I agree the media is what misleads the population..
However I don't like the picture you have of a scope.. aimed at a person and an american flag? No one should be encouraged to take in violent behavior. Just saying that picture gives the wrong idea..
That is what the entertainment industry would call "the big 6", the six largest media corporations in the world. They literally control everything you've ever watched, Ever.

Turning the television off would be a good start. I still watch the damned thing but with a dvr I can skip most of the commercials which to me is 90% of the propaganda and most of what I watch is sports. Not a lot of propaganda there.
There are only two reasons to watch MSM news. Either to find out what the opposition is saying or because one actually believes the tripe they spew. Sadly, I believe the latter is more often the case.
The Plasmatics summed it up quite well: "The brainwashed don't even know they are brainwashed".
You have to get your news from somewhere
Public Enemy #1 is an uninformed and dis-empowered citizen.
The MSM has out stripped its ability to suspend our disbelief and they know it.
The gates have been sprung and all of us animals are standing around confused because the gates have always been shut. But not anymore.
Our Govt. and most Core State Actors (America, Russia, 'Europe') lost control of this train over a decade ago and have been scrambling to catch up; like chasing a steam train down the tracks trying to shovel coal in the windows to keep it rolling. Bad situation.
Things changed so fast that folks just do not realize they have changed.
We are free, run out of the gates, organize and go get some pizza.
Because the story you are telling is way to old to be relevant any longer OP.
We need a new way to story and narrate our predicament. Why are you hauling out a Best Seller from 2000?

I use ATS. Works for me. I can learn more in a hour on here than a week of watching any MSM news channel. Sure, there's drivel here too but much less than the MSM. There are enough clips pulled from MSM that I get the gist of what they are doing, which is lie about everything.
Thank the Gods for the net.
Sounds like some fringe, underground BS to me. Sorry!
The term was first used in 1989 by a team of United States analysts, including William S. Lind, to describe warfare's return to a decentralized form. In terms of generational modern warfare, the fourth generation signifies the nation states' loss of their near-monopoly on combat forces, returning to modes of conflict common in pre-modern times.
During the early 1960s, Boyd, together with Thomas Christie, a civilian mathematician, created the Energy-Maneuverability, or E-M, theory of aerial combat.
That's OK. I can understand as things are happening very fast. I'll help out.
The term has a history of use in various scientific and technological contexts, as well as a generic meaning to describe "One who brings about a result or event; one who accomplishes a purpose", but the term was adopted into 5GW discussion in order to distinguish between those fully aware of the 5GW being conducted and those whose actions cumulatively bring about a successful conclusion to the 5GW operations being waged but are merely co-opted players, pawns, or proxies unlikely to have more than a vague awareness of the existence of the 5GW campaign (if any)
