The power of propaganda through the ages
By Mike Smith
18th of July 2012
Daily, as again recently, we have seen the world fawn over a convicted terrorist like Mandela, turning him into Saint, singing his praises and turning him into a demi-god.
But slowly we have seen a resistance to this belief. Every day people are waking up to the truth, because the corruption and the misrule of the ANC are just impossible to hide.
Some observers (on the left and the right) might even be so bold as to finally admit that we “rêssists” were right all along. That the ANC is indeed a useless kleptocracy or better a narco-mafia-kleptocracy.
For many people it is difficult to even comprehend why black people still vote for the ANC.
Liberals tell us we should give it time. That the ANC is a young democracy and that it will all come right in the end when the “Rainbow” emerges behind the clouds of darkness.
Fact is that they have a “Belief” a “Dream” a “Fantasy” a “Pseudo religious conviction” in what “can be” and what “could have been”…”The Rainbow Nation”…
But the truth is that the truth will always be the truth. No matter what your political or religious leanings are.
The problem is that people have difficulty to let go of hundreds of years of indoctrination and propaganda.
For hundreds of years people believed that the gods Thor and Jupiter caused thunder and lightning. Until Benjamin Franklin flew a kite into a storm and explained electricity in weather and meteorology to us.
Today we know the difference between science and myth. Today we know what causes thunder and lighting and that a rainbow is merely a Newtonian prism made up of water droplets reflecting the colours of the visible spectrum and that there is no pot of gold at the end of it.
There is nothing mythical or sinister about it. It is Science.
But although we know the truth, we have difficulty to let go of past believes, fantasies and bullshit.
Today we still glorify the God of Thunder every day on Thursday on the Gregorian calendar. Why? Because of the power of past propaganda.
Let me explain.
In the 16th and 17th century brilliant scientists like Copernicus, Kepler and Galileo Galilei proved without a doubt that the earth was not the centre of our solar system. That the earth was revolving around its own axis and simultaneously revolving around the sun.
The same people who control the liberal establishment and society today, the Jesuits, had him tried by the Roman Inquisition, found "vehemently suspect of heresy", forced to recant, burnt his books and Galileo Galilei spent the rest of his life under house arrest.
The Inquisition only lifted the ban on his books 76 years after his death.
On the 31st October 1992, 350 year after Galileo Galilei died, Pope John Paul II acknowledged that Galileo was in fact right. After 350 Years, Vatican Says Galileo Was Right: It Moves
…That is how long it took for the TRUTH to be acknowledged.
Today, this 16th century science and truth is taught to all elementary school children all over the world…
But although we know the truth…Although we know that the Earth spins on its own axis, we still say every day that the “Sun rises” and that “The Sun sets”.
That is the power of propaganda…That despite knowing the truth for hundreds of years, we still perpetuate the lie.
If Galileo Galilei was alive today he would have a fit.
But it has become part of our modern culture to perpetuate lies even when all scientific facts are taught to us and hammered into our faces every day.
If it took the Roman Catholic Church 350 years to acknowledge that Galileo Galilei was right, how long is it going to take leftist believers to acknowledge that the ideology of Communism is evil, that Mandela was not a saint and that the ANC was the worst government South Africa ever had?
How much more misrule; How much more corruption is it going to take to convince them?
How many MSM reports, how many blogs does it take for people to see the light?
How many more academics, scientist and right thinking people will have to be sacrificed at the altar of political correctness before the TRUTH will triumph? Will they ever acknowledge that we were right?
Even if they eventually are convinced of the truth, I am sure they will still be saying in 350 years time: “The Sun is rising on the “Rainbow Nation”.
