How To Scare A Country Into Submission

Updated on July 17, 2012


This first started as pretty unorganized thoughts as I sat in a dingy, crowded subway car in Toronto. It had been for a number of years that I was aware something was not quite right. Perhaps that was why I always was a bit of an outsider; quite friendly, outgoing and extroverted, but rather than fill my mind with trivial matters, I always knew in the back of my mind that there was something not genuine with what went on around. I attribute it to the fact that I was somewhat isolated from the media and pressures of other young children that I could keep my mind clear; granted, that did not mean I had been exposed to it. There were many years that I fully immersed myself into the Fake World, but luckily could always go back up for air.
This article first started as a number of ramblings, thoughts and observations, but for ease of reading I have edited it to something more comprehensible, but some of it is still choppy.

"The dissenter is every human being at those moments in his life when he resigns momentarily from the herd and thinks for himself."

-Archibald Macleish (1892-1982)

When Did We Start Getting Lied To?

People started to get lied to when they lost the knowledge of the worth of their possessions, and the things they were buying. At one point, a person knew that if I wanted an apple, I gave them grain of the same amount. The start of "Supply & Demand". The start of greed, people within their own tribes could benefit from their own tribe by making them poorer. No longer was all resources made available equally to those who owned it. Perhaps even before the start of paper money.
People were making patents and hiding ingredients. They called them tinkerers, the merchant in pioneer times selling wares like hair tonic, secret recipes, etc. Then they could sell the apple for twice the amount as before. Pushed on as the beginning of progress, we can also call it the maturation of greed in its higher evolved form. This wasn't something as simple as bandits stealing grain from farmers. This was stealing from people that which they did not even possess yet. It started slowly but thus began the era of not being able to buy something with something tangible. It would evolve from bank notes, to War Bonds, to the stock market and RRSPs. Loans for amounts of money that would take years for someone to pay off. Back in the day, when you owed someone a large amount you became their slave. You would work their land or in their property until it was deemed you fulfilled the amount that you owed. In this time, it is loans that continue this tradition. Loans for large amounts of money. However, most are raised to believe that if you worked everyday you would pay it off. So how to keep people in this owing state? Someone invented interest, and the rest is history.

"We do know this, however. A clique of American financiers not only helped establish Communism in Russia, but has striven mightily ever since to keep it alive. Ever since 1918 this clique has been engaged in transferring money and, probably more important, technical information, to the Soviet Union. This is made abundantly clear in the three volume history Western Technology and Soviet Economic Development by scholar Antony Sutton of Stanford University's Hoover Institution on War, Revolution and Peace. Using, for the most part, official State Department documents, Sutton shows conclusively that virtually everything the Soviets possess has been acquired from the West. It is not much of an exaggeration to say that the U.S.S.R. was made in the U.S.A. The landscape painters, unable to refute Sutton's monumental scholarship, simply paint him out of the picture".


Everything Happens For A Reason

When did that happen? When did we rely more on the intangible? When did corporations gain increasing levels of power? When was it that we weren’t able to truly own land property and when were rights slowly taken away?
The world wars were earth-changing. What happened during then changed life for Western society and consequently the rest of the world. When there is war, most people can be persuaded into giving up more of their rights, money, and property. I wonder how much money was used to buy War Bonds. Perhaps just as much that was pumped into the Cold War. Sounded like a Bond-farming tactic to me. Proscription happened; being forced to serve something intangible as a ‘country’. It brought new meaning to nationalism. It birthed philosophers who thought against the ideals of freedom, liberty and private property. People were no longer individuals to the ‘higher’ levels of society and to those who were rich and powerful. They may have started like us, but they decided that the rest of the world was not entitled to wealth earned through our labour, unlike those who wrote the constitution. The writers of the constitution knew what would happen if a few were in power like the countries from whence they had come; England.

Mandatory Vaccination And Forced Microchipping

From Initialization To Realization

What happened during the 50s? Modern technology advances. Slowly the idea of working desk jobs was more appealing. The wars previous showed the leaders of the country that we could be made to work long hours just as those forced to work in England's Industrial slaves in robots. Robots wouldn't protest against the loss of their rights and freedoms. We are now all slaves to bankers, but the slow transition to complete control takes time. It is still happening right this moment however.

Examples of this going on now? Just look around you with clear vision and you will see it happen all the time. Why do you think there is war in the Middle East? Why does the media want to scare you into thinking that even your neighbours are possible terrorists? That is because they want to install the x ray machines in the airports, they want to have the right to arrest you without trial if they think you're a terrorist. There have already been talks of patrol drones to scan neighbourhoods, and microchipping citizens.
When did modern thinking originate? What is it? A mix of oligarchy, socialism with the facade of capitalism. Tell people about the worst side of Capitalism to show people it was ‘evil’...then perhaps they can later be swayed into giving away their possessions in the name of extreme 'fairness' when it is really being given to the handful of bankers who sit on top of the mountain. Politicians are now actors who wear masks and show the public what they want to know but at the same telling them what it is that they want.

Taking The "Human" Out Of Humankind

There is no denying the fascination with electronics and technology, and they can and should be used just as the stick and stone was for the first humans, as tools, however media is saturated with the melding of technology and biology in the promotion of the robot. Robots are given emotions in movies like Wall-E, music with Autotune, countless music videos, and many video games. Oftentimes, it is the robot who seems to possess more human qualities, whereas people are made to be progressively more and more robotic....and it's thought as being cool.

It is this method that people will soon come to accept, perhaps even willingly, the insertion of things like microchips in their body, or a cat-sized drone patrolling their neighbourhood. Then the masses are more easily kept track of, not only because their personal information are kept in sites such as Facebook, but your electronics such as cellphones.

Scare Tactic Checklist

1 Make an enemy. Like with the cold war that had so much production of weapons but never actually used it because it was a fake war. People are willing to give up rights when it’s to protect their home from an attacker…even if one doesn’t really exist.

2 Make societal ideals. Blue collar jobs were made to look bad…look ‘lower’ than white collar jobs. Desk jobs make one seem educated, better than other people. Make false ideals that are unattainable, like owning a house, 2.5 children, 2 cars, etc. This keeps the population preoccupied over trivial matters.

3 Using the new technology to make one into a slave of their lifestyle rather than to make a person’s life easier. Make it so it is necessary. Make work far so you need a car. Make tv addicting so you need to buy it. Everything is something people can’t live without when really it is only and accessory.

4 Make the idea of being like a robot appealing. Use media to humanize robots. Make humans seem more horrible than robots. Idealize their characteristics. Make having emotions negative. Make it so they can work like a robot.

5 Make people distrust one another. Politicians lie to us even though they really don’t affect our true lives. People that others look up to, like actors, athletes, etc, showcase their affairs, divorce, etc. It makes it more acceptable to do yourself. Kids are made not to trust parents. Parents made to mistrust kids. Relationships are skewed. Shows like Cheaters, Jerry Springer, etc on TV to make people think of it subconsciously about their significant other. This prepetuates every aspect. Every family member needs to have their own tv, pc, phone. Maybe the parents don’t trust the kids to give them money to buy it, so the kid gets a job at 16 so he can buy his own. Parents are made to think they shouldn’t help their kids at all. Make the kid start from the ground up, when really parents are supposed to help the next generation have a better life than the generation before.

6 Make people think that they have a choice. Make them believe that if they can choose what music to listen to, if they can choose what food to eat, what car they can drive, that they still have their freedom when REALLY THEY DO NOT.

      I honestly don't see how the USA plans to accomplish any of its goals as a great country with how it is going. Too many hands are in the pot and too many things get leaked or tampered with. In the end, everyone is dissatisfied with their government - even the President. So, it makes me wonder what the country as a whole plans to do with itself in the future.

      It's a lot of things; sad, frustrating, annoying, but perhaps not odd. Unfortunately for me, it's unsurprising. I've seen enough articles now promoting China and their growing wealth (considering all the Western companies giving them all the jobs...), and somehow it's supposed to overshadow everything horrible about them, and that it is desirable to emulate their society.

      Sadly, this is the route the world has to take for their misguided wishes of utopia. Everyone wants to be rich and everyone wants to be famous, sadly, it'll never work.

      I ask you though, does it not strike you odd that the USA is degrading into a communist state?
