ne might think that the amount of misinformation, pressure and manipulation spread throughout
media, orchestrated and regulated by industrialized governments today is unprecedented.
But it's not, it has happened before.
At the time guy called Jesus walketh the Earth, the Roman Republic was transitioning
to Roman Empire. Globally, the
equivalent to this Roman Republic today, constantly fighting wars
everywhere but not at home is, of course, the USA
But that's not where equivalence ends.
Let me quote Wikipedia
, quoting others:
"Harper has summed up new evidence and modern discourse to interpret disease and climate change
as important drivers of political collapse, in addition to the traditional discourse about
political decisions, social weakness, and barbarian pressure. He describes a Roman climatic
optimum from about 200 BCE to 150 CE, when lands around the Mediterranean were generally warm
and well-watered. This made agriculture prosperous, army recruitment easy, and the collection
of taxes straightforward. From 150 to 450, the climate entered a transitional period, in which
taxes were less easy to collect and bore more heavily on the working population. After
about 450, the climate worsened further in the Late Antique Little Ice Age that may have
directly contributed to the variety of factors that brought Rome down. The ever-expanding Roman Empire was
built on the fringes of the tropics. Its roads and its pirate-free seas, which produced an
abundance of trade, also unknowingly created an interconnected disease ecology that unleashed
the evolution and spread of pathogens. Pandemics contributed to massive demographic
changes, economic crises, and food shortages in the crisis of the third century."
That is the intro to Dark Age.
The barbarians here are today called immigrants but they are often, due to induced fear of
collapse, treated as barbarians and invaders, climate change is climate change and pandemics
Now you can understand all that misinformation, pressure and manipulation - it's not just for
profit, the governments know that their fall is imminent so they're manufacturing panic and distraction.
Hell, they even started admitting that UFO's are real and possibly extraterrestrial, surely soon
they'll be 100% sure they are extraterrestrial.
Even if all this is perhaps still unconscious at individual level, they
do fear the dark
, and they're reacting to that future.
The Rome of today may be US, but it's clones are everywhere, some are republics some empires, some
big some small, but all are destined to fall. And what took centuries before will take years
today, before the years turn into day and the day goes away.
So welcome to Dark Ages. You might want to grab
to avoid nasty surprises.
