I haven’t always been a red-pilled realist who questions and doubts everything I see in mainstream media. It’s only thanks to the work of internet ‘truthers’ that I have lost nearly all faith in our federal government and no longer believe the narrative I was taught in American history class. But knowing the truth about the world and American history has set me free from illusions, prejudices, unrealistic expectations, and false beliefs that kept me from fully loving God and people.
As a child I was taught that Columbus was a hero, that wars were about protecting freedom, that America was the land of opportunity, and that if you worked hard and were a good person , you would have a nice middle class life. I’ve since learned that there were some details left out in my history books and that America’s government has changed a lot since the Founding Fathers wrote the Constitution .
A lot of what I learned was shocking and upsetting, but it was necessary. My mind had to be transformed by the truth. I discovered that racism was worse than I thought, that it’s very hard to escape poverty, and that bankers play a much bigger role in the world than I ever knew. I also discovered that the two-party system is a facade for an out of control government.
I still believe that America is overall the best country for freedom. However, since being exposed to alternative media, and actual historical facts, I’m much more aware of the ways that America became so rich and powerful and of the role that media played. And that freedom is at risk.
But the good news is that I have come full circle to no longer being shocked when I uncover lies and schemes and to believing once again that most people are decent humans who just want to live their lives in peace. It’s not the public that’s evil, for the most part, they are simply easily manipulated by the truly evil ones behind the scenes. The media is extremely powerful and governments have spent much time and money on figuring out how to control us from birth to death.
I actually love my fellow man more now that I am not so blind to the evil in the world. I think more like a global citizen and Christian than just a patriotic American in that I understand how the good life I lead is thanks to the ideas and work of people all over the world. This is also thanks to the internet.
And my faith in God is stronger than ever. The clearer my understanding of history and current events has become, the more I believe that what the Bible teaches about evil is literal and true. I’m free from false notions I picked up in my youth that the government is going to take care of me. My faith is in God, not man.
Some liberating truths:
1. Some people are afraid of the One World Government, but we have been living in different iterations of the New World Order for a long time. But keeping control of this NWO is an ongoing project. Media and propaganda are tools of social control and mind control.
2. Despite technological advances, the world itself and humans are deteriorating. DNA damage and environmental damage are increasing. Humans are becoming mentally and physically dependent on technology. Replacing human government with artificial intelligence is well under way. This AI system will enable total societal control in the future when it is fully implemented and connected to the smart grid.
3. Good ideas and good people usually get corrupted when money gets involved. The most noble intentions often have terrible unintended effects. What starts out as a program to help people always ends up going on too long, costing too much and making the wrong people richer .
4. Truly free markets are no longer a thing. America has a planned and controlled economy. Recessions are caused by market interventions and greed. Globalization changed everything and multinational corporations and banks make the real decisions.
5. A few people will lie and do unimaginable evil for money and power, or because they think they are better than other people. Also see Destroying Our Health and the Planet through Science.
It was nice living in a naive and idealistic fantasy world, but I prefer to be awake to what’s happening. When I believed the narratives I was less concerned with other people. I believed the myths of “pulling oneself up by the bootstraps.” I had no idea of the amount of suffering in the world.
Now I understand why it’s so important for Christians to stay separate from the world system yet do all we can to share God’s love and help each other. It’s not my job to judge sinners. The important thing is to keep loving God and loving people until the end. I can look for the good and be thankful for it and trust that God is still in control.
