This article will continue the theme of the incredibly broad and important topic area of “divide and conquer”.
This nation suffers from an incredibly large zombie infestation. They seem to be everywhere and there is no escape; at the grocery store, the malls, restaurants, gyms, and ‘educational institutions’.
They exist in a state where everything they see and hear is real but in general what they consume from outside sources is distortion, lies, and propaganda. Their own group wouldn’t do that to them, it’s those other people who are brainwashed deluded and psychologically unbalanced!
The zombies lumber each day through their lives consuming information they mostly agree with going deeper and deeper into their stupor-like trance. And if by chance they get exposed to opposing views, well, their own group’s spokespeople have already taught them how to respond to those lies… Nothing will get through, change, or synthesize.
The tactics used by the Masters of the Universe are ubiquitous; they have achieved their aims to obtain a grip on the minds of those they rule through strategic control of the media, appointed opinion makers, and group leaders. But it wasn’t always like this: before the grips of the virtual reality prison were constructed, public opinion was far more diverse, and information had a much wider berth through which to flow:
We should recognize that many of the nefarious goings on in society and the world were exposed and well known to the masses, literate or not; outrage, popular protests, and demands for action were not uncommon, and sometimes those demands were even met.
Unlike today’s staged protests which obtain mostly the results desired by the ruling elite. We are convinced that the information age has in fact exposed us to more news and enlightenment than ever in the history of humanity, but in fact the multitudes of sources have become so numerous and varied that it is impossible for the average person to validly filter it all and arrive at a cohesive and credible truth, which is why the majority remains tied to the mainstream sources.
The “mainstream” informational dissemination apparatus seems to provide that cohesive and unified reality where everything appears to fall into place, the battle lines are drawn, the groups each have a stake, and all we must do is pick a side based on reason, or much more likely, emotion.
We have already discussed the “divide and conquer” technique used since ancient Roman times and throughout history, but this is the modern version, more covert and friendly, but just as insidious, perhaps more so. We should continue this analysis to the “Illusion of choice” tactic as a natural continuation, since the concepts are perfectly suited for synergistic implementation.
Hegel may be one of the original thinkers credited with penning the treatise on the State’s manipulation or creation of illusion of choice, but it appears from recent scholarship that this is not so, and the “thesis, antithesis, synthesis” attribution to Hegel was actually conjured by Karl Marx or whomever he plagiarized. Regardless of the source, the philosophical trinity has become a mainstay in social control.
“We are grateful to the Washington Post, the New York Times, Time Magazine and other great publications whose directors have attended our meetings and respected their promises of discretion for almost forty years. It would have been impossible for us to develop our plan for the world if we had been subjected to the lights of publicity during those years. But, the world is more sophisticated and prepared to march towards a world government. The supranational sovereignty of an intellectual elite and world bankers is surely preferable to the national auto-determination practiced in past centuries.” -- David Rockefeller, Speaking at the June, 1991 Bilderberger meeting in Baden, Germany (a meeting also attended by then-Governor Bill Clinton and Dan Quayle
We can find who actually controls most of our media with a simple Google search… My thesis here, hardly a new one, is that in modern times, what is generally known as the “right wing” of the political spectrum, namely the Vatican-Jesuit-Fascist-Knight of Malta-Opus Dei-P2-Republican coalition have been the foremost proponents of a particular style of government, wherein the People have little to no say, and a “benevolent” dictator decides what is best for all, with perhaps a subservient legislative branch possessing minimal authority, generally for show. This is the Pax Romana wing, waiting for restoration of the Holy Roman Empire, regardless of their stated religious affiliation.
The apparent opposition to this paradigm, the world Communist movement, the illuminists, leftists, progressives, masons, Democrats, Marxists, globalists, environmentalists, atheists, technocrats, etc. appear to favor a more “democratic,” or the illusorily democratic process, which provides at least some measure of popular participation, regardless of the actual effect of this involvement on actual governance of a nation.They see government by the enlightened elite as preferable to any other, with the masses swayed as mobs in the necessary direction through mind-control and propaganda, so they follow willingly.
So here we have thesis, antithesis, and the synthesis in the common action of the two opposing forces, apparently arriving at a compromise on any particular action, and ostensibly for the good of the nation or on the other hand we get the failed vote and continued conflict, without the “synthesis”.
Reason can provide the map to our analysis on this point. My imagination runs wild… Imagine a late night meeting between a few power brokers trying to pass some significant authoritarian legislation which will result in federalized power and billions in profits, simultaneously:
“I can’t get a few of these Republicans to vote for it, they’ll lose their seats as freshmen, but I can get these other guys because they’re safe. But, again, we need to make it look like there’s major opposition. Let’s do what we always do, we’ll get a few of the safe opposition votes to go on all the shows and make some speeches, look really serious, raise a fuss, then one or two will switch votes at the last minute…”
Or in another instance: “The right is losing its base of support, we need to make a show vote so that the media can blow it up into a huge public battle. Let’s just have the entire party unify and vote against this bill, don’t worry, we’ll try again in six months and it’ll pass.”
Consider that it’s all just a Hollywood stage production; pre-planned, carefully organized, and scripted. Can you imagine that? This is how the dialectic works today; both sides are controlled, and the synthesis is always to the benefit of the eye in the pyramid on our money.
Hence today we have a ‘conflict’ between the Right and the Left, an artificial construct of the overarching divide and conquer strategy, both lionizing the ideals of liberty and self-determination, both worshiping the US Constitution as their sacred holy document, but simultaneously both leading the nation toward some form of their own respective tyranny; they are both in fact on the same totalitarian side of the freedom spectrum.
Neither contingent expressly espouses the “Republican” system of government, that which was propagated by the Founders of the United States. You know, the Ben Franklin “A Republic, if you can keep it” Republican government?
My personal view is that at the top both movements are guided and managed by a single force, and nothing I have seen has convinced me that any opposition has been real, aside from less than a small handful of as yet un-bought, un-corrupted, un-blackmailed congress people.
