Security Theater

Monday, January 17th, 2022

I’m disturbed, yet not surprised at the number of people who willingly accept totalitarianism, who chase after the illusion of security and safety by silencing any information that contradicts the “One Official Story Explaining Everything,” even if that story is shown to be transparently false.

So many people are scrambling to find a reliable arbiter of truth because they are terrified by the reality of having to figure things out for themselves, never having been taught how. So they look to the historical purveyors of information they trust to be “true,” what we now call “corporate” or “legacy” media, and place their trust in them, feeling confident they now know who’s to blame for the relentless stream of lies coming down on them daily for years and years.

As it has been said time and time again, “this too, shall pass.”
