Another method of manipulation is the old Hegelian Dialectic – control/create both the proper thesis and antithesis to get the desired synthesis result. In the corporate sphere there is Coke/Pepsi, McDonalds/Burger King etc. creating the false dichotomies, the illusions of choice. In the political sphere thebloodlines/secret societiesput members on both sides to control the spectrum. In the media it is no different. Both parties have long used the media to build the perception of opposing positions on key issues, meanwhile building consensus on other non-debated issues critical to social change. This is verified in the Congressional Record for 1917, when Congressman Callawayx reported that:
"In March, 1915, the J.P. Morgan interests, the steel, shipbuilding, and powder interest, and their subsidiary organizations, got together 12 men high up in the newspaper world and employed them to select the most influential newspapers in the United States and sufficient number of them to control generally the policy of the daily press ...They found it was only necessary to purchase the control of 25 of the greatest papers. An agreement was reached; the policy of the papers was bought, to be paid for by the month; an editor was furnished for each paper to properly supervise and edit information regarding the questions of preparedness, militarism, financial policies, and other things of national and internationalnature considered vital to the interests of the purchasers.” -U.S.Congressman Oscar Callawayx, 1917
"J. P. Morgan and his associates financed the Republican Party, the Democratic Party, conservative groups, liberal organizations, communist groups and anti-communist organizations."-Dr. Stanley Monteith, “Brotherhood of Darkness”
“The argument that the two parties should represent opposed ideals and policies, one, perhaps, of the Right and the other of the Left, is a foolish idea acceptable only to the doctrinaire and academic thinkers. Instead, the two parties should be almost identical, so that the American people can ‘throw the rascals out’ at any election without leading to any profound or extreme shifts in policy.” -Carroll Quigley, “Tragedy and Hope”
By creating false dichotomies and maintaining the illusion of opposites, it is easy to herd human thought, to dampen intuition and lateral thinking. For instance, they say the far left is communism, and the far right is fascism, both meaning dictatorial government control. Then through this false thesis/antithesis they promote the synthesis: socialist democracy, a perceived middle ground, which in reality is just another system of dictatorial government control. Where isanarchy on such a scale? Where is a constitutional republic, asAmerica is supposed to be, on that scale? There is no place for non-establishment ideas when the establishment creates false dichotomies that the public perceive as polar opposites. They suppress dissent through omission and promote both sides of the coin they own.
“Every day on television stations all over the world, journalists and correspondents give their viewers the official version of the event they are reporting. ‘White House sources say this..., the Prime Minister says that..., the FBI say the other...’ In all my time in journalism I cannot recall a single conversation in a newsroom that didn’t reflect the official version of life and the world. Most journalists are not manipulating, they are simply stunningly uninformed and often incredibly arrogant. They believe that if anything of magnitude was going on they would know about it because they are ‘journalists’. In truth they are the last to know.” -David Icke, “The Biggest Secret” (271)
“While the media obviously cannot dictate how we are to think, they certainly set the agenda on what we are to think about. Who has time for tedious stories of government conspiracies and financial manipulations when the newspapers and airwaves are filled with crime, accidents, and celebrities? Who bothers to notice when a prime-time TV network ‘news break’ contains nothing but sports scores?” -Jim Marrs, “Alien Agenda” (xii)
Nephew of Sigmund Freud, known as the Western Goebells, the master-mind of modern American Propaganda, Edward Bernays was 104 when he died in 1995. In his century behind the scenes, Edward Bernays worked with many corporations and the government to advertise and propagandize the American public into different group-think patterns. Among others he was top advisor to William Paley, the founder of CBS. He wrote in his 1928 book “Propaganda”:
“The conscious and intelligent manipulation of organized habits and opinions of the masses is an important element in a democratic society. Those who manipulate this unseen mechanismof society constitute an invisible government which is the true ruling power in our country … We are governed, our mind’s are molded, our tastes formed, our ideas suggested largely by men we have never heard of … we are dominated by a relatively small number of persons who understand the mental processes and social patterns of the masses. It is they who pull the wires which control the public mind and who harness social forces and contrive new ways to bind and guide the world …It remains a fact in almost every act of our daily lives, whether in the sphere of politics or business, in our social conduct or our ethical thinking, we are dominated by this relatively small number of persons… As civilization has become more complex, and as the need for invisible government has been increasingly demonstrated, the technical means have been invented and developed by which opinion may be regimented.”
“I know the secret of making the average American believe anything I want him to. Just let me control television. Americans are wired into their television sets. Over the last 30 years, they have come to look at their television sets and the images on the screen as reality. You put something on television and it becomes reality. If the world outside the television set contradicts the images, people start changing the world to make it more like the images and sounds of their television. Because its influence is so great, so pervasive, it has become part of our lives. You lose your sense of what is being done to you, but your mind is being shaped and molded.” -Hal Becker, Futures Group think-tank veteran
“These individuals, they do go back a long way and they have understood completely your psyche, they’ve had generations, centuries to study it. Their type of sorcery involves different kinds of techniques but it’s still the same effect: Tele-Hypnosis, Metacontrast, Hemisync, Synaesthesia, Embedding, new names, new terms for a very old, well-known practice to get you into group-think, into subservience, to get you to embody dialectical divisions of which there is no end in our society, to fashion your allegiances for you, to implant associations that your mind might not normally associate, to purvey escapism, rampant escapism and projection of fantasy into reality, to inflate false personas so you don’t have to be you, you can live it out through the person on the screen, and the excessive eroticization especially of the female.” -Michael Tsarion, “The Subversive Use of Sacred Symbolism in the Media” Lecture at Conspiracy Con 2003
The word “media” comes from Media, an ancient place in the middle-east near Libya. The Medes were an ancient cult involved in the same activities practiced today by the modern media:
“In Media were the sorcerers and astrologers, not necessarily negative people but a tribe, a very adept cult from the ancient world who specialized in the use of talismans, amulets, mantras and sorcery. And the kings of the world knew that if battle hadn’t worked, or if legal means hadn’t worked to get rid of an enemy, or you didn’t want it known that you were getting rid of your enemy, you simply called on the Medes. And you bring the representative of the Media into your court and he will take care of the problem because he is going to put the spell on your enemy, the hex, because they know how to do it. And that’s where we get the word Mediterranean, Mediation Meditation, and Medication, the Medics. Study this alone and a whole interesting subject will open itself up, because we still have the sorcerers and the voodoo and the witch doctory, we still have it today only now it’s the Techno Shamanism, it’s the Silicon Sorcerers, it’s the Ivory Tower Witchdoctors and they’re still very busy at what they’re doing up at Madison Avenue and behind the other great corporate giants who are only too happy to tell you what to think.”-Michael Tsarion, “The Subversive Use of Sacred Symbolism in the Media” Lecture at Conspiracy Con 2003
These Median sorcerers and other wizards of old often carried magical wands as well, wooden staffs from which to cast their spells. These were always made of just one certain kind of wood: holly. Hollywood.
“Merlin and the old magicians of Celtic Englandalways used their magic wands and these magic wands were always made out of holly wood. And that's why today we still have Holly-wood, working its ‘magic’ on us — showing us in movies how to view things, what we should think, or just offering us a big box office diversion.” –Jordan Maxwell, “Matrix of Power”
“So we still find that those magi in the movie business are putting their ‘spells’ on us. The makers of cinema know all about the libido, sexuality, desires and drives of the human beings that they are trying to pacify and control. The fact that ‘programs’ are called ‘programs’ is fascinating in itself. Programs are what one puts in a computer. They see the human mind as a computer and have been putting in their programs every day for decades.” -Michael Tsarion, “Astrotheology and Sidereal Mythology”
