The Oligarchy: Our Brave New World

Medium/Angad Singh Oberoi

I believe in exactly one conspiracy theory: That there is a class of all-powerful elites with an unknowable measure of control over each of our lives — more power, influence, and control than we could ever know.

I believe it because it is unequivocally true. It can be proven. Easily. Because it is happening right in front of us. It's happening to us. We see it play out in the form of executive orders and media idolatry and

Yesterday I told you about the Oligarchy.

The Oligarchy is a snakes' nest: Global corporations bonded to the government in a twisted new religion. A religion, ironically, that is anti-religion. Because The Oligarchy can only exist if the masses disown God. If you take away a man's God, he will only replace it with something that is not God.

In place of God, they give us terror, burrowed inside convenience. Our unconsenting subordination to the Oligarchy is a form of worship. They tell us we enjoy subservience. They have convinced us. We have become a function of the Oligarchy. We depend on it for everything.

And by disowning God in favor of The Oligarchy, the individual disowns himself, he forgoes the chance of meaningful survival. As one psychologist put it, "society is the sum total of individuals in need of redemption."

The Oligarchy is a snakes' nest: Global corporations bonded to the government in a twisted new religion.

There are no individuals in The Oligarchy. Because it is just a shinier version of the Marxist idea of The State. And The State is just a high-minded attempt to hide corruption and to make evil men feel less bound for Hell. It's the same lineage.

But the Oligarchy is the worst iteration yet: It knows everything about you.

Think about that: the Oligarchy fuels itself on the death of your individuality. The Oligarchy wants you to consume endlessly. But it is a self-consumption: You're being asked to sacrifice yourself.

Secretly, we all sense this: Sales for 1984 have skyrocketed during the pandemic. We talk a lot about Orwell and 1984. And for good reason: the dystopia Orwell predicted is happening all around us. But that's only half of it. The other half is Huxley's Brave New World — which should be a required companion piece to 1984.

In 1984, society is forced to hold opposing and contradictory views in their heads at all times. Brave New World contains something worse than this cognitive dissonance. In Brave New World, the hapless citizens of The State are full of blissful self-cannibalism. Obedience, the result of a parasitic propaganda campaign that began before the citizens were born.

There is plenty of censorship, lots of forbidden literature, but unlike Fahrenheit 451 and 1984, people in Brave New World are excited to welcome the censorship. They become so inundated with useless and distracting information that they just stop processing any of it.

...unlike Fahrenheit 451 and 1984, people in Brave New World are excited to welcome the censorship.

The book is just as full of slogans as 1984, but the slogans are catchier, like ad copy: "History is bunk." And "Everyone works for everyone else. We can't do without anyone."

Their motto is "Community, Identity, Stability." The same exact creepy vagueness and manufactured warmth that you have seen play out over the last year. Hypocrisy so constant and obvious that it makes us question reality itself.

"Community, Identity, Stability" is a misnomer the same way that "AntiFa" is an inaccurate representation of "Anti-fascist." And not by mistake.

In Brave New World, people live by the motto: "Everyone belongs to everyone else."

Individuality doesn't exist. Everything is shared.

Monogamy is taboo. Even solitude is framed as psychotic.

Nothing can be "intense or long-drawn." Citizens are trained to avoid having "to live through a long-time-interval between the consciousness of a desire and its fulfillment," an event which they refer to as an "insurmountable obstacle."

They're told: "Take a holiday from reality whenever you like, and come back without so much as a headache or a mythology."

Which is code for "They want to take away collective human history."

The State, The Oligarchy, hold all the control, and the workers serve as their unwitting slaves. "Unwitting" is the key: The citizens cannot realize that they're being used.

It's a complicated caste system that hides the real social ranking: a pyramid-scheme that the elite are packaging as "Community, Identity, Stability."

Now, there is a class of all-powerful elites with an unknowable measure of control over each of our lives.

The State in Brave New World is a precursor to The Oligarchy of now. An earlier version. You can probably trace it back to the separation of light from dark, during the creation of the Universe. From that moment, life had predators and prey. And humans took this dynamic and turned it into entertainment. Now, there is a class of all-powerful elites with an unknowable measure of control over each of our lives — more power, influence, and control than we could ever know.

To understand the Oligarchy, we have to understand ourselves. We have to escape the pointless circling chaos of an Oligarch Class that resets our history and shames the act of remembering.

Otherwise, we drown in a ceaseless flood of information and propaganda and maybe never any truth. And without a sense of what's true, without the belief that life holds the potential for meaning, we become toothpicks in some social experiment, some private game for The Oligarchy.

That's the existence they demand of you. Your existence. Your individuality. Because individuality is an obstacle to them. You belong to everyone else. You belong to The Oligarchy. You're more useful if you conform. But were you ever even given a choice

How many times must the corporate media get something completely wrong — and attack anyone who dares to disagree — before we realize who they have become?

On the radio program Friday, Glenn Beck shared an article from the Daily Caller titled, "Eight Anti-Trump Narratives the Media Finally Had to Admit Were False All Along." From the Lafayette Square controversy to the denial that COVID-19 could have anything to do with a lab in China to the "Russian bounties" story, the list of mainstream media conspiracy theories goes on and on. If it were anyone but the liberal media who got the facts this embarrassingly wrong, they would have been out of a job long ago.

Watch the video clip below to hear eight of the most anti-Trump the narratives shamelessly pushed by the media — that were completely wrong.

Former President Barack Obama sat down with CNN's Anderson Cooper recently for an interview scheduled to air in full on Friday. During the interview, Obama scoffed at the idea that critical race theory could be a "threat to our Republic," while claiming that "right-wing media venues" are "stoking the fear and resentment of a white population."

On the radio program Wednesday, Glenn Beck set the record straight: the right-wing media's efforts to call out the far-left have nothing to do with race in America, but rather everything to do with protecting our way of life that is being threatened more and more each day by the radical, Marxist ideology seeping into government.

"Mr. Obama, you lied," Glenn asserted. "You used the IRS to hunt down your enemy. You spied on the media. And your health care package, which was supposed to save every American $3,000 per year, has helped some, perhaps, while raising the cost of everyone's health care in double and triple percentages. But the worst thing that you did, is you planted, you watered, and you protected the Marxist seeds, by crying race."

Our sacred republic has never been in more danger than it is today. Little by little, industry by industry, the far Left is fundamentally transforming the country we love. And it's an aggressive, hostile kind of takeover we've only seen in some of the world's darkest societies.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck exposes how the Biden administration and Democrats are aggressively scrambling to reset everything: our free and fair voting system, our kids' education, our policing, immigration and border security, our economy, our military, and our energy supply.

Finally, Congressman Dan Crenshaw (R-Texas) joins to discuss how Biden's "woke" policies are threatening America's national security and our way of life.

Apparel company The North Face recently stated that it would no longer make jackets for oil and gas companies because it doesn't want to be associated with the fossil fuel industry. In response, Colorado-based oil and gas company Liberty Oilfield Services rented full billboard ads to remind The North Face of the truth: "Globally, 60% of all clothing fibers are made out of oil and gas. For North Face, it is likely 90% or more."

Liberty CEO Chris Wright joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss just how much of our economy — beyond outdoor apparel and energy — wouldn't exist in a world without fossil fuels. And he warns that many companies are now deeming this truth to be "controversial."

"I have been for years, trying to get a real, honest dialogue about energy going," Chris told Glenn. "So we took this opportunity to point out that North Face jackets are ... almost completely made out of oil and gas. How can you choose not to associate with the essential material your equipment [is] made out of? So we put a billboard up ... the billboard says, 'That North Face puffer looks good on you. And it was made from fossil fuels.'"

"Most billboard companies did not want to run that billboard. They thought it was controversial," he added. "And Facebook put a hold on our brief video just saying the jacket looks good, this is what it's made out of. In today's world, that is controversial."
