False Information, False Freedom, False Minds
Free, Healthy, Strong And Relevant Minds Require the Same From The Information Which Mold Them
What can freedom mean when one’s mind has been not just captured, but even fabricated, by one’s oppressor?
Indeed information, as its etymology indicates, creates the form, the form brains acquire, when exposed to it.
Examples of people’s minds owned by their overlord are not just abundant, they are the rule. Look at Algeria, ruled by just one party (and the military to which it is identified), the FNL, since so-called “independence” in 1962. Partisans of the FNL, and they were a majority of self-identified “intellectuals”, in France held, even as the FNL was killing hundreds of thousands of Algerians in 1960s, that Algeria had been liberated.
That general scheme holds for hundreds of regime changes through history. Actually many revolutions have to be extremely violent, because it takes a lot of energy to change minds which have been imprinted the wrong way.
It is a question of reaction equalling action. The imprinting of minds against their better interest is itself extremely violent: it goes against human ethology, it literally creates twisted minds, bent all over.
Hence Anima Sana a healthy soul and mind can be achieved only when the information which mold the mind is itself free, healthy, relevant and strong.
The Nazis did not just lose because they were overwhelmed by the production of planes and pilots of the “United Nations”, the breaking of their codes, and greater military GDP of the sane world.
(After the landing at the port of Anzio, Italy, just south of Rome, birthplace of Nero and Caligula, the Nazis counterattacked with greater, better equipped ground forces. However, the Nazis had less than 600 planes, whereas the “United Nations” fielded 12,000 planes, including fleet of strategic heavy bombers striking just 400 meters from Allied lines. Thus, by January 1944, the United Nations owned the skies, and top Nazi generals concluded that the war was lost, just from that.)
More fundamentally, the Nazis’ aggression against the world was overwhelmed because those self-glorifying supermen had wrong, bent, twisted, ill-informed minds. Those inferior minds made them weak. And this is why they found themselves engaged, on September 3, 1939, in a war that they could not win.
Thus, paradoxically, Nazi propaganda was the main engine of the Nazis’ undoing.
It goes without saying that a bent, twisted, shriveled, undergrown mind is hard to defend. Thus, worrying about false information, false freedom, and enslaved, Bonsai minds, is not just philosophically legitimate (as Socrates had it, with his “examined life”), or a question of esthetics, morality, or having a good life (or the search thereof).
Having bent, twisted, shriveled minds, from bent, twisted, shriveled information, including emotional in-formation, is also a defense issue. The greatest defense issue that there is.
And it is exactly why, so far, ultimately, higher civilization won all the wars which really mattered. Because more civilized minds are superior, and superior minds win wars. Especially the wars of survival, where one side gets eradicated (civilizationally, or literally).
“We are grateful to The Washington Post, The New York Times, Time Magazine and other great publications whose directors have attended our meetings and respected their promises of discretion for almost forty years. It would have been impossible for us to develop our plan for the world if we had been subject to the bright lights of publicity during those years. But, the work is now much more sophisticated and prepared to march towards a world government. The supranational sovereignty of an intellectual elite and world bankers is surely preferable to the national auto determination practiced in past centuries.”
– David Rockefeller, founder of the Trilateral Commission, in an address to a meeting of The Trilateral Commission, in June, 1991.
In United States, five large corporations control 90% of the media. This is a consequence of massive corporate mergers in 1980s and 1990s, which also handed over all US…
