“All over the place, from the populace culture to the propaganda system, there is a constant pressure to make people feel that they are helpless, that they only role they can have is to ratify decision and consume.”
– Noam Chomsky
Today’s news consists of aggregates of fragments. Anyone who has taken part in any event that has subsequently appeared in the news is aware of the gross disparity between the actual and the reported events. … We also learn frequently of prefabricated and prevaricated events of a complex nature purportedly undertaken for the purposes either of suppressing or rigging the news, which in turn perverts humanity’s tactical information resources. All history becomes suspect. Probably our most polluted resource is the tactical information to which humanity spontaneously reflexes.”
– Buckminster Fuller

From the very moment the printing press came to be, the course of history was instantly altered.
Information, and more importantly ideas, now had the capability to change the breath of the land at much faster speeds. This did not go unnoticed by those in power.
Shaping conscious thought – reality – now was possible in ways previous generations could only dream of.
Soon thereafter, propaganda would become an even more effective tool when used in conjunction with the printing press, and its latest extension – mass media.
This is why now, in our time, the CIA had its tentacles embedded deeply within the mainstream media structure, and probably still does. But this is not a recent event. Since at least the 1950s or so, the CIA had people working on their payroll influencing the American public:
Why is that of importance? Because a press that is run by a separate entity such as the CIA, or a press that has to seek approval due to censorship before publishing stories is not a free press. Censorship is antithetical to the truth. This lack of truth by all mainstream networks should eviscerate any credibility they might have with the population.
This shouldn’t be surprising, when former CIA Director himself, William Colby, stated once:
What is taking place resonates an incisive quote by H.G. Wells. Wells, who at once wrote for the New York Times, best encapsulates the ramifications of modern media:
“Modern means of communications – the power afforded by print, telephone, wireless and so forth, of rapidly putting through directive strategic or technical conceptions to a great number of cooperating centers, of getting quick replies and effective discussion – have opened up a new world of political processes. Ideas and phrases can now be given an effectiveness greater than the effectiveness of any personality and stronger than any sectional interest.”[Bold Emphasis Added]
Like the kings and rulers of time past, this piercing effectiveness that communications can bring has quickly put to use by rulers and globalists of our era.
“Like Hitler, who sought to bring individuals alienated by the Industrial Revolution and Depression into a hive-like German Volk, or united people, the globalists who control America’s mass media have attempted to bring citizens into one common worldview by the unremitting dissemination of homogenous news and information. Networks and cable channels routinely accept reports from “pool reporters, which results in many channels presenting the same version of the news.”
The aforementioned statement by the late author and renowned researcher Jim Marrs gravitates to the core of the matter succinctly.
An evolution of social control has taken place via a variety of modalities, spearheaded mainly by modern communications such as the television, the Internet, and to a lesser extent books and magazine et al. This grid of endless propaganda has locked a large portion of humanity in lockstep with the plans of the comptrollers.
This is a prime example why people must educate themselves and spend the time needed to not only learn how to think critically, but also sift through information carefully – much of it designed to distract you – in order to figure out what is pertinent and what is outright garbage. Being able to do accomplish this will mean the difference between knowing the truth or living a lie.
One facet that has simplified this information lockdown has been the monopolization of Corporations that control the media. With only six media giants running the show and exercising unprecedented control, it does not take a genius to see that such a monopoly in information distribution clearly facilitates the shaping of our opinions, and ultimately, our world.
In a society in which people do not bother to question anything, scripted stories become the daily dish du jour.
Some people seem to be waking up, based on how many people are detaching from networks such as CNBC, who not long ago had its viewership decline to 8-year lows.
A lot work remains to be done however. The propaganda is relentless, and the mind control and techniques employed by mass media have been ongoing for quite some time.
Only by continuously educating ourselves will we be able to figure out the lies told by the mainstream media. A prime example of this was when the Associated Press was caught lying about water fluoridation or when the media was caught lying again about supplements. Keep in mind these are only but a smidgen of the vast and elaborate falsehoods put forth by mainstream.
“One of our best-kept secrets is the degree to which a handful of huge corporations control the flow of information in the United States. Whether it is television, radio, newspapers, magazines, books, or the Internet, a few giant conglomerates are determining what we see, hear, and read. And the situation is likely to become much worse as a result of radical deregulation efforts by the Bush administration and some horrendous court decisions,” warned Congressman Bernie Sanders, adding, “This is an issue that Congress can no longer ignore.”
Such an ominous warning should be taken to heart, because our very livelihoods – and those of future generations – depend on it.
What steps will YOU take to educate yourself and others?
