ones he already has. He can’t be bothered with his needy children, who he angrily shoves away whenever they dare approach him asking for things.

“No time for that!” he yells while piling new redundant security systems on top of old redundant security systems. “I’ve got to protect the family from all potential intruders!”

When he’s not doing that, he’s prowling around the block bullying his neighbors. He forces them to join the neighborhood watch, which he controls with an iron fist and runs around the clock. He insists that they submit to his leadership and relate to their neighborhood with the same aggressive hyper-vigilance that he has, and if any of them refuse to bow to his demands, he sets to work on grinding them into compliance.

He sabotages their investments and works to get them fired from their jobs so they won’t have any money. He circulates pernicious rumors about them to undermine the possibility of anyone coming to their aid. He patrols the neighborhood with a large loaded pistol in each hand, and if anyone so much as looks at him funny he runs up to them and points both barrels in their face until they lay down on the ground with their hands behind their head and apologize. With particularly noncompliant neighbors he’ll burst into their house late at night and beat them within an inch of their lives until they agree to his demands, then get all his other neighbors to testify in court that he did it in self defense. Sometimes he’ll even stage events to make it look like a neighbor attacked him, then he’ll go to their house and murder them in cold blood.

He is feared by the entire neighborhood, by his allies and enemies alike. The neighbors who support him only do so because he’s got such tight control over the neighborhood, and they know that their lives will be made easy if they work with him and painful if they work against him. So they do what they need to do to avoid being targeted while secretly wishing that he has a heart attack in his sleep.

“It’s either us or them,” the father often tells his family. “I need to keep everyone around us in line, because there’s no telling who might come after us. We’ve earned a special place in this neighborhood, so it’s our job to lead it.”

Once in a great while, if someone’s feeling particularly brave, they might point out that the father is constantly doing the things he’s afraid of his neighbors doing to him.

“It’s different when I do it!” he always barks in response while adding their name to his personal blacklist. “Our family is exceptional, so we’re the exception to the rules.”

And the mother, well like most mothers she’s in charge of managing the stories the family tells about what’s going on. Whenever a neighbor turns up wounded or dead, she’s responsible for telling the children that it was the neighbor’s fault, and their father was only protecting them.

“Your father loves you,” she coos to them at bedtime. “You should be grateful to him for protecting your life and liberty. It’s good that he’s so strong, because if our family wasn’t in charge it would be the Changs around the corner or the Smirnovs down the road. We should always support everything he does and never question him, and never, ever wish for things to be different. This is the only way that things can ever be. Anyone who tells you otherwise is crazy and evil.”

But the children are growing older, and some of the bigger kids are beginning to open their eyes to what’s going on. They’re beginning to realize that their father is an abusive tyrant and their mother has been lying to them their whole lives. The younger kids are still indoctrinated and put their fingers in their ears when the big kids try to tell them different, but even they are beginning to have their doubts.

And the parents can smell it in the air. They know they’re beginning to lose control over the stories their children tell themselves about what’s going on in their neighborhood, and they know it will be a problem if they don’t nip that in the bud fast. The mother suddenly becomes far more forceful with her storytelling, saying that the Smirnovs are plotting a home invasion any minute now so the family must unite against them. The father begins making stricter and stricter rules about how the children are permitted to speak to one another, locking them in their rooms if they disobey or separating them from the others so they can’t speak their mind.

It remains to be seen if the father will succeed in shoring up control of his family or not, but things have definitely changed, and the whole neighborhood is watching.
