Social Deceptions & Ignorance: A Systemic Infestation of Mind War on Public Perception

Updated: Aug 3, 2022

“We are dominated by the relatively small number of persons who understand the mental processes and social patterns of the masses. It is they who pull the wires which control the public mind.” - Edward Bernays

The Trickster: Enemy of the Great Work
Characters of Confusion by A. W. Finnegan

As I stated briefly in an earlier publication, The Nature of Control and the Power Differential: An Occult Science in Social Dominance, the general public perceives the world with such a high degree of ignorance, with such limited, manipulated, engineered viewpoints, biased and aligned with many ulterior motives which they are completely unaware they are even a part of. This occurs on both ends of the spectrum, the official narratives by the mainstream media, and those that buy all the alternative media talking points, for the simple fact that it opposes what the mainstream media says. Both are putting out misleading, manipulative, and sometimes outright deceptive narratives and talking points. This has caused a sharp contrast and polarization, eroding the balance, injecting a marked instability within the society and its internal homeostasis.

This has been significantly amplified by social media, which has  become, more or less, a magnet for low-level energy, bickering back and forth about political nonsense, provoking each other and filling the digital atmosphere with hatred, contempt, resentment, hostility, and all the low energies being used in the most unhealthy of ways. It has literally become a trash-bin of dirty energy from the collective human consciousness. While this is not always the case with every person or post, there are some putting out quality posts, but the vast majority of it is detestable and has done nothing productive whatsoever. Not to mention, many are arguing over things they don't even have the full story on.

Our thoughts are silent and privy to us only before we open our mouths and speak it. There is a reason for this. The reason is that we are to filter out thoughts that are not useful or cause unnecessary provocation or offense. Most everyone has some ridiculous or disturbing thoughts at some point, which they may either laugh at or just ignore.  What social media has done is bait people into posting just about every thought that comes to mind, it has instilled a lack of inhibition, in a sense, similar to those who say whatever comes to mind when they are drunk, and this oftentimes gets them in hot-water, just as it does on social media.

There is a noticeable deterioration and degradation of society taking place in the Western countries. What's worse, is that the state department and federal agencies are now legally allowed to lie to you, and put out propaganda, since 2013 when President Barack Obama repealed the Smith-Mundt Act, allowing government-made propaganda to be legally distributed to its own citizens, this can be substantiated by a little research, but one publication worth reading is the Foreign Policy article, U.S. Repeals Propaganda Ban, Spreads Government-Made News to Americans. [1] Most of the public is completely unaware of events such as this, even when its out there for all to see. Actions like these are in no way limited to the Democratic Party, but they certainly have seen an uncanny level of demoralization. That being said, the Republican Party has also been doing its part in chipping away at what little of free society we had at the turn of the Millennium, as the Patriot Act signed into law by President George W. Bush has to be one of the most draconian measures to ensure a future of authoritarian control. [2]

The repealing of the Smith-Mudt Act was highlighted accurately in a recent Counterpunch article, The Dangers of Privatized Intelligence, [3] including a little known quote by early CIA director William Casey, who revealed this propaganda campaign was coming full-circle:

In a scathing piece about Russiagate, former CIA analyst Ray McGovern recently recalled a statement made in 1981 by then-CIA Director William Casey during the first meeting of President Ronald Reagan’s Cabinet. Casey told this gathering, “We’ll know our disinformation program is complete when everything the American public believes is false.” [4]

It’s a shocking statement that might be useful to keep in mind as events further unfold over the next few months. Casey, of course, would have had no way of knowing in 1981 just how far his “disinformation program” would extend.

I will make it known once again, I side with no political party, it is all nonsense to me, and I say that wholeheartedly. We need to learn self-ownership and start being responsible for ourselves, so we can avoid the pitfalls of systemically corrupt, counterproductive systems of control which eventually lead to brute force and murder of its citizens. That being said, those calling themselves anarchists, going around destroying property, burning cities to the ground where people are already struggling, spreading immature, childish chaos in society is only destroying their own living space, and as the saying goes, "never shit where you eat..."

The Source and Sorcery of Information

Where you get your information shapes how you perceive the world. When someone listens to one news outlet, such as CNN, Fox, or CBS, they begin to see the world through that lens only, and what agendas are integrated into these channels are the corporate empires that these same people claim to be against. Most all of the mainstream public news outlets are owned by the same corporate empires. You can read about this in the Business Insider article, These 6 Corporations Control 90% Of The Media In America. [5] It is interesting to see so many who follow these news outlets day by day, yet calling out the very corporations that own these channels, unaware that they get all their information and shape their worldview based on the picture those same corporations want you to see.

There is a critical concept that needs to be understood, that the story-line we are given is not the full picture, because unless you have a security clearance, you really aren't going to understand what is really taking place. There have been ongoing wars between nations that have been underway for a long time. I have deep knowledge of this from my studies and research in biological warfare history. What my research has uncovered, the average person cannot comprehend, and it led me to realize how different the realities are than the ones we accept as the official story. It has led me to realize that nothing is as it seems. So much of the reality behind the headlines is hidden and so much in the classified realm that people do not understand, it changes the dynamic of reality itself.

There were many programs carried out by the intelligence community to penetrate the news outlets, whom much of the public gets all their information from. This was exposed early on as OPERATION MOCKINGBIRD, and congressional hearings followed asking some of the directors of intelligence whether they had been using intelligence agents to penetrate media outlets to integrate their operations within it, such as, for example, reporters that worked for the CIA:

Approximately 50 of the [Agency] assets are individual American journalists or employees of U.S. media organizations. Of these, fewer than half are "accredited" by U.S. media organizations ... The remaining individuals are non-accredited freelance contributors and media representatives abroad ... More than a dozen United States news organizations and commercial publishing houses formerly provided cover for CIA agents abroad. A few of these organizations were unaware that they provided this cover. [6] 

The former Military Intelligence officer, former-member of the Church of Satan, founder of the Temple of Set, Michael A. Aquino, wrote an entire book on the aspect of propaganda wars and psychological wars to replace the conventional battles. More or less this suggested turning public perception into a battlefield. Whether inadvertently or not, the implications of this Mind War would turn our wars away from enemy nations and militarized conflict, and instead becomes a war on the people. Such scars can run deep, cause just as much if not more lasting damage on society, but of course, one can word it nice and pretty to make it almost sound humane.[7]

On top of that, there were foreign intelligence operations taking place in this same channel, with the Soviet Union having a vested interest in fully penetrating the Western World. Even the academic and public health systems became a major target, and this was spoken about at length in a former-KGB agent's memoir, Biological Espionage: Special Operations of the Soviet and Russian Foreign Intelligence Services in the West, by Alexander Kouzminov. [8]

One noteable event that is worthy of mentioning, an event that involved a public relations firm, Ketchum Public Relations Worldwide, who had been contracted by the American government, including the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), the Department of Education (DoE), the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), and the US Army.[9]

They provided crisis management for HHS and Medicare, as well as promoting the benefits of drugs for pharmaceutical firms using actors posing as journalists in prepackaged news stories for HHS, according to a Washington Post article in 2005:.

Kathleen Harrington, a manager overseeing the education campaign for the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, said: "Our commitment here at CMS is to make sure that people with Medicare who want to get personalized counseling, personalized assistance will have the resources to do it. We are really trying every technique we can... Our motto is we're going to reach the people with Medicare where they live, where they work, where they play and where they pray."

Part of that will take the form of a traditional advertising campaign. Spots will be on radio and television, and in specialty magazines and in local newspapers, Harrington said. The agency has run one national television ad and will air another this month. The government expects to spend about $7.5 million on TV advertising alone by Thanksgiving, she said.

The ad campaign is being managed by the public relations firm Ketchum Inc. under a $25 million contract; the company has collected about $2 million in fees.

Ketchum produced a controversial series of prepackaged news stories for HHS last year that touted the drug benefit and featured actors posing as journalists. The ads, which aired on at least 40 television stations, violated a federal propaganda ban because they did not inform viewers that they came from the government, the Government Accountability Office found.

HHS officials say Ketchum got the new work because it already had a multiyear contract to provide public relations services for the department. The firm promised the new ads will not cross the legal line. [10]

Much more disturbing, is the fact that Ketchum Public Relations firm was also openly contracted to work for the Russian government from 2006-2015, and according to some news outlets, took about $60 million from the Kremlin to promote a more favorable view of Russia during the Syrian crisis starting in 2013, and this is also reflected in an International Business Times article from 2015:

The firm’s goals were to promote “economic development and investment in the country and [facilitate] the relationship between representatives of the Russian Federation and the Western media,” according to a statement sent to the Washington Post last year. The statement said that Ketchum was not advising Russia on foreign policy, particularly in regards to the crisis in Ukraine, which at the time was just heating up.

By mid-2014, the firm had reduced its Russia/Gazprom team from a few dozen to around 10. The relationship was being affected by the difficulties in the “global environment,” said Kathy Jeavons, who headed Ketchum’s relationship with Russia at the time, according to the New York Times.

Ketchum received criticism for its campaigns to help Russia in the West, like in 2013 when it landed Russian President Vladimir Putin an op-ed in the New York Times urging the U.S. to stay out of Syria. It reportedly also secured pro-Russian op-eds written by Western businessmen and lawyers in other major news outlets, according to a 2013 Pro Publica investigative report. [11] [12]

The implications of what I just revealed through my own personal research, illustrates how deceptive and disturbing those in positions of influence on media and world events, are able to so blatantly fool us and take advantage of our trust, going so far as to create fake news clips with hired actors posing as journalists to promote the benefits of pharmaceutical drugs. The conflict of interest existing here, between government contractors and corporate pharmaceutical firms, conspiring to put out prepackaged propaganda, the same PR firms who also took $60 million from the Kremlin, an enemy nation's intelligence service, to paint their country in a favorable view, is highly concerning.

Plainly put, there is a lot more going on than meets the eye to the average person's information source, and while the mainstream media is giving their version of what is, it is a mistake to assume that the alternative media automatically holds the truth of the matter in current events and political outlook. The way covert operations work in media and in public perception is much more complex than most can understand. I liken it to David Blaine's illusory magic, only this is much more complex and geared toward the perception of reality in large numbers of people. This is what intelligence agencies were created for, originally to counter foreign intelligence, but the Machiavellian type of life eventually corrupts the internal structure to such an extent that it becomes the very evil it fights. When this occurs, it has a tendency to turn against its own people, because the line between right and wrong becomes so blurred, and this obfuscation of morality inevitably leads to internal degradation and decay.

Another aspect of information sources that most people are completely ignorant about, are the many foreign intelligence operations implemented to stir up trouble and polarize the society by fanning the flames on both sides of a political argument. I was told about this by one of my sources who had the highest-level clearances in government. They even had a name for this group of foreign operatives called, "The Conspiracy." Yet it is a mistake to assume that all the details within these propaganda campaigns and divisive operations are entirely false in substance of information, because most of it has truth cleverly disguised and discredited by the lies incorporated into it.

A Case in Point: The Vaccine Debate

I can give you a very good example of one of the ways in which this disguising while discrediting truth operates, due to an area of study I have significant expertise in, vaccines and infectious disease. One side claims that vaccines are totally safe and effective, that side effects are so rare as to be non-existent. The other side, is rightfully noticing the irreversible health effects and injuries, but wrongfully attributing it to the aluminum and metals. The connections between vaccines and neurologic disease has been documented in scientific literature. [13] [14] [15].

This is where the misinformation comes in. It is not a problem of metals causing the injuries, but rather, contamination in the vaccines by pathogens like Mycoplasma and viruses like avian leukosis virus, SV40, and many other type C viruses, which are carcinogenic. [16] Some examples of publications that discuss these issues are, Evidence of avian leukosis virus subgroup E and endogenous avian virus in measles and mumps vaccines derived from chicken cells: investigation of transmission to vaccine recipients, Viral vaccines and residual cellular DNA, [17] Issues associated with residual cell-substrate DNA in viral vaccines, [18] Mycoplasma testing of cell substrates and biologics: Review of alternative non-microbiological techniques, [19] Detection of Mycoplasma Contamination in Cell Cultures, [20] Viral nucleic acids in live-attenuated vaccines: detection of minority variants and an adventitious virus. [21] The list goes on, but these are just several examples of published research that backs up what I am saying.

They used to have a name for autism and other neurological disorders following a vaccine, it was called post-vaccinal encephalitis. This was noted in one publication, Para-Infectious and Post-Vaccinal Encephalomyelitis.

Similarly, although the encephalitis following vaccination against smallpox (post-vaccinal encephalitis) is the typical example of encephalitis as a sequel to prophylactic inoculations. the term post-vaccinal should be used for the range of neurological disorders following vaccinations of all kinds (deVries,1960) [22]

In declassified Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) documents regarding early intelligence reports on Soviet activities, they picked up a Russian publication who were actually growing pathogens from vaccine material being experimentally used as a growing medium. They stated in this report:

"Notwithstanding the prevalent view that a sterile vaccine contains only dead microorganisms, cultures of living microbes could be successfully grown from many formalinized vaccines and also some so-called chemical vaccines..." [23]

At any rate, the contaminants are so problematic that the metals are put in there, not so much to generate a heavier immune response, but rather to try and inactivate or kill the contaminants, as a preservative. In other words, if they took the metals out, they would be even more dangerous. This was highlighted by a 2012 New York Times article, Vaccine Rule Is Said to Hurt Health Efforts:

"But a proposal that the ban include thimerosal, which has been used since the 1930s to prevent bacterial and fungal contamination in multidose vials of vaccines, has drawn strong criticism from pediatricians." [24]

Another way in which people can be harmed is when they are already dealing with hidden, subclinical infections, typically imparted congenitally from the mother or picked up in early childhood. This causes suppression of the immune system in which vaccines have a sub-optimal response.  When this occurs, both latent viruses in the child or vaccine material reverts to active form and destroys the brain in its early development. This can be fatal, as revealed in the publication by researchers from John Hopkins University, in Altered Virulence of Vaccine Strains of Measles After Prolonged Replication in Human Tissue, where vaccine strains of measles virus regained virulence in immunosuppressed infants. The virus circulated for several months, shedding virus from the body, and eventually traveled to the brain (thymus) and killed the infant:

In these studies, we have characterized an MV strain recovered after prolonged growth of Moraten in a thy/liv implant (pMor-1 [passaged Moraten]) and have investigated whether Hu2, an MV strain isolated from a child with congenital immunodeficiency who died of disseminated measles after immunization with the Schwarz vaccine (12), has enhanced virulence in thy/liv implants. [25]

Earlier in the publication is explained exactly what I laid out about stealth immunodeficiency due to subclincal infections causing vaccinations to fail:

"However, fatal infections have been documented in immunodeficient children vaccinated with these strains (1, 12, 14, 15).

The symptoms of infection occur many months after immunization, and the viruses isolated are similar to the original LA vaccine (1, 15), suggesting that in the absence of an effective host immune response, persistent infection with the vaccine strain can lead to fatal disease. Viruses isolated from these children could potentially represent virulent revertants of the original LA vaccine..." [26]

This is all listed within the scientific literature but nonetheless people operating under a blanket of ignorance will dismiss it as a "conspiracy theory" anyway. Even in the face of hard evidence, they ignore the science and resort to name-calling, rather than attempt to disprove the actual argument.

This shows how easily the truth is obfuscated through two false narratives, yet clever truths and half-truths mixed with lies injected into both sides of the argument, to obscure the truth of the matter. The side screaming about metals then discredits themselves and people think that injuries aren't actually happening when they are. The inability to collect data and critically analyze has led most people to simply take the story lines given to them by CNN or alternative media, as matter-of-fact.

Hegelian Dialectic: Divide & Conquer, Obfuscation and Spin.

This does not only happen in the subject of vaccination, but just about any going argument in public circulation. Its a playbook tactic, a Hegelian dialectic (problem, reaction, solution), which equally employs a divide and conquer strategy. The division between two sides weakens it as a whole unit to such a degree that  it gives the enemy countries an advantage and a better position to destroy the rival country, in this case, America. You couldn't take down America as a unified whole, so penetrate it internally, unleash a divide and conquer strategy among them and split them into many divided pieces, pinned against each other over phony arguments. Communism had a definitive playbook along the lines of Rules for Radicals, by Saul Alinsky, [27] based on earlier Machivellian approaches, such as those discussed in Machaivelli's The Prince. [28]

It is a classic tactic which works so very well. The reason for my focus on these external issues, is due to the fact that if you don't know how you're being manipulated, you get played. You put both your health and well-being in jeopardy. You are forced into a position where you can't decipher who is friend from foe, what is fact from fiction, and oftentimes will point fingers, and attack the wrong person or groups of people as a result.

Inner & Outer Work: A Journey of Balance and Foundation

It is true that most of my work thus far has focused on the inner work, because this is indeed the starting point, and I've just started in my journey to help radiate my inner light out to all of you. You must know yourself and take control of yourself, first and foremost, but as a stated in previous videos and articles, I began doing the external work simultaneously as the inner work. This is fine as long as you are putting the inner work as the primary focus, but I was able to do both, because I had so much time on my hands at that time.

I needed to understand the world in which I lived, so I began to understand it by reading, far and wide, on many key subjects which hold much relevance, especially history, occultism, religion, ancient civilizations, philosophy, psychology, even fringe subjects and all in between. We certainly must learn history, because the traditions passed down through generations are intricately interwoven into who we are as well, so there is somewhat of a blend between the inner and outer world. We are influenced by the external world whether we like it or not. By reading far and wide, you greatly widen your perception and critical analysis of the world in which we live.

While the journey to Truth starts within, facing your darkest reaches and knowing who you are in great depth, outer work is also required at some point in your progression. It is for the simple fact that we live and operate in this world, and many threats currently face our well-being, many selfish, sometimes sinister agendas are being carried out to deceive and cause us harm or suffering. This means we must study the world, which is the foundation of the outer-work. Failing to do this means we are likely to fall prey to deceptive narratives and talking points that obscure the truth behind so many subjects. Believing in some of these deceptions can sometimes be a clear and present danger.

It is easy to fall into this New Age construct of do nothing, don't focus on negative things, but it is necessary to (for more on this, see my articles, Inner Darkness & The Power it Holds: The Truth About Anger, Ego, and "Negative" Energies, as well as Thorns of Compensation: When Evil Bleeds the Hearts of the Overly Compassionate). That being said, we have to also balance ourselves out in ways that we aren't being destroyed by the outer, Great Work. Therefore, the incorporation of additional things into your life which bring meaning, purpose, laughter, are encouraged.

Alchemical Herbs and Sacred Plants of the Great Work
Datura discolor (Sacred Datura)

For instance, I am very fond of and spiritually connected to my nightshade plants, such as datura, belladonna, henbane, angel's trumpet, solandra, and mandrake. She is a part of the earth that I connect with, grow them and experience their company and beauty. The datura is the flower used on the cover of this website. I often draw inspiration from these plants by growing them, in a way that spiritually empowers me.

Other times, I do creative things like graphic drawing, and especially listening to heavy metal music gets me through despite some aspects of reality that are hard to digest. Balance is a necessary part of this mission. You will be of little use if you dive into this line of work too deeply and quickly burn yourself out. This line of work takes persistence and empowerment, fundamental disciplines in carrying out "the Great Work..."
