“Most have heard it said the winners write history. More precisely, they edit and re-write it. They remove a few pieces here, make some additions over there, and maybe alter a few names and dates in between. This behavior has a tendency to be passed off as relatively harmless and a relic of the past, but a deeper look at its machinations indicates something entirely different. Every time an event, memory, story, or in some cases even a single word or sentence, is re-written or altered, so is our literal perception of reality. The implications of this are staggering, long before modern technology became a helpful cog in building a bigger machine.
The blueprints for the machine have been passed down through countless generations of hidden hands, the resources of the wealthy pay for its construction, a corrupt political, military and legal landscape protects it, all forms of media and social peer pressure sell it, debt slavery builds it, and our ignorance of its existence strengthens it. Its only purpose is to protect and maintain the power structure of those who necessarily hide behind it, and it has a definition: the officially sanctioned view of reality they have pre-defined for you and therefore allow you to operate within. This pre-defined perimeter of allowable thought(s) has been strictly enforced throughout the ages, both through subtle psychological manipulation as well as brutal imposition.”
