Mind Control Theories and Techniques used by Mass Media

Mass media is the most powerful tool used by the ruling class to manipulate the masses. It shapes and molds opinions and attitudes and defines what is normal and acceptable. This article looks at the workings of mass media through the theories of its major thinkers, its power structure and the techniques it uses, in order to understand its true role in society.

Most of the articles on this site discuss occult symbolism found in objects of popular culture. From these articles arise many legitimate questions relating to the purpose of those symbols and the motivations of those who place them there, but it is impossible for me to provide satisfactory answers to these questions without mentioning many other concepts and facts. I've therefore decided to write this article to supply the theoretical and methodological background of the analyzes presented on this site as well as introducing the main scholars of the field of mass communications. Some people read my articles and think I'm saying "Lady Gaga wants to control our minds". That is not the case. She is simply a small part of the huge system that is the mass media.

Programming Through Mass Media

Mass media are media forms designed to reach the largest audience possible. They include television, movies, radio, newspapers, magazines, books, records, video games and the internet. Many studies have been conducted in the past century to measure the effects of mass media on the population in order to discover the best techniques to influence it. From those studies emerged the science of Communications, which is used in marketing, public relations and politics. Mass communication is a necessary tool the insure the functionality of a large democracy; it is also a necessary tool for a dictatorship. It all depends on its usage.

In the 1958 preface for A Brave New World, Aldous Huxley paints a rather grim portrait of society. He believes it is controlled by an "impersonal force", a ruling elite, which manipulates the population using various methods.

"Impersonal forces over which we have almost no control seem to be pushing us all in the direction of the Brave New Worldian nightmare; and this impersonal pushing is being consciously accelerated by representatives of commercial and political organizations who have developed a number of new techniques for manipulating, in the interest of some minority, the thoughts and feelings of the masses." - Aldous Huxley, Preface to A Brave New World

His bleak outlook is not a simple hypothesis or a paranoid delusion. It is a documented fact, present in the world's most important studies on mass media. Here are some of them:

Thanks for the post Joe. VERY informative.

In my view every person interested in being truly free needs to not only read this article but develop a complete understanding of the concepts talked about in it. Manditory reading for activists. Once a person understands the concepts and methods of mass manipulation described in this article the big picture will start to come into focus. A person with this knowledge will never again wonder why MSM doesn't cover 9/11 fairly. It will become crystal clear why they lie and distort 9/11 information and it will become equally clear why MSM is NOT going to change that behavior. Know your enemy Truthers read this article. Once you know their methods you have a chance of beating them but without that knowledge you are easy prey for mass manipulators.

I like to use the analogy of a glass fishbowl or tank, like the one at my local Chinese restaurant. A fish approaches the glass, looks out, and then is steered by the seemingly invisible glass to go elsewhere. That's what our media is like for us. NPR, which I listen to more these days than in former times, is a perfect example, as is the Associated Press, the New York Times, etc. For example, during the conflict between Russia and Georgia, the media totally ignored the all-important question of who started the conflict. NPR treats the belligerancies in Afghanistan, Iraq and Pakistan as if it is totally accepted, unquestioned. Almost never, that I can detect, a hint of dissention. Recentlly,Ari Flascher, their Washington reporter or something like that, tried to make it look like Eric Holder was a has-been, stupid, and out of the loop, and that somehow Obama was sidestepping him and negotiating directly with the Senate on where the Guantanamo cases should be tried. But a day or two later, Holder testified that a trial in New York for KSM was not off the table. There are, of course, flagrant examples every day of how the media manipulates by leaving out crucial information, or steering the conversation elsewhere. But these days it is pretty obvious what they are doing, which demonstrates that their effort to dumb down the masses is not really successful. One does have to be aware of this constant manipulation. It only takes a few facts and a few mistatements properly placed to immobilize the impact of an important issue.

very interesting..

Reading this has more or less confirmed to me that the release of the blockbuster movie "Pearl Harbor" in the summer of 2001 was not a coincidence.

Excellent Article

Thanks for the heads-up Joe.

The Vigilant Citizen

I highly recommend the articles on The Vigilant Citizen's website for gaining a better understanding into the mentality and workings of our ruling class.

Self awareness is the antidote

I would like to add my recommendation of the Vigilant Citizen a website I also visit regularly. The writer is very astute. His exposure of the hidden and not-so-hidden content in Lady Gaga's video "Telephone" was frightening and right on the money. I will never look at Lady Gaga the same way again.

"Stop buyng their crap and read a book!" he concludes. Well said. We must take responsibility for our own consciousness. The antidote for all this manipulation of our minds is self awareness and waking ourselves up from sleep. The more self awareness we each individually possess, the less we can be influenced and manipulated by this evil. Think for yourself and practise self awareness techniques that are appropriate for you.

Thanks Alison.

That's the only remedy, waking up. Looking without judgments and fear is to be more awake. Being able to feel uncomfortable with what we see is to wake up. 911truth is not for someone who wants to live in a glass house and simply pretend that everybody is being honest in their world. We tend to stay asleep or walk around in a robotic state, it's easier. We think if we can't fix very big problems like 911, ugly wars, government deception, then don't even look, just go back to sleep!! The positive aspect is that as we start seeing the ugly things, we also begin to see the beautiful! So let's take courage and keep on waking up and seeing.

Momentum for mass awakening

Yes. No matter how impossible it seems, waking up at the individual level is what is required, one person at a time. The laziness of the human mind, the fact that it takes effort to awaken, and that most people prefer the unconscious state, can be seen as the most fundamental problem facing humanity. Whilst it is not possible for anyone to directly awaken another, we can set an example to others in our own lives. If enough people do this, it will attain a momentum for mass awakening which the nefarious elite will not be able to prevent. Again, what each of us do at the individual level is the key.

It is empty to hope that the corporate and government media will suddenly discover 911Truth. They will not, because it would mean admitting what they have done - a crime against humanity. I believe they will never change, since manipulation, not awakening, is the fundamental purpose of their establishment. Rather, we must condemn them to irrelevance by switching off en masse. We must each and every one of us become our own media outlet.

Yes. Each one contributes, matters!!

Just like the little wide-eyed child in The Emperors New Clothes calling out what he simply sees ....The Emperor has no clothes!!!, startles those around him, so is our awareness of greatest import as you say. And we must not care if we look a little silly either. To remain innocent in a world filled with conniving others isn't easy. I wish that everyone would take to heart your wise words.
Again, thanks Alison.


The article reminded me of this 'viral' remake video by US soldiers in Afghanistan.


Have you heard Cathy O'Brien talk about her experiences under MK Ultra/Monarch mind control?


Ha ha

Thanks for that, we all need a good laugh occasionally don't we, with all the serious issues we discuss here. Those guys ought to be comedians not soldiers. I'm downloading the Cathy O'Brien vid and will watch it later.

National Security

Yes, and it would surely be cheaper for the state to provide funds for these gentlemen to pursue their calling, whatever that might be. Cathy O'Brien presents another serious issue though I'm afraid.

Her 1995 book 'Trance Formation of America' is available here.

She says Presidents Ford and Bush 1 and various other politicians including Cheney (the most violent person she's ever met) were directly involved in her programming, and subjected her to all manner of violent/sexual perversions. A mind boggling activity called 'the most dangerous game' involving human hunting is described in this excerpt here:

I found Roseanne Barr's introduction to her at a mind control conference last year quite amusing, and inspiring about standing up for the truth.

I wonder

Is that first video a violation of Don't Ask Don't Tell?



rehearsals for Afghanistan Idol would slow the civilian death count..


I wonder, if all of the above are true, what would be the agenda of Facebook and other social networking media. Many of us use facebook, and it would be instructive to understand what might have been some of the underlying motivations in its creation.

Google is still trying to scan the world's books into its servers(http://books.google.com), and was planning to acquire the exclusive rights to publish numerous works. It almost seems they want to have a monopoly on the world's books. One wonders what their agenda might be.
