MEDIA IS A DRUG
There was a song titled ‘Love is a Drug’. I don’t know who recorded it, I never even once heard it and I don’t care who released it and I have no desire to be told who made it and I don’t need to listen to it. But the title is true. Love IS a drug and it’s a drug that can cause people to do things they never would consider doing if they weren’t under the influence of it.
There are MANY types of drugs. Legal and illegal. Some legal drugs can be life saving and totally beneficial. Some legal drugs can be life saving but have serious side effects.
The illegal drugs are ALL harmful. They create a nonexistent reality in the user. They can create euphoria. They can create the feeling of invincible immortality. They can make the user feel like they can keep going forever without stopping. There are almost as many feelings to be derived from the use of illegal drugs as there are illegal drugs to be taken. But they will all kill the user. Some more quickly than others, but they all will cause death eventually. And with many addicts it is a very pain filled death.
The MEDIA is a drug that falls into the same category as ‘love’. Not physically taken but absorbed by the mind. And LIKE ‘love’ it can cause people to do what is totally opposite of logic and reason. It can cause the victims to think irrationally or as in the case of MILLIONS of Americans it can cause them to not think at all.
At one time in America’s history the printed Media was a necessity. It was the only way that Americans were able to know what was taking place around them and in other parts of the country. Most of the time the news they received via the printed Media was already old news because the information that was gathered and published was acquired only from travelers. Later, when the telegraph was invented, news reached people much quicker but it was only in short and to the point sentences. But only the most important news was telegraphed.
Naturally because it was THEIR publication the editors of those newspapers would quite often voice their own opinions on topics, and the public being independent self thinkers at that time in America’s history would either agree or disagree with those opinions put forth. NO ONE took their direction in life from the printed Media. It was only regarded as an information source.
Then came the invention of radio. It was almost a magical device that could broadcast over vast distances and news could be broadcasted almost as fast as anything was becoming news. To make that particular media even more awe inspiring and mentally captivating, music began to be broadcasted and stories began to be read over the radio. Then stories were written and produced specifically for radio complete with sound effects to further captivate the minds of the listeners.
Around this same time in the Los Angeles area of California a new media was about to spring up. A media that would ultimately grow to be extremely mind captivating and influential. A media that would no longer require people to visualize a story because it was all right there for them to see. The motion picture media. But that media in itself was not to become the ultimate media.
In the late 1940’s Television was introduced to America. Only in the major cities at first, but by the mid 1950’s it was a media that was coast to coast with around 350 television broadcast stations, with more appearing every year. NOW Americans could stay in their own homes and be entertained as well as informed of local, national and world events that were occurring. Children’s shows and family shows were the first to be widely broadcasted. But THEN came the syndicated television network newscasts and new ‘media stars’ were created like Walter Cronkite who became known as the “Most Trusted Man in America” along with Edward R. Murrow and others who brought the ‘personal interview’ format into the public arena. A format that would later be blended into the newscasts themselves.
With the coming of television came the going of individual thought. More and more people began to take their personal direction in life from those in this great and powerful new media known as television. And they did this because television created for the people the ‘illusion’ that those appearing on those television news programs were far more intelligent than the viewers themselves. Because they appeared on those massive silver screens, people began to actually idolize movie stars, and because they appeared in their own homes every night via the television set, people began to idolize the network newscasters and hang on their every word, accepting whatever they said as gospel. It did not take long for those who owned this massively powerful new media known as television to realize that if they made their newscasts into full fledged productions they could actually not only INFLUENCE the thought process of an entire nation but they could actually DICTATE what those thought processes were to be. And they succeeded.
Americans are literally ADDICTED to the media now. Even MORE addicted to it than junkies and alcoholics are to THEIR particular drugs. In fact junkies and drunks are ALSO addicted to the televised media. Americans can no longer even consider functioning without the televised media. It controls their very existence.
It was the televised media that successfully convinced Americans that there were only two political parties that were worth being considered for public office. It was the televised media that successfully influenced all national elections from 1960 on up. It was the televised media that quelled the populace after every restriction placed upon the American people by these two parties. It was the televised media that quelled the populace with every new bureaucracy that was created by these two parties. It was the televised media that successfully convinced the American people that the centralizing of America’s public education system under one group was a good thing. Now the American public education system has been converted into a nationwide Marxist socialist indoctrination system where children are taught that the founders of America were radicals and that the Constitution they established is wrong and that the STATE is the giver of all things and people are to look up to and be subservient to the state. It was the televised media that refused to report illegalities committed by these two parties. It was the televised media that helped to destroy the reputations of people who opposed what those two parties were doing to this nation. It was the televised media that quelled the populace when massive steps were taken by these two parties to convert this nation to a totalitarian state. It is the televised media that works tirelessly to dissolve America’s constitution. It is the televised media that continually projects the huge amounts of money that are spent, and need to be spent by either side of what is now in reality America’s actual ONE major political party, because those who own and control what used to be two publicly separate parties no longer have any hesitation of showing their absolute control. But in reality those high costs are merely an illusion of what was spent because those who own the party put up the money and then pay that money to the media that they ALSO own for political advertising. So they are taking money from one pocket, holding it up for all to see and then placing it back in their other pocket. Their show however is successful because it keeps the people from thinking that they can break free of what is now America’s privately owned and controlled government.
Americans are totally and completely addicted to the media drug and even though some claim they are not (as many addicts do who are in denial), they will continue to do only what the media tells them to do. They will think only what the media tells them to think.
PRIME EXAMPLE: Many Americans are still patriotic and loyal to this nation and the Constitution that established it. But the media has very successfully fitted them with the psychological yoke of servitude to the privately owned and controlled party. They ALL know of ALL the problems existing in this country, but when you ask them HOW can these problems be fixed, they only have ONE universal answer and that is … to put more people from the right side of the party into office. If you tell them that is the WRONG thing to do, then what you will always hear back from them is … if you DON’T vote for the right side of the party you are WASTING your vote. REALLY?
Ask people to name EVEN ONE political evil over the past 100 years that was not placed upon the American people by either side of what in reality is now America’s actual ONE major political party. NAME EVEN ONE. They can’t give you an answer.
Ask people what party created the FED? A private group that was given absolute control over America’s financial structure. THEN ask them what party repealed it?
Ask them what party created the permanent and ever increasing welfare system in America? Then ask them what party repealed it?
Ask them what party centralized America’s public education system into America’s Marxist/socialist indoctrination system? Then ask them what party repealed it?
Ask them what party absolutely refused to protect America’s southern border and has allowed quite probably 30 MILLION illegal entrants into this country? Then ask them what party closed that border?
Ask them what party created the EPA, a bureaucracy setup primarily to stifle American business and the economy along with it? Then ask them what party repealed it?
Ask them what party created the American Gestapo aka the DHS? Then ask them what party repealed it?
Ask them what party created the NDAA? Then ask them what party repealed it?
Ask them what party destroyed the American healthcare system? Then ask them what party repealed it?
THEN ask them … is not voting for the same group that is deliberately destroying America and converting it to a totalitarian state the same as personally helping to destroy your own country? They have no answer other than to say, we need to vote more people in from the right side of the party.
The media has successfully ignored the existence of many different political parties in America. Their purpose was to keep people focused ONLY upon both sides of what in reality is now America’s actual ONE major political party. If they even do mention another party they will refer to it as a “fringe group”.
Thomas Jefferson along with many of the other founders of this nation vehemently WARNED Americans to NEVER align themselves with privately created political parties, because to do so would be to guarantee our own destruction. HE and THEY were ABSOLUTELY CORRECT. The founders wanted this nation to be governed by the people themselves. Americans abandoned that idea.
BUT … if for no more than FOUR NATIONAL ELECTIONS IN A ROW Americans would pick ANY and ALL already established political party and vote FOR ALL OF THEM and NOT for either side of the controlling party, so very much of the damage that was inflicted upon this nation by America’s owners could be halted and even reversed. After that period of time if Americans still want to destroy their own country, then they should just go ahead and do it.
But the media drug has been so thoroughly embedded into the psyche of all America that ALL that you will ever hear from people is … “we MUST vote for the party …. We MUST vote for the party … we MUST vote for the party”.
Yet the American people somehow seem to take offense at being labeled … sheeple.
