The Manufacture of Consent?

Posted by Orrin Woodward on June 15, 2015

The ownership and control of the Mass Media is one of the key ingredient in the ruling elites plan for control of Western Civilization. Most of the news, as a result, fits the “manufactured” world-view that the elites have carefully constructed for mass consumption. Before you think I have gone off the deep end, let me share some of thoughts from some of the best minds of the topic of media and control.  Austrian economists Joseph Salerno described the ruling elites agenda in his brilliant introduction to one of Murray Rothbard’s classic works on money:

The ruling class, however, confronts one serious and ongoing problem: how to persuade the productive majority, whose tribute or taxes it consumes, that its laws, regulations, and policies are beneficial; that is, that they coincide with “the public interest” or are designed to promote “the common good” or to optimize “social welfare.” Given its minority status, failure to solve this problem exposes the political class to serious consequences. Even passive resistance by a substantial part of the producers, in the form of mass tax resistance, renders the income of the political class and, therefore, its continued existence extremely precarious. More ominously, attempts to suppress such resistance may cause it to spread and intensify and eventually boil over into an active revolution whose likely result is the forcible ousting of the minority exploiting class from its position of political power. 

This is why the elites capture the society of every nation following the same 3M formula – Money, Media, Military. First, the ruling elite captures the Money supply, then it purchased the Mass Media, and finally, it buys the politicians to use the nation’s Military for its egregious ends. Is anyone surprised that the ruling elites, once they have captured the Money supply, would quickly use the fake money to buy controlling interest over the Mass Media. For the role of the Mass Media is to persuade the “dumbed down” people that society needs the ruling elites oversight. To illustrate, has anyone else noticed how often the Mass Media quotes intellectual experts to prove the validity of its messaging? Of course, what’s not revealed is that nearly all these so called experts in the university/corporate system are also bought and paid for by the ruling elites.  Salerno, again, explained this phenomena:

Here is where the intellectuals come in. It is their task to convince the public to actively submit to State rule because it is beneficial to do so, or at least to passively endure the State’s depredations because the alternative is anarchy and chaos. In return for fabricating an ideological cover for its exploitation of the masses of subjects or taxpayers, these “court intellectuals” are rewarded with the power, wealth, and prestige of a junior partnership in the ruling elite. Whereas in pre-industrial times these apologists for State rule were associated with the clergy, in modern times—at least since the Progressive Era in the U.S.—they have been drawn increasingly from the academy. Politicians, bureaucrats, and those whom they subsidize and privilege within the economy thus routinely trumpet lofty ideological motives for their actions in order to conceal from the exploited and plundered citizenry their true motive of economic gain.

As I researched the Mass Media’s influence within society, I think I was most shocked by the elites’ level of hubris. For instance, Walter Lippmann, the two time Pulitzer Prize winning journalist and author, wrote one of the classic works on why the Mass Media must manipulate public opinion. In the appropriately named book, Public Opinion (1922), Lippmann described the masses as a “great beast” and a “bewildered herd” that needed the governing class to direct them. Not surprisingly, he defined the ruling elite as “a specialized class whose interests reach beyond the locality.” Lippmann believed the ruling elites (a class of experts, specialists and bureaucrats) needed to circumvent the primary defect of democracy, the impossible ideal of the “omni-competent citizen.” In effect, the “bewildered herd” is mesmerized by the ruling elites into being merely “interested spectators of action,” rather than active citizens. Lippmann explained that participation should only be for the “the responsible man”, not the regular citizen.

The Mass media, subsequently, is no longer about reporting facts or highlighting competing visions for the future. Rather, it is used to produce ruling-elite approved propaganda to mislead the public into supporting initiatives that benefit the elites at the masses expense. Lippmann even coined the term “manufacture of consent” to explain how the elites manipulate public opinion through Mass Media. In other words, the Mass Media reports what the ruling elites want you to believe, not what necessarily is the truth. But don’t take my word for it, let’s have Lippmann explain “manufacture of consent” in his own words from his book, Public Opinion:

That the manufacture of consent is capable of great refinements no one, I think, denies. The process by which public opinions arise is certainly no less intricate than it has appeared in these pages, and the opportunities for manipulation open to anyone who understands the process are plain enough. . . . as a result of psychological research, coupled with the modern means of communication, the practice of democracy has turned a corner. A revolution is taking place, infinitely more significant than any shifting of economic power. . . . Under the impact of propaganda, not necessarily in the sinister meaning of the word alone, the old constants of our thinking have become variables. It is no longer possible, for example, to believe in the original dogma of democracy; that the knowledge needed for the management of human affairs comes up spontaneously from the human heart. Where we act on that theory we expose ourselves to self-deception, and to forms of persuasion that we cannot verify. It has been demonstrated that we cannot rely upon intuition, conscience, or the accidents of casual opinion if we are to deal with the world beyond our reach.

Lippmann, however, was not alone in revealing the ruling elites plan at the beginning of the 20th century. Although the ruling elites have learned to be more careful, it still isn’t too difficult to piece together their revealed agenda. Perhaps no one was clearer than Edward Bernays, the nephew of Sigmund Freud and father of “public relations”. Without apology, he applied his uncle’s teaching and techniques to alter the subconscious of the customers of his client’s product to encourage a buying decision. Bernays boasted of his ability to control the masses in his ruling elite classic book Propaganda:

The conscious and intelligent manipulation of the organized habits and opinions of the masses is an important element in democratic society. Those who manipulate this unseen mechanism of society constitute an invisible government which is the true ruling power of our country. We are governed, our minds are molded, our tastes formed, our ideas suggested, largely by men we have never heard of. This is a logical result of the way in which our democratic society is organized. Vast numbers of human beings must cooperate in this manner if they are to live together as a smoothly functioning society. Our invisible governors are, in many cases, unaware of the identity of their fellow members in the inner cabinet.

The final example of Mass Media control is my personal testimony. It was 2008, in the middle of a multimillion dollar legal dispute between a billion dollar company and the top leaders of my company, when I was contacted by Forbes Magazine. Needless to say, I was shocked to hear this large corporate magazine (that reports upon billion dollar companies) wanted to write about a leadership company which barely surpassed 40 million dollars at the time. When I first asked the reporter why she picked us, she replied she was interested in network marketing and the leadership and Christian principles I utilized. I thought this was odd but naively agreed to help. After interviewing me for over six hours, she had the gist of our business, the dispute with our former supplier, and any supporting evidence I had. Strangely, over the course of our discussion, it came out that she knew nothing about network marketing (the business I was in), had never heard of John Maxwell (the number one leadership trainer and author), nor had ever heard of Pastor Bill Hybels (the pastor of one of the largest churches in America (even though she lived in Chicago where his church is located) who had selected Chris Brady and my NY Times bestseller Launching a Leadership Revolution as one of his best books for 2007.

Curious, I asked her why she would do an article about three subjects she admittedly knew nothing about. At first, she started explaining that her superiors asked her to write it, but then I think she realized this wouldn’t jive with what she previously had said. She abruptly broke off the conversation and simply said she was doing her job. Of course, now I realize the article could have been written without interviewing me at all since it included practically nothing from what we discussed. Something, however, wasn’t adding up. Why would someone write a nonsensical article in a major magazine on subjects she admitted to knowing nothing about nor have any interest in? I smelled a rat. Several months later, I found the rat. In the strangest of coincidences (I smile when I say that 🙂 ), I discovered the company I was in the legal dispute with had run expensive centerfold advertisements in Forbes magazine. Whoa! Now I understood how Mass Media manufactures consent first hand. 🙂

Nevertheless, one of the key lessons a leader learns on his journey is how to turn the lemons of life into lemonade. In this case, my personal exposure to Mass Media shenanigans led me to study the role of media in controlling what and how people think. This eventually led to the Financial Matrix through the control of Money, Media, and the Military. With our liberties at stake the masses can and must learn to think for themselves. And, despite what the ruling elites have done to “dumb down” our educational system, the people are still capable of learning, doing, and teaching leadership. In fact, I believe the key to breaking the Financial Matrix is for a group of men and women to launch a leadership revolution through serving others rather than manipulating or coercing as the elites do. While this isn’t an easy task, I know it’s possible because I have spent the last  20+  years of my life helping people lead themselves, their families, and their businesses.

I reject the theory that the masses are sentenced to be part of the “great beast” the “bewildered herd” which must leave all the thinking to the elites. Instead, the LIFE Leadership founders created a company that believes everyone is called to lead wherever  they are and can with the right information applied consistently. Don’t be scared of the word leadership, for it merely means serving others. We can all do that. I cannot imagine a better purpose to fulfill in life than building LIFE Leadership and helping people break free from the “bewildered herd” that are trapped in the Financial Matrix.

    A very powerful article, Orrin. Thank you for your continued vigilance and defense of our freedoms!

  2. Wow!! Orrin… I appreciate how fluidly you can make a complex problem seem so simple, and I LOVE that you’re not bringing up a problem without a solution! I often wonder how far into the media rabbit hole do we have to go, to find someone that actually knows, and would actually admit what they are doing?? How deep does this really go?
    Anywho, I’m amazed with how much just turning off the TV in our home 4 years ago has done. Even though my kids still watch Netflix and DVD/blue rays, just being rid of the Media part has been dramatic. Christmas lists are very short for example of something simple, whereas before…. Long lists of ridiculous!
    Thanks again for sharing.

    • Orrin Woodward said

      Robby, Getting rid of advertisements going into your house and helped your kids thinking and also helped your pocketbook! 🙂

  3. The first part of this article gave me the heebie Jeebies. The later part made me mad and the last paragraph gave me hope. I am glad to be on the side of fighting control of Money, Media and Military. Thanks Orrin

    Thank you

    • Orrin Woodward said

      Love it Venkat! Just like I said earlier, the truth sets your free, but usually only after it ticks you off. 🙂

  4. Michael Kolp said

    Orrin!! This article is deep and loaded with so much truth. After having my thoughts opened further it is mind-blowing to see the examples of manufactured media. Anything from CIA drug scandals to sicknesses can pull the population into a haze and shape their thinking. All this talk of our economy that is on the rise even seems manufactured. We have a highly trained society but, poorly educated society as well. Thanks for the means to educate the population for their own sake and all our countries sake.

    God Bless,
    Mike Kolp

  5. Tina Abernathy said

    Excellent article Orrin. I have learned and I’ll continue to learn so much through and because of Life Leadership. I love the term “modern day slavery” as it applies to the dumbing down of folks. When the elite control education they control the masses just like they controlled the slaves. Blessed to be a part of a community of leaders who are unlearning so much and seeking the truth to help free millions who are willing to seek an education as defined Carter G. Woodson “an true education must cause a man to think and do for himself”

  6. Actually, I think the masses often act like a “bewildered herd”. Once you start learning just how easily that beast can be herded, it’s hard to see otherwise.

    Where I differ with that view, though, is in the idea anyone — ANYONE — who develops the awareness that they are part of the herd, the desire to change that, and develops the skills to do so, can break from the herd and lead. Anyone can become “elite” in some aspect of their life, and in doing so, naturally becomes a leader among other members of the herd who aren’t even yet aware that they’re part of the herd.

    • Orrin Woodward said

      Well said Scott. You must choose to break free from the herd and this helps in breaking free from the Financial Matrix!

  7. Titi Woki said

    And the truth shall make you free indeed! My life is better because of the kind of education I continue to receive on a daily basis from Life Leadership! Thank you Mr Woodward for teaching truth in a time when there is so much darkness in our world – On to a million!

  8. The Media Martix strikes again!
    Orrin Thank You for making sense of the noise, the clutter, the trickery & manipulation the mass media creates. It’s so sad how many people dedicate their lives to tricking, taking advantage of, lying to and enslaving others, whether by choice or out of ignorance. Thank You Orrin for Your Discernment and tireless will to fight oppression!

    • Orrin Woodward said

      You are welcome Chris. We are helping people break free from the herd and Financial Matrix!

  9. Yitz Weiss said

    Orrin, this is a phenomenal and insightful post. I love how you take the complicated and make it easy-to-understand. Proud to be part of the LIFE community!


    • Orrin Woodward said

      Thanks Yitz! It seems like I have to read ten books on one subject before I can write one 1500 word article! 🙂

      • Yitz Weiss said

        …and I can’t stress enough how much that’s appreciated, Orrin! You are doing a tremendous service to everyone!

        Servant leadership at it’s best 🙂

  10. Ken Hendon said

    AMEN! My first (recognized) exposure to media bias was reading a newspaper article about a football game I attended. They had it all wrong. Having experienced this for the past 50 years, the pattern became obvious. Thanks for shining the light of truth on the economics of bias and manipulation of the media.


  11. Heidi said

    Orrin, We’re proud to be associated with the Life Leadership organization…. providing an alternative to the mass media and giving people an opportunity to think critically for themselves. Thanks for all you do!

  12. Danny Kellenberger said

    Wow Orrin, what an interesting article. It borders on shameful what the ruling elite have done. I appreciate you standing tall and leading from the front this leadership Revolution to free people like me from the Financial Matrix! Thank you!!
    Carpe Diem

    • Orrin Woodward said

      Danny, it is shameful and it runs counter to everything that America was founded upon. Like Burke said, “the only way for evil to flourish is when good men and women do nothing.” LIFE Leadership is doing something! 🙂

  13. Chad Waters said

    Hi Orrin!

    Let’s eliminate all media! Let’s get more people educated on all these facts and principles and help one more understand everyday!

    God bless!
    Keep teaching the truth vs the average hiding behind it!


    • Orrin Woodward said

      Chad, there will always be media, but the key is that the media is free to report all sides of the issue and not just regurgitate the “ruling elites” manufactured consent. 🙂 thanks, Orrin

  14. Melinda Shaum said

    As a high school educator, I am embarrassed to confirm that none of the details in your blog are even hinted at as part of public education. But now I know and I can share the information with students, but my oh my look at the hole we are in. Your blog is, once again, a history lesson that everyone in the United States needs to hear. Thank you for your years of study and your diligence in getting this information in the hands of a generation that can turn the country around. My husband and I are fired up about the high quality information we are sharing. We are fired up because now we know the truth. You are appreciated so much!

    • Orrin Woodward said

      Melinda, most teachers are hard working and many get frustrated because the bureaucracy hinders their ability to serve and educate the adolescents. Keep the fire burning and encourage as many teachers to do the same while we make progress to right the wrongs and give everyone an opportunity to learn, live, and share truth in love to others. thanks, Orrin

  15. Mark Paul said

    Hello Orrin,
    Thank you for being bold enough to explain what you are learning. The media has done a good job of making people think that truth like you exposed is just “conspiracy theory” to try to discredit those who start to see through the curtain. Keep fighting for truth!

  16. Orrin thanks so much for shining light on this topic. Sometimes I hear things and I know it’s not right but I don’t know what it is that’s not right about it.
    In this article you do a great job explaining what it is that is not right. When I say shining light on this topic it reminds me of sitting in a room as the sun goes down. The room gradually gets darker but you don’t seem to notice until somebody turns the light on and then you realize how dark it was. I am so thankful to be part of Life Leadership and be partnered up with a group of people who are shining the light of truth on America before it’s too late. And furthermore almost everybody I talk to realizes that there is a problem. Most people just don’t have the ability or should I say knowledge to put their finger on it like you did here.
    The reason I know this is true because of my personal experience growing up in a very legalistic religion. I always thought like they did until somebody(Lifel Leadership) introduce me to some truth and then I could see the propaganda at work. Now I look back and I can’t even see why it made sense to me. And when I speak to my family or my friends who are still part of that religion I hear them saying the same things I used to say and I shutter. LADIES AND GENTLEMEN THIS IS REAL!!!!!!
    Again thank you Orrin

    • Orrin Woodward said

      Chris, keep shining light in a dark world brother!

      • Doug Noble said

        Let’s not forget freedom of religion is one of the things we are striving to uphold. It is one of the things this country was founded upon. Probably one of the main reasons this country came in to being. I agree with what you say Chris but remember we must be free to worship as we see fit.

  17. Bill Eder said

    Orrin: Thank you once again for your insight and willingness to share your knowledge. I have lived
    Seven plus decades. I appreciate your knowledge and wisdom. Many years ago my father (Who by the way did not even attend High School)was an avid reader. He said many times “Son be a leader not a uneducated sheep (follower). Of course as a know it all youngster I thought what does Dad know?
    In my twenties I was amazed how much Dad learned. “So soon old so late smart.” Through my Dad I became an independent thinker. When You and Life Leadership came into my life it brought these truths into much clearer focus. Thanks to the resources, Cd’s books and association I continue to learn more every day. This blog is so insightful and refreshing. The media does need an overhaul as does our government. Welcome Life Leadership.

    • Orrin Woodward said

      Amen Bill! It sounds like your dad had what is lacking today – wisdom! thanks, Orrin

  18. A great article Orrin, it is great to be part of an organisation that speaks truth. I will be 72 years young this November, and i have also being spreading the word about the elites control of media, banking, and of the greater populations perception of reality for several years. It is greatifying to see this evil being exposed. Thank you. God Bless.

  19. Leslie Gebhart said

    Great post Orrin,
    If there’s one thing I CAN’T STAND its being manipulated!! Not only do you bring the deception and agenda into light, you give us the capability to fight against it and make a difference. I hate to think how hopeless I would feel without Life Leadership. Thanks for all you have done and continue to do.

  20. Bart Springer said

    Orrin, thank you for yet another great blog, supported by even more sources culled from the pages of history, disclosing the manipulative power of the elites. These truths, distilled in your blogs, need to be shared with every society on earth willing and able to listen. I especially liked the story of your personal contact with the Forbes writer and discovering her real agenda. I would have loved to be a fly on the wall during that interview!

    • Orrin Woodward said

      Bart, thank you. The older I get and the higher I climb the mountain, the more clarity I get on what’s really going on. Much wisdom can be garnered through painful moments if you have the courage to persist. Keep leading Bart! thanks, Orrin

  21. John Mossner said

    Great article, Orrin. Being around Life Leadership has really opened my eyes in this area. It amazes me now how most people (including me in the past) put so much trust in the media outlets they watch or read. Let’s all stop being pawns in their game! Thanks for clarifying the Forbes stuff too. It didn’t smell right. It read like an un-educated opinion piece. Now we can see they were most likely paid assassins. Shameful.

  22. Micah Kramer said

    Orrin, fantastic article. Pretty amazing look at what the masses so eagerly “subscribe” to – to the detriment of family values and their financial fitness. Unplugging from the Matrix isn’t easy – but to quote you, it is “WORTH IT!”

    Thanks to you, Laurie and so many warriors for illuminating this path for all those with the courage to dream big.

    God Bless,

  23. Shloimy said

    Hi Orrin, Thank You for sharing the truth, it gives me the goose bump everytime I read your articles, it’s heart warming to see that there are people not scared of exposing the truth in public! Thank You Orrin for all that you do for us! On to 1,000,000 and beyond!!!

  24. terry said

    Great read Orrin. Truth is stranger than fiction!

  25. Orrin,

    Thanks again for writing on a topic that I would not ordinarily delve into. Because of you and Life Leadership, I am becoming more aware of economic and political issues that affect our country and communities.

  26. Dave Hall said

    Thank you Orrin! I think of what Joseph said when he forgave his brothers, “What you meant for evil, God meant for good.” Here we see the reverse. Namely, what God meant for good (the 3 M’s of Money, Media and Military), the elites have used for evil. One of the qualities I most admire in you is your Joseph-like choice to remain humble and forgiving toward those who are perpetrating evil on the masses while vehemently exposing, opposing and condemning their actions. This honors God, displays integrity, and exemplifies true servant leadership. Thank you so much!

  27. josh dames said

    Incredible Orrin!!! Anyone who studies what Lifeleadership is all about, they soon realize through a series of books,cds,and Association That it is a true leadership education!!!! thank you for this great article!

  28. Steve Duba said

    Thanks Orrin. Spot on as usual. What is most motivating to me daily, is the fact that we are out there doing what we should be doing anyway. Combined with the greatest minds and the largest group of hungry students on the planet. We as a group of “active citizens” are educating and modeling the correct behavior. God Bless and thank you for your continued modeling.

    This is so true i been visiting the us and Europa since 1998 and everytime i come to the US and sees your TV i get messmorized how brainwashed US people must be to only get 1 side of every story and my best example is how a Politician Dr.Ron Paul is been held away from poles in the news where he clearly hav a lot of votes but is beeing removed!…

    I live in Norway and we are for sure living in changing times

    My estimate is that the 1 of July next year 2016 all US Zitizents with foreign bank accounts with US Dollar in them will be frozen and right there after the US will Devalue or remove the currency totaly. That will be the greates heist in history…. monyvice towards the common man and womman in the US.

  30. Olivier Jean-Baptiste said

    Thanks for your post Orrin…

    Indeed most news broadcasted by the Mass Media is designed to impress upon the people’s mind the “manufactured” world-view of the elites which is a weapon of control. Equally powerful and effective is the entertaining nature of the content of the Mass Media programming which serves as an instrument of diversion.

    I wish to share what the 16th century French writer Étienne de la Boétie said in his book entitled “The Politics of Obedience” on the matter.

    “Plays, farces, spectacles, gladiators, strange beasts, medals, pictures, and other such opiates, these were for ancient peoples the bait toward slavery, the price of their liberty, the instruments of tyranny. By these practices and enticements the ancient dictators so successfully lulled their subjects under the yoke, that the stupefied peoples, fascinated by the pastimes and vain pleasures flashed before their eyes, learned subservience as naively, but not so creditably, as little children learn to read by looking at bright picture books”


    • Orrin Woodward said

      Olivier, Wow! I have heard about this book, but haven’t read it. Now I must read it! 🙂

  31. Elaine Mallios said

    Ok. Now I’m angry. I remember in “Lincoln on Leadership” – he never read the newspapers because they were mostly untrue. Remember “Atlas Shrugged”! How does anybody know who the good guys are anymore? I have been accused of being naive many times and it may be true but my rose colored glasses are definitely cracked. The banks, media, and educational system are all culpable. This brings new meaning for the term “Freedom Fighter”. The good guys are in LIFE Leadership!

  32. Roosevelt Jean-Francois said

    Great post.
    The 3 M (Military, Media, Money) are the Matrix. I put them in this order. Historically, the control started with the use of brute force (the conquerers are owners and the losers are slaves).
    Then, with the revolution of printing, and other media, a lettered minority, the e¨nlightened¨ join forces with the former aristocracy to ensure control and profit.
    Today, with the revolution of information, the elites and middle-class allies manufacture consent through round the clock 24/7 entertainment with vain pleasures flashing before the eyes¨of the masses.
    As an ex-journalist myself working for mainstream haitian media outlets and as a stringer in Haiti for several mainstream medias including, I have an opportunity to see how stories are written in advance with preconceived ideas, and experts`s being quoted with no touch with the reality.
    I am glad to be part of the leadership revolution swimming upstream against the greed and avarice of the elites, the neglect of the middle class, and above all the ignorance of the masses.
    I am proud to be part of this endeavor.
    God bless,

    I think it would be interesting to see this exact same research done within education. I think these same people have seen a much greater success even through their influence in education. As a charter school we review our curriculum regularly to ensure we are providing the best opportunity to learn for our kids. Current grammar books are filled with not only multiple grammar errors, which makes learning and teaching grammar a challenge, but with nonsense information mixed with subtle, seemingly harmless, social issues. The book will be teaching sentence structure, but the example sentence used will have an obvious end in mind.
    There is a book called, “Why Johnny Can’t Tell Right from Wrong” by William Kilpatrick. It was written in 1992. It’s fantastic and well worth the read. The author gives an in depth study on the plight of morals in education and what we can do about it.
    Thank you for the price you pay to learn this and present it to us in a plain, digestible way. You’re awesome! See you next week!

  34. David Cadarette said

    Amazing Orrin!!! It’s like my whole life I’ve been searching for a way to make a difference!!! Thanks brother for shining light into the darkeness and casting aside the shadows so that others may “walk and not grow weary”.

  35. Kirk Birtles said


    Thanks, once again, for your blood, sweat and tears in the pursuit of the truth! Your tens of thousands of hours of reading, study and communication has given you the ability to make what could be ‘very complex’ and make it very simple for the rest of us to understand. Thanks for always being a leader worth following!

    God bless,


  36. Rick Tillmann said

    You state that LIFE Leadership founders believe that everyone is called upon to lead wherever they are. I see you, again, “walking the talk,” not just “talking the talk.” Watching you continue to lead from the front, speaking truth as you learn it, compels me to try and do the same, from where I’m at. Lead on and we will press on…

  37. Sarah Cipillina said

    Wow! This article could have been three separate books! Thanks for fighting the good fight & continual learning Orrin!

  38. Thanks for this truth that so few of us are aware of. Thanks for sounding the wake up call!
