yeah, fear is the greatest flaw of human emotion. if you can get inside of somebodies head, and scare them, you can control them any way you want, and these people are pros.
What was most interesting to me was a repetitive sentence that he said to me over and over again during the approximately four years that I had the opportunity to work with him. He said the strategy that was being used to educate the public and decision makers was to use scare tactics That was how we identify an enemy. The strategy that Wernher Von Braun taught me was that first the Russians are going to be considered to be the enemy. In fact, in 1974, they were the enemy, the identified enemy. We were told that they had "killer satellites". We were told that they were coming to get us and control us-that they were "Commies."
Then terrorists would be identified, and that was soon to follow. We heard a lot about terrorism. Then we were going to identify third-world country "crazies." We now call them Nations of Concern. But he said that would be the third enemy against whom we would build space-based weapons.
The next enemy was asteroids. Now, at this point he kind of chuckled the first time he said it.
Asteroids- against asteroids we are going to build space-based weapons.
And the funniest one of all was what he called aliens, extraterrestrials. That would be the final scare. And over and over and over during the four years that I knew him and was giving speeches for him, he would bring up that last card. "And remember Carol, the last card is the alien card. We are going to have to build space-based weapons against aliens and all of it is a lie."

Think about it- If NAZA showed video of an alien craft shooting a death ray and vaporizing the ISS tommorrow, we know that at least 90% of the sheeple would buy it. It would not require animatronic grays or anything nearly that complicated- the whole thing could be accomplished with a cheap CGI show
Actually this kind of CGI is going to be pretty expensive. I mean you'd have to physically go to millions upon millions of homes and attach a little monitor to each telescope which shows blank space where ISS should be, not to mention re-package all unsold ones. Plus you'd have to infiltrate many world goverments and somehow disrupt their information monitoring systems (the Russians are no doubt listening). On top of that bribe like 10,000 NASA workers to keep their mouths shut.
Boy, CGI is gonna have a tough day...

Coast to Coast. Are they in on this too? Could "their" truth be more fearmongering on a higher scale?
Maybe i'm way off on this, but its food for thought.
