The Inevitable Fall Of The U.S. Empire.
The inevitable fall of the western world and it's peoples inability to assess simple logic and the realities of a final world war.
So, today I was browsing YouTube and ran across the Jimmy Dore show. The episode was a live stream where he was talking to Kurt about how congress was ready to go to war over the latest confrontation between two Russian fighter jets and a U.S. spy drone flying over the waters of the Black Sea. As they played clips of western officials beating the drums of war with their performances of selected outrage, I watched clips of Lindsey Graham calling for a war with Russia and I couldn't help but chuckle uncomfortably. Because unfortunatley he wasn't the only one ready to sacrifice millions of Americans over an unmanned spy plane. But this is where we are and I'm sure millions of westerners who believe whatever the main stream tells them will surely be ready to go to war with Russia.
So it has been a year since the war started, and I strongly can honestly say that the delusional rhetoric of the imbeciles who get to grace all of us with their public opinion on Ukraine, have gotten worse. Americans are still doing and believing what they are told to believe. The two party ideological divide is still alive and well, and no one has developed the ability to put logic in front of personal group think, that will bring us to a sermountable ending. So as I kept browsing through YouTube I also saw that the international court has called for the arrest of Vladimir Putin because he illegedly stole Ukrainain children. Now I'm not sayin that this is not true. But do to the record of the west getting everything wrong on purpose, at this point I doubt that the allegation is precise or even accurate. It's hard to tell if these claims are true do to the fact, as an American citizen I pretty much get lied too about 95% of the time by government and their corporate stenographers in the corporate news. And that is where many things in the west stand when it comes to it’s citizens. We have to understand that we get lied too so much and propagandized so heavily, that reality and common sense becomes a blurr, and it becomes a real challenge for westerners to decipher truth.
We appear to have a population that lacks global culture. For example, a majority of Americans have never left the United States, so they do not understand other cultures. And it's meant to be that way. For if we are distant from the world and other cultures. Then it makes it easier for Americans to distance themselves from bearing responsibility for the death of millions who we destroy with missile and drone strikes. Through tax payer money, Americans ussually pretend that they hold no responsibility for the terror that the Military Industrial Complex implements all over the world. And honestly, most Americans look away. For example: What do most people do when they see a commercial on TV about starving children? Answer: They change the channel. Then they go into their wallet or purse, grab their credit card or venmo, and send a few bucks to their charity of choice. This is done as an instant self gratification of selective comfort. They know the true problem, but lack the corouge or accountability to understand the actual internal cause of the problem. And they feel helpess in any potential effort to make substantial change, so they direct their attention away from those hard truths. The same counts for war and the consequences and death it brings to countries who are on the empires bad side. They continue to edge us closer to a confrontation with China and Russia all because westerners have long forgotten the true realities of war. This is a top indicator of a society that has lost its way. They don't have to witness the horror of war, so they change the channel and quickly dismiss it. They go and post support for war on their Instagram feed, and then move on with a false sense of righteousness.
The average American does not get to feel the bombs reining in on their home in Ukraine. The father who lost his daughter in a terrorist attack in Russia. A middle eastern family feeling the wrath of a drone strike as they celebrate their wedding. And having to live in a country where millions of people are starving all because their country has been sanctioned for not falling under the complete control of the IMF. Westerners do not have these concerns. But like that commercial of starving children, they'd rather block out the negative and move on to a simple distraction of convenience. So as the empire falls, and people begin to notice the realities of why the empire is cracking. We can see a unsurrmountable effort by those in power by way of the institutional media to create anger and division. Not at the truth of our demise and of a nation that lacks world culture. But by a false premise that westerners are made up of two fractions. Blue vs Red. Liberal vs Conservative. Maga vs Woke. Alpha male vs Beta Male, Dore vs TYT, Andrew Tate vs Jake Paul, Trans vs Fascist, Fox News vs Msnbc, Dem Socialists vs Left Activists.
Well, I can keep going, but as we can see, it is always one against the other. And it's done on purpose. It feels like a bad Star Wars movie where you have the rule of two. Diversity in our ideology is never allowed beyond a certain parameter, and it's for a good reason. Funny that we never question why we have parameters and never look to see who sets them and how they are structured for us. Nine times out of ten it comes out of the playbook of those three letter organizations, political think tanks, or political parties. Like clock work these standards are set through all of social media and everywhere else. And those who deviate from those parameters are met with vigerous and ferocious anger, most often by the average citizen themselves. I sometimes look back and I still can't believe how delusional many people in the west have become.
I feel trapped, like I'm having a bad nightmare. I'm a guest on the View and Whoopie Goldberg is giving me one of her brain dead takes. And the other one is getting ready to give me a colonoscopy. Now, a logical person would know that five women who never saw a day of war in their sad lives of conformity, would believe it would be a good idea to start world war 3 with Russia. They would be ostracized and laughed off stage in a society of logical thinkers. But this is America and using logic and being non hypocritical is not considered a position of value.
So hypocrisy seems to be a non issue with the west. It is very convenient to ignore truth while others outright embrace ignoring it. It’s the most odd thing to witness as someone who considers being rational and objective a valued trate. Because if it's truth that deviates from the cult, then those truths become lies and conspiracy theories. So as society becomes more delusional, we must remember why this is happening. Propaganda is the only way the empire can hold together at this point. And for some odd reason, I feel that the average U.S. citizen knows it. But they'd rather live the lie rather than face the truth. They see the steak. They know it's not real. They know that it tastes juicy and that codes are sending impulses to the brain, telling them that it tastes good. But in reality, they know that there is no steak.
That's the American and western way, it seems. We know our leaders are all lying. We know that they are all corrupt. But our culture now accepts it as an unchangeable, accepted, and undeniable reality. How many times has someone told you that all politicians are corrupt no matter the political ideology they hold? I've heard other people tell me this my whole life. But yet they still vote for politicans. They still go to rallies. They still write checks to their favorite campaigns like a sports bet. This is the way of the westerner. It's total comfortbility in a false illusion. Americans will push for escalation with Russia or China rather than push for de-escalation and diplomacy. They literally think that they will not be effected by a world War or that they would never bear the costs. Where we are going in this affirmation and acceptance of potential war, is unethical, and it is going to impact the west severely.
Honestly China and Russia do not have to do anything to defeat the west. All they have to do is wait and the west will collapse on it’s own. That would explain why China has been very patient and methodical. In a past news cast sometime ago, a Chinese official said. “We have been around thousands of years before the west, and we will be here thousands of years after.”
I remember some time back I had a Twitter fued with a twitch streamer who did a half hour rant about me while he sat quivering in a bunker in Ukraine. He said that I would never go to the DMV and share my thoughts about the Ukraine war because everyone would think I was crazy. So I thought about what he said. First I didn't understand why anyone purposely would go to the DMV to stroke up a conversation about politics to strangers. And I don't know about everyone else, but people at the DMV ussually aren't in the best of moods, and that's including myself. But other than this weird dudes weird fetish with the DMV. I really began to understand why he said what he said. You have to understand that having independent thought and being part of a cult does not mix. To be part of this cult, it is imperative that his values and opinions fit the cults narrative that has been created for his mind to give him a false sense of validation and self worth. This is the mindset of a follower and not a leader. A weak minded indivual. It’s the way of the common neo-liberal. We must understand that this person fears rejection and the consequences of going against the grain. He will purposely deny reality and defend his views with the sole purpose of fitting in and not being an outcast. Sometimes I think maybe his unrealistic thought process was do to the lack of his undoubtedly generational inexperience. Or was he willingly being deceitful? Honestly it didn't really matter. Siding with the empire is much more conveniently easier than fighting against it. And the toll of going against the official narrative is a deciding factor in his motivations to trash me for simply blocking him on twitter. Imagine being told that there were no Nazi militias in Ukraine, when we see with our own eyes that there are nazi militias in Ukraine.
Imagine being told that Roma women were not being beaten and tied to trees in Ukraine, when we see Roma women and families being tied to trees and beaten in Ukraine. Imagine telling us that there was never a coup in 2014, when there clearly was a coup in 2014. Well that doesn't matter to this guy, because if I went to the DMV I would have been laughed at if I randomly started talking to people about Ukraine. At this point I don't know whether to laugh at him or feel empathy for his level of delusional takes.
Another example: As some of you may know, several years ago I organized a union with a few of my coworkers. A majority of co workers signed union cards and were supportive of the union. When the company found out, they sent in their team of union busters to bust the union. 80 percent supported the union. When the propaganda campaign ended, only 10 percent of coworkers voted yes. Not only did 70 percent changed their minds. Some of them threatened to assault a few organizers right before the election. One changed his mind over a 15% company discount on his cell phone bill. Another coworker told me that a 401k was better than a pension. And another said he hated unions because he had a bad experience with his last union. Then later he told me that he had a pension from the same very union and that he was retiring soon. Honestly, I'm not blaming them for their ignorance and bad decision making. But from the get go, I underestimated the power of propaganda and the union busting lawfirm that implemented it. I thought everyone of my coworkers could see clearly what I saw. And I was undeniabley wrong. And in many cases that is what I still see today. The peoples inability to see truth and to understand how the propaganda machine works. And at this point it is something that is in my opinion, impossible to achieve now.
The population does not know what is real and what is a lie. So they create their own reality as a coping mechanism, knowing that they have no control over their lives and that the system has been and is inherently corrupt. They even tell us that the truth is a lie and label truth tellers as a dangers to democracy, not realising that there is no democracy. What is even worse is they'd rather be ruled over because being independently objective can come with a great cost. See Julian Assange. And I think this goes to the core problem of what I see with this twitch streamer and many of my ex coworkers. The funny part, is that this illogical form of group think seems to be carried out with extreme enthusiasm. The bliss of ignorance maybe? The reason why so many westerners are so pro war is that they do not have to fight in them. Well, not yet anyway. I'm not a young buck, but I can remember a time where many Americans thought war was wrong. That the objective was to keep our soldiers from dying and only active when we have a threat on our own soil. But those days are long gone.
Americans get clearly and jusfiably outraged at school shootings, but don't blink an eye when babies get bombed in the middle east. Why? Because they don't have to see the middle east. They do not have to live there. They don't have to see their neighbors starve from U.S. sanctions. But they do get to see and hear about the families of the Uvaldi shooter. They do get to see the horrific attacks on 911. They don’t realize what they see and hear are chosen for them. Hypocrisy and delusion are now the new American past time. So here we stand. I know I'm in the minority. I know that many of us in this minority are alone and are limited in our influence. We do know that we are kept quiet and silenced on social media. We know that we are shunned from the debate because we do not fit between the parameters that have been assigned to us. We know that when ever we try to make our voices heard, not only do we have enemies who silence us. But we also have them within our own communites.
So the empire is falling and it is inevitable. Every single facet of the empire is corrupted. There will be no white knight who will save us. There will only be us. You cannot join an organized crime syndicate with the intention of decriminalization of the organization. You cannot become part of that organization without being corrupted yourself. Unfortunately the propagandized citizenry of the western world still believes that the empire can be saved. That the illusion of progress and democracy can be preserved and restored.
The enemies of empire do not have to do a thing but wait as the empire falls under its own weight of corruption. The average westerner is unwilling to accept that the life cycle of U.S. empire will enfallably end. And in some small way, I think they know it will.
