Fake Binaries

vocationalethics Mar 12, 2022

“One of the biggest obstacles in the way of humanity freeing itself from the Matrix is the widespread reluctance to face just how unreal our consensus “reality” has become. 

A fake “pandemic” based on a virus that only exists as a sequence of computer code is just the most visible aspect of our collective retreat from the verifiable and into the merely affirmed. 

 “Real” has become a badge we give to the invented narrative we most want to believe in. 

True real is too hard. Too shocking. Too complex. 

Binaries and slogans are easier on our bruised minds. They ask nothing of us but our loyalty.” OffGuardian

Fake binary

“The smart way to keep people passive and obedient is to strictly limit the spectrum of acceptable opinion, but allow very lively debate within that spectrum – even encourage the more critical and dissident views. That gives people the sense that there’s free thinking going on, while all the time the presuppositions of the system are being reinforced by the limits put on the range of the debate.” Noam Chomsky

Chomsky is talking about “fake binary”

A fake binary allows you to not just manipulate the conformist’s who automatically obey, but also those who consider themselves to be ‘anti-establishment’, contrarians or ‘rebels’.

  • The imposition of the idea that Viewpoint A is the official approved narrative and that Viewpoint B is therefore its antithesis.
  • Points C through Z therefore being ignored. Despite Viewpoint A and Viewpoint B actually reinforcing the overarching narrative being sold and both leading to the same place.

Fake binaries are a godsend to the opinion-managers.

How are fake binaries created?

They are often initially introduced by the following methods…

Using the legacy media to widely publicise Viewpoint B while appearing to deny, refute or ridicule it.

“Leaking” allegedly confidential documents that “expose” Viewpoint B as the “hidden truth”. This is usually done through the legacy media, though it’s more effective if you can seed it through the indy media sector.

Creating entities that are tagged as “anti-establishment” but given a mass following, and feeding them Viewpoint B material.

Once Viewpoint B becomes a dominant “anti-establishment” view you can afford to sit back and allow the oppositional instinct in human nature to do your work for you, and reinforce the fake binary you created without the slightest awareness this is what is happening.

It becomes widely understood that the only solution to the obvious and real evils of Viewpoint A is Viewpoint B.

The fact Viewpoint B actually concedes all the same falsehoods contained in Viewpoint A remains unnoticed and anyone pointing this out tends to be attacked by both sides.

“Stop arguing about the existence of the virus”

“It all comes back to the fake binary, the illusion of difference and delusion of choice.

Resolution is not desired. Instead, Team A will encourage us to blame Team B, and vice versa.

Both narratives will be fed just enough to keep the argument going for as long as required and in any direction chosen.

That’s the nature of the false binary, its very purpose, to divide and distract and create controlled dissent alongside managed controversy.” – Kit Knightly
