Former managing director and member of the board of directors of Wall Street investment firm Dillon, Read & Co, as well as former Assistant Secretary of Housing and Federal Housing Commissioner in the Dept. of H.U.D. during the Bush 41 administration, Catherine Austin Fitts relays a chilling conversation she overheard circa 1984 while working on Wall Street, where executives discussed how subliminals and entrainment technology was about to be deployed through the television waves.
Fitts, who now publishes Solari.com and gives personal investment advice, said she was so frightened by hearing a conversation she was never authorized to hear, that she threw out her TV for good.
But Catherine Austin Fitts further warns that the television is not the only media devices that uses these techniques — and by now, surely more advanced techniques — to persuade consumers, quell opposition and encourage the status quo. Other media devices are also “compromised,” Fitts says, so users should be aware of its affects on cell phones, radios, the Internet. Financial firms, for instance, often use these technologies to aid in persuasion and sales marketing to help put the customer in a particular mode.
