This is excellent and needs to be read and thought about. It completely describes
By Rogan Scott Knight, DailySpiral.com – March 2014
Forgive the shameless reference to the Led Zeppelin song but the title is pertinent to what I’m writing about today.
We all have different perspectives of what we see, hear and ultimately, choose to believe but what is real? What is true?
How can we trust that what we are told by our family, our friends, the media and most importantly, what our government tells us is the truth? Most of us will have a hard time accepting the fact that our close friends and family members would lie to us, but what if they are just misinformed? What if we were all misinformed and have been for a very long time?
I contend that a good 90% of everything we have ever been taught to be true by any authority or official source of information has either been: altered to support a certain viewpoint, a particular ideology, a religious or political agenda, or is an outright lie.
You have heard it said that “history is written by the winners”.
Well, in any major war or conflict where a clash of ideologies has been the point of contention, the loser’s voice of dissent is either marginalized or silenced. When we consider what we are told and why we should believe it, is the mere propagation and repetition of the “official story” really sufficient to deem it credible and truthful? Certainly not! That’s why this misinformation is called Propaganda!
Propaganda is simply the act of repeating a story, whether accurate or not, as often and for as long as possible until it is accepted by the majority as the truth. For instance, many people have seen the Geico insurance commercial that states “15 minutes can save 15% on car insurance” to which someone in the commercial will eventually say “everyone knows that”. This is an example of pure, blatant propaganda. Undoubtedly, many of you reading this article now have seen these commercials, even laughed at the satirical humor in them and have come to accept as fact that it would take you no more than 15 minutes to save 15% on your car insurance…just because you like the commercial and it made you laugh! This is the power of propaganda.
Joseph Goebbels, minister of propaganda for the Nazi Third Reich once said: “If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.”
Unfortunately, for us and most of the people in the developed world, the financial, corporate, governmental and industrial powers have banded together to use the media to propagate their version of history, culture, religion and science for the sole purpose of getting people to think and behave the way they want them to.
THIS is what should never be because it is called SLAVERY!
We have truly come to a place in the history of our species where every bit of information we come in contact with has to be called into question because of the vast power of these titanic sociopolitical influences who literally steer cultural shifts and societal norms through the control of the international media.
Newspapers, magazines, books, TV, movies, music, fashion, art, sports and all forms are entertainment are manipulated by this matrix of financial, governmental, corporate, scientific and religious control. The projected perception is that these forces seem separate and sometimes at odds but they work in concert together as a form of mind control we have come to know as civilization.
This is what IS and what should NEVER be!
We are teetering on the brink of financial and societal collapse because these forces have propagated a lie so big for so long, and have oppressed so many so shamelessly that it is about to collapse under the weight of its own deceit.
I won’t get into any conspiracy theories of when and how this cabal formed, but the why is of the utmost importance.
We have long established institutions, traditions and cherished belief systems that have been put into place for many centuries to control human behavior and development. If any of us will take an honest look around at the state of the world today, we will see the common good is not being served. There seems to be only a very small fraction of people benefit from all the chaos that exists in the world, and we have been led around by our wants and desires to support a system that victimizes us and has taught us from a very young age to ostracize, criticize and marginalize anyone who would in any way disturb the status quo. This is done through concepts known as nationalism, patriotism and statism.
A divided human species will continue to be a controlled human species, and where there is total control, how can anyone be free?
How can anyone of good conscience be free when others are oppressed? We, as Americans, talk a big game about freedom and democracy but when it comes down to the reality we are not free and we as a people have no real voice. We have rulers and owners…we have collars and leashes. The rulers are the politicians…they DO NOT represent you! The owners are the banks and corporations who are the REAL nations of this world today! Your collar is your “citizenship”…your birth certificate, your social security card, your drivers license; all voluntary contracts we have entered into that have relinquished our rights as sovereign human beings to the State. The leash is our so-called “Liberty“…which is only conditional permission to do as we want as long as we abide by arbitrary rules, codes, statutes and laws.
Disobey any of these ordinances and you are fined or caged. Do it often enough, your collar and leash are removed and you are sent to prison, sometimes for years, even when there was no victim in your alleged crime…other than the State, of course.
This is the civilization we have created. These are lies we have chosen to believe. This is the fear we have been ruled by for ages…the fear that we cannot live together and care for one another unless someone tells us how, when and where.
The most pathetic part is…we have been conditioned not to ask WHY! The few who do, such as I, will be attacked, ridiculed, despised and persecuted for having the audacity to ask: “why does it have to be this way?”
Perhaps many of you feel as I do; that there is something wrong with the world and there has to be a way to change it and make it better. Well, if you can make a change in your life and in your little corner of the world, and everyone else does the same, we do change the world!
I will leave you with a quote from the great Albert Einstein:
“The world is a dangerous place to live; not because of those who do evil, but because of the people that don’t do anything about it.”
