When I was young, I saw what I thought was a silly bumper sticker, that now I realize was perhaps the most prophetic statement I’d ever read.  The bumper sticker simply said, “Everything you know is WRONG!”  SEE BELOW SHORT VIDEO TRAILER:

“Shortly before his untimely death, former British Foreign Secretary Robin Cook told the House of Commons that "Al Qaeda" is not really a terrorist group but a database of international mujaheddin and arms smugglers used by the CIA and Saudis to funnel guerrillas, arms, and money into Soviet-occupied Afghanistan.”

-- Wayne Madsen Report

"The truth is, there is no Islamic army or terrorist group called Al Qaida. And any informed intelligence officer knows this. But there is a propaganda campaign to make the public believe in the presence of an identified entity representing the 'devil' only in order to drive the 'TV watcher' to accept a unified international leadership for a war against terrorism. The country behind this propaganda is the US and the lobbyists for the US war on terrorism are only interested in making money."

-- French Officer, Maj. Pierre-Henri Bunel


  In George Orwell’s famed novel, “1984,” the hero, Winston Smith, is a poor sap who like most of us is being manipulated a thousand ways from Sunday with fake news, fake elections, and popular culture meant to distract him and his fellow Party Members and Proletariat from realizing they are being lied to about war and their economy on a minute by minute basis.

 At some point Winston Smith is contacted by someone in the underground resistance, who hands Smith a book that reveals all about how the population is manipulated by maintaining endless war, to keep everyone struggling and ignorant, by using a boogey man to terrify the masses.  To quote,

 “The essential act of war is destruction, not necessarily of human lives, but of the products of human labor.”

 “War is a way of shattering to pieces...materials which might otherwise be used to make the masses too comfortable and...too intelligent.”

 ~George Orwell – 1984

 These above quotes are from a book by the government’s boogey man called Goldstein.  Goldstein is all the things America’s enemies are, a zealot, a child molester, a rapist, a torturer, a war monger, who hates our freedom and our good life, etc. etc.   You know the spiel.  You’ve had almost 8 years of it yourself.

 Goldstein’s face appears in hatefilled propaganda films for all the people of the nation to spit at and shake their fists at, everytime the govt. shows it to get the people whipped up, terrified, and hateful enough to give all their precious money to “the war effort.”  Sound familiar?   You’ve had nearly 8 years of it yourself.

 Now, as 1984 progresses, what you discover is that this boogey-man the govt. created in Orwell’s nightmarish “1984,” . . . the evil Goldstein . . . NEVER EXISTED.  Oh he may have at one point, but the man was never what his media image has made him, and if he did exist has been long dead.
