Whenever some inconvenient facts surface the media introduces this using the phrase “conspiracy theory” and then reinforces the mental implant a few lines later. Official narratives aren’t called conspiracy theory (though they are often, literally, ‘theory about conspiracy’). This term has been deliberately crafted as a “thought stopper”, a kind of loaded linguistic implant. This is classic linguistic manipulation straight out of Propaganda 101. Control the language — control the thoughts. Like:

  • ” The EU brings peace” – Fact: we never had such time of multiple crises.
  • The Euro has no Alternatives and will stay infinitely. Fact: A sick currency creates a sick Europe.
  • “Hussein has WMD”  –  Fact: none were found.
  • “Assad used chemical weapons” – Fact: chemical weapons were used.
  • “Yanukovich sent snipers” – Fact: shots were fired.


The key question always is:

Cui – bono?


Not Russia – they had their man in place.
Not the US – they didn’t want or need the “collateral damage”. Not the US – they didn’t want or need the “collateral damage”. Not by purpose maybe, but US poured 5 Bn. to right wing thugs. That pays for a lot of things. Not the Ukrainian ‘soft’ opposition – they are the main ‘victims’. I guess that leaves a far-right Ukrainian nationalist faction hoping to create chaos and to kill the Feb. 21 deal.

I guess that leaves a far-right Ukrainian nationalist faction hoping to create chaos. Similar than in Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan.

There are a lot of people following the situation in the Ukraine through the news media AND doing their own research, analyzing the data, and able to come to their own discrete individual conclusions all around the world.

This could be one the the biggest impacts of the ongoing digital / information revolution. Anyone agree, or seen any thoughtful articles on this concept? think these are pivotal days. Maybe naively : I don’t mean this in a negative way, I don’t think we are at the brink of WWIII, more in the awareness sense, like a waking up. That if one thing is clear, whatever anyone’s opinions or sides, that mammoth politics don’t work anymore, and exactly how clueless all the the major players who ‘ should be in charge’ are really. but I believe more ordinary usually apolitical people, even in the EU are at least waking up to the fact that no, really, you cannot blindly trust and ignore all the discrepancies, the things that happen and the reactions don’t add up and are too often in important issues just too different nowadays. Iraq and Afghanistan were too far and too difficult to understand and were easy to disengage from. Israel and the Palestinians, well, that’s deadlock as long as we can remember. But this feels different, because, well (we are the same generation) and for everyone our age and older, and even younger to an extent, it appeals to all of Europe’s and Russia’ s common and divided history and we think we recognise the patterns and the players or those that they are imitating from the past, but we don’t really, we just know the ” codes” . We are back then to what we think we know. Only: It’s not like it was because we have, although everyone is shaped by their backgrounds, become individuals, and we do have access to direct communication (however volatile and spotty) and direct information from different sources and we could actually think for ourselves…

If it is about the EU, Euro, NSA or Snowden or any of these things, it still seemed remote for most people in their daily lives but this is about earthbound things not cyberspace and virtual money. Clueless politicians, clueless press all run by money cluster. So I think these are important times in a different way.
