I can’t help but think that this new takedown of an icon, the now-admittedly-lying “objective” persona of “the most trusted voice in news” Brian Williams, if it is one, might turn into the crack that broke the cultural con, symbolized here, by Jon Rappoport, as a “reality egg.”
As he says, in this time in history, it’s not the shout, but the apparently reasonable, calm, even tone of “authority” that wheels in the sheeple and induces the trance. Whether that authority be “science” or the MSM — or, we might add, patriarchal religions, governments, corporations, all vague and mealy-mouthed, droning on and on — it’s all the same surface veneer that hides the ugly stuff we would rather not know about. Please, just let me go on pretending, we whine, out of laziness or numbness, whether outwardly or inwardly, while adjusting our hems and collars and two-step just so. Picking up the remote and settling in. Picking our noses surreptitiously, farting when no one is looking (or smelling), putting our “best face forward,” the polite ones we wear around, pretending not to be furious, or in despair, or remorseful, and deeply, deeply depressed by the deteriorating state of this beautiful Earth and the accelerating robotization of our own human interactions — how we humans have, in both ignorance, and apparently, for some of us, by design — managed to fuck our common world up to the point where near term extinction is a very real possibility.
