Beware the new war propaganda

by Bob Livingston

 “Why of course the people don’t want war … But after all it is the leaders of the country who determine the policy, and it is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy, or a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship … Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is to tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same in any country.” — Hermann Goering; German politician, Nazi Party leader, Gestapo founder.

Until we accept that government lies to us as a matter of course we will never grasp the immorality of government.

Men by nature are followers. Therefore, when authority appears, they follow. When absolute authority emerges the people follow without question and even to the point of self-sacrifice. Millions will give their own lives and those of their sons and daughters in war and never question or consider what they are doing. The mystique of government authority holds in its hands life and death — ours.

So when government men and their state media propaganda arm begin warning of imminent danger from this or that state actor — or even non-state actor in the case of Islamic terror — the people are fooled into blood sacrifices under the pretense of war and patriotism.

Wars are not for patriotism and “democracy,” as we are propagandized. Wars are to kill; i.e., mass ritual murder. And secondly, big business in league with Satan reaps massive profits for the killing and sacrifice of young men (lambs) on all sides of combat.

Phony patriotism is strong leverage against a population ignorant of the ways of treason by our own government. “Patriotism” throughout history has covered a multitude of mischief. The U.S. establishment has confused cause and effect by and through a flag-waving mania in America. We are seeing it play out once again!

Never mind that the same people and agencies who are now telling us that North Korea has suddenly created the technology to deliver a nuclear weapon on U.S. soil have been telling us for years that Iran was on the verge of developing nuclear weapons — it wasn’t — and that Iraq had weapons of mass destruction — it didn’t.

Never mind that these same people and agencies told us that the Syrian government used gas — twice — on its own people — it didn’t. This was used as justification for America’s war to topple Bashar Assad by the Barack Obama/Hillary Clinton regime; and later for Donald Trump to attack a Syrian airbase with Tomahawk missiles.

Never mind that these same people and agencies told us in the lead-up to the first Gulf War that Iraqis were removing Kuwaiti babies from incubators, and the same ones who later created a story about military raid to “free” Private Jessica Lynch from an Iraqi hospital, and the same ones who claimed Army Ranger Pat Tillman was killed by the enemy.

And they are the same ones who claim and have claimed — without evidence — that Russia interfered with the American election and are responsible for the Donald Trump presidency.

Yet like an abused spouse who returns to her husband on his promises that the abuse will end, the American people buy the new war propaganda. The U.S., which has been at war for most of its existence, has not won one since World War II. Still, it is currently involved in wars in six countries (at least) and has essentially declared war on North Korea already (sanctions and embargoes are acts of war) and seems hell-bent on starting one with Russia.

Governments throughout history — the U.S. government included — have engaged in false flag operations and mass propaganda to start and maintain wars.

One of the most conventional political tricks is to put up a well-advertised charade to cover for hidden political, military or economic machination. Anybody who has read The Prince knows this like poetry.

The Prince (1513) is an old classic still available almost anywhere. It was written by Niccolo Machiavelli. It is a blueprint for political power where the end justifies the means. This political doctrine denies the relevance of morality in political affairs and holds that craft and deceit are justified in pursuing and maintaining political power.

Conclusion: Any time the media saturates the public on any subject, look for contrary opinion if you really want the truth.
