A Cognitive Ponzi Scheme
By Edward L. Haugland
The headlines across the major networks are truly surreal. Yet, we have seen this play before, as we look back in history for like periods. For example, many Americans joined the communist party in 1918 through the ’20s. The Nazi was the next fetish of those without a brain, as the party grew in the 1930s (fascists and communists are both far left – or #ComuFascists). Then we found the unhinged during the free-love, drugs, and anti-war rhetoric of the1960’s all fueled domestically and from abroad. We saw the resurgence again with the nuclear scare (e.g., red balloons) of the late 1970s and early 1980’s driven by the so-called anti-war – aka useful and naive idiots – who opposed the deployment of nuclear weapons to counter Soviet expansion – which with President Regan nailed the coffin shut on the Soviets. And today, where once again we see a set of narratives, propaganda, and disinformation that is fully coordinated via internal and external insurgency of our government that led to five years of false investigations, fraudulent show trials called impeachment, and the weaponization of our law enforcement against the common people. The film keeps rewinding, just with modern technology, new pictures, and better lies.
What we are witnessing today is another replay of historical tactics and techniques that are the essence of a war most Americans fail to realize we are in – it is an ongoing, never-ending, Domestic Cognitive War. We are seeing multiple similarities as the older tactics and techniques of subversion and subjugation are reused, repackaged, and resold using various latest information technologies to undermine our unity, country, constitution, and freedoms. We must start believing what we see, if we are to win this stage of the war. Yes – this stage, as I noted above, this war is endless, being replayed several times in the last one hundred years alone. It is time to stop rewinding the film, and realize we must act, think, and operate in the cognitive domain of reality vice the utopian society that is being painted for us.
