The Invictus Games – Emotionalised Empowerment Housed In Yellow (& Black) Heroism
“The best propaganda is that which, as it were, works invisibly, penetrates the whole of life without the public having any knowledge of the propagandistic initiative”. ~ Joseph Goebbels
The Invictus Games came into being in 2014 (the same year Manchester had a local-authority led renaissance ‘Bee’ rebrand; an obscure part of the city’s history that was brought back to life) but I can’t help but think of who really benefits?
Sure the athletes who take part but what of those hundreds and thousands of more that aren’t capable? Does the viewing audience think about them? The invisible, limbless men too battlefield broken in body and mind to compete?
So instead of being the one in however many hundreds equipped with the potential to wrap themselves in the Union Flag on a TV platform podium, they have to wrap themselves in a sleeping bag beneath an underpass and beg strangers; members of the public or a DWP/ATOS bureaucrats for sustenance and shelter.
The people who truly, keep cyclically-perpetually gaining through all of these patriotic displays of these #Emotionalism4Militarism initiatives are the all-powerful Machiavellian British aristocratic establishment elite to;
#Emotionalise #Irrationalise #Patriotise #Weaponise #Militarise #Mobilise and Live, Die & Repeat.
Their prestigiously-led Invictus Games is a UK ‘Corpolitique’ propaganda monstrosity selling ‘emotionalised-empowerment’ saturated in yellow-striped branding, amplified by black.
Why? Subliminal-subconscious emotionalised-empowerment is my guess, as it’s found across all elements of ‘military-TV-sport’…
It’s a similar yellow and striped saturation we see on our rolling TV news whenever there is a terrorist attack or a national tragedy like Grenfell; with the vibrant yellow uniforms of lionised “heroism” and “bravery” of the Emergency and Security Services who have repeatedly “ran towards the danger” since the first day of Basic Training for the masses.
The colourful-commentary of which, in the immediate aftermath of the Westminster Bridge attack, was reinforced by Quentin Letts as he spoke within the TV screen confines of Sky’s Breaking News – also bathed in vibrant yellow and black branding.
“We saw a thick set man in black clothes come through the gates into the New Palace Yard, just below Big Ben. This man had something in his hand; it looked like a stick of some sort. He was challenged by a couple of policemen in yellow jackets. And one of the yellow jacketed policemen fell down. And we could see the man in black moving his arm in a way that suggested he was either stabbing or striking the yellow jacketed policeman”. – Quentin Letts on Sky News.
It’s almost as if they’re trying to get us to subconsciously associate the colour ‘yellow’ with #Emotionalism4Militarism as they clearly are doing with the pervasively-consciously audible and visible viewing pleasure of all things ‘British’ augmented by the ubiquitous product placement of the Union Flag – which has even been extended to ‘food produce propaganda’.
But unlike the consciously-visible Union Flag, this vibrantly-invisible, yellow-subliminal connotation-association seems to have become a ‘coincidental-colour’ as if by untold, untaught false-flag chance happening.
Another chance-trend of vibrantly-yellow ‘emotionalised-empowerment’, just as coincidentally – also happens to be the second and third choice colour of many a preadolescent boys’ and adolescent teens football and rugby strips – many with stripes – and of course, is the same vibrant yellow branding of the BBC’s Sport…
