The News and Information

Adi Da Samraj

 

“The “News and Information” media of
popular culture do not often invite the public to the
exercise of discriminating intelligence. On the contrary,
the popular media thrive on hype, propagandized states of
emotion and mind, and nondiscriminating responses to every
kind of advertised goods, persuasions, and
results.

Until the media that inform the
masses of humanity begin to invite the individual to
exercise discriminating intelligence in all matters, and
until human beings in general become founded in the higher
Wisdom-Culture and the intimate politics of authentic human
existence, there can be no true wondering about the madness
we inherit in the daily News.

Indeed, the hypocritical media
reaction of surprise (and sometimes disgust) in the face of
all the kinds of fascinating and bizarre news in the world
is even the product of a kind of competitive rivalry. The
Cult of the News would be senior and superior to any
phenomenon about which it reports. (From the popular point
of view, the “Messiah,” or the “Messenger” is always senior
to the Message.) Everyone in the world is in the cult game,
including the media the themselves. Everyone wishes to be
glamorous and right and the center of attention.

The News is one of the principal
forms of modern popular entertainment. The Messenger is
glamorized by the superior entertainment value of every kind
of Message. Therefore, the News exploits the vulgarity of
subhuman events and bastardizes the achievements of superior
men and women. Then why should there be any wondering if
immature people follow false cults, false leaders, false
ideologies, and destructive causes? To be enthusiastic and
also false is the hypocritical core of the “American Way.”
Indeed, Western culture as a whole was founded on religious
lies, political exploitation, and manipulative propaganda of
every kind. And these means are yet to be
overcome.
