Is "Snowden" Movie a Form of Hypnosis?
September 24, 2016
Paradoxically, since Edward Snowden exposed NSA mass surveillance
in 2013, it is less of an issue than it was before.
Obama and Congress have taken no action, and it isn't mentioned in the
A reader, Hamish, suggests the new movie "Snowden" is part of an hypnotic process of public acquiescence to servitude.
"Although the Snowden psychodrama does provide insight into our Orwellian society, it ultimately 'hoodwinks' the audience in Masonic fashion by careful crafting the narrative: it ceremonially renders the viewers into acquiesced, morbid spectators."
Although I enjoyed Oliver Stone's new movie Snowden, I felt the narrative was still only wading in shallow waters.
Stone did deliver symbolic props to signal to the Adept but these cinematic sigils are largely undetected by the mass audience. There was a scene where all the mass surveillance was graphically pictured as a sprawling network of digital data and as the camera panned out the image integrated into an iris then an eyeball and at that point the 'all-seeing eye' was staring at the theatre crowd.
It reminded me of Stone's movie JFK where the protagonist queries his source for the identity of such a powerful force that could commit a ritualized assassination of the president in broad daylight and get away with it--at that point the camera pans out to show the Obelisk in the District of Columbia. Theses cryptic messages are the keys to analyzing our occult reality.
So, I abridged a crucial essay that appeared in the book Secret and Suppressed II : 'An Idiot's Guide to the Cryptocracy' by Craig Heimbichner, Feral House (2009).
"If you are outside enough of the mainstream current, you may know something of the Cryptocracy. ...Cryptocracy refers to a secret rulership, a hidden, elite network of power brokers or puppet masters who covertly pull the strings behind the show which passes for government or similarly observable societal structures....When conspiracy theory serves the purposes of the Cryptocracy, it is proclaimed as fact from the rooftops in a relentless media blitz of Big Lie repetition. Retailing conspiracy theory serves the Establishment by demonizing others...
The Cryptocracy has in fact entered the phase in which it is revealing its own plans to its enslaved servitors. ...In Blood on the Altar: The Secret History of the World's Most Dangerous Secret Society, James Shelby Downard explained: 'The Cryptocracy is not a myth; it seeks to transform humanity through alchemical processing of the mass consciousness or group mind which involves various tests and corresponding responses through channels linked to secret societies. The result is both psychological and cultural control; but more importantly, transformation. The Cryptocracy has essentially kept the mind of the masses cooking in a cauldron like a Renaissance alchemist, and occasionally tastes, adds ingredients, and stirs...
The alchemical closure phase of the Cryptocracy involves the Revelation of the Method, explicated by Michael A. Hoffman II in Secret Societies and Psychological Warfare...A veteran hypnotist knows that such successive tests involve the risk of awakening the patient, but if passed successfully, yield two critical results: First, the tests reveal the depth of the trance; second, they sink the receiver down to a deeper level.
Revelation of the Method functions exactly in this manner, and the fact that the 'leaks' and cues regarding 9/11 have not yet widely enraged and mobilized the populace into revolution indicates the trance level to be somewhere around 'deep somnambulism'...
The Cryptocracy thus grounds itself in the 'red thread' of the Kabbalah while offering the masses two false, partial choices of opinion, the Left and Right, based on Rabbi Luria's formulation of Kabbalah with its twin Pillars of Mercy (Left) and Severity (Right). The entire basis of political ping-pong and the games of opinion molders stand revealed as one grasps the importance of this charade of false dilemmas, a game which was updated into modern philosophical language by Hegel (his kabbalistic 'thesis-antithesis' is still the model framework for education). The Hegelian-Lurianic paradigm is the tube of the Cryptocracy's transmission plugged into the back of the zombie's head: disconnecting it immediately brings him to a state of cognitive dissonance, which if pursued leads ultimately out of the illusory matrix.
Another staple of psychological warfare in the arsenal of the Cryptocracy is the managing of group opinion via disinformation. In this age of information overkill, such a tactic is not only effective in maintaining a requisite level of confusion, but it also disturbs and numbs the Group Mind, keeping percipients unsure and unwilling to confront clues to their own subjection.
The Cryptocracy thus wages psychological warfare and revels in the superstitions of symbol, number and ritual as weapons against the mind, grounded in Masonic lore and the dark 'Nightside of Eden' concepts of the Kabbalah. The unfolding of events on the trestle board of modern history can be analyzed as played-out Lodge dramas, rituals of initiation--ceremonial psychodrama (Downard) with a correlated component of psychological warfare (Hoffman).
Terminating Hypnosis: such dynamics of Masonic sorcery illustrate the tactics and nature of the Cryptocracy, a quilt whose sections can be seen (i.e. the OTO, the Lodge, Skull & Bones, intelligence agencies, financial institutions) but whose dimensions are elusive, since they are partly hidden and partly revealed. In analyzing the Cryptocracy, the important point is not a grasp of the totality (i.e. 'getting the complete list of names'), but rather dehypnotization. To emerge from the trance is immediately to see the fabric and seams--and that is sufficient for standing against the stream even as one continues to study the meaning of events."
I posit that Stone's Snowden movie is an exercise in Revelation of the Method. Similar to other exposures, disclosures, and admissions--i.e. Wikileaks, 9/11 truth, hacking scandals, Too Big To Fail banks etc--the symbolic 'tearing away of the veil' has not solidified any operable opposition to the Cryptocracy's grip on the planet and its inhabitants. The masses are enthralled.
So although the Snowden psychodrama does provide insight into our Orwellian society it ultimately 'hoodwinks' the audience in Masonic fashion by careful crafting the narrative: it ceremonially renders the viewers into acquiesced, morbid spectators.
Makow Comment- Given the lack of political dissent or revolt to date, it is hard to understand why all this surveillance is needed unless it is a boondoggle, or they foresee more repressive conditions in the future that will provoke revolt.
First Comment from Howard:
I always found it odd that the NSA could not find Snowden in Hong Kong for the (alleged) two weeks he spent here, given the fact that they are intercepting every email and cellphone call on the planet in real time.
I remain undecided as to whether Snowden's release of material was a limited hangout operation or a genuine disclosure. But you are right in emphasizing that far from making an issue of this all-pervasive government surveillance, the U.S. government and its sheeple have simply moved on as if nothing happened.
Recently I saw a documentary compiled of raw video footage taken during Snowden's two weeks in Hong Kong. The film is called "Citizenfour". I would highly recommend it, not because it's a good film (it is not), but because there is an aura of unreality and pretence that pervades nearly every scene. After watching it, I thought, 'This could never have happened if the U.S. didn't want it to happen.' Snowden gives no hint of being under pressure or worried. And the gaggle of journalists and assistants (and movie production people) would've stood out like a giant red flag to any American scrutiny of this tiny scrap of a city.
In the end, while I lean towards thinking Snowden's disclosures were part of an elaborate theatrical performance, the more important issue to me is that not a d*** thing has been done to stop the totalitarian growth of the American surveillance state, and that most Americans couldn't care less.
If a movie was made by Oliver Stone, it is trash in terms of historical accuracy. Just look at JFK. It did nothing but confuse and misinform the american public. And on top of this, Snowden did absolutely nothing. all he did was expose information you have had in the late 1990's. Look up William "Bill" Cooper's expose's he did on the National security Agency. These aired in January of 96'
Oliver Stone is more than aware of the brain dead state of the average citizen today and does his very best to pry the sleeping eyes of our now defunct Republic open, if just for a few brief seconds.
Most who see "Snowden" will be in shock when they leave the theater at the level of spying that is perpetrated upon them on a daily basis, even if the technology exposed by Stone has been around for many years. The problem is that by the next day it will all be forgotten. These same people will be out buying the latest spy device, whether it be a new iPhone, iPad, desk top, lap top, or smart TV. They will be installing smart meters and signing up for that new "smart home". Deep down they will know they should fight the heavy hand of the police state and never ending intrusion into their private life. Those feelings too shall pass, for most have the attention span of a gnat. It is sad to say you can hand most Americans a shit sandwich and all you will hear in reply is "pass the ketchup". If you think that last statement is a little far fetched, just look at the two major political party candidates for the office of the presidency we as a country have not only accepted, but in most cases pledged our support to.
