In the early 1960s, the New School offered the father of the US President, Barack Obama, a generous scholarship package that would have paid for his immediate family (including wife Ann Dunham and son, the future President; then residents of Hawaii) to join him in New York City, where he would complete his PhD. He declined and instead abandoned his family and departed for Harvard University, where he had a less-generous scholarship with no family allowance.
...organise the intellectuals and use them to make Western civilisation stink [sic]. Only then, after they have corrupted all its values and made life impossible, can we impose the dictatorship of the proletariat.
1. The creation of racism offences.
2. Continual change to create confusion.

5. Huge immigration to destroy identity.
6. The promotion of excessive drinking.
7. Emptying of churches.
8. An unreliable legal system with bias against victims of crime.
9. Dependency on the state or state benefits.
10. Control and dumbing down of media.
11. Encouraging the breakdown of the family.
If there were a devil, he would want to be unknown, in fact, his anonymity would be essential for him to further his purpose.
The news media have become an unregulated supra-governmental force, without checks and balances required for a functioning democratic republic to continue. The truth about their activities is hidden behind a tissue of illusion, like wheels within wheels, because if their great power to obfuscate and spin delusions were publicized, it would fail.
It’s essential for the news media to achieve their purpose, that they blend into the background, in fact, achieve invisibility. A succinct, accurate label for the media is needed, toward the goal of neutralizing the consciousness-limiting effects of newspeak.
Neo-Stalinist Media Megalopoly is a term very dense, if not obscure, but I need to use it to convey a lot of background.
Neo-Stalinist refers to the fact that historical dictatorships have regarded achieving absolute control of their media image as key to regulating their subjects’ thought patterns, their most important long-term goal after taking the essential, more immediate step of the liquidating the intelligentsia and the priests.
The rulers of a megalopoly are the undisputed dominant elite of an all-inclusive, inescapable geographic domaina hegemony beyond the furthest that anyone can run or hide. Consider the adamantine resolve of the population-controllers and sexual-radicals that no nation, people or group shall escape compulsory, abortion-on-demand.
The current reign of disinformation has exceeded the wildest dreams of Hitler, Stalin or Mao.
The American media are poised to escape their slavish obedience to the current administration, and take their place as our undisputed masters. They only temporarily lack the coherence to achieve this, but they have all the instruments of control already within their grasp.
The criterion of success:
American media consumersJoe People Magazine and Sally Entertainment Tonightmust never suspect that their opinions are carefully and completely programmed.
Subjects of the old Soviet Union knew the official press was completely regulated and filled with lies, but they still paid attention to its pronouncements because hidden between the lines in Pravda, there were messages regarding underground currents and trends in the politics of the ruling elite.
No such wrinkle is allowed to disturb the surface of the Neo-Stalinist Media Megaloply’s “news” offerings.
“ they were either politicians or reporters, which, of course, comes to the same thing.” Ford Madox Ford, “The Good Soldier“
Among the disinformational elite, the graduates of Columbia Journalism School and other top training institutions, the holy grail of journalistic achievement is to make or break governments. An example of this type of thing, a difference of degree rather than kind, is [an unnamed intelligence service]’s involvement in the downfall of [an unnamed] government in the 1970s. (Intelligence services and news media actually have a large overlap in operations.)
This list of successful American media coups is short but significant:
Perhaps most remarkable among the true superlatives of American historyrichest-ever nation, most freedom, millions still want to come hereis the fact that the American media have achieved the most successful regime of thought-control in world history, unmatched in the wildest dreams of the great dictators.
It’s all so big, they just haven’t yet figured out what to do with it.
A disgraced Catholic Priest, who prefers not to be mentioned, once remarked that in the dregs of society where there is no room for illusionsamong the drug addicts and prostitutesthere is no doubt that the devil is real.
I wonder why so many are expatriating?
Is there a peg to recent events that was omitted?
Edward R. Murrow was a commie. He was also a pathological liar. His real name was actually Egbert. He also lied about his age to get a job at Columbia (now CBS). His fellow criminal traitor, Fred Friendly also was a liar. His real name was Ferdinand Wachenheimer. These two evil men, along with their treasonous boss, William Paley, used the power of a leftist media to tarnish the reputation of War Hero and Patriot Senator Joseph McCarthy. But history now shows that Senator McCarthy was absolutely right about the commie menace. Murrow, Wachenheimer, Paley and the latter era fifth columnists, Dan Rather and Scott Pelley, are wrong.

I'd like to know more about this, as it was my impression that it was Roosevelt's administration that installed the Frankfurt School in American universities (including Fromm, Adorno, and Maslow). Got a source?
