Until a few moths ago I simply scoffed at the idea of a NWO, world government or whatever. Now I am starting to believe that, if not the NWO, there's
sure some very dark power at work to turn us, the people, into slaves. Maybe a single world government won't come to power, but we are heading that
direction, when the few will control the many like puppets at the point of bayonet. The key issue for me was noticing how governments worldwide have
started to take a morbid interest in common people's lives. Don't eat that, don't drink that, if you do this you are a racist, if you do that you
are a terrorist... it may sound like an-overprotecting mother, but mothers don't use heavily armed police and jails to enforce their dicta. The world
citizen nowaday has to stay inside a set behaviour: he must work longer shifts, earn less, never question authority, don't question official history
and science, etc. The scary thing is that the behaviour is exactly the same in each country. The good world citizen is little more than the
"digestive system" Marxists talked about. What really made me "believe" is seeing how this is achieved. While there are surely instances of hard
laws being applied, the most effective methods are very, very subtle. The first one is guilt and regret. It's cheap, fast and works extremely well.
People are FORCED into feeling guilty about something or regret another thing, even if they have nothing to do with it. The second one is sample
characters: people is offered a choice of set characters that are succesful, well accepted into society and pushed toward imitation. If you look at
these people, you'll see they are the perfect puppets, brainwashed slaves or "useful idiots", as Lenin would have called them. The third one is
acceptance into society, and is strongly linked to the second point: you need to be accepted by the mass, otherwise you'll be an outcast for life.
The fourth one is convincing people that impopular measures are made for their "health" or "the common good": you all know too well what I am
talking about, and you know that it's not that hard. And what is the most powerful tool? It's simple: television. Once I only thought that it was a
degrading way to spend time, right now I think it's the most powerful tool of propaganda ever invented. If you want evidence, here it is: Rupert
Murdoch, the media giant, is the only western "eminence" that enjoys the full favor of the Chinese ruling class. Chinese chairmen and party leaders
line up to shake his hand, commend his good work continously, invite him over to dinner: no other westener has ever had these many honours. Need I say
more? Television can spread all of this quickly and, when the need arise, dumb down the average public, create consent or dissent, etc... Incredibly
scary, when you consider that there's a TV set in every home.
