As War Gears Up, Newspeak Hype Increases Ten-fold As Expected (english)
10 Jan 2003
"I insist that to give such warning [against propaganda] is an act in the defense of man…I want to speak of it as a menace..."—Jacques Ellul in *Propaganda: The Formation of Men’s Attitudes*

"I insist that to give such warning [against propaganda] is an act in the defense of man…I want to speak of it as a menace..."—Jacques Ellul in *Propaganda: The Formation of Men’s Attitudes*
Today's youth have been bamboozled again; their "good education" has worked hard at taking away the language for understanding and articulating perpetual war. These quotes should come in handy for gaining insight to key blindspots which, if understood widely, could completely "pull out the rug from underneath" the entire game of Thought Control in this society! (pssst, pass this around)

"…we've been conditioned to just speak and use language and words frivolously in ways we don't truly understand…then we don't understand the impact that it's going to have on us in the long run.”—John Trudell
(excerpt: www.intheheart.net/trudellstickman.html)

“How do we come to know what it is that we think we know?”-- Christopher Simpson in *Science of Coercion* (excerpt: www.guerrillanews.com/counter_intel/science_coercion/)

"[The public asks me] ‘How is this possible? [They say] are you telling us that the people in Washington [D.C.] are evil?’…[Stockwell responds:] And I kind of flared up; Americans are decent people; they are nice people, and they’re insulated in the world that we live in and they don’t understand, and we don’t read our history…”)-- John Stockwell (www.thirdworldtraveler.com/Stockwell/John_Stockwell.html)

“In my view, citizens of democracies should undertake a course of intellectual self-defense in order to protect themselves from manipulation and control, and to lay a basis for more meaningful democracy.”—Noam Chomsky; (www.monkeyfist.com/ChomskyArchive/)
