Truth is not a democracy, its very essence does not require a majority rule.  Nothing that is true requires hiding or censorship to make sure it is held as truth, the nature of truth holds belief in itself by itself.

The purpose of writing this article is to help our family and friends realize the truth of the situation they live in, that they survive in a seamless aquarium built by the lies from the masters of the media screen (whether that be computer phone or T.V). They were promised freedom but now live content inside their safe space like a tamed lion, not even questioning the shrinking space of their cages. 

 The amount of propaganda that people are hit with every day is astounding. It’s unbelievable (and a little frustrating) that this propaganda works so well without being detected. 

Today families are purposely divided through the media they consume. This division is done on purpose as a method of control and even includes our beliefs in science and therefore medicine.

You may not believe such a bold claim about our dear government and its media empire but then maybe you have not heard about such government sanctioned activities like Operation Mockingbird (or MK-Ultra and its various demon spawn).

This little-known project called Operation Mockingbird makes one wonder how anyone could trust a network news source ever again.  The public may never really know the accurate beginnings of such a secret project but it was discovered in 1973 that the C.I.A. was funding media outlets to persuade public opinion. Furthermore, the CIA discovered that it was relatively easy to control the press, all you had to do was control the editor. And so it goes with all media, that is, if you can choose what the public sees you can determine how they see reality. 


The definition of Propaganda is “the spreading of ideas, information, or rumor for the purpose of helping or injuring an institution, a cause, or a person”, using this definition can we see something within those words that might have something to do with what we are going through and have been going through for decades. Operation Mockingbird was the CIA using journalists to promote particular views and ideas concerning a great many topics. Through that operation, there have been findings showing how much the elite groups of people have controlled society’s ideals and steered people to believe certain things that are just plain untrue or salted with the truth. Many have forgotten that the government is now allowed legally to use (a weaponized form of) propaganda against its own citizens  

 “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. …In almost every act of our daily lives, whether in the sphere of politics or business, in our social conduct or our ethical thinking, we are dominated by the relatively small number of persons…who understand the mental processes and social patterns of the masses. It is they who pull the wires which control the public mind.”

― Edward Bernays, Propaganda. 

Bernays was the nephew of Freud and this gave him some insight into the subconscious but instead of helping humanity, he used this knowledge to get women to start smoking cigarettes.  He did this through public spectacle and film which is still one of the most popular methods of propaganda today.  

Bernays is also known for creating the public relations counsel and really setting off how companies are symbolized in the public mind; every major firm and fortune 500 company hires a PR firm “The public relations counsel must deal with the fact that persons who have little knowledge of a subject almost invariably form definite and positive judgments upon that subject” (E. Bernays, Crystallizing Public Opinion). 

The whole world of propaganda is ripe with manipulating rituals to have power over the individual by harnessing the collective thought patterns of that society or people group. 

In summary- 

1- Propaganda has been used for decades to make a particular view popular and a part of the vernacular.

2- It is now legal for the government to propagandize its citizens.

Propaganda of science

“Science, when practiced as the application of man’s God-given talents for the production of appropriate technology on a human scale, relief of misery and the reverential exploration and appreciation of the glory of Divine Providence as revealed in nature, is a useful tool for mankind. Scientism is science gone mad, which is what we have today.”

(Hoffman, 49) Secret Societies and Psychological Warfare

Today the science is clouded and made all-powerful because we assume that these people know best because they understand something many don’t. With this is the propaganda that science will create a better world and all we have to do is sit and wait. Today, science has not been practiced the way it was centuries ago, many of the ideas have been thrown out because people use it today as a control mechanism on the populous. Science has become a religion and that religion is called “scientism” and it has become the main ideal for decades. The propaganda that is used to promote certain scientific ideas has caused many deaths and extreme health problems. 

The use of science (as propaganda) on the populous has made it to where if one questions the promoted science you become an anti-science bigot. This begs the question “how can one be anti-science yet use it on a daily basis when farming and doing other tasks like cooking and cleaning?” This is where the scientific dictatorship relies on its followers to smash and shun said person just for asking questions that may or may not reveal something that the elite want hidden. 

Several ideas are glued to the topic of a scientific dictatorship and the main one is transhumanism. A book was written before Brave New World and 1984 laid out an idea and has several good quotes that show how far science has fallen from its original ideals. This book is called WE written by Yevgeny Zamyatin, a quote that is shocking to read yet has very revealing words especially in modern times “You’re in a bad way! Apparently, you have developed a soul.”, “And everyone must lose his mind, everyone must! The sooner the better! It is essential — I know it.” These quotes should be read within the context of the book but stand alone they can show where the ideals of modern science are. 

In summary-

1- science in its traditional role is a helpful tool given by God to His children

2- science has become a religion (scientism) unto itself in the promotion of man becoming god (transhumanism)

Family Division Surrounding Science and Medicine

On the family level, there are many issues concerning this pandemic. The family dynamic has been shifted and molded to get people to follow along to get along. The goal to destroy the family dynamic has come to a head in the last couple of years. This can be seen just by the way the outside world has come into the family.  The main one being whether to be vaccinated or not. Since there has been so much propaganda around these vaccines and the whole pandemic people feel differently about taking these experimental therapies. Something many are not considering outside of the medical area is the emotional trauma that will happen the more people wear masks and see loved ones pass due to this vaccine. There is a very high possibility that a large portion of the vaccines from all the manufacturers is either duds or placebos, so this would mean that some of the deaths could very well be due to said person just being very unhealthy before they got a vaccine. Which within the scope of this can still cause issues because they will be told they died of Covid rather than just being unhealthy. Adding to the trauma that so many families are going through right now. The future may be very weird just due to the fact that so many will be growing up only knowing masks and distancing themselves from others. Some families have even gone as far as keeping their child locked in their room for two weeks because they may or may not have Covid. People have yet to understand the trauma that will have on a whole generation of kids. Here’s a small study on what happens to a baby when the mother shows no emotion in the face,

The experiment shows that with minimal emotion people become stressed and unsure of everything. From the point of view of society right now this means nothing and isn’t on their minds. Mothers and Fathers are out in the world following these ridiculous mandates about a mask and getting their children to do the same. In the long term, we have no real idea what the case may be with these kids because when we look back at the still face experiment the child needs to go back to the good or at the very least back to what they can understand as normal. Now with this, children at home don’t wear masks with their parents, but when they go out into the world they see everyone with it on. Their teachers wear one and other people who kids are supposed to interact with on several levels. This will cause a disconnect from each other and make people no longer want any sort of relationship just due to the possibility that said person doesn’t understand trust. Within a family, this can cause strife because the kids will very likely developmental disorders because a huge scope of how they learn is through contact and seeing things, especially the person’s face when they are being taught. I don’t think anyone is looking at this major problem that will bite us in the end even if in another year they say no more masks, the damage has been done. 

In summary-

1- We have no idea what this all will do to children in the next five to ten years.

2- Due to propaganda people are dealing with all this the best they can and due to so much strife, it’s dissolving one of the last groundings of society.

3- For the time it is the only speculation as to how things will resolve or conclude.

Thinking Forward

A dying art is finding the truth in the fallen world we are in. This comes from being pounded with propaganda and spiritual warfare. We know the Truth yet we hide it openly which is good yet at the same time terrible and detrimental to those around us who don’t see what we see. Everyone has to go and find the truth for themselves to truly understand it. There are those out there that are helping along those who are looking to understand the truth. The medical world is full of delusion and truth and like the science field, it is becoming harder to know what is true and what is false. As one looks over these things one will come to see that some things are true and others are propaganda and lies to move each person to a certain point of view. With prayer and knowing what God wants from us, we will get through the tortures of finding what is real and what is false.  

Whenever you tell someone the truth there will be lies thrown at them from all angles afterward. The truth may also be too much for someone to hear and due to this, they will run back to the lies that have held them before. This is a common thing when being confronted with a topic or subject that requires one to self-reflect. God willing in time most will see the dangers of what is happening and make decisions wisely concerning their health and the health of their families.

The disparity between neurological responses to fearful stimuli is key.” Bill made it legal for propaganda to be used on American people.
