In times of universal deceit, telling
the truth is a revolutionary act.
         - George Orwell

Napoleon once observed that "history" is a set of lies agreed upon. In an era of ubiquitous fake news and information warfare, this has never been more true. The very concept of objective truth in history is fading out of our world. Pure propaganda and outright lies are passing into our history textbooks as unquestioned truth, condemning future generations to false views about historical reality. But the task of sifting through the lies and propaganda is overwhelming, limited by the ambition and time constraints of most observors. Only those who have dedicated their lives to sorting reality from falsehood are qualified to rewrite "consensus" history as a duty to humanity. The contributors to this site endeavor to do just that.

Lauren Southern: "Manufactured Heroes" Corrupt Our Humanitarian Instincts

        Lauren Southern is fast emerging as one of my favourite Canadian Truthseekers.  She has repeatedly shown the courage to stand up for what is right, as opposed to what is easy or popular.
In the video below, posted today (August 6th), Lauren describes the "Red Pill" moment in her life when she awoke to the sham of "manufactured heroes."  Her awakening came during a Christian "mission" trip to the Third World as a 16-year old, when she traveled to South America with a group of well-intentioned missionaries, ostensibly to help lift destitute people out of poverty.  What she learned is that most of what passes as "missionary" work amounts to little more than photo-ops for organizers to project an image of philanthropy, all the while soaking up the feel-good ego-trip that comes as a result of the self-deception that they were actually doing something positive for the less fortunate. Hearts would be warmed while nothing substantial gets accomplished.
Lauren came to realize that so many of our mainstream-media-promoted "heroes" pretending to do this "humanitarian" work are really just making people feel good about their financial contributions to the cause while they themselves line their pockets and garner popularity due to the projection of a manufactured humanitarian image.

 Public perceptions and reality differ sharply, leading Lauren to question everything about our public-relations-centred universe.  Greedy and ego-aggrandizing people are able to monetize the perception of their goodness, while the quiet workers out of the spotlight do all the hard work without recognition.  In her words,
 "Instead of actually going through the personal journey it requires to become the heroes of the fairy tale books that I loved, people were hired film crews and getting celebrity endorsements and forging a vacuous facade - a superficial imitation - of a hero in order to appear more virtuous and to make more money off that.  And it didn't really matter that they were lying through their teeth, and that their lies were hurting people, wht mattered was that the people in their community, in their country, in their society, believed those lies. And as long as those people felt all warm and fuzzy inside,... it was all dandy."

Please watch the following video to hear these ideas straight from Lauren Southern's mouth:
August 7th update:  Lauren has posted an equally powerful video critical of the LGBT community, which I wholeheartedly agree with:
