I UNDERSTAND that conspiracy theories are very popular. A news story is never just a news story any more, it is a ‘false flag’. As such, if you choose to comment on that story, you are being ‘played’ and have ‘fallen for’ the distraction. If you dare have a view on anything that is mainstream, you are not seeing what is really going on, so the story goes.
In sum, when a story breaks, whatever stance you take, right, left or centre, you are told, ‘Oh, that’s not the real story. It’s a false flag. You are such a fool; this is what they want you to think.’ Then someone else pipes up, someone even smarter, along the lines of, ‘No, no, no. They want you think that it is a false flag, this is the real story.’
A third person pitches in, ‘No, they want you think, that you think, they think, that you think, it is a false flag, when it was not, when in fact it was a Pride flag, or a Hamas flag, or whatever, blah, blah, blah.’
Give me a break!
Some stories are just stories. Do we point out the four horses of the media apocalypse, namely bias, hypocrisy, outright burying of a story and its opposite, the media hysteria circus that is utterly disproportionate, when commenting on a story? Of course. Do we know that the media will take every opportunity to push The Message? Yes.
Should we always ask ourselves, why now? Why are you telling us all this now, when it was quite obvious what was going on for years? As well as the above mentioned four horses of media lies, there is the simple question of motivation. Are the three great motivators present: sex, money and power? Usually if we do this simple examination of a story, we can see most media stories for what they are: sometimes nonsense, sometimes serious and often biased.
Therefore, I don’t need to spend my time going down the many rabbit holes out there, the deeper the better. Indeed, even if there is some great global conspiracy, what exactly can I do about it? What is the point of it all? I can’t control this level of global conspiracy anyway. I can just about control what goes on in my own house.
To be honest, for me, I’d rather talk about things I can actually control. Manners at the kitchen table. The fact that everyone is fat and dress like complete slobs. The fact that men and women are being taught to dislike each other. The fact that many of us are just awful, dress awfully, never shut up about ourselves and complain about our lot in life. The fact that babies are thrown into nursery all the live-long day. The fact that no one reads any more. I can handle these things and I think the general slide downwards is worth talking about.
In fact, when you think about it, whether your children ever get married is important. It is perhaps the most important thing that will happen to you in your life. Whether they have children, your grandchildren, is likewise incredibly important. This is something you can have an actual influence on. Do you know what you cannot have an influence on? What is in Hunter Biden’s laptop.
Do not get me wrong. Lockdown, where Covid came from, vaccine injury, the negligent MHRA and the many policy issues – from money printing and tax to immigration and multiculturalism – are important and need investigating as we do on TCW every day. They should be discussed and those responsible called out, but I don’t need to go down 15 rabbit holes to try to say that in fact, I Laura Perrins, am the smartest person in the room and all the rest of you are fools who ‘have been played’. Humility is a virtue, hubris a vice.
Also, there is the virtue of prudence. So, if the government looks to shut the whole country down and print lots of funny money to get us through a lockdown, you ask yourself, is this truly a prudent course of action? Over the long term, when the media hysteria has died down, will the benefits outweigh the harms? Clearly the answer to that was no: it was obvious from the start, which is why I always opposed lockdown.
Similarly with the vaccine – I don’t need to know the finer details of it all. I ask myself, what is the personally prudent and socially responsible course of action here? It does not stop the virus from spreading, so there is no social benefit in taking it, and as this ‘vaccine’ is something that has never before been achieved and was produced in about thirty seconds and the virus presents little personal threat, I don’t need to take it. Let’s move on, what’s for dinner?
Likewise, prudence can very simply be applied to the issue of immigration. On a gut level we know the immigration levels in both the UK and Ireland are not sustainable. It is not fair or prudent to put that level of pressure on public services. We know this in our gut. We can see it with our eyes. The numbers confirm it on further research, but we don’t even need to go that far. And on and on we go.
That’s all I want to say. I have neither the time nor the inclination to chase down every rabbit hole. I analyse the media; I am not taken in by it. But I also like to watch some TV with the children. So should you.
