There is a lot to learn here on deliberate Machiavellian social engineering that is not taught even in the best universities in America (and the West), nor ever makes an appearance on CNN Headline News (and Time or Newsweek)!
What we are speaking of here, of engineering the consent of the masses to get them to love their own servitude, far transcends the corporate advertising and marketing techniques taught in MBA programs which were principally pioneered by Edward Bernays. These techniques of course also attempt to bypass the cognitive mind and target manipulating the subconscious mind directly to sell a product, a lifestyle, or an idea.
However, while most recognize that advertising is a multi-billion dollar business and accept it as a matter of for-profit corporate modernity, few are aware of an order of magnitude more resources being perversely spent by tax-exempt foundations, and the tax-payers (quite unbeknownst to themselves of course), on far more diabolical aspects of social engineering for
“getiing people to consent to what is happening to them. Well, it seems to me that the nature of the Ultimate Revolution with which we are now faced is precisely this: that we are in process of developing a whole series of techniques which will enable the controlling oligarchy who have always existed and presumably always will exist, to get people actually to love their servitude!” (please refer to Aldous Huxley quoted at the very beginning)
Advertising Age’s 2008 Marketer of the Year award to President Obama for his election campaign of the “Change” mantra, and the Nobel committee’s awarding him the 2009 Nobel Peace Prize testify to the empiricism of this observation. The American nation easily bought that fiction of “Change”, which was once again underscored by President Obama bombing Libya on the same day in 2011 that his predecessor bombed Iraq in 2003!
How did the American public buy that fiction? Once again, please refer back to the very beginning of this report and to Edward Bernays: “We are governed, our minds are molded, our tastes formed, our ideas suggested, largely by men we have never heard of.”
Only a tiny handful in America did not buy that fiction. Among those handful who defied the wisdom of the entire American nation and their controlled dissent chiefs, see: Not-Voting is a ‘YES’ vote to Reject a Corrupt System which thrives on the facade of Elections and Democracy! And Mr. Obama – The Post Modern Coup.
This ignorance and gullibility among the college-educated modern public is despite the fact that Western academe is at the forefront of the vast majority of behavior control and social engineering research studies, often funded by, or in collaboration with, Western intelligence, military, and private tax-exempt foundations such as the Rockefeller Foundation, Carnegie Endowment, and Ford Foundation. The highly compartmentalized nature of such research ensures that few students and professors in on the ground breaking studies into human behavior can ever glean the bigger picture towards which they work so diligently to respectively earn their Ph.D. and research funding! Those few who do comprehend are invariably engaged with empire in the largely unhidden orchestration of social engineering. Or, are quickly recruited as agents and assets of the Mighty Wurlitzer.
The Mighty Wurlitzer has no limit for its territory. The newsmedia, entertainment, academe, political parties, religious institutions, think-tanks, private foundations, government-funded organizations, and non-governmental organization (NGOs) alike, all house its agents and assets. And they each play their own tunes on their own specialized instruments under the supreme conduction of the Mighty Wurlitzer. The most notable among these is religion. Although the layman does not normally associate the pastor, rabbi, alim, mullah, swami, etc., with propaganda organs of state, but religion is in fact the most affected by the Mighty Wurlitzer – all throughout history. If we just reflect on the fact that more than three quarters of the world’s people espouse some faith, the easiest cognitive infiltration and behavior control is directly through faith. The report: Islam and Knowledge vs. Socialization ( http://tinyurl.com/Islam-Socialization ), and the following challenge to a pious Muslim cleric who issued a 600-page Fatwa on Terrorism in the Service of Empire ( http://tinyurl.com/Fatwa-Terrorism-Qadri ), indubitably illustrate this universal fact.
Today, fact and fiction have been merged to such an alarming degree with adept perception control that to be able to rationally separate them, to tell what is mere imagery of the Mighty Wurlitzer vs. the actual interconnected causal reality (cause and effect) of statecraft, can be as uncongenial to the cognitive mind as depicted by Plato for the prisoners bred in the underground cave since birth. The fact that the most brilliant minds remain unable to tell that 9/11 was an ‘Operation Canned Goods’ even ten years into its vile enactment while America descends into a police-state in presumed reaction to it, demonstrates that it is not the brain hardware which is malfunctioning, but the brain software!
The inculcation of belief in authority figures and “experts” has reached pandemic proportions in the West. Indoctrination is today perhaps the greatest public plague afflicting the mightiest superpower on earth, a direct consequence of “dumbing down” the public in the name of higher education to craft self-obsessed economic widgets, narrow specialists, and superficial generalists for the Technetronic Era. The continued success of the Mighty Wurlitzer in “persuading” the public to accept absurdities to get them ‘United We Stand’ singularly relies on, and feeds off, this aspect of modernity. See The Ivy League Morons Syndrome. Also see the deconstruction of Bernard de Mandeville’s “fable of the bees” in Response to ‘Why I’m leaving Harvard’ and in Preamble to Palestine: The Struggle Forward.
There is an undeniable categorical imperative before the Western peoples today. With the escalating belligerence towards Iran and the strategic dismantling of Pakistan palpably on the visible horizon, will the profoundly innocent of knowledge in the West allow themselves to be fooled once again into more criminal aggression upon civilian populations in the name of ‘War on Terror‘ ( http://tinyurl.com/what-is-war-on-terror )? See: Postscript ‘War on Terror’ is not about ‘Islamofascism’ – Please get with the real agenda you people! ( http://tinyurl.com/what-is-war-on-terror-NOT ).
Or, will the people choose to not be (willingly) deceived by the Mighty Wurlitzer’s many ruses at every level which continually justify the core axioms of “imperial mobilization” by way of deception? See Peoples’ Guilt and America’s Profound Shame ( http://prisonersofthecave.blogspot.com/2007/04/preface.html#Americas-Profound-Shame ).
It is precisely to invoke that acquiescence to premeditated fait accompli that Zbigniew Brzezinski self-servingly quoted in the opening pages of his seminal 1970 book Between Two Ages – America’s Role in the Technetronic Era, the following specious rationalization for the turmoil to be purposely inflicted upon the ‘lesser’ humanity. The diabolically fabricated Hegelian Dialectic as the means to usher in one-world government, and attributing that manufactured zeitgeist to just the nature of transformation between two ages (for which nothing could be done about since the human misery which it entailed was natural and inevitable):
“Human life is reduced to real suffering, to hell, only when two ages, two cultures and religions overlap. . . . There are times when a whole generation is caught in this way between two ages, two modes of life, with the consequence that it loses all power to understand itself and has no standard, no security, no simple acquiescence.” —HERMANN HESSE, Steppenwolf (pg. 7, book PDF).
As an establishmentarian hectoring hegemon, Brzezinski again invoked the same sort of self-serving rationalization to perpetuate American Primacy and Its Geostrategic Imperatives. He began his subsequent 1996 book The Grand Chessboard with the chauvinist sentence: “Hegemony is as old as mankind.” Thus, by the logic of it, making the rest of the book a recipe for the exercise of America’s uniquely unchallenged global power, and “especially its capacity for military intimidation”, as the most natural human legacy for any supremacist nation to pursue. Nothing could, or ought, to be done about that predatory instinct for organized violence since “Hegemony is as old as mankind.” And therefore, Brzezinski naturally proffered in his chauvinist conclusion, “In brief, the U.S. Policy goals must be un-apologetically twofold: to perpetuate America’s own dominant position for at least a generation and preferably longer,…” (Ibid., pg. 215; see Prisoners of the Cave, Chapter 1 ).
The report Of Ostriches and Rebels on The Hard Road to World Order, examines how that specious recipe book for America’s predatory primacy, as syntactically sugared war-mongering as it is, is itself only half the truth. As the Jewish proverb suggests, ‘a half truth is a full lie’. And as the Mighty Wurlitzer knows, in order to be effective, the lie is different at every level.
Contrary to Zbigniew Brzezinski’s erudite prose which underlies the many compositions of the Mighty Wurlitzer, as the generation caught between two ages on the Grand Chessboard, we, the bearers of Human life, have neither lost the power to understand, nor lost the power to overturn the advocated simple acquiescence to artificially induced transition period of real suffering. That understanding, and overturning, is the raison d’être for this document.
