World War 3 is upon us. Earlier this week, Germany sent thirty Leopard Tanks to Ukraine to assist in their war effort against Russia. Soon afterwards, Canada sent four Leopard Tanks of their own.
The drumbeats of war have commenced – something most Trump supporters warned of as soon as Biden took office.
A NOT-SO-FRINGE NARRATIVE
In five years, chances are we’ll look back at this as a flashpoint moment, the proverbial calm before the storm. The common thread by mainstream media paints Vladimir Putin as an autocratic tyrant motivated by conquest. I am not pro-Russia, nor am I foolish to believe Putin is beyond reproach. However, I recognize anytime the world pushes a single narrative, there are things in play not discernible at surface level.
At the outset of this war, Ukraine flags appeared on countless porches in my suburban town. Either Andover was a haven for Ukrainians unbeknownst to me, or it was another case of the hive-mind phenomenon that happens when people devour information from one media outlet.
Consequently, it is always prudent to seek information from various sources. This enables a well-rounded view of any issue. Of late, one theory that has surfaced postulates the Slavic conflict is a distraction from the aftereffects of Covid-19. This camp cites the public’s growing realization that the pandemic was not as originally advertised as the driving force behind the war.
The virus did not originate in a Wuhan fish market as advertised. A Chinese laboratory backed by Barrack Obama created it [gain-of-function].
NOTHING TO SEE HERE
The constant media coverage of the war is to keep us from discussing the increasing number of deaths of individuals with no outlying health conditions [query the unprecedented number of athletes throughout the world who’ve experienced heart failure].
Double-vaxxed individuals with boosters still report contracting the coronavirus. When these vaccines were first rolled out, talking heads and experts assured us that vaccines were the failproof answer.
You may be asking why anyone would concoct a virus with the intent to bring the world to a screeching halt. Fair question.
DETACHMENT IS KEY
I implore you to remove emotional connections or biases you hold pertaining to this, or any, issue.
Look at events as though an Alien visiting Earth for the first time. Grab a pen and paper and document the subsequent happenings to any story pumped out by the media. The benefit of this stream of conscious exercise is invaluable. Empirical observation void of emotion can illuminate truths that could otherwise be missed due to emotionality.
With respect to Covid-19, who benefited?
What changed in your daily life that you may have initially overlooked due to hysteria and fear?
Again, the key is to consciously remove emotional ties to the issue. By doing so, you tend to see things for how they really are and avoid the perils of confirmation bias [the tendency to process information by looking for, or interpreting, information that is consistent with one’s existing beliefs].
Now that enough time has passed since the onset of the virus, we are beginning to see its ramifications.
Small businesses were crushed; Big Box Stores flourished. Divorce rates skyrocketed. The mental health of the most vulnerable members of society – our youth and elderly respectively – incurred immeasurable damage. Violence in red and blue cities spiked throughout the Union. What better way to muddle such findings than to create a war? [see: ‘Wag the Dog’, 1997 as an example]
Russia’s depiction as the aggressor is constant. A trip on a social media platform like Twitter proves as much. Anyone questioning America’s financial support of Ukraine finds hate and vitriol spewed at them. In 2023, free thought only exists if one’s attitudes align with what Liberals deem acceptable.
TIME Magazine celebrates Volodymyr Zelenskyy as their ‘person of the year’. LOL. Zelenskyy is heralded as a hero for his defiance of ‘Russian terrorists’.
Notice the words they use to shape your attitudes, thoughts, and views pertaining to the issue. A man whose previous job was that of an actor and comedian is now the toast of the world. The irony runs thick. In fact, some would say they’re laughing at our expense.
I am not for war-mongering, nor do I believe Russia is innocent. However, why do we stick up for Ukraine and send them endless support while turning our eyes away from other conflicts throughout the world?
Azerbaijan’s aggression toward Armenia; the Saudis’ attack on Yemen; why does the West say nothing about such conflicts? Why does the mainstream media avoid reporting on them?
The answer is simple; America, and the media by proxy, pick and choose which conflicts to champion. The war in Ukraine has little to do with defending democracy and human rights. Anyone who believes so is naive and willfully ignorant.
Make no mistake; our involvement in the Ukraine-Russia war has everything to do with politics and money. Any issue pumped out by those in power always comes down to capital gain. It’s like the old saying goes; follow the money… and you’ll find the truth. Every. Single. Time.
Update: Drone attacks are said to be hitting Tehran as we speak. Now, tell me again how WW3 isn’t upon us.
