THE LIVING ZOMBIES OF THE WESTERN WORLD
A majority in the West have become conscience-free drones
The western mind largely rejects the thought that the elites above them and the society they live in are creating evil. The conditioning to disallow these thoughts has been all-pervasive.
I am not talking of propaganda here, at least not the sort of propaganda we normally recognize as such. It is much more subtle than that.
It exists as much in what is not said than in what is. It exists in every matter-of-fact news broadcast where no mention is made of anything that could remotely be labelled as an evil act by western elites. It exists in the humdrum, the usual as much as it does in the mythology of western heroism, defence of human rights and opposition to the dire acts of untrustworthy foreigners who are ‘not like us’.
Gone are the days when bright flickers of conscience arrived via television sets in the West. Figures such as John Pilger had their place in the mainstream. TV series such as ‘Panorama’ in the UK regularly displayed the sordid underbelly of the West and the illegal acts of its elites.
There was The Guardian newspaper which until a few years ago also boldly pointed out the iniquities of western elites. It is now a right-wing, elitist shadow of its former self.
Not that everyone tuned in to their TVs for a blast of these realities, nor read The Guardian for that either. Most no doubt avoided both like the plague. It isn’t everyone’s 'cup of tea’ to be confronted by disturbing facts which they feel they can do little to nothing about. Though these were the Seventies morphing into the Eighties and activism was reasonably healthy. Where is it now?
My contention is that even the most ardent activists pointing out what western elites are doing have a propensity through the interminable conditioning which has gone on throughout our lives to not fully grasp the enormity of the situation. That westerners live in an essentially evil, deeply irresponsible society, reckless in its selfish desires, ever greedy for more that gives lip service to idealistic impulses while engaging in mass murder and a war against those nations who don’t obey western elites when asked.
The risks involved in getting over-emotional about everything are well known where lives are damaged. Those who speak out do so from a sense of responsibility. If they don't speak out who will? They take the risk of being seen as doom-mongers because they have that type of conscience and consciousness that won’t allow them to ignore injustice and abuse of power.
In a shallow western culture where even the long-lasting and deeply ingrained relationship with socialism of the United Kingdom has all but disappeared most have become geopolitically blind. They were betrayed by those who occupied the business-friendly middle ground of politics and abandoned by those who found themselves to have moved up to a comfortable middle class.
There has been a decade upon decade long conditioning to making westerners adopt an ‘I’m Alright Jack’ mentality where issues of elite right and wrong are not even considered any more. It’s all about a majority of semi-mindless beings addicted to the trough of consuming and uncaring, willing sheep to the abattoir of forgetfulness.
Every once in a while when a regime change target of importance has been identified and a need for public acceptance of violence is required, western emotional buttons will be pressed relentlessly to acquire the requisite consent. Memes aris of children under threat from heartless foreign monsters, women forced into being sterilized, involuntary labour demanded, WMDs threatening from afar, a monstrous, journalist-murdering dictator, chemical weapons use on civilians, schools and hospitals being purposely bombed and so on and so forth. Then western populations are roused temporarily from their torpor and we hear the well-rehearsed refrain: “Something must be done!” Music to the ears of those who played out this familiar tune with its predictable echo from the West’s living zombies.
It’s as predictable as clockwork and where are the mainstream voices who take responsibility by telling people to beware having a stimulus-response reaction? They are absent.
Those purveying the conditioning in these moments are information “scientists” who display these “treats” for their Pavlovian dogs. The voices of warning, such as those like of John Pilger and many others online are as a whisper by comparison.
We swim within a propaganda soup that is so normal and unrecognizable to most that the word propaganda doesn’t fit it... it’s all-pervasive conditioning, it’s inexorable and lies in every calm nuance that insists western societies are perfectly normal, caring and vitally interests in the rights of all you foreigners out there... as we slaughter you in your hundreds of thousands and poison your societies.
Western populations are busy enjoying consumerism, too busy for much else. The elites run the show and it is largely assumed they are ‘doing the right thing’? Western zombies get exorcised only when they might suffer a little from not getting all they want. They moan about politicians and politics yet don’t want much involvement, especially if it interferes with their family life or ‘having a good time’. They will react on cue when their elites point out some foreign iniquity then subside back into semi-contented slumbers when they’ve done their bit and asked their murderous elites to ‘do something about it’.
Then there are the foreign “enemies” of recent times. The demonized ogres who are relentlessly plotting westerners demise and of all the values they know and love, those they are told who are "interfering". How dare they!? This emotion is relentlessly prodded on on a cyclical basis while pointing ‘over there’ where the demons are, inferring of course that westerners are absolute angels by comparison.
Go to sleep America. Go to sleep Britain. “We’ve got this.”
And they, over there, of course, get the pain desired by those endlessly avoiding the inspection of their crimes.
It’s a neat trick if you can pull it off. And western elites usually pull it off each and every time, leaving their people none the wiser. Especially as most western populations are composed of living zombies, wrapped perpetually in cocoons of endless conditioning and consumption that sap most perception of reality and responsibility for others from them.
