Today’s mainstream narratives are promoted as gospel. The sop called the Fifth Estate, press and media, is no more than an propaganda bullhorn for the latest edicts from mostly criminal government and vested interest lobbies.
That any other views not fitting the established narrative are labelled all sorts of things, including Fake News or most surgically, Conspiracy Theories, becomes an abhorrence in any society wishing to call itself free, seeking any vestige of democracy and freedom of speech.
There are those who know the origins of this loathsome epithet. For those unfamiliar conspiracy theory/ists was a term created specifically by the loathsome, criminally pernicious CIA, to shut down any other view or opinion following the assassination of the US President JF Kennedy, that challenged the official line. Since then it has been used, unremittingly, by mainstream media, politicians and their ilk to denigrate, dispose of and negate anything questioning the official narrative. Many today have no idea of its origins and utility. With gay abandon, as a cheap shot across the bows of social media, they use it to cover up their own cognitive dissonance, cowardly bending to authority or merely to plaster over their abundant ignorance.
When an alternative viewpoint, thesis or argument is offered, the fury at instigating debate, no matter how heated, is fired off? In these times it is too easy to remotely diss, insult and lacerate another’s view, with zero perceived comeback from our virtual rooms and armchairs. It is an approach favoured by the coward, the ill informed and the downright quisling collaborative.
On one hand we have a society programmed to be triggered by offence. The self righteous virtual signallers who place their rights way above a long list of so called causes. Their self obsessive insistence that their ‘rights’ are somehow so much more important than just being accepted for what they prefer to self identify with, creates a toxic them and us which, as we all know becomes one more dividing line splitting the unity of humanity.
On the other we have focused intent to discombobulate, divide and deride.
It is well known something repeated enough becomes, not only a belief but also a cudgel to bash and stamp out opposition. Conspiracy Theory has become one huge such gigantic cudgel.
Within a dysfunctional society the like we have allowed develop, such tools to stamp out rational and intelligent discussion is programmed, propagandised and peddled as the weapon of choice for so many in the media and power.
It is a mark of deep shame and pity that more do not rage against this injustice. So much energy goes into causes that promote downright stupidity, ignorance and compliance. So many end up being wearied to the point of apathy and ‘can’t care less‘ syndrome. So many bodies and minds lie across the continents, dead from the neck up yet professing sentient life.
Herein are the true Zombies. This Zombie State has been nurtured by collective willingness to roll over and comply. The added gifts of technological hand held mind killers, taken as payment for compliance, so readily agreed and accepted, merely supercharges the societal ignorance.
These are the fallow fields where Martial Law, Totalitarian Overlording and Fascism come together in that perfect storm. Global hegemony has never seemed closer nor more attainable to the criminal, self serving classes, whose slavering lust for power over all has been their wet dream and goal for centuries.
Any organ of independent thought and word demands people stand up to every utterance of that spurious epithet, Conspiracy Theory(ist). It must be challenged for the pathetic impotence it is. Its use, exposing each hollow tenet of its clamouring self righteousness rebutted every time. Facts, truth, inconvenient as they are, demand being heard through a rainbow of viewpoints.
The most pernicious conspiracies are committed daily by the very organs declaring anything not to their agenda, as fake, CT or lies.
When you carry a stacked pack of all these ingredients it is imperative to point the finger, distract and accuse others, so that your own participation and actions using these means are as shaded as everything you seek to protect and promote.
Words matter. Words are powerful. Words are weapons.
In a society diminishing the quality and right usage of words, their power ultimately diminishes the users, their own innate power and pertinence in a world of difference, diversity and evolutionary development.
There are many things set up to kill, staunch and disempower the masses – Conspiracy Theory is right up their with the worst of them.
In the beginning was the Word!
