Make a Noise Like a Cow

Information warfare is being waged against you, constantly, whether you like it or not, whether you know it or not. "The leading imperialist powers," noted a Soviet text from the 1980s, "essentially maintain that, unlike other fields of international relations, internal information and propaganda should not be subject to regulation and should function independently of the various international agreements. Actually, this means justification and legalization of any and all forms of subversive propaganda, including psychological warfare, misinformation, interference in the internal affairs of other countries, and even outright violation of foreign legislation. Such external-oriented propaganda is supposed to resort to misinformation and anti-Soviet and anticommunist hysteria so as to create and maintain tensions between countries with different social systems."
As every useful idiot knows, anticommunist propaganda prevails throughout the world: in Cuba, Venezuela and Nicaragua; in Congo, Zimbabwe and Angola; in Vietnam, North Korea and China; in Russia, the United States -- and even in Ukraine, where the imperialist powers are always interfering in the legislative process. Only last week Reuters reported thousands of opposition demonstrators rallying outside the Ukrainian parliament. The Speaker of the Parliament was pelted with eggs. (Here is a link to footage of the protests.) Tens of thousands shouted slogans, like "Hang the Communists!" Such slogans, every idiot knows, are taken from the speeches of the stridently anticommunist U.S. president, who is constantly denouncing the Communist Party Soviet Union underground as it reassembles the Soviet Union. The Ukrainian protesters were obvious CIA agents, all twenty to thirty thousand of them, attempting to prevent the Soviet Union from retaining its Black Sea naval base. "Hang the Communists!" they shouted. "Glory to Ukraine!"
What the useful idiot doesn't know, of course, concerns the information warfare techniques taught by Soviet generals. Professor Nina Krygina, a nun who resides at the Middle Ural Nunnery, has given us a glimpse inside the Russian educational establishment in a recent lecture on information warfare based on the work of Lt. Gen. Nikolai S. Leonov, who is a professor at the Moscow State Institute of International Affairs. "You have to listen to what he says," noted Krygina, "because he is a professional spy." Leonov's Ph.D. is in history, and he also lectures in an Orthodox Church Seminary, where many of the priests are known to be KGB officers. In this way the Church extends its prestige to the secret police, while the secret police extends its prestige to the Church.
Americans will be surprised to learn that information is not what they imagine. The propaganda of the anticommunists is completely useless in the face of far more serious methods used by the KGB. Quoting from Leonov's teachings on information warfare, Krygina explained: "There are three basic flows of information: (1) Reliable State Information. This information will never reach the general population and the common man. This is because it is the most precise information, and is delivered directly to the top leadership of the country. It always has a security classification rating of either classified, secret, top secret, strategic importance, or destroy after reading. What I just described is absolutely reliable information. It is only destined for leadership."
The American "imperialists" know nothing of this system, because reliable information seldom reaches the top leadership of the United States. How is this possible? Krygina continues to the second flow of information which is absolutely essential to victory: "As Leonov says, this is the largest, the Main Flow. The purpose of it is to kill people's free time so that we won't seriously analyze anything. No thoughts of any serious nature, I repeat. This is what psychologists call 'informational noise,' so the human being won't have any time to take his thinking to a logical conclusion. This is a main information flow that that mass media is designed to deliver. This is what we see on TV, read in magazines and see in newspapers. We have to understand this."
American popular entertainment has spread throughout the world. Meanwhile, the KGB rides the resulting wave of white noise. Soviet generals, through the office of intermediaries, paid U.S. movie and television producers to put more sex and violence into American entertainment. Decade by decade, audiences become addicted and fascinated by the resulting spectacle. They no longer think or analyze, until a moment is created for them to do so. According to Krygina: "(3) The third information flow is the most interesting, because this is the flow that shapes the architectural model of consciousness [that the KGB strategists want you to have]. The third flow is a Specially Designed Flow, that differs from the aforementioned Main Flow that numbs you, so that you crawl into bed without being able to finish your thoughts or even pray. All the informational messages of this third flow, Leonov explains: 'are like the crack of a whip that dictates to me what particular barn I have to get to when I am thinking.'"
When a man is not overcome by the informational noise, and his mind is free to think, he is forced to think along certain lines by the third flow. He is taught the stupidity of nationalist sentiments, like "Glory to Ukraine." However, if national or racial sentiments work in favor of Kremlin policy, then they are good and encouraged. For example, any nationalist or racist sentiment that contains elements of resentment or hatred toward the United States must be nurtured and encouraged under a "multicultural banner." If Americans or Ukrainians shout "Glory to Ukraine, or glory to America," they are counted as racists or fascists. If they chant "Hang the Communists," the major news media must avert its gaze. Every idiot knows that there aren't any communists anywhere. All enemies are to the Right.
According to Professor Krygina, "Whenever you come across any secular information, one has to think that this was designed by someone with a purpose." Referring to Lt. Gen. Leonov's lectures, she reminded her listeners "that all this is explained by a top-level intelligence officer, a general in spy craft. Whenever he hears anything, he listens for the crack of a whip guiding people in a specific direction. This is the way we have to treat information as adults." Examples are many: Global warming, ozone holes, nuclear winter, the general destructiveness of capitalist industries, the wickedness of U.S. imperialism, the virtues of homosexuality, the innocence of the Rosenberg spies and Alger Hiss, the wickedness of Joseph McCarthy, the crimes of the CIA, etc. Also don't forget: Guns kill people. Put away your nuclear weapons and make a world free from fear. Islam is a religion of peace and the U.S. imperialists deserve what they get.
A large volume could be written on the subject of information warfare. Unfortunately, such a volume would not sell many copies. White noise prevails wherever and whenever you cannot hear the crack of the whip, telling you which barn to live in.
Now make a noise like a cow. Someone is coming to milk you in the morning.
