THE ART OF PUPPETEERING
a cut n paste collection of narratives relating to Perception Management, Steering Opinions, and Master Hoodwinkers.
"A society of sheep must in time beget a government of wolves."
(...said Bertrand de Jouvenel)
"Pavlov made some extremely profound observations both on animals and on human beings. And he found among other things that conditioning techniques applied to animals or humans in a state either of psychological or physical stress sank in very deeply into the mind-body of the creature, and were extremely difficult to get rid of. That they seemed to be embedded more deeply than other forms of conditioning...."
(transcript of INDUCING CONSENT aldous huxley 1962
"Fascism should more properly be called 'Corporatism', since it is the marriage of Government and Corporate Power."
"You had to attack civilians, the people, women, children, innocent people, unknown people far removed from the political game. The reason was quite simple, to force the public to turn to the state to ask for greater security."
(the essence of OPERATION GLADIO, a decades-long covert campaign of terrorism and deceit directed by the intelligence services of the West against their own populations.)
"Terrorism is the best political weapon, for nothing drives people harder than a fear of sudden death."
(... said adolf hitler)
"The most destructive element in the human mind is fear. Fear creates aggressiveness."
..... said DOROTHY THOMPSON (1893-1961)
Dorothy Thompson also said..........
"Well, it is our fate to live in a time of crisis. To live in a time when all forms and values are being challenged. In other and more easy times, it was not, perhaps, necessary for the individual to confront himself with a clear question: What is it that you really believe? What is it that you really cherish? What is it for which you might, actually, in a showdown, be willing to die? . . . I say, with all the reticence which such large, pathetic words evoke, that one cannot exist today as a person -- one cannot exist in full consciousness -- without having to have a showdown with one's self, without having to define what it is that one lives by, without being clear in one's mind what matters and what does not matter."
"Society is deranged. ... It is dominated by moral and emotional morons. ... I want Sabotage and Opposition ... Sabotage and Opposition ... Sabotage and Opposition, against Militarism in all of its forms."
"There is nothing to fear except the persistent refusal to find out the truth, the persistent refusal to analyze the causes of happenings."
and she said...
"Only when we are no longer afraid do we begin to live."
