If you think echo chambers are bad, you're a brainwashed idiot (2023)

I make a list of impossible phrases that purport to embody hard-earned wisdom but are actually lazy, ignorant clichés that actually do the enemy's work for them. One is, "Given the choice between hunting and conspiracy, I am always inclined to blame the hunting." Another reads, "I don't believe in investing in things I don't understand." But what I want to address today is, "We don't want this group to become an echo chamber."

Wait? What? I like 'echo chambers'. I think "echo chambers" is the way to go. Not only are they where most of us are naturally most comfortable (among our own kind, in a unit similar to our family), but they're also where we're most likely to be able to think independently. , productive.

Let me explain this using my broadcasting career. For years, especially in my early days as a print journalist, I longed to be on TV (and radio) because I imagined it to be more glamorous and possibly more lucrative. That's why I've almost never turned down an invite to one of these political talk shows, usually on the BBC, because until recently it was pretty much the only option, although I've always felt a bit dirty and upset about the experience. . .

I'm sure I could pull off a modest victory or two: a witty, scathing line I allegedly used to dominate the opposition and that people were happy to share on social media. More often than not, however, I came away from these wireless or screen encounters bruised, bloodied, and pathetically grateful if I could scrape off a nude drawing. I have seldom, if ever, won a satisfactory victory.

At first I put my disappointment down to inexperience. "One day you'll get really good at these things and it will show," I said to myself. But somehow that glorious moment never happened.

Perhaps, I began to wonder, was God trying to tell me that I wasn't a natural? Which is quite possible, I admit. But if so, why is my podcast so incredibly good?

No, the real problem, as I now realize that I've given up mainstream broadcasting entirely, is the confrontational format in which politics, yes most social issues, are treated like a Punch and Judy show where two antagonists fight each other.

An example would be the “why is this lying bastard lying to me” interview approach embraced by the likes of Jeremy Paxman. Another would be that TV show hosted by Andrew Neil, with allegedly far-right Thatcher Michael Portillo on one side and far-left Diane Abbott on the other.

This formula has become so commonplace on mainstream television that most people don't even realize there's an alternative. Every once in a while someone will suggest that I invite a totally inappropriate guest to my podcast whose views I don't share.

"But what would be the point?" Sometimes I reply when I'm in polite mode. [Or, 'Have you heard the podcast?' if I don't know him.] If my opponent were someone more experienced, articulate, and raunchy, it would just be a dodge exercise. Otherwise it would be pure confrontation, which may be fun for viewers and listeners, but is just stressful, uncomfortable and ultimately sterile for those involved.

The contrasting format not only generates more heat than light, but also seems a bit more insidious and dangerous. Yes, obviously it's pushing viewer buttons and generating headlines in newspapers and social media. But their main purpose is to stifle genuine debate and discussion by setting up false contradictions.

I have regularly observed the process at work, appearing on the BBC's main political talk shows, Any Questions (the radio version) and Question Time (the TV version).
Invariably, I found myself on a panel that claimed to come from different parts of the political spectrum: an environmentalist; a worker; a conservative; and a regional SNP politician or Plaid Cymru, shall we say, only to find that they were all singing the same score while I was alone.

"But you should be a Tory! Why don't you tell straight house truths openly like me? I wanted to tell my conservative parliamentary co-panel that every time, as he or she often did, they let down the side with even softer, more life-saving mush.

What I didn't really appreciate then, although I do now, is that I wasn't really asked to give my opinion proper attention. Instead, I was there to be exposed as the madman whose job it was to be publicly humiliated. By example from me and people like me, organizations like the BBC, essentially the propaganda arm of the Deep State, can send a signal to their audiences about which views are acceptable and which are not.

Do not get me wrong. I'm not saying that if you're sane and have the wind behind you, it's impossible to get a good point or two across with plenty of viewers and listeners at home (though probably not in the left-leaning studio). . audience) agree. What I am saying is that you are always on the defensive and the odds are against you because all the other speakers and the moderator are on the other side.

No matter what label they wear (conservative, green, SNP, whatever), they all belong to the same rogue system that believes that a little more power and a little more of your money can make the world a better place. I suspect most ordinary people would resist this trend once they understood what's really going on. But they often don't because the nature of the debate has been relentlessly misrepresented by the media.

Not to mention left-right politics, which I think is an irrelevant distraction, part of the scam. What I am talking about here is the unrelenting war on the individual, tradition, liberty, family, national identity, religious belief, etc. for a globalist and collectivist agenda. I think most of us are in the old camp. But the views you see represented in the mainstream media are broadly in line with the latter. This creates a completely distorted impression of where the "central reason" really lies. Normal people with normal views are convinced that their reasonable position is abnormal.

This is essentially the Hegelian dialectic. And it's stunningly effective. Take green issues for example. I hope that if ever asked, the vast majority of people here and elsewhere would agree with my stance on the environment: “Yes, I love nature, but I also love driving, going on vacation and I can afford my home heat." I think we can all agree that this is definitely not the position that's being put forward most often in our newspapers and on mainstream TV and radio...

This is on purpose, not by accident. For decades, at least since the 1992 Rio Earth Summit, the mainstream media has promoted the narrative chosen by the Predator class that the planet is doomed, that everything is our fault and no price is too high to pay. Pay without taking extreme measures to counter this threat. The evidence to support this thesis was tenuous at best and non-existent at worst. But, as Goebbels and others knew, if you make the lie big enough and repeat it often enough, it will eventually attain accepted wisdom status.

That's why I'm such a fan of "echo chambers" - they're the polar opposite of what our dark lords need and want to achieve their nefarious ends. It wouldn't surprise me if the author of the "we don't want to live in an echo chamber" cliché actually works for the Cabal. A bit like the phrase "conspiracy theorist" or "anti-vaccinationist," it's calculated to stigmatize something that is actually wholesome and good.

It is the most natural thing in the world to want to be among like-minded people. When you have common interests and values, you can speak more freely than if you had to constantly question every comment so as not to offend anyone. Of course you can still have lively debates and disagreements, but the points you debate are more nuanced as opposed to the complete opposite, the two will never meet, the kind of arguments you see in the manipulative, underhanded, manipulated MSM find opponent format . .

Many people have been led to believe that the BBC's formula of, for example, pitting an Extinction Rebellion maniac against someone who thinks cars are more or less okay constitutes something called 'balance'. They consume these things and congratulate themselves on getting both sides of the argument reasonable. That's why they think when they utter phrases like "We don't want to live in an echo chamber," because they're mature, knowledgeable, and open-minded. But it is not. Because they were brainwashed.
