It has been a while since the prevailing world system fully adopted formal cheating as one of its premiere operating principles. Unfortunately, this vice, like many other vices, has managed to deeply penetrate the citizenry’s psyche, particularly in the powerful states of the system. Systemic cheating, camouflaged by bureaucratic processes/procedures/manipulation, etc., is one of the most coveted assets of the system’s cronies. Don’t forget; late modernity is fully anchored by crony capitalism. As is well known, in any given human society it is (by and large) the established economic order that dictates values, norms, mores, etc. As a result, cheating is now condoned or even celebrated by the ruling psychopaths of the world system! See the article next column and others on page 36, 37 & 38.
It seems the current nation states of the world have to rely on systemic cheating to prevail, both internally and externally. To institutionalize cheating, it has become imperative to lie, systemically! To this end, a hidden power behind the formal power is established in the powerful countries. It is labeled the ‘deep state’. Recall that our definition of the ‘deep state’ also includes the media. Deep State = the military-intelligence-industrial-banking-media complex. In this entity, the significance of the media cannot be overemphasized, as it is the preeminent institution of systemic cheating/lies. Lies are effectively employed by the status quo to zombify the global sheeple (human mass)! Just like the ‘banking’ component of the deep state includes all that is financialized, the media component also incorporates the so-called entertainment media (movies, etc.) To be sure, this kind of systemic lying is not in the category of ‘white lies’! Politicos cheat/lie on a daily basis and sadly the sheeple has resigned to this pathetic reality of the oppressive order. Electoral democracy is utilized as one of the most convenient venues to instill systemic cheating/lies across the globe. Since electoral democracy has delivered untold benefits to the cronies of the system, the global status quo enshrines it as the ultimate manifestation of democracy itself!
The world economic system is based on massive fraud. The built-in cheating of the global economic system includes Fractional Reserve Banking (FRB). This fraudulent system of banking is one of the pillars of the globally structured cheating regime. See Zeus’ articles on page 36. It is generally assumed that banks loan money from a pool of deposits. This is a lie! The so-called deposits are mere decoys! This lie is used to hide the criminal principle that underlies FRB. FRB is when banks lend money that is created out of thin air into the economy. These loans accrue financial rents or interests. In other words, it is this ‘fake money’, which is not earned a priori by anyone in the economy that continues to create the massive inflation afflicting the world’s sheeple. For the most part, it is this fake money that is minting fake millionaires and billionaires on a daily basis, including the fledging oligarchs of poorer countries like ours! See Bonner’s article next column. To cover up this massive criminal operation from the global human mass, protracted/systemic lying had to be instituted. The various institutions of indoctrinations (schools, universities, etc.) are leveraged to give credence to the blatant lies/cheating that propels the prevailing polarizing globalization!
Geopolitics is another of the arena where lies are employed to cover up the underlying perennial criminality. It is now acknowledged that the Main Stream Media (MSM) is only a mouthpiece of the establishment, and brings hardly any genuine information of value to the table, so to speak! For example, when countries are systemically destabilized, the MSM is there giving a helping hand by pontificating narratives that are intended to sound rationale, but are in actual fact distortions of massive proportions. Examples abound; Libya was destroyed so that democracy can flourish there, so we were told! Iraq had to be destroyed because it was harboring weapons of mass destruction, so we were told! Syria, Ukraine, etc., etc. the list goes on! In all of these countries, lies had to be fabricated to justify the hidden criminality of the globally entrenched cheating system! See the article (Swiss Propaganda Research) on page 37.
“Next the statesmen will invent cheap lies, putting the blame upon the nation that is attacked, and every man will be glad of those conscience-soothing falsities, and will diligently study them, and refuse to examine any refutations of them; and thus he will by and by convince himself that the war is just, and will thank God for the better sleep he enjoys after this process of grotesque self-deception.” Mark Twain. Good Day!
