do countless American people go along with the War on Iraq? Why do so many people
call for a police state control grid? A major component to a full understanding
of why this kind of governmental and corporate corruption is to discover the modern
science of mind control and social engineering. It's baffling to merely glance
at the stacks of documentation that this world government isn't being constructed
for the greater good of humanity. Although there are a growing number of people
waking up the reality of our growing transparent soft cage, there seems to be
just enough citizens who are choosing to remain asleep. Worse yet, there are even
those who were at least partially awake at one time but found it necessary to
return to the slumber of dreamland.
This is no accident; this is a carefully crafted design. The drive to dumb
down the populations of planet earth is a classic art that existed before the
United States did. One component to understanding and deciphering the systems
of control is to become a student of the magicians of influence and propaganda.
In order to defeat our enemies (or dictators), its imperative that we understand
how they think and what they believe in.
When people think about mind control, they usually think in terms of the classic
"conspiracy theory" that refers to Project MK-Ultra. This program
is a proven example of 'overt mind control.' The project had grown out of an
earlier secret program, known as Bluebird that was officially formed to counter
Soviet advances in brainwashing. In reality the CIA had other objectives. An
earlier aim was to study methods 'through which control of an individual may
be attained'. The emphasis of experimentation was 'narco-hypnosis', the blending
of mind altering drugs with carefully hypnotic programming.
A crack CIA team was formed that could travel, at a moments notice, to anywhere
in the world. Their task was to test the new interrogation techniques, and ensure
that victims would not remember being interrogated and programmed. All manner
of narcotics, from marijuana to LSD, heroin and sodium pentathol (the so called
'truth drug') were regularly used.
Despite poor initial results, CIA-sponsored mind control program flourished.
On 13 April 1953, the super-secret project MK-ULTRA was born. Its scope was
broader than ever before, and only those in the top echelon of the CIA were
privy to it. Official CIA documents describe MK-ULTRA as an 'umbrella project'
with 149 'sub-projects'. Many of these sub-projects dealt with testing illegal
drugs for potential field use. Others dealt with electronics. One explored the
possibility of activating 'the human organism by remote control'. Throughout,
it remained a major goal to brainwash individuals to become couriers and spies
without their knowledge.
When it was formed in 1947, the CIA was forbidden to have any domestic police
or internal security powers. In short, it was authorized only to operate 'overseas'.
From the very start MK-ULTRA staff broke this Congressional stipulation and
began testing on unwitting American citizens.
Precisely how extensive illegal testing became will never be known. Richard
Helms, CIA Director and chief architect of the program, ordered the destruction
of all MK-ULTRA records shortly before leaving office in 1973. Despite these
precautions some documents were misfiled and came to light in the late 1970's.
They laid bare the spy agency's cynicism. Despite the widespread knowledge of
MK Ultra and the civil lawsuits that followed, this form of behavior modification
is not the most expansive. The real dangers are the types of thought control
that are 'covert' and not the subject of several dozen Hollywood movies like
"Clockwork Orange" and Mel Gibson's "Conspiracy Theory."
Our founding fathers faced enormous challenges in the formation of this country
and its bill of rights. One challenge was laying down the groundwork or a free
society without knowing what kind of technological advances would be made. Who
would have guessed in those times that we needed an article in the bill of rights
that specifically prohibits the government and it's associates from engaged
in mind control or thought control. The closest item that promises our protection
from the government is the 4th Article in The Bill of Rights which states, "The
right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects,
against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no warrants
shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by oath or affirmation, and
particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things
to be seized." Like many are now beginning to note, the US Constitution
and its Bill of Rights are merely given lip service by our supposedly elected
One of the most common examples of mind control in our so-called free and civilized
society is the advent and usage of the television set. This isn't to say that
all things on TV are geared towards brainwashing you. They're not. But most
of the programming on television today is run by the largest media corporations
that have interests in defense contracts, such as Westinghouse (CBS), and General
Electric (NBC). This makes perfect sense when you see how slanted and warped
the news is today. Examining the conflicts of interest is merely glancing at
the issue, although to understand the multiple ways that lies become truth,
we need to examine the techniques of brainwashing that the networks are employing.
Radio isn't any different in its ability to brainwash a population into submission.
Sixty-seven years ago, six million Americans became unwitting subjects in an
experiment in psychological warfare. It was the night before Halloween, 1938.
At 8 p.m. CST, the Mercury Radio on the Air began broadcasting Orson Welles'
radio adaptation of H. G. Wells' War of the Worlds. As is now well known, the
story was presented as if it were breaking news, with bulletins so realistic
that an estimated one million people believed the world was actually under attack
by Martians. Of that number, thousands succumbed to outright panic, not waiting
to hear Welles' explanation at the end of the program that it had all been a
Halloween prank, but fleeing into the night to escape the alien invaders.
According to researcher Mack White ( http://www.mackwhite.com/),
"Psychologist Hadley Cantril conducted a study of the effects of the
broadcast and published his findings in a book, The Invasion from Mars:
A Study in the Psychology of Panic. This study explored the power of broadcast
media, particularly as it relates to the suggestibility of human beings
under the influence of fear. Cantril was affiliated with Princeton University's
Radio Research Project, which was funded in 1937 by the Rockefeller Foundation.
Also affiliated with the Project was Council on Foreign Relations (CFR)
member and Columbia Broadcasting System (CBS) executive Frank Stanton, whose
network had broadcast the program. Stanton would later go on to head the
news division of CBS, and in time would become president of the network,
as well as chairman of the board of the RAND Corporation, the influential
think tank which has done groundbreaking research on, among other things,
mass brainwashing. Two years later, with Rockefeller Foundation money, Cantril
established the Office of Public Opinion Research (OPOR), also at Princeton.
Among the studies conducted by the OPOR was an analysis of the effectiveness
of "psycho-political operations" (propaganda, in plain English)
of the Office of Strategic Services (OSS), the forerunner of the Central
Intelligence Agency (CIA). Then, during World War II, Cantril and Rockefeller
money assisted CFR member and CBS reporter Edward R. Murrow in setting up
the Princeton Listening Center, the purpose of which was to study Nazi radio
propaganda with the object of applying Nazi techniques to OSS propaganda.
Out of this project came a new government agency, the Foreign Broadcast
Intelligence Service (FBIS). The FBIS eventually became the United States
Information Agency (USIA), which is the propaganda arm of the National Security
Council. Thus, by the end of the 1940s, the basic research had been done
and the propaganda apparatus of the national security state had been set
up--just in time for the Dawn of Television."
Experiments conducted by researcher Herbert Krugman reveal that when a person
watches television, brain activity switches from the left to the right hemisphere.
The left hemisphere is the seat of logical thought. Here, information is broken
down into its component parts and critically analyzed. The right brain, however,
treats incoming data uncritically, processing information in wholes, leading
to emotional, rather than logical responses. The shift from left to right brain
activity also causes the release of endorphins, the body's own natural opiates--thus,
it is possible to become physically addicted to watching television, a hypothesis
borne out by numerous studies which have shown that very few people are able
to kick the television habit. It's no longer an overstatement to note that the
youth today that are raised and taught through network television are intellectually
dead by their early teens.
The dumbing down of humanity is represented by another shift which occurs in
the brain when we watch television. Activity in the higher brain regions (such
as the neo-cortex) is diminished, while activity in the lower brain regions
(such as the limbic system) increases. The latter, commonly referred to as the
reptile brain, is associated with more primitive mental functions, such as the
"fight or flight" response. The reptile brain is unable to distinguish
between reality and the simulated reality of television. To the reptile brain,
if it looks real, it is real. Thus, though we know on a conscious level it is
"only a film," on a subconscious level we do not--the heart beats
faster, for instance, while we watch a suspenseful scene. Similarly, we know
the commercial is trying to manipulate us, but on an unconscious level the commercial
nonetheless succeeds in, say, making us feel inadequate until we buy whatever
thing is being advertised--and the effect is all the more powerful because it
is unconscious, operating on the deepest level of human response. The reptile
brain makes it possible for us to survive as biological beings, but it also
leaves us vulnerable to the manipulations of television programmers. This is
where the manipulators use our own emotions as strings to control us. The distortions
and directions we are being moved to are taking place in the subconscious, often
Propaganda techniques were first codified and applied in a scientific manner
by journalist Walter Lippman and psychologist Edward Bernays (nephew of Sigmund
Freud) early in the 20th century. During World War I, Lippman and Bernays were
hired by then United States President, Woodrow Wilson, to participate in the
Creel Commission, the mission of which was to sway popular opinion in favor
of entering the war, on the side of Britain. Edward Bernays said in his 1928
"The conscious and intelligent manipulation of the organized habits
and opinions of the masses is an important element in democratic society.
Those who manipulate this unseen mechanism of society constitute an invisible
government which is the true ruling power of our country."
The Creel Commission provided themes for speeches by "four-minute men"
at public functions, and also encouraged censorship of the American press. The
Commission was so unpopular that after the war, Congress closed it down without
providing funding to organize and archive its papers. The war propaganda campaign
of Lippman and Bernays produced within six months such an intense anti-German
hysteria as to permanently impress American business (and Adolf Hitler, among
others) with the potential of large-scale propaganda to control public opinion.
Bernays coined the terms "group mind" and "engineering consent",
important concepts in practical propaganda work. The current public relations
industry is a direct outgrowth of Lippman's and Bernays' work and is still used
extensively by the United States government. For the first half of the 20th
century Bernays and Lippman ran a very successful public relations firm. World
War II saw continued use of propaganda as a weapon of war, both by Hitler's
propagandist Joseph Gobbles and the British Political Warfare Executive, as
well as the United States Office of War Information.
Turn on your local newscast. You have a few minutes of blue-collar crime, hardly
any white collar crime, a few minutes of sports, misc. chit chat, random political
jibber-jabber, and a look at the weather that no one is forecasting correctly.
Is that what happened in your town? And we're supposed to own the airwaves!
The mainstream media openly supports the interests of the prison industrial
complex. The stories focus on minority criminal groups, and exploit the real
threat to appear much more dangerous than they are. Think about the growing
per capita number of prisoners in the country. Then remember that this is happening
at the same time that our prison boom began. The police on our streets have
created criminals. The focus is to keep us in a state of fear, that way the
elitists can attack any group they want to without fear of consequence. This
is why the media is continuing to craft the timeless art of dehumanization.
The techniques are increasing in their sophistication over time as the mind
scientists that serve the empire continue to discover scientific breakthroughs
as to how the human brain functions, learns, retains information, and behaves.
The most effective brainwashing techniques are used on the most successful propaganda
networks. Examine the music bed that lies low during the fright night scope
of the second. It's spooky. I wonder if we are supposed to be thinking with
our minds or getting ready for stunt. Observe the graphics with the music. They're
glitzy and flashing. Like the monkey that is attracted to shiny objects, it's
our monkey hand that controls to remote often stops the search for entertainment
when the proper amount of glamor catches their attention. Most importantly,
notice the repetition behind the lies that the politicians and their corporate
media groupies tell us. You see, the unimaginable fallacies are created as 'truth'
not because it's logical or provable, but because of the broken record technique.
No matter how ridiculous the lie, it's repeated often enough that the brain
doesn't know the difference between reality and nursery rhymes. This technique
is underestimated in its ability to allow the puppeteers to hypnotize millions
of people. Instead of "Fair and balanced" it's "We say it enough
times, and you believe it."
It's a tragic day when the state can monopolize on the enslaving and imprisonment
of a population. Hollywood will continue to frighten us with films on the mafia,
gangsters, and the corrupt blue collar criminal whose stupidity and greed get
them caught. In the end, our minds are already preconditioned to accept living
in a police state economy and society because we read it in the paper, saw it
praised on the news and talk shows, or saw it in a movie. There are several
movies planned right now that support the official story of 911 and a few movies
that glamorize the War on IRAQ. According to David L Robb, Author of Operation
"Hollywood and the Pentagon have a long history of making movies together.
It's a tradition that stretches back to the early days of silent films,
and extends right up until the present day. It's been a collaboration that
works well for both sides. Hollywood producers get what they want - access
to billions of dollars worth of military hardware and equipment - tanks,
jet fighters, nuclear submarines and aircraft carriers - and the military
gets what it wants - films that portray the military in a positive light;
films that help the services in their recruiting efforts. The Pentagon is
not merely a passive supporter of films, however. If the Pentagon doesn't
like a script, it will usually suggest script changes that will allow the
film to receive the military's support and approval. Sometimes these proposed
changes are minor. But sometimes the changes are dramatic. Sometimes they
change dialogue. Sometimes they change characters. Sometimes they even change
They create something coined 'disinfotainment'. They mix disinformation with
entertainment and call it disinfotainment.
Unadulterated violence is now accepted on regular TV. Killing in the name of
the mother government is praised, that is unless the violence is committed in
self defense to protect someone from the system. Sharp shooters, bombers, and
assassin are worshiped if they are fighting for the system, are in the military,
or are associated with groups that control the masses locally, such as the local
police department. I don't condone violence, however it's hypocritical to support
one form of homicide when it favors the elite, and condemn another when it's
done to protect your land, freedom, or loved ones. This odd reality transfers
itself into the shady world of video games that are stepped in plots and tasks
to kill as much as the player can. The players are getting younger and younger
with 7 out of 10 children playing games with a 'Mature' rating. Recently I was
browsing the PC video game selection at a very large electronics store. I was
appalled to see nearly 50 different games in which the setting of the game is
Iraq and the goal is to kill as many insurgents as possible and fulfill the
mission. Children today are being indoctrinated through their favorite games
and law enforcement programs to be the button pushers of the weapons of mass
destruction for tomorrow's world.
Is it any wonder why there are two house bills and a senate bill (with more
on the way), which are giant steps in dismantling the free speech of the general
public. These bills together would kill (PEG) cable access centers where the
public still owns the airwaves. It's the programming created locally, without
censorship or commercial gain. Their income is derived from franchises within
the local cities and a small percentage cable subscriber frees. This is a corporate
takeover because this is centralizing communication by removing the locally
based programming and moving the audience to the more official, nationalistic,
and sensational programs that promotes violence, uniformity, and slavery over
peach, diversity and freedom. Cable access features free speech and information
with perspectives neglected by mainstream television. It also features a free
flow programming system with fresh programs being aired by new producers on
a rotating basis. This keeps the content and information creative and locally
based while network TV is rigid with regular time slots and repetitive programming.
The blocks of programming that are universally accepted parallel the shift
to craft our entire lives towards the factory's bell and the illusion of time.
This is the creation of the hive mind. The hive mind is result of massive brainwashing
to the general public. Everyone shares the same thoughts, goals, knowledge and
understanding. A hive mind society gears itself towards conformity and ignores
diversity while masqueraded as the road to utopia in mainstream television.
Network programming, weather it's the news or drama, is geared towards artificially
creating your world and reality. With the proper amount of entertainment and
sensationalism, we may even be living our lives through the television set.
Many anchors and actors are beautiful and research shows that attractive people
are usually perceived as trust worthy. While the real news rolls quickly by
on the bottom of your screen, the anchor is selling you on the idea of having
your very own police state hell hole right here in your local jurisdiction,
or how 2 sports opposing teams chased around on a court for 2 hours in attempt
to score points means something to you. No education, no information, SPIN.
Today the media represents a tool of brainwashing and indoctrination that is
utilized on behalf of the owners interests.
Since the 1996 Telco act, television and radio stations all across the nation
were bought out by major international media outlets. Clear Channel and Infinity
are the two largest corporations in radio today. This has centralized the distribution
of information and has threatened our free society ever since. The media drums
to the heartbeat of its owners, whose interests are not of the general public.
Instead they are interested in their other financial endeavors like defense
contracting, oil business, political parties, prison industry. The conflicts
of interest are monumental with the deregulation of the corporations. The lines
are now blurred between one network's coverage of the war and the other.
Once we come to the conclusion that the media is intentionally deceiving us,
we can apply the principles of problem-reaction-solution. This formula takes
a problem by either creating it or allowing it to happen and presenting that
to the population. It could be terrorism, molestation, extra terrestrials. These
topics create fear and no one in their right mind would support terrorism or
crime. It's therefore OK to blast the television, the papers, and radio with
'the problem.' The natural reaction from the people is a request for more control
to ensure more safety. Most let their fear and emotional side control their
decisions and usually translated into something like, "The government needs
more power over our lives to make us safer and freer from tyranny. I believe
what the media tells me so I will support whatever decisions they make."
Today's mainstream corporate news program discourages dissent of the war and
paints activists with a negative brush that hints of treason. At the same time,
the so-called journalists are cogs in a much larger machine who know that if
they report a story that paints the government in a dark light, is likely to
remain on 'the wire' and off the front page.
The most disturbing thing about spending a single hour examining network cable
news and modern Hollywood films are the reoccurring themes in the backdrop.
The central ideas of countless "investigative reports" or "Friday
night special" features are about a threat of some type over the horizon.
The end of the world as we know it is being sold. If the news isn't feeding
it to you, then the History Channel or Discover Channel are either talking about
the crusades, asteroids, UFOs, earthquakes, terrorism, or exposes about serial
killers. They are crafted a message that our world is unstable, and the threat
is always an invisible and dangerous one that only our military can fix. When
you record and log all the messages, you end up with a script, a screen write
produced through the movie studios of Hollywood hell.
I am not alone in noting this observation. Local and network news are designing
their editorials about despair and fear because the owners, producers, and editors
now understand that fear sells. The end result are the desired ratings, delivered
like expected. The masters of modern spin understand that we like to be terrified.
Just look at the success in the action/suspense/terror genres that have plopped
onto the conveyor belt and packaged for our glee consumption. When the editors
in charge found out that simply plastering a terror alert chart didn't scare
the people the same way it used to, they began to kick up the campaign of terror
a few notches with new and creative ways to sell the police state.
When you get to the other side of the terror alerts of all shapes and sizes,
you find another nightmare masquerading as the savior. The 'Ministry of Truth'
will protect you. The mother government is here to rescue you and squash this
brown terrorist bug, this gray alien, this avian bird flu, and every other nightmare
that the nightly news brought you. The finest public relations specialists take
the science of worshiping our kings down to a frame by frame level. George W.
Bush is pictured in numerous poises with a hallo around his head. In other pictures,
he stands tall with dozens of American flags blowing in the wind behind him.
A more blasphemous display features him speaking in front of the cross of Jesus
Christ. The message send couldn't be more clearly presented. Our current leaders
are of the messiah status and only through them, will we reach the gates of
safety. The lie that has been accepted by so many as truth is that this is a
religious war. Numerous prime time programs are telling the story of the crusades
(without the horrors) to synch our vibrations up to something out of the 13th
Century, instead of the 21st Century. If the America people accept the fact
that the crusades are here, that George Bush reports directly to god, and that
revelations are here, then they have won the war for our minds.
The loudspeaker whispers, "All our problems are by accident, never design."
Across the room the system's minion snorts, "If you have nothing to hide,
you have nothing to fear." It's that plot that says Middle Eastern terrorists
from an Afghan cave are the reason beyond our little, "War on terror."
Related messages in the script demonize young minority males and suggest harsh
punishments for crimes they commit. They don't come out overtly and state their
racist agenda. They come at you from the side by airing the same crime news
repetitively, usually when it's committed by the minority group. The networks
love the fact that the TV sets the norms in society and today, and hence politically
opinion. Who would imagine that in the United States of America, both candidates
of both parties in the 2004 election would be members of the Skull and Bones
society at Yale University? Out of 290 million Americans, this is the best we
could come up with?
It is the decision of the owners to influence producers, editors, and others
involved to paint to brush to fit the objective, which is the bottom line. If
Sports is what the people want, then they get it, usually in large doses. Multi-media
sports (or spectator sports) is just an escape from our own existence. It's
like gambling, or drug addiction. It provides that buffer zone of rooting for
something with other people that we've been told is good. People's fantasies
also lead them to fixating on sports. It's simulated masculinity, in an age
where there's a push to change us from men to robots. It's human nature to resist
and fight that which is suppressing us. The sociologists and psychologists in
areas of influence know this. Spectator sports prove the outlet internationally
for what has been stripped away from us. We've lost the right to rebel and change
our government through warfare if necessary. Today the bulk of our nation's
population today doesn't know what's really going on with the fall of the American
dollar and the plans for the transfer of American wealth to other countries.
However, most can tell you who the top basketball or football players are. A
lot of fans wish they were the stars, out there on the stage, the court, and
the drag strip. Either you're "numero uno" in center stage or you're
nothing. End of story.
What I never understood when I was in high school was why my peers and friends
would act naïve or ignorant in a "Wayne's World" or "Beavis
and Butthead" kind of way. What I've learned since then is that the numerous
programs that are pimping themselves of as 'entertainment' are actually targeted
to the lowest common denominator. This is especially true with disc jockeys
in radio today. The reason our airwaves are saturated with jokes and content
centered on fart jokes, private parts, borderline racism, and general trash
talk is because it is selling. In the meantime, large numbers of our children,
young adults, and older audiences are mimicking what they see and hear because
the current 'norm' is selling this behavior as cool or 'chic.' When the conditioned
is so intense that these forms of content are considered the norm, anything
else seems either bizarre or uninteresting to the average American's attention
span that is decreasing by the day. Hypothetically, if a producer on a network
did get away with a feature story exposing government corruption at the highest
levels, chances are the large impact necessary wouldn't be realized because
the average viewer's brain has already been conditioned to seek out certain
types of disinfotainment.
The media has created the picture perfect society that could exist if we only
did things their way, (their interests/government interest). It tells us what
happiness is and what it is not and same for love, hate or anything else they
can implant into our subconsciousness. We can become the perfect slave to the
system through indoctrination given through network TV. Over time the messages
are becoming increasingly racist, violent, and dishonest. But the programming
began decades ago and few have the eyes to see it for what it has become. We
live in a world where the populations give their minds away to the official
version of the event, where utopia is right around the corner when big brother
is riding shotgun. It's a world where Hollywood can make you believe anything,
even that you are free. It's a world in which the prosecutor and the judge sit
on the same side of the bench. The most obvious reason that our minds are being
controlled on a massive scale psychologically, is because our culture has been
conditioned incrementally through TV, radio, or the paper. We are given the
world reality through a screen, some ink, or radio waves. The truth is hiding
in plain site. The indoctrination through these mediums warns us that views
other than those presented by them are unimportant and too be condemned. This
administration and media monopoly has a carefully crafted dehumanization program
to anyone that dissents the official version of events.
Some people are wrong about 5% of the time. Some are wrong most of the time.
I wish I was wrong all the time. A lot of people deal with these intense realities,
by asking me rhetorically, "What is the solution, smart guy?" Remember,
it's the viewers, the consumers and all the other little votes called dollars
that helped this oligarchy system lay its concrete foundation in our backyards.
We must recognize the truth about why the system is flawed and enslaving us
if we wish to beat it. The most important solution to fighting this type of
brainwashing and mind control is to start with ourselves and our own awakening
in the smaller things. In this case, it's brainwashing but after awhile we break
Outside the Box and begin venturing outside the system and into unknown terrain.
Fighting with people and forcing them to understand 'our truth' is not a solution.
If our collective free will created this nightmare, than only our collective
free will change it. The battle begins in the heart and mind of the beholder,
and then extends outward from there, only to those open to the information.
If you choose to travel the road to the truth, then you must be prepared for
the obstacles that await you. You may be condemned or criticized by your family,
your friends, your lovers, or your co-workers. This is their programming that
began at birth that is doing exactly what it's supposed to do. You're going
to have to be stronger than that. You must realize that there is a reality that
exists outside of this controlled artificial system. Like Indiana Jones in the
Last Crusade, he took that 'leap of faith' over the bridgeless canyon in an
attempt to get to the other side. Like Neo in the Matrix, he took the red pill
from Morpheus in his attempt to cross over to his real self. Once you wake up,
it's as if a hypnotist came along and snapped his fingers. You wake up and say
to yourself, "Oh my god. I can see it now. Why did it take me so long to
wake up?!" For some of you it can be a major shock. Like anything else,
take this information and knowledge in stages. If it took a lifetime for them
to mold your reality for you, then you know that it may take longer than a day
to fully awaken. Remember, the journey of a thousand miles begins with a single
