Edward Bernays: Propaganda og Public Relations

10. mai 2010

Edward Lous Bernays (1891 – 1995) var en amerikansk pioneer i sitt arbeid med public relations (Norge: informasjon og samfunnskontakt), og han blir ofte referert til som grunnleggeren av public relations.

Bernays kombinerte ideene til Gustave Le Bon og Wilfred Trotter om massepsykologi med ideene til hans onkel Sigmund Freud om psykoanalyse. Bernays var en av de første som manipulerte offentlig mening/oppfatning (public opinion) ved å bruke ubevisstheten.

Nigel Farage – European Parliament

15. april 2010
EU’s 10-year central economic plan will fail again – Nigel Farage MEP

We’re in the presence of a great man today, the president of Europe, a man who is so important he is beyond criticism, beyond reproach, he is the king of the modern political class, he is the modern day Zeus, and he intends to rule us from Mt Berlaymont and woe betide anybody that questions his authority or questions his dignity or they will face severe punishment. Indeed, in my case the last time we met and I had one or two things to say the parliament imposed the maximum possible fine, and I’m told if I say anything that upsets you the microphone will be cut off. Well, what price free speech, what price democracy?

But you’ve come back to us today, and now with the approval of Mr Sarkozy and Angela Merkel you’re the head of a new economic government for 500 million people. And you’ve launched your 10-year plan, your wish list, and I just wonder, have you remembered what happened to the last 10-year plan, that was launched in 2000? It was launched in this parliament to much acclaim, it was a total and utter crippling failure even before the global recession hit. And in fact, all centralised EU plans fail: just look at the disasterous, ruinous Common Fisheries Policy. And now, your beloved euro has failed. It’s failed politically at its first major hurdle, you weren’t able to come up with a plan at that summit, you can’t bail out Greece without the International Monetary Fund coming in to save, at least for the moment, your euro dream. And yet, Mr van Rompuy, your plans seems to be ‘we’re losing, we’re failing, let’s have more of the same, let’s have more Europe, let’s have more failure’.

But what really matters is the loss of democracy here. You have not been elected. You are not accountable, there is no mechanism for the peoples of Europe to remove you. It was Zeus of course that kidnapped Europa, my fear is you are kidnapping our democracy. You are only here because that Lisbon Treaty went through, without the British people being given the referendum that they were promised, and as far as we are concerned, this is unfinished business. People fought and died so that we could be an independent, self-governing, democratic nation that was able to hire and fire its leaders, and no-one that believes in democracy will accept the post of President of the European Union. Thank you.

Heisann.

Jeg følte det var på tide å poste et nytt innlegg. Bidraget vil ikke være så stort. Men ta en titt på disse tre små videosnuttene.

Dub FX med Love Someone

Its possible to love someone
and not treat them in the way that you want
its possible to see your eyes
be the devil in disguise
with another front-end

its possible to change this world
revolutionize the boys and girls
its possible to educate the next generation
ever rule the world someday now

its possible to love someone
and not treat them in the way that you want
its possible to see your eyes
be the devil in disguise
with another front-end

its possible to change this world
revolutionize the boys and girls

ever rule the world

now the changing times of the 21th century
means nothing to me cause I would rather be
at the beginning of time
earth would be mine livin in luxury-hee
discovering a world out there
believing in the sun, earth, water and air
take me there
so I can see the world bloom
standing on a sea cliff howling at the moon
creating a world for the open minded
a unique perception a true decided
I know we can find it
its a matter of where and when we collectively decided

the world is not a vicious place
its just the way we’ve been raised
discovering time and space
I know we that could make a change
rearrange the way that we appreciate the world today

its possible to love someone
and not treat them in the way that you want
its possible to see your eyes
be the devil in disguise
with another front-end

ever rule the world someday

now as I start to put my mind into words
I stall I fall im losing it all
my inhibition the thought of wasting away
the fact that the music’s at a place not far away yet i stray
stick to my world
in love with my life my beliefs and my girl
but is it luck that our love is crazy
place the human race to get me wrong i still think we could change
but this life
the fact that time exists
were here
we don’t come equipped with it all

half the fun is learning
im having a ball
the world keeps turning
my road is small but I make a change
I hope youre feeling the same way
I’ll be sayin’ say what i say

its possible to love someone
and not treat them in the way that you want
