If you look around with eyes wide open, you can see our society steadily, and quickly, moving in the direction the global elites have planned for it to go. Despite protests by activists, the march toward a locked-down totalitarian world appears to be unstoppable. People vote against their own self interests. Opinions change to match the narrative of the day even when the facts clearly show that narrative is wrong. What is causing intelligent people to drop critical thinking and adopt a hive mentality?
Propaganda is essentially mind control, and it's been around as long as people have been communicating. But today it's more sophisticated, more prevalent, and more dangerous.
Only a few years ago there were hundreds of media companies including newspaper & magazine publishers, television & radio stations, and internet content producers. But the elites have been buying up and consolidating the media industry and today, it's said that as few as five multinational corporations now control almost all the news and entertainment we see.
Traditional media outlets have been hijacked and now publish propaganda that gently nudges us in the direction a handful of people want us to go. This propaganda is mixed in with their normal content, making it hard to spot as the mind-controlling poison that it is. If the elites want us to support Ukraine, they'll publish emotional stories about Ukrainian war victims and paint Russia as a barbaric nation of murderous criminals. The facts of the situation will be whatever position the elites have chosen to be factual. And the stories will be spread everywhere, even where you'd least expect it. You might find a "Stand with Ukraine" message on the cover of a fashion magazine, for example.
I checked out the websites of a few popular magazines to see which were involved in the spread of propaganda. Let's see what I found.
Wired magazine has traditionally been a tech oriented journal but recently they published a puff piece to bolster Bill Gates' reputation and help him sell his new book on pandemics. Gates isn't a scientist or a doctor, but he is a globalist who profits wildly from diseases and vaccines. Many people have called for Gates to be arrested for crimes against humanity, so Wired decided it better do a bit of public relations work for the beleaguered billionaire.
The article lacks substance but does paint Gates as a kindly old guy who just wants to save the world from the next pandemic and anyone who opposes his efforts must be crazy. Trust Mr Gates, no matter what he tells us to do. Ignore the part about him always being perfectly positioned to profit from whatever happens.
It's just good luck, don't you know.
Esquire used to be a respected men's style magazine that leaned toward the conservative side when it mentioned politics at all. It was the place young men went to learn how to tie a tie or match shoes to their new suit. Today it's a leftist rag that regularly pushes propaganda to young men instead of fashion tips.
A recent article by far-left extremist Charles P. Pierce tried to make the United States look like the "meth lab downstairs" from Canada, simply because we want to protect our Constitutional right to own guns. Gun ownership is what keeps tyrants like Canada's Justin Trudeau from stomping all over our rights and turning the US into a totalitarian prison. When it comes to freedom, Canada is now a lost cause, but Pierce has nothing to say about that. It doesn't suit his agenda or the agenda of the people who pay his bills: the globalists who want to disarm and control the world.
The most recent Esquire propaganda piece, also written by far-left extremist Charles P. Pierce, is a pile of trash that attempts to portray Donald Trump and Mike Pence as "authoritarian lunatics". When I saw the headline I thought for sure he was referring to Joe Biden, the most authoritarian President in my lifetime. But Biden's many sins aren't mentioned at all, because Pierce's article is meant to divert our attention away from the horrors we're currently enduring and make us feel thankful the orange man is no longer in power. It's the kind of propaganda that would make Joseph Goebbels proud.
Woman's Day magazine is also getting into the act. The magazine that used to teach housewives how to bake cakes and sew clothes is now grooming its readers into accepting the gay and trans pride movement.
I include this here not because of any opinion I may have about the issue, but rather to show how even a happy homemaker's magazine is now being used to push an agenda. But that's how propaganda is the most effective: when you see it everywhere, your mind begins to accept what it's promoting as normal.
Even Vanity Fair is now a propaganda outlet. Stories in the current issue include:
“Impeachable”: Fox News Pundits Hyperventilate Over Biden’s Gun-Reform Push.
GOP Rep. Spends House Hearing on Gun Violence Waving Around Guns Republicans Think Are More Important Than Children’s Lives.
Republican Congressman Blames Mass Shootings on Women Having Rights.
“He's A One Man Crime Wave”: Rep. Jamie Raskin Talks [about] Donald Trump.
There's not a single article on Vanity Fair's website that is critical of Joe Biden or any other Democrat. It's so bad, their page devoted to politics looks like it was written by the Democratic National Committee itself. But this is what passes as "journalism" today.
Remember when Rolling Stone magazine was about music? Not so much anymore. Now it's a Marxist mind control device, mixing stories about bands and concerts with radical leftist politics.
They publish nothing that is critical of the Biden regime but they twist every story they can find about conservatives to make us look like complete nutters. Anyone who reads this trash long enough is likely to have their political and social opinions gently steered to the left over time. And that's by design.
Inc. is a business magazine, or at least it used to be. Now it's yet another manipulator of public opinion, a bizarre blend of capitalist money-making tactics and leftist activism. Their current issue talks about the Uvalde TX school shooting and then tells readers, many of whom run large businesses, how they should respond to the tragedy.
"If you're in a state with a senator who is against gun control laws, ask individuals to call and ask that they support the Background Check Expansion Act."
"Your business can take a stand against gun violence, by checking what policies your clients have on selling firearms. Several financial institutions, such as Citibank, Bank of America, and BlackRock, all announced plans in 2018 to refuse to work with or fund gun manufacturers that sell military-style firearms for civilian use."
"Cut all ties to the NRA. While there are many reasons why a person may take the lives of others, easy access to guns certainly makes it easier--and the NRA is nothing if not in favor of improving that access."
They end the article by suggesting you donate money to a number of radical left-wing organizations that want to erode our Constitutional rights. This is the sort of anti-gun nonsense you'd expect to see in Mother Jones magazine, not a mainstream business magazine.
I could go on and on with examples of how mainstream publications manipulate us into supporting authoritarian and Marxist agendas. The skillful blending of content we desire with propaganda is a very powerful tool being used against us. And the same tactic is being used by radio DJ's, television shows, local and national news programs, and in movies. Even product advertisers are pushing social and political messages in their ads for jeans, tacos, and soft drinks. We're bombarded by this garbage all day, every day, and almost all of it promotes a radical left or authoritarian agenda.
When a handful of super-wealthy globalists control the media and have the power to spread their propaganda, hidden in plain sight, around the world to billions of people, they have the frightening ability to twist our thinking and lead us to create a dystopian future that enriches them but turns us into modern-day slaves.
So protect your mind. Turn off your TV. Ditch the mainstream media.
And always question everything, even if Woman's Day tells you it's true.
