A Proper Gander At Propaganda


PLEASE NOTE: This is not a conspiracy theory blog.

This website exists to serve as public resource for reverse imagineering world-wide culture, one that takes a critical look at the numerous artifacts and other types of relics that represent our shared collective international heritage. This blog is dedicated to examining social engineering and the use of tax funded governmental propaganda, and the mainstream media, as international human resource management tools.

About The AA Morris Proper Gander At Propaganda Podcast: Coming to you from one of the suburban metropolitan melting pots of international culture, outside of one of the multimedia capitals of the world, New York City, the Proper Gander at Propaganda podcast is meant to be a filter free look at our shared international cultural heritage, our shared social media infused and obsessed present, and what our children and their children could be looking forward to. This link will bring you to the podcast page of this website, with embedded squarespace audio: link: http://www.aamorris.net/podcast/

Annie Jacobsen: Inside DARPA - The Pentagon's Brain


The real DARPA target:

The minds and imaginations of the tax paying, non combatant citizenry are the true enemies of government. In other words, the government uses our taxes to fund art and media designed to socially engineer humanity itself.

The basic modus operandi involves the use of art and theater to grow more tax burdensome government, on international scale.

Annie Jacobsen: Inside DARPA: The Pentagon's Brain

“The internet, GPS, voice recognition programs like Siri - many of the technologies that we use today were developed with national security in mind. These inventions and many others began as projects of the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), the Defense Department's secretive military research agency.”

"DARPA launched the Narrative Networks program to understand how narratives influence human cognition and behavior, and apply those findings in .."

"Why do people accept and act on certain kinds of information while dismissing others? Why are some narrative themes successful at building support for terrorism? What role can narratives play in causing—and helping to treat—Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)? These questions deal with the role narratives play in human psychology and sociology, and their answers have strategic implications for defense missions. DARPA launched the Narrative Networks program to understand how narratives influence human cognition and behavior, and apply those findings in international security contexts. The program aims to address the factors that contribute to radicalization, violent social mobilization, insurgency, and terrorism among foreign populations, and to support conflict prevention and resolution, effective communication and innovative PTSD treatments. Narratives may consolidate memory, shape emotions, cue heuristics and biases in judgment, and influence group distinctions. To determine their influence on cognitive functions requires a working theory of narratives, an understanding of what role they play in security contexts, and an examination of how to systematically analyze narratives and their psychological and neurobiological impact."

Narrative framing using sacred values

"A listener's psychological reaction to narrated events is influenced by how the narrator frames the events, appealing to different values, knowledge, and experiences of the listener. Narrative framing that targets the sacred values of the listener, including core personal, nationalistic, and/or religious values, is particularly effective at influencing the listener's interpretation of narrated events. These values are closely tied with the psychology of identity, emotion, moral decision making, and social cognition. When sacred framing is applied to mundane issues, those issues can gain properties of sacred values and result in a strong aversion to using conventional reasoning to interpret them. In our research, we seek to understand the linguistic and neuropsychological mechanisms underlying the effectiveness of narrative framing using sacred values in influencing a listener's interpretation of events."
