First off, hello to the community here. I came this way via disinfo.com the podcast.
I wanted to touch on a general theme that runs through most conspiracy theories - the Cover Up. The invention of the Television was the single
greatest step forward in furthering the ability of those with the desire to rewrite history as it was happening and manufacture public opinion. The
black box is so insidiously worked into the lives of most industrial nations (and growing in third worlds) that most people are comforted by the
constant bombardment of propaganda for the consumer kulture, and feel an empty longing when the box isn't on.
If there is a secret cabal of Black Brothers they were certainly responsible for shaping the TV medium into what it is today. From the two hour hate
(the evening local and world news) to the game shows awarding large sums of cash to people whose knowledge consists of inane trivia, TV is the main
driving force behind breeding an easily controlable populace. Even the internet (which still has some bastions of enlightened minds) is mostly used
by the oligarchy of power brokers manuvering to cement their position at the top of the pyramid.
Mass media is the most subtle form of mind control, but far more powerful than any subliminal messaging tried in the sixties. Everywhere you look
there is an advertisement reminding you of your duty to consume and promulgate the brands and logos that define your being. Whatever show you watch
builds up the myth of a people so self sure and smug in their suburban pre-packaged existances that they are somehow endearing. Any 'fact' is just
the launcing pad for a new ad-campaign.
Whoever controls the media gets to write the message. If Truth with a capitol T is ever to be widely known it won't be through institutionalised
forms of media. Even the internet in its current incarnation is a poor way to do anything other than preach to the choir.
Fortunately it is nearly impossible for the Light of Truth to be completely extinguished no matter how opressive the reigns of power are. Building a
community of Truth Tellers, and Questioners is the foundation from which a true media revolution will be launched.
