TERMINALLY GULLIBLE PUBLIC

Republished by Blog Post Promoter

“Our lives are now fraught with easily-disproved fantasies, frauds and fictions being pushed to us through the media by institutions with deliberate agendas trying to engineer specific outcomes. Those of us with a pragmatic mindset and an ability to recall (even quite recent) history, often find ourselves with mouths literally agape at the obvious deceptions being foisted upon what appears to be a terminally-gullible public.”

— Chris Martenson describes the world of medicine, media, finance, politics and education.

THE POLITICAL ICON

“The people have always some champion whom they set over them and nurse into greatness. …This and no other is the root from which a tyrant springs; when he first appears he is a protector.  When the tyrant has disposed of foreign enemies by conquest or treaty, and there is nothing to fear from them, then he is always stirring up some war or other, in order that the people may require a leader.”  — Plato, 380 BCE

FOUR FUNDAMENTALS OF A RELIGION or POLITICAL PARTY

 FOUR FUNDAMENTALS OF A RELIGION or POLITICAL PARTY

 1) The only god(s)/leader(s) are the one/ones that I believe in.

2) THE true god/leader is taking care of everything so I don’t have to be responsible for anything.

3) If you don’t believe (blindly) in the same, exact god/dogma/doctrine/propaganda that I believe, you are a sinner/devil/idiot/terrorist/traitor.

4) If you don’t obey the TRUE god/leader and do exactly what they tell you to do/think/believe, you are going to Hell/burn in eternity/be excommunicated/lose everything/be left behind/etc., while I go to Heaven/Nirvana/Paradise/Valhalla/The Bank, ect. to live in an eternity to blissful irresponsibility.
