Propaganda is the art of overwhelming logic

Propaganda is the art of overwhelming logic

One type of mind control involves defeating logic as a method of thinking.

Modern formulations of basic logic begin with the statement: You can’t have A and not-A. Which is a way of saying contradictions are unacceptable.

So it’s no surprise that mind control attempts to introduce contradictions into rational processes.

You see this in propaganda.

For example: People who are vaccinated are in danger from those who are unvaccinated. (“Keep your unvaccinated child away from my vaccinated child.”)

There is a concealed contradiction here. You can see it by merely defining (according to conventional terms) the meaning of “vaccinated.”

It means “immune,” “protected from contracting the disease targeted by the vaccine.”

But if the vaccinated person is protected and immune, then coming into contact with an unvaccinated person will bring no danger.

Therefore, the notion that vaccinated people are A) protected but not-A) in danger is absurd, a contradiction.

The easiest way to defeat logic is through deficient education. Never teach logic. Ignore it. Instead, teach specific values. Teach anything except logic. Don’t teach children how to spot contradictions.

A deficient education plus tons of ceaseless propaganda=mind control.

Logic is a significant problem for people who want a closed and unfree society. Teaching logic tends to produce sharp and independent minds.

Logic produces personal power.

Here is another example of non-logic: The ballot initiative passed last November by the voters of Maui County is illegal, because it set up a new law regarding commercial agriculture, when in fact commercial agriculture is regulated by state and federal laws, which trump county laws.

There are several ways of attacking this proposition, but the most basic way is:

The ballot initiative was not aimed at commercial agriculture. It called for a moratorium on all Monsanto/Dow experiments using non-commercial GMOs.

In what has become a federal court case, the judge and the lawyers for Dow/Monsanto are proceeding from a false basic premise.

Of course, the failure in this case is a willful ignoring of the facts. The argument is: A is B. No it isn’t. A is A.

There are a number of arguments afloat these days which proceed this way:

“The science concerning ABC is settled.”

“’Settled’ means ‘true.’”

“Therefore the science concerning ABC is true.”

However, on closer inspection, “settled” means “there is a consensus among officially favored scientists.”

Science doesn’t operate according to what officially favored scientists claim. It doesn’t operate according to consensus at all. It operates according to what is true and valid—and the best way to ascertain that is through the broadest possible analysis accomplished by a wide variety of independent researchers, who attempt to replicate prior experimental results.

Even then, there is always room for reasoned dissent.

The Matrix Revealed

There is much, much more I could write about logic. The issues I raise in this article are basic and should be addressed in every high school, in great detail, with many illustrations.

For instance: what are the full tacit implications of the statement found at the end of every television drug ad—“ask your doctor if X is right for you.”

For instance (at a more sophisticated level): when the press reports a new outbreak of disease, claiming it is caused by a particular virus…how was that assertion determined? On what grounds do scientists say they have found the virus that causes the disease?

I ran headlong into that one while writing my first book, AIDS Inc.: Scandal of the Century, and the further I investigated HIV as “the cause of AIDS,” the more I was stunned by the lack of logic present in the argument.

Logic is a sword.

Learning its many uses, while still young, creates formidable students and citizens.

Propaganda is the art of overwhelming logic.

It works, when the mind is unprepared.

    In the area of logic studies,…


    Jon’s Matrix Revealed collection includes…

    “[Jon’s] complete 18-lesson course, LOGIC AND ANALYSIS [for bright high school students], which includes the written teacher’s manual and audios to guide you… This is a new way to teach logic, the subject that has been missing from schools for decades.”

    (more details at

    …and, a pdf copy of his AIDS Inc book.


    Jon’s Power Outside The Matrix collection includes…

    “a long section called: Analyzing Information in the Age of Disinformation.

    “This section is filled with specific examples of my past investigations. Based on 25 years of experience, it shows you how to take apart and put together data that lead to valid conclusions.

    “It is far more than a logic course.

    “It’s an advanced approach to analysis.”

    …and, a pdf copy of his AIDS Inc book.


    More details on “Analyzing Information in the Age of Disinformation”:

    — Many real-world examples on how to deeply analyze information. Focus on analyzing media reports — both main stream and alternative reports. And, you diving in and doing your own in-depth research on your topic of choice — how to approach that. Cases that Jon has cracked in his 30 years as an investigative journalist.

    — Regarding Analyzing Information in the Age of Disinformation, Jon writes the following in an article titled “Ebola for alert minds: the art of the covert narrative”:

    “When a researcher or an investigator suspects he is looking at an artificial narrative, a storyline that is floated to achieve a hidden agenda, he has to deal with one overriding question:

    “How deep does he want to go, in order to root out the potential lies and false material? Into how basic a level of the narrative does he want to cut, to see what leaks out?”

    LOL… it’s all propaganda!

    The Patriot Act: Not patriotic at all when you lose freedom.

    Net Neutrality: Anything but neutral.

    DHS: What security? They stage False Flags, fund Islamist’s groups and leave the borders open..

    WAR ON DRUGS? When they, themselves bring the drugs into the USA. Why not have a real War on drugs, you know, like the Big Pharma’s drugs?

    WAR ON TERRORISM? When war itself is terrorism.

    Feel free to add some more.

    Nice. Science cannot be settled and be science. Settled science is dogmatic religion selling snake-oil.

  4. ozziethinker says:

    Your posts are never bad, Jon.

    This one is important.

    While I’m about it, I have a couple more links you might see value in investigating:

    Have they PAID the [pound sterling] 60 million or this premature celebration? BIG news, for you/us, if so, I feel.

    CDC “coming clean”?

    We don’t operate on logic. We operate on cognitive bias.

    Nice post Jon – there’s certainly much illogical thought process with the vaccinated in constant fear of unvaccinated. Interestingly, one of the self-proclaimed vaxx experts (Orac of Respectful Insolence) explained this fear by stating “no vaccine is 100% effective,” but neglected to say just how effective they supposedly are? (e.g., 90%, 88%, 70%?).

    However, I recall recently another self-proclaimed vaxx expert from Arizona (pediatrician) state that vaccines are “about 95%” effective. If true, those are pretty darn good percentages. I would take those percentages for winning the lotto any day! So why don the vaccinated go on their merry way and quit worrying about the unvaccinated. If 95% effectiveness isn’t good enough for them, perhaps they should invest in a CDC hazmat suit. I hear there’s some leftover for sale from the Ebola crisis.

    If on the other hand, the vaxx effectiveness rates are all trumped-up by the vaxx makers and they’re marginally effective, then the vaccinated were duped and should sue Merck & friends for a defective product!

    The vaxx pushers have no logic, the vaccinated are illogical and the legislators supporting SB277 definitely have no logic!

      I’d like to see a couple of hundred of them out the front of the CDC building demanding more effective vaccines.

      Problem with product? Don’t muck about, complain to the manufacturer. Simple.

      I saw this meme in FB – “oh, no, I forgot to take my birth control pills and the woman up the road is pregnant now”.
