Are Fearmongering MSM and Politicos Making Us Zombies?

We think a lot about evil 'multi-nationals' and the NWO who are hell-bent on eliminating the "sheeple" and manipulating the rest of us with no regard for human rights, laws and the Constitution, popular opinion, criticism and outright rejection of their (theoritical) "agenda."

Popular culture, even ATS, are besieged withe the Zombie phenomenon.

Amazon's #1 best-selling "Contemporary Literature" book is Seth Grahame-Smith's "Pride and Prejudice and Zombies."

"Juno" writer Diablo Cody's new film is a zombie tale called "Breathers: A Zombie's Lament." Michael Jackson's zombie classic "Thriller" is headed for Broadway. Facebook's "Real Friends Kill Friends Who Become Zombies" has more than 25,000 members. New York magazine, in a review of the most recent Fashion Week, coined "Zombie chic."

As banks have failed, we've heard outcries from financial analysts about "zombie banks." Even our highways traffic signs are hacked to read "Daily Lane Closures Due to Zombies." (Missouri, Texas and Indiana had such incidents.)

Why the new-found popularity?

A widespread sense of anxiety (recall Carter's "malaise") pervades American society, along with or perhaps causing the rise of the zombie as a cultural phenomenon. We've grown suspicious, fearful and even resentful of seemingly immortal entities that are 'out to get us.'

Author Grahame-Smith told the Chicago Tribune last week his idea about what makes zombies especially fascinating today:

It may be a cringing irony that the current zombie craze coincides with a deadly outbreak of swine flu. But it goes beyond that.

We live in a time when we think a lot about big faceless groups of people in the world who mean to do us harm and can’t be talked to, and so it’s not surprising we would take comfort in the zombie.

"It's the dawn of the zombie zeitgeist"

But what explains this change in our culture? What happened to the activists and protesters who marched in the streets, stood in the face of "authority," to decry injustices such as the Vietnam War, discrimination, and police brutality?

Have we become "infected?" Why are the new activists, the Tea-Party participants (mockingly, and perhaps self-revealingly called 'teabaggers' by some), bloggers and conspiracy theorists openly reviled, ridiculed and questioned about motivation?

Have Americans drunk the MSM and politico Kool-Aid?

Zombie appeal, [fear of "the Illuminati" and other facelss groups, FEMA camps,] and the swine flu scare are caused by two things: the news media’s increasing use of scare tactics in trying to lure audiences, and the socialists’ continuous use of fearmongering to press for political power. In their neverending quest to wrest more power by creating what H. L. Mencken correctly characterized as an endless series of hobgoblins requiring a socialist elite’s powers to destroy, the socialists and their media satraps continually raise fears of everything conceivable:
• medical and public-health scares from Alar in apples to Gulf War Syndrome to Asian flu to swine flu
• all-out nuclear war (it never happened because both sides indeed knew it would be catastrophic and wouldn’t get them what they wanted)
• a housing “crisis” that could hit innocent homeowners and investors (as opposed to being the necessary consequences of irresponsible actions by lenders and borrowers) and bring down the entire economy
• the earth overheating and killing all life on the planet
. . . and so on and so on for decade after decade.

"Zombie Culture and the March of Socialism"

With Barack Obama, V.P. Joe Biden, Sec. of State Hillary Clinton, and Obama Chief of Staff Rahn Emanuel openly gleeful that every 'crisis is an opportnity that should not be wasted,' aren't we being manipulated into a reactionary stance, rather than the critical, thinking people we presume ourselves to be, and once were?

Indeed they are all controlled.
Even knowing the truth will not help because the Illuminati
defense is built on lies and they will continue to lie to us.

Read the real history in the Lyne books, the simple truth is that
they may be ignored and to see how every move they make
can be explained.

I've read Lyne, and he is correct on many points.

I'm not sue though that we don't ignore them at some risk.

It seems to me to listen to, but not heed, their lies.

Lyne has been discussed at and the PTP by Russ Kick in several books he's written or edited.

You can see definitely see how every one has been "Zombized"
since the end of WWII in many respects by the Lyne material.

And the big lie can't be stopped.
I see inroads to "bringing science back" on youtube and groups with
many experiments.

As for many of the other masked maneuvers of the news we will
never hear the pandemic is over with an all clear signal.
The news gives fear of something or a false hope in another or
just plain nonsense completely ignoring what has been known
to be true.

Some social scientists agree that the 'sensitization' has been going on for decades, even back to WWII. Instead of a de-sensitization, the MSM and others with an agenda have been creating a society that is always looking over its shoulder, fearful and suspicious.

"PC' culture is one result.

There are some looking to 'discredited' theories and experiments for truth, but MSM and gov't more often than not marginalize them and ridicule that line of thought.

The zombies go along.

Bloomberg and that crowd have the upper hand.
They operate at different levels of the Illuminati.

Top level has control of science, military and education.
The three most important.

Bloomberg pushes wind power because that all there is
of an non consumable power source that won't get in the
way of sun panels. Both are little help to Joe blow who has
to hear the energy wind from the masters of our world.

The real 'free energy' devices are as yet locked up so
the visible leaders give us windmills.

And "Zombie" us follow the path all laid out for us.

When that crowd's half-assed efforts have driven up the prices of electricity and consumables, some alternatives will gain favor.

Economical solar will undermine some of those efforts.

Meanwhile, we have H1N1, waterboarding, banks and nukes to distract us from the realities and our ability to shape them,

This is not the Alex Jones thread, I'll check in with this there
as well.

Remember the "Inside Job" zombies of Alex Jones.

It was like fighting zombies with zombies and Geraldo won
cause he is with the Illuminati.

ED: Left and energy post at a Jones tube:

Now the Illuminati are granting us Green Energy that consumes no materials such as coal or oil or rubbish. Isn't that great. Solar Panels that Carter blessed us with and St Bloomberg will give us Windmills. Tesla would have given us more with his bulb but that is forbidden by the Illuminati.

Yeah what is the history of the NWO and the Illuminati. I'd start with the richest people of the past century with perhaps JP Morgan and John Jacob Astor who funded the work of Tesla. Now ol' JP got 51% control over the Tesla patents. Tesla knew the Illuminati of the time for good reason because their economy would be built on his inventions yet we know little of his work. For the present situation the economy is built on suppression of these inventions by the NWO and Illuminati.

The fed and MSM distractions will not stop until someone will come forward with the truth.

Even now, they're trying to limit the influence of the Internet and bloggers to avoid being faced with undeniable truth.
