Satranç40

By F. WILLIAM ENGDAHL In a famous speech to the US Congress in March 1991, just after the collapse of the Soviet Union and the US Gulf War victory over Saddam Hussein’s Iraq, a triumphant US President George H.W.

soviet-space-program-propaganda-poster-5

By RICHARD SMOLEY Winston Churchill famously characterised Russia as “a riddle, wrapped in a mystery, inside an enigma.” It’s apt, then, that the father of the Russian space program – perhaps of all space programs – was an ascetic librarian who taught that humanity should work for the physical resurrection of all the dead.

In our modern world, the psychopomp tradition has changed to not only helping the dying, but also … [Read more...]

In more recent times the overall manipulation of the mass public mind has become less about overt spectacles of fear and obedience, and more about subtle forms of media propaganda.
