Mass media is the most powerful tool in the armory of control. Used at length by government special interest groups and companies, Mass Media has the power to shape lives, implant convictions and propagate bias and fear.
Mainstream media mass Media is an irresistible psychological method of brainwashing that no person can escape from over a period of time. Mass Media, even though it has the ability to shape lives in a positive fashion sad to say, this hasn’t been its sole purpose. By manipulating what individuals watch, their very belief system can be modified. Given lots of time, somebody can be assured that the sky is purple if that message is what the Media programmers need.
The government uses mass media as a tool of indoctrination and companies use it to sell you stuff you are told you need to get more money out of you. Mass Media, however, is most perilous to our kids as their minds are young and it’s easy to manifest in them intense wishes for real things programming them for the gluttony culture and by utilizing kids to incentivize their parents to purchase.
Children should not watch television unmonitored and in no eventuality should there be mass media in the bedroom of a kid. Remove television from the house and away from your children and just watch the change in their lives.
Mass Media puts out many messages today that shape your child’s understanding of the world such as these that follow:
The state is good and can be trusted (being as you don’t know what’s good for you; the state does though)
The world is brim-full of terrorists all needing to attack us for no apparent reason (One mans terrorist is another man’s patriot)
Black folk are bad and are mostly criminals (no insult to black folk meant as this is absolutely bogus as there are good and bad in all races)
Crime is spiraling out of control (although factually statistics indicate crime in all areas is down)
Protect yourself against all the evildoers that are going to rob you and break into your house (never lock my door and never been robbed or broken into)
Work conscientiously for little money (No chance to generate wealth)
Spend all of your cash (So long as you have debt you aren’t free)
Don’t raise questions (Never doubt authority)
Shut up and do what you are told (The state does not care what you want)
Our society is just and fair to all (Not if you’re poor though)
Wealth is good (If you’ve got any that is, many of us don’t)
Go to school (So that you can be programmed efficiently)
Always trust the police (Yeah they never lie right)
No individual is above the law (unless you are actually well off)
Violent crime always in the news (keep you shocked and watching)
Catastrophes and natural events (what would you do if the state is not there to save the day)
An initial step in changing your life and reducing the effect of political and big business rhetoric is by removing yourself from the boob tube. Disassociate yourself from media generally. Media takes away your freedom to choose and corrupt your inherent sense of ethics and ethics as ninety percent of what you see and hear in media is false.
The Pentagon has been using the corporate media as a propaganda delivery system for many years. Since 1948, the CIA has dominated corporate media through its Operation Mockingbird.
Once dubbed a “conspiracy theory,” the Church Committee investigation in 1975 exposed a secret Central Intelligence Agency campaign to influence domestic and foreign media beginning in the 1950s.
Starting in the early days of the Cold War (the late ’40s), the CIA began a secret project called Operation Mockingbird, with the intent of buying influence behind the scenes at major media outlets and putting reporters on the CIA payroll. In 1948, Wall Street lawyer Frank Wisner established Mockingbird and recruited Philip Graham from The Washington Post to run the project within the industry. According to Deborah Davis in Katharine the Great; “By the early 1950s, Wisner ‘owned’ respected members of The New York Times, Newsweek, CBS, and other communications vehicles.” [Deborah Davis (1979). Katharine the Great. pp. 137–138.]
After 1953, Operation Mockingbird had a major influence over 25 newspapers and wire agencies. It was discovered that from the 1950s through the 1970s, the CIA was paying many journalists in the USA and foreign locations to publish what they wanted. These organizations were run by people with well-known left-wing views such as William Paley (CBS), Henry Luce (Time and Life Magazine), Arthur Hays Sulzberger (New York Times), Alfred Friendly (managing editor of the Washington Post), Jerry O’Leary (Washington Star), Hal Hendrix (Miami News), Barry Bingham, Sr., (Louisville Courier-Journal), James Copley (Copley News Services) and Joseph Harrison (Christian Science Monitor). [Carl Bernstein (20 October 1977). “CIA and the Media“, Rolling Stone Magazine.]
Media assets include ABC, NBC, CBS, Time, Newsweek, Associated Press, United Press International (UPI), Reuters, Hearst Newspapers, Scripps-Howard, Copley News Service, etc. and 400 journalists, have secretly carried out assignments according to documents on file at CIA headquarters, from intelligence-gathering to serving as go-betweens.
