    How Do You Know What You Know? - Larken Rose

    Another excellent video from Larken Rose. Enjoy.





    How do you know what you know? That question is a lot more important than most people assume, and the recent ridiculous spectacle surrounding Covid-19 is a shining example of that.

    The "correction catching up to the rumor" and 'the damage that has already been done" are SPOT ON.

    I know right? I mean, it's not like the guy is a god or some kind of guru or anything. Hell he doesn't even want that kind of following. But what the guy IS, and everyone who has any first hand knowledge of what he's been achieving unanimously agrees, is massively successful. You'd think that alone would get people curious enough to pay attention and actually act on his suggestions. At the very least throw a few bucks his way so he can keep doing it. Regardless, and in spite of the fact that this lockdown $#@! has just about put me out of business, I'm joining his channel and maintaining it for as long as I can afford it. I encourage everyone else to do the same.

    And give Candles In the Dark a try. I've heard nothing but good about it as well. Gonna try it myself.

    Hmmmm.

    Sometimes people need an explanation for the psychological anxiety they experience. Whether the explanation has any actual relationship to that anxiety doesn't really matter. I like this fella and his river.

    The same way that Climate Change is used to screen the anxiety caused by National Financial insanity. It prevents the fear from engendering a response to the actual threat, and marshals it in a way that is useful "addressing" the perceived threat.

    Lets say that in Bruin Town there has been, in fact, a string a violent attacks by an unknown perpetrator. When 'news' of the presence of a big scary bear spreads, this 'news' synthesizes neatly with the anxiety of the townspeople, which is real and has been engendered by the actual string of violent attacks. A narrative is born of the truth and a half-truth, "Big scary bears exist, and have attacked people. A big scary bear is attacking townspeople right now." Predictably, the Towns People want to stop the bear, and fortunately the mayor has the solution! "Big Scary Bear attacks could happen to anyone, and there is nothing a single person can do about it. We must work together to stop this Big Scary Bear, I propose a tax increase to fund a Scary Bear Patrol."

    Now, of course it isn't a Scary Bear attacking people in town, but the Mayor's nephew. While the Scary Bear Patrol beats the bushes around town for the "bear," the nephew continues to attack people. Casualties mount. "The Bear Patrol," bruits the mayor, "is underfunded. It falls on those of us able to give more, to do just that. We Must Stop This Bear, or it will attack us all." So the towns people pay more to the Bear Patrol, but the attacks continue unabated.

    Thus, the psychological anxiety experienced by the Towns People is given an explanation that has no actual relationship to that anxiety, simultaneously inhibiting a response to the real threat while harnessing it in a way that is useful to "addressing" the perceived threat. By addressing, of course, I mean exploiting that anxiety for gain (financial, political, ideological et al).



    I would add that a certain level of this anxiety seems to be ever-present in just about anyone. For they that know how to marshal it? A fertile source of mischief for the rest of us.

    Plug in fiscal lunacy for violent attacks, and climate change for the scary bear. The Fed? I suppose that would be the nephew.
    People, young people in particular, know they are $#@!ed. They don't know precisely why, but they know it none-the-less. Our deplorable position is the result of financial criminality, but to explain the anxiety that we feel at being so-very-$#@!ed we are given a Narrative: Climate Change, Racism, Plague, etc (the particular half-truth changes quickly, because they have to. If they don't change the program frequently, people may well get wise--though I doubt it). So the fear-at-being-$#@!ed (and anger) is elided from the actual threat, and marshaled into something useful for "addressing" the perceived threat and that useful thing being more, and more centralized, control.

    Sometimes the Scary Bear is a black man, sometimes white, sometimes weather, sometimes plague, sometimes statues. But if I were running a multi-trillion dollar scam I guess I'd find as many Scary Bears as I could.

    I am not sure I precisely understand what I am saying either.

    Thanks so much for the clarification. I understand what you're saying now and, quite frankly, can't disagree with a word of it. Excellent post. Thanks again.

    Just a quick reminder that while the whole COVID-19 farce is what sparked Roes's comments in the video, the same principles apply to many other situations as well.

    I second that.
    “The right to life is the source of all rights—and the right to property is their only implementation. Without property rights, no other rights are possible. Since man has to sustain his life by his own effort, the man who has no right to the product of his effort has no means to sustain his life. The man who produces while others dispose of his product, is a slave.”
