In his 1928 classic, PROPAGANDA, Edward Barneys explains how America’s Public Opinion is controlled:
“The conscious and intelligent manipulation of the organized habits and opinions of the masses is an important element in democratic society. Those who manipulate this unseen mechanism of society constitute an invisible government which is the true ruling power of our country. We are governed, our minds are molded, our tastes formed, our ideas suggested, largely by men we have never heard of. This is a logical result of the way in which our democratic society is organized. Vast numbers of human beings must cooperate in this manner if they are to live together as a smoothly functioning society.”
Edward Barneys calls these people, “men we have never heard of.” But today we do know the CIA dictates the story lines of all major news publications. Put aside the immorality and unfairness of our own CIA propagandizing and “gaslighting” us and just look into the news stories to see our future. I’m not suggesting a CIA unauthorized narrative. I’m proposing to use the CIA narratives like a CRYSTAL BALL.
The CIA coined the term, “Conspiracy Theory”, in a 1967 dispatch to Radio and TV news outlets recommending methods for discrediting unauthorized narratives. That’s how “conspiracy theory” came to mean UNAUTHORIZED NARRATIVE. This CIA dispatch was accidentally produced in response to a Freedom of Information Act request by the New York Times in 1976.
