One could accuse me of beating this horse to death, even gratuitously so. Fair enough. But it’s worth emphasizing just how stupid the corporate state media thinks its viewers are — and, by extension, the public-school-educated American public generally — that it can ram down its audience’s slack-jawed throats the narrative that voting for unapproved parties or candidates is a violation of sacred Democracy™.
I wish media classes were part of the standard curricula. If people understood the hypnotic power of the technology, it might change things. As Marshall McLuhan famously said, "The medium is the message." The flickering refresh rate puts your brain into an alpha wave state, similar to sleep or hypnotism. Then, whatever they say/show becomes post-hypnotic suggestions. By constantly repeating the same message whenever you are in front of the babble box, the message gets buried deeper and deeper until you start to think it's your own mind telling you things. If you want out of the trap, the only thing to do is turn off the TeeVee and toss it out the door.
Often wonder if the plans have been in place for centuries if not longer, prophets & future fiction writers could be whistleblowers or simply publishing leaks.
Their hypocrisy is legion, they don’t get irony and they don’t do facts. They do get scripts carefully concocted to create mass psychosis and then they get big paychecks. We are the peons they hold in contempt while they laugh all the way to the bank.
Thanks, Ben. The terrible thing is that I believe this is all deliberate. Those who control/instruct/command the MSM presenters, not only know how dim the talking heads are but also their ‘audience.’ Hope you find the below stack of interest.
Dr Yoho has cross posted a heart breaking and lengthy stack on the long standing and deliberate dumbing down of education, (thanks to the usual suspects) starting with the ability to read – e.g. “I learned that the Cabal installed the Fed and that they didn’t want us to be good readers.”
"which is why these countries" <==== Error.
