Bubbles are bursting everywhere for the Truman’s of this world today, previously coddled in whatever version of reality TV they resided – waking up to the scary truth we are trapped in a forgotten episode of the Twilight Zone (but never forgotten by Orwell) – the one where psychopath fascists take control of the world and kill us all. That’s what happens when you’re a nave idiot like Truman, getting all your information from a bankrupt society attempting to preserve itself through lies, script, and authority. This characterization of ‘life’ for increasing numbers of the disenfranchised middle class is much like Truman’s awakening as the lies were exposed, again, much like what you should be seeing in your circumstance today as the psychopaths attempt to take complete control of our lives.
I say ‘attempt to take control of our lives’ when the deed has already been done, because they have accomplished this is spades. What’s happening now is the undoing – with no more colonies to conquer and exploit they turn on their own – you – until that party gets too violent as well. That’s the authoritarian part of the story, the part where they show you how crazy they are and why you should be afraid. That’s why the cops keep shooting people and they have been getting away with it up until now. But they can’t get away with their bulling ways on the other ‘big boys’ in the game – China and Russia. Their astute leaders are too smart for that. They have been on to the vulgarities associated with American Empire since the ‘financial crisis’, echoes of which are becoming visible again with the resurgent credit binge post 2008.
As you should know, the status quo has been on a ‘mission from hell’ since then to turn the world into their own version of the Truman Show, so they can continue on in the dream world in which they reside. But times are getting tough even for these types again, never mind honest and civilized people, so they are becoming increasingly desperate. Because not only is the real economy in trouble, the subsidized economy (think ZIRP. NIRP, etc.) is visibly feeling the pain now despite all the money printing, reminiscent of the 2008 financial crisis. But so far the status quo has been able to stay ahead of the curve, stepping up the interventions, leaving any vestiges of reality in the rear view mirror. The stock market at all time highs is testament to this fact – a fiction completely removed from reality by the machines.
