One of the greatest bits of recent propaganda was when the left got away with the lie of saying before Obamacare, we had a free market healthcare system. We have actually had a “socialism-lite” version of healthcare for decades. The masters of brainwashing didn’t forget this though, they simply and conveniently repackaged the deal obviously completely leaving out the most obvious examples of socialized medicine: Medicare and Medicaid. But it didn’t matter. The easily manipulated took that as a “sign” from the media that it was time to get more control and more of the government’s authoritative involvement in the industry which is supposed to keep them healthy.
In 1923, Edward Bernays published his book “Crystallizing Public Opinion”, in which he argues that “crystallizing public opinion” is essential to a democratic government of large-scale nations. In order to govern, or control, a vastly disparate people, you have to unify their minds, but not aginst “authority.” Bernays also criticized fellow psychologist and author Walter Lippmann for knowing the public mind so well but failing to use that knowledge to manipulate the mind. Bernays spent a long career creating the “opinion-making machinery,” which would provide the “news” that would become the “history” of the 20th century. .
If ever anyone wants to know why alternative media has gained a foothold, it’s for the simple fact that those who dare to question the mainstream media’s version of events; are to be labeled as false and “conspiracy theorists,” even though their views obviously make the most sense. Conspiracy theorists don’t only have to believe in alien abduction or reptilian creatures anymore. Now, all they have to do is question authority or the media’s scripted version of events; and that was by design as w
Any time a credible but politically unpalatable explanation for real world events is expressed in the American public sphere, it is often denounced as “conspiracy theory”, then dismissed and studiously ignored by the mass media. Public opinion, the public herd mind, obediently follows suit and closes itself to any such crazy conspiracy talk. –Econintersect
Wake up and question everything. Start to understand freedom. Follow the money trails. It is not difficult to figure out that giving an authoritative entity like the US government more power through a willingness to vote and accept the whims of other voters is done through a massive propaganda machine. One should understand that voting away the rights and property of others is wrong, and they do…until the media brainwashes them into hating the very people who simply want their freedom from violence and totalitarianism. Just do a quick internet search of “sovereign citizens” (those who have declared their freedom from the US government corporation) and you will understand. The media and government are making these people look insane when all they want is to escape the plantation peacefully. The only reason Sovereign citizens are a “threat” to anyone, is because they are free from the shackles of government. Just look at the most recent evidence. CNN admitted they push fake news and false narratives to control what the public thinks in exchange for profits. Yet some in the public still defend CNN.
Ask any American today and they will tell you that slavery is wrong, yet when you lay out the factual and logical case that the US government is a corporation which owns them, they get physically uncomfortable. And virtually no media outlet will print this simple truth because they would lose money. That’s a big red flag that the brainwashing has been successful in the democracy and soon-to-be USSA.
