Young Men — You Are Being Gaslit


Gaslighting was covered previously here

To summarize, it is when people/institutions around you tell a story, act like it is correct, and are seemingly surprised when some might not believe it.  It is rather effective when done well with respect to convincing a person that they are wrong.

Young men are especially vulnerable.  Being young, they don’t have the experience that can be useful in assessing what they hear.  In addition, they are the targets of a general gaslighting campaign to mold them into what they should be,  and to keep them in line.  Note that it apparently is getting less and less effective, requiring doubling down, which for more and more gives the game away.

Rather than detail this campaign, I will leave it up to the young men reading this to consider how this is being done to them.  When one figures something out for themselves, it often elicits a much stronger response, one that is longer lasting.

Exit question — So how are young men being gaslit today?

    Look at the Bernie Bro phenomenon. A large swath of Democrats have figured out that their party is a subsidiary of the very One Percenter political-industrial complexes they’ve been raised to rebel against. It’s fascinating in a very twisted way.

    “Give us Totalitarian Communism Or Give Us Death!”

    Then the Establishment Democrats doubled down by rigging the voting to favor Creepy Joe, somebody who demonstrably is mentally incompetent for high office, and now it sounds like he’s just a delivery vehicle to get Cuomo or some other inner-circle, unelectable Establishment figure get elected with a Vice Presidency.

    Interesting.

    Cuomo “seems” to be buddying up to Trump right now and Trump “seems” to be falling for it. So which of them is the fake and which is the fool… neither or either or both?

    From the start, the ostensibly serious press often focused on frivolous gotchas rather than pertinent questions — why is the president calling a virus unleashed by the Chinese communists a “Chinese virus?” and so on. At yesterday’s White House briefing, a reporter — I couldn’t track down the name or publication of the journalist, but he had all the pretensions of serious reporter — asked the president of the United States, “How many deaths are acceptable?”

    This stupid query might have seemed strange to anyone who didn’t exists in Twitter’s zeitgeist, where mainstream journalism’s agenda is dictated by left-wing punditry. But the question was a manifestation of a talking point pushed by leftist pundits: Their hot take is that Trump wants to sacrifice your grandparents to pump up the Dow.

    Teen-aged attention whore and religious scold St. Greta Thunberg claims she “likely” has the coronavirus WuFlu. She wasn’t tested for it, nor was she hospitalized or even examined by a doctor. She just diagnosed herself, self-quarantined, and then took the opportunity to piously lecture the rest of us sinners about the need to stay at home.
    And speaking of attention whores, TDS deranged “comedienne” Kathy Griffin is complaining that she’s in a coronavirus “isolation ward” with ‘unbearably painful symptoms’ but they’re refusing to test her for the coronavirus. Because Trump. She’s obviously lying her ass off and her claims have been thoroughly demolished already.

    So perhaps a coronavirus infection is becoming a new thing that allows the unscrupulous to claim victim status. It’s a particularly easy one to claim, because you don’t to do anything or look a certain way, you just claim that you have it and hey presto, you’re an instant victim. The only question is where it should be placed in the Grievance Hierarchy. I’m thinking above “womyn” but below “gay.” But views may differ on this.

    And the bigger question that I have, which we’ll address in much greater detail next week, is what kind of country are we going to have when this is over? Because it isn’t gonna be the same country. I mean, why even have budgets? We don’t have $2 trillion to be giving away to people. I’m not objecting to doing it, don’t misunderstand. We don’t have the money. We have a national debt of 22, $23 trillion. We don’t have this money. We’re printing this money.

    a somewhat stupid question I have yet to hear any rational answer for….

    The US government just wrote a 2 trillion dollar check ($2,000,000,000,000 – 12 zeros) as a give away. oookay. So once the money is distributed, who gets to pay it back and when? Unless the Federal Reserve has a direct link to a vast cavern of stashed cash, where will all this money come from?

    Most taxpayers will get checks or direct deposit of this “freebie” and I would assume most people would really like to cash those checks one they arrive in their grubby paws, no? again, where the fuck is the actual money coming from?

    Nobody pays it back. Instead, all the dollars that currently exist… in your wallet, in your bank account… become worth less than they used to. It’s the government stealing from you, except that instead of robbing your bank, they make more dollars and pretend they’re yours.

    That’s why tyrants love fiat money. They don’t have to steal what they can make more of at will. The only way they can get outsiders to trust such money is linking its value to a commodity of some kind… gold is the most famous.

    But the US Gov’t uses oil. Which is why the Mideast is a huge, huge deal to us… if Saudi Arabia stops demanding dollars for oil then the petrodollar’s value disappears.

    It’s also why Democrats want to stop fracking. It makes us independent of their foreign allies. Not that the Republicans will ever cut Israel loose regardless.

    It’s a huge mess and I want it to just die in fire, except we innocents will be the first to suffer.

    TL;DR after the Chinavirus passes, spend your money to prep for a recession while your dollars are still worth something. Especially if Congress/Federal Reserve make any more trillions of dollars magically appear.

    NEW YORK, NY—The New York Times unfurled a giant, 50-foot-wide banner honoring “brave revolutionary” Chairman Mao Zedong outside its New York offices Monday.

    “This is to bring hope and inspiration to Americans everywhere.”

    After public outcry, they admitted this might have been “slightly inappropriate.”

    “While we stand by our decision to honor one of history’s great men, we admit the banner lacked important historical context,” said one Times editor. “While his ideas were morally right, they factually killed a bunch of people, and that’s not something we wanted to promote. Unless you’re killing yourself to combat climate change.”
