We Are In The Trenches Of An Information War — Know How to Arm Yourself

We are at war… No, not just the conventional war plastered across social media and the nightly television news. Not just the wars raging that receive zero coverage either. It is a war taking place not thousands of miles away in deserts, caves, and towns half way around the world. But right here at home. It is a war not fought with bombs and bullets, but instead using words as its weapons.

And every single one of us is a participant and a victim. Whether we like it or not. Whether we know it or not.

We are in the trenches of an information war. One being waged by propagandists on all sides to manipulate the thoughts, emotions, perceptions, and behavior of the masses.

Every second of every day people all over the world are exposed to its influence. From their own governments, and foreign ones. How can we even know what’s true anymore?

The sad reality is, we can’t, not at least without putting in a strenuous amount of effort to circumvent the deluge of propaganda we’re currently drowning in. It’s not as simple anymore, for anyone anywhere, as just turning on a broadcast or picking up the local paper.

Lest they be saturated with state sponsored talking points, cleverly disguised as genuine reporting, intent not to inform and educate, but hypnotize and manipulate.

Those who have been paying attention the last two years certainly recognize the inundation of disinformation that has taken place in the “Great Reset” era. Diatribes pontificated as settled facts, not to be questioned. Those who dissent from the status quo, regardless of legitimacy, turned into pariahs.

Only to have the “settled science” implode in upon itself, and its dissenters vindicated time and again.

We’ve also periodically witnessed this same occurrence respective to the US war machine. Whether it be ignorance, obfuscation, or deliberate falsification, all of America’s military incursions in recent decades have seen the same fate — It’s erroneous proponents discredited, it’s dissenters vindicated, all in the hindsight of a bloody catastrophe that could have been entirely avoided if not for the hawkish attitudes of Washington.

Case and point: Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, Lybia, etc…

And we’re witnessing the same fervent behaviors now. Virtue signaling Americans, illiterate of basic fundamental facts driving the conflict in Ukraine, who are all too eager to jump on the pro-war bandwagon in their latest fit of NPC-ism because its the hip new narrative that daddy government and the TV told them to care about.

The dangerousness of this malinformation is that this time around the manufactured ignorance of the public has convinced a sizable portion to unknowingly support the nuclear annihilation of our entire species.
