Cognitive dissonance is a trans-partisan trait

I've never been afraid of taking a controversial position. It comes with the territory of forecasting future trends. Years ago at the tail end of Alberta's boom I'd tell folks the oilsands were on their last legs. I was called crazy, this was when Max Fawcett blocked me. Standing up for what you know to be true before it's time has come is difficult. I feel I'm constantly swimming upstream and by the time the crazy things I'm discussing become self evident there are never any reparations made or mistakes acknowledged. Those who fight so vehemently against different ideas never seem to remember they were once opposed and even act as though they knew the whole time. Cowards.

As a privileged white male in a safe industry I have the luxury to be able to speak my mind and as such I feel it is my obligation to really speak it regardless what's on it. Sometimes what I'm saying resonates with "the left", and sometimes with "the right". That's because this blog is non-partisan, I don't care about your political leanings only to provide the best information I can and sometimes that information is what is being discussed in left-wing circles, and sometimes in right-wing circles.

Despite the fact I have been writing about the great reset for years while most Canadians just started talking about it yesterday I've already had numerous left-wing folks block and write me off as a "nutter". Ah, home sweet home.

Much like when I debate those on the right, those on the left when confronted with information they automatically oppose often resort to the same tactics as those on the right. Attacking the messenger, making strawman arguments, there really isn't much difference between the left and the right.

It becomes even more frustrating for me because the left apparently doesn't remember due to the age of Trump that they used to oppose the banks. That they used to doubt the honesty of the intelligence agencies. The left has gone from occupying wall street to believing "Joe Biden saved democracy". Joe 'Patriot Act' Biden himself. In my final post in 2017 before my hiatus I wrote about how the system was using Trump to re-legitimize the banking system and the elites that infest it. Mission accomplished, I'd say.

Here is an example thread of what happens when "the left" is confronted, notice how closely it mirrors the knee-jerk #DefundTheCBC style reactions you might see from the right:

I chalk this type of reaction up to cognitive dissonance. Folks see the elites getting together, they see the initiative, they know the global economy has been looted, they know if those who had looted it now had a plan to "fix it" which primarily benefits themselves and of which not many people will like that they're not going to be upfront about it. I'm not sure exactly what sort of source these folks are looking for for an in-depth analysis but you're not going to get it from the MSM funded by the very billionaires operating the initiative.

I don't mind talking about it because at this point its a done deal. It's happening, its now being publicly discussed which means the plans are already set and in motion. This will become self-evident in time.

As always this blog aims to inform those with critical thinking skills that can take this information, and act on it. For those that doubt the great reset, that is your prerogative, I have no interest in attempting to convince anyone and frankly if at this stage you still need convincing there's not a hell of a lot of actions left for you to take anyway.

  1. The left has identity politics. That's it. That's there whole reason for being.
