the split

crossing the chasm

EarthBlog News



As we move ahead into 2011, one theme presented is a matrix like split in western societies, particularly in the US. This split revolves around a corporate media portrayal of the world where reality is landscaped by an ideology, and by an actual reality that increasingly diverges from that untouchable paradigm of media concocted “truth”.

In this synthesized version of reality revolving around ideals such as fan worship, celebrity gossip and political correctness, independent or critical thinking is discouraged. Inconvenient events are to be quickly forgotten or deconstructed into an unrelated chain of events.

There is now rarely any mention of the two wars the US is currently fighting, one being the longest in US history. There are no images  of Detroit on TV, where garbage collection has now ceased and trash is piled up in the streets 30 feet high. There are no live video reports of 8,000 formerly middle class families now living in the woods in tents in three counties surrounding Orlando Florida. There is no mention of miles of sub surface oil slicks poisoning our air and water.  There are no warnings about toxic seafood. There is no discussion about lives and generations old ways of life that have been destroyed by greed and corruption.  85 percent of US college graduates are returning home after graduation jobless and saddled up with a lifetime student loan debt but you have to read about that outside the corporate medias realm.  The truth has become bad for business.

From the corporate media there are instead sound bites, bright lights, smiling faces, and corporate media news lies built around an ideological and political agenda.  Anyone in the media who fails to dutifully execute the party line propaganda is quickly un personed. Any high profile figure who dares to contradict the party line encounters a vindictive character assassination by the people who formulate everything you think you know.  The “experts” they promote are professors of fraud, quite often of the now thoroughly debunked Keynesian economic theory kind.

There is a new elephant in the room, and it is the schism, the chasm, this huge divide; the split between what people are supposed to be thinking according to monolithic power obsessed media moguls, and what’s really going on. Already in 2010 several surveys showed that a majority of Americans no longer believe the government even has the continued authority to govern. The approval rating of the people’s representatives has been languishing barely into double digits for years, and over 2 ostensibly different regimes. The standard of living of the average citizen in the west has taken a nosedive, with Americans being particularly hard hit. The banks control an ever larger share of national GDP, yet they do not make anything or provide any societal benefit. Instead they provide enslavement of a nation via credit creation. The elitist banking class are wholly parasitic by nature and yet they run the world. They exist solely by skimming money from other people, or by creating money out of nothing then collecting interest. It is no wonder ways of life and standards of living of ordinary people are being sacrificed. There is a finite wealth in the world and it is increasingly being allocated to the banking class, by the banking class, at the expense of everyone else in the world.

So today there is one segment of society worldwide who still unquestioningly takes the big government party line dope and manufactured government statistics, and one segment where the machine has lost some or all of it’s credibility. The manufactured version of reality now bumps up against what is actually happening in the world. This group of believers and non believers are encouraged to fight among themselves as the divide between the truth and media professed reality grows.

The group of believers who erroneously assume that the government and banking class operate in their best interest continually shrinks however as they are personally touched by the fraud, deceit and corruption which are the three pillars of the emerging plutocracy.  As we go forward, the lies are already out in the open for anyone willing to open their eyes.

We have already seen austerity inspired riots and labor strikes in Iceland, Ireland, Greece, Italy, the UK and France. The increasingly large group of non believers are rioting over a banking class takeover and imposed austerity, theft of their formerly guaranteed pensions or sale of national assets to the banking elites.

Simultaneously, the US is quietly being suffocated. The people are dulled by prozac and flouride. They are drowned in an ocean of celebrity gossip, fansmanship and genetically engineered food proven to kill or injure the unsuspecting mammals who consume it. For the remaining believers, their entire reality is now rooted in deceit and lies, in ignorance and racism;  in religious ideology or media inspired hate;  in a left vs right smokescreen. Everything they believe, everything they think they know, is mostly rooted in lies, propaganda and disinformation. The plutocrats believe they are acting as divine gods on this planet and that the ignorant masses are sub human beasts to be told noble lies and used until they are used up. The chasm, the split, is the gaping wound between truth and illusion.

There is a revolving door between the oligarchs and the government.  Corporate rock star CEO’s now endeavor to patent nature or make a killing on war while looting the corporations they run. Bankruptcy is a tool used to shaft the employees, creditors and shareholders.  One hand shakes the other in a corrupt corporate America protected and in some cases financed by taxpayers themselves. The private for profit banking system owns the treasury and exploits it’s control of the people’s labor via the creation of unlimited debt. The people, the useless eaters are mostly apathetic, detached and clueless as to the forces shaping their own destiny.  They are in effect the enemy of the plutocrats. They are to be placated and entertained; used and used up.

The man elected to change all of this increased the size of the wars he was elected to end. Instead of promised change, there has been more of the same. More lies, more greed, more corruption, more skimming of the wealth from the people to the banking elite and plutocrats.  These oligarchs hide behind bulletproof glass and fly learjets to secret meetings. They skim the people’s wealth and host lavish parties where the cost exceeds the lifetime income of many people in this world.

Everything that has happened since the people’s hope for change came on board has benefited not the population of the world, but this small group of financial elitists who own the entire political body, set the policy and make the rules. They rule from behind a curtain of fraud, deceit, corruption amid a sponsored media festival of lies. The real brokers of money, power and policy create money out of thin air and operate in the shadows, off limits from any focus or disclosure in the media empires they own or control. The entire political body are but a hapless host of stewards on a ship of fools, cowering in fear of the media and the money which owns and sponsors them all.

The media vetted so called “leader of the free world” is a powerless obedient mascot dishing out tyranny and loyal only to the money interests who own him. He controls nothing and is told what to think and what to do by corporate lobbyists and special interests. Should he wander from his assigned script, a character assassination would be promptly performed by the corporate media who he relies on to maintain his power.

The propaganda is all propelled into public consciousness from an increasingly monolithic global mega media propaganda machine which operates as a privatized version of state sponsored media. Debates are framed. PR and ideological opinions are bought and sold then disguised as news. Lies are sold as the truth. Ignorance is sold as a virtue.

With this tremendous loss of trust in the media and government worldwide, on comes the head of the US department of Homeland Security via a wide screen tv at the local wal mart. The attorney general warns you to be very afraid. The TSA is strip searching you and your children. Random shakedowns on the DC subway.  More rules. More restrictions. More forfeited rights. More permissions being revoked. Anyone critical of the emerging elitist plutocracy finds themselves to be the enemy. As the propaganda migrates to the internet, we have TSA shills trolling the blog comments and a 2 billion dollar PR budget for the government to propagandize the people with their own money.

Out of the ashes of a complete loss of trust and a 2 billion dollar propaganda budget is born a new modern day robin hood wearing white. He does whirlwind media tours. He publishes credible leaks that damage everyone except the people in charge. The people are like clay. They are easily molded and shaped. What they believe to be true is subject to what they are taught to believe by the oligarchs who control the media and the creation of money.

So the world today is a giant theater production where the BBC and FOX news release 20 minutes in advance the news that WTC7 has collapsed on the day of the New Pearl Harbor. In 2010 we have Joe Lieberman telling us why we needn’t be concerned that WTC7 collapsed defying a host of laws of physics in the process or that every law regarding a crime scene investigation was violated. There is no mention in the media machine of peer reviewed scientific papers showing high technology high explosive residue in the dust.  There is no mention of any of the important information people need to know to make informed decisions.

The single event that changed everything has proven to be a lie which now has to be protected. An ideological agenda has been put forth. America has been subverted from the inside by the banking class. The people’s wealth has been destroyed or is being confiscated. In Orwellian doublespeak the ever larger group of non believers are labeled as domestic dissidents, terrorists, radicals, and extremists when the people in charge are the ones who are all of those things.

Thomas Jefferson warned us it would happen. He knew this because the founders of the US were revolting against an aristocratic banking class authoritarian rule by the same banking aristocracy lineages who have now subverted and anonymously control the once free USA.

British tyranny via control of the money has caught up with America once again in the 21st century. The now global banking aristocracy is attempting to shift the wealth of the world to itself through a shell game where assets of countries are traded for notes manufactured out of thin air backed only by the labor of the same citizens forced to accept the fraud. This is a world where armies are policy enforcement or asset acquisition tools of the plutocrats. This is a world where the people providing the labor to fund the machine are to be used until they are used up. Their toil and their labor is only to fund the lavish lifestyle of a plutocratic elite.

So as we begin 2011, we move headlong into a world where the real truth is becoming nearly impossible to discern. The need for protection is blanketing and permeating every aspect of the lives of ordinary people. Governments living off of printing presses are getting larger, more authoritarian, more dangerous and more bankrupt. The world moves towards a single currency with few alternatives where global power and control can be consolidated. The people all suffer. Standards of living decline. Real wealth decreases. Social problems, crime and drug use increase. Western society continues a slow rot, a decay, amid an insolvent banking system that owns a media wing from which the false flag terror propaganda is catapulted by the oligarchs. The giant suffocating squid tells you to spy on your neighbors and be very afraid.

As an ordinary participant in a western world society, the party is over. Your former way of life is being revoked under the guise of an endless war waged by criminals wielding fake terror and posing as your savior and protectors. There is nothing you can do about it except to get out of the way.

      thoroughly debunked Keynesian economic theory kind.

      There is a new elephant

      There is only one thing wrong with Keynesian, “It has never been tried.”! Never been properly applied? Have the debunk-ers of Keynesian never studied calculus? Is what you say about America the Beautiful quite easy to say about any regime, past or present? Is your very complete description only one perspective, only one interpretation of reality within our country? If this dark perspective were the important perspective would you now be desperately trying to catch your breath up under a water-board? Writhing within the iron-maiden? sky-jumping without a parachute? Bunge-dumping without a cord? What Hitler would have done with you? What Stalin would have done to you? Did he do it to 11 million Russians? Would one more have made much difference to him?

      Is the proof within the pudding

      I suspect there are a lot of people who do not have the intellectual capacity/education/background to really understand this essay because he necessarily skims over some important background items, but for those who do it is very powerful.

    Craig, these elite controllers care less about who is aware of their criminality, greed, ambitions or plans. They see themselves as untouchable by over 300 million citizens who are seen as ignorant, controllable and impotent. You may be correct in declaring that all we can do is to step aside. I understand that there are over 25 million Americans now living outside the U.S. and more moving out every month. Other than moving toward the survivalist mentality and methodology I see little else to do. Even those like Jesse Ventura, Chuck Norris, Keith Olberman and their kin seem of no threat to these power elite. we are in deep dodo Craig. Your have delivered a powerful statement of reality. Now we need a to do list of what can be done to protect our families. thanks.

      a start would be to own gold bullion or possibly the stocks of gold mining companies in a secure account in a very solvent foreign bank. at the very least own some precious metals related asset (allocated bullion or mining shares). look behind the msm to its agenda. possibly consider ron paul as a presidential candidate.

    The MSM has nothing but contempt for the american people, that’s for sure. I think the dumbing down of the population is part of the agenda. I know people who are absolutely hopeless from an overdose of corporate media. Did you ever see the guy from clockwork orange? Anyway, great read. Honest, thoughtful. More than we’re ever going to get out of the Washington Post or the NYT.
