Nehemiah 9: 11-13
(11) And you divided the sea before them, so that they went through the midst of the sea on dry land, and you cast their pursuers into the depths, as a stone into mighty waters. (12) By a pillar of cloud you led them in the day and by a pillar of fire in the night to light for them the way in which they should go. (13) You came down on Mount Sinai and spoke with them from heaven and gave them right rules and true laws, good statutes and commandments…
When a company’s Research Department works on a new product, it usually does so behind closed doors. It is tested, modified and retested numerous times before the company will roll the product out for public consumption. While this process of invention is going on, the Sales, Marketing and Public Relations Departments are meeting and strategizing a plan to inform the potential customer of the product’s merit and why it is needed to improve quality of life and maximize efficiencies.
To some degree, this is very similar to the political world’s methodology in advancing policy change or law. Many plans or agendas are discussed and formulated secretly until a “test-time” opportunity has been advanced through vague “trial balloons” strategically floated to see if it is shot down by public clamor. If initial feedback is somewhat subdued, a larger more detailed balloon is launched for the same purpose of measuring public response to ascertain if the premise now seems generally accepted by the public and the roll out begins.
This is the stage where media is heavily employed to discuss, expound and endorse the concept as good for America, and why the purposed “change” is very much needed for the good of the American People. The most subtle and possibly the most effective form of propaganda from a single exposure is the use of misdirection as a way to impact audiences Subconscious. Like “smoke and mirrors” used by magicians, this form of propaganda requires “focusing” the audience’s Conscious attention in one place while the real impact is made somewhere else. This technique comes from omitting parts of the story from the storytelling. What is left out becomes the listeners’ blind spot, and the dynamic partner to the omitted portion of the story which the audience is kept from creating the place of focus desired. This contrived focus, is where your audience’s attention will be drawn (the smoke and mirrors). The blind spot is where your target personalizes the story by “filling in the blank”. The story’s argument is thus linked directly to the targets subconscious, based on the context in which the story was presented. In other words watch my left hand while my right hand strikes you.
When the parsed story is presented, understand that you have only heard a small part of the overall goal or intent of the desired change. Those persons who invest the time and research into these proposed plans soon discover that new attachments to the original concept have been added and the original concept and what is truly underway is unrecognizable and completed without notice. These new secretive attachments become so complex that the initial issue is lost in the greater more complex package sometimes called a “Bill” that is hastily passed by members of congress without a read and the American people are left with the burden of picking up the pieces of ineffective and costly mistakes and unfortunately include, freedoms lost.
What if most things you thought to be true proved false? What if mass deception was the true auspices under which you lived and based decisions upon? What if perceived reality was not reality at all but rather an image sent forth by those behind the projector? What if there was a secret agenda to control every aspect of your life, an agenda that sought control over your family, religion, education, finances, land ownership and your ultimate freedom as well? What if one day you went to withdraw money from your banking account and you were prevented from doing so? What if you found your retirement funds were not available when you had planned all your working life to supplement your retirement income with your savings and investments? What if had purposed to build that new house on property you thought you owned to find vague regulatory issues exist that circumvents your plans? What if you found that the senior leadership on Congress regardless of party worked for the same boss? Just what if all these things already exist (and they do) – Then What?
I ask. Would you see darkness if there was no light? Would we see the moon if there was no sun? Or does darkness have its own light, however dim, so that seeing requires an imitation of the real thing to find its way?
