    I really think we have an enormously gifted population that can work it's way out of this shit. But, unfortunately, this population will have to un-hook the cable and begin to think critically about the utter wall of lies being presented to us 24/7. Everything and I mean everything we hear about the world on the MSM is false--even when it is "true." If people can realize that and learn to read these "events" reported on the media like Kremlinologists read Pravda and Soviet government pronouncements then we'll be getting somewhere.

    This deconstruction of the MSM is essential or there is no hope at all. Once that begins to happen you will see a change in the MSM.

      Maybe the ongoing destruction of News Corp. may be the crack in the dam?

        but you also have to be aware of unconscious manipulation. One of the things the media, including the entertainment media, count on is the fact most Americans don't believe in the unconscious and its ability to be manipulated without our knowing it. It's best to stay away from it--the assumptions inherent in the presentations are what get you if they are combined with the proper unconscious symbols.
