Ex-KGB Agent Yuri Bezmenov Explains “How to Subvert a Nation” – Thought Provoking

without comments

This interview was brought to my attention.  This was conducted in 1985 by Mr. G. Edward Griffin, author of “The Creature from Jekyll Island“, a critical book on the formation of the Federal Reserve Bank and with Ex-KGB agent Yuri Bezmenov on how to subvert a nation.  Normally with a title like that I would not take time to review it but it was highly recommended from the person who brought it to my attention.  Mr. Bezmenov was trained in ideological subversion, active measures, dis-information and Soviet propaganda.  After watching the video (note: I personally read a large amount of news each day), I notice that it seems like some of these tactics are being used in our media, like fear-mongering and twisting words of the English language to get incorrect assumption to the non-critical thinker.  It talks about how media can be used to “change your perception” on a given subject.

He states that we have been slowly “socialized” over a couple generations without proper balance against it with “Core American Values”.   I have to agree with that, we are moving into a nation of entitlement when we were a nation of ingenuity and real innovation on all class levels.  He speaks of putting a large federal government in Washington D.C. and we are witnessing that right in front of our eyes.  How many “Czars” do we have now and why is this term so popular for positions in our government?  We also have encroachment on our freedom of speech, an example are people automatically assuming conflicting opinions with our President are somehow racist and talk of having the “fairness doctrine” brought back to regulate radio and the internet.  I really missed the time when our media was very critical and asked the hard questions without having to answer to a corporation that may or may-not have a vested interest in the outcome of a piece of news.  The news should be first and foremost about the truth and giving perspective.

Review (From Video):

The four stages of “subversion” are:

* Demoralization

* Destabilization

* Crisis

* Normalization

You decide?

Where is our outrage against this persistent corruption in America?

without comments

Karl Denninger is really on to something.  He is really tapping into the anger and frustration that we as a people seem to have a lack of in this great country.  I know we are all busy with our day to day lives but now is the time to start taking action or this great bastion of freedom, liberty and opportunity is going to slip away and one day we will all wake up servants to the same apparatus that this country was founded in opposition too.

This is not a Democrat or Republican issue or a left or right agenda.    Both parties are equally guilty in not holding up justice or fairness on almost every issue if not every single one across the board.  This has happened through the special interest that has guided the legislative process into areas that really do not help all the people.  Laws need to be fair to all not just a select few.   Have we all lost our stomach for outrage and holding people accountable?  Do we not want to look to investigate crimes that have taken place because “we don’t want to look to the past”?  Well “I” for one say “No”.  We need to investigate, prosecute where crimes have taken place and set the precedent that sets a legal standard that is right and justly.

Karl has the courage to not sit back and just take but to speak out and confront the issues we face.  I hope you take the video to heart and it gets you motivate to take action and ask your representatives why we are not doing more even if it is not the politically safe option.
