In the #News #Politics #Geopolitics - Delusion Packaged As Unfiltered Truth

“If you don't read the newspaper, you're uninformed. If you read the newspaper, you're misinformed.”

“Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to reform (or pause and reflect).”

― Mark Twain

The ousting of Tucker Carlson and Don Lemon, falling ratings and viewers for years, all subjects of numerous conspiracy theories across the Internet, suggests to many that cable news days are numbered. Make no mistake about it, social media, blogs, nearly every platform on the Internet positioned as news collectors to billions, do not understand the concept of an invisible hand.  If they do, few know how to track it. This makes these platforms yet another iteration of reality that spawned WallStreetBets, laser eyes, #silvershortsqueeze, and countless other static and generally useless narratives.

Delusion packaged as unfiltered "truth" may be just as entertaining, but they'll leave the majority as bag holders when the cycle(s) change against consensus expectations. This message, the real unfiltered truth, is consistent from one generation to the next. Everyone subscriber, follower, and Internet surfer must learn to separate entertainment from investment discipline. The two are not interchangeable.

Investment discipline recognizes cycles, surfs the primary trends, and understands the fractal nature of price and time, energy, participation, and most important, removes ego and emotion from all decision-making. Ego is the main reason why the majority consistently finds itself as the bag holder of trend transitions.

The invisible hand knows the majority's weakness. It flushes dumb money, a group that panic buys and sells strength and weakness, as often as it can. Wheat provides an excellent real-time example of this setup.
