There are no coincidences in politics; there are only people who recognize them, and people who do not.
Yesterday, the biggest fraudulent and heavily managed autocrat in modern American political history gave instructions to his fellow travelers in Big Tech, and I quote:
“I make a special appeal to social media companies and media outlets: Please deal with the misinformation and disinformation that’s on your shows. It has to stop.” ~ Joe Biden
Today, they begin responding:
Some may see this as coincidental timing (you would be amazed at the number of people willfully blind to how the system of controlled communication works in the modern era); for the rest of us who accept things as they are – not as we need to pretend them to be, we can see the patterns as they develop. We are engaged in information warfare.
Another important example from today is highlighted below.
(Via Washington Post) A coalition of hundreds of doctors and public health experts have called out Spotify for allowing Joe Rogan to spread “false and societally harmful assertions” about the coronavirus and vaccination on the streaming platform that hosts his wildly popular podcast.
In an open letter published Monday, more than 270 medical professionals urge Spotify to stop “enabling its hosted media to damage public trust in scientific research and sow doubt in the credibility of data-driven guidance.” Rogan, whose show reaches an estimated audience of 11 million people an episode, has repeatedly downplayed the need for coronavirus vaccines and used his platform to flirt with misinformation about covid-19.
“Though Spotify has a responsibility to mitigate the spread of misinformation on its platform, the company presently has no misinformation policy,” the group wrote in the letter, which was first reported by Rolling Stone this week. “Throughout the covid-19 pandemic, Joe Rogan has repeatedly spread misleading and false claims on his podcast, provoking distrust in science and medicine.” (read more)
♦ “History may not always repeat, but it rhymes.” The United States in 2022 is Poland in the early 1980’s under Soviet influence. We the citizens are engaged in an information war against our own government. The difference between then and now is Big Tech and the communications platforms that have been infiltrated by communist agents.
The battle is the same, the battlefield is what’s different.
We are in an abusive relationship with our government.
Accept the nature of the relationship and modify your behavior and communication strategies accordingly.
Know what targeting methods the enemy uses; then, seek to develop strategies that are invisible to the oppressor.
Think like an insurgent.
Put another way,… if the pod under your bed malfunctioned, but the pods under all the other beds in the city worked, what happens when you awaken and realize you are not one of them, but you must engage in the world of them while looking for others -like yourself- whose pods hopefully malfunctioned?
This is the challenge for communication in 2022.
This is what you need to think about as you become a force multiplier.
Eyes of a mouse, ears of an elephant.
