There is an unholy alliance of collusion between government, media and business. The underpinnings of the Constitutional Republic are threatened by this powerful alliance. Government has become so large that it must support socialistic and communistic efforts to self-perpetuate. Media has become infiltrated with socialists and Marxists who despise those who offer dissenting opinions. Big business, such as pharmaceuticals and technology companies, grow and prosper with big government contracts. Hence, when all three are working together to influence elections to install those who will ideologically or economically advance their agendas, the freedom of everyone is jeopardized.
In an Epoch Times Opinion Editorial, Dr. Robert Epstein, Ph.D., outlines how just one sector is using psychological warfare on American voters to influence elections. Epstein, former editor-in-chief of Psychology Today, is a senior research psychologist at the American Institute for Behavioral Research and Technology. He has published 15 books and more than 300 articles on Artificial Intelligence and other topics. Epstein writes: What happened to the gigantic red wave that was supposed to crush the Democrats in the midterm elections? Every Republican in the country is blaming everyone else for this disaster, but almost no one is looking in the right place—and that’s exactly how the Big Tech companies like it.”
Epstein says, “Based on my team’s research, Google, and to a lesser extent, Facebook and other tech monopolies, not only took steps to shift millions of votes to Democrats in the midterms, but they are using their influence to spread rumors and conspiracy theories to make sure people look everywhere for explanations—except at them… Over a period of months, Google nudged undecided voters toward voting blue by showing people politically biased content in their search engine, suppressing content they didn’t want people to see, recommending left-leaning videos on YouTube (which Google owns), allegedly sending tens of millions of emails to people’s spam boxes, and sending go-vote reminders on their home page to liberal and moderate voters.” Epstein says these manipulations have an enormous impact on undecided voters.
In the newsfeed that appeared on cell phones, there were dozens of headlines each day that depicted conservatives and conservative candidates in negative ways. The news media is unapologetic in rarely distinguishing its editorial commentary as part of its “impartial” news coverage. The government, as led by the current administration, makes outrageous claims that the news media repeats without challenge, or with ridicule of dissenters. This unholy alliance will only grow worse now that Donald Trump has announced his run for president. Conspiracy theories will be presented as truth from both the left and right. You must be able to discern for as is written in 2 Timothy 3:13, “But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving and being deceived.” Your ability to discern deception by this unholy alliance is key to your liberty.
