We should be very skeptical regarding news fed to us by TV. As of the moment, there is no reason to believe any of the Connecticut story. It appears that its ground-work has been in place since around the time of 9/11, including the creation of a heroic teacher personna. The story that the father, like that of the alleged Aurora theater killer, is involved in LIBOR litigation may have been released as a red herring. I am not convinced that the murdered mother existed at all. The alleged father appears likely to be an agent-plant. There are a number of obvious actors involved.
The perpetrators are now totally brazen with this sort of thing. Judging from comments at skeptical online articles people may be waking up quickly, unlike their decade-long coma regarding 9/11. The gunning down of elementary school kids may turn out to be the perpetrators’ big mistake. Arrogance, or hubris, eventually results in fate destroying those who overstep its limit, as Greek tragedy teaches us. The present narrative might get blown apart. It is up to all of us not to fall for disinformation and to keep our heads in seeking and publicizing verifiable discrepancies in news surrounding this latest horrifying narrative.
What we call modernity has resulted from the exploding number of humans having been led by a relatively small number of aristocrats, who, in self-interest, became beholden to absolute rulers, monarchs, and czars. Since the French Revolution and a progressive decline in the political power of monarchs, masses have increasingly fallen under the control of parliaments, such as our own Congress. Elites have steered the masses, through myth and narrative, in directions that are financially profitable for themselves, war being a huge example. Advantages to others have not accrued altruistically.
Manipulation is always done through myth and narrative. In the past, narrative was supported by religion in appealing to human superstitions, fears, and fantasies. With modern communication technology we call this psy-op and disinformation methodology. What is going on today is simply a continuation of an ages old game. It is highly problematical that the masses can ever be led rationally. The best we can hope for is that a former aristocratic class gets a grip on the nature of the game and, as happened at the signing of Magna Carta, is able to wrest political control from absolute rulers.
Lord Acton was correct in observing that power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely. Today’s elites, who happen to be society’s bankers, are now overwhelmed by their own greed and in increasing fear of losing wealth and power. This has made them paranoid and they are becoming careless. It is up to each of us to expose the nature of their game and attempt to create a future for the human race on our small planet.
It is not necessarily depressing to realize that manipulation through myth and narrative affects us all. When push comes to shove, those with healthy imaginations, superior intellects, and constructive values must engage in this ourselves if we expect to turn the masses away from environmentally fatal and hedonistic destructive pursuits that are financially profitable for today’s cynical elites but that threaten man and mankind’s future.
