you know beforehand that it would never appear in print. I am paid weekly
for keeping my honest opinions out of the paper I am connected with.
Others of you are paid similar salaries for similar things, and any of you
who would be so foolish as to write honest opinions would be out on the
streets looking for another job.

are intellectual prostitutes.”
The Media words are used to disguise, not to illuminate, action: You liberate a city by destroying it. Words are used to confuse, so that at election time people will solemnly vote against their own interests. This is becoming a crisis in Taiwan, the masses though mostly educated, are unable to do the simplest things, to think. The Taiwanese are ordered and manipulated to not think and to do believe in what the media enforces. To the foreigners who wish to dictate Taiwan, they have realized that any dictator would admire the uniformity and obedience of the media. Their goal is to keep the bewildered herd bewildered. It’s unnecessary for them to trouble themselves with what’s happening in the world. In fact, it’s undesirable, if they see too much of reality they may set themselves to change it.
The Media serve to divert the unwashed masses and reinforce the basic social values: passivity, submissiveness to authority, the overriding virtue of greed and personal gain, lack of concern for others, fear of real or imagined enemies, and much more. This is only the beginning of brainwashing in society, and the dictators of the world love it, they thrive for conformity. James Soong, Lien Chan, Jiang Zhe Ming, and all dictators from the past have or had used this form of propaganda. They not only use it to profit money, greed, and suffrage of the people, they enjoy seeing the masses fail. The owners and managers of the press determine which person, which facts, which version of the facts, and which ideas shall reach the public. This makes the overly rich foreigners inhabiting Taiwan such a dangerous parasite in our culture. We must cleanse ourselves free of these parasites, and guide them to where they want to be, and belong.
There is no such thing, at this date of the world’s history, as an independent press. You know it and I know it. This is why we as people must decide for ourselves what is real and what is not. We must understand some people fight for money and greed, and some Taiwanese fight for foundation of Taiwan; it is easy to see which one is which. It is hard to convince the people who have no mind to think, because the great masses of the people... more easily fall victims to a big lie than a small one.
It has been demonstrated that well within two minutes of watching television, most people enter a hypnotic alpha state bordering on theta. Viewers in this state are no longer able to critically evaluate, discern, or pass judgment from their own moral database on the material being viewed. The information just flows, unimpeded, into their subconscious year in and year out. Taiwan faces this problem, for we live in a pop culture with no alternative, we are run by overly rich people, and foreigners plan to take over what is ours. Think of the press as a great keyboard on which the foreigners can play. The Chinese tyrants have the greatest admiration for Taiwan’s propaganda. Experts who have had the best training in the world, in the field of advertising, and have mastered the techniques with exceptional proficiency... carry out propaganda in Taiwan It is are subtle and persuasive; the Chinese are crude and obvious... The Chinese thinks that the fundamental difference between China, with respect to propaganda, is quite simple. Taiwanese tend to believe yours... and the Chinese tyrants tend to disbelieve theirs.
For media to work the process of media has to be conscious, or it would not be carried out with sufficient precision, but it also has to be unconscious, or it would bring with it a feeling of falsity and hence of guilt... To tell deliberate lies while genuinely believing in them, to forget any fact that has become inconvenient, and then, when it becomes necessary again, to draw it back from oblivion for just so long as it is needed, to deny the existence of objective reality and all the while to take account of the reality which one denies, all this is indispensably necessary.
The foreigners have the greatest opportunity the world has ever seen, as long as they remain honest, which will be as long as they can keep the attention of Taiwanese alive. If they once become inattentive to public affairs, foreigner would all become wolves.
Media has brought us information, it has also distorted information, and we as people must decide the truth. We must not listen to one side, and conform, we must stick to what we believe and study in what we stand by. Taiwanese must not stand for this anymore, we must construct our foundation, fix the problems, and fight for a better tomorrow.
