So just in case it wasn't clear already, now I'll tie the subject of nationalistic propaganda (or the propaganda that promotes patriotism) into this subject of so-called "5th generation warfare" (a term I don't find particularly useful, but whatever, I'll run with it).

Winning the Battle for Your Mind

YOU are under attack! And your chief enemy, Satan, is using a very dangerous weapon against you. What is it? Propaganda! A weapon specially designed to attack, not your body, but your mind.

The apostle Paul was alert to the danger that satanic propaganda posed, but not all his fellow Christians were. Some in Corinth, for example, had apparently become overconfident​—thinking that they were so strong in the truth that they could never fall. (1 Cor. 10:12) That is why Paul gave this warning: “I am afraid that somehow, as the serpent seduced Eve by its cunning, your minds might be corrupted away from the sincerity and the chastity that are due the Christ.”​—2 Cor. 11:3.

Paul’s deep concern shows that there is no room for complacency. If you are going to win the battle for your mind, you must recognize the danger that propaganda poses and protect yourself from it.

PROPAGANDA​—HOW DANGEROUS IS IT?

What is propaganda? In this context, it is the use of biased or misleading information to manipulate the way people think and act. Some equate propaganda with “lies, distortion, deceit, manipulation, mind control, [and] psychological warfare” and associate it with “unethical, harmful, and unfair tactics.”​—Propaganda and Persuasion.

How dangerous is propaganda? It is insidious​—like an invisible, odorless, poisonous gas—​and it seeps into our consciousness. Because we may not see propaganda for what it is, behavior specialist Vance Packard observed: “Many of us are being influenced and manipulated​—far more than we realize.” Under its influence, says one scholar, men and women have been “quite easily led into the most preposterously dangerous behaviour”​—such as ‘genocide, war, racist hysteria, religious intolerance and many other forms of irrational behaviour.’​—Easily Led—​A History of Propaganda.

Now if mere men can fool us with their propaganda, what might Satan be able to do? He has studied human behavior since man was created. “The whole world” now lies in his power. He can use any part of it to disseminate his lies. (1 John 5:19; John 8:44) So effective has Satan been in ‘blinding people’s minds’ that he now ‘misleads the entire inhabited earth.’ (2 Cor. 4:4; Rev. 12:9) How can you resist his propaganda?

BUILD UP YOUR DEFENSES

Jesus gave this simple rule for combating propaganda: “Know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” (John 8:31, 32) But since truth is often the first casualty of war, you​—like any other soldier in the heat of battle—​need a source of trustworthy, reliable information to prevent the enemy from playing tricks with your mind. Jehovah has provided this. In the pages of the Bible, you can find all you need to combat Satan’s propaganda.​—2 Tim. 3:16, 17.

Of course, the great propagandist, Satan, knows this. So he uses his system of things to discourage Bible reading and study. Do not fall for his devious schemes! (Eph. 6:11, ftn.) Become “thoroughly able to comprehend” the full scope of the truth. (Eph. 3:18) That will take real effort on your part. But remember this basic fact expressed by author Noam Chomsky: “Nobody is going to pour truth into your brain. It’s something you have to find out for yourself.” So “find out for yourself” by being diligent in “carefully examining the Scriptures daily.”​—Acts 17:11.

Keep in mind that Satan does not want you to think clearly or reason things out well. Why? Because propaganda “is likely to be most effective,” says one source, “if people . . . are discouraged from thinking critically.” (Media and Society in the Twentieth Century) So never be content passively or blindly to accept what you hear. (Prov. 14:15) Use your God-given thinking abilities and power of reason to make the truth your own.​—Prov. 2:10-15; Rom. 12:1, 2.

BEWARE OF ATTEMPTS TO DIVIDE AND CONQUER

...

Is the Devil Real? (playlist)

Prejudice and Discrimination—Getting to the Roots (Awake!—2009)

...

A good start is to acknowledge that none of us are above developing prejudices. The book Understanding Prejudice and Discrimination says: “Perhaps the most important conclusions to emerge from prejudice research are these: (1) no one capable of human thought and speech is immune from harboring prejudice, (2) it often takes deliberate effort and awareness to reduce prejudice, and (3) with sufficient motivation, it can be done.”

...

Getting to the Roots

Prejudice causes people to distort, misinterpret, or even ignore facts that conflict with their predetermined opinions. Prejudice may have its beginnings in seemingly innocent, but misguided, family values, or it may be sown by those who deliberately promote warped views of other races or cultures. Prejudice can also be fostered by nationalism and false religious teachings. And it can be a product of inordinate pride. As you reflect on the following points and on pertinent principles taken from the Bible, why not examine your own attitudes and see if changes are in order?

...

Nationalism. One dictionary defines nationalism as “a sense of national consciousness exalting one nation above all others and placing primary emphasis on promotion of its culture and interests as opposed to those of other nations.” Ivo Duchacek, a professor of political science, observed in his book Conflict and Cooperation Among Nations: “Nationalism divides humanity into mutually intolerant units. As a result people think as Americans, Russians, Chinese, Egyptians, or Peruvians first, and as human beings second​—if at all.” A former UN secretary-general wrote: “So many of the problems that we face today are due to, or the result of, false attitudes​—some of them have been adopted almost unconsciously. Among these is the concept of narrow nationalism​—‘my country, right or wrong.’”

What does the Bible say? “God loved the world [all mankind] so much that he gave his only-begotten Son, in order that everyone exercising faith in him might not be destroyed but have everlasting life.” (John 3:16) “God is not partial, but in every nation the man that fears him and works righteousness is acceptable to him.” (Acts 10:34, 35) Ask yourself, ‘If God’s love is impartial​—embracing people of all nations, including me—​should I not strive to imitate him, especially if I profess to reverence him?’

...

Pardon the redundancy of 2 of those quotations under "nationalism" that I already used before, I just didn't want to leave that out from the comparison with what the Bible has to say about it.

English is not my first language, anytime I don't understand something, before I bother others with my ignorance I make a google search, if nothing comes up I'd Ask...


English is my first language, and I do the same all the time, as I did in the opening post with my quote of Wikipedia.

Deep fake uses artificial intelligence, which is listed in that definition of 5th.

The subject of how religion ties into nationalistic and war propaganda that I skipped in my first comment concerning how nationalism fits into this so-called "5th generation warfare":

What Obstructs Universal Brotherhood? (Awake!—1981)

IN 1469 C.E. a man named Niccolò Machiavelli was born in Florence, Italy. He wrote a book on politics entitled “The Prince,” using as a model Cesare Borgia, son of Pope Alexander VI. Borgia, according to one historian, was “an artist in ‘power politics,’ using without scruple and remorse such measure of force or fraud as may enable him to extend and secure his conquests.”

The Encyclopædia Britannica says that Machiavelli “founded the science of politics for the modern world.” “Machiavellianism” is now a word meaning the political principle “that any means however lawless or unscrupulous” may be used by a ruler to maintain his power.

Such politics has plagued this 20th century. Wars, coups, corruption, horrible violence and terrorism are all manifestations of it. Politics divides the East from the West. It divides nations, cities (such as Berlin) and even families. Politics is one of the most divisive influences of mankind.

Closely related to such politics and often exploited by political leaders is the spirit of . . .

Nationalism

On this subject an amusing story is told about an army chaplain in Scotland who, at a new military camp, asked for volunteers to convert an old barn into a chapel. In the absence of the chaplain the volunteers painted in large letters above the altar: “Scotland forever and ever.” The surprised chaplain asked them to make the sign a bit more religious. They did. The inscription then read: “Scotland forever and ever. AMEN.”

Scotsmen are known for being very proud of their country. But they are not alone in this. For example, English children, especially in the days when the British Empire was dominant in the world, were fed nationalistic fervor from earliest childhood. They were taught to believe that ‘Britannia Rules the Waves,’ and that the English are a superior nation, blessed by God.

In every nation similar feelings are promoted by politicians who know that a strong nationalistic spirit serves their purposes well. But their purpose may not be in the best interest of people. In an article entitled “Nationalism Is Alien to True Patriotism,” columnist Sydney J. Harris observed: “Nationalism means ‘going along’ with a Hitler or a Stalin or any other tyrant who waves the flag, mouths obscene devotion to the Fatherland, and meanwhile tramples the rights of people.”

Too, as the story of the chapel in Scotland shows, nationalism and religion often go together. Wrote Dr. Robert L. Kahn, a rabbi: “Religion and Nationalism always tend to go hand in hand. In times of war, particularly, . . . ‘For God and Country’ becomes a sort of battle cry. This has always been so. [In World War II] one of the popular songs was the war-whoop of a chaplain, ‘Praise the Lord and Pass the Ammunition.”’

Alex Jones is not doing what he's doing to promote himself. He is truly passionate about liberty for all, worldwide. The reason why all people on Earth need to love and honor their own nation is that all of us need local control of our lives to keep tyrants at bay.

If you don't agree with that, no amount of arguing about it will be constructive.

Blackrock and Vanguard use AI as well. With all the data collected from Facebook and others it appears quite profitable for them. Would the corporate push for vax mandates still of happened if organizations like these where not on board?

More and more I keep hearing about AI.

It's starting to drive me crazy


Yes, AI is real handy to do the tedious work of complicated mathematics. But it should only be used as a tool in the total control of an organic, living, breathing, human.

AI systems are based around the functions of a neuron. A part of all sentient species. Not my call, just physics the way it is, soz.

Chemical or digital neuron is a better approach to making some sense to it all.

Chemical if it's organic is one thing; digital is non-organic—because it's computer-made.

Artificial intelligence is just what it says. It's artificial, as in fake.

It fits right in with fake news, fake smiles, fake concern, fake issues, and all manner of fakery.

There are still some mysteries out there of what it means to be human. As for processing information, it was about 20 years ago the post office developed an AI system to read post codes in sorting the mail. Results where better than the average person, not as good as the few exceptional people in that task.

As for where all this tech is these days?

What it means to be human is to have a soul.

I agree that there are some tasks that AI can do better than a human, because humans have emotions.

But we must be more than careful about how we use AI.

When in doubt, leave it out. It's dangerous to replace humans.

I think the manifested reality we all get worked up over, is not what it appears to be. If we'd see the whole picture, we wouldn't concern our selfs that much with the manifestation itself, but rather the projector...

Was all your research directed outwards, or did you search inside too?

I do in the sense of figuring out what I'm capable of doing about the evil in the world.

And I sort of search inside to try to figure out via. empathy what makes people such as Bill Gates and Klaus Schwab tick so I can use the insight to the advantage of we the people somehow.

Agreed that our tribalistic tendencies, are used against us.

Never expected to see anyone mention it here though ! LoL !!

Even though we have entered a world where all of the big decisions are made by Globalists™, it is my suspicion that they will manage us through local Aristocrats™, mostly Politicians™, in local Seigneuries™.

When you look at how they operate : in all of their big fancy UN™ meetings, Delegates™ always have the Flag™ of their Country™, right beside their name.

Look at their games : Olympics™ - where we are always cheering for Athletes™, based on the Flag™ on their Uniforms™, and beside their name, everytime their name is posted somewhere.

And we used to think that National-Uniforms™ are to make the pour manipulated Patriot swell with emotion.
But now : it's pure manipulation.

In Pro-Tennis™, as in many other World™-level Sports™ : it's either Nation™ vs Nation™, or the single Athletes™ name, with a small rectangle of a flag right there.

Except for the Russian™ Tennis™ players : they get a white rectangle ... LoL !!

Yeah man : one could make an entire thread about how our tribalism is used against us.

A term invented by the reactionary conspiracy in order to to announce “hidden in plain view” that we are in the 5th phase of their main plan, like can be seen in 2nd thread of my series, where I’m trying to explain how this conspiracy works.
