Mind Control Theories and Techniques

The Vigilant Citizen has an written an excellent article on the subject mind control, some of the theories behind it and the techniques used to implement it, particularly by the mass media.

In recent months it has begun to dawn on me exactly how important this subject is. When speaking to people about, what can loosely be described as, the New World Order agenda it's been quite shocking to discover their reactions or points of view about certain things. They appear to have swallowed whole much of the propaganda and brainwashing that they've been fed. Of course I can't be too critical because it wasn't so very long ago that I too held views that had been 'shaped' by the purveyors of mind control in the form of our mass media and 'education' system. 

My first step was to realise that there is and has been for a very long time, a concerted effort to shape our perceptions (brainwash us). Once that's done we can begin to see how much of our ideas and points of view have been manipulated to a shocking degree.

It's a long essay so I won't post it in full here but I do recommend reading it if you have the time (or inclination). There are, however, a few choice quotes that I will post in order to tempt you to read it in full.

The first quote is by Aldous Huxley from the preface to his book, 'A Brave New World'.

“Impersonal forces over which we have almost no control seem to be pushing us all in the direction of the Brave New Worldian nightmare; and this impersonal pushing is being consciously accelerated by representatives of commercial and political organizations who have developed a number of new techniques for manipulating, in the interest of some minority, the thoughts and feelings of the masses.”

It has to be remembered that this was written in 1931. The techniques he suggests are being used have been infinitely refined and are now increasingly widespread.

I find direct quotes are both an important insight to the though processes of the elites and a more powerful way of convincing those who doubt that such a thing as conscious manipulation of our thoughts and feelings is taking place.

The quote below by Walter Lippmann, an American intellectual, writer and two-time Pulitzer Prize winner, is particularly enlightening.

“That the manufacture of consent is capable of great refinements no one, I think, denies. The process by which public opinions arise is certainly no less intricate than it has appeared in these pages, and the opportunities for manipulation open to anyone who understands the process are plain enough. . . . as a result of psychological research, coupled with the modern means of communication, the practice of democracy has turned a corner. A revolution is taking place, infinitely more significant than any shifting of economic power. . . . Under the impact of propaganda, not necessarily in the sinister meaning of the word alone, the old constants of our thinking have become variables. It is no longer possible, for example, to believe in the original dogma of democracy; that the knowledge needed for the management of human affairs comes up spontaneously from the human heart. Where we act on that theory we expose ourselves to self-deception, and to forms of persuasion that we cannot verify. It has been demonstrated that we cannot rely upon intuition, conscience, or the accidents of casual opinion if we are to deal with the world beyond our reach.”

Edward Bernays has been described as the 'father of public relations'. In his book 'Propaganda', written in 1928, he said the following:

“The conscious and intelligent manipulation of the organized habits and opinions of the masses is an important element in democratic society. Those who manipulate this unseen mechanism of society constitute an invisible government which is the true ruling power of our country.

We are governed, our minds are molded, our tastes formed, our ideas suggested, largely by men we have never heard of. This is a logical result of the way in which our democratic society is organized. Vast numbers of human beings must cooperate in this manner if they are to live together as a smoothly functioning society.

Our invisible governors are, in many cases, unaware of the identity of their fellow members in the inner cabinet.”

I would suggest that the 'smoothly functioning society' he describes is one that offers the least resistance to the 'invisible government' or the 'true ruling power of our country'.

It was the section of the article that dealt with the idea of 'desensitisation' that I found most concerning. It was the quote by Steven Jacobson, author of 'Mind Control in the United States' that did it.

“The techniques of psychotherapy, widely practiced and accepted as a means of curing psychological disorders, are also methods of controlling people. They can be used systematically to influence attitudes and behavior. Systematic desensitization is a method used to dissolve anxiety so the the patient (public) is no longer troubled by a specific fear, a fear of violence for example. [...] People adapt to frightening situations if they are exposed to them enough”.

That, it appears to me, is what may be happening with the plethora of information regarding the New World Order. Are we being 'desensitised' to the agenda? Is there an attempt to 'mould our minds' to 'global governance'. Anyone above around 40 may scoff at the idea but can anyone doubt that the youth of the world are being 'systematically influenced' in a variety of ways? Not only that they are being being intentionally 'dumbed down' through the (mis)education system, an increasingly inane pop/celebrity culture and such mind numbing things as computer games. I was reminded of an essay on Henry Makow's site by a 22 year old David Richards. He described the average young person as a "strange zombie-like creature" who is apathetic and detached and who has "no awareness of who [they] really are". He adds "without the constant feed of electronic devices, our minds are like television static". Whilst this in no way describes all young people it certainly does for an increasing number.

The solution is pretty straight forward. First is to realise it's happening as already suggested. The next is to stop subjecting yourself to their propaganda and brainwashing as best you can. Switch off the TV, stop buying their newspapers and magazines and be far more critical about all the information you receive. Even within the 'truth movement' there are the agents of the elites peddling their disinformation and misinformation. In short, think for yourself and learn to trust your instincts.
