In a world that is forever falling...

We need someone to come and save us.

"The most terrifying words in the English language are: I'm from the government and I'm here to help."   Ronald Reagan Radio Rodeo Circus Clown

Chew your own brain food.

"We the people" makes for a wonderful marketing slogan doesn't it? It's a shame there is no 'we' in the United States. Are all News stories fake, are all news stories real? No room for any spectrum in between? Perhaps it is wiser to tune it all out. The News media is a noise machine designed to filter and screen reality. NASA fakery and its cost pales in comparison to all the tax funds needed to build all the ever increasing layers of governmental beast. Washington DC used to be filled with fields of sheep eating grass. Now DC is filled with an army of steel towers reaching for the sky. The News media keeps alive the belief that we need government protection from all sorts of existential threats none of us can verify for ourselves. Instead we must rely on trusted news sources and governmental decrees. We are not supposed to notice that the news media is a chicken little press that constantly reports wolves falling from the sky. The chicken little news caster has been telling us the wolves were going to eat the world since the 1950's. Yet we still wait in proverbial bomb shelters for the atomic wolf crap to hit allegorical fan. The promised nightmare of nuclear annihilation is an empty threat that has been used to grow more and more government.

Dumb or Just Hopelessly Stupid?

"A vain emperor who cares about nothing except wearing and displaying clothes hires two con-men weavers who promise him the finest, best suit of clothes from a fabric invisible to anyone who is either unfit for his position or "hopelessly stupid". The emperor's ministers cannot see the clothes themselves, but pretend that they can for fear of appearing unfit for their positions, and the emperor does the same. Finally, the weavers report that the suit is finished, they mime dressing him, and the emperor marches in procession before his subjects. The townsfolk play along with the pretense, not wanting to appear unfit for their positions or stupid. Then, a child in the crowd, too young to understand the desirability of keeping up the pretense, blurts out that the emperor is wearing nothing at all, and the cry is taken up by others. The emperor realizes the assertion is true but continues the procession."

History Is A Weapon

"Only through the active energy of the intelligent few can the public at large become aware of and act upon new ideas. Small groups of persons can, and do, make the rest of us think what they please about a given subject."     Edward Bernays

Rallying A New Reality

News media promoted rallies are part of the show in the sense that these events are designed to get people to further engage with the political system, not in terms of truly getting the system to serve humanity, but to further the childish false political divide and an endless political quest for the proverbial promised land of myth and legendary fame. Hippie protests, anti-nuke rallies, global greenhouse causes and the rest of the save the world rallies have done nothing to end any perceived problem. Vietnam, for instance, ended when it was scheduled to do so and not a moment sooner. No hippie can take credit for ending that "war". Following governmental divide and conquer style agents of limited hang outs does nothing to put one one the road to sanity and reason.

Waving fists in the air and getting angry over NASA illusions, Zapruder filmed cartoon assassinations and the rest is a childish response that the media programmed into the public consciousness a long time ago, and still does to this day. Celebrities of all types, both overtly political and some not so, act like social shepherds like they always have and people tend to follow along, like they have always done. The Pied Piper story is an apt allegory for how history really works.

Telephone Game Word of Mouth Hearsay Is A Great Medium For Governmental Lie

I knew someone who claimed they worked with someone who knew someone who knew someone who knew a victim of the Newtown Sandyhook event. I know someone who knows someone who claimed to have lost a loved one on 9/11. I know someone who claims to have witnessed the planes hit the towers on that fine and sunny September day. I wonder how that person could see cartoon Adobe After Effects passenger jets, as projected hologram is nothing but science fiction myth.

I remember years ago, not soon after 2001, my friends and I pondered the weird fate of those towers on that day and only one other one besides me thought it odd that such a thing could be. Yet the rest of us thought official explanation sound and back to sleep we all went. Yet obvious and demonstrable reality means that the damage done on 9/11 couldn't be the result of passenger jet fun. Even if someone did indeed fly a jet into a steel scraper of the sky, there would be debris thrown all over lower Manhattan for many to find. News media promoted stupidity is a real crime. Aluminum tubes filled mostly with air and kerosene cannot destroy steel in around something like two hours time. A bulldozer can easily take a passenger jet apart. Unlike controlled demolitions, passenger jet junk yard deconstruction is not an art. A passenger jet is made of aluminum and fibre glass and the wings are fragile things that cannot penetrate steel webbing.

There's always the illogic of crowd psychology and word of mouth hearsay. This is the foundational way we all stay generationally and collectively dumbed down and tax enslaved to governmental authority, slowly boiling our God given gifts away.

An Edward Bernays For The Modern Age

"For anyone in need of angry protesters, attentive paparazzi or adoring fans, there’s Crowds on Demand (COD), an 11-month-old California startup that says it can organize any small or large group within a week’s time. It’s an unusual concept, but one that could no doubt fill an undeniable niche at a time when motivating people outside of the digital world is becoming more and more of a challenge.

Adam Swart, COD’s founder and chief executive, said the idea first came to him on vacation in Eastern Europe, when he stepped off an airplane and saw someone being greeted by an enthusiastic crowd and a car service on the tarmac.

“I really thought they must be someone important, but I didn’t recognize them,” he said in a phone interview. “And I got to thinking: Wouldn’t people think I was important if I had those same surroundings? Why not make a company that lets everyone live the life of an A-lister?”

Founded in Sept. 2012, COD began as a service for wannabe celebrities looking for a little taste of star treatment. But it has since expanded into an all-purpose people provider, delivering enthusiastic crowds for corporate PR stunts, political protests, self-promotion or anyone who wants to experience an “It’s all about me” day.

For instance, Swart said an Internet-advertising firm recently hired COD to stage a fake rally at a business conference in New York City, where protesters gathered outside the event and pretended to rail against Website banner ads. The anti-banner ad protest lent credence to COD’s client, which specialized in alternative online advertising solutions.

“We made a whole lot of visibility for them,” Swart said. “As everyone was coming into the convention center they saw a huge protest outside. That company said this event we did for them increased their sales by 500 percent.”"

"A foreign government hired Crowds on Demand to help generate a positive reception for its newly elected leader during the UN General Assembly. The concern was ensuring that the leader was well received by a US audience and confident for his work at the UN. We created demonstrations of support with diverse crowds. We also used the media primarily local and national outlets to bring more attention to these demonstrations which led to a mostly positive portrayal. The crowds that we deployed drew in more supporters creating a strong presence for this leader at the UN and an improved perception of him by the American public.

Reach out and we will give you a complimentary and confidential assessment of how we can help your campaign succeed."

The News Media Cannot Be Trusted

It is not wise to trust a propaganda snake oil noise beast that only exists to dumb down human minds and limit imagination for governmental purpose more so than not. Financial incentive and the echo news fed nature of the news media clearly demonstrates how the game is played. It is propaganda and not much more. I am of the opinion that it is wiser to ignore the news media and its soap operatic fare. What they sell is mental poison not nutrition. And I think it smart to not trust the chicken little news press that has lied time and time again about a great number of things. There is good reason to be skeptical of highly sensationalized stories with clear political angles. I am not talking about the cat getting caught in the tree kind of news story. Not all news is fake, but the more reported national attention grabbing headlines are more than likely, at the very least, manipulated and fudged in some manner.  I would recommend ignoring major media stories and that one focuses on that which they themselves can personally verify. I also recommend avoiding taking hearsay as evidence. Word of mouth is the earliest medium of governance and we humans are error prone beings capable of being deceptive to others and to even ourselves. We human beings are in general decent creatures with benign intent, but there are a few of us here and there who enjoy putting one over on the rest. We call these people spies and liars and kings and princes and presidents and popes, et al. Humanity seems to enjoy being shepherded by the opinions and visions of the few.

The Power of Moving Images

"The American motion picture is the greatest unconscious carrier of propaganda in the world to-day. It is a great distributor for ideas and opinions. The motion picture can standardize the ideas and habits of a nation. Because pictures are made to meet market demands, they reflect, emphasize and even exaggerate broad popular tendencies, rather than stimulate new ideas and opinions. The motion picture avails itself only of ideas and facts which are in vogue. As the newspaper seeks to purvey news, it seeks to purvey entertainment. "

"Another instrument of propaganda is the personality. Has the device of the exploited personality been pushed too far? President Coolidge photographed on his vacation in full Indian regalia in company with full-blooded chiefs, was the climax of a greatly over-reported vacation. Obviously a public personality can be made absurd by misuse of the very mechanism which helped create it. Yet the vivid dramatization of personality will always remain one of the functions of the public relations counsel. The public instinctively demands a personality to typify a conspicuous corporation or enterprise."

The News Media Hollywood Noise Machine

The Chicken Little Who Cried Wolf Press Need To Be Nuked

This allegorical hydra headed propaganda generating animal is the real weapon of mass destruction used by government to keep the mass public in its servile place. We exist to serve the ever growing system of inhuman governance; it does not exist to serve us. I would hope this is a fact of life that becomes apparent to those of us who have lived a while. News and governmental crisis come and go and the world never seems to manage to end, despite all promises otherwise.

One can easily use the internet as the library it is and see how government, Hollywood and yellow journal press have always existed to create mythic personality products for people to believe in and adopt. Women didn't always wear make up, stockings and bras, after all. Now commercial interests salivate with dreamy imaginings of selling such product to men as well.

It's all about crafting cultural paradigms.

Small Groups Remote Control The Mass of Slobs

"The new propaganda, having regard to the constitution of society as a whole, not infrequently serves to focus and realize the desires of the masses. A desire for a specific reform, however widespread, cannot be translated into action until it is made articulate, and until it has exerted sufficient pressure upon the proper law-making bodies. Millions of housewives may feel that manufactured foods deleterious to health should be prohibited. But there is little chance that their individual desires will be translated into effective legal form unless their half expressed demand can be organized, made vocal, and concentrated upon the state legislature or upon the Federal Congress in some mode which will produce the results they desire. Whether they realize it or not, they call upon propaganda to organize and effectuate their demand.  But clearly it is the intelligent minorities which need to make use of propaganda continuously and systematically. In the active proselytizing minorities in whom selfish interests and public interests coincide lie the progress and development of America. Only through the active energy of the intelligent few can the public at large become aware of and act upon new ideas. Small groups of persons can, and do, make the rest of us think what they please about a given subject. But there are usually proponents and opponents of every propaganda, both of whom are equally eager to convince the majority."

Media Massages Matter

"THE media by which special pleaders transmit their messages to the public through propaganda include all the means by which people to-day transmit their ideas to one another. There is no means of human communication which may not also be a means of deliberate propaganda, because propaganda is simply the establishing of reciprocal understanding between an individual and a group. The important point to the propagandist is that the relative value of the various instruments of propaganda, and their relation to the masses, are constantly changing. If he is to get full reach for his message he must take advantage of these shifts of value the instant they occur. Fifty years ago, the public meeting was a propaganda instrument par excellence.

To-day it is difficult to get more than a handful of people to attend a public meeting unless extraordinary attractions are part of the program. The automobile takes them away from home, the radio keeps them in the home, the successive daily editions of the newspaper bring information to them in office or subway, and also they are sick of the ballyhoo of the rally. Instead there are numerous other media of communication, some new, others old but so transformed that they have become virtually new. The newspaper, of course, remains always a primary medium for the transmission of opinions and ideas—in other words, for propaganda. It was not many years ago that newspaper editors resented what they called "the use of the news columns for propaganda purposes." Some editors would even kill a good story if they imagined its publication might benefit any one.

This point of view is now largely abandoned. To-day the leading editorial offices take the view that the real criterion governing the publication or non-publication of matter which comes to the desk is its news value. The newspaper cannot assume, nor is it its function to assume, the responsibility of guaranteeing that what it publishes will not work out to somebody's interest. There is hardly a single item in any daily paper, the publication of which does not, or might not, profit or injure somebody. That is the nature of news. What the newspaper does strive for is that the news which it publishes shall be accurate, and (since it must select from the mass of news material available) that it shall be of interest and importance to large groups of its readers. 

In its editorial columns the newspaper is a personality, commenting upon things and events from its individual point of view. But in its news columns the typical modern American newspaper attempts to reproduce, with due regard to news interest, the outstanding events and opinions of the day."
