Unplug the Signal:
The Truth Will Not Be Televised
A flow of information is constantly streaming from the television
set; a bombardment of words and pictures. The speed at which this
information is communicated makes it easy for the signal to take
control, switching the viewer's brain to stand-by as information
is absorbed without analysis or question. Today the television's
constant signal shapes the conclusions of the masses and produces
the collective norm. The signal prescribes what is news and what
is truth through the words of so-called experts and authorities,
gelding the consciousness and independent thoughts of those subjected
to it. Through television, the masses can be made to accept the
most monstrous distortions of reality. The signal is a chill wind
of continuous oppression over the minds of the masses. It controls
the management of society and culture, creating uniformity across
The fuel for this vehicle of mass deception is a technique known
as perception management where an array of psychological techniques
are used to alter the truth, leading the viewer to a desired conclusion.
Some call this spin or propaganda while others know it as lying.
According to Joseph Goebbels, Propaganda Minister for Adolph Hitler,
"If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people
will eventually come to believe it... It thus becomes vitally
important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent,
for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension,
the truth is the greatest enemy of the State." Most of what
can be found on the nightly news is nothing but advertisements
selling more government and a false reality that benefits only
those in control. Television is the dictator of information; newspaper
and radio are the whisper campaign of the television's message.
It is expected that Americans will consistently prescribe to
the doctrine of the television. It is subtly communicated that
one should stay within the collective and never challenge the
message, for doing so may be considered an aggression towards
culture. The message is, "Be a good consumer; always obey
authority; you know nothing; listen only to experts; be content
and never question or express new ideas." This signal is
being broadcast across millions of screens, indoctrinating the
unconscious minds of those who choose this as their only reality.
Self-censorship occurs when these individuals become so deeply
indoctrinated that they are afraid to discuss any information
outside the paradigm of television-created culture; they police
their thoughts to ensure they won't conflict with this culture.
Sadly, many people's reality today does not allow any outside
information to process, instead it is written off as conspiracy
or blatant lies. Our consciousness has been destroyed so much
that fiction has become reality. An entire lifestyle of poisonous
foods, pharmaceuticals, and fluoridated water are accepted as
safe and sold to us at the cost of our health and well being.
Those of the establishment are using the incredibly powerful
weapon of mass psychology as a method of controlling the minds
of the masses and altering the behavior of individuals. Edward
Bernays, a pioneer in the field of public relations in the 20th
century, applied Sigmund Freud's theory of psychoanalysis to manipulate
the masses by engineering consent. According to Bernays, "If
we understand the mechanism and motives of the group mind, it
is now possible to control and regiment the masses according to
our will without them knowing it." Advertisers and psychologists
of the billion dollar culture creation industry manufacture trends
through the proliferation of insecurities; and manipulating desires
and emotions. These concepts are also employed to control how
individuals think about politics, as well as the possibilities
and limitations within society. Those welding power within our
streams of mass communication market their plans into each generation
as individuals adopt specific ways of thinking and never suspect
that all the major events and trends within their lifetime are
actually planned by an elite few before they are even born. In
our society today, culture is created from the top down. Virtually
all forms of culture are created by the ruling class to build
a false sense of reality, ensure social compliance, and control
the future course of cultural evolution.
Predictive programming is a tool used by the establishment to
acclimate the public to new ideas, trends, beliefs, and threats.
It is used through television by including certain situations
or ideas within the plots of many fictional shows, familiarizing
the viewer with these concepts no matter what they may be watching.
When similar situations occur or like ideas are circulated in
the world we think that these particular things are quite natural
for we have unknowingly been made familiar with them through television.
By viewing nearly any popular show on television, one can see
the same propaganda that will be aired on the nightly news. Propaganda
on a wide array of subjects has been interwoven into a great number
of television shows. Just a few of these subjects include global
warming, vaccinations, torture, terrorism, national security,
the militarization of police, and the degradation of the family
unit. Through predictive programming, television shapes culture
and prevents individuals from asking questions.
Crisis' are created on a daily basis and broadcast across the
airwaves to keep individuals in a state of panic and fear. Whether
it be the threat of a pandemic or terrorism, the constant state
of crisis has created a form of mental illness as we are slowly
acclimated into an age of crisis. By using Hegelian dialectic,
the television promotes the problem, guides our reaction, and
presents the solution. The problem of terrorism was exclaimed,
a strong emotional response was evoked, and it was stated that
our rights need be sacrificed in order to protect us from the
threat. We've lost personal sovereignty under the guise of terrorism;
we're stopped and searched; we're watched by cameras as we go
about our lives; and we're encouraged to spy on our neighbors.
We have been trained to accept the life of a prisoner.
America is in a state of enlightened despotism where most individuals
live only to satisfy selfish inner desires and remain ignorant
of the state of the world around them. In most public places one
can find a television transmitting propaganda around the clock
ensuring the masses remain focused on trivial matters. From birth
we take the world as its presented on television. We don't
question it and any serious criticism of TV is becoming psychologically
impossible in society. Who would suspect getting born into a world
where everything around you is a continuous lie? The youth of
today are convinced that the experts and personalities on television
are the authority of credible information while parents and older
generations are foolish with dated ideas. Children are conditioned
to disconnect from what is truly important to their well being
and instead focus on mindless trivia, sports, celebrity gossip,
and buying an array of material things. They invest their psychological
worth in fantasy characters on television while ignoring or even
scorning individuals contributing to the betterment of humanity.
They are discouraged from getting involved in their local community
and often lack the ability to think independently or to resist
corruption. As their children's minds are molded by television,
there is barely a murmur from the public.
For over half a century, our society has lived under this signal
of mental programming and conditioning. The message is clear:
don't be a leader, don't engage in critical thinking, and dont
care about the people in your life. Until individuals become aware
of the current information war, our standard of living and our
liberties will continue to be degraded and we will continue to
lose communities and meaningful relationships between people.
Currently, pockets of resistance are beginning to spring up everywhere
as some unplug the signal and regain control of their own thoughts.
Informed individuals are canceling their cable and satellite subscriptions
and instead spending time with their families and children while
participating in meaningful experiences. They are seeking alternative
news sources. They are reading about those who weld incredible
influence over culture like Edward Bernays, Zbigniew Brzezinski,
Charles Galton Darwin, Plato, Bertrand Russell, and Aldous Huxley.
However, it is a continuous battle to educate the masses for the
television remains our greatest threat to individual sovereignty
and the largest obstacle to becoming a truly informed individual.
Fortunately, unplugging from the signal is easy. The television
can simply be turned off. Through doing so, you may realize nearly
our entire world is now a hoax; things once known as truth are
fake. We have been trained like dogs to be obedient to our television;
our master has had our minds on a tight leash. Let us never forget
the truth will not be televised.
