Network – TV is Not the Truth (video)

34

Network was released in 1976, but, as it is the case for brilliant works of art, it was decades ahead of its time.

How about this world vision.

  1. Norman Beale played by Australian actor Peter Finch, 1976, passed away 1977 the only actor to receive an Academy Award posthumously. Hmmmm.

    • Hmm.. And they gave they guy an award posthumously? SMH… these guys go after anyone who stands in their way. Sad, that after all of their planning, they will be the ones to loose.

  2. This is so true! TV is like the ultimate babysitter, your friend, advisor, storyteller, and everybit a fantasy. I used to watch "Girlfriends" and something clicked on this level, in that "Girlfriends" IS NOT REAL!! Everything in the top video is blatant and true. The bottom video was disabled by the time I got to it, but nonetheless, I get it! From the daily soaps, to the nighttime dramas, and even the skewed news programs–TV is destroying our brain cells. Even watching Nickalodian, the story lines are DUMB, the humor is gross, and depict storylines to stunt the growth of any knowlege.

    Yet, I cant survive without a TV. I am seriously thinking of buying my first E-reader and forgo the endless/mindless chatter of TV. My first E-book will be the Holy Bible. That is what I need right now.

  3. Network is one of my favorite movies of all time and so prophetic! I majored in Journalism in college and everything about Network is very much on point. Don't trust your television! It's all illusion, smoke and mirrors! Only those who are sleeping still believe that the media is telling them the truth!

    What's the plan?*

    I'll revel some of it to you

    What's the plan? To not let you consciously advance

    With mindless radio and television programs

    Doping you up with new brand's of illegal contraband

    Once again activating the hand of the sun of man

    No regards for life no chance for yours

    Lies and more tax dollars financing wars

    While you parting ignoring the news they sign laws

    Deceptively forming methods to keep you behind bars

    Who rules the planet the people who's over them?

    The president ain't number one he got powers controlling him

    Long before 9/11 nationwide fraud

    America had been the master of the inside job

    Anytime there was a tragedy their face was in the picture

    When the Rothschild family was breaking bread with Hitler

    And all they ever did was enslave you and pillage you

    Stop honoring and country that's responsible for killing you

    [K-Rino:]

    What's the plan? The profit of the poor man's habits

    pharmaceutical corpses made a nation of drug addicts

    They don't wanna cure they want money while you a dope fiend

    I see the devil every time I look at Osteen

    [It's hell in the ghetto but it's better in the birds

    Countries under control of the Federal Reserve

    Wicked regene form back in nineteen-thirteen

    Now international bankers rule president's and Kings

  6. Prescient vision absolutely in "Network". (the film is not actually titled "The Network")

    One of the best mass media, social theory based narratives ever released by…. the mass media – lol. It's almost impossible to line up establishment financing for a major Hollywood release that is going to be critical, in any meaningful way, of… the establishment. And, only the establishment has $50-100M for major releases, lol.

    Plato's Noble Lie (2,500 years ago -perhaps) is one view for the basic ideation of what you see taken to extremes with 20th century mass media.
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Noble_lie

    Authors from early 20th century – also prescient:

    -Lincoln Steffens

    -Eddy Bernays

    -Walter Lippman

    To mid 20th:

    -Vance Packard

    -C. Wright Mills

    -Guy Debord

    -Leo Strauss

    -Marshall McLuhan

    -All "structuralism" theorists and "semioticians" ( Lacan, Foucolt, Deluze et al – spelling of their names could be wrong)

    (google both terms above for some non-conspiracy insight into our "Society of the Spectacle" by Debord)

    Late 20th/Early 21st:

    -Chris Hedges does a great job in detailing, from an academic pov, again not indulging in conspiracy logic, the history of how much of the bullshit we see came to be. ("Empire of Illusion", "Death of the Liberal Class" are great books.)

    While I'm sure collusion and conspiracy certainly exist for groups protecting their vested interests – this is only logical, lol, it's intelligent to keep in mind that we see "facts" in such a manner to then fit them into our already, unconscious world view.

    Conspiracies, while I'm sure they exist, are also a very easy way to glom a bunch of data, "facts", ideas we don' necessarily understand or have inside access to, into suppositions – or what we think are intelligent conclusions.

    Conspiracy mindsets also strike me as kind of "I'm not in the popular group in high school" type of psychological disposition. I used to be so into conspiracy theory, lol

    The bottom line mind-f**k is that, if you're not "inside", a player on the world stage at the highest of levels, you'll never really know…

    If you're not 'Inside", all is just speculations, deduction to the best of one's ability.

    • Ah! I see the publisher of this site reads the comments – good to know.

      Love your esoteric vectoring and reading suggestions – content made available. I'm weak in this area and will get around to taking advantage of the online texts you've so graciously provided.

      My gut is this is where all the machinations we see being Alex/Icked', lol, are coming from. But then those cats have stopped inviting me to lunch, so I'm not in the loop anymore.

      Your efforts are appreciated.

      • Well, all these secrets have really been talked about openly before. It just takes research people don't want to undertake, and a perspective that has placed the human race at the very bottom of the totem pole/ignoring its nautral supirority complex to come up with the answer.

        Esentially, in order to make someone a mind slave, you must first get them to agree to being a slave. And you convince them of this by telling them that their inherited knowledge is not enough, and that your knowledge is a secret which you will eventually give them if they prove themselves worthy of it. Even if if that means that they must commit a self-sacrifice.

  7. After closing the curtains Arthur Jensen became obsessed with money as his GOD angry at false prophet/Howard Beale for meddling forces of nature (Satan) "business deal" "one holistic system" "vast multinational" "international currency".

  8. Yes. Yes. and also YES! Wow. SO true! The majority of us are soo soo dumb. Its a shame that we dont even know better when we see all of this unbelievable crap and we take it in as fact and shake our heads in agreement or disagreement as if we REALLY know what's up? Why do we believe everything on the TV could possibly be true? Man, I asked myself that over and over, Why did I fall for it? Because its an illusion that I couldn't keep my eyes and mind off of.

    A few moths ago I fo sho would watch ridiculous meaningless shows for hours upon hours and when a commercial break would come on (dispite having DVR) I would act a fool and run lightning fast into the kitchen to get a snack asap because "I gotsta hurry to make it back before the show comes back on". Haha Why? Why? and also Why? I would constantly blow people off because it would MY night when all MY shows came on. I would watch all of those ridiculous documentaries on The History Channel and believe every single thing BLAHH Really? So ridiculous. But tell me if this is true? I hear that they supposedly have video cameras in the cable boxes… and I was wondering if anybody knows who I can contact to see my footage? Haha just. kidding. Although, I would love to see my ridiculous self intensely watching television having my facial features drop and rise as I get overly involved and emotional about MY shows and then dart back and forth getting treats. Haha I would pay good money for that…

    But in all seriousness, its soo true and scaryyyy how the television can suck you in hard. Im not going to lie, despite knowing ALLL of this stuff, I still find myself starring at the television letting it get the best of me BUT thankfully God makes me realize what is up and basically slaps the remote out of my hand. Lol Although, I sometimes do want to watch it to point stuff out to my family and Im positive that they are OVER all of this Illuminati stuff! Haha I have been in the light for about half a year and I used to act ridiculous with the television, as we all now know. I feel soo stupid and embarrassed. I was one of those millions. Now I am the few. Thank you God for opening some of our eyes so that we can tell/warn others. Ive told some people about all of this stuff some agree and are super interested, but of course some look at me like Im straight up crazy. Lol I was talking my best friend (who also thinks Im crazy) about all of this stuff and I told him that everyone thought Noah was one crazy b, but jokes on them and waters on them, literally. Lol SO Im going to keep on truckin and keep on warning people and I am soo grateful that I am now on the right side. Thank God. And let us not be scared of the future but cautious. I KNOW we are going down the tubes and fast, but I have caught myself researching this stuff extremely hard and letting it scare me soo much that I would constantly be thinking about it would driving me (and others around me) bananas. I just have to tell myself that God is in control and even if my physical self dies the Illuminati/George Bush/Lady Gaga/The New World Order/"Aliens"/ television/vaccines/all of these crazy dead birds and fish/Robot pop stars/poisons in our food and blah blah blah aka Satan cannot get to me for my body is a mere vessel. Once again, thank you Vigilant Citizen for all that you do and show us, even though it scares the dook out of me.

    • And when I said "a few moths" ago I didnt mean the insect closely related to the butterfly but "months" the unit of time, used with calendars. My bad guys, my bad.

      • Oh and when I also said "find myself starring at the television" I in fact did not mean, a self-luminous celestial body consisting of a mass of gas held together by its own gravity I meant "staring" to look directly and fixedly, often with a wide-eyed gaze.

        Whoops. Sorry, me no speak well English.

    • Wow, you are so brave to admit what you've just admitted regarding your TV addiction, and how it has affected not only your way of thinking, your eating habits as well, and most importantly, how it affected your relationships with those whom you love. Too many of us, including myself, have been all too aware of our TV addiction. I'm breaking mine by setting aside reading time, and busting out the board games with fam and friends

      Very meaningful and helpful comment. Thank you.

    • God bless u Inafets, Ive been in the light for a long time now and its awesome to see another in the same radiation… keep doing what ur doing and let God lead the way, being one of the few is challenging but thats what its all about… Love and light to u and thankyou for an awesome comment post!!
