Propaganda Misservices

 Deceptively Assaulted,

  It looks like I sort of have to write something about Propaganda" and the misleading qualities of words, even when we mean our best, as we reason through language.    Simplicius hosts a guest essayist on Dark Futura, Isaac Simpson, who has penned Cthulhu Gazes Right

​  Cthulhu is a cosmic entity created by writer H. P. Lovecraft. It was introduced in his short story "The Call of Cthulhu",[2] published by the American pulp magazine Weird Tales in 1928. Considered a Great Old One within the pantheon of Lovecraftian cosmic entities, this creature has since been featured in numerous popular culture references. Lovecraft depicts it as a gigantic entity worshipped by cultists, in the shape of a green octopus, dragon, and a caricature of human form. The Lovecraft-inspired universe, the Cthulhu Mythos, where it exists with its fellow entities, is named after it...
..The short story that first mentions Cthulhu, "The Call of Cthulhu", was published in Weird Tales in 1928, and established the character as a malevolent entity, hibernating within R'lyeh, an underwater city in the South Pacific. The imprisoned Cthulhu is apparently the source of constant subconscious anxiety for all mankind, and is also the object of worship, both by many human cults (including some within New Zealand, Greenland, Louisiana, and the Chinese mountains) and by other Lovecraftian monsters.

T​his aphorism is also instructive: "Jesus Saves. Moses invests. Cthulhu Squanders."

​  Isaac Simpson points out that​ "Cthulhu always swims left", meaning to degrade virtues and morals generation by generation as "old fashioned" and overly restrictive to desires.
After setting the stage in current modernity, Simpson explains propaganda as facilitating with words the alignment of certain interests, and selling this alignment to customers as some other virtue, which just happens to involve their purchase of this particular thing along the way. Branded-Celebrities do this selling in their bold daily tabloid appearances.
  Simpson points out that left-selling has already started to collapse, as for Bud Light, for instance, and that Cowboy hats and pro-football "Americana" is the new growth venue. Cthulhu will market this way, but always to "squander", never to "save" or "invest". 
  As I read history, the easy "squander" to market through right-Americana is going to be hate, "retribution", killing and war. This is a backlash I have been concerned about, because when the current game crashes, somebody will be blamed bigly, and it won't be the "owners". Numerous left-weakling-PC types can be easily targeted. Watch for it. Don't go Brownshirt when it happens.
  Hate and retribution are relatively cheap forms of degradation for the owners, ideally suited to times of declining economy, such as we have entered. There will be blame. Sacrifice pawns, not queens or bishops. 
  All "solutions" must lead downward in social expenditures now, as oil is economy, and net oil peaked a year before COVID, messing with the financial basis of the growth-economy, necessitated by compound interest upon debt-based-money. In Europe they are talking about higher taxes and lower social spending, because a "wartime-economy" is now necessary to "thwart Russian aggression". This comes after the first stepdown of EU oil-economy with the sanctions against Russian oil and gas, and the sabotage of the Nordstream pipelines. The owners need to pay for military and police  to enforce their will(s), while imposing austerity upon the peoples of the world.  For the owners to maintain their position and their profits, the people need to obey them, rely upon them, obey them and accept less and less prosperity in return. This is a very hard sell. There will be resentment, which can be focused upon Jews, gypsies, illegal aliens, white-people or LGBTQ, for instance. The blaming-deplorable-white-people drive seems to have stalled-out this year. Backlash can be arranged. 
  There will need to be some events to focus the hate and resentment of the coming financial-crisis wiping out the investments of the gated-community class. For the owners (through-Blackrock), getting rid of people who collect funded social services would be good to reduce ​their overhead​ costs, while continuing funding for the deep-state spies, police and military enforcers of ​their private ownership.
​  I hope that I have not misused this essay to present where I think Cthulhu is headed as he degrades those who might rise constructively against his malevolence.

  Tessa Lena presents an exploration of how words can become ghosts of reality, unlike lived-experience, which gives meaning and foundation. Abstracted words about a living thing, words with subtle innuendo, can be logically processed to a conclusion which is cold and lifeless, while presenting as caring and compassionate, like the war against the Taliban to give Afghan women their rights back, for instance. 
  The antidote to this, our human fight against the hungry-ghosts, is to live in reality, to live in compassion, to know reality, and to use words with our best intentions, not with sly withholding to gain some secret advantage or hidden profit.
​  Artificial Spirits and Collector’s Mind: A Giant Trap​

​  Henry Kissinger advised Richard Nixon to push American farmers to massively overproduce wheat and corn, to drive down global prices, and to control global grain markets from America's "fertile plains". "Control the food and you control the people." Secretary of Agriculture, Earl Butz said, "get big or get out", and made it not-optional with changes in the structure of farm subsidies. Since then, the US has effectively weaponized wheat, famously selling over a third of US production to the USSR in 1972-1973, when Soviet harvests were poor, to start the process off with a (short-lived) boost to American farmers. It has been austerity for farmers, and domination of global markets for Cargill since then. Russia may change that over the next couple of years. Red sends this article:
​  Russia pushing for BRICS grain exchange
​  Russia is urging the BRICS, a trade alliance of nine emerging countries, to establish an inter-bloc grain exchange. The officially declared purpose of the alliance is to facilitate trade between member states, but analysts warn that the new structure will aim to become an analogue of the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) for the global grain market, with the goal of influencing free pricing.
​  The Russian Union of Grain Exporters (RUGE) first expressed the idea of establishing an inter-BRICS grain exchange in December 2023, in a run-up to the bloc’s historic expansion...
..The proposal didn’t draw much attention until March, when it was backed by Russian President Vladimir Putin.
​  During a meeting with Russian farmers, Putin said: “All benchmark (grain) prices are set in the US and Europe, for example, in Paris. How much grain do the French produce? I think less than we do. And still, according to tradition, benchmark prices are formed out there.”

​  Martin Armstrong, Why Are Central Banks Buying Gold?
​  The West has become extremely aggressive in its geopolitics. You simply do not buy the debt of your enemy($US). Central banks are buying gold because the USD is political... Why would you buy long-term when war, the primary driver of inflation, is looming? This is a serious situation that the neocons who have weaponized the dollar simply do not understand.

  (Stoking civil war is harder when the economy keeps improving,) UKRAINE PLAN OF CROCUS CITY HALL ATTACK TO START ETHNIC POGROMS, CIVIL WAR IN RUSSIA , John Helmer
​  “The unity of Russia’s multiethnic society,” President Vladimir Putin told the Russian Trade Union Congress on Thursday, “is the main fundamental condition of our success. In this connection, and based on the initial results of the investigation, we have grounds to believe that the main goal of those who masterminded the bloody and heinous terrorist attack in Moscow was to damage our unity.”  
​  Putin is repeating the message – four times in two weeks: earlier on March 23,   March 25,  and April 2   — because it happens to be true.
​  What also happens to be true is that during the Yeltsin period, when  asked by Moscow university students what I thought of anti-semitism in Russia, I said: Russians are the most primitive white tribe in the world – they are hostile to the other tribes, the Jews, Chechens, Armenians,  Chukchi, Uzbeks, Tajiks — each one of them equally. After this sociology was elaborated,  invitations to lecture at Moscow universities stopped.
​  The sociological problem which Russia’s enemies have is that the foreign white tribes, like the Galicians of the Ukraine, the Anglo Saxons, and the Blin-Noodle gang ruling Washington,  make the primitive sociological mistake of thinking they can trigger intercommunal warfare inside Russia, to weaken and break it up. The British Secret Service (MI6) made their first abortive attempts at this during the Bolshevik revolution and the civil war following. The US Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) and MI6 have been plotting the same thing since 1945, increasing the resources and accelerating their efforts in the Caucasus during the Yeltsin administration of the 1990s.​ It is therefore no surprise they have convinced their Ukrainian counterparts to implement the same scheme. On Tuesday of this week, The Times of London headlined this plan “Ukraine Stokes Anti-Immigrant Tensions in Russia”.​..
.​. (quoting) Andrei Kovalenko, head of the Ukraine’s Centre for Countering Disinformation (CCD). By weaponizing local ethnic communities like the Tajiks in Russia, the operational objective, according to Kovalenko, is “to exploit divisions and distrust among the Russian public.”  
​  Kovalenko is conceding the Ukraine strategy behind the Tajik gunmen’s attack on the Crocus City Hall on March 22. But the foreign tribesmen have misread the Russian sociology again. The attack has failed in its war objective.​..
..Polling results over the years show that positive and negative Russian sentiment has been moving on several measures of social distance — acceptance as family members, friends, neighbours, citizens, temporary workers on visa – in different directions for different ethnic groups.
​  The improvement in the Russian perception of Ukrainians and Jews has been sharply reversed by the Kiev war on the Donbass and then the Israeli war against Gaza. By contrast, the political, economic, and media efforts of the Putin administration to cultivate strategic relations with China, the African states, and the Caucasus, including Chechnya, have accentuated the positive, diminished the negative.
Lev Gudkov, Levada’s chief sociologist (Jewish), reporting on the December 2021 survey, has been reluctant to admit that Soviet ideology and Marxist education significantly reduced Russian xenophobia and racism​...  Gudkov has also not acknowledged that since 2013 rising real incomes, employment mobility, and public optimism have acted together to reduce the negative sentiments of the 1990s.​..
​..“The overall intensity of negative attitudes has been decreasing in recent years. This is especially noticeable in relation to ‘Jews’ (an increase in positive attitudes from 2010 to 2021 from 22% to 45%; a decrease in negativity and various kinds of restrictions over the same period from 34% to 22%), ‘Chinese’ (the share of positive or neutral responses increased from 12% to 28%; the share of negative decreased from 62% to 45%), ‘Chechens’ (the share of indicators of tolerant attitudes increased from 9% to 22%, negative decreased from 57% to 41%). The attitude towards Africans retains a predominantly negative and cautious tone (an increase in tolerant opinions from 12% to 22%, negative ones remained almost the same, 58%-60%,  during 2010-2020, dropping by December 2021 to 51%). The same can be said about Gypsies (the growth of positive attitudes from 7% to 15%; the volume of negative attitudes ranges from 54% to 63% in August 2020, then decreases to 51%).”
​  Also, Gudkov’s survey of December 2021 confirmed that in the Russian labour market, the migrant worker problem has been intensifying, although unreported Levada data show that the balance between positive and negative sentiment varied markedly between regions and cities, and between income and age groups; that is to say, there is a correlation by social class.​..
​..In his public assessments of the Crocus City Hall attack, President Putin has been carefully balancing the elements of public support for combating Russia’s foreign enemies and for  remedying domestic labour market stress. In parallel, since March 22 there has been a new drive by police and prosecutors to crack down on illegal immigration from Central Asia and on the state official corruption which has encouraged it.​..
​..Russia is unique not only for its ethnic diversity, but also for the very form of coexistence of different peoples and religious groups. In Russia, during its entire historical path, there was almost no forced assimilation of small peoples. Moreover, minority cultures, languages, and identities were maintained at the state level, especially during the Soviet period.
​  On the one hand, this was a condition for interethnic peace in a large and diverse country. But on the other hand, it was among minorities, who retained their ethnic identity thanks to Moscow’s policy,  that the external forces were looking for the most radical “fighters against Russian imperialism.”
​  Russia’s internal diversity has always been perceived by external players as our weakness, a condition of the “non-monolith”. This gave rise to the idea of Russia’s opponents to split our country primarily on a national basis.​..
..Now the Kiev regime and its special services are publicly boasting about operations of this kind against Russia — and a British newspaper is relishing these details.
From the point of view of Russian legislation, we are faced with subversive, anti-state activities which can be characterized as terrorism, incitement to overthrow state power, and incitement to ethnic hatred. Consequently, the relevant Ukrainian structures should also be characterized by us as terrorists and their leaders as leaders of terrorist organizations.

Over the last 30 years, NATO has lost its veneer of a "defensive" alliance, turning into an overtly expansionist and interventionist military bloc​.

​   It is obvious that Ukraine was involved in the terrorist attack in the Crocus City Hall concert venue on March 22, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said on Thursday.​  (Must fund military industrial complex at all costs!)
​  "Now they want to turn voluntary military assistance to Ukraine withing NATO into mandatory military assistance. To force all NATO members through strict discipline to sign up for the mandatory provision of funding and weapons to the Kiev regime," Lavrov said at the round table with ambassadors of over 70 countries dedicated to the Ukrainian crisis.

​  Israeli soldiers can be seen shooting starving Palestinians collecting food aid in the northern Gaza Strip in footage released Thursday by Al Jazeera.
The video shows Palestinians collecting aid from an airdrop while IDF soldiers fire on them repeatedly.
​  One Palestinian man walking away from the scene after filling a bag with aid can be seen getting shot from behind by the IDF while posing no threat to anyone.
The IDF continue to shoot at him after he falls to the ground, fighting desperately to cling to his life.
Eventually, the man accepts his death and is seen being surrounded by a pack of stray dogs.

​  Even the Netherlands is hearing about the Louisiana Senate victory against the WHO and the WEF (see story below). And a bill to make ivermectin and over-the-counter drug in Louisiana just made it out of committee. Tennessee already passed such a law. New Hampshire got very close but its RINO governor Sununu refused to sign it.
​  The really good news is that identical bills as Louisiana’s have been introduced in Alabama and Tennessee, and strong legislators are pushing them forward. So keep your fingers crossed.​

​  Ben Davidson has patched together 48 minutes of videos to present the Solar Catastrophe 12,000 Year Cycle in one video. Several concepts are repeated.
  The gist is that there is a galactic current sheet rotating from the galactic center with positive and negative sinusoidal undulations, which passes our way with a polarity reversal every 12,000 years. This is supported by fossil evidence of changes on 12,000 year markers. 
  Another thing that happens, apparently each 12,000 year repetition, is a solar micronova, caused by the accretion of dust (carried by the galactic current sheet and now increasing in our solar system) onto the sun's surface, which is then explosively thrown off, creating "nova isotopes" which are in evidence in sediments on earth, with no other explanation. The magnetic field change "kick" is the other thing shown to trigger various sized nova events. 
  Stars in the approach path of the galactic current sheet have displayed these phenomena over the past 50 years, in appropriate succession, and our solar system is next, already experiencing weakening magnetic fields and wandering magnetic poles. 
  The flux of energy from the micronova is variable and comes in an initial flash, then arrival of charged particles, then arrival of high speed energized debris, with nova-isotopes. 
This may be, and apparently has sometimes been, enough energy transmitted into the mantle layer below the tectonic plates to loosen them, and facilitate a 90 degree shift of rotational poles, with north and south poles becoming equatorial, and two equatorial areas becoming rotational poles. From what I read polar ice cores go back more than 24,000 years, so this particularly devastating event is not every 12,000 year cycle. The expected arrival of this event is before 2050.
  Ben's presentation style may irritate you, It irritates me. The content is worthy of your consideration.
