Related History of Mass Mind Control - The Century of Self Full Video
Public Relations is an essential part of government and corporate structure, but would it surprise you to know that the term propaganda means the same thing? Edward Berney's, was an Austrian-American psychologist who developed the modern form of mass mind control in the 1920's, termed Propaganda and Public Relations.
While the application of these subtle manipulation techniques vary, the over arching principle is always the same: to shape and mold the values and beliefs of a population to serve a hidden agenda. This is usually carried out by a government on its own people.
Today this manipulation is so common place, almost everyone has some level of recognition that our governments are 'full of it'. At the core of every propaganda or public relations campaign is reality management - the use of symbols, suggestion, inception and even trauma all serve to distort an individuals perception of reality. And once complete, the individual will have no idea that their desires and values are a product of careful mind manipulation. The advertising industry is almost totally overt with their use of subliminal techniques, but it goes much deeper than this.

Arguably the most successful propaganda campaign occurred in humanities deep past, when we forgot how to create abundance in our lives via innovation and personal generation. We forgot that wealth of real and immediate value comes from the creative acts of each one of us, who pool our resources and inventive power together for the collective good of all. As a result of forgetting about our interconnectedness, we felt like we didn't have enough, because in a way we don't, we forgot how to create the things we need, and we began hoarding the little we did have. Within this carefully sculpted reality of scarcity, an artificial replacement for personal work and innovation took root; money.

Why work hard to learn skills and develop knowledge if you have money? This is the MEME of our age, the over ridging thought form which subtly works on the consciousness of humanity. All made possible through consciousness manipulation technology; propaganda. And governments, royalty and religions have been subtly shaping the values and beliefs of their people for generations.
What can we do in the face of such a successful program of domination and control? Thankfully there is an immunization one can take that protects them from mind manipulation; the truth. Knowledge, once possessed within the mind, will make plain the most complex of illusions, will uproot the most well entrenched deceptions, will dissolve the most well crafted lie.
All propaganda campaigns have one thing in common: they all distort and deceive by providing an easy to accept version of reality, that is ultimately false in relation to the whole truth. Therefore, if we always strive to understand our reality personally, then we will shore up our minds against attempts to manipulate it. All the best propaganda only ever offers us a false version of reality, in order for it to work, we must accept this as our truth. But if we question it, if we investigate the inner workings of it and seek to validate its veracity, then we will recognize it for what it is.
And this theme of personal participation, of becoming our own expert and leader is also the same tool to stop the source of this manipulation; the Cabal. Our would-be masters, those cowardly rulers, shut up in their palaces and estates require our ignorance and complacency to stay in power. Ultimately, they only have power, because we gave it to them.

The Truth once sought after, will reduce to ruble any lie. It will make us brave where we were once afraid. It will make us confident when we were once unsure. And it will ultimately set the whole of humanity free from the errors of their own making, once we set aside our fear of questioning authority, and take up our birth right of self mastery. It all starts with being brave enough to realize that nearly everything in our world is a subtle form of mind manipulation, and once we question it and seek the truth about it, any nefarious intent can be seen for what it is. The path of healing is also the path of sovereignty and the path of abundant co-creation.

Each and every day we are subject to propaganda, yet many of us are oblivious to the fact that we are being manipulated so frequently.
In light of compelling information and evidence which supports largely predictable outcomes, propaganda can be used to confuse, obstruct, and distract individuals and society from clearly understanding the issues at hand.
As we face serious and interconnected challenges, it is important to understand the role propaganda plays in society.
Propaganda is a form of communication geared towards manipulating and influencing the mindset of individuals through a series of emotionally charged messages. It can be used to either promote certain causes or to negatively influence and persuade people to support various ideological positions.
Propaganda is powerful because everyone is susceptible to it. Robert Cialdini, Professor Emeritus of Psychology and Marketing at Arizona State University, author of the best-selling book Influence, outlines why people don’t realise they are being subject to propaganda: “In order to deal with it, we need shortcuts.
We cannot be expected to recognise and analyse all the aspects in each person, event, and situation we encounter in even one day.
We do not have the time, energy, or capacity to process the information; and instead we must often use our stereotypes, our rules of thumb to classify things according to a few key features and then to respond without thinking when one or another of these trigger feature are present.”(1)
Apart from the inability to disseminate large volumes of information, the main difficulty in distinguishing propaganda from other types of biases is in its subjectivity.
For one party the information communicated may be seen as educational, yet for the other party it may be seen as propaganda. Propaganda is about presenting facts and information selectively and impartially so that the message elicits an emotional response.
Propaganda is everywhere and is disseminated through media outlets, by politicians, by governments, educational institutions, corporations and through the entertainment industry. Here are some great quotes from Orwell, Chomsky, Pilger, Smith, and Vidal who understand the role propaganda plays in society.
Propaganda in War and Terrorism
“One of the most horrible features of war is that all the war-propaganda, all the screaming and lies and hatred, comes invariably from people who are not fighting.” George Orwell
“As societies grow decadent, the language grows decadent, too. Words are used to disguise, not to illuminate, action: You liberate a city by destroying it. Words are used to confuse, so that at election time people will solemnly vote against their own interests.” Gore Vidal
“The most effective way to destroy people is to deny and obliterate their own understanding of their history.” George Orwell
Propaganda in Business and Corporations
“All over the place, from the popular culture to the propaganda system, there is constant pressure to make people feel that they are helpless, that the only role they can have is to ratify decisions and to consume.” Noam Chomsky
“People who own the society, the merchants and manufacturers, they are the architects of government policy and they design it in their own interest of course no matter how grievous the effect is on others. The point of corporate propaganda and the educational system is to instill these beliefs and it works pretty well.” Adam Smith
“There is massive propaganda for everyone to consume. Consumption is good for profits and consumption is good for the political establishment.” Noam Chomsky
“The major western democracies are moving towards corporatism. Democracy has become a business plan, with a bottom line for every human activity, every dream, every decency, every hope. The main parliamentary parties are now devoted to the same economic policies — socialism for the rich, capitalism for the poor — and the same foreign policy of servility to endless war. This is not democracy. It is to politics what McDonalds is to food.” John Pilger
Propaganda in Journalism
“Many journalists now are no more than channelers and echoers of what George Orwell called the ‘official truth.’ They simply cipher and transmit lies. It really grieves me that so many of my fellow journalists can be so manipulated that they become really what the French describe as ‘functionaries,’ functionaries, not journalists.
“Many journalists become very defensive when you suggest to them that they are anything but impartial and objective. The problem with those words ‘impartiality’ and ‘objectivity’ is that they have lost their dictionary meaning.
“They’ve been taken over… [they] now mean the establishment point of view… Journalists don’t sit down and think, ‘I’m now going to speak for the establishment.’ Of course not. But they internalise a whole set of assumptions, and one of the most potent assumptions is that the world should be seen in terms of its usefulness to the West, not humanity.” John Pilger
How to Avoid Being Manipulated by Propaganda
“I try to encourage people to think for themselves, to question standard assumptions… Don’t take assumptions for granted. Begin by taking a sceptical attitude toward anything that is conventional wisdom. Make it justify itself. It usually can’t. Be willing to ask questions about what is taken for granted. Try to think things through for yourself.” Noam Chomsky
“Citizens of the democratic societies should undertake a course of intellectual self-defence to protect themselves from manipulation and control, and to lay the basis for meaningful democracy.” Noam Chomsky
