This post contains links to relevant and/or useful videos, I recommend reading first, then researching further if you feel so inclined.
I highly recommend watching the "animation", and looking behind the "evidence" link.
For you to have stumbled across this article you must have come to the conclusion that very few things today make any sense.
Don't worry, you're not insane. You are correct in your thinking. Everything is not alright, and hasn't been for a while.
However, it is not easy to explain what is going on. You have to connect dots and do a lot of research on various topics to come to the conclusions I'm going to present to you in this article. It would be impossible to explain everything in one blog post, but this will give you the general idea and hopefully help you on your journey. On your journey for the truth.
Now, let me explain why your life is a lie.
Like Many Stories, It All Starts With A Stack of Cash...
How is currency created? Well, someone prints it of course. I guess today you don't really need to print it, as most people are happy with seeing digits on the screen when they open their bank account. If you think about it hard enough, this alone should set the alarm bells in your head ringing.
The currency in circulation comes from central banks (well, technically from the commercial banks, who get their "allowance" from the central banks). The central banks study current economic situation and aim for inflation target of around 2% all around the world (or so they claim at any rate). So, monetary supply should increase by 2% each year. By default this also erodes the purchasing power of the currency unit(s).
I could use any currency as an example, but as dollar is the world reserve currency, it will do well for our purposes. This picture explains the long term impact of inflation:
As you can see, your one dollar doesn't quite buy what it used to buy. Dollars are nearly worthless today compared to what they were 100 years ago.
What determines the value of currency units? In the past, dollars used to be backed by gold. You could go to a bank and exchange your dollars for an equivalent amount of gold in reserves. This was the case until August, 1971 when President Nixxon appeared on TV to announce that dollar would no longer be backed by gold.
Here's the speech:
This meant that dollar was no longer backed by anything but faith. All other currencies around the world trade against one another, including dollar, and dollar plays the biggest role in this whole big pie. The whole currency system is and has been a massive Ponzi scheme ever since 1971.
If you want to do more research into this topic, I recommend Mike Maloney’s excellent video series "Hidden Secrets of Money":
If you want to see what this monetary system leads to (and what really happened in Japan in the late 80s and early 90s) I recommend the documentary and book "Princes of the Yen" (Prof. Richard Werner):
Now your question might be, "Yeah, I get it, the whole monetary system is a scam, but how is this relevant and why would this mean that my life is a lie?"
While this might be a great revelation to some, it is simply the starting point on this great journey. Your research can't end there if you're interested in the truth.
Who benefits from all the currency printing? The simple answer is: those who are closest to the printer benefit first and the most. The governments, large companies who get bailed out when they're in trouble and anyone else who has close ties to the printing press. Yes, the printing will eventually reach everyone in the economy, but those at the bottom clearly only get pennies compared to the big fish(es) in the system.
The vast majority of people work all their lives for currency units that do not have any value. They then exchange those currency units for something they find valuable: a house, a car, a nice piece of clothing. That's how the system works. People work for currency units that are created by someone somewhere. This is easy to understand.
To put this in a different way, we are playing a game of Monopoly. The people at the top are good friends with the banker and on occasion they get handed better deals as well as free money on the side plus other benefits. The rest of us? Well, we get some money when we finish a round, but other than that, don't expect any changes to the rules. And the people at the very top? They just tell the rest of us how they want us to play the game, and demand we do as they say, or else.
That's a good start to this topic. However, the system goes way beyond this point.
Where Does The Money Currency Go?
Now is a good time to spend some time thinking about where all the funding goes. We know it mainly goes to the big players, such as governments and large organization (such as universities), but what does this actually mean?
If you look into these large organisations, you will soon find that they are indeed connected to same people all around the world. In fact, you are also connected to these people through the Six Degrees of Separation.
Here are some key questions:
Who owns the central banks?
Who owns the majority of all large company stocks?
Would it be possible that the owner(s) of these organisations would be able to decide where all the funding and research goes?
Now, if you control some of the largest organisations, including the printing press that controls the entire population connected to that currency, you could in theory (and in fact) control everyone in the system.
Through these organisations it would be easy to say what gets funded and what doesn't. This would mean that if someone at the top says "X" is a problem (without needing any evidence to back up his claim) he could decide that only research that proves his claim is to be funded. Create a problem, offer a solution.
On this topic I recommend the documentary "Everything is a Rich Man's Trick":
The entire school / university system works under this system. Only problems decided by the people at the top get funded, and everything else is ignored.
I know, having worked in this field, that the government funding programs work the very same way. Only projects that back up or solve problems decided by the people at the top get funded.
It doesn't matter whether real science actually backs up any of what they claim to be a problem. In fact, questioning things is discouraged, which by default is the anti-science approach.
This is all quite clear, and I imagine many readers can understand that this is how it all works. Especially if you've been to university and actually tried to research something. At least I ran into this problem while trying to write my thesis.
Allan Savory explains it all perfectly well:
Science today is not science. It's academia and consensus based on previous consensus, which was based on previous academics.
Now here are some extra questions:
Who designs our curriculum?
Who writes the books used in our curriculum?
Why these people?
Do they have all the answers to our questions?
If you do your research, you will find that these people are, once again, connected to the people at the top.
One could argue that the entire school system is there to simply get people thinking in certain way (not critically) and just enough so that they can be useful towards someone else's greater goals. In other words, they tell you what to think, not how to think. Just a thought.
The people who go through the school system are being indoctrinated to do something for the benefit of the system. The people who spend the most time in the school system are the most brainwashed. Once they are done with their schooling, they'll more than likely have way less or no critical thinking cells left in their brain. This is why most doctors, while they mean well, can't actually think for themselves. They just follow the protocol. This is also why there are very few "Dr. Houses" out in the real world. But, just like teachers, there are "doctors" and "great doctors". Its up to you to find out where the great doctors are.
As an icing on the cake when it comes to university education, Robert Kiyosaki (author of Rich Dad, Poor Dad) refers to PhD as poor, hopeless and desperate. I tend to agree.
Also, is this science?
Remember, these very same people had evidence by real scientists to back up their claims. I'll let you come to your own conclusions.
In summary, modern science works like this: some rich guy somewhere decides X is a problem. He pays "scientists" to prove X is indeed a problem using statistics. There's a whole book written about this phenomenon called "How to Lie with Statistics". The rich guy will then point at his scientist and say "My paid shill is better than your paid shill. TRUST THE SCIENCE!" = Boom, modern "science".
You'd be surprised (well, maybe not anymore) how many mainstream ideas are created using these very same methods. I'll say this: just because the majority believes something is true, it doesn't necessarily make it so.
History Is Written By The Winners
Who writes our history? By now this should be clear to all, it being a famous saying, the history is written by the winners.
Now, I have to ask this question, who wrote the history in the past? The past winners. Throughout history this has always been the case.
One could argue then, that all of our history is a kind of propaganda, and people studying history are simply studying the propaganda pieces of previous winners.
What I'm trying to say here is that we don't really know our history all that well. We only get to hear one point of view, and that point of view usually comes from one, maybe two historians. And that point of view is biased by default.
Unless you personally look into history yourself and question what you hear, read and see, you probably don't know much about history at all. This is true even if the history is "well established", aka "this is how it went, trust us.". Yeah, right.
History, the word itself, is quite funny. HISTORY... HIS STORY. Think about it.
All Media and Art Is Propaganda
This is not something I can easily explain. To fully see it, you need to understand marketing and human psychology. Luckily, I worked in marketing for a while, so I studied these topics out of my own interest. The best people in marketing also know human psychology, for obvious reasons.
This is media today:
It’s not difficult to see how this could be a problem. The media is following a script (literally) and repeating it non-stop. It works on some people. Unfortunately, the amount of people it seems to work on is a rather large number.
Here is a documentary from 1979 that is still relevant today:
These same tactics are used in all media, including films, music and TV shows. These are also the very same media that get all of the funding from the people at the top.
Why all the propaganda? Yuri Bezmenov (Ex-KGB agent) gave us a hint:
Here Steve Jobs explains why movies and media in general feels so out of touch these days:
When the people at the top only rely on statistics and are only surrounded by people who think like them, is it a surprise that over a longer period of time, whatever they produce doesn’t make any sense to the every day man/woman on the street?
What the people at the top are pushing is their idea of a better world, rather than how the world actually is. It's just a bunch of out-of-touch people dictating how things should be from their point of view.
The real people in power, the elites, come up with nonsensical ideas and then tell their marketing team (politicians, mainstream media, celebrities and other personalities... basically anyone willing to sell their soul for a bit of cash) what to think and what agendas to push on the plebs.
It's quite simple, isn't it?
So What Do You Know?
By now you should have come to the conclusion that you (and I... and everyone else) don't really know all that much about anything. This is what Socrates meant when he said "I know that I know nothing". He wasn't wrong.
There is no way of knowing what we know now is actually true. Your life is indeed, potentially all just one big lie.
In order to get to the truth, you need to double and triple check your sources. Question everything, especially the authority. Nobody has all the answers. So, the best we can do is follow the evidence.
What I can tell is that your common sense, your instinct, is a much better teller of truth than anything else. So, do your own research and use your own head to come to conclusions about life. It's your life and it's your truth.
All of that being said, this is not the first or the last time people have reached this conclusion:
Google, Twitter, Instagram and Facebook are controlled by the "people at the top". I recommend services such as Brave Browser, DuckDuckGo, BitChute, Rumble, Telegram, Gab and Brighteon. You'll find that there are many others looking for the truth. One last time: do your own research, think for yourself and question authority.
Also, I found your new spirit animal:
I wrote this article because I started to notice a distinct lack of critical thinking in today's society. I've always paid attention to it, but it just became unbearable at this point, so I felt like I had to do something about it.
I guess the funny (or perhaps tragic) thing is, everything I've said in this article is true, and people already know it. There are famous sayings about all of the topics discussed here. Those sayings didn't just appear out of nowhere. Usually people just don't connect the dots and take a look at the bigger picture. This is also a common topic in comedy acts:
I’ll just point out that there are also all these “isms” going about in our popular culture. Culture is also heavily controlled if you didn’t already notice. I’ll point out veganism and feminism in particular, but these are not the only ones. Did you come up with these ideas yourself, or did someone tell you about them in convincing manner? Once again, these ideas didn’t just come out of nowhere. They were designed and then released into the mainstream culture. Same goes for all mainstream movies, music and books. Record labels and editors heavily censor their artists, and often even write their music and other media for them. To understand more, study Tavistock Institute.
Football is a fun game, but I hope you understand that bread and circuses have been the elite's favourite way to control the masses ever since Roman times. It's just a game, and no, it really doesn't matter who wins in the end.
This doesn't mean you shouldn't enjoy your pastime. Just acknowledge that it is, indeed, just a way to keep you occupied and to keep you from thinking critically about what's happening around you.
Another problem I started to notice was the increased and open support for Marxism and Communism. If you're one of the people supporting these ideologies, I urge you, please go read a book. These ideologies are meant to sound good on paper, but do not work in practice. In the end it always ends the same: the few controlling the many, poverty for the majority and riches for the elite, and death/"re-education" and forced labour camps to anyone who does not agree with how things are going. Read The Gulag Archipelago by Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn to truly familiarize yourself with the ideologies and please, for the love of all that's holy, study and learn from history.
And to those who think a politician can save you, I'm sorry, it is not going to happen. Politicians are selected, not elected. And even if there are one or two good ones who slip through the cracks from time to time, what can they possibly do against the corrupt system? This is the same in all countries around the world. Politicians are simply part of the marketing department for the real people in power.
All that being said, there is yet hope out there. Understand that people are waking up to the facts. We are living in biblical times, truly. The current system is clearly coming to its end, it's not difficult to see the cracks forming. Soon it'll be time to build a new system on top of the old one. The elite has their own plan, and they may yet succeed, but only if we the people let them. There are more of us than there are of them. The more there are people who wake up, the more likely it is that we get to break free from our shackles and build something new and beautiful. Something that lasts for generations to come. I like to believe we're on the path towards that better future. That doesn't mean there isn't some pain to come our way in the meantime. Have patience and know that the truth and common sense always win the end.
You can only sit on top of a throne of lies for so long until the truth comes out. The Emperor has no clothes.
I leave you with this final animation:
