News & Comment

The news defines — by what it focuses upon, what it excludes and its slant — the context in which we live our lives, which in turn determines how we behave, the decisions we make and the politicians we vote for. Control the news and you control the people, which is why the mainstream media, which is owned by the elite, constantly manipulates public perception to support the elite's agenda. This is why modern mass media is replete with lies (fake news), consumerism, empire-building, fear and the threat of terrorism, advertisements and vacuous entertainment. If you do not want to be a pawn to such an agenda, if you want to know what is really happening so you can make your own decisions, you must start using alternative media sources. Many have their own agendas, but if you combine several of them, you will get an overall picture of events that is orders of magnitude more accurate that that put out by the mass media. In the column on the right are listed some of the alternative media sources worth checking out.

bp-logoGore Vidal dies at age 86 (1 Aug 2012)
Vidal was an author, playwright, essayist, screenwriter and political activist. He was a prolific and brilliant writer, writing 25 novels and hundreds of essays on literature and politics. He will be remembered for his anti-war stance and his outspoken opposition to the invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq, as well as his liberal views on society and sexuality. Well-known for his pithy observations on modern American life, he wrote: "The genius of our ruling class is that it has kept a majority of the people from ever questioning the inequity of a system where most people drudge along, paying heavy taxes for which they get nothing in return." He will be missed.

Energygrid used to recommend Alex Jones' Prison Planet (prisonplanet.com) and Infowars (infowars.com). However, Jones appears to have hidden agendas judging by his recent behaviour and so can no longer be relied on as an unbiased alternative media source. Some are saying he may be a CIA shill. We don't know that but what we do know is that his ranting fear-mongering is helping nobody except the elite, as fearful people are easier to control and are more likely to give away their last remaining freedoms in exchanged for perceived safety.
