The Shady Past of The Rockefeller Family and Its Haunting Effect on the World

Flickr-Monopoly-Mark-Strozier

Perhaps you have heard of the Rockefellers, and the often romantic tale told of the riches that accompany their mark on Americana. John Davidson Rockefeller, (1839-1937) the patriarch of the family, was the first billionaire in the United States. Often we are told he lived the American dream, pulling himself up by his boot straps and working tirelessly to build his family’s wealth. The truth that has come out over the years, however, is that Rockefeller was a Nazi sympathizer and fascist wealth gatherer who used others for his own whims.

Rockefeller amassed his wealth almost entirely with a global strong hold on oil production – a habit common to companies that rape foreign soil and instigate war, and are still practicing today. He also dabbled in steel, railroads and banking, establishing monopolies in the industries he pursued. His grandfather was a snake-oil salesman who sold ‘cancer’ cures to the public, mostly women, as he traveled across the United States, calling himself, ‘the celebrated Dr. Livingston.’ There’s nothing like good press and propaganda to make a decent living. The same man was also indicted for rape, but never formally charged.

The Rockefeller duplicity of character and complete disregard for public health have carried into almost every aspect of modern corporatism. We no longer make laws based on the well being of the public at large. Corporations are allowed to dump toxins like oil into oceans, and are free to grow and market GM foods when they are proven to cause cancer, stop organ functioning and cause infertility. Banking systems, via the Federal Reserve, and other fluffy brokerage houses are given carte blanch to rape us, by gambling away our money, sucking down an ever-expanding barrel of cash through tax dollars, and shoving huge debts off onto the people of multiple countries. We are also sold ‘cancer’ cures in the form of chemo and radiation when they are being proven to cause death in many cases while definitely supporting a booming industry monopolized by a small handful of pharmaceutical companies.

We’ve been sold snake oil, in the very least, and it appears more likely that we are part of a greater plan, which the Nazis first introduced pre-WWII, and which the Rockefellers sympathized withEugenics, or population cleansing and control are happening whether you want to use that specific terminology or not.

In the 1900s, a group of Californians exported the idea of Eugenics, to Nazi Germany. It became the third state to instate laws that supported cleansing for a ‘master race.’ Ultimately, in California, and other states, eugenics practitioners coercively sterilized some 60,000 Americans, barred the marriage of thousands, forcibly segregated thousands in “colonies,” and persecuted untold numbers in ways we are just learning about. (hnn.us)

With chemtrails, antibiotic-induced super bugs, hormone laden farm animals, super weeds and people like Dr. Oz saying that ‘organic food is elitist’ in a recent Time magazine article, it starts to make you wonder.

Joseph Pulitzer is digging deeper into the Rockefeller past and if nothing else, it points to our ‘roots’ in corporate wealth in ways that many of us have never imagined were possible. The legacy of the Rockefeller family has impacted our country but also the global culture in very real ways.

America is based on lies and usury at best, and pure evil at worst when you consider the mindset of those who would sterilize unsuspecting women. So what can we do to take back our country? Corporate capitalism and ‘inverted totalitarianism’ obviously haven’t worked. Are there better ways for people to survive in today’s toxic world?

Gift economies have been suggested, with a radical belief that the more you give, the more you get. This type of economy would also drive people to give form their true passions, instead of being motivated purely by greed. Others have suggested returning to a simpler way of life, choosing to purchase fewer things, and invest more in people and experiences. Ultimately it will have to be a system of governance that honors both the individual and the whole, with a truly integrated benevolence that honors both. Communism only honors the grand ideas of an ‘all-seeing’ or ‘all-knowing’ leader, subsuming the individual completely into complete oblivion. Capitalism is all self-centered. A new world will have to look hard and cold at our past mistakes, and take into account the needs of both the microcosmic part and the macrocosmic whole.

If you have suggestions on how to organize society to avoid the greed that has currently compromised the entire global parade, please suggest them below.

Understanding and Dismantling the Global Control System

I first learned about Max Igan watching his documentary The Awakening (http://youtu.be/7ZW1BLbs1D4). Like the documentary Kymatica, I was impressed with the knowledge of the author and especially his positive solution based message. It didn’t leave me with the fear emotion, which always raises a red flag and I feel is not a good way to get these kinds of messages out. Once we’re aware that yes, we’re being screwed big time, then we need answers and solutions. I admire Max Igan for providing a positive message in his many writings and videos.
WIKI-Matrix-01
By Max Igan. Because the worth or value of people in our society is very much based on their economic or social standing (according to the parameters of this society), we tend to readily discard people below us on the social ladder – because we deem them to be of less worth or value than people who have substantial financial interests in the world. This is a programmed, fictional reality – people are quite literally trained to think this way. This is one of the main objectives of the modern education system. The education system has become more and more business-oriented as generations have gone by, and this makes it possible for sections of society to be discarded, one rung at a time, while the people above them on the social ladder never really believe that it could happen to them. However the entire system is designed to slowly move up the social ladder until it has discarded everybody except those who issue the currency. This will effectively create a two-tiered society whereby we will have a ruling elite and a working class.

There are many people who are quite well-off in the world at the moment who believe that they will be safe from this system, but ultimately they won’t. Eventually it will get that high on the social ladder, that everybody who does not control the money supply will be under the control of those who do.

We the people, should we choose to step into our power, can prevent all of this from happening; because it’s all happening due to fictional rules that public trustees have written on paper. It is important for people to bear in mind the uncomfortable truth that if we do not choose to step into our power then the situation just described will occur, because it is the only possible outcome of this money system. This is why this money system has been put in place, to create the two-tiered society separated only by those who perceive they have power between the ‘elite’ and the working class. These people with perceived power will be the police and government officials who sit in the middle. These people will be given small tokens of power to make them feel as though they have authority over people, which of course will serve to give them the confidence they need to oppress the working class.

If you take everybody’s power away from them, reduce people to the point where they are quite literally abject slaves without their knowledge and you start giving small tokens of power to people within the group, then their egos will always take over & they’ll start throwing their weight around. If you watch which people throw their weight around the heaviest, you find the sociopaths within the crowd. Those are the ones that the ‘elite’ elevate to positions of authority, because they know that they have no empathy, and that they are quite happy to harvest energy from the population around them.

By taking people’s inherent power and value from them, you effectively disconnect them from the true energy source of the universe, and the most ready source of energy for these people then becomes the people around them – and that’s where they harvest their energy. This is why people who are so disconnected make the best ‘leaders’ for this system.

The plan is to create a two-tiered society whereby the only separation between the two will be the controlling hand which controls the debt-slaves, all of whom are controlled and do the bidding of those who issue the paper. This process is going to be achieved and is in fact well under way. It is occurring all due to the parameters of a UN directive known as Agenda 21. When looking at Agenda 21, many people understand that it is a depopulation programme; it is a programme designed to corral humankind into manageable portions which will be achieved by placing them within controlled sections of population (concentrated areas), and to ‘return the Earth to nature’ (or at least that’s how it is presented to the world). However, they are not quite sure how it is going to be carried out. The reality is that Agenda 21 is being implemented right now, in a very subtle manner, using means which most people would consider to be completely unrelated, and yet which are all connected.

To see these connections, it is extremely important for people to realize that the money system – money itself – is the glue that is used to hold this control mechanism together. Money connects everything together and is the catalyst for the whole thing. When you look at the system of commerce that has been superimposed over our societies, and how it slowly moves up the rungs of the social ladder, where people are discarded according to their economic worth, you begin to see how the depopulation plan is coming into effect. When looking at concentrated pockets of civilization and ‘returning the Earth to nature’, one might ask, “How is this to be achieved?” Since many people live in rural areas. Well what happens if you destroy the ground-water in rural areas? People who do live in rural areas, who run farms, simply cannot stay there anymore. It simply doesn’t become viable to ship water in all the time. Not to mention the fact that the water that is coming out of the ground is now toxic. Enter coal seam gas mining, or fracking.

We don’t actually need gas as an energy source; there are other means of energy we could have. The Serbian scientist Nikola Tesla was going to give the whole world free energy back at the turn of the last century, and his financers wouldn’t allow him to do it because they realized they were not able to meter his energy device, and so therefore there was no economic gain in doing so. Many of the problems we face as a society, and many of the most pollutive industries on the planet, exist solely to meet our energy needs. Indeed it is the demand for energy which perpetuates these industries, and it is these industries which keep many people working. The demand for energy is one of the things that makes the modern world go round, and if people were to obtain access to free energy then it would most certainly free them from debt-slavery.

We don’t need to be harvesting coal seam gas in order to meet our energy needs – there are far better ways of doing things. So, what is the real purpose of coal seam gas? The only guaranteed outcome from having a gas well somewhere is that it is going to pollute the ground water below the gas well. This can be seen happening everywhere where gas wells have been. Methane is coming up in streams, tap-water has been catching fire and wells are being polluted. This obviously is the real purpose of coal seam gas mining. This is effectively driving people out of the rural areas, away from their traditional farm lands, and forcing them into concentrated pockets of civilization. This will be ongoing; if you watch this over the next few years you’re going to see more and more people moving from their farms, being forced to as it is too toxic to live there anymore. This is how these sections of population are being cleared and forced to move into the cities. It isn’t about returning the rural areas to nature; it is about making those areas available for sustainable resource practices.

Sustainable resource practices are about sustaining the industry for as long as possible – doing whatever you can to make sure you can keep exploiting the area. That is what sustainable development is all about. It is just wrapped up in a package and painted green so that people will think it is ecologically friendly, when it is exactly the opposite.

There are new laws being introduced in the UK which will effectively outlaw homelessness. People are made homeless due to the economic model; homelessness and the discarding of the population is a natural by-product of this corrupt economic system. Couple this with coal seam gas mining and the pollution of the water, and the introduction of GM crops which effectively cause sterility in those who consume them over successive generations. Tests carried out on animals clearly result in sterility by the third generation in all animals that have been tested consuming GM food. All this is Agenda 21 in motion – depopulation.

It is easy to force people into consuming GM foods simply by placing them in positions of poverty, and providing unlabelled GM food at low prices in supermarkets. The low-priced ‘value’ brands are likely GM, and all are designed to de-populate what is perceived to be the lower-classes of society – those who are not economically viable. This system does everything it can to ensure that people remain in a state which is not economically viable. Another way this is done is through a process of total criminalization. The concept of total criminalization is something which is very attractive to governments because if you make everybody a criminal, suddenly everyone becomes uniform in the eyes of the law.

The way they do this is by gradually introducing more and more laws, so that eventually almost everything becomes a crime. This includes all the things you would normally do as a normal, functioning human being. They then attach fines to these breaches of so-called law, again placing economic stress on people. This again leads to homelessness, which eventually leads to prison terms, and of course those in prison are being fed GM foods. So here we see how the introduction of legislation is again contributing towards the UN depopulation programme.

There is something very important to understand about legislation, when looking at why there is so much crime in the world today. The reason there is so much crime is because the government is introducing more and more legislation thereby making almost everything a crime. The more legislation that is enacted, the more crime is created. That is the main purpose of legislation – it isn’t to keep people safe, it is to create crime and thereby create the mechanism by which the wealth of the people may be extracted from them via fines and jail terms.

All of these things are ongoing; they are happening right now. While all of these little, subtle things are happening in society, designed to place people in a state of manufactured financial stress, people aren’t noticing it because they are distracted waiting for a big cataclysm such as a financial crash or the outbreak of World War III. And so people are not paying attention to what is happening all around them right now, and they’re not seeing how it all connects together.

The ‘divide and conquer’ strategy has worked very effectively on our society, and that is the main reason these problems still exist and, no matter what we do, things just keep going along in the same direction. This is because we are attempting to use the parameters of the system to deal with the system, when really we have the potential and the power to step above the system and rain the whole thing in – and hold our public trustees accountable for their actions. We have the power to do this, but it will only be achieved by a united community. That type of unity will only ever be achieved by people who are willing to respect one another.

The solution is as simple as people changing their perspective and their attitude, not only towards the people around them, but also towards themselves. The lack of respect for other people always has its basis in one’s lack of respect for themselves. This is a programmed reality which people are forced to endure simply by operating in the parameters of the system. This is a very clever system and it is designed to completely mess-up the human psyche, and you’ve got to give it 10 points for effectiveness.

However, that being said, the tide is about to turn – things are about to change. It will however require the participation of the people in order for it to happen. I genuinely believe that’s what this time in history is about, and things are indeed about to change. More and more people are beginning to question this reality and question this system. Something people can do, when looking at this whole system – social, economic or government, is to ask themselves if their life is one of comfort and abundance; and if it isn’t, to ask themselves why. Why are you forced to run so hard on the treadmill? Why are you forced to be enslaved to an economic model which is interest-based and designed to place you in scarcity? Why is our system like this? Why are there laws making it illegal to feed homeless people? Why is it that when a supermarket throws food out at the end of the day, they put it in a locked bin and won’t simply give it to poor people? Why are they attempting to bring in laws which may outlaw homelessness? Why do we have a system which was created by mankind to serve mankind’s needs, and yet mankind has become the most expendable thing within its parameters?

When you ask yourself these questions it becomes clear that what has happened to our societies is that we have had a slavery system gradually superimposed over our reality. Thus in the modern world today, virtually everybody is forced to live in a state of perpetual or self-generating debt as soon as they are old enough to work. What we have here is ‘people farming’; we have human trafficking by debt-slavery, whereby every person within this society has been turned into a commodity. Turned into a mechanism by which the criminal, ruling banksters at the top of the food-chain are able to harvest your wealth.

Real wealth is not measured in terms of possessions; it cannot be judged in terms of financial security. Real wealth is your life; your health. What makes you wealthy is if you are a happy, healthy person living in a good environment. The banksters harvest your time, your health and your life – they harvest you.

It is extremely important for people to see the reality of this, and it is very much necessary for people to understand that this is a system that is wholly supported and perpetuated by governments. The reason that governments are able to get away with it is because the people have forgotten what their place in the social hierarchy is. People have forgotten that governments are public servants – public trustees; we actually sit above them in the food-chain. They are in fact our employees. Through the imposition of the government-controlled education system, this knowledge has been gradually educated out of the masses. Meanwhile the bills and laws have been raised and raised, and people have been taught to run faster and faster on the treadmill, so that now they’re running flat-out and they don’t even realize that their running. This means of course that they never really have time to look around them and notice what is going on, and how this system is run.

When you start to see how the system is run, it becomes obvious that we’re being scammed by the very people we employ to manage our infrastructure for us and to keep us safe. These are the very people who we appoint to positions of trust to manage our society in an honest, caring and decent manner. Our public servants are not doing that; they are all in breach of trust, and they are using the power we give them to steal the wealth of all of our nations. It is about time we paid attention to this fact. If we were to pay attention to it, from the perspective of a respectful and therefore empowered community, we could change this situation in a day. There is a real need for us to do this.

When looking at the world today, one must ask the questions: How far are we prepared to go? How much are we prepared to take? Are we prepared to allow our planet to be destroyed and the lives of the people around us to be ruined simply because some people wrote some words down on a piece of paper, and dared to call it law? Is that what it takes to control us? Is that all it takes to decimate the human species – simply writing something down on a piece of paper? Is that all it takes to remove the will of the people, and to force them to comply with their own destruction? Are we so confused as to what reality is that we really believe this fictional paper-based world is real?

People are waking up in vast numbers all around the world, and are beginning to question the fiction. The more a government attempts to lock society down, the more people wake up to the control mechanism. So ultimately the government, and the control system itself, is bringing about its own demise. The system is ramping up the control grid so much now and in such a hurried manner. The people who are doing it are stumbling; they’re making mistakes and making their presence known. More and more people are becoming empowered with the knowledge of who and what they are – and that is truly a beautiful thing. The key word in this control system is ‘fiction’. We can step above the entire thing once we remember who and what we are and choose to stand in our power.

Nobody controls the vessel that you inhabit. The only mind that controls your flesh is yourself. Anybody who claims otherwise is running a slavery system. Once you become aware of it you start to see the way out of the slavery system. It has to be done with respect and in a peaceful manner. Once you understand how the system works, and when you truly understand and respect yourself, then you really don’t see any need to conduct yourself otherwise anyway. Because if you do, really all you’re doing is playing right into their hands. There is a far better way of doing things. The way to conduct yourself in any of these situations is from a perspective of empowerment and respect. It all comes down to the individual, and always has.

There are a lot of movements, currently being waged in the world, against many of the problems that we face. But all too often these organizations are still attempting to use the legal system to find a way of making a stand against the actions of our corrupt governments. By doing this what they are failing to see is that the modern legal system was not constructed to afford people remedy, but rather to tie people up in red tape and to protect the system. The legal system was designed by the system in order to protect itself. So we are never going to find a remedy for our current situation by using the parameters that are given to us by the system. What we need to do is remember or place in the social hierarchy, step above it, and hold our public trustees in breach of trust. This could be done through something like a People’s Mandate. If you could get enough people together in your country to mandate your will to the government and instruct them to carry out that will, then if they wish to maintain the facade of being a democratic and fair system they will have no choice but to comply with the will of the people. Failure to abide by a People’s Mandate, properly delivered to our elected trustees, would mean that the government has abdicated its right to govern – and would be required to step down. Again, this could only happen if people choose to respect each other.

Ultimately, when you look at this situation, the solution to all of the problems we face always comes down to the people themselves. The power to change the world is in the hands of each individual. The key to your own salvation is in your heart, and the key to changing this world is in applying your heart, energy and respect to the people around you and to the world at large. If we do this, we can change things. The question is: What is it going to take for that to happen? Participation is all it would take. There is nobody on the Earth who really has any more power than anybody else. The only power that people perceive they have is the power they are granted from others who choose to give their own power away. Once one becomes aware of the situation, and aware of the fact that these choices do exist, things can be viewed very differently. From the very moment that you wake up to the machinations of this control system, you are given the conscious choice whether to participate in this system or not. Refuse to comply with any piece of legislation which interferes with your moral compass. Ultimately there is only one law on this planet: Do No Harm. Any legislation that contravenes that law is no law, and is entitled to no obedience.

PsyWar: A Short History of the Battle for the Mind

free-dumb

As with all totalitarian regimes, the black/white or the good/bad Baby Bush “You’re either with us or you’re with the Terrorists” – binary rhetoric lies at the heart of the Global Power Elite’s PsyWar technology.

In 2004, Denis Boneau, a French journalist writing for the Voltaire Network, published an article called “The Science of World Domination”  (www.voltairenet.org/The-Science-of-World-Domination), making an excellent summary of key milestones in the development of the United States’ post-World War II Global Psychological Warfare Strategy.

He starts by describing the Truman Doctrine of “Containment” of the former Soviet Union that was based on the so-called “long telegram” sent to the State Department in 1946 by an advisor in the US embassy in Moscow – and key Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) scholar – George S. Kennan.

Shortly afterwards, Kennan was called back to the US to brief his superiors more fully and his recommendations were finally published in the July 1947 issue of Foreign Affairs, the official journal of the CFR, as “The Sources of Soviet Conduct.” This became known as the “X” article because that’s how Kennan signed it, as there was still heated debated as to whether it would become official US foreign policy.

It did. With his highly influential article, Kennan gave birth to the US policy of “Containment” of the Soviet Union which consisted in blocking the expansion of communism through the control of national emancipationist movements that could lead to greater power to pro-socialist or nationalist leaders.

As official policy, “Containment” required the collaboration of experts capable of providing geographical, economic, cultural, psychological and sociological data useful to the US Armed Forces and the intelligence community, working very closely with key think tanks like the CFR.

Thus began the Cold War which Kennan and the US Government believed would give the United States a historic opportunity to assume leadership over what they would eventually describe as the “Free World.” With time, as the Global Power Elite became more deeply embedded inside the US and British public and private power structures (and that of their key allies), that “leadership” would end up encompassing practically the whole planet.

In a way, one can say that the CFR in conjunction with other think-tank and university scholars – George Kennan, Henry Kissinger, Leo Strauss, Zbigniew Brzezinski included – single-handedly started and macro-managed last century’s forty-five year long Cold War.

As part of that global strategy, 1947 also saw the Truman Administration sanction the National Security Act which, amongst other things, created the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) tasked with designing, planning and executing “propaganda, economic war, direct preventive action, sabotage, anti-sabotage, destruction, subversion against hostile States, assistance to clandestine liberation movements, guerrilla, murders, assistance to indigenous groups opposed to the enemy countries of the ‘free world’…

What is Psychological Warfare?

Boneau defines Psychological Warfare (PsyWar) as a number of actions ranging from radio propaganda to torture, that require comprehensive information on targeted populations. In a document written in 1948, American ground forces defined “psychological warfare” as follows:

“It is based on moral and physical means different from those upon which orthodox military techniques are based on. Its purpose is: (a) To destroy the will and the fighting spirit of the enemy and avoid its allies’ support and, (b) To encourage our troops and our allies’ will of being victorious.”

PsyWar uses every possible weapon and tool to influence and impact the will of the enemy. Such “weapons” are labelled “psychological” because of their effect and not because of their own nature. This is the reason why, open propaganda (“white”), secret (“black”) or “grey” propaganda – subversion, sabotage, murders, special operations, guerrilla, espionage, political, economic and racial and ethnic pressures – are all considered useful PsyWar weapons.

To implement such programs, the intelligence services recruited specialists on behavioural sciences capable of inventing the “simple, clear and repetitive” white propaganda and black propaganda aimed at provoking “disorder, confusion and… terror” within the enemy forces.

We thus begin to fathom that the so-called “Arab Spring” of today did not just suddenly and spontaneously explode in 2011, but was rather hatched from an “egg” laid decades ago and brooded by the secret intelligence agencies.

“White” Propaganda

This began in the 40’s and 50’s with Project Troy that mobilised top scholars to identify available means of transmitting the “truth” (i.e., US propaganda) behind the Iron Curtain through powerful radio transmitters like the Voice of America, the broadcasting network created by the International Information Service (IIS), another PsyWar institution created under the Truman Administration.

Voice of America was used to promote US “values” of so-called “democracy,” the “American Way of Life,” “freedom” and Corporate Capitalism. A key leader of Project Troy was James Webb, adviser to Secretary of State Dean Acheson and a “psychological warfare” operative who recommended university experts and the government to work closer.

They soon realised, however, that Voice of America was not enough to penetrate the Iron Curtain and supported by the US Navy and the CIA, they suggested other channels to implement “white” propaganda: university exchanges, publications of books, information through the mail, professional journals, commerce and industrial publications.

Truman also created the Psychological Strategy Board encouraging studies of “Soviet society” through a program of recruiting dissidents called Project CENIS – Centre for International Studies – at MIT (Massachusetts Institute of Technology) directed by CFR operative Max Millikan.

This worked so well that in 1950 the US Air Force commissioned and funded similar research on the Korean population. Wilbur Schramm, the founding father of the mass communication paradigm, John Ridley and Fredericks Williams were given the mission of interviewing anti-communist refugees to draw up a suitable propaganda strategy on Korea. The study also resulted in the establishment of the “Public Opinion Quarterly” (POQ), the official magazine of “psychological warfare” community.

In the 1963 Project Camelot was created that defined process models leading to national revolutions in Third World countries to facilitate counter-insurgence operations. Camelot is a good example of the strengthening ties between behavioural scholars and the US Intelligence community (i.e., intel services, universities, major corporations, think-tanks and the Military). It facilitated interventions in Yemen, Cuba and the Congo, and helped foresee and prevent the risk of revolution.

In Chile, operating through the Special Operations Research Office (SORO), Project Camelot supported CIA plans to overthrow the democratically elected government of Salvador Allende imposing General Augusto Pinochet’s military junta on Chile on 11 September 1973.

Psychological Warfare Strategy development also counted on key universities dealing in Communication Sciences to develop the “mass communication” paradigm financed by the US Military, the CIA and the State Department. This led to effective propaganda used to penetrate the Iron Curtain through different means, including leaflets and broadcasting. The discipline’s field of study was wide: persuasion techniques, opinion polls, interviews, military and political mobilisations, ideological dissemination…

They have now come a long way thanks to dramatic breakthroughs in communications and information technologies, where propaganda and PsyWar have to a great extent been outsourced and privatised. Today, their main PsyWar weapons include TV, radio, press and internet outlets such as Fox, CNN, MSNBC, ABC, CBS, PBS, New York Times, Newsweek, BBC, RTVE, RAI, Time, Daily Telegraph, Sun, Mirror, Daily News, Reuters, Jerusalem Post and their global subsidiaries and dependants.

Most importantly, this process also encompasses that key arm of social engineering and thought deformation known as the “entertainment industry” with Hollywood as its main hub and flagship.

Dirty Tricks Departments

From the very beginning, torture was considered a research field in social sciences. During the Korean War, the BSSR (main “black” propaganda research centre) was charged with carrying out studies for the Army to identify Eastern Europe population’s “vulnerability targets and factors” while defining different “aspects of psychological violence.” BSSR reported on the effects of traditional interrogation techniques – electric shocks, blows, drugs – all funded in part by the CIA, especially on the populations of Viet Nam and Africa, geared at improving torture effectiveness.

The paradigm of mass communication was inserted in a broader intellectual plan consisting in the division of the world map based on the American strategists’ logic. The patriarch of this discipline, Wilbur Schramm (as did Leo Strauss), offered a perspective of this reductionist dimension of communication sciences based on the “good guys/bad guys” antagonism, where communism symbolised “Evil” and America symbolised “Good.” This was shared by the majority of the intellectuals and scientists supporting the US government in its fight against Soviet expansionism where neutrality was considered treason.

In 2001, the Bush Administration reactivated these Cold War mechanisms, not to fight the Soviet Union but to impose a “New World Order.” Since 11 September 2001, the excuse for this reactivation is “The War on Terror.” Once again the intelligence community turned to universities: the CIA’s director of scientific research, John Philips, took control of the Rochester Institute of Technology; Michael Crawl, deputy director of the CIA’s joint economic association in the computer sector was appointed dean of the University of Arizona, and Robert Gates (former CIA director under Bush Senior) before becoming Bush/Obama’s Pentagon Chief was president of Texas A&M University.

Alas! Nothing new under the sun…
