Today The News Media is The Biblical Beast that Comes out of The Earth (it used to be The Catholic Church alone)
“The Beast (Greek: Θηρίον, Thērion) refers to two beasts described in the Book of Revelation. The first beast comes "out of the sea" and is given authority and power by the dragon; the second beast comes "out of the earth". This first beast is initially mentioned in Revelation 11:7 as coming out of the abyss. His appearance is described in detail in Revelation 13:1-10, and some of the mystery behind his appearance is revealed in Revelation 17:7-18. The second beast comes from "out of the earth" and directs all peoples of the earth to worship the first beast. The second beast is described in Revelation 13:11-18 and is also referred to as the false prophet. The two beasts are aligned with the dragon in opposition to God. They persecute the "saints" and those who do "not worship the image of the beast [of the sea]" and influence the kings of the earth to gather for the battle of Armageddon. The two beasts are defeated by Christ and are thrown into the lake of fire mentioned in Revelation 19:18-20.”
The Two Heads of the Holy Roman Empire were the Church and Feudalism. Today we have the News Media and the many layers of Government, as well as all the aforementioned older social control systems that still exist. There are many heads to this literal & mythical beast and more heads and inhuman beasts or systems, continue to grow. The biblical beasts represent systems of thought control of one kind or another and this is how mass behavior is shaped. The educational system and the military are other forms of the beast as are large scale commercial enterprises.
In other words the Beast is a metaphor for media that is used to mislead.
Disinforming the Public
Disinfo is an old game. Old media becomes new. Propaganda is no longer limited to TV, Radio, the Printed Word, or Word of Mouth, it is now online and interactive. Do not believe anything you see on any kind of screen, not without a whole lot of critical thought, at least. Yellow journalistic tactics of emotionally charged headlines are the order of the day. It is wise to start off as a skeptic and then to really educate oneself in the matter at hand and to always keep an open mind or as close to one as possible.
Screens are meant to filter and not reveal reality. There are many protective layers of lies that keep the truth occulted. The great reveal is simply the fact that most of what we think is real is not. The News is nothing but a neo-religion. The journalist is the new Rabbi and Priest and is meant to define the boundaries of human imagination. These are the modern shepherds and they sell lies more so than not. Snake oil sales and feudalism is the foundation of our modern global culture.
The military trains recruits in the various multimedia skills needed in today's social media environment. These people have security clearances. Today's new media is simply another incarnation of the old. Human minds have been programmed for centuries through the manipulative use of various kinds of multimedia. None of this is new.
"The Defense Information School, or DINFOS, is a United States Department of Defense (DoD) school located at Fort George G. Meade, Maryland. DINFOS fulfills the Department of Defense's need for an internal corps of professional journalists, broadcasters, and public affairs professionals."
"Members from all branches of the U.S. military, DoD civilians and international military personnel attend DINFOS for training in public affairs, print journalism, photojournalism, photography, television and radio broadcasting, lithography, equipment maintenance and various forms of multimedia. The American Council on Education recommends college credit for most DINFOS courses."
By the way, media criticism is not "Fake News".
Pointing out media lies is also not "Fake News".
Government is a Lie
We do not need all the layers of government. The real fear is people realizing we do not need to keep paying all we do in taxes to the States and Federal Governments. The real fear is we the people waking up and killing the beast for good. We need smaller more locally controlled bureaucracies that actually serve humanity. We do not need all the layers of government and external authority. The so-called Wars and other threats are simply not what we have been told. We need to believe we need governmental protection and oversight. Ours is a culture that is based on more myth than fact.
*** One Note about the video linked to above, we do not think the United States Government ever worked for the people and was demonstrably always (basically) a criminal racket designed to create more layers of controlling government that was not needed. What most of history is really about is reorganization of the corporate structures that control Global commerce and banking as we understand it. IN many ways. we are more taxed, fined and face more fees and jail time over personal behavior choices, despite recent social change, than before 1776. Our view is that politics is more theater than not. Presidents are shepherds and figureheads and are selected like all high level politicians. The game has always been rigged. See the article index for more.
We Don't Need Mary Poppins
Freedom does not look like modern culture. Adults are not children and do not need a "Governess". We live in a world where people accept all sorts of restrictions, fees, fines and taxes and think they are free. Despite all the wonderful social change of late, we are all feudal wage slaves still. The whole point of all the lies is to make sure the public never learns this basic truth. The toll roads and all the rest of the governmental fee based system is designed not for the benefit of the public good as much as it is designed for the benefit of ensuring commerce and profit. The taxes, fees and fines we pay do not end up serving the public good as much as one might be inclined to believe. Private enterprise profits from governmental schemes.
The Constitution is Just a Piece of Paper
Freedom is a natural state and cannot be granted by a piece of paper. Bills of Rights are designed to limit freedom and not grant it. Constitutions are meant to define the rights and powers of government - not the people. Ours is a yellow journalist inspired cartoon cargo cult culture. Overgrown children play dress up and make believe and run the world as a literal theatrical stage, as they have for centuries.
