The Left Isn’t Failing, It’s Being Sabotaged: Notes From The Edge Of The Narrative Matrix
Caitlin Johnstone: In later years we’re going to learn about some of the covert operations which US intelligence agencies and their proxies were using to smash the rise of socialism in America today and a lot of people are going to feel silly for all their remarks blaming the state of the left on leftists. ... COINTELPRO-like tactics most certainly continue today, especially online. ... Really we’re all just going to have to wake up. To become more conscious of our own inner processes as well as the outer dynamics which cause suffering... Visit Website ]

Freedom Ride: How Not to Celebrate Juneteenth
Margaret Kimberley: Juneteenth has become the latest iteration of liberal capture of Black politics, opportunistic virtue signaling, and the intentional misrepresentation of America’s history. ... Corrupt and avaricious corporations honor Juneteenth and cynical politicians give it great attention. ... Juneteenth is an opportunity to tell the history of the enslaved people who freed themselves when they could and joined the army to form the United States Colored Troops (USCT). The untold importance of the Emancipation Proclamation is that it established the right of escaped people to join the army... Visit Website ]

The Difference Between Totalitarian Regimes And Free Democracies

In totalitarian regimes they fund terrorist groups to create instability. In free democracies they fund terrorist groups to create stability. ... In totalitarian regimes political speech is heavily regulated by the government. In free democracies political speech is heavily regulated by the government via Silicon Valley. ...

Poverty Is A Weapon Of The Powerful: Notes From The Edge Of The Narrative Matrix
Caitlin Johnstone: Keep people too poor to fund political campaigns and you keep them powerless. Keep them too busy to research and they can’t see through your propaganda. Keep them desperate and you can get them hating each other instead of hating you. ... They’re not just robbing ordinary people so they can have more for themselves; the poverty itself actually benefits them. They would benefit from keeping you poor even if it gave them nothing else. ...

Freedom Rider: The Truth About Defunding Police
Margaret Kimberley: The premise of defunding police is well intentioned but faulty. ... It isn’t hard to understand why change in this area is so difficult. As of 2018, police departments in this country received more than $118 billion in funding. Only the military in the United States and China receive more money. ... Community control of the police should be the goal but that can’t happen unless all government functions address human needs. ... Community control of police cannot be separated from demands for peoples’ control over any other aspect of their lives... Visit Website ]

Was there a Wuhan lab leak? An inquiry won’t dig out the truth. It will deepen the deception
Jonathan Cook: For many years, scientists at labs like Wuhan’s have conducted Frankenstein-type experiments on viruses. ... Viruses are known to have escaped from labs like Wuhan’s many times before. ... Nicholas Wade, a former New York Times science writer, set out in May, in an in-depth investigation ... the Wuhan lab was, it seems, cooperating with the US scientific establishment and WHO officials on its virus experiments – what is known, in scientific parlance, as “gain-of-function” research. ... Gain-of-function experiments had been paused during the second Obama administration ... under Trump, US officials restarted the programme and were reportedly funding work at the Wuhan lab through a US-based medical organisation called the EcoHealth Alliance...

Freedom Rider: Biden Breaks His Promises
Margaret Kimberley: Black people have nothing to show for a Biden presidency despite turning out in droves to put him in office. ... Joe Biden has yet to make good on any campaign promise he made to voters. The $2,000 stimulus became just $1,400. There is no minimum wage increase. He promised a public option for the Affordable Care Act but now says that isn’t going to happen. He is cutting back on his infrastructure initiative ... Biden said he supported a paltry $10,000 in student loan relief only to back away from that too. ... The moment is ripe to acknowledge that this system is a complete sham and exists only to help the 1% do as much as they can to oppress the 99%... Visit Website ]

The US Empire Is A Self-Reinforcing Trauma Factory
Caitlin Johnstone: The US status quo is inherently traumatizing, because a status quo which maintains a permanent underclass working for slave wages 100 percent guarantees generation after generation of highly traumatized people. ... This in turn guarantees more violent crime, which in turn has led to the largest prison population on the planet. ... Hurt people hurt people ... The trauma inflicted by the “war on terror” is a self-reinforcing feedback loop which creates more extremism which in turn is used to justify more bombings and more military expansionism in those regions...

The US Isn’t An Israel Puppet, Israel Isn’t A US Puppet: It’s One Empire
Caitlin Johnstone: There is no real “Israel” or “America”, there’s just the one empire. Lobbying, financial support, propaganda etc are just some of the glue that’s required to hold together an empire that doesn’t officially exist. ... The empire will use any ideology to advance imperial interests, whether it be Zionism, Christian fundamentalism, white supremacism, Islamic extremism, or woke progressivism. ... The antidote to this dynamic is of course to keep getting more conscious ... Their job is to keep truth hidden and unconscious... Visit Website ]

Freedom Rider: The Palestine Litmus Test
Margaret Kimberley: There aren’t many issues which clearly and unequivocally delineate right from wrong. ... The question of justice for the Palestinian people and their right to be protected by international law is one which gives no wiggle room for ifs, ands, or buts. ... Israel’s apartheid system is of such long standing and is so brazen that millions of people feel not only outrage but an insult to their own personal integrity and now speak up though they once demurred. ...

Freedom Rider: The End of Low Wage Work
Margaret Kimberley: The combination of unemployment and additional stimulus support has made staying home a better economic decision than working for peanuts under stressful conditions. .. The latest popular lament in the United States is not about how the people suffer under a predatory system. In usual fashion, the people themselves are turned into villains when they refuse to acquiesce to their oppression. ... Low wage workers have made the rational decision to take a break. Why shouldn’t they? They have no safety net, no guarantee of housing or health care or child care or transportation... Visit Website ]

The Israel Narrative Is Crumbling Because Of Phone Cameras And The Internet
Caitlin Johnstone: The New York Times has been cartoonishly re-writing its own reporting in a desperate attempt to make Israel look like an innocent victim of unprovoked attacks instead of the obvious aggressor against people protesting a brutal apartheid regime backed by an entire empire. ... Awareness is spreading of Israeli apartheid brutality for the same reason awareness is spreading of US police brutality: the internet combined with smartphone cameras. Seeing is believing. Seeing brings change. ... This is why the powerful are working so hard to censor the internet. If they can’t control what our dominant narratives are going to be, they will not be able to rule us...

Freedom Rider: Progressives Capitulate to Biden
Margaret Kimberley: No one is holding Joe Biden’s “feet to the fire” or pushing him left or taking any of the other make believe actions which were meant to silence the Democratic Party’s left wing. ... All of the policies that rank and file Democrats want to see realized are again left behind though their party has the power to enact them.

Capitalism Rewards Sociopathy: Notes From The Edge Of The Narrative Matrix
Caitlin Johnstone: You can tell how backwards our society is by how much easier it is to thrive in it as a sociopath than if you have any other serious mental disorder. ... US presidents always get praise for the small smattering of half-decent things they do, but no blame for the far, far greater mountain of evil things the US empire does during their presidency. People look at the everyday butchery and oppression of the empire as normal, required stuff. ... just think about it: powerful elites are engaging in mass-scale mind control to justify murder and genocide around the world.

Freedom Rider: No Justice Without a Movement
Margaret Kimberley: The issues are larger than most of us are willing to admit. The changes needed are fundamental to a country which puts anti-black racism at the center of politics, law and economics. The system demands that Black people be locked up, displaced, red lined, and prevented from having full citizenship rights. ... Police killings are just one manifestation of a fundamentally unjust nation. ... we must be honest. After the murder was filmed and made public the police in Minneapolis acted as they always do. Chauvin and the other police were fired and they hoped the people would be mollified. But they weren’t arrested until someone set fire to a police precinct... Visit Website ]
