Dynamics Of Censorship

Dynamics Of Censorship PDF Version

It has been 246 years since the American Revolution. For all but the last five or so years, citizens saw and heard all that they were exposed to. Now there is a fear that folks in general might be exposed to wrong ideas and that would be harmful to the country and themselves. The common man now must be protected from being misguided, ostensibly for his own good.  His protectors are deemed to know all that is worthy of his attention and knowledge base.

It must be noted that government is not censoring anyone, at least not the official government. The corporate structure has been around for a long time. Never before has industry been motivated to protect the country’s citizens from receiving wrong information. So what has changed that makes industry motivated to guide the thinking of the population?

Is the media just a bunch of well meaning people devoted to protecting the overall population? The incentive to do that has to have come from somewhere.

The media censors, but who benefits from the censorship? Stories about anti – viral treatments, other than what comes out of the pharmaceutical industry, are just not allowed. There must be a relationship between big pharma and the media. Any individual or organization which suggests anything other than the collectivist approach to solving problems is not allowed to speak either.

Clearly all who benefit from a docile, homogenized and narrowly focused, overall population are good with censorship and want more of it.

The American population is managed in the same way aggregations of animals are molded and herded. My grandfather and uncle both raised cattle in South Texas. They had different ranching philosophies. My grandfather was old school and believed that a cow was a cow. He made no effort to upgrade his stock so that it had any cohesiveness in terms of breeds and such. My uncle studied agriculture in college and thought differently. He built a herd of black Angus Cattle. His cattle were all about the same size and color. Their behavior was certainly standardized. He got a consistent. stable and high price for all the cows he put on the market.

The elite of the world manage our population in the same way my uncle managed his herd of cattle. Today, what Americans do with their thoughts, time and energy is very well standardized. The profitability of this approach is unquestionably high. All who benefit from a homogenized population are fearful of that situation changing.

Today’s censorship boils down to being  the most important tool, used to herd and profit off of the United States population.

Why are blinders placed on horses? All phenomenon that might distract the horse from carrying out its intended purpose is censored. The horse’s purpose might be to win a race or pull a wagon. In all cases, the horse’s attention is force- focused only on what is needed to accomplish the goal of its master.  Over time, horses have become accustomed to these things. The horses get fed and watered.  They also get free health care,  also in keeping with their masters aspirations.

Censorship of the American Public works the same way it does with horses.  Folks are kept from noticing ideas that might work counter to the best interests of those who are privileged to manage the activities of the American population, which does for their purposes constitute a herd.

Those are the dynamics of censorship in a nutshell.

About Fantasy Free Economics

James Quillian independent scholar,free market economist,and teacher of natural law. Who is James Quillian? Certainly I am nobody special, Just a tireless academic and deep thinker. Besides that, I have broken the code with respect to economics and political science. Credentials? Nothing you would be impressed with. I am not a household name. It is hard to become famous writing that virtually no one in the country is genuinely not in touch with reality. But, if I did not do that, there would be no point in my broking the broken the code. If you read the blog, it is easy to see that there are just a few charts, no math and no quantitative analysis. That is not by accident. Given what I know, those items are completely useless. I do turn out to be highly adept at applying natural law. Natural law has predominance over any principles the social science comes up. By virtue of understanding natural law, I can debunk, in just a few sentences , any theory that calls for intervention by a government. My taking the time to understand the ins and outs of Keynes General Theory is about like expecting a chemistry student to completely grasp all that the alchemists of the middle ages thought they understood in efforts to turn base metals into goal. Keynesian theory clearly calls for complete objectivity. Government can only make political decisions. Keynesian techniques call for economic decisions. So, why go any further with that? Fantasy Free Economics is in a sense a lot like technical analysis. Technical analysis began with the premise that it was impossible to gain enough information studying fundamentals to gain a trading advantage. Study the behavior of investors instead. Unlike technical analysis, I don't use technical charts. What I understand are the incentives of different people and entities active in the economics arena. For example, there is no such thing as an incentive to serve with life in the aggregate. In the aggregate, only self interest applies. It is routinely assumed otherwise. That is highly unappealing. But, I am sorry. That is the way it is. I can accept that because I am genuinely in touch with reality. Step one in using Fantasy Free Economics is for me to understand just how little I really know. A highly credentialed economist may know 100 times what I do based on the standard dogma. Compare the knowledge each of us has compared to all there is to know and we both look like we know nothing at all. There is always more than we don't know than what we do know. I am humble enough to present myself on that basis. Why? That is the way it is. I am not bad at math. I have taught math. What I understand is when to use it and when to rely on something else. Math is useless in natural law so I don't use it. While others look at numbers, I am busy understanding the forces in nature that makes their numbers what they are. That gives me a clear advantage.
