Every news story you are about to review in this comprehensive research paper is true and easily verifiable.This investigation represents 10 months of careful study, research, analysis, source verification and logicaldeduction. Every event and quote presented here is 100% accurate. There are over 190 detailed footnoteswhich I encourage, no, urge, readers to explore and verify for themselves. The Internet version of this paper will allow users to obtain instant verification for each and every footnote by clicking on the footnotes/links.Others can obtain easy verification by entering the key search words (provided at the end of the paper) intothe Yahoo or Google.com search engines. Due to the fact that well organized efforts are under way to suppressthese facts, some of these news links are mysteriously disappearing even as we speak. Fortunately, thisinformation has all been transcribed by many web users and it has therefore been preserved from the censors.These footnote searches will take you directly to the news sites of many well known established mediaorganizations throughout the world as well as opening up doors to a world of knowledge and information thathas been concealed from you. With just a little common sense and a few clicks of a mouse, Google and Yahoonow enable anyone with an ounce of curiosity to become a Sherlock Holmes.This is no opinion piece. Rather it is a collection of buried, but undeniable facts, events, and quotes which,when assembled in one place, will state their own conclusions. In putting together this research in a logicaland sequential format, great care was taken to confirm and double confirm every piece of information. Anyand all questionable data which could not be independently verified to this author's satisfaction was discarded.Taken individually, each story, quote and event may not amount to a full case. But when taken collectively,this mountain of facts should hammer home the truth to even the most sceptical reader. There are of coursethose who have fallen under the hypnotic spell of the TV talking-heads and "experts" whom they worship asauthority figures. Unaccustomed to thinking for themselves, no amount of truth can sway them from their preconceived prejudices. They will even deny that which they see with their own eyes. They are victims of a psychological affliction known as "the lemming effect". Lemmings are small rodents who have been knownto follow each other as they charge to their deaths into raging rivers or off cliffs. Lemminghood is an innate psychological phenomenon, present in most mammals and observable in common people as well as the mostsophisticated and educated elites. Lemminghood is not an intellectual phenomenon - it is psychological. Assuch, no socio-economic class is immune to its strangulating effect. A grant-seeking university scientist can be a lemming just as much as a fashion obsessed teenage girl. One blindly follows the latest trendy theorywhile the other blindly follows the latest trendy clothing style. What's the difference? Neither can resist theforce of nature.The power to fit in with one's social peers can be irresistible. To a human lemming, the logic behind an opiniondoesn't count as much as the power and popularity behind an opinion. Man, like lemming, behaves collective-ly. And it could be no other way. Naturally, the individual must be equipped with this trait. Otherwise, thesmallest steps toward civilization could never have been made. Lemminghood is a survival trait, an inborninstinct in the majority of people. However, as with all natural phenomena, this tendency can be manipulatedand used for harmful purposes.It is this lemming effect which enables entire segments of a society to lose their sense of judgment all at thesame time. This research paper will likely be wasted on many lemmings. For lemmings, denial is a basic psychological defence mechanism used to not only shield themselves from unpleasant realities, but also toreassure themselves that they will still fit within the acceptable range of opinion held by their peer group.Lemmings are absolutely terrified at the thought of being labelled as an "extremist" or a "conspiracy theorist".At all costs, their beliefs must always be on the "right" side of the issue and conform within the boundaries of their lemming peers. Lemmings simply cannot bear the burden of responsibility, or the discomfort, whichcomes with thinking independently. They'll resist any efforts to change their misguided beliefs with all their mental energy. We can try to open their closed minds and free them from their self-imposed blindness, but it'snot easy fighting the force of human nature. The chains of ideological conformity have too strong of a grip,and breaking them is a difficult task. With the limited resources at our disposal, it is next to impossible tocompete with the media lemming-masters. Nevertheless, some of us must make the meagre attempt, and thuslay the foundation upon which the truth might one day rise again.
