A Proper Gander At Propaganda

Truth Transcends Community

"Propaganda in the United States is spread by both government and media entities. Propaganda is information, ideas, or rumors deliberately spread widely to influence opinions. It's used in advertising, radio, newspaper, posters, books, television, and other media."  -  Propaganda in the United States - Wikipedia

Help Wanted: Life Actors For Life Long Governmental Role Playing Gigs

 

An Appropriate Pied Piper Propaganda Preface

"Some of the phenomena of this process are criticized—the manipulation of news, the inflation of personality, and the general ballyhoo by which politicians and commercial products and social ideas are brought to the consciousness of the masses. The instruments by which public opinion is organized and focused may be misused. But such organization and focusing are necessary to orderly life. As civilization has become more complex, and as the need for invisible government has been increasingly demonstrated, the technical means have been invented and developed by which opinion may be regimented. With the printing press and the newspaper, the railroad, the telephone, telegraph, radio and airplanes, ideas can be spread rapidly and even instantaneously over the whole of America.  H. G. Wells senses the vast potentialities of these inventions when he writes in the New York Times: 

"Modern means of communication—the power afforded by print, telephone, wireless and so forth, of rapidly putting through directive strategic or technical conceptions to a great number of cooperating centers, of getting quick replies and effective discussion—have opened up a new world of political processes. Ideas and phrases can now be given an effectiveness greater than the effectiveness of any personality and stronger than any sectional interest. The common design can be documented and sustained against perversion and betrayal. It can be elaborated and developed steadily and widely without personal, local and sectional misunderstanding." 

What Mr. Wells says of political processes is equally true of commercial and social processes and all manifestations of mass activity. The groupings and affiliations of society to-day are no longer subject to "local and sectional" limitations. When the Constitution was adopted, the unit of organization was the village community, which produced the greater part of its own necessary commodities and generated its group ideas and opinions by personal contact and discussion directly among its citizens. But to-day, because ideas can be instantaneously transmitted to any distance and to any number of people, this geographical integration has been supplemented by many other kinds of grouping, so that persons having the same ideas and interests may be associated and regimented for common action even though they live thousands of miles apart."

What was the original medium of government?

Hearsay world of mouth bull shat.


People Love Sharing Stories

"The history of journalism, or the development of the gathering and transmitting of news spans the growth of technology and trade, marked by the advent of specialized techniques for gathering and disseminating information on a regular basis that has caused, as one history of journalism surmises, the steady increase of "the scope of news available to us and the speed with which it is transmitted. Before the printing press was invented, word of mouth was the primary source of news. Returning merchants, sailors and travelers brought news back to the mainland, and this was then picked up by pedlars and travelling players and spread from town to town. Ancient scribes often wrote this information down. This transmission of news was highly unreliable, and died out with the invention of the printing press. Newspapers (and to a lesser extent magazines) have always been the primary medium of journalists since the 18th century, radio and television in the 20th century, and the Internet in the 21st century."

sourceHistory of journalism - Wikipedia

"News is information about current events. Journalists provide news through many different media, based on word of mouth, printing, postal systems, broadcasting, electronic communication, and also on their own testimony, as witnesses of relevant events. Common topics for news reports include war, government, politics, education, health, the environment, economy, business, and entertainment, as well as athletic events, quirky or unusual events. Government proclamations, concerning royal ceremonies, laws, taxes, public health, criminals, have been dubbed news since ancient times. Humans exhibit a nearly universal desire to learn and share news, which they satisfy by talking to each other and sharing information. Technological and social developments, often driven by government communication and espionage networks, have increased the speed with which news can spread, as well as influenced its content. The genre of news as we know it today is closely associated with the newspaper, which originated in China as a court bulletin and spread, with paper and printing press, to Europe."

"Evidence suggests that cultures around the world have found a place for people to share stories about interesting new information. Among Zulus, Mongolians, Polynesians, and American Southerners, anthropologists have documented the practice of questioning travelers for news as a matter of priority. Sufficiently important news would be repeated quickly and often, and could spread by word of mouth over a large geographic area. Even as printing presses came into use in Europe, news for the general public often travelled orally via monks, travelers, town criers, etc

News is also transmitted in public gathering places, such as the Greek forum and the Roman baths. Starting in England, coffeehouses served as important sites for the spread of news, even after telecommunications became widely available. In the Muslim world, people have gathered and exchanged news at mosques and other social places. Travelers on pilgrimages to Mecca traditionally stay at caravanserais, roadside inns, along the way, and these places have naturally served as hubs for gaining news of the world. In late medieval Britain, reports ("tidings") of major events were a topic of great public interest, as chronicled in Chaucer's 1380 The House of Fame and other works."

Uncle Sam Needs Willing Simulated Victims

Want a chance to get a new identity and to get relocated after you play your part in some drill gone "live" that will magically morph into an "actual" historical event?

Want to grow up to be a life long employed, governmental plant?

Witness relocation programs have many uses as do non-disclosure agreements, National Security laws and buckets of money. As it turns out, the CIA and other military agencies are more interested in cultural creation and manipulation than actual espionage. The CIA would seem to be more of a creative intellectual property generating agency than anything else. CIA agents would seem to be better defined as creative artists than as James Bond type of super spy, gals and guys.

Live Action Role Playing Actors wanted For Governmental Gigs

As far as a lot of us can tell, the CIA and other military Defense Intelligence operations are a lot less about James Bond style, Hollywood lights, camera and action, espionage activity and a lot more about spreading rumor, dis-information and mis-information. Do such agents live among us waiting to be activated? Are such people employed like live action chess pieces on global, theatrical, chess board? Is such an idea of a life actor with governmental life long contracted and security clearance gig that insane and unfounded? Death penally punishment for treason and buckets of money would go a long way to keep mouths shut. The fact that international mainstream media and the governments of the world are run as one by international banking managers behind the scenes is a huge clue that you do not mess with the U.S. or any other high-level governmental agency. 

Could the Wall Street worker down the block be a college recruited CIA operative? Don't obviously staged News stories need security clearance possessing crisis actors to play their parts?


Spies Like Us: Is There Gold To Pan From What Would Seem To Be Deceptive Propaganda Sand?

YouTube video: "My Life as a CIA Spy: A Surprisingly Honest Behind-the-Scenes Look of a Real-Life Agent (2005)" (see below)

Layers of multimedia noise and lies protects the truth. Governmental secret agencies are more like global theater troops. Pay attention to this account, it sounds like this supposed former CIA agent was being trained as a car driving stuntwoman for Hollywood productions. Does her story sound credible? I think at least some if it does. It makes sense that they would train their agents to drive like daredevils in the context of Project Gladio style public relations manipulations. The training this agent describes is itself clearly a role-playing exercise. Very interesting in the context of the CIA, the U.S. Military and Hollywood being run as one from top down, since the creation of Hollywood in the first place.


A Little Boy's Global Game

"The farm, it occurred to me, was all part of an elaborate game for men who had never really grown up."

"The world of espionage, I thought warily, might well just be a global playing field of this little boy's game".

Lindsay Moran: former clandestine officer for the Central Intelligence Agency,

"My Life as a CIA Spy: A Surprisingly Honest Behind-the-Scenes Look of a Real-Life Agent (2005)"


This agent's account sounds like she was being trained to be a stunt driving crisis actor.

In my opinion the military minds of governments of the world spend their time running a continuous simulation of the world by way of endless drills of all kinds. I think too some of these drills and simulations are presented to the public as real events. 9/11 and many other events are examples of this exact modus operandi. Governmental employees are on need to know basis, how many of these assets are engaged in role playing exercises without their knowledge? CIA and other such governmental agents come across as mis-info and dis-info agents who actually exist to mislead the mass public into buying into governmental narratives. These assets are then employed in all sorts of capacities being activated as needed and moved about the globe like role playing chess pieces on world stage. Such assets become witnesses, victims and even News journalists themselves. We are supposed to believe that our mainstream News media is free from governmental oversight and nothing could be further from the truth. The media was always powerful propaganda weapon for international governmental interest. The history of mass communications is easily researched. The internet makes it  as easy as a Google search. Government has always controlled mass communication systems for obvious reason.

Fake News Flashback 9/11: What Did We Learn Since That Fatal Day?

9/11 Was The Mother of All Fake News Events, A Governmental Drill Gone Live

The official explanation for the demotions of the huge massive Twin Towers is absurd. Nonsense is not real science. Government backed fantasy is no substitute for common sense based rationality. Fake 9/11 passenger jet footage is computer generated cartoon evidence of nothing. Neither cartoon nor even real passenger jets can replace carefully rigged demolitions. 9/11 was the ultimate inside job. Most people buy into the official narrative due to the influence of governmental backed News media and the psychological power that mainstream media has over human imagination. This is the true magical power of mass produced, governmental backed, illusionist deception. The communications grid is the real medium for the real WMD of governmental might: dramatic and emotionally engaging propaganda fantasies sold as historical fact.

see: Operation Mockingbird - Wikipedia

Government as we understand it today would not exist without the power of the ever "evolving" multimedia beast.

The demolition of the Twin Towers was in my opinion a true feat of actual human engineering teamwork and coordination on many levels that shows us the true power of international governmental might. The weaponry of military legend might not be as we have seen on screens, but the real demonstrable power of government is the impressive control it has over mainstream communications media and the power it has to engineer and coordinate an event on the scale of the Septemebr 11th, 2001 event. This is the real super power of coordinated governmental might. In the case of 9/11 that coordination would seem to involve more local authorities than most be inclined to consider. Is there a history for such an "occulted" or esoteric kind of infrastructure? It appears that mainstream encyclopedia, university history would indicate that yes, Virginia, Freemasons really were (and some still are) international spy like guys who worked (and work) for British Majesty, just like James Bond. Could James Bond really be your brother in law? What about the guy who works on Wall Street and who mows his lawn at 6 am every saturday like religious clockwork? Ever hear of the Ghost Army from World War Two? One their many illusion tricks, involved them going  into taverns and cafes throughout France spreading false rumors meant to be overheard by local populace. The soldiers of this special unit of artists brag about it in the documentary I have linked to many times. What this article is going to speculate about is based on what would seem to be actual documented official history, with the difference being that we now read between the lines and consider information like Ghost Armies and Lookout Mountain Film Studios and the rest as forms of limited hangouts of information that might seek to get us to stop thinking before we consider the possible implications further and realize the very real possibilities of Hollywood produced Military grade film fakery. That's what 9/11 was. 9/11 represents the real power of the true weapon of mass destruction, the powerful moving images crafted by two dimensional Adobe After Effects computer artists and blasted out into every mind within televised reach. The real terrorists have always been state sponsored News journalists.

Secret society groups of past ages simply become the governmental agencies and Council on Foreign Relations style bodies of today.

World Staged Live Action Role Players Wanted For Governmental Theatrical Propaganda Productions: Offering The Best Possible Retirement Package Ever!

I'm not trying to promote paranoia, I am just trying to consider some options to explain how cartoon passenger jets could seemingly kill real people. I live in the suburbs of New York City and used to work there. I was in the city on 9/11, but this is not my 9/11 story, which is irrelevant. I was inconvenienced that day, nothing more. My location is relevant. There are some of us here, outside of New York City, who know something is wrong with the official 9/11 story. Of course we are in the minority. Most people around here buy into a lot, if not all of the official 9/11 catechism, hook line and sinker and that is the point of this article. Around here people claim to know people who died on 9/11 and this belief seems to prevent them from beginning to understand the true ramifications of the events of that day. Even some of us who understand that passenger jets cannot demolish massive steel towers still believe people died that day. The questions I have are who really died on 9/11 and how did they die? Did anyone die at all as a result of (what can only be) demolitions? At least some of the post 9/11 interviews with supposed grieving spouses and family seem to have the hallmark signs of duping delight, lottery winning level excitement, which leads me to believe that these supposed grieving people are prepared crisis actors and nothing more.

The numerous interviews with the supposed victim's friends and families serve no real purpose other than obvious propaganda ones. These highly charge, emotional interviews exist to provide the human narrative context we are supposed to relate to. We are supposed to turn off our individual critical judgement in favor of emotional responses to the multimedia barrage of News media product. We are not supposed to notice any and all obvious flaws and contradictions with official accounts.

Word of mouth hearsay is the oldest medium of government and still exists. Government was grown from this basic seed.

New York City is an international, Federal, banking, marketing, adversing, and multimedia, News capital city. The suburbs of New York City is a place where there's plenty of Hollywood film and television production and is also home to many who work in the city itself, which would include Federal, state and city employees and also people with international based business interests, of course.

The CIA is well known for college level recruitment. Is it crazy to ponder the idea that there are spies among those of us who live outside of cities like New York? Is it insane to consider the possibility that these people would live and work among us with the purpose of promoting propaganda rumor by old school word of mouth hearsay?

THE SCIENCE OF COERCION 

"Effective persuasion and propaganda were (and are) widely viewed as a relatively rational alternative to the extraordinary brutality and expense of conventional war. Persuasive mass communication can improve military operations without increasing casualties, its advocates contend, especially when encouraging a cornered enemy to surrender rather than fight to the death. Similarly, by supporting the morale and improving the command and control of their own forces, those who can exploit these techniques reap clear military advantages. More fundamentally, U.S. security agencies see propaganda and psychological warfare as a means to extend the influence of the U.S. government far beyond the territories that can be directly controlled by U.S. soldiers, and at a relatively modest cost."

Government, as we understand it today, relies on an ever growing and morphing multimedia noise machine to exist. Life actors seem to be part of the show.

"A cult of personality arises when an individual uses mass media to create an idealized and heroic public image, often through unquestioning flattery and praise. The hero personality then advocates the positions that the propagandist desires to promote. For example, modern propagandists hire popular personalities to promote their ideas and/or products."

There are no small parts:

Life actor parts might be local and small or world wide and televised, larger than life, Trump style.

As I understand it, and none of this is from any primary source, all of it is second hand, that yes there were real victims of the 9/11 tragedy, believe it or not. I am inclined to say not, despite the seeming honesty of the literally two accounts I have heard of. These are all "grapevine" accounts of course.

Perhaps people got caught in something they should not have and paid terrible price. Perhaps someone high up screwed up. Or perhaps there's more to the way the world works than meets proverbial eye. This kind of speculation is the subject of this particular article. I'm not trying to convince anyone of anything. All I am doing is asking questions. I have no idea what really happened on 9/11 or exactly how it was done other than what I or anyone, can glean from how the Towers were constructed and from all the videos we can watch online, which does indicate how the Twin Towers were demolished and no, cartoon passenger jets just won't do any more so than the real things could have. The official explanation is simply ridiculous.

I think both construction and destruction of the Twin Towers impressive feats of engineering and real achievements 20th century science and teamwork. Moon walking could only exist on TV screen, but the Towers were real and they were really there one day and gone the next. The truth is after watching hours and days and weeks of that footage, all most of us recall of that day is what we saw on a screen. Not a reliable memory by any means, as we now know. 

The official 9/11 story is officially a governmentally absurd lie. More would notice if the News wasn't on governmental side. Passenger jets could never even come close to doing what only careful demolitions work could accomplish. No magic top secret weapon or any other explanation makes sense to me. The explanation that works best is still amazing, in my opinion. 9/11 was the ultimate insider demolitions and public relations job and carefully controlled propaganda media event that would bring real tears to Edward Bernays' eyes.

"Science Of Coercion Communication Research Psychological Warfare"

"Communication research is a small but intriguing field in the social sciences. This relatively new specialty crystallized into a distinct discipline within sociology — complete with colleges, curricula, the authority to grant doctorates, and so forth — between about 1950 and 1955. Today it underlies most college- and graduate-level training for print and broadcast journalists, public relations and advertising personnel, and the related craftspeople who might be called the "ideological work- ers" of contemporary U.S. society."

"Government psychological warfare programs helped shape mass communication research into a distinct scholarly field, strongly influencing the choice of leaders and determining which of the competing scientific paradigms of communication would be funded, elaborated, and encouraged to prosper. The state usually did not directly determine what scientists could or could not say, but it did significantly influence the selection of who would do the "authoritative" talking in the field. This book takes up three tasks. First, it outlines the history of U.S. psychological warfare between 1945 and 1960, discussing the basic theories, activities, and administrative structure of this type of com- munication enterprise. Second, it looks at the contributions made by prominent mass communication researchers and institutions to that en- terprise. Third, it examines the impact of psychological warfare pro- grams on widely held preconceptions about communication and science within the field of communication research itself."
