An Exploration of the Propaganda That Sustains the Pandemic Industrial Complex
"The plain fact is that education is itself a form of propaganda - a deliberate scheme to outfit the pupil, not with the capacity to weigh ideas, but with a simple appetite for gulping ideas ready-made. The aim is to make 'good' citizens, which is to say, docile and uninquisitive citizens." ~ H. L. Mencken
I think I am biased because I am surrounded by people who are awake but that is probably because of selection. Ontario is one of the worst places in the world for coronaquackery. My wifes' workplace is bringing back masking, and it's a university. So much for "high education".
I am also mid 60's and take no medications. This makes me an enemy of the state, I suppose. Haven't been to a doctor for 10 years, no longer going for my "annual checkup" as it seemed to be a ritual rather than anything useful.
Wow! This is one of the best pieces I've ever read about the concentration of ownership of media and propaganda applied to what we've been experiencing. Thank you. On this Thanksgiving I am grateful for Substack, and every writer who, like you, takes the time to dissect the bs flowing from power centers and lay it out for us all to see. Hallelujah!
Have a great one.
It's amazing (and discouraging) how much these voluntary "guidelines" intimidate healthcare professionals. About a year ago, there was an article about a couple who had covid and had gotten a doctor to prescribe IVM, but they couldn't find a pharmacy that was willing to fill it (in my opinion, these pharmacists were guilty of practicing medicine without a license).They wound up using "horse paste" and rapidly recovered. Since this was in my home state, I went to all of the local pharmacies, and asked them how they would have handled this. All of them answered, "Well the FDA says..." or "Our corporate policy prevents....blah blah de blah blah." The one exception was a pharmacist at a small local privately owned drug store. When I asked her "If someone brings you a prescription for IVM to treat covid, will you fill it?" she answered quickly and firmly "Yes." It was clear that the other pharmacists at least believed that filling such a prescription would jeopardize their careers.
My God, this is long, but EXCELLENT!!!
Sorry I'm a little off-topic, but I thought I should share this info. The WaPo just admitted that the latest CDC data show most Covid deaths are now among the vaccinated. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2NaLUYt1qc4
Wow, this is just brilliant. As an anti-authoritarian leftist, I would say you pick up off of where Chomsky betrayed us.
This is great, and great to have a name for what I had seen happening, most recently the attack on Dr. John Campbell and Dr. Mahouta (forgive the wrong spelling) from a youtube account called Back to the Science, with Cindy the dog and an ostensible description of a so called "carrot" technique. Really sophisticated, appearing to be an analytic for the savvy. All of you doctors and medical professionals across all these platforms are just so incredibly enduring and brave. I was thinking this morning that it reminds me of a MASH unit during a war, they just keep injuring people and profiting off it, and the dissenting doctors keep getting floods of injured people. Someone close to me was a medic in Vietnam, very sensitive, a poet, and it about broke him forever. I deeply hope you are all finding ways to keep sane and care for yourselves. I'm more for a Ghost Supper than a Thanksgiving, but get some rest and tryptophan all you weary souls. Thank you forever for what you do.
This same type of lies and propaganda also destroys good candidates for elected office and enables entities to steal elections. And people fall for it "hook, line, and sinker." Nothing to see here folks!
If a person learns how to read, think critically, and avoid peer and family pressure, he/she sees through the propaganda. But most people are too gullible, lazy, pressured, or destructively educated to read OR think critically. Many of the smartest, best educated people I know are still drinking the Covid Cool Aid through a fire hose. They absolutely refuse to exchange their Cool Aid for something healthier because they've been told by "experts" that Cool Aid is safe and effective.
Viruganda scamdemic is threatened by died suddenly, which even my housemate found eye opening, although far too late....the Harmacide is accelerating nevertheless, I am afraid
This is another very interesting read. Thank you. I am not sure how you can work your practice and find time to research and write but kudos to you! I think I am fortunate to come from a lineage of people who watched very little TV and made fun of the news and advertisers if we did watch occasionally. That was our entertainment, the absurdity, and silliness of it all. We raised our youngsters without TV as a babysitter and they are successful in their businesses and careers. I am grateful we didn't fall into the covid madness and saw the "programming" take place in real-time.
Im a doc in private practice ... a surgical specialist ... ophthalmology. I have a bkrd in biochem. Over the years i have witnessed the dynamic described here many times
Great article - I would add the impact of the Telecommunications Act of 1996 (Clinton Administration). IMHO - Devastating for freedom loving people. " The media has become controlled by a handful of corporations thanks to the Telecommunications Act of 1996." https://billmoyers.com/story/twenty-years-of-media-consolidation-has-not-been-good-for-our-democracy/
Assange is in prison because he spoke the truth. Countries need ongoing wars to launder money for one thing. Like what just happened with FTX and the Ukraine.
AMWD - please just trust the safe and effective vaccine. Shame on you for promoting vaccine hesitancy!*
