Fear and Turmoil: Predictable.
There is only one word powerful enough to describe the effect of recent global fear. Turmoil.
Fear and turmoil walk together. Hand in hand, for the convenience of terrorists fear-mongerers, power-mongerers, devious social manipulators. A new tool. The intimidation of planned fear and turmoil.
In any advanced civilization, there can be no reasonable justification for criminal, planned fear and turmoil. There can be no excuse for the preemptive murder of the innocent. In the news most recently, main-stream media included two of the most unbelievable, sickening, and video-recorded murders of two black men by police officers in separate incidents. The result? Terror. The predictable fear of authority. Intimidation. Stress. Inner turmoil.
That was not enough, apparently, —so the media reported an almost-predictable response; the unbelievable, targeted murder of five police officers, dedicated family men ambushed by an unstable psychopathic lunatic trained by nobody other than the U.S. military. More fear and turmoil. A second incident perpetrated by another U.S. military-trained individual...in Baton Rouge —so where does it stop? When does it stop. Does it stop?
Mass Murder: Fear and Turmoil
The additional recent, shocking and tragic killing of scores of innocent victims in Nice, France by a fringe lunatic terrorist using a heavy truck as a weapon. A killer drove indiscriminately and purposefully into crowds —to kill in cold blood and maim as many people as possible —another example of planned murder, death, fear and turmoil —however tragic. The more recent tragedy in Baton Rouge cost the lives of three police officers —gunned down in cold blood by a black man using an assault rifle and wearing body armour. Seeking revenge. Encouraging revenge. Where does the insanity of revenge stop? In the Middle East, the vicious cycle of planned fear and turmoil never stops.
Planned Fear and Turmoil
Used randomly or planned as recommended by ISIS, it makes little difference; to generate mayhem, fear, and intimidation is the official plan of the perpetrator. Lone wolf, ISIS, Al Qaeda, or independent home-grown lunatics of all stripes and colours, ex-military or not, collectively bearing grudges, perceived or real. Murder, fear and turmoil: the remedy of choice for all ills —in disturbed minds.
The common denominator in these individuals and groups is:
‘Frighten as many people as possible, intimidate, bend everyone to the lunatic agenda, kill everyone who does not agree if necessary to create compliance.’ After all, frightened people are much easier to control.
'Devolution of humanity anyone? Are you a fanatic, an extremist, an unhappy camper, or simply a religious zealot with a pressing ideological agenda? Are you off your meds? Are you in a hurry to ‘fix’ the problem? Simple...will you now go on a rampage? Get your Pokemon GO app instead...and find the Pokemon...'
The magic, ‘solution’ called murder is guaranteed to make anyone’s life worse. Will violence resolve any problem or sway others by killing innocent people? No. Will you be
killed silenced permanently in the process? Quite likely…
With the current state of fear and turmoil now too big to comprehend—and too big to easily remedy, peace is eroding, civilization is devolving; we are becoming increasingly primitive, less tolerable, less tolerant, and nations are becoming unstable.
Mainstream Diet: Violence, Fear and turmoil
With tragic fear and turmoil in the daily mainstream media, the main course in the everyday diet, we increasingly become numb and insensitive to the fact and potential of violence, servitude , loss of freedoms, and the unimaginable, self-annihilation. The vicious ongoing loss of life in the Middle East, the wars in Syria, the proxy war in Ukraine, and the latest purge in Turkey are but examples; life seems to become increasingly worthless. Why? Is life just another ‘electronic’ game for the ‘entertainment’ of mindless self-destructive Lemmings? You decide.
In spite of the fact we create and allow these ‘developments’, it seems certain we will continue to fund, feed and encourage greedy corporate interests, power-control freaks, the greedy rich, industrialist warmongers, charlatans, deceivers, and social manipulators, who will, collectively, continue to create poverty, 3rd world conditions, suitable fear and adequate turmoil —while peasants, the disenfranchised, walk around mindlessly with blank stares... playing Pokemon Go… How appropriate, how convenient, you say… it is "too politically-correct, too hurtful, and no longer necessary to think about anything..."
“We are the Borg. You will be assimilated. Resistance is futile 1 ‘ comes to mind….
We, as eternal optimists, continue to encourage the ‘assimilated’ to think for themselves.
Is that Incoming I hear?
1 ‘We are the Borg. You will be assimilated...etc.’ is an iconic concept borrowed from: Star Trek: The Next Generation”

What they don't tell you, Alice...
Uninformed? What They Don't Tell You
Do you ever get the feeling you are going through life uninformed? Playing catch-up? Suffering from a lack of information? The remediation for being left in the dark and discerning what they don't tell you (for whatever reason)—should be quite simple. Clarify known facts. Recognize and classify observable anomalies and contradictions. Develop alternative models , including an understanding of all relevant facts within reason. Question everything —as advised by Albert Einstein, then draw conclusions and re-question both the effectiveness of the deductive process and the value of the answer. Repeat as necessary...yada yada. Simple? No.
We wish it was simple to accurately discern and discover what they don't tell you, but logic suggests deeper issues may be involved; seemingly insignificant but nagging little white lies of convenience, half-truths, secrets, and fast-growing deceptions...all of which may be selective wool drawn over your eyes, manipulation, coverups, or attempts at avoidance meant to interfere with progress
or mess with your mind.
The Path to Discovery
The path to discovery and enlightenment may be long and arduous enough on the straight and narrow, but with adequate dilly-dallying it seems wide, wandering and easy paths more closely describe the typical status quo. What they don't tell you is that even otherwise intelligent, resourceful people meander, glance this way and that, accepting, adding and even promoting fanciful, constructs of their own in their sketchy attempts to relay information to you, the lost.
A simpler approach should be:
Ask. Discover. Use logic. Deduce. Listen to honest folks only. Follow the straight path to discovery. Truth is just around the corner behind the white picket fence. Let us try, but, alas...gaze down the rabbit-hole, Alice.
With a bird's-eye view you now optimistically dream up the right question. Do facts line up within logic? Was the apparent response honest, or clearly suspect? If so, ask again. Creative liars and miscreants
and crooked politicians become nervous when questioned. Complex webs of creative lies may have already been proffered in a state of panic—a moth-eaten blanket full of holes, further details of deception essential to hide the truth. 'What they don't tell you' may soon become an inescapable quagmire of perpetuated lies and distorted facts. Not simple to remember or escape from, 'half-truths' become essential prompts.
Half-truths: A plague
Interestingly, half-truths, political correctness and 'what they don't tell you' are all signature fallout from the modern degradation of honesty. Our compromised, deceptive but slick world suggests ' a plague of half-truths' and practiced political correct euphemisms are now more acceptable than truth, as long as feel-good 'success', status and wealth are achieved. Half-truths are manipulative tools, twisted fact, deception with intent, and imagined, childish justification —the means to any devious agenda and further decay.
Revelations of societal decay should not surprise; traditional values are ignored; sterling values are increasingly seldom taught, are even less frequently practiced, and now, upon occasion, may no longer even be expected by anyone.
In an observable, vicious cycle, offspring quickly learn lessons of instantaneous gratification as opposed to being carefully required to observe, learn and understand values. What have they not been told? The young may not have been advised that learning, morals, hard work, independent thought, charity, understanding and tolerance are essential. Blind acquiescence to the media, corporate power, greed, and the dark side of human nature with instant gratification are default lessons—at any cost.
What they don't tell you is that we have willfully failed to stem the flow of genuine humanity, wisdom and civility from our veins. We are complicit as we cheer and emulate the 1% and somehow vote for future generations of devious feel-good social manipulators, even the corrupt. In the media, we listen spellbound to insatiable, greedy, thoughtless, powerful, destructive, and short-sighted ideologues posing as potential leaders. What they don't tell you is changing everything for their benefit.
As we know , perfection in humanity is not possible, nor is it simple. We get that. But why? What they don't tell you, Alice...may also be the ultimate answer you seek...
Is it any surprise they don't tell you to think for yourself?
