The Power of Propaganda and the Love of Obscurantism

Ignorance is bliss, right?  Well, what if the ignorance is leading to your eventual set-up for a BIG fall?  What if you have the power or influence to steer someone, or some group of people, into the right path in life- thus saving them from danger- but because you are ignorant or an obscurant (an opposer of reform and enlightenment)you guide them into error, or even worse, into some demise?

What if you are a person of power and influence in society like a doctor, lawyer or politician who have knowledge of the truth on a major subject affecting masses of people, but because you choose to go the way of propaganda for the sake of profit or some kind of gain- instead of waking people up and telling them the truth since you CAN due to your position of influence and power- you lead many people astray into thinking that the status quo is okay? (For example, the EPA head Christine Todd Whitmann telling the 9/11 first responders that the air at the Twin tower rubble was safe to breath, when in reality, IT WASN'T-and she knew it!)

Well, I'm here to say that the two cases above ARE the very things that ARE destroying America: Ignorance and obscurantism from the people and propaganda from the government.

If the people were informed AND ACTIVE AGAINST TYRANNY, propaganda would loose its diabolical power; If the people play dumb (just don't care or indifferent) or ARE just plain dumb, propaganda becomes our worst enemy ALONG WITH our ignorance and obscurant attitudes.

The ancient Greeks believed that ALL citizens WERE TO BE participants in government and anyone who didn't care to be involved was at times ostracized and called an IDIOT (which comes from the Greek word ιδιότης which means a private individual who does not get involved in civic affairs).  But, on the other hand, "the Athenian lawmaker Solon decreed it a crime for any citizen to shrink from controversy." - JFK, just days before he was assasinated. 

Yes, IT IS a duty for the people to EXPOSE the governments wrongdoings AND its propaganda.  JFK did, and the secret ruling elite killed him for it. JFK, in this, IS our example.

But what disturbs me is that there are MANY in the 9/11 truth movement who ARE obscurantists and obscurants when it comes to implicating Israel in the wicked, terrorist acts of 9/11.  Some just plain DO NOT know about Israel's involvement in 9/11, for whatever reason; but, really, I just can't get myself to believe that because if you have really read up on some of the top 9/11 truth leaders, you will definitely see that they implicate Israel in 9/11-along with the US, Saudia Arabia and Pakistan, of course.

I just tend to think that the propaganda about Israel being a real state (both in the eyes of God and the world), the holocaust having taken place as per the US's and other countries UNOFFICIAL view, Christian Zionists' doctrine about Israel and it being a fulfillment of "Biblical prophecy" and, OF COURSE, the PROPAGANDA of "Anti-Semitism" (made up DELIBERATELY by the founder of Zionism himself, Theodore Hertzel in 1896) has A LOT to do with the above mentioned problems with some of the 9/11 truthers who still DO NOT want to be COMPLETELY enlightened on 9/11-and this TO THE DETRIMENT of the movement!

We as humans like to have our cake and eat it, too.  But with 9/11 truth, IT DOSN'T WORK THAT WAY SO STOP WITH THE IGNORANCE AND OBSCURANTISM!!! PLEASE ACTUALLY READ UP ON 9/11 AND BE HONEST WITH AND EMBRACE THE FACTS AND STOP BEING A HINDRANCE TO THIS MOVEMENT BECAUSE THIS IS EXACTLY WHAT THE NEW WORLD ORDER WANTS!!! THIS THING IS TOOOO DEEP AND CANNOT BE TREATED WITH BIAS, PRECONCEIVED NOTIONS, ETC...

Since the beginning of time propaganda has been used to deceive people into going along with some kind of government agenda-and usually to the detriment of human rights and freedom.  


In the case with Israel's (really the Zionists' from the beginning) involvement with the New World Order's plan for world domination, the US propagandizers (the media, educational system, etc. funded by the most powerful bankers most of whom are Jewish or Zionist sympathizers/associates) have really kept Americans in the dark about the truth on the crimes that Israel has been involved with over the past century.  Why?, because Israel is a major ally and asset to the New World Order.  The state of Israel was created as a counter-weight to the nations in the Middle East, Russia and China for interests of the NWO-plain and simple.  So that is why the propagandizers' job has been to greatly get America on board with supporting Israel, and today they have done a good job keeping people on pins and needles when it comes to being "anti-semitic."


Look at the definition of propaganda below:

Cultural Dictionary 

propaganda definition



Official government communications to the public that are designedto influence opinion. The information may be true or false, but it isalways carefully selected for its political effect.
In this country, it's government propaganda that keeps the American people in the dark about the truth about 9/11, etc.

Look at what dictionary.com says, below, about propaganda:


Propaganda

By the way—about Bolshevism: one has to remember that all that is published in the press is propaganda, that the Bolsheviki are the moderate social-revolutionaries, a political party, and the Soviets are a system of government based on the idea of "pure democracy" (Mso called in the textbooks on gov't) that every man shall take direct part in the government of the country—which is arrived at by industrial representation through the heirarchy of soviets, and that much the same system would be in vogue in America—(geographical instead of industrial units) if Hamilton and the rest had taken the New England town-meeting as the unit of government instead of importing Montesquieu's ideas. It's silly to idealize things in Russia, but it is criminal to condemn them unheard. - John Dos Passos (1896–1970), U.S. novelist, poet, playwright, painter. Letter, January 2, 1920, to his friend Rumsey Marvin. The Fourteenth Chronicle: Letters and Diaries of John Dos Passos, ed. by Townsend Ludington (1973). 


Propaganda is that branch of the art of lying which consists in nearly deceiving your friends without quite deceiving your enemies. - F.M. Cornford (1874–1943), British author, poet. Quoted in New Statesman (London, September 15, 1978).


Only the mob and the elite can be attracted by the momentum of totalitarianism itself. The masses have to be won by propaganda. - Hannah Arendt (1906–1975), German-born U.S. political philosopher. The Origins of Totalitarianism, ch. 3, sct. 11 (1951).

It was characteristic of the rise of the Nazi movement in Germany and of the Communist movements in Europe after 1930 that they recruited their members from this mass of apparently indifferent people whom all other parties had given up as too apathetic or too stupid for their attention. The result was that the majority of their membership consisted of people who never before had appeared on the political scene. This permitted the introduction of entirely new methods into political propaganda, and indifference to the arguments of political opponents; these movements not only placed themselves outside and against the party system as a whole, they found a membership that had never been reached, never been "spoiled" by the party system. Therefore they did not need to refute opposing arguments and consistently preferred methods which ended in death rather than persuasion, which spelled terror rather than conviction. - Hannah Arendt (1906–1975), German-born U.S. political philosopher. The Origins of Totalitarianism, ch. 10, Harcourt (1951).

Propaganda is a soft weapon; hold it in your hands too long, and it will move about like a snake, and strike the other way. - Jean Anouilh (1910–1987), French playwright. Warwick, in The Lark, adapted by Lillian Hellman (1955).

Their constant yelping about a free press means, with a few honorable exceptions, freedom to peddle scandal, crime, sex, sensationalism, hate, innuendo and the political and financial uses of propaganda. A newspaper is a business out to make money through advertising revenue. That is predicated on the circulation and you know what circulation depends on. - Raymond Chandler (1888–1959), U.S. author. Harlan Potter, in The Long Goodbye, ch. 32 (1954).

The best propaganda omits rather than invents. - Mason Cooley (b. 1927), U.S. aphorist. City Aphorisms, Sixth Selection, New York (1989).

Propaganda does not deceive people; it merely helps them to deceive themselves. - Eric Hoffer (1902–1983), U.S. philosopher. The Passionate State of Mind, aph. 260 (1955).

And last, but not lest, we have a quote about propaganda from one of the BIGGEST propagandists in the early 20th Cen. See Below:

Why is propaganda so much more successful when it stirs up hatred than when it tries to stir up friendly feeling? - Bertrand Russell (1872–1970), British philosopher, mathematician. The Conquest of Happiness, ch. 6 (1930).
