I rerun this Starfield article every so often, just to push the wheel another turn. Each time I try to write a new introduction. Here is one.
After working as a reporter for 30 years, I've come to understand a few things about public reaction to the truth. People like to say they're enlightened. They like to say they've seen through the major propaganda operations that are launched and are spinning all around us. But when you bulldoze a hole in a part of the Matrix where certain subjects are engraved on stone pillars, and when those subjects are firmly entrenched in the public mind as foundations of Reality, the usual response is silent shock.
Even when people are able to accept the truth, they tend toward silence. They don't pass the truth on.
Retired propaganda master, Ellis Medavoy, whom I interview in THE MATRIX REVEALED, once explained it to me this way:
"You've taken them out of a state of hypnosis, a state of trance, but the truth you're giving them puts them in another trance. In that part of their mind where they've been asleep for so long, they're used to that narcosis. So even though they see truth now, they respond with new sleep. It's not really an awakening at all. It's as if they've walked out of one war zone into another, dazed."
Ellis describes perfectly what happens to many people when they see the truth of medical murder in the US. It particularly happens because there is no logical way to understand it, given the expectations people have about what murder is, what murder means.
And there's another problem. As you'll see, the figures on medically caused death in America I'm citing come from an author with absolutely impeccable mainstream credentials. The review she wrote was published in one of the most prestigious medical journals in the world. It was all "on the up and up."
That's precisely why I use her figures, rather than those compiled by outsiders, who, by the way, probably have better numbers that are even more chilling.
I've had people stare blankly at me after a discussion of the interview below and say, outright, "This is impossible. It can't be true. You see, if a really respected doctor is making these claims, and if her review is published in a prestigious journal, then mainstream doctors and medical schools and government would have to react. They would have to clean house."
But they don't.
And that is called a clue. We are talking about something similar to the experience of the German people during the rise of Hitler. They went along. They told themselves stories to make it all right. They used the familiar tricks of denial.
This is what makes the Matrix the Matrix.
