Spin Deception II

In Culture, Politics on April 4, 2018 at 10:02 am

Any discussion on modern spin deception cannot be complete without including its application in statecraft. With every passing moment, words are losing their meaning or rather getting underlying implications attached to their connotations.

Egypt held its presidential election in March of 2018. Incumbent President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi reemerged as the President elect. The whole process was deemed ‘farcical’. As all his opponents were intimidated, easily, considering he controls the military. As was the  case when el-Sisi garnered the post initially with the help of a military coup.

The same change is undergoing in democratic elections of Russia where Putin reemerged as the elected leader. The Indian subcontinent is no stranger to this phenomenon with the top public office more akin to the salon of its favorite dynasty, the Gandhi family. Oscillating itself to an autocrat summoning up communal support in the intervals, riling up Hindu sentiments specifically.

When there are no longer able, independent leaders stepping up to take the reigns, a tandemocracy embeds itself as an inherent feature of statecraft, with power transfer occurring between two certain candidates term after term. The subjects are passive enough to be taught this is the new normal.

Spin Deception

In Culture, Life, Politics on April 2, 2018 at 7:00 am

There’s no two-ways about it, we have truly evolved, not fruitfully, but substantially. This evolution is espoused in how our culture manifests around the entire circumference of our planet. Mankind has honed its guile along the way and replaced tools of physical violence with tools for spin & deception as its weapon of choice.

Structured application of this technique is found to be ingrained in litigious circumstances where judges and magistrates have to take decisions based on verifying deceptions. It is manifested in the form of literature and body-language of defendants and complainants. Plato’s Republic espouses a certain section of society anointed as Guardians to burden this task of verification.

In our present world, even judges employ  deceptions as they have personal stake in the outcome of many disputes. As not to appear duplicitous, Guardians, as per The Republic, are bred as a separate segment of widespread society, who do not engage in reproduction and wealth accumulation. And similar to all well-built, yet discarded directions for the well-being of a civilization, we follow the British legal system in majority of our nation-states, where a modern judge is no less culpable than the alleged criminal set for trial before him/her.

We just need to consider how the Australian cricketers have been manipulating mass media with concocted body language and spinned propaganda to spread a stage-managed aura of self-condemnation. A precedent is being set of the average citizen being converted into a thespian, albeit a mediocre attempt.  Till now it was only prevalent in courtrooms around the world. In our golden age of information, that practice of manufactured remorse to circumvent introspection has found a snug playhouse on the silverscreen.  This is the future we have already created and being continuously updated, of spinning half-truths into iron-clad facts, and stagehands working at breakneck speed to admonish any and all who points out just how naked the emperor really has become as time progressed.

WHO ARE YOU?

Really.

Who are you?

Of all the voices in your head, which is the real you?

The white wolf or the dark wolf?

The truth is you’re the one watching over those two wolves. You have the middle ground. You decide the feeding.

Only time will tell which wolf you turn out to be in the end.

There is no certainty to your final transformation. Your circumstances will guide you to make the choices that result in your final choice.

As your cyber shaman/guide, the only thing I can advise you is to listen to your instinct. Just breathe.

Everything around you is temporary and you’re destined to return to dust. It is important for you to accept your impending inevitable fate in order that you may take the right choice.

Godspeed, child.
