Network: the last great film about The News

When a new epidemic is launched and promoted, despite the lack of good science and good evidence, it is jacked up on television screens. Images begin to flow:
An emergency medical vehicle on a street. EMT personnel, in hazmat suits, load a man strapped down to a stretcher, into the van. On another street, a man collapses on the sidewalk. We see a quarantined man sitting inside a huge plastic bubble on a third street. Cut to an airport lobby. Soldiers are patrolling the space among the crowds. Cut to a lab. Close-up of vials of liquid. Camera pulls back. Techs in light green scrubs are placing the vials into slots of a table-top machine. Auditorium—a man on a platform, wearing a doctor’s white coat, is pointing a wand at a large screen, on which a chart is displayed, for the audience. Back to the street. People are wearing face masks.
These images wash over the television viewer. Meanwhile, the anchor is imparting his prepared meaning: “The government today issued a ban on all travel into and out of the city…hundreds of plane flights have been cancelled. Scientists are rushing to develop a vaccine…”
The television audience has an IMPRESSION of knowing something. They’re in the flow, the flow of the news…they’re in the images…
—Network, the 1976 film written by Paddy Chayefsky, reveals what media kings would do if they unchained their basic instincts and galloped all the way into the madness of slash-and-burn Roman Circus.
The audience is jaded beyond recall. It needs new shocks to the system every day. The adrenaline must flow. The line between reporting the news and inventing it? Erase it. Celebrate the erasure. Watch ratings soar.
Why pretend anymore? Why spend countless hours preparing and broadcasting synthetic artificial news, as if it were real? Does the audience care about such niceties? The audience just wants action.
The film proceeds from these premises.
Arthur Jensen, head of the corporation that owns the Network, speaks to unhinged Network newsman, Howard Beale, who has revealed, on-air, a piece of the real planetary power structure in a few moments of sanity: “You have meddled with the primal forces of nature, Mr. Beale, and I won’t have it!! Is that clear?!… You are an old man who thinks in terms of nations and peoples. There are no nations. There are no peoples. There are no Russians. There are no Arabs. There are no third worlds. There is no West. There is only one holistic system of systems, one vast and immane, interwoven, interacting, multivariate, multinational dominion of dollars. Petro-dollars, electro-dollars, multi-dollars, reichmarks, rins, rubles, pounds, and shekels. It is the international system of currency which determines the totality of life on this planet. That is the natural order of things today. That is the atomic and subatomic and galactic structure of things today! And YOU have meddled with the primal forces of nature, and YOU WILL ATONE!”
Head of programming for the Network, Diana Christensen, shifts the whole news department over to the entertainment division.
Thus emerge new shows with soaring ratings: Howard Beale, [Religious] Prophet of the Air Waves; The Mao Tse-Tung Hour, in which a guerrilla group films itself carrying out armed bank robberies; and Sybil the Soothsayer, a Tarot reader.
Diana becomes the network’s new executive star.
There is no longer even a pretense of a need for news anchors to appear authoritative, objective, or rational.
Diana Christensen is unstoppable. She sees, with burning clarity, that audiences are bored to the point of exhaustion; they now require, as at the end of the Roman Empire, extreme entertainment. They want more violence, more insanity, out in the open. On television.
In promoting her kind of news division, she tells network executives:
“Look, we’ve got a bunch of
hobgoblin radicals called the
Ecumenical Liberation Army who
go around taking home movies
of themselves robbing banks.
Maybe they’ll take movies of
themselves kidnapping heiresses,
hijacking 747’s, bombing bridges,
We’d open each week’s segment
with that authentic footage,
hire a couple of writers to
write some story behind that
footage, and we’ve got
ourselves a series…
“Did you see the overnights on the
Network News? It has an 8 in New
York and a 9 in L.A. and a 27 share
in both cities. Last night, Howard
Beale went on the air [as a newscaster] and yelled
‘BULLSHIT’ for two minutes, and I
can tell you right now that tonight’s
show will get a 30 share at least.
I think we’ve lucked into something…
“I see Howard Beale as a latter-day
prophet, a magnificent messianic
figure, inveighing against the
hypocrisies of our times, a strip
Savonarola, Monday through Friday.
I tell you, Frank, that could just
go through the roof…Do you want to figure out
the revenues of a strip show that
sells for a hundred thousand bucks
a minute? One show like that could
pull this whole network right out
of the hole! Now, Frank, it’s being
handed to us on a plate; let’s not
Television in the “real world” isn’t all the way there yet, but it’s close.
In Network, Diana Christensen personifies the news. She is the electric, thrill-seeking, non-stop force that is terrified of silence.
She lives and feeds on adrenaline. So does the viewing public. Nothing else ultimately matters. Ratings are the top line and the bottom line. The individual and his thoughts are completely irrelevant.
Howard Beale, over the cliff, a news man screaming on-air about the insanity of the news, is perfectly acceptable, because the audience is simply responding to Beale’s inchoate outrage and their own. Nothing deeper is explored. What could have resulted in a true popular rebellion is short-circuited. Beale becomes a crazy loon, a novelty item. Yet one more distraction.
When, in a brief interlude of clarity, he begins telling his audience about the takeover of society by mega-corporations and mega-money, his show droops. Ratings collapse. Diana is no longer interested in him; she wants to sack him.
However, Arthur Jensen, the head of the corporation that owns the television network, wants to keep Beale on the air, as a messenger of the “galactic truth” about the beneficial integration of all human activity under the rubric of global money and global power. He converts Beale to his cause.
Diana sees only one way out of this ratings disaster: kill Beale; on-air; during his show. And so it is done.
Network also shows us the audience becoming actor, player, participant. The audience is jumping out of its skin to be recognized, courted, and adored as a mighty rolling force embodying no particular meaning.
Audience wants to be a star. Audience wants to BE news; audience wants its actions to be shown on television. That establishes its legitimacy. Nothing else is necessary.
Diana knows it, and she is more than willing to accommodate this frantic desire, if only her bosses will let her go all the way.
The best film ever made about television’s war on the population, Network stages only a few minutes of on-air television.
The rest of the film is dialogue and monologue about television. Thus you could say that, in this case, word defeats image. Which was scriptwriter Paddy Chayefsky’s intent.
Even when showing what happens on the TV screen, Network bursts forth with lines like these, from newsman Howard Beale, at the end of his rope, on-camera, speaking to his in-studio audience and millions of people in their homes:
“So, you listen to me. Listen to me! Television is not the truth. Television’s a god-damned amusement park. Television is a circus, a carnival, a traveling troupe of acrobats, storytellers, dancers, singers, jugglers, sideshow freaks, lion tamers, and football players. We’re in the boredom-killing business… We deal in illusions, man. None of it is true! But you people sit there day after day, night after night, all ages, colors, creeds. We’re all you know. You’re beginning to believe the illusions we’re spinning here. You’re beginning to think that the tube is reality and that your own lives are unreal. You do whatever the tube tells you. You dress like the tube, you eat like the tube, you raise your children like the tube. You even think like the tube. This is mass madness. You maniacs. In God’s name, you people are the real thing. We are the illusion.”
It is Beale’s language and the passion with which he delivers it that constitutes his dangerous weapon. Therefore, the Network transforms him into a cheap religious figure, whose audience slathers him with absurd adoration.
Television’s enemy is the word. Its currency is image.
Beale occasionally breaks through the image and defiles it. He cracks the egg. He stops the picture-flow. He brings back the sound and rhythm of spoken poetry. That is his true transgression against the medium that employs him.
The modern matrix has everything to do with how knowledge is acquired.
Television, in the main, does not attempt to impart knowledge. It strives to give the viewer the impression that he knows something. There is a difference.
The impression of knowing is a feeling, a conviction, a belief the viewer holds, after he has watched moving images on a screen and listened to a narrator. THIS is what the viewer prefers. He wants no part of knowledge.
A basic premise of modern age is: “everything is (connected to) everything.” This fits quite well with the experience of watching video flow.
Example: we see angry crowds on the street of a foreign city. Then young people on their cell phones sitting in an outdoor café. Then the marble lobby of a government building where men in suits are walking, standing in groups talking to each other. Then at night, rockets exploding in the sky. Then armored vehicles moving through a gate into the city. Then clouds of smoke on another street and people running, chased by police.
A flow of consecutive images. The sequence, obviously, has been assembled by a news editor, but the viewing audience isn’t aware of that. They’re watching the “interconnected” images and listening to a news anchor tell a story that colors (infects) every image: “This is revolution for democracy, created by the technology of cell phones…”
Viewers thus believe something. Television has imparted a sensation to them.
Therefore: a short circuit occurs in the mind.
When you export this pattern out to a whole society, you are talking about a dominant method through which “knowledge” is groped and held close.
“Did you see that fantastic video about the Iraq War? It showed that Saddam actually had bioweapons.”
“Really? How did they show that?”
“Well, I don’t remember. But watch it. You’ll see.”
And that’s another feature of the modern acquisition of “knowledge”: amnesia about details.
The viewer can’t recall key features of what he saw. Or if he can, he can’t describe them, because he was inside them, busy building up his impression of knowing something.
Narrative-visual-television story strips out and discards conceptual analysis. To the extent it exists, it’s wrapped around and inside the image and the narration.
Paddy Chayefsky made his pen a sword, because he was writing a movie about television, against television. He was pitting Word against Image.
When a technology (television) turns into a method of perception, reality is turned inside out. People watch TV through TV eyes.
Mind control is no longer something merely imposed from the outside. It is a matrix of a self-feeding, self-demanding loop.
Willing Devotees of the Image WANT images, food stamps of the programmed society.
The triumph of Network is that it makes its words win over pictures, IN a picture, IN a film.
A pandemic, the false pandemic I’ve been rejecting in many articles, is delivered through video flow and narration. Stacked and cut images.
There is no challenge to the flow in any basic way, through the intrusion of actual knowledge, because that would shut down the parade of images and nullify the reasons for broadcasting them in the first place.
The old theater adage, “the show must go on,” when adapted for television, becomes, “the flow must go on.” Once its course is set, there can be no turning back.
The television audience, imprisoned in homes, rides the river…

I wish we could start talking about SOMETHING ELSE besides the pandemic that isn’t.
I’m so sick of hearing this crap from every direction, all day and all night, it’s just getting flat-out disgusting.
Certainly, there must be something else we can focus on.
If America had been focused on REAL LIFE last year, we wouldn’t be in the democrat mess we’re in right now. We all knew Adam Schiff and his cronies were up to something but we failed to pay attention, and now look what we have. And he’s STILL ON TV TALKING ABOUT TRUMP. The man is a weasel with vengence for Trump that is non-stop. Why don’t we start talking about how to get rid of some of these insane democrats and their unGodly rules??
Because you wouldn’t HEAR IT ANYWAY.
From what you have written, you are JUST AS ASLEEP as the people you are ranting on about.
Trump was/is as much a part of the PROBLEM as whatever else you think is behind the troubles of these times.
The Howard Beale speech from NETWORK just quoted above should be modified slightly, after 4 decades of exposure, to replace the word TELEVISION with INTERNET.
Dear Arthur Danu, Yes, we’ve all been affected (infected?). From birth, the images and the words were programmed for a bigger, deceitful purpose. They call it “programming” for a reason. Words mean things.
Only through a personal commitment to the truth can one escape the many traps set for our slavery. It’s our time and duty to “wake up” and stop “American Dream”-ing. Thank you for your comment.
Please watch this with an open mind-while considering all the truth that’s in this insightful article: “Pandemics are staged on Television”.
The truth is…
“There is no
longer even a pretense
of a need
for news anchors
“I think we’ve lucked into something…”
is the word.
“There is a difference.”
Must create the work.
“There is no
challenge to the flow
in any basic way…”
Perhaps there IS,
if we but listen,
personifies the news.
…terrified of silence.
The Ancient Archer rises just past Midnight’s curtain’s falling. He looks to the countenance of the deep dark sky. Cobalt blue with streaks of coal, stretch across his horizon & wafts through the air. Silence.
He turns his helmeted head to & fro, feeling Passion’s pain. Like Cupid, he desires Passion’s gain.
He finely-crafted his bow. Once a standing tree, that now sees unseen.
He threads his loop upon the lower notch & secures it fast, upon his mast. He pushes down atop the recurve & attaches string’s looped-other-ed end. He allows the greater limb to relax, the curve seeks its distance, as strung string sings to tension. Silence.
He wrestles his Osage orange mantle by the riser & deftly spins the strung stinger about a worn fingertip. Worn, but not weary, of heart.
The bow revolves to its silence & lays rest into weathered leathered palm.
He reaches into the darkness behind him & gently pulls a hand-crafted arrow, from its sleeping abode, within hammered leather quiver. Silence.
He plucks his string to sound. While still vibrating, he places arrow’s nock onto the singing string. Silence.
He reads the terrain of gain. He sees it not with eyes of gold, nor silvered stain. Purple mountains shield view. Raging rivers cross his arrow’s path. Valleys swing waters’ flow. Whispering winds whip up their discharge. Phalanx-ed peaks assemble, in-row, in-toe.
No dry-fire within this silent Moment. Silence.
In dancing arching frame-Work, he points honed tip high above Sky. His eye & aim, sharpens still. Silence, all-the-more, stilled.
Silence. Moment. Yet awash in waving momentum. But in a moment more, he studies & steadies himself.
Grasping weathered fingers release in accord. His string sings his strummed chord.
Arrowed-thought takes flight.
The Sailor-Bull BECOMES a pirate.
Dali twists…, keenly, a tapered-moustached-tip.
I just watched Network a couple of months ago! I read you blog every morning, it is right up there with my spiritual books and meditation.
You cut through the thick film of delusion that envelops our society.
I listen to Power Beyond the Matrix daily and have begun your exercises!
I have intuitively known everything you say to be true, but then I would fall into self doubt – ‘they’ can’t be wrong, I must be wrong, I would say to myself. Finding your book and listening to all the research you have done has pulled me into a state of confidence into knowing what I know and following my path of and power beyond the Matrix.
Sounds just like a huge parade of Adrenaline-addicted drama queens on Twit and FB, too.
New way to start the day: Read Jon Rappoport’s blog and then immediately read the headlines (just the headlines) from the New York Times. A smile is just a frown turned upside down.
Your article about pandemics, NETWORK, being staged on television was excellent and more important today than ever before today. You focused on the movie, Network, which I saw a long time ago. You put into words, and reminded me that a series of images can generate “meaning” similar to series of words, except less accurately than a presentation of words.
Your descriptions and depictions of Network were scarily accurate and clarified by your critical remarks. I was happy to have received your communication. I appreciate your existence in my life. We will meet in the future.

Perfecto. So, despite the myth that the internet has opened up the door to knowledge and made television the “dinosaur media”, it’s still the actual source, and the internet only an extension. How did they do that?
The internet really is the door to knowledge; not a
But you have to know where to look and to use your own discernment and intelligence.
It takes thought and effort to find knowledge using
the internet particularly if reading rather than
watching videos. Videos can be paused though giving
time for notes.
Watching television requires no thought or effort
and most people think the TV news tells them the
truth, especially now about the lies and deception which is “covid”.
Go to YouTube and check the front page. It used to be all original content from independent content creators. On topics ranging from spirituality to medicine to politics to sports. Now it’s just endless clips from SNL, Jimmy Fallon and F@#$-your-brain-in-the-a#$-NBC News. Media, big Pharma and their proxies have effectively bought the internet and turned it into the same corporate narrative monopoly we see across all media. What used to be a sea of ideas has become a swirling toilet. Think about that before you dive in.
Here’s a 2003 article that Jon wrote about how HIV=AIDS was also a plandemic with the goal of depopulating the 3rd world.
Many scientists are members of a CULT so they truly believe in HIV=AIDS. But someone in the shadows was propping them up. Anyone who reads one of the many HIV “denialist” books, including Jon’s excellent book, quickly realizes the entire thing is a SCAM. And yet, 99% of the public still believes in it. So my guess is the COVID-19 SCAM won’t be uncovered anytime soon- unless high deaths from the vaccines finally causes the whole thing to collapse.
This link has some pdfs of Stefan Lanka articles about why no infectious viruses exist. Lanka is the inspiration for Andrew Kaufman and Thomas Cowan, etc.
Here’s a summary of Lanka’s main points. The claim is that SARS-COV-2 is a “word” that consists of 30,000 “letters”. (Instead of A-Z, only 4 letters- A,C,G and T/U are used.) The claim is the saliva or mucous of an “infected” person is teeming with this word. So why can’t anyone find the (full) word in these bodily fluids? They also claim this word binds to a receptor in cells and then hijacks the cell’s machinery in order to make more copies of the word, killing the cell. Then why can’t anyone find the (full) word in the body or in a cell culture? Instead, virologists only find snippets of the word. But it turns out our cells naturally produce many such snippets (e.g. exosomes). Since they can’t find the full word, the virologists use PCR to identify “snippets” and then they align them and fill in the blanks with computer models to create the full (imaginary) “word”! Every time they do this process, they find a slightly different word and they call this a “variant”! This is the greatest scientific HOAX of all time and those who perpetuate it are all members of a CULT! If the public understood this, then COVID-19 would be OVER. Instead, 99% of the public just blindly believes all of the lies.
Here’s how PCR is used to detect this “word” in an “infected” patient: Instead of detecting the full “word”, virologists pick a segment of the word instead (e.g. a snippet from the word that is only ~1,000 letters long). They then create primers that consist of the first ~30 letters of the snippet and the final ~30 letters at the end of the snippet. If PCR detects these primers in a test sample, then it will double everything between the primers with every “cycle” that PCR is run (2,4,8, 16, 32 … all the way up to 35 trillion times if 45 cycles are run!) PCR is run in order to magnify this snippet until enough of it is present in order to detect it. The BIG assumption, though, is that the primers are “specific” enough to reliably detect this snippet (who says that the letters between the primers will truly match the rest of the snippet). Even if this snippet is found, then who’s to say this snippet is actually part of the full word?! I.e. PCR is only checking for ~60 letters of the full 30,000 long word! If a high number of cycles are needed to detect this snippet, then you can guarantee that it’s just noise (a tiny fragment that happened to match the primers, not the full snippet). The WHO recommended 45(!) cycles until Biden became president. PCR is a fantastic manufacturing technique, but it’s USELESS to detect a “viral infection”. Fauci and the WHO and CDC all know this and are LYING in order to justify the “emergency” vaccines.
Finally, I’ll mention Bayesian conditional testing, which afflicts all medical testing. Let’s say a test is 95% accurate but only 1 out 1000 people are “infected”. You test positive for the “virus”- what is the chance you’re really infected? 1000-1=999 people are not infected, but 999 x 5%= ~50 people will falsely test positive. The chance you have the “virus” then is only 1/(1+50)= ~2%. 98% of “positive” cases are FALSE! COVID-19 is not a real disease then but rather a reclassification of numerous other illnesses (e.g., the flu, colds, and perhaps EMF as well which can cause “radio sickness”).
Thank you Jon!
Yet another excellent dissection of the playbook with insight, and analysis of the movie I’ve never watched but always intended to. This piece may’ve pushed things over the top.
You have a gift. Thanks again for sharing!
Why don’t we see covid vax being advertised like other pharmaceuticals on tv? Those other products include disclaimers regarding side effects so it would be interesting to see them do the same for the covid vax shots. Given the deep state’s emphasis on covid vax, you would think they WOULD run ads like other products… which obviously “work”, otherwise they wouldn’t buy tv time as they do.
“When a new epidemic is launched and promoted, despite the lack of good science and good evidence, it is jacked up on television screens. Images begin to flow:”
“Jacked up”, indeed.
I’m not the sharpest tool in the shed, but I’ve been taken aback on more than one occasion, at how easily well-educated people are taken in by the gaslighting of mainstream media.
By the way, I’m hearing rumors that the federal government is looking for large numbers of behavioral psychologists to be hired, beginning this fall.
There’s a big difference between ‘well-educated’ and smart.
Way back when: “I’m MAD as hell and I’m NOT gonna take it anymore!”
Now: “Give me ANOTHER… PLEASE! And ANOTHER!…”
Way back when: “God spared an entire city for the sake of one righteous man.”
Now: God witnesses the devolution of an entire World that turned its back on the (now snickered at) idea of ‘righteousness’.
Way back when: We actually LIVED LIVES.
Now: We SIMULATE living lives and continuously share our fabricated simulations with other people who are simulating theirs. With each simulation of magic dancing pixels we get further estranged from real life and from ourselves.
Who knew that the boxy-looking television with the small round screen showing grainy black-and-white flickering images in the corner of the living room back in the 1950s would be the opening Weapon of Mass Destruction/Detraction that would lead to the eventual death of humanity?
Oh yes RS, you nailed it…..Simulated lives. I see it with my own eyes in my family and it is painful.
Jon…..have read MANY of your emails.
However, this one is GOD DAMNED GENIUS.
I trained to work as a TV newsman in the early 70s, then life’s events took me away from that until I became a working actor in the late 90s.
I have in-person perspective on what you’ve written here.
“Television’s enemy is the word. It’s currency is the image”.
I’m proud to say also that I was a Principal actor in Sidney Lumet’s last film: “Before the Devil Knows You’re Dead”.
An offering: Perhaps there were some persons who long ago had the capability of recognizing the garbage spewed by tv screens. As an example, here is a story for readers. On one dreary, foggy, rainy Saturday morning a small group of youngsters gathered in a living room to watch the cartoons. At about 11 AM a young man of about 18 years of age came into the room and said the rain has stopped. How about we turn off the tv and go outdoors and do something else. The youngsters said nothing and kept watching the tube. Perhaps 15 minutes later the older fellow came back in the room and said pretty much the same thing, adding that it was drying up outside. This occurred two more times and the message from older fellow became strongwer and more insistent each time. Then 12 noon came and went by. The older fellow returned about 10 minutes later and was adamant. He told the youngsters – ‘Listen, it is dry and warming up, besides the cartoons are over. How about you guys get out, get some fresh air and sunshine.’ Once more the youngsters refused. Readers will likely never guess what happened next. The older fellow came in once again and made the same appeal. Then, at about 1:30 in the afternoon the older fellow came back into the room with a croquet mallet, walked over and stood right next to the little tv. Without a word he swung the mallet and smashed the tv tube into little shards of glass!
So, there you have a true story. What do you think? This happened in 1970 or 1971. I guarantee this story is true because I was one of those 4 younger folks. Other winesses to the event are still alive and probably at least one of them can recall that day and what took place. So, do you think the older fellow was ‘crazy’ or could it be that he somehow knew that propaganda and lies were the primary message of TV?
In the words of Freddy mercury THE SHOW MUST GO ON
The angles and staging, the one that gets me is undertone of media is the mommy act fake friendly angle, pretend they’re ‘watchin out fer us’, so people keep listening, when nothing they say matters.
Yammer about a traffic accident is nonsense and makes no difference in an area of a million people, while by their silence on what actually matters, it continues false paradigm .
Though, at base also like Jon says the situation comes down to how or why more people yet don’t disengage.
The key to freedom is each other imo, not interloper cons, which so-called media by it’s existance stops people from focus on each other, and what people could otherwise learn from each other. In any case second paragraph in article reminds me exactly of the ebola con, the hazmat suits, paid off doctor cons in white coats doing their act, so staged. What if one day everyone in media said ‘i’m part of a distraction always have been’, or they duck out and computer sims that sound exactly like them do the chatter, but it’s all computer. Wonder how many would know the difference.
Anyway you’re the best Jon, haven’t been able to read much lately, caught up in a negative thing at moment but think of you every day and appreciate knowing your effort, and I share the site every day when I’m out doing something. I just strike up a two second convo and say hey on the covid thing just look at this site and give them site address. Makes me feel better knowing I’m doing something, as Jon is doing something, and other commenters are doing something,
cuz ya wanna be starting somethin, you know you got to be starting something
vegetable paragraph, I take as they feed off us, and last one lift your head up, worth copy I think.
Ma-ma-say, ma-ma-sah, ma-ma-coo-sah, Jon.
People made television in their own warped interests, so naturally the “news” portion is largely destructive to what is right and good. As long as the masses of asses are slaves to their media, there’s no hope for great changes in humanity. People don’t like having to improve meaningfully; that’s an admission that something’s wrong in the first place, and they have far too much “self esteem” for that! Free thinkers need to make our own changes and live in avoidance of the mainstream. The mainstream, specifically in democracies (mob rule), will always be arse-holes forcing their moronic decisions onto everyone, and they’ve always been like that. Sometimes they get it right, but most often they’re a huge and burdensome disappointment, to put it lightly. I pray this changes drastically, of course. Maybe the “Biden” administration’s disastrous blunders will bring that about here in the USA? I can still dream.
The 70s were a prophetic gold mine of movies. We had ‘Network’, ‘Three Days Of The Condor’,’The Parralax Views, and ‘The Formula’. There may have been others but these stand out to me. Each in their own way offered up a sliver of light to show us what was, is and will be happening. Call it predictive programming. Call it a hidden warning from unseen hands but to me, in this day at age, I call them prescient warnings to those who have ears to hear and eyes to see.
Just posted as much to another site and someone tongue lashed me as being a nitwit. They are as the blind leading the blind but too stiff necked to accept the fact that they are.
I remember “The Parallax View”.
A great movie about setting up a ‘fall guy’ for a
political assassination and clearly meant as a reference to the JFK murder and Lee Oswald.
A M$M fifth column of presstitutes and their corporate pimps(cia).
TV and the internet are the reason you don’t know what is true or real. And we’ve sadly reached a point where we may never know again. Reality is brought to you over the airwaves by invisible signals. Nearly all of this reality is now stored in binary code on drives and servers. Accessible for the moment via cables or these same airwaves. But otherwise COMPLETELY INTANGIBLE. ALL OF REALITY IS NOW COMPLETELY INTANGIBLE The entire operations and finances of most businesses are stored in the same form. Your mortgage, retirement, college credentials, healthcare records, etc, all electronic binary code, subject to removal from existence and history with one power outage. All it would take is one switch being flipped for it all to cease to exist without a trace. For reality as you know it to cease to exist. And what’s to stop those at the top from doing this? And then, when you’ve lost everything and the world is one moment from complete implosion, flipping the switch back on with completely new imagery, new companies, new records of who you are, and new truths. You should grasp that the COViD debacle was a dry run of this. A ‘lite’ version. And so many submitted themselves to it. What did so many do during this time? They spent even more time starting at their phones or TVs. Living more of their life in the fickle electronic reality instead of the real one. Where a virus was killing us, police were killing us, whites were killing us. It was such compelling TV, thank God we didn’t have to go to work and miss any of it. So while it may sound cliche, you have to grasp just how astute Jon is in labeling this The Matrix. It fully is to an extent far beyond what you may be willing to believe. All of reality as we know it could be deleted, edited or turned off a minute from now and there would be no getting it back. I laugh when I hear the Trump faithful cursing electronic voting while they all effectively live the entirety of their lives inside a Doninion machine. A manipulated electronic record that is completely devoid of substantive truth, or even the inclination to care what it is. That can be corrupted, rewritten or erased only to have that become the new reality. This is what the electronic information world we live in really is. An illusory program on a computer relayed to you on a screen, with no substantive truth or reality to be found. If it isn’t making you comp!etely crazy, its only because you cannot even summon the brain activity to acknowledge it from your hypnotized state. I have said for nearly a decade now, on these pages and mnay others “Turn off the TV”. It’s the only thing I use the internet for. To tell you to stop using the internet. Go out into the real world and make it real again while you still have a chance.
