TV Mind Control

There's more than more than seemingly meets the eye when it comes to the effects television on our minds & how it can be used to influence out thought, feelings, & behaviors. Aside from the obvious content of whatever propaganda you may be viewing, whether its a commercial suggesting you buy whatever product or use whatever service, or some agenda subtly promoted through various programs, there is also the matter of the T.V.'s flicker rate & Psychotronic subliminal carrier technology which not many know much about. 

Without getting too much into all this myself ('cuz I'm lazy) I'm just going to highlight a few key points & provide links to elsewhere where you can get further details.

"The deepest form of social control is to govern what a human being believes is true and false, right and wrong. When you short-circuit a person’s critical faculty and moral sense, he will obey authority with no need for force because authority has defined who he is.
Such control requires the monopolization of information. That is why totalitarian states establish compulsory state schools, throttle freedom of speech and the press, broadcast propaganda, legislate the Internet, and obsessively monitor what people say to each other. They need to eliminate any competition in the ‘truth business’. And, so, those who know the 'Emperor has no clothes' are silenced by various means."

Propaganda, Mind Control, & Mysticism

Firstly, just what is propaganda?
In short, it is the systematic spread of a given doctrine or of allegations reflecting its views and interests. The term has become pejorative, commonly applied to messages that, even if it conveys true information, may only mention facts that further its cause and fail to paint a complete picture. However, the term can still apply to any effort to spread facts or allegations even if it does paint a fair and accurate picture.
In the Russian language, "propaganda" doesn't bear any of the negative connotations that it does in the English language. It simply means "dissemination of ideas".

What is mind control?
There is control of the minds of others (or of your mind by others) & there is control of your own mind by your self.
There is also outright overt mind control like you might see on T.V. or in movies like the Manchurian Candidate, intermediate levels, like cults or some churches, & more subtle forms of mind control, like we might experience watching commercials on TV.

From Wikipedia:
"Mind Control is a general term for a number of controversial theories and/or techniques designed to manipulate an individual's thinking, behavior, emotions, or decisions."

Control of your own mind leads into Mysticism. To control your mind is to know your mind, & what your mind is... & why it is your mind, but it is not Who You Are.
More from Wikipedia:
"Mysticism ... is the pursuit of achieving communion or identity with, or conscious awareness of, ultimate reality, the divine, spiritual truth, or God through direct experience, intuition, or insight; and the belief that such experience is an important source of knowledge, understanding, and wisdom. Traditions may include a belief in the literal existence of realities beyond empirical perception, or a belief that a true human perception of the world transcends logical reasoning or intellectual comprehension. A person delving in these areas may be called a Mystic.

In many cases, the purpose of mysticism and mystical disciplines such as meditation is to a reach of state of return or re-integration to Godhead. A common theme in mysticism is that the mystic and all of reality are One. The purpose of mystical practices is to achieve that oneness in experience, to transcend limited identity and re-identify with the all that is. The state oneness has many names depending on the mystical system: The Kingdom of Heaven, the Birth of the Spirit, the Third Awakening, Illumination, Union (Christianity), Self-Realization, Reintegration, Nirvana (Buddhism), Samadhi (Hinduism), and Gnosis, to name a few....."

So down the rabbit hole we go... "know thyself"... take the red pill, & all that.
If you don't go within, you go without, but thats where we're gonna start. Without. Without knowledge or understanding... in ignorance. Also "without," as in the external world which we believe we percieve & experience through our senses. I'm going to attempt to "shock" you out of your comfort zone for a moment. To attempt to wake you from your complacency, to spur you to action, to ignite a fire within you (or under your ass, if you prefer) to fuel your drive to know & to understand, & then to quench your thirst for knowledge, but only for a moment... leaving you wanting more.

Unfortunately, no one can be told what the matrix is... you have to see it for yourselves.
Some people know, & don't need to be told; others do not know, but seldom listen.
You will either believe what I am about to present to you, or you will not. It is a choice, ultimately. Some people want to believe, others want not to. It is worth pointing out at this time, that everyone is addicted to their bias, & usually in denial about it.

The matrix is a system. That system is our enemy. But when you're inside, you look around, what do you see? Businessmen, teachers, lawyers, carpenters, the very minds of the people we are trying to save. But until we do, these people are still a part of that system and that makes them our enemy. You have to understand, most of these people are not ready to "wake up" to "reality" and many of them are so hopelessly dependant on the system that they will fight to protect it, even to their own detriment.

Cognitive dissonance. We are brainwashed from birth.
"Sins of ther father passed down to the son" & all that.

Some evidence of the lies of government (& elitist globalists) lies & propaganda as a method of mind control presented in the form of quotations:

"There is no such thing, at this date of the world's history, in America, as an independent press. 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. "I am paid weekly for keeping my honest opinions out of the paper I am connected with. Others of you are paid similar salaries for similar things, and any of you who would be so foolish as to write honest opinions would be out on the streets looking for another job. If I allowed my honest opinions to appear in one issue of my paper, before twenty-four hours my occupation would be gone. "The business of the Journalist is to destroy truth; To lie outright; To pervert; To vilify; To fawn at the feet of mammon, and to sell his country and his race for his daily bread. You know it and I know it and what folly is this toasting an independent press? We are the tools and vassals for rich men behind the scenes. We are the jumping jacks, they pull the strings and we dance. Our talents, our possibilities and or lives are all the property of other men. We are intellectual prostitutes."
- John Swinton, the former chief of staff of the "New York Times."

"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 subject to the bright lights of publicity during those years. But the work is now much 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, Trilateral Commission Founder - 1991

"For more than a century ideological extremists at either end of the political spectrum have seized upon well-publicized incidents such as my encounter with Castro to attack the Rockefeller family for the inordinate influence they claim we wield over American political and economic institutions. Some even believe we are part of a secret cabal working against the best interests of the United States, characterizing my family and me as 'internationalists' and of conspiring with others around the world to build a more integrated global political and economic structure--one world, if you will. If that's the charge, I stand guilty, and I am proud of it."
- David Rockefeller - Memoirs pg. 405

"Give me the power to issue a nation's money; then I do not care who makes the law."
- Meyer anselm Rothschild

"The real rulers in Washington are invisible, and exercise power from behind the scenes."
- Felix Frankfurter, U.S. Supreme Court Justice 1952

"Since I entered politics, I have chiefly had men's views confided to me privately. Some of the biggest men in the United States, in the field of commerce and manufacture are afraid of something. They know there is a power somewhere so organized, so subtle, so watchful, so interlocked, so complete, so pervasive that they had better not speak above their breath when they speak in condemnation of it."
- President Woodrow Wilson - The New Freedom, 1914

"I have unwittingly ruined my country. A great industrial nation is controlled by its system of credit. Our system of credit is concentrated. The growth of the Nation and all our activities are in the hands of a few men. We have come to be one of the worst ruled, one of the most completely controlled and dominated governments in the world--no longer a government of free opinion, no longer a government of conviction, and vote of the majority, but a government by the opinion and duress, of small groups of dominant men."
- President Woodrow Wilson

"It is well enough that people of the nation do not understand our banking and monetary system, for if they did, I believe there would be a revolution before tomorrow morning."
- Henry Ford

"The one aim of these financiers is world control by the creation of inextinguishable debts."
- Henry Ford

The Big Lie:
"...All this was inspired by the principle - which is quite true in itself - that in the big lie there is always a certain force of credibility; because the broad masses of a nation are always more easily corrupted in the deeper strata of their emotional nature than consciously or voluntarily; and thus in the primitive simplicity of their minds they more readily fall victims to the big lie than the small lie, since they themselves often tell small lies in little matters but would be ashamed to resort to large-scale falsehoods. It would never come into their heads to fabricate colossal untruths, and they would not believe that others could have the impudence to distort the truth so infamously. Even though the facts which prove this to be so may be brought clearly to their minds, they will still doubt and waver and will continue to think that there may be some other explanation. For the grossly impudent lie always leaves traces behind it, even after it has been nailed down, a fact which is known to all expert liars in this world and to all who conspire together in the art of lying...."
- Hitler - Mein Kampf

"His (Hitlers) primary rules were: never allow the public to cool off; never admit a fault or wrong; never concede that there may be some good in your enemy; never leave room for alternatives; never accept blame; concentrate on one enemy at a time and blame him for everything that goes wrong; people will believe a big lie sooner than a little one; and if you repeat it frequently enough people will sooner or later believe it."
- OSS report page 51

"That is of course rather painful for those involved. One should not as a rule reveal one's secrets, since one does not know if and when one may need them again. The essential English leadership secret does not depend on particular intelligence. Rather, it depends on a remarkably stupid thick-headedness. The English follow the principle that when one lies, one should lie big, and stick to it. They keep up their lies, even at the risk of looking ridiculous."
- Joseph Goebbels

"Today Americans would be outraged if U.N. troops entered Los Angeles to restore order; tomorrow they will be grateful. This is especially true if they were told there was an outside threat from beyond, whether real or promulgated, that threatened our very existence. It is then that all peoples of the world will plead with world leaders to deliver them from this evil. The one thing every man fears is the unknown. When presented with this scenario, individual rights will be willingly relinquished for the guarantee of their well being granted to them by their world government."
- Henry Kissinger speaking at Evian, France, May 21, 1992 Bilderburg meeting. Unbeknownst to Kissinger, his speech was taped by a Swiss delegate to the meeting.

"We must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military-industrial complex."
- Dwight D. Eisenhower

"Our country is now geared to an arms economy bred in an artificually induced psychosis of war hysteria and an incessant propaganda of fear."
- General Douglas MacArthur

From Wikipedias entry on PNAC
(Project for the New American Century - NeoCon "thinktank"):
"A line frequently quoted by critics from Rebuilding America's Defenses famously refers to the possibility of a "catastrophic and catalyzing event — like a new Pearl Harbor (PDF)".[9] This quote appears in Chapter V, entitled "Creating Tomorrow's Dominant Force", which discusses the perceived need for the Department of Defense to "move more aggressively to experiment with new technologies and operational concepts”.[10] The full quote is as follows: "Further, the process of transformation, even if it brings revolutionary change, is likely to be a long one, absent some catastrophic and catalyzing event — like a new Pearl Harbor." Some have used this quote as evidence for their belief the US government was complicit in the 9/11 terrorist attacks. (See the article 9/11 conspiracy theories for further information on this topic.) Many critics also claim the PNAC believed this "new Pearl Harbor" would justify war on Iraq."

I could go on & on.... but do I really need to? By now, you will either be in denial or at least considering the possibility of the truth to this & what it all might mean.
Some people know & don't need to be told; others....
But this is only "external" wordly materialistic drama B.S. It's barely scratching the surface.
Just the tip of the ice berg.

"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 step."

If you repeat anything frequently enough, people will sooner or later believe it.

"None are more hopelessly enslaved than those who falsely believe that they are free" - Goethe

In this article, I will attempt to wake you up to the reality that most people refuse to believe, and inform you as to how and why most refuse to believe it. I must admit, though, that I don't have very high expectations. I know that those who know do not need to be told, while those who do not know, seldom listen. It seems a rather hopeless task, as those who don't respond with harsh criticisms or ad hominim attacks may simply dismiss or ignore what I am about to say. Nevertheless, I feel the need to make the attempt anyway, because, as in the words of Mark Twain, "The citizen who sees his society's democratic clothes being worn out and does not cry out is not a patriot, but a traitor." Either you do not "see" democracy failing, and so believe society's democratic clothes are still ok, or perhaps you see that things are messed up, but feel hopeless and defeated, or you are just ignorant of and apathetic about such things and don't even care. This is not entirely your own fault. You are a victim of mind control. Chances are, you don't realize how serious the war being waged for your heart and mind really is, if you even suspected there was one in the first place. That in itself would be evidence that you are losing this fight... your heart and mind may no longer be your own, if they ever even were. This war is waged with subtle weapons, such as that of propaganda.

Propaganda is the systematic spread of a given doctrine or cause or of information reflecting the views and interests of such a doctrine or cause. In the Russian language, propaganda simply means "dissemination of ideas" and doesn't bear any of the negative connotations that it carries in the English language where the term has become pejorative. Propaganda is commonly applied to messages that may only mention facts that further a cause and fail to paint a complete picture. However, the term can still apply even if it does paint a fair and accurate picture.

Propaganda which is untrue and where the source is unidentified is called "black propaganda," and it is often disguised to appear to be coming from one side of a conflict when in actuality it is coming from the opposing side. Black propaganda is often used in order to misrepresent and demonize an enemy and contrasts with grey propaganda in which the source is unidentified and white propaganda in which the real source is identified. Most propaganda focuses on influencing the emotions rather than objective reasoning of a target audience in order to alter attitudes, perception and behavior. Censorship often goes hand in hand with propaganda as it achieves the same purpose, only it prevents people from knowing true information as opposed to filling people's heads with false information.

Propaganda techniques were first codified and applied in a scientific manner by journalist Walter Lippman and psychologist Edward Bernays (Sigmund Freud's nephew and the father of psy-ops, mass spin control and modern propaganda) 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 Committee on Public Information). This group's mission was to sway popular opinion in favor of entering the war, on the side of Britain. Bernays also coined the terms "group mind" and "engineering consent," which are important concepts in practical propaganda work. Edward Bernays said in his 1928 book, "Propaganda," that, "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. We are governed; our minds molded, our tastes formed, our ideas suggested largely by men we have never heard of." One of the patterns that Bernays (and others since him) used over and over again was to turn a harmless entity into a fearsome enemy through lies and manufactured news items, and then use the "threat" of that manufactured villain to justify an attack.

Adolf Hitler was impressed by the power of Allied propaganda during World War I and believed that it had been a primary cause of the collapse of morale and revolts on the German home front and in the German Navy in 1918. Shortly after Hitler took power in 1933, he appointed Joseph Goebbels propaganda chief, in charge of the "Ministry for Public Enlightenment and Propaganda" (Propagandaministerium). One of Bernays' biggest fans was Joseph Goebbels, a fact which Bernays bragged proudly about. Hitler and Goebbels made famous the propaganda technique known as "The Big Lie," described in the following often used quote:

" the big lie there is always a certain force of credibility; because the broad masses of a nation are always more easily corrupted in the deeper strata of their emotional nature than consciously or voluntarily; and thus in the primitive simplicity of their minds they more readily fall victims to the big lie than the small lie, since they themselves often tell small lies in little matters but would be ashamed to resort to large-scale falsehoods. It would never come into their heads to fabricate colossal untruths, and they would not believe that others could have the impudence to distort the truth so infamously. Even though the facts which prove this to be so may be brought clearly to their minds, they will still doubt and waver and will continue to think that there may be some other explanation. For the grossly impudent lie always leaves traces behind it, even after it has been nailed down, a fact which is known to all expert liars in this world and to all who conspire together in the art of lying..." - Hitler - Mein Kampf

Though still debated by some historians, it is believed by others that a communist named Marinus Van Der Lubbe who was blamed for the Reichstag (German Parliament) fire was just a patsy. The idea is that the Nazis themselves were likely to blame, and used the incident to scare the public with exaggerated fears of communism and terrorism, and that only with the Reichstag Fire Decree (which suspended all of the civil rights provisions of the Weimar Constitution), and later the Enabling Act (which effectively bypassed the Weimar Constitution altogether), could the German people be safe and protected from the imaginary hobgoblins. This is basically how Hitler was able to become a dictator. If the burning of the Reichstag wasn't an example of the Big Lie in action, Operation Himmler was. Comprising 21 separate incidents in all, Operation Himmler was a false flag project to create the appearance of Polish aggression against Germany, which was then used as justification for the invasion of Poland.

The pattern is this: Problem, Reaction, Solution.

1) The government creates or exploits a problem, blaming and demonizing someone, possibly a scapegoat or patsy.
2) The people react by asking the government for help, and by being willing to give up their rights.
3) The government offers a solution that was planned long before the crisis, which often involves the centralization of power, and the removal of more and more of our basic freedoms as "they" advance further towards their goal of an Orwellian global socialist/fascist police state.

The precursor to the CIA, called the OSS (Office of Strategic Services), described the primary rules used by Hitler in its psychological profile of him:"His primary rules were: never allow the public to cool off; never admit a fault or wrong; never concede that there may be some good in your enemy; never leave room for alternatives; never accept blame; concentrate on one enemy at a time and blame him for everything that goes wrong; people will believe a big lie sooner than a little one; and if you repeat it frequently enough people will sooner or later believe it."

"The Central Intelligence Agency owns everyone of any significance in the major media," former CIA Director William Colby was quoted as saying in the book "Derailing Democracy" by Dave Mcgowan. Some people suspect William Colby died under "mysterious circumstances" because he knew too much. "Owning" the media was part of Operation Mockingbird, which was intended to "influence" domestic and foreign media. This was one of the many things revealed in 1975 during the Church Committee (United States Senate Select Committee to Study Governmental Operations with Respect to Intelligence Activities). A few of the many other projects the CIA has been responsible for (that are known of) include such operations as:

*Project Paperclip, where the CIA imported Nazi German scientists and intelligence operatives to America after WWII, including SS officers and war criminals.
*MKULTRA, a project involving the mind control of people using techniques used by Nazi scientists to wipe out the existing personalities of the victims and the creation of "Manchurian Candidates (mind controlled slaves, sometimes acting as assassins)."
*Operation CHAOS, a domestic espionage project monitoring, infiltrating, and sabotaging the efforts of anti-war activists and political dissidents.

The FBI had a similar project to Operation CHAOS called COINTELPRO, designed to "increase factionalism, cause disruption and win defections" among various cultural and political groups including the entire New Left socio-political movement, which included antiwar, community, and religious groups. While claims are made that these programs are no longer in operation, no one should be so naive as to doubt that they still do in some form; As with illegal guns, they don't go away, they just go underground.

Even without the CIA's influence, there are several reasons why you can't really get an accurate view of the world around you if you rely on the mainstream media. The U.S. media is rapidly being monopolized by a dwindling number of parent corporations (such as: Rupert Murdoch's News Corp, General Electric, Time Warner, Disney, and Viacom, among others), resulting in less diverse opinions and voices available in the media and a poorly informed public. There are constant conflicts of interest demonstrated by the fact that several of these corporations share members of the board of directors with a variety of other large corporations, including banks, investment companies, oil companies, weapons manufacturers, health care and pharmaceutical companies and technology companies. In the mainstream media which is heavily reliant on advertising dollars, you, the media consumer, are the product being sold to the advertisers, and the interests of the advertisers often come before the interests of the consumer/product. Information critical of the news industry itself, its owners, or of various advertisers is not likely to ever be published or broadcast, and if it is, it will of course be "spun" and swept under the rug as soon as possible in favor of news about Brittney Spears or Paris Hilton or other such distractions. This is done to protect the bottom line. You must not forget that these corporations have an obligation to put shareholder profits above all other concerns and so news items that might endanger the corporate financial interests of those who own the media will face bias and censorship. The goal of maximizing profits is often in conflict with the practice of responsible journalism.

And then you've got your PR firms. Public relations has become a multi-billion dollar propaganda-for-hire industry, where public relations wizards concoct and spin the news, organize phony 'grassroots' front groups, spy on citizens, and conspire with lobbyists and politicians to thwart democracy. These secretive, little-known mega-firms such as Hill and Knowlton, Burson-Marsteller and Ketchum PR, are the "invisible men" who control our political debates and public opinion, twisting reality and protecting the powerful from scrutiny. At least as recently as just a year ago, federal authorities were investigating dozens of American television stations for broadcasting "Video News Releases" (VNRs) produced by the Bush administration and major corporations, and passing them off as normal news, not saying who had produced the items. The Media as a whole has compromised principles for personal gain, becoming Intellectual Prostitutes.

In the case of homosexual "male escort" James Dale Guckert (A.K.A. Jeff Gannon), the "journalist" for front organization Talon News who was issued press credentials by Karl Rove at Bush's request and was actually photographed being kissed and embraced by President Bush, becoming an intellectual prostitute wasn't much of a leap. Of course this scandal didn't blow up like it probably should have, because the media, and Americans in general, are trapped in a state of denial of a disease so cunning and powerful that most Americans refuse to see the underlying malaise, either as individuals or as a nation. When the disease itself is bias, where often people see what they want to see, and not what is, it becomes difficult to realize there even is a problem. This disease creates a world of Newspeaking Doublethinking docile Sheeple where 2 + 2 = 5 and we relieve cognitive dissonance with self deception. Cognitive dissonance is a term which describes the uncomfortable tension that may result from having two conflicting (dissonant) thoughts at the same time, or from engaging in behavior that conflicts with one's beliefs, or from conflicting experiences. A recent study was done which sheds some light on the situation.

Prior to the 2004 Presidential election, researchers asked both Democrats and Republicans to evaluate information that threatened their preferred candidate. The subjects' brains were monitored (with Functional magnetic resonance imaging: fMRI) while they pondered.
"We did not see any increased activation of the parts of the brain normally engaged during reasoning," said Drew Westen, director of clinical psychology at Emory University. "What we saw instead was a network of emotion circuits lighting up, including circuits hypothesized to be involved in regulating emotion, and circuits known to be involved in resolving conflicts."
The test subjects reached totally biased conclusions by ignoring information that could not rationally be discounted, Westen and his colleagues say.
Then, with their minds made up, brain activity ceased in the areas that deal with negative emotions such as disgust. But activity spiked in the circuits involved in reward, a response similar to what addicts experience when they get a fix, Westen explained.
"None of the circuits involved in conscious reasoning were particularly engaged," Westen said. "Essentially, it appears as if partisans twirl the cognitive kaleidoscope until they get the conclusions they want, and then they get massively reinforced for it, with the elimination of negative emotional states and activation of positive ones."

"There's a good chance that your brain has already been working to dismiss much of what you've just read and is rewarding itself with a "fix" for doing so. People who are involuntarily exposed to information that increases dissonance (like right now, perhaps) are likely to discount that information, either by ignoring it, misinterpreting it, or denying it altogether. In addition to rejecting dissonant information that doesn't already support their own (sometimes) warped world-view, people often actively seek out consonant information to reinforce their beliefs, often with little to no interest in truth.

There could be mass hysteria if all news outlets were to continually broadcast this bias study for several weeks straight, not that they would dare. Talk about a buzz kill... or would there be a greater collective "high" from biased people from all sides dismissing the study and the implications concerning the ways the phenomena affects their memories and perception of history? The average political person usually seems to fall into the line of simplistic binary thinking (on/off, 0/1, left/right, etc). If he/she hears news that glorifies his/her side (or any member of it) he/she enters a state of bliss and glory; and feels personally right. When such a person hears negative information about his view or side, they automatically start searching for reasons why this negative information must be false, and may possibly rationalize it as simply a smear campaign by the other side.

Politically biased people (and to a lesser extent, politically apathetic people) are a far greater threat to society than even drug addicts because drug addicts mostly only pose a threat to people or property that they may come into contact with, while the politically biased person threatens the very freedom and democracy our country once stood for. Political "junkies" who can't properly perceive political issues put our nation in jeopardy while they are getting their fix from ignoring reality. This is dangerous because it allows political leaders to get away with anything - no wonder nobody cared when the news got out about both Bush and Kerry being members of the ultra-elite Skull and Bones. It's not like it's even a theory; it's a fact and it even made mainstream news, yet nobody cared. So if you get millions of people who disregard issues like that and forget about them, what will happen when you show them far worse things which are more important and far more vast in scope? Dismissed! Political bias is also dangerous because you'll get people who will believe bad things against the "enemy" without actually checking into the claims. Just like most drug addicts never realize there is an actual problem until it gets out of control, politically biased individuals need to realize that they have a society threatening problem or they will have little to no chance of recovery.

The whole aim of politics is to keep the people divided & in a state of constant fear, and where that leaves off, the media and entertainment industry steps in to keep people distracted and complacent and unaware of things that really should matter a whole lot more. In 1972, 74% of Americans in their mid-30s said they read a newspaper every day. Today, fewer than 28% do so. And while many point to the Internet as the best hope for rekindling interest in the news, only 11% of young people list the news as a major reason for logging on - entertainment, e-mail, and Instant Messaging are all ranked far higher on their list. Most young people just don't care. I think a lot of younger people today consciously or subconsciously realize that they are being lied to. They may realize that the "system" is broken and yet people are all so hopelessly dependent on it that they will fight to protect it (in its broken state), even to their own detriment. In a world where your parents and most of society around you is unwilling to break away from the rest of the herd of sheeple and wake up to what's been going on, what are you to do but feel hopeless and defeated, so that you give up and just distract yourself with trivial things? It's either that or risk being condemned or criticized by your family, friends, co-workers, and others around you whenever you try to show them something (which might increase cognitive dissonance) that they don't want to see. It can be extremely difficult to try to get people to overcome their previous conditioning, especially when that conditioning is telling them to get you to just "go with the flow" and conform.

In the 1976 movie, "Network," T.V. anchorman turned "mad prophet of the airwaves" Howard Beale (Peter Finch) said in one of his rantings, "...we sit watching our TV's while some local newscaster tells us that today we had fifteen homicides and sixty-three violent crimes, as if that's the way it's supposed to be. We know things are bad - worse than bad. They're crazy. It's like everything everywhere is going crazy, so we don't go out anymore. We sit in the house, and slowly the world we are living in is getting smaller, and all we say is, 'Please, at least leave us alone in our living rooms. Let me have my toaster and my TV and my steel-belted radials and I won't say anything. Just leave us alone.' Well, I'm not gonna leave you alone. I want you to get mad!" Like Howard Beale, I don't know what to do about all of the problems of this world, but I do agree that you've got to get mad. You've got to say 'I'm as mad as hell and I'm not going to take this anymore!' If you're not outraged, you're not paying attention.

Consider this your wake up call. Wake up. This is not a Republicrat or Demopublican issue, but an American issue, and we all need to wake up fast before we completely lose all of our allegedly "God given" rights. Do you realize that, while you were sleeping, the Bush administration and others are quietly creating a "North American Union" combining Mexico, the U.S., and Canada into one government? This "Security and Prosperity Partnership" is no secret; you can find out the government's slant on what they're doing at, but it has received very little coverage in mainstream media and almost no one I've asked has ever heard of it. This "union" is being created without having to present the proposition first to the American public or the U.S. Congress for debate and approval, even though (or because!) it may mean the end of America and our constitution. There are many other issues of great importance that I would love to tell you about, but without this article first, there is little chance that any of what I would say would get past people's mental "filters."

Keep in mind that if you aren't part of the solution, you're part of the problem. The most important thing you can do right now to start being part of the solution is to educate yourself and, if you can, others. Learn to see past all the B.S. Get involved somehow. A lot of what you might learn can be very discouraging, but we must not give up or lose hope however difficult the task. We must defeat defeatism. Face reality and do something. If there is nothing in your life worth fighting for, there is nothing worth living for. We need to realize that if we are willing to trade our freedom for temporary security, we deserve neither and will lose both. Timid men may prefer the calm of despotism to the tempestuous sea of liberty, but as for me; give me liberty or give me death.

"If ye love wealth greater than liberty, the tranquility of servitude greater than the animating contest for freedom, depart from us in peace. We seek not your counsel, nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you; and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen." -Samuel Adams
