its not about 'corporations', its about bias and ideologism in the media.


Or maybe the insane bias and insane ideologism of the few people involved in the ownership (and co-ownership) of the corporations.. who own the media?

Lots of speculation about the active agendas in play and suppose claims of 'cultural destablization' and 'precision propaganda' don't look as ridiculous now as they did 20 years ago.

Thought researcher Neil Sanders did make some valid points in the interviews below about soft journalism, Alpha state brainwaves and manufacturing consent.

There's also some extremely relevant information on the (Rockefeller funded) Tavistock institute concerning the creation of 'permanent social turbulence' and 'Reducing society to a blank state' (tabula rasa).




•Absolute viewer discretion advised as in the later segments he does describe some truly gruesome (alleged) CIA psyop warfare activities.

Nice thread. I've known this stuff for years but no one listens to me so I gave up trying. Here's a really cool video you may not have seen. Spin.



Using the 1992 presidential election as his springboard, documentary filmmaker Brian Springer captures the behind-the-scenes maneuverings of politicians and newscasters in the early 1990s. Pat Robertson banters about "homos," Al Gore learns how to avoid abortion questions, George Bush talks to Larry King about halcyon -- all presuming they're off camera. Composed of 100% unauthorized satellite footage, Spin is a surreal expose of media-constructed reality.

The notion that the plutocrats actually own our government and direct our media to support their narrative is preposterous to most, largely because they have been trained all their lives to see "corporations" as the overly bright child of one or two ridiculously smart and insightful men. While there is usually some truth to this, in the beginning, a successful multinational corporation rapidly evolves into a creature unto itself. Some, like Amazon, for instance, hold more wealth and have annual earnings that exceed the GDP of entire countries. They use this power accordingly and often directly. Like when they buy the Washington Post, for example.

Most of us have been conditioned to always see "Wall Street" and "the Government" as two powerful, often opposed forces. Breaking this conditioning is almost impossible(, as intended).

Thanks for the post SpanishArcher, the doco was already posted here (above the one detailing Bill Clinton's treasonous ChinaGate exploits) but certainly appreciate the addition.

Great post and yes looks like we've been living in a global corporatocracy for quite some time now - also interesting how Intel agencies (and certain Saudis) have managed to obtain control of the news media machine.

God knows what sociopathic agendas are in play but suppose the last thing they want is everyone knowing about it - maybe that's why there's now a concerted push by 'authorities' to criminalise conspiratorial opinion.

Of course! You are supposed to think the way they want you to think, say the things they want you to say and do the things they want you to do. Naturally, they hate it when you don't.

Naturally mate.


Lots and lots of people waking up to it though.



"Secrecy is the keystone to all tyranny. Not force, but secrecy and censorship. When any government or church for that matter, undertakes to say to its subjects, "This you may not read, this you must not know," the end result is tyranny and oppression, no matter how holy the motives.

Mighty little force is needed to control a man who has been hoodwinked in this fashion; contrariwise, no amount of force can control a free man, whose mind is free. No, not the rack nor the atomic bomb, not anything. You can't conquer a free man; the most you can do is kill him."

Most of us aren't ready. We need to believe that there are good and bad forces and that we are on the side of -- or support the good and not the bad. The thing is, money doesn't have sides, unless you count no money vs. mo money.

There may be a handful of well meaning human beings in office who ran to do the work of the people, but they are rare, and the longer they stay there, the rarer they get.

They take their marching orders from lobbyists who directly write their legislation for them. These lobbyists are employed by companies who themselves are employed by consortiums who are employed by shell companies in Panama and the Bahamas who are owned by a handful of incredibly wealthy corporate states.

They have no loyalty to ideology beyond money. Which is why the NBA will silence its own "stars" if those stars threaten the existing corporate order with China. It's also why Disney will go out of its way to sell LGBT characters to its domestic audience and scrub those characters from the Asian release without a second thought.

They don't believe in anything. They just want to see money (power) consolidated into the hands of their owners in hopes that they will be chosen too when and if the musical chairs song ever stops playing.

The government and the media are the two arms of these hypercorporate states. This isn't about capitalism or socialism or any of that nonsense. In fact, they gladly use either or a hybrid of both to get what they want: control over the earth and the people who live on it.

Our role in the US is to enforce the corporate order with shock and awe. The role of the Chinese is to tilt the normal supply/demand distribution so that it can be manipulated.

This knowledge is poison. Your contemporaries will hate you if you break programming in front of them.

Mate from what I can see it's corporate facism - the two worst words in the dictionary.
