The techniques used to sell these beliefs are so powerful and so widely used, it prompted one past master to write,
"Those who manipulate this unseen mechanism of society constitute an invisible government which is the true ruling power of our country"The methods used by these manipulators are driving the most successful marketing campaign ever conducted. It is a marketing campaign which is laying the foundations for a new belief system designed for a new hi-tech society, and a new religion for the new millennium.
Listen To The Experts
- International Freedom Foundation (IFF) - organisation to oppose Communism, and said to have been financed by South African Apartheid. Responsible for portraying Nelson Mandela and others as terrorists and supporters of Communism, and recruited many to oppose sanctions on South Africa.
- Citizens Commision on Human Rights (CCHR) - Front group for the Church of Scientology created to promote views against psychiatry and psychiatric medication.
- Centre for Consumer Freedom (CCF) - represents firms in the food and drink industry and attacks those trying to reduce smoking, drinking, animal cruelty and genetic engineering among others.
Some of these front companies appear to be spearheading 'grass-roots' movements but they are fakes and this practice of fake grass-roots has been given the name 'Astroturfing'.
The new religion is an astroturf movement. It gives the impression of being a real grass-roots movement of concerned citizens wanting a better world, and will achieve this by calling for the removal of our leaders and institutions. They will be removed and replaced by new technologies, and the fake grass roots movement of the Truth Movement and the new religion will appear to be victorious and they will claim to be free.
The Invisible Government
The following are the opening lines of Edward Bernays' book 'Propaganda'. He is not talking of an evil elite, he is not talking of the Illuminati or the Vatican or any other 'shadow government' promoted by the priests of the new religion. He is talking about Public Relations and it is they who manage our perceptions of the world and it is they who are reinforcing the new belief system which will form the basis of the new religion.
"The conscious and intelligent manipulation of the organized habits and opinions of the masses is an important element in democratic society. Those who manipulate this unseen mechanism of society constitute an invisible government which is the true ruling power of our country. We are governed, our minds are molded, our tastes formed, our ideas suggested, largely by men we have never heard of. This is a logical result of the way in which our democratic society is organizedAnd he gives an insight to why so many are helping to achieve this and to why the promotion is so widespread, as he goes on to say,
"Vast numbers of Human Beings must cooperate in this manner if they are to live together as a smoothly functioning society" Propaganda, Edward BernaysA world which functions smoothly and peacefully is the aim of the rulers of the new hi-tech society (see Here Come The New Gods) and this is also the purpose of the new religion.
