In January 2016, I clicked on a link to the documentary, September 11 – The New Pearl Harbor in the list of ‘related videos’ list on YouTube. The scales fell from my eyes. It all seemed so obvious. It wasn’t as if the perpetrators had done a good job of hiding the fact that it was “an inside job.” I felt that even a cursory examination of the evidence would be enough to show that we were lied to. So the only way I could have gone nearly 15 years without realizing it was simply by ignoring it or telling myself “it couldn’t be.” I decided that I would never again allow myself to ignore or reject any theory on the basis of plausibility. I swore to myself that I would pursue the evidence for any idea or any theory, no matter how absurd it seemed.

I was thrust into a couple of months of intense reading up on many different conspiracy theories, trying to sort fact from fiction. I’m still at it. And although I don’t intend to retrace these discoveries in great depth, as time goes on I hope to fill out parts of the blog with links on relevant subjects.

I’ve come to the conclusion, mainly thanks to others’ research, that much of what we see on TV or read in the newspapers is fake and manufactured. We’re being manipulated and duped on a grand, almost unimaginable scale. Our thoughts and passions are being molded and orchestrated. It’s sort of like in the Matrix movies, except that instead of a computer simulation, our Matrix has been created by a group of living, breathing human beings using mass media as their primary tool. Waking up to this realization was psychologically difficult at first. A bona fide ontological rupture. But I would not trade my newfound perspective for anything. I’m wide awake inside the Matrix, and I’m not going back to sleep.

So much of the world we think we live in is a sham, a conjob. But it’s not just mainstream or “consensus” reality: many if not most of the conspiracies we read about are either fake or filled with false leads and misdirection. Punching through consensus reality does not lead directly to the truth. Waiting for us on the other side of that membrane is a dizzying and disorienting fog of disinformation and misdirection. The mainstream lies are themselves wrapped inside of lies, inside of lies, inside of lies, inside of lies…

The Powers That Be do not want anyone to discover the truth about how this world works, and so they cover everything in a thick, suffocating layer of fog so it is nearly impossible for us to find our way to the truth. Will we ever reach it? I don’t know. All I know is that we can try to cut through the fog, a little bit at a time. That’s why I started this blog.
