mind control

“Who are the men who without our realizing it, give us our ideas, tell us whom to admire and whom to despise, what to believe about the ownership of public utilities, about the tariff, about the price of rubber, about the Dawes Plan, about immigration; who tell us how our houses should be designed, what furniture we should put in them, what menus we should serve on our table, what kind of shirts we must wear, what sports we should indulge in, what plays we should see, what charities we should support, what pictures we should admire, what slang we should affect, what jokes we should laugh at?” ~ Edward Bernays, Propaganda

Authored by Edward Bernays and published in 1928, the book Propaganda still holds its position as the gold standard for influencing and manipulating public behavior. Drawing on his expertise in psychology while using the language of manipulation, Bernays pioneered social engineering via mass media, and his work lives on in the distorted, statist, consumer world we have today.

But who are the ones behind the curtain telling us what to think by directing our attention onto the things which serve interests?

Interestingly, chapter III of Propaganda is titled, ‘The New Propagandists, and is devoted to explaining why the controls for mass manipulation are so closely guarded by a relatively tiny elite who sit in the shadows, out of the public eye, choosing what we are to see and to think, even controlling the politicians we elect to represent us.

If we set out to make a list of the men and women who, because of their position in public life, might fairly be called the molders of public opinion we could quickly arrive at an extended list of persons mentioned in “Who’s Who…”

Such a list would comprise several thousand persons. But it is well known that many of these leaders are themselves led, sometimes by persons whose names are known to few.

Such persons typify in the public mind the type of ruler associated with the phrase invisible government.

An invisible government of corporate titans and behind the scenes influencers who’s mark on culture cannot be understated today. Bernays continues:

The invisible government tends to be concentrated in the hands of the few because of the expense of manipulating the social machinery which controls the opinions and habits of the masses.

The public relations counsel, then, is the agent who, working with modern media communication and the group formation of society, brings an idea to the consciousness of the public. But he is a great deal more than that. He is concerned with courses of action, doctrines, systems and opinions, and the securing of public support for them.

Ultimately, the goal of this type of mass-produced, pop-culture propaganda is to weaken the individual’s ability to think critically, thereby creating an environment where many people look to one another for approval, always second-guessing their own faculties. When this happens, the strength of the collective group begins to take form and multiply, and ideas can be implanted into the popular culture, taking root in the form of widespread conformist behavior.

“Thinking critically means making reasoned judgments that are logical and well thought out. It is a way of thinking in which one doesn’t simply accept all arguments and conclusions to which one is exposed without questioning the arguments and conclusions. It requires curiosity, skepticism and humility. People who use critical thinking are the ones who say things such as, “How do you know that?” “Is this conclusion based on evidence or gut feelings?” and “Are there alternative possibilities when given new pieces of information?””  [Source]

Final Thoughts

The takeaway here is that not much has changed in 100 years of corporate/statist American culture, other than the technical capacity to scale this ever upward. Our lives are still heavily influenced by the likes of the described by Bernays. There is one advantage we do have now, however, as technology has given us greater access to the truth and we are now free to split from the matrix psychologically by understanding what it is and how it influences our lives. If we choose to do so, that is, if we choose to take the red pill.

In order to understand your life and your mission here on earth in the short time you have, it is imperative to learn to see the thought prison that has been built around you, and to actively circumnavigate it. Free-thinking is being stamped out by the propagandists, but our human tendency is to crave freedom, and with the aid of truth, we are more powerful than the control matrix and the invisible government.

    Freud said your neighbor doesn’t want to love you – he wants to take what is yours and eviscerate you…he knew what he was talking about… he was a Jew

    • Roy Hobs

      I think about all the numbskulls in various comment sections who call us crazy for pointing people to the “historical” issue — the jewish Question. But yet it seems our own people can’t see the most obvious. Peace to you darkhorse.

      • darkhorse

        Thanks Roy…you also! There are some who see clearly and have no trouble discerning the Truth…it’s harder for them to be surrounded by the soul-challenged but there must be a reason for this – maybe God lets the few see, hear and know the Truth while He allows the masses to wallow in their own filth…

        • Roy Hobs

          Agreed. So please to hear your eyes have been opened. 🙂

          • darkhorse

            been opened for years…

          • Roy Hobs

            Pre 9-11?

          • darkhorse

            no…. have always hated politics and avoided it at all costs… began coming out of my fugue state while watching the news one day on a G20 meeting – people were walking up a mountain to protest it – all ages… college kids, middle aged, older … my gut kicked and told my brain that something was going on here that I knew nothing about and that it was time I put my Nancy Drew cap on…. never looked back!

          • They tried to ban my pythons using fake science which pissed me off so I started researching corruption and the like and the rabbit hole just kept going and going…

          • darkhorse

            you mean real – snake – pythons???

          • Yep – reticulated pythons, the longest snakes in the world. Very smart and quite dangerous but they are my favorite ever since I started working with them. My largest is probably close to 60lbs and 12+ft, lol, and the other one will be a little bigger when he grows up. I don’t own any giant snakes, though. I don’t have the means for that, they get over 25 ft and can weigh over 300lbs! That’s work!

            They used fake global warming projection maps and said the whole US is going to be overrun with exotic snakes so they passed these bullshit laws that are designed to kill the reptile business, the true target, which is a successful industry of small business owners by making it against Federal law to transport/sell certain snake breeds over state lines. I think they are finally going to be repealed but they are still on the books right now.

            It was a buy-a-law deal by HSUS, a scumbag organization that fronts like it does good in the world but shovels money into off-shore bank accounts and doesn’t want any animal/human interaction in the world – no pets.

          • darkhorse

            WHAT???? No PETS?? Wait a minute..who exactly are these freaks of nature?

          • This POS:×224/people/wayne-pacelle.jpg – They are radical vegans that pretend like they care for animals but actually want nothing to do with animals. They are against livestock farming in all forms as well as all pet ownership but they take people’s money making it seem like it will be going to shelter initiatives when only a very tiny portion actually ever does, most of the money gets spent in Washington lobbying for laws to support their agenda, not to help abused animals in bad situations like their commercials say.

            There’s actually a website that documents their crimes: – total scum! Soo many animals could be helped with the money they are squandering for their own initiatives and offshore bank accounts from well meaning, naive people who send them money thinking they just did this great deed for animals. They used some of that money to pay off crooked scientists to create the fake science that got a real federal law passed!

          • darkhorse

            Oh…those incessant commercials! Fake as they come! All the $$$ spent on each commercial is insane…you know any $$ people send in is NEVER going to the animals!! Same as the ones where the kids have cancer and other horrible diseases… I hate these turds…when will they take a flying leap into Hell?

          • Hopefully when we help give them a real big push, lol

          • darkhorse

            I KNEW all that $$$ was going into THEIR private bank accounts and not to the animals…how could anyone miss it? Notice hoe the kids/animals commercials ask for $19.00/month??

          • Yup, they give them a free calendar and some other tchotchkes that make simple people feel better about themselves, not realizing that, that is a red flag for a charity scam.

          • darkhorse

            why can’t they see this…it’s so obvious?

          • People don’t think anymore. It’s a tidal wave of anti-intellectualism out there. They got taken by the sad music and images of suffering animals when they would do much better for animals by sending that money to their local no kill shelter or even better, donating some of their time.

          • darkhorse

            great idea you have! You know, last night I noticed the animal commercial had background music playing …”Silent Night” !! probably Sarah McGloughlin singing…notice how they use the birth of Jesus to play on people’s emotions? Whoever is responsible should be jailed…and how come that CEO isn’t in jail since people know what he’s doing with the $$$? Only donates 1% of ALL THE MONEY!! How is he still walking around a free man?

          • Normal, unaware people are just fodder for the psychopaths. When they incorporate religion to make extra sales that makes them even worse.

          • darkhorse

            and the idiots don’t even realize it…how could they? They never look up and see the chemtrails..oh, I mean THE CONTRAILS!!! Mention what they really are and they start smirking at you…. pathetic?

          • They have treaties and laws governing the use of that technology while at the same time they deny it exists, lol. In the UK you can pay for nice weather on your wedding day for $150k in our money. Weather modification doesn’t exist, though… right.

          • darkhorse

            as long as the People allow it…. a handful of awake citizens can’t muster the necessary power to dismantle an evil government….

    • Wally

      Look how many of them are in our government. No wonder Israel is always first before America.

      • darkhorse

        yup, because this is the United States of Israel!

      • The only time you’ll ever see congress unanimously approve anything in a bipartisan manner it is to directly benefit Israel.

        • darkhorse

          GREAT POINT, JOLLY!!

    • Freud’s theories were developed as a result of sessions with Viennese Jews so to apply them to all of humanity is ridiculous.

      • darkhorse

        and don’t forget what Freud himself was…

    • Lunarcus Moonbatticus

      Madeleine McCann disappeared when the Podesta Bros. were visiting Sigmund Freud’s grandson in the same locale as the disappearance.
      It’s all on-line!
      Travel movements are all documented, but the cops won’t act on the info…

      • darkhorse

        you know, I remember seeing something about this–esp with the Podesta Bros. – is it the Freud who is an artist? Cops do nothing, hmmm… guess we know why… God help that child if she’s still alive.

  • Lunarcus Moonbatticus

    With the epitome of that being the Universities on the Left Coast and the North East…!
    Start reading the works of Jordan Maxwell, David Icke, Mark Passio and Mike Tsarion!
    Then, go and attend a ‘Free Your Mind’ Convention.
    From there, after educating yourselves, you’ll be able to avoid the Matrix of Mind Control, and make rational planning decisions for the future.
