Others have asserted that the media played a large and active part in the “disappearance” of this generation. It has been noted, for example, as simply one indicator, that 90% of youth protests were reported by the media in 1969, but only 20 to 25% were covered in 1970-71, and only 1% of such dissident activities could be found in the media coverage of 1972.
…this decline was part of a concerted effort by the media, in collusion with the threatened established sectors of society, to actively put a lid on student and youthful dissent and unrest.
I myself have knowledge and personal experience of how a similar suppression at exactly this time was perpetrated on university campuses. Specifically, at the college I was attending — Franklin and Marshall College in Lancaster, Pennsylvania — and other colleges and universities around the country, wealthy alumni threatened to withdraw funding unless (1) certain faculty members, considered “threatening” to established interests, were fired, (2) certain programs — considered too innovative, “disruptive,” or “instigative” — were cut back or eliminated, and (3) certain “unorthodox,” “undisciplined,” or “publicly disrespectful” student behaviors were discouraged, suppressed, and/or harshly responded to and clamped down on.
Indeed, such active “blacklisting” of counterculture figures, behavior, and values on university campuses seemed to be part of a general dictum across institutions — including publishing, films, TV, education at all levels, medicine and science, and the work place — to actively fight back at what was seen as dire threats to traditional values calculated to placate the masses and keep them, as for hundreds of years, feeling nervous, unworthy, inferior, and slavish in relation to the wealthy and powerful.
With these considerations, it is understandable that in 1971 and 1972 — despite increasing unrest and demonstrations on college campuses, increasing liberalization of values among all age groups and growing liberal and counterculture political power — there would be a number of books published and widely reviewed which, closing their eyes on all this, instead presented dubious evidence and selectively chosen incidents to make a case for a so-called “conservative backlash,” which there is no doubt the authors earnestly hoped for and fervently sought to bring about in their proclamation of it.
This may be seen as the beginnings of the use of “The Big Lie” as a major, sometimes the only strategy, in conservatives attempts to fight back against this outpouring of sensitivity to injustice at all levels.
However, its more recent re-emergence in contemporary America and its rise to the heights of skillful political brandishment in the hands, first, of Ronald Reagan and George Bush, Sr., and then later to its most pervasive use, however awkwardly and skill-less, during the eight years of Georg W. Bush, where Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld, Rove, and others took it to such moronic lengths they eventually were seen to be what they were — big lies, with no attempt to educate the public at all; but simply to cover up and to manipulate, like common criminals would. (Note, that the results of this are discussed, with a fair amount of humor, in another piece I’ve uploaded here titled “Naked Republicans.”)
Nevertheless, these later major uses, in fact the evolution of The Big Lie into the ONLY strategy of Republican politics may find its beginnings in such publications as these books from the early 70s, as well as to its highly skilled, and much documented, use by Richard Nixon throughout his political career.

The success of The Big Lie; and its eventual morphing into the Big Web of Deceit, more easily termed The Matrix. Whereas the 60s youth had only their enthusiasm and their heartfelt passion to allow a world of freedom, and all the other values espoused in our Constitution, they were up against huge entrenched, and filthy with wealth, nameless puppeteers. Their wealth got them any support they wanted for anything. And sensing a threat to the established quo, hearing about idealistic notions of equality, freedom, and such — knowing that their positions depended not on the actual enjoyment of the masses of their supposed “freedoms” but only their being convinced that they had them.
So it was a huge threat to see masses of people proclaiming their rights and actually daring to use them. They could be slowed down in using their rights by having them violently bludgeoned by police and riled up construction workers in Chicago; they could be taken off track perhaps, by having several of them killed at Kent State; and they could be continually arranged to be misreported in the media and maligned as well. But this seemed to make them only more determined.
Still, these puppeteers owned the media and therefore controlled what the public would be told; they were the main sources of income for universities across the country, so they controlled what would be rolled out as truth and knowledge; and ultimately they could fund politicians and speakers, and radio and TV show hosts who would speak their Big Lies. So they really had all the weapons to roundly put down this band of idealists whose only weapons were truth, and righteous feeling, and passion of youth, and clarity of youthful mind.
So it was no contest, especially as only one side was fully aware that they were at war; indeed the other side — most of them — having no inkling of the powers behind the scenes (that would of course be left out of the history and sociology books they had read — funded by the puppeteers of course). So, many of them even began to believe that they had lost, and that most Americans were lashing back at them. This would be disheartening to many; especially to those who had seen the coming together of middle class, upper middle class, and working class to join in mass movements like the one million who showed up from all over the country to be at Moratorium Day in November 15, 1970
So, believing the media probably had a big influence on taking the wind out of the sails of many of the youth. And still others, feeling they must be wrong because they had now, according to the media, become the enemy to those they hoped would see the wisdom of these values that basically came from them, i.e., their parents and the liberal worlds they grew up in! Their response, unfortunately, was to try to reintegrate with the society they had thrown behind them, but now saw as the only one possible. Still, they retained their values, and it became common to hear that these motivated youth decided on a strategy of playing the game to gain entrance to the positions of power and to change the structures of violence and hatred from within.
Coming Next: How The Big Lie Continues; the “Me Generation” created by the Puppeteers serves dual purpose in roundly being equated with Sixties youth, wrongly, and thus is given as evidence that their ideals were hypocritical.

The Rise and Fall of “Obvious Truths”: Part One. by SillyMickel Adzema
Part 1 The Fifty Year Invisible Family and Community That Surrounded All Americans and Affected Every Aspect of Their Lives Including, and Intentionally, the Basic Components of One’s Personality, and the Erosion of Reason, Soul, and Independent Thought or Action. How only because of increasingly cocky and greedy acts and extreme over-reaching “in broad daylight,” before the entire world, which displayed an incredible disregard for, disrespect of, indeed, the actual literal inability of the “Filthy Rich” and their Republican puppets to SEE American People, accidentally displayed blatantly and unknowingly by the Rep & FR before the entire world, disclose to the masses of Americans some “cracks,” “stains,” or textures in the “dome” of unreality they’d existed in, which made them blind to Reality itself, and had kept them in a near zombie like dream reality in which some began remembering events, the memories of which had been “bleached” out of awareness until just then, and then with remembering they realized how they’d been trained like animals their entire lives for the uses, whatever they’d be, of the “Filthy Rich,” and been trained then to forget that. The absolute certainty of their success and the absolute inability of the “Filthy Rich,” which was the shocking thing they’d carelessly let out and therefore displayed to the World,… absolute inability of the Rep and FR to actually notice, let alone view or act towards, Americans as any thing even living or having sentient ability, let alone as Humans, People, or Individuals (as far as “fellow Americans,” if that question even crossed your mind for second, you’re not yet taking in how literally true this is meant. You may very well, in fact, be deeply dreaming and have missed the little crack in the dream state that had shone the light in the eyes of a sufficiently large segment of the world population as to cause them to come out of trance and begin to untie their formerly invisible bonds, so that they could try looking around, which led to the realization of the reality that had been blocked from view, and the beginnings of investigations into the real truths of their existence, and to this series of books, which delineates the actual, formerly invisible profile, of the actual actors in American’s lives, and the processes of control , and the things in one’s lives that were determined for you by them, though you thought you had been making decisions for yourself. And the last aspects of this series delineating the real factors in your life and the outlines of the real intentions for our lives these puppet masters have had, and have even now in mind.

The Rise and Fall of Obvious Truths, Part 2. by SillyMickel Adzema
This is the second of three parts detailing the history of the Republican Party’s incredibly disciplined, relentlessly persistent, and amazingly cohesive nearly fifty-year campaign to gain advantage and wealth for their benefactors, the corporations and the “Filthy Rich,” through totally concocted untruths. It continues the exposition of this incredible phenomenon of decades long and increasing intentional misrepresentations used by one party representing a tiny segment of the electorate to weave a fabric of falsity over the eyes of the American public. Similar to a kind of hypnotic trance, it is a widely accepted but unreal and mostly opposite mental state acting like a filter to reality, blocking out the truth and substituting a fantasy quilt woven of verbal constructions. These constructions — the “obvious truths” — are designed to please the ear, rationalize the urges, and comfort the ego, so that they will become acceptable substitutes for reason and honest perception in a population which has also been intentionally burdened, stressed, and busied through policies intended to keep them submissive and fearful. This coordination of policy and mantra is a strategic effort, emanating essentially from a sliver of the population, as a terrified reaction initially to a rapid series of popular developments and mass movements with global reach, with the apparent power and possibility of overthrowing a multigenerational structure of power, wealth, privilege, and dominance. The acceptability of this substitute narrative was shaken only in recent years as it collided dramatically with the system that it had spawned, exposing its roots in the minds of a class and its utter lack of foundation in reality. The story of this lengthy and comprehensive intentional deception, its dramatic collision, and the gradual awakening of the population to the real forces behind the events of their lives and times, revealed in the shock of the disruption, continues.

“The Rise and Fall of ‘Obvious Truths’ Part 3″
This is the third and final part in this series delineating: The History of the American Republican’s Incredibly Disciplined, Relentlessly Persistent, and Amazingly Cohesive (seemingly coordinated) nearly 50 year campaign to Gain Advantage and Wealth for their benefactor Corporations and “Filthy Rich,” Through Totally Concocted Untruths,
Which, Introduced Carefully, Slowly, and therefore invisibly, over time, One by One with persistent, relentless repetition replacing reason or rational persuasion; along with a coordinated campaign whose goal was the creation of an American Mind eroded of rationality and confused and made fertile and desparately receptive to these fabrications seamlessly portrayed as truths; and with precise and strategic use of misinformation precisely targeted and measured for the achievement of specific ends, which, along with their campaign to physically and financially weaken the American Public through the simultaneous, and equally slow, meticulous, and precisely timed introduction of policies, which though not invisible, were cleverly packaged and perfectly timed to confuse the obvious step by step year by year connections of these policies and their cumulative, increasingly successful results – the castration of the (everyone but the “filthy rich”and the Republican Leadership, their lackeyed public faces) American’s power to resist even their clearly felt and increasing suffering; the slow but comprehensive elimination of rational thought and ability to reason in the American Mind; the creation of an American consciousness clouded and afog in confusion and thus forgetful of its past as a point of comparison, splintered and disintegrated and desparate for something however irrational to cling to; coincident with the preceding the dismantling of any solidarity of Americans on any large scale because of the confused state and its inability to discern obvious aspects of reality around which, otherwise and in times prior to the campaign, would have been obvious organizing principles or passionate (passionate because of the former unconfused mind’s clarity in witnessing big events and pervasive, blatant, and universal patterns of change and making the obvious and easy correct interpretations, which created conviction in one’s beliefs, rooted in first-hand observation, and, in the past, reinforced virtually universally by the great majority of Americans who also witnessed the obvious same things and made the apparent and doubtless interpretations that cried out from them.

Quote
Thus, former American minds capable of seeing obvious wrongness, injustice, illegality, untruth, deception, or worse – suffering and/or death of innocents, or of their allies – and gathering with great (undoubting and unconfused) conviction and passion in large numbers in solidarity and sameness of purpose to right obvious wrongs, or the like, therefore with clearly identifiable rallying points in obvious view of the great masses of Americans; which solidarity of purpose gave them strength equal or greater than that of the “filthy rich” would-be puppet-masters and the deciders and initiators of the events witnessed so widely and clearly by the masses which had brought them together in the singleness of purpose as to rival the strength of the ones, as pointed out, responsible for the wrongs universally observed and condemned and resulting in the massive gathering and/or movement united in purpose against the observed wrong, seeking justice on the perpetrators, and some sort of social or cultural change that might possibly or would definitely prevent future events of the same or similar sort of wrongness.

“Message in a Bottle: A Message Arrives from Nine Years in the Past Predicting Today’s Events, Part 1” by SillyMickel Adzema
We are disturbed reading that nine years ago our present National Situation was foreseen. Worse, we are reminded of what we lost; what could have been; how we’ve managed to block that from our memory in accepting the much diminished prospects now; but also how we should not forget; how we should remember how it happened; who was to blame; who helped and colluded in bringing it about, and why; so that, remembering, we might never let it happen again. For we learn, worst of all, that our chance to progress, rather, just to survive, now depends on remembering. Because nine years ago all that’s happened since could easily have been prevented if only we had not allowed ourselves to be talked into forgetting the history of only eight years prior to that. This is a serious and thoughtful piece, which everyone would do well to know, if we are to survive another 50 years, not to mention a century or longer. Still, the author is not of the sort that facing the harsh realities means we need go around glumly, martyr-like, in sack-cloth and ashes. Rather, the author feels we might as well enjoy and make use of all the God-given abilities we have whatever the outcome of our efforts. So don’t be surprised that this exposition is aided by guest appearances making their points in hilarious fashion. If you’ve never heard George Bush as Blutto from Animal House, you’ve got to. Wolf Blitzer is not recognized for being a comic, but when he goes on to explain to his faithful viewers how they’ve been lied to and manipulated for years, because of pressure from the Administration, and how grateful he is for their gullibility as he is receiving promotions and honors because his viewership is polling the highest in mindlessly accepting the concocted view, well we see many new sides of Wolf. Thought-provoking but funny, another thing he explains is that their incredible success over the years in getting people to believe and or to forget whatever they want, has resulted in their having a little celebration consisting of an experiment as well (which they hope will bring them in even tighter with the now all-powerful Administration). The celebration-experiment consists of a documentary in which the entire truth of the multiyear campaign to lie, deceive, and to control minds is laid out. And the experiment part is that they are certain that the next day and ever afterwards when such thing ever being aired is denied, the people will completely forget it and believe they must have been mistaken. Wolf signs off: “One last reminder on our special tonight, the documentary, “Freedom of the Press, Repealed. The Story and How, this Repeal Now Thoroughly Institutionalized Over six Years, We Can Now Reveal How We’ve Duped You and Will Continue To.” Tune in, don’t miss it; You’re sure to forget it.”

Quote
[If Bush gets elected in 2000,} “I believe we are in grave danger of
losing, not just an election, not just a Supreme Court, not just our
environment, not just our good economy, not just our recent relative
peace in the world but things far worse than those horrors. I believe
we are in danger of losing all hope of maintaining, let alone
progressing, in the freedoms and privileges that we take for granted.”
[Wolf Blitzer participating in the creation of false realities
(farcical)]:And, ha, ha, I have to say I have my viewership to thank for that. Sincerely, I owe a great debt of gratitude to you folks who regularly tune in to my show in particular. Why, the absolute malarkey that I was putting out to you, slowly at first, not feeling totally convinced of your gullibility, I mean, still in those days it was pretty irrational and unbelievable bull droppings, completely concocted out of only the hot air emanating from egotistical rants of those whose sole desire is only to comfort and enslave you.
Yet, the pollings that came in showed that I could practically fart out these concoctions and you would swallow them whole like tasty confections! I truly began to feel that I was like Moses bringing nightly the stone tablets; such was the utter inability among the masses of you to evaluate in any way what you were being fed.

Back to that time, however, still setting up the context that preceded the one of the last eight years. Clinton’s plan was simple and it worked. So, simple policy that ordinary folks employ in balancing their household budgets, not rocket science, applied sincerely by Clinton, had achievd what had been considered the impossible and as elusive as the Holy Grail: the quest of the Balanced Budget,

which many a Republican President had claimed as a top priority and made a central plank in his election platform, but a term or two later, after absolute failure and in fact causing a tripling or quadrupling of the national debt instead, had claimed was as elusive and difficult to achieve as the Holy Grail, and also blamed the Democrats, largely for programs instituted in the past, like Social Security and Medicare, and so on, which they knew coming into office, and which they slashed. But still they could not achieve a balanced budget.

Then in comes Clinton, one of the supposedly free-spenders party, roundly criticized for budget-busting and national debt increasing policies (somehow the Republicans and media still were able to conflate the two even after 12 disastrous years of Reagan-Bush that had proved — and dear people, if only it had been remembered, should have been proved for all time and become a huge national debate if not uproar when George W. Bush’s first major act was to reverse the successful economic policies of Clinton and reinstitute those of Reagain-Bush, with everyone in complete rememberance of what a debacle that had been once.

But this is not brought out in the media.

In a country with a truly free press, not owned by the very people who would benefit by such a reversal, this renewal of the disastrous policies of only a decade earlier would have been all over the place and the analogies would ripe for picking, like: “Bush elects rebuilding the Titanic exactly the same way as before. Claims we as Americans are not dumb enough to run into icebergs as Europeans are.”

Or, how about: “Bush proposes eliminating Food and Drug Administration, saying it will save taxpayers dolllars. Claims no longer needed because the kindly corporations of the current era no longer need the regulations of the past, which were directed against people of a time that contained more unsavory, non-Patriotic, non-American types”

It seems a defense mechanism to forget that we saw all this coming, for to know that is to despair in realizing the impotence, even, of awareness….
If we remembered, like Charlie Brown approaching the football, or like Sisyphus rolling the boulder up the hill… if we remembered, would we continue to act?
No, we have to believe that we will be surprised this time, that indeed Lucy will hold the football and we will complete the kick….
Yet this is not the whole truth. If it were, then the cynicism we felt about “The Audacity of Hope” would have proven a correct perception….
To the astonishment, truly, of an entire world, Charlie Brown connected with the football, Lucy apologized for her past actions, one heavy boulder remained steady on the top of a hill and gave a man a much needed rest from his endless labors….
For one incredible and glorious time, the movie we’d seen had a different ending – amazing enough – but the tragedy in the original did not occur, and, as if God had for a time touched this planet, this Reality we call our World, our Life… had just for one time touched, tipped, and turned our events so that the awesomely unexpected happened….
So that a man so unbelievably naïve and unaware as to declare the “audacity of hope” and to call out and stir up the masses, deluding them as we’ve seen so many times before, that “yes, we can,” would, and we’d have to pinch ourselves to believe it to actually be happening even as we witnessed it, actually succeed in doing exactly what he said he would do, would not only show us that a man could actually affect the course of events, that a person could not only change things from the way they’d always been (what kind of man can this be?), but that he would do it in a grand and sweeping way…..
that unmoving wrongness of the world that we have tried so futilely to change that, being in us, is the source of the blessedness of life, which is the fact that our ultimate unknowingness is the only true source of a hope that IS real, that being wrong, being imperfect means something unbelievable when you think of it: which is that against all odds, “something wonderful is going to happen,” that in spite of ourselves the miraculous can happen, that magic is real, and that hope, and happiness, and blessedness, and forgiveness, and glorious divine wonders beyond even the envisioning of our ideals are possible….
And all because the only thing that we can be truly sure of (even when we are finally convinced that we should not expect anything special) is that we can never be sure… which means that anything ispossible… which means that everything is possible…..
