Episode 49 Propaganda on Overdrive for Covid and Ukraine with Mark Crispin Miller


Mark Crispin Miller taught a course on propaganda for over 20 years at New York University, until merely suggesting his students look into the research regarding the effectiveness of masks in mitigating the spread of respiratory viruses. This led to a backlash that eventually resulted in the course being canceled. How convenient for the propagandists. He joins Tom to discuss the propaganda machine on overdrive regarding both Covid and the Ukraine War.

    MY , how things have changed ! In Ive looked at ALL the data and scientists/doctors/health care / plus gates/soros and the entire agenda from Day 1… and every dam institution in our nation is compromised and full of such mindnumbed robots…the narrative mindcontrol that is so 1984-esque as to be unreal, surreal, and confirms my view that the USA is finished. There just arent enough intelligent people , who love justice, morality TRUTH and intelligence; the real virus is stupidity. The truth is not important to these strangelings which is what i call humans if they are in fact human, who reflect NOTHINg of what it is to be human~
    Thanks for keeping the Lights ON Mark! God Love you,liu

      Propaganda spewed relentlessly via social media is amplifying the hate and fear the corporate fascists use to achieve their psychopathic drive for hegemony via resource-theft aggressions, especially evident in this morass in Ukraine.

      These corporate fascists who now own the entire planet have deluged our citizenry with propaganda since V-J Day, when they brought Edward Bernays across the pond. Concurrently, they have coopted our system of public education to produce factory fodder and service industry drones with stunted critical thinking skills and a visceral aversion to all things academic.

      A compliant work force that still sees capitalism as the cadillac of economic behaviors (even as corporates use neoliberal capitalism as their personal casino—imposing “austerity” and poverty on millions) is so much easier to keep divisive, derisive, and distracted. Is it any wonder anti-intellectualism runs like a dank sewer through our nation’s zeitgeist?

      Indeed, we are survivors of decades of corporate propaganda and a coopted system of public education. When you explore OECD data and other relevant measures, you find that in the current PISA report the United States ranks 14th in reading, 25th in math and 17th in science out of 34 OECD countries. Another study revealed more than 80% of US adults state that they hate math and don’t understand it. In yet another study, a similar percentage reported not having read any printed material in the year prior. And 53% of US adults (17-55) cannot read beyond a sixth-grade level. These statistics have been consistent for years now, revealing the grim reality of our deliberately mal-educated citizenry.

      Nevertheless, contemporary research on timed IQ tests demonstrates that when you take away the timed element, most study participants score a near genius IQ. This tells us two things: 1) these IQ tests measure alacrity, and 2) all of us have fully functioning brains (barring organic or traumatic injuries). We each learn in diverse ways and at different paces, but we learn. Moreover, this reinforces the fact that our system of public education is failing spectacularly at everything except creating a compliant, regimented workforce, vulnerable to relentless corporate propaganda and conveniently math illiterate to make the corporate fascists’ economic malfeasance incomprehensible.

      We are reaching a global awareness of how we are being mal-educated, manipulated and propagandized by these corporate fascists. Look at how hard they are working to push censorship and book banning and silencing dissent. Daily, I see more of us addressing the now blatant corporate propaganda, and this gives me much hope that we are witnessing our spiritual revolution organically developing as awareness grows.

      Ingesting and repeating divisive and derisive corporate propaganda—left vs. right, conservative vs. liberal, Democrat vs. Republican, men vs. women, educated vs. uneducated, vaxxed vs. unvaxxed, U.S. vs. Russia—is the intended outcome of decades of such propaganda and mal-education. Train us to fear our “enemies,” then provide us those “vile others” to hate. Keeps us distracted so we don’t see the corporate fascists as the psychopaths they are (the Rogan/Young imbroglio was a red herring to distract us from the fact that these corporate psychopaths were maneuvering the US into this resource-theft aggression involving Russia, a country that possesses nuclear weapons).

      It’s time to grow spiritually beyond these imposed intellectual constraints. We MUST have each other’s backs if we are to survive what’s coming. Indeed, this is what the corporate psychopaths fear the most, and it’s happening right now.
