"A Glitch in the Matrix" by Randy Vanadisson

In my May 24, 2020, blog entitled “An Exercise in Cognitive Dissonance”, I stated, “There are two ways of experiencing cognitive dissonance (CD). You can either have a direct experience that challenges a core belief, or you can be open-minded, seek out new information, and receive the same effect when a previously considered premise or core-belief becomes invalid due to new information.”
Well today I was exposed to yet another way it can be generated…a glitch in the matrix. It doesn’t happen very often, but it occurred a few days ago on a grand scale. Millions upon millions around the world experienced CD on Tuesday when Dr. Maria Van Kerkhove, epidemiologist and member of the World Health Organization (WHO) Covid-19 Task Force, stated that it is very rare for asymptomatic carriers to spread covid-19. Even I was shocked on that one. I actually experienced CD from the other side of the wall. I couldn’t believe it and I spread the information as fast as I could.
The next day (in total damage control mode), Dr. Kerkhove “clarified” what she actually meant (I am laughing). Dr. Kerkhove looked a little freaked out, like she had been reprimanded severely. It’s not often that the oligarchs’ propaganda machine makes mistakes, but this one was a biggie. The internet exploded. I even sent the information to my county commissioners. The State of Washington Department of Health must have lost their minds.
I was all set to sit down and write a blog about it today when I received the HighWire on Instagram. Del Bigtree absolutely killed it - far better than I could. I am just going to post his video, right here, for your entertainment. Enjoy! Less than 15 minutes. Entertaining too!
