Wag the Dog (1997) Propaganda 2.0 and the rise of ‘narrative networks’ George Dvorsky November 16, 2011 DARPA, the Pentagon's advanced concepts think-tank, is looking to take propaganda to the next level and they're hoping to do so by controlling the very way their targets perceive and interpret the flow of incoming information. The Pentagon believes that by engaging in 'narrative control' they can alter an individual's grasp on reality and the way in which they evaluate current events. Simply put, DARPA is looking to shape minds with stories. Now, this isn't an entirely new concept. It's been said that history books are written by the victors. The United States has been engaging in narrative control for quite some time now. Now I'm not suggesting that this isn't a valid interpretation of events. But now DARPA wants to take this further and make it more scientific and systematic. This is pretty heavy stuff. Lim describes how the project will unfold: When it comes to security, little consideration is given to ethics.

Eight O They Live! Eight O’Clock in the Morning by Ray Nelseon “Eight O’Clock in the Morning” is a short story written by Ray Nelson almost a half century ago. The well known movie “They Live” was based on that story and I just wanted to share it because even thought it’s supposed to be a work of science fiction, the story holds many analogies to our current situation. At the end of the show the hypnotist told his subjects, “Awake.” Something unusual happened. One of the subjects awoke all the way. He left the theatre, pushing out into the neon night, carefully avoiding any indication that he saw the green, reptilian flesh or the multiple yellow eyes of the rulers of the earth. At intervals along the street George saw the posters hanging with photographs of the Fascinators’ multiple eyes and various commands printed under them, such as, “Work eight hours, play eight hours, sleept eight hours,” and “Marry and Reproduce.” “Obey!”

I'm Dick Sutphen and this tape is a studio-recorded, expanded version of a talk I delivered at the World Congress of Professional Hypnotists Convention in Las Vegas, Nevada. Although I've been interviewed about the subject on many local and regional radio and TV talk shows, large-scale mass communication appears to be blocked, since it could result in suspicion or investigation of the very media presenting it or the sponsors that support the media. Everything I will relate only exposes the surface of the problem. In talking about this subject, I am talking about my own business. Charles J. Alright.

They Live They Live is a 1988 American satirical science fiction horror film written and directed by John Carpenter. The film stars Roddy Piper, Keith David, and Meg Foster. It follows an unnamed drifter (referred to as "John Nada" in the film's credits) who discovers the ruling class are in fact aliens concealing their appearance and manipulating people to spend money, breed, and accept the status quo with subliminal messages in mass media. They Live is based on the 1963 short story, "Eight O'Clock in the Morning" by Ray Nelson. At release it was number one in the box office, but sales soon suffered, though the film was nominated for two Saturn Awards. They Live has since become a cult film.

Stratospheric Aerosol Geo-engineering aka "Chemtrails" DEBUNK THIS !!!! The subject of "chemtrails" also known as "stratospheric aerosol geo-engineering" or "persistent contrails" as some might have you believe. Has recently been the topic of some controversy here on ATS. In attempting to discuss this issue during a recent thread that was posted in the "Skunk Works" section. I encountered a small but very extreme group of members who have a very strong conviction and opposition to the idea that "chemtrails" even exist. Many other people both here and elsewhere do not believe that they actually exist either and they simply explain them away as being a normal and natural phenomenon of the common jet contrails. Some of those among the now non-believers were convinced that "chemtrails" do not exist due to the extreme tactics and lengthy efforts of the very same group of anti "chemmies" I encountered. Well I am here to tell you that it is they who are the ones living in a World of self delusion and fantasy.
