From avoidable destructive wars whose victims are innocent citizens, mostly women and children, to psychopathic predictions of unknown disasters. From the erosion of true journalism to shameless propaganda and censorship of truth.
Humanity is now pitched against itself over a difference of views, ethnicity or skin colour – matters which inherently beautify the canvas of human life, but have all of a sudden become issues of contention.
This is all intentionally used to subdue and distract the populace from uniting to deliberate on real issues, and asking the right questions to those they have entrusted with the power to serve them. A diversion from holding to account those who have failed on promises, betrayed and sacrificed the wellbeing of their constituents for personal gratification.
The world over has gone crazy, but nevertheless, it seems the majority are still oblivious to the fact. It feels as if there are still those who may have noticed that the world only is not what it used to be, but even headed into the road to self-destruction. This has been symbolic during the events of the past few years. It feels and seems as if everything has been inverted. Lies are the truth, and every truth, especially if it is against the narrative, is a lie. In the past, people would die for freedom, but now people even give up freedom not to die. In the time of our brave forebearers, most of these would have been categorised as cowardice, but today it’s glorified as exemplary.
Those who have been closely observing history as well as its compounding efforts to submerge the basic premise of freedom, would see this as no surprise at all. They must have seen the progression of the most brutal yet subliminal psychological warfare which has been ongoing, and finally culminating into worldwide amnesia of the populace. They have observed how the battlefield has expanded from physical to a mental one. They are realising that the absence of gunshots and bombs does not equal the absence of war, but the change of the modus operandi.
For humanity’s wellbeing has always been an alibi of tyrants, and the road to hell has always been paved with good intentions.
It no longer requires more than a naked eye or a magnifying glass to see what is going on. The dark malevolent forces, whether due to the absence of possible resistance or out of mere desperation, have not been more open about their evil plans.
They are no different from the likes of Josef Stalin or Mussolini, who promised the unsuspecting masses heaven on earth, only to be served with famine, suffering and death. If the world eventually blindly plays into this web, the following years will make the past human atrocities look like child’s play. This may, however, not make sense to most. Thanks to the cunning and deceptive ways of Big Tach and “fact-checkers” for coining terminologies to mislead more sheep to the slaughterhouse.
However, all hope is not lost. There is still a great window of opportunit, to reverse and demolish the forces of destruction and their plans. That is why assertions of Javier Milei, Kevin Roberts, Elon Musk et al are a breath of fresh air. For it is their likes and ideas that may finally not only awaken humankind from this looming dark path in human history, but even more, to save humanity from its grandiose delusion of not only unelected but unwanted rulers whose ideas are not only out of touch with humanity or delusional, but even more, satanic.
