The new weapon was the movies.


joel stein opens his loud mouth

"Research has shown that movies have a powerful influence on the behavior of children and teenagers. That's why corporations spend money for product placement in films to market their sneakers, sunglasses and soft drinks." - Jay A. Winsten, Harvard School of Public Health

"It is an odd dilemma. Film is The Art Form of the 20th century, undeniably. As Lenin said, 'the most powerful tool ever invented to influence the mind of man'. Yet more and more, we see films made that diminish the American experience and sometimes trash it completely." - Charlton Heston

"Why does every movie have to appeal to the mindless, the ill-informed, the indifferent and the violent? Our culture has been dumbed down enough by the tasteless, witless character of television sitcoms; by the feel good, don't worry, touchy feely character of television news; by the mind numbing idiocy of the right wing talk shows and a value system that celebrates consumerism above everything else in life." - Gerald E. Kerns

"It hardly needs re-stating that Talmudwood is driven by the desire for dollars rather than artistic integrity. As such, cinema is open to product placement in a variety of forms, from toys, to cars, to cigarettes, and even state-of-the art weaponry hence the "special thanks" to Boeing in the credits of Iron Man (2008)." - Matthew Alford 02/09



lies to our face


1907 "Should you ever seek the source of the moving pictures of the vaudeville theater you will learn that the comic, the tragic, the fantastic, the mystic scenes so swiftly enacted in photographic pantomime are not real but feigned." - Moving Picture World

1917 Before classical continuity emerged the traditional approach to shooting a scene was the tableau technique reminiscent of theatrical presentations. Action was played out in a full shot from an audience standpoint, using staging to vary the composition and express dramatic relationships. At this time the consolidation of Talmudwood's characteristic approach to visual storytelling occurs.

When there was cutting within the tableau setup, it usually consisted of inserted close-ups of important details, especially printed matter, like a letter or telegram. Occasionally the close-up of an actor could be inserted, usually filmed from the same angle as the master shot. The tableau approach was more prominent in scenes taking place in interiors; filmmakers were freer about cutting action occurring outdoors. The master shot was typically closer and more tightly organized than a scene on the stage would be. The tableau approach was the default of Talmudwood filmmaking through the early 1910s.

Watch people filing silently out of a movie theater, their eyes vacant, their faces slack. They look and act stoned. One must reemerge after being submerged this way in hyperreality.

Art was said to provide ekstasis, which in Greek means "letting us stand outside ourselves," presumably to lend us perspective.

Everyone desire from personal experience that entertainment usually provides just the opposite: intertenere , pulling us into ourselves thus denying us perspective.

Harvard psychology professor Hugo Munsterberg, writing of this almost mesmerizing effect, cited reports that "sensory hallucinations and illusions have crept in; neurasthenic individuals are especially inclined to experience touch or temperature or smell or sound impressions from what they see on the screen. The associations become vivid as realities, because the mind is completely engrossed in the moving pictures."

Movies have interpenetrated reality in a way no other art or entertainment has, in part because as a photographic medium they were fashioned from the matter of reality. Early audiences reportedly would shrink as a train on-screen pulled into a station, fearing that it would burst through and run them over. They had to be constantly reminded that what they were seeing was only an illusion.


What makes the movies appear even more real, and what makes them even more powerful in their effect, is how the audience mentally processed them.

As Hugo Munsterberg noted, the movies played in our heads and seemed to replicate our own consciousness. Conspiring with the dark, they cast a spell that lulled one from his own reality into theirs until the two merged.

This was precisely what concerned some of its more astute critics. They realized that the movies seemed to cross the line that seperated reality from imagination.

"Jane Addams, the social reformer and director of Chicago's Hull House community center, the movie theater was a "veritable house of dreams," which was "infinitely more real than the noisy streets and crowded factories." - Neil Gabler

Over time, after tens of millions had watched thousands of motion pictures, the movies gradually began occupying the common imagination like an expeditionary force, not only filling heads with models to appropriate but imbuing them with an even more profound sense than anyone in the nineteenth century could possibly have had of how important appearances were in producing just the desired effect.

"Since audiences have no way of distinguishing between what is real and what is fabricated, they are asked to swallow the whole sugar-coated confection in one gulp. In the real world a bald faced lie is easy to identify, but half truths are more insidious." - Preston Lerner

This web site is not a commercial web site and is presented for educational purposes only.




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 created 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 Life - a rational 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 Life 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 crime."

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 cooperation. Cooperation does not occur at the point 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 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.
