Modern manipulation differs as much from the old crude advertising as manhandling blocks of stone is different from a machine pouring cement. The modern promoter NEVER dirties his hands with the end result. Your attitudes, whether to pop music, sex discrimination or political ideology, begin with university teachings involving argument between the relative influence of nature and nurture.
A modern government would never say, "The jury system of justice is no good, we are going to change to a system of direct judgments by our appointed judges." Oh NO! Ideologically correct control forbids any such honesty. What liberal governments now do is "bow to public pressure" from people who make up their own minds on the basis of evidence that shows the jury system failing to give justice.
The job of public relations is to create situations that will create news that the news media will publicize so as to create the required emotion, public perception and demand.
This, of course, only happens where the change to be made is important to the plans of the manipulators; issues of less importance are allowed to be resolved free of PR. By only using hidden persuasions in resolution of important issues the chance of exposure is reduced, credibility maintained, and end results attained.
That is how the system works!
Educated people are taught to scorn any idea of "conspiracy". However honest thought shows conspiracy an historic and ever present fact of life. Having gone that far, more honest thought brings us face to face with the fact of human greed for power. We only need look at the clear evidence to see the real world as very different from what we are taught to believe. Or, as Disraeli put it over one hundred years ago, "The world is governed by very different persons from what those believe who are not behind the scenes." Disraeli was in a position to know.
In this book are the essential basics of that reality.
Manipulation of human intelligence for the purpose of mass enslavement is perhaps the most despicable and inhuman abuse of power that one group of humans can practice on another.
Although drugs do help control people there is no need to put something in the water to create a zombie-like enslavement of the mass population. Designed misinformation is safer and gives the tyrant elite a more useful result because it allows the victim a determined pursuit of prosperity that will become the tyrant's reward.
I have mentioned manipulation in numerous earlier writings and beg the patience of my regular readers for the repeat of some quotations.
Here is a repeat of the quote from The Impact of Science on Society by Bertrand Russell. Quote:
It may be hoped that in time anybody will be able to persuade anybody [children] of anything, if he can catch the patient young and is provided by the State with money and equipment. This subject will make great strides when it is taken up by scientists under a scientific dictatorship.
Although this science will be diligently studied, it will be rightly confined to the governing class and the populace will not be allowed to know how its convictions were generated .. education should aim at destroying free will, so that, after pupils have left school, they will be incapable .. of thinking or acting otherwise than their schoolmasters would have wished. End Quote (EQ). Emphasis Added (EA).
People 'think' they are not controlled because "misinformation" does not alter our ability to think, it only alters the result.
The Impact of Science on Society was published in 1976 and that those remarks could be said in a book that would be read within the education system shows the program described was already comfortably operating.
By the time students enter into higher education many are already seeing themselves as elite and enter easily into the spirit of elitism. Encouragement to this viewpoint is part of the trickery. Instead of the gifted and the educated being allowed to see that their gifts and education give them a greater responsibility, they are ego-boosted with ideas of greater importance and authority.
Over recent years parents have been encouraged (and forced by economic pressure) to deliver their children to the system at younger and younger ages. The latest move is baby classes.
In Saving the Future (p44-5) I quoted from a top level multi-function Polis meeting where the following comment was made: ".. it is necessary to control the consciousness of public and [public] related organizations very carefully." EQ.
Here is a fine example quoted by Caldwell & Zanfagna in their book Fluoridation and Truth Decay p8, from writings of Edward L Bernays; quote:
The conscious and intelligent manipulation of the organized habits and opinions of the masses must be done by experts, the public relations counsels (Bernays invented the term); they are the invisible rulers who control the destinies of millions ... the most direct way to reach the herd is through the leaders. ... all this must be planned ... indoctrination must be subtle. It should be worked into the everyday life of the people - 24 hours a day in hundreds of ways ... A redefinition of ethics is necessary ... the subject matter of propaganda need not necessarily be true. EQ. EA.
Bernays could be said to have been the father of modern PR and it is interesting that he advocates control "through the leaders", which adds weight to the earlier quotation from Disraeli to the effect that those normally thought of as leaders are only leaders of the herd not the people in control. We will be looking more closely at Bernays work.
The Humanist Jan/Feb 1983, quote:
The battle for humankind's future must be waged and won in the public school classroom by teachers who correctly perceive their role as the proselytizers of a new faith ... These teachers must embody the same selfless dedication as the most rabid fundamentalist preachers, for they will be ministers of another sort, utilizing the classroom instead of the pulpit to convey humanist values in whatever subjects they teach ... preschool or large state university. EQ.
The continued working of that program is very evident and we will see later that academic 'disciplines' and public money are used to advance this social abuse.
The following quotation is from an address given by Sir Herbert Gepp to the Constitutional Association (30/5/1938) Sydney, Australia.
Emphasizing the duties and responsibilities of youth in a democracy he said; quote:
The so-called mysteries of banking, finance and economics are mysteries only to those who will not take the trouble to try to understand.
I do not suggest it is possible to obtain a complete appreciation of all factors operating in our complex civilization, but I do maintain that the colossal ignorance today of economic fundamentals is the gravest danger to the continuance of democracies. EQ.
The Sydney Sun, next day, devoted its leading article to this warning, these items were published in a booklet called MONEY by Chartered Accountant Stanley Allen F.C.A. Quote:
To the average citizen, economics still remains 'the dismal science', but the speaker was correct in his suggestion that it goes to the root of most of the world's trouble today. It may at least be suspected that a condition of affairs in which men are able and willing to work are unable to find secure jobs, and in which urgent works are delayed because a prosperous community declares that it can raise no money for them, is no advertisement for the knowledge of economics possessed by the community. It may also be suspected that a better knowledge of economics on the part of the leaders might at least mitigate these evils to which democracy at the present moment is prone. EQ.
Such a statement would less likely appear in a leading newspaper today. Years of suppression of the facts of basic economics means even less people know just how fitting that comment is to Australia in 1992.
Search for the forces behind the brainwash of democratic societies leads directly and surely to international banking, however I have covered this subject quite well in a chapter of Saving the Future and will have a little more to say on that subject in a later chapter. There is a vast amount of information available on the money trick so let us keep to the essentials.
The simple fact is that international finance is 'owned' by the most powerful mafia type 'family' in existence and the power of this group is directed through the anti-democratic system of politics known as the 'party system', a system foreign to the constitutions of Great Britain, the USA and Australia.
Some indication of the power of this mafia is shown by the following comment from Lloyd George, famous English statesman and Prime Minister when speaking of peace negotiations following World War I; quote:
They (international bankers) swept statesmen, politicians, jurists, and journalists all on one side, and issued their orders with the imperiousness of absolute monarchs, who knew that there was no appeal from their ruthless decrees. EQ.
The great power of the elitist mafia is maintained through political control and made secure by modern PR. To break this chain we must learn to understand mind-manipulating methods and face the consequences of allowing the power of life or death to reside in a despotic New World Order.
The above might give the impression that manipulation of the public mind is to give all people the same values and opinions. As we shall see, modern manipulation is not so simplistic as that
To understand how present levels of control could be achieved we have to realize that mind manipulation is not a new development. Machiavelli (1469-1527) referred to it when he said; quote:
One of the great secrets of the day is to know how to take possession of popular prejudices and passions in such a way as to introduce a confusion of principles which makes impossible all understanding between those who speak the same language and have the same interests.EQ
That, in a very real way, is our situation today; example: no one, at street level, knows if the 'greenhouse effect' is a very serious problem, a possible problem or a confidence trick, but a lot of people (including 'authorities') have very strong opinions covering each possibility.
In our society there are factions pulling in all directions but very few understand, want to know about, or are prepared to expose the illegitimacy of political party government; yet it should be easy to see that so long as political parties are allowed to control government we can never have democracy.
All through history, at some level, there has been deliberate public enslavement by lies. Jesus referred to it when He told His listeners they were slaves (John 8:34); then, as today, they denied it. But the history of enslavement by deliberate deceit goes much further back. Let me repeat a quote used in How to Avoid the Looming Catastrophe, p26; this is from Indian Philosophy, by Radhakrishnan; quote:
One of the leading principles of the mystics was the sacredness and secrecy of self-knowledge and the true knowledge of the gods. This wisdom was, they thought, unfit for, perhaps even dangerous to, the ordinary human mind; or in any case liable to perversion and misuse, and loss of virtue if revealed to the vulgar and unpurified spirits. Hence they favoured the existence of an outer worship, effective but imperfect, for the profane. EQ
A return to 'New Age' eastern Philosophy is really part of a return to 'dark age' mysticism, but that is only one area of religion "effective but imperfect, for the profane", the main area of such religion today is called "political ideology".
Apart from the above broad outline, how is our consciousness of human reality being restricted?
There are three common ways of restricting human consciousness: one is to restrict access to knowledge; another is to introduce false ideas (including religious ideologies) to create confusion; a third is to create conflict. All are achieved by education and lies.
The Hegelian Dialectic Process is a system in which designed social conflict is used to create a desired social change.(See bb970217.htm "Hegelian Dialectics and Conspiracy").
To appreciate this we go first to the principle revealed by George Orwell, "He who controls the past controls the future". As social attitudes are based on the experiences of the past it is therefore possible, by manipulation of belief about past events, to influence future behaviour.
This leads directly to the complementary idea, Conflict Creates History, which is the short explanation of the method and purpose of the Heglian Dialectic Process.
From the axiom, Conflict Creates History, we get to appreciate the idea of using controlled conflict to create any desired 'history' for control of future generations. The Hegelian expression of this concept is thesis, antithesis, synthesis; where thesis is the manipulation to generate conflict, antithesis is the generated counter-force of conflict, and synthesis is the desired result; example:
A politician is enticed to challenge for leadership (thesis); other leading figures are encouraged to resist the challenge (antithesis); the conflict brings the party into disrepute and the opposition is elected (synthesis). Of course, the division of the nation into two balanced political factions represents a more important example whose synthesis is control of the nation and of the reins to manipulate its people.
Change is achieved, you understand, by instilling false hopes, beliefs and fears so as to create unnatural and deformed social responses.
A further development is to "institutionalize" gains made so that they become permanent. The best way to do this is to restrict reading ability and vocabulary (addressed in a later chapter).
A problem with a book of this kind, where we need to keep it as short and simple as will cover the subject, is that whenever we want to deal with the problem of cultural manipulation we are led directly to the party political system.
Furthermore, we cannot say much that is meaningful about the political party system without reference to those who control that system - the money manipulators.
To see how all this manipulation can be possible we must now look at the forces behind social corruption. brain2.htm
