Conspiracy Nation -- Vol. 10 Num. 47

("Quid coniuratio est?")


In Dr. John Coleman's uneven book, Conspirators Hierarchy, we see how Tavistock Institute (hive of leading-edge psychological machinations) leads to William Paley, who had been indoctrinated with a "thorough knowledge of the new-science science of public opinion making, which made CBS the leader of the field..." Highly knowledgeable psychological manipulators sit at the center of the spider's web, hidden away in the darkest closet of the pseudo sophisticates who feel they know what's best for us all. From there, with psycho-skills that are the envy of Madison Avenue, they softly pull the strings of mainstream media outlets.

Dr. Coleman includes quotes from a book by one Edward Bernays, Propaganda, to back up what he says:

As civilization becomes more complex, and as the need for an invisible government has been increasingly demonstrated, the technical means have been invented and developed by which public opinion may be regimented. With printing press and newspaper, the telephone, telegraph, radio and airplanes, ideas can be spread rapidly, and even instantaneously, across the whole of America.

The conscious and intelligent manipulation of organized habits and opinions of the masses is an important element in a democratic society.

We are governed, our minds are moulded, our tastes formed, our ideas suggested, largely by men we have never heard of.

On Friday, April 18, 1997, faced with a barrage of media hysteria regarding the imminent April 19 "Day of Infamy," my only question was: Is this just a psychological operation, or are they laying the groundwork for an actual "terrorist" (really them, but wearing a disguise) event? Thankfully, it seems to have been just a psychological operation.

Last year at this time, the level of media hysteria surrounding April 19th did not reach the same high level that it has this year. What's different about this year? The answer is that the trial of Oklahoma bombing suspect Tim McVeigh is starting.

And what about Gene Tatum, suddenly released from prison? Tatum's stories have been carried in the past by Conspiracy Nation; they seemed solid. Yet now look out: while in prison, Tatum apparently was fed a line by certain fellow prisoners closely connected to the April 19, 1993 Waco Massacre. "If you can't trust your fellow prisoners, then who can you trust," apparently reasons Tatum. Tatum may be about to let loose with a tale of Tim McVeigh as being one of David Koresh's "avenging angels," in line with Koreshian interpretations of his own major significance and of Biblical prophecy.

And what is the subtle psychological manipulation in the "avenging angel" story? In certain quarters, Tatum has earned high credibility. A "hot" story from Tatum, due to his having had the "good luck" to inadvertantly access key witnesses close to the Branch Davidians, witnesses kept buried by the U.S. government but stumbled upon by arch sleuth Tatum, could slip under the credibility shields of more intelligent observers. Tatum's possibly imminent tale of McVeigh as Koresh's avenging angel might be believed. At least it would muddy up the waters.

To whoever cooked up this little scheme: my compliments to the chef!
