Media Manipulation Machine

The media matrix tells us how to think
But your gut keeps drumming otherwise
This media matrix is their weakest link
Those not turning it off will face demise

Open-minded skepticism – light in the dark
Discern, verify, recheck, then ruminate
You find irregularities which incite a spark:
“Was that event planned, or was it fate?”

The box keeps spitting its lies, war & fear
Claiming they stand for peace & justice
Always unbiased! – Almost in the clear…
Yet,many lies, can I really believe just this?

Methodical & trenchant – time to gather info
By then reading articles, books, dox & papers
Before you know it, you are a truth nympho
Finding deaths, lies & even sinister capers

The propaganda cannon stands in your way
Solution? Unplug from the box, its old news
Come hell or high water, this is YOUR DAY
Let us see what OUR reality really holds true…

Conformity Crisis – [Part 2]

ConformityKennedy

“If you do not express your own original ideas, if you do not listen to your own being, you will have betrayed yourself.”
– Rollo May

In part one, we discussed how individuals groups of people often conform to particular ideas based upon what they have often learned from others rather than what they chose for themselves.

Here, we will touch upon other examples where folks conform with or without their knowledge.

In many instances one can see individuals a group of people walking down the street wearing just one color clothing. Just one. Not even two. That would be way too hard. One – *phew* – that took a lot of effort! The boundless color-wheel is the kryptonite to their monochromatic reality. The interesting part is, that many [didn’t say all mind you] of those individuals just traded one system of ideas for another.

One can definitely see that they wanted to “be different” and “stand out,” except in the process of rebelling they didn’t use their imagination to find a solution that made them happy, they just chose to wear the latest idea of rebellion conformity brought about by others.   And heaven forbid if they dare use their imagination challenge the group.

————————————–

On the opposite side of the spectrum, about a lifetime yonder, yours truly was friends with a variety of adolescents from different walks of life.  Different nationalities, different social/wealth backgrounds, religions, the works.  Although we each opted to conform in our different ways, the one way we stood out was in the make-up of our group.

Our ‘core’ group of friends was composed of a black kid, three white kids, an asian, two mexicans, two puertorican, and a Greek kid. Talk about the spice of life!  We could have started one interesting restaurant.

All jest aside, at times whenever we were seen rummaging about the neighborhood, some people gawked at us like it was Satan’s children venturing out of the furnace. It was quite amusing. It was like an adolescent version of the United Nations, except without the nonsense and the drama. Unfortunately, others viewed us like we weren’t even supposed to consider such a sacrilegious undertaking. Sadly, it was them who were in the wrong.  Thankfully though, our parents were very supportive of these friendships.

Those nascent friendships strengthened our resolve in this cookie-cutter world. Thankfully, none of those negative views ever strayed us away from who we truly wished to be in certain respects.

Now, getting to know folks from different races, creeds, religions, and so on, is a walk in the park for myself. Why? Because we all have seen good and bad in every one of those branches of society, and it would be highly ignorant to think that just because the minority of a particular group of people chooses to act in any detrimental way, that the majority should be cast in the same light. It is that very mentality that aids in the left/right global mind-control didactic that is often pushed onto the populace.

Back then, we would have better conversations about life, purpose and meaning, whenever we would together far more often than most adults have now. How is this known?  Any real semblance of a real conversation one wishes to undertake these days is met with askance glances as if one just asked for the equation for light speed.

In any case, getting back on track, those imaginative discussions of ours were by far my favorite part of growing up, ruminating about the mysteries of life without a map, but that’s what made it beautiful. Why? Because people weren’t breathing down or necks telling us what to believe and selling us their latest version of reality. Our imagination was boundless – we played, we talked, we drew, we conquered, we went on adventures and let nothing stop us.

It was a long time before it was possible for me to run into any people that really saw reality as a breathless expanse – a blank page, a blank canvas – instead of the boring conformity-induced reality that is so prevalent today.

Years ago began finding some of these folks in the most interesting and ironic of places. Life was life, and paths converged, and new adventures began.

Gravitating to these folks was natural, like breathing. They were my brethren – comrades in arms ready to take on life in individual relentless ways that challenge your very soul. Pondering everything. Holding nothing back.  They elevated my well being quite profoundly to say the least.

In any case, this post was originally meant to head in a different direction, but that didn’t feel right at the time. Gotta’ follow your instincts, right?

One thing that has become clearer to me over time is that those people that truly stand out don’t fall into systems – any systems. They just are. They let the dice roll where they may. They are each alphas. They each command their own constellations of reality in ways most couldn’t dream of. It often ends up leaving them misunderstood, because people can’t imagine things could be ‘that way’ – i.e. lack of imagination.

Still, they plow forth undeterred, for anything else for them would be selling out, not being authentic, and ultimately not living in a meaningful way. And that’s simply unacceptable.

You all have a wonderful day.

Let’s digress:

“Creativity is not the work of a few. We each carry within us the image of God the Creator; we each have the task of making the earth into a fairer, kinder place. The first step is imagining a better world, and that is most apt to happen when we suffer or look on suffering.”
– Elizabeth O’Connor

From the very moment the printing press came to be, the course of history was instantly altered.

Information, and more importantly ideas, now had the capability to change the breath of the land. This did not go unnoticed by those in power.

Shaping conscious thought – reality – now was possible in ways previous generations could only dream of.

Soon thereafter, propaganda would become an even more effective tool when used in conjunction with the printing press, and its latest extension – mass media.

This is why now, in our time, the CIA has had its tentacles embedded deeply within the mainstream media structure. But this is not a recent event. Since at least the 1950s or so, the CIA had people working on their payroll influencing the American public:

Why is that of importance? Because a press that is run by a separate entity such as the CIA, or a press that has to seek approval due to censorship before publishing stories is not a free press. Censorship is antithetical to the truth. This lack of truth by all mainstream networks should eviscerate any credibility they might have with the population.

An incisive quote by H.G. Wells when he wrote for the New York Times best encapsulates the ramifications of modern media:

“Modern means of communications – the power afforded by print, telephone, wireless and so forth, of rapidly putting through directive strategic or technical conceptions to a great number of cooperating centers, of getting quick replies and effective discussion – have opened up a new world of political processes. Ideas and phrases can now be given an effectiveness greater than the effectiveness of any personality and stronger than any sectional interest.”[1]

Like the kings and rulers of time past, this piercing effectiveness that communications can bring has was quickly put to use by rulers/globalists of our era.

“Like Hitler, who sought to bring individuals alienated by the Industrial Revolution and Depression into a hive-like German Volk, or united people, the globalists who control America’s mass media have attempted to bring citizens into one common worldview by the unremitting dissemination of homogenous news and information. Networks and cable channels routinely accept reports from “pool reporters, which results in many channels presenting the same version of the news.”[2]

The aforementioned statement by author and renown researcher Jim Marrs gravitates to the core of the matter succinctly.

An evolution of social control has taken place via a variety of modalities, spearheaded mainly by modern communications such as the television, the Internet, and to a lesser extent books and magazine et al. This control grid, and its endless propaganda, has locked a large portion of humanity in lockstep with the plans of the ruling powers.

This is a prime example why people must educate themselves and spend the time needed to not only learn how to think critically, but also sift through information carefully – much of it designed to distract you – in order to figure out what is pertinent and what is outright garbage. Being able to do accomplish this will mean the different between knowing the truth or living a lie.

One facet that has simplified this information lockdown has been the monopolization of Corporations that control the media. With only six media giants running the show and exercising unprecedented control, it does not take a genius to see that such a monopoly in information distribution clearly facilitates the shaping of our opinions, and ultimately, our world.

In a society in which people do not bother to question anything, scripted stories become the daily dish du jour.

Some people seem to be waking up, based on how many people are detaching from networks such as CNBC, who recently had its viewership decline to 8-year lows.

A lot work remains to be done however. The propaganda is relentless, and the mind control and techniques employed by mass media have been ongoing for quite some time.

Only by continuously educating ourselves will we be able to figure out the lies told by the mainstream media such as when the Associated Press was caught lying about water fluoridation or when the media was caught lying [again] about supplements. Keep in mind these are only but a smidgen of the vast and elaborate falsehoods put forth by mainstream.

To finalize:

“One of our best-kept secrets is the degree to which a handful of huge corporations control the flow of information in the United States. Whether it is television, radio, newspapers, magazines, books, or the Internet, a few giant conglomerates are determining what we see, hear, and read. And the situation is likely to become much worse as a result of radical deregulation efforts by the Bush administration and some horrendous court decisions,” warned Congressman Bernie Sanders, adding, “This is an issue that Congress can no longer ignore.”[3]

Such an ominous warning should be taken to heart, because our very livelihoods – and those of future generations – depend on it.

What steps will YOU take to educate yourself and others?

The choice is yours.

Analyzing Human Action – Chicago Protests / Riots

Analyzing Human Action – Chicago Protests / Riots

As is being reported by alternative certain media outlets, there is an upsurge in protests/riots taking place in Chicago due to the recent ‘police murder’ of a 17-year old.

In our precious post regarding human action, we discussed how quickly the populace was to follow official narrative and spread certain memes, even though events of vastly more magnitude take place yearly, and nobody cares, or ‘notices’. This above event dovetails with that premise rather incisively.

From the outset of the protests, you can see how angry people are – unfortunately only minorities, for the most part – after one of ‘their own’ is treated in such a depraved and horrifying manner. There is nothing wrong with that. What better purpose for folks than to stand up for others?

Certainly, if we don’t stand up for one another, nothing will ever get accomplished. Individuals would just get run over by the machine. The problem with scenarios like these latest riots are the fact that people will riot over one lost life, which is fine, but when a couple of hundred thousand people lose their lives like clockwork year in and year out, nobody bats an eyelash. That shows the power of the media.

Don’t believe me? Want to riot/protest for someone? How about the 225,000 to 400,000 [conservative estimate] people who lose their lives to medical mistakes in the west?

The above numbers are quotes from two separate studies. The first study was recently conducted in 2013 by the Journal of Patient Safety who estimated medical deaths amount to between up to 440,000 as detailed by Dr. Mercola. The second study called conducted in July 26, 2000 named “Is US health really the best in the world?” ad was authored by Dr. Barbara Starfield – who had absolutely impeccable credentials and worked for John Hopkins School Of Public Health at the time – and published in the Journal Of The American Medical Association. That particular paper can be downloaded freely as a PDF here.

People are allowing their realities to be manipulated literally, by the corporate cartels that run information in our daily lives. Especially when the media is known for their sleight of hand actions against individuals.
This is not a critique of folks who stand up for a lost life, this is a call for EVERYONE to stand up EVERY SINGLE DAY FOR EVERYONE. Can we be more trenchant?

Leaving us all with some introspection:

“It is only when we stand up, with all our failings and sufferings, and try to support others rather than withdraw into ourselves, that we can fully live the life of community.”
– Jean Vanier

Conformity Crisis – [Part 1]

“Conformity is the jailer of freedom and the enemy of growth.”
– John F. Kennedy

Conformity is like a virus. It wholly envelops you, it eviscerates you incisively, it sand by the time you find out you’re a victim, it’s too late. Conformity in fact plagues a large sector of society.

When people conform they are acting in congruity with what which is right with that which in the end draws energy from them in a myriad of ways. In many instances, these so engineered social standards et al. facilitate the top-down control that is prevalent in society. This control mechanism begins at the top, and ends with you.

At the top, stand the institutions, corporations and governments that mold the populace in many sophisticated ways. Among these tools are: entrainment technology, social engineering, mind control and relentless propaganda. These are carried out at various degrees and to a variety of reasons.

Sacrificed at the altar of the collective stands the authentic individual, who if ignorant of such issues falls like the next domino in a long calculated game.

There are varying ways in which we can see how individuals have fallen by the wayside of conformity. Some of these include individuals who wish others to be authentic individuals just like them. What better than to be a carbon copy? This is ever-present from child all the way into adulthood. Truthfully, it is the fact that it begins in childhood that makes it so abnormal in adulthood.

Another common example is anyone who is wishing to impose their world view on you [be it knowingly or unknowingly i.e. politics, religion], rather than have you arrive at your own conclusion. Heaven forbid you think for yourself. No reason to do that, others can do it for you. Need we get any more specific here?

Other ‘smaller’ examples of this pervasive dilemma are people that are shunned for wearing something different, or having a different hairstyle, for dating someone different, and so on and so forth. “How dare they be different!?”

The permutations of this issue are nigh endless and as time passes this control mechanism seeps into the mind of many, and manages in a virulent & twisted way to morph them into perfect little robots – cogs in the machine.

Rendered useless are the creative thoughts of the individual. Imagination sacrificed for the comfort of the collective. Comfort. Such a…comfortable word. In fact, comfort is exactly why many people do rarely anything to push themselves further in life. It is a nice word concept, until some become a slave for comfort.

Comfort can be a good thing at times, when one’s had a rather exhausting and fulfilling day. Yet comfort is not the main driver in many people’s lives when they want it.

Ever seen some women get ready to get all dolled-up and be their best dashing selves? It sure can’t be comfortable [to some!] spending so much time doing their hair, putting in a lot of work into personal appearance, maneuvering daily with nails that double as claws [not a bad thing!] or wearing high heels and so on. Definitely NOT comfortable. Why do they do it? Because not only do they love to look good amazing, but the net results of such work is often greater then taking the easy way out.

What does the above have to do with conformity? Isn’t it obvious? Ever see women get competitive? Technically, many folks try and out do others, but women trying to outdo do others for a date, job, notoriety will do so in such an admirable and yet vicious way [at times] that it’s worthy of admiration. Nothing is held back – nothing. Their nemesis will be waylaid into oblivion, shred into the vortex of destruction that they deserve for walking in their path. The rather unique – yes, unique! – way in which women stand out from the crowd/competition can be quite the sight. The epitome of individuality, to the point that its become an industry empire that our ancestors would never have dreamed off.

Individuality is the alpha to conformity’s omega. It’s the beginning to conformity’s end.

Really, who wants to be a facsimile of somebody else, when they can act different from the crowd? Or dress different? Live different? Think different?   Create different – Be different.

There are many unique individuals out there, flaunting your own style – not settling for anything nor anyone. You are lauded for that. You are the tip of the spear my friends. Without you, life would be boring. Ponder that anytime someone wishes to impose their cookie-cutter reality upon you.

As someone once said, if you’re lucky enough to be different, don’t ever change.  And what better method to breakaway, than that?

Finalizing:

“The reward for conformity is that everybody likes you except yourself.”
– Rita Mae Brown

Sleight Of Hand – Duplicitous Actions Against The Individual

By: Zy Marquiez
November 24, 2015

“We’ll know our disinformation program is complete when everything the US public believes is false.”
– William J. Casey, Director of Central Intelligence from 1981 to 1987

——————-

As a preamble, for our definitions sleight of hand denotes ways of deceiving people.

There are many ways in which certain institutions, corporations and government bodies carry out duplicitous actions against the populace. Such a hindrance should not go unnoticed, for this is diametrically opposed to the population, and ultimately, the individual.

What are some ways in which the Corporate Cartel & Co. carries out its deceptive dealings?

For starters, let us take a gander at organic foods GMOs. First of all, GMOs – genetically modified organisms – are not required to be labelled in America, even though country after country after country continues to show its utter disdain against this unproven technology.  If there ever were a time to ponder certain issues brought about by many scientists, it would be now.

How does one have freedom, if one is not able to discern what type of food one is eating, and whether or not it was created by Mother Nature or in a biolab by Big Biotech? Additionally, many of these very products are labeled ‘natural’ even though they are not. The good thing is though, that one way in which individuals can fight this treacherous tyranny is by buying locally sourced, organic, non-genetically modified foods. This is one large step in the right direction to buck the system that continues to milk communities and families.

Another unfortunate event taking place in most of America is the fact that much of the water in the United States is fluoridated. This should be rather appalling given that a major Harvard study was conducted that confirmed that fluoride lowers IQ. That is just the tip of the iceberg.

Over the last few years, there has been quite the progress in the elimination of fluoride from the water supplies by the Fluoride Action Network [FAN]. This has been quite a lengthy battle, but its far from over.

Many communities still face a veritable onslaught of toxins via the water ways. Some of these include chlorine, pharmaceutical drugs, hexavalent chromium, lead, aluminum, heavy metals, and much more.

It doesn’t stop there.

There has been an incisive recognition of media censorship by certain folks such as Sharyl Attkison. She is not alone however, as others such as independent reporter James Corbett have spoken out against such deceitful practices.

Regular mainstream media is not the only one curtailing people’s freedom of speech right. In a place that’s hailed as the bee’s knees of content sharing and online ‘freedom’, YouTube [caught several times] and FaceBook have been caught censoring countless folks quite a few times as well [this is known to me personally, as well]. This has prompted certain truth seekers from various walks of life to gravitate to other social media as well.

What the above censorship is accomplishing is a deceptive management of reality/information in a way that is highly detrimental to individuals who value freedom, which is what America is supposed to be about.

Via the examples of water noxious liquid that isn’t really as nature intended, non-gmo organic food genetically manipulated organisms that barely pass as food and is claimed natural, when it isn’t, and media that often claims to stand for freedom of speech, but doesn’t, we are seeing a multi-pronged attack on liberties in many shapes and forms. This keen sleight of hand needs to be recognized by the individual in order for he/she to detach from the grid that continually bleeds their energy in their many forms.

There are many other disciplines that are used in a calculated manner to manipulate reality. This is just a cursory overview of just some that the individual needs to be cognizant of in our daily lives.

How are we, as individuals, supposed to advance ourselves when many of the objects that are vital to our well being and lives are being transmuted into something complete different?

If that isn’t sleight of hand, then we live in an alternative version reality.

“Jargon is the verbal sleight of hand that makes the old hat seem newly fashionable; it gives an air of novelty an specious profundity to ideas that, if stated correctly, would seem superficial, stale, frivolous, or false.  The line between serious and spurious scholarship is an easy one to blur, with jargon on your side.”
– David Lehman

Pray For Paris? – Pray For Everyone

By: Zy Marquiez
Necember 21, 2015

“Love recognizes no barriers. It jumps hurdles, leaps fences, penetrates walls to arrive at its destination full of hope.”
– Maya Angelou

———————————————-

There has been quite a preponderance of people ‘praying for Paris’ and such. In Analyzing Human Action – Paris Events, we previously covered the fact that there are many notable effects from prayer, intention, and meditation. What human consciousness can accomplish truly is a beautiful thing.

One thing that kept taking place, over and over in a myriad of online venues was the fact that everyone was focused on Paris. That is natural, as most of the population tends to follow the latest news like a moth to a flame amidst chaos and suffering.

The ironic part is, that there were many other issues in the past, and nobody seemed to give a damn. It seems as reality is only official when the media expounds it, and nobody else. Countless individuals, albeit in the minority, have been yelling from the rooftops at myriad of other massacres that have taken place. Yet, almost nobody bats an eye lash.

Some of these people will say they haven’t heard of it, and yet when greater issues are shown to them, they still opt to give attention to the smaller, more ‘well known’ issue/s, while completely ignoring the obviously larger [more deaths, suffering, repeatedly], ‘less known’ issue that’s not being reported by the media. And yet they claim that they care. It boggles the mind at times to be honest.

In very recent times, Nigeria, Yemen, have been on the unfortunate receiving end of terrorist attacks. Twenty-two people died in Yemen, and fifty died in Nigeria – and yet not a peep from the media, and less so from the populace. Where are all the prayers for them

In fact, as the chart from the Global Terrorism Index 2015 elucidates, Western Countries experience only 2.6% of deaths from terrorism, and yet they receive nigh all of the attention.

What’s more, is that Nigeria is the country which has experienced the largest increase in deaths since 2013, according to the Global Terrorism Index 2015. In fact, at least 5,662 people lost their lives since, and nobody is showcasing Nigerian flags. Not to too far behind, Iraq has been the recipient of 3,532 deaths to their population, and nobody is showcasing that flag either.

In the ultimate view of warped reality/logic, some will say: “But Islam is to blame! They don’t deserve our prayers.” As if what the few do, the many should be punished for. That goes without saying, that very same logic allows the other side of that equation to think that since the West is at the tip of the spear in War for many centuries, then ‘everyone’ in the West is at fault. The epitome of faulty logic; and you wonder why War is endemic to our society when people do not ponder about macro issues and only focus on what the media tells them too.

Okay. Let us assume that for the sake of argument Yemen, Nigeria, and Iraq don’t ‘deserve our prayers’ even though the deaths in Nigeria and Iraq dwarf France by many orders of magnitude. It is your right after all, and nobody should force you to pray for those they do not wish to pray for.

Let’s use a closer example, one that only encompasses the West.

Want to pray for someone? How about the 225,000 to 400,000 [conservative estimate] people who lose their lives to medical mistakes in the west?

The above numbers are quotes from two separate studies. The first study was recently conducted in 2013 by the Journal of Patient Safety who estimated medical deaths amount to between up to 440,000 as detailed by Dr. Mercola. The second study called conducted in July 26, 2000 named “Is US health really the best in the world?” ad was authored by Dr. Barbara Starfield – who had absolutely impeccable credentials and worked for John Hopkins School Of Public Health at the time – and published in the Journal Of The American Medical Association. That particular paper can be downloaded freely as a PDF here.

Extrapolating from the above data, the deaths mentioned above are many orders of magnitude over Yemen and Nigeria, and absolutely eviscerates the amount of lives lost in France. Why isn’t this all over the news? Because that is not ‘part of the plan’.

And why isn’t the above information in any late night narratives? Because that would unhinge the blind faith the people have on Big Medica – the American Medical cartel and its endless streams of profits that are interlinked to Big Pharma. It would also make people worried, and ultimately stir up a hornet’s nest of vicissitudes by the actions that would be subsequent to those revelations.

The populace would inquire: “Why haven’t we been told about this?” “What are you doing to change it?” “Has my loved one been a recipient of medical malpractice?” “If the medical system is to trust, why are those numbers increasing?”

Reality reduction is the name of the game, and reality will ultimately be – if the individual allows it – what the media expresses. Deaths in the West all get overwhelming amounts of shameless/endless mainstream press. Deaths in non-Western countries? Not important – nigh a scintilla of coverage.

Some would roll their eyes. But really, if deaths and terrorism acts are to be reported, shouldn’t we be hearing of all of the above deaths and not just the ones selectively used to mold mainstream consciousness of reality?

Knowing this, how does one think that most of the populace would react to such knowledge? Would they ‘Pray For Paris’? Pray for Nigeria? Yemen? Iraq? All the lives lost to Big Medica/Pharma? All were lives lost in unfortunate and atrocious circumstances.

Better yet, why don’t folks Pray for Everyone?

Finalizing with two heartfelt quotes:

“Keep love in your heart. A life without it is like a sunless garden when the flowers are dead.”
– Oscar Wilde

“Spread love everywhere you go. Let no one ever come to you without leaving happier.”
