The Difference Between Old-Style Conspiracy Investigators and New-Fangled Conspiracy Nuts

Posted on

OLD-STYLE CONSPIRACY INVESTIGATORS:

You are never in any way a fanatic who has to find conspiracy everywhere. You only react when it comes up for real. When you suspect that something is not right about government, political, or scientific claims or activity, you quietly set about investigating it DEEPLY AND INDEPENDENTLY to find out as much as you can about what is really happening. You build up your case with logic and hard evidence, because you know that if you publish something, you are responsible for your readers state of mind and their education. You take as long as is necessary over it; weeks, months or even years — whatever it takes to be as responsible and authentic as possible. You make it as detailed as you can. You do NOT go public with it until you have amassed an undeniable cache of facts and, subordinately, extreme likelihoods in view of the prima facie implications. You emphasise that there is a difference between facts and the extreme likelihoods. You never initially make your claims in a meme or other soundbite expression. Instead, you use full articles with references and ensure that you do not come across as a crackpot because you do not want to bring Truth or Integrity into disrepute.

The Cult of Trump and the Demise of Veracity

of this piece will find it at the foot of the article]

INTRODUCTION: The Cult of Trump and its Strange Bedfellows

There is going to be a lot of counselling needed soon in the Western world. I am referring to the followers of Donald Trump, who are going to be hugely disillusioned when they discover that in four years not even the tiniest part of the swamp was ever cleaned, that all the paedophiles in the world have not been arrested, that Amerika has not been made ‘great again’ (and never really was, actually), that QAnon must surely be an intelligence services psyop to test the gullibility of conservatives/rightists and as a likely pilot for future mind-control projects, that the “deep-state cabal” has remained completely intact (not even been dented), that all the wonderful acts of justice which had been promised to happen never took place, that Joe Biden has been inaugurated without a coup d’etat occurring, and that Trump has not got another four years, as they claimed he definitely would. Really, it has all been a spellbinding four years of hypnotic powermongering and cult-gathering.

The Paradox of ‘Tribe’

Posted on

HERE’S A SCREAM OF CONSCIOUSNESS RAMBLE from when I awoke in the night… Where to find my tribe? I looked here. I looked there. I looked every where. Does it exist? Folks keep saying, “Find your tribe!” I kept thinking it will be in this schtick or that. But it wasn’t. So many clubs to feel secure in (so they think). But I don’t belong. Not to any tribe on earth. Let me expand on this…

“A Trace of Sky” (song video)

Posted on

LIVING-ROOM VIDEO #63: “A Trace of Sky”. This new song has a percussive arrangement and would benefit from a full band. But you’ll have to make do with lil ol’ me me and my unplugged acoustic. The song is a slightly surrealistic and metaphorical take on what it means to be a bunch of defences (with a touch of sociopathy thrown in). How important it is to have your face touched, leaving a trace of sky. And just who is that “she”? 😉 Here are the lyrics:

Searching for a reason
He’s trying to find the answer why
Brave hearts to believe in
Need to feel something real inside

A Posy of Epiphanies

i am nothing
i am no one —
just a walk-on part
in other people’s dreams
i am flotsam
i am jetsam —
just a late intruder
in a plethora of schemes
i never made

A Sonnet for All Soldier Boys (& Girls)

Posted on

Dear soldier boy, there’s nothing to defend.
Your masters have decided what has worth.
(Dear soldier girl, what irony to send
lives to their death. The womb’s for giving birth!).
