(NaturalNews) The reason the national media was recently ordered by the White House to halt all reporting on Ebola is because controlling perception is now more important than dealing with reality. While legitimate measures to halt a viral pandemic are abandoned — quarantines, border security and travel restrictions — the real government effort is now being focused on controlling the perception of the pandemic.
If the public realizes a pandemic is on the loose in the United States of America, the thinking goes, they might freak out and lose faith in government.
Faith in government, in turn, is the only thing holding government together at the moment… and that faith is rapidly waning. Americans are by and large losing faith in the CDC, the IRS, the Secret Service, the FDA and even the USDA. Satisfaction with government is approaching all-time lows, and the resounding results of this week’s mid-term elections show a wholesale rejection of the government currently running things in America.
To protect the perception that government knows what it’s doing, Ebola is now being fought with smoke and mirrors rather than quarantines and border security. While possible Ebola carrier Nurse Hickox was allowed to travel freely among the public, that same public was being intentionally isolated with a kind of “news quarantine” blackout on Ebola.
We have now entered the era of such political insanity that Ebola quarantines are actively rejected by the government while news quarantines are actively erected. As long as the people aren’t aware of what’s really happening, then everything will be fine, we’re supposed to believe. So “perception management” becomes the top priority in Washington.
The entire financial system now hangs by a perception thread
Nowhere is this more true than in the bubble stock market that now looked poised for a disastrous crash. A highly informative article explaining all this was recently written by Brandon Smith on Alt-Market.com. It’s entitled We Have Just Witnessed The Last Gasp Of The Global Economy.
“There is literally nothing left to the financial system but rigged statistics, false promises, and ever expanding debt,” Brandon writes. “The fact that many market traders clearly KNOW that it’s all a farce, and are actually banking and betting on the scam, tells me exactly how close we are to the end of the line. …In almost every instance of market decline, financial news group Reuters has injected false rumors of more stimulus from the European Central Bank. This was also the case in October as markets began to crash. These rumors were later dashed by the Financial Times, but not before the mere mention of more fiat stimulus from any central bank sent stocks soaring yet again.”
He also writes:
They know that the entire system is rigged by central banks, and they don’t care. In fact, they revel in it. The only goal of your average day trader now is to profit on the scam for as long as humanly possible, even though the ultimate conclusion of the scam will mean the utter destruction of their profits and the end of their way of life.
In the financial markets, you see, “perception, smoke and mirrors” is the only thing keeping the system afloat. That’s why so much effort is now placed in managing public perception through the planting of false QE rumors, the rigging of government economic statistics, price manipulations of gold and silver, and even plunge protection activities timed to give last-ditch buoyancy to plummeting stocks.
What do Ebola, financial markets and the government all have in common?
What’s fascinating to me about all this is just how fragile and flimsy everything has become in society. We’ve already witnessed in Dallas how U.S. hospitals can’t even handle Ebola-infected patients without spreading Ebola to medical staff and nearly locking up virtually all medical resources of the entire hospital.
The CDC is so panicked about managing public perception that it actually censored itself, scrubbing its own “aerosolized particles” document that admitted Ebola can be spread through coughing, sneezing and contaminated objects such as doorknobs.
The raw truth about Ebola is now such a threat to the CDC’s management of public perception that even the very basics of virology and infectious disease science must be strenuously denied, retracted and censored by the CDC itself, an agency that ridiculously claims to be based on science in the first place.
The Obama administration, meanwhile, is running on such fumes that it actually ordered the national media to stop reporting Ebola stories to the public. Smacking of the kind of centralized, dictatorial news censorship you might see in China or the old U.S.S.R., the United States of America now has no free press. Virtually all conventional media outlets simply parrot whatever the government tells them to print. Those “approved” stories predictably center on blatant disinfo like how great the economic recovery is (yeah, right), the incredible explosion in new job creation (an outright falsehood), why the vaccine industry will save us all from Ebola (sure they will) and other similar nonsense such as stories claiming gold is a horrible thing to buy (because paper dollars are so much better, obviously).
