Journalist Chris Hedges is one of the most reputable speakers of truth to power on the public stage and his succinct summary of the censorship and assault on truth in the media today is an important listen: American Commissars https://chrishedges.substack.com/p/listen-to-this-article-americancommissars?token=eyJ1c2VyX2lkIjoyNDU3Njk5MCwicG9zdF9pZCI6NTI3NTUyNDMsIl8iOiJJRDhFNCIsImlhdCI6MTY1MDgxNDkxOCwiZXhwIjoxNjUwODE4NTE4LCJpc3MiOiJwdWItNzc4ODUxIiwic3ViIjoicG9zdC1yZWFjdGlvbiJ9.NyBmjeTbXSsg9vKLrHrxnZF7qPIe-KrTrUllhnhwktE&s=r
“Social media platforms are aggressively censoring all who challenge the dominant narrative on Ukraine, the ruling Democratic Party, the wars in the Middle East and the corporate state.”
On the economic front, you likely did not hear that Israel, our number one ally in the Middle East has jumped ship: dropped the US dollar in favor of China’s renminbi. https://quoththeraven.substack.com/p/king-dollars-demise-israel-dumps?s=r
Most the finance reports simply state that “the exchange rate for the Dollar has decreased -1,85% against the Israeli new shekel in the last 30 days, falling from 3,28 to 3,22 shekels per Dollar. Today, you will get fewer shekels for an amount in Dollars than you would have just a month ago. 30 days ago.”
This loss of global economic control and power is driving the US Oligarchy into a frenzy of authoritarian “whack a mole” on information. It is up to us the American people, those who believe in Main Street, to stay grounded, to choose compassion for our people and communities, resist hate mongering and violent censorship and incarceration of truth tellers if we want to avoid the Corporate/fascist mistakes of Germany in the 20th Century.
There is a viable economic alternative to authoritarian centralized control of our nation if we the people continue to maintain focus and demand truth, even if only through a meme war. Ellen Brown, author of the book, Web of Debt, has been championing the solution since 2008: public banks. A recent writing here gives an updated view on the how to: https://ellenbrown.com/2022/02/13/rather-than-sink-main-street-by-raising-interest-rates-the-fed-could-save-it-heres-how/
Pay attention, the power is with the people, truth is being blocked and denied in order to contain people power. Continue to search out the censored truth tellers: they keep moving to platforms like Gettr.com and Substack.com. Celebrated authors like Naomi Wolf who wrote, The End of America: Letter of Warning to a Young Patriot in 2007 is still out there too, though censored, blocked from Twitter and more. Her most recent work exposes the dark underside of the “Trust the Science” fraud that promoted the Covid-19 epidemic. https://gettr.com/post/p16wejx5d85
Despite the best effort of Corporate Oligarch authorities to squash truth, the people have more tools to fight back and access accurate, or at least alternative perspectives on information, than ever before. Grounded critical thinking has never been more important. Accuracy takes time to discern, truth is obscured and historical perspective is essential. Our ability to maintain control over our communities and the rule of law that ensures our rights to live free and choose for ourselves is sitting at a crossroads.
Pay attention, share information and be vocal, even if only to share a meme. War is over is we want it. We can live free and independent lives if we are willing to insist on doing so.
