To be ignorant is to be controlled.
Until the population has a clear understanding of the
propaganda devices utilized by the 'commissar class'
as methods of control and can see the 'emperor's new
clothes' that masquerades as 'objective', 'impartial' and
'unbiased' news reporting for what it really is, we are all
Until the information playing field is leveled and the
average citizen has access to the same information as,
say, the Phillip-Morris company, this is not, a truly free
Knowledge is power.
"A country cannot be both ignorant and free..."
If Jefferson were alive today he would doubtless be
shocked by the blandness and uniformity of the popular
media. No longer the impartial Fourth Estate of
government envisioned by our founding fathers, the
media has turned its back on independent journalism
and instead opts for transcribing the opinions of the
ruling-class elites. When information is framed and
filtered through think-tanks, pundits, pollsters, and
'resident experts' like Henry Kissinger, Pat Robertson
and noted liar Oliver North, the population is being
subjected to nothing more than insidious propaganda
disguised as news.
In recent years, reports furnished by the World Bank,
the Club of Rome, and even avowedly conservative
think-tanks like the Rand Corporation have predicted
that at the current rate of fossil-fuel consumption,
de-forestation of the Wetlands, depletion of the ozone
layer, rising levels of greenhouse gases, population
overgrowth, ruptures in the food chain, etc., the planet
can sustain human life for another fifty years, at
best, without an unprecedented shift in the way we
currently do business.
Big business does not want you to know that.
It might be bad for the bottom line.
There is a war going on, an all out, total information
war that is being waged right now against every man,
woman and child on the planet. We are subject to
disinformation campaigns at every turn, from every
pollster, statistician, pundit, talking head expert, you
name it... we are being lied to so the rich can get richer
at the expense of Mother Nature and the very futures of
our children and grandchildren.
What the hell do they care about your kids?
Their families will be able to afford the finest, purest
oxygen bottled at a special source in the Swiss Alps.
This is a very critical moment in the history of the
R. Buckminster Fuller predicted that capitalism would
only achieve harmony with the environment when it
became profitable to do so.
Information is the commodity of the future...
If there are enough informed people, armed with the
significant intellectual ammunition necessary to combat
the distortion, innuendo, and cunning semantic
subterfuge of the popular media, a paradigm shift can
occur in this culture and we may be able to pull back
from the brink of political and environmental
catastrophe, before it is too late.
As philosopher Terence McKenna has remarked "This
is not a dress rehearsal for the Apocalypse...this is the
real thing folks."
And even Ronald Reagan said something to the effect
that if hostile alien invaders attacked Earth, we would
all band together, unite for the common good and
realize that we are brothers under the skin.
A pretty profound thought from the Gipper, huh?
And guess what...the Earth is being attacked, by
multi-national oligarchies and capitalist greedheads.
When fewer than 20 corporations own most media
outlets there is a need for an 'information antidote' to
counter the reality engineers of the corporate media.
The media dominates our lives and it sets our societal
It programs you, manipulates you and limits debate.
Whoever controls what you see, controls what you think.
While you're watching sitcoms, greedy bastards are
busy destroying the planet for a profit.
Information dissemination is the only way to
Desperate times call for desperate measures...
The Internet is a revolutionary means of communication
that can decentralize power by providing everyone with
a voice. The Internet is the medium of global
information exchange and is the only place for truly free
information exchange, as it is not controlled by any one
organization or media cartel.
DisInformation will provide a portal to the emerging
radical intellectual movement flourishing in the World
Wide Web community and point users of the service
towards the highest quality, most powerful and culturally
important information the Internet has to offer. There is
a thriving counter culture living in cyberspace, a place
bearing scant resemblance to AOL's 'Mayberry RFD'...
DisInformation will encourage skepticism and
common sense. It will provide the context that intelligent
people desperately need in order to form responsible
opinions. The exchange of ideas from different cultures
and value systems will promote understanding and
create a true 'Global Village.'
DisInformation - for people who believe that what you
don't know can hurt you.
You have the right to remain stupid...
Or you can storm the reality studio.
