Disinformation Tactics: The Methods Used To Keep You In The Dark

There was a time, not too long ago (relatively speaking), that governments and the groups of elites that controlled them did not find it necessary to conscript themselves into wars of disinformation. Propaganda was relatively straightforward. The lies were much simpler. The control of information flow was easily directed. In fact, during the early Middle-Ages in most European countries commoners were not even allowed to own a Bible, nor was the Bible allowed to be interpreted from Latin to another language, let alone any other tome that might breed “dangerous ideas”. This was due in large part to the established feudal system and its hierarchy of royals and clergy. Rules were enforced with the threat of property confiscation and execution for anyone who strayed from the rigid socio-political structure. Those who had theological, metaphysical, or scientific information outside of the conventional and scripted collective world view were tortured and slaughtered. The elites kept the information to themselves, and removed its remnants from mainstream recognition, sometimes for centuries before it was rediscovered.

The establishment of Democracies (and Democratic Republics), with their philosophy of open government and rule by the people, compelled Aristocratic minorities to plot more subtle ways of obstructing the truth and thus maintaining their hold over the world without exposing themselves to retribution from the masses.

Excellent article.

And don't forget much valuable scientific, socio-economic, etc. information/knowledge of a factual/truthful nature has been clandestinely held by various secret societies over the centuries. How much of this information could have been and/or could be positively life altering for much if not all of humanity? Only GOD and perhaps a handful of "enlightened" individuals worldwide are privy to this alleged information/knowledge. Their power lies in their apparent ability to have historically kept this knowledge in the dark.
