    The amount of questioning and skepticism that Blake displays towards anything outside of the mainstream narrative, that is the amount of questioning and skepticism that we all ought to have of the mainstream narrative. Blake and ChumpDumper are the perfect NPC's that the establishment wants.

    Spurtacular amirite about Chumpettes?
    You never question your youtube videos with the cool background synthesizer music.

    Never.

    You're a perfect example of a tin foil hatter

    I think we all start off thinking that "our side" is good and the only way. The other side is evil. It's not just leftists who do that. The right does it too. For example, the left has valid criticism of US foreign policy and how AIPAC influences US foreign policy but the right doesn't like hearing that. They'll just call you unpatriotic or anti-semitic and shove their heads in the sand. Same with the left when it comes to immigration they'll just call you a racist and shove their head in the sand.

    That cognitive dissonance displayed by both sides is a byproduct of our two party failed system. That knee jerk reaction of both sides to oppose each other on almost everything is insanity - doing the same thing over and over expecting different results. It's all by design by the powers that be.

    What's even scarier is that people never wake up from the left vs right false paradigm. Some people go to their graves thinking that Israel is our greatest ally. That is sad and scary.
    The problem for you is that you have declared to take a side. Now all anyone sees from you is bias and spam.

    It amazes me really. I was a republican all my life and intense for a few years when I first started to really follow politics in college and into my 20's. Its hard at first to accept that the other side has truth and validity, particularly when you have biased media continually perpetuating and stoking the arguments. The game is easy to see once you step out of it and realize there are powers that you never knew existed and what their motives are.
    What powers are you talking about exactly?

    Powers that run this world IMHO:

    - world banking cabal (IMF, World Bank, Bank of England, and Federal Reserve) and Israel through our military.

    Banking IMO is the biggest. I am not as inclined as TGY to label this elite group as the "Jews", however I would agree that they make up a large portion of the positions of influence. I would also say that some of the "jews" are only those that have claimed to be so and perhaps not truly ethnic Jews.

    These powers in the banking cabal, I believe own 90-95% of our media and control our sources of entertainment and what we are taught. Our central bank (Federal Reserve) which was given a monopoly on our currency and credit was intended to provide economic stability. Instead we have seen since 1913 (its inception) cycle after cycle of booms and busts creating wealth transfer at each bust. Our government just gave away another 6T+ and to who? Surely not any of us in here, and 1200.00 doesn't even begin to count. Then you have inflation. We have been raped for the last 100 plus years. You, me, and everyone else in this forum as well as our families and other countries.

    No one in this country believes in or would tolerate a monopoly, right? Yet we have given a private ins ution the power to provide our only means of exchange for goods and services and how we pay taxes. That to me is enemy number one.

    who doesn't know powerful corrupt banks exist?

    I'd like to see your source that they own 90+% of the media

    Perhaps I am wrong, but I do believe we have an overall corrupt media.

    * a powerful bank

    You suggest that random banks around the world are corrupt, but for the most part serve people well? Or, that they are all corrupt but not necessarily linked in any way?

    From your link:

    "Given that “90% of the United States’ media is controlled by five media conglomerates,”"

    A media conglomerate is not a world bank.

    I'm not suggesting those things at all. The point now is that you made a claim, I asked you to back it up and you yourself with your own link.

    A huge problem in this country is people like you that talk out of your ass.

    okay, so you believe these five conglomerates are separate? Do you know who the share holders are? Is it possible that those who own the media also own the banks? I would honestly like to know what you feel or KNOW what the ownership structure is

    I understand your points but the concept of "profit driven motive" isn't a novel one and it's not noteworthy. In a capitalist country where the ability to trick others into buying for more than it's worth is seen as being financially savvy, the complaints about big business/banking/etc.. falls on deaf ears. The idea is that you can be in that "circle" if you make good choices and work hard. It's not guaranteed but it's still reachable. That doesn't address the overall ing of the population but then that's how capitalism works. If you're concerned about everyone, become socialist.

    Gender. Male. NPC (/ɛnpisi/; each letter separately), derived from Non-Player Character in video games, is an Internet meme that expresses the idea that individuals on the political left do not think for themselves; it is also known as NPC Wojak.

    Sounds about right.

    I am not sure what you are referring to. I was stating that there is a centralized bank that is corrupt and asking him if he felt corruption was dispersed but not related.

    i agree that in our system you can make your way to be well off by playing the game, but I believe the “circle” is beyond anyone’s reach unless you are born into it.

    Capitalism has been dead for a long time. Like socialism, it’s only as good as the government that administers it. I’m not defending either, but socialism can be just as bad if it’s run by the same people.

    Neither you or anyone else can say those five conglomerates are not owned by the same people.

    So I apologize if I offended you in some way, but my overall point is that the media never breathes a word about how we are slaves to a debt based monetary system owned by the elite of this world. I would say it’s safe to say they are at least on the same team. I’m not really sure how that can be so offensive

    BINGO. I would add that we can have the best of both worlds - Democratic Socialism. I would prefer national socialism but I know that word has very bad connotations. We need a government that works for the people. That is clearly not the case here in the US.

    But as I stated before, our system is broken beyond repair. We need a revolution and overthrow the current system.

    So you're making up but then whine about the media not giving you the truth.

    Lol "prove muh negative!!"
