Opinion – Dr Shinichi Suzuki fraud claims slammed by music teachers as ‘scandalous’ – Sydney Morning Herald – John Gelmini

Dr Alf I think knows the answer to his own question.

I track up to 125 websites for news and compare it with what I see, things I learn from people who are more knowledgable and what the BBC, CNN, Fox, ITV, RT, Al Jazeera and others put out.

I look at You Tube and compare what these different sources say on the same subjects.

With the BBC, I compare what somebody says today with their version of events a week, month, 3 months and a year from today and earlier.

The resemblance between anything that remotely looks or sounds like the truth is practically nonexistent, unless the BBC is reporting an ongoing hostage siege or live event.

To understand what is being reported, you need to be able to understand hand movements, the use of NLP and different body language to rubbish interviewees in the minds of the audience, the use of shapes and sigils to create a mental state and the BBC’s use of repetition.

It uses the phrases “force of nature” and “climate change” heavily and in a tone of voice that suggests that every event known to mankind from an ingrowing toenail, to gales, traffic congestion, someone committing crimes by the light of the full moon, feral cats and horse-meat in burger,s can all be laid at the door of these two things.

When you understand all that, plus the use of drumming and the process of zooming in to the motionless face of the presenter as the drumming reaches a crescendo, then you understand the process of anchoring the audience to every word that is said.

The colors used on the set and the way people dress is not accidental either, nor is the composition of panels used on Question Time and the composition of the studio audiences.

A good rule of thumb is to assume that 80% of what you are told is misleading nonsense, lies or incomplete data and that 20% more closely resembles the truth.

To get to that 20%, you have to apply critical thinking, commonsense knowledge of history and geography and understand where people are coming from.

Which in turn means you cannot simply take them at face value.

With reporters, unless they are mavericks like the left-wing Australian Jon Pilger or are honest seekers of truth from the Daily Telegraph hunting for corrupt and shyster-like MP’s, you have to assume they are peddling a Government line or something they have been told.

In one broadcast the BBC had a reporter standing in front of date and banana trees who said in a clear voice “I am standing here reporting to you live from Baghdad”, “Saddam Hussein has been captured”. Date and banana trees produce fruit in and around July and the summer months, yet Saddam Hussein was captured we are told,in December even though the man they caught did not totally resemble Saddam Hussein in that the dictator had eyes set widely apart and the captured man had eyes closely set in his head. The second shot of the moment of capture of Saddam could not have been taken at the same time as the first shot of the reporter by the date and banana trees which of course cast shadows inconsistent with the purported timeline.

Dr Alf is exactly right.

However, everyone is going to become enraged, not just the old.

The young, and those still at work, will have to pay more taxes and get less from the system ; the old, particularly those without money or resources, will go on expecting the state to provide when it isn’t able to.

More work will be automated, outsourced, given to robots, dealt with by cyborgs and completed with 3D printers. Extra profits will go to enrich the few while the great unwashed will be left to sink or swim.

For those who did not save, did not plan and did not think ahead, whether they are young or old, the future is neither “bright nor Orange”.

Indigenous people in the UK can expect to be a minority within 30 years and much of Western business will be owned by the Chinese, South Koreans and to a lesser extent Indians, who will be very demanding taskmasters indeed.

Before then, there will be a wider Middle East war, which will, once again, draw in the West and force the UK to rebuild its military forces, having just slimmed them down and having just left Afghanistan. That war, assuming that it can be prolonged, will get the wheels of industry turning and deal with the problem of youth unemployment.

The problem of vociferous and angry pensioners consuming more money than the country can afford will continue until the present crop of vacuous and spineless politicians is prepared to confront the more feckless and stupid of their number in a robust manner.

Sadly that time is still some way off but the implosion of the Welsh NHS some borderline English NHS Trusts and some county councils will perhaps serve as a wake up call.
