“It would be difficult to overestimate the extent to which liberty and democracy in the United States are currently endangered …” Albert E. Kahn, Treason in Congress, April 1948
“… mankind is threatened with wars, compared with which the past ones look like poor attempts and they will come without a doubt if the hands of those preparing them in public, are not smashed.” Bertolt Brecht , 1952
A strange kind of war
A strange kind of war is presently being waged upon us, pattering along on doves feet. In Germany it was on March 13th, exactly one year ago, that a bombardment of measures began to gradually strangle our liberties. Businesses were shut down. Almost all civil activities, apart from wage labor were suffocated. In the name of health we were ushered into wearing face masks while exercising our daily duties. Eventually meetings with our fellow citizens and even with relatives were narrowed down. Every movement of the individual was increasingly controlled. All were ‘gently’ forced into having their health tested. Hastily designed vaccines were imposed on every citizen fragile or strong. Lothar Whieler, director of the RKI (German Centre for Disease Control) demanded categorically: “These rules must never be questioned”. Refuseniks quickly saw themselves stigmatised as conspiracy super spreaders. Political representatives acted like feudal lords on executive orders.
In other parts of the world and at other times such phenomena would be qualified “dictatorship” or “fascist intrusion”, but presently such critical attributes are tabooed. Government friendly media, the entire political class and the scientific community as well are brainwashing us in the name of Public Health. In the meantime NATO is getting ready for another war against the eternal Russian bogey man and its Chinese partner.
And a docile public
In order to explain the compliance of a vast part of the population confronted with such unheard-of deprivation of civil rights and pushing ever closer towards a global war, we must look back and far. With the financial melt down ahead certain “elites” react in panic mode. For the larger public, social and economic penalties are accompanied by police operations for disobedience.
Due to an oiled brainwashing machine hammering day in day out on the same melody people’s minds get tired and they abide by its monotonous tune.
The incessant work of this well greased PR-machine began in an early stage of WWI. The Austrian-American pioneer of PR-techniques, Edward Louis Bernays, a nephew of Sigmund Freud set its mechanisms going. His book “Propaganda”, a pioneer ‘chef d’oeuvre’ in PR techniques prepared the ground for many evils, among others, NS-Goebbel’s ideological efficiency. With the help of pseudo scientific methods of mass manipulation, Bernays and his ilk managed to completely reverse the American public’s deep reluctance to entering World War I. Not much later women were misled into the emancipatory goodness of smoking using the same techiques.
With the help of a rich tool box of PR devices it became possible to turn peoples minds to any wanted direction. Wording plays a key role in this devilish game.
