The strong do what they will. The weak do what they must. – Thucydides
Ukraine is an engineered distraction. The one-sided nature and macro-economic-lockstep-talking-point propaganda makes this clear.
This does not mean that there is not a real bombing of Kharkiv. It does not mean that innocent civilian populations are not having their livelihoods decimated. It does not mean that old men and young women are not preparing to throw molotov cocktails at heavy infantry in the beginnings of a long term battle of attrition.
But it does mean that the bullets are only the tip, the hard focal point toward which everything is directed. But the real war is the one convincing you that events in Ukraine matter while the 55,000 pages of data reluctantly released by Pfizer this week can quietly pass by.
We live is the age of psy-ops, an everwar of information. On every side is intense propaganda, a weapon discharged in order to increase fog, sow confusion, and submit your spirit to pliability. The plan is to make the noise so loud that you will follow any directive you can audibly understand. The objective is to make you question your ability to make decisions for yourself. The goal is to make you doubt your sanity so that you will just do what you are told.
I’ll say it again: don’t.
Till angel cry and trumpet sound,
The Mad Christian
