This mad world

(The following was written by Andrew Torba, founder and CEO of Gab.com, one of the first free-speech alternatives to Facebook, Twitter and their ilk. Torba lives somewhere in a rural area with his family due to the “tolerant” left’s incredibly relentless effort to take him out.)

How can you think straight and make rational decisions when each and every day you hear conflicting and contradictory information from “authoritative” sources? You can’t. No one can. That’s the whole point. That’s why the powers that be are doing this.

Welcome to the secular hell of a post-truth world.

We don’t need to wear masks. No wait, now we do. Hold up, now we need to wear two masks. We can stop wearing masks now. Surprise! We need to wear masks again. Actually, it turns out masks aren’t as effective as we thought.

We just need 15 days to slow the spread. Now we need a month. Maybe a year. Never mind, we didn’t need to lockdown at all, and it caused more harm than good.

Don’t take any vaccine that Donald Trump rushed to market. You didn’t get the vaccine? Are you nuts? The vaccine is highly effective. Oops, it looks like highly vaccinated Israel is having a major outbreak. Get the vaccine or lose your job.

Are you keeping up? This is the reality of living in a post-truth world.

They want us shell-shocked with rapidly changing information overload which leads to option-paralysis and fear. When people are in a state of fear coupled with option-paralysis they are very susceptible to manipulation and easy to control.

While we are all dazed and confused, they are destroying families, small businesses and entire nations. They are rigging elections. They are botching troop withdrawals to flood Western countries with refugees. The American border is being invaded by hundreds of thousands of people.

They are buying up single-family homes and pricing you out of the market. They are printing endless money and inflating your currency.

They are transferring trillions of dollars in wealth to themselves and shutting up every last voice of dissent while doing it.

All the while, you worry about a virus that statistically you have a 98% chance of surviving with the immune system God gave you.

By design, it’s exhausting and impossible to keep up with. It’s meant to drain you mentally, physically, and spiritually so that you submit to their control. Don’t.

In the post-truth world, anything goes. Chaos reigns. Those who create the chaos manifest their means of control. Do not comply. Do not give them one inch. Stand your ground. Hold the line.

Quitting crack cocaine

I’ve created and deleted Facebook accounts four or five times over the years. I just deleted the most recent, and I hope I possess the moral fiber to stop altogether, to not be drawn back like a toothless, crackhead skank on a dark, rainy, ghetto street corner.

What prompted the latest deletion? The video above. It’s one of Tucker Carlson’s better videos, and that is saying a lot because his programs are superlative.

That so many otherwise intelligent people, and I’m referring to the politically conservative, stubbornly embrace their FB pages (or Twitter accounts) is disturbing, but I understand why. I was there. The crafty Big Tech giants have developed a powerful cocaine. The cocaine makes you go there, keeps you there, and then uses and abuses you till you’ve dropped a third of your body weight, and your teeth are brown and rotten. And you smell bad.

The cocaine makes you go there, keeps you there, and then uses and abuses you.

Having a Facebook or Twitter account is enabling them because their power is based solely on the massive number of accounts they possess. Without accounts, they would fade away like Myspace, Excite.com and Netscape Navigator, all of which still exist but are sad shadows of their former selves.

Tucker is discussing Big Tech power and censorship, and what it’s doing with and to us, all of which is more important now that they are corrupting the American electoral system while addressing congressional hearings with straight faces.

There are Facebook and Twitter alternatives that are growing significantly. For Twitter, go to Gab instead. For Facebook, go to MeWe. Parler is being hyped as an alternative to them both. I opened a Parler account, but find the daily sign-in process too ponderous.

Better to go to Gab in part due to its working smoothly but, more so, due to the outrageous attacks it has suffered since its birth in 2016. The propaganda campaign launched by Big Tech has been astounding. Currently, you cannot send money to Gab via PayPal, nor can you use a credit card. Gab cannot be monetized in any way because it’s all been blocked by Big Tech thugs. The only way to financially assist Gab is by personal check or Bitcoin.

The leftist attack on Gab extends to the personal accounts of its founder and CEO Andrew Torba, a devout Christian whose family credit cards have been canceled by Big Tech, all because Gab embraces free speech. You can say anything on Gab that is not illegal.

This drives the censors of Big Tech bonkers, and Gab grows bigger by the day, especially since this month’s election fraud. Due to the initial propaganda that Gab was a social media dedicated to Nazis and other unsavory sorts, Gab fairly recently made it possible to view the website before joining. That was not the case at the get-go, likely a bad decision.

I do little on Gab, but it’s good to provide moral support by opening an account, and to not provide moral support to internet mammoths like Facebook, though I know you will justify your staying put. It’s where all your buds are. Family too.

I have been there. But now I am clean. In short time, my weight will return to normal, my breath will smell fresher, and my eyes will clear up.
