I discovered this wealth of videos at disclose.tv through google alerts; it’s mostly a conspiracy type video blog. Guess what one of my google alerts is? Here is an extract from the video’s text:
“Using fear and the threat of insecurity to manipulate the people, corporate media, in bed with government, over the years having become the mouthpiece of government control, unleashes a barrage of propaganda, in images and pro-war commentators, to arouse in the population the false sense of security that justifies military action. This way, debate is silenced and dissent is disappeared on the airwaves as once again the corporate media, the gatekeepers of information, allow us only to see and hear the point of view they want us to incorporate into our psyche. Voices of reason and of intelligence are ignored, banished from imparting important thoughts of wisdom, thus making it virtually impossible for the population to ever know there are other options besides the horror of war.”
Most conspiracy theorists only know how to complain about our current conditions; they’re like most people. They figure if they can simply open the people’s minds to the truth, then the evil maladies in this world can be solved.
What most people do not understand is we court and protect lies as long as they are attached to people who make us feel emotionally secure. They’re like our husbands and wives, boyfriends and girlfriends; we don’t care how many lies are attached to these people.
Do you care how many lies are attached to your lover? Probably not. This is because your “lover” makes you feel good and emotionally secure. You probably end up hating anyone who comes along and identifies all those lies attached to your partner like past lovers and sexual orientation. How dare this stranger come out of no where with so many wild conspiracy theories about your “lover” to ruin your life?
The same logic applies to your favourite celebrities. Admit it – Although you don’t really know these people, you’ve been secretly courting them from a distance. Haven’t you? Popular media tells you that these are the people you should be admiring. Your friends, your family, your co-workers tell you that these are the people to gossip about because they are so much more interesting and lead such exciting lives.
Your judgemental heuristics tell you that these TV and radio personalities coming over the airwaves are successful, therefore, they must know better than you, therefore, they must be telling the truth.
They have no reason to lie to you – do they? Why should they lie? I mean, you’ve been courting them from a distance – in your mind. Just because they work for huge, corporate controlled conglomerates with special interests doesn’t mean they have any reason to lie to you. Does it?
But, even if there are lies attached to that husband or wife, it doesn’t matter. Does it? As long as that husband or wife makes you feel good all over, who cares if they dance with the devil?
Feel your breathe. Hear your heart beat. Pretend that your long distance “lover” can feel and hear you as well – because that’s all you’re gonna get… As long as you pretend.
