Mass Delusion amidst Mass Disinformation and Fear-Based Distraction 

Today, three of us had a very provocative conversation here at this hostel in the middle of nowhere ‘Now Here’ in Portugal; a Portuguese guy, an Argentinian IT worker I’ve come to know in the last week and myself. We talked about how the media uses fear to manipulate people, how Pharma companies have lied about and manipulated the entire world towards feeling fear and guilt about vaccines (along with truths about Covid) and how one very inexpensive and effective cure Ivermectin has been quickly denounced and silenced. We talked about cell phone addictions and ultra materialism….and that many of the political satirists, from George Carlin years ago foreseeing how the government and media are puppets to multinationals who are actually the elite in control. 

The Portuguese guy says that it’s almost the same as an authoritarian dictatorship, except that a tyrannical ruler has a face you can point to and blame, whereas this convoluted machine of money and power driving people to busily occupy themselves with just trying to survive with high costs and who are complacently consuming social media (addictively and incessantly) wind up not really questioning or even being consciously aware of the degree to which they are being controlled.

The NY Times has had one after another super frightening article in the last days, yesterday about Philadelphia being rife with guns and shootings, more than NYC or LA. And today an article about a MASSIVE PERFECT STORM that will at any time hit California. Not earthquakes, droughts or fires, but a brewing mega storm with water building from Hawaii, to the extent of the Mississippi river in the sky…and that when it hits the mountains of CA, it will bring biblical rains. This was in today’s paper. So though it may very well be true, the media does its job of keeping people at a high pitch of fear and dread, because this is an excellent vehicle to control people.

The one guy was saying that George Carlin was so right on…and yet few people are aware enough to even question or seek to know. He and I have seen families, sitting with each parent looking down at their phone while their toddlers are acting out, simply seeking to get attention from a parent who sits there entranced, absent and unavailable to properly give he child attention.

I just made a list of (some) of the political satirists from whom I’ve been enlightened about issues, plus another Brit I hadn’t yet heard of till today, Ricky Gervais. If you haven’t listened to Russel Brand, Bill Maher, Trevor Noah, John Oliver, Jon Stewart, George Carlin, Bill Hicks, Hasan Minhaj…I suggest that you do.

They discuss truths in depth, which mainstream media averts talking about. And the three wealthiest men in the world – Jeff Bezos, Elon Musk and Richard Branson – who each coordinated their rocket launches with their massive carbon footprint and complete audacity to ignore the global warming occurring that is causing the massive droughts, floods, mass extinction, as if they are above it all and act with impunity with absolutely no regard for what is occurring on the earth – rather than using their money and power to instigate massive action to begin to heal the world, they are guilty for soaring mass delusion. 

What can we do about it? It seems not much. Except that the more that people become aware that our financial system is perpetuating our demise –

But as long as people are sleep walking and bent over looking down at their phones rather than looking up and speaking personally with one another, nothing will change.

COP26 | Facing Existential Crisis–We Can Turn this Around if We Choose | COP26 Backdoor | Kiss the Ground

Wow, here is a super powerful speech by António Guterres, the United Nations secretary general, calling on world leaders to escalate climate action, equating the world’s current track to “digging our own graves” and “treating the earth as our toilet”, during the opening ceremony of the COP26 summit in Glasgow.

The speech by the UN secretary general, very simply states accurate points.

If, as a leader of a wealthy country of the global north, you can’t hear what he is saying nor respond with a conscience to FINALLY change what your priorities are, you should step down.

We need leaders who are there for all of us and for biodiversity, not greedy cowards who only want to pocket money from the BIG Oil, Ag and Pharma industries, etc.

António Guterres, the United Nations secretary general,

Remarks by H.E. Mr. Abdulla Shahid, President of the 76th session of the United Nations General Assembly

Glasgow,

October 31,  2021

“Excellencies,

Ladies and Gentlemen,

Allow me to be candid, for you are my family:

We are facing an existential crisis

We have the capacities and resources to address this crisis,

But we are simply not doing enough.

We must be honest about this, with ourselves, with each other, and with the rest of the world.

We have had decades to argue the facts about climate change, about the power of renewables, about the fine details of monitoring or cost-sharing.

Yet, we have still failed to act with the conviction and determination required.

That may be a hard truth, but it is the truth.

Another truth: we are entirely capable of turning this around, if we so choose.”

“My friends,

We have the science.

We have the resources.

We agree on the urgency.

What then is holding us back?

Only one variable remains… and it is us.

We have to make the choice to address climate change.

We have to choose the hard but necessary actions.

We have to listen to the science and, increasingly, our global population, who are demanding action.

 ……. We have run out of excuses. 

It is time to do the right thing.

In the words of Frankie the dinosaur, who addressed the General Assembly, 

let us not choose EXTINCTION.

Let us work together as one global family and use the capacities and capabilities at hand to do what needs to be done.

Let us get this done.”
