A growing number of people no longer trust the MSM (mainstream media). Those of us with sufficient functioning brain cells, can no longer ignore their constant, shameless lying about practically everything. Lots of people still believe them though. They think: "If they all talk about the same thing, it must be important. If they all tell the same story, it must be true." They find it hard to accept that a small group of players, with a shared interest in controlling information in order to steer public perception to benefit themselves, could actually achieve that aim. They'll tell you there are far too many people employed in mass-media for a small group to censor effectively.
But we know differently. We know it doesn't work that way. There is rarely a need for outright censorship. All you have to do is hire and promote the right key people: those who already agree with your message, and those who are unscrupulous, clever and ambitious enough to play along. Those key people do likewise, and so on down the line. It's extremely rare for media people to step out of bounds. If they do, it doesn't matter how much popularity or industry clout they might seem to have. Who would have believed that personalities with the fan-base and exposure of Rosie O'Donnell, or Martin Sheen, could see their media careers destroyed overnight? If they can't afford to break ranks, who can? What I found especially disturbing, was the way their former colleagues turned on them, ripping them to pieces, with such gusto. Examples like theirs serve as a warning to the rest. There's no need to spell it out; message received. The MSM controls information by promoting those who are "on message" and ignoring or destroying those who are not.
The MSM is so obviously corrupt, that so-called "alternative media" is attracting a growing audience. The plutocratic control-freaks, who own the MSM, are aware of this trend. It would be wise to assume that they have taken steps to deal with the threat. The simplest solution (for them) would be to create an alternative mainstream media (AMSM). They could then continue to control information by promoting those who are "on message" and ignoring or destroying those who are not. Guess what?
I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but signs abound that this is the case:
Alternative carefully crafted narratives that benefit TPTB.
Alternative bullshit stories being promoted by key personalities, then taken up and repeated uncritically by all.
A pack mentality that discourages dissent.
A whole bunch of people think they've woken up, but they're just dreaming a different dream. Oh, you didn't buy that lie? How about this one? Sold! Have you noticed what happens to anyone who tries to expose a false AMSM narrative, or criticizes a member of the AMSM clique? Did you notice the treatment of Judy Wood? It was almost like she had committed some crime. Did you see what happened to Henry Makow? I never liked him. I think he's ignorant, paranoid and delusional; the AMSM should have ousted him for those things. But they didn't. He was ostracised by the clique for criticising Rense. I thought it ironic, since Makow's complaints, in this case, seemed justified. What's even more ironic is way the AMSM openly congratulates itself for doing this. In a reversal of truth worthy of the original MSM, they claim that those who challenge any member of the clique are the probable enemy agents. "We should be united," they say; "We can't afford to argue amongst ourselves." They behave as though there were no possibility of cointelpro agents within their group. What breath-taking arrogance! (If not: stupidity, and if not: a lie.)
Just as in the MSM, this sort of careless toe-crushing is rare. Most AMSM clique members know better. "If you can't say anything nice, don't say anything at all," is the rule. Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't the fate of humanity at stake here? Should suppressing legitimate criticism, to spare people's feelings, really be a top priority?
I don't mean to suggest that every member of the AMSM clique is a conscious agent of the control system. I sincerely hope not, and I don't believe it. On the other hand, enough of them are, that they can render harmless, or eliminate, any serious threat to the system. In other words: many are sincere, but misinformed, and thus considered harmless to the agenda of the real PTB. If I had to guess, I'd put David Icke in that group. I think he's sincere, and has many fine qualities, but I also think he's a manipulator's dream because, he's a bad judge of character. Surely, even he has to admit that. How many times has he been betrayed by those he trusted? The answer: more times than he suspects.
(Update, Oct. 23, 2013-
I can no longer give Icke the benefit of the doubt. Too much time has passed, during which, he has failed to correct any of the glaring errors in his work, although he must have been alerted to them. He continues to promote people who deserve to be exposed for the money-grubbing, self-promoting frauds that they are. Birds of a feather, I guess.)
By contrast, Jordan Maxwell is one of those Icke shouldn't have trusted, but did. Maxwell's "research" is a mixture of cherry-picked anomalies and out-right fabrication. He has spawned a veritable army of replicant minions. The only research they've ever done is listening to Maxwell. None of them bothered to check his information, and all of them owe Maxwell for their otherwise inexplicable fame. They're counting on you not knowing the difference between repetition and corroboration. Maxwell is the primary source for some of Icke's weakest assertions. Yet Icke is freely ridiculed, while Maxwell is pretty much untouchable. Why is that?
It seems to me that some areas of inquiry are more heavily controlled and infiltrated than others: religion/astrotheology, 2012, ufology, alternative history, etc. Heavy infiltration and control reliably indicate important secrets that must be kept. Therefore, I think we need to focus more attention on those subjects, but starting from the assumption that the dominant narratives are false.
If we really want to discover the truth of humanity's plight, we're going to have to resist the efforts of the controllers to foist their alternative lies upon us. Some things I'd suggest are:
1. We could stop being so tragically naive. Acknowledge the fact that the AMSM is being controlled in the same way as the MSM, and treat it accordingly. Admit that the field has been infiltrated. Start attending to the who, where and why.
2. We could be more suspicious of any story that's being over-sold. Everybody saying something doesn't make it true, in the AMSM any more than in the MSM. In either case it's more likely to be a diversion or a psy-op. Furthermore, oversold stories usually indicate the particular areas of heaviest infiltration.
3. We could stop discouraging debate. Sincere seekers of truth don't fear a challenge. They welcome it. The people pressuring everyone to play nicely and get along are the ones we should be wary of. We need less politics and more honesty.
