They Keep Us Focused On Decoy Dichotomies

“Westerners are taught that evil foreign ‘regimes’ don’t let their people criticize their government, meanwhile westerners themselves are trained to never criticize their government. They’re trained instead to criticize decoy dichotomies — false partisan nonsense — not the real power. Westerners are trained to criticize the actions of the other party or the beliefs of the other ideological faction, never the foreign or domestic policies which are fully supported by both parties. The power structure which maintains 99.9% of the same policies regardless of which party is officially in charge is the real government, but westerners are trained never to look there. They’re instead trained to fixate on a false two-handed puppet show diversion. Westerners say ‘Well I’d rather live here than China or Russia, because here I can criticize my government whenever I want!’ Okay. But you don’t.” (11/14/22)
