Listen to a reading of this article: ❖ The single most overlooked and under-appreciated aspect of our society is the fact that immensely powerful people are continuously working to manipulate the thoughts we think about the world. Whether you call it propaganda, psyops, perception management or public relations, it's a real thing that happens constantly, and it happens to all of us.
RIP Robert Parry, a genuine journalist. I might add one overarching bit of propaganda that most folks implicitly accept. It's the notion that the current western hyper-reductionist medical model is optimally effective at diagnosing and treating illness. But the truth is that health is a complex adaptive system property, of far greater complexity than analysis of the (often singular) peripheral biomarkers used by biomedicine (for example, high blood HDL/cholesterol); and these biomarkers drive drug development. For example, Aduhelm is a drug that helps dissolve the plaques in the brains of Alzheimer's patients, one of the main biomarkers of the illness. Problem is that the reductionist molecular effect of the drug is not accompanied by any clinical benefit, the complex system unmoved by this reductionist tinkering around the edges. Most folks are inherently propagandized, forced to accept the reductionist model, most not possessed of the fundamental biological expertise -- or not widely read in dynamical systems theory -- to adjudicate otherwise. So the ignorance that creates brainwashed souls is vast in scope. And it's unlikely that the Big Pharma or insurance monstrosities are likely to help us understand the shortfalls of reductionist biomedicine. Note that despite a unanimous "not approved" vote by the FDA's drug-advisory board, the FDA nonetheless approved Aduhelm, thereby lending the force of the US government to the many fictions of reductionist healthcare model propaganda.
Regardless of your opinion on the Canadian Trucker movement, the response from the Canadian government - and the bought-and-paid-for-media - was nothing short of a perfect example of government mind control. There was one - ONE - Nazi flag that was waived twice - TWICE - and it became the center of the governments attempt to smear truckers. It was such an obvious false flag as to be pathetic, but they did it anyway and largely succeeded due to the active participation of all the Canadian media.
CTV, CBC, BELL media and others are now complaining because Canadians don't trust them. Hilarious.
Don't forget Mika Brzezinski's infamous Freudian slip on MSNBC about who's job it is to control exactly what people think.
Matt Ehret just published an article that talks about the origins of the Council of Foreign Relations, among other things. I'll link below along with the episode I just posted on him and his wife Cynthia Chung as GeoPuzzle Pros. It talks about her series on Sleepwalking into Fascism, and his research into the CIA funding artists to create art devoid of meaning--abstract expressionism. I found this quote while researching it:
Someone once said that beneath or behind all political and cultural warfare lies a struggle between secret societies.
—Ishmael Reed, Mumbo Jumbo (1972)
This is a great post. Anyone who is committed to reason and evidence capsule not possibly deny the fact that the leaders in Washington lie to us in an effort to control our opinions on their behavior.
"By their acts you will know them": there is some good stuff in the bible, common wisdom of which people have always been aware. By their acts, and their results. Propaganda, no matter how clever, extensive and effective, has limitations. Fool me once, twice, three times - but thousands of times? And how far does blaming the Russians for lack of housing, food on the table, dangerous roads and bridges, go? And once thoroughly discredited it's almost impossible to regain confidence. So, a reality check on the part of propagandists and the governments responsible, is inevitable, and the sooner they see that the better. it don't work, when you get right down to it. And Russia and China are getting tired of the insults and general bullshit. And without Russia and China, we are probably screwed and - screwed again.
Keep on fighting Caitlin!!!!!
I know you don't agree with the Pro-life movement, but for the March for life in Victoria BC, the city set up a "Women and Children's Indigenous" day on the same day as the March For Life. There was a tent full of reporters and reporting equipment (I saw it myself). That government sponsored event wrapped up a mere hour before the march for life arrived and the entire media tent was already packed up and gone.
This shows two things: 1) The government actively creating a distraction from a citizen led event and 2) the complicity of the Canadian MSM.
Regardless of your opinion on M4L, this shows the governments contempt for it's citizens and their opinions. Agree with these government tactics at your own peril.
COVID scamdemic pre-planned...now they are doing the exact same thing with monkeypox....and the brainwashed covidiots will fall for it again....https://www.bitchute.com/video/t5c3Fqm3jYeQ/
Ah, now one sees why the Musk acquisition of Twitter will be prevented. Psy-Ops require a dissemination vehicle. And Twitter is a global mechanism of communication.
WHY is Hillary STILL on Twitter and Scott Ritter and Chris Hedges are permanently banned?
How did you limit the list to ten?
Anderson Cooper comparing his CIA summer job to being a waiter...lol...he worked as a waiter to pay his bills. He chose to work at the CIA because he believed in it. When I was a journalism undergrad the thought of working for the CIA would have disgusted me, the only appeal maybe to write about it later with some inside cred. Odd, Cooper dropped that ball.
Only one cavil: someone killed in a car wreck while driving 100 mph at 4:30 a.m. was probably not assassinated by the CIA. (It's still important to know that the intelligence agencies can hack into car control systems.)
Progressive media is also to a lesser extent infiltrated. Kos appears to have a history as a CIA asset and David Corn is at the very least a deep state information operation force multiplier, regardless of whether or not he is paid for his work.
