Why America Acts So Goddamn Crazy

The reason the US power establishment works so hard to manufacture public support for its wars is that it needs that support. The public can make things very, very difficult for the war machine if it stops listening to the propaganda lullabies and decides enough is enough. But that can’t happen as long as the American people are living in fear of the rest of the world. If you want peace, at some point you’re going to have to get okay with letting the world manage its own affairs. There will be no significant peace movement in America until this happens.

September 29, 2017 | I just finished reading what may be the single best takedown of the US establishment’s Russia narrative that anyone has published so far. In an article titled “Russia-gate’s Shaky Foundation”, Consortium News’ Daniel Herman meticulously goes over many of the major glaring plot holes in the official story about Russia’s involvement in the 2016 presidential election after reminding us of America’s extensive and well-documented history of using lies, false flags and propaganda to manufacture public support for war.

It’s a very thorough beatdown on the way the American people are being asked to swallow a collection of extremely grave charges with unfathomably dangerous implications about being “at war” with the planet’s only other nuclear weapons superpower based on amazingly flimsy evidence provided by known liars and manipulators. I highly recommend reading it and sharing it widely, even though the response from many Americans will be to put their fingers in their ears and hum the latest Pepsi jingle to escape the cognitive discomfort of realizing they’ve been completely wrong about everything and having their entire worldview ripped to shreds.
