The American Idiot

With education standards dropping in the U.S. since the 1960’s, most Americans will argue they have not, since most are too uneducated now to even pick up a book written in the 1960’s, is it any wonder that we are now a nation of easily manipulated idiots who believe whatever we are told by News Pundits?

The stupider we get the more easily we are tricked into the latest scheme to rip us off. Many American’s wonder why jobs are leaving our country, but can’t look to see they started leaving when, first Reagan and then Clinton lowered tariffs. Many wonder why we had the financial collapse. They can’t look and see that Clinton and McCain passed a bill the deregulated the finance industry, making it legal to do the activities that caused the collapse.

All the information we get is controlled by 6 mega corporations, who have many connections between each corporation, is it any wonder we get no stimulating media content? Yet the average American is not even aware of this fact.

This video really illustrates the terrible condition the American society is in.

Society is Being Systematically Dumbed Down by Big Pharma and the Media

Today the Media cares more about celebrity gossip than presidential campaigns.

Today lies are passed off as news and the companies that do this call it free speech and have won court cases saying they can do this.

Today children are given drugs that are known to be mind altering in the guess of help.

This video just begins to touch the tip of the Ice Berg, but is very good

“Orwell Rolls in his Grave” Documentary about Media Control

Director Robert Kane Pappas’ ORWELL ROLLS IN HIS GRAVE is the consummate critical examination of the Fourth Estate(News Media as a political force), once the bastion of American democracy.

Asking whether America has entered an Orwellian world of doublespeak where outright lies can pass for the truth, Pappas explores what the media doesn’t like to talk about: itself. Meticulously tracing the process by which media has distorted and often dismissed actual news events, Pappas presents a riveting and eloquent mix of media professionals and leading intellectual voices on the media.

Among the cast of characters in ORWELL ROLLS IN HIS GRAVE are Charles Lewis, director of the Center for Public Integrity, Vincent Bugliosi, former L.A. prosecutor and legal scholar, film director and author Michael Moore, Rep. Bernie Sanders, Danny Schecter, author and former producer for ABC and CNN, and Tony Benn, former member of the British Parliament.

ORWELL ROLLS IN HIS GRAVE provides a vital forum for ideas that will never be heard in mainstream media. From Globalvision’s Danny Schecter: “We falsely think of our country as a democracy when it has evolved into a mediacracy – where a media that is supposed to check political abuse is part of the political abuse.”

New York University media professor Mark Crispin Miller says, “These commercial entities now vie with the government for control over our lives. They are not a healthy counterweight to government. Goebbels said that what you want in a media system — he meant the Nazi media system — is to present the ostensible diversity that conceals an actual uniformity.” From the very size of the media monopolies and how they got that way to who decides what gets on the air and what doesn’t, ORWELL ROLLS IN HIS GRAVE moves through a troubling list of questions and news stories that go unanswered and unreported in the mainstream media.

Are Americans being given the information a democracy needs to survive or have they been electronically lobotomized? Has the frenzy for media consolidation led to a dangerous irony where in an era of more news sources the majority of the population has actually become less informed? ORWELL ROLLS IN HIS GRAVE reminds us that 1984 is no longer a date in the future.

Media Monopoly Taking Over?

Is television and entertainment media converging into a monopoly, dragging the Internet down with it and ultimately hurting you as the consumer? The proposed NBC Universal and Comcast merger has people saying just that. Sam Seder, former Air America Host says he doesn’t see anyone gaining from this convergence. He argues this would be hurting the quality of the product, consumers and entrepreneurship. He talks about his personal experience in the entertainment business dealing with large companies.

CFR, Media Control and the New World Order

How did the CFR get media control?

It began with JP Morgan, Warburg and Rockefeller and has evolved into the manipulation of politics on a global scale.

VP Dick Cheney is a member and former director of the CFR and admittedly did not disclose this info during his congressional career (go here http://youtube.com/watch?v=XOAk-7F1EVU to hear him say it).

Why would a member and former director of a prestigious organization not want us to know this?

Today, the Council on Foreign Relations controls not just the media, but the mental health industry that is unnecessarily drugging millions, many of whom will be addicts for the rest of their lives.

This has dangerous implications! The people who are setting world policy are already forcibly drugging and locking people in mental institutions, against their will.
