Critical Thinking Has Never Been More Important

What they really fear is you

Michael Krieger

There are several reasons I spend so much time discussing and analyzing the current state of affairs. The primary motivation, aside from a drive to share personal opinions and spread awareness, is to encourage people to think critically. I don’t want readers to agree with everything I say, I want people to become inspired to think for themselves.

The ruling class doesn’t want you to think, they want you to simply accept the nonsensical stories they tell you. By contrast, I don’t want readers to blindly accept any of my conclusions, rather, I want my work be a case study on how to deploy independent logic and insight to a variety of topics and situations.

While I haven’t discussed the 2020 presidential campaign much here, I comment on it quite a bit over at Twitter, and people often ask why I discuss the circus at all. The reason isn’t because I expect a politician to come save us and make everything right again, but because the establishment response to populist-type candidates is so instructive.

Although Trump hasn’t done much of anything to address our nation’s core fundamental problems; such as a two-tier justice system, central bank power, financial feudalism, aggressive militarism/empire, rogue intelligence agencies, civil liberties abuses and tech giant censorship, his unexpected victory over chosen one Hillary Clinton nevertheless exposed many individuals and institutions for the frauds they are. Bernie Sanders’ run is doing the same thing. You don’t have to like the specific policies of Trump or Sanders to appreciate how any candidate with even a hint of grassroots populism puts the “elites” into panic mode.

It’s important to understand the ruling class doesn’t actually fear Trump or Sanders individually — any one person can be dealt with. What they really fear is you. They fear people flocking to unapproved candidates and then talking about things the establishment doesn’t want them talking about. This is the main reason the whole Russiagate fantasy was unrolled against Trump and pushed hysterically by mass media.

By ensuring “the resistance” to Trump revolved around some invented intelligence agency narrative, the power structure was able to prevent large numbers of people from talking about anything real or significant for four years straight. Although it didn’t remove Trump from office, it successfully reduced hitherto thoughtful people into emotionally broken mental midgets.

This is the reason the exact same tactic was just unrolled against Bernie Sanders, with Jeff Bezos’ Washington Posreporting the day before the Nevada caucuses that Russia is also supposedly helping Sanders. It’s ridiculous, but you have to understand the strategy here. If Sanders can’t be prevented from winning the nomination, the establishment needs a plan B, and that plan appears to be Russiagate all over again. These people aren’t very creative.

When it became clear Trump couldn’t be stopped he was smeared with being a tool of the Russians, and the same seeds are being planted around the Sanders campaign. It doesn’t matter how preposterous it is, the primary goal is to ensure nobody ever talks about anything important. Absent Russia hysteria, a Sanders vs. Trump matchup would quickly become a battle of who’s more populist, and issues that make so-called elites very uncomfortable would become widely discussed.  The ruling class doesn’t want the public talking about such things so they need to turn the election into a complete circus if Sanders can’t be blocked. Instead of talking about economic insecurity, healthcare, the cost of college and wars for empire, the goal is to make Sanders and Trump spend the entire campaign season arguing about who hates Russia more.

The important takeaway here is how completely terrified and decrepit the ruling class of this country really is. They have no argument or philosophy about anything important. As such, their only tactic is to overwhelm the public with nonsense and invented narratives in order to divide, befuddle and control the masses while keeping the imperial oligarchy running exactly as it has for decades. Once you see the game, it’s impossible to unsee it, but the good news is we all possess within ourselves the power they fear most. The power to think for ourselves and to reject ridiculous lies.

This is why we need to place relentless pressure on these people and never let up. When they feel pressure, they get scared. When they get scared, they become desperate. When they become desperate, they make mistakes. After enough mistakes, we win.

  1. Mario, if you wish to submit an article (you almost wrote one above), please do and thanks for your comment !!!

  2. Critical thinking is telling the many what they don’t want to hear. It’s the only liberty each of us has. The establishment is us. We either research or we act without thinking. The idea that the establishment does not want us to think is partially true. The other side of this coin is that the many humans in America rather have someone else do the thinking for them. Trump was chosen long ago by the establishment. He became a household name brand with the Hollywood mindset coming into the US households plenty. A good portion of these viewers have been conditioned long ago to believe what they see on their television sets. I see them mostly as the American sheeple. From this group of non-thinkers came the voters for both Trump and Clinton in 2016. Neither of these two Zionist controlled stooges would do anything positive for America. I called the election of 2016 the ” Zionist Wet Dream . ” in 2015. I as a critical thinking person decided in late 2015 knowing what we would be facing in the 2016 election, due to my diligent research, not to be a sheep and not vote in that rigged, fixed and corrupted 2016 election. I have yet to vote in any since 2016. I had been a sheep since my first voting in 1972 to 2014. Mr. Krieger has some of the concepts correct with his ideas about the establishment but that they chose Clinton over Donald is totally incorrect. Donald was the chosen one by the establishment all along. Mr. Krieger needs to do the research more diligently on the Rothschild-Rockefeller ” Hegelian Dialectic “. There he will find the answer to how the 2016 election really went down. The establishment’s ” divide and conquer ” reigned to perfection. Our nation now in 2020 is in a big mess and the establishment is running it perfectly with the old ” out of chaos order comes ” ideology. I will not predict the 2020 election simply because it’s another scheme with ruses galore. I will say it has all the potential for another ” Zionist Wet Dream “. Time will tell regardless of the critical thinking by the voters as the American advanced technology AI algorithm works daily on the minds of the American sheeple. They walk around with its hand held devices never doing their own diligent research. The 2020 America has become the poster child of the non-thinking society.

  3. No one could logically refute the general truths to which this article speaks. However, it isn’t just a psychological game of ‘Alice In Wonderland Programming’. An entire spectrum of technocratic weapons have and continue to be deployed in our very midst. Genocide of 3/4 (?) of humanity is their end game. They are becoming more desperate, viz. more people waking up to the shite and as we know, psychopaths can and will flip when cornered… Seems the only chance to actually win this war is to awaken all the secondary psychopaths (bureaucrats, police, military) “just doing their jobs” who actually deploy their masters madness. God speed with that as they are the ones under the deepest forms of mind control.
