Truth in an Age of Mass Deception

“If we’ve all been born into a world of mass deception, then this world of illusion has become our reality, it is our normal.”

Truthshock: the psychological condition induced by a barrage of Truthbombs. Oftentimes accompanied by distress, disbelief, and denial.

TruthShock. I did not appreciate when I created this blog how accurate, how prescient, how appropriate that title was. When I set out to create the blog I wanted to call it ‘The Forest’. Alluding to the well known quote; “One can’t see the forest for the trees”, which is alluding to the fact that when one is in the middle of ‘it’ it is difficult to see the whole, or to even realize there is a greater part. All one can see is the trees in their immediate vicinity, never realizing their reality is but a tiny part of a much greater whole. Thus one cannot see the whole Truth.

When I went to WordPress to create the blog I had no second choice, plan B, or back-up plan. I tried numerous variations of ‘The Forest’ and the quote it came from but they were all taken. I am unsure where ‘TruthShock’ came from. It just popped out. But frankly, it’s a much better title and descriptor than ‘The Forest’. It’s more direct. It’s grabs the attention. And more importantly, it’s true.

The Truth is shocking. And depending on many factors, can be more than shocking. Hard to believe, hard to swallow, distressing, disturbing… dangerous. Thus why so many are quick to ignore it, to dismiss it, or deny it. And I speak thusly of those who are not directly affected by the Truth, or more appropriately not directly affected by exposing the deception. But for those who benefit from deception, and have for many years, and at
the expense of others (which is always the case) they loath the Truth, they fear the Truth, they fight tooth and nail against it, including doubling down, tripling down, quad… I could go on, for some will deceive until their last breath. And some will kill to keep the Truth from seeing the light of day… and many have.

Truth Activist Matthew Mills interrupts the 2014 Super Bowl postgame press conference to remind viewers that 9/11 has yet to be thoroughly investigated.

And because of this many good, honest, decent people avoid the Truth. None of my business. Not my concern. I don’t want to hear it. What good will come of it? This is EXACTLY what the deceiver wants.

James Perloff writes, ‘Truth is a Lonely Warrior’. He is a correct, and Truth is a poor one too. And harassed, unloved, despised, hated. Is it any wonder that so many close their eyes to it? Why would anyone pursue it, if this is so? What kind of fool would do that?

The kind of fool that knows that humankind is enslaved by deception. The kind of fool that knows that they cannot ignore this fact. The kind of fool that feels compelled to stand against the evil of deception. The kind of fool that believes that we were created to be free. The kind of fool that is willing to sacrifice their life to stop the enslavement of humankind.

The kind of fool… that is me. I’ve spent most of my life being a fool, always at my expense. And if I’m to spend the rest of my life being a fool then I choose to be a fool for the Truth.

The Truth (and I capitalize Truth to indicate that which is actually true and authentic, meaning that which actually occurred, and emotions that are genuine) is shocking because the amount of deception is staggering. The Truth is shocking because the scale of deception is jaw dropping. The Truth is shocking because the age of the deception is ancient. The Truth is shocking because the number of people involved is massive. The Truth is shocking because we live in a world of mass deception. We are directly affected by it every single day, in numerous ways. Our very lives are defined by it, the foundation of our lives are built upon it. In fact the vast majority of what we believe to be true… is false.


Major news media typically lampoon or dismiss factually-grounded assertions and those who voice them.

So shocking, so dangerous, so revealing. That a whole industry exists to keep the Truth concealed. It has many facets. And numerous tentacles. And many names. You might recognize some of them.

Wall Street Journal, New York Times, ABC News, CNN, RT, Al Jazeera, The Guardian, InfoWars, ZeroHedge, The Economic Collapse Blog, SGTReport. Some might not recognize all of these, some might recognize that some of these proclaim to be telling the ‘real’ story, alternative or truth media. Many don’t even know they are concealing the Truth. But how can this be? How can one not know they are hiding the Truth?

You can’t see the forest for the trees. This is true because the environment we are born into becomes our normal. But normal is just that which is commonly accepted. It does not mean it’s good, or healthy, or even generally liked. Millennials walking around with their faces stuck staring at their smartphones have become normal. And in fact what we find is that when a sizable percentage of the population gets addicted to something at the same time this is labeled ‘normal’. But it’s rarely called ‘addiction’ because normal also implies it is ‘ok’.

And if we’ve all been born into a world of mass deception, then this world of illusion has become our reality, it is our normal. And thus it is difficult if not impossible to see it. In part because one of the primary goals of this mass deception is too keep us stuck in our little neck of the woods. To prevent us from seeing the forest. And in fact it has been so successful that very few can or have. That even those who manage to escape from the forest, or accidentally exit it, and look back upon it cannot see it for what it is. Their eyes blocked by so many layers of deception, so many scales, that even when they look directly at the Truth they cannot see it. But in fact when you’ve been taught nothing but deception sold as truth, then the Truth itself is bizarre, incredulous, unbelievable. And that is the goal of those who practice deception. To keep you trapped in the maze of lies.

An individual can only teach another what they themselves know. If I only know 50% of the Truth, then that is all I can reveal. And if I believe the 50% Truth I know to be all of the Truth, 100%, then I’ll never dig deeper. And therefore will inadvertently become a gatekeeper of the 50% Truth I do know. And thus this reality exists within the News community at large, whether it be MSM or Alt/truth media.

Nobody has all the Truth, for that is impossible. Which is an excellent argument then for why you should get your information from numerous sources. But eventually you must step out on your own. And it’s a bloody minefield. You’ve got people deliberately deceiving. You’ve got thoroughly deceived people repeating lies as unplug-signal-psychtruth. You’ve got people stuck at partial truth passing it on as whole truth. You’ve got people who deliberately stay at a particular level of truth, for various reasons; reputation, fear, monetary. You’ve got people who started out sincerely searching for Truth but completely underestimated the reality we’re in, who were targeted and have become puppets to handlers–either by manipulation, bribery, or blackmail.

We know common tactics used by secret societies involve infiltration and subversion, controlled opposition, agent provocateurs. And, since the Truth is so dangerous, know that the closer to the Truth you are the greater the danger, the more deception, the more deceivers. So logically one can only conclude that the Alt/Truth media is thick with disinformation and wolves in sheep’s clothing.

I’m becoming more and more convinced that most who are blocking the Truth are simply pawns, just unknowing tools in the hands of the master manipulators. Frankly, it makes it much easier to not judge, and be forgiving. The bulk of our enemies are just pawns in the game, with only a very very few who ever realize this.

So then the question becomes: Who is what? Who are the agents of secret societies? Who are the occultist? Who are the honest and sincere but deeply deceived? What are the honey traps? Where are the limited hangouts? Who has sold out for money? For fame? And who are the genuine Truth seekers, who’ve been able to break through the mass deception?

You want a list? No. That would be the absolute worst service I could do. It is up to you as an individual to fight your way through the morass. To wrestle, to struggle, to doubt, to question. It is up to you as an individual to learn how use both your intellect (mind) and discernment (spirit) to discover the Truth. Learn to trust yourself first.

For now I will not call out the numerous frauds, however I will make some general observations;

  • Be wary of anyone who is regularly ‘selling’… anything.
  • There is no money in revealing the Truth. In fact the Truth and Wealth are in direct opposition.
  • Those who focus on one subject too long eventually see what they want too see… (this applies in every discipline, every culture, every subject… it is a normal human condition.)
  • Seeking the Truth is difficult, time consuming, and perilous… proceed with caution.
  • Any person who claims they’ve got all the answers is either a liar or a fool… or both. Another way of saying this is anyone who ‘always has an answer’ should not be trusted.
  • Anyone who never admits mistakes should not be trusted. Not because they won’t admit it, but because this behavior is motivated by pride, and the prideful are easily manipulated.

I will also say that the number of legitimate Truth seekers is very small. There is only a handful I trust.

TruthBomb #1 – we live in a world of mass deception. How much? Imagine the size of the known Universe. That kind of big. If that makes your head spin then you’re close to grasping the enormity of the deception we live in.

TruthBomb #2 – the primary purpose of TB1 (mass deception) is thought control. For that is what deception is, to control what another thinks. We live in a world of mass thought control. This is not a new phenomenon, thought control (and the systems to implement it) is ancient. However what is unique to the time we live is mass media. And this fact has taken thought control to absurd levels. We are all swimming, most floundering, and many drowning in an ocean of thought control.

TruthBomb #3 – the primary purpose of TB2 (mass thought control) is mental enslavement. And mental enslavement automatically leads to physical enslavement. The Truth is that we, people’s of the Earth (Asians, Europeans, Russians, Chinese, Africans, South Americans, and yes even those of the USA) are not free at all. But quite enslaved. And fast moving towards total and complete enslavement.


Is coming to a full realization of the above three Truth bombs. Is wrestling with the ramifications of mass deception, mass thought control, mass enslavement. Is understanding that everyone you know is deeply deceived. And the ones who think they are not are the most deceived, especially relevant to the intelligent and educated who think they’re too smart to be thought controlled. Is understanding that those labeled the most all-the-new-york-timessuccessful in our society are actually the most enslaved, the most controlled, the most sold out. They are simply the house slaves. Those willing to bend their knees and worship the false gods of fame, fortune, and power.

Huxley said the goal of this most malevolent ultimate revolution would be that people loved their servitude. But he was mistaken, or more likely he deliberately misspoke. The ultimate revolution is that people would never realize they are slaves. For how can the slaves revolt if they don’t even know they’re bound and chained? This is the very definition of insidious.

It is not falling into the rabbit hole… it is trying to climb out. For everyone is IN the rabbit hole. Deep deep within. And the goal is to keep you stuck inside. (Note: I ran into the ‘climbing out of the rabbit hole’ somewhere else, but cannot remember where or who, not my idea but 100% accurate). So then the struggle is crawling out of the rabbit hole. And there are countless dead ends, false trails, and false exits.

If we’ve been born into mass deception then how would you know it? This in and of itself is a deep question. What is real? What is illusion? Who is genuine? Since thought control is real and we are immersed in it, then what thoughts are my own? If my thoughts define who I am, and most (all) of my thoughts have come from others (mass media)… then who or what am I?

It is one thing to ask the question, “Who am I?”. It is another to attempt to answer it. And and a whole other reality to truly struggle, search, and fight to discover the answer.

Do not believe me. Do not trust me. Think for yourself. Make your own way. Blaze your own path. Take back control of your life. Be your own person. Decide what and why you believe in and stand up for it.


For the Truth will set you Free! But no one said it would be easy or painless.

Personal Note:

This might be the last blog post I write. Or the last for a while. Why? Because if I am to write anymore I must practice what I know to be true. I must unplug from mass media. All of it. Newsprint, Radio, TV/Movie, Computer(Internet). I’ve conquered 3 of then, the last to fall is the computer. I must free myself. For I know I’m controlled. I can literally feel myself fighting against it, on a daily basis. It’s bizarre to become aware of one’s own self wrestling against it’s programming. My ego watches as my id and superego fight it out. It’s maddening, frustrating… but a struggle not only worth it but necessary. First, one must free themselves.

For those who are struggling, confused, frustrated, angry, lost… it’s ok. You’ve got to walk through the fire to find the Truth. But I can assure you of this. For those who sincerely seek the Truth you will find it. You must fight to stay unbiased. You must be slow to judge, and even slower to make conclusions. You must be willing to admit you’re wrong. You must stop trying to be ‘right’. You must learn to accept the Truth as best you can piece together, knowing we’ll never get the complete picture. You must understand that sometimes the best you can do is expose that a deception has occurred. You must eventually realize that it is impossible to become completely undeceived.

You must decide to stop living your life reacting to the actions(deceptions) of others, and forge your own life. You must take back control of your life.

  1. Memory Hole Reflections on Media and Politics

    This blog was created for discussing media and politics, at least that is my understanding. Sometimes the comments went into one apropos or two, which I am guilty of. Connecting the dots so to speak. However, I never discuss religion, it is a personal thing. My best friends are Catholics, born again Christians, Hindus, and a Lutheran or two. Never, ever does religion get in the way of friendship. The only Mormon I have known is Recynd through this blog and she is sorely missed.

    My brother left the long established state church of Norway because he did not agree with their policies. The country no longer has a state church, not politically correct, could offend others. Religion is one whole other subject and goes so deep and so wide, has for eons, that discussing it ought to be set aside on a blog just for the subject.

    On this blog media and politics have evolved into topics such as the latest article here “Truth in an Age of Mass Deception”. Deception belongs to both media and politics and I welcome subjects like that. Very much appreciated.

    lophatt, I’ll miss you. See you at the lefse competition in your Nordic neighborhood (ethnic joke).

    1. Anne,
      Lophatt isn’t going anywhere.

      We have his IP address….hehe

      I think everyone’s over this. It is true it is impossible to completely avoid any religious connections to the crime syndicates because they’re all neck deep in the Hoopla But just like the Freemasons the people at the bottom have no clue what the people at the top are up to .

      Trust me I know my stepfather was a Freemason and quit when they brought him into the “tribe” and told him what was really going on.

      Very scary, he warned me to stay away from them and don’t kick the beehive.

      All good.
      I know I don’t articulate that great but you get the point.

      1. That is very true Ric

        The blue masons have no idea what is going on at the top, it is compartmentalized. The wife of a guy I worked with told me her father joined the masons and reached the point where they told him what was going on. He said I quit. They told him nobody quits the masons. He lived, nobody put a contract on him.

        However the power of all the masonic empire is the p2 in Rome. It controls the whitehall masons in the city of London which in turn controls DC and prints the money. Rothschild is the vatican banker. He is worth a reported 500 trillion. It is difficult to skip over this little trifle simply because it hurts somebody’s feelings.

        Herman Von Rompuy, former president of the European union and a jesuit declared the nation state is obsolete. That is very hard to ignore.

        Most rank and file masons do know of golden dawn ceremonies where the Rothschilds dress up in devil costumes and rape the maids on August 31st to breed war children as befell Hitler’s grandmother.

        Another attorney I knew was told after law school, you will need to join the masons are you will never rise higher than an attorney in a small podunk town. In other words make the Faustian bargain.

      2. Ric, you wrote: “I know I don’t articulate that great but you get the point.”

        You are doing great and I have always gotten your points.

  2. Unfortunately religions tend to form power blocks which eclipse political affairs. They can be ignored only at one’s own peril. You can ignore both politics and religion but they won’t ignore you. Political correctness is designed guard against this type inquiry.

    If anyone believes they can understand the current world situation without understanding zionism or the vatican they are sadly mistaken. This is politics combined with religion in it’s most virulent form.

    John Helmer hits the nail on the head with this. He elaborates on many things involving what is known as third Rome, a battle that has been ongoing for centuries.

    The docrtrine of the third Rome refers to the idea that Russia is beginning to eclipse the idea, or soon will, the idea of Rome being the center of Christianity and empire. Revolutionizing the center of the old world if you will.

    Much of this went into high gear when Ivan the Terrible received a vaticn contingent and told them to return to Rome, he was the representative of Christ on earth. It went down hill from there and reached a point featuring the bolshevik revolution where two jesuits, Hitler and Stalin represented wealthy industrialists, resulting in the murder of millions. One of Stalins class mates was head of the slave labor camps murdering millions. So no thinking people simply cannot simply forget about all this even if it makes us feel good and politically correct.

  3. I guess it is just me but I am always a bit skeptical when it is suggested what topics can be covered by those who don’t own the blog or are not the moderators.

    It seems to me that Dr. Tracy is intelligent enough to decide which subjects are off limits. He will let us know I am sure of it.

    I don’t anticipate him doing that anytime soon as the Florida State board of education fired him for discussing the wrong topics.

    Is there anyone who does not see the hypocrisy involved when blog participants assume the very position that resulted in Dr. Tracy being fired?

    If all posts concerning religion here disappeared, Patrick the shill would have very few posts left. In thousands of these posts, I don’t recall anyone complaining too much about it until now. I don’t let the rantings of his satanic mind cause me to flee. Most of the time I just skip over them. He serves his purpose, one recognizes truth more readily when it is highlighted against a background of sheer evil lunacy.

    That was a very nice article Ann B., I will reblog it.

    1. Yes,
      this is social manipulation to a very high degree,
      discussion on religion, politics, Zionism, Islamism etc. is the very core of this blog,
      truth knows no boundaries,
      keep up the good work Mick


  4. That was a wonderful Truthshock article by Kevin Scott King. I agree w almost everything that he says. Certainly it is true that often the well-educated tend to be most narrow in their worldview. So many of them feel entitled to dismiss any idea which wd require consideration, investigation or growth in knowledge. To be “well-read” so often means to be well-deceived, and w an armor of arrogance.

    So many of the better commenters on the web take a position– for manmade global warming, or for Putin as our savior, or for the inevitable collapse of the dollar, or whatever. They then defend their position by excluding contrary data, which they label “crazy.” In the conspiracy within which we live, and to reflect the limitations of my own knowledge, I find it better to take only one position: that I will seek the truth wherever it leads. When I say that I currently believe that global warming is a hoax I’m able to name the evidence, but more importantly I always invite countervailing evidence. And when it’s given I always consider it.

    Being a truth warrior means sublimating the ego to something more important– to the Truth, without which we are not going to vanquish the forces of deception & darkness.

    To not defend many “positions”, but only the Truth wherever it leads and whoever says it is immensely liberating and I do recommend it.

    I would recommend to the author that he seek out worthwhile fiction of the 20s, 30s, or late 19th century. Its window upon the character & concerns of ordinary Americans, the position occupied by morality, the unconscious belief that what one decided to do w one’s life was important– the contemplation of all this and more is a resting point for us today. For what has so thoroughly befallen us is new, at least in its degree, and cannot have entirely squashed out those earlier morally sturdy people.

    1. Austin is all over the news today for the 50th ‘anniversary’ of the UT clock tower shootings as well. Scanning a few headlines shows a theme, with the media noting August 1, 1966 as the ‘start of the era of modern mass shootings.’ Hmmm…

  5. Great article,
    however it is not necessary or advantageous to cut yourself off from information, i.e., internet,
    one must be smart, avoid the usual suspects but making yourself ignorant of what’s going on is not the answer,
    technology should be exploited, educate yourself, stay informed

  6. A good read until the very end, and then the usual “you need to” do this and that. I always wonder about these truth seekers telling others what they must do. “Truth” is a very bad concept for me to start with – it opens up that whole world of right/wrong, good/bad, them/us, true/false ethical crap that the religious or priest class monopolized for most of history and mixed myth and reality successfully to control their contributions, place, and wealth. That priest class has now become our “intelligence agents” class of our culture and they are doing very well at mixing myth and reality with the help of the soc. sciences Huxley warned us of. I see and look for human intelligence as those who acquire fairly accurate perceptions of what’s real and then have fairly appropriate reactions to their perception. Not easy. My model is the worm – a consistent perception of environment and a consistent and helpful response – EVERY time. Human intelligence is a misnomer – our limbic systems and higher brain functions do not make helpful responses to an environment we see only as we wish it to be.

    1. You criticize the writer for emphasizing the necessity to look for the truth, specifically by considering many sources. As human beings we must base our actions upon the truth. And yes, we are the only animal able to consider the moral question of right and wrong.

      First you liken the serious question of acquiring truth and a moral understanding to “the priest class who had a monopoly upon it.” No one has ever had a monopoly upon it. You prefer to tar all religious leaders everywhere w base motives– not exactly a representation of your truthfulness. Then you find intelligence agents as their sequel– not exactly a representation of your logic.

      You then purport to admire the worm. In which case you should not be commenting here. You seem to have self-identified w a creature unable to appreciate the concepts of truth or morality.
      Now go play and let the grownups talk.

    2. ” Human intelligence is a misnomer – our limbic systems and higher brain functions do not make helpful responses to an environment we see only as we wish it to be.”

      And how do you know this? Your self-admitted position is that you can see the environment only as you wish it to be. You profess to tell us about reality whilst simultaneously saying we are unable to grasp it. Reductio ad absurdum. You need a course in logic.

      Further, your position is dishonest. If you believed it you would be silint, believing yourself bereft of knowledge. Those who espouse the futility of seeking Truth, knowledge & morality are frequently driven by hostility. I hope that your motive may be simple error.

  7. Today is the 70th anniversary of The Battle of Athens (Tennessee). It lasted over a two day period August 1- 2, 1946.

    ~The Battle of Athens (sometimes called the McMinn County War) was a rebellion led by citizens in Athens and Etowah, Tennessee, United States, against the local government in August 1946. The citizens, including some World War II veterans, accused the local officials of predatory policing, police brutality, political corruption and voter intimidation. The event is sometimes cited by firearms ownership advocates as an example of the value of the Second Amendment in combating tyranny.~

    A very good movie was made about this battle:
    American Story – The Battle of Athens – 1946 Athens, Tennessee – Full Movie

  8. Over in London a 19 year old shy boy who was lightly bullied in school and have mental problems, knifed a bunch of tourists on Russell Square. The bikini clad witness (photos from some social media site) adds some real credibility to the story. The lightly bullied killer, who left Norway in 2002 when he was 5, was a Norwegian citizen from Somalia. Ok.

    Not to be outdone, in bucolic Bridgewater, CT bordering Newtown and housing several celebrities, they have not seen such hoopla since the photographer was found in Lake Lillinonah. The one who shot scenes at SH. During an overnight home invasion a homeowner was shot, but will live. The town is close to lock down with huge police and media presence. One TV reporter said there is no need for shelter in place. Ok.

    According to police, the shooter is a light skinned white or Hispanic. Political correctness gone nuts. Now whites can be either dark skinned or light skinned. Be sure to say that when saying the word Hispanic. Then you have covered all grounds.

  9. He said, she said, they said, Jillian Soto said and then they say that they did not say it. The power “SH victims” along with the “SH story” have been given to sway public minds and presidential candidates is astounding. They have a contract with the devil till the day they die; the day the devil comes to collect.

    Speaking of political candidates; the last scene from “The Candidate” – Robert Redford 1972 – when Redford as the newly elected senator says “Marvin, what do we do now?” is indicative of (s)elections and politics being one colossal industry. Everywhere.

    Almost 3 minutes:

  10. According to this RT article, Trump claims that Hillary Clinton founded ISIS. No, Hillary did not do it – not this time.

    William Engdahl, who has knowledge about the subject, explains how ISIS came about on The Power Hour with Joyce Riley on Wednesday 8/3, 2016 – starts 17 minutes into the third hour.

    Aug. 3, 2015 (hour 3) – Guest William Engdahl

    Or you can read about it in his latest book “The Lost Hegemon: Whom the gods would destroy”.

  11. Outstanding piece. It’s extremely rare to meet someone so committed to their path. Passionately written. I understand this struggle, very well. It echoes the ascetic vow of the bhodisattva, or the right hand path of alchemic impulse, or the Gnostic drive for complete removal from material life. I highly recommend that period of retreat. If you wish to enlighten the world however, you must be in it. You don’t have to be of it, but you do need to be in it. By denying the reality of the world so completely, you become powerless to change it. Aknowledge deception in all it’s grandeur of course (you have a superb gift for that) but direct your mind ultimately towards ideas that emphasize the path to it’s removal. If you manage to effect this within youself, then the world will begin to feel more real to you and evidence of truth will become abundant. Good luck. I wish you well on this path.
