Yeah, they’ll do that…
Think another think, motherfuckers…
And Cavewoman Graffiti celebrates being a woman all year round…
Stop spinning a narrative overtly or covertly. What is done is done.
When you ignore people like me, expect the same treatment in return from the public.
Because no one is listening.
For a reason.
Journalism is following old scripts. The new kids are all frauds who are cribbers. Fuck them. They are riding on the coattails of the old and broken antiquated models.
If the profession wanted to be reborn, then they have to start from the very beginning.
And learn Adlibture, not scripture.
The first step is anarchy, and with anarchy comes adlibture.
Follow your instincts, no matter if people disagree with you or think you are strange.
You take risks, not gambles.
You find inspiration wherever you wish.
For me, I have many, but let’s talk about one: my adoration for a comic book character who is seen as Steve Ditko’s other bug-themed superhero.
Ted Kord the Blue Beetle.
He is what every person should be: a person whose word is their bond.
You make a promise. You keep that promise.
He made a promise to a dying man where no one else heard him.
He did not have superpowers, but he was smart and made the technology.
He was inconvenienced. A police officer dogged him convinced he killed the civilian who was the original Blue Beetle.
But a promise is a promise.
He may have been rich, but he used his wealth for good. He could laugh. He could fight.
But most of all, he could absolutely be trusted to do the right thing.
I have the entire Charlton run in my office.
For a reason.
Because I have an affinity for the character, I have no problem being inspired in different ways.
Make use of what you have. Keep your promises. Help other people. Don’t forget to have fun.
And I did that all while having to deal with cancer.
And it took me out of very dark places. The Kordian System is a resounding success, and who cares if it came in a comic book?
Wisdom lurks everywhere.
That is the reason journalism’s collapse is an enigma.
But it is a selfish profession that hordes in anarchy, stealing scripts.
Not creating adlibtures that make you fluid and adaptable.
Because once you prove that you can be absolutely trusted in anarchy, you are on to the next step: alchemy.
Turning lead into gold.
Because alchemy is the emotional science that takes those adlibtures and puts them to good use.
You can improvise and assess on the drop of a hat.
And then, when you have your personal gold, you share it.
The third step of altruism.
You do not tell people how moral you are: you show.
No virtue-signalling or teeth-gnashing.
You give. You give credit where credit is due. You do away with pecking orders. You are not petty or jealous, let alone vindictive or closed-minded.
Your adlibtures begin to create new worlds on their own — and if you do it right, long after you breath your last.
People patronize me, ignore me, bully me, and dismiss me.
But they can never stop me.
I made a promise a long time ago.
And I keep my promises.
I have no trouble telling people off.
But I also have no trouble being inconvenienced to help someone when they are down without them ever knowing that I did.
That’s what should have been journalism. It should have been a noble profession.
And hence, no way of getting on track to altruism where it could freely create castles and gardens of gold without losing anything in the bargain…
Don’t mess with a Cavewoman…
It’s not all about hate or you…
And I am in a good place with that…
Do you know your profanity Shibboleths?
Cavewoman always shares her honest impulses, especially to those who don’t want it!
As I have mentioned before, what is popular on this site and what happens to be my focus are two different things. If I talk about journalism — which is critical — then I don’t get that much traffic.
If I talk about strategy — which is also critical, but not what I am known for — then I get more traffic and more people coming here and staying.
To those of you, thank you.
And it is propaganda. There was a war against journalism, but journalism is no better with their war against democracy. Media stocks are not seeing a lift from their little raging wars, but a tumble, yet it isn’t stopping them in the slightest.
So what does that mean for this website?
Chaser is going to re-invent information dissemination.
A Dangerous Woman is going to continue to do storytelling differently.
But those aren’t the kinds of content I can produce every single day.
I’m bootstrapping, remember?
I am an army of one woman. No staff. No fabulously wealthy benefactors I have to appease.
So as I shift away from the old journalism, I am going to focus on strategy.
And how propaganda and manipulation are misdirecting collective thought away from critical thinking and free will with hate, fear-mongering, and ruses.
I will mention how certain articles are trying to rig thinking.
But also how to expand your options and outcomes with considering options that are hidden and suppressed.
I will be running down various war strategies, and recommend books and articles.
You know mine, but as I have ten Ikea shelves worth of books — and counting — filled with all sorts of reading, this will be your go-to place for it. It will be your reality check when you are tempted to let others do your thinking for you.
With anarchy coming because the Establishment failed to manipulate enough people to vote the way they wanted in 2016, the big guns are all over the place, this is the place that gives you sensibility in an impossibly ill-behaved world.
I already know who is reading me. I might as well give them something to talk about…
When you have those cock-sucking motherfuckers thinking they can bomb people into submission, they should realize not everyone rolls that way.
So, for all the gaslighting, puritanical shaming, and the like, let’s not fall for that bullshit in 2019.
Let those lazy Establishment fuckers earn their keep for once.
Omoiyari. What a quaint notion. The idea of altruism. It is a not a notion taught in j-schools, but it is one I abide by because if you are in the business to teach and/or inform, that has to be your guiding motive.
Because knowledge is one of those things you give without losing it yourself.
So long as you understand that it is something without strings attached.
Too bad journalists never learned that lesson.
The Toronto Star never did, judging by this article with the link stating this:
Donald Trump has made at least 3,924 false claims so far in his presidency. The Star's Daniel Dale counted
How many lies did the Canadian PM make? How many did the Star?
How many secrets did the federal regime keep from the public? How many did the Star?
They both had a mutual secret that got exposed recently.
And it is a very treacherous one that is, in fact, scandalous.
But both the Star and the federal Grits are in serious trouble. That magic weed isn’t doing its trick, and the gullible rubes at the Globe and Mail think they know something, but they are morons.
Journalists failure to understand おもいやり has cost them their clout.
A profession thrives and progresses so long as it has innocence and idealism, from education to medicine to journalism.
When you allow psychopaths to infiltrate a noble profession and use sophistry and logical fallacies to cover up their wickedness, the profession becomes corrupt, rotten, and eventually FUBAR.
Canadian journalism is the best example of that rot that turned them into propaganda tools. The CBC doesn’t get it. They are speculating about Trump’s government shut down and how it could backfire. They do not understand military strategy, and hence, don’t see the big picture.
When I wrote OutFoxed: Rupert Murdoch’s war on journalism, I studied The O’Reilly Factor very carefully. I drew maps all over the place. I read every single transcript of the program from the first to the very last one before I could no longer update my book. I broke down his methods and strategies and treated them like military operation plans.
For good measure, I used my Britain’s toy soldiers to recreate five of his most effective gambits, with each soldier representing his arguments.
There was no wonder why he held full control for almost every debate save for one, which I wrote about at length that pretty much came off like this:
But Trump has a natural instinct that surpasses O’Reilly. You cannot interview a couple of “experts” and think you have figured him out.
Because journalists are so isolated from the world, that they have no idea who they are covering. They live in a psychic bubble and have less and less connect with the public.
おもいやり requires you to give, not to take.
It requires you to have respect for the past, nurture the present, and be a guardian for the future.
That’s not journalism.
おもいやり guides me. I feel おもいやり and am grateful that I do.
I see things from the heart. I have emotions that give me as much information as my mind. It gives me the courage to face reality in order to find the truth.
Journalism could have been reinvented and stronger than ever. Instead of seeing problems as puzzles to solve, they decided they were going to brainwash 7.4 billion people and trick them into giving up their free will and liberties. Enough already.
Deal with your own rot first. Write exposés about the wickedness of your own profession. Once you see how far you have sunk, then you’ll understand how you got there and why people walked away from you.
Instead of scaring people, you should be making them brave.
That’s what is at heart of everything I do in my life, including a little resurrected site called…
Who was worse this week?
Should anyone care about the Times’ story? I don’t recall too many modern presidents being soldiers or enlisting. They still got voted in. Canadian universities still have those Left-wing American draft dodgers as professors, and no one is getting upset about that.
The same people who were marching in anti-war protests are bitching about someone who didn’t fight a war? You assholes didn’t, either; so just shut the fuck up.
The middle class don’t care about much.
Not even if the news has no connect to reality.
Take CBC here in Canada. They puke bullshit how the Canadian economy was “resilient” in 2018, but for whom? We had a lot of stores closing. We had factories closing.
We have a homeless crisis, and in traditionally middle class safe havens such as the Golden Horseshoe. Real estate is rapidly cooling off, and household debt is at very bad levels. We have an opioid crisis, and that’s not a sign of prosperity.
Yet like a dubbed foreign film, the voice over doesn’t ever match up with the moving lips.
So what’s going on?
On the one hand, it is a confirmation bias: choose a self-serving narrative, and look for evidence that supports your narrative as you ignore evidence that refutes it. In the US, the press is anti-Trump all the time. It is pure insanity because they had power to be kingmakers until the day they weren’t. They are mad at him for showing them the reality of their situation.
They should have been grateful.
They should have seen what happened and how to re-invent their profession. Instead, they veered into rank propaganda and haven’t stopped as their fortunes go further down.
They hate Trump. They also hate Facebook for the same reason. They hate “populism” — again, for the same reason. They got mad at poor people for expressing themselves, using social media to do it, and voting for the only candidate that spoke to them during the election.
Once upon a time, journalists wouldn’t be hating those people: they would be writing about them and speaking to them, but then they got full of themselves and got lost in narcissistic fantasy.
You used to inform these same people. You used to publish their letters to the editor. You used to get outraged when they got hurt in life, and the Establishment tried to screw them over.
What happened to those people? Where did you go wrong?
In Canada, the press betrayed the people, but in a different way: they lied to them, but are lulling them into thinking things are better than they actually are. They mimic Soviet-style propaganda where the news told citizens how great the economy was, and it was in the toilet. People laughed at the news because it was bullshit and they knew it.
They believed it for a while, until they imploded. Regions broke away, and the fragmentation spelled the end of that system of governance.
It happened to the Soviet Union. It happened to Yugoslavia.
Would it happen to Canada? It depends how badly things go. Quebec, British Columbia, and Alberta would leave. Toronto would, too. The US would greatly benefit because they could gain access to natural resources easily and quietly. It is not as if Canada would be a match for the US, but why do it loudly, when you can do the same thing silently without fuss?
But Canada was always an impossible country: it is too big with too few people spread out too far apart.
What holds them together? Fairy tales.
The kicker is that if this country could face reality, it would leave other countries in the dust.
The US is in the same position. There is nothing wrong with their president. He is no worse than his predecessor. You cannot fault Donald Trump for seeing reality that you can win a presidency by stumping and going directly to the people in person — and by using Twitter. Kudos to him.
He exposed that the media has no teeth. They have been gumming at him for so long that you’d think they’d get tired of their own temper tantrum.
The press should have just stood back and saw their own arrogant and oblivious childishness.
I remember talking to one US reporter about Trump before November 2016. He thought Clinton would win it. I said no way. He was absolutely certain, citing polls. I said look at the polls for Brexit, and even for Toronto’s mayoralty race where Rob Ford handily won. He said it was an apples to oranges comparison. I said it was apples to apples.
I could see what Trump saw: a dead media. The model was no longer aligned with reality. If the strongest of the media — the US — couldn’t do it, then neither could anyone else. People can get offended all they want, but no other country had the journalistic muscle saved for the UK. They are having the same problems, and there is no relief in sight.
And what you have is a hamster wheel that marks nothing.
What you don’t have is news anymore. North, East, West, South.
No one minding the times. No one minding the place.
For example, child exploitation is a serious problem in Canada. So is human trafficking. We have a serious problem with First Nations women vanishing and being murdered. Lots of child pornography and prostitution going on here.
And the laws here are a joke.
With a press that aids and abets these people.
And in the US, the hate on Trump is so out of control that the US will pay for it for decades to come because no one is paying attention at the things that are actually important.
How many people can live well? How many people die needlessly?
What are the dangers?
It is not a fairytale. It is not campfire story.
It is a clock. It is a compass.
You know where you are right now and where things are going?
When you know, you are F.R.E.E.D.
What should you be going after?
The strength isn’t in the One.
It is in the Infinite.
And, darlings, that is your message to ponder very carefully, courtesy of…
