‘The world is a stage’, the saying goes.

Lately, I’ve been more acutely aware of something that had been prodding at my mind for a while: but that I hadn’t quite put my finger on properly. Specifically, the idea that a fake or ‘scripted’ reality is playing out all over the place – and that this scripted ‘reality’ is populated by actors merely playing parts.

In short, what I’m asking here is ‘are we now stuck in a reality TV show’? Is our collective consciousness being reconfigured into a reality-tv format?

In fact, I’ve been trying to write an article on a broader subject (Scripted Reality) for some time now – and have as-yet declined to publish it, because I can’t quite get my thoughts together coherently.

But watching the frankly weird spectacle of millionaire rap star Kanye West and millionaire US President Donald Trump in the White House rather powerfully triggered me back to this subject. I want to talk about Kanye West and also the ‘Kardashians’ (I’m so sorry) and where they came from: and why this is all so weird (and why it has troubling implications).

In doing so, I also want to talk about the very nature of ‘truth’, ‘reality’ and perception – and what the term ‘post-truth’ might actually end up meaning.

For starters, the footage of the eccentric rapper’s staged twenty-minute conversation with the President strikes me as one of the most bizarre moments so far of the Donald Trump presidency and its accompanying reality-TV freak-show (click on the image to go see the video, if you haven’t seen it already).

And it again forces me to ask whether this all is a reality TV show now – albeit, one that’s been transplanted (with the help of both the media and the ‘viewing public’) onto a broader perception of ‘reality’ with far bigger implications for society, intelligence levels, general perception and collective consciosuness.

In the sixth Star Trek  film, The Undiscovered Country, Ambassador Spock tells Captain Kirk, “There’s an old Vulcan saying – only Nixon could go to China.”

The line was supposed to be tongue-in-cheek, suggesting that Nixon going to China was so symbolically significant that it had even become a saying among an alien race centuries in the future.

The Nixon-going-to-China reference has also been cited a bunch of times in recent days, since it has been announced that Donald Trump appears to have accepted North Korea’s invitation for the US President to attend a talk with Kim Jong-un. The seemingly sudden onset of diplomacy and de-escalation seems to have caught most commentators off-guard.

It seems, on the surface, to be a positive development, with the historic meeting tentatively scheduled for May. (more…)

Just an add-on here to some of what I was talking about yesterday.
The more I look at the entire paradigm, the stranger it gets and the more I wonder if we’re trapped in a kind of weird reality TV show.

I use the term ‘reality TV show’ not just because the US President is a former reality TV star; but because the term ‘reality TV’ doesn’t, strictly speaking, denote a ‘fake’ reality, but a kind of staged production that nevertheless purports to be showing us a true reality (even though, in many cases, a reality TV show isn’t showing us a true reality at all).

In the previous article, I was talking about how some of the alt-right opinion-makers and figureheads are probably psy-op merchants, helping to advance a divide-and-conquer agenda by brainwashing gulible people. (more…)

It’s fair to say that what unfolded in Charlottesville, Virginia, on Saturday is the kind of thing that has been expected for some time now.
The ongoing inflamation of identity politics and provocation of divide-and-conquer or ‘strategy of tension’ conditioning has been paving the way for incidents like this one; with more probably to come.

What has been building – and has been amplified (deliberately or otherwise) by last year’s toxic presidential election – for some time has been a societal breakdown, racial tension and an atmosphere of totally toxic ideological conflict.

It has been inflamed deliberately and carefully by both the mainstream media and elements on the Left (or probably more accurately, elements involved in manipulating aspects of the Far Left) and, more openly and overtly, by the Right and Far-Right (with the so-called ‘Alt Right’ media also carefully stirring things up as much as possible).
