Deadliest Terrorist Group

The CIA just
casually discussed sinking a
boat full of Cuban refugees and planting bombs in Miami and
blaming Castro, but you’re bat shit crazy if you suspect such
agencies may have had similar discussions about other
geostrategic situations and decided to go through with it.
There’s more public
criticism of ordinary people taking ivermectin than there is of
planet-dominating power structures driving humanity to
Nobody who supports
internet censorship does so because they’re worried they
themselves might consume dangerous words and believe them, it’s
always to protect other people from
dangerous words. It’s about the most megalomaniacal, emotionally
stunted desire anyone could possibly have.
They see themselves as
responsible adults who can be trusted to independently sort out
truth from falsehood, but see other people as infants who cannot
be trusted to do this. This is nothing other than garden variety
Internet censorship via
monopolistic government-tied tech corporations isn’t just a
problem because of free speech issues, it’s a problem because
the way it’s applied is completely uneven and power-serving:
politicians and the mass media circulate disinformation
constantly without ever being censored. It’s not just silencing
people, it’s actually shifting power upwards.
There is no path
forward for humanity on this planet without complete female
Imagine if the world’s
deadliest terrorist group got their hands on drones and cruise
missiles and nuclear warheads and aircraft carriers and circled
the planet with hundreds of military bases and began waging wars
and destroying any country which disobeyed their dictates.
No, Texas conservatives
aren’t like the Taliban. No, US government authoritarianism
isn’t like China or North Korea. You know what it’s like? It’s
like America. It says so much that the most corrupt and
destructive nation on earth keeps comparing its homegrown
depravity to foreign nations.

It’s crazy how there
are guys whose whole entire job is trying to get large number of
people killed by mass military violence and we just let that be
a thing like it’s a perfectly legitimate way for someone to be.
“Hey why does that
mustache guy keep trying to get large numbers of people
“Oh he’s just one of
those war starty guys.”
“What?? Why are there
war starty guys??”
“I dunno. Isn’t that
normal? I just assumed it was normal to have war starty guys.”
Every single soldier
who died in Afghanistan died in vain. Don’t make up sugary fairy
tales about it, just stop letting it happen.
Are soldiers working
under the US empire the worst people in the world? No. But in
terms of moral standing you’d have to rank someone who murders
foreigners on behalf of imperialists and war profiteers below
most of the people in your average prison.
“If it wasn’t us waging
all these wars and killing all those people it’d be someone
else” sounds very much like the sort of thing an abusive tyrant
There’s no good reason
to respect the analysis of anyone who thinks China’s behavior on
the world stage is worse than or equally as bad as America’s.
Australia is the
only so-called democracy in the world which has
no bill of rights of any kind.
Most people are unaware of this, including most Australians.
What you’re seeing in Australia is simply what happens when you
add a pandemic response on top of a nation with no foundational
legal protection from government overreach. That’s why our Covid
measures are so notoriously harsh relative to other western
Modern gods are
corporations and banks, faceless inhuman entities whose agendas
of growth and conquest supercede even the wishes of their own
executives. Our gods are insatiable devourers controlled by no
one. Our gods have no heads.
At a time when our
species is hurtling toward its own demise we ought to be coming
together and working in unison to avert disaster, and it says so
much about the power of propaganda that we are instead doing the
All of humanity’s
problems are ultimately due to a misperception of the way things
Propaganda causes us to
misperceive reality in a way that benefits establishment power
structures, so we don’t rise up and use the power of our numbers
to put an end to the ecocidal, omnicidal status quo which
oppresses and exploits us.
Advertising causes us
to misperceive our own bodies and the source of real
contentment, leading to the obsessive consumption habits
necessary for turning the gears of capitalism.
Ego causes us to
misperceive our own experience of consciousness and the
information which enters our minds through the senses, leading
to the suffering and dysfunction which ultimately underlies all
abuses in our world.
What we need, then, is
clear seeing, both outwardly and inwardly. An end to government
secrecy and the mass-scale manipulations which distort our
perception of reality. An end to restrictions on psychedelic
tools which help people behold their inner processes with
lucidity. A greatly elevated prioritization of self-honesty and
self-reflection to help us see through the ego’s illusions.
We can’t move toward
health until we can see where we’re going.
