Bulletin N° 730
Subject : Propaganda by Thought, Propaganda by Deed and the “Objectivity” Question.
29 December 2016
Dear Colleagues and Friends of CEIMSA,
PsyOps and propaganda are part of warfare and, as always, propaganda is perceived as a liberating truth by some and as a debilitating poison by others.
Several years ago, Noam Chomsky wrote that most people know nothing of what is going on in the world, and they do not know that they do not know . . . . Such ignorance --whether it is willful or not-- is a necessity if tyranny is to prevail. Ignorance, Fear and Superstition are required elements for any environment supporting political despotism, and such is being engineered at present to sustain the system of warfare capitalism. North Americans and Western Europeans have been dumbed down profoundly, and an awakening will be required if they are to successfully protect themselves from the compulsive system which is consuming them for its own reasons, equipped with programmed leaders at the helm who are working overtime in the narrow interests of the few owners.
Stop the machine!

The 5 items below will illustrate for CEIMSA readers the psychological and physical violence that is being perpetrated in our name. What does it mean, we must ask, when high state officials advocate “killing Russians on sight” and why not the friends of Russians, as well? The moral bankruptcy of the capitalist class (and their bought politicians) is nowhere more evident than in the policies coming out of Washington, D.C. today. Imperialist war and Class war are a seamless historic entity and the structures which divide us the victims must be overcome immediately if we are to survive and come to control the means of production for our own, collective well being.
