Listen to a reading of this article:

We’re being driven toward nuclear war on the completely fictional claim that Putin is a Hitler-like megalomaniac who’s just invading countries completely unprovoked, solely because he is evil and hates freedom, and won’t stop invading and conquering until he’s stopped by force.

The news media aren’t telling people about the western aggressions which led to this war. They’re not telling people the US is keeping this war going with the stated goal of weakening Russia and is rejecting peace talks and refusing to push for peace. All people are being told is that Putin is another Hitler who won’t listen to reason and only understands violence. The world’s two nuclear superpowers are being pushed closer and closer to direct military confrontation based on a complete fiction which omits mountains of facts.

To participate in this madness is indefensible. It is indefensibly immoral to foist a fictional version of events upon a trusting populace in order to manufacture consent for more and more aggressive acts of brinkmanship with a nuclear superpower. These people are depraved.

“No no you don’t understand, if we weren’t being told constantly by the media that this proxy war needs our full support and censoring the voices who dispute this and using giant troll armies to swarm and silence anyone who questions this, we might fall victim to propaganda.”

“You’re not anti-war, you’re just anti-AMERICAN wars,” said the person who is loudly cheerleading America’s proxy war in Ukraine.

Warmongers don’t like being called warmongers when they support a US proxy war that was deliberately provoked by the US and is being sustained by the funding and facilitation of the US with the explicit goal of weakening a longtime geopolitical rival of the US. They get very upset when you point out the fact that they are doing this, and when people’s opposition to their warmongering is described as “anti-war”:

They very much prefer to pretend that this time the US is on the good and righteous side of a war, because in that imaginary world they’re the cool anti-fascists standing up to an evil tyrant and those who oppose their warmongering are the real warmongers.

“This time the US is on the GOOD side of a war! Also, goo goo ga ga I am a little baby with a little baby brain.”

The closer we get to nuclear war the less patience I have for sectarian spats between people who are supposed to be opposing war and militarism. Grow the fuck up and get over yourselves. This is more important than you and your ego.

Don’t let anyone tell you your criticisms of US warmongering make no difference; if they didn’t, the empire wouldn’t work so hard to dissuade you from making them. They work so hard to manufacture public consent for their agendas because they absolutely require that consent.

An entire globe-spanning empire rests on our closed eyelids. Depends on keeping us in a propaganda-induced coma. Circulating ideas and information which discredit and dispute that propaganda poses a direct threat to that empire. That’s what all the censorship of dissent is about.

Is your one tweet, video or public demonstration going to bring the empire crashing down? Of course not. But it will spread awareness by that much. And all positive changes in human behavior are always preceded by an expansion of awareness. You’re nudging us all toward awakening to whatever extent you help expand awareness of truth and reality.

We can’t be the Hollywood hero who single-handedly decapitates the machine, but we can all collectively throw sand in its gears, making it harder and harder for it to function. That’s what disrupting the imperial propaganda machine accomplishes, because that machine depends on propaganda. The weakest part of an empire that’s held together by lies and manipulation is its lies and manipulations; that’s why it’s such an aggressively protected aspect of its power. And it happens to be the one part that anyone with a voice can attack, and attack effectively.

The nightmare scenario for our rulers is the same as the nightmare scenario for every ruler throughout history: that the masses will get sick of their rule and use the power of their numbers to get rid of them. That’s exactly what the propaganda matrix is designed to prevent.

One aspect of this struggle that is a bit like a Hollywood movie is that it kind of is a struggle between light and darkness, because the empire depends on keeping its activities obfuscated and unseen while we’re all working to make its machinery visible and transparent. That’s why Assange is in prison. It’s also why internet censorship keeps ramping up, why propaganda is getting more and more blatant, and why online discussion is swarmed by astroturf trolling ops. Those in power are working against the people to keep things dark and unseen.

    One thing lost that must be kept in mind with the “hitlerization” of enemies was that Hitler himself was “hitlerized.” He was not just a maniacal madman who wanted to perpetrate evil for the sake of evil. He was just a man. A man who had a vision for how the world could/should be, and thought any sacrifices made were worth achieving that goal. Sound familiar? The creation of the “ultimate evil” persona made and continues to make it much easier to portray conflicts in a strictly good vs evil dynamic, ignoring any other factors that might lead to conflict. And if you can successfully convince people a struggle is purely about good vs evil, then it isn’t much of a step further to convince people theirs is the side of “good”, which then excuses any sort of horrifying act or tactic to fight the “evil” (bombing of Dresden, Hiroshima, Nagasaki).

  6. Maybe Gloria is a paying advertizer. Many paper based media accept ads that are seemingly news, the late Paul Harvey was great at doing that on radio.

  7. Well here it is for all you Moppetteers, we all know who did what to the family of the last Tsar or Russia with all the stress these families are causing us someone must have gone off the deep end.

  8. The United States has a rapacious hunger for resources and victims (predatory capitalism). From Bretton Woods to this day, the US had positioned itself, through might makes right, to having just about every advantage one could ask for (e.g.-US’ dollar as default world currency, Petro dollar, global military power, capacity to develop new advanced technologies, US dominated hegemonic strategy through NATO, etc.), but somehow, it was not enough—there are limits to American power. And now, through the Ukrainian proxy war, the US is sponsoring a desperate scheme to preserve its hegemonic imperialism. Clearly the US is willing to sacrifice most everything on the planet (nuclear war) to maintain its dominance; but the context has changed, as seen with economic organizations, such as: BRICS+ and SCO. The US must accept self-determination and renounce its cold war mentality and plans for global governance.

  9. More likely they just want us to agree to letting them put chains on our legs.

  11. Thanks for this post. I have been told by an in-law who ought to know better, that the USA cannot negotiate with Russia over Ukraine joining NATO because that would constitute “appeasement.”

  12. Lemme give to you two cents of lies.
    Let’s say your neighbor and your cat wrote the book of the dumbest revelations after long years wondering about what this world is about. It’s published.
    It’s a fine material going from the philosophical foundations of our society, history of religions, economic dependency, psychology to the next Starbuck’s store.
    No one buys it. Even the free samples are disposed in the next trash can.
    Hard knowledge intertwined with truth are inert in minds not prepared to read it.
    But if the book was about death, betrayal, immortality then we are talking about a best seller. Because it is how the sleepy heads can deal at their best and speak and propagate things they can understand.
    Fuck long writings and lectures about plutocracy. John and Mary Doe know nothing about the meanings of fancy words. Ordinary people can understand and love that boring childish Monopoly game. Trust me when it is exactly how our stories are made up. Like a Monopoly game. Paper. How to make billons to believe in worthless paper as the reason to die and to live? It’s the narrative, you stupid.

    1. I don’t want to spoil the party but it’s gonna get increasingly difficult to grow cash online what with the Western sanctions on Russian fertilizers et al. Of course, there’s always the fallow land system from back when but you only get a crop every three years.

    1. Fantastic! I enjoy your job too! And your house! Only your wine cellar is appalling dear… Better get some advice!

      1. So I listened to the spiel from the link. You too can get rich with a website selling stuff online. All for $49.95. A few years ago a friend asked me to go with him to a marriot to hear the same thing only then it was $3000. They even had plants in the audience that jumped up and got in line to pay. I had to hold him back. Told him to look at the three people. All in line, all holding their checkbook out in a way that all could see, all with the same type checkbook covers. The signs are there for anyone who sets aside emotions and look.

        1. I don’t know if you’re kidding, but you should definitely not click those links.

          1. Never click those links as you might elevate sizable amounts of interest…provided you have your personal 2.5 ton electrically powered winch with wire rope and multi-featured remote.

  19. We are not going to have a nuclear war. H.G. Wells would laugh from fools being wrapped up in the same hysteria as war of worlds had back in the day.
    I’m trying to schematize a history book about these historical shift but after reading my first drafts I’m afraid it will be more likely a comedy.coming from a ridiculous tragedy orchestrated by stupid evil fools.

    1. The country that used nukes before would not use them again? I hope you’re right, but the geriatrics in charge keep buying them up like they were viagra.

      1. @Manfred: Fearmongering is good for business. So after the Covid scare and the nuclear scare, rest assured that they’re going to invent something else! After a whole summer of “You’re gonna fucking freeze your balls and starve next winter in Europe”, we’re starting to learn now that Europe’s gas reserves are in fact at 91%, that extra gas is gonna come from Israel, that the Nord Stream 2 still has one pipe anyway and that Putin is as amenable to resuming deliveries as ever, which is in Europe’s interest because they’ll have to pay for the gas they’ve contracted long-term anyway whether it’s delivered or not.
        So people are gonna be grateful to their politicians for solving the alleged crisis and will reelect them and Bob’s your uncle. Then they can start another fear cycle. And paranoiacs (which most people are) love that because it legitimizes their paranoia :o)
        https://www.aa.com.tr/en/energy/general/europes-gas-reserves-now-at-91-of-capacity-exceeding-targets/36607

        1. Julian Assange has covid because of stupid lying assholes who call it a scare and tell people not to get vaccinated because they hate libruls. You paranoid idiots shortened his life out of pure selfishness, and are no better than the people holding him in jail. Assange will be remembered for his generosity and courage when he is dead, you’ll be forgotten as soon as you’re tagged and bagged.

          1. Do you post from a mental institution or do they let you loose on society?
            1/ Doesn’t it seem strange to you that Julian Assange allegedly got Covid in a high security prison where everybody including himself has been vaccinated to their soul’s content? It’s one of two things: either the vaccine works and Assange shouldn’t have got Covid or it doesn’t and there’s no point in vaccinating people, let alone making it mandatory.
            2/ Nobody’s shortened his life because he is not dead.
            3/ How you manage to connect that to hating libruls is outright neurotic.
            4/ How you give lessons in generosity and courage piggybacking on Assange’s martyrdom is outright cringeworthy.
            You know what the trouble with you is? You’re too violent :o)

            1. There are studies out now showing vaccinated people are actually more likely to catch covid again than the unvaccinated with natural immunity.

              1. So far every study I’ve been told proved me wrong was factually empty, containing a lot of quotes from people who were mad because Trump lost, but no real science. If you have new evidence I’d look at it, but if it’s not from a team of working virologists I’m not going to take it seriously because it’s politics, not science.

            2. I’m done pretending to save the feelings of a bunch of crazies. Your hatred of vaccines is just tribalism, same as your hatred of masks and Kamala Harris. There is no science behind it, just a lot of bitterness over a world you thought you could control. Fuck you and the horse you rode in on.

            3. Assange was not a martyr. He was a journalist.

              That’s a little detail liberals have a poor grasp of.

        2. Lord @Pascal. Imagine living beneath the waves with a strong-sighted blessing of most excellent fabric. Holding the fabric over your gills, you would begin to breath-drink its warp and weft. Though the plantmatter fibers imbue your soul, the wretched plankton would pollute the cloth until it stank to heavens in prophecy. This is one manner in which the knowledge first come to pass.
          But are we the sea, or the breather, or the fabric? Or are we the breath itself?
          Not knowing what was before but it has been always there and still, can we flow through this world as knowledge flows through, being the water, or are we the stuck morass of sea-filth that gathers on the edge?
          Imagine, again, this year – 2022 – but different.
          A bird cresting the wind is lifted by a gust and downed by a stone. But the stone can come from above, if the bird is upside down. Where, then, did the gust come from? And which direction? Did the “gods” send either, or has the bird decreed their presence by her own mind making?
          The all-sight of 2022 makes a turning of the mind such that relative positions are absolute in their primacy.
          I ask you again to imagine for me. This time you are beneath the ground, a tiny acorn planted by some well-meaning citizen of the world for his/her pleasure. You wish to grow but fear what you may become, so you push off the water, the dirt, the sun, to stay in your hole (like we did at the dawn of covid). But it is in the very pushing that you become a tree, in spite of yourself. How did that happen?
          The acorn is a kind of tree-egg in this stance, and the knowledge is water and sun. We are the chicken inside the egg, but also the dirt. The knowledge from the world – which is about to be made – is what we push against to become full-sighted ourselves; artificially of course and plenty of flaws which eventually will make it crumble. Most of time is always the truth the greatest enemy of the dark lords.
          One final imagining before our minds closes from the shock of ever-knowing. You are now a flame burning bright blue within a vast emptiness. In time you see your brothers and sisters, burnings of their own in the distance and along your side. A sea of pinpoints, a constellation of memories. Each burns bright, then flickers. Then two more take its place but not forever lest the void fills with rancid light that sucks the thought.
          Each of your minds is actually emptiness, and the learnings of the “MSM knowledge” are the pinpoints. Without their stabbing light, my consciousness would be free instead of being as a vast nothingness, unknowing its emptiness as a void is unknowing of itself. But the burnings (the ones who empowered themselves with knowledge) are dangerous to the unipolar world government. That’s why they must be carefully tended and minded and brought to themselves and spread to their siblings.

        3. downplaying risks can be good for business too.

  20. “An entire globe-spanning empire rests on our closed eyelids” … let’s call it Buddha channeling.
    I was talking to a crazed but otherwise amicable warmonger acquaintance yesterday and it occurred to me that it seems the gullible tend to be the most skeptical, which makes sense since they’re the ones that most need skepticism, being the gullible sort and all, but skepticism without intelligence doesn’t do much good and maybe humanity as a whole is better off with nihilism, just toss the baby out with the bathwater if they can’t tell the difference. I like the idea of universal enlightenment but we’re looking at nuclear war and we need to be realistic. Abstractions are over humanity’s collective head. Dumb it down. Life. Death. Pick one.

  21. OK, let’s say the concern over a nuclear exchange in this proxy war is hyperbolic and Caitlin is sounding like chicken little. It brings nuclear weapons into consciousness. A weapon is a tool that can be used to protect or to fight. Nuclear weapons were developed by geniuses knowing they could destroy all life, they should’ve checked in with a dumb guy with kids. We now have many countries with these suicide machines, and that’s what they are, mess with me and it’s goodnight Irene. There are people who have lived and died under this threat. Think of the difference of living before nuclear threat. I was a duck and cover kid. Many kids back then had trauma dreams of the world ending. All options have been on the table for seventy-seven years. It’s terrorism in its purest form. Perhaps we should shelve all the globalist, wokeism, international bankers, crony capitalism debates and demand an end to nuclear terror. Wouldn’t it be a better world if our kids could be born and die without a backdrop of annihilation.

    1. You’re right it is terrorism, and maybe that’s the whole reason for it, just to scare us so that they can move their agenda forward a little more like they did with 9 eleven and who can forget those decades of informing us of the suicidal Arab terrorists? So, maybe instead of talking about, “Save my filthy little ass”, We should be talking about, “Don’t steal my rights again with another false flag event.” If anything we should be intimidating our government with protests demanding that all media empires be broken up like AT&T was because our right to free speech includes being free from speech that is monopolized.. Stop letting these con artists walk away with all our rights our wealth and our lives.

      1. @James: “Perhaps we should shelve all the globalist, wokeism, international bankers, crony capitalism debates…”
        It spells BANKSTERS. But you’re right. Let’s do that. They’ll sure love to be able to shear the sheeple quietly without always having an Occupy Wall Street menace over their heads. Thanks for the suggestion. You’re a genius!

    2. I remember being scolded by my WWII veteran uncle for repeating what I heard on the news, that there are enough atom bombs to kill everyone five times over.

      He said that I (a preteen) was scaring the other children.

      He never said it wasn’t true. He only that said no one should speak of it.

      It was not so many years later that B52s were “in orbit” within striking range of Moscow to do a preemptive strike in case Nixon’s secret plan to end the war in Vietnam (nuking it) was to be brought into effect.

      The moratorium in Washington put a scare into Nixon and he backed off.

      Because people spoke of it.

    3. it’s too bad they didn’t push for total global nuclear disarmament when the ussr fell apart. the us would have been the true global hegemon, having the largest and strongest conventional military.

    War is a fiction because it is about power: but power is an illusion. Nations convince themselves they are fighting for principles: they are fighting for interests (power). They think they control the narrative – they don’t. They think they control history: they are only repeating it.

  24. I don’t like wars but…every story has two sides and the West (US/NATO) are doing their darnedest to cover up the other side – inconvenient truths might destroy all this hysterical propaganda.

    The neo-cons in the Biden regime are Strassian demons without a single redeeming quality. Their relentless craving for power will lead to the demise of America and the Western world, if they are not stopped. Godspeed, Vladimir Putin, may India and China have your back.

    1. Even though I do agree with that, it must be underlined that the Straussians only fitted into a narrative that pre-dated them. There were no Straussians at the Washita River, at Wounded Knee or when Charlemagne, Genghis Khan or Tamerlane beheaded people like there was no tomorrow.

    2. So true. Do we really need yet another blood for oil/gas war? The Straussian’s “great game” has cost millions of lives by now. Life is not a game and truth is not a toy. Work out a deal so that Gazprom AND Leviathan can deliver natural gas to the EU, ffs.

  26. Dying in nuclear holocaust for other people’s lies is plain dumb.
    Pure Martyrdom earned by the silence of the lambs.
    Though I admit that US government silences public dissent via corporations that own it, and apparently now own us as well.
    How did these imbeciles go from printing money back to virtual slavery?

  27. Truer words have never been spoken!

    These people are psychopaths with egos so big that they can only walk through doors on a bulldozer. They have cancers of the ego, so to speak, and the tumour metastasizes and projects itself on the cosmos: they want to conquer the Earth, the Moon, Mars…

    As to the way they manufacture the consent they need, there’s nothing new. Herman Göring summed it up best: “Why of course the people don’t want war. Why should some poor slob on a farm want to risk his life in a war when the best he can get out of it is to come back to his farm in one piece? Naturally the common people don’t want war, be it in Russia, in England, or for that matter in Germany. That is understood. But, after all, it is the leaders of the country who determine the policy and it is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether in a fascist or communist dictatorship or in a parliamentary democracy. All you have to do is tell them they are threatened and denounce the peacemakers for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger.”

    So “it is the leaders of the country who determine the policies”. And what are their criteria? The welfare of their people? Get outta here! Their own enjoyment! The thrill! Some people say “as long as others fight for them!” Not even so! Winston Churchill: “Nothing in life is as exhilarating as to be shot at without result” or “Politics are almost as exciting as war, and quite as dangerous… In war, you can only be killed once. But in politics many times.”

    It’s a video game, only with real actors and it’s nice to see that our present USUKEU cheerleaders are following the precepts of Herman Göring to get us into a war to support Nazis in Ukraine.

    At least, we’ve got some honesty here! And coherence! But what about the fight against white supremacism at home, anti-Semitism, anti-racism? Never mind that bullshit! Our stance at home is meant to win us an election. Abroad, it’s meant to win us a war. It’s different! Do you really think we are serious at any moment, in anything we say about anything? Come on… Words are just stuff to be arranged in the best way to carry your dreams across. Truth is a notion for pussies afraid to get caught lying. Efficacy is the key word! It’s all a game, like go, chess or checkers! It’s for fun! Sometimes you win, sometimes you lose… – But people die! – People die anyway sooner or later, what’s the dif’?

    And it’s amazing how even a guy like Joe Rogan, who is bright, spends his time interviewing bright people and is keen on news, is flabbergasted when told the real timeline of the Ukraine hoax by comedian Dave Smith. That’s how good the propaganda of these natural-born liars is!


  28. No no you don’t understand, if we weren’t being told constantly by the media that this proxy war needs our full support and censoring the voices who dispute this and using giant troll armies to swarm and silence anyone who questions this, we might fall victim to propaganda.


    Yes, that is how it is.


    The American message drum now beats out that news out of the norm is not to be trusted. This belief is pushed as virtue by smiling video culture priests all across America. Our beautiful smiling people. Nonsense prevails in our tower of Babel.

    ‘The sharing of biased and false news has become all too common, and this is extremely dangerous to our democracy’.

    This message is repeated by every mainstream newsroom in America. I can’t believe a message like this is pushed. More than one of my high school English teachers is spinning in their grave. I could not sleep at night if I were doing this pushing. The thought of a consensus of mainstream news outlets defining truth from CIA memos as our national fact-checker is madness.

    The second quote is from my own article that I just published a minute ago. You can see the rest on my website.

    2. All that is true, but we still control our public schools on a local level. Teach our kids how to lie and how to recognize a lie and more importantly when to lie and when to tell the truth etcetera, etcetera. Why do you think the feds write up dossiers on parents who disagree at PTA meetings? The schools were the means by which they poisoned our children against us. It is time that we chose the narrative and not these thugs, force these thugs to become violent towards us in front of the cameras of non-five eye nations.I personally would much rather die on a street corner protesting fascism than on a battlefield run by psychopaths, that’s why the death toll for the US civil war was so high, most of the generals went to West Point, Union and Confederate, and of a different class than the foot soldier and all the other inequalities that come with inequality. Their generals purposely had them slaughtered on the battle field. So, it’s really a choice between maybe dying now or definitely dying later. We can even lie like McCarthy did and say that the Comies have control of our media and are trying to goad us into a war so that they can kill us all with their secret weapons.

      1. most of us got schooled in schools of empire. republicans just realised that and try to get a foothold now so they can yet better instill ‘conservative values’ into the next generation of kids.

  29. X FRETENSIS, funny you should mention that, I too have my reservations regarding this addition to the posting on here. So she’s asking posters to committ themselves to formulate some sort of action via their posts ???? DUH ! From my observations over the last 20 years or so, such actions usually result in the Gestapo knocking on your door at 0200 hrs and disappearing you, never to be heard/seen again at the worst, and the least, fired from your job for having appeasement thoughts. BOTH the above HAVE occured over the last 20 years. So YES, I too question the motives of this Susanne. The FACTS, are any such groups planning any action, must do so without ANY electronic communication anywhere. Especially not over the Internet or via a mobile phone.

  30. Am I the only person who reads Caitlin’s posts, who does not believe the hype about nuclear war ???
    FACT, the folks who rule this World, do so for one purpose, and that is to accumilate as much money as humanly possible during their lives. It doesn’t take Einstien, to work out there’s no profit what ever, in nuclear war. Everything stops for the next 100 years or so, whilst the managers of the event, turn to dust. So the question needs to be asked, why on earth would they wish to burn the World, and thus chuck out any chance of enriching themselves further ? Sorry, I don’t buy the propaganda.
    There is also, another issue on the table as well. Many reports over the past, (especially near U.S. military bases wherein nuclear weapons are stored) have claimed U.F.O.’s flying over them, and then hovering over the silos. Afterwards it was discovered the weapons within were useless, and somehow had been neutralised. IF, these reports are true, it clearly shows there are other life forms on this planet, that will do everything in their power, to stop a nuclear holocaust, as the results would also effect them as well.
    Therefore we have TWO very good reasons, to discard this fearmongering, and get on with the job of replacing all these entities who think they are better than the rest of us.

    1. I rather agree with the first argument but there’s a non sequitur in the second in saying “IF, these reports are true” and then immediately suppressing the “IF” to consider them as definitely true no matter what and state in the same breath “Therefore we have TWO very good reasons, to discard this fearmongering”. Sorry, the second one is NOT a “very good reason” due to your own initial admission of doubt.

    2. I am so glad that you brought up the issue of the fly saucers and the silos and non- functional missile systems, because this isn’t the first time about any part of that story, old news run again as a repeat performance, and there is so much more to the story than that both true and false these stories are probably just testing the waters to see how the public responds and therefore how to play it so as to sell a story with the least resistance.

  31. It is really quite amusing. The war is not about Ukraine, or even Oil and Gas, it is about Empire.
    All Empires get rich by stealing resources from the conquered / occupied vassals. America (the US) occupied Central and South America and stole from them. They then moved to Asia and finally Europe.For a while, like Britain, they took raw resources and returned manufactured goods at a huge profit. Once they stopped manufacturing, like Britain, and exported “Intellectual Property”, finance and “Financial Services” , like Britain, the end was in sight.
    Their only power was/is the power to harm a country if the refuse to remit the resources and taxes. When bribes, bullying and bombs no longer intimidate then the Empire is over.
    The Irony is that the US created the Taliban-Mujahideen to defeat the Russians and ended up being destroyed by their creation. Mary Shelley is laughing hysterically.
    What the American masses do not understand is that when the US is defeated and NATO is disbanded, their standard of living will drop to that of Guatemala or Haiti.
    US skills that built cars and computers and a civil society, have disappeared and will not return in our lifetimes.
    The reason for war (against Russia, China, Terrorism, Vietnam, N Korea, poverty, Drugs, MAGA et al) is simple :
    “War can be used to arouse human passion and patriotic feelings of loyalty to the nation’s leaders. No amount of sacrifice in the name of victory will be rejected. Resistance is viewed as treason. But, in times of peace, people become resentful of high taxes, shortages, and bureaucratic intervention. When they become disrespectful of their leaders, they become dangerous. No government has long survived without enemies and armed conflict. War, therefore, has been an indispensable condition for “stabilising society.”
    The organisation of society for the possibility of war is its principal political stabiliser…. It has enabled societies to maintain necessary class distinctions, and it has insured the subordination of the citizens to the state by virtue of the residual war powers inherent in the concept of nationhood.”
    1966 Report from Iron Mountain.

    We (you) can’t win by pacifism, you need to give people a new enemy to hate.
    The Dems understand this and will never give up on ‘demonising’ Trump’, without him there is no “enemy”.
    “Be nice” gets people into church, but “Kill the Motherfuckers” gets them onto the streets and creating change.

  32. This is from a few days ago and well worth checking out (26 mins):
    .

    Jeffrey Sachs: end Ukraine proxy war or face “armageddon”
    .

    Jeffrey Sachs joins The Grayzone’s Max Blumenthal and Aaron Maté to discuss escalating nuclear rhetoric in Ukraine proxy war, the bombing of the Nord Stream pipelines, and why a diplomatic off-ramp is more urgent than ever.
    .

  33. The US thinks, “We are the World”. Really, it is “we are A world”, just one of many and a very, very fake world constructed not by nature but by Hollywood and Disney. So logic and reason don’t apply. It is all about the story. And momentary satisfaction. This will continue until the American “world” is revealed as a facade.Walk through a door and see nothing there. That is why multipolarity matters so much. One earth, many worlds. https://julianmacfarlane.substack.com/p/one-earth-many-worlds?

  34. Most people I know, here in the exceptional nation, have zero interest in the Ukraine conflict. They neither hate Russians nor cheer for Ukrainians, and haven’t any concern about immanent nuclear war. They are totally preoccupied with their everyday lives and get far more worked up about the prices at the pump and the grocery store than about some far-off war where both sides, they figure, are at fault. Come up with a way to reach them, the ordinary people, and you can change the world. The bad news is that truthful blogs like this one have no effect on them. The good news is that neither does the lying MSM. It usually takes something like a new religion, be it Xianity or Islam or Communism, to grab their attention…for a while.

    1. Old folks are lucky in that sense because rheumatisms, arthritis, cancers, ulcers and other constant physical pains keep their minds off the nuclear peril while young folks only have the occasional toothache to fall back on… :o)

  35. WW2 was started on fiction also The 1938 Munich Appeasement was the start

    1. WWI too! You mean the world would erupt in blood, sweat and tears because a student shot an archduke who was not even popular, handsome or charismatic?

  37. Soooo, what to do? Let’s address that question. All we are doing is complaining, but what else is there? We have two basic needs in order to handle things differently. One is that we’re all gadflies and we need a voice, and the other is that we need to be collected in one place so we can become a force. Conversation about that is what I am trying to stimulate. It’s the most important conversation to be having.

      What is needed is a party of the working class to oppose war and overthrow capitalism and nationalism, the causes of wars. We need a socialist revolution. Capitalism will destroy the entire planet, that is already evident by past crimes, as exposed by Julian Assange, and current delusions of grandeur by both capitalist parties and the military industrial complex. The Socialist Equality Party has been exposing the lies of the capitalist parties and their servile media for years, and particularly against war with Russia and China. Read the World Socialist Web Site and engage in the conversations there.

    2. Just who are you, Suzanne?
      I smell a rat. Go have a conversation and report back your findings.

        1. Thank you, I am happy to learn of your website and will recommend it to friends.

    3. …learn about your stinking rotten system of money creation and issuance and the nature of money…stop voting for these miserable bankster puppets…

    4. If we are collected in one place that makes it easier for them to round us up.

  38. Those in power are working against the people to keep things dark and unseen.

    1. sorry, i meant to add, to the above direct quote of the last sentence, that it’s the other way around: they want to keep us in the dark and their activities secret because they work against us.

        Of course they are. Why do you think Julian Assange is in prison and driven to his death? He exposed the crimes.

    2. …”those in power” in ‘murca are unelected plutocrat$…it has always been so….

      … if/when the brain-laundered, pathetic supporters of these stinking republican and democrat puppet politicians ever become aware of/knowledgeable about, ‘Who creates our money?’ ‘How do they do it?’ ‘Who gets to use/direct the newly created money first?’ ‘What is the source of value of what we call ‘money’? etc., there will be a whole lot less puppet politicians worldwide…

      …the vaaaaaast majority of murcans’ and the rest of the ‘western world’ are butt-ignorant about ‘the money’…

      Absolutely, that is the stated goal of all followers of Leo Strauss. Keep the masses ignorant of their real motivations, as if the proles knew the pitchforks would come out. Or, worse, the proles would refuse to participate in their own demise.

      1. It seems like Caitlin doesn’t care about who she is talking to that she allows this abusive posting to go unchallenged.

        1. Maybe Gloria is a paying advertizer. Many paper based media accept ads that are seemingly news, the late Paul Harvey was great at doing that on radio.
