This should ring alarm bells for anyone who has even the most basic grasp of history’‘If you have a vaccination passport which you need to get into your supermarket, you’re not actually free anymore.
Any student of military history will tell you: wars don’t just happen.
They are always foreshadowed by a propaganda operation intended to soften up the target, wear people down, weaken their resolve to fight.
The most successful operations come down to this simple strategy: identify your enemy, segregate, isolate, then annihilate.
Piers Robinson, co-director of the Organization for Propaganda Studies, is an internationally recognized expert on propaganda, but not just any propaganda.
His focus is on conflict and war and the role of propaganda within that framework. He is also an associate researcher with the Working Group on Propaganda and the 9/11 ‘War on Terror’ and has served as an advisor to NATO leaders.
From 2016 to 2019, Professor Robinson chaired the department of politics, society and political journalism at the University of Sheffield.
He spoke at length about the propaganda aspects of Covid-19 in an Aug. 4 interview with Asia Pacific Today of Australia.
Covid-19 is probably one of the biggest propaganda operations we’ve seen in history because of the global nature and the resources put into it,” Robinson said. “It was pretty clear from the beginning that propaganda was being employed.
In the U.S. one of the main spigots of propaganda has been Dr. Anthony Fauci and the media’s elevation of this man to god-like status, hanging on his every word and never pressing him to provide data to back up his constantly swerving pronouncements. Every Western government has their version of Fauci, spouting ever-changing, confusing information meant to keep the population off balance, afraid and confused.
A fearful, dazed and weary public is less able to resist the dizzying array of draconian policies coming from governments, from facemask rules and incessant testing to quarantines of the healthy and mandatory mass vaccinations.
In his latest effort to prepare Americans for even greater medical tyranny, Fauci got on national TV Aug. 8 and said, “a flood” of new Covid vaccine mandates are coming down the pike as soon as the shots get FDA approval, which he expects to happen as soon as next month.
Corporations are already piling on. Forbes reported Aug. 8 that companies are not only threatening to fire the unvaccinated; they are beginning to tack on a special surcharge of up to $50 for employees, deducting it from the paychecks of those who refuse the experimental shot.
Fauci has literally terrorized the American public for 18 months, wearing them down with a steady diet of propaganda.
Which gets us back to Robinson, who has decades of studies under his belt in the art of propaganda in war time.
After watching the above video, see my all my reports and articles on this topic and you will begin to understand how the Covid narrative has been carefully controlled from the outset, with a clear end game in sight. The ‘Rona Chronicles.
Robinson documents how the British government sought expert advice from behavioral psychologists on how to use the media to manipulate public opinion by ratcheting up the level of fear surrounding the Covid pandemic.
He cited U.K. government documents from March 2020 referencing groups skilled in applied psychology. They helped the government craft a plan of propaganda to drive a fear-based narrative with the goal of causing behavioral change.
One such group was SPI-B or the Independent Scientific Influenza Group on Behaviors.
“The key part of SPI-B’s behavioral change strategy that seems to have been adopted was to ‘persuade through fear,’” Robinson said.
The persuasion section of the document states: “A substantial number of people still do not feel sufficiently personally threatened.”
Appendix B of the documents lists 10 options that can be used to increase social distancing in the public.
Option 2 advises: “Use media to increase sense of personal threat.”
SPI-B recommendations were to increase the sense of personal threat and “use hard hitting emotional messaging.” This included taglines such as:
“Anyone can get it. Anyone can spread it.”
“Don’t put your friends and family in danger.”
“Stay home for your family. Don’t put their lives in danger.”
“If you go out, you can spread it. People will die.”
Use of hysterical media headlines was another big part of the strategy.
Big Tech quickly agreed to come on board with the censoring of all competing narratives that countered the fear-based approach.
If that didn’t work, the psychologists argued for shame and approval tactics.
SPI-B psychologists knew that fear on its own would not persuade everyone. Messaging needed to be tailored to take into account different “motivational levers.”
Thus, the document suggested using both social approval and disapproval, with government compulsion as a backup, as follows:
Option 6: Use and promote social approval for desired behaviors.
Option 7: Consider enacting legislation to compel required behaviors.
Option 8: Consider use of social disapproval for failure to comply.
As if on cue, the “heroes and covidiots” narrative began to appear in the “news.”
The word “covidiots” was coined in spring 2020 by The Economist, the official magazine of the world’s most elite globalists. The magazine described “covidiots” as follows:
“The term “covidiot” describes any and every person behaving stupidly or irresponsibly as the epidemic spreads. Sometime in early March the word was born, and, almost as fast as the virus spread, so did instances of covidiotic behavior.”
The U.S. government was party to similar discussions about how to control the media narrative about Covid at Event 201 in October 2019, two months before the virus was discovered in China.
In Germany, equally insidious propaganda strategies have been documented within the so-called “Panic Paper,” a leaked document from the German Department of Interior that shows the population was deliberately driven to panic by politicians and mainstream media.
Among other things, the Panic Paper calls for children to be made to feel responsible “for the painful tortured death of their parents and grandparents if they do not follow the corona rules,” that is, if they do not constantly wash their hands, put on masks and avoid contact with their grandparents.
Scientific data shows children are not efficient spreaders of the virus but that couldn’t be allowed to disrupt the fear-based narrative. They were masked and socially distanced, their schools shut down, their social lives destroyed, leading to a record number of teen suicides.
It became obvious to Robinson that the extreme government responses had nothing to do with public health.
“What has becoming increasingly clear is this is not being driven by a health crisis,” he said. “We are seeing profound changes in our society.”
The changes include everything from the introduction of digital currencies and vaccine passports with scannable QR codes, to the regulation of worship services and small businesses.
The World Economic Forum immediately seized on the Covid pandemic as an “opportunity” to change the economic, political and social structure of the free world. Elites at the WEF, United Nations, the British Royal family, the Vatican, World Bank and International Monetary Fund did not hide their excitement about the “opportunity” that came with a global pandemic. In fact they were very open about it, writing books, making speeches and participating in glitzy promotional videos posted to YouTube.
“What we seem to have here are political actors exploiting the circumstances for political, economic and social objectives,” Robinson said. “It’s certainly very clear for example, organizations such as the World Economic Forum had a very specific vision from the very beginning on how to respond to Covid and had a very specific vision for the future, talking about the Fourth Industrial Revolution, smart cities and so on, and it would appear that actors such as that are using and exploiting Covid for substantial political, economic and social restructuring.”
The role of propaganda then becomes key because it conditions people to accept these drastic changes without any scrutiny or public debate, “because people are thinking this is all about a virus and people are scared. So all of the transformative changes are being swept through without any scrutiny. This is very, very dangerous. A terrified population has extracted a huge opportunity for people with agendas who have the power to realize that.
“So we are moving into pretty worrying territory now, in terms of how governments are behaving.”
Those who speak out against the propaganda start to be treated as the “other.”
The virus now becomes an engine to drive society to vaccine passports, a digital ID system and a social-credit scoring system similar to what’s used in China to keep people toeing the government line.
“All of these seem to revolve around a major restructuring of society, major redistribution of wealth, much more control, much less democracy,” Robinson said.
