Propaganda is the art of overwhelming logic

One type of mind control involves defeating logic as a method of thinking.

Modern formulations of basic logic begin with the statement: You can’t have A and not-A. Which is a way of saying contradictions are unacceptable.

So it’s no surprise that mind control attempts to introduce contradictions into rational processes.

You see this in propaganda.

For example: People who are vaccinated are in danger from those who are unvaccinated. (“Keep your unvaccinated child away from my vaccinated child.”)

There is a concealed contradiction here. You can see it by merely defining (according to conventional terms) the meaning of “vaccinated.”

It means “immune,” “protected from contracting the disease targeted by the vaccine.”

But if the vaccinated person is protected and immune, then coming into contact with an unvaccinated person will bring no danger.

Therefore, the notion that vaccinated people are A) protected but not-A) in danger is absurd, a contradiction.


The easiest way to defeat logic is through deficient education. Never teach logic. Ignore it. Instead, teach specific values. Teach anything except logic. Don’t teach children how to spot contradictions.

A deficient education plus tons of ceaseless propaganda equals mind control.

Logic is a significant problem for people who want a closed and unfree society. Teaching logic tends to produce sharp and independent minds.

Logic produces personal power.

Here is another example of non-logic: A ballot initiative passed by the voters of Maui County is illegal, because it set up a new law regarding commercial agriculture, when in fact commercial agriculture is regulated by state and federal laws, which trump county laws.

There are several ways of attacking this proposition, but the most basic way is:

The ballot initiative was not aimed at commercial agriculture. It called for a moratorium on all Monsanto/Dow experiments using non-commercial GMOs.

In what has become a federal court case, the judge and the lawyers for Dow/Monsanto are proceeding from a false basic premise.

Of course, the failure in this case is a willful ignoring of the facts. The argument is: A is B. No it isn’t. A is A.


There are a number of arguments afloat these days which proceed this way:

“The science concerning ABC is settled.”

“’Settled’ means ‘true.’”

“Therefore the science concerning ABC is true.”

However, on closer inspection, “settled” means “there is a consensus among officially favored scientists.”

Science doesn’t operate according to what officially favored scientists claim. It doesn’t operate according to consensus at all. It operates according to what is true and valid—and the best way to ascertain that is through the broadest possible analysis accomplished by a wide variety of independent researchers, who attempt to replicate prior experimental results.

Even then, there is always room for reasoned dissent.


There is much, much more I could write about logic. The issues I raise in this article are basic and should be addressed in every high school, in great detail, with many illustrations.

For instance: what are the full tacit implications of the statement found at the end of every television drug ad—“ask your doctor if X is right for you.”

For instance (at a more sophisticated level): when the press reports a new outbreak of disease, claiming it is caused by a particular virus…how was that assertion determined? On what grounds do scientists say they have found the virus that causes the disease?

I ran headlong into that one while writing my first book, AIDS Inc.: Scandal of the Century, and the further I investigated HIV as “the cause of AIDS,” the more I was stunned by the lack of logic present in the argument.

Logic is a sword.

Learning its many uses, while still young, creates formidable students and citizens.

Propaganda is the art of overwhelming logic.

It works, when the mind is unprepared.

    I just wanna say that making a “federal case” out of a Maui County ballot initiative insures a win for Monsanto because of the federal judges (and the magistrates) in place in the 9th circuit. Monsanto knows that. Logic doesn’t matter in the Federal Courts, money does. Been there.

  2. NaturalWoman says:

    Brilliant summary, Jon. I will share this with people who might still be able to think. However, those who truly need to think seem incapable of logic at all as thinking is too hard for them. Instead, they go with “feelings.” These people believe everyone should be rescued (especially them), that life isn’t fair, and that we must do what is necessary to make it fair. Fear is the underlying driver. They get vaccinations to be safe, but they are easily played to agree to use force on everyone to get vaxxed. These are the target voters for the Dems, who actually despise them but pretend otherwise. Hillary made private statements about such in her run for president, that were secretly recorded by staff. She laughed at their gullibility. What a state of affairs we live with, eh?

  3. Great article, Jon.

    As I regularly proclaim in my writings, consensus view will eventually destroy mankind “on course”.

    Yes I see what you mean Jon…I agree.

    I personally have been dealing with propaganda. In my thoughts and in my own writing, for quite some time. There is the propaganda we tell the world about ourselves. Maybe it starts there..

    “To thine own self be true.” – John de Vere, 16th Earl of Oxford.

    Propaganda is anti-logic. And what I notice is, how really complex this art of…how should I call it?  For it is more that one can realize, in few hours study. This art of using dissonance, and creating an enemy within…even within the reader’s mind.

    “The reason people awaken, is because they have finally stopped agreeing to things that insult their soul.”

    Propaganda is: Cognitive biases; cult of personality; doublespeak; demonization; factoid; and finally the spin.

    I for one was drawn into the Russians have rigged the elections and so there fore….the deplorables, outraged and rightly so — as it dismissed them —  a huge part of the population that voted to end the swamp, build a wall, and put the fucking woman in a jail cell.

    I knew it was a rigged and a propagandizing event — not the election, the whole Russian story, about a fix — it is just that I could not figure out how it was put together. It has taken me a long time to undo the treads tangled in mess. And the deeper I go the worse it gets.. There is a conspiracy at work here. A very deep and very complex one, using the new reality machine in a sophisticated cyber-war.

    We are living in times that logic might not be enough — these think tanks that are popping up, everywhere — NGO’s, hidden Russian money, hidden funders and associations — that are aware that arising from the ashes of the victim ideology. The discontent, and self-actualizing of an awakening population.

    The, America is bad, and lets pull down all the statues, and eliminate the name Lee forever; and BLM is good; and SJW (social justice warrior) turned NPC (non playable character) are ripe and juicy for the taking. The caravan; omg its White Nationalism = Nazis (again). The awakening mind.

    “Awakening is an inside job.”

    The socialist thrust, by non other than the only place of such a total, cancerous philosophy. The one model that we all need to look at closely. Russia, formerly the Soviet Union. The most corrupted place ever to exist.

    Pretext: The Russians are screwing with the election (TRASWTE), is a sort of “doublespeak” — WHICH LEADS TO, Trump is in cahoots with the Russians, a Manchurian candidate being manipulated….blah blah.

    And really, the secondary benefit of that part was to ease, off, of HILLARY WAS SCREWING WITH THE RUSSIANS and the fucking election. She was the real criminal here with the uranium deal with Uranium One, and Frank Giustra, and the Clinton Foundation. And you really can’t float the same big lie twice, with two different candidates in the same race. 

    But, I am off the topic..so, the TRASWTE, is the lead in this real propaganda op (Prop-Op). The sowing of seeds of dissention, with the sleepy heads. The purposeful set-up of fake news websites and YouTube channels that exploit this fake news.. The “factoid” in this is, there is a partial truth of sorts but its mixed up inside of another context. In a sense a sort of reversed limited hang-out. Philosophical it is a new color.

    In the meantime, there is another Prop-Op, which has its finger on the pulse of the social interactions of the many social networks; those new YouTube channelers — and some of them have real channelers. With instant celebrities: the abundance of News websites on-line, and a favoured world politician. The new game of analytics. Hell anything is possible.

    He’s cool, he rides horses with no shirt, intimidating the hell out of Chelsea Handler, who likes to go buck naked without her pussy hat on, in protest of everything Trump.

    Did ya know he is sixty-six — Putin that is.. why such vitality. He is a Russian Orthodox Christian — seems to stand up for the little guy. He is very popular fella; he has a good soul, and so a “cult of personality” is manufactured and pumped up as a side issue. But no one is paying attention to it, because TRASWTE is still being fueled and funded, it is still a working operation. And by now everyone is into that one up to their necks. It’s like a old song, that nobody whants to listen too anymore…”She left him, he left her..” Some have figured it out, partially, but refuse to speak publicly in case they be called a fool. And some of them were barking about the election being rigged, so their word is questioned. Wow its so good.

    And looks like they will run this TRASWTE, till the wheels fall of… the sleight of hand and “look here”, “don’t look there”. But when you do look there, and clear your mind, and stop taking everything ‘as’ good because, the “cult of personality” is an honor driven thing. Search the sources, and you find they all come from the same or similar places. Troll factories, funded and fueled by the Kremlin and the BRICS. A new economy, bound to de-dollarize — that “doublespeak” for collapse the U.S. economy. Cause inflation, polarize trade. Create civil war, and do the same thing that is done in the EU. Meanwhile Putin kills refugees on sight. There is an industry being created out of bringing down an Empire. and using that momentum to raise another…

    Now the second part of my equation is well under way with, the “demonization” of America and the Trump administration — the great pussy grabber, voiced non stop, by none other than the pussy hats, and really creepy and weird Hollywood.

    The “Spin” is Globalism, wrapped up in a warm and fuzzy caravan from the south, and that one, is financed by non other than George “Globalism” Soros. A mid-term election and the blue puddle. Russia is good and America bad. Putin is good, orange man bad.

    When the Russians stormed Berlin at the end of the second world war. The death and destruction escalated to the unimaginable. The rape and plunder, is beyond any redemption. Russia is holding a grudge — it always has been that way, it is seen in the likes of Lavrov, who is constantly teaching the U. S. his lesson. If America falls. Russia first followed by China will plunder to no end. America will be left as a third world host of that parasitism. Russia has revenge on its mind, and it sees it moment coming — it did it to the Germans in 1945; the war crimes are still unattended to this day, called western myth. Russia will do it again for the Yeltsin/Clinton years. And the pillaging of the old Soviet Union assets.

    The propaganda game must be undone. Putin ‘is’ a gangster, a dictator, who has been in office since the invention of the Russian Federation. He has not been in power for four years of those years. And those four years, were spent as the prime Minister of the Russian Federation under Dmitry Medvedev. The first nine years of the Federation, Putin spent as Boris Yeltsin (a terrible drunk) Prime Minister. And some say he was totally in control. Putin is turning out to be dictator for life, a Czar.

    Putin is an oligarch, amongst the St Petersburg mob, he is head of the secret society called the KGB, and it did not give up its power. No that power is still there, quiet, and is Russian intelligence (FSB) — and FSB  runs the Russian mob. It was simply set loose. Russia is run by oligarchs. Billionaires, with a different idea, but not a better idea. Globalism with a different face. A Russian face.

      It’s blame-the-other-person-for-what-you-are-doing, and it works. Did you know that the person who secretly filmed that “pussy” video and then released it was a Bush relative?

      • Michael Burns says:

        Yes I know, and how long before the actual election. Every man has said stupid things, we are all guilty of saying something sexist. Its when it becomes a habit, lockroom talk has been going on since well before the Romans invented public baths.

    …..and sadly it still works on so many.
