The Myths That Control Us

Myths prevent people, especially Americans, from discerning and even reaching for the truth.  Myths are created by and used by the elite power structure to control the masses.  It works because these myths create a sense of power in the individual through his/her connection to the group, even though in reality, this faith-based belief in the myth actually neuters any power the individual once possessed. 

Let’s look at the two biggest and most powerful myths used to control Americans. 

Myth number one—we are a democracy.

First of all, America is a constitutional republic, not a democracy.  Our founding fathers did not create a government of winner take all, 51% rules over the other 49%--this is a lie repeated and repeated by the people who benefit (politicians and press—and those who own them).  The reason this myth is so controlling and destructive to America, is that a two-headed monster dictates all policy and all debate.  Two teams continually battle for control of the system and every citizen, whether they vote or not, is drawn into the false divide and sides with one or the other of the teams.  When one team has worn out its welcome, the voters replace it with the other team. 

Battle lines are continually drawn over “morality”, taxation, military expenditures and so on.  Pundits on both sides ceaselessly promote and oppose the so-called positions of the two teams.  Money is raised by grass roots organizations on both sides.  People actually stake their manhood/womanhood on their support and belief in their team.   

But, for all of the open sniping, both teams are owned by the same owner.  The teams dine together.  A massive amount of money is given to each side by the same corporations and banks.  No matter which team is currently in power, an agenda of increasing federal control over individual liberties always presses forward.  An agenda of corporate legislation always presses forward.  An agenda of increasing the power of the unitary executive always presses forward.  An agenda of war and surrendering sovereignty to a world authority always presses forward. 

Why?  Because of continuity of government.  Because of state secrets.  Because the CFR and Tri-Lateral Commission members dictate all policy.  Because a British secret society formed the CIA and the stifling intelligence apparatus that rules all politics in the name of the owners.  Because the president is a CEO of the Corporation of Washington DC.  He is not the owner, as the democracy myth would have us believe, he is the starting quarterback.  He gets his picture taken, he speaks to the reporters, the people worship him or boo him, but he doesn’t call the plays.  He is just a player.   

Myth number two—we have a free press.

No, we don’t. We never have had a free press.  But, now it is more obvious than ever.  Five international corporations own everything that is seen on TV and almost everything heard on radio.  The newspapers are owned by corporations.  Every wire article comes from AP or Reuters and the Rothschilds banking fortune owns them both.  Editors and many of the most influential writers are either directly paid for or covertly controlled by the CIA.  Operation Mockingbird, a CIA plan, created this complete takeover. 

Because of the iron grip of corporate/banker control over the American press and media, people are told continuously that they have a free press and that they are the freest people in the world.  This is programming. This is fostering a myth.  It is not true.  In 2008 the United States was ranked 31st in the world in press freedom, tied with Greece.  Pay off your house and fall behind on property taxes and then see who owns your house and how free you are.  The Federal Reserve Bank is private and the IRS collects an unconstitutional tax on your income.  The IRS then gives every penny, every year to the private Federal Reserve Bank for interest on a loan.  When is the last time you heard your free press tell you about this extortion of trillions of dollars from the American people? 

The press criticizes or praises one or the other of the heads of the two-headed monster that is our current system of government.  However, the press never questions the legitimacy of the two-headed monster.  The press never questions the legitimacy of elections run by the two-headed monster and counted on electronic machines that are proven to be easily hacked and can be pre-programmed to game a result.  The press never questions the ownership of the two political teams, because the press is owned by the very same owner.         

These two myths are responsible for a bevy of other myths that each help to enslave and truncate the enlightenment of all Americans.  The myth of the benign and righteous government.  The myth of spreading democracy through military power.  The myth of organized international terrorists bent on the destruction of America.  The myth of man-made global warming and imminent catastrophe.  The myth of American supremacy, when in fact, America is owned by England and Israel, and is used as a military enforcer for foreign financial oligarchs.  The list goes on and on.  I’m quite sure everyone reading this can think of several controlling myths that I have left out. 

We the people are being programmed by a television and a press.  We are lied to and misled by a massive and completely unaccountable federal government.  Even many of the so-called alternative news outlets, provide some fashion of official propaganda.  Only through cross-checking a broad spectrum of sources can one discern a portion of the truth.  It is a formidable task to be sure.  However, the alternative is faith based acceptance of official truth, as told to us by the government and repeated by the controlled, corporate press.  And this official truth is plainly and simply, myth.
