Tinfoil Wisdom

Who’s shaking the jar? Somebody has to be shaking it! There has to be some spider in its web and/or some shadowy cabal pulling the strings for their own nefarious ends. Or, so says one variety of common wisdom. A variety I choose to call Tinfoil Wisdom.

With the exception of the Lamestream Media, who shakes things up for their own profit as much as any agenda, there doesn’t have to be any shadowy figure “shaking the jar.” Certain sorts are quite capable of behaving heinously without manipulative instigation. They’re just that bad all on their own.

This is unfortunately the curse of being sentient. We’re built to make use of pattern recognition and, hence, we’re susceptible to false pattern recognition aka Apophenia. We are, as Klaus Conrad wrote, prone to the unmotivated seeing of connections accompanied by a specific feeling of abnormal meaningfulness and to engaging in self-referential, over-interpretations of what we see and hear.

There doesn’t have to be some spider in its web and/or some shadowy cabal pulling the strings for their own nefarious ends. With the ease of communication and the resultant online “echo chambers,” we’re quite capable of producing conflicts organically.

Of course, all that said, that doesn’t mean that sometimes, at some various levels, that there isn’t someone “shaking the jar.” It just means that there doesn’t have to be and that we should jump to the conclusion that there is. Sometimes, probably the majority of times, that “Shaker” didn’t start the shit; they just enabled existing troublemakers in order to profiteer off of them.

Hating In Ignorance

Honestly, when it comes to certain sorts and those who’ve “allied” with them. the only education they seem to have either received or accepted are hatred, fear, envy, sloth, and misplaced entitlement.

What’s worse is that neither I nor anyone that I personally know have any idea of how to salvage these sorts. Every cure is multi-generational and leaves the current and immediately upcoming ones needing to be solved for rather than cured / re-educated.

19 Or 1984?

Not Sure If It's COVID-19 Or COVID-1984
Not Sure If It’s COVID-19 Or COVID-1984

Yep! With all the Lamestream Media’s erratic fear-mongering and the Democrats’ constant attempts to use this outbreak as a means of attacking our President, I’m not sure if this is COVID-19 or COVID-1984.

Really! What does all of their hate- and fear-filled jabbering boil down to other than, “Coronavirus is ungood and anything President Trump does or doesn’t do is doubleplusungood!”

You’all go ahead with craziness and panic buying. I’m old enough to work around your failings. 😆

Apocalyptic Hypocrisy

Dems' Apocalyptic Hypocrisy
Dems’ Apocalyptic Hypocrisy

While Mr. Goodwyn’s cartoon showcases Beto O’Rourke’s particular brand of apocalyptic hypocrisy, it’s a core component of the Leftists’ – Democrats, Liberals, Progressives, Socialists, and Identitarians – entire platform and manifesto. All of them do their best to decry Americans, especially Republicans and specifically President Trump, as engaging entirely in the politics of fear – all while weeping, wailing, and gnashing their teeth about how President Trump will destroy the world. 🙄

But then, we all know that there is no nadir to our domestic enemies’ hypocrisy, especially when it comes to fear. How can there be when the Left and the sorts that they pander to- and enable have weaponized fear long ago and have decided that their fears are the only legitimate ones, with Americans’ fears and/or concerns being signs of their “evil” and “proof” of the validity of the Left’s fears.
