- Assuming I still have the freedom to speak and share my thoughts, here they are. You may disagree, and that’s your right as well.
I hope my speculation proves to be absolutely wrong, but…
- Vaccines are being pushed at the hardest pace yet, with virtually all popular media outlets acting as agents of propaganda. Trust me, vaccine passports are in this plan as more and more businesses and government agencies (at both the stated and federal level) are mandating vaccinations, or weekly testing; the latter will eventually end giving way to mandatory shots. So much for individual rights and American freedom.
- Vaccination cards are being required more and more.
- Politicians, government workers, and deep-state agents (unelected bureaucrats with massive amounts of power), and billionaire elites are waiting for the next lockdown to further unfurl their plan.
- Despite government figures, unemployment is at record levels effecting supply chains and inflation. Meantime would-be workers are enjoying their unearned income of as much as $3600 a month. Some amount of assistance is actually going to married couples with a commanded income of $170,000.
- The next lockdown will see more government handouts as as the country rushes toward Universal Basic Income (for all).
- Defiance will be punished with difficulty getting food, gas other necessary items. Bank accounts will be closed. Society will treat these as lepers.
- Families, and friends will be more contentious over these issues than they are today.
- As the next (man-made) round of virus hits, more of the elderly and those with existing medical issues (including obesity) will die. Eventually complications from the “vaccine” will begin to show widespread illness (and worse).
- The healthcare system will become overwhelmed. Insurance carriers will go bankrupt.
- The government will have then rollout Universal Healthcare.
- In time our dollar will collapse.
- China will then fulfill its goal of becoming the world’s dominate country by 2049.
To start with, this is not a commentary about vaccine vs n0-vaccine. It’s commentary on masks.
Remember when President Joe Biden called referred to those who wanted to lift mask mandates as engaging in “Neanderthal thinking?”
That’s what Biden called it when Mississippi and Texas lifted their mask mandates and capacity limits.
“Look, I hope everybody’s realized by now, these masks make a difference,” Biden said on March 3. “We are on the cusp of being able to fundamentally change the nature of this disease because of the way with which we’re able to get vaccines in people’s arms. We’ve been able to move that all the way up to the end of May to have enough for every American, to get every adult American to get a shot. The last thing, the last thing we need is Neanderthal thinking that in the meantime, ‘Everything is fine, take off your masks, forget it.’ It still matters.”
Guess what? The “Neanderthal thinking” was right on the mark. And now the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and The New York Times agree.
In an article Wednesday, entitled “Covid Hope Over Fear,” The Times said the science says that “vaccinated Americans rarely needed to wear masks, it caused both anxiety and uncertainty.”
In Episode 80 of Hidden Headlines I discuss the effective use of Propaganda by the Democratic Party and the Left in general.
They have become excellent at making the public believe whatever fake news will serve their purposes.
Where did they learn this?
From the “father of public relations,” Edward Bernays.
Edward Bernays could sell anything.
In his 1928 book, “Propaganda,” Bernays hypothesized that by understanding the group mind, it would be possible to manipulate people’s behavior without their even realizing it. For example, in his first big test of this hypothesis, Bernays launched one of his most famous public relations campaigns: convincing women to smoke.
In 1929, it was taboo for women to smoke in public and those who flouted convention were thought to be sexually permissive. Bernays’ client was George Washington Hill, president of the American Tobacco Company, who envisioned breaking this taboo to broaden the market for his Lucky Strike brand. Bernays asked Hill for permission to consult with New York’s leading psychoanalyst and Freud disciple, Dr. A.A. Brill, and was granted this unusual request.
This was the first but not the last time Bernays would consult with psychoanalysts to help shape his public relations campaigns. When asked what cigarettes symbolized to women, Brill’s response was that cigarettes were symbolic of male power.
Equating smoking with challenging male power was the cornerstone of Lucky Strike’s “Torches of Freedom” campaign, which debuted during New York’s annual Easter Parade on April 1, 1929. Bernays had procured a list of debutantes from the editor of Vogue magazine and pitched the idea that they could contribute to the expansion of women’s rights by lighting up cigarettes and smoking them in the most public of places—Fifth Avenue. The press was warned beforehand and couldn’t resist the story. The “Torches of Freedom Parade” was covered not only by the local papers, but also by newspapers nationwide and internationally. Bernays was duly convinced that linking products to emotions could cause people to behave irrationally. In reality, of course, women were no freer for having taken up smoking, but linking smoking to women’s rights fostered a feeling of independence.
Bernays not only helped move products, but he learned how to move ideology as well for politicians and non-profits.
The Left uses his books as their primary resources to this day: Covid, the January 6th “insurrection,” and so on.
It’s a fascinating podcast. Hope you’ll listen and share.
