H L Mencken described it well when he said: ‘The aim of public education is not to spread enlightenment at all; it is simply to reduce as many individuals as possible to the same level, to breed a standard citizenry, to put down dissent and originality.’
==========The Perception Deception -(David Icke)
If you have not seen this video, for a half an hour, find the time. It is excellent, it is reality for what we have we have become over the past 100 years since Edward Bernays and Wilson’s Creel Commission is, to put it simply, a mirage, an illusion of ourselves with a mind that is no longer our own. How easily we have enslaved ourselves in self-delusions and accepted the propaganda of the system as truth and fact, when it is neither.
The CIA and the covert operatives of the American Empire and its vassal States have impregnated the world in corruption. It is now beyond control as is most of humanity’s ability to ever discern fact from fiction. The only possible catharsis is total collapse–which, unfortunately, is where we are headed. And far sooner than one might think…in fact, we are well into the process now.
All media, from the phonetic alphabet to the computer, are extensions of man that cause deep and lasting changes in him and transform his environment. Such an extension is an intensification, an amplification of an organ, sense or function, and whenever it takes place, the central nervous system appears to institute a self-protective numbing of the affected area, insulating and anesthetizing it from conscious awareness of what’s happening to it. It’s a process rather like that which occurs to the body under shock or stress conditions, or to the mind in line with the Freudian concept of repression. I call this peculiar form of self-hypnosis Narcissus narcosis, a syndrome whereby man remains as unaware of the psychic and social effects of his new technology as a fish of the water it swims in. As a result, precisely at the point where a new media-induced environment becomes all pervasive and transmogrifies our sensory balance, it also becomes invisible.
