The Real Conspiracy: Notes From The Edge Of The Narrative Matrix

Some conspiracy-type people say the world is messed up because we’re ruled by illuminati or reptilians, but I’m way more out there than that: I say our entire society is made of imaginary thought stories with little relation to objective reality, and some clever manipulators have figured out how to exploit this.

I say even what we take to be our very self is an ultimately illusory narrative construct made up of a disconnected network of thought, language and memories; look hard for a solid “me” entity and you’ll never find one. Same is true of most things people value in this world.

Some people lack healthy empathy centers, and as such they don’t use language the way the rest of us do: to understand and connect with each other. Instead, they use it to get things they want. They figured out how to trade stories for material goods, narrative for actual wealth. You can trade narratives about love for sex, narratives about God for tithes, narratives about terrorists or Russians or Democrats/Republicans for votes, narratives about the economy for wealth, narratives about government for real power, etc. Manipulators learn this and exploit it.

Manipulators without empathy rise to the top, because they’re willing to do whatever it takes and manipulate whoever they need to in order to get there. This problem is further compounded by the fact that wealth itself kills empathy. In a system where sociopaths are rewarded with wealth, and where wealth equals power, we naturally find ourselves ruled by sociopaths. They manipulate our faulty perceptions of objective reality to amass wealth and power, which they use to grab more.


For as long as there has been language and power there have been narratives circulating to advantage the powerful. Much of our so-called “culture” is just ancient power-serving proto-propaganda deliberately interwoven into our ancestors’ worldviews.


Make and keep these two promises to any manipulator in your life and they’ll lose all power over you forever:

“I promise you that I will never again believe anything you tell me about yourself.”

“I promise you that I will never again believe anything you tell me about me.”


Man China’s gonna be so surprised when it finds out it interfered in the November election.


It would have been perfectly sane and normal for a novel virus to surface in China and the world to go “Uh-oh, let’s take care of people and help one another see our species through this!” instead of ramping up propaganda campaigns and fanning the flames of cold war hysteria.


Media-driven anti-China hysteria is not about Covid-19, nor about racism, nor even really about anti-communism. It is ultimately, like most things, about power. The US empire wants global hegemony and the rising China doesn’t want to give it to them, so a confrontation is coming.


America’s attempts to undermine Russia are inseparable from its attempts to undermine China; it’s literally the same agenda. A Pentagon white paper published last year titled “Russian Strategic Intentions” mentions the word “China” 108 times. Some noteworthy excerpts:


  • “The world system, and American influence in it, would be completely upended if Moscow and Beijing aligned more closely.”
  • “The allies’ goal should be deterrence. At the same time, the US should bilaterally engage Russia to peel them away from China’s orbit.”
  • “He also encourages the development of the US’s ‘capability to effectively foster distrust and unease between the Russia Federation and China.’”
  • “Along with Beijing, Moscow seeks a multipolar world in which US hegemony comes to an end. As Alexander Lukin recently pointed out, the ‘common ideal of a multipolar world [has] played a significant role in the rapprochement between Russia and China.’”
  • “Russia and China were explicitly mentioned in the 2018 National Defense Strategy as the great powers with which the US is in competition. Both Russia and China have come a long way since the 1990s, and the ‘friendship’ that emerged in the immediate post-Tiananmen period and continued to grow over the years now today appears to be one of the strongest bilateral alliances on the planet.”
  • “Together, Russia’s tentacles on its former Soviet neighbors and Moscow’s strategic alliance with Beijing in pursuit of a multipolar world (in which the US is no longer the global hegemon) form the two main pillars upon which Putin’s grand strategy rests. All other aspects of its foreign policy behavior can be traced back to this dual-pronged grand strategy.”

These Pentagon strategists are basically seen pleading for US leaders to try to court either Russia or China to peel them apart, but the decision has been made to aggressively escalate against them both instead, likely because they know that both Beijing and Moscow are aware if they let the other fall then they’re next. This has driven them closer together.

In a very interesting Grayzone interview last year packed full of ideas that you’ll never hear voiced on western mass media, Russia’s Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov spoke openly about the various ways that Russia, China, and other nations who’ve resisted absorption into the blob of the US power alliance have been working toward the creation of a multipolar world. Ryabkov said other nations have been watching the way the dominance of the US dollar has been used to economically terrorize noncompliant nations into subservience by way of sanctions and other manipulations, with Washington expecting that the dollar and the US financial system will remain “the cardiovascular system of the whole organism.”

“That will not be the case,” Ryabkov said. “People will bypass, in literal terms. And people will find ways how to defend themselves, how to protect themselves, how to guarantee themselves against any emergencies if someone comes up at the White House or whatever, at the Treasury, at the State, and says ‘Hey guys, now we should stop what is going on in Country X, and let’s squeeze them out.’ And this country sits on the dollar. So they will be done the moment those ideas will be pronounced. So China, Russia and others, we create alternatives that we will most probably continue using not just national currencies, but baskets of currencies, currencies of third countries, other modern barter schemes.”

“We will use ways that will diminish the role of dollar and US banking system with all these risks of assets and transactions being arrested, being stopped,” Ryabkov concluded.

And indeed, this is what has been happening. That, right there, is the real reason you’re being sold Russia and China hysteria today.

Anyone who saw through the anti-Russia bullshit but cheerleads for the anti-China bullshit is a moron, as is anyone who sees through the anti-China bullshit but cheerleads for the anti-Russia bullshit. It’s the same bullshit. Don’t be a moron. Insist on detente, peace, collaboration, and a respect for sovereignty.


The first draft of the Patriot Act was rolled out a week after 9/11. Does anyone really believe they gathered all the necessary information and wrote hundreds of pages in one week from scratch? Does anyone believe there aren’t pre-planned authoritarian agendas being rolled out now?

Powerful people are with absolute certainty conspiring to exploit our current situation, and there are a multitude of theories about the specifics of how that might be happening. Calling these “conspiracy theories” is not an argument, it’s just saying what’s happening.


As new technology will soon enable coronavirus-detecting drones to patrol Australian skies, I predict a much older technology will also soon be making a resurgence:



I invented an arcade game with a robotic boxing glove and two buttons. If you push the red button it punches you in the face, and if you push the blue one it punches you in the face while telling you the red one would’ve punched you a bit harder. No one played it for some reason.

I tried adding a feature where a bunch of condescending and authoritative-sounding voices scold you for being selfish if you don’t play, but people were still like “No thank you I’d still prefer play one of those other games where I don’t get punched in the face at all.” I can’t understand it.


I hope you Bernie Bros are aware that if you refuse to vote for the demented racist authoritarian rapist with whom you share no common ideological ground, it’s the same as voting for the other demented racist authoritarian rapist with whom you share no common ideological ground.


If Team Biden wants votes the least they could do is tell you who his handlers will be if he gets elected. Just a simple introduction, “Hi I’m Ted, I’ll be making all the president’s fiscal policy decisions while he watches Matlock” etc.


Most political arguments are basically just someone saying “Hey maybe our society doesn’t have to be sociopathic and crazy” and then someone else calling them unreasonable.


There are such large-scale shifts happening in such an unclear information environment right now. Those of us who are dedicated to truth will probably have to revise our understanding of what’s going on in the world in some very significant ways within a few months.


To minimize infection the UK is granting early release to all non-violent, non-Julian Assange prisoners.


America has the Second Amendment because a well-armed populace is a nation’s best defense against tyranny, like in case a class of plutocrats hijacks the government and starts stealing ever-increasing amounts of wealth and power away from the citizenry or something.


Almost everything in the news is empty/irrelevant narrative. The only relevant information is where the money is moving, where the resources are moving, where the weapons are moving, and where the people are moving. Everything else is narrative meant to justify, manipulate or distract from those movements.


There are two kinds of journalists: those who present themselves as unbiased reporters of objective factual reality, and those who are honest.

  • Previous civilisations had checks and balances to prevent what Kaitlin has accurately stated.
    The Plains Indians had a law : “Death for the First Proven Lie”. Not only does this make it easier to prevent psychopaths from developing a political faction, but it focusses thinking on reality and mental workmanship.
    Christianity removes this essential safety measure against the mudShadows by taking away our right to judge and by making the worst treachery to mankind forgivable.

  • If you want some insight into psychopathy and its influence in our lives, look at the website theauthoritarians.com.

    Robert Anthony “Bob” Altemeyer (born 6 June 1940) is a retired Professor of Psychology at the University of Manitoba. He produced the test and scale for “RWA” or right-wing authoritarianism.. He did extensive research on authoritarianism, identifying the psychological makeup of authoritarian followers and authoritarian leaders. His research is depressing, but should be better known. Maybe we can protect ourselves as a society from right wing psychopathic authoritarians, and maybe we can’t, but we should know what science tells us about them.

  • I read somewhere online in the past couple of days that if you vote for Joe Dementia, you’re rewarding the dnc for rigging the primaries. Which is NOT to say you should vote for Colonel Cheeto.

  • “The first draft of the Patriot Act was rolled out a week after 9/11.”

    It is interesting to see that it is very much the same people who are skeptical about the “official version” of both 9/11 and the current crisis. And the same who are believing everything mainstream medias and politicians tell them. But the latter are more numerous.

    It seems people are always looking for the version that will fit the most their self interests.

    I guess it was that way in the days of Noah. And because we are in the return of those days just before the Second Coming of Jesus, people are self-centered more than ever. So I pray the Rosary to hasten the return of Jesus because I do have seen enough bs.

  • Hey Caitlin, this is for your attention. Maybe you can do something with this?

    Dr. Anthony Fauci has a HUGE conflict of interest, GLOBALLY, he is even part of The New England Journal Of Medicine!!

    Have a fantastic weekend folks, love one another, care about each other, and pay it forward!

  • I would not call any of it conspiracy, the truth is beyond and deeper than conspiracy. When it comes to truth/absolute reality/the singularity, which we come from, and which people call god, there are zero conspiracies. Even if there are conspiracies that are true, those conspiracies do not matter as long as you know what the truth is. The powers that be are just giving people’s ego, what peoples ego’s want and desire, so in reality, the “matrix” is not evil, bad or good, the “matrix” just is. The mental and emotional conditioning and programming of the “matrix” is in the right here and right now for us to learn from and to love it because the ‘matrix is here for us to learn from and to grow and to evolve mentally, emotionally and spiritually, which are all the same, not to hate or to despise. Hating and despising and resenting the “matrix” brings us down to the same level as the “matrix”.

  • “[…] wealth itself kills empathy. In a system where sociopaths are rewarded with wealth, and where wealth equals power, we naturally find ourselves ruled by sociopaths […]”

    Glad that Caitlin is writing about the power of narrative.

  • Do you folks realize yet the Matrix has nothing to do with propaganda? Ha ha! Blue pill red pill. It’s about being a man trapped in a woman’s body and vice versa. Cis and trans and the gender blender. Is that you?

    There’s this whole cottage industry of people thinking they’re “red pilled” or beyong the Matrix or whatever ha ha!

    The Wachowski brothers are now sisters, you dopes!


  • I believe that the United States can beat Russia in a war between the two.
    I believe that the United States can beat China in a war between the two.
    I believe that the United States will have it’s ass royally handed to it if Russia and China ever decide to team up and fight a war against the United States.
    I believe that the politicians of the United States are a pack of low grade morons for trying to antagonize the counties of Russia and China AT THE SAME EXACT TIME therefore making Russia and China natural allies.

  • In Canada, Trudeau told people there will be no normalcy before the vaccine, telling people it could take six months or one year or one year and a half.

    So this hellish existence will continue for the foreseeable future.

    It shows we are truly living in the return of the days of Noah just before the Second Coming of Jesus and I pray the Rosary to hasten His return because this hellish situation won’t end before the return of Jesus.

  • Hi Caitlin. Thank you for this article, excellent. Have you heard of Igor Sibaldi? He coined the term “Rumourese”. He writes mostly in Italian which I donot speak, but there was an article in a Brazilian magazine which gives a good overview. He talks about the narrative as being content free or contradictory, you might be interested. As I do speak portuguese I have done a rough translation, if you want a copy, Please email me: maria.clarke@gmx.com. Many thanks for your work, I am on your email list. Best regards. Maria Clarke.

  • Election 2020: Senile Dotard [Dem.] versus Moral Retard [Rep].
    Take your pick.
    To kid yourself that Biden is anything else is a form of self-deception I am unwilling to engage in. Dotard is close to the worst nominee of the 20 or so that went to bat. His primary selling point was that he was less dis-likable than Hillary and presented no threat to the status quo. The very same status quo that delivers an economic disaster every decade that allows the oligarch billionaires to be bailed out and us to be handcuffed to debt to do so. Hillary was more disliked as she was an unfair headwind of Shrillary being a woman. But she didn’t adjust and her failure to campaign in Wisconsin is evidence of her arrogance.
    Biden did a nice job as Obama’s maitre d’. The billionaire oligarchs who bought Sanders’s defeat [and don’t kid yourself on that. About a dozen billionaires spent what they had to in ways that made a difference to defeat Sanders.] We have yet to get the details of the bribes to assclowns such as Buttigieg, Harris, Klobuchar, etc. but they were bought.

    The Oligarchs are perfectly happy with either Dotard or Retard because both assure no essential change in the creeping enslavement of the American middle and working classes. Under Dotard it will be slower than under Retard and Dotard might make “nicer” judge picks. But really judges only affect one person at a time so they are not really that important. They are nickels and dimes worth of justice, [like the one time $1500 the Capitalist Political Party insults us with while enriching Wall Street, Bank Street, War Street, Insurance Street and Pharma Street courtesy of the Bribists err I mean “Lobbyists” efforts. The billion stealing continues uninterrupted.

    Biden brings a “blank happy face” of someone just realizing that his senile dementia is starting to kick in. Watcch Biden closely as fakes a “smile” to imply comprehension when you know he’s OTL much of the time. That’s what his “debate” performances revealed.

    In six months he won’t be able to string a sentence together.

    Trump eats him alive in the debates. Biden would be well advised to say something like “Our positions are clear enough, we don’t need “no stinking debates”. Biden is less of a piece of shit than Trump but the DNC is still in the shit selling business. There is no reason for enthusiasm just like there was no reason for Hillary enthusiasm. Well this went on too long. Fortunately I vote in Hawaii where one vote never affects outcomes. One third of all Democrats could vote Communist and the Biden would still take Hawaii.

    Here’s the Biden campaign slogan. “Biden 2020… The Dead Man Walking Tour.”

    • The terms that you use, “Dotard” and “Retard” are very insulting to an entire group of innocent people. Perhaps you could consider those people in your next rant?

  • “I say our entire society is made of imaginary thought stories with little relation to objective reality, and some clever manipulators have figured out how to exploit this.” True enough, but Albert Schweitzer indicates that this phenomenon goes much deeper than manipulation. “Generally speaking a generation lives, of course, less by the worldview that has been produced within it (by its few prophetic thinkers) than by that of the previous age. The light of a star is still visible to us when it has long ceased to exist. There is hardly anything in the world that clings so toughly to life as does a worldview.” Thus neoliberalism, born of the global capitalism on warp drive that came into dominance during the last half of the 20th Century, is far more than “an imaginary thought story” cleverly used by warmongering plutocrats to protect and enhance their power. It has become the worldview by which, through which, we have been conditioned to perceive and think. Yet Caitlin is quite correct that even a worldview like neoliberalism, deeply seated both outside and inside ourselves, can be displaced by a better, more beautiful one–one that reverences life rather than exploits it. And she’s also right that this transformation of worldview (inner and outer) is our urgent, essential task. When we go to an even deeper level, however, the matrix of space and time through which consciousness itself shapes its “reality,” we’re kinda stuck, with only occasional excursions perhaps made possible by genuine spiritual or religious experience.

  • I want to point out a possible flaw in your reasoning. Your paragraph in which you explain how sociopaths rise to the top in our system is spot on–I’ve said the same things myself. But later you talk about China and Russia and their attempts to create a multipolar world, which of course is a good thing, and a godsend for countries like Venezuela. But it kinda sounds like you are crediting their leaders with being great world citizens struggling against the evil US for the common good of all humanity. Of course we all tend to believe what we want to believe, and I’d like to believe that too. But why wouldn’t the same factors that give us one sociopath after another leading the US-dominated borg, also send sociopaths to the top in Russia and China? Of course sometimes you’ll get an exception–like that guy who was running Uruguay, Mujica I think. But Uruguay is a small country–we just saw how impossible it is for a non-sociopath to get near the presidency of the US. Putin is likely the autocrat he’s accused of being, but it does seem like his top priority is actually Russia, not just himself and his family.

  • I would suggest that it is not so much that sociopaths (mans the same as psychopath) are more likely to gain power, admittedly it seems that way, but I suspect this is largely an illusion. Power tends to be conferred by random chance.
    Once a person is in a position of power they experience a situation in which all the people surrounding them only respond to them in terms of their power. This leads to an almost total lack of honesty from any quarter, the most manipulated people of all are they whom have great power, be it wealth or fame or weaponry.
    In an environment where honesty is almost entirely absent it is as if being in a sensory derivation chamber only in this case its an honesty deprivation chamber. the characteristics of being denied any form of sensory feedback are catastrophic, if left in a sensory deprivation chamber a person becomes hallucinatory and quickly drifts into insanity, with extended duration their sanity is permanently destroyed, even if removed from the tank they can never again function. Solitary confinement is a form of this, it disables an individual for life reducing their ability to pose a ch coherent threat to others.
    When the wealthy or famous or they with military status are surrounded by cabals of dishonesty they are slowly driven insane, in an ethics deprivation chamber they lose any track of what is or is not ethical. The lies told them generally reflect the values espoused by the society at large, if the society in which they are embedded worships money then they can do no wrong for the sake of their money, or if society worships fame then for the sake of their fame, or if society worships military prowess then they can do no wrong for the sake of military prowess.
    Surrounding them on all sides are manipulators using every one of the social narratives you mention to manipulate them, if the average citizen is targeted with manipulative lies from the media they of elite status are targeted with 1000 times more lies from all sources, from all directions.
    With no ethical feedback from any quarter, in an honesty deprivation tank they go insane committing any and every manner of crime with no one to tell them whether they are acting appropriately or not they become the victims of their own power, they do not have power, instead as helpless addicts it is power that has them.
    This is forced on victims by the general attitudes of the society that they are embedded within which serve to build the chamber around them, they are not the centralized cause of pathology spreading dysfunction to their surroundings, rather they are the victims of pathology accreting the dysfunction of their surroundings
    Democracy is supposed to be a means of keeping the honesty deprivation chamber open, when democracy fails it ensures that this means of keeping the leadership safe from the delusions of the masses fails.
    The masses are not the victim of the delusions of centralized authority , centralized authority is the victim of the delusions of the masses, an ethical people will get leaders who are ethical, an unethical people will get the leaders they deserve.

  • “Almost everything in the news is empty/irrelevant narrative.”

    Maybe… but the mainstream medias are still much trusted. Look at the current crisis.

    And do not forget on 9/11 the same medias telling us there were airplanes wreckages in the Pentagone and in a field in Pennsylvania where there were no visible wreckage at all.

    And yet, everybody believe the mainstream medias with their reporting in the current health crisis.

    If this is not formidable power, I do not know what it is…

    The other explanation is that, as it was the case in the days of Noah, almost everybody is of bad faith in our days. Remember, Noah was, in his days, the only man of good faith. It shows that we are in the return of the days of Noah just before the Second Coming of Jesus and I pray the Rosary to hasten His glorious return because I do have seen enough of all the bullshit.

  • This was a very depressing commentary. Unusual that.

  • Even if there was in this case a lesser of two evils, which could be argued ad nauseum, the lesser is still evil. To cast a vote for such is to become a party to it. No sane person would consider holding a gun to their neighbors head and force them to do, or not do, anything, except to stop their neighbor from doing such to themselves. Ergo, ALL of those seeking public office, and those who wish them to hold the gun, are INSANE. I’m certainly no fan, but do like one of Grover Norquist’s ideas; that government is fine as long as its small enough to drown in the bathtub. If we must have Sociopaths In Charge, they shouldn’t be allowed in charge of much. The US Constitution is obviously ineffective, since it hasn’t prevented our current tyranny. It is useful as a test for tyranny, which our current Sociopaths In Charge have failed miserably.

    • The problem is not the u.s government or the u.s constitution, the problem is the people (u.s citizens) do not know that they have consented into being agents/public officers of and in the u.s government located in washington d.c, by saying they are u.s citizen under penalty of perjury when they sign government forms, applications and by participating is government programs such as social insecurity etc. This gives the government authority to legally call you under civil law-a resident, taxpayer, driver, spouse etc etc and prosecute you when you break the terms of the contract, which is civil law, because once you sign a government form you enter into a unilateral contract with the government. A unilateral contract creates a government franchise when only you sign the government form, document, application and noone in the government signs the form, document, application ect with you.

  • KISS — keep it simple stupid. Caitlin is very good at focusing on the simple truths that cut through all the complex wanderings of the modern mind. Our problems are more basic than our deluded thinking likes to imagine. Complicated solutions will never solve essentially simple problems. Learn to think outside of the complexity box.

    • Bingo. Her post today, for example, contained this little gem: “Most political arguments are basically just someone saying ‘Hey maybe our society doesn’t have to be sociopathic and crazy’ and then someone else calling them unreasonable.”

  • Caitlin, your insights are exceptionally spot-on. This is brilliant. Thank you, as always, for sharing your thoughts with us.
    As you’ve mentioned before (and got a lot of flack for it, IIRC, which tells you a lot), those of us on the “left” and the “right” need to united in order to fight against the authoritarians. We can leave the divisive details for later — these things should really be sorted out at a local, and even personal level, IMHO — and focus on civil liberties and eliminating the massive and totally unjustified concentration of wealth and power, whether public or private.

    Many of us have been watching these disturbing trends for many years…the restrictions and changes they want to impose have been planned for a long, long time. I think we are at a point in time where we will either stand together against tyranny or give into it, with precious little hope of changing it once it’s comes to pass. Everyone needs to work together on this. They cannot jail or kill billions of us without destroying themselves. We cannot let them divide us any longer. Remember that the “Green New Deal” is part of this plan — it is an agenda to surveil and control every living and non-living thing on the planet, and 5G is a core part of this effort. It’s not a “crazy conspiracy theory,” they talk about it openly at their meetings and document it in their writings.

    I was the head of the largest business unit at Vodaphone, their headquarters in Newbury between 2013 through to 2015.
    I was privvy to a number of new technologies that were coming down the pipe that were going to be implemented, namely the internet of things and secondly, the 5G technology.
    I knew a long time ago that 5G was dangerous, but I didn’t understand the correlation with the coronavirus, which I now do
    There is a deliberate strategy to roll out 5G ….
    the 5G frequency is a very, very high frequency.
    It is just below the classification of a weapon, and I’ll tell you why.
    The frequency that they are using …. causes cell poisoning.
    So our bodies try to fight the radiation and what happens is our bodies kick out toxins, with some proteins and some DNA, RNA from our cells in the form of a chemical which is called a virus.
    And it will head towards orifices to be excreted or expunged out of our bodies…
    So what you are seeing is not coronavirus per se, you are seeing cell poisoning manifesting with fluids, chemicals, viruses that the body’s trying to dispose of ….
    A reaction to human bodies to the electrification of the universe though 5G satellites, 5G towers, 5G cells that are being populated in major cities around the world
    So this is what is causing this pandemic.
    ….. this is the largest global cover-up in history for human beings based on technological advances…

    they are implementing 3 new strategies.
    One – vaccines.
    The vaccines have … toxins
    …. they give you the actual disease to see how the body’s immune system fight and combat the disease.
    So they give you the disease.
    But in that vaccine will consist of chemicals that light you up effectively to respond to even more powerfully to the signals
    So a bit like radiotherapy, but what they inject in your system, enables the cells to be destroyed
    That vaccine will consist of a substance that will enable the frequency of 5G to be more effective in creating more fatalities
    So what you are seeing around the world, is that they are buying time to build capacity for the hospitals, for the warehouses and all places they are going to convert to huge mortuaries…
    To house the millions of people that are going to die from what is happening

    Secondly, the vaccines will come with a tracking device called an RFID chip
    It is a microchip that will be inserted at same time as the vaccines
    This will give them the ability to track
    It will be presented in the name of “we need to know who has had the vaccines and who hasn’t had the vaccines so we can know who’s safe and who can be given licence to travel and do different things on the basis that they are no longer a threat to humanity”

    The third area, .. is the ….the implementation of
    A global digital currency
    It will start with the US and will roll out around the world

    They are shutting global economies down because they want to introduce 2 things
    A new level of monopoly
    They are 4 or 5 key multinational companies
    Amazon will be the first….
    They will manage the supply chain of everything that we purchase
    So they shut the global markets down for that
    They want to make as many people as possible unemployed
    We are heading to the largest global recession the world has ever seen
    They are bringing in the new blockchain global digital currency which we will not have access to unless we can prove that we are no longer a harm to humanity by having the vaccine, which will be mandatory.
    And secondly, they will insist we have to take the chip, which is a part of that same simultaneous process
    Education, employment, everything will be completely different in a matter of months; not even years

    • yes – i have read the same on this site, which i urge all the read ….. https://wrenchinthegears.com/

      • ok,
        I’ve read this. The problem with everybody just pointing out issues is that there are no solutions.
        What are you going to do when this comes to pass? Will you refuse? If so, what would you expect to happen?

        Are you willing to live as a criminal ? Underground? If not then what does it matter what is being done? Your going to go along with it anyway.

        These are questions all of us need to work out before hand. If you are convinced this is going to happen, then you should be making plans right now to give everything up and live as a fugitive if you refuse.

  • Ah, the Buddha Ms Caitlin speaks the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth. We are truly blessed by her words of wisdom. Hopefully more of humanity will grasp and handle the real truth every single day.

  • Caitlin’s hypothesis about moral scum rising to the top fits the facts well enough, and fits Occam’s Razor too, which the materialists will approve. One defect ; it gives us no way to get out from under.
    This is why i still prefer the mudShadow explanation, as described by nagual Juan Matus in The Active Side of Infinity. The mudShadows also fit the observable evidence without contradiction, but they serve a purpose in our evolution by exploiting our weaknesses until we make ourselves shipshape and bullshit-proof.
    By learning to take control of our attention, we have a method of defeating the scourge of mankind, the inventors of superstition and self-fixation.
    This offers better odds than overturning predatory governments dominated by psychopaths.
    Psychopathy is not natural to we who remain human, as was proven by the preColumbian civilisations who had effective countermeasures to those who succumb to the counterfeit self provided by an uninvited greedy symbiote.
    Not only were wisdom and generosity the highest status attributes, but they banned the psychopath’s primary tool of trade, deceit : Death for the First Proven Lie was more than another restrictive law, it is a social hygeine which eliminates sociopaths before they can establish a power base.
    Imagine a society so truthful that everyone is trustworthy . . . that’s something modern mankind struggles to aspire to.

    • You mean like those pre Columbian civilizations that instigated wars for the sole purpose of acquiring prisoners in the thousands to sacrifice to their deity of choice? Enough noble savage crap. One advantage they had was that their gangs of sociopaths in charge had substantial competition from less sociopathic gangs, and in many cases no gang in charge at all. Largely because they hadn’t yet acquired weaponry a proper gang of sociopaths in charge could use to dominate other gangs. Their sociopaths had to rely mostly on sheer numbers of thugs.

  • Thank you, Caitlin, for your journalistic reporting insights!
    telling the truth,the whole truth, nothing but the truth…

  • “At the same time, the US should bilaterally engage Russia to peel them away from China’s orbit.”

    The fact that the author doesn’t understand what “bilaterally” means only emphasizes the stupidity of this so-called strategy.

  • I usually agree with everything you say wholeheartedly, but not this time, not about China, or anything else you ever said. Oh sure, we can go back 3,000 years and all those old games are still being played out, but the Old Testament wasn’t even written until 1,100 years after the death of Christ, so this little game between the Christians and the Jews as we see it being played out before us is like the, ‘good cop bad cop’, routine where almost all the commoners of Western Civilization are the victims of two bad religions, not because the faiths themselves are flawed but because the members of the theological class are predominantly morally corrupt. But, even beyond that old game there’s a newer game based upon the Rhode scholars game, in which the end game is to have only white people of British descent as the inheritor’s of the Earth, with refinements there in, and all other races as slaves or exterminated. So, you’re wrong; despite all the games, the game in play at the moment, with all the oligarchs and plutocrats, is pure racism. But, I still love your work.

  • Re: Caitlin Johnstone
    You observe, in pertinent part:

    There are such large-scale shifts happening in such an unclear information environment right now. Those of us who are dedicated to truth will probably have to revise our understanding of what’s going on in the world in some very significant ways within a few months.

    And then your summation is:

    There are two kinds of journalists: those who present themselves as unbiased reporters of objective factual reality, and those who are honest.

    Indeed, here in the U.S., regardless of the sources of one’s information, it is the honesty, ethics, morality, and factual integrity of the people providing said information that is ultimately the determinate factor. Separating or segregating professional propagandists, unhinged fringe wing-nut theorists, and all the many other iterations of serial bullshiters, from ‘honest” purveyors of dependable information can not be achieved by those inexperienced in the art of such activity.
    As Shakespeare admonished in the face of betrayal: Beware of those who “protest too much.”

    Coronavirus pandemic events have been managed and modulated, starting with making sure that the virus got a good, solid hold in the US, by ignoring the threat and distracting with other circus like the impeachment hearings.
    I wondered out loud what was being covered up by that circus. Novel-coronavirus spread was one of the things.
    The intelligence was squelched since December, with White House and Americans all distracted, according to this report.

    Doctors, including myself, have really been righteously indignant about the handling of this pandemic for the whole time. This story sort of fails to catch the knowledgeable righteous indignation aspect, though it touches there. This has been “mismanaged” at every step of the way to increase societal impact, damage and freak-out. I’m not really going to accept the incompetence defense without a lot of serious evidence to support that defense.

    Bill Gates, always thoughtful and polite, really likes mass vaccines with special-features. He has for a long time.
    ​ ​According to Gates, anything that could be defined as a “mass gathering” – from spectators packed into a stadium for a sporting event, to protesters out on the street in demonstration – would be considered an act of civil disobedience without a vaccine. Little surprise that Gates chose the concept of “mass gathering” to snag all of us, for what is modern democratic society if not one big mass event after another? Indeed, since nobody will want to miss the next big happening, like the Super Bowl, or Comic-Con, or, heaven forbid, Eurovision, millions of people would predictably line up for miles to get their Microsoft-supported inoculation, even if it contains tracking technologies.

    It is the long awaited reset, the full-monty economic restructuring. We do not have a say, yet. We need to forge this new future ourselves, not wait for further instructions from the owners. It’s broken. They broke it, and we are the only ones to suffer as long as they rule us.
    The Lockdown Wouldn’t Be So Devastating If Our Economy Wasn’t So Rigged, Brittle and Exploitive

    • There are few if any historical incidents of any plague being “handled” at all. If a disease becomes a plague, by definition it has jumped borders and or barriers. At which point it burns through the population, kills people, sometimes mitigated by treatment, and then either disappears or we develop heard immunity. Current isolation efforts won’t stop this one from doing so. Lockdowns merely slow the process. One of the fundamental requirements for life is work. No work, no food. Some of it does grow on trees but it has to be picked. Last I checked the mortality rate of not eating is 100%. Current medical philosophy is largely dominated by “medical intervention at all cost”, which is absurd given that there are other requirements for life, and certainly other requirements to sustain a preferred lifestyle. I’ve occasionally seen medical providers become indignant when their patient chooses not to abide by their direction, denying them their godhood in favor of their own preferences. Now medical “experts” have been put in charge of our lives by the dictate of the Sociopaths In Charge. Many such “experts” are in fact members in good standing of the Sociopaths In Charge.

  • You are a great writer! Pouring your prose on my cereal I find gets it a little soggy and not quite on the mark, but nonetheless, enjoyable.
