Shape Yourself Into The Perfect Weapon Against The Empire

“If this were a revolution that is fought with physical weaponry, then you should be training every day to use those weapons effectively in that revolution. But this is not a revolution that is being fought with physical weaponry. The frontline of this revolution is propaganda, and the guerrilla psywar that we are fighting against it.

As I never tire of saying, the only thing keeping the imperial status quo in place is propaganda. People would never consent to the exploitation, inequality and murderousness that is intrinsic to the US-centralized empire if they were not propagandized into consenting to it; all that is required to end that consent is to wake people up to the reality that they are being propagandized, because manipulation only works if you don’t know it’s happening.”
And
“In a military revolution you would train with your body and your weapons to fight and kill the enemy. In a psywar, you must train your mind.

You must educate your mind about what’s really going on in the world. Never stop learning, never rest in confidence that you’ve got it all figured out. You can have the feeling that you totally know what’s true or you can have a humble devotion to trying to learn the truth as best you can from moment to moment. You can’t have both.

You must hone your inner sensemaker so that you can perceive reality lucidly amid the confusion and obfuscations of a society that is saturated in propaganda.“
“You must do these things while practicing to become an effective soldier in the decentralized guerrilla psywar against the propaganda of the plutocrat-owned mass media and political class. You must do what you can to help wake people up to the reality that they are being lied to, using whatever tools you have at your disposal.

If you can write at all, write blogs. Write pamphlets. Write tweets. Write comments under influential MSM propaganda pieces.

If you can speak, make videos. Make podcasts. Talk to friends and family. Talk to strangers. Get the truth out there wherever you can.

Protest. Record. Report. Use your inborn creativity to keep finding ways to slip little messages in bottles into the narrative matrix informing people that they are being deceived.

Keep honing yourself in all of these ways, and you will get better and better at it. You will probably suck a bit and make a bunch of mistakes when you first start. Lord knows I did. You’ve got to fight through that awkward learning stage as you hone your weaponry.

You can only learn by doing. ”

    Our Leaders are Stealing from us, and leveraging Fear to do it.
    When was the last time Members of Congress had their entire familes run through an IRS audit, just to make sure NOTHING fishy is going on?

    Why is it they come into office poor, and leave rich? Because they enrich themselves at our expense. The RICH know their secrets, and therefore get special favors (bailouts), to keep the system going.

    The Federal Reserve was partially audited ONCE and we found TRILLIONS were sent around the world off the books! Nobody was JAILED or even PUNISHED for this.

    You are dead on right. Prepare your mind.

    But someone (term2) said only the LEFT fall for the propaganda. This is not true. They are MORE susceptible to the current propaganda.
    But there is more than enough of it to go around.

    Honestly... We don't know most of the truths we think we do know. We "believe" them because they add up, and because we want to, and
    because we can make sense of them. Our desire to be internally consistent overrides even the RIGHTS ability to be scientific most of the time.

    There exist a Left and a Right so we have an identity... But we do NOT control the definition of the identity. That's the first problem in a PsyOp!
    They give us false dichotomies... And we choose, then we defend that view. That is a TRAP!

    Right and Wrong do exist. And they change. It is NOT okay to assassinate our elected leaders. But what do we do when they fail to guarantee our safety?
    Why should we guarantee theirs?

    Some time ago, it was explained that 535 elected officials pretty much DICTATE to all of us. And IMAGINE if you only needed to BUY a simple majority.
    Say 275 to be safe... For CHUMP change to a Billionaire, you could effectively control this place. For Trillionaires (like the Fed and Bankters), it's a GIVEN!
    (Hence the bailouts).

    I doubt I will know the truth before I die! I doubt most of us will... I suspect it is far worse than I can even imagine!

    I am a little off topic but......I just read an article that showed Podesta and the DNC had rehearsed or war gamed a scenario where Trump wins BUT the left refuses to accept election results and start to secede various states. Isn't this........illegal?

    YES! I don't have much time to give a more thought-full reply before leaving for work, but I will definitely share this when I get back home and it falls in line with what I've been thinking for some time (and with those last semi-lucid dreams I have before waking). Just REALLY paying attention to what you're taking in and how it's affecting you allows you to choose what to let in and make more of or not. I'll start the day with so much more clarity than at the end (when more less-than-honest or worthwhile thoughts have crept in and diluted how you REALLY feel and what you REALLY want with a little fear, a little anger, a little negativity taken in), but then I get to sleep, clear the corrupted files, and start fresh again. You definitely can make a difference that can even change the world, but all it takes is a slight shift of blame &/or letting in a flawed premise to start diminishing your effectiveness (one bad bean can taint the whole pot). We'll never be perfect, but the trying is worth it. Thanks for being a positive force!

      ThanQ for your comment.
      The propaganda is shut off while sleeping and the glory of a new day awakens with you. Start every day with a purpose of living your life guided by your own self-interest. Q is the psyop , it is the Great Awakening and the facts destroy the left’s lying narrative.
      Peace to Q.
