Humanity’s Madness Would Not Be Possible Without Extensive Marketing
Caitlin Johnstone: Without extensive marketing it would never have occurred to people to worry about nations on the other side of the world who have never harmed them in any way. ... Without extensive marketing it would never have occurred to people that scores of species going extinct forever every single day is not cause for extreme alarm. ... Without extensive marketing it would never have occurred to people that a two-party system which promotes the same policies in both parties should be called “democracy”. ... Without extensive marketing it would never have occurred to people that in order to give money to poor people, you should give it to rich people... Visit Website ]

Freedom Rider: Campaign Confusion in the Age of Collapse
Margaret Kimberley: “Trump is at his worst and the Democrats are, too.” ... The 2020 presidential election has created multiple episodes of mass psychosis across the country. President Donald Trump bears much of the blame by his very presence in the White House. Four years after the trauma of his electoral college victory he still knows how to trigger millions of people. ... But people who really talk about the radical change needed get no attention. ... Millions of people look to Election Day to breathe a sigh of relief, when in fact they will have to struggle regardless of the outcome... Visit Website ]

Nothing Will Fundamentally Change: Notes From The Edge Of The Narrative Matrix
Caitlin Johnstone: US foreign policy is far more important than US domestic policy. It affects far more people ... To be clear, any nation in the world would be fully justified in interfering in US elections, since the US is by far the very worst offender in foreign election meddling. ... And that’s just election interference; it says nothing of invasions, coups, proxy wars and other regime change operations the US wages. ...

Corporate Fluffers: Notes From The Edge Of The Narrative Matrix
Caitlin Johnstone: Do you not think it odd that the single most important civic duty you’re told you’ll ever perform is always a vote for more war, more oligarchy, more authoritarianism, more ecocide, more exploitation and more plutocratic theft? ... You can have anxiety without being poor but you can’t be poor without anxiety. If you want to solve the mental health crisis, start by making sure people have enough money to function. ... Those who’ve done real inner work and transformed themselves know there’s no good reason humanity as a whole can’t do the same... Visit Website ]

Freedom Rider: Biden and Liberal Censorship
Margaret Kimberley: We can thank liberals for turning social media platforms into the biggest champions of censorship in the country. ... The big technology companies are on the Democratic side of the duopoly. ... The corporate media and their liberal friends may pretend to target the right, but it is leftists who they really want to silence. ... The left reveal the plot twists of the kabuki play and must be shut up and shut down. ...

America Has No Allies, Only Hostages
Caitlin Johnstone: The unofficial doctrine of the empire-like cluster of international allies that is loosely centralized around the United States does not recognize the sovereignty of other nations, much less respect them as equals. ... This empire takes it as a given that it has every right to determine what every nation in the world does, who their leaders will be, where their resources will go, and what their military posture on the world stage will be. ... If a government refuses to accept the empire’s right to determine these things, it is targeted, sabotaged, attacked, and eventually replaced with a puppet regime... Visit Website ]

Dogshit Presidents, And Other Notes From The Edge Of The Narrative Matrix
Caitlin Johnstone: An entire globe-spanning empire depends on the American people not waking up to what’s going on in their government. ... Know what’s way more destructive than a dogshit president? A system which consistently ensures that voters always have to elect a dogshit president. ... Pundits who babble about the “complexities of the Middle East” are just obfuscating the simple fact that we shouldn’t be there. ...

Freedom Rider: Left Out of the Debate
Margaret Kimberley: Both of the duopoly political parties are happy captives of their respective donor classes. The names of the oligarchs change but they all believe in keeping as much of their money as possible and making sure that there is no discussion of any alternative configuration. Their control negates the ability of the government to address the people’s needs. ... The homeless could be housed with government spending. ...

Call for Fox Media News Monopoly to be Broken up: Rupert Murdoch an “arrogant cancer on … democracy” – Rudd
Juan Cole: In Australia, Murdoch’s Newscorp controls 60 to 70 percent of the metropolitan news market, provoking Rudd, a progressive, to say, “Murdoch has become a cancer, an arrogant cancer, on our democracy.” ... In the US, Fox has what is often the most-watched cable news station in the country, which it runs as a propaganda mouthpiece for the Republican Party. It systematically takes an anti-science, anti-worker point of view. ... The US was founded on diversity of viewpoints. Now we just have the viewpoints of six billionaires.

The Status Quo Is The Real ‘Existential Threat’: Notes From The Edge Of The Narrative Matrix
Caitlin Johnstone: War is mass murder. Speaking out against it is more important than people’s emotional comfort. ... A news outlet which does not constantly inform its audience of all their government’s misdeeds around the world is not a news outlet. ... Trump is not an existential threat, the status quo is an existential threat. Trump is just the ugly face at the status quo’s front desk. ...

Every Presidential Election Since The Iraq War Has Featured Candidates Who Supported It
Caitlin Johnstone: The United States has done many, many profoundly evil things throughout its history, but the 2003 invasion of Iraq is surely in the top ten. It killed over a million human beings, destabilized an entire region, led to the rise of ISIS and Al Nusra and facilitated a rush of new Middle Eastern interventionism, all to no benefit for the American people whatsoever, and it is utterly unforgivable. ... Yet there have been no consequences for it. ... No real changes of any kind were made to American military, governmental, political or media institutions to ensure that a similar atrocity never happens again, because the drivers of US foreign policy had every intention of doing it again...

Freedom Rider: Liberal Sympathy for Trump
Margaret Kimberley; Everyone reveals their true self in a time of turmoil. A crisis forces exposure which can no longer be kept hidden. ... The phony resistance immediately showed that their opposition to Trump is no indicator of solidarity with the people. Their allegiance to the ruling classes always comes out whenever it is time for people to speak forcefully. ... Anyone unwilling to show sympathy to Trump for any reason is showing righteous indignation and is to be applauded.

A Wrong Turn At Albuquerque: Notes From The Edge Of The Narrative Matrix
Caitlin Johnstone: If all your rabbit holing through information about conspiracies and establishment power leads you to believe that the world is being secretly rescued by the president of the United States, you made a wrong turn at Albuquerque. ...

Truth Is The First Casualty In Cold War: Notes From The Edge Of The Narrative Matrix
Caitlin Johnstone: I see the Democratic Party as the main obstacle to real change in the world’s most powerful and destructive government, so it will be much easier to cleanly attack once it’s in a position of power and still advancing oligarchy and imperialism. ... Whenever troops from your country are attacked in another country, your anger does not belong with anyone in the other country but with the powerful people in your country who sent them there. ...

Freedom Rider: Breonna Taylor and Black Life
Margaret Kimberley: Reactions to the Breonna Taylor murder, settlement and verdict all have one thing in common: Black people’s inability to protect our lives. ... The statistic which informed us that one such killing occurs every 28 hours is an indication of our powerlessness as a group. Of course there is anguish and trauma among people who still do not have a say in how they are treated and who can expect the legal system to act against their interests. ... Black communities are over-policed, residents are targeted for arrest for any offense, sentenced unfairly, and killed for any reason. Prosecutors are cozy with police. They work together to fill the jails and keep the mass incarceration system running... Visit Website ]
