These 3 Simple Things Will Block
The Damaging Effect of Mainstream Media
News In Your Life
Dr. Bernie Suarez from TruthAndArtTV.com is back with us for another visit. Dr. Bernie’s TruthAndArtTV.com dishes up info in an entertaining way that’s informative without beating you over the head with a bullhorn.
Back on October 24th Dr. Bernie Suarez wrote and published an essay posted at TruthAndArtTV.com titled, “These 3 Simple Things Will Block The Damaging Effects of Mainstream Media News In Your Life.” You can read and enjoy the article HERE.
Bernie makes the distinction that “the media” has been around since the beginning of this nation and before that too, just in other forms. And so has The Alternative Media. Pamphlets used to be as powerful as today’s YouTube videos that “go viral.” Thomas Paine became one of the first superstars of the “alternate media” back on January 10, 1776 when he anonymously published his pamphlet “Common Sense.” If he was around in our times, he might have read his Common Sense message on YouTube, wearing an Anonymous mask.
The Matrix series of movies has made the expression, “The Red Pill? Or, the Blue Pill?” a popular question for those of us who are trying to wake people up. Comedian George Carlin caustically said, “They call it The American Dream, because you have to be asleep to believe it.” And in 1948, George Orwell published his book, “1984”, which during the glow of the Post WW II era, must have seemed utterly ridiculous, but today, in retrospect, it is so frightenly accurate that you almost DON’T want to acknowledge it.
The Main Stream Media has indeed become Orwell’s “Ministry of Truth” in an age of “Orwell Speak” where nearly everything spoken is exactly the opposite of what it sounds like. Conspiracy researcher Jim Marrs sardonically said, “We’ve substituted the Swastika and Sieg Heil, for a Smiley Face and Have a Nice Day.” For a clear understanding of the “Science” of the modern media, look on the internet for the brilliant BBC series titled, “The Century of the Self.” This is an engaging history of modern public relations and propaganda.
There are many ways to break the spell of The Matrix. Last October when I read I Dr. Bernie Suarez’s media How-To essay, I wanted to have him on to share his “Three Simple Things Will Block The Damaging Effects of Mainstream Media News In Your Life.”
Here's why you CAN'T take the Media seriously…
At the top of Bernie’s website, he as a quote from Edmond Burke, the Irish statesman, House of Commons of Great Britain member from 1765 to 1780 and SUPPORTER of the American Revolution. Burke said, “All that is required for evil to prevail, is for good men to do nothing.” – Scott
