You've only got to look at politics and it's labels to realise it's all controled for our consumption.
We have left wing, right wing, democrap and conserva#e, communism, fascism. Most ppl think that's ALL there is, no possibilities outside those
And ppl label themselves from these minimal choices and think they're so clever and smug and know what's good for the rest of us.
It's all designed to keep us from thinking there is any other possibility.
Look what happens when any person or movement that doesn't fit the excepted form of thinking and is a threat to the status quo.
That person or movement is first off discredited some way using the media to spread lies to the general public.
The hippie/peace movement of the 60's. People were starting to question too much, throwing off the shackles of "normal" society too much.
So what happens? Conveniently along comes Charlie Manson (who was not a hippie btw) and he becomes, in the media, the poster boy for the hippie
movement, discrediting it and thus killing any further advances it could have made. The hippies of course were not fooled, but the general public
The Punk movement 1976, same thing, people were thinking for themselves, questioning too much, looking at alternatives to a life under the thumb of
the rich and powerful. The rich and powerful were shaking in their boots.
Again conveniantly along comes Sid Vicous (far from being a real think for yourself punk) and the rest is history.
Waco ditto, it goes on and on.
Drugs also play a big part, spread lies in the media about drug taking hippies and those that follow a movement after the media gets a hold of it
thinks that what they should do to be hippies. Forget working for change, just take drugs.
I'm not saying those ppl didn't do what they did, it's just that the media picks up on the negative and all of a sudden all hippies are Carles
Mansons and all punks are Sid Viciouses. And then you get the 2nd wave (the sheep) that usualy comes after the media blitz who live up to what the
media portrayed that movement as, not what it really was to begin with. That's why you get druged up punks who wear studed leather and have bad
attitudes. That's not what it was about in the beggining. Punk was a media invented term anyway, the first punks didn't call themselves that.
The media is used very efectively to keep us in line and to suppress any threat to the system.
