The Top 8 “Conspiracy Theories” That Are Turning Out To Be True

Published

on

Conspiracy Theory: It’s a term used by many to brush off something that clashes with what they believe in, or have believed in, for a long period of time. Taking in new information that runs counter to a current belief system is not easy and can result in cognitive dissonance — a term used in modern psychology to describe the feeling of discomfort that arises from being confronted with two or more conflicting ideas, beliefs, or values. It suggests that we have an inner drive to hold on to all of our beliefs and attitudes, avoiding the feelings of discomfort and instability that accompany new ideas, regardless of whether those ideas are backed by evidence and sound logic.

Why do we always believe, without consideration, what is presented to us through mainstream sources? Why do we hold it to be true, without question? Why is it so common for many of us to not even acknowledge, listen, or look at evidence that runs counter to the accepted ideology? To ignore available information that presents an alternative to what is so commonly believed by many, or what we ourselves believe can place the human race in a very vulnerable state? Even if there is an overwhelming amount of evidence, many find alternative ideas easy to dismiss.

Below is a list of events and phenomena that are or have been considered “conspiracy theories” by the general population, all of which can be backed up by an impressive amount of research and testimonies from experts in their respective fields.

It’s unfortunate that our world has been riddled with lies, misinformation, and fraud. It’s no secret that if you tell a lie long enough, it becomes the truth.

“Condemnation without investigation is the height of ignorance.”

These are in no particular order, as they are all significant in their own right.

The Black Budget 

Prior to Edward Snowden (the former NSA employee who leaked classified information), if you told somebody you thought there existed what seems to be a separate civilization — a part of humanity that broke off in secret, and is thousands, if not millions, of years more advanced than the mainstream academic/scientific/technical world — there is absolutely no doubt you would have been brushed off as a crazy conspiracy theorist.

But when Snowden leaked the very first documentation proving the existence of clandestine black budget operations, that all changed. Despite these recent leaks, many are still unaware of the black budget world, and the fact that it had been investigated and talked about before these leaks.

We have published an article that goes in-depth and is well sourced regarding this topic. You can read that article HERE.

“In the councils of government, we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military industrial complex.  The potential for a disastrous rise of misplaced power exists, and will persist. Only an alert and knowledgeable citizenry, can compel the proper meshing of the huge industrial and military machinery of defence, with our peaceful message and goals.”

–  Dwight Eisenhower, former Five Star General and President of the United States (source)

9/11

The tragedy that unfolded on September 11th, 2001 was horrific. To this day and despite the fact that many of the victims’ families themselves question the events of that day, many still consider anyone suspicious of 9/11 to be a conspiracy theorist. It’s important to mention that the mainstream media has played a large part in pushing this idea, that anybody who questions what happened on that day is “nuts.”

According to the latest polls, more than 150 million people in America do not believe the official explanation given to them by their government when it comes to 9/11, and the same amount actually suspect a controlled demolition of World Trade Centre building  7. Think about that for a moment. (A simple Google search will show you a number of polls that have taken place over the years.)

There is a tremendous amount of evidence to support all of these claims, and others, like the fact that the supposed “Al-Qaeda” terrorist group was in fact a creation of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA). And yet, many people have a hard time hearing about, let alone thinking about, these realities.

We’ve written about this topic in detail, and you can check out some of these articles for more information to see why the questioning of 9/11 is far from a conspiracy theory, by clicking HERE.

Unidentified Flying Objects (UFOs)

As with 9/11, in the United States alone, at least half of all Americans say that we’re not alone in the universe. Fifty percent of Americans already believe that there is some form of life on other planets, while only 17% think that there is not. A quarter of Americans believe that intelligent extraterrestrial visitors have already come to Earth and have been doing so for a long time. (Source in article linked below.)

Why do people believe this? The answer is simple. As former Princeton professor and NASA astronaut Dr. Brian O’Leary remarked, “there is abundant evidence” (source) clearly indicating that there is something going on in our atmosphere and around our planet which, as Director of Operations for Bigelow Aerospace Mike Gold puts it, deserves serious attention. (source)

The evidence comes in the form of statements made by high ranking military and political personnel, academicians, and more. It also comes in the form of official documents released by dozens of countries officially acknowledging and disclosing the existence of UFOs.

Geo-Engineering and Solar Radiation Management Via Stratospheric Spraying

Also known as “chemtrails,” the idea of injecting stratospheric particles into the atmosphere to combat the effects of climate change is very real.

Dr. Matthew Watson, PhD, a researcher in the Department of Earth Sciences at the University of Bristol, is one of many scientists who are warning against this practice.

“If we ever deploy these technologies it will be the closest indication yet that we’ve failed as planetary stewards. While it is clear that temperatures could be reduced during deployment, the misstep is considerable. Personally, this stuff terrifies me.”

– Dr. Watson

(You can read more about that HERE.)

This idea is far from a conspiracy theory,

Some of the candidate particles to spray in the air are:

  • Sulphate/Sulphuric Acid/Sulphur Dioxide
  • Titanium dioxide
  • Silicon Carbide
  • Calcium Carbonate
  • Alumina
  • Silica
  • Zinc Oxide

But are these programs operational? Well, the weather was modified using these techniques for the Olympic games in China, and if you are an observer of skies and a researcher of geo-engineering, you’ll know that there is a sufficent amount of evidence to suggest that spraying is already occuring.

“In recent years there has been a decline in the support for weather modification research, and a tendency to move directly into operational projects.”

–  World Meteorological Association (source)

With all of the information available in the public domain, it’s clear that this topic deservers our utmost attention. Yet there is still a harsh resistance by the mainstream, who often ridicule this topic, despite all of the information that is out there.

A Small Group of Elite People and the Corporations They Run Own Everything

Not that long ago, if you were to tell anyone that a small group of people and the corporations they run controlled all the world’s resources, you would have received some decidedly ‘weird’ looks. Fortunately, thanks to recent global protests like the Occupy Wall Street Movement, more people have become aware of what is known as the “one percent.” That percentage represents the people who have access to the most wealth on the planet.

The same group of elite are in control of our health, finances, education, food, politics, media, and financial industries, and they contribute to the military industrial complex. It’s clear that there are many problems within these industries that affect us on a daily basis.

This was also demonstrated by three systems theorists at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich. They published a study titled “The Network Of Global Corporate Control” about a relatively small group of companies, mainly banks, with disproportionate power over the global economy. (source)

Here is a great clip that relates to this topic by Foster Gamble, taken from the Thrive documentary.

Water Fluoridation

There is a reason why so many countries and communities around the world have recently stopped the practice of putting fluoride into their drinking water.

We are not talking about naturally occurring fluoride that is already found in water; we are talking about hydrofluorosilicic acid, a toxic industrial waste by-product that governments have been adding to our drinking water for over sixty years.

“If this stuff gets out into the air, it’s a pollutant; if it gets into the river, it’s a pollutant; if it gets into the lake, it’s a pollutant; but if it goes right straight into your drinking water system, it’s not a pollutant. That’s amazing.” (source) 

– Former VP and Senior Chemist at the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Headquarters

In fact, one of the most credible medical journals in the world recently classified it as a neurotoxin. You can read more about that here.

“In point of fact, fluoride causes more human cancer deaths than any other chemical. When you have power you don’t have to tell the truth. That’s a rule that’s been working in this world for generations. There are a great many people who don’t tell the truth when they are in power in administrative positions. Fluoride amounts to public murder on a grand scale. It is some of the most conclusive scientific and biological evidence that I have come across in my 50 years in the field of cancer research.” (source) 

– Dr. Dean Burk, biochemist, Founder of Biotin, and former Chief Chemist at the National Cancer Institute of Health

We have written about this topic extensively. You can read more articles regarding water fluoridation HERE

Here is a documentary we made about the subject:

Over-Unity Energy

Despite many people opposing this idea, constantly citing the law of conservation of energy, multiple papers have been published in various peer reviewed journals showing that yes, extracting energy from the vacuum is possible. You can find these in the articles linked below.

“The concept that efficiencies cannot be greater than 100% is due to an incomplete understanding of the properties of space. The second law of thermodynamics must be modified to account for the fact that space is not empty, as has been taught for the last 150 years.”

– Toby Grotz, engineer and researcher of new energy technologies since 1973

Collective Evolution has been lucky enough to have been covering a story, and working with Toby Grotz and Paramahamsa Tewari, to help create more awareness about this. Tewari has invented an over-unity machine. We have assisted them in building the website and we are extrememly honoured to help spread the word: tewari.org 

We encourage all those who are reading this to check it out.

Do you really think that these brilliant scientists and engineers would devote their entire lives to something that did not show potential, or something that is not real? This concept is, again, still faced with fierce resistance, but this will all change, and for the sake of the planet it has to, so stay tuned!

You can view pictures of the machine at the site above. It won’t be long until we are showing you a video of it ourselves.

Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs)

Few things exemplify more absolutely the fact that we are living in a world of deception, manipulation, and fraudulent science than GMOs. Over the past few years, a number of studies (both independent and peer-reviewed) have emerged that clearly outline why GMOs should not be approved as completely safe for human consumption. Despite this fact, their status has not changed.

The truth of their danger was also demonstrated by the March Against Monsanto, a worldwide protest where millions of people around the world gather every year to peacefully protest the biotech giants.

There is a reason why so many countries around the world have now completely banned GMOs and the pesticides that go with them.

“As part of the process, they portrayed the various concerns as merely the ignorant opinions of misinformed individuals – and derided them as not only unscientific, but anti-science. They then set to work to convince the public and government officials, through the dissemination of false information, that there was an overwhelming expert consensus, based on solid evidence, that GMOs were safe.”

Is Saudi Journalist’s Disappearance & Allegations Of Murder A ‘White’ False Flag?

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    US-based Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi walked into the Saudi consulate in Istanbul on October 2 and never came out. Turkish sources claim to have audio and video evidence that Khashoggi was murdered, and Saudi officials deny the claim.

  • Reflect On:

    Can we start to see beyond the perceptions being created by players in the geopolitical arena? What will it take for deception to end and truth to reign in our world?

US-based Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi, a well-known critic of Saudi Arabia and its leadership, went missing in Turkey on October 2. He entered Saudi Arabia’s consulate in Istanbul around 1 pm to obtain a document certifying he divorced his ex-wife. He has not been seen since.

The former editor of Saudi newspaper Al Watan fled the kingdom last year fearing for his safety amid a wide-scale crackdown on dissidents. He had become a frequent contributor to The Washington Post and continued to critique Saudi Arabia from the safety of the U.S., often raising concerns about the war in Yemen as well as diplomatic tensions with Qatar.

There is video evidence widely circulating that show Khashoggi entering the consulate in Istanbul. One would think that if it existed, video evidence showing him exiting the building would be just as accessible, but none has been forthcoming.

Claims Of Proof

US and Turkish officials have now been quoted as saying they have proof that Khashoggi was killed inside the Saudi consulate in Istanbul in what Turkish sources describe as “premeditated murder”.

Sources told Al Jazeera that a delegation of 15 Saudi officials arrived in Turkey the day Khashoggi, 59, disappeared. “The Saudi officials flew into Istanbul on two different flights on Tuesday,” the sources said. There is video that has been put out in the public by Turkish officials piecing together the movement of this Saudi team while in Turkey that traces their involvement.

However, the most damaging evidence has not been released to the public. It allegedly consists of audio and video recordings from inside the embassy that implicate this Saudi team in Khashoggi’s murder. As reported in this Washington Post article,

advertisement - learn more

The recordings show that a Saudi security team detained Khashoggi in the consulate after he walked in Oct. 2 to obtain an official document before his upcoming wedding, then killed him and dismembered his body, the officials said. The audio recording in particular provides some of the most persuasive and gruesome evidence that the Saudi team is responsible for Khashoggi’s death, the officials said.

“The voice recording from inside the embassy lays out what happened to Jamal after he entered,” said one person with knowledge of the recording who, like others, spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss highly sensitive intelligence. “You can hear his voice and the voices of men speaking Arabic,” this person said. “You can hear how he was interrogated, tortured and then murdered.” A second person briefed on the recording said men could be heard beating Khashoggi.

Why Is The Evidence Not Made Public?

Apparently, Turkish officials are wary of releasing the recordings, fearing they could divulge how the Turks spy on foreign entities in their country, according to those same officials. It’s not clear that U.S. officials have seen the footage or listened to the audio, but Turkish officials have described their contents to their American counterparts.

Saudi officials have denied any involvement in the disappearance of Khashoggi, saying he left the consulate shortly after entering. Again, video evidence of him leaving the consulate should be as easy to obtain as the video of him entering, if this was true. This sentiment was echoed by Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan earlier on. Certainly, video of Khashoggi’s fiancee waiting outside the embassy for him, and her testimony that he never came out, doesn’t help matters for the Saudis. This seems to be an iron-clad case.

Key word: seems.

Could This Be A False Flag?

Bear with me here, because this is just speculation. But I believe it is worth considering.

As in previous articles such as ‘Russia Exposes Deep State Tactics Ahead Of Impending Syria False Flag Chemical Attack,’ my instincts about false flags start with the question of the motivation for the act perpetrated:

When I do have conversations with people about Syria or other false flag scenarios, I don’t get much into the hard evidence that makes me believe these chemical weapons attacks are staged events. I talk more about the motivation. I ask the question that if Bashar Al-Assad, President of Syria and commander-in-chief of the Syrian Armed Forces since 2000, seems to be winning the battle against rebels in his country who seek to remove him from power, then what could possibly be his motivation for authorizing chemical weapons attacks against his citizens, which ends up harming and killing innocent children? Surely he realizes this would not only bring the wrath of the international community but also a complete breakdown in the support of his own people?

In the case of Khashoggi, we have to ask about the motivation that Prince Mohammed Bin Salman and the Saudi regime would have in killing the dissident journalist in the fashion they did. Yes, it could certainly be argued that the Saudi regime may have wanted him dead, and certainly Western media has been providing evidence to this effect. However, one has to ask if this powerful regime would ever want to do things in this way, in a way that CLEARLY implicates them directly in the disappearance of Khashoggi, and brings upon them a totality of unwanted scorn and contempt from the international community at large. Why unwanted? There are at least 3 reasons:

1. Image

Saudi Arabia under Prince Mohammed Bin Salman has at least been trying to present an image of a country in the process of implementing economic and human rights reforms. The idea that Saudi Arabia would go so far out of its way to kill a dissenting voice that was not even in the country tears this new image to shreds.

2. Business

Saudi Arabia has a lot riding on their growing business partnerships and the continued work through the upcoming ‘Davos in the Desert’ conference in Riyadh. British billionaire Richard Branson summed up the impact these murder allegations could have: “I had high hopes for the current government and its leader Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman. What has reportedly happened in Turkey…if proved true, would clearly change the ability of any of us in the West to do business with the Saudi government.”

3. Military Protection

Saudi Arabia wants to maintain good relations with the US, in order to continue the military protection they have enjoyed for the past several decades. Donald Trump has hinted that this arrangement could be severely impacted if it turns out that Khashoggi was murdered by Saudi Arabia.

Clearly, a plan as elaborate as this one to kill Jamal Khashoggi in an embassy in a foreign country would have required plenty of thought, and surely some of the thought would concern the impact of such a transparent plan on Saudi Arabia’s standing with the rest of the world, an impact, as noted in the previous section, that would be wholly negative for the Saudi Kingdom. That’s the part that doesn’t make sense.

Motivation For The Other Side

And so let’s consider the ‘other’ side of this situation, which I will define here as the Alliance affiliated with the Trump administration intent on taking down the Deep State, as discussed in the recent article ‘Many Insiders Believe Military Tribunals For Deep State Will Happen Any Time Now.‘ If we could be so bold and presumptuous as to believe that this Alliance is as perfectly willing and able to commit false flag operations as the Deep State has done throughout history, the question of motivation starts to take shape.

Having no access to insider information this is broad speculation on my part, but given that Saudi Arabia is considered by many commentators to be one of the few remaining Deep-State controlled nations (along with Israel and a few others), then attempting to negatively impact the status, financial stability and military protection of Saudi Arabia would seem high on the Alliance wish list.

The bullet-proof narrative that has been created here, and the clear, conclusive evidence that is being put out to the public (or withheld, for strategic reasons) seems perfectly designed to cause a significant hit to the reputation of Saudi Arabia in all forums of world opinion.  And Saudi Arabia clearly seems to have been caught off guard, unable to offer much resistance to the evidence other than complete denial of the prevailing narrative.

Could the Alliance have pulled this off in concert with newly-compliant ally Turkey and Khashoggi himself? Sure. Arrangements could have been made with allies planted inside the Saudi Embassy in Turkey to escort Khashoggi back out of the embassy clandestinely, into some witness-protection type arrangement; perhaps his fiancee is not his true fiancee, and participated in this in order for him to have a credible reason to enter the embassy–seeking divorce papers so he could then marry her. The video and audio ‘evidence’ that is being talked about could have been role-played and recorded in advance. Footage of the Saudi nationals flying into Turkey could also have been staged. No part of this kind of plan, which could have been hatched when Khashoggi became a US resident, would have been materially difficult to pull off.

If this was a false flag, Saudi Arabia would certainly know it. But in a way, it wouldn’t matter. There would be no way for Saudi Arabia to change the perception that has been created, and politics is all about perception. The negative image that has been foisted upon Saudi Arabia gives the Alliance and the Trump administration leverage in dealing with Saudi Arabia politically, economically, and militarily. When Donald Trump talks about Saudi Arabia, his calm, slow-playing posture makes him appear to be a man who suddenly has a lot of leverage.

The Takeaway

What I have proposed here is just a theory, but at the very least it is an attempt to discern the hidden motivations behind an event that is playing out in the political arena. The very reason that geopolitical theatre continues to be acted out in front of us, featuring deception, lies, false flags, and so on, is that these tricks have worked for so long to create their desired perception.

Our collective discernment thus becomes very important here. The more we question and investigate stories that don’t quite make sense, and the better we become at seeing through these schemes designed to get us to go along with certain political agendas, the less we will have to deal with it. Eventually, as our consciousness grows, all lies and deception will become transparent to us, and the truth will reign.

Catholic Church Ignores Pedophilia, But Bishop Warns Reiki & Energy Healing Are Satanic

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Catholic Bishop Alphonsus Cullinan has said he is establishing a "delivery ministry" that will attempt to rid people of the devil and warned that using reiki or other new-age healing methods could open one up to demonic influence.

  • Reflect On:

    Can these types of fear-based attempts to retain power over people serve the greater awakening to our innate power and sovereignty?

It is wisely said that, ‘you should clean up your own backyard first before you come running over to fix mine.’ Obviously, this wisdom continues to be lost on the clergy of the Catholic Church.

According to this Irish News article, Catholic Bishop Alphonsus Cullinan has said he is establishing a “delivery ministry” of people who will attempt to rid others of the devil and warned that using reiki or other new-age healing methods could open one up to the possibility of encountering malevolent spirits. He said he had received “several requests” from people to help deal with evil forces.

On the strength of what spellbinding evidence and research does the bishop rest his indictment against reiki healing treatments on? He said he was told by the brother of a reiki master that the man was “working on somebody one day when he actually says he saw a vision of Satan” and was “scared out of his wits, dropped the reiki and went back to the Church”.

Gosh. Did Bishop Cullinan even go so far as to interview the reiki master himself, to verify the authenticity of the report, and perhaps inform himself just a touch more about the philosophy and practice of reiki, before giving it such firm identification with the dark side?

Heavens, no.

“This is something that has to be done in secret because you don’t let these people’s names out, and they are going to houses where people maybe have been involved in some kind of new-age thing or some kind of séance or that kind of thing, and unfortunately, they’ve opened up a door to an evil force, Satan.” Bishop Alphonsus Cullinan

Absolving Personal Responsibility

Let’s be clear on what the good bishop is saying here: he is worried about people getting influenced by Satan while engaging in ‘new-age’ healing practices.  (In fact, he misidentifies reiki as a ‘new age’ practice when in fact it was developed in the early 1900’s in Japan by Mikao Usui, who realized that healing energy can be transmitted between human beings via the hands and directed intention and visualization.) Does he say what the consequences might be if people fall deeply enough under Satan’s spell under these conditions? Will they suddenly be tempted to steal an apple from the grocery store? Say a crossword to a neighbor? He doesn’t know. And doesn’t say. And probably hasn’t even thought that far.

No, what it really looks like is that the good bishop would like to stop people who are taking personal responsibility for their own healing, and play the devil card to encourage such people to run back to the Catholic Church where members don’t actually have to take responsibility for their own actions–they can simply believe the devil made them do it. This is a scenario in which the good bishop can feel useful in an advisory capacity because he has the God-given power to absolve participants of their sins with the recitation of a few ‘Hail Mary’s.

Why Not Address In-House Pedophilia?

You would think, if indeed you believe Cullinan is being sincere, that he would not be sticking his nose into something he knows little about, and instead bring his Satan-fighting attention to the actions of his Catholic brethren who are already known to be raping and torturing children. You would think it would be of the highest order to turn his exorcising powers to work on these contemporaries of his, if for nothing else than to try to resurrect the reputation of the Catholic Church which has fallen to unprecedented depths.

But you get the feeling that his attitude falls in line with the Church on the matter of pedophilia in the church. Their inaction seems to indicate that they feel not much can be done about it. It is not a question of personal responsibility, it is a question of demonic possession. In the article, Cullinan said he “absolutely” agreed with Pope Francis’s view that child abuse is caused by Satan. Which means offenders themselves are not to ‘blame’ for their actions. The church’s propensity to take offenders of these violent crimes and simply move them away from one outraged community to continue their criminal activity in another one is a clear sign of this.

The Takeaway

This bishop certainly has gall to act concerned about potential demonic influence coming from modern energy healing practices he knows nothing about. The good news is, the hypocrisy of the Catholic Church continues to reveal itself in these feeble attempts to retain power over people, and they could serve as a catalyst for more people who still give themselves over to these institutions to take their power back.

After Social Media Purges Independent News Sites, Ben Swann Announces ‘Isegoria’

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    October 11th, Facebook silently deleted dozens of independent media pages for what they claimed to be "inauthentic activity." That same day, ex-CBS anchor and "Reality Check" host, Ben Swann announced a new blockchain media platform called Isegoria.

  • Reflect On:

    What's the true reason behind this purge of independent media? Is this purge a violation of free speech and the Constitution of the United States itself? Is Isegoria laying the foundation for how independent media can survive this all out purge?

“When you tear out a man’s tongue, you are not proving him a liar, you’re only telling the world that you fear what he might say.” ~ Tyrion Lannister

The media circus we’ve been witnessing lately has only exacerbated the political rabble-rousing and created an even larger divide between the right and left, leaving those in the middle wondering how we got into this mess in the first place.

For anyone who has watched any of Ben Swann’s Reality Check episodes over the past few years, you know that his agenda is simple: present facts without any expression of his own views or opinions.

At the end of every Reality Check, Ben would always finish with a statement or question that encompasses the entire segment and would finish by saying “That’s a reality check, let’s talk about that right now on social media.” He has a knack for allowing the free thought process to percolate in his viewers’ minds and opens a platform for conscious debate instead of giving an opinion or pushing his own beliefs or an agenda on his viewers. It’s no secret that most of the mainstream media has been lacking in this skill-set for quite some time, hence the inevitable rise of Isegoria.

What Exactly Is Isegoria?

Note: The below summary, mission and problem is taken directly from the website www.Isegoria.com

Spearheaded by multi-award winning investigative journalist Ben Swann, whose social following is nearing 1 million subscribers. Mr. Swann has created content that has reached hundreds of millions of viewers. Isegoria will be a collaboration of independent journalists and entertainers.

Isegoria will have two parts: Part 1 is the 24 hour streaming platform and Part 2 is the treasury that funds independent creators. There is an illusion of a free marketplace for ideas and debate in American and Global Media, when in fact powerful platforms are deciding which thoughts, ideas and messages the public will be allowed to hear, discuss and debate.

Isegoria’s Mission: To create an uncensored, blockchain-based, decentralized news and entertainment platform with a funding mechanism for independent media.

The Problem: Independent media is being purged from social media platforms at an alarming rate. Facebook has been banning pages with millions of fans and followers for no stated reason. Twitter has already been shadow banning content creators for years but is now outright banning dissenting voices from its platform. YouTube is deleting channels without warning on a regular basis.

Meanwhile, mainstream media is becoming increasingly consolidated and centralized. In the 1990s, around 50 corporations owned all the media in the US, whereas now only 6 corporations control 90% of all media in the United States. There is an illusion of a free marketplace for ideas and debate in American and Global Media, when in fact powerful platforms are deciding which thoughts, ideas and messages the public will be allowed to hear, discuss and debate.

So, what do we need to prepare ourselves for the ongoing consciousness wars? We must be vigilant. We must have integrity. We must shine light on those who speak the truth. And we must never forget George Orwell’s warning: Freedom is the right to tell people what they do not want to hear.
