For readers of this blog who may not be familiar with New Dawn magazine, below is the complete description of the publication and its purpose, found in the "Mission Statement" at the very beginning of the latest issue:

The first issue of New Dawn magazine appeared in May 1991 in Melbourne, Australia. From humble beginnings, New Dawn has grown into a unique 80 page bi-monthly publication distributed nationwide throughout Australia and New Zealand, with a growing international readership.
New Dawn magazine explores ancient wisdom and new thinking while encouraging greater awareness and open-mindedness. Each issue examines the hidden dimensions of society, culture, history, religion and current events in a non-dogmatic manner.
From lost civilisations and ancient knowledge, to secret societies and higher states of consciousness, New Dawn is a fascinating blend of cutting-edge articles on unexplained and behind-the-scenes events.
New Dawn is not about telling you what to believe, but is a forum where diverse ideas and creative thought is presented for our reader's consideration, inspiration and empowerment.
Today all mainstream media outlets propagate the consensus reality. Every child is born into a crowd that is already conditioned, the teachers are conditioned, the neighbours are conditioned, and the whole community is conditioned. Born into such an environment the child cannot envisage any other alternative. Awareness is sacrificed to conformity. Existence becomes a trap, a cog in the wheel of the great machine of modern society. William Blake described that machine as a 'Dark Satanic Mill.' Philip K. Dick identified it as the Empire's 'Black Iron Prison.' "It is possible to get out of a trap," wrote Dr. Wilhelm Reich. "However, in order to break out of prison, one must first confess to living in a prison."
It has been observed that there are two ways of looking at the world. You can take the morning newspaper or nightly news at face value and believe everything you're told by the establishment media and those in 'positions-of-authority.' Or you can begin to question this mass hypnosis and awake to new perspectives and possibilities. New Dawn is a doorway to this new way of thinking and seeing the world.
Since 2004 New Dawn has also published Special Issues devoted to ancient mysteries and the unexplained. These Special Issues, now published every two moths, are a thought-provoking and highly readable examination of the greatest mysteries of the past, the present, and the future.
Thank you for reading New Dawn. We're sure you will find this magazine insightful, enlightening and absolutely unique. 
Enjoy the journey of discovery.

"Art is individualism, and individualism is a disturbing and disintegrating force.

There lies its immense value. For what it seeks to disturb is monotony

of type, slavery of custom, tyranny of habit, and the

reduction of man to the level of a machine."

-- Oscar Wilde (1854 - 1900), Irish writer & poet

Those who find that mission statement, and the existence of a major publication which devotes itself to such ends, to be commendable might consider supporting New Dawn through the purchase of individual issues in electronic or print format, or through a subscription to either the electronic or print edition. 

They did not ask me to say any such thing, but I personally believe that the existence of forums such as New Dawn in which writers and researchers and readers can explore perspectives which challenge the conditioning of the "Black Iron Prison" are absolutely essential, all the more so because many of the conventional media platforms are now completely dedicated to the "conditioning" described above, rather than to challenging that conditioning. 

As an example of the degree to which challenges to that conditioning are generally deemed unacceptable, even in forums which paint themselves as "a community of curious souls to engage with ideas and each other," see my post from this past September entitled "Graham Hancock identifies war on consciousness: TED confirms that he's right." Many other such examples could be piled up, one atop another. There truly is a "war on consciousness" in the words of Graham Hancock, and indeed it is a war of ideas and a war of information and a war of language (and, quite often, a war of dogma). 

Publications such as New Dawn which are dedicated to examining "society, culture, history, religion and current events in a non-dogmatic manner" and to "encouraging greater awareness and open-mindedness" with the end result of the individual's "inspiration and empowerment" can almost certainly be counted on the side of "consciousness" in the war that Graham Hancock has identified.

You can purchase electronic editions of past issues going all the way back to 2005 in their back-issue archive here (at a very reasonable price), as well as read some of the articles from those back-issues for free online in the same archive. 

This particular issue revolves around the subject of "mind control" -- an extremely important subject, and one that has been discussed in the pages of this blog many times before. Below is a collection of some of those. I hope that regular readers who may not have heard of New Dawn previously will check it out, and that first-time visitors from New Dawn will enjoy exploring the deep archive of previous posts that are available here, and will come back regularly to check out future posts as they appear!
