Thought-Control on The
In order for the government to hide so many scientific and technological
discoveries through its secrecy, there had to be a way to change the way
people thought and what they believed. The formation of what one believes
is usually limited by one's epistemology—what one's "first laws" are, what
one's theory of knowledge or truth is. Is "seeing believing", or is "seeing

epistemology, which are the Platonic and the Aristotelian. We each usually
choose one or the other, depending on what we are willing to accept as "the
truth" or accept as "real".
The disconnection of science from the Aristotelian epistemology, and the
movement of scientific thought toward the Platonist epistemology, was
accelerated particularly after 1919, when Relativism was projected into the
vogue. Beginning about 1910, the mega-corporate owners of the mass
media had begun to control science and other educational curricula,2
particularly that of the medical schools, through the use of so-called
"philanthropic grants", which were actually designed to benefit the
corporations which had set up the foundations through which the grants
were awarded. These Rockefeller grants set the stage for the controllers.
The foundations eventually appointed compliant faculty members as
officers, so that the foundations, corporations, and the
