Power Elite Bans Classic Books in US, Seeks Exclusive Narrative

in the Rye dropped from US school curriculum ... Schools
in America are to drop classic books such as Harper Lee's To
Kill a Mockingbird and JD Salinger's Catcher in the Rye
from their curriculum in favour of 'informational texts'. American
literature classics are to be replaced by insulation manuals and
plant inventories in US classrooms by 2014. A new school curriculum
which will affect 46 out of 50 states will make it compulsory for
at least 70 per cent of books studied to be non-fiction, in an effort
to ready pupils for the workplace. RT
Social Theme: Telling stories is so "last year."
451 and other books about censorship got it wrong. The powers-that-be
don't want to ban books, they want to ban STORIES.
This is the
inescapable conclusion for those of us who believe in directed history.
Over the past decade of covering the world for various proprietary
blogs, it's become clear to us that most human events are manipulated
by a small, sociopathic elite that controls central banking around
control existed in previous millennia we are not in a position to
say. But it would be our perspective avoiding a discussion
of past civilizations that the overt control of Money Power
has been growing, not diminishing, of late.
perhaps these things go in cycles. In that case it is our misfortune
to live at the very apex of one such cycle and our good fortune
to see thanks to the Internet Reformation that it
How do we know
it is ending? Because the top elites are increasingly turning to
the bluntest weapons in their fight to maintain power. Economic
depression, military conflict and authoritarian democracy are all
modern tools of repression and control. The idea is to create world
government and nothing is to stop that progression.
By far the
most ubiquitous method of control and persuasion is what we call
the dominant social theme. This is usually a scarcity-based meme
disseminated by the power elite via its controlled think tanks,
media and universities and then acted on via its globalist facilities
and political methodologies.
memes are STORIES aimed at the middle class and designed to frighten
people into giving up wealth and power to specially designed internationalist
institutions. Food, water and energy scarcity along with overpopulation
and various military and terrorrist "threats" are the
favorite tools of the top elites. None of the disseminated tales
But it doesn't
matter whether they are true or not. The propagation and saturation
of these stories fables are most important to the
narrative that the elites want to establish.
The chief narrative
is that of the "small world." The world is to be seen
as inevitably becoming "one." It is an ineluctable ascension
to be desired and nurtured. It is, of course, for this reason that
all talk of previous high civilizations is squelched. Whether they
existed or not is not debatable, as the debate will never be held.
There is only
one civilization. It was launched 5,000 years ago and world government
will be its crowning glory.
This is the
story. This is the narrative. There cannot be any other. And it
is not enough for the elites to control the CONVERSATION. Now, apparently,
they want to control the story line, as well.
one could argue that with books like Catcher in the Rye they
control the story line anyway. But apparently, informal control
was not enough. Now the control is to be formalized. If stories
are to be written, they will be written by approved authors. If
they are to be read, it will be within a predetermined cordon sanitaire.
There are to
be no other gods but the god of the single story the ONE
... the single, all-encompassing plotline leading inevitably towards
a gaily decorated single world with one ruling, elite authority.
After which, from what we can tell, genocide will begin in earnest.
Here's more from the RT article:
as JD Salinger's Catcher in the Rye and Harper Lee's To
Kill a Mockingbird will be replaced by "informational
texts" approved by the Common Core State Standards.
non-fiction texts include Recommended Levels of Insulation by
the US Environmental Protection Agency, and the Invasive Plant
Inventory, by California's Invasive Plant Council.
The new educational
standards have the backing of the influential National Governors'
Association and the Council of Chief State School Officers, and
are being part-funded by a grant from the Bill & Melinda Gates
of the directive argue that it will help pupils to develop the
ability to write concisely and factually, which will be more useful
in the workplace than a knowledge of Shakespeare.
Poor Bill Gates!
A man who once dreamt of controlling his own US$100 billion fortune,
he was attacked by the US government over a putative monopoly and
then stripped of control of his resources and even his professional
aspirations by a banking elite that will not tolerate any other
monetary control but its own.
This is the
reason its button man, Warren Buffett has been going from wealthy
individual to wealthy individual like a honey bee, seeking to sip
the sweet nectar of their vast good fortune by suggesting full scale
donations to charities he controls. It is not an eleemosynary exercise
but one of confiscation.
The top elite
controls trillions but mere billionaires are not to be allowed.
They must "give back" to the community. You see, in the
brave new world of the Elite Narrative, a mere billionaire is nothing
but the lowliest peon, someone to be efficiently reduced to penury.
He or she is not to leave funds to family but instead to worthy
charities and reputable causes.
This is what
Bill Gates now confronts. After building one of the most successful
companies in the world he now finds himself denuded of his fortune
while his name is attached to the blackest kind of medical engineering
via vaccinations and now if this article is correct
the initiation of purposeful illiteracy.
It is ever
thus these days. Cross the top elites and they will efficiently
strip you of your resources and then blacken your name by association.
They do this by manipulating the sociopolitical and economic narrative.
This is why storytellers are in such demand and why the ability
to tell a convincing story is a ticket to wealth, fame and power
in the modern day.
It is why such
tales are ever more strictly controlled, as well. Copyright and
other legal engineering is brought to bear to ensure that the narratives
produced and disseminated are the approved ones.
It is for this
reason what we call the Internet Reformation has been such a setback
to the power elite. The carefully crafted universe that has descended
on the world like a gigantic bubble has been pricked. As it has
collapsed, truth has leaked in.
We try to purvey
some of that truth every day and so do others. We would even argue
a critical mass has been reached and there is nothing much the elites
can do to control the narrative anymore. They are trying, too, of
course. But as happened with the Gutenberg press, once the truth
emerges it tends to sweep the field.
It must be
a waking nightmare for the top elites. Much of the progress of the
past century has been undone. Memes have been exposed. Promotions
have been capsized.
intimidation are going to have to be substituted for mind control
and promotional suasion.
And, of course,
censorship, too. The narratives of modern civilization are now seen
as too powerful to be left in the hands of amateurs.
It's kind of
pitiful, actually. It has no chance of working. Tale telling is
as powerful a drive as sex or hunger. It cannot be controlled by
regulation or a change in curriculum.
It is a testimony to their desperation and a further affirmation
of the power of the Internet Reformation.
