It is a myth that Einstein created the most dangerous technology of the twentieth century when he helped split the atom. The technology created by Freud is much more dangerous. Einstein's bombs can frighten and occasionally kill, but Bernays' propaganda, combined with the rigid controls of National Socialism, allows the Total State to hold hundreds of millions of people hostage in an invisible prison.

Most people live in a fantasy world of their own creation. As first described by Sigmund Freud in his study of psychoanalysis, each person fights an internal emotional battle with his childhood caretakers, siblings, perceived enemies, and society. The building blocks of this fantasy world are powerful tools for control of a civilian population, if you have a government that knows how to use them.

Edward L. Bernays, nicknamed the Father of Spin, was the creator of modern propaganda. Bernays was Sigmund Freud's nephew, and applied Freud's work to the art of mass persuasion by blending advertising techniques with an understanding of human psychology. Bernays worked for the Committee on Public Information, otherwise known as the CPI. This government agency was created by President Woodrow Wilson in 1917 for the purpose of mustering public support for World War One.

The original propaganda campaign had three rules:

Stress emotion over logic,
Demonize the enemy, and
Promise a war that will make the world safe for democracy. The U.S. invasion of Afghanistan has followed Bernays' playbook to the letter. We waved our flags, while the evil wife-enslaving Taliban were destroyed by the freedom loving Northern Alliance. The CPI is clearly still hard at work today. It has been given new life in the War on Terror (emotion over logic), which is intended to destroy the Evil Axis (demonize the enemy), in order to create a safe world for our children (promise democracy). One can only guess at the breadth and scope of the overall propaganda effort, but it would be no stretch to assume that it employs thousands, and costs billions.

sounds like they used a unifying psychological attack upon the people to induce the responses they wanted. by playing to the level of emotion they were able to tap the collective conscious of the population and pervert the reason beyond any logic. they turned the real world into a world where it became a product that the people had to save or be lead to assume guilt.

it says of socialism with imperialism. use the guise of protecting the people while at the same time going around saying liberating yet they just station a corporation and/or military to spread the democracy which morphs into the socialism through the tool of capitalism.

propaganda - the proper delagating of an agenda to be sold like an objective which the sellers are not subjective.

It really is all the propaganda that makes it hard to see the truth. Nothing is sacred to them they will warp anything and everything to get their way.

warp anything and everything

Very important point

Make sure you understand this to the fullest, every bit of information you recieve even if it seemingly speaks against them, can be used to control you.

how often did you see terror warnings going up before the last presidential election?

honestly seemed like every week the colors were changing.

since bush got elected how many times have you seen it happen, to my knowledge just from staying up on current evernts and reading the news and what not, its been like 3 or 4.

Any coinsodence?

When people get scared they want a strong leader, bush pushed that role, and push the more intelectual kerry as weak as a leader, and weak as a decision maker.

Too bad it takes a lot longer than it should for most people to realized these sort of things. Althought it is a bit of history we are getting to see every week, continually lower and lower presidential approval ratings. 33% was the last i saw. Funny, and very sad, at the same time.

^^^It's wild to realize how easily these propaganda tactics shape society. Yes, it is very sad.

any piece of information is propaganda in itself. just look at the public relations that spin the situation to deflect attack or defend the person or position. every body is suspect in the field of propergating an agenda usually in the field of social sciences as such. propaganda works through the semantics of the word and it's usage by real meaning and implied meaning. one says bad two people see different things. what's being propagated the cool or the weak.

using the reversal to arm themselves works so far as the words hold weight. it's like leave it at the door - which means it comes down to the truth versus attitude. propaganda relies on attitude not the truth. the truth needs no sellsman to hawk its self. it is and always will be.
