Dissenting voices were stilled, either by agreement with the press or by the persuasive action of the agents of the Department of Justice. Intellectual and emotional bombardment aroused Americans to a pitch of enthusiasm. The bombardment came at people from all sides – advertisements, news, volunteer speakers, posters, schools, theaters; millions of homes displayed service flags. The war aims and ideals were continually projected to the eyes and ears of the populace.

These high-pressure methods were new at the time, but have become usual since then. The conscious and intelligent manipulation of the organised 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 government. We are governed, our minds are moulded,our tastes formed, our ideas suggested, largely by men we have never heard of.

This is the logical result of the way in which our democratic society is organised. We live in disgusting times. We need to challenge them at every turn and in the end their is only one way to defeat these parasites – dont feed the corporate machine.

Turn off the mainstream media, dont shop at walmart or the Gap, bank at credit unions not the big banks, dont eat McDonalds – instead eat at the local ma and pa place, stop buying goods made overseas – it cuts into their profits here and forces them to employ local labour, and always refuse the rush to war!

They wouldn’t make it past “oligarch,” “omnipresent,” or “entities. But I would imagine that those with the edcational background to read it would already believe it without being convinced.

Valenzuela speaks the truth. I have been reading other articles of his, especially his three part series on Iraq and his take on the military industrial complex. Miracle, because regardless of which ever religous ethos any citizen clings to, they all “believe” those little pieces of paper with ink on them are worth something.

Drug, because everyone I know, including myself, is addicted to it. Try living without it and see how far you get. Groucho Marx: Politics is the art of looking for trouble, finding it everywhere, diagnosing it incorrectly and applying the wrong remedies.

Cardinal de Retz, 18th cent. George Mason: When the same man, or set of men, holds the sword and the purse, there is an end of liberty. David Hume, British Writer-philosopher: It is seldom that any freedom is lost all at once. Edmund Burke, British Statesman: The true danger is when liberty is nibbled away, for expedience, and by parts. All of the foregoing very aptly summarize what has been going on in this country since Those who will not learn from history are condemned to repeat it.

But I don’t think it is just our freedom and democracy that we are losing, but it is also a regression of civilization. Think about it. Everything seems to be in favor of violence,from the toys available for children to movies, music and the way we treat other countries. It seems to me to be always this tough in your face attitude. That kind of crap doesn’t enhance civilization. Instead of spending all this money on a war with Iraq, we should be spending it on humanitarian efforts.

We all must take a stand and help in any way we can to get these Republicans defeated in the next election. I would like to see a Dem. Then I would like to see these criminals get prosecuted. I saw a short movie clip of our marines executing an Iraqi. Now you know that will never be shown in the U.

Robert Fisk has a website that is full of pictures of Iraqi wounded and dead. The U. But you will not see or hear about any of this on tv or radio. It may already be too late, but we cannot just give up. A lot of our veterans of the past have actually fought for our freedoms that we have.

It would be a great insult to the men and women who died so we could live in freedom,for us to just give up. We must do anything and everything to bring about a change. The Republican view is that it is a ME world. Everything for ME, and to hell with you.

How wrong they are. They don’t think they have to share this planet with everyone else. That mindset is so evident in Smirk. He didn’t intercede in any death penalty while governor of Texas.

Now the killing of civilians in Iraq. Threatening the world to do what he wants. He is truly a sorry, sadistic, immature little man. Ok, it is a small town of folks up in the high sierra. People have moved here for many reasons.

Not the least of which is to get away from all of that stuff. We all have a degree Of some kind. But we do what we want to do and think the way we want. Gov’t really is not part of our lives in the least, except for snow plows. We are all neigbors and we treat each other that way. People up here respect every opinion that others have and do not criticize, other than say well that is bullshit and ask why did you say that.

Regards S. Our nation is being pillaged in front of our eyes, the government is now in the hands of our masters. An enslaved population is far easier to manipulate. Impoverishing a nation accomplishes several things but the worst is the psychological numbing. The so-called threat of terrorism HAS been an effective drug.

This coupled with thought impoverishment examined in this article and the availability of real goods may create a sort of lawless state. Feeling threatened, many will beg the government to protect them effectively creating a police state.

Will you or I be complicit in this coming act of treason against the constitution? What ARE we to do about? Besides turning off the tv, we can read, read, write, write and fight, fight, every step of the way. Valenzuela was reading my mind and put it into print. Since then, we have seen our country following in fear behind the Bush administration’s quest for world domination.

We’ve been appalled and angry to have our experience used as an excuse to violate the rights of our fellow human beings, to take away our constitutional rights in the country, and to bully us into submission for an administration that has and never will have our best interests at heart. I am forever grateful for websites like this one that allow freedom of thought and give us reasons to keep going on with our struggles.

Here in Rhode Island we have companies that have not bothered to give their employees raises in over four years due to bogus union disputes namely the Providence Journal Company that I was once employed by and not one of these people even bother to question why they are working themselves to the bone for little or nothing.

I am a supporter of this website. Much love, [ To reply to this message, you must first logon or register ] Re: Manuel Valenzuela: ‘The stupefaction of a nation’ Score: 1 by gladiator on Friday, December 12 EST User Info I, too, really like this article, very well written using wonderful adjectives, never used by the ignorant media, to define this catastrophic time in America’s life.

I ended my working life of 38 years by being fired by a big HMO that I worked for 5 years ago. I began to question stupid policies, blatant discriminatory practices, and even dared talk back to a company CEO who said my notes were too detailed. This was delivered to me by one of his subordinates. I told “subordinate” to tell “CEO” to come tell me himself what he had a problem with.

He apparently didn’t too afraid and I was spared I knew my number would be up soon, but I figured the cost for freedom was well worth it! What’s my point? As many of you already know, the big fascist take over began in earnest, again, about 20 years ago.

Our local newspapers, owned by Dean Singleton bye the by, has barely any news because there are pages and pages and pages of ADs! Any time there is a snowstorm anywhere, the networks go nuts over them The light that once shined so bright has disappeared in a fictional world of fright.

There coexists a nonfictional world of fright for thinking folks who aren’t attached to strings. This morning, for a time, I couldn’t access smirkingchimp. My not-so-paranoid flash of fear had reasonable cause.
