Control Of The Media Is Essential To The Establishment Of Global Government
This post is interconnected to those dealing with most of the posts under our ‘Social Engineering’ page. I often tell people that, if you will bother to read what they write and have the courtesy to take them at their word, the people who really run the world will tell you what they want to do and how they intend to do it. I understand that much of the material involved is commonly associated with conspiracy theory. I also understand that this is by design; it serves the purposes of those who wish to remain in the shadows. Still, I am not making any claims to know who these people are, or exactly what they want or how they intend to do it. All I am doing here is presenting some of what they and others have said about their existence. What strikes me as most compelling about the quotes that follow is how far back they go; how internationally connected and consistent they are; and how – if we just look – we can and do find examples of what these people said they planned to do actually being put into policy and practice. So, with all this in mind, I present a little of what those we seek global control have said about the role the media plays in their plans to create global government.
The people who seek to force a global government on this world have admitted to each other that they cannot do so unless and until they can control public opinion. In order to control public opinion, they must first control and coordinate the media. This means control and coordination of all media: news, entertainment and pop-culture. (It also means control over education as well, and we will address this aspect in future posts). As we will soon see, there is plenty of credible evidence that such control and coordination actually exists, and that it is directed by a ruling elite. But, if you try to expose it, you are attacked as a ‘conspiracy kook.’ This is nothing more than another version of the same ‘PC Hammer’ explained in my post, PC Water Torture: Protecting The PC Narrative, Sooner Or Later, Tyranny Bites The Hand That Helped To Prop It Up. It is a defense mechanism designed to protect those who control our media from exposure by publicly discrediting those who try to expose them, thus shutting down debate and giving others cause to reconsider before they try to expose these tyrants, themselves. And that is exactly what this is: tyranny.
Now, before you start thinking that I am speaking nonsense, consider what is really being lamented in this story from the Politico and how it relates to what I just said:
The reality for Obama – and his future successors – is that Americans no longer congregate around a small number of outlets for their news and entertainment. A presidential speech that cuts into all the broadcast networks and cable news will reach a big slice of the public, but it won’t command universal interest or attention from the American people.
In other words, the media has lost its monopoly: its stranglehold on the public debate/narrative. Do you remember Orwell’s book, “1984?” Do you remember that TV screens were everywhere in that society, and how those screens screens would all run the same message at the same time? Do you remember how they were used to control the people? That was not fiction. Orwell was not sending us a warning to watch out and prevent that sort of society. Orwell was a Fabian: he was telling us this was the society in which we were going to live – like it or not. But the people who saw television as a means of control over the public never planned on a simple invention: the Internet. People like you and I, and things like what we are doing here, now, are causing real problems for the powers that be because we have helped people escape from their control. But how did the idea to use TV to control the public come about in the first place?
If we want to understand the crucial role modern media plays in the formation and manipulation of public opinion, we need to go back to the founding of the Progressive movement (as you read the OYL, I hope you are struck by how many of our nation’s problems find their origins in the Progressive movement). We need to go back to a man named Edward Bernays. He is widely considered to be the man who invented modern propaganda as well as what has become known as ‘public relations’ – or, as it is known in political circles, ‘spin.’
Bernays worked for Woodrow Wilson, among others. His job was to use ‘science’ to determine how to control the public by controlling the formation and direction of public opinion. This control was intended to be exercised by the government (for the good of the public, nation and ‘democracy,’ naturally). Bernays was wildly successful. In fact, NAZI propaganda minister, Joseph Goebbels, said that the NAZI’s learned the art of propaganda from the Americans – specifically, Bernays. Note the similarity in these two statements:
The conscious and intelligent manipulation of the organized habits and opinions of the [public] 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.’
It is the absolute right of the state to supervise the formation of public opinion.
Bernays used what he learned while working for Wilson to develop what became known as mass marketing. He is the reason you drink OJ for breakfast, and why so many women smoke when, before his efforts, it was considered taboo for women to smoke. The effect of Bernay’s work was not lost on his political benefactors. They saw his work as a means of forming and directing public opinion for their own purposes: a way to get the people to do what they wanted them to do while making the people think it was all their own idea. It is the same idea expressed here:
“One of the least understood strategies of the world revolution now moving rapidly toward its goal is the use of mind control as a major means of obtaining the consent of the people who will be subjects of the New World Order.”
—From The National Educator, K.M. Heaton
A really efficient totalitarian state would be one in which the all-powerful executive of political bosses and their army of managers control a population of slaves who do not have to be coerced, because they love their servitude. To make them love it is the task assigned, in present-day totalitarian states, to ministries of propaganda, newspaper editors and schoolteachers….
—Aldous Huxley, of “Brave New World” fame
All propaganda must be so popular and on such an intellectual level, that even the most stupid of those toward whom it is directed will understand it… Through clever and constant application of propaganda, people can be made to see paradise as hell, and also the other way around, to consider the most wretched sort of life as paradise.
This is why politicians use so many focus groups: they are using ‘science’ to discover the best wording so they can ‘sell’ their agenda to their voters. This is also why Progressives pay so much attention to language: they think words control thought. And this is why the Left gets so frustrated when the public rejects their agenda. Rather than re-evaluating their ideas, they blame it on poor marketing. You see, it has worked so many times in the past that they now ‘know’ it works every time — you just have to make sure you have the right formula. But, even if you find that perfect formula, none of this works without control of the media. Without control and coordination of the media, ‘propaganda’ doesn’t work:
The bourgeoisie is many times stronger than we. To give it the weapon of freedom of the press is to ease the enemy’s cause, to help the class enemy. We do not desire to end in suicide, so we will not do this.
Without some form of censorship, propaganda in the strict sense of the word is impossible. In order to conduct propaganda there must be some barrier between the public and the event.
–Walter Lippmann, famed American journalist
“We are grateful to the Washington Post, The New York Times, Time Magazine and other great publications whose directors have attended our meetings and respected their promises of discretion for almost forty years. It would have been impossible for us to develop our plan for the world if we had been subjected to the lights of publicity during those years. But, the world is now more sophisticated and prepared to march towards a world government. The supranational sovereignty of an intellectual elite and world bankers is surely preferable to the national auto-determination practiced in past centuries.”
–David Rockefeller, Baden-Baden, Germany 1991
My friends, that is proof of what I constantly tell people: if you will just look, you will find admissions of what these people believe, want to do and how they plan to do it. This last quote is an admission by one of the leaders of this ‘hidden government,’ David Rockefeller. If you have ever listened to Rush Limbaugh talk about the leadership of the Republican Party, you have probably heard him talk about ‘blue-blood, country-club Republicans.’ Rockefeller is one of the people to whom Limbaugh is referring. These people are all Progressives of the Teddy Roosevelt mold, but Progressives none the less. But there is more evidence that our media is controlled:
“In March, 1915, the J.P. Morgan interests, the steel, shipbuilding, and powder interest, and their subsidiary organizations, got together 12 men high up in the newspaper world and employed them to select the most influential newspapers in the United States and sufficient number of them to control generally the policy of the daily press….They found it was only necessary to purchase the control of 25 of the greatest papers.
“An agreement was reached; the policy of the papers was bought, to be paid for by the month; an editor was furnished for each paper to properly supervise and edit information regarding the questions of preparedness, militarism, financial policies, and other things of national and international nature considered vital to the interests of the purchasers.”
–U.S. Congressman Oscar Callaway, 1917
“We know in the not too distant future, a half dozen corporations are going to control the media. We took this step (merger) to ensure we were one of them”
—Time Warner spokesperson.
“There is no such thing as an independent press in America, unless it is in the country towns. You know it and I know it. There is not one of you who dares to write your honest opinions, and if you did, you know beforehand that it would never appear in print.
“The business of the New York journalist is to destroy truth; to lie outright; to pervert; to vilify, to fawn at the feet of Mammon; to sell his country and his race for his daily bread. We are the tools and vessels for rich men behind the scenes. We are intellectual prostitutes.”
–John Swinton, editor of the New York Tribune.
But this is not the worst of it, my friend. The worst of it is that these people actually want to have direct, physical control over your brain. This is not a joke. Read this carefully, and pay special attention to the source of this quote:
“We need a program of psychosurgery for political control of our society. The purpose is physical control of the mind. Everyone who deviates from the given norm can be surgically mutilated. The individual may think that the most important reality is his own existence, but this is only his personal point of view. . . Man does not have the right to develop his own mind. . . . We must electronically control the brain. Someday armies and generals will be controlled by electronic stimulation of the brain.”
–Dr. Jose M.R. Delgado, Director of Neuropsychiatry, Yale University Medical School, Congressional Record, No. 26, Vol. 118, February 24, 1974.
Luckily for us, the blending of man and machine that would be necessary for such control is a thing of science fiction, right?
Ray Kurzweil believes that innovations in biogenetics and nanotechnology are creating a new future for humanity, leading toward a future event he calls the Singularity, in which man and machine finally merge. We catch up with the man himself, as well as some of his skeptics, to find out what the controversy is all about.
If you are ‘awake,’ that last story should chill you to the bone. However, if it doesn’t mean anything to you, if the name Ray Kurzweil and his connection to Google don’t bother you… Well, let’s just say you do not want to miss my next post.
