The Allegory Of The Cave

The Allegory of the Cave

The Allegory of the Cave, also commonly known as Myth of the Cave, Metaphor of the Cave, The Cave Analogy, or the Parable of the Cave, is an allegory used by the Greek philosopher Plato in his work The Republic to illustrate “our nature in its education and want of education”. (514a) The allegory of the cave is written as a fictional dialogue between Plato’s teacher Socrates and Plato’s brother Glaucon, at the beginning of Book VII (514a520a).

Plato imagines a group of people who have lived chained in a cave all of their lives, facing a blank wall. The people watch shadows projected on the wall by things passing in front of the cave entrance, and begin to ascribe forms to these shadows. According to Plato, the shadows are as close as the prisoners get to seeing reality. He then explains how the philosopher is like a prisoner who is freed from the cave and comes to understand that the shadows on the wall are not constitutive of reality at all, as he can perceive the true form of reality rather than the mere shadows seen by the prisoners.

The Allegory is related to Plato’s Theory of Forms,[1] wherein Plato asserts that “Forms” (or “Ideas”), and not the material world of change known to us through sensation, possess the highest and most fundamental kind of reality. Only knowledge of the Forms constitutes real knowledge.[2] In addition, the allegory of the cave is an attempt to explain the philosopher’s place in society.

The Allegory of the Cave is related to Plato’s metaphor of the sun (507b509c) and the analogy of the divided line (509d513e), which immediately precede it at the end of Book VI. Allegories are summarized in the viewpoint of dialectic at the end of Book VII and VIII (531d-534e). This relates to the idea of forms as people struggle to see the reality beyond illusion.

Staged ISIS Videos Exemplify Fake News

Thumbnail for 19617

ISIS, ISIS, baby!

Jay Dyer | The Rundown Live

This week’s media circus witnessed the upstaging of the celebrity boob hack with a new ISIS “beheading” video of “journalist” Steven Sotloff. If you follow me on FB or Twitter, you know I immediately called the Foley video as a fake, not because I have some secret inside source or because of any advanced technical analysis of digital imagery, but because the videos are cartoonishly fake. Unlike the comical North Korean “space program” photos, which apparently no one but JaysAnalysis has questioned, this time around, people are catching on, as both ISIS videos have begun to be seriously questioned by major media and experts. Readers will recall that I have been on the forefront of calling out fake, staged news for several years now, with little appreciation. Sadly, rather than utilizing their own minds and critical thinking, the public will only consider questioning a major story’s validity when “experts” (whoever they are) tell them it is orthodox to do so.

Since the first Foley video has emerged, it has come to light that Foley the “journalist” was originally embedded as an intelligence officer as a USAID worker, a classic, obvious intelligence cover, as the Weekly Standard reported. The Washington Post reported in 2010 on this as follows:

“The most common, official CIA cover, is provided by the State Department, which permits operatives to carry out diplomatic duties in an American embassy by day and their real jobs by night: trying to get local officials and other foreign nationals to turn coat and secretly work for the CIA.Other U.S. government agencies provide cover as well. In South Vietnam, the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) provided cover for CIA operatives so widely that the two became almost synonymous.

In recent decades the agency has often said it was deploying more “NOCs,” or officers under non-official cover. U.S. multinational companies — banks, oil companies, airlines, construction firms — are generally happy to help the CIA, on patriotic grounds, with legitimate-looking jobs for its operatives.”

GlobalResearch explains of this front, which uses the classical phony promotion of “democracy”:

London battles Moscow. London battles Moscow.

“They were even involved in Russia during the neoliberal Yeltsin disaster. USAID funded Chubais through public-private organizations and a Harvard program that was so patently corrupt, Harvard and its program directors including economist Andrei Shleifer were sued by the US Department of Justice for “conspiring to defraud” the US government (not to mention Russians). USAID also paid public relations giant Burson-Marsteller to sell the disastrous voucher program to the Russian public, in a mass media advertising blitz that promoted Chubais’ political party on the eve of parliamentary elections. It was this USAID funded privatization, and the USAID-backed Russia “democrats,” which soured Russians on market capitalism and democracy (renamed “dermokratsia” or “shitocracy” in Russian). Pando Daily

This USAID effort in Ukraine is nothing new. They’ve been at this trick for years and years going back to a time when President Peace Prize was a toddler at his mother’s side in Indonesia working for another IMF/World Bank creation; one of the most brutal dictators in human history, Suharto (an argument can be made also for our “darling dictator” of Rwanda, Paul Kagame).”

I guess the Washington Post is now a conspiracy rag, since this is something alt media sites like JaysAnalysis have been saying – and it’s no different from the staged Malaysian plane “attack” in Ukraine or Bowe Bergdahl or Kony or any other ridiculous mass news fable. It’s not an arrangement that pleases legitimate State Department diplomats, who complain that they’re put at risk by the practice. The video itself demonstrated all the hallmarks of intelligence scripting: cheesy lines, low production value, over the top antics and no actual killing! The key indicator is that no one is actually killed in the video, all that is shown is a picture of some body or dummy. The second video was also linked to the Western intelligence-connected agency SITE, which appreared to have the video before ISIS.

Recall also that the Washington Post discussed the staging of Bin Laden videos:

“The agency actually did make a video purporting to show Osama bin Laden and his cronies sitting around a campfire swigging bottles of liquor and savoring their conquests with boys, one of the former CIA officers recalled, chuckling at the memory,” the article states. “The actors were drawn from ‘some of us darker-skinned employees.’”

In its never-ending propaganda spew, Washington and its intelligence agencies (read “journalists”) foist endless staged scenarios on the ignorant public with tireless energy. Once your eyes are opened, it is genuinely an amazing sight to see – how does anyone continually fall for this? The videos and the operations aren’t even well made, which, though hard to believe at first, is also done on purpose. It is a fundamental doctrine of psychological warfare that the propaganda must necessarily be dumbed-down and goofy.

Rehash the same script. Rehash the same script.

It is also important to remember the context for this whole Al Qaeda fiasco, which is the Great Game of the last hundred years of British intelligence espionage, where radical Jihadis were created under the tutelage of Lawrence of Arabia and the lords of London. The Empire carved up the Middle East, creating many of its modern states, such as Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, etc. The goal of all of London’s chess game was, and still is, the shadow control of all nations through its banks and operatives, and the crippling and containment of Russia. The Soviet engineering was a London/Wall Street export, as was the dialectical opposite, Al Qaeda in 1979, to subvert Russia from within and destabilize from without. This is the larger context for all the geo-political machinations we see at work today, all the way up to the ISIS crisis. And now, as the attempted attack on Syria was foiled, Washington and London seek to attack again, under the guise of the very group they funded.

The silly factor actually creates the cognitive dissonance effect in the viewing audience, most of whom never saw the actual “beheading” videos, which looked more like something from the Onion than anything a real international terrorist organization would produce. Indeed, the whole ISIS/IS entity has, as Patrick Henningsen wisely quipped, a “WWF character to it,” as even the DailyMail has reported. ISIS is also now involved in the now-expired Ferguson, MO fiasco, as 21stCenturyWire exposed. As the mass media blends its comic book narratives together into mixed Twilight Zone scripts, the next headline we can expect should enlighten informed citizens to the deepest, darkest truth: the Malaysian Plane was actually carrying the hacked Hollywood boob photos from Kony’s private collection to sex-starved ISIS operatives in Baghdad, where al-Baghdadi and his MI6 handlers can rate the titties. Would this story be any more unbelievable than the “normal” fake news? I don’t think so.

Fake Cell Towers Actually Download Your Cell Data And Conversations

celltower

Kristan T. Harris | The Rundown Live

There has been numerous reports of mysterious fake cell towers appearing around the United States. These towers however serve a more devious purpose. The towers are equipped with a state-of-the-art battlefield espionage device known as Stingray. No one has claimed ownership of these towers.

In an interviewed with The Popular Science Monthly Les Goldsmith, the CEO of ESD America and manufacturer of hi-spec encrypted smartphones aimed at businessmen who regularly visit cyber-crime hotspots Russia and China, revealed some concerning data reported by his customers.

It seems that a network of interceptor stations are already in place and installed around America.

The Stingray towers have been installed by the government with the intention to download data from all cell phone users in the area illegally for the Department of Homeland Security, local law enforcement and the NSA.

A warrant should have to be served in order to collect this kind of data.

Adam Kokesh Gets No Jail Time After Facing 15 Years For Loading A Shotgun

Kokesh takes plea, guilty to drug, weapons charges

Mike Paczesny | The Rundown Live

Activist Adam Kokesh received a suspended sentence for drug and gun-related convictions.

Kokesh calls the charges “political persecution.”

According to WashingtonPost:

“Violence itself is the greatest violation of freedom,” Kokesh told the judge. “I’m the opposite of dangerous.”

He added later: “I apologize to the commonwealth of Virginia and citizens of Herndon. This situation will never happen again.”

Fairfax County prosecutor Matthew Kapuscinski said, “This is not a case of political persecution or civil disobedience, It’s reckless and irresponsible.”

Kokesh recently appeared on The Rundown Live to talk about his book Freedom! and his 2020 Presidential run.

This Guy Is Serving Life In Prison For Buying A Few Pounds Of Weed

Thumbnail for 18404

The Rundown Live

Displaying the failure of the War on Drugs in one of its most heinous forms, a great-grandfather is currently serving life in prison in Missouri for purchasing seven pounds of cannabis two decades ago. He’s already served nearly 20 years for the offense.

Jeff Mizanskey is a repeat cannabis offender. He has three strikes, which are what landed him a life sentence, all for marijuana sales and purchasing.

Mizanskey says that he’s seen multiple murderers and rapists go in and out of prison, while he is stuck behind bars for a non-violent, victimless crime. This is why the ‘Land of the Free’ has the highest prison rates in the world; we imprison non-violent victimless “criminals” who are caught with a substance that a bureaucrat has deemed illegal. However these same bureaucrats have approved thousands of pharmaceutical drugs which in the real world cause much more harm than illegal drugs do. In fact, ‘legal’ drugs kill more Americans today than ‘illegal’ ones do, yet government thugs still put innocent people in cages for selling a natural plant.

His attorney is working on an effort to get people to write letters to Governor Nixon and contact his constituents’ office at 573-751-3222. You can also sign the petition to get Jeff Mizanskey pardoned here.

The people who should be in jail are anyone who enforces these laws and the lawmakers who have taken countless lives and liberties by passing unjust legislation. If there was no victim, then there was no crime. There’s really not much more to it. All non-violent drug offenders in jail should be set free.

Cannabis should have never been made illegal considering its many medical and industrial uses. Using cannabis has a very mellow high, which is clearly less dangerous than drinking alcohol or even smoking cigarettes. Oreos kill more people than marijuana, but that’s for another article. We’ve been lied to about cannabis for a long time.

Harder drugs such as meth and heroin, which are obviously terrible for your health, have not disappeared and wont go away by putting people in jail for doing them. Addiction to hard drugs is a health issue that must be treated as such; rehabilitation and treatment are the only ways to overcome drug addiction.

One thing is painfully clear: the ‘War on Drugs’ was a massive, harmful, racist, regressive, expensive failure and it’s time to end it.

Police Respond to “911 Calls About Man Wearing Suspicious Glasses And Hat”

Police Respond to “911 Calls about Man Wearing Suspicious Glasses and Hat”

Mike Paczesny | The Rundown Live

Forest Thomer has been known for being a free speech advocate and has even got into a few police altercations.

Wearing glasses, at a bus stop, with a few bags, in mid western America, warrants 2 separate 911 calls.

After going to a local bus stop for a trip to Chicago, police were called because his “sunglasses” and “hat” were reported as suspicious.

The officer explains to Thomer what he was doing was not illegal but was ‘suspicious‘ and that two 911 emergency calls were placed reporting him.

Forest was even recently featured on The Rundown Live talking about the police and his actions.
