John Jones sits across from the psychiatrist.

Mr. Jones, I see your employer referred you.

Yes, Doctor. I was basically told that if I didn't seek treatment, I would be suspended. Perhaps fired.

Why? What did you do?

Nothing. I just told a co-worker the news is an illusion. She reported me to the Personnel officer.

The news is an illusion?

Yes. It's a realization I came to recently.


Well, it started one night when I watching an interview with a woman who was upset, because she was on a long waiting list for the vaccine. Looking at her, I suddenly realized she'd spent the whole afternoon preparing for the interview.


I could see she'd gone to her hairdresser. She probably had her nails done. She probably spent another hour picking out a dress from her closet.

You ASSUMED all that.

The most important fact, as far as she was concerned, was: she was on television.

You mean-

She was thinking: I'M ON TELEVISION.

I see. To her, that was more important than not having access to the vaccine.


And that's it, Mr. Jones? That's the illusion?

No. The next thing I realized was: THE NEWS IS ON TELEVISION.

Well, of course it is.

At that moment, I stopped believing.

You stopped believing in what?

The news.


Because it's just a person on television.

Don't you think, Mr. Jones, that your conclusion is an unwarranted leap?

The newsman started talking-after the interview-about vaccine hesitancy. He said experts were in agreement about the science. The vaccine is very safe.


Science is just "what's on television." That's the definition of science.

Try to walk that back, Mr. Jones. You're going too far. You're describing a delusion.

I don't think so.

I don't see, on the form you filled out, that you're taking any medications.

That's right.

What about recreational drug use?

I don't take any drugs.

Let me put it this way, Mr. Jones. If you stop believing in the news, what do you believe in?

I have to figure that out.

Something has to be considered authoritative.

I'm not sure what you mean.

Mr. Jones, people can't experience everything first-hand. Surely you understand that. What you can't experience you have to accept…from somewhere, from some source outside yourself.

And you think that source should be the news.

The news is an attempt to collect the best information possible.

I now see it as an attempt to be on television. A very successful attempt. It's a collaboration among many employees of the network. Their prime declaration is: WE'RE ON TELEVISION.

Mr. Jones, you have Delusional Disorder.

What is that?

It's a condition. People who have it have delusions.

What should I do about it?

The first thing-try just to watch the news. Try to…let it flow. Don't interrupt it, so to speak.

And if that doesn't work?

Then don't watch the news for a month or so. Stay away from it. Consider it a trigger for your condition. Which brings me to a question.

You want to know whether I have other delusions.


None I'm aware of. My life is otherwise normal. I have friends. I get along with my family.

You don't hear voices?


Do you get messages…for example, from God?

No. Look, Doctor, here's the situation. I like watching the news now. To see that something you thought was real isn't real at all…it's invigorating. I feel stronger after I watch it. Freer.

You could be having manic episodes.

You think I should go along to get long?

If it benefits you. Don't be so anxious to reject reality.

You think I should behave.

We're all in The Normal. A sane person understands that.

Do you believe in the news, Doctor?

Of course. It's a requirement of my job. It's a basic standard against which I can assess the sanity of a person.

Am I an unusual case?

Harvey, the Personnel man at your company, referred you to me because I see hundreds of people who've had your experience. It's my specialty. Bringing people back to SSI. The Stable Structure of Information.

There are other people like me?

Many. More all the time.

They don't believe in the news, either?

Correct. But there is a STRUCTURE called the news. A few billion people accept it. So they have common ground. We need common ground.

And I'm a deserter.

You're suffering from a selective fantasy.

I read alternative news websites.

I'm not surprised. Those websites need to be censored.


Because they lead people away from common ground. They divide society.

Even if they contain truth?

Truth is a cheap commodity. Vastly overrated. What matters is consensus. If we don't have that, we have various kinds of insurrections breaking out here, there, and everywhere.


Binds us together.

In a way, it sounds like you agree with me. The news is the news because it's on television.

Where else is the news going to take place?

Suppose the news says the COVID vaccine is safe and effective, but it isn't. It makes people fall over. Lots of people. They're injured. They die.

That's tragic, but frankly, it doesn't matter, Mr. Jones. Suppose a hundred million people decided the vaccine is dangerous. Tomorrow they might doubt the existence of the pandemic. Then, the next day, they might say viruses are a fiction.

Better if we all agree the moon is made of green cheese.

Better if we all accept and believe in television.

So psychiatry is a branch of television.

For certain patients, I prescribe eight hours of viewing a day. Mr. Jones, anyone who doesn't watch the news ought to be under close surveillance.

What? Why?

Because not watching the news amounts to what I call psychological insurrection. It can be a forerunner to physical insurrection.

Is that a joke?

We live in a collective. We pass, to each other, information. That information comes from the news. The news is the root of the collective.

You're talking about mind control.

I'm talking about your delusion.

Let me ask you something, Doctor. Suppose, just suppose I were an alien from another galaxy, and I came here to observe Earth civilization. I observed you, and I was shocked. You're treating people for so-called mental disorders, but you're quite mad. Insane.

I would say you don't understand how our civilization works. Consensus is our life blood. We must have it. Those who can't go along with the consensus need to be treated by a professional.

And I'm one of those people.

That's right.

Because I've come to the realization that the news is what's on television.

Because you've stopped believing in the news.

And you're going to help me restore my belief?

I'm going to try.

And if you fail?

I'll tell you that you should be shunned. You could infect others with your delusion.

You'll recommend that my company fire me?

If you go along with therapy, and take the medication I prescribe, I'll report that you have an "immunity certificate."

I thought the certificate was just for vaccination.

The uses for the certificate are expanding. Did you vote for Donald Trump?

I didn't vote.

If you had voted for him, you could lose your immunity status. Have you made public statements criticizing COVID science?


Well that's good. We're clamping down, Mr. Jones. The resistance to the consensus is nearing a danger point. So we have to respond.

And as you clamp down, how will I know what to say and what not to say?

Watch television.

Are you on television?

Think of me as behind television. Nurturing it.

When did you stop being human?

When I was nine.

What happened?

I realized being human was a disadvantage. Much better if I took up a position outside humanity, where I could analyze behavior and thought. That's where status is. And a higher level of personal success.

And you're happy with that?

Of course. Civilization needs people like me. Again, I mention consensus. I help push people into common ground. People need to be spun in a blender, so they all come together in accord. The details of what they agree on don't really matter.

And the news is that blender.

It's the best one invented so far.

So far?

Electronics, nanoparticles-we're making advances in controlling the brain. But the news-it's meat and potatoes. A basic. It's the school everyone must attend.

Which brings me back to my original idea. The news is what's on television. If it weren't on television, it wouldn't be the news.

If you keep that up, you'll face excommunication. You'll be labeled a heretic.

If I had any sense, I'd try to land a job with one of the major news networks.

If you succeeded, ten years from now you'd look back on these days and you wouldn't recognize who you were. That person would be gone. You'd feel secure. You'd know you had matured.

I once had a dream I was sitting at an anchor's desk. I was reporting the news.

It's never too late, Mr. Jones. That's my motto.

I would sit there at the anchor's desk talking to millions of people, and I'd think, I'M ON TELEVISION, AND IT DOESN'T MATTER WHAT I SAY. WHATEVER I SAY IS NEWS.

Exactly. And if you could keep that thought and not lose it; if you could avoid believing that what you're telling people is true, if you could put aside TRUE and FALSE, you'd be home free. You'd have an experience few people could imagine.

So you agree with me, Doctor. The news is what's on television.

I never said I disagreed, Mr. Jones. Your delusion is thinking that's a problem. You just need to shift your point of view. Don't be the patient, be the doctor.

Don't be the victim, be the master.

Don't be the tricked, be the trickster.

Don't be the penitent, be the priest.

Don't be the viewer, be the anchor.

So it's all a game, Doctor.

Everything is, Mr. Jones. Do you want to play the game, or do you want to sell it and let others play it?

Is this therapy, Doctor, or an initiation into a secret society?

What do you want it to be, Mr. Jones?

    The real enemy is the uncontrolled mind of the species homo sap. save yourself, know thyself.

    But why they fear exposure? They have an army that protects them.

    Great letter to your friend who I suspect is too cognitively dissonanced to benefit from the truth that you're sharing with him. I consider modern psychiatry to be voodoo science that entails the dispensing of mind destroying potions based on a totally delusional belief that mental illness is a result of a mysterious chemical imbalance in the brain that can be remedied by the ingestion of those potions. Dr. Peter Breggin and Dr. Kelly Brogan are both wholistic psychiatrists who have totally demolished the psychotropic medication treatment paradigm of modern psychiatry.

    Asked to give a toast before the prestigious New York Press Club in 1880, John Swinton, the former Chief of Staff at the New York Sun, made this candid confession [it's worth noting that Swinton was called "The Dean of His Profession" by other newsmen, who admired him greatly]:
    " There is no such thing, at this date of the world's history, as an independent press. You know it and I know it. There is not one of you who dares to write your honest opinions, and if you did, you know beforehand that it would never appear in print. I am paid weekly for keeping my honest opinions out of the paper I am connected with. Others of you are paid similar salaries for similar things, and any of you who would be so foolish as to write honest opinions would be out on the streets looking for another job. If I allowed my honest opinions to appear in one issue of my paper, before twenty-four hours my occupation would be gone. The business of the journalist is to destroy the truth; to lie outright; to pervert; to vilify; to fawn at the feet of Mammon, and to sell the country for his daily bread. You know it and I know it and what folly is this toasting an independent press. We are the tools and vassals of the rich men behind the scenes. We are the jumping jacks, they pull the strings and we dance. Our talents, our possibilities and our lives are all the property of other men. We are intellectual prostitutes. "

    I can imagine Ken Nordine doing a reading of this – would've been perfect for him. Also reminds me of Harlan Ellison's The Glass Teat.

    'They' are very efficient at NOT being named. I could write the name of a disowned, former Rothschild heiress, but nobody here would recognize her – because she has never appeared in the 'news', nor does she reveal her family connections to most of her acquaintances. A friend of mine referred to these people as "top-out-of-sight" folks. Their private family trusts have clauses that REQUIRE trustees to never reveal the beneficiaries – even to 'trust-busting' judges – upon conditions that would bankrupt the revelator. Other techniques include multi-level business trusts that go at least seven deep – after which even (VERY unaware) IRS auditors give up, because it just costs too much time and resources. The one thing they fear the most is exposure. So we peons will never find out who they are, except by accident, design (when being recruited for their purposes), or very careful, 'extralegal' means.

    But even THEY have 'superiors'. And those cannot be discovered by (almost) any means, except through methods taught only to a very few, nowadays, which, it is being reported, are becoming less and less effective.

    @Greg C – and 'law' is created (scripted?) by politicians and 'practiced' in courts . . .

    So, nobody has any ideea. yes. There are few big funds that own most corporation. But the head is above. It controls all states, UN, FED, ECB, corporations… all are working like an army. if you try to organize 10 people you will see how hard it is to make them work together. What we have here, is millions of people working like a machine

    Your Chinese friend is correct. However the planet herself is currently vibrating in the 4th dimension, as are all of the beings on her, including humans. 4d is the home of the astral realms, the good, bad and the ugly can reside there. It is the realm we enter in the dream state, where anything can happen. This explains why the global situation appears so surreal to all of us, like a dream and lately more like a nightmare. When we die, we wake up. Or you can wake up without dropping your body if you know how, also a choice.

    Greg C. Wed, 24 Mar 2021 13:02:06 +0000

    YES! Also, medicine is what goes on in hospitals. Education is what goes on in schools. Money is what gets put into and borrowed from banks. It's all a fantastic construct. You must believe.
