How Mind Control, Brainwashing and Manipulation Works
It may come as a surprise, but virtually all of us have been under mind control or manipulation at one point or another in our lives. In fact, you may very well be under mind control right now.
The problem with mind control is that it can be hard to discover whether or not you really are being manipulated because your actions that are the result of mind control may be something that is considered perfectly okay and normal for you to do.
Have you ever had a time in your life where you defended an idea so strongly and so hard no matter what people said? An idea where you had a set of pre-programmed responses for counter-arguments against your belief. Perhaps it was something a parent of yours taught you or maybe it was something your country taught you.
Whatever the case, there are times in one's life when they become so stuck on a certain value or idea that they become virtually blinded from reality and un-open to questioning. Even when there are facts and history to show a different way to look at a certain claim it doesn't matter. Once the mind has grasped onto an idea, whether it be favorable or not, it becomes very hard to change this idea. This is a form of mind control and our world is filled with it. All you have to do is look around.
Mind control is much easier to perform on a less thoughtful person. The less thinking a person practices the easier it is to manipulate them.
"Either you think - or else others have to think for you and take power from you, pervert and discipline your natural tastes, civilize and sterilize you."F. Scott Fitzgerald
Since mind control operates entirely on keeping the population as dumb as possible and as machine-like as possible, it is important to create fantasies that will keep the memorized throughout the day to sustain them and keep them from questioning what is really going on. There are many ways in which this is accomplished these days.
Religion is one of the easiest ways to control people. By feeding people answers to things like "what happens when I die", "where did I come from", "why are we here" and other fundamental questions people develop an extremely tight bond with their religion.
Religions work to bring people in and teach them their set of rules that are the guidelines towards life here on Earth. Very rarely will you find a religion that accepts ideas from other religions or promotes their members to explore other religions. You have to ask yourself why.
It is not in the best interest for the religion to actually educate you or look out for you. They are much more content teaching you what they want you to know on a need to know bases, that's it. It is much more beneficial to hide certain things and keep certain pieces of information held back from the general crowd as this allows for a high level of control and allows the religion's agenda to be fulfilled.
"A handful of us determine what will be on the evening news broadcasts, or, for that matter, in the New York Times or Washington Post or Wall Street Journal.... Indeed it is a handful of us with this awesome power....And those [news stories] available to us already have been culled and re-culled by persons far outside our control."Walter Cronkite
And there you have it. The news isn't so much a documentation of reality as it is a highly glorified movie. There is very little difference between going to the movie theaters for 2 hours and watching a new movie and going home for 2 hours and watching the news, except for the fact that the movie is most likely a closer representation to the truth than the news.
The news is filled with deceit, conditioning, propaganda, weak journalism and many elements which have very little value towards actually helping you as a person. Rather than informing you what is really going on around us the news is filled what they want you to believe is going on around us.
Think about it. Pretty much everyone gets their information from the television. It holds the title as being the above all authority on information. Think how easy it would be to disseminate disinformation to this audience if this is the only source they have for information. You have to understand most people want fast and easy. Rather than reading countless books and visiting numerous places to look well into a topic people would much rather catch a glimpse of the news and continue on with the rat race.
At the core, people are biological computers. If you format them with Windows 95 they have less ability, more problems and are not as stable as somebody formatted with Windows XP. The program people run on is the education in which they are taught throughout their life. Since most people don't educate themselves and have a need to be educated by others you have to look at who's doing the education and what they are educating.
If you want to create a person that has very few operations it may be worthwhile to program this person to only know these few operations. Anything that is not necessary for this person can be left out. Why teach the person how to educate itself when that is not what you want?
After generations of manipulation and being dumbing down we are left with a population of people with very little value towards creativity and leadership. Instead we have people who are technical and empty. They only know their one little task that they spend their entire life doing and they never build out other extremely important aspects of a human such as their emotional, physical and spiritual well being. This imbalance leaves people feeling like something is wrong, but not quite knowing what to do to fix it. This is how the game works, and the game will continue to go on.
