And "Greer" is supposed to remind him of JFK limo driver William Greer (how he knows about the driver is unclear) and he ties the two together in his mind, and now thinks of Greer the driver (and Greer's beliefs about the assassination, which Joe also knows in detail somehow) the driver as a kook. Which strengths Joe's belief in the Warren Commission's official story and makes him less likely to think there was a conspiracy. Is that it?
Or is Joe supposed to read about Steven Greer and thinks he's nuts and then in the future (next week, 5 years, 15 years?), when he hears the name William Greer, he will think back to what he read/heard for 45 seconds one day in 2011 and associate the two and thus dismiss whatever he is told about William Greer? Is that it?
Just about. Inoculation doesn't require the expectation of exposure, just the statistical possibility of it, scaled up to an entire population, where a certain percentage of potential troublemakers may become exposed to some given lynchpin of some cover-up which, if exposed more widely, could jeopardize other, larger cover-ups, or entire state-sanctioned or state-operated criminal organizations.
The information is already out in the open, but nobody's clamoring to have it covered on CNN, forcing the Times to write about it because it'll sell papers, or calling up their pesky congresscritters about it. Like most memes, it hasn't hit that kind of critical mass.
But it can, and they know it. Enter Hugh's summer reading list. It turns out that, in addition to extreme/complete individualized mind control, the military and intelligence establishment have mature science (and the proven field application thereof) on low-grade, wide-scale, essentially subliminal mindfuckery which amounts to cognitive sleight-of-hand played en masse. Everybody plays word games with people to manipulate their actions (see sales and marketing, marriage, parenting
), but the weaponized version of this is even more subtle.
To use an example I've used here before, if I bring up crop circles in conversation with someone who doesn't study them, I am likely to watch my fellow conversant immediately and automatically respond to this idea with something to the effect of, "Oh, I thought that just turned out to be a couple of dudes with ropes and planks."
You see what happened there? One story in one news cycle with video of two dudes making a circle with ropes and planks admitting in an interview to being responsible for all of England's crop circle phenomenon just for a good laugh, and now everybody in the world who doesn't
know shit about the subject won't
learn shit about the subject, because they've experienced proximity contamination
which biased them to a dismissive pre-judgement which would preempt any thought of personal inquiry into the subject, and/or inoculate
them against a mind-virus so destructive to the status quo, or the long-term plans of human monsters with money.
Now, I'm not saying there's a crop circle cover-up, but there are plenty of examples of grade-A certified cover-ups I could have used instead, so just suppose there were. Let's say crop circles were the byproduct of an exotic weapons system or trans-whatever gateway TPTB don't want us to know they have, or that they don't want the peaceful, environmental warnings encoded in some of the more esoteric crop formations in recent years to become widely known (to the point of hitting critical mass), then all they have to do is release a Doug & Dave story to head off any casual inquiries at the pass, before that critical mass becomes curious enough to look into it, or prevent them from being swayed by any casual inquiry should they make it, thus deterring all but a tiny fraction of a fraction of a fraction of a fraction of a fraction of people that might be at risk of radicalizing into action over it should they become sufficiently informed.
Now think 9/11. Examples abound. And that's just the news media. But it's a concise example of inoculation theory in practice.
I personally think pro-establishment, pro-capitalism, pro-imperialism, pro-exceptionalism, pro-official-conspiracy, anti-everything-else-at-every-level-of-detail-ism is intentionally woven into the Hollywood film development cycle by a small peppering of thoroughly-compensated agents scattered throughout the studio system who subtly manipulate the plotlines, dialogue, casting, locations, marketing and theatrical release scheduling in a manner similar to the CIA's well-known editorial influence over major newspapers, TV and online news media, or the "invisible hand of the market" coming up with Crowleyan-symbolic closing numbers for various financial markets as discussed elsewhere recently, or to the deeply-symbolic naming, mission patch design, timing, planning and scheduling and execution of a variety of manned and unmanned NASA missions since its inception by what would appear to be some radical subset of Egypto-sumerian-worshipping Masons and OTO-ish occultists.
Note that I didn't say "all", in any case. Not every movie, not every news story, not every trading day, and not every NASA mission or maneuver has been manipulated to suit an elite minority (be that psyops or occult religious invocation), but it damn sure seems like most of them are.
