Monday night there will be a debate on national television between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump.
I will not be tuning in.
I have not watched television in years. I own a television but it is not plugged into the Matrix.
By the Matrix I mean the establishment has created a simulated reality along the line of Jean Baudrillard’s Simulacra and Simulation.
According to the Matrix on the web, specifically The New York Times, the establishment’s dog and pony show on Monday night will be one of the most widely watched presidential debates since Carter vs. Reagan in 1980.
According to CBS News, the debate will draw in more than 80 million spectators and “could even come close to the 115 million Americans who saw the 2015 Super Bowl, the most-watched sporting event in U.S. history.”
The debate will be a lot like the Brangelina spectacle. We are spectators, not participants.
Most Americans will tune in for the entertainment value. Political nuances and consequences are largely irrelevant, only dimly understood.
“The television has become an opiate for the masses and a conduit from where conglomerates can dictate how society thinks, acts and evolves. Our habits and ethics are manipulated, our ideas and beliefs distorted,” writes Manuel Valenzuela.
“The system instills a sense of paralysis, isolation and uniformity among the masses. We are assimilated to conform to society, to incorporate how the oligarchy wants us to live. The derailment of democracy as we know it is the end result of the reality we are presently experiencing.”
“Are we really free? Or have we been conditioned to believe we are? Corporations and mainstream media have us glued to our TV screens, searching for answers, searching for promises that can never be kept. Living as the puppets we are, we’ve become distracted from the truth, our attention diverted to what we want to hear as opposed to what we need to hear,” writes Alexa Erickson.
The reality we are presented arrives through a distorted facet. Its reflection portrays Clinton as an advocate for women, for so-called progressivism, and Trump as the ideal candidate for the Angry White Man, a crusader poised against the establishment.
It’s an illusion.
No matter who is elected in November, very little will change. Certainly, there will be cosmetic modifications, especially with a Trump victory, but despite this the globalist juggernaut will continue along its course.
The juggernaut does not bear an image of a Hindu god. It’s murtis are corporate icons, the seals and scepters of the global elite.
Donald Trump is a member of the global elite, although somewhat of an outlier. Hillary Clinton is a consummate insider, she relies on time-tested dupery utilized by the political class.
Clinton, as a known quantity, is preferred by the doyens of the elite, but they will work with Trump and he will accommodate, albeit in his eccentric fashion.
Do not turn on your television Monday night. Do something else. Read a book, go for a walk, spend time with your family, seek out truth. Refuse to participate in the Brangelina spectacle of national politics.
“If we want real change, we have to look within, we have to look to ourselves. We can’t keep putting our faith and tasking our ‘leaders’ with the task of changing this world. The first step is awareness, and it’s happening faster and faster. More people are starting to become aware of what’s really happening on our planet. The next step is action, and we are just starting as a collective to take various action steps. The future really is brighter than ever, it’s always darkest before the dawn,” writes Erickson.
