Get up early North America to listen in. Europe can relax, you don’t have to stay up all night this time. Listener Pierce will tell us all about how he got to where he is. His story and knowledge is much like all of ours, but it’s great to hear a fresh slant on things.

The original goal of Wake up with Ab! was to have regular, real people who are waking up to what’s really going on in the world call in and talk. While others around you may think the stuff you talk about is crazy, our group doesn’t. We’ve all been there, and are still there.

We can’t guarantee real people, but you the good listener can spot a shill I’m sure. I think I can, but it’s not easy!

So if you’re not particularly shilly and want to tell your story, call in or book a show. Skype contact me at ab.irato99

      Pierce, you have a voice made for radio. Well done and thanks for the interview. Now see if you can get a better internet connection!

        Thanks for the flowers Tim.
        Concerning the connection I only see these cut outs happen on Skype, and even then not in all sessions. Annoying nevertheless.

    “Scientific societies are as yet in their infancy. . . . It is to be expected that advances in physiology and psychology will give governments much more control over individual mentality than they now have even in totalitarian countries. Fitche laid it down that education should aim at destroying free will, so that, after pupils have left school, they shall be incapable, throughout the rest of their lives, of thinking or acting otherwise than as their schoolmasters would have wished.”

    “Diet, injections, and injunctions will combine, from a very early age, to produce the sort of character and the sort of beliefs that the authorities consider desirable, and any serious criticism of the powers that be will become psychologically impossible.”

    “Gradually, by selective breeding, the congenital differences between rulers and ruled will increase until they become almost different species. A revolt of the plebs would become as unthinkable as an organized insurrection of sheep against the practice of eating mutton.”

    — Bertrand Russell, “The Impact of Science on Society”, 1953, pg 49-50

    John Swinton, Newspaper editor

    “There is no such thing in America as an independent press, unless it is in the country towns. You know it and I know it. There is not one of you who dare to write his honest opinions, and if you did you know beforehand they would never appear in print. I am paid $150 a week for keeping my honest opinions out of the paper I am connected with. Others of you are paid similar salaries for doing similar things. If I should permit honest opinions to be printed in one issue of my paper, like Othello, before twenty-four hours, my occupation would be gone.

    The business of the New York journalist is to destroy the truth, to lie outright, to pervert, to vilify, to fawn at the feet of Mammon, and to sell his race and his country for his daily bread. You know this and I know it, and what folly is this to be toasting an ‘independent press’! We are the tools and vassals of rich men behind the scenes. We are the jumping-jacks; they pull the strings and we dance. Our talents, our possibilities and our lives are all the property of other men. We are intellectual prostitutes.”

    — John Swinton, New York Times editor, speech to journalists at the Twilight Club in New York City, 1883-04-12

      Herbert G. Wells, Author

      “Modern education began…as the propaganda of the Modern State. It sought to establish a new complete ideology and a new spirit which would induce the individual to devote himself and to shape all his activities to one definite purpose, to the attainment and maintenance of a progressive world-socialism.”

      “Thought and behaviour patterns had to be shaped therefore to subserve this objective, to the relative disregard of any other conceivable purpose. The Modern State became the whole duty of man. This propaganda passed necessarily into a training for public service and a universal public education. …No other type of school and no other system of teaching was tolerated …”

      — H.G. Wells, “The Shape of Things to Come”, 1933
