The Narrative Is As Much About What Is Not Said As What Is
This post is interconnected to those dealing with most of the posts under our ‘Social Engineering’ page. I often tell people that, if you will bother to read what they write and have the courtesy to take them at their word, the people who really run the world will tell you what they want to do and how they intend to do it. I understand that much of the material involved is commonly associated with conspiracy theory. I also understand that this is by design; it serves the purposes of those who wish to remain in the shadows. Still, I am not making any claims to know who these people are, or exactly what they want or how they intend to do it. All I am doing here is presenting some of what they and others have said about their existence. What strikes me as most compelling about the quotes that follow is how far back they go; how internationally connected and consistent they are; and how – if we just look – we can and do find examples of what these people said they planned to do actually being put into policy and practice. So, with all this in mind, I present a little of what those we seek global control have said about the importance of using the media to keep the people ignorant.
This post is a continuation of my last post, AGENDAS: The ‘New World Order’, Control Of The Media Is Essential To The Establishment Of Global Government. Once control of the media is established, government officials and ‘elites’ who work behind the scene, as well as the education system, work in conjunction with the media to form, shape and direct public opinion.
A really efficient totalitarian state would be one in which the all-powerful executive of political bosses and their army of managers control a population of slaves who do not have to be coerced, because they love their servitude. To make them love it is the task assigned, in present-day totalitarian states, to ministries of propaganda, newspaper editors and schoolteachers….
—Aldous Huxley, of “Brave New World” fame
This is done as much by what is not said and the stories that are not covered as by what is:
The greatest triumphs of propaganda have been accomplished, not by doing something, but by refraining from doing. Great is truth, but still greater, from a practical point of view, is silence about truth. By simply not mentioning certain subjects… totalitarian propagandists have influenced opinion much more effectively than they could have by the most eloquent denunciations.
—Aldous Huxley, of “Brave New World” fame
Not every item of news should be published. Rather must those who control news policies endeavor to make every item of news serve a certain purpose.
–Joseph Goebbels, NAZI propaganda minister
“We are going to impose our agenda on the coverage by dealing with issues and subjects that we choose to deal with.”
–Richard M. Cohen, Senior Producer of CBS political news.
Now, to be fair, many of the people who censor the news they report do so because they believe it is in the best interest of society. But do not be fooled. They believe this because they hold such a low opinion of the public. After working to make and keep the people ignorant and incapable of understanding complicated issues, these people then tell each other they must keep certain truths from the people because they are too ignorant to understand them. This is an attitude born of arrogance and a sense of superiority. It is the essence of elitism. It is what is being said by these people, though their arrogance prevents them from knowing or understanding it is what they are saying:
The public must be put in its place, so that it may exercise its own powers, but no less and perhaps even more, so that each of us may live free of the trampling and the roar of a bewildered herd.
–Walter Lippmann, famed American journalist
“Our job is to give people not what they want, but what we decide they ought to have.”
–Richard Salent, former president, CBS News
“We live in a dirty and dangerous world. There are some things the general public does not need to know and shouldn’t. I believe democracy flourishes when the government can take legitimate steps to keep its secrets, and when the press can decide whether to print what it knows.”
–Katherine Graham, Washington Post publisher and CFR member.
And here is a real world example of how this works. In the George Zimmerman/Trayvon Martin case, the media told us Zimmerman was white, and that he attacked Martin. We were also led to believe that Zimmerman was a racist and that he had no physical injuries after the incident to support his story. In court, the facts were established: Zimmerman is a Hispanic; he is not a racist; he was injured and Martin was the one who attacked first. But, to this day, the majority of America believes that Martin was murdered when – in Truth – a jury ruled that Martin was the attacker and was killed in self-defense. This is part of the hammer of racism that the media has worked so hard to create: a hammer they then use to protect Obama and to silence any criticism of his policies. However, while the media is pushing the “America is Racist” narrative, supported by Progressive distortion and revision of history in our schools and media, they ignore the clear evidence of growing black-on-white racism in America:
PC Water Torture: The Racial Narrative, The Media Denies Racial Aspect To Lane Shooting While Still Promoting Lies About Zimmerman Case
‘I Don’t Know What to Think’ About White House’s Silence on Chris Lane Killing, Says Oklahoma Governor
These are just three examples; there are dozens on the internet. But you won’t find nearly as much coverage of these stories in what we call the “main stream media.” If you want to learn about the growing evidence of black-on-white racism, you need to go to the blogosphere, where real journalism is now being done. Still, even in the blogosphere, where more truth is presented than on the established media, you must still be careful to evaluate what you read. The internet also opens the door to as much disinformation as information. But the point is this: most Americans do not know of these stories because the major news media and government will not talk to you about them. And they stay silent because, if they were to be honest, they would destroy the narrative they have created over the past several decades. And if they lose their narrative, they lose the hammer of racism. And if they lose the hammer of racism, they open Obama and the rest of their agenda to legitimate criticism. And if Obama and their agenda is subjected to legitimate criticism, it is likely the American people will reject it and then they lose – just like they did after Woodrow Wilson and his Progressive agenda was rejected by America.
This silence is how they deflect from scandals such as Benghazi, the IRS, NSA, Domestic Spying (has the media told you FDR would have been impeached had it been discovered he was spying on Americans to find NAZI spies in 1940?). Has the media told you that helping the Syrian rebels is the Constitutional definition of treason? Learn to look for examples of the media not reporting things. You will find many examples of the media trying to control public opinion by not talking about issues that are important to current events.
