Thanks for your response to my post.
I agree..you have the same problems with the Internet that you have with the media before the Internet was around.
Before the Internet you had mostly the media controlling and directing what the public was allowed to see..and know. In newspapers, on the radio, on televisions this was the case.
I began to learn this when I got my first shortwave set..how big was the paper curtain over a supposedly free people. I began to learn of things which would send me to the public library to check them out and on my own connect dots. And I found out many of the lines were there ..capable of being connected by dots.
The other thing that helped was when a friend of mine quit where I work and went to a big city newspaper to work the graveyard shift while finishing his schooling.
One of the things he would do in the middle of the night was take a look at the teletypes to see what was coming in from the various news agencies. Also talk to some of the free lance reporters coming in to sell their stories.
He was to go on to tell me how little news actually got into a newspaper because of the political slant of the top newspaper peoples.
Like the television and radio...they too would filter the news.
So too it is with public education and particularly with topics like I posted on the other thread about Just weights and measures and this relationship to Godly principles and practices ..compared to ungodly principles and practices.
No one sees what we do.
So too ..is my understanding of the workings of the RCC. However to be fair...they are not the only group like this. They too have competition in the "No one sees what we do category." There are others.
It is just that if you are willing to read the history ..the RCC has a much longer pedigree at this "No One Sees What We Do" template than do most governments.
The problem I see...is that if you think this through carefully...you can claim alot of things about the RCC..but ignorance is not one of them. For the Schools backed by the RCC have high education/academic standards. Notre Dame, Loyala University, Georgetown et al. I believe their education standards are significantly higher than many many public/government schools...always have been.
The people I have met who spent a significant amount of time going to Catholic Schools seem to have a higher grasp of the English Language than do many of us public school folks. Even of other languages as well.
Hence I am prone to say ..ignorance is not one of their problems in the RCC.
Oh...and I am not familiar with Zoltan2 by the name Tichen so you have me at an advantage there.
My point here is that the problem with the copy and paste going on in controlling views is nothing new. It is just now available to the public where as before home computers..it was in the hands mostly of those who could afford the technology and controls over information.
But if you wanted to take the time to dig for information's through the many and varied sources back then it could be found. With much more effort but it could be found.
And I found much of this information's beginning with the death of that Pope who only lasted about a month. As I recall his name was John Paul the 1st and succeeded Pope Paul VIth.
The book as I recall was titled ..."In God's Name" by David Yallop.http://www.amazon.com/Gods-Name-Investi ... 0552132888
What this book did for me was to lead me down certain paths of history by chasing certain details which were not ordinarily found in most history books or in the media.
What it also did was awaken me to religious wars and conflicts going on between Occult groups..today...without the pubic being aware of them...by design.
The Propaganda 2 connections with world banking..P2 as it is sometimes called.
It was also a shock at the time to learn that there were brothels in Rome with several of the Popes to cater to the clergy exclusively.
Also in the book was the introduction to the history of how many other Popes gave up the ghost in suspicious circumstances.
Nonetheless there was a great deal of historical information's to be found there and elsewhere to which the public is seldom allowed to know...and for what I think are political/control reasons.
And I believe the RCC is not the only group under this umbrella..there are others.
This misuse and ignorance was going on long before the Internet as far as I am concerned and believe. The Internet only levels the playing field and puts the ability to the ordinary person to let views and thinking expand.
I also believe this free expansion of information's and views is a threat to someone out there who still wants this knowledge controlled.
Hence the talk and efforts to more closely monitor and control the Internet by insecure governments over their peoples.
It is up to us to think through what we believe on every topic. But access to information's is key in being able to even get enough to connect the dots. Without access ..you still have the controlled and rigged system of before the home computer.
I do not agree with all that is out here...and there is way to much for me to bother with most of it.
But I do not believe most of history is accidental...that it just happens by the roll of the dice. I believe much of it is planned and made to happen...and for specific reasons.
To keep people on this treadmill..they must be controlled and educated to this control system...disciplined in only one category of thought.
Some manage for certain reasons to escape these controls and think for themselves on many topic lines. They don't always let out that they can do this but they can.
I don't always agree with Zoltan or you ..but I will read and try to see what people are saying.
I just happen to know that much of what Zoltan posts about the RCC and it's history is true. Not just about the Nazis but going back into middle ages and before and the deals and agreements they were making with governments. Nothing has changed except that they have more religious competition today. Even from other governments/religions.
