MONOPOLY MEDIA GOES MAINSTREAM
In 1983, 50 corporations controlled the vast majority of all news media in the U.S. At the time, Ben Bagdikian was called "alarmist" for pointing this out in his book, The Media Monopoly. In his 4th edition, published in 1992, he wrote "in the U.S., fewer than two dozen of these extraordinary creatures own and operate 90% of the mass media" -- controlling almost all of America's newspapers, magazines, TV and radio stations, books, records, movies, videos, wire services and photo agencies. He predicted then that eventually this number would fall to about half a dozen companies. This was greeted with skepticism at the time. When the 6th edition of The Media Monopoly was published in 2000, the number had fallen to six. Since then, there have been more mergers and the scope has expanded to include new media like the Internet market. More than 1 in 5 Internet users in the U.S. now log in with AOL Time-Warner, the world's largest media corporation. Source at Media Reform at http://www.corporations.org/media/
As the Father of Modern
Psychology, Carl Gustav Jung, explained so well:
"Where love rules, there is no will to power.
And where power predominates, there love is lacking.
The one is the shadow of the other."
DO AMERICANS KNOW THAT THE ENDLESS
WAR ON TERROR IS NOT OFFICIAL?
The president is not the Commander-In-Chief of our armed services until a legal
declaration of war has been issued by Congress and the nation is officially at war.
If the president were the Commander-In-Chief at all times,
the office would have the same powers as a king
- expressly forbidden by the Constitution"

”If Tyranny and Oppression
come to this land, it will be in the guise of
fighting a foreign enemy. Of all the enemies to public liberty, war is,
perhaps, the most to be dreaded because it comprises
and develops the germ of every other...
No nation could preserve its freedom in the midst of continual warfare."
-- James Madison, Chief Architect of the Constitution and 4th U.S. President
"War against a foreign country
when the moneyed classes think they are
going to profit from it."
”Fascism involves the intense militarization of a people for war.
Fascism, in essence, is martial law and is contradictory to
and destructive of democracy.
If the full force of fascism is brought to bear in the United States,
the country will turn into a Nazi Germany.”
"America will never be destroyed from the outside.
If we falter and lose our freedoms,
it will be because we destroyed ourselves."
-- Abraham Lincoln
“There is a toxic quality to war
that affects the inner life of individuals and,
as a collective consequence, the society itself.
In the degradation and dehumanization of the individual
lies the destruction of all mankind.”
- Butler Shaffer
"Under the influence of politicians, masses of people tend to ascribe the responsibility for wars to those who wield power at any given time. In World War I it was the munitions industrialists; in World War II it was the psychopathic generals who were said to be guilty. This is passing the buck.
"The responsibility for wars falls solely upon the shoulders of these same masses of people, for they have all the necessary means to avert war in their own hands. In part by their apathy, in part by their passivity, and in part actively, these same masses of people make possible the catastrophes under which they themselves suffer more than anyone else.
"To stress this guilt on the part of the masses of people, to hold them solely responsible, means to take them seriously. On the other hand, to commiserate masses of people as victims, means to treat them as small, helpless children. The former is the attitude held by genuine freedom fighters; the latter that attitude held by power-thirsty politicians."
- Wilhelm Reich, The Mass Psychology of Fascism
"As nightfall does not come all at once,
neither does oppression. In both instances, there is a twilight.
And it is in such twilight that we all must be aware of change in the air --
however slight -- lest we become unwitting victims of the darkness.
-- William O. Douglas, 1939 - 1975
"Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the
That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked, and
denounce the peacemakers for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger.
It works the same in any country."

and Luftwaffe Commander in Chief, from Nurenberg Diary, (1947).

"The lie can be maintained only for such time as the
State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military
consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use
all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the
lie, and thus by extension, the truth becomes
the greatest enemy of the State."
- Dr. Joseph M. Goebbels, propaganda minister for Hitler
"There are some people who say that our press is much
less free than it appears
and that is as ideological as the press in many authoritarian countries.”
– NPR’s Margo Adler of “Justice Talking”
"The first rule of being a great propaganda system, and why our system is vastly superior to anything in the old soviet Union, is not that people think they are being subject to propaganda... people don't think that - they aren't looking for that - they are much easier to propagandize... and that's the genius of our media system. It's a system of ideology, of control, compared to an authoritarian system."

"The reality is that the American
people, as individuals, have lost their courage.
The government prefers it that
way, as a fearful people are easier to rule

"Terrorism is the best political weapon for nothing
drives people harder
than a fear of sudden death."
- Adolf Hitler
"In the end, more than they wanted freedom, they wanted security. They wanted a comfortable life, and they lost it all security, comfort, and freedom. When the Athenians finally wanted not to give to society but for society to give to them, when the freedom they wished for most was freedom from responsibility, then Athens ceased to be free."

“The best slaves are those who think they are free."
"None are so hopelessly enslaved, as

"If Bush retains control of the White House, we can expect a neocon fascist dictatorship or martial law emergency regime in 2005 or 2006, possibly as the result of synthetic terrorism. The neocons are in a desperate flight forward mentality which seeks to avoid the penal consequences of what they have already done with Valerie Plame, the Niger yellowcake forgeries, the Israeli mole scandal, and the Chalabi betrayal of state secrets. [not to mention 9-11 -CR] The neocon preference is for early war with Iran. War with Russia and China cannot be excluded somewhat further down the road.”
-- Webster Tarpley, author of the Unauthorized Biography of George Bush
"Our government has kept us in a perpetual state of fear-kept us in a continuous stampede of patriotic fervor-with the cry of grave national emergency. Always there has been some terrible evil at home or some monstrous foreign power that was going to gobble us up if we did not blindly rally behind it ..."
-- General Douglas MacArthur, 1957
"We have a duty to look after
each other. If we lose control of our government, then we lose our ability to
dispense justice and human kindness. Our first priority today, then, is to
defeat utterly those forces of greed and corruption that have come between us
and our self-governance."
The best way “to defeat utterly those forces of greed and corruption
that have come between us and our self-governance”

"The world is a dangerous place to live; not because of the people who are evil, but because of the people who don't do anything about it...

TELEVISION AND THE HIVE MIND
by Mack White mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org
”Experiments conducted by researcher Herbert Krugman reveal that, when a person watches television, brain activity switches from the left to the right hemisphere. [especially when the content is emotional –CR]
The left hemisphere is the seat of logical thought.
Here, information is broken down into its component parts and critically
analyzed. The right brain, however, treats incoming data uncritically,
processing information in wholes,
leading to emotional, rather than logical, responses. The shift from left to
right brain activity also causes the release of endorphins, the body's own
natural opiates--thus, it is possible to become physically addicted to watching
television, a hypothesis borne out by numerous studies which have shown that
very few people are able to kick the television habit.
”This numbing of the brain's cognitive function is compounded by another shift which occurs in the brain when we watch television. Activity in the higher brain regions (such as the neo-cortex) is diminished, while activity in the lower brain regions (such as the limbic system) increases. The latter, commonly referred to as the reptile brain, is associated with more primitive mental functions, such as the "fight or flight" response.
“The reptile brain is unable to distinguish between
and the simulated reality of television.
To the reptile brain, if it looks real, it is real.”
"Under the guise of journalistic objectivity, news programs subtly play on our emotions - chiefly fear."
"This government report would have us believe that the hive mind will be for our good--a wonderful leap in evolution. It is nothing of the kind. For one thing, if the government is behind it, you may rest assured it is not for our good. For another, common sense should tell us that blurring the line "between individuals and the entirety of humanity" means mass conformity, the death of human individuality. "
“The central purpose of journalism is to tell the truth so that people will have the information that they need to be sovereign… If one essential goal of democracy is to represent the interests of all the people, as much as that is possible in a heterogeneous nation, then more effective means of representation must be developed.” -Sociologist Herbert J. Gans
"To justify on-going war that steals resources and
requires on-going lies and hate-creation that keeps truth and love
FROM the people rather than "of, by and for the people".
"If freedom and opportunity at the heart of the Great
American Experiment in representative God Government is to survive and thrive
worldwide on our Internet-connected, "global village" planet, the law and
language of universal virtues (Light and Love) must somehow be branded as a
"product" that is, in fact, a PROCESS, for culturing virtue –

Morality Meltdown / How and Why
"With the legal bastions crumbling, the barbarians unleashed an all-out assault
on every front. The entertainment and news media, along with the radical
teachers unions and the leftists in academia, launched a nonstop bombardment
deriding traditional mores and glorifying the
lewd, crude, rude, and nude."
"Television sitcoms and dramas, along with the big-screen movies, have become toxic wastelands of profanity, pornography, sexual promiscuity, perversion, mindless violence, and nihilism.
"... and have mainstreamed social pathologies into the new "normalcy."
can be no longer any question that the
"pro-choice" militants will accept no
restriction on their "right" to kill
unborn babies right up to full-term delivery, as the
helpless infant exits the birth canal."
"In New Hampshire, a high school freshman was told that her "abortion is homicide" shirt was offensive to some students and faculty and so school officials threatened her with suspension should she not find a more "positive" way of expressing her beliefs. This same school, however, actively promoted just weeks earlier the pro-homosexual "National Day of Silence," where students and teachers expressed their pro-homosexual views by wearing rainbow ribbons during school. School officials apparently did not find this politically correct view "offensive." Shortly after the Thomas More Law Center got involved, school officials agreed that the student had a right to wear her pro-life shirt, even if they didn't like it."
Morality Meltdown by William F. Jasper / Vol. 19, No. 11, June 2, 2003
The culture war waged by America's liberal elite
has taken our society
far down the road to perdition. But it is not too late to turn back.
The battle for the soul of America has reached a pivotal point. The tattered shreds of what remains of Christian civilization are under assault as never before, yet who is willing to stand in the breach against the attacking barbarian hordes? Certainly not those who now pose as our political, moral, and spiritual leaders.
"The processes of consciousness are the very foundation of self-government. And If we can't govern ourselves individually, how in the name of divine order could we govern ourselves collectively? The universal law/language of G.O.D.~LOVE answers that question for all who have eyes to see
and a mind that works."
"The International banksters have long planned this war with Muslim nations. Not just because their oil-rich lands are needed to underwrite the West's oil-craving lifestyle. But moreso because of Muslim religious belief that regards ANY interest on loans as sacrilegious usury. So our Muslim brothers are intrinsically opposed to bankster "money-changers" who have hijacked the global economy via the Federal Reserve's ownership and control agenda through interest-manipulated currency. The "bottom line" behind on-war is thus the fact of the Arab/Muslim community's movement away from the U.S. dollar as the petro-currency standard and moving towards the gold-backed Euro... which would collapse the global-dominant U.S. economy. THIS IS WHY THE FED.-OWNING BANKSTER ELITE AND BUSHWHACKER CRONIES MADE THEIR FINAL POWER PLAY TO IGNITE THE MIDDLE EAST POWDERKEG AND ESCALATION OF TERRORISM.” -CR

"When poor Winston Smith was keeping his secret journal in George
Orwell's 1984, one of his first crimes against the all-knowing
state was to write down the subversive thought: Freedom is the
freedom to say that two plus two make four. Note that Winston
didn't define freedom as the freedom to say that two plus two
makes five, or three, or anything but the truth. The freedom
to speak a lie, or not much care whether it is a lie or not,
may be the essence of self-delusion, or of deconstruction, or
even the adversary system. But it is not true freedom, which is
dependent on truth. The truth sets us free in more ways than
one; it not only allows us to say what we think but allows the
world to correct us. Because it furnishes us a standard outside
ourselves by which we may be judged. Without it, we live on our
own little imaginary planets, spinning out of control. It is
the lies, the evasions, the falsehoods, the purely adversarial
arguments which power is prone to use that undermine freedom --
and human discourse itself." --Paul Greenberg

THE “FOUR QUADS” OF POWER POLITICS FOR SUBVERSION OF FREEDOM:
"In my view The Trilateral Commission represents a
skillful, coordinated effort to seize control and consolidate the four centers
of power political
All this is to be done in the interest of creating a more peaceful, more
productive world community. What the Trilateralists truly intend is the
creation of a worldwide economic power superior to the political governments of
the nation-states involved.

they propose to create will overwhelm existing differences.
[Creating a Belief System (BS) in
godless materialism as a secular religion that is “worth-shipped” via scarcity

"The cause and core solution to endless worldwide war

"Getting mad is going mad; emotional-devotional
subservience to tyranny’s tirades is one hell of a way
to respond to an instant-everywhere connected world
where conscientious common sense of a loving God
warrants Christic commeasurement with Christ's core edict to
love God with all your mind and all your heart and all your might
and your (Netizen) neighbor (in our global village) as thyself.
Let it be with harmony - Keep the faith in LOVE -centric salvation
and for God's sake, use your head - not devotion to emotion
that gets along by angrily revolving the problem
at the expense of a comprehensive solution.
Consider the LEGACY PROJECT as a virtue-centric alternative.”
"The unspoken truth is that either as a people we were misled, or we were lied to, about the real reason for this war. Either we made a huge - and unforgivable - mistake, an arrogant or ignorant mistake, or we are swaggering around the world like a blind giant, flailing in all directions while the rest of the world watches in horror or in ridicule."
