What makes you do the same things every day? What makes you behave with other people the same way that you do – even with someone new? What makes you accept things happening in the world that you know are wrong and are probably hurting somebody? What makes you believe that changing the world doesn’t have anything to do with you?
Even now, you will at some level have a twinge or even a thought that suggests these few words have hit a nerve, even if your inner voice is shouting something like ‘what a load of crap’!
Nobody wants to hear or read anything that speaks a deeper truth. Especially when we have convinced ourselves that the truths that we have been conditioned to accept by others are in fact ours, and that each and every one of us who is ‘normal’, does exactly the same.
That ‘normal’ is of course what we might otherwise call ‘the narrative.’ The narrative is all about what someone else wants us to think, how someone else wants us to behave, and most importantly, what someone else wants us to do.
The problem with all of this is that we are so convinced that we have to follow, submit to and in many cases promote that narrative, that we have completely lost touch with who we really are.
Never mind the talk of new world orders and WEF agendas. We are already behaving subserviently to the will, whims and choices of others, each and every time that we blindly accept that anything we do, say or think must be or correlate with what the narrative and the system around us tells us it should be, look or sound like.
Trust in the media will only be achieved when there are no agendas at work.
Once again, the best way to achieve this will be to keep channels, platforms or mediums as local as it is possible for them to be.
That way, the interests and motivates of the journalists and managers will be to prioritise the needs and benefits to the community and people within that community they are working for. Not some commercial power that sits above.
In the Terence Trent D’arby (Sananda Maitreya) song ‘If you all get to Heaven’, sits the immortal line ‘Old men’s cigars puff up the wars to protect their fuck ups again’.
Whilst one of the alternative truths growing considerable traction in recent years has been that the United States has in effect created wars around the globe, simply so that the corporate interests that fund the politicians can keep profiting, the reality is that war has been used as a very costly distraction and as a way of taking attention away from the public, from what is really going on around us all at home.
As I write this in early 2022, Russia has just invaded Ukraine. It is already clear that Western Governments are going to use the crisis as a way to cover up the damage that they are responsible for. Prolonged mismanagement that has led to all the problems that we are facing now.
When people at the top have gained so much through a system that exists on the basis that it exploits the greater part of the population without them realising that they are being used, it is in the interests of those people at the top to ensure that the truth never comes out a) so that they don’t get blamed when it fails and b) so that no one will attempt to stop them doing all that they can to return the whole system to how it previously worked – even when they are too stupid to realise that it is now impossible to do.
Whilst there are many problems that are being caused by the impact and reach of social media, the availability of information and the evolution of how it is affecting life is a process that politicians are unable to control.
The example of Vladimir Putin’s attempts to tell the West that the bombing of Ukraine was fake news being the case in point.
No matter how hard any controlling politician tries, they will not prevent the dissemination of information within audiences that they wish to control.
Ironically, whilst fake news – or what in mainstream media terms is the publishing of opinion that we are then told is news – is causing governments around the world all sorts of problems, the end destination of what we are witnessing will be a new reality for truth and openness. One where leaders will only be able to function by telling is the truth, as the sheer weight of numbers of information sources will make it impossible for them to do otherwise.
Up until the summer of 2016, the tried and tested methods of creating and controlling us with an establishment narrative had always worked.
Those methods were expected to work with the European Referendum Vote too.
Lies and stories were concocted and mixed up with a few threats and a little fear. It was all focused on maintaining the easy way of living and the nice experiences that normal people would otherwise lose if they didn’t conform to what the establishment wanted to achieve from the Vote.
Yet the script that had been written for even greater integration with the European Union didn’t work.
The majority of the British People found instead that they identified with a different way of interpreting the future and voted democratically for the UK to leave the European Union.
The result of the Referendum set in motion what was to become a three-year battle between the democratic will of the people and the unwritten agenda of an establishment and a perceived loss that it still refuses to understand.
Brexit was born.
‘Levelling Up’ is a clever term – and it’s meant to be so.
For most of us, levelling up sounds very much like we are going to see everything we experience being pushed upwards. It suggests that the point of balance in our lives is somewhere higher than where our current experience actually is.
But what does ‘levelling up’ really mean?
