  1. theelites monoplosized our water system and air and electricty under the guise of government and keep them bankrolled and we give them our taxes too so what they dont pay to keep us in an illusion we, pay ourselves to stay dumbed down

  2. So the only reason to communicate with a chimp would be to use the chimp as a baby sitter, Of sorts so that a child that is deaf or raised only to speak that way because of an autism would communicate with the chimp especially if the child was being kept from everyone and anyone for S R A

  3. Because other than that a human a grown up can look very scary to a child and you can not talk to them because how would they understand and they are so mean anyways.

  4. There really is no "daily news".
    Just a daily assigned delusion.
    And to this we must confine our views.
    To avoid creating confusion.
    I may not agree with what you say.
    But I'll grant you the right to express it.
    For my press can distort it in every way..
    And the end result is to repress it.

  5. Fell asleep watching the czar series on communism woke up to this same thing different pile America is crewed unless they get these dual citizens out of your government.and courts.

  6. I just wanted to say thank you to who ever posted this . It says so much about what is and has many times been done . We have been told over and over if you don't look back at history you are doomed to repeat it. Which is just not true because even when we looked back at our history we still ended up repeating it. It is bloody well exhausting .

  7. The New York Times making history would make a lot of since about the down fall of the real press and history as we once knew it . Years back The New York Times was proven to have been falsifying some of their stories. And with that I think was the downfall of press and the rising of politics controlling the press which then and downturn controlled us. So I see that . How do the elites own big business and press? Warren Buffett currently own s majority of the banking industry and quite a bit of the press. The difference between when this movie was made and now is it now to find out who owns these companies All you have to do is a few minutes of searching on the internet. Then for the average American not so easy. So now we know who our owners are. Warren Buffett ,Bazos ,Gates, Trump ,Colgate and plenty more.

  8. Hi to everyone, specially @Encore +! Could you PLEASE provide the Subtitle in a (.srt) Format? Or where to get it. I searched the internet, but I coudn't find any.

  9. This Video was true then is true NOW √√ — EVERYONE should watch it!! Even MULTIPLE Times instead of wasting time bouncing the Internet or "Netflix & Co." …;-))

  10. This is the original creator of what has been condensed down into a stupid phrase "fake news." This was the first solid assessment of how the media can be manipulated not only by groups of people but by the government and advertisers as well. It's more complex then red vs blue and "fake news." He discusses 5-gatekeepers that change media and how they do it, first real critical assessment of media done by Chomsky and Herman (1988) 'Manufactured Consent.'

  11. The most fascinating thing for me was Noam's schooling – he had no concept of a good student until he went to academic high school. He thrived in an environment which did not define a good student and there was no competition….perhaps the two things which quietly controls us psychologically. This is also aligned with Krishnamurti's perspective.

    anything except scientific papers, congressional hearings, and court cases is 100% propaganda. including this video

  13. Noam got one thing wrong, he assumed people are good and it's the systems that corrupt them. The internet is open, free, and a low bar to enter. And nothing has changed. We aren't being manipulated by cooked stories. We are drawn or repelled by them based on our subjective world view. End. of.

  14. There was already a violent civil war in Timor Timor before Indonesia ever intervened and Indonesia did not jump in taking sides. It's goal was to stop the violence. But of course this had to involve defeating groups that refused to stop fighting. The Island of Timor is, and has always been, part of the Indonesian Archipelago. Timor Timor, the north-eastern half of the island had once been a Portuguese colony, just as Indonesia itself had earlier been a Dutch colony. Indonesians threw out the Dutch with no help from the west. And as revolutions go it was relatively bloodless. So of course it was only natural that when the violence started on the eastern part of the island which just happened to be the last vestige of foreign colonial power in the whole archipelago, Indonesia chose to close down this last foreign colony on its territory once and for all. Revolutions and civil wars are always bloody and all sides consider their side to be justified and accuse the "others" of being agressors. Most of the people of the island already considered themselves to be Indonesians and this was true even in the eastern part, Timor Timor (east east). Chomsky's presentation of the situation is every bit as twisted and dishonest as any of the media lies he mentions. Indonesia was not the invader. Portugal was the invader and the violent armed groups of Timor Timor were never even intended to take power, even by the countries supplying their arms. The real intention was to provoke an Indonesian response so that the rising globalist supra-nation could get involved and claim Timor Timor as a colony. And that's the current situation. It is not an independent nation. It is a UN/globalist military base. Similar to the US base in Guantanamo Bay Cuba.
    A colonial presence on the territory of a weaker nation.×500/33/61833-050-302C6C05/East-Timor.jpg

  15. 1:40:32 to claim direct democracy is anarchism is an outrage and denies every person the ability to take personal responsibility or to be able to learn about it. One wants to persuade the peoples of this world that they are too stupid to support decisions on legal, security, and domestic issues. Denying people of maturity and replacing them with the given reality of the large corporations that seem to govern is not only questionable but also seriously criminal.

  16. Let's discuss how the human ability to 'discern' collapsed in 2020 AD? Big Brother speaks through 'mainstream news narratives'. Mainstream news agencies are the fake news. Follow the money trail. Two old guys talk about who funds this Pandemic 'script', 'over-inflated' covid numbers, and how Soros funds/promotes the Left's narratives:
