“CHINA BAD”, And Other Notes From The Edge Of The Narrative Matrix
CAitlin Johnstone: The planet is ruled by a tyrannical oligarchy which uses governments as weapons to destroy disobedient nations while churning out news stories about how those nations needed to be destroyed because they were tyrannical and undemocratic. ...

Freedom Rider: The U.S. Can’t Control the World
Margaret Kimberley: The imperatives of the United States hegemon require treating the rest of the world as either willing vassals or as sworn enemies.

Excerpt From My New Book, Notes From The Edge Of The Narrative Matrix
Caitlin Johnstone: The real underlying currency of our world is not gold, nor bureaucratic fiat, nor even military might. The real underlying currency of our world is narrative, and the ability to control it. ... If you look at what all these think tanks, NGOs, media outlets and grant making networks that billionaires pour their money into actually do, it ultimately boils down to controlling the dominant stories that people tell about what’s going on in their world. ...

Opposing US Imperialism Shouldn’t Depend On Ideology: Notes From The Edge Of The Narrative Matrix
Caitlin Johnstone: A government that is currently bombing other countries is worse than a government that isn’t. ... So much propaganda has gone into manipulating westerners into believing that dropping explosives on human beings is fine and normal. People fail to recognize the horror solely because they’ve been propagandized ... In liberal free democracies you’re allowed to think, speak and vote however you want, but they train you how to think, speak and vote from birth, and they keep on training you until the day you die. ...

Freedom Rider: Andrew Cuomo and the Black Political Class
Margaret Kimberley: Black politicians shamelessly rallied to Cuomo, ridiculously comparing him to Emmett Till and the Central Park Five, in hopes that he will dispense patronage their way if he remains in office. ... Far from being the hero of New York’s COVID-19 crisis in 2020 he actually contributed to the deaths of thousands of people. ... Cuomo allowed COVID-19 infected patients to be sent to nursing homes, where they infected other patients and staff. ... also worked with the nursing home lobby to absolve them of legal liability. ... he still has goodies to distribute and perhaps two more budget cycles to dispense patronage.

The Problem Isn’t Human Nature, The Problem Is A Few Manipulative Sociopaths
Caitlin Johnstone: If we don’t like how things are, we should knock it off. Stop waging wars. Stop exploiting and impoverishing each other. Stop killing the ecosystem. Don’t do those nutty things. ... The self-destructive behavioral patterns we’re seeing play out in our species are not the result of some unalterable feature inherent in our nature. This is evidenced by the existence of many human beings whose behavior is kind, gentle, generous, and collaborative. ...

False Spirituality Is The Friend Of Corrupt Power. True Spirituality Is Its Enemy.
Caitlin Johnstone: False spirituality serves corrupt power. ... True spirituality means expanding consciousness of what’s true and real, both within and without. ... Only by shining the light of truth inwardly and bringing our endarkened aspects into consciousness can we extend our roots downward in the way our spirit craves. ... We survive by purging ourselves of inner falseness and outer falseness, thereby reaching the level of maturity needed to shift to a collaboration-based planetary civilization where we work in harmony with each other and with our ecosystem for the common good...

BREAKING: Anonymous Sources Say US-Targeted Government Did An Invisible Bad Thing
Caitlin Johnstone: “It’s true that the thing which was done was not bad enough to have hurt any American or to have affected the observable universe in any way that Americans can verify by observation, but it was definitely bad enough to justify strengthening our military presence against the bad country,” the official said. ... When another source familiar with the matter was asked if the US government would be providing the public with any evidence that the bad thing had in fact happened ... the source said “Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha.”... “Oh wait you’re serious, let me laugh even harder...

Freedom Rider: Establishment Role in Anti-Asian Bigotry
Margaret Kimberley: The media in this country always use non-white people as the focus of suspicion. ... But China looms large as the biggest target of white supremacist bias. Their crime is daring to have successfully remained a socialist state which has survived for more than 70 years and to be on the verge of surpassing the U.S. economically. ...

A Nation That’s Always At War Has No Moral Authority: Notes From The Edge Of The Narrative Matrix
Caitlin Johnstone: Liberals are much, much more comfortable thinking about the spike in anti-Asian hate crimes as a rise in white supremacism caused by Donald Trump than as the inevitable consequence of an aggressive imperialist propaganda campaign against China. ... Talking about the spike in anti-Asian hate crimes as just the result of white supremacism and not imperialist propaganda against China facilitated by white supremacism is a service to white supremacism ...

Freedom Rider: Ending Poverty in the United States
Margaret Kimberley: President Franklin Roosevelt made profound changes in the US political-economic structure, while Joe Biden only does temporary patchwork on the late-stage capitalist carcass. ... No one should be fooled into thinking that the American Rescue Plan is an adequate solution to high rates of poverty.
