Abnormalize The Status Quo
Caitlin Johnstone: We are having a wildly insane status quo thrust upon us by the powerful and for the benefit of the powerful. ... We need to see clearly that health is normal and sickness is abnormal, whether you’re talking about an individual or a society. ... It’s not normal for there to be enough wealth to feed and care for everyone and yet instead have people with unfathomable amounts of money while others die of lack. ... It’s not normal for us to be destroying our ecosystem ... we can’t create a healthy society as long as we allow ourselves to be manipulated into the belief that our backwards, insane status quo is what normality looks like ... So abnormalize the status quo ... Abnormalize it by holding a clear idea in your mind of what a healthy society would look like... Visit Website ]

Don’t Forgive Bastards: Notes From The Edge Of The Narrative Matrix
Caitlin Johnstone: “Forgiveness” is a concept that is constantly exploited by manipulative abusers. ... Without warmongering and militarism, sociopathic intelligence agencies wouldn’t be needed. ... Progressive reform always fails in the US because it’s the helm of an empire held together by endless war and its entire system is rigged to keep everyone poor and propagandized so that those wars continue. ... QAnon is toxic because it’s a fake, decoy version of important truths: that the media are lying, the official elected US government isn’t really in control, and a great awakening is needed...

Freedom Rider: TikTok and the War on China
Margaret Kimberley: Every charge that Trump and his minions make against Chinese companies is true for US corporations, which have been spying on Americans and the rest of the world for decades. ... The seemingly strange Trump administration attack on the TikTok and WeChat platforms are just the latest iterations of an economic, rhetorical and propaganda war against the People's Republic of China. ... “Pompeo claimed that China sends propagandists into high schools, colleges and even PTA meetings.” ... The National Security Agency (NSA) has access to every electronic communication carried out in this country. American social media platforms such as Facebook and Twitter routinely turn over user information to the CIA and the FBI. ... “TikTok is surely no more dangerous than any corporation we deal with now.”...

The Undoing Of Illusions: Notes From The Edge Of The Narrative Matrix
Caitlin Johnstone: Governments have obscenely well-funded intelligence agencies that are literally dedicated to orchestrating secret conspiracies around the world, but if you say they might be conspiring in some part of the world people call you a mentally ill conspiracy theorist. ... A political establishment which thinks it’s crazy and extremist to reduce a $740 billion military budget by 10 percent is a crazy and extremist political establishment. ... All I’m ever writing about here is the undoing of illusions. The undoing of illusions about what’s happening in the world, the undoing of illusions about the media, the undoing of illusions about society, the undoing of illusions about ourselves...

None Of The World’s Worst People Are In Prison: Notes From The Edge Of The Narrative Matrix
Caitlin Johnstone: The main obstacle to humanity forming a collaborative relationship with each other and our ecosystem isn’t because of “human nature”, it’s because manipulative psychopaths keep working their way into power. Finding a way to deal with psychopathy would solve most of our problems. ... Some people find it offensive that I say Trump is no worse than his predecessors. I find it offensive that they ignore the barbarism of Trump’s predecessors. ... Notice how most of the mainstream buzz about psychedelics today is about their usefulness in a turning psychologically troubled people into functional cogs in the machine, not in letting everyone use them so we can all see the insanity of the machine itself...

In Hollywood
Caitlin Johnstone: In Hollywood people who have lost touch with their humanity teach the public how to be human. ... In Hollywood the most fake people in the world teach the public about reality. ... In Hollywood people pretend to be other people saying words that other people wrote telling stories about things which never happened and we base our entire culture on this. ... In Hollywood they make horror movies about a murderous psychopath running around slashing people, instead of making horror movies about the fact that murderous psychopaths rule our entire world right this very moment...

Freedom Rider: How Trump Can Steal the 2020 Election
Margaret Kimberley: “No one in the media or the Democratic Party gives a basic civics lesson or talks about how elections are really stolen.” ... Republicans win the presidency when they steal votes. Democrats need a huge turnout to undo the impact of so-called “spoiled ballots,” electronic vote machine theft and the removal of Democratic voters, i.e. Black people, from the rolls. ... Many states are responding to the COVID-19 pandemic with increased availability of voting by mail instead of at polling places. That process solves one problem but creates many new ones. ... Republicans in states like Wisconsin are still working to remove 120,000 people from the rolls ... provisional ballots ... those are nearly always thrown out and are worthless... Election theft is an American tradition.... Visit Website ]

Regime Change The Media: Notes From The Edge Of The Narrative Matrix
Caitlin Johnstone: America this is serious: if you re-elect Trump, you’ll be trapped in a fascist dystopian oligarchy which will keep robbing you of your rights and wellbeing for the benefit of the powerful and the wealthy. ... And it gets even worse: these things will also be true if you elect Biden. ... Mass media “news” segments tell you what to think. Mass media “opinion” segments tell you how to think. It’s a complete training program. ... There’s no legitimate reason we can’t live in a world where at bare minimum nations just use their militaries for actual defense from actual invasions and stop trying to dominate the planet....

When Corporate Power Is Your Real Government, Corporate Media Is State Media
Caitlin Johnstone: The fact that this same plutocratic class also owns America’s media, which is now so consolidated that it’s almost entirely run by just six corporations, means that the people who run the government also run the media. This allows America’s true rulers to set up a system which promotes narratives that are favorable to their desired status quo. ... look at how power actually moves in that country, and you just see one more tyrannical regime which propagandizes its citizens, brutally cracks down on protesters, deliberately keeps its populace impoverished so they don’t get powerful enough to change things, and attacks any nation which dares to disobey its dictates...

Freedom Rider: Let the Movement Be Radical
Margaret Kimberley: The unprecedented size and diversity of the new protest movement is something that black people should welcome. ... The COVID-19 pandemic drew back the curtain and further exposed a system that is not meant to serve human needs. ... But a strange thing happened in this process. Young white people often led the way in carrying out the most radical acts. ... Unfortunately, there are black people who do not appreciate the significance of this and other actions. ... After years of scorn about the notion of white allyship we are finally seeing it in action. ... We must say good-bye to establishment notions of what is acceptable and what is not... Visit Website ]

As US Eviction Crisis Looms, Remember That Poverty Is Weaponized By The Elite
Caitlin Johnstone: CNBC News reports that Americans are looking at the possibility of up to 40 million evictions in the coming months as unemployment payments expire and a federal moratorium on evictions runs out. ... the USA is largely a third-world country blanketed in first-world narrative ... In a nation where money equals power and power is relative, you necessarily get a ruling plutocratic class which needs to keep everyone else poor in order to maintain their rule. ...

Yankee McYeehaw: Notes From The Edge Of The Narrative Matrix
Caitlin Johnstone: Hi I’m Yankee McYeehaw. My government assistance during the pandemic consists of $1200 and a dick pic while congress passes a $740 billion annual military budget and trillions are funneled to giant corporations, so obviously I’m very very angry at Vladimir Putin and Xi Jinping. ... Opposing the most destructive behaviors of the most powerful government on earth should not be an unusual and controversial position. ... Billionaires are just thieves who commit state-approved thievery. ... If you want actual equality and freedom, you need to fully democratize all narrative control. ...

Freedom Rider: Media Silent as Trump Declares Wars
Margaret Kimberley: “There is no congressional opposition to Trump’s acts of aggression which are literally killing people around the world.” ... While visiting the U.S. Southern Command (SOUTHCOM) in Florida, Trump gave an interview to Noticias Telemundo and said the following, “Something will happen with Venezuela. That’s all I can tell you. Something will be happening with Venezuela.” ... The U.S. is waging war by other means all over the world. ... Israel, the U.S. partner in crime, bombs Iranian defense facilities in hopes that they can finally see their war fantasy come to reality. ...

Cancel Government Secrecy: Notes From The Edge Of The Narrative Matrix
Caitlin Johnstone: Want a healthy world? End secrecy for the powerful, break up all media and fully democratize it, and decriminalize psychedelics. Stop interfering in people’s ability to clearly see what’s going on in their world, in their nation and in themselves, and a healthy system will naturally arise. ... The amount of power you have over other people should have an exactly inverse relationship to your right to privacy. ... It’s the authoritarian mind that thinks it knows exactly what’s best for everyone. ... The first and foremost job of any US president is to serve as a decoy to draw the fire of all public scrutiny toward real power structures. ...

Portland, Capitalism, And Other Notes From The Edge Of The Narrative Matrix
Caitlin Johnstone: If you’ve been shrieking about tyranny over masks and lockdowns but you’re fine with masked anonymous feds invading Portland and kidnapping protesters into unmarked vans, you have replaced your brain with a political party. ... Capitalism will always necessarily lead to authoritarianism, because cutthroat dominators will always be the ones to rise to the top of any capitalist system. ... Nobody who is being successfully manipulated is free, and our world is dominated by mass-scale manipulation. ... In a mad world, conforming to expectations is an act of madness... Visit Website ]
