As with most of the posts on this blog, I make no attempt to include all the information available on the various subjects. The purpose of the posts is to draw attention to and raise awareness of the various subjects, and to provide links to other data sources to allow people to do their own research.
As I say in the introduction to the appendix of Psyclone, knowledge is power. The simplicity of the statement conceals its implications. Basically, the more you know, the bigger your advantage; the less you know, the bigger your disadvantage. For that reason restriction and suppression of information is a very basic social control technique. Very basic and very easy given that control of the media has been consolidated into such few hands. Failing to consider the aims and effects of the overall media output, as well as its detail, is dangerously naïve. Even a cursory glance at facts reveals mainstream media’s worrying links, policies and agendas. Whatever you see on television, hear on the radio, or read in the newspapers has been, at the very least, allowed. More often than not though, it has been meticulously designed using principles of behavioural psychology and linguistics toward very specific aims. Put another way, if your channels of information are confined to those listed above, then your awareness, your reality, is being manipulated and compromised.
If you don’t have time at this moment to give this, or any other post on this blog, the attention it needs you can bookmark it and/or save it as a pdf and read it (and the data at the provided links) another time. All of the information shared through any of the Psyclone outlets (book, website, blogs) is important enough to spend time over.
Today is the anniversary of the 2005 London Bombings. Any mention in the mainstream media will probably be along the lines of reinforcing the official narrative and justification for the, as the July Seventh Truth Campaign describes it, ‘imposition of Draconian new legislation that criminalises protest, dissent and opposition to the government, its policies and the way in which it enforces them.’
On this day, seven years ago, London was hit by a series of explosions. 56 people were killed and 700 injured. You probably think you know what happened that day. But you don’t.
The police have, from the onset of their investigation, chosen to withhold from the public almost every bit of evidence they claim to have and have provably lied about several aspects of the London Bombings.
The mainstream news has wilfully spread false, unsubstantiated and unverifiable information, while choosing to completely ignore the numerous inconsistencies and discrepancies in the official story
The government finally, after a year, presented us with their official ‘narrative’ concerning the event. Within hours it was shown to contain numerous errors, a fact since admitted by the Home Secretary John Reid. They have continuously rejected calls for a full, independent public inquiry. Tony Blair himself described such an inquiry as a ‘ludicrous diversion’. What don’t they want us to find out?
The following is possibly one of the best documentaries of the day. The documentary runs to a little over two hours and can also be viewed parts through YouTube. Other full-length versions can be found at http://veehd.com/video/4509871_7-7-Seeds-of-Deconstruction and http://stagevu.com/video/bzmyohjuatvm and http://blip.tv/file/3985398 (The 700+MB file can also be downloaded as a torrent)
July Seventh Truth Campaign provides comprehensive (very comprehensive) research into the events of that day. Their website is an essential resource for understanding the issues. J7 are campaigning for a full public inquiry, in the name of peace, truth and justice, and dedicated to all the innocent victims, injured and their families.
‘The Magic Bomb Theory’ challenges the validity of the official accounts specifically regarding the train bombing. The article focuses on the experience of Bruce Lait, a survivor from the train. In “I was in tube bomb carriage – and survived”, the Cambridge Evening News article mentioned in ‘The Magic Bomb Theory’, Lait’s description of events brings into question the official narrative in several ways. For instance, the thought-provoking comment made by a policemen as Ben and his dance partner were helped of the train, ” a policeman pointed out where the bomb had been. “The policeman said ‘mind that hole, that’s where the bomb was’. The metal was pushed upwards as if the bomb was underneath the train. They seem to think the bomb was left in a bag, but I don’t remember anybody being where the bomb was, or any bag,”A copy of the report is available here.
The Center for Research on Globalisation hosts a page of analysis and reports from a variety of credentialed sources, which are invaluable in balancing official reports and responses with behind the scenes information and penitent questions.
