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".
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.

Political spectrum

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".

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.

"Terrorism"

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]

"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.

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.

Black Lives Matter“White people are a genetic defect of blackness”2020
Black Lives Matter“This country is built upon violence. What was the American Revolution, what's our diplomacy across the globe? We go in and we blow up countries and we replace their leaders with leaders who we like. So for any American to accuse us of being violent is extremely hypocritical”2020
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. That's not what he's going to run on. You've got a president who tried to throw 32 million people off health care. He ain't gonna run on that one. 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
