Prescriptive programming is a term introduced by Kham in a discussion about 9/11 [ab 1]. She stated that the term predictive programming is not accurate to describe the movies, music productions etc. prior to 9/11, which aimed to subliminally prepare the public perception for the upcoming event. These productions do not predict the event, they do actually display essential parts of the script of the event. Kham concludes therefore that these productions prior to the event pre-scribe the narrative, that will be propagandized by the media as the "truth" about the event, namely the script of the psyop.
Not all psyops have such an extended presriptive period as 9/11 and some do not have one at all. In the case of 9/11 the prescriptive programming lasted as long as the buildings themselves. Therefore the influence on the public perception was severe and might be viewed as one of the reasons that allowed the perpetrators to mislead the public. On the other hand, based on the existing material of that prescriptive period, it may become possible one day to draw information about the preparatory period of 9/11 and the involved entities.
In order to control the 9/11 narrative over generations, the perpetrators continue to produce cultural narratives, movies, literature, news and memorials. That is not the case in all events. In the collection below we will therefore differentiate between pre- and post- 9/11 prescriptive productions.
