Civil War, How it Was Instigated and Kept Alive for 40 Years by Certain
Elite Powers and How and Why They Chose to Benefit while Tearing
Families in Two and Keeping America Paralyzed. Why America’s “Privileged
Class” — its “royalty,” “blue bloods” — started a “culture war” against
the middle class, working class, the poor…and the educated, artists,
and humanists in the early 1970s. How their fear of 60s activism
panicked them into into an all-out assault against elements that
threatened their wealth and privilege in all institutions of American
society — media, education, medicine, government, politics, publication,
religion, especially higher education, and so on — and restructured
them. How it continues today: blatantly so in the Tea Party movement,
the Republican Party, the Wall Street giveaways at the expense of jobs,
rampant anti-environmentalism and anti-minority, -immigrant laws and
attacks…not to mention politicians like Congressman Barton who kowtow to
corporations, even defending British Petroleum from having to pay for
its atrocious spill, and a candidate (Republican of course, and in
Arizona, not coincidentally) for a governor’s race who would actually
run on the platform of doing away with Social Security and Medicare.

Description of Audio

Others have asserted that the media played a large and active part in
the “disappearance” of this generation.  It has been noted, for example,
as simply one indicator, that 90% of youth protests were reported by
the media in 1969, but only 20 to 25% were covered in 1970-71, and only
1% of such dissident activities could be found in the media coverage of

This decline was part of a concerted effort by the media, in
collusion with the threatened established sectors of society, to
actively put a lid on student and youthful dissent and unrest.

I myself have knowledge and
personal experience of how a similar suppression at exactly this time
was perpetrated on university campuses.  Specifically, at the college I
was attending — Franklin and Marshall College in Lancaster, Pennsylvania
— and other colleges and universities around the country, wealthy
alumni threatened to withdraw funding unless (1) certain faculty
members, considered “threatening” to established interests, were fired,
(2) certain programs — considered too innovative, “disruptive,” or
“instigative” — were cut back or eliminated, and (3) certain
“unorthodox,” “undisciplined,” or “publicly disrespectful” student
behaviors were discouraged, suppressed, and/or harshly responded to and
clamped down on.

Indeed, such active “blacklisting” of
counterculture figures, behavior, and values on university campuses
seemed to be part of a general dictum across institutions — including
publishing, films, TV, education at all levels, medicine and science,
and the work place — to actively fight back at what was seen as dire
threats to traditional values calculated to placate the masses and keep
them, as for hundreds of years, feeling nervous, unworthy, inferior, and
slavish in relation to the wealthy and powerful.

With these considerations, it is
understandable that in 1971 and 1972 — despite increasing unrest and
demonstrations on college campuses, increasing liberalization of values
among all age groups and growing liberal and counterculture political
power — there would be a number of books published and widely reviewed
which, closing their eyes on all this, instead presented dubious
evidence and selectively chosen incidents to make a case for a so-called
“conservative backlash,” which there is no doubt the authors earnestly
hoped for and fervently sought to bring about in their proclamation of

This may be seen as the beginnings of the use of “The Big Lie”
as a major, sometimes the only strategy, in conservatives attempts to
fight back against this outpouring of sensitivity to injustice at all

However, its more recent re-emergence in
contemporary America and its rise to the heights of skillful political
brandishment  in the hands, first, of Ronald Reagan and George Bush,
Sr., and then later to its most pervasive use, however awkwardly and
skill-less, during the eight years of George W. Bush, where Bush,
Cheney, Rumsfeld, Rove, and others took it to such moronic lengths they
eventually were seen to be what they were — big lies, with no attempt to
educate the public at all; but simply to cover up and to manipulate,
like common criminals would. (Note, that the results of this are
discussed, with a fair amount of humor, in another piece I’ve written
for this site titled “Naked Republicans.”) 

Nevertheless, these later major
uses, in fact the evolution of The Big Lie into the ONLY strategy of
Republican politics may find its beginnings in such publications as
these books from the early 70s, as well as to its highly skilled, and
much documented, use by Richard Nixon throughout his political career.


Sample Quotes

success of The Big Lie; and its eventual morphing into the Big Web of
Deceit, more easily termed The Matrix

Whereas the 60s youth had only their
enthusiasm and their heartfelt passion to allow a world of freedom, and
all the other values espoused in our Constitution, they were up against
huge entrenched, and filthy with wealth, nameless puppeteers.  Their
wealth got them any support they wanted for anything.  And sensing a
threat to the established quo, hearing about idealistic notions of
equality, freedom, and such — knowing that their positions depended not
on the actual enjoyment of the masses of their supposed “freedoms” but
only their being convinced that they had them. 

So it was a huge threat to see masses of
people proclaiming their rights and actually daring to use them.  They
could be slowed down in using their rights by having them violently
bludgeoned by police and riled up construction workers in Chicago; they
could be taken off track perhaps, by having several of them killed at
Kent State; and they could be continually arranged to be misreported in
the media and maligned as well.  But this seemed to make them only more
Still, these puppeteers owned the media and therefore
controlled what the public would be told; they were the main sources of
income for universities across the country, so they controlled what
would be rolled out as truth and knowledge; and ultimately they could
fund politicians and speakers, and radio and TV show hosts who would
speak their Big Lies.  So they really had all the weapons to roundly put
down this band of idealists whose only weapons were truth, and
righteous feeling, and passion of youth, and clarity of youthful mind.

So it was no contest, especially as only
one side was fully aware that they were at war; indeed the other side —
most of them — having no inkling of the powers behind the scenes (that
would of course be left out of the history and sociology books they had
read — funded by the puppeteers of course).  So, many of them even began
to believe that they had lost, and that most Americans were lashing
back at them.  This would be disheartening to many; especially to those
who had seen the coming together of middle class, upper middle class,
and working class to join in mass movements like the one million who
showed up from all over the country to be at Moratorium Day in November
15, 1970

believing the media probably had a big influence on taking the wind out
of the sails of many of the youth.  And still others, feeling they must
be wrong because they had now, according to the media, become the enemy
to those they hoped would see the wisdom of these values that basically
came from them, i.e., their parents and the liberal worlds they grew up
in!  Their response, unfortunately, was to try to reintegrate with the
society they had thrown behind them, but now saw as the only one
possible. Still, they retained their values, and it became common to
hear that these motivated youth decided on a strategy of playing the
game to gain entrance to the positions of power and to change the
structures of violence and hatred from within.
