During times of universal deceit,
telling the truth becomes a revolutionary act.
-- George Orwell
For those that don't know, we are now living in times of universal deceit. Telling the truth is your passport to punishment, but lying will earn you top dollar. Those of strong moral background and ethical character are being deliberately weeded out of the mainstream media, just as they are weeded out of government. A free nation of liberty and justice cannot exist without a free and independent press. Do you still believe we have a free press? Far from it. Just ask respected journalist Paul Craig Roberts. If you need credentials before you will consider what he has to say, please note that you are a large part of the problem. Truth does not need authority to give it stature, but we have been brainwashed from birth to believe that it does. Because that brainwashing is persistent and powerful, I present Mr. Roberts' credentials below in the hopes that the most severely brainwashed among us will listen.
- Assistant Secretary of the Treasury in the Reagan administration
- Associate Editor of the Wall Street Journal editorial page
- Contributing Editor of the National Review
- Author of How the Economy was Lost
- Coauthor of The Tyranny of Good Intentions
- William E. Simon Chair, Center for Strategic and International Studies, Georgetown University
- Senior Research Fellow, Hoover Institution, Stanford University
- French Legion of Honor recipient
- And much, much more
Mr. Roberts has been overwhelmed and overpowered by the universal deceit we are facing. Many of us don't even know the deceit exists. That is a testament to how well it is working. Many of us don't realize how extensive the deceit is. Note well the adjective "universal", meaning it is pervasive, essentially the status quo. It is so common as to be unremarkable, almost invisible. And many of us cannot accept how sophisticated the deception is. The methods used to fool us are a veritable science, having been thoroughly studied and proven both effective and reliable. Most importantly, the deception is self-policing and self-replicating. Any who dare reveal it are quickly discredited and ridiculed as "conspiracy theorists" by the criminal con-men and their brainwashed legions.
The American media ignored this story.
Ask yourself why.
