Certain phrases increase our anxiety. One that really hits our subconscious is “mysterious death”. Social media are overrun with stories of “mysterious deaths”. Good examples are the “mysterious deaths” of thirteen holistic doctors, or tens of bankers, or hundreds of scientists.
Contemporary history is littered with suspicious deaths. Governmental related “mysterious deaths” include: the most recent entry, Justice Scalia; FBI Directors, William Sullivan and Louis Freeh (an almost), CIA directors William Colby and William Casey; White House related, Ron Brown and Vince Foster; Senators Paul Wellstone, John Heinz, and John Tower (all plane crashes with the latter two within 24 hours of each other) and Congressmen Leo Ryan, Larry McDonald, and Hale Boggs.
Mobsters are always dying, but several died just before they would have to publicly speak about the JFK murder. Sam Giancana was hit in his basement, and Johnny Roselli ended up floating in an oil drum in Biscayne Bay, his body cut in half.
Famous people who died mysteriously include: John Lennon, Dorothys Hunt and Kilgallen, Marilyn Monroe, Malcom X, Natalie Wood, Sonny Bono, JFK Jr. and Princess Di.
Investigative reporters Michael Hastings, Danny Casolaro, and many other brave snoops have died and slipped into our collective memory hole.
Of course, the table was set over fifty years ago with the “mysterious deaths” of RFK, MLK, and JFK with a side of Oswald-Ruby and a mysterious murder-smorgasbord of hundreds of follow-up deaths. Toss in 3,000 9/11 deaths and a variety of mass shootings, and you have a recipe for the creation of massive paranoia or reality unawareness depending on your outlook.
Motives for these deaths are often related to hiding other crimes; exposing pedophiles in powerful positions; stopping technological progress to maintain the status quo in the energy or medical industries; or they are related to the 1963 American coup d’état.
In addition to the array of talented dogs and cats, the mindless Kardashiantics, and the incessant political bleating on Facebook and Twitter, never-ending conspiracy memes will continue to push our consciousness into a paralyzing state of numbness. What can we do? The real circumstances of the deaths of our leaders are ignored by our law enforcement system. Since many of these deaths appear to be murder or have other disturbing implications, and since the official investigations are obviously bogus or non-existent, the nation has become more paranoid and divided. The system has failed.
The official story is just that…a story. People know these official stories are lies. Few would deny that something fishy happened to Marilyn Monroe. A majority of people in America strongly believe that JFK was killed by conspirators. The whole 9/11 thing was so terrible that most people find comfort in the “official”, but ridiculous, conspiracy theory. The Sirhan Sirhan/RFK death story has more bullet “holes” than the official shooter could have created.
These “mysterious deaths” are only those that we recognize because of the societal effect of the murder or the prominence of the deceased, but most likely there are thousands of other “mysterious deaths” which go unnoticed.
Sadly, the system has effectively covered up the evil deeds. The JFK death is a perfect example. More than five decades have passed and the “Lone Nut Oswald” story still adorns our history textbooks, and it is still repeated by the main stream media to the exclusion of any other solution.
This will not change. The cover-up will continue. Inquiring minds are not going to change anything. Hundreds of Facebook Groups, active with well-meaning people working to expose the truth, will not prevail. The truth of all these murders will remain buried by the system. This should be understood. The politicians, the media, the church, the educational system, and the publishing industry will not change their stories…ever.
Does this mean we should be like the average German in World War 2? Did she wake up one day and ask the question: “What ever happened to Mrs. Goldberg? I don’t see her around anymore?” We should not be so naive. Nor should we waste energy to prove that our “Mrs. Goldberg” has been murdered. It is enough to know this and to know we are in a virtual police state. Somehow we should announce our disbelief. We should create an equivalent to the post-9/11 patriotic paradigm: the flagging waving, the jet plane flybys, and the endless hugging of footless soldiers. We should no longer honor this bizarre passion play created by W. Bush, Karl Rove, Paul Wolfowitz, and other maniacal nuts. We need a new script, a new banner, a new armband, a new voice which tells the world and especially those who run the corrupt and vile New American system: “We’re just not buying your stories anymore. We’re not going to revolt. We’re not going to march on Washington. We’re not going to file a lawsuit or protest. We are just done pretending. It’s over.”
