It is amazing just how big and influential the 9/11 truth and justice movement has become. The New York Times, ABC, CNN, Time magazine, and other dinosaur media outlets cannot push back the political tsunami of truth and accountability that is heading towards Washington.
The official media organs of the totalitarian state are collapsing left and right. Newspaper circulation is declining across the West which is a highly positive development for freedom and democracy because that means less government propaganda is entering the minds of the people. And TV viewership is declining, too, as more people turn to the Internet for their news and entertainment.
Aaron Barnhart writes in The Kansas City Star that “For first time in 20 years, TV ownership declines.” Does that mean TV is dying? No. There are many great television shows and programs that teach, inspire, and entertain. As the former Chairman of the Federal Communications Commission Newton Minow said in his 1961 “vast wasteland” speech:
“When television is good, nothing — not the theater, not the magazines, or newspapers — nothing is better. But when television is bad, nothing is worse.”
Fifty years later, the cross-generational crusade to destroy TV as a mind control and cultural brainwashing tool continues. Reformers are aided with a more conscious and accountable tool – the Internet.
In September 2011, Minow and others participated in an event called “News and Entertainment in the Digital Age: A Vast Wasteland Revisited,” to discus the failure of the official media to serve the public interest and “to reflect upon the changed landscape of television and dramatic shifts in the broader media ecosystem, and identify lessons learned that may help to offer insight into the next 50 years of media and public discourse.” Watch the talk here. The event was covered by Katie Koch of the Harvard Gazette, who wrote:
Now, Minow acknowledged, his grandchildren don’t even own TV sets. The public has nearly limitless access to news and entertainment between cable television and the Internet. But the debate over what’s in the public’s best interest rages on, and reform is still needed, he said.
“Today’s politics are dominated by money,” Minow said. Candidates spend most of their time raising money “so they can buy radio and television ads. They’re raising money from the public to get access to something the public owns, the airwaves. That’s a crazy system.”
Compounding the problem today, said panelist Jonathan Alter, a historian and columnist for Bloomberg View, is the fact that struggling news outlets increasingly do not want to foot the costs of investigative reporting.
“Talk is cheap, and reporting is expensive,” Alter said. “The ‘vast wasteland’ now has this big ‘Tower of Babble’ on top of it.”
Other panelists were more optimistic about the new bottom-up model of news. Ethan Zuckerman, founder of the international blog network Global Voices, pointed out a recent hypothesis in the Columbia Journalism Review that says that cheaply produced, easy-to-distribute video is fast becoming “a universal human language.”
It is a great and beautiful thing that TV news is no longer trusted and watched by the vast majority of the public in North America. The cover up of 9/11 truth by television parrots and pundits has led to the unjust deaths of one million people, four trillions dollars wasted, the breakdown of the rule of law in the world, the transformation of America and other Western nations into a police state, and a world on the brink of world war III. As I wrote in the article, “The Misuse of The Power of Television In Wartime Is Itself A War Crime”:
Television has created a second dark age in Western civilization and undermined the freedom of thought, which is the basis for a free and open society.
Whereas traditional, arrogant, and obnoxious journalists have failed to challenge power-seeking traitors and psychopaths, new media journalists are serving the global public interest by telling the truth about 9/11 and raising the reality of state terrorism in the United States, Israel and the West to public consciousness.
The editors of the website the Daily Bell have popularized the idea of an “Internet Reformation,” and how it is changing power dynamics across the planet. Here is an excerpt from their larger article called “Internet Reformation”:
“The Internet Reformation is the culmination of the power and glory of Western civil society and free-market thinking. It is the apogee of all that is best in a sweep of history that began with the ancient Greeks and has culminated in the hearts and minds of millions of young men and women who industriously add to its impact every day via additional code, non-mainstream newsor fundamental scientific commentary.
It is NOT an “Internet Revolution.” The Internet Revolution is a standard “pat” phrase of the powers-that-be about the so-called empowering effects of technology. The Internet Reformation is a much more deeply disruptive concept. It is truly a revolutionary one, affecting every aspect of human society and human relationships with modern elites. It is focused around the insights generated by the Internet itself.
This concept is based on what happened during the era of theGutenberg press. Almost from the beginning, the Gutenberg press was a revolutionary technology. As soon as people used the press to print Bibles, readers began to discover that the Holy Word differed considerably from what they’d been taught by the Catholic Church.
Until then, Bibles had been fairly rare. They were printed in Latin or Greek, and copied down by hand with elaborate engravings. The Catholic Church and its important functionaries and bureaucrats possessed Bibles. Priests performed Mass with their back to the congregation. The ceremony was a highly Romanized one, as the West had come to conceive of Rome within its most corrupt and centralizing phase, and highly controlled.
But printing Bibles in moveable type changed the power relationship entirely. Now, anyone could own a Bible and they were easily reproduced and increasingly inexpensive. Almost immediately, then Bibles began to be translated into “vulgate” and eventually the King James Version (English) would become a dominant variant. But in the meantime, the damage was done. First came the Renaissance and then the Reformation and finally the Age of Enlightenment, three powerful rolling waves of free-thinking that transformed the face of human society, first in the West and then around the world.
The changes ushered in by the Gutenberg press were fundamental. The Renaissance began the reconfiguration by allowing for the rediscovery of the scientific orientation of Greece and Rome. This set in motion a series of events that has not yet ceased to reverberate.”
What the Internet has done for modern scholarship and learning cannot be fully grasped yet, as the editors of the Daily Bell point out. But we can already foresee major new works of history that will turn the conventional history of the 20th century on its head and change how we understand the political and economic developments of the last hundred years.
The positive consequences of truth-telling on the Internet for human society and global political affairs are limitless. An entire world of government psyops and corporate treason has been kept hidden from the global public. Matter of fact, entire advanced civilizations that exist beyond our planet have been shielded from public light by the U.S. shadow state, world governments and the world press.
Historian Richard Dolan, author of the widely acclaimed books, “UFOs and the National Security State: Chronology of a Coverup, 1941-1973,” and, “The Cover-Up Exposed, 1973-1991 (UFOs and the National Security State, Vol. 2)” has uncovered the secret history of the last sixty five years in American history and world history without sounding either paranoid or conspiratorial, which tends to happen to a lot of people because of the nature of the dark era in which we live.
In an article written on January 20, 2011, called, “JFK, Secrecy, and UFOs,” Dolan acknowledged the murder of President John F. Kennedy by the shadow terrorists in the CIA as a critical step towards the construction and consolidation of totalitarian power inside Washington. Dolan wrote:
“Like many people who have reviewed the life and Presidency of JFK, it’s my feeling that we lost something very important on that dark day of his assassination. What we lost was the implicit bond of trust that existed between the American people and their government.The system that had been evolved for a century and a half, which despite all imperfections had moved in fits and starts toward greater power to the people, had made a great transformation during the Second World War. That was when the American republican system government became increasingly swallowed up by a “national security state.” It did not take new boss very long before it decided to remove the President in what became for all intents and purposes a silentcoup d’etat.
Thus for good reason are we unable to look back at JFK, at the era of Camelot, and avoid that feeling in the pit of our stomachs. That feeling of loss, and the conviction that his assassination was a criminal action yet to be punished, or even acknowledged.”
In his classic speech to the American Newspaper Publishers Association on April 27, 1961, President Kennedy appealed to the better natures of journalists, and pleaded them to defend the public interest even at the cost of their careers. He called the press the keeper of mankind’s conscience, saying:
“It was early in the Seventeenth Century that Francis Bacon remarked on three recent inventions already transforming the world: the compass, gunpowder and the printing press. Now the links between the nations first forged by the compass have made us all citizens of the world, the hopes and threats of one becoming the hopes and threats of us all. In that one world’s efforts to live together, the evolution of gunpowder to its ultimate limit has warned mankind of the terrible consequences of failure.
And so it is to the printing press–to the recorder of man’s deeds, the keeper of his conscience, the courier of his news–that we look for strength and assistance, confident that with your help man will be what he was born to be: free and independent.”
After Kennedy’s assassination, American journalists turned mute. They not only let down their President, but their country and their readers. And this is understandable. Journalists in the United States who tell the truth about U.S. government policies like Gary Webb are killed.
A dark cloud of fear and death hangs over the journalism profession in the West. But that’s not the whole story. Most journalists just flat out don’t care about the common good, freedom, truth, or justice.
And so it is to the Internet – “to the recorder of man’s deeds, the keeper of his conscience, the courier of his news–that we look for strength and assistance, confident that with” the help of conspiracy theorists, truthers, birthers, and deathers, “man will be what he was born to be: free and independent.”
The corrupt gatekeepers who bought all the printing presses and used their god-like power over the media to cover up state crimes against the American people, Iraq, Afghanistan, and the world by secret intelligence agencies cannot repress the big truths of modern history forever.
A global political reformation of shadow governments and criminal media institutions is inevitable.
“It is decentralization that the modern power elite fears most,” writethe editors of the Daily Bell, “because decentralized spheres of influence are impossible to control. Unfortunately the Renaissance and Reformation were all about the decentralization of control built on the availability of real knowledge and a return to primary sources that undermined the “experts” of church and state.” They add: “The darkness is lifting as it lifted long ago during the Renaissance. An Internet Reformation is coming. It will have numerous unpredictable ramifications. In fact, its dawn is already here.”
