"The psychology of deception is not a
mature field, and the neural mechanisms that underlie the ability to
intentionally suppress, distort, or
fabricate information are not yet well understood.
Consequently, if the
investment is correct in
stating that confidence in
a given technique will require
a solid theoretical base, then a significant
research investment into the underlying neuropsychological mechanisms of
deception must be made before any practical system for detecting deception can
be developed and employed." - Intelligence Science Board Study on Educing

Sun Tsu strongly advocated
the use of psychological
warfare as a force multiplier.
Sun Tsu wrote that:
"To capture the enemy's entire army is better than to
destroy it; to take intact a regiment, a company, or a squad is better than to
destroy them. For to win one hundred victories in one hundred battles is not
the acme of skill. To subdue
the enemy without fighting is the supreme excellence. Thus, what is of
supreme importance in war is to attack the enemy's strategy. Next best is to
disrupt his alliances by diplomacy. The
next best is to attack his army. And the worst policy is to attack cities."
Sun Tzu understood that given the opportunity,
an adversary will surrender to a
superior commander prior to conflict.

A network of "arrow riders" forged the
illusion of invincible numbers by
facilitating rapid troop maneuvers while targeting enemy messengers to prevent
enemy commanders from communicating.
Adolf Hitler rose to power by
exploiting the dissatisfaction of supporters of
the traditional left and right
wing parties, by dwelling on the failure of these parties to solve the
problems forged by the conditions imposed on Germany under the
Treaty of Versailles.
Adolf Hitler then presented
national socialism as the one movement
capable of uniting conservative nationalists with international socialists, the
professional classes with the working classes in the service of the nation.
The speeches he delivered urged
national pride and unity and placed
the blame for all of Germany's problems on 'others'.
oratory techniques of Adolf Hitler and use of
propaganda gave him a truly
hypnotic grip over the German masses.
Joseph Goebbels, minister of
propaganda, practiced the techniques of psychological operations both to unite
Germany and to intimidate their enemies.
The most well known innovative
use of psychological
warfare must be attributed to a radio broadcast by the British Broadcasting
Corporation, the BBC.
When the German invasion of England
seemed imminent, a regular BBC radio program, easily heard and often listened
to by the Germans, began a series of English language lessons for the invaders.
These broadcasts of course were presented in flawless German.
The British announcer stated the purpose of these broadcast like this:
..and so it will be best if you learn a few useful phrases in
English before visiting us. For your first lesson, we take 'DIE
KANAUEBERFAHRT'. The channel crossing." ... "Now, just repeat after me: 'DAS
BOOT SINKT.' The boat is sinking. The boat is sinking" ... "DAS WASSER IST

burn. IHR BRENNT. You are burning. SIR BRENNEN. They are burning."

spread by British agents on the continent that the British had perfected an
apparatus with which they were going to set fires in the Channel and on the
English beaches whenever Hitler launched his invasion.

Germans still believe them.

Even after the Allied
invasion came at Normandy,
Adolf Hitler would not allow for the
deployment of the 15th Panzer Army from the Pas de Calais.
Adolf Hitler was convinced that the
Normandy invasion was only a prelude
to the real invasion.
The 15th Panzer Army waited in vain at the Pas de

he sensed that the ideological abstractions and communist platitudes, which the
communist party had driven into the minds of its
audience were in reality barren.
Ideological abstractions and communist
platitudes did not have the emotional and spiritual impact necessary to fortify
the Russian people for their struggle
against the armies of Adolf Hitler.
Stalin systematically set about identifying his regime with the ancient
heritage and the accompanying archetypical
symbolism of "Mother Russia".

By this time radio broadcasts had become a major
means of passing propaganda and deceiving the target audience.

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 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

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.
