I Finally Understand "The Truman Show"

July 19, 2022


(left, In The Truman Show, the hero discovered that he lived in a false reality constructed for him)

Like Truman Burbank in The Truman Show, we live in a reality show consisting of actors and facades like a Western movie set. These facades -- democracy, wars, plandemics -- are designed to hide the sad truth that humanity is satanically possessed, covertly controlled by a satanic cult -- the Illuminati ( i.e. Cabalist Judaism/ Freemasonry) -- which aims to destroy, dispossess and enslave. Everything is scripted. We are mushrooms, kept in the dark and fed shit.

John Coleman- " The conspiracy reaches right down to the local level.  Tavistock has an "invisible army" of actors found "today in the halls of justice, police, churches, school boards, sports bodies, newspapers, councils, state legislatures, and are legion in Washington. They run for every office..."

 God is synonymous with PERFECTION - ultimate Truth, Beauty, Goodness, Justice and Love. The Illuminati are Cabalists (Satanists) who redefine reality to serve their occult dogmas, material interests and obscene perversions.  

In his book on The Tavistock Institute, John Coleman explains why we can't trust anything emanating from the mass media or government. 

"The moral, spiritual, racial, economic, cultural and intellectual bankruptcy we are in the midst of today is not some social phenomenon...that just happened. Rather it is the product of a carefully planned Tavistock program," Coleman writes.

(How the Elite Plays God from Aug 2016) 

By Henry Makow, Ph.D. 

Like a cat toying with a mouse, the elite teases us with glimpses of our true predicament. One such peek was the 1998 movie The Truman Show directed by Peter Weir.

Truman Burbank, played by Jim Carrey,  is unaware his life is a reality TV show. Everyone, including his wife, is an actor, and everything that happens is staged. In other words, his life is a fraud.

Truman Burbank's predicament describes our own. According to John Coleman, the elite has been writing the script for almost hundred years at the Tavistock Institute of Human Relations based in London. 

Coleman, now 83, a former British Intelligence officer (MI-6), first exposed the clique that dominates the world is his classic Conspirator's Hierarchy: The Story of the Committee of 300 (1992)

As its title suggests, his latest book is a rambling cry of despair: The Tavistock Institute of Human Relations: Shaping the Moral, Spiritual, Cultural, Political and Economic Decline of the United States of America. (Pdf)

The book is confirmation that a financial elite engineered every war and depression in modern history and continues to condition our beliefs and behavior.

According to Coleman, Tavistock began life before WWI to convince peace-loving populations of the need to massacre each other.

"Those fresh-faced young American boys from Arkansas and North Carolina were sent marching off to Europe believing they were "fighting for their country" never knowing that the "democracy" [Woodrow] Wilson sent them to "make the world safe for" was a Socialist-International One World Government dictatorship." (42)

Funded by the royal family, the Rockefellers and the Rothschilds, Tavistock pioneered the techniques of propaganda used to justify war. Outright lies about German atrocities in WWI resonate down through the decades to lies about Saddam Hussein's gassing Kurds and killing babies in Kuwait. Of course, the biggest lie of all is that Muslims had anything to do with Sept. 11.

Coleman found that 94% of the keywords and phases developed by Tavistock for WWII use "matched up with those used in the Korean War, the Vietnam War and the Gulf War." (153)


Coleman's main point is we can't trust anything the mass media or government tells us, especially not the "News." He cites Stalin's propaganda chief Willy Munzenberg: "All news is lies and all propaganda is disguised as news."

Coleman says society is rotten with institutions and organizations directed by Tavistock to deceive and distort. They are called "elite" institutions because of whom they serve.

The conspiracy reaches right down to the local level. According to Coleman, Tavistock has an "invisible army" of actors found "today in the halls of justice, police, churches, school boards, sports bodies, newspapers, councils, state legislatures, and are legion in Washington. They run for every office..."

Virtually every important corporation, university, think tank or foundation is linked to Tavistock. (See Conspirators' Hierarchy pp. 221-253 for a list.) It chooses the entertainers we watch, the pundits we listen to; the politicians we elect. Every US President since Theodore Roosevelt has been under its control. They made examples of rebels like JFK and Richard Nixon.

Tavistock is behind every "spontaneous" social movement of the last century, including feminism, sexual "liberation", the peace movement, the "New Age" movement, environmentalism, homosexuality, and abortion. Lately, they are behind sex education and the transgender movement.

"The moral, spiritual, racial, economic, cultural and intellectual bankruptcy we are in the midst of today is not some social phenomenon...that just happened. Rather it is the product of a carefully planned Tavistock program," Coleman writes.

We are constantly studied to see how we will react under stress. Orson Welles' Martian invasion in 1938 was designed to demonstrate the power of the "news" to deceive. Coleman doesn't mention it but the power blackout in the Northeast in 2003 was probably another study of mass behaviour. So was Katrina /New Orleans. Confident of our sedated sheep-like behavior, Coleman says Tavistock went ahead and massacred David Koresh and his followers at Waco after lying about his activities. (240).

Tavistock follows Sun Tsu's maxim of "Kill a few; terrorize many." Coleman calls Winston Churchill's decision to bomb German civilians "a war crime." Dresden was "an outright attack on Christianity, timed to take place during Lent," he says. (188)

According to Coleman, Tavistock is waging war on the Muslim world because Islam represents an obstacle to its control. (151) He claims Russia and China still have a measure of independence.



We are in this jam because a small group of dynastic families has amassed unlimited wealth by usurping the government's money-creation role.

To maintain this unjust advantage, they need to create a "world government" dictatorship. As in any colonial situation, our national elites are chosen by their willingness to collaborate with the occupying power. Most people will do whatever it takes to be "successful". Many think they are free citizens creating a better world. 

francescocossiga-quote.jpgPeople find the Illuminati to be an abstract and elusive enemy. Look no further than your television, your iPod, your radio, movie or newspaper.

Coleman says 450 of the Fortune 500 companies get their marching orders from Tavistock. This may explain why TV commercials seem more concerned with behavior modification than with selling a product. Lately, many commercials present 
mixed-race marriages and families.  I don't oppose intermarriage except when it is someone else's agenda. 

Like Truman Burbank, more and more people are recognizing the plot. They are testing the elite's storyline and finding it mendacious and perverse. They are walking off the stage to find an authentic life.

First Comment from Glen:

 The process of "waking up" can be a long and unpleasant journey. It can start with your own investigation into 9/11 as mine did. You find you go through many stages, the first usually being denial. As you progress through the stages of and finally arrive at the point where you have cut through all the bullshit and realize we truly do live in a matrix and everything we are taught, told, or sold is nothing more than a G*d damn lie, you yourself will become a different person. You will enter the period in life where many of us have never been, that is the period where you feel you are truly alone, even when in the company of the ones you love. You will become the butt of your co-workers jokes as they sneer and call you a wack-a-do conspiracy theorist.

 Soon enough you decide just to keep your mouth shut. It's just easier that way. As you read articles as this one you know for a fact it makes perfect sense and can be the only real explanation, for even in our imperfect world someone would manage to get something right once in a while. I now just spend my time in total amazement at how successful our true rulers have been in degrading the mind, soul, and body of what we call modern civilized man. It is unbelievable how they have succeeded. At the present time, I see no chance for "Homo normalis" to awaken from his slumber.

re " At the present time, I see no chance for "Homo normalis" to awaken from his slumber."

Every time I do activism, I have to keep reminding myself to phrase everything I say in the form of a question. It's the only way. You cannot change anyone's mind, you can only get them to think. I have to consciously resist the idea of stating facts because I'm nobody, they assume I'm taking facts out of context and they do not feel like being told anything sometimes. The only way is the Socratic method. They cannot escape questions, questions aren't rude.

Do you know what 50 companies are not working with tavistock? We should publish a list of clean companies that ordinary people can make ethical investments into.

My guess is oil for sure considering the war the elite are raging against it, also mining companies and maybe ford. Do you have any ideas what the most anti Illuminati companies are, and how to invest for Illuminati stopping purposes?

Maybe an Illuminati free certification system would be a powerful tool against them, you could be the Warren Buffett of anti illuminism.


JJ said (May 20, 2018):

What the author, John Coleman, doesn't mention about "The Truman Show" is how gnostic and anti-Christ it is. A lot has been said about the symbolism used in the movie, like the light falling from the "sky" representing Lucifer, which is one of the hints that he's on a movie set, to the fact that his director, who holds him captive is named "Christof," and he is the deceiver of the "True Man."

True Man is only free when he breaks away from being of Christ. Jim Carrey is supposedly a high Satanic priest in Hollywood.

Just my 2 cents.

AZ said (May 19, 2018):

Since my youth, I already had the feeling that there was something very wrong with this world society. I let myself be upset too much by all the bad news in the MSM.

During my traveling through India at the beginning of the eighties I’ve got my first initiation in the truth by fellow travelers, who told me about the dark side of (geo)politics and drugs trafficking by the CIA from Afghanistan. Since then I don’t read newspapers anymore, don’t watch the news on TV and even don’t have a television set. Since then I also have been very critical of every technological innovative gadget that has been mass hyped. So I have no smartphone. I started to use a computer because it gave me the possibility to do my own research and evermore learned to see that the feeling in my youth was correct. I also came to the conclusion that the real truth lies within our own hearts and not in our minds, which is constantly fucked with.

Many times my above-mentioned choices did put me in a seemingly lonely and isolated position, even within alternative circles. But I know that’s the price I have to pay for being and staying an authentic human being.

Peter S said (May 19, 2018):

Distractions, Herd instinct, lies, incredulity, anger! These, are the major stumbling blocks that I have so far identified as making it impossible for people to wake up. We are always distracted by our private problems, such that we can hardly find time to even question our immediate realities.

We grow up, as members of a “group” which have developed a certain “mindset” of engaging reality and any deviation from this “mindset” (herd-instinct) is treated as an attack on the “bond” that holds the “collective” together. This has resulted in a knee-jerk reaction to any idea that may rattle our “bubble” world. So, the truth may well be rejected if it is a threat to our “comfort-zones”

The media, the teachers, the writers of history, the institution of learning, and even now scientists are lying! They feed us with lies, which are repeated so many times and for so long, that truth is regarded as madness! (For example, scientists cannot even today agree on the Wave Structure Of Matter. Yet, Bells Theorem, EPR experiment, Double Slit Experiment, Alain Aspect Experiment, all point to the Spiritual nature of Matter and Our reality, but most scientists still hold a materialistic view of reality)

We are faced by such a mind-boggling conspiracy, that the only safe way to deal with it, is incredulity. We are unable to fathom how human beings, rational they are, are capable of such a monstrosity of evil. Our naivety, incredulity, and the simple nature of many of us play against us, is used against us, and we are made to be our own worst enemies.

Lastly, and not least, it's not easy for the majority of us to accommodate the anger that is provoked when the Truth is known. No wonder, it is very easy to dismiss “conspiracy theorists” as nut-cases. It was the same fate that befell the prophets before doom vindicated them. A sad world indeed.

"The conspiracy reaches right down to the local level" - this is a reference to MASONRY. The conspiracy would not be possible if it weren't for the masonic lodges in every town and city with their secrets, rituals to lucifer (which they even admit to), infiltration (conflict of interest), and old boy club system. Notice that the conspiracy has now destroyed every religion (Christianity, islam, true judaism/torah, etc) except for the one secret religion that is truly the "elite institution": FREEMASONRY.

Robert M said (August 27, 2016):

"...not some social phenomenon...that just happened. Rather it is the product of a carefully planned Tavistock program."

I used the history of Tavistock and the Committee of 300, which I learned about from John Coleman, in trying to illustrate to my baby boomer friends and relatives just what had been perpetrated on us during our lifetimes, how so rapid and thorough a cultural revolution could not have happened naturally and spontaneously, but could only have been imposed from above. And I watched their estimation of my intellect, and of my soundness of mind in general, plummet.

I am convinced that most moderns don't WANT to know these absolutely gut-churning, let alone stressful and depressing, truths, resulting in a prolonged (lifelong?) Denial Phase verging on intellectual and moral cowardice and/or almost-criminal apathy.

Tony B said (August 26, 2016):

The devil is loose in today's world. Has been about 100 years, a bit more. He has been given permission to capture as many souls as he can in the time given. He wins every worldly battle but he lost the war the day Christ died on the cross.

Never in history has it been more necessary for proper priorities to be, spiritual first, worldly a distant second. The real war definitely is, as St. Paul, the ex Pharisee, so plainly saw, a spiritual one. We each will win or lose in it on our own account.

Robert said (June 1, 2006):

Henry, I've been in the fight against collectivism since 61. I've been a member of JBS, Had an organization, Americans For Ending Aid to Communist Countries for 6 years, and currently serve as Fl Coordinator of Exodus, and Director of Freedom Cntr.

My concern re:your article is that it tends to neutralize a lot of people due to the fact that by reading the article they view the conspiracy as being so large, formidable, that it's worthless trying to do anything. There is nothing you can do, as everything you read & hear is untrue.. Gary DeMar wrote a book, Myths, Lies, & Half Truths - How Misreading the Bible Neutralizes Christians.

Christene said (April 10, 2006):

Don't fear. Tavistock may create elaborate plans, but let's face it, only God is God. Submit to God and not to Tavistock's fear campaign. Ignore the media. This life is only temporary, just a crazy test, and it will all be over quickly. God knows the truth. Tavistock and their armies will be crushed and burned, their time is very limited. They are the ones who should be afraid, very afraid.

Dean said (April 10, 2006):

like reading your blogs. There may be more to the Truman show than most
people realize. The matrix in which we live allows most to base their
thinking, their very lives on many false premises. Basing their lives on
error they then develop a vested interest in error. Easy to swallow, hard
the divest.
In this way those of the Travistock and the banking elite, parasites all,
can control people through their thinking or believe systems.
For example, the book "The Bible Unearthed" by an Israeli and American shows that Moses was not an historical character and the so-called Israelites were never in any captivity. Of course all the other early old
Testament characters are equally fictitious as are the new testament characters including Jesus.
The matrix is indeed complex.


I wouldn't be so quick to throw Moses and Jesus on the historical scrap heap. The proof is that their teachings are still valid today.


Ed said (April 9, 2006):

Congratulations for a succinct, to the “heart of the matter” dissertation. As I see it, the genuinely “sad fact” is that the vast majority of western humans have become “hypnotically programmed” sheeple, thus they will not resist for they view immediately “perceived reality” from their sheeple-like psychological stance. Tavistock and their StarTrek “Borg-like” approach to human affairs seems an apt metaphor here … “Resistance is futile!” Absent “divine” intervention, which is not overtly discernable in recorded history, how can resistance be mounted in and from the West? I am certain that the Chinese, simply by being Chinese in thought and analytic techniques, long ago deduced Tavistock’s “plan”, and they will only “play” as long as they can benefit. What this will ultimately produce is yet to unfold. Interesting times, to be sure

Larry said (April 9, 2006):

Your article reminds me of a photo I saw that was taken in a local bank in Baytown, Texas in 1950. There were perhaps 100 people in the lobby. All were well dressed, of normal weight and American citizens.

Since then, Baytown no longer has a downtown. It died. They're only strip malls, big chains and fast food restaurants along a drag on the north side of town. The bank was moved and bought out by a conglomerate and if another picture was taken in the lobby today I'm afraid all we'd see would be a bunch of fat slobs mixed with illegal aliens.

It's horrifying to know that NONE of this was just happenstance.

Ben said (April 9, 2006):

I find it frustrating and disheartening, to say the least, that the bulk of people just won't wake up. I know about the NWO conspiracy, the Illuminati, the deliberate degradation of morals in western society, the abolition of
the role of the male, and the coming Police-State. Most people cringe, scoff
or roll their eyes when confronted with the world's harsh reality, believing
it to be nothing more than a collection of paranoid conspiracy theories.

After all, most of them are under the false impression (one that has been pushed onto them since birth) that they are doing the right thing, and that world-leaders care about them, etc. For doing the right thing by the world,
and trying to educate people with the facts and harsh truth, I have been called 'delusional', 'paranoid', 'crazy', 'anti-social', and my personal favourite 'terrorist sympathiser' (makes me chuckle). This is how the flock of mind-altered sheep repay original-thinkers that attempt to lead them to
greener pastures. However, none of this is a deterrent: I believe in doing the right thing; not conforming to someone elses standards, which are just downright wrong. In a few years all those sheep will look back and say "heck, if only we'd listened and done the right thing in the first place".

Sentot said (April 8, 2006):

Although I do believe that conspiracy exists, I also believe none of it would happen if God almighty has not ordained it. Tavistock Institute is not god. We can fight them, because they're humans too. If people forgets that, they will succumb to hopelessness in the face of this grand devilish plot. Please remind your reader often that they shouldn't give up.

Dan said (April 8, 2006):

I'm pleased to see your article tonight focuses on media's primary role being social engineering. Yes, selling products is secondary to that.
Now that I'm connected to marketing 'experts' here in Houston again, I can tell you that advertizing specialists pay primary attention to
selling the product within the 'correct' social 'package', first.
Naturally it's simpler for them to encourage 'trends' so as to have a
compliant and predictable public. I watch these guys work and go to the brain storming meetings, and what I deduce is that the entire advertizing and marketing profession has been subverted into being mouth pieces for the think tanks like Tavistock who actually devise how they
want people to think and behave this year and next.

You got very close in this article to telling readers the obvious personal solution to step out of the herd. Turn off the television!
Commercials, shows, 'reality tv', CNN, whatever it is, they are all selling us a simulacra of reality that as Frank Zappa once said, "maybe
you shouldn't ought to buy".
