With the advent of the popularity of television in the 1930s and 1940s, the banksters had an instrument through which the masses could be controlled effectively, immediately, and effortlessly.
British author, John Hamer says, “Television is by far the most devastating brainwashing device ever unleashed upon humanity.”
Makow Comment- Cabalist bankers whose religion is inverting reality were quick to seize the organs of mass deception. Thus, society suffers from cognitive dissonance. For example, heterosexual Christian institutions like marriage and family are under relentless vicious attack but this is portrayed as progress, i.e. “sexual liberation,” women’s, trans and gay rights.
The mass media no longer pretends to be truthful, objective or to give both sides. We have adopted the Communist model where the “Party” (Masonic Jewish bankers) is always right. For example, the media is parroting the transparent lie that Assad would gas his own people, a flimsy pretext for Western aggression. The West has transitioned to Communism without the fuss and bother of a revolution. Thus, no one has noticed, and the media certainly won’t tell you.

Ironically, the BBC, upon which Orwell modelled his ‘Ministry of Truth,’ became one of the pioneers of television, the ultimate newspeak/doublespeak medium.
When Orwell died in January 1950, there were only 100,000 TVs in Britain and 5 million in the United States. Today, there are almost as many TVs as there are people in the western world.
Most people do not realize that when they turn on the television in their home, what they see as a constant flow of images is actually flickering and although we do not recognize this consciously, the repetitive pattern of flickering images creates a state that is similar to hypnosis in the television viewer.
Studies by researcher Dr. Herbert Krugman have shown that within 30 seconds of television viewing, brain waves switch from predominantly beta waves, indicating alert and conscious attention, to predominantly alpha waves, indicating an unfocussed yet receptive lack of attention. The brain’s left hemisphere, which processes information logically and analytically, tunes-out whilst a person is watching TV, whilst the right hemisphere of the brain, which processes information emotionally and non-critically, is allowed to function without hindrance.
Due to this phenomenon, television transmits information, which is not actively recognized at the time of exposure, much like hypnosis and therefore when viewing TV, we do not consciously rationalize the information at the time of transmission and we become more open and suggestible. Because of this passive, hypnosis-like viewing of television, as well as its predominance in our homes, television is one of the most powerful tools of control, today.
