Fake 'disaster' technology promoted in the news.

I am not sure what I can say about this, except that it seems to me that the perps are intentionally showing their hand by showing pictures that are in no way different from what we have come to expect in standard disaster-photo fare.

Again, I think this has to do with some sort of larger meta psyop, whereby the staged revealing of what is actually going on is controlled in order to have specific social-engineering aims.

Didnt really proofread the grammar in that post.

In any case, in what way is this different from sort of immersive or 'location' theater production? Maybe we are all sort of rushing onto the stage of 'hair' against our wills. 'this is the dawning of the aaaaage of aquarius'.

And then the news coverage is sort of like the catelogue entry that is 'sold' as the 'artwork' as memorial of a happening.

Perhaps in this context, we should be pointing accusatory fingers at the likes of Matthew Barney (for reasons other than his atrocious 'art').

Has anybody considered the role of cinema makeup departments and latex-horror and splatter films in giving us our visual cues for what disaster injuries should look like?

Should we think of David Cronenberg and his and related body-horror films in the perp category? Well, all cinema practically belongs there (but come to think of it, what role does a film like 'the fly' have in promoting DNA technology/Genetics-related bullshit?)

Except 'West of the Tracks' by Wang Bing. I liked that.
