Great stuff, Caitlin.
I have a confession: Though a lifelong reader of the likes of Zinn and Chomsky with the understanding of U.S. meddling in and overthrowing of Leftist Latin American countries, I was distracted the other morning over breakfast and thus parroted the oligarch-owned media narrative about “election fraud” that this article so brilliantly deconstructs and destroys.
Point is, work like this is vitally important, even for those who may be in the choir you are preaching to, because sometimes we forget that the Fog of Confusion is being laid on thick and heavy all across this globe by those who wish to keep We the People in chains.
We need MORE independent, “punk” ethics journalists like Caitlin Johnstone. I’m happy to say I’ll be joining the fray, gearing up now as my 15-year job winds down to April 2020 and then will do my part to tell non-corrupted, independent stories about this crazy, fascinating world we all live in.
I saw Caitlin called for this in her inspiring “Demands” post a few weeks back. I’d already made the decision but was in a period of doubt when I read those words and that reminded me to keep the faith.
I’ll close by imploring those of you who find writers like Caitlin valuable to throw her a bone from time to time. If media consumers can take more responsibility in financially supporting the media they consume, we have a chance to continue putting serious dents in the holes of the elite narratives.
