Sigmund Freud’s nephew, Edward Bernays- Father of SpinPosted: May 27, 2010
Looking at every , culture, religion, society and every government… they tell you what is the truth.
That, is the truth they want you to own as your own. A truth to live for and sometimes even die for.
If it feels right for you embrace it, own it as your own, but bear in mind that the words that are sold as absolute truths often help to financially line the pockets of those in power while disempowered humanity often claims these truths without experiencing them.
It is like a blind man saying red is the best colour, because he has been told that from birth in subliminal and non- subliminal ways. That is when ones life becomes a lie. And lies always lead towards illness. Individual illness and societal illness.
If you doubt these words just check the statistics for mental illnesses and see the rebellious nature of youth today. Why are they rebellious? Because they are smart and they don’t buy the lies. But then as they get older the fear dominated “democratic”, “communist” etc world takes over their psyche and they too succumb to the lies.
As I live in the democratic world I would like to point out where I think our “truth” is coming from.
“The Father of Spin Edward Bernays, helped fashion modern democracy immensely.
Bernays who made:
bacon a fashionable breakfast food on behalf of pig farmers,
who championed women’s rights to smoke in public (while being paid by Lucky Strikes (cigarette company)),
and who made radios a highbrow item (for Philco) said,
“The conscious and intelligent manipulation of the organized habits and opinions of the masses is an important element in democratic society.”
Bernays’s job was to reframe an issue; to create a desired image that would put a particular product or concept in a desirable light. Bernays described the public as a “herd that needed to be led.” And this herd like thinking makes people “susceptible to leadership.”
I believe, that whether you live in the USA or UK or elsewhere that IS how humanity is viewed, by the modern corporate world and political world.
Looking at Forbes richest corporations/industries lists one should question how, who,why, when, where etc they have got sooo rich.. if a more JUST version of their “truth” is desired.
the banking/insurance corporations
the petrochemical industry
the pharmaceutical industry
There are only a few individuals as heads of these corporations and industries but they seem to pull many strings.
Their puppets include:
most of modern media
food industry (dairy and meat industry) and GM industry
the medical institutions where our doctors are taught
I use the word “puppets” because when I look at some of the key people and laws in place, it is evident that they have been “bought” thus support the continued financial growth, and other interests of these corporations and industries at the expense of human suffering and planetary demolition.
(e.g the Bush family and Haliburton connection)
Their influence storm down on us and rule us through the schooling system from day one.
Bernays never deviated from his fundamental axiom to “control the masses without their knowing it.” The best PR happens when the people are unaware that they are being manipulated.
Bernays pioneered the use of third-party “unbiased” organizations to champion or denegrate a position, depending on who was paying him. He created hundreds of “foundations” and “agencies” to support his positions — all of which were funded by the big corporations he was shilling for.
His mentality is often heard, felt by those offering an alternative product therapy ( not controlled by the big corporations)
“Experts” from “unbiased” agencies use emotionally-charged denigrating phrases, like “scientific poppycock” or “junk science” when discussing alternative therapies…..”
I found some of the above info (highlighted by dark blue) on the internet a few years ago and thought I would share it someday…
