Kit Knightly is one of the editors at OffGuardian.
The concept of a Fake Binary is something I picked up from OffGuardian‘s Telegram channel, although it’s similar to the concept of the Overton Window, which can be essentially defined as the range of ideas people, in general, are willing to consider and accept.
Thinking outside of the given parameters, in other words, is deemed unacceptable.
For example, I am no longer convinced that SARS-CoV-2 is a real virus. (I think it is merely rebranded Flu.) This position is deemed so unacceptable that YouTube actively removes content making such claims. So, in this instance, the Fake Binaries would be
- SARS-CoV-2 originated from a wet market; or
- SARS-CoV-2 was leaked from a laboratory.
Staying within the Overton Window
In both scenarios, the existence of the SARS-CoV-2 is reinforced, creating the parameters inside which acceptable discourse (and even aggressive debate) may occur.
My position – that SARS-CoV-2 does not exist – is outside of the above parameters and, as such, deemed radical and unthinkable and, as such, dismissed.
My conversation with Kit wasn’t only about the aforementioned, but also about other very important matters, like why Lord Of The Rings is one of the greatest movies ever made, and the lessons we might learn from Hollywood. (Yes, there are indeed lessons we might learn from Hollywood, believe it or not.)
Hollywood and movies
However, if you want to listen to Kit and I riffing about Hollywood and movies, and nothing else, then listen to the following chat we had on TNT.
It was a lot of fun.
