I have researched through conspiracies, facts, fiction, books, films, documentaries, but still I can’t be sure what is the Truth. And now I want to highlight the fact that what ever you hear, read or watch is not the absolute Truth. Always when you make research and try to solve things at the end it’s you who decide in your mind that what is the Truth and what is the lie. So I want to tell you, that this blog is mainly my own journey to find the Truth and if someone else is also interested about it, that’s ok. But if I had only one reader I would be satisfied.
So let’s continue with propaganda and why you should think yourself and not let others think for you. Here’s Carolynn Hamlett’s article about propaganda:
Propaganda, A Tool of Mind Control
A note: Propaganda is still very much a mind control tool in the hands of the Illuminati globalists. You may want to research and discover just who owns and controls ALL of the mainstream media sources in the United States. This includes Hollywood, TV, news sources, and publishing houses. Even the majority of commercials you see on national television are those of companies owned and run by this same group. They not only promote their products, but so often with it, they slyly promote through visual and audible propaganda, their ideas which will influence your thoughts and actions to follow their slow, but steady leading to not think, but to fall in line with their message, adopt it as your own and act on it. You may think that you know something, but what you ‘know’ is only what was fed to you. Maybe it was a lie. Even a half truth is a lie; even a message taken out of context can make it a lie. You may think that you have your own opinion, but how could you if “they” fed you ‘your’ opinion?
Sadly, even the American foreign policy is being shaped by propaganda through Hollywood, television, publishing houses, newspapers and even through what you may deem as simple commercials on television.
Think about it!
“There is a difference–a big difference–between education and propaganda.
Education shows you how to think. Propaganda tells you what to think. Good educators present all sides of an issue and encourage discussion. Propagandists relentlessly force you to hear their view and discourage discussion. Often their real motives are not apparent. They sift the facts, exploiting the useful ones and concealing the others. They also distort and twist facts, specializing in lies and half-truths. Your emotions, not your logical thinking abilities, are their target.
The propagandist makes sure that his message appears to be the right and moral one and that it gives you a sense of importance and belonging if you follow it.”

How does propaganda work?
DO YOUR OWN RESEARCH
The handiest trick of the propagandist is the use of outright lies.
Another very successful tactic of propaganda is generalization. Generalizations tend to obscure important facts about the real issues in question, and they are frequently used to demean entire groups of people.
Some people insult those who disagree with them by questioning character or motives instead of focusing on the facts. Name-calling slaps a negative, easy-to-remember label onto a person, a group, or an idea. The name-caller hopes that the label will stick. If people reject the person or the idea on the basis of the negative label instead of weighing the evidence for themselves, the name-caller’s strategy has worked.
See this article by “Jolly Roger” : “Conspiracy Theorists” written in January of 2005.
The Institute for Propaganda Analysis notes “bad names have played a tremendously powerful role in the history of the world and in our own individual development. They have ruined reputations,…sent (people) to prison cells, and made men mad enough to enter battle and slaughter their fellowmen.”
Even though feelings might be irrelevant when it comes to factual claims or the logic of an argument, they play a crucial role in persuasion. Emotional appeals are fabricated by practiced publicists, who play on feelings as skillfully as a virtuoso plays the piano.For example, fear is an emotion that can becloud judgment. And as in the case of envy, fear can be played upon.Hatred is a strong emotion exploited by propagandists. Loaded language is particularly effective in triggering it. There seems to be a nearly endless supply of nasty words that promote and exploit hatred toward particular racial, ethnic, religious (and political ) groups.Some propagandists play on pride. Often we can spot appeals to pride by looking for such key phrases as: “Any intelligent person knows that…” or, “A person with your education can’t help but see that…” A reverse appeal to pride plays on fear of seeming stupid. Professionals in persuasion are well aware of that.Slogans and Symbols
Slogans are vague statements that are typically used to express positions or goals. Because of their vagueness, they are easy to agree with.For example, in times of national crisis or conflict, demagogues may use such slogans as “My country, right or wrong,” or “Freedom or Death.” But do most people carefully analyze the real issues involved in the crisis or conflict? Or do they just accept what they are told?In writing about World War I, Winston Churchill observed: “Only a signal is needed to transform these multitudes of peaceful peasants and workman into the mighty hosts which will tear each other to pieces.” He further observed that when told what to do, most people responded unthinkingly.The propagandist also has a very wide range of symbols and signs with which to convey his message. (Such as a flag, an emblem, a particular image etc.)
