The preceding is echo of my (long since buried) ambition to write books for children. Geopolitical intrigue killed that dream. But perhaps my Victorian era vocabulary would have seen the demise of the ambition after-all; few can read at the level of Washington Irving these days, in a world where ‘literacy’ should be (if we are honest) synonymous with ‘antiquarian.’ People don’t know how to read anymore. That is, if ‘knowing how to read’ should include attention span of more than 1,500 words (the composition limit that can keep the ‘serious’ 21st Century internet reader), ability to absorb & retain, grow observational ability (acquire social intelligence) and not least, improve one’s overall person by building awareness of the culture & world one lives in.

So many things have changed in the past 200, 150, 100 and past 50 years. Time has accelerated exponentially, coupled to cultural decay, ‘sweat equity’ (investment) in learning has been sacrificed to technological developments demand of speed and accompanying stresses which require ‘expediting’ nearly everything; with final effect of imposing instant gratification upon what ‘once upon a time’ were the ‘joys of life’, reflected not only in ‘leisure’ (do people even know what relaxed enjoyment is anymore?) but genuine care taken in superior craftsmanship or work product coupled to personal pride and development. All of this can be linked to personal development.

Ok, so that was was a critical mouthful. But, it DOES sum up the social defect underlying an involuntary post-modern shallowness of today’s lost sheep or those many lemmings following so many geopolitical pied pipers hither & thither, trying to discover what is going on but lacking the critical tools (depth of personal development) to step back and observe accurately. People have been cheated and they should feel cheated.

A result of this is found in a metaphor; today’s alternative news junkies get swept up in cults of personality like the faithful flocking to gurus. The problem here is the West is not anything like Hindu culture or alternatively stated (paraphrasing Carl Jung) these people lack a cultural foundation and cannot practice authentically when seeking ‘news enlightenment.’

These germinating thoughts are result of this blogger (yours truly) noticing ‘political-demographic’ change in readership when taking repeated route away from established narrative that amount to ‘news cults’ that are attracted to read and then driven off when the subject of the inquiry changes. When digging into the Obama fraud, my conservative readership was strong, when I dug into the Trump fraud, there was drop and gain in readers of a different political cult and again when taking on the putrid Biden/Harris fraud, drop and gain, like the roller coaster. But these dips & peaks pale by comparison to the hit in readership when I’d recently turned my sights on Pepe Escobar [1] and Russian propaganda technique & cowardice [2], [3] (as separate entities.) Their readership amounts to cults of personality and their readers are seriously misled whilst noting Escobar produces for two imited hangouts: TomDispatch [4], [5] & The Asia Times notably also hosting intelligence disinformation specialists MK Bhadrakumar [6] & ‘Spengler.’ [7]

This site goes where the evidence leads without political alignment (but with a conservative ethic), and the cosmos has been kind, because Dr David Martin’s (may the gods bless him forever) piece on the covid fraud (reproduced at this site) [8] brought well over 20,000 new visitors to this small blog in a matter of months before the algorithms at duckduckgo search engine were adjusted to bury the article (articles at my site had been buried by the CIA aligned google search for years already.)

And, of course, mixed appreciation is always extended to the spooks who read at this site faithfully; maybe one day, some of them will ‘wake up’ … (noting there are indications some have.)
