In search for truth, the most important aspect that everyone must possess is the freedom of expression. This is the greatest factor implanted by God to human nature and without this, the full and proper growth of individual is invariably stunted. If man is not free to communicate his ideas to others, not only is his moral and intellectual development stifled but his fellowmen are deprived of the benefit and stimulation which he might impart to them. Unless individuals are at liberty to discuss the various issues that confront the life of man, the search for truth and perfection is impeded. Since freedom of expression tackles not only the verbal acts of expression, this right can also exercise through publications such as newspapers, periodicals, magazines, books, leaflets and by modern technologies such as radio, television and internet. Thus our constitution guaranteed an absolute protection for this precious right of its citizens. But what if this precious right, instead of being a channel to enjoy the flow of truth, becomes a mean to empower the corrupt and hinder the necessary information that people should acquire. What if the freedom of expression shifted from serving the majority into the service of the interest of few individuals who are in power?
Throughout the history of humanity, the freedom of expression is the most targeted prey of all carnivorous and parasitic elements of the society. Even the Church, in order to conceal its corrupt leadership, compromised the truth and suppressed the divine right that makes people free from all sorts of deceptions. In fact, history can explain how the Catholic Church fought against Protestantism by suppressing the liberty of expression. This purpose gave way to the rise of the so-called Catholic Inquisition and Jesuitism.
Since people cannot be easily controlled from bursting their sentiments and their desire to know the truth, power-mongers and lone-shark businessmen worked out to make lies appeared to be the truth. The media and all the channels to exercise freedom of expression are diverted to serve their own interests. John Swinton, a preeminent New York journalist, said in a banquet;
There is no such thing, at this date of the world’s history, in America, as an independent press. You know it and I know it. There is not one of you who dares to write your honest opinions, and if you did, you know beforehand that it would never appear in print.
I am paid weekly for keeping my honest opinion out of the paper I am connected with. Others of you are paid similar salaries for similar things, and any of you who would be so foolish as to write honest opinions would be out on the streets looking for another job. If I allowed my honest opinions to appear in one issue of my paper, before twenty-four hours my occupation would be gone.
The business of the journalists is to destroy the truth, to lie outright, to pervert, to vilify, to fawn at the feet of mammon, and to sell his country and his race for his daily bread. You know it and I know it, and what folly is this toasting an independent press?
We are the tools and vassals of rich men behind the scenes. We are the jumping jacks they pull the strings and we dance. Our talents, our possibilities and our lives are all the property of other men. We are intellectual prostitutes.

In many cases of manipulating the press, the enemies of truth are successful in corrupting the government and concealing many information about their crimes and betrayal of public trust. They darkened the mind of the people that it became unable to detect what is truth or what is error, and driven them to act according to their devilish plans. I just want to quote a statement came from the former First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt where she said;
Nazi Germany is no more. The Catholic Church is still here with us. More powerful than ever. With her own Press and the World Press at her bidding. Anything published about the atrocities in the future will not be believed. . .”
“Your book might convince a few. But what about the hundreds of millions already brainwashed by Catholic propaganda?”
(Avro Manhattan, The Vatican’s Holocaust, Ch.9)
The Catholic Church is one of the foundations of Hitler’s Nazi government which doomed Europe with horrible violence and tragic experiences for the Jews and lower races. In Croatia, where Nazism was highly influenced by the Catholic clergy, Europe witnessed the most cruel and inhumane activities that a government can do against its people in this modern age, but media and publications were shut up from telling this information to the people beyond the Atlantic.
Our constitution guarantees security to preserve the freedom of the press as manifestation of the existing democracy in the country. But something is above the constitution, and these are the people who conspired to manipulate the country for the sake of their own interests. Our right had already purchased, the disciples of a free press are hostages of their own profession, and people were made to believe to the existing “democracy” which is not real. Anyone who speak about the truth will consider as doing a revolutionary act. David Rockefeller, in a meeting of Bilderbergers in Germany, gave a hint by saying; “We are grateful to the Washington Post, the New York Times, Time Magazine and other great publications whose directors have attended our meetings and respected their promise of discretion for almost forty years… It would have been impossible for us to develop our plan for the world if we had been subject to the bright lights of publicity during those years. But, the world is now more sophisticated and prepared to march towards a world government. The supranational sovereignty of an intellectual elite and world bankers is surely preferable to the national auto determination practiced in past centuries“. Edward Bernays, a pioneer in the field public relations, stated; “The conscious and intelligent manipulation of the organized habits and opinions of the masses is an important element in democratic society. Those who manipulate this unseen mechanism of society constitute an invisible government which is the true ruling power of our country.”
Yes, freedom of expression is the most powerful and effective tool of a liberal mind, but this can be also a fruitful tree of evil when controlled by a wicked mind. The Bible explained;
And the tongue is a fire, a world of iniquity: so is the tongue among our members, that it defileth the whole body, and setteth on fire the course of nature; and it is set on fire of hell. (James 3:6)
Naturally, common people don’t want war; neither in Russia nor in England nor in America, nor in Germany or in other country. That is understood. But, after all, it is the leaders of the country who determine the policy and it is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy or a fascist dictatorship or a Parliament or a Communist dictatorship. …voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. So, as Hermann Goring said, “All you have to do is to tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same way in any country.” Through media, people of the higher echelon can set the world on fire. By bringing false alarm and distorted news, the minds of the people are continuing to believe upon those things which is in accord to the plans of monstrous elites, worrying for a problem which is not existing, and hoping for the solution which actually the reason of their pain. One of the best example of this kind of deception is the event happened prior to the war that destroyed Iraq’s Saddam Hussein. The media informed the people of the world about the alleged biological weapon of mass destruction being produced in Iraq. Colin Powell claimed that Iraq had purchased special aluminum tubes whose only possible use was in uranium enrichment centrifuges. Both CIA and Powell’s own State Department confirmed that the tubes were parts for missiles Saddam was legally allowed to have. Following the invasion, no centrifuges, aluminum or otherwise were found. Powell claimed the Iraqis had illegal rockets and launchers hidden in the palm trees of Western Iraq. None were ever found. Powell claimed that the Iraqis had 8,500 liters (2245 gallons) of Anthrax. None was ever found. Actually, the news about 9/11 attack and the news about the Global Warming, they are all deceptions sponsored by world broadcasting companies. Richard Salent, former President of CBC News said; “Our job is to give people not what they want, but what we decide they ought to have.”
Why is it that Madonna and Britney Spears are on the front page of newspapers all over the world, rather than our young men and women who are overseas fighting for our (supposed) liberty? Iraq wins their liberty while America loses theirs! Dads, moms, brothers, sisters, uncles, and aunts are dying while media is pushing an immoral agenda and do everything possible to cover-up the sacrifice. As of May 2008, there were 4,083 American war deaths since the beginning of the conflict… “Freedom is not free!” The main media networks purposely hide the causality count.
Why is it that since September 11, 2001 the media continuously push fear, fear and more fear? Not courage, but fear; not bravery, but fear; not valor, but fear. James Madison said, “If tyranny or oppression ever come into this country, it will come in the disguise of fighting a foreign enemy”?
