INTRODUCTION TO RIOTS IN THE STREETS

Post #50

There was a time when a country identified itself by ancestry and common ethnic nationality. Not so for America. If America abandons its political and economic structures, it will lose its identity more thoroughly than a country defined by a common ethnic and cultural background. America’s identity is the institutions of personal liberty, free contracts, jury trials, uncensored news media, regular and free elections, open competition, private property rights, religious freedom, and habeas corpus. Fire and blood will come when citizens abandon these pillars of freedom.

These puppet masters change cultures to fit their narrative by proposing a solution to a self-imposed problem. They instigate an event, watch for society’s reaction, and formulate a solution (problem, response, resolution) that ushers in a foreordained consequence. However, the problem is always a red herring.

A red herring event leads people to predetermined conclusions by constructing a false narrative. A red herring misleads people as a consequence of a black swan event. Nine-eleven, the threat of global warming, and COVID-19 are black swan events. The red herrings are the war on terror, strict environmental policies, and lock-downs. The Twin Towers attack ushered in the war on terror; the threat of global warming threatens our free enterprise system, and COVID-19 ushered in the fight against freedom. COVID-19 is the problem, the reaction is panic, and the consequence is the concentration of power.
