Dear ‘Defending Science’ Editors,
Truly, the “hegelian mind fck” is endless!
Witness the headline on your website of December 04, 2009 (cached): Senate Confirms David Michaels, author of “Doubt is Their Product: How Industry’s Assault on Science Threatens Your Health”, to Head OSHA.
What is the new dialectical rabbit hole? It is the book, the appointment of its author, the book review article by Jeff Masters, and the amazing composition based on specious connections to demonstrate by an establishment author that the only enemy of science is that other fella from whom science must be defended. There is no Assault on Science from the establishment itself.
In the list of references provided for each chapter in David Michaels’ book comprising a voluminous 1182 total citations (cached), there are some egregious omissions. The name “Edward Bernays” does not appear even once! Hmmm.
The fact that the art of Public Relations was originated by Edward Bernays based on the science of behavior modification discovered by Sigmund Freud, and was dutifully employed by President Woodrow Wilson’s handlers before, during, and after the culmination of World War I to manufacture the messianic image of Wilson as the Savior of Europe in justification for an agendists’ war that saw countless millions barbarously butchered but for which, even today, no one in the establishment can coherently argue the raison d’être that can withstands any forensic scrutiny, appears to be missing. The case study of one of the most egregious health-impacting events of the twentieth century as a direct consequence of the manufactured product of social engineering and establishment’s own psy-ops upon the world’s peoples, is omitted in favor of highlighting the abuse of too much Laissez-faire in the industry. Need more governmental regulations! Americans need more protection!
First there was the infernal terrorist. Then the greedy banking shysters. Then the filthy swines. Then too much CO2 emissions in cow farts! Now it’s the damn capitalism itself. We need universal central control under the ubermensch’s enlightened planning in order to protect mankind from itself! Damn it, we need Big Brother to manage humanity! A rather transparent use of Hegelian Dialectics to justify the solutions proposed for establishment’s own manufactured/fabricated problems to service the globalist’s long term agenda of centralizing more and more powers into bigger and bigger government, to eventually become the world government! And not the least of which is establishment’s own Assault on Science of climate-change to diabolically usher in the architecture of ‘carbon credits’ as its solution.
So, Edward Bernays other client’s abuse, the Tobacco industry for whom he very cleverly got American women to smoke, is highlighted but only with reference to a much later PR agency without mentioning the pioneering work of Bernays himself which the late inventor of the very field of Public Relations wrote about in his famous 1921 autobiographical classic “Propaganda”. Thus, of course Edward Bernays’ ominous opening passage from his own book would characteristically be omitted too: “THE conscious and intelligent manipulation of the organized habits and opinions of the masses is an important element in democratic society. Those who manipulate this unseen mechanism of society constitute an invisible government which is the true ruling power of our country.” And surely too any reference to the more ubiquitous doubt, consent, and dissent manufacturing machinery of the “Mighty Wurlitzer” which has at least since World War II, entirely impacted the health of the entire world’s peoples. Its own egregious open Assault on Science to absurdly fabricate how the WTC towers collapsed on 911 cannot obviously make it into any establishment author’s narrative either when it is conveniently being “utilized to goosestep the Herrenvolk across international frontiers.” No, that’s not establishment’s “junk science”, but its fabled Global War on Terror. The art and science of the “Mighty Wurlitzer” can be appreciated here: http://print-humanbeingsfirst.blogspot.com/2009/05/note-on-mighty-wurlitzer.html.
The very notion, that Science is always, first and foremost, in the Service of Empire is absent from the problem formulation. This is the classic example of what is illustrated in http://print-humanbeingsfirst.blogspot.com/2008/12/nb-on-global-warming.html
‘It is also very convenient for the learned to mix up the ‘highest order bit’ with ‘lower order bits’ of a complex matter – irrespective of deliberately or inadvertently – for the plebes can hardly tell the difference. And that’s just wonderful for creating clever red herrings when the latter are emphasized, and the former is ignored! Surely whatever one comes up with is always a solution to something, and that’s just as undeniable as any pathetic tautology. But is it a solution to the ‘most significant bit’? Has the problem itself been accurately diagnosed, and the systemic multi-lateral illness accurately mapped out to its very DNA? Not when the sacred-cow axioms remain untouchable! And this is indeed how one wins a Nobel Prize and lucrative appointments. [a30] In some cases, even stays alive.
To explain the commonsense concept of ‘bit’ drawn from electrical engineering, it’s like having a “one” in the 7th decimal place, and also in the 2nd decimal place, to create the total amount One million and Ten dollars, $1,000,010, and while auditing the books, focussing on the digit position which identifies the Ten dollars and not the one which identifies the Million! The significance of this is not lost to the banksters!’
If one reads the article by Jeff Masters which reviews David Michaels’ book, one sees that it is partly playing WWF wrestling in the “hegelian mind fck”, and masking out the highest order bit to falsely project that it is the “Ten dollars” that’s the problem and not the “One million” that has been craftily omitted from the book-keeping.
And so too in the following review description by ‘Defending Science’. It outright omits the reality of the facts of the matter of how control is interlockingly administered. It ignores the fact that the military-industrial-academe complex, and the political as well as the bureaucratic establishment (whether elected, selected, or appointed as the Board of Governors and Chairman of the Federal Reserve System), are all rooted in serving the same nexus of financial elite’s interests. It pretends that there is no revolving door among governmental-industry-financial-military-lobby-regulatory positions, and that there is no complicated and often opaque interlocking of board memberships and ownership across industries and corporations:
“The Orwellian strategy of dismissing research conducted by the scientific community as “junk science” and elevating science conducted by product defense specialists to “sound science” status also creates confusion about the very nature of scientific inquiry and undermines the public’s confidence in science’s ability to address public health and environmental concerns Such reckless practices have long existed, but Michaels argues that the Bush administration deepened the dysfunction by virtually handing over regulatory agencies to the very corporate powers whose products and behavior they are charged with overseeing.”
So, according to that quoted passage, there is no “junk science” research conducted by the scientific community! And the fault is in the watchdog being asked to watch its owners. The choice of phraseology “Orwellian strategy” is almost Kafkaesque were it also not so transparently pathetic. Half-truths are terrific for any full blown “hegelian mind fck”! It isn’t me saying it, but the name who might know more about George Orwell than anyone else in the world observing it, Aldous Huxley:
“Great is truth, but still greater, from a practical point of view, is silence about truth. By simply not mentioning certain subjects… totalitarian propagandists have influenced opinion much more effectively than they could have by the most eloquent denunciations.” — Aldous Huxley http://www.huxley.net/ah/ahquote.html
I hope you can reference the following pertinent works of Project Humanbeingsfirst in your future updates to ‘Defending Science’ to more accurately, and indeed more perceptively portray the obvious facts of the matter that 1) “politics out of science” is impossible when politics, as well as for-profit research, entirely funds science in the vast interlocking military-industrial-academe complex of not just America but of the entire West; that 2) all hectoring hegemons’ Assault on Science Threatens Your Health as an instrument of “full spectrum dominance” and social engineering, and not just the “Industry’s Assault on Science” for petty profiteering; and that 3) science is perpetually in the service of empire because “Hegemony is as old as mankind.”
