Who Can You Trust?

Despite the way she works with and supports people who I think are enemies of the human race and abusers of planet Earth, e.g. Nancy Pelosi and Joe Biden, I still think Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is a bright spark in congress, and often sheds light on important issues that nobody else is paying attention to.
Yesterday, she tweeted this: https://twitter.com/AOC/status/1390721335144456196 The tl/dr version (come on, people, it’s a tweet, just click on the link) is that the U.S. Chamber of Commerce is nothing more than a pro-business lobbying group.
I was about to comment on that with my own story of the time I reported a company I worked for to the Better Business Bureau and the first thing the BBB did was show the letter to my boss.
None of these organizations are what they seem. The federal reserve banking system (according to Wikipedia) is neither private nor governmental but somewhere in limbo between the two, and the CIA certainly seems to do things independent of any elected authority. If the WHO were actually concerned with world heath, every place in the world would have decent health care, but not everyplace does. If the World Bank and the IMF were there to maintain global stability and help poorer countries out of poverty with micro-loans, that would be a very good thing. But, if you look at who’s on the board you will see the biggest, slimiest capitalists on the face of the Earth. Think Tanks are not, as I once naively imagined, places to generate new ideas and new programs to solve humanity’s problems. They are propaganda mills, nothing more, nothing less, and the vast majority of them are on the extreme right. Most charities aren’t even real charities.
What can we trust? The sun rises every morning, the rivers continue to run, the seasons come and go, although at the moment their cycles seem a bit irregular, and the physical laws of the universe remain immutable. Other people? Sometimes, the ones we know personally. Politicians, business people, the police, TV and newspapers, never in a million fucking years.
