Henry Kissinger:

Kissinger referred pointedly to military men as “dumb, stupid animals to be used” as pawns for foreign policy.

Dylann Roof’s complete disconnect from reality is a product of the endless racist right wing propaganda that lies and distorts so much they no longer have any concept of the real world. People like this are one reason that motivates me to challenge propaganda, across the spectrum, and keep it real here.

Paul Craig Roberts asks:

Can morality be resurrected?

We need to pair this video technology with this audio technology, and you’ll start to get the bigger picture…

When Seeing and Hearing Isn’t Believing

 

And shit, combine that with the myriad OFFENSIVE capabilities of intelligence, NSA etc., and it is truly the end of reality for the little fish of the world.

This is one of my favorite sci-fi films, and it isn’t what one would expect.  The twisted altered reality isn’t explained until the very end of the film. This is David Cronenberg’s exploration of immersive video games and mental manipulation — assaulting reality for fun and profit.

eXistenZ is very underrated and isn’t seen much, but the film must have been an influence on Christopher Nolan and his Inception project.

The plot addresses issues of trusting one’s own eyes and the point where reality and the unreal become indistinguishable.  At this mental point morality no longer matters, as any actions taken can be written off as just a game.  It is the death of empathy.

This frontal assault against programming ourselves with immoral behaviors in video games stands apart from other works.  Here, it’s impossible to tell what’s real and what isn’t, whether any of it matters or whether everything matters in a life and death kind of way.  With Cronenberg’s penchant for disturbing the viewer, his images of body deformities and impossible biology, the world of eXistenZ reinforces the gravity of the larger topic.  If we are disturbed by little images of body horror, what of having our entire mind rewired for us from outside?

Yesterday we showed car hacking.  Today it’s brain hacking:

Science Daily:

Neuroscientists Plant False Memories in Mice: Location Where Brain Stores Memory Traces, Both False and Authentic, Pinpointed

Back in the 1950s US intelligence was obsessed with mind control.  The MKULTRA experiments were quite real, and the US believed that Communist bloc countries were ahead of them in the brainwashing department.  There is no reason whatsoever to believe that these desires by government have changed.  What’s more, with the rise of private mercenary entities funded by government tax money accountability is eliminated, oversight non-existent, and the potential for widespread abuse and catastrophe glaringly obvious.

BUT IT’S SO MUCH WORSE!

The war on truth and truth-tellers is equally as troubling, as the government now equates telling the public what actually goes on with “treason” or “terrorism” or probably baby cannibalism if they can float that one on corporate media.  The so-called “news” in this nation is so bogus, so controlled, manipulated and censored that it is a clear tool for social manipulation.  When issues of power and policy appear on the “news,” these are approved, Pravda-level propaganda displays.  Real issues can only be discussed in government/corporate approved presentations, with demonization of designated enemies and praise for officially-sanctioned activities, even if those activities are clear Crimes Against Humanity, as with the selling of the aggressive war against Iraq.

Such a society cannot last.  Something has got to give.  Pillage by elite predators, those parasitic 1% ghouls, has reached critical mass.  The manufactured debt is now able to sink the entire economy and the livelihoods of most people along with it.  War, chaos and destruction would inevitably follow.

Gerd Wiesler (Ulrich Mühe) bei seiner Arbeit.The Lives of Others (2006)

Most of our data is stored on computers now, which are also easily hacked, and gleefully so by government.  Your PC is pretty much a sitting duck for intelligence and military and corporate or other  criminals.  NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden revealed:

“We’ve got PRISM, which is a demonstration of how the US government co-opts US corporate power to its own ends.  Companies like Google, Facebook, Apple, Microsoft, they all get together with the NSA and provide the NSA direct access to the back ends of all of the systems you use to communicate, to store data, to put things in the cloud, and even just to send birthday wishes and keep the record of your life.  And they give NSA direct access that they don’t need to oversee so they can’t be held liable for it.”

That means things can go out, and things can similarly go in.  So what’s real?  What’s put there by us, and what’s put there without our knowledge or consent?

When everything is malleable, including brains, the news of the world, and all data storage — it is quite simply the end of reality.

Speaking of car hacking and the war on truth tellers, the preponderance of evidence suggests that journalist Michael Hastings was killed deliberately because of what he was investigating.  He had contacted Wikileaks early in the day, and he sent out very nervous alerts to his circles that he was being tailed by federal agents.  Hastings was investigating sensitive government programs, and he already made enemies inside the Pentagon with his exposure of Stanley McChrystal.

The manner of Hastings’ death is suspicious beyond belief, with the engine from a Mercedes mysteriously flying more than 100ft. from the vehicle.  His body was then cremated without permission of his family, and therefore his tissue samples cannot be tested to refute innuendo that he may have drunk alcohol that day and decided to speed recklessly for no reason whatsoever.  This is the final blow against reality, as we cannot prove conclusively that Michael Hastings was murdered by covert operatives, and of course we cannot prove that he wasn’t, either.

That is how reality is murdered, forever.
