These attitudes you have adopted – I know they comfort you. You are indifferent and incurious about the important events of our times. You are smug about it, thinking yourself wise to be so. But I must advise you that from a distance your attitude is indistinguishable from stupidity.
Such is the nature of our society that people actually capable of critical thought are stigmatized as being the dumber ones, perhaps even suffering mental illness.
The phrase “conspiracy theorist” originated in the bowels of the CIA in the late 1960’s in response to a large part of the population not believing the official story of the murder of John F. Kennedy. The phrase itself is a PSYOP, or …
“[a] planned operation to convey selected information and indicators to audiences to influence their emotions, motives, objective reasoning, and ultimately the behavior of governments, organizations, groups, and individuals.”
We are governed by PSYOPS. If you, the reader, automatically assume that “conspiracy theorists” are wrong and dumb and mentally deficient, you’ve been successfully gamed. You are the victim of a PSYOP.
We are all tested from birth. The school systems is designed to survey the herd and pick out the ones capable of certain tasks – soldiers, workers, bureaucrats. The culling process does not seek “intelligence*” so much as useful abilities. Based on testing we are routed to various occupations even as we imagine we self-select our careers.
The idea that our schooling system teaches us critical thinking skills is absurd. That is not why it is there. If tasked to do so, it could perform that service. In fact, exclusive schools used to train our privileged youth do indeed teach these skills. But the leadership class does not want a general public capable of critical thought. Quite the opposite. Those of us who survive schooling and who do indeed learn to use our minds in a critical fashion are set aside for derision and abuse.
It may appear that I am engaged in contradiction, at once saying that the public is not capable of drawing correct inferences from information, and at the same time that the majority of the public does indeed disbelieve the official story regards the JFK hit.
It is true that a majority of the public does not buy the official story. It is also true that majority of the public, even knowing the official story to be false, does not grasp the staggering implications that naturally follow.
As a result, while knowledge of a lie is widespread, the implications of that lie are bottled up, and we go on with business as usual. We suffer the same fools in our political class, unaware of the real power that stands behind them pulling their strings. We endure criminal activities on a massive scale pulled off in broad daylight by our military class. We suffer from advertising and psychological manipulation from the business world. And we allow the news media to keep it all bottled up by means of distraction.
To those of us who grasped the significance of the murder of JFK, it appears that the task of the overlords has gotten easier. Events like 9/11, Boston and most recently Charlotte are pulled off with frightening ease. Cover stories around 9/11, for instance, don’t withstand five seconds critical examination and yet stand unchallenged by the majority of the public.
Reading is key, of course, not to be told what to think, but to gather raw data and make critical connections. There’s never enough, and we never know all we should know, perhaps jumping to conclusions based on inadequate data.
With the Boston false flag operation, for example, it is easy to see from photographs that the injuries were fake and the participants mere actors, but wait a minute! WHY do we have access to such high quality photography? Why was it not bottled up at the source? Surely those who pulled of this operation were able to keep control of the images. That was the whole point!
There is a famous photograph of three ‘tramps” being led from Dealey Plaza by a fake cop on 11/22/63. Two are suspected to be E. Howard Hunt and Charles Harrington, Woody’s dad, a professional hit man. But wait a minute … agents of various stripes monitored everyone in the Plaza that day, and every available photograph was confiscated. Most never saw light of day. Yet we have that set of photos, clear and concise, taken by a professional photographer, and released to the public. Why?
It has to do with intelligence – private researchers have uncovered a tremendous body of data, enough to draw conclusion about the who and why of that day. But there exist smarter people, drawn from our best schools and trained in deceit on a high level. So the class of curious citizens, those capable of dealing with the complexities of the major events of our times, are systematically diddled by people of even higher intelligence. The photographs are real enough, but the inferences deliberately misleading.
No way out, you say? Hall of mirrors? Puzzle palace? Perhaps. What else to do with our lives – stop thinking? That is not an option.
*I have seen a list which appears to be to be comprehensive detailing nine types of intelligence. Our testing regime focuses only on three, logical-mathematical, linguistic, and spatial.
