COMMENT ON THE NATURE OF PROPAGANDA
A false premise leads to false conclusions. This fact lets rich people enslave you if you are not careful.
If you can get people to believe a false premise (for example, the holo-hoax) then you can make people believe all of your lies, and therefore be your slaves.
In political discourse, a premise is like the nonvolatile BIOS memory in an IBM compatible computer. It is the “CMOS” screen you see when you press the F10 key upon booting your PC…
Jews defend the holo-hoax premise because they know that a change in your mental “CMOS” will change your mental operating system.
With the default setting, you believe Jewish lies. With a changed setting, you dismiss Jewish lies.
Another false premise that rich people use to enslave you is that a money creator (e.g. the US government) is the same as a money user (e.g. a private household). This lie supports myriad other lies such as, “The US government has a debt crisis.” Or: “Social Security is unsustainable.”
Here is another lie I saw just today…
“The amount of money that American consumers pay for water is too low.”
(The false idea behind this nonsense is that people would conserve more water if they had to pay more money for it.)
If you believe this premise about Americans not paying enough, then you will let rich people privatize the water supply, and thereby steal billions of dollars at your expense.
In this world, what matters is your mental “BIOS settings” like you see in the illustration above.
Facts don’t matter. Evidence doesn’t matter. Logic and morality don’t matter. Your education doesn’t matter. Your vocation and expertise don’t matter. Your religion doesn’t matter. All these are controlled by your mental “BIOS setting.”
Rich people and their servants are always seeking to control your “BIOS settings,” so they can control your mind, and thereby exploit you. They are always looking for a new fundamental lie that will increase their own wealth, while driving you further into poverty.
Unfortunately most people let their “BIOS settings” be chosen by Jews and rich people. That’s why Jews have so much power. It’s why the gap between the rich and the rest keeps growing.
In the statements below, the “BIOS setting” is the phrase before the comma. This is all that matters. Everything after the comma doesn’t matter. It is idle chatter…
Yes the holocaust ™ was evil, but…
Yes the US government is broke, but…
Yes water rates in the USA are too low, but…
Yes socialism is evil, but…
Yes Israel has a right to exist, but…
Yes the US government must reduce its deficit, but…
Yes, Hamas fires rockets, but…
Yes “the market” is “more efficient” than government, but…
Yes we need austerity, but…
If your presumptions (your “BIOS settings”) do not accord with reality, then you will always be confused and enslaved. You will always bicker with others, and never resolve anything.
And if you let anyone else choose your mental “BIOS settings,” then you will be their slave.
For example, if you believe that Hamas fires rockets, then you will support the Jewish “victim” narrative. You can squawk about Palestinian victims, but the only thing that counts in society is the Jewish narrative that you agree with.
Therefore, when you debate anyone about any topic, think about his or her basic premise. If it is flawed, and the other party will not discuss it, then debate is utterly pointless. If someone believes in the hoax, then it is pointless to argue with him or her. You and that person have two different “BIOS settings.”
TO PROTECT AND TO SERVE (THE RICH FROM THEIR SLAVES)
I want to finish by debunking another false premise that is shared by average people…
“The function of police departments is to protect and serve the public.”
This false premise leads people to falsely think there would be no problem with the police if only the normal, decent relations between the police and the community were re-established.
The truth is that the police were never created to protect and serve the population. They were not created to stop crime, nor promote justice. This was never their function.
They were created in the late 1800s to protect the new form of wage-labor capitalism from the threat posed by its worker-slaves.
In the Northern United States there was a system of elected constables and sheriffs, much more responsible to the population than today’s police are.
In the South, the closest thing to a police force was the slave patrols.
As Northern cities grew, and filled up with mostly immigrant wage workers who were physically and socially separated from the ruling class, the wealthy elitists who owned the city governments hired hundreds of armed men (later thousands) to impose the elitists’ will on the new working class neighborhoods. This subjugation was called “order.” It was also called “crime fighting” (meaning the police fought any resistance to the elitists’ crimes).
In the late 1800s, class conflict roiled in American cities like Chicago, which experienced major strikes and riots in 1867, 1877, 1886, and 1894. In each of these upheavals, the police crushed the striking workers with extreme violence. Sometimes the U.S. Army was brought in to help crush the worker slaves, and return them to the toil beneath their rich masters.
In the aftermath of these movements, the police increasingly presented themselves as a thin blue line that “protected civilization.” Since “civilization” meant the labor-wage system, the police were actually protecting the rich elitists’ power and privileges.
This ideology of “preserving order” still exists today, except that poor black and Latino people are the main threat, rather than immigrant workers.
Of course, the ruling class did not get everything it wanted. It had to make some concessions to its slaves. This is why municipal governments backed away from trying to stop Sunday drinking, and why they hired so many immigrant police officers, especially the Irish.
But despite these concessions to the wage slaves, businessmen organized themselves to make sure the police were increasingly isolated from democratic control. The rich elitists wanted the police to be answerable to the elitists alone. They encouraged police departments to establish their own hierarchies and rules of behavior.
The police increasingly set themselves off from the population by donning uniforms, establishing their own rules for hiring, firing, and promotion, working to build unity against the wage slaves, and identifying themselves with “order” (that is, with policemen’s rich owners).
Over time the police gained so much support from the ruling class in Chicago, for instance, that businessmen personally donated money to buy the police rifles, artillery, Gatling guns, buildings, and money to establish a police pension.
There was a never a time when big city police departments enforced “the law” in a neutral and unbiased manner. (For that matter, there was never a time when “the law” was neutral and unbiased when it came to strikes and civil disturbances.) In the North throughout the 1800s, police departments mostly arrested people for the vaguely defined “crimes” of disorderly conduct and vagrancy. In other words the police arrested anyone they decided was a threat to “order.” (That is, a threat to elitist power and the wage slave system.)
In the Southern states after the US Civil War, police departments arrested black people on trumped-up charges in order to feed the black victims into convict labor systems.
The violence of the police, and their moral separation from the peasants, were not the consequences of a few brutal officers. On the contrary, they were deliberately institutionalized. They were the consequences of careful policies designed to mold the police into a force that could crush any resistance to the wage-labor system. An example was the Ludlow Massacre, in which mine owners had the National Guard machine-gun a camp of striking miners.
To use another example, in the depression of the mid 1880s, Chicago became filled with prostitutes who worked the streets. Many policemen tolerated them at first, knowing that most prostitutes were impoverished women trying to survive. But the police hierarchy insisted that the patrolmen do their “duty” (to the rich elitists) and arrest these women, fine them, and drive them off the streets and into brothels, where they could be ignored by some members of the elite, and controlled by other members.
Similarly, in 1885, when Chicago began to experience a wave of labor strikes, some policemen sympathized with the striking workers. But after the police hierarchy and the mayor decided to break the strikes, they terminated any policemen who refused to brutalize the workers.
In these and a thousand similar ways, the police were molded into a militia that would force obedience on working class and poor people, regardless of any officer’s individual feelings.
Police violence in the 1880s was not a case of “a few bad apples” – and neither is it today. Then and now, the purpose of police departments was (and still is) to keep wage slaves in line, and to reconcile electoral democracy with industrial capitalism. Police are there to enforce the will of rich people on those who have the most reason to resent that will. Today, that is disproportionately poor black people.
A democratic police system is imaginable – one in which police are elected by and accountable to the people they patrol. But that is not what we have. And it is not what the current system of policing was created to be.
One lesson from all this is that when workers have organized, and refused to submit or cooperate, and caused problems for the city governments, the workers could back the police off from the worst of their activities.
Murdering individual police officers is always counterproductive, since it causes the police to triple their brutality. But resistance on a mass scale will force the police to hesitate. This happened in Chicago during the early 1880s, when the police pulled back from breaking strikes, and tried to re-establish some credibility among the working class after the police had savagely crushed the 1877 upheaval.
We shouldn’t expect the police to be something they’re not. The police were created by the rich to control workers and poor people, not to help them.
Returning now to our starting point, we wander in confusion if we start from a false premise, such as, “The function of police departments is to protect and serve the public.”
This error causes us to live in despair, thinking, “The police are supposed to protect us, but look at what they have become! Life is horrible!”
If you think this way, proceeding from a false assumption, then you will remain frustrated and unhappy. You will lash out at the police, and perhaps your neighbors. You will be crushed.
However, if you mentally start with the truth that the police serve the rich then you will see things more clearly. You will recognize your true enemy. You will have more success at organizing a resistance to the rich.
But it all starts with being aware of your assumptions, and the core claims of those who would enslave you.
Many people like to argue. They like to accept Jewish lies about “Hamas rockets,” for example, so they can endlessly bicker with Jews, never getting anywhere.
This is foolish. Don’t believe anything that Jews say, unless Jews provide total and absolute proof (which is never).
Don’t believe professors, politicians, and media creeps when they claim that…
The US government is broke and has a debt crisis
The US government must have deficit reduction, and a balanced budget
Social Security is unsustainable
Privatization lowers costs, and boosts efficiency
The solution to water shortages is to increase water rates for consumers (who only consume 8% of the total water in the USA, while big business consumes the other 92%).
If you hear someone claim, for example, that the US government is “broke,” then do not argue with that person. Do not say, “Yes, and therefore we should spend less on the military.”
Instead, first ask if the person’s premise (the US government is “broke”) can in any way benefit the rich and the expense of the rest. Obviously rich bankers get endless bailouts, and weapons makers get endless billions. Therefore, the claim is a lie (the US government is “broke”).
If a premise feels like it might somehow benefit the rich at the expense of the lower classes (or benefit Jews at the expense of the Goyim), then you can be absolutely sure that IT IS.
Reject it outright. Do not accept any bullshit claims about “common sense.” (“It’s common sense that six millions Jews were gassed!”)
Think clearly. Examine people’s assumptions, and your own assumptions. It’s all about power and privilege – i.e. the struggle between the haves and the have-nots. That’s the reality.
