I have admired Caitlin Johnstone for a long time.
i love her writing
I love her willingness to look for truth .
Her journalism informs me
Her poetry inspires me
I am truly amazed at her insights and ability to smell bullshit
I think, most times we think we are right. It’s painful to be wrong, But most times we don’t know anything.
Intuition is not Inspiration. There’s error when we confuse the two. Its rare when one can tell the difference.
Intuition is subjective. Inspiration comes from source and is never wrong. When we really deeply look for truth, we find and recognize the things that are not true.
But that is more easily recognizable. Calling out untruth take courage.
and when Caitlin calls it out, I read what she writes and i get more hopeful.
I get insight into the meaning and nuances of hope vs despair.
In my opinion she has more balls, more discernment, than any journalist I know of, and there’s a few good ones out there… if you want to find them.
I suspect her decision to become completely independent, suits her writing and truth telling. She doesn’t have to concern herself with who will publish her articles.
She made a decision that anyone can use her writing as non-copyright material.
Because her desire for people to hear truth, trumps ( excuse the pun ) her desire to be credited with writing it. That observation was a turning point for me.
People need truth rather than comfort though they don’t always know it.
Support her. Her website with a link to patreon is caitlinjohnstone.com
Caitlin has impeccable sources and bases her articles on source material which you can trace through her links on every article she publishes. Do yourself a favor if informing your self is more important to you than cheering your team. Sign up for her blog and give her something through Patreon to keep it flowing, if that is something you can do.
I made a decision along time ago to write music for some of her poems.
This is one that I’m proud of, published 12/12/19
