edit: Occupy! and "How To Brainwash a Nation:" 1 Hr videoSubmitted by zeekmort on Tue, 10/04/2011 - 15:50
The following video was filmed in 1985, and has seen play on DP before, but it's very relevant to the recent wall street protests and the suspicion that a good number of the protesters are a bit too "socialist" in their message.
edit: Full, one hour interview
After watching the full interview, I decided to edit this post a bit. The FULL video gives more data and actually made me realize that the best solution for the Occupy! protests is to view them as organized by dangerous individuals looking to destabilize the government and promise lots of "free goodies" (redistribution of wealth) to the silly adherents who desire social change.
Joining the "Occupy!" protests is not a good idea. Trying to change the minds of people involved who do not know any better might be a good idea.
Perhaps this video can explain why ordinary Americans, especially some young people, are now touting the very principles which are anathema to a free society and bring about totalitarianism.
This "movement" needs to be overwhelmed, through education, by those who truly support liberty - us. Else it will go out of control and be used to create disorder in the government, bringing it down with violence. The best way to control this movement is to dwarf it with the educational force of the educated disciples of liberty. We are more educated and more dedicated, and thus can achieve control. Shunning it, we will not be able to control it. Leading by example, and educating with truth, we may convert others.
Note that the leaders of this movement should likely be completely ignored. They are set in their ways and intend destruction.
The video discusses "the four stages of ideological subversion" which the powers-that-be used (and arguably are still using) to destroy this nation and other nations, replacing their governments with a Soveit-style oppression machine - all coming from the mouth of an agent who used to work for them.
How to reverse the ideological subversion of this country is noted in the segment starting at 1h 07m 30sec and 1h 10m 00sec. It is a 15 year+ process!
Amazing data also at 1h 16m about the true source of this war for our freedoms. You need to hear this to believe it.
Also at 1h 17m, is what we can do about this - education.
Stage 1 and 2 of the plan outlined in the video are already long done, and Stage 3 - crisis - could be in progress now. Waste no opportunity to educate sheeple enamored by these protests and guide their ideological development so they can become true patriots. But their "organizers" have very specific goals, despite what the media says. They are the enemy of freedom and aim to overthrow the government with violent revolution, with the end goal of total authoritarian dominance.
