Enlightenment has nothing to do with CorpoMedia’s mission, it’s all about control. That meshes smoothly with CorpoGov, whose primary concern regarding average Americans is what people can be manipulated into believing—which appears to be just about anything. How meaningful is smarmy blather about the safety of Americans, and about their welfare in general, in light of such realities as the lists of questions where our troops are asked if they would kill Americans—even their own friends and family—for not fully cooperating with impending martial law?

Omission is the ultimate, but lies remain the staple of CorpoMedia, whisking the masses to ever greater heights of misunderstanding. Lies got us into the hideous quagmire of Iraq...all the weapons of mass destruction hair-triggered to destroy western civilization at the whim of Satanic Saddam. Omission regarding Saddam being our “good buddy” when his evil meshed with ours, his WMD coming from us—that got us over the top. Remember Wolf Blitzer the evening of 9-11: “We’ve been attacked by Iraq!” Remember 70% of the people believing Saddam had done 9-11? Remember the slick three-week war to be financed by Iraqi oil revenues? Utter, fantastic miscalculation, or super lies—which seems more likely? And now lies keep us in Iraq, officially concealing Iraqi reality. Lies fuel the rambling of Senator McCain about us being prepared to occupy Iraq for another hundred years! Then there’s his “bomb bomb bomb Iran”, and bluster about “confronting Russia and China,” as “Independent” Sen. Joe Lieberman scurries around trying to cloak McCain’s warmonger senility.
