It’s Good When Idols Get Knocked Off Pedestals
Jeffrey Epstein, Woody Allen, and Noam Chomsky went out to dinner one night.
There’s no punchline, that’s just something that happened.
Of course, nothing that comes out about Epstein himself will ever be as significant as the first fact that powerful intelligence agencies use kids as sex slaves to manipulate our society with blackmail.
Anti-China propaganda needs to be opposed ferociously. US military encirclement of China is rapidly increasing and the floodgates are being opened to pour weapons into Taiwan as quickly as possible, and it’s getting almost no resistance anywhere. People barely know it’s happening.
The propaganda campaign against China needs to be opposed right now because it’s a threat right now, and also because otherwise when the time comes to actually send out the war ships the public will just consent to it, since the war propaganda went unchallenged that whole time. After a certain point a propaganda narrative can gain enough momentum that there’s simply no resisting it. We can’t just ignore this.
Aaand there he is. Bolton shows up literally every single time there’s a new opportunity to push for war. We don’t rage hard enough about the fact that there are people whose actual job is to try and get as many human beings violently killed as possible at every opportunity. https://t.co/zNuuxfOAKP

The US alliance is indisputably encircling Russia and China in ways it would never permit itself to be encircled. The only way to defend this discrepancy is to say “Well it’s okay when we do it because they are Bad Guys while we are Good Guys,” which is an infant’s understanding.
Believing that “democracies” should be allowed to do things that “autocracies” shouldn’t be is just subscribing to an adult-sounding iteration of the “Good Guys vs Bad Guys” plotline of every children’s cartoon. It can’t withstand an instant of critical thought.
Even if you do subscribe to an infantile “Good Guys vs Bad Guys” worldview, all facts in evidence say the US should be considered the latter. Russia and China haven’t spent the 21st century killing people by the millions in wars of aggression, for example. Russia and China haven’t been strangling entire nations around the world with economic warfare for the crime of disobedience. Russia and China haven’t been circling the planet with hundreds of military bases in order to rule the world. Russia and China haven’t been plotting to destroy any nation which disobeys them. Only the US is doing these things.
A great question to ask someone is “What conspiracy theory do you think might be true?” If they struggle to come up with even one, then that means they don’t question
