I'm struggling to understand things myself 5to10?
I worry that there is such a thing as 'The Elite' and that they do only have their interests at heart. If so then they know full well what is coming but feel secure that they can avoid harm?
My concern is part of their 'belief' relies upon us ripping ourselves apart and leaving them alone.
I have seen the way they have divided the developed world with fear of 'other' and set person against person. I have seen the way Media was utilised in providing these conditions.
Why would they suddenly decide to try and undo all they have achieved over the past 30 years???
As with a lot of things I believe the only way for us to bring about meaningful change is from the 'bottom up'. We, the people, have the expertise and access to our own 'media' so it is up to us to force an understanding of the peril we face to a distracted populace? The more people aware the bigger the chance of finding folk whose ideas/outlook are what we are needing but we need to organise.
I have been forgetting that many people aware of impending climate change disaster are not necessarily proponents that much of what we know is a lie.. But I am. If it isn't obvious by the almost complete and total lack of mention of climate change by either party in the recent election, it should be.
There is absolutely no scenario wherein elites of this world are not aware of the truth. Many of their businesses have no doubt been affected by climate change. Also, while we as the public are exposed to untold amounts of information, only some of which may be true, and we have to discern that for ourselves... They get the best think tanks and intelligence delivered directly which they can immediately trust as being factual.
They have known about this for decades, it's time anyone on the fence here accepted it. We are a society of debt slaves living in a state of partial fantasy which is regulated and maintained by the very upper sect, by way of using and ultimately controlling LANGUAGE (the written and spoken word, i.e. newsmedia) as a means of mass mind control. That is, the most powerful and consistent influence in our opinions and thus worldviews. At its most fundamental this is what is happening, this is what has been happening for decades or more. A cursory glance into the work and influence of Edward Bernays in the early 20th century will cement this for you.
My current belief is that all are aware we are doomed, very soon. Trump is not only casting doubt on news, but INFORMATION AS A WHOLE. So, pretty much all of us will inherently have less of an instinct to trust any information we read online as a result of this recent war on "fake news". There is a campaign to leave us utterly confused as to what is real, and what is not.
As more information on the abrupt changes we are facing comes out, it will be in a world where it is harder and harder for us to tell that it is real, because there has been a campaign of forced recognition that unfortunately, at the end of the day, we cannot know what is true or not without witnessing/doing/studying it firsthand.
I know this is all fringe, but what else makes sense? Sure, I get it, all humans are subject to confirmation bias etc etc., but elites have access to information we do not. Especially in politics. There is no reason for them to doubt their intelligence.
So why is the question of the validity of available information being forced upon us? Trump is an actor. This is a facade to distract us from our imminent collapse, such that it doesn't happen due to panic earlier than a natural collapse. The faster we know it for certain, the faster collapse follows. Thus, confusion and ultimately widespread ignorance/disbelief/hope is required to maintain things as they are as long as possible (until we collapse naturally)
This is a very real example of "What we believe manifests in the external world". Collectively, if we all recognized what was going on (as most here do, intimately) and believe we are doomed quite soon, it will happen almost immediately out of panic, self-fulfilling prophecy/belief. This is more of an existential danger in relation to collapse: What the majority believe is extremely important right now. Depending on how you look at it (Is it better to maintain normalcy as long as possible, or is it better to collapse now and spare the planet further damage?) the elites are being merciful by keeping us uninformed, should collapse be a near-term certainty, as it maximizes our time here (the longer we are ignorant, the less chance of panic collapse). If collapse is NOT a certainty, they are not being merciful but pure evil.
