But then, I am left to wonder if he could have imagined the way in which music composition has fallen into the hands of the very same Fascists that he warned us about. We now live in a world where the sciences of Psychology, Marketing, and Neuro-Linguistic Programming have merged into a for-hire Ministry of Propaganda, whose skills are deployed by anyone willing to pay for them. The continuing scandal of Payola alone should be a big enough hint that the mainstream record labels and assorted culture creation factories that make up the mega-corporations’ media empire will push anything for the right price. We’re at the point where the songs on your radio are highly-produced corporate jingles and the music videos are nothing more than TV commercials with choreography. While I am fundamentally opposed to censorship in any form, I do think we should know what these ads are selling us – so that each one of us can examine on a personal level whether or not we’re buying into it.
Bear in mind, that while I write this, I am eating a bag of peanuts that I had an inexplicable craving for the other day. Melissa just pointed out to me that there is an ad campaign all over the subways here in NYC from the National Peanut Board. Echoing our look at “March Madness” and March 4th/5th in particular, she just found this:
"New York to Go Peanut Crazy in March
The National Peanut Board will turn New York City into Peanutopolis on March 4 and March 5 as it introduces its newest advertising campaign for America’s favorite legume, as well as a new slogan: "Peanuts: Energy for the Good Life."
Here’s another Derren Brown clip to ponder (again disabled for embedding - Click here to watch on YouTube.)
The Killer Bees:
In the post “Crazy 88s,” I wrote of the ever-present promotion of Nazism and related it to the movie “Kill Bill.” Mere weeks after that writing, Lady Gaga and Beyonce have now released a new video intensely laced with Nazi imagery and they even use the car from “Kill Bill” throughout it. The idea that these media puppets are promoting totalitarianism is not a new one, Beyonce had just taken the stage with dancing black-clad storm troopers during an award ceremony, after all. But “Kill Bill?” Really?

"Instead, it has always been there. I found it during the CT scan last year, when the mummy was lifted. It lay loose in the sand around the king's body. It was mummified," says Professor Zahi Hawass, chief of Egypt's Supreme Council of Antiquities."
"Tut’s tomb contained canes and what the scientists call “an afterlife pharmacy,” supporting the idea that he suffered from a condition that hobbled him."
Lyrics from "Detachable Penis"??
"I asked them to check the medicine cabinet
'cause for some reason I leave it there sometimes"
"Then, as I walked down Second Avenue towards St. Mark's Place, where all those people sell used books and other junk on the street, I saw my penis lying on a blanket next to a broken toaster oven.
Some guy was selling it.
I had to buy it off him.
He wanted twenty-two bucks, but I talked him down to seventeen."

Ötzi's natural mummification and dehydration in an Alpine glacier produced a "collapse of the genitalia", which left the Iceman with an almost invisible member.

Purportedly started in 1953 — under a program that was exempt from congressional oversight — MK-ULTRA agents and “spychiatrists” tested radiation, electric shock, microwaves, and electrode implants on unwitting subjects. The ultimate goal of MK-ULTRA was to create programmed assassins ala The Manchurian Candidate. (The CIA also tested a wide range of drugs in the prospects of discovering the perfect chemical compound to control minds. LSD was one such drug that deeply interested CIA spychiatrists, so much so that in ‘53 the Agency attempted to purchase the entire world supply of acid from Sandoz Laboratories in Switzerland. In fact, for many years the CIA was the principal source for LSD, both legal and otherwise.)
"A blog connected to Bedell via the social networking site LinkedIn outlines his growing distrust of the federal government. It gives credence to the idea that a criminal enterprise run out of the government could have staged the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks. It was one of several conspiracy-laden Internet postings linked to Bedell to surface since Thursday night's shooting. Authorities said Bedell had previous run-ins with the law. They found no known connection to terrorist groups or ideologies, investigators said."

Cisco Systems announced that they will "forever change the internet and its impact on consumers, businesses and governments." So, what was their incredible contribution to society? A router of enormous data-transfer capabilities. How enormous, you ask? What number of bits and bytes could possibly warrant mention in this post? Oh, how about 322 Tbps enormous!
Cisco posted this video on March 4th (same day as the Pentagon shooting and all the pieces began to fall into place):
There just got to be too many to list. Tons of major earthquakes, the Hutaree militia thing, high-level death threats and on and on.
