Corporate executives are guilty of
securities fraud if they
misrepresent the truth about their corporation's financial
condition."Every crisis has three Vs: the
villain and the
vindicator. We want to know
who to like,
who to believe and
who to hate. That's how the
its stories related to crises.
A crisis is resolved when you muddy the rigid roles of these
three types of characters or when you reverse the roles.
So the goal of PR person is
to enact that switch." - Eric Dezenhall
Dezenhall believes that the
best strategy is to rarely, if ever, admit guilt and to
meet each accusation
with a counter attack.
In the middle of a public relations crisis,
companies pay consultants anywhere from $50,000 and up, depending on how long
and how many people are deployed.
A pre-crisis preparation session costs at least $25,000.
Still, says Eric Dezenhall, who has represented such companies as Procter & Gamble, ExxonMobil,
Eli Lilly and
Electric, "the amount of money spent on crisis management is a drop in
the bucket compared to what you might lose."

The Lehman design, titled "Horizontal Escalation" in defense circles, outlines a
series of provocations against the USSR.
Lehman is quoted as saying,
"He who gets the signal to fire first in the North Pacific will enjoy a
tremendous tactical advantage.
This region . . . is most probably where
we shall witness confrontation with the Soviet Union." -
"What's worrisome and even more expensive, however, are the
strategic missions now assigned to the greatly enlarged surface fleet.
Secretary of the Navy John F. Lehman is emphasizing the use of aircraft
carriers and submarines to undertake offensive strikes in Soviet waters.
In a crisis, the Navy is to move close to Soviet shores, bottle up the
Soviet fleet, sink the fleet and, using planes and missiles, destroy the Soviet
fleet's logistical ''train'' deep in Soviet territory.
In addition, if
Moscow makes a serious military move in an area where it has ''local
superiority,'' our Navy plans to ferret out other Soviet ''blue water assets''
and obliterate them.
It's called ''horizontal escalation.'' - James A.

This website defines a
new perspective with which to engage reality to which its author adheres. The
author feels that the falsification of reality outside personal experience has
forged a populace unable to discern propaganda
from reality and that this has been done purposefully by an international
corporate cartel through their agents who wish to foist a corrupt version of
reality on the human race. Religious intolerance occurs
when any group refuses to tolerate religious practices, religious beliefs or
persons due to their religious ideology. This web site marks the founding of a
system of philosophy named The Truth of the Way of the Lumière Infinie -
a rational gnostic mystery religion 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 personal relation
with the Creator and Sustainer through the pursuit of the knowledge of reality
in the hope of curing the spiritual corruption that has enveloped the human
spirit. The tenets of The Truth of the Way of the Lumière Infinie are
spelled out in detail on this web site by the author. Violent acts against
individuals due to their religious beliefs in America is considered a "hate
This web site in no way condones violence. To the contrary the
intent here is to reduce the violence that is already occurring due to the
international corporate cartels desire to control the human race. The
international corporate cartel already
controls the world economic system, corporate media worldwide, the global
industrial military entertainment complex and is responsible for the collapse
of morals, the elevation of self-centered
behavior and the destruction of global ecosystems. Civilization is based on
coöperation. Coöperation does not occur at the point of a
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 populace in general
through corporate media by pressing emotional buttons which have been
preprogrammed into the population through prior mass media psychological
operations. The results have been the destruction of the family and the
destruction of social structures that do not adhere to the corrupt
international elites vision of a perfect
world. Through distraction and coercion the direction of thought of the
bulk of the population has been directed toward solutions proposed by the
corrupt international elite that further consolidates their power and which
further their purposes.
