Truth in an Age of Mass Deception

“If we’ve all been born into a world of mass deception, then this world of illusion has become our reality, it is our normal.”

Truthshock: the psychological condition induced by a barrage of Truthbombs. Oftentimes accompanied by distress, disbelief, and denial.

TruthShock. I did not appreciate when I created this blog how accurate, how prescient, how appropriate that title was. When I set out to create the blog I wanted to call it ‘The Forest’. Alluding to the well known quote; “One can’t see the forest for the trees”, which is alluding to the fact that when one is in the middle of ‘it’ it is difficult to see the whole, or to even realize there is a greater part. All one can see is the trees in their immediate vicinity, never realizing their reality is but a tiny part of a much greater whole. Thus one cannot see the whole Truth.

When I went to WordPress to create the blog I had no second choice, plan B, or back-up plan. I tried numerous variations of ‘The Forest’ and the quote it came from but they were all taken. I am unsure where ‘TruthShock’ came from. It just popped out. But frankly, it’s a much better title and descriptor than ‘The Forest’. It’s more direct. It’s grabs the attention. And more importantly, it’s true.

A New President? Try Again, America

REALITY CHECK: Can we get real for 2 minutes?

The 2016 Presidential Race has nothing to do with the struggle to repair this broken, malignant and disease-ridden country. You know it, I know it, and I’m about to prove it to most peoples’ satisfaction.

My prediction of how people would react to the 2016 Presidential Race heating up has been very accurate. I don’t usually make such predictions, however, this year I’ve been more interested in gauging our prospects for achieving a peaceful resolution to certain key problems than ever before. Rather than looking at political promises, key events or various forecasts, I’ve been looking more carefully at the demographics of Americans to estimate those prospects.

The system is so irreparably ruined by corruption, criminality and “cronyism” that only an intervention by people on the outside can bring it to heel. The 2016 election will likely unfold according to the script while Americans of all political persuasions are relegated to spectators. Which Americans have the best strategy to regain control, and as the cliché says, “take our country back?” The following is one, possible breakdown of the American citizenry and body politic.
