    NOAM CHOMSKY: We were talking about unions before. Union busting is criminal activity by the government, because they’re saying, "You can go ahead and do it; we’re not going to apply the laws," effectively. And the COINTELPRO, which you mentioned, is actually the worst systematic and extended violation of basic civil rights by the federal government. It maybe compares with Wilson’s Red Scare. But COINTELPRO went on from the late ’50 right through all of the ’60s; it finally ended, at least theoretically ended, when the courts terminated it in the early ’70s. And it was serious.

    It started, as is everything, going after the Communist Party, then the Puerto Rican Independence Party. Then it extended—the women’s movement, the New Left, but particularly black nationalists. And it ended up—didn’t end up, but one of the events was a straight Gestapo-style assassination of two black organizers, Fred Hampton and Mark Clark, literally. The FBI set up the assassination. The Chicago police actually carried it out, broke into the apartment at 4:00 in the morning and murdered them. Fake information that came from the FBI about arms stores and so on. There was almost nothing about it. In fact, the information about this, remarkably, was released at about the same time as Watergate. I mean, as compared with this, Watergate was a tea party. There was nothing, you know?

    The strategy of distraction
    The primary element of social control is the strategy of distraction which is to divert public attention from important issues and changes determined by the political and economic elites, by the technique of flood or flooding continuous distractions and insignificant information.



    Distraction strategy is also essential to prevent the public interest in the essential knowledge in the area of the science, economics, psychology, neurobiology and cybernetics.



    “Maintaining public attention diverted away from the real social problems, captivated by matters of no real importance. Keep the public busy, busy, busy, no time to think, back to farm and other animals (quote from text Silent Weapons for Quiet War).”

    2 Create problems, then offer solutions
    This method is also called “problem -reaction- solution.“

    It creates a problem, a “situation” referred to cause some reaction in the audience, so this is the principal of the steps that you want to accept.

    For example: let it unfold and intensify urban violence, or arrange for bloody attacks in order that the public is the applicant’s security laws and policies to the detriment of freedom.


    Or create an economic crisis to accept as a necessary evil retreat of social rights and the dismantling of public services.


    The gradual strategy
    Acceptance to an unacceptable degree, just apply it gradually, dropper, for consecutive years.


    That is how they radically new socioeconomic conditions (neoliberalism) were imposed during the 1980s and 1990s:



    the minimal state

    privatization

    precariousness

    flexibility

    massive unemployment

    wages

    do not guarantee a decent income,



    ...so many changes that have brought about a revolution if they had been applied once.
