TR 572 - The Future of Humanity Hangs in the Balance of The Fourth Turning

Why macro level perspective is critical to getting ourselves out of this mess.

Have you happened to notice how each news cycle yanks the public’s attention toward one sensational story after another? I’m sure you have. It’s the classic, “If it’s not one thing, it’s another.” There are endless stories to keep us entertained and distracted, all while the global puppet masters continue to advance their dark and sinister schemes.

How many people do you think are getting all spun up about the P. Diddy sex trafficking scandal? Those following this story line may find themselves getting led to darker and darker places, as the very real horrors of child trafficking slowly come to light. Soon, they may come across claims of child sacrifice, tunnels full of blood, and ever more increasingly outrageous stories about things that “most people don’t know.”

It’s a seductive story. I’m using this as an example of how the puppet masters keep a story going, dropping crumbs and clues to lure innocent, well-meaning people into increasingly warped places. It’s the same method used with the so-called “Q Drops”—which always kept people guessing and seeking more clues. There are many people who get swept into this ugliness, precisely because it is so psychologically gripping.

Is child abuse and sex trafficking a very real, very terrible issue? Answer: Yes, it is.

Have you seen The Sound of Freedom?

But are there elite evildoers regularly sacrificing human babies to harvest their precious adrenochrome? Answer: Maybe, but be honest, doesn’t that seem like a stretch?

More importantly, how can we ever really know what’s going on in the world? Answer: We can’t. Instead of knowing for sure, we get to pick our sources and chose who to trust—and that’s where things get tricky.

There are no shortage of people who’d happily sell you a story. The pitch is generally the same: “I’m so and so, I worked in intelligence, and I’ve got some special intel that no one else has.” Now, who doesn’t want some special intel and insider secrets, right? Whatever cockamamie story comes next is very often accepted, hook, line, and sinker.

Personally, I’ve never cared to follow these story lines. It’s always felt as if they had been fabricated for the specific purpose of hooking the mind and leading people astray. All the yammering about White Hats, and how there’s a secret shadow government that’s really in control, all that crap, I’ve always just chalked up as bunk.

I don’t buy it.

It’s propaganda. It’s just another psychological operation, aimed at delegitimizing the MAGA movement and dividing the ranks. That’s why I haven’t given it any time. It’s a distraction that doesn’t interest me—and yet it does still interest so many people. Why?

Let me ask you: what the hell does any of this have to do with reclaiming the Republic? How does any of this serve to defend our liberties against the increasingly aggressive onslaught of authoritarian government overreach? How does this help to restore election integrity, fiscal sanity, and equal justice under the law?

The point is, there is zero value in entertaining the conversation.

But alas, that’s just the humble opinion of mere ignorant peasant.

Circling back to the bifurcation of society we were discussing yesterday, this is just another of the seemingly infinite ways that certain ideas and stories are being used to divide and conquer us all. As I’ve said nearly ad nauseam, united we stand, divided we fall. If continue to allow ourselves to be divided into warring camps that are bickering about conspiracy theories, party platforms, and red-meat social issues, we’re going to lose this war for the hearts and minds of humanity.

Furthermore, if we fail to forge working relationships with people who think differently than we do — think old school democrats, classical liberals, libertarians, independents, rational republicans, and Christian conservatives all working together — then we will surely lose, due lack of support and consensus among the American people, and the emotional mob will be leveraged to rule over us all forevermore.

Yesterday, when I said that “our team is bigger than we think it is,” what I was getting at, is that there are millions of middle-of-the-road Americans who respect the Constitution and value the Bill of Rights. There are millions of Americans who realize our country is headed off a fiscal cliff, that illegal immigration is subverting the rule of law and making our communities less safe, and that the corrupt two-party system has long been running rough shod over the of the American people.

There are millions of people—millennials and boomers alike—who do see what’s happening to our country, and who are mad as hell about. There are millions of people who are ready to do something, anything, to try and correct course before it’s too late.

And yet, despite all this common ground, despite these shared values and the common vision for the future, these same millions of people spend most of their time at each other’s throats, fighting in online forums, and scoffing at the other side from within the safety and comfort of their respective echo chambers.

On the one hand, this is predictable human behavior. On the other, it’s absolutely maddening, because the outcome is more of the same partisan gridlock that’s got us into this mess. Again, if we lift our gaze and consider that the overarching globalist agenda is tightening the noose and continuing to advance on all fronts, when we take into account that weaponized AI is being used to “embed social consciousness” and thereby systematically transform the peasants’ perspectives, and when we see a whole-of-government approach being deployed to convince the masses to trust their masters, we must realize that these problems are not going to go away.

These are the bigger issues that we must stand together to address. These issues represent the gravest threats to the future of humanity, and by extension, the gravest threats to each of us at the individual level. The ruling class is using weaponized AI to brainwash the masses into trusting the government. Simultaneously, they are plotting an endless series of “iterative disruptions” that are designed to keep us pliable and psychologically in line.

Suggestions for further study:

It seems to me that all of that supersedes the political circus by several orders of magnitude. It also seems to me like this is something that everyone would want to know about, and that this conversation might open the door to even deeper discussion regarding what can be done about it. That’s the bigger picture.

Today, the world is being blanketed with news stories like these:

I’m sure you’ve heard all about it. Shock and awe ISIS terror strikes the Russian homeland. Israel have been put in an impossible position because Americans have turned their back on the war machine. The suspicious cargo ship crashing into a bridge, sending shockwaves through already rattled supply lines.

Everyone who’s anyone already knows all about that—because these are the most important things happening in the world today, at least according to the legacy media.

How about Obama jumping back in to help out his buddy Old Joe get reelected? How about RFK announcing the consummate lefty insider Nicole Shanahan (former wife of Google founder Sergey Brin, who was accused of having an affair with Elon Musk) as his running mate? How does all of this playing into the political circus?

How about a former Supreme Court Justice declaring that if the Court continues to interpret the Constitution according to the author’s original intent, then they’ll be “creating” a Constitution that no one wants? What do you make of that?

Do you see how quickly our focused gets diffused between competing story lines? If we scale this fracturing of attention to the national level, it becomes clear why society is so dysfunctional and disjointed. It should go without saying that all of this is entirely by design, and so long as they can keep the majority of people in this fractured state, dwelling solely within their own micro-bifurcations, then We The People will remain hopelessly ineffective and mount very little resistance to global tyranny.

In other words, they’ve got us right where they want us.

In this place, not only will we not be able to win the upcoming election, or any future elections, we will not be able to impose fiscal restraint and prevent economic collapse, we will not be able to make rational decisions about national defense, we will not be able to stop the pilfering of Big Pharma and Big Tech, the abuse of Big Gov, or the steady assimilation of American culture into the homogenized techno-dystopian hell of Global Democracy—and that’s just the tip of the iceberg.

If we are serious about solving any of these problems, if we are serious about defending the Republic and preserving the blessings of liberty for future generations, then we must lift the gaze, embrace the slow roll of insanity, and recalibrate our strategies according.

We may be facing a hung election and a civil war. We may be facing a manufactured food crisis and widespread famine. We may be facing Disease X and another round of biological warfare. We may be facing WWIII and an impending nuclear catastrophe. We may be facing solar storms, polar shifts, or an alien invasion. Who knows?!

We may not be able to stop any of it—and yet, none of it may ever happen.

Regardless, as with other seductive possibilities, we need to remain focused on what matters most. Be prepared, have a plan, and get engaged. Don’t lose sight of the little things, and don’t think for a second that you can’t have an impact on how this all plays out. I’m fond of the notion that we were each born for this moment, and I believe our generation must rist to challenge of navigating this tumultuous Fourth Turning.

We can win. Our ability to do so rests in our ability to build bridges, win allies, and direct the course of conversation to productive ends.

The future of humanity hangs in the balance.
