We’ve lived so long under the spell of hierarchy—from god-kings to feudal lords to party bosses—that only recently have we awakened to see not only that “regular” citizens have the capacity for self-governance, but that without their engagement our huge global crises cannot be addressed. The changes needed for human society simply to survive, let alone thrive, are so profound that the only way we will move toward them is if we ourselves, regular citizens, feel meaningful ownership of solutions through direct engagement. Our problems are too big, interrelated, and pervasive to yield to directives from on high.

“Lone Wolf” Terror and the PsyWar on American Public Opinion

Click here to access article by James Tracy from his blog Memory Hole.
The corporate media chieftains and their subordinate producers and editors overseeing the modern consciousness industry thus have free reign to manipulate the thoughts, fears, even the dreams of the populace, thereby shaping the psychic basis for what is deemed desirable public policy. They choose specific stories and gauge the extent of their exposure to craft national public opinion and dismiss others not upholding certain agendas, such as race-based social tension and gun control. As the observations below suggest, Time Warner’s CNN is a central agent in bolstering such perspectives.
There have been so many false flag operations perpetrated by our masters for more obvious reasons that I have ignored some that exhibited less obvious reasons. However, after reading this careful analysis of differential coverage of mass-murder events in recent years, I think Tracy has opened many questions about the agendas of our masters' corporate media.
How can one explain such disparate coverage? It may be attributable to the random nature of editorial decision-making at major news outlets. A more critical analysis, however, suggests a coordinated effort to maneuver public opinion behind the “war on terror” and continued public acceptance of America’s police state.
It appears that all coverage provided via TV is carefully managed to instill in the minds of Americans the political interests of our masters and to insure that ordinary American support their interests. Consider another illustration of this regarding a completely different issue--China's recent devaluation of their currency by 2%. Pepe Escobar's take on this in an article entitled "What the Latest Currency 'War' is All About" clarifies for us what our masters' TV coverage of this event really is--another attack by our ruling capitalist class on China and to encourage ordinary Americans to see China as an enemy. Even traditional conservative Americans like Ron Paul are seeing this as a ruse.
