Kim Kardashian Wears a $19 Dress Under a Designer Coat

Ahhhh, made you look.

Yes, Kim Kardashian has a closet that rivals most designer boutiques. But should we find it newsworthy that a reality TV star is wearing a dress she bought for less than $20.

Is this the best news we can get? I mean there are a lot of things going on in this world. Does it need to concern us what Kim Kardashian is wearing?

We are being distracted and this latest about Kim Kardashian among the different ways to grab our attention.

“When we’re being bombarded with wall-to-wall news coverage and news cycles that change every few days, it’s difficult to stay focused on one thing—namely, holding the government accountable to abiding by the rule of law—and the powers-that-be understand this.”

And while we all are caught up in the uproar over this year’s latest hullabaloo — we have neglected to see what is happening right before our eyes. We now have militarized police, we’ve allowed tanks on Main Street and nobody seems to be concerned of the increase in police related killings on Americas.

In fact, how many Americans have largely forgotten last year’s hullabaloo over the NSA and government surveillance? Not only have we forgotten, we’re generally foggy about everything that has happened in between.

Then again, so much has happened in the years since Edward Snowden first appeared on the scene that it’s understandable if the average American has a hard time keeping up with and remembering all of the “events,” manufactured or otherwise, which occur like clockwork and keep us distracted, deluded, amused, and insulated from the reality of the true American.

You should be mad as hell that a police officer choked someone to death. Why aren’t you?

Under these conditions there can be no thought. And, in fact, modern man does not think about current problems; he feels them. He reacts, but he does not understand them any more than he takes responsibility for them. He is even less capable of spotting any inconsistency between successive facts; man’s capacity to forget is unlimited. This is one of the most important and useful points for the propagandists, who can always be sure that a particular propaganda theme, statement, or event will be forgotten within a few weeks.”

No so long ago, we were treated to Justin Bieber’s run-in with police after a bout of reckless driving, the FBI’s investigation into the leaking of celebrities’ nude photos, Brad and Angelina’s wedding, Robin Williams’ unfortunate suicide, and the ALS ice bucket challenge sensation.

That was preceded by reports of immigrant children flooding over the border, Israel and Hamas’ on-again, off-again fighting, Ebola breakouts in West Africa, the Malaysian Airlines passenger jet crash in Ukraine, the exchange by the U.S. of five Taliban prisoners for Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, the growing legalization of same-sex marriage by the states, and the kidnapping of 280 Nigerian girls for use as sex slaves.

Before that, there was the shooting rampage by an Iraq war veteran at the Fort Hood Army base, the uproar over LA Clippers owner Donald Sterling’s racist remarks, the Veterans Administration’s failure to provide timely care to vets, Russia and the U.S. in a tug of war over control of Crimea, the disappearance of a Malaysia Airlines flight—this one en route to China, the 2014 Winter Olympics hosted by Russia, the Seattle Seahawks’ first ever win at the Super Bowl, Gov. Chris Christie’s role in the George Washington Bridge lane closings scandal, and the outpouring of tributes over the death of Nelson Mandela.

As I point out earlier in this blog: The Emerging American Police State, these sleight-of-hand distractions and diversions are how you control a population, either inadvertently or intentionally, advancing your agenda without much opposition from the citizenry.

There would be no end to the uproar if Americans understood the origins of ISIS, the latest in the government’s war on terror, whose funding appears to track back to the CIA, which helped fund its guerilla tactics in Syria.

So where does that leave us?

Unless we get up off our fat surpluses and recognize that television in the main is being used to distract, delude, amuse, and insulate us, then television and those who finance it, those who look at it, and those who work at it, may see a totally different picture too late.

If we do not awaken to the truth and open our eyes soon, then we may well find ourselves staring at a far different, far less pleasant picture before long, and by then, it will be too late to alter our reality.
