Prescient of you as well...(either that, or the author was inspired BY you:)
I realized how the Leftists have always controlled the “words”-—in the Wittgensteinian sense-—which creates the “proper” perceptions-—when I read, “Blacklisted by History” about how McCarthy was set up and destroyed because he was exposing all the infiltration. Put out a lie in the AP and it is constantly repeated over and over-—and becomes the truth in the minds of the masses. (herd instinct is very strong). JP Morgan bought up all major press outlets by 1920 so he and his men could control the ideas given to the masses.
I studied Wittgenstein and Wundt and Pavlov.....and the Communists/Lenin and the rest, absorbed every single word these people ever wrote or said.
You control words-—and you control all perceptions eventually. Every word the Left uses is calculated in the Wundt sense. The Left had a vice on all information for 100 years-—until the internet. All info is suspect..that we have taken for granted-—we have to research everything we “thought” we knew. I think this was one of Reagan’s brilliant lines-—”It is not what you know that is the problem. It is what you know that ain’t so, that is the problem.” That is Marxism to a “T”-—everything is irrational, lies, misinformation.
Confusion and fear and ignorance is essential. Montesquieu stated promotion of fear is necessary for totalitarian governments-—Promoting Virtue for Free Republics and promoting Loyalty for Monarchies.
The public schools have got to be free of all the Billy Ayers-type curricula/Common Core. It teaches ignorance and destroys Virtue intentionally (confuses)-—it is destroying the minds of our children—filling them with nonsense and erasing Classical ideas so Reason will be removed and “feelings” will be embedded-—the proper ones, of course, for a Marxist utopia.
