We live in a world that is basted regularly in the electric media which, given a shortened attention span on the part of its viewers, must elevate and conflate in order to keep you tuned in — http://www.inquisitr.com/3916823/lena-nersesian-sex-tape-photos-video-of-youtube-star-lena-the-plug-go-viral-after-her-promise-to-fans/ — so you’ll buy the messages and the content and the Kool-Aid.

‘Scientology knock-off’: Whistleblower exposes ‘cult’ that thinks ‘children are sexy’ (EXCLUSIVE)

“… Speaking exclusively to RT, one ex-Accessory, known here as Jane, says the group “programs its members to think like robots.” She says Access works to change its members’ “points of references” on ingrained ideas around sex, intimacy and family.
Members who ask too many questions can be rebuked, Jane says.
“You are trapped and you are afraid to say anything that is seen as judgement of Access.
“It is very clever how it is done. Because it’s not like any other ‘cult’ but it is mind control, very much mind control, and it’s very much, ‘Do as I tell you although I’m not telling you.’”
“People think that they are free, but mentally they are not free.”….”

As we noted yesterday, and you likely noticed elsewhere, George Orwell’s classic dystopian novel 1984 shot to the top of the charts—or the Amazon bestseller list—in the wake of “alternative facts,” the latest Orwellian coinage for bald-faced lying. The ridiculous phrase immediately produced a barrage of parodies, hashtags, and memes; healthy ways of venting rage and disbelief. But maybe there is a danger there too, letting such words sink into the discourse, lest they become what Orwell called “Newspeak.”
It’s easy to hear “Newspeak,” the “official language of Oceania,” as “news speak.” This is perfectly reasonable, but it gives us the impression that it relates strictly to its appearance in mass media. Orwell obviously intended the ambiguity—it is the language of official propaganda after all—but the portmanteau actually comes from the words “new speak”—and it has been created to supersede “Oldspeak,” Orwell writes, “or Standard English, as we should call it.”
In other words, Newspeak isn’t just a set of buzzwords, but the deliberate replacement of one set of words in the language for another. The transition is still in progress in the fictional 1984, but is expected to be completed “by about the year 2050.” Students of history and linguistics will recognize that this is a ludicrously accelerated pace for the complete replacement of one vocabulary and syntax by another. (We might call Orwell’s English Socialists “accelerationsts.”) Newspeak appears not through history or social change but through the will of the Party.
The purpose of Newspeak was not only to provide a medium of expression for the world-view and mental habits proper to the devotees of Ingsoc, but to make all other modes of thought impossible.
It’s entirely plausible that “alternative facts,” or “altfacts,” would fit right into the “Ninth and Tenth Editions of the Newspeak Dictionary,” though it might easily fall out of favor and “be suppressed later.” No telling if it would make the cut for “the final, perfected version” of Newspeak, “as embodied in the Eleventh Edition of the Dictionary.”
These quotations come not from the main text of 1984 but from an appendix called “The Principles of Newspeak,” which you can hear read at the top of the post. Here, Orwell dispassionately discusses the “perfected” form of Newspeak, including its grammatical “peculiarities,” such as “an almost complete interchangeability between different parts of speech” (an issue current translators have encountered). He then introduces its vocabulary, divided into “three distinct classes,” A, B, and C.
The A class contains “everyday life” words that have been mutated with cumbersome prefixes and intensifiers: “uncold” for warm, “pluscold and doublepluscold” for “very cold” and “superlatively cold.” The B class contains the compound words: sinister doublethink coinages like “joycamp (forced-labor camp)” and “Minipax (Ministry of Peace, i.e. Ministry of War).” These, Orwell explains, are similar to “the characteristic features of political language… in totalitarian countries” of the early 20th century.
The citizen of Oceana, Orwell tells us, must have “an outlook similar to that of the ancient Hebrew who knew, without knowing much else, that all nations other than his own worshipped ‘false gods’…. His sexual life, for example, was entirely regulated by the two Newspeak words sexcrime (sexual immorality) and goodsex (chastity).” The latter included only “intercourse between man and wife, for the sole purpose of begetting children, and without physical pleasure on the part of he woman: all else was sexcrime.“
The C class of words may be the most insidious of all. While it “consisted entirely of scientific and technical terms” that “resembled the scientific terms in use today,” the Party took care “to define them rigidly and strip them of undesirable meanings.” For example,
There was no vocabulary expressing the function of Science as a habit of mind, or a method of thought irrespective of its particular branches. There was, indeed, no word for ‘Science,’ any meaning that it could possibly bear being already sufficiently covered by the word Ingsoc.
Orwell then goes on to discuss the difficulty of translating the work of the past into Newspeak. He uses as an example the Declaration of Independence: “All mans are equal was a possible Newspeak sentence,” but only in that “it expressed a palpable untruth—i.e. that all men are of equal size, weight, or strength.” As for the rest of Thomas Jefferson’s rousing preamble, “it would have been quite impossible to render this into Newspeak,” writes Orwell. “The nearest one could come to doing so would be to swallow the whole passage up in the single word crimethink.”
REVERSE ENGINEERING: THE (INFORMATION) REBELLION’S ONLY ROAD TO VICTORY

Here’s how you can not win a war against a propaganda and war machine that can rely on endless supplies of funding and resources:
First. You can’t win from within. You can’t change the system on the inside. It was built to operate the way it does now. So any attempt to install a new president – for instance – who is allegedly on the side of the people makes great content for bedtime stories – but nothing more.
Second. You can’t be posting your great ideas in public forums and in online discussions on social media websites and networks. It doesn’t work like that. Any such communication will result in the co-opting of your idea and your following. You don’t give the specific details of any strategy or technique that you have. You keep it secret or at least communicate about it away from public eyes. Email at least puts a layer of secrecy, although not an ideal solution when you are planning to take down an entire government for instance. Although governments HAVE been toppled largely through Twitter messaging. Lessons have been learned from that since at least 2009 during OP Iran.
Here’s how you CAN win:
You build a new society. Parallel with today’s global civilization. You limit or ban altogether any links with it. For instance, you do not connect your banking system with SWIFT or VISA or MasterCard and so on. This is one of the reasons why Bitcoin and all other similar crypto currencies will never be truly decentralized and independent. Any real crypto currency that seeks unconditional autonomy for the people MUST stay away from the central banks and all the currencies that these banks print. The same goes for any other branch of your new and parallel society. You HAVE TO keep it sterile. Allowing even one gateway into your new system – your new society – will render it compromised eventually. All of this is, however, pretty much contemplating about an utopia since a completely detached new society would have to be started away from the internet, which would seriously limit the number of people who would know about it or can contribute to it. Although there are options available that keep this utopia a potential and not an impossibility.
Setting the former aside for now, since we are going to be locked within the current system anyway for many years more, there is a way that we can tip the balance of justice in our favor.
There is a way we too – as a rebellion – can actually perpetually exist and be victorious at least as many times and to at least the same extents as the powers that want to be, instead of constantly losing battles and losing ground as has been happening during the past decades. During which the international rebellion has effectively been reduced to, relatively, a handful of pockets of resistance that never work together as a destructive force of nature. The potential is there though. It has just never been utilized to its full capacities.
The key to both that new parallel system, as described above, and a successful rebellion is reverse engineering.
We have to reverse engineer our current society and we have to reverse engineer the powers that want to be and their power structure and information and hot war arsenals.
Their system is all around us. Their news and entertainment media. Their internet. Their banking. Their military. Their clans and their dynasties. Their schools. Their governments. Their taxes. Their industry. Their rules. Their history. Their future.
What about OUR news and entertainment media? OUR internet. OUR banking. OUR military. OUR clans and OUR dynasties. OUR schools. OUR governments. OUR taxes. OUR industry. OUR rules. OUR history. OUR future.
Reverse engineering on this scale is of course an enormous task that we would put on our shoulders but it is the only way forward for us if we are even remotely serious about what we are doing and saying as a rebellion.
Reverse engineering an entire society and propaganda and war machine is what we must do. It can be done.
They have spent hundreds of years crafting their oppressive system so it will at least take the same time and double the efforts from us to merely counter theirs. Let alone topple and remove it altogether.
That is why we haven’t got a minute to waste. What are YOU waiting for?
Recently at Occurrences, I noted the continuous updating of George Webb’s previously-noted video series on the saga of Eric Braverman; here’s the link to his channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCrQ-wHKVi0JDWjQGcuoYnew.
Note how he has changed the title as progress in research was made.
Note too that he now updates his list of sources and his slides are archived here on at least an occasional new video.
Here’s a time-saving tip: Click on the wheel just to the right of “CC” and change the playback speed to 1.25x or even 1.5x. The speech is still understandable.
The video noted in my recent news digest has been updated several times; the description of how the CIA harnesses religious groups can be seen historically in George Michael Evica’s book “A Certain Arrogance”. The description — starting at the 14-minute mark — of the means for a slow and silent assassination technique was chilling. [See this as an example. ]
I’m spent a good part of the weekend catching up with the series.
I went back six days to the end of day 90 for this demonstration of how he used a software package for collaboration to document things. He provides a mechanism for others to add content:
On Day 91 (Part 1), after the 8-minute mark, there are some dots connected, but here’s the question: Is this entire series by Webb a masterpiece of citizen investigation journalism in which he has taken dot-connecting to the level of pointillism?
“This is happening on a massive [industrial] scale.”
“All this stuff got started in NATO.”
“This is not a Hillary witch hunt.”
“It’s all one thing….”
“We’re going in a bad direction….”
Day 91, part 3 puts teddy bears in a new category.
“This is a blood network…” “There’s always a big move that covers a small move.”
Day 91, part 3 puts costume in a new category.
Day 92(1): Ehud Barak ties to Epstein’s island…
Day 92(2): Was “invasion by disaster” what happened during Katrina?
Here’s the discussion on Team Rubicon.
Was the flyover used of incapacitating agent first tested during the infamous “le pain maudit” event that was linked to the death of Olson?
From 8:05 through 14:00, an explanation of Palantir, the tracking of “quantum dots” by satellite…
Is the same “eye of God” mentioned at the end of 92(2) the same “eye of God” that is being fitted into F35 jet aircraft?
Day 92(3): Is the multi-phase process what is envisioned for the military troops being assembled on the borders of Russia?
Day 92(4): He explains that the numbering system he uses has been changed by someone else.
Day 93(2): Sanctuary cities?
Here I jumped ahead. but I will go back and fill in the gaps.
Day 97(2): Homan Square? Mining.
Day 97(3): Last summary to date. Chicago, Boston, Baltimore, Philadelphia named as future centers for organ harvesting. [The same cities that have seen urban riots in the past?]
George Webb has a great series where he’s figured out what’s actually going on. This is part 8 of “cliff notes” on George Webb’s video series. This is my attempt to drink from the firehose of George Webb’s material by taking notes on it. https://www.reddit.com/r/conspiracy/comments/5qsubd/part_8_cliff_notes_on_george_webbs_series/
