This was much needed, Alex. When almost everyone around us has been acting like dodo birds, it is refreshing to have plausible reason for pressing the reset button for our faith in humanity. The truth is, many many times over the past three year ordeal, Dickens' immortal words came to mind: “It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of light, it was the season of darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair." Truly, we have witnessed some profound nastiness... evil... in people, even in people we know well. And idiocy. But increasingly, more and more "common people" are not only getting their shit together, they are awakening and showing strength, galvanizing "spontaneously" in ways we couldn't have hoped or dreamed of pre-2020... Thank you again and I will look into your book (still want to read The Grand Deception) and also the book by Surowiecky... how fascinating and counter-intuitive!

I don't think anyone under 30, in my experience, watches mainstream TV or reads a newspaper. Surely support for NATO involvement in Ukraine is weakest in this age group, though my own (boomer) peer group clings to the official narrative come what may.

Appreciating the hopefulness, Alex...

I must take exception with this premise:

"Modern social media may have created an environment where these conditions have satisfied in a robust way, which radically changed the way we respond to information as a collective. Until not so long ago, information flowed from centralized sources which filtered the information that reached the public. For as long as the society depended on the printed word, radio or TV for information, controlling the flow of information and shaping the narratives was relatively straightforward."

I think there is a LOT of AI manipulation of memes in social media, and on the internet, and in email sends, and Google searches. It is somewhat subtle, but pervasive and well funded.

I am not nihilistic; far from it. I'm keeping-on.

Both narratives are wrong. You are stuck in the manipulators’ ‘either/or’ ‘left/right’ dialectic, instead of AND.

Why do Putin AND Biden AND Zelensky have rabbis?

Why is ISRAEL a Russian speaking state, according to Putin? I thought Israel was the US’ ‘greatest ally’? Why is ‘left wing’ Biden supporting the FAR RIGHT THEOCRATIC KAHANIST GOVT IN ISRAEL?

Yes, exactly! That’s how we recognise the fake dialectic. It’s how we know both Ukraine and Russia are controlled by ‘the globalists’ ie. bankers, Trilateral Commission, CFR, Kissinger, military industrial complex, criminal cartels. Why are both Putin & Zelensky so cosy with the Chabad Lubavitch cult, which is also pushing *global* Noahide Laws via the UN? Global = globalism, doh. Why would Putin fraternise and pray with the same cult pushing the Noahide Laws in the evil US, signed by all Presidents since Carter, left/right? Why is Putin also kowtowing to that group? A giant menorah in front of the Kremlin? Thought he was Christian..

How’s his CBDC and transhumanist projects going? lol Soviet Israel and China and Russia and the US are in bed together. There goes the fake Zionist/communist, left/right dialectic, east/west. Can you explain why both Christian Putin and Catholic Biden have a rabbi? Why was Jew Kissinger friend/mentor of both Putin and Schwab? Isn’t Schwab a ‘Nazi’?
