Headpats wanted, we're still here

More like that's what people want.I believe the woke, progressive "leftism" movement is supported by the CIA and corporations to undermine actual left-wing movements and working class organising.
Look at where it comes from. It started with postmodern academics and corporations, and was then pushed to students, and then the wider population. It isn't something that grew from the working classes.
Talking of academia, look at what student politics used to be like: campaigning against wars, for workers' rights, against unemployment, against debt; actual tangible demands. Now all their organising power and energy is directed into bullshit discourse about pronouns.
Now you get hypercapitalist entities like Coca-Cola, G-SIBs and arms companies getting loads of praise from "the left" for useless symbolic bullshit like putting non-binary folx in an advert. The most egregious example I've seen recently was a "huge win for antiracism" which was Uncle Ben's removing the picture of the black house slave from their packaging. The "left" was satisfied with this, while actual antiracists and workers' organisations pointed out that the parent company, Mars, still uses African slaves - child slaves, even - in its supply chain. Footballers all taking a knee for BLM while hundreds of slaves have died in the building of the world cup stadium in Qatar.
This stuff works much better than McCarthyism did, because instead of persecuting activists, it distracts them with bullshit so that they still believe they're left-wing activists, while they're really just wasting their time and reinforcing the status quo, they don't even know it. The best bit is they'll even oppose actual working class movements because they're not up to speed with all their ever-changing woke shibboleths (on account of the fact they're busy, y'know, working, and don't have time to read Twitter all day).
People get to feel righteous without the work, while getting pats on the back and even support, pfffft, from globa multi-billion dollar corporations. You get to be the Master Chief for the UNSC, a hand-pick special forces man for your government in Call of Duty, you get to bash Nazis, the losers of a world war unlike the Soviets who still won today, just look at what academia teach to our kids today.
But hulk ser hulk, what if...the satellites we're all run by the SCP foundation and we're just under amnesiacs. Also its like google maps being edited by google who got international reach because of....the governments and big corporations that help funds it.Trying to hide an entire continent would be an exercise in futility. Continents are gigantic masses of lands that effect a lot of stuff, such as ocean currents and the jet stream, just by there being huge masses of land there. It'd be a pretty obvious effect. Plus editing it out of every picture of the earth taken from space would be really tedious. Plus ancient explorers would've seen it and written about it.
Not to mention that even though most airplanes take standard routes, not all of them do. Plus people launching their own drones that go pretty high up and things like that. It'd be impossible to hide an entire continent. A small island? Sure. A continent? No.
