Daniel and I were talking the other day and were discussing subliminal mind control, and we both referenced seeing the same video on YouTube wherein Darren Brown uses subliminal advertising to influence the creative output of a pair of advertising executives. Here is the video:
This was part of a discussion we were having about the significant power of sway that the news, media, and advertising over the minds of the people. There is no doubt that we are evolving in thought, changing, and adapting our outlook on life, our opinions, and how we feel about certain topics as we gather new information from these sources.
Some of the media persuasion is bold and overt, while others are subdued, reduced to slipping past the conscious gatekeeper of the mind in an attempt to communicate an idea or thought subconsciously without being recognized by your rational filters.
Television shows, movies, videos, magazines, and tabloids are in charge of presenting ideas to the masses, to persuade them to accept what is cool, desirable, stupid, rude, or utterly offensive. A general rule of thumb to determine who is behind the core message of the media is to ferret out who is funding the project, or as they say, to follow the money. (Though keep in mind, the actual funding source may be hidden behind many layers of shell corporation. It may take a concerted effort.)
How to Exert Mind Control Over the Masses
1 – Disrupt Normal Thought Process
To sway public opinion, you must present the people with a tragic scenario, left with a tough decision to make.
2 – Present the Desired Response
This would be a hard decision for anyone to make but must be presented as the only reasonable option with the best outcome.
3 – Reinforce the Proposed Solution
Reinforce the scenario by delaying any immediate action. Keep supporting “if this” = “then that” is the best action to take.
4 – Storytelling
Storytelling in different ways helps to reinforce the desired result.
5 – Use Games and Training Exercises
Game playing and running through training exercises also help to establish the ability to make instant decisions and taking actions that would normally be hard to do in real-life scenarios.
We see this in everything from schools and religious orders to military and paramilitary organizations.
6 – Create a Manipulative Event
Governments and political groups have used falsified scenarios that have played out in the media to sway the opinion of the masses. A terrifying case is set up and portrayed in the media to sway public opinion, if it is terrifying enough, the goal is achieved, and support garnered, even if the mind of the people were previously against any sort of thought process. This process is referred to as a “false flag” scenario.
People will change entire belief systems in favor of safety and security.
You may even see such a scenario played out among competing businesses. If one business can create the illusion that the other business is in some way responsible for some horrifying event, the consumer consciousness can be converted to support the competition.
The key is to play out the scenario so effectively that the actual source could never be detected.
7 – Fear
High emotion and fear are the most persuasive tones that breakthrough the rational mind’s defenses. If the negative emotions of the people can be aroused, their minds can be changed and they might even be persuaded to protest or even take action based on the information provided.
This has turned into a hobby for social media persuaders. Using social media platforms, anyone can present any idea that arouses the negative emotions of others and present it as newsworthy truth. If enough people fall for it, their post goes viral. This is their reward. Today it is a common pastime of many a social media user.
Yes, there are “fact-checkers” that can be accessed by social media users, but as you may have guessed, these, too, can be manipulated by those who seek to exert control over the masses.
Thanks to the Internet and instant access to any information available to anyone at any time, the veil between those truly in the know and those who were controlled by media has fallen. This has given way and necessitated those who would like to control the masses by propaganda to flood the Internet with even more misinformation. The idea here is to create instability in the platform (Internet), enough so that it would cause reason to doubt whatever might be found via your favorite search engine, assuming the results were unfiltered.
This brings us to the next method of public mind manipulation, censorship. We are seeing the biggest providers of information obtained by the Internet, mainly Google and Facebook, censoring information to “protect their users.”
You know where that’s leading, right?
What do I think?
I don’t like censorship and I believe that there should be unfiltered access to the Internet. I think that people should be able to filter their own information to suit themselves and take full responsibility for doing so. It appears to me that controlling information to manipulate the thoughts of individuals, all but eliminates individualism.
I make this statement for myself and no one else.
As I caution anyone, even as I share my ideas with you, do not believe me. Get out there. Do your own research and come to your own conclusions.
This is your sacred right. Exercise it
