Lately in real life as well as online, people asked me how it’s even possible to know the truth. They are bewildered by all of the lies swirling around. Especially now that so many people have (for good reason) lost faith in the establishment media.
Is the truth something we simply cannot know? Only God knows the absolute truth but we can certainly approximate it pretty well. You need time, patience, passion, and a good strategy.
Blizzard of Lies
The first hurdle is recognizing that you’re constantly lied to. If you choose to believe what you’re spoonfed on the nightly news, I can understand that. We’re kept quite busy and they create that news to be digestible and placating.
But I consider it a positive development in America that polls continue to show people have lost faith in the major media. I also love that many of these lie factories, like the New Your Times and the Washington Post, have put themselves behind paywalls. I love it when enemies hobble themselves!
Once you’re past the major media, you find yourself in the wild, wild West where you’re confronted with a dizzying array of theories about what’s really going on. Including some entertaining notions like David Icke’s theory that shapeshifting reptilians are running the world.
It’s easy to feel lost.
Let’s say, however, that you want to roll your sleeves up and gain a foothold on a topic. When it comes to anything but especially geopolitics, this should be your first question:
This is very important. For example, if you have no idea why the US would want to subvert China, then you’re at a disadvantage when watching the news about China. If you see no reason to be skeptical, then you’re naturally going to be less skeptical.
Follow the Money
But if you know that for years US leaders have expressed alarm about Chinese success on the world stage, you have your first clue.
Wars almost often have multiple dimensions. You may find ethnic, religious or nationalist strands for example. So you can look beyond greed, but greed is going to be a part of it and therefore can yield clues.
Know also that most wars, if you dig deep, have some sort of greed factor. Most wars are resource wars, driven by a lust for wealth and power. But because common people are generally not ruthless enough to agree to wars for economic reasons, the government makes up lies and tells us “they” are terrorists or human rights abusers or whatever the elites need to say to get people primed for war.
Sometimes there’s a grain of truth to the narrative and other times it’s a complete fabrication. It doesn’t matter as long as most people will swallow it. Then the script is fed to the major media. If you haven’t seen the video I posted about these puppets, check it out! It’s stunning.
If you become accustomed to debunking propaganda, you will see the same patterns over and over and over again. Once you’ve seen the same pattern play out a dozen times, it’s easy to recognize when you see it again.
For example, if you see there is a “revolution” somewhere, you should immediately be skeptical. If you see there is a “terror attack” or a “rising insurgency,” you should be skeptical.
You should understand that countries use false-flag terror and fake revolutions and insurgencies to destabilize other countries. It’s standard practice.
For example, the US openly stated we were going to destabilize Syria. And then we destabilized Syria! The plot was revealed by Seymour Hersh in the New Yorker. The article is, The Redirection and you can still read it online.
Countries also prop up dictators and overthrow democratic governments even while they tell all of us they are spreading democracy. True democracy is not in the interests of the power elites but having you think otherwise is in their interests. So they preach democracy and freedom by practice plunder and dominance.
If you doubt this, Google Operation Ajax.
For a more recent example, notice what happened after the 2003 invasion of Iraq, the leaders there wanted their economy to be like the Switzerland of the Middle East, where the country’s wealth was shared among the Iraqi people. The US blocked that and forced them to allow Western corporate exploitation.
The Ziocon-controlled US behaves more like a vulture than a freedom fighter. And if you give it some thought, you’ll see that this is a lot easier to swallow than the nonsense they peddle on the news.
MUST Read Books!
For a basic primer on how the West exploits other countries economically, read Confessions of an Economic Hit Man by John Perkins. For a basic primer on how the media manufactures consent, read Noam Chomsky’s Manufacturing Consent. These are classics.
You may also want to read Naomi Klein’s The Shock Doctrine, which reveals information that will almost certainly shock the uninitiated. Another classic is The Grand Chessboard: American Primacy and Its Geostrategic Imperatives by Zbigniew Brzezinski.
Yes, you have to read books! You can’t poke around here and there on the Internet and put the pieces together. If you don’t want to invest the time, that’s understandable but at least realize that you don’t even know what you don’t know and act accordingly.
Someone who has spent decades reading will find it vexing to be confronted by people who are obviously ignorant and, oddly enough, often arrogant!
Even if you do tons of research and some topics begin to snap into place, stay humble and openminded. As George Orwell said, knowing what’s right under your nose is a constant struggle. That really is true.
If you devote yourself to the project, you will gain a foothold on some topics. But you must pick and choose. There isn’t enough time to gain mastery over everything. Though if you gain mastery over 2-3 geopolitical regions, you can make some educated guesses about what’s going on elsewhere.
Even with the best efforts, you will miss things. Arrogance blinds people. When something suddenly snaps into place, people who were blind their whole life suddenly get a glimpse of what’s really going on, it can go to their heads.
Just recently, I realized that I’ve had little pieces of a bigger puzzle for years and years, but failed to see a major dimension of the picture. It just snapped into place in recent weeks!
This recent revelation reminds me once again to stay humble and openminded. Especially as I look back and ask myself, “How did I miss this for so long? It was so obvious!”
Mastery is Satisfying
The good news is that you can gain such mastery over a particular area that you really do know your stuff. You recognize propaganda instantly, you know your talking points, and you can hold your own in any debate.
I’ve spent my entire adult life gaining mastery over the subject of Palestine. I know that conflict very well, and I will take on anyone, anyplace, anytime with full confidence on that particular topic…and that topic alone. There’s nothing else I’d claim at that level.
But what that mastery proves is the possibility. I read a wide variety of books and in the early days, they were almost all written by the Zionists themselves. Know thine enemy applies here, but you also must read from every available angle you can get your hands on if you want to piece together some semblance of truth.
You Are As Capable as Anyone…
Today when I suspect foul play, digging around usually confirms my suspicions. It is all about asking who benefits, following the money, and looking for patterns. The more you do it, the easier it gets.
But don’t take my word for it. Never take anyone’s word for it and be suspicious of people who demand you believe what they say. Cast a skeptical eye and see if what you’re being told passes the sniff test.
You can do it because discernment is a gift from our Creator. As Jesus (as) said, “You shall know the truth and the truth shall set you free.”
Be an optimist and remember the Truth is Out There—because even if it was a fictional TV series, the X-Files got that right. 🙂
