How are YOU going to bring about real change if you do not exactly know what is wrong?
WESTERN ACADEMICS (SOCIAL KIND)By Mehmet Kurtkaya
The power that drives social fields in the West (US, Europe, Israel and Western vassals) is the money given/gifted to academics and writers. The papers, the articles, presentations, research grants, speeches are mostly reverse engineered to fit the conclusion the payment requires.
Wherever in the West one turns to, the 100 year old saying by the long forgotten real journalist and writer Upton Sinclair, "It is difficult to make someone understand something if his salary depends on not understanding it" holds true.
The relationship between the money powers and the universities is out in the open for everyone to see, though at times under the table through grants, scholarships, columns, think-tanks and speech arrangements.
The role a Western academic plays in society is best described by the Nazi supporting Sigmund Freud's nephew Edward Bernays' quote, who is taunted as the founder of public relations in Wall Street:
“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. …We are governed, our minds are molded, our tastes formed, our ideas suggested, largely by men we have never heard of. This is a logical result of the way in which our democratic society is organized. Vast numbers of human beings must cooperate in this manner if they are to live together as a smoothly functioning society. …In almost every act of our daily lives, whether in the sphere of politics or business, in our social conduct or our ethical thinking, we are dominated by the relatively small number of persons…who understand the mental processes and social patterns of the masses. It is they who pull the wires which control the public mind.”
Not coincidentally, Nazi propaganda minister Goebbels highly valued Bernays' work.
Academics are instruments of Western governments. The more famous the academic or the writer the more likely s/he is a sellout, though there maybe exceptions.
Nobel piece and literature gifts are particularly important for Western propaganda. Two war criminals Kissinger and Churchill were handed Nobel peace and literature gifts respectively.
There was a great article I have seen many years back which showed the monies given by the FED to the economists topped 400 million dollars per year, supposedly for research, speech, papers etc. In reality it was given to promote free market dictatorship by spreading FED propaganda!
And to think, educated people read these academics on internet blogs, newspapers and they watched them on TV thinking they were independant voices.
Academician filled think tanks would form not only US government policy both domestic and foreign agenda but would provide talking points and canned cleverness to the university educated, liberalized masses to expand the propaganda.
There are so many of them that American Empire would run out of tanks before it runs out of think tanks.
ACADEMIC "PREDICTIONS"The predictions Western academics in political fields make are anything but predictions. The prophesy of neocon Samuel Huntington in his book "Clash of civilizations" in the early 1990s which was based on the work of imperialism-supporting historian Bernard Lewis is a clear example.
This thesis, a non-prediction, was nothing but a 20th century euphemism for Religious Wars or Crusades. A similar work was published by war criminal Breszinski in 1996, The Grand Chess Board where a need for a new Pearl Harbor was mentioned.
Very specific predictions indeed by neocon academics, those misfortune tellers! Somehow, who knows how, these predictions come true.
Breszinski was among those who created/supported Islamist terrorists in Afghanistan back in the 1970's against Soviet Union's socialism and there is a photo which shows him handing a weapon to non other than Bin Laden.
Western Academics are instrumental not only in shaping domestic and foreign policies politically but also economically. Milton Freidman of the Rockefeller founded University of Chicago advocated free markets devoid of coercion throughout his career yet became an advisor to one of the most brutal dictators in history, Pinochet to implement free market reforms in Chile! This is not hypocrisy, this is a Big Lie.
Unfortunately Naomi Klein had constructed her criticism in Shock Doctrine as if IMF and other banks needed any natural shock to implement their policies. Bankers would create their own shocks in military coups (1980) or financialy (2001) like they did to left leaning prime minister Ecevit in Turkey - for refusing to participate in West's criminal war in Iraq. Interestingly one of the Bush administration officials is rumored to have said "We are an empire and when we move we create our own reality". Whether someone said it is irrelevant because all Neocon actions prove it as a fact. Just like when Bush is reported to have said "Constitution is a Goddamn piece of paper."
Hidden from the public is the relation of the cause of real life events. Prediction is based on disowning the cause. A stock manipulator may well "predict" the fall in prices of the stock he manipulates. That would make him not only rich but also a market guru. Western academics rather than predict help shape policies they supposedly predict together with the government and banker interests.
Western governments buy people to foment trouble in the countries they target and then their media depicts the rebellion as a natural uprising of the local people. Needless to say this opens the door for "liberal humanitarian interventionism" a euphemism for imperialist war, like in Syria, by using mercenaries and terrorists against the legitimate secular government of Assad.
ACADEMIC JOB: HIDING BANKER OWNED GOVERNMENTS' CONSPIRACIESThe long list of proven and admitted government conspiracies would never make a dent on the beliefs of the Western educated masses. They would never think that when a government with all its agencies including the justice department conspires it would be extremely difficult for it to surface. Instead of thinking a number of proven conspiracies as the top of the iceberg as logic would have it, they would swear them as harmless exceptions without ever thinking why should there be any exceptions!
WESTERN HI-STORYLike every criminal wanting to hide evidence of their crimes, many complicit Western academics would bury history under piles of deception, omission and verbal booby traps. By looking at the legacy of its graduates in social fields like economics, management and hi-story one can conclude that Harvard University's logo must read Frauditius, unfortunately for humanity, it is Veritas.
One of the major academic tricks in the West is the extreme division/compertamentalization in social fields. The division of subject matters into strict specializations make sure academics can't see the big picture of human experience even if some would want to: History is fragmented and as such people can rarely find the truth by looking at existing knowledge. Those who try cannot see the big picture. For the sellouts, money and its politics is the only driver.
Albert Einstein, scientist, author of "Why Socialism?" had a proposal for a people oriented education system in 1948 right after the end of WW2. Unfortunately not even American leftists have heard of Einstein's socialist writings.
All the good Western people fighting against capitalism are kept hidden in the Western hi-story.
