You are herecontent / Remembering Harold Pinter
By davidswanson - Posted on 31 December 2008
"The crimes of the United States have been systematic, constant, vicious, remorseless, but very few people have actually talked about them. You have to hand it to America. It has exercised a quite clinical manipulation of power worldwide while masquerading as a force for universal good. It's a brilliant, even witty, highly successful act of hypnosis." - Harold Pinter
And friends, there is no better example of this masterful art of hypnosis than the young, black Music Man himself, Barack Obama. On the very same "Democrats Now!" [sic] show that aired this Pinter segment, Amy talks with a black woman simply ecstatic about the change coming to Washington. She describes her feelings about the Obama campaign as "one of the most inspiring efforts I have been blessed to participate in," and this even as Obama golfs and swims while Gaza burns, and he plans for the surge in Afghanistan.
The PR professionals (hypnotists) in the two imperial parties, along with those in the Pentagon and our corporate media, truly control the Matrix which enslaves the entire globe. But it is with admiration that I visit sites like ADS, who allow Pinteresque truth to seep through.
