The sky is falling, and other bedtime stories
Have you noticed the recent uptick in the “sky is falling” narrative?
Only in February, mainstream mouthpieces have thrown balloons, UFOs, evil AI, China, Russia, H5N1 and M4rburg outbreaks, train derailments, and even Sun malfunction stories to the public. All in a fire-and-forget fashion.
To a casual observer it would seem haphazard and incoherent, but is it? What do those narratives share in common? What are they really telling us, or not telling us?
Fear not, gentle reader, because today we will sort through the smoke and mirrors once and for all.
First things first.
We know that mainstream storytelling is not about facts; we know that because they keep telling us. Indeed, they openly declare that objectivity is “outmoded”.
20th century taught us that the masses do not respond to facts; instead they react to emotions. Official history, mainstream news, Netflix documentaries — they are not dispensing objective facts; they program subjective emotions.
With that in mind, let’s zoom out a bit.
Everything that is actually happening in the world at this moment — everything — is a carbon copy of what happened in the run up to world war 2. But you wouldn’t know this by studying history textbooks. Why? Because history is written by the victors.
It is the victors that decide who the masses love and who they hate.
Dostoevsky, Tolstoy, Solzhenitsyn, Orwell, Huxley, and many others, tried to warn us in their books. But the masses have no time for those books, or any books for that matter. They are distracted by Netflix and Spotify; stupefied by PlayStation and cannabis; depleted by Instagram and Pornhub. They are mentally and physically spent.
But here is the thing.
If you don’t know the truth, everything you do is harmful; harmful to yourself and those who depend on you. Quick examples:
Commercial food is slow release poison, and yet the masses consume it on a daily basis.
Popular culture corrupts and demoralizes, and yet the masses are exposed to it all day, every day.
It doesn’t take much detective work to understand what big farma does to the human body, and yet millions are hooked on it.
The ails of modernity confer immediate rewards in the form of comfort, safety, and pleasure. Rewards are known to program (nudge) behaviors, as long as they are immediate. If you’ve ever trained a dog you already know this. Humanity used to know this. It’s nothing but common sense, but moderners cannot apply common sense any more. They cannot afford to know the truth.
“What is the truth, then?”
There is only so much I can say without causing cognitive dissonance to you and your email provider, but here is what I can state with confidence:
Everything we’ve been taught is a lie.
Mainstream history is a lie. Popular culture is a lie. Uniparty politics is a lie. Every big event — from the Titanic, to Pearl Harbor, and any big thing from there on — conceals a hoax of equal proportions. A heuristic you can apply is: if Hollywood made a movie about it, it’s certainly a scam.
Modern leadership is a racket.
Any prominent figures who oppose the mainstream narrative are fake actors playing the role of the politically incorrect boogeyman or cartoon villain. As for the true leaders, you know, those who try to be honest and do the right thing for their people; their kind is all but extinct. How can you tell the difference between fake and true leaders? The former don’t perish, whereas the latter tend to suffer a public and televised end, designed to act as a deterrent. JFK and MLK are easy guesses. I will let you extrapolate from there but pack some lunch because the list is long.
“Truth is God,” preached Gandhi. No wonder his life was short-lived.
“But who is doing all that?”
Ah, yeah, the quintessential question. Who is “they”?
As we will see later on, it doesn’t matter who they are, but if you insist:
The architects of “our democracy” are the purveyors of global money. If you plan on falling down this rabbit hole please pay attention to global and money in equal measure.
But let’s get back to our quest for truth.
Ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.
– John 8:32
Truth cannot be undone, you see. Once you see it, you cannot unsee it. As such, the only way to extinguish truth is by brute force, and even genoc1de. Any real violence over the last century was aimed at those who were immune to lies. All those recent earthquakes, floods, and train derailments were reserved for people, communities, and countries who did not comply enough.
As for all the rest, you know, the millions who live in illusion? Ah, you don’t need violence for those; they are harmless. Besides, they will happily sacrifice themselves when they are no longer needed. There are many names for them — useful idiots, non-player-characters (NPCs), and so on — but those people play an important role. Prisons have always relied on “overseers,” i.e. prisoners who check and discipline their fellow inmates.
The function of the masses is to solidify, enforce, and maintain illusion. You program the masses with ideology.
The foundational axiom of ideology is that we should “change the world".
Just walk through the non-fiction isle of any commercial bookshop and you’ll be inundated with novel, colorful, and woke proposals for “fixing” the world.
This is a fallacy.
Why? Because focusing on the world is an exercise that absconds individual responsbility and personal effort.
Ideologies convince the masses that it is always someone else’s fault: the patriarchy, the bourgeois, the rich, the land-owners, the meat-eaters, the smokers, the deniers — their list never seems to run out.
Ideology programs people to believe that their salvation relies on what others do or do not do. Examples include:
The world will not be safe unless everyone wears a face diaper. The world will not be safe unless everyone stops eating meat, unless everyone stops using internal-combustion engines, until everyone stops smoking, and until everyone stops saying certain things.
No-one is safe until everyone is safe.
– Unicef, May 24th 2021.
According to ideology, our fate is contingent on what happens to the external world. Infected by that worldview, one can easily lose faith by watching the hopeless “sky is falling” narrative fabricated by global institutions and mouthpieces. Ideology is nihilism.
“You didn’t answer my question. What is the truth?”
Okay, here comes.
Truth is a discipline; it is an individual practice and way of life; truth is life.
Once the individual — you and I — reclaims the truth, once we reclaim ownership of our lives and once we start making good decisions, our mission is complete. That’s what we are here for.
Truth is empowering because it places our fate into our hands. No wonder the architects of “our democracy” are so afraid of it.
“But how can I find truth in this world of lies?”
Here is what moderners don’t understand.
Truth is not knowledge. You don’t need anyone to give you truth; you don’t need to be educated or sustainably developed. If you plant a seed, you will reap fruits; you will feed yourself and your family. Everything else, everything beyond our immediate domain doesn’t even exist. It is not real.
The goal of conventional education is to replace objective reality with relative and malleable ideas.
Did we land on the moon?
Is the earth a globe?
Do viruses exist?
How many genders are there?
How do we stop global warming?
Such questions do not belong in objective reality. Answering them won’t help us find food; they won’t help us be healthy. They are fake constructs manufactured to obstruct the truth. The 20th century demonstrated quite clearly how the absence of truth leads to famine, sickness, and world war.
But here is the beauty of it all.
It doesn’t matter what the world does. We don’t have to complain or protest about the actions of others. All that matters is what each of us does in our daily lives. Our own decentralized reality is the beginning and end of it all.
How can I feed and protect myself and my loved ones?
How can I stay healthy?
How can I find beauty?
How can I be good?
The greatest lessons are away from the falseness of academia, Hollywood, and black-mirror displays.
I find truth when I am outdoors, climbing a mountain, starting a campfire, purifying my water, fixing my tools, walking barefoot, feeling the earth, and healing my body with natural means. I embody the truth when I am self-sufficient, moral, and free.
And wouldn’t you know: the more time I spend in reality, the less I care about what the world does.
After decades of domestication; after decades of induced powerlessness I am now learning to walk as a free man.

If you get value from my work, please buy me a coffee or send me some sats.
I was in the rural mountains of Haiti for two weeks to visit my family there. That experience has forever changed my life. Life in Haiti is real. You're in nature. There is interdependence between people, plants, and the animals. You can see the entire sky at night. Returning to the US feels like returning to a simulation. Life here feels unreal. People create their problems.
I have no questions with this piece and I also enjoyed/was agreeable with it; it must be good work 🌟. Bonne journée et merci!
