That’s why propaganda is important. That’s why 24/7 “information” is important. That’s why 24/7 “entertainment” is important.
In this age of burgeoning electronic communication, people use their brains more as sponges and less as apparatuses designed to critically analyze, to just plain think. Sadly, the masses don’t think, they react, and that’s what our masters wish.
Propaganda isn’t new. It’s been with us for as long as there have been power-seeking people who wish to lord it over their fellow citizens. What is interesting is that, upon the invention of the printing press, our masters discovered that, to propagandize, it was necessary for people to read. Illiteracy was actually an obstruction to manipulation, and without the ability to broadcast information through thin air, our masters encouraged all to read.
Now we’ve reached a point where our masters no longer wish us to read, to dwell upon and analyze information; instead they wish us to soak in the images they project through TV and movies and music with the goal of inducing visceral reaction—brute, insentient, visceral reaction. They know beyond any doubt that if they get a critical mass of people to stampede and the rest will follow.
That’s why a democracy is garbage. Despite that we’ve all been brainwashed into believing that democracy is such a great thing, no less than Plato, an unabashed elitist in his time, explained that democracy is only one step above the worst form of government know to humankind—tyranny, to which democracy inevitably devolves.
Whoever visits this site and the related sites under the umbrella of thinkorbeeaten.com probably understands there is a movement to bring about a New World Order. That movement has been happening for centuries, but it has gained far more momentum throughout the last century and is now on our doorsteps like it or not.
The final push for totalitarianism arguably began in this country with the events of Sept. 11 2001. That date, not Jan. 1, 2001, ushered in the final millennium during which our masters will gain complete control over the populations of the world.
To attain that goal it will be necessary for our masters to make each and every one of us reach our breaking points. They will create the problems, the catastrophes, the tragedies, the deprivations. They will give us the chaos they are so fond of as a means of making us accept the supposed solutions and remedies they have also prepared, which, on face, will appear satisfactory to us, but which, ultimately, will bring about our enslavement.
Those who know me know I cleave to a particular verse written by Robinson Jeffers in his 1944 poem “Be Angry at the Sun.” To me, it capably embodies the human condition in nine simple words: “The cold passion for truth hunts in no pack.”
It is doubtful that good people can prevent barbarous acts. I’d like to think they can, but six decades on this planet and an unadorned understanding of history tells me differently. However, each of us can resist joining the mob, choosing rather to live with a demonstrated compassion and intelligence that will keep us from becoming part of the problem.
It is also doubtful that all serial shootings are organic, and that is taking into consideration those that have occurred since Whitman’s rampage in Austin, Texas, in 1966. On one level, the pathology of the shooters and shootings doesn’t matter because the victims are just as dead. On another level, it would be beneficial to study the individuals and circumstances with the hope it would result in timely intervention and future prevention. Strangely, the public never is provided access to this information, which surely exists, and the fact that it does exist but is never made widely accessible suggests that more than one perpetrator was a Manchurian Candidate.
In my mind, the Newtown massacre portends perhaps something much different than you might divine from the event. To me, this event signals that our masters will be busy casting their beloved chaos upon us, but not before they succeed in banning firearms. Bad and crazy people don’t sweat gun control because they aren’t about abiding by the law. Total gun control only totally deprives good people—easily more than 99% of those who legally own firearms—from either defending their families and property or placing a good deal of doubt in the minds of bad people who are more than willing to execute home invasions if only they could be confident they’d meet no resistance.
We will experience choreographed events in the near future that will stampede people into fear and frenzy. It might very well reach the much-anticipated “wild in the streets” level we hope we’d never experience. Then we will scream for martial law. And we will get it. But it won’t be our troops that will be called upon to keep the peace, and it could turn out that their methods of keeping the peace might not be a whole lot different than the methods employed by land pirates who go off plundering to meet their needs.
Dark times are upon us. Don’t think that it can’t happen here because our masters have hinted throughout the past few decades that it will happen here. And those misanthropes would never lie to us about things so dear to their icy hearts.
One last word: I think it pathetically ironic that our President can squeeze out a tear as he laments the horror of innocents cut down, and while that is an unfathomable tragedy, this nation is about to embark on yet another Middle East intrigue that will certainly cut down civilians and among them how many children?
But, hey, they’re subhuman foreigners. Who fucking cares?
