Why CNNís Downfall May Be The Most Significant Thing In The World Right Now
Let the media wars begin, and they have!

This could be the most significant thing in the world right now, especially for alternative media.

The fact that CNN is picking, and yes, it is picking on a Internet forum poster is beyond the pale. It is really hard to believe that they would allow themselves to stoop so low. It proves the panic they are in since President Trump has shunned them. They will not win this war; in fact, they will regret ever starting it.

This unprecedented escalation in the grassroots media war upon the establishment propaganda machine may be the most significant thing happening in the world right now, because whoever controls the narrative controls the world. The real currency which drives humanity isnít gold, isnít money, isnít plutocratic fiats, isnít the petrodollar, isnít even military strength ó itís narrative. Power only exists where it exists because people agree to pretend it exists there; they agree to all subscribe to the same stories about who has the power.

If they wanted to, tomorrow everyone in America could decide that Khloe Kardashian is the undisputed Empress of the United States, and that all money has been replaced by pistachio shells. Iím not saying they should do those things, but it is absolutely within their freedom to do so; the only thing stopping them is a consensus narrative about government and money operating a certain way in that part of the world. Whoever controls that consensus narrative controls all power in the most powerful nation on earth.

Itís like this throughout all of humanity, and has been throughout all of history; whoever has been able to control a civilizationís story about what it is, how it works and where itís going has been able to control that civilization.

This is why religion has had such a massive influence upon human culture in a way that has almost always been intertwined with ruling power structures; religion is pure narrative, and whoever controls that narrative can control the people. There is a reason the most prolific religions place such emphasis on obedience, meekness, and the nobility of poverty while being sure to pay your tithes and render unto Caesar what is Caesarís.


By the way, this article is by Caitlin Johnstone, my favorite journalist!
