we are being led up the garden path my friends

what I have here are some facts… not a made up story or a distortion of the truth just facts I implore you to make up your own mind about the origins of our culture

so to begin .. Edward Bernay’s was the nephew of Sigmund Freud he lived at the start of last century he was a prominent figure in the moulding of the propaganda machine used to control us today. He was skilled in manipulating the psychological processes that effect peoples behaviour. He was referred to in his obituary as “the father of public relations” it was his belief that the masses are incapable of making decisions on there own and should be manipulated into there beliefs His view was that the general public were an “irrational collective” a lot of his work drew from the work of Gustav Le Bon’s theories  on crowd psychology

“THE conscious and intelligent manipulation of the organized habits and opinions of the masses is an important element in democratic society. Those who manipulate this unseen mechanism of society constitute an invisible government which is the true ruling power of our country”

-Edward Bernays

In the 1928 he was hired by American Tobacco to devise a propaganda campaign to open the tobacco market up to the female half of the market, until then tobacco sales were restricted predominantly to men and smoking in woman was widely regarded as unacceptable even being associated with prostitution. He hired a group of young attractive models to march in the New York City parade and on informing the press that a group of “women’s rights” activists were marching devised the headline’s “Torches of Freedom” “Group of Girls Puff at Cigarettes as a Gesture of ‘Freedom‘” it was a success… and it was a completely manufactured event that was reported to the public as a genuine news story.

It was the Industrial Revolution that allowed Bernay’s to promote the idea that a consumer society must be created in order to create a balance between production and consumption and (conveniently) line the pockets of the producers. Advertisements  began to use psychology to convince you to by there products. The general public were introduced to the idea that purchases could be made for pleasure rather than necessity or a need for survival.

According to the book Tavistock by John Coleman  in witch he proves that Bernay’s along with Walter Lipman (a man with whom he shared much of his ideology with)was intrinsically tied to the Tavistock Institute. For anybody unaware, the Tavistock Institute of Human Relations is a “charity” organization concerned with “group behaviour” and “organisational behaviour” or in other words social control. It has been instrumental in the manufacture of consent for  war’s/invasions by America and Britain.

Tavistock rose directly from Wellington House the propaganda organization that was used to alter public opinion and position the public as willing participants in the first world war. This was achieved by characterising those how opposed the war as “isolationists” using shame and fear of standing out from the crowd to mould public opinion.

Terms like “regime change” witch actual means a military take over and “collateral damage” witch means the death of civilians including woman and children were introduced by Tavistock to soften of the reality’s of war it is using method’s like this that Tavistock are able to form public opinion

Tavistock still operate today this is not just something that used to happen… this is what is happening now! ..We are being led up the garden path my friends
