How to Brainwash a Nation

How did we get here?

How did we get to a place where a president can blatantly lie us into a war - and get away with it?

How did we get to a place where crooks can wrap themselves in the flag and rob the country blind - and no one challenges them?

How did we get to a place where a country once known for innovation and generosity can degenerate into a front of corruption and mindless viciousness - and life goes on as if normal?

We've been "worked on" for decades...

There has always been propaganda and persuasion, but nowhere has the art of skillful lying been developed to the art form it's become under the corporation-controlled United States.
“What my father understood about groups is that they are manipulable and malleable. And that you can tap into their deepest desires or their deepest fears and use that to your own purposes.”

--Daughter of Edward Bernays, Sigmund Freud’s nephew and the architect of modern day PR.
Joseph Goebbels was his biggest fan.

In this seven-minute excerpt from "The Century of the Self" a four hour film series by Adam Curtis, you'll get a quick lesson about how sophisticated the mass brainwashing of the American people has been and how long it's been going on.
And it goes on because we let it go on.

Now, more than ever it's time to wake up America! We've been brainwashed! Throw your tv in the trash. Turn away from the billboards. Ignore the ads. You have a choice. Exercise it.

Don't work for a scumbag so you can buy things you don't need, or live in a house you never see, or let your children be raised by snake oil salesmen.

This is the most important struggle on earth - the struggle between truth and lies. Your mind is the prize. Whatever you do, don't let someone else control it.

i have to totally agree, from the outside it seems to me the america is concern about keeping people in fear, and mass consumption. the america test score for child is so low one could laugh, but actually its quite sad, to me it appear the media ther, has a role to dumb down the people, keep them addicted to pop culture, and more concern about how much plastic the women can put into ther bodies. people who follow this consumerism and pop culture to this degree only need ther news in a 10 sec sound bite or a big headline with a 3 sentence story. all of this i feel makes it easy to sell the sheeple the racsist wars, even ther elections are basically only elephant and jackass, one does not have much choice. this marketing of mass consuption and , ideal of live in plastic nation, obsessed by pop culture and movie star is claim to be the democracy, i for one do not want or need this immoral style of gov't.

Truthguys.org, you are are 1000% for president Bush? Do you not realize how corrupt, lying, and awful of a president he is? Let me guess, you think Clinton was a bad president and that he's involved in lots of corrupt stuff, so that validates president Bush.

Your page looks like deception. Your latest article about getting "Ben Laden" just shows that you are either still dialed into the mainstream media that is being generated to control you or you are just lying. Worse, you are still dialed into mainstream media from years ago that almost NO ONE believes anymore.

I feel that anyone who thinks president Bush is a valid president is either mentally ill, extremely ignorant, or corrupt.

Huh. I was scrolling backwards ( yeh. I'm a little slow at times ) and found we had blogged on the same premise.
There should be little confusion for one who remembers Carl Rove's stock-in-trade and has heard of the PAC.

what's up with this whole: "Clinton was bad!" response to criticism of Bush.

Ok. Whatever. Clinton was bad.

Now what in the world does that have to do with Bush?

TruthGuys.Org -

It's ironic that this whole blog is about American who are eager to swallow the government's total load, and how propaganda keeps them sucking. In short, it's about people like you. But I mean that in a most copassionate way.

first of all i have a question for you.. Hoe did you feel when after the towers fell on september 11 2001, how did you feel when you saw all those isamic people dancing in the street known afterward that Americans had died in the towers. I can tell you this i wanted revenge and the great president Bush did sonmething about it and he even called people like me off the Islamics here in america.Anotherthing you idot you have to remember that ot takes every member of congress to agree to go to war. I sure hope you got your wish because now we have a coward in the highest seat in the land who has terrorist ties who let alone lied one everything he promiced to do. have you ever hear a lier speak they studder because they are actually trying to find a word or words that can make people believe himisn't it funny how just about every leader who has ever lived in the world has lied except for one man he said it and did it he wrote a book about it and he swoons the masses the problem is Hitler killed the jews and well Obama will kill the nations. i can safly say i will not fallow him.

I also wanted to say that our oldest daughter bought us a new stove and it is just wonderful because even though it came with loads of instructions, it is very satisfying to use, just push buttons and mix up your recipe and place it in the oven and viola, wonderful, unburnt food...what a glorious feeling it gives me. It is a most magnificent jewel of our kitchen. It will be a pleasure to use when the holidays are upon us. My husband and I are very happy about our new acquisition!
