    Conventional wisdom is based on confusion and disinformation. It has a crowding-out effect in our thought processes that stifles inquiry.

    In other words, conventional wisdom programs us to reject any information or thought not in harmony with our preconditioning and experience even if we realize deep down that the idea is not only plausible but possible. This is also called cognitive dissonance.

    Conventional wisdom is what everybody knows. It is established by the controlled media — and, sadly, this even includes most private publications and alternative websites — and modern-day “Christianity.”

    Human liberty and personal survival in our time must originate in truth, no matter how incredible it seems and how shocking it is to our conditioned minds. Governments control the public mind with disinformation and confusion. No modern government could exist for 24 hours if it told the people the truth.

    Personal Liberty is dedicated to the truth no matter how unpopular or unbelievable. Those who study and read with open minds usually eventually come to our conclusions. The problem is that people are at various stages of learning, and they must advance to a point that they can break through the parameters of thought control in America. At some point, we must have a flash that maybe we don’t know what we thought we knew and maybe we have not been getting the truth. Unfortunately, many people run away or close their minds if they sense they are nearing the truth because the truth conflicts with what they “know.”

    Digging Deeper: Politico-Corporate Media Manipulation, Critical Thinking, and Democracy

    November 13, 2013

    The following is a chapter from Project Censored 2014 written by Elliot D. Cohen

    The Myth of the Lemmings

    In 1958, the Disney Corporation, which now owns ABC, produced a film, White Wilderness, as part of its “True Life Adventure” series. The film showed lemmings, small mouse-like rodents, supposedly committing mass suicide by leaping into the sea. According to Disney’s narrator, “a kind of compulsion seizes each tiny rodent and, carried along by an unreasoning hysteria, each falls into step for a march that will take them to a strange destiny.” The Disney documentary is the source of the common belief that lemmings voluntarily march to their deaths.

    Disney filmmakers faked the lemming scene, throwing them off the cliff. There is no evidence that blind compulsion ever moves lemmings in their natural habitats to commit suicide en masse.1

    But we cannot blame the motion picture industry for such deceptions unless we are prepared to confront our own complicity in deceit. Mass deception by corporate media is possible because we, the “masses,” are deceivable. It is difficult but necessary to recognize our own collusion.

    Democracy depends on an informed populace.

    There is a lot of pointy stuff in this convoluted dissertation. Love of war? Actually the war is between God and Satan. We (homo sapiens) have been duped since Satan beguiled Eve to believe that God did not mean what He said about the knowledge of good and evil. The blame actually goes to Adam--he disobeyed willfully; and then blamed God for having given him a wife. Mankind still has an accountability problem. It is a part of his total depravity.

    Democracy? Probably not. A corrupted republic with incumbent representatives controlled by special interest groups would be a better description. The system is better than any other so far, but it sure needs some fixing.

    Jesus is the only one who can fix the problem. Most of the world has rejected Him. See: The Apocalypse. He still has a remnant.

    It is time for the second coming--are we ready?

    Even so, come, Lord Jesus.
