contradictory propaganda

"Many of the nation's leading public-relations experts have  been  indoctrinating  themselves  in  the lore of psychiatry and the social sciences in order to increase skill  at  engineering  consent  to  their propositions."

Vance Packard 1957

1990 United States Ambassador, April C. Glaspie directly to Saddam Hussein, ''We have no opinion on the Arab-Arab conflicts, like your border disagreement with Kuwait."

''We were reluctant to draw a line in the sand,'' a senior Administration official said. ''I can't see the American public supporting the deployment of troops over a dispute over 20 miles of desert territory and it is not clear that the local countries would have supported that kind of commitment. The basic principle is not to make threats you can't deliver on. That was one reason there was a certain degree of hedging on what was said. The crucial factor in determining the American response was not the reality but the extent of the invasion.''

"Secretary of Defense Dick Cheney, for example, was quoted as telling journalists at a press breakfast on July 19 that the American commitment made during the Iran-Iraq War to come to Kuwait's defense if it were attacked was still valid. The same point was also made by Paul Wolfowitz, Undersecretary of Defense for Policy, at a private luncheon with Arab ambassadors." - By Elaine Sciolino With Michael R. Gordon, US Gave Iraq Little Reason Not to Mount Kuwait Assault, NYT, 11/23/1990

"When a ponerogenic process encompasses a society's entire ruling class, or nation, or when opposition from normal people is stifled - as a result of the mass character of the phenomenon, or by using spellbinding means and physical compulsion, including censorship - we are dealing with a macrosocial ponerologic phenomenon." - Andrew M.

Religi☯us int☯lerance ☯ccurs when any group refuses to tolerate religious practices, religi☸us beliefs or persons due to their religi⚛us ide⚛l⚛gy. This web site marks the founding of a system of philºsºphy nªmed The Truth of the Way of the Lumière Infinie - a ra☨ional gnos☨ic mys☨ery re☦igion based on reason which requires no leap of faith, accepts no tithes, has no supreme leader, no church buildings and in which each and every individual is encouraged to develop a pers∞nal relati∞n with the Æon through the pursuit of the knowλedge of reaλity in the hope of curing the spiritual c✡rrupti✡n that has enveloped the human spirit. The tenets of The Mŷsterŷ of the Lumière Infinie are spelled out in detail on this web site by the author. Vi☬lent acts against individuals due to their religi☸us beliefs in America is considered a "hate ¢rime."

This web site in no way c☬nd☬nes vi☬lence. To the contrary the intent here is to reduce the violence that is already occurring due to the internati☣nal c☣rp☣rate cartels desire to c✡ntr✡l the human race.

Civilization is based on coöperation. Coöperation with bi☣hazards of a gun.

American social mores and values have declined precipitously over the last century as the corrupt international cartel has garnered more and more power. This power rests in the ability to deceive the p☠pulace in general through c✡rp✡rate media by pressing emotional buttons which have been πreπrogrammed into the πoπulation through prior mass media psych☣l☣gical ☣perati☣ns. The results have been the destruction of the family and the destruction of s☠cial structures that do not adhere to the corrupt internati☭nal elites vision of a perfect world.
