Polarising political spectrum.jpg
A modern illustration of how the commercially-controlled media depicts the political spectrum. In the 21st century, the enemy image of "extremism" is used to try to promote the corporate media as reliable and "middle of the road".
Interest ofEd van Thijn
A way of framing the debates that effectively hinders consensus and promotes disharmony.

A Polarising perspective is one which has the effect of polarising people, promoting conflict and moving people away from conciliation and common ground. They are to described here, but should not be used.

Party politics: "Left" v. "Right"

Political spectrum.jpg
Full article: Political spectrum

The political spectrum is a key metaphor that is used to prevent consensus so as to promote social control. The colours and names of the left/right parties are not consistent across the world, but the notion of "political opposition" is. Parties are opposed to one another. The political spectrum tends to narrow range of policies and issues towards a one-dimensional "us v. them".

Human "races": "Blacks" and "Whites"

Full article: Racism

Human skin colour is just one of many physiological differences between humans - both between and within populations. In reality, humans skin is neither black nor white, but labelling it so and repeatedly claiming that this difference is import has been used as a divide and conquer method of social control, one that has worked effectively over centuries.

Enemy images

Full article: Enemy image
Enemy images are tools to facilitate expression of hostile emotions. By obscuring the real people behind them, such labels promote conflict and hamper understanding of reality, which is inevitably multi-faceted.

Enemy images are derogatory exonyms, i.e. labels used by "us" to put down "them". Since this polarises discussions an invites mutual antipathy, like other polarising perspectives, editors make strenuous efforts to avoid them.


Full article: “Terrorism”
False flag attacks make up a large but unacknowledged proportion of what the commercially-controlled media terms "terrorism". The 1980 Bologna bombing, blamed on communists but later exposed as a part of NATO's Operation Gladio was just one part of the decades long Strategy of Tension.

"Terrorist" is a label the ideology of which was developed at a conference in Jerusalem in 1979 for global use as a polarising perspective. After establishing this, it was launched by the September 11 attacks.

“Either you are with us or you are with the terrorists. From this day forward, any nation that continues to harbor or support terrorism will be regarded by the United States as a hostile regime.”
George W. Bush (20 September 2001) [citation needed]

These forces are pitted against the diametrically opposed "counter-terrorists" which employ similarly no-holds-barred methods.



Page nameDescription
"Alt-right"A modern term used in US and western CCM-media to define conservative-aligned parts of the population that have strayed away from supporting the classic liberal and classic conservatism parties in favour of (sometimes) more reactive, violent or anti-governmental ideas and concepts, in a way similar to the positioning of Antifa in the political spectrum.
"Antisemitism"An etymological misnomer with no clear meaning. In current widespread use to demonise people deemed to be threatening to cherished Judaic official narratives and to close down rational debate. A more accurate description of those it is applied to would be "people who Jews don't like"
"Counter-terrorism"A component of the military-industrial-terrorism-congressional complex which has seen a dramatic growth since 9-11. Originally referred to special forces trained in terrorist warfare, it became a broader meaning for loss of civil liberties and a culture of fear and mistrust.
"Extremism""Extremism" is used as a more modern replacement for "terrorism", one that is used to facilitate the criminalisation of ideas as well as just actions. It polarises the world into the normal ("mainstream") and the abnormal, unhealthy ("extreme").
"Fake News""Fake news website" is a meme started after the 2016 US election, to disparage websites that dissent from the opinions expressed by commercially-controlled media.
"Far right"An all-encompassing CCM buzzword.
"Human resource"
"Mainstream"As opposed to "extreme"
"Overpopulation"A less obviously racist replacement for eugenics, designed to shift focus away from over consumption.
"Radicalisation"Together with "extremism" this word is one of many which deep states are seeking to use to demonize dissent by equating truth telling and earnest inquiry with violence, as a tool to facilitate internet censorship.
"Security service"The phrase "security service" is used to describe groups which, often explicitly exempt from national laws, carry out not only intelligence gathering operations, but also assassinations and murders. This article clarifies why the phrase "security service" is not used in this way on this website.
"Terrorism"Those atrocities which are not committed by governments - except for state terrorism.
Cold WarThe official narrative had 2 diametrically opposed systems locked in combat with one another since soon after WW2. Each of the "superpowers" and its team of allies needed to outdo each other by creating ever more and deadlier weapons, creating a kind of perpetual war for perpetual peace, with the warring parties engaging mainly in covert/proxy wars. Deep state interests blossomed in the climate of fear and paranoia.
Cold War IIA rebooting of the original Cold War, that was definitely tied to the UK deep state in late 2018.
EugenicsThe idea of breeding humans, allegedly discontinued, but under a guise resumed in modern institutions.
IdentitarianismA "hate group".
Political spectrumA metaphorical mapping from all conceivable political systems onto a single dimension. As extreme simplifications go, it was remarkably effective in the 20th and early 21st centuries at polarising political debate and limiting options.
RacismA prejudice based on individuals superficial physical attributes. People have no "race" in the scientific sense.

George Carlin“Now, to balance the scale, I'd like to talk about some things that bring us together, things that point out our similarities instead of our differences. 'Cause that's all you ever hear about in this country. It's our differences. That's all the media and the politicians are ever talking about—the things that separate us, things that make us different from one another. That's the way the ruling class operates in any society. They try to divide the rest of the people. They keep the lower and the middle classes fighting with each other so that they, the rich, can run off with all the fucking money! Fairly simple thing. Happens to work. You know? Anything different—that's what they're gonna talk about—race, religion, ethnic and national background, jobs, income, education, social status, sexuality, anything they can do to keep us fighting with each other, so that they can keep going to the bank! You know how I define the economic and social classes in this country? The upper class keeps all of the money, pays none of the taxes. The middle class pays all of the taxes, does all of the work. The poor are there just to scare the shit out of the middle class. Keep 'em showing up at those jobs.”George Carlin
Bernie Sanders“What [Donald Trump] is doing and this is his entire political strategy is to divide the American people up based on where we came...So you have a president who gives tax breaks to billionaires and wants to cut Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security.

You got a president who gave 83 percent of the tax benefits to the top one percent, not going to run on that one. So how do you win an election? What do you say — You see those undocumented people, they all your enemy. 'Stand with me. Hate them. Let's divide this country up”Bernie SandersJune 2019
