One of the reasons I live in Anarchapulco is because Western media gets almost no play down here. Typically the days conversation ranges from how beautiful and wonderful of a day it is to when is the next fiesta (invariably it is at least every week).
However, in my role of Dollar Vigilante a big part of my job is paying attention to what is going on in the world… and watching and reading US media always leaves me flabergasted.
Just in the last few months people were up in arms about Ebola. We were all going to die, they said! Something must be done!
That dropped completely out of people’s minds in a matter of weeks when a new scourge appeared. ISIS! They will behead us all, many said!
Certainly with the US government and CIA support of ISIS, even sending them pickup trucks from the US and “accidentally” airdropping them weapons they are dangerous… but I’m not sure someone in Omaha, Nebraska, in the heart of the “home of the brave”, should be hiding in their underground shelter just yet.
Then that seemed to disappear almost completely from people’s minds.
Then recently people cowered when they heard that a muslim man with a shotgun had walked into a chocolate shop in Sydney, Australia, and taken some completely disarmed Australian slaves hostage.
And now, this week, perhaps the biggest terrorist attack in years occurred when some hackers got into some of Sony’s emails and threatened to release more emails about what a bitch Angelie Jolie is if the movie, “The Interview”, was played in theaters!
Forgetting for the moment that the most likely culprit is the NSA, which has virtually every unencrypted email sent in or out of the US on file… the US government looked into this threat and within hours stated that it must be North Korean hackers!
Immediately, demented war monger media like Rush Limbaugh were calling this an act of war! Nobel Peace Prize winner, Barack O’Bomber, and some of his staff, are now pushing for a direct confrontation with North Korea over this.
The problem is that Sony is a Japanese company. So, shouldn’t the Japanese media and Japanese government be the ones doing this? Of course not, only the drama queen USSA would consider it their duty to attack countries over some very vague and unproven computer hack.
Not to worry, though, within a week or two this will all be forgotten when a new, unexpected threat will emerge. Perhaps the next one will be something crazy like a threat that muslims are going to shit in your food in some sort of “fecal jihad”. Wait, they already did that one.
FEAR FEAR FEAR
Considering that the US likes to label itself as the “home of the brave”, they sure do seem to be scared about absolutely everything.
By far the biggest cause of death in the US is “heart disease” and its no wonder. Stress is a massive killer and fear is the opposite of love… meaning that people’s hearts in the US are under constant seige from the stress caused by never-ending fear.
Fasco-communist Franklin Roosevelt even got this totally right when he said, “There is nothing to fear but fear itself.”
If you live in the US the easiest way to remove fear from your life is to turn off your television programming… it’s called programming for a reason. And, if you can, just leave the US for a place where not only does no one worry about things like ebola, ISIS or a movie being cancelled… but they don’t even know what you are talking about if you bring it up.
A place like Anarchapulco… but wait, doesn’t the US government have a “travel alert” on Acapulco? Of course it does, they don’t want you to go to a place where fear doesn’t exist… because then they wouldn’t be able to control you.
This topic was recently discussed on the Angel Clark radio show live from Acapulco… you can listen here.
If you’d like to see what it is like to live outside of the matrix come on down to the Anarchapulco conference from this February 27th to March 1st (book before December 25th for “early bird” discounts). Your heart will thank you.
