Or: the Omnipresent Untruth, Falsehood, Fraud, Deceit or Lie. This is a central and crucial component of the status quo, the fact that you're not meant to know the truth, and are constantly lied to about what's really happening in the world around you. The fact that your rulers can not allow you to know the truth also explains why truth-tellers, like Julian Assange for example, are always prosecuted and silenced by any means possible, murdered if necessary like in the case of Martin Luther King Jr.

If the people only knew how much and how deep they're being screwed over... It's amazing to me how easy it apparently is to make billions of people not see the truth about so many small and large things. The Big Lie, although commonly credited to Adolf Hitler, is a commonly used propaganda technique by the ruling class throughout history; it's use has reached all time highs in our time, and I sometimes feel like I suffer from the Cassandra Syndromewhen I get responses of disbelief, denial and attempted refutations when I try to warn my readers about some of the biggest lies of our times in my posts.
The Cassandra metaphor (variously labeled the Cassandra "syndrome", "complex", "phenomenon", "predicament", "dilemma", "curse") occurs to one, when one's valid warnings or concerns are disbelieved by others.
The main reason for why we're constantly lied to, is our current socioeconomic arrangement that protects the power-balance, or power-imbalance, called capitalism. The capitalist lie is the lie that contains all other untruths we're being sold; as long as people can not see that this capitalist lie is just our modern substitution for the monarchist lie, they will already be half way to believing all subsequent lies. So, I'll say it once again; capitalism is there to keep most of us poor and powerless, there's no two ways about it. There can be no other outcome than a few people who rule all others in an economy that's based on the private accumulation of wealth; maybe it's because this is so easy to understand that a 5 year old can understand it, that so few people believe this to be true. This small truth is inconsequential because it's believed by so few people. Too many people much sooner believe the Big Lie than the Small Truth:
A big lie (German: große Lüge) is a propaganda technique. The expression was coined by Adolf Hitler, when he dictated his 1925 book Mein Kampf, about the use of a lie so "colossal" that no one would believe that someone "could have the impudence to distort the truth so infamously".
Repeat a Big Lie often enough, and most people will believe it to be a law of nature. The biggest lie in our lifetimes next to the omnipresent capitalist lie is, in my opinion, the lie about the biggest crime of our lifetimes; the 9/11 terrorist attacks. While right after those attacks there were many blogs, posts, YouTube videos and the likes about the many unanswered questions related to this crime of the century, in recent years it's become silent around this crucial topic. It's as if we've collectively succumbed to a state of just not caring about truth anymore. This nihilistic attitude can for a large part be explained by one of the main features of the all-encompassing lie of capitalism; the veneration of the individual, and the dismissal of anything common. The constant placing on a pedestal of the individual has caused many to believe that they're a brain in a vat, that there's no other truth than their own, that there's no such thing as a shared truth. Which is comical because shared truth is what scientific truths are based on; there, I've just given you an explanation as to why the political left is more prone to accept scientific consensus (another word that can only be understood in common, not individualistic terms) than the political right...
But hey, I'll stop here and invite you to watch today's video that's in part about a not often discussed subject related to the lies surrounding the 9/11 attacks, namely the 28 heavily redacted pages of the official report on those attacks. I didn't know that one of the revelations about these 28 pages was that it actually were 29 pages. Watch the video as a reminder of how we're constantly being mind-fucked, and that it takes quite an effort to keep your eye-balls on the truth that's right there for all who are willing to see it...
