the "right kind of propaganda"
listen to the neurocracy in its own words
"we need to have only the good kind of propaganda" is the same as saying "we just need smarter guys to make socialism work next time."
and its history is just as bleak.
because no one could ever be fit to determine such things. even if we tried with all diligence, candor, and honor to choose these adjudicators, they would not be capable of the task.
and if you think that’s how this process is going to go, i’d like to discuss some really promising opportunities in suspension bridge real estate with you…
these are the sorts of miscalibrated misanthropes who will wind up the trustees of truthiness:
and they are neither sane nor reasonable.
the path here is clear:
1980's: violence is violence
2010's: words are violence
2020's: experiencing basic reality is violence.
won't be long now before hallucination is mandatory.
i mean, jada, who writes for the NYT and the washpo, is about a half an inch from landing here:
and many in her tribe are already well past there, and always were.
this is the terrible price of raising lunacy above reason and elevating victimhood, aggrievement, and fragility above attainment and virtue.
and they feel not just entitled but morally required to exaggerate, lie, and fabricate threats to you to get you to do the right thing.
because these people wear crazy pants.
and they like it.
this is the genesis of the neurocracy, the rule by the most neurotic. they love their masks, their OCD driven needs for unattainable control, and they despise your freedom.

it elevates precisely the wrong people to prominence and entrusts them with power that even an idealized beneficent philosopher king could not and should not wield.
and this is exactly what “woke” must always an inevitably do. it selects for the least calibrated and most performatively dramatic.
and honestly, it’s getting perilously difficult to discern parody from pointing at the left field fence and calling your shot…
though perhaps their own actions may provide some hints:
this rise in politics as drama student drama queens as leadership has led some of the more attentive to ask some questions:
my guess is because they “are the very model of a modern fascist general, with information farcical, doctrinal, and hypocritical”…
if one inhabits a system where those who most successfully profess their victimhood and aggrievement get to wield the power, what could be a better background for power seeking than theater and a penchant for histrionics?
we’re electing the best liars with the least grounding in reality.
giving them control of words and truth and the ideas of credentials and “misinformation” is how you land here:
and you are not going to like it.
every nation that fell to authoritarian totalitarianism didn’t think it could happen here.
and they ignored the signs.
they ignored derangement in leaders, dishonesty peddled as social good, and ministries to decide what truth can be spoken.
these people cannot govern themselves, how on earth could they be fit to govern you?
choose another way.
