This process is known as
AUTOPOIESIS which just means "self-production."
The National inSecurity State's Operation Mockingbird sysem of CIA media is an institutionalization of government autopoiesis.
That stupid movie, 'Krippendorf's Tribe,' was a negative framing of the real Klaus Krippendorf who has been a big academic name in content analysis, cybernetics theory and linguistics, all of which are tools of scientific fascism.
Krippendorf wrote a 1995 paper about how Power uses language called 'Undoing Power.'
Our experiment demonstrates that languaging -- the process of people co-ordinating their voicing and listening, their writing and reading, their feelings and doings and their being-with each other -- virtually "says" things into being, "brings forth" ways of seeing.
Languaging is a social process in which we jointly construct realities for each of us to see, occupy and to talk into. Evidently, languaging can open our "eyes" to alternative ways of seeing and create new ways of being-with Others. Talking or writing of power is just one example which we shall now explore.
This 'Undoing Power' paper is probably what provoked the 1998 Richard Dreyfuss movie dissing Krippendorf.
This awareness of the power of nuts and bolts language, of citizen power to shape the world by realizing language control IS mind control...this is not what Power wants us to know about just before a big increase in oil warring.
Krippendorf wrote about how we are conditioned to perceive things Power's way.
Power tries to control the definitions of important words.
This is what I've been pointing at here at RI and which Jeff is now trying to weed out of discussions as 'mere keyword hijacking.'
Cybernetics is an excellent model for understanding linguistics and social control, especially now that the internet plays a big part in this.
Power uses media (language) to make people do what they're supposed to do, a model of autopoiesis. Since WWII it has been the job of military-intelligence to covertly control civilian populations using language in media psy-ops to create social cohesion and warriors.

the process whereby an organization produces itself.
An autopoietic organization is an autonomous and self-maintaining unity which contains component-producing processes. The components, through their interaction, generate recursively the same network of processes which produced them.
An autopoietic system is operationally closed and structurally state determined with no apparent inputs and outputs. A cell, an organism, and perhaps a corporation are examples of autopoietic systems. See allopoiesis. (F. Varela) Literally, self-production.
The property of systems whose components
(1) participate recursively in the same network of productions that produced them, and
(2) realize the network of productions as a unity in the space in which the components exist (after Varela) (see recursion).
Autopoiesis is a process whereby a system produces its own organization and maintains and constitutes itself in a space. E.g., a biological cell, a living organism and to some extent a corporation and a society as a whole. (krippendorff)
