But don’t take my word for it that everything is a hoax, an illusion. Read this litany from Paul Craig Roberts, former Assistant Treasury Secretary under Reagan, former Wall Street Journal editor, etc.:
“As I write I cannot think of one thing in the entire areas of foreign and domestic policy that the US government has told the truth about in the 21st century. Just as Saddam Hussein had no weapons of mass destruction, Iran has no nukes, Assad did not use chemical weapons, and Putin did not invade and annex Crimea, the jobs numbers are fraudulent, the unemployment rate is deceptive, the inflation measures are understated, and the GDP growth rate is overstated. Americans live in a matrix of total lies.”
Read that last part again: “Americans live in a matrix of total lies.” No, it’s not just you. Yes, things are as bad as they seem. Don’t be ashamed to let on the way you feel. If you cop to it, that encourages others to do the same. Soon, we’re all talking about the problem, and that’s the first step to actually fixing it.
“What can Americans do? Elections are pointless. Presidents, Senators, and US Representatives represent the interest groups that provide their campaign funds, not the voters. In two decisions, the Republican Supreme Court has made it legal for corporations to purchase the government. Those who own the government will decide what it does, not those who vote.
All Americans can do is to accept the serfdom imposed on them or take to the streets and stay in the streets despite being clubbed, tasered, arrested, and shot by the police, who protect the power structure, not the public.
In America, nothing is done for the public. But everything is done to the public.“
