Throughout our history, on every level in any area of life there always has been some kind of manipulation aiming at achieving self-centered goals and often corrupting official systems. This behavior reflects the selfishness of human nature. It affects everyone without exception in every way. This is why we should always question everything we are told.

In this article I will point out a few examples of this tendency.

Media

I remember that during 2010 I used to watch BBC news every day for the whole summer, meanwhile I would read the news online, often from alternative news sites. I started noticing how frequently vital global issues were ignored by the BBC. One of those stories was about Russian wildfires. 2010 was the hottest summer in Russia ever recorded, it got so bad that they stopped exporting grain as millions of hectares were destroyed.  Diplomatic staff were evacuated from several foreign embassies in Moscow including Canada and Poland’s. What was funny is that the BBC did not report this very much, I think they only mentioned the droughts and wildfires once during the whole period of this crisis. Why was such an important issue like this not widely covered?

I had never really thought about this back then. Does the mainstream media have any hidden agenda when they publish their news? How impartial and objective is their reporting? Why are some very important issues ignored while other trivial topics are on the main cover?

The truth is that the media is a powerful weapon and has been used many times as an instrument of propaganda but the problem is that most people do not realise this. One notable example is the story of Amber Lyon, a former CNN journalist, whose documentary on Bahrain has been censored by CNN. In this video she gives her account of what happened:

Governments

The media is just one of many areas of life which we should be sceptical about. It is also very important to question the official process of politics and government. In many countries, especially those leading the economic league, the main goal is to govern, dominate and manipulate the public, often by any means necessary.

For example, anyone who has invested any time into investigating the 9/11 attacks knows and understands that it was an event orchestrated by the American government. A typical argument from the uninformed will often be something like this: “Our own government would never kill our own people”. In fact, governments kill their citizens all the time,  sending troops to war (often fought over resources) is a case in point. But for those non-believers who still can’t comprehend that their own governments can do horrifying things to their own people, I suggest they watch these two short videos:

In both cases, citizens were used as guinea pigs, without any conscience or concern about human health whatsoever. The same applies to government organisations, no matter if this is the FDA, NASA or NSA, there is always a subterranean agenda hidden from the public . Just recently we have learned from Edward Snowden, that the NSA, which is supposed to protect and serve its citizens, is actually spying on them. Think about how many similar cases which might be happening all the time. Most of these will never be discovered as the system is intelligently designed to keep them secret.

UFO cover-up

In 1947, the United States Air Force issued a press release that a “flying disk” had been recovered near Roswell, New Mexico. This press release was quickly withdrawn and officials subsequently claimed that it was a weather balloon. You don’t have to be a rocket scientist to recognise the difference between a weather balloon and a flying disk. There is a tremendous amount of evidence supporting the claim that we have been visited by extraterrestrials, people who have devoted themselves to researching this topic understand that. This ranges from historical records to countless videos and statements issued by leading authorities, including former astronauts and top officials. Isn’t it obvious that if, say, a UFO crashed somewhere in the US (or any other country), the government would prefer to keep this secret in order to examine the technology and prevent panic? You wouldn’t want other nations to steal the technology, that goes without saying. We shouldn’t forget that admitting the existence of aliens could have profound implications for religious establishments.

In 1938 on October 30th an estimated 6 million Americans listened to the “War of the Worlds” radio broadcast, which described an invasion from Mars. It created panic and around 1.7 million people took it seriously. It caused suicidal fear and chaos. Residents in the small village of Grovers Mill, New Jersey shot holes in their city water tower, thinking that it was a Martian ship. Some sources claim that the whole event was an experiment to assess the reaction of the public to unexpected emergencies and this was later published in the book: “The Invasion from Mars: A study in the psychology of panic”.

I believe that very few people challenge the conventional wisdom, we are being brainwashed and live in a hypnotic trance. We binge on mindless entertainment and are bombarded by pointless trivia which distracts us from seeing the big picture.

In many cases, if the US government is intervening in some conflicts, their motives are far from philanthropic. There is always an agenda and if there is no interest then there is no engagement. The news that the public is allowed to hear is one thing, the real reasons are another.

Obviously, concealing the presence of extraterrestrials brings more benefits than informing society , that is why it would be better to keep the public blissfully ignorant . And we should never forget that every government, corporation or public institution is run by human beings. People in power will often be corruptible, seeking to retain their influence and enjoy the benefits this brings. They will want to hold onto this even if this means that others will suffer. We have seen that throughout history, over and over again.
