American Lies

  • The Master Manipulator

    20 JUL 2020 · He could make people do whatever he wanted them to. Change their eating habits. Change the clothes they wore. Change whether or not they wanted to go to war. And he could make them think it was their own idea. ------- “We are governed, our minds are molded, our tastes formed, and our ideas suggested, largely by men we have never heard of…. It is they who pull the wires that control the public mind.” That passage is from one of the most influential books of the twentieth century, and was written by one of those men who you probably have never heard of. That author also wrote that democratic society depends on “the conscious and intelligent manipulation of the organized habits and opinions of the masses,” and that “those who manipulate this unseen mechanism of society constitute an invisible government which is the true ruling power of our country.” The book was called Propaganda, and it became the basis for almost all media communication we consume today. Its author was Edward Bernays, a man who considered himself, rightly, to be one of the those ruling, invisible elites who was pulling the wires of the masses, a propaganda peddler who could make people do whatever he wanted them to. This is his story.

He now has a prestigious institute named after him, he was the subject of a recent major Hollywood movie, and his theories about human nature are taught in every public school in the nation.

  • Polio, Panic, and the The Virus in the Vaccine

    8 MAY 2020 · America was in a panic. Families huddled inside their houses, mothers too afraid to even take their kids to the park. In many areas of the country, swimming pools and movie theaters completely shut down to keep everyone safe from the epidemic that was sweeping across the land.
