John McAfee is at it again, folks. The man who predicts bitcoin to reach $1 million by the year 2020 has announced he’s running for president and that he wants America to “wake up.”
McAfee Doesn’t Think He’ll Win
In truth, McAfee says he doesn’t want to win the presidency, nor does he expect to. He’s using the opportunity to instead push people’s boundaries and challenge how they think. He says that Americans have done their part to usher in “all the wrong people” in Washington D.C., and he wants to challenge them to think in an opposite direction.
In a recent interview with Newsweek, McAfee explains in detail the goals behind his allegedly fake presidential run:
I want to change every individual’s attitude and understanding of government. Here’s my position: that we are being lied to by the government from every single corner of the world. The CIA provides [info] which is deceptive… The government provides information which is manipulative… So, you ask me what my position is on anything. How would I know? I don’t have any information that is real, so what’s the point? I saw that first we must wake up and understand that we have a corrupt government. That we have a system of slavery in effect. I mean, we work for three to four to five months every year for the government for free in terms of paying income taxes. Is that not slavery?
McAfee further explains that he’s not worried about his overall reach capacity, and that if he reaches ten people, then “that’s a change.” He openly claims he has no alternatives in mind when it comes to changing our present governmental system, but he also says he “doesn’t need any,” commenting that if everyone in America “woke up and saw the truth,” they wouldn’t have a plan either.
He compared the situation to a crowded theater that was on fire. He claims that if a fire breaks out in a movie theater, but that the movie is so good nobody else notices, you try to wake everyone up. From there, nobody really has a plan. They just try to escape the fire as quickly as they can.
Making People See the Truth?
He further added:
This is how the world works. I’m 73. I know human interaction and the dynamics of day-to-day life… We become dreamlike and we ignore those things which are the greatest threat to us. It’s called laziness. Wake one person, they’ll wake another one. Then they’ll wake another. How about a million? I don’t think it’ll take too long.
McAfee, who has exiled himself to a small island in the Bahamas, claims to have several people throughout the area “working on his campaign.”
