Brilliant Manipulation – Shocked and Awed

I have a strong suspicion that we, the citizens of the United States are being brilliantly manipulated. It’s not an original idea – the evidence comes from hundreds of articles, Facebook posts written or shared by friends, and conversations with people who are at the very least, somewhat like-minded.

If you are of a similar mind – the past two weeks have been utterly exhausting on an emotional and mental level. Beyond that, the past 18-months were also oftentimes traumatic. Yes, I’m talking about the campaign, the election, the inauguration, the first days of Il Douche’s presidency – but I’m also talking about the events of the world which most Americans have been hearing as a sort of background or sideline noise. To use a sports metaphor – we thought the action was happening on the field, but then we realized that there were fistfights going on the sidelines, and finally we have started to notice (some of us) that the real competition was happening all around us in the stands. This was not an election about two flawed candidates – which is what we were told again and again by the corporate owned media. It was not a match between red and blue. Nor was it a power struggle between the liberal and corporate wings of the Democratic party or the conservative and racist wings of the Republican party. That was the sideline match designed to distract those of us who saw that the game on the field was already decided. The actual battle/struggle/fight/war was being waged in the stands among the spectators as we were indoctrinated with artificial ideologies, bombarded with contradictory ‘new’ stories, and emotionally drained with a shock and awe campaign that has left us ripe for manipulation.

The billionaire masters (because that is what they are, don’t fool yourself into thinking otherwise) are getting very close to a world where automation can take care of their needs. They will not need the masses to cook, clean up their mess, drive them around, build their products, deliver their products, or do much of anything. 8 billion people is a huge drain on the resources of this planet and the crowds are getting a little too close to their walled estates. As technology eliminates the need for low skilled workers(and increasingly workers in high skilled fields like medicine and law too) the billionaire masters are left with a question – “What do we do with all these useless people?” It’s nice to think they will focus on altruism and try to create a world where everyone has food, shelter, security, medicine, and the ability to be a unique and wonderful being – but somehow, when I look at the billionaires – even Bill Gates and Warren Buffet sitting comfortably on a stage and telling us everything will be fine – I have a very hard time believing they have our best interests in mind.

Here is the question they are asking.

What do we do with all the people we don’t need anymore?

I can only come up with a few possible answers.
1) Take care of them all (which seems very unlikely)
2) Kill them all (which also seems very unlikely)
3) Ignore them all (which is not only unlikely but impossible)
4) Use them as tools to increase power, security, etc for the Billionaires
5) Get them to kill each other
6) Take care of some (useful) and find a way to eliminate the rest (not useful)

That’s as much as I can come up with.

This election wasn’t about politics. It was about the billionaires taking control of the most powerful country on the planet. If you think any billionaire on the planet has more in common with you than with another billionaire, you are deluding yourself. Right now, the billionaires are in control and it is very likely that they have already decided what they are going to do with us. Everything else is just theater to keep us from seeing the truth.

If you are one of those they consider useful you are lucky. We can already see what is happening to those they do not consider useful. Just look at the poorest and least protected people in the world – and then look at how we have slammed the door in their faces and will be building a wall (or many walls) to keep them out. Everything that happens from this point on, has already been decided.
