We all do it, and I am no exception, even though, when I dream, it tends to be creative, yet even I pulled back from the darkness of this. And when I dove deeper into my dream, I found links to a story I saw 3 years ago, the problem is, is it altered to seem real or is it merely fantasy, but not the good kind that involves unicorns.
The story starts with the setting that a man is going to court to give evidence, on the way he gets harassed by people, harassed by the media, who all claim that the people are allowed to know the truth, and in this the man proceeds, a young lady was raped and he is giving evidence. But the media has another direction, in this their stake holders need alteration, as such the man is shown over the days to be loosely untethered to reality, and that is how the defence of the raper continues and the man is set free, the people AFTER the trial are not the most interested in what actually happens. Suddenly the media takes a distance from the man and they are all the promiscuity of the girl, they achieved the goal that the Stakeholder requires and they set the achievement of a large advertiser they all have reason to celeb rate, because the truth got out, but in this, the story is merely beginning, the man who got played and got tainted was never the most stable one, merely. Man with moral fibre and that can be the most dangerous man of all. He finds the two men at the heart of the ragging and he soon learns that they recently acquired new cars, new wardrobes and their children were able to get into schools they should never have been able to get into and the man gets angry, he waits until there is a dark night, a moonless night and he sets fire to the houses and the cars, he walks off, there are no witnesses and he does not care whether the people survive (they do), and as we see this iteration, we also see the man closing in on the reporter, who is now largely aware that she had become a target too. Even as she pleads on the TV for the man to come out, promising that they would hear him out, he merely walks on, ignoring TV’s, having coloured his hair grown a beard, and wearing a small pillow to seem heavier than he is and he walks on, through the streets on his way to make someone pay. It is a morning and we see a view of a square, we see a view of people and as we see the people walk into buildings, some might notice the reporter with dark shades, a cap and moving a little faster as she sees the building where she works, he sees her too from a distance up on high, he aims and pulls the trigger, exactly where he was aiming for, the right kneecap, another miss filer of truth had come to its rightful setting, on the floor drowning in fear, blood and horror.
Even then the man who had safely (and rather fast) eloped to his place of birth now knew that he could never return to that nation, even as he used the media to give the people an avalanche of stories that suited HIS needs, the media was all too aware that there is a price to pay, and the reporters who are offered the bonus are not eager to accept any of it.
So this was the dark dream, and we will of course relate to J. Epstein and G. Maxwell who finds herself in court also in a stage where she might enjoy that view for 35 years. There is an other piece, on that I saw in 2017, it is called ‘How do sexual assault victims feel when the media fails them like this?’, an opinion piece (at https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2017/nov/03/sexual-assault-victims-newsnight-media-blaming-victims), it is important, because it shows a rather large failing of the media, a stage we seem to ignore, especially when we are click baited by some. In this, when you consider the sides of “Newsnight producers decided we needed to hear from a panel of 14 men making comparisons with the animal kingdom and complaining that you can’t even put your arm around a woman these days”, which is interesting, especially when we see ‘Newsnight Sexual Harassment Debate Featuring 14 Men And 3 Women Was Pretty Weird’ by reporter Jack Sommers who also gives us “A ‘cross-section of complete lunatics’”, so in this, who EXACTLY were the producers of Newsnight? Perhaps they were whispered to? But to see the media fail one gender this completely is a setting to a large rise of questions. We are witnessing an abuse of channels whilst the victims are more often than not ignored or played down, so why is that?
And if that is not enough, consider the stage that all this started with an affidavit in 2015, and the same media that will spread unconfirmed and unproven issues regarding Jamal Khashoggi have (with the exception of the Miami Herald) left the affidavit largely untouched, as I personally (and speculatively) see it, the rich have too many stake holders, shareholders and advertisers in play in the media. The first truth is that the media tends to filter the truth, and the people are not willing to ask why, as such we see a larger failing and perhaps that too added to the dark dream I had, I hope the next one is lighter, or if it is a dark one, spearheaded towards a new game. In this I can only hope, even as I set the larger stage towards the in creation TV series Keno Diastima.
