The News Pauper: The Quiet Ones

By W.B. Dunne

It may be the status quo that the right-wing of the political spectrum in this country has bragging rights on who has the farthest out, most violent, stupidest supporters. In the entire history of this country it has always been the right that provides the most madness, the least progress, and the greatest potential for sudden violent action.

But the News Pauper maintains that we have reached an era where the old template doesnt quite fit anymore. I have been witnessing a dynamic I am unfamiliar with. Never before has the apparatus for disseminating hatred and misinformation had such a heavily greased track to ride on. I wonder if the stirring I feel is the awakening of a real Godzilla.

Could it be that all the overkill engaged in by the likes of Fox and friends has gone too far and desensitized its target market? They have an apparatus that Goebbels would have recognized and slobbered over, but is the incompetence with which they operate their undoing? It is no longer necessary to invoke the cry for authoritarian tyranny through the false flag. One can traumatize just as severely without giving the masses as much as a hangnail, through the mass media, which the right controls.

My little column and my articles reach perhaps as many as several people. However, if I get one comment affirming my premise, I can assure myself that I havent wasted anyones time. If it were otherwise, I would hope the large readership I was addressing was equally discerning. What will happen to this machine that seems to undermine its own existence? A tool designed to educate cannot be long applied to a purpose opposed to that result. You wouldnt use pliers to hammer a nail, right?

We have already seen the playing out of the infotainment angle, in other words, the attempt to replace what will enlighten with something else that stands in as important information. An entire generation has grown up thinking that TMZ is news.

If I were one of the nameless operatives of the apparatus, I would be paying a great deal of extra attention to my own demographic. It would seem that the greatest threat to the culmination of my goals would have to come from within. Perhaps a member of my own secure set would suffer an epiphany of conscience, and decide to expose or attack from within. A single person can affect a great change when that person is positioned to capitalize on the opportunity.

The NP predicts that in the very near future we will see a great defection from the power class that will in a single blow recover much of what America has relinquished in her confusion over what to believe. It is time for that Great Man to appear that will renounce his sins against his fellow citizens of the world and become a hero in doing so. Maybe that man is thinking about that this very minute.

After all, one cant help but get the eerie feeling that some agenda has been thwarted somewhere, and the perpetrators are merely regrouping for another, more desperate attempt. I think the most likely area to watch is the groups that were poised to inherit the territory that was left behind by Bush-Cheney.

No one could have anticipated
