Ghislaine Maxwell, And Other Notes From The Edge Of The Narrative Matrix

Public Policy

Like so many other things, all this Ghislaine Maxwell buzz would be a lot more interesting without all the dumbass partisan angles people are putting on it. People fixate on the Trump angle or the Clintons angle when it’s clear they’ve all been manipulated by forces that are far more powerful than they are.

The real story is still the fact that opaque and unaccountable intelligence agencies use child sex slavery to blackmail powerful world leaders and manipulate our society. It’s weird that people focus anywhere else.

Anyway it’s not like this is going to “bring down” anyone with real power. Even if Ghislaine survives, don’t get your hopes up that her arrest will affect elite power structures in any meaningful way. The FBI is the swamp. The DOJ is the swamp. The swamp will never drain the swamp.

Maxwell, like Epstein, was never the lead player in the sexual blackmail op. There is at this time no reason to believe anyone’s coming for the intelligence operatives or their oligarchic allies who were actually running the thing.

In a society that is dominated by violent extremists, the “moderate” mainstream ideology is actually extremism and the sane path toward stability looks radical. When war, oppression, exploitation and ecocide are the status quo, those who just want health and harmony are painted as extremists.

While mainstream “centrists” will acknowledge that our current way of doing things is unsustainable, they resist making meaningful change. This is because of a cognitive glitch humans have called status quo bias, which can cause us to fallaciously equate change with danger.

Remember when you were a kid and you’d get stuck up a tree, but you couldn’t bring yourself to climb down because clinging to the swaying branches felt safe compared to the risk of descending? You’d be clinging to the high branches and your mother would call up “Well you can’t stay there!” And you knew she was right but the prospect of climbing down was terrifying.

That’s a very concrete example of status quo bias. Change is needed, but it’s so scary. That’s where we’re at right now. That’s the only thing keeping so-called “centrism” going.

These “centrists” maintain their ideology because we live in increasingly scary times, which means they’re stuck up a strange tree where they know things need to change but they can’t bring themselves to actually push for it because “What if I lose what little I still have?”

~

War is the worst thing in the world. By far. If the rank-and-file public could see past the veil of propaganda and distortion and objectively see war for the horrific thing that it is, ending it would immediately become everyone’s foremost priority. Hence all the war propaganda.

~

The continued Afghanistan occupation is like if the cops stormed a house, shot a bunch of people, realized they got the wrong house and would never find the guy they’re looking for by staying there, stayed anyway, moved in, and then years later said they can’t move out because they heard a rumor that the neighbors are trying to make them leave.

~

The fact that mainstream news outlets consistently refuse to account for something as basic and indisputable as intelligence agencies being known liars should by itself fully discredit the entire institution of mass news reporting.

~

The Julian Assange story is being written right now whether you like it or not. In ten years when the movie comes out with Colin Hanks playing Nils Melzer as the truth-seeking protagonist who would not give up, which side of the story will you be able to say you were on?

~

People who believe China is responsible for America’s coronavirus problems are even dumber than people who believe Russia is responsible for Trump’s presidency.

~

Stop calling homegrown US illnesses “Trump’s America”. You’re just seeing America. As it is. As it has always been. Trump is the fruit of America. Trump arose from America. The nation isn’t Trump’s America, the nation’s president is America’s Trump.

~

People who hide behind irony are just a more boring version of people who hide behind humor.

~

Supporting the censorship of online speech is to support the authority of monopolistic tech oligarchs to exert more and more control over human communication. Regardless of your attitude toward whoever happens to be getting deplatformed today, supporting this is suicidal.

~

I spent most of this month talking about US police brutality, which made me a deep state Soros shill. The last few days I’ve been criticizing the latest Russiavape psyop so now they say I’m a Trump shill. Whenever the West Bank annexation happens I’ll be a Jew-hating Nazi. It’s been a wild ride.

~

People who say privilege isn’t real and they earned everything they’ve got are really just telling you they’ve never done any honest inner work. With a little humble introspection you’d quickly see how little you had to do with the preconditions which led to your circumstances.

~
The real revolution is an expansion of consciousness in all directions. Consciousness of oppression and exploitation, of corruption and imperialism, of propaganda and manipulation, of unjust social and economic dynamics, of our own egoic structures and unconscious mental habits. People can’t change things they’re unaware of. Once they’re fully aware of them, change is inevitable.

~

Follow the white rabbit down the hole and you’ll learn that our world is ruled by sociopaths using violence, plutocracy and propaganda. Follow it even further and you’ll learn that we are ultimately ruled by no one and the self is an illusion and the world is not as it seems.

~

You thought you were storming the gates of Heaven

to become a Fully Realized Buddha™,

but that turned out to be a character in a video game

being played on a beautiful summer day

by a child with popsicle-stained lips

who simply set down the controller,

got up,

and went outside.

    Biden Embraces ‘Green New Deal’ In Newly Released “Biden-Sanders” Policy Platform
    Profile picture for user Tyler Durden
    by Tyler Durden
    Wed, 07/08/2020 – 15:48
    While Joe Biden was hanging out in the basement, his team was hard at work liaising with the remnants of the Bernie Sanders campaign people to craft a policy agenda that, they hope, will motivate the young people who came out in droves for Bernie to come out and vote for Biden.

    And unsurprisingly, Biden’s plan is a hodge-podge of mostly incompatible ideas obviously intended to pander to the white working class swing voters in the Midwest, and the young AOC-worshipping DSA members and crypto-marxists who powered Sanders to his second straight second-place finish in a Democratic presidential primary.

    According to information released by the campaign, the outline of Biden’s plan covers four areas: A push to ‘buy American’ and incentivizing American jobs, as well as embracing ‘clean energy’ (mostly via extreme policy proposals outlined in the Green New Deal), while also working to boost the “caring” economy – whatever that means. The Biden campaign said it would commit to bolstering child care and elder care, as well as racial equity.

    Here’s one quote from the policy paper released by the campaign:

    Ensure the U.S. achieves a 100% clean energy economy and reaches net-zero emissions no later than 2050. On day one, Biden will sign a series of new executive orders with unprecedented reach that go well beyond the Obama-Biden Administration platform and put us on the right track. And, he will demand that Congress enacts legislation in the first year of his presidency that: 1) establishes an enforcement mechanism that includes milestone targets no later than the end of his first term in 2025, 2) makes a historic investment in clean energy and climate research and innovation, 3) incentivizes the rapid deployment of clean energy innovations across the economy, especially in communities most impacted by climate change.

    He followed this up with a video promising to take “drastic action” to confront climate change.

    Biden will follow this all up with a speech on Thursday’ detailing his agenda in the run up to the Aug. 17 Democratic convention.

    “Biden wants to get to the same place that many to his left want to get to but he firmly believes that it will take an incremental path to get there and that you can’t leapfrog the political reality that he has come to know in many decades in politics,” said Jared Bernstein, who is advising the campaign after serving as Biden’s chief economic adviser in the vice president’s office.

    Some in the media described the proposals as an attempt to address areas discussed by the right and the left.

    But we see it as what it truly is: A clumsy attempt to pander to swing voters. For those who want to learn more, they can check out the full policy sheet below:

    1. Ensure the U.S. achieves a 100% clean energy economy and reaches net-zero emissions no later than 2050. On day one, Biden will sign a series of new executive orders with unprecedented reach that go well beyond the Obama-Biden Administration platform and put us on the right track. And, he will demand that Congress enacts legislation in the first year of his presidency that: 1) establishes an enforcement mechanism that includes milestone targets no later than the end of his first term in 2025, 2) makes a historic investment in clean energy and climate research and innovation, 3) incentivizes the rapid deployment of clean energy innovations across the economy, especially in communities most impacted by climate change.

    2. Build a stronger, more resilient nation. On day one, Biden will make smart infrastructure investments to rebuild the nation and to ensure that our buildings, water, transportation, and energy infrastructure can withstand the impacts of climate change. Every dollar spent toward rebuilding our roads, bridges, buildings, the electric grid, and our water infrastructure will be used to prevent, reduce, and withstand a changing climate. As President, Biden will use the convening power of government to boost climate resilience efforts by developing regional climate resilience plans, in partnership with local universities and national labs, for local access to the most relevant science, data, information, tools, and training.

    3. Rally the rest of the world to meet the threat of climate change. Climate change is a global challenge that requires decisive action from every country around the world. Joe Biden knows how to stand with America’s allies, stand up to adversaries, and level with any world leader about what must be done. He will not only recommit the United States to the Paris Agreement on climate change – he will go much further than that. He will lead an effort to get every major country to ramp up the ambition of their domestic climate targets. He will make sure those commitments are transparent and enforceable, and stop countries from cheating by using America’s economic leverage and power of example. He will fully integrate climate change into our foreign policy and national security strategies, as well as our approach to trade.

    4. Stand up to the abuse of power by polluters who disproportionately harm communities of color and low-income communities. Vulnerable communities are disproportionately impacted by the climate emergency and pollution. The Biden Administration will take action against fossil fuel companies and other polluters who put profit over people and knowingly harm our environment and poison our communities’ air, land, and water, or conceal information regarding potential environmental and health risks. The Biden plan will ensure that communities across the country from Flint, Michigan to Harlan, Kentucky to the New Hampshire Seacoast have access to clean, safe drinking water. And he’ll make sure the development of solutions is an inclusive, community-driven process.

    5. Fulfill our obligation to workers and communities who powered our industrial revolution and subsequent decades of economic growth. This is support they’ve earned for fueling our country’s industrial revolution and decades of economic growth. We’re not going to leave any workers or communities behind.

    * * *

    Oh, and Biden for America has committed to not accepting contributions from oil, gas and coal industry, and their executives.
