PSYCHOLOGICAL WARFARE IN THE AGE OF SOCIAL NETWORKS
ShadowGate 2 – Key’s To The Kingdom
As the New Year fast approaches, I wanted to take a moment to outline FreedomStream.TV and The BERGY-BIT’s focus going forward into 2023 – PSYCHOLOGICAL WARFARE; aka PSYOP, in military nomenclature. For thousands of years, humans have been perfecting the manipulation of others minds and emotions, but recent emerging technologies over the last few decades has created a new vulnerability on a global scale to humankind like no other that has come before us as a species.
From the advent of the telegram the game was changed. Gone were the days where geographical constraints limited the ability for mass dissemination of information to a limited audience that would then require additional mediums, like newspapers and leaflets to propagate down to its intended target demographics.
Newspapers and leaflets had their own limitations as well being the communication with your target was essentially one way, with a limited ability to generate feedback from the target that would allow you to tailor your message to more effectively expand your overall influence.
Today, social networks provide both a platform to disseminate your message and generate immediate feedback which you can then use to more effectively target masses of people, usually without their knowledge of the planning and often times deception that was used to create the message your target engages. We can build predictive behavioral profiles today pulling in data from hundreds of sources around the world, using artificial intelligence to know exactly what message you need to send to exactly what group or groups of individuals you are targeting.
For the next two-years leading up to the 2024 Presidential election, The BERGY-BIT will be focused on PSYOP used by our government, corporations, military, lobby firms, politicians and other non-governmental organizations to influence our perceptions of the world around us.
You want to talk about voting machines stealing elections, there are plenty of grifters pushing that false narrative; we will not, because it serves only to distract us from the true threat of psychological warfare and the tactical, coordinated influence operations, which are the one-and-only true threat that faces our species, more so than famine, nuclear weapons or any other form of kinetics.
We need to wake-up quick!
IT'S THE PSYOP, STUPID
Drawing from James Carville’s famous line, “it’s the economy, stupid,” I thought we’d try to use what has worked in the past here by some of the pioneer’s of “dirty tricks” and influence. Why reinvent the wheel, right?
GHOSTS IN THE MACHINE - PART 1
This is part 1 of a 10 part series where I will be providing commentary, criticism and reporting on the use of PSYOP by our government and military.
For 3-years (2007-2010) I provided contract support for the 4th Psychological Operations Group, primarily on contracts in Iraq, and CENTCOM in Tampa, where my military unit, JCSE, just so happened to be headquartered.
While in Iraq, I spent nearly 8-months providing contract support to then Maj. Brad Burris (see attached DoD memo by Burris), who was the in-country IIA chief for the 4th POG’s IIA (Interactive Internet Activities) operations out of Camp Victory, Baghdad.
Although I will NOT violate National Security by discussing anything classified, the decision by the 8th PSYOP to use YouTube as a means of dissemination, whatever their intentions, has compelled me to provide a voice in opposition of this new, bold PSYOP on American’s to justify their use of unethical and immoral “weaponization” of facts, using truth with the same impact on your target as a kinetic response, just without the “boom”.
