WOLF GORDON CLIFTON—“It turns out the glass walls metaphor is inadequate for understanding the complexities involved in creating awareness that leads to individual and social change. Not only is it necessary to install the glass walls where solid walls exist, you have to make people look at what’s going on when they would rather look away…”

Think!

^0Americans are the most over-entertained, uninformed people on the planet.

Ignorant about domestic and geopolitical issues mattering most.

The most important act anyone can do is stop using all mainstream media.

No exceptions whatsoever. It’s brainwash propaganda.

Toxic sludge for the mind.

Voices like this are NEVER heard on the mainstream media.

The "1%" is the global plutocracy, the billionaires.

A sociopathic, puny segment of humanity.

These people pretend to honor and defend democracy.

But are its murderers and undertakers.

Gross injustice, war, grotesque inequality is their handiwork.

And the murder of the planet

Just 8 billionaires own as much wealth as HALF of all humanity.

That's 8 guys are richer than 4 billion people.

The corporate media is their main line of defense.

That's why the best way to break their hold on us...

Is to break their media.

The corporate chokehold on political information is killing us.

Save humanity, the planet and its innocent creatures.

Increase public distrust in the mainstream media.

Defeat their power to mislead.

They lie 24/7. They sell you war. Injustice. Death. Confusion.

And they never stop.

Some more obviously than others, but they all lie.

So trust no one on the Big Media.

And beware of "entertainment shows".

Most also carry highly toxic imperialist propaganda.

Like the fungal NCIS series. Or "24", glorifying DHS.

The police state.

Or CBS Madam Secretary.

A ridiculous show, like The West Wing.

Telling us the US government is good.

That the president is good...that its cabinet is good.

That the US establishment—which they represent...

has noble aims. Rubbish!

Get the healing truth from citizens' media.

Like The Greanville Post and similar free voices.

Do your part to break the power of the mainstream media.

Defeat the presstitutes. The media felons.

Become a soldier in the battle of communications.

Which we must win.

As the ruling cliques prepare the world for nuclear war...

now it's a matter of survival!

  1. Much enjoyed the article & thanks.

    Problem is: How do you convince a population that whacking cows, pigs, and chickens is abominable and wrong, when they don’t think twice about lynching niggers, dropping napalm on gooks, or letting poor kids starve. My best friend from high school always said that mankind is a cancer on the universe, and I’m afraid that the longer I live, the more firmly I believe that it’s true. The only small ray of hope is that there are a few cancer fighting cells in the universal body (you, me, and the GP staff and contributors, to name a few).

    Hasta la victoria siempre!

    EDITOR’S NOTE: The writer is a senior contributing editor to TGP.

    1. “Problem is: How do you convince a population that whacking cows, pigs, and chickens is abominable and wrong,…”

      You teach children ahimsa: non-violence to any living beings, NOT how to kill, as they are in the many christian youth hunting ministries throughout the USA. You stop supporting the cruel religions that insist on the human supremacy of judeo. christian dominion: judaism, christianity & islam. You teach them the reverence of life of
      AHIMSA…

      1. Just as trickle down economics does not work, trickle down compassion does not work. For both you must begin at ground zero. For animals this means discarding the human supremacy of dominion. It means prioritizing compassion to animals. For economic causes it means prioritizing the needs of the disenfranchised.

  2. As the author indicates, an mind-boggling amount of work needs to be done to save animals from human tyranny. And this urgent fight is ridiculously complicated by the woeful state of human affairs, including the waste we see every day in the use of our global mass communications, on stupid things or shameless lies, instead of messages focusing on ethical things like helping nature and the animals, attaining real democracy, etc., etc.

    Thank you for posting this. A very good, balanced snapshot of where we stand.

    1. This article is an apology for judeo.christian dominion. The gains described are easily revoked with the on-again, off-again gains of in dominion nations , For example. Foie gras was banned in chicago, then the ban was revoked. It we want meaningful gains we must turn to a m ore compassionate ethic, that of AHIMSA: not-violence to any living being. In India where ahimsa is understood and to some extent guides societies view of animals the import, sale and production of foie gras is banned in every state. The ban will not be revoked.

      The piece-meal patches of dominion will never result in meaningful gains.

    2. All this information is the window dressing of dominion, meant to create an illusion of progress where there is none.

  3. The author tells us that we must force people to look at the cruelty that goes on inside of slaughterhouses… He tells us that the catch phrase “if slaughter houses had windows, no one would eat meat.” is not enough. He is right to an extent… Glass walls are irrelevant. Making people look is irrelevant, so long as people believe the genesis view of animals, aka dominion:

    Genesis 9:1-3 “The fear and dread of you shall rest on every animal of the earth, and on every bird of the air, on everything that creeps on the ground, and on all the fish in the sea; into your hand they are delivered. Every moving thing that lives shall be food for you; and just as I gave you the green plants, I give you everything.”

    They may look, and then they adjust their perception to make the process of slaughter seems less sadistic. Everyone knows what happens in slaughter houses. It is is not a mystery, whether we look or not.

    All the horror videos of factory farms that force people to loo look, just makes them turn away, or seek out humane slaughtered animals. Of course there is no such thing. Slaughter under the most efficient conditions causes pain & fear, causes a living being to lose precious life. Those entitled by dominion know that slaughter is a necessary evil to be adjusted, so that it remains a sacred right. they have convinced themselves that slaughter isn’t really that bad. An article on the Huffington Post, a shill for the vatican view of animals, quotes a vegan watching the slaughter of pigs as saying “It wasn’t that bad”:

    https://www.huffingtonpost.com/bob-comis/visiting-a-local-slaughte_b_4113356.html

    It may not be that bad for animals, but it is unlikely that she would recommend the slaughter of humans. The idea that slaughter is not really that bad is based on the myth of human supremacy, as sanctified in genesis.

  4. The endless diversions of dominion… the claim that caring about the environment will instill compassion. First and foremost the issue is the sanctified and tolerated slaughter and exploitation of judeo.christian dominion… that human needs always trump the the rights of animals, even to exist. The fallacy of attending a conference funded by the meat industry will put and an end to slaughter is misguided:

    “In October, I attended Compassion in World Farming’s “Livestock and Extinction” conference in London. The primary purpose of the conference was to draw attention to the impact of livestock farming on the environment,”

    Data has shown that with improved slaughter conditions and improved care prior to slaughter actually increases the sale of meat:

    Studies have shown that when trivial gestures of compassion are regulated for ‘meat animals’, slaughter and profits increase. This was the case for veal calves in England:
    Waitrose reported a 45 percent increase in veal sales. Responding in a press release, none other than Compassion in World Farming, the UK’s largest farm animal welfare organization, “welcomes the recent uplift in sales of British veal seen by our Compassionate Supermarket of the Year, Waitrose.” http://www.satyamag.com/oct06/edit.html

    When we play by the rules of dominion, we get the expected results: preservation of violence to animals.

  5. The author cites the Sierra club as moving forward… The sierra club is a pro-hunting environmental organization the insists on the right to kill animals. Progress will not emerge from this paradigm… Derrick Jensen, a radical environmentalist takes great pleasure in hunting, as a means of preserving the wildernesss. This is the double-think of dominion, that will serve only the right to destroy and exploit animal lives for human benefit.
