Conspiracy and War on Sensemaking

1min Read: Opinion: Conspiracy and War on Sensemaking

You would be amiss to have not noticed there is a war on our ability to make sense of the world going on right now. The information wars are raging in the western world. The war on reality, the war on facts and the idea of fake news and “alternative facts” has become prevalent.

Trump is the most obvious and outspoken spokesperson for this, but he is not working alone, and it is not only the far right that that is adding to…

Estimated 4 minutes read: Controlling the Narratives and the Weaponization of Language in 2020 

It doesn’t take a behavioural linguistic analysis of government's narratives and the systems of control of information around Covid-19 to see what is going on. 

Even using the words/labels “Covid-19” or “CoronaVirus” could, and probably will get this article flagged and suppressed when posted on social media and in search engine…

Estimated 3 minutes read: Coronavirus Information Overload: facts, information, misinformation and disinformation how do we make sense of which is which?  

The times we live in are riddled with information overload. From the mass media outlets that are arguably "real news", even though they are famed for their clickbait headlines, through to fake news. Government and health authority information sites and those from trusted sources being ignored whilst social media posts from some…

Maybe it was your fault

What if it was your fault?

I mean really. What if?

You try to pretend you are above it all.

That it was all "them".

But what if you drove them to it?

What if their madness is your sanity? Or something like that.

You look back over a year of ‘what the fuck’ and you think what’s the fucking point. If no one gives a fuck why should you?

you ain't ever going back! but drip drip drip its starts and soon it seeps in deep.

Too deep.

Distracted

The world is spiralling out of control. We are entering into corporate colonialism with big tech running the show. With every man, woman, child and others on the planet is the very product sold on the open market. With every keystroke, every like and every email bits of data are stored up on a cloud somewhere in the stratosphere only to never rain down on the parched lands below. Segmentation. Polarisation. Segregation. Identity politics is weaponised. Censorship is weaponised by the cult of…

The cult of conspiracy

The cult of conspiracy ravages within the echo chambers of social media. Painting the wall monochrome with the blood of the naysayer. Leaving the stale scent of resentment for all that do not believe. A warning sign for all that should doubt, with the head of John the Baptist, placed out front with a spike shafted up through his neck and out through his left eyeball. The crime? He wasn’t an anti vaxer, he was a baptiser of tax collectors, working for a higher cause of course. People have…

Marketing Mentalist / AKA Sam's Tweets

You could be forgiven for thinking the government has treated the pandemic as an opportunity to reward its friends, says researcher Sophie Hill The Tories have undoubtedly seen this pandemic as an opportunity. An opportunity to exploit the system and the good will of the people in order to line the pockets of their friends and dismantle parts of the NHS "It’s remarkable that the government has managed to squander so much goodwill so quickly – all while paying huge sums to PR firms to work…

Black Lives Matter: 3 words that shouldn’t need saying in 2020 but sadly do 

After witnessing the horrible death of George Floyd at the hands of a sadistic police officer, as we all have, on social media, the Black Lives Matter movement and subsequent protests have ricocheted around the world.  

As a white male, I am not even going to begin to pretend I understand the lived experience of people of colour either in my home country, the UK, or the US. What I do know is that I am…
