The Big Lie

“If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it.” –Joseph Goebbels

The Big Lie is what the perpetual round the clock blast furnace celebrity mock news Mainstream Corporate Media repeats non stop. The entire purpose of the fake reality the media constructs is to obscure the fact that America is in a state of collapse. The fake news story in the Washington Post attempting to tar the few outlets on the web that poke massive holes in the Big Lie on a daily basis is a Red Alert signal that Corporate Media are in a state of hysteria due to the fact that their absurdly biased reporting throwing everything possible they could to derail Trump and elect Hillary ended in a massive failure.

It was one thing for mainstream media to have failed to prevent Trump from winning the Republican nomination. In a way that was not such a big worry as the calculation, I imagine, was that Trump being the most unlikable and patently flaky know-nothing to have ever run on the Republican ticket this would be the best possible outcome as an opponent for the policy wonk Hillary Clinton to face up against and knock off.

The failure of the Propaganda Machine to manage public opinion reliably throughout the 20th and early 21st century now looks to have blown a fuse. As media coverage is all over the map as to how to present Trump, not to mention wackos like Sarah Palin and Ann Coulter bailing on Der Trumpenführer while Bob Dole gets a pretty penny for putting him on the phone with Taiwan, leading to a kind of minor “international crisis” that could be hysterically played for a day.

Who can even follow it at this point, the excitement and hysteria are so breathtaking. It certainly is the end of America as we know it. But that was already the case well before Trump was elected. Not that anybody has been paying attention outside of the few commentators in alternative media. But even those few voices have to be labelled Russian Propaganda by the MSM, lest the crack in the Big Lie appearing there widens and the entire dam collapses.

Anyway, as I’ve been saying that it’s all over for America for a while now, this suddenly heavy influx of pieces I read everywhere about the decline and fall hardly strike me as new. I’m also aware that few to no people inside the MSM Lie Machine are reading any of it because I’ve verified that with doing this blog for the last 5 years. I mean by this the art world, as it’s the art world who are the prime carrier of the MSM Big Lie Propaganda featuring all the exciting Entertainment and Brilliant Art Ideas and TV shows and HBO specials and Kanye West events.

As Herr Goebbels also pointed out, the more that folks repeat the Big Lie they all eventually come to believe in it themselves. Not to mention that as Orwell said: “The further a society drifts from the truth, the more it will hate those that speak it.” I’ve felt the hate, believe me. Anyway, so what? Doesn’t stop me working or writing. I’m just doing my think. Isn’t that what art is supposed to be about? The vision thing?

As far as the Big Lie goes, it’s not fooling anybody at all who is outside it looking in. Thinking people are doing some acute writing about where we are and where we are headed. How much time we have until meltdown is uncertain. A lot of guesswork there. I would think a few art people would want to pay attention to their country blowing itself to pieces from a detached perspective rather than hysterically participating in it all and trying to see how far up the clown car they climb before it goes over the cliff. But oh well. At least nobody has accused me of writing Russian propaganda. So far, anyway.

Here’s another one of them well worth reading.

US power will decline under trump says futurist who predicted soviet collapse.

As the piece states, Galtung has also accurately predicted the 1978 Iranian revolution; the Tiananmen Square uprising of 1989, the economic crises of 1987, 2008 and 2011; and even the 9/11 attacks. A pretty impressive record and obviously somebody worth reading, unlike wasting ones time reading any of the Times or Post editorials that once again have been proven by reality to be completely out to lunch. It’s quite amazing how the purveyors of the Big Lie, who are routinely wrong in their predictions invariably call those who are accurate in their predictions “doomsayers” and “fringe crazies.” And even more astonishing, the masses believe it!… Boy are they in for a surprise. It will be even more exciting than the Superbowl and the new season on HBO together I imagine! I can’t wait.

And fortunately, for those who don’t want to watch things fall apart in real time the great new virtual reality helmets I notice people sticking on their heads in the Microsoft shop at the local mall are ready to go this Xmas. As wackjob Tim Leary said, “Turn On. Tune In. Drop Out.” Or was that Drop Acid? O Brave New World that has such people in’t!

    I didn’t even know you were Russian. Yeah, the fake news about fake news. I wrote a post about it as well on my Russian propaganda art blog. Nice writing, by the way.

    You too, mate. It’s hard to keep up with all the incredible surreal and bizarre shit that the media is coming up with. I really think the election of Trump has severed a lot of these people from reality. Their minds just can’t comprehend that it happened. Much less taking any responsibility for losing to a wack job nightmare like Trump. Hey, I don’t want to believe it either.

    Here’s a great piece summarizing just how the Democrats are descending into cloud cuckoo conspiracy theories. And who is going to verify whether the conspiracy charges are true? The CIA, of course. They’ve always been a model of truth and decency since the Cold War first began. Given all the expertise they’ve gained fighting those Commies, they’re certain to have it right that not only is Putin behind stealing the election he was no doubt feeding Trump the questions before the debates so he could come up with catchy phrases like “Lock her up!” and “It’s all just words, folks.”

    Hard to argue with that. Old Fred de Boer sure has nailed the HRC & DNC madness in this one. Are they really going into Tea Party land? No way they’ll admit to making a single mistake and totally misreading the electorate, not to mention stiffing Bernie and his followers by not granting them any seats around the table of Great Political Minds that gave us Hillary and Bill. Yes. Just go on doing everything you’ve done since Bill turned the party corporate. It’s working just great.
