    Gallup , Propaganda Institute?

    Guys, I see it is a matter-of-fact that there are discussions here regarding various Gallup Polls.

    WHO IS THIS MAGIC GALLUP?

    Clearly, it is part of mass media propaganda machine.

    According to their own timeline:

    Following Dr. Gallup's death in 1984, a number of Fortune 500 companies explored the possibility of acquiring Gallup.

    In October 1988, James Clifton of Selection Research, Incorporated (SRI) in Lincoln, Nebraska, led what many considered to be the improbable acquisition of Gallup by the employee-owned SRI. The merger occurred after four years of almost daily negotiations between Clifton and Gallup's vice-chairman, Alec Gallup.

    Clifton was named CEO, and the new leadership team would embark on what would become a historic course. Over the next decade, the company grew tenfold in business volume, while expanding into 20 foreign countries.

    This above resembles a classic pattern of it being bought out by an alphabet agency or some banksters. Who controls Gallup?

    People who cannot think on their own depends on others to do it for them.....use your own brain to judge what is true and what is not and use the info of others only as a reference and not as the Bible of what is going on.

    I dont think it matters in the slightest who owns or runs Gallop, and here's why:

    The 'Majority' has NEVER pushed humanity in the moral direction. The 'Majority' has NEVER put an end to injustice, suffering, violence or oppression. The 'Majority' has NEVER taken a stand against the corruption and despotism that surrounds them.

    The 'Majority' are ALWAYS lead by their noses by the plutocrats/elite, who are by definition another 'minority'. The eternal battle for individual liberty has been fought between 2 minority groups, while the 'Majority' of people cheer on the State and its policies in its attempt to crush the 'minority' and its resistance.

    History proves that it is ALWAYS a small minority of people who are willing to stand up and claim what is morally right, and who are willing to die for it.

    Forget the 'Majority', they are spinless jellyfish who have never done anything remotely important when it comes to individual liberty.

    Good points and good quotes.


    What about Gallup, though?

    How come every time there's a propaganda need , such as a specific "pool result" to be shown, they are eagerly there? Who's behind it, some special ops?

    I don't see polls talked about here much at all FE. Hell, we don't post many "poll threads".

    Gallup = Controlled. Just like every other polling service that is touted by the talking heads.

    Lies, Damned Lies, and Statistics.
