  /*Deceptions*/

Chris Pratt, filmmaker:  [he'll be onsite available for Q&A after the film]

?Our opinions and perceptions are being managed by a corporate media; 
there is no public policy, only corporate policy. How can we reconcile 
continual war, wiretapping, unanswered 9/11 questions, torture, 
rendition, terrorism, the loss of freedom, police brutality, news 
suppression, the bailouts, evaporation of the public option, a toothless 
financial reform, no real audit of the Fed, BP's constant  lies, 
political bribery, uncharged war criminals and corruption beyond belief?

Media manipulation is orchestrated by an elite  never held accountable. 
The extent that big money has taken control of the media, of who & how 
we elect officials, of governmental policies both at home and abroad is 
a reflection of a public that continually chooses to do nothing.?

?/If we understand the mechanism and motives of the group mind, is it 
not possible to control and regiment the masses according to our will 
without their knowing it?/? ~Edward Louis Bernays ? father of Public 
Relations, author of Propaganda, nephew of Sigmund Freud

?/What we wanted was to do was have a terror campaign./? ~Howard Hunt, 
head of CIA Operation, Guatemala, 1954

Why should YOU care? It's YOUR money that pays for US/Israeli wars - on 
Iraq, Afghanistan, Iran, Palestine, So America, etc etc - for 
billionaire bailouts, for ever more ubiquitous US prisons, for the loss 
of liberty and civil rights...
