Controlling the Message in the Disinfo War

Activist Post

Propaganda and disinformation have always been important tools of State control. However, it has become increasingly difficult with the rise of technology to control the access points of information. The establishment knows this and has vigorously turned to disinfo to create a fog of war in the battle for perception, particularly in social media. Knowing this, it puts additional demands upon viewers and readers to corroborate everything they hear, from as many sources as possible, in order to formulate a sound opinion of events.

This video concisely urges people to ask the right questions when evaluating information. Now, more than ever before, an informed citizenry must actively participate in uncovering the truth for themselves and disseminating that truth. For the first time we have all of the tools that can lead us toward critical, independent thought. Perhaps this is the reason why establishment media and government is encouraging us to be lazier than ever and passively do as we are told, while simultaneously attempting to shut off our access to as many data points as possible.

Activist Post, your own control of the message is shady. I'm beginning to think you're some kind of shill set-up. Mick McNulty. England.

“In the technotronic society the trend would seem to be towards the aggregation of the individual support of millions of uncoordinated citizens, easily within the reach of magnetic and attractive personalities exploiting the latest communications techniques to manipulate emotions and control reason.”
― Zbigniew Brzezinski, Between Two Ages: America's Role in the Technetronic Era

“The conscious and intelligent manipulation of the organized habits and opinions of the masses is an important element in democratic society. Those who manipulate this unseen mechanism of society constitute an invisible government which is the true ruling power of our country. ...We are governed, our minds are molded, our tastes formed, our ideas suggested, largely by men we have never heard of. This is a logical result of the way in which our democratic society is organized. Vast numbers of human beings must cooperate in this manner if they are to live together as a smoothly functioning society. ...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 the 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.”
― Edward L. Bernays, Propaganda (book)

“There will be, in the next generation or so, a pharmacological method of making people love their servitude, and producing dictatorship without tears, so to speak, producing a kind of painless concentration camp for entire societies, so that people will in fact have their liberties taken away from them, but will rather enjoy it, because they will be distracted from any desire to rebel by propaganda or brainwashing, or brainwashing enhanced by pharmacological methods. And this seems to be the final revolution”
― Aldous Huxley

Today, the solitary inventor, tinkering in his shop, has been overshadowed by task forces of scientists in laboratories and testing fields. In the same fashion, the free university, historically the fountainhead of free ideas and scientific discovery, has experienced a revolution in the conduct of research. Partly because of the huge costs involved, a government contract becomes virtually a substitute for intellectual curiosity. For every old blackboard there are now hundreds of new electronic computers.

The prospect of domination of the nation's scholars by Federal employment, project allocations, and the power of money is ever present – and is gravely to be regarded.

Yet, in holding scientific research and discovery in respect, as we should, we must also be alert to the equal and opposite danger that public policy could itself become the captive of a scientific-technological elite.
- Eisenhower, Fairwell Speech

"Education should aim at destroying free will so that after pupils are thus schooled they will be incapable throughout the rest of their lives of thinking or acting otherwise than as their school masters would have wished ... The social psychologist of the future will have a number of classes of school children on whom they will try different methods of producing an unshakable conviction that snow is black. Various results will soon be arrived at: first, that influences of the home are 'obstructive' and verses set to music and repeatedly intoned are very effective ... It is for the future scientist to make these maxims precise and discover exactly how much it costs per head to make children believe that snow is black. When the technique has been perfected, every government that has been in charge of education for more than one generation will be able to control its subjects securely without the need of armies or policemen .... Diet, injections, and injunctions will combine, from a very early age, to produce the sort of character and the sort of beliefs that the authorities consider desirable, and any serious criticism of the powers that be will become psychologically impossible. Even if all are miserable, all will believe themselves happy, because the government will tell them that they are so."
- Bertrand Russell

"We have now sunk to a depth at which the restatement of the obvious is the first duty of intelligent men"
- Eric Blair (George Orwell)

“We become slaves the moment we hand the keys to the definition of reality entirely over to someone else, whether it is a business, an economic theory, a political party, the White House, Newsworld or CNN.”
― B.W. Powe, Towards A Canada Of Light

"A scientific world society cannot be stable unless there is world government."
- Bertrand Russell

"I do not pretend that birth control is the only way in which population can be kept from increasing. There are others. . . . War . . . has hitherto been disappointing in this respect, but perhaps bacteriological war may prove more effective. If a Black Death could be spread throughout the world once in every generation survivors could procreate freely without making the world too full."
- Bertrand Russell

Very fine commentary by not just well read but be minds and comprends what they have read.
Near to where I live there are two centers of Strausian thought and if those commentator have not read of this, you may also find it interesting.
Another read( one that many feel) is "We", a hard to find work in print but hopefully one can find it on net.
Again; Very fine commentarys.
Thank you.

Simple well said message, even the brain impaired should be able to grasp it. Getting them here to see it is the difficulty.

Nice video. Although to be honest to link to the Globalists NWO website of the electronic frontier foundation in the text of the article is a little odd and in that the website and the foundation are dis-info entities, appearing to be something else completely of course. Thank you.
