“To be is to be deceived.” -George Berkeley
This week I have revisited a lot of research I did years ago on mind control, MKULTRA and other programs, with a fresh perspective. I find that from a research vantage point, delving into something, then moving on to something else for a few years, and then returning to the original issue provides new insights and revelations. In literary theory, the practice is similar, as you “chew” the material you’ve digested, returning to it again after some reflection. This has led to some really fascinating revelations about the nature of propaganda and psychology.
Semiotics is the philosophy of signs and linguistics, and can be extended in a broad sense to all reality. When you are driving down the road and read a sign, you are using semiotics. When you walk down an alley and see a fat broad with a slutty outfit that propositions you, and you surmise she is a hooker, you are using semiotics. In short, because all reality is a process of receiving patterns and symbols, the manipulation of signs and symbols is thus what rules reality. In order to break free from the “matrix” of propaganda and faux reality foisted upon you, it requires simply a commitment to truth.
For most people, there is an assumption that to have a vested interest in the system is the means to get ahead. Why worry about propaganda or GMO food, when such questions could lead to immediate discomfort. After all, the trendy snots at the coffee shop that drive BMWs might think you’re off if you were to question the status quo. But it’s important to keep in mind that neither the Baptist pastor nor the trendy coffee house shit really escape or get ahead by choosing to follow the herd off the cliff. Where I live happens to be one of the worst areas of gentrified hipsterdom, where there is a complete and total disconnect from reality. In their orgy of pseudo-individualism and green environmental droolery, the majority of these pill-head zombies have children with cancer and autism, failed multiple marriages, miserable jobs and empty lives of the silliest side of nihilistic abandon. And this is the middle and upper middle class! The lower classes are even worse, lacking the basic necessities of existence apart from Gubmint, Inc’s teat. Read more of this post
