MONOLOGUE WRITTEN BY CLYDE LEWIS
Last night, I was looking for something to watch on television I noticed that an HBO movie I wanted to see somehow was buried in a number of more popular titles. The movie was a remake of the Ray Bradbury story, Fahrenheit 451.
It was being remade according to HBO because it appeals to the times we live in; meaning, times of “alternative truth and post-facts.”
Some will claim erroneously that the book by Ray Bradbury illustrated the extreme path of what censorship can accomplish.
However, this is not the true message. The message is applicable to today only because we are about to destroy the written word and replace it with the digital words and print that can be controlled and manipulated with the keystroke of a delete button.
Bradbury has said many times that Fahrenheit 451 was about the suppression of dissenting ideas.
Later, he said that Fahrenheit 451 was a warning about the threat of mass media reducing interest in literature and leading to a hedonistic and illiterate society.
We live in an age of conspiracies about a world shaped by shadowy plots, secret organizations and deals made behind closed doors. While the talking heads of an already compromised mainstream media are working feverishly to demonize anyone who wishes to expose their pack journalism and avoidance of facts, there are secretive groups who are fully aware of what is at stake and they meet every year to discuss and approximate the direction of the planet.
The real business of global politics is discussed every year during the secretive Bilderberg meetings. Security for the meetings is very heavy, journalists are not invited, and all participants are forbidden from talking about the discussions.
For many years now, I have had a well-known insider give me the lowdown on what is generally discussed by the group and I have made it a point to inform my audience on the matters discussed at these meetings and how they will shape the geopolitical future.
The official line is that the informal discussions concern megatrends and major issues facing the world. However, the conspiracy theories about the group should not be ignored because many times I have reported some of what has been discussed only to see it enacted on a world scale.
Bilderberg is definitive proof that conspiracies do exist. Politics, at this sort of elite level, is precisely a conspiracy and in my opinion deserves a serious discussion with regard to what their objectives and agendas are.
Bilderberg illustrates perfectly the idea of the World Order Group think where dissent is marginalized and consensus amplified.
We already know that the elitists organize the world for us – it is common knowledge, it is the age old conspiracy.
What Bilderberg exposes is that what goes on at endless summits and conferences across the globe is a mountain of smugness that is much more frightening because it makes very clear that even though the swamp is allegedly being drained by President Trump there are cesspools all over the world that the president has no control over.
About two-thirds of participants come from Europe and the rest from North America; approximately a quarter from politics and government and the rest from other fields.
Last year, the group focused on the rise of Artificial Intelligence and quantum computing, reflecting the uncertainty over mankind’s relationship with technology. This year the topic of technology will be magnified as the next phase of control deals with the use of Artificial intelligence and social media as a tool for propaganda – in a time that they acknowledge is “post truth.”
Their goal is to somehow dumb down the populace in a way that they can allow for the renegade style of politics to dominate in various areas of the planet.
Scandals involving allegations of the mass use of social media to influence consensus attitudes also relates to a blurring of objective fact and fiction; hence, the “post-truth” world is being used as an adjective to describe the open playing field for psychological warfare and psychological operations in the future.
There are people today that are not fooled by the movements of the oligarchy to secure their global government. It is the younger generation that are not warned about what is at stake, They have been blinded by the technocracy telling them that the world will end in some future climate disaster and how a global front will dodge a major environmental bullet.
The new generation who finds themselves in the less cohesive social media circle are now being molded and shaped through selected information. The diet of social media has made a whole generation questioning the information they receive. Some have become latter day conspiracy theorists and paranoid cynics while others have become gullible and naïve.
There is an information war happening as we speak and we are told that the battle is to eradicate fake news. This is not the case. The war that is being fought is to eradicate the truth. It is there to eliminate the exploitation of impunity within the ranks of our political circles or what Bilderberg officials call “renegade politics.”
Post-truth, which was Oxford English Dictionary’s word of the year in 2016, is an adjective defined by the dictionary as “relating to or denoting circumstances in which objective facts are less influential in shaping public opinion than appeals to emotion and personal belief.
In other words, the truth hurts and so emotional and personal beliefs are now what fuels the consensus and objective critical thinking is now experiencing a slow and agonizing death.
Collective recall is also suffering, historical recall is almost nonexistent and the mainstream narrative has encouraged an emotional response to things like race, gun ownership, sexual preference, appropriate sexual behavior, and political correctness.
Respect for civil unity is now under fire from collective groups that are denoted by hashtags and financed by organizations that wish to create division and social disharmony.
Social media platforms have now seized on the opinions of extremists and have propped them up as the norm, with the blame being placed on our chosen leadership and their alleged inability to create empathy for groups who use victimhood as a form of currency.
The era of free and unfettered speech on the internet is rapidly ending. All over the world, national governments are working very closely with social media companies to take control of “Internet News.”
Up until recently, the internet really was a wonderful marketplace of ideas, and ordinary people like you and I were empowered to share information with one another like never before in human history. But now the elite have seen the power that this can have, and they are cracking down hard.
The term “fake news” has come to mean any source that would dare to question the official narratives that are being fed to us from the mainstream media, and in reality the push to censor “fake news” is really just an all-out effort to eliminate independent thought. Before the Internet, it was much easier for the elite to control the flow of information, and now they are taking unprecedented measures to control the flow of information in the digital age.
The European Union is less than a month away from voting to introduce aggressive new online copyright laws and “widespread censorship” measures, which critics say could strangle new media websites and stifle satire and online meme culture.
Unelected European Commission bureaucrats, similar to those who attend Bilderberg meetings have drafted legislation which detractors say could force online platforms to monitor and control all uploads to some platforms with “content recognition technologies”. They are also said to have proposed what has been termed a ‘link tax’, which could compel blogs and other websites to pay just to reference content.
WeChat, China’s biggest social media network with around one billion users, has so far blocked about 500 million postings in its fight against fake news, according to a report by a government body.
Apart from blocking the posts directly, Tencent’s WeChat is working with hundreds of third-party organizations in an effort to block postings and quash “rumors” as part of its overall effort to “safeguard cyber security”, according to a report released by the China Academy of Information and Communications Technology, an institute run by the Chinese Ministry of Industry and Information Technology.
So you say – that is happening in Europe and China – this is America and we will not sit still for his.
Late last year, YouTube made an announcement that it had decided to hire “10,000 new moderators” to “flag content” and those moderators have been flagging at a stunning rate.”
Moderators have been pulling entire channels “without any advance warning” whatsoever, and that most of those channels were deemed “either pro-gun or conservative.”
Since that time, conservative videos and conservative accounts have been “disappearing” in massive numbers. Twitter is cracking down hard too. Multitudes of conservatives have been shadow banned.
Now, many people will out of habit say that the governments responsible for this; however, the truth is that the people are doing this. We are self-policing and self-censoring for many reasons.
Most of the reasons are again tied to the idea that elite business men with bottomless pockets, like the Bilderberg elite do not want to associate with renegade alternative journalists that wish to get in the way of their agendas.
In fact, the Department of Homeland Security has just announced that it intends to compile a comprehensive list of hundreds of thousands of “journalists, editors, correspondents, social media influencers, bloggers etc.”, and collect any “information that could be relevant” about them.
As part of its “media monitoring,” the DHS seeks to track more than 290,000 global news sources as well as social media in over 100 languages, including Arabic, Chinese and Russian, for instant translation into English.
The successful contracting company will have “24/7 access to a password protected, media influencer database, including journalists, editors, correspondents, social media influencers, bloggers etc.” in order to “identify any and all media coverage related to the Department of Homeland Security or a particular event.”
“Any and all media coverage,” as you might imagine, is quite broad and includes “online, print, broadcast, cable, radio, trade and industry publications, local sources, national/international outlets, traditional news sources, and social media.”
Recently, Gizmodo reports that the DHS’ vagueness is also a concern. It leaves itself an opening for collecting “any other information that could be relevant” about these influencers, and there’s no hint as to what that could be.
The database could be troublesome for bloggers and social media stars who aren’t usually under such close government scrutiny.
If you think this is Orwellian creepiness – you are right – but I haven’t even gotten to the ugly part yet. Just a few days ago a Department of Homeland Security representative Tyler Houlton said that If you find yourself skeptical of this proposal of mass state monitoring of the press, consider yourself a bonafide member of the “tinfoil hat wearing, black helicopter conspiracy theorists,” He claimed that it is all very routine, and that we should all just shut up and let them do this.
The Council on Foreign Relations delivered an Orwellian presentation recently that unsurprisingly went unnoticed in the mainstream media, in which CFR’s Richard Stengel forwarded the notion that governments “have to” direct “propaganda” at their own domestic populations.
Stengel’s personal bio website notes that he “helped create and oversee” the Global Engagement Center at the State Department whose official mission is to “counter propaganda and disinformation from international terrorist organizations and foreign countries.”
Perhaps most ominous of all is the fact that a man who publicly says that he is “not against propaganda” on the U.S. government’s “own population“ was recently named a “distinguished fellow” as part of the Atlantic Council’s Digital Forensic Research Lab. Ironically, just two weeks ago the DFRLab announced that its team has partnered with Facebook to “monitor disinformation“and protect elections from meddling.
As if on cue, and with an utterly Orwellian feel, Facebook announced on June 2, 2018, that the user-generated “trending news” section will be replaced by a “breaking news” section—which will be comprised of 80 publications selected by Facebook—that will feed approved content to users.
Facebook will essentially have complete control of the topics and narratives that are fed to their users in a clear act of social engineering, which will give Facebook and their political/ideological allies the ability to directly manipulate people’s perceptions of any event.
So, as the Bildeberg meeting is underway and plans for the world and how it gets its information are of the utmost urgency, I believe that we are now facing a form of Fahrenheit 2018 destruction of dissent and renegade political activity that is most certainly in the crosshairs of the elitists.
We should be keenly aware that we are being actively propagandized, and that our only hope is to intentionally diversify our news sources, as an omnipotent mass propaganda regime is being covertly implemented at this time in our history.
