The Brainwashing Indoctrinating Enslaving Control System

Updated on February 1, 2019

Step into the Fire

It truly has been fun. It has been a wonderful time and everyone has thoroughly enjoyed being lazy and sleepwalking (sheepwalking) through life, but those days must now be over and done with. It is time to awaken -- awaken from "The Machine" that has lulled us into the slumber that makes us unaware of its grasp. It is time to rise from this slumber, slap our faces awake, and proceed into the real future that is in store for us -- rather than this fake one they keep telling us is unavoidable and inevitable ... but we say "no" to this future and the masses who are embracing it! "N" - "O" spells NO! And we will not care what anyone thinks of us as a result of stating our objections -- lions do not concern themselves with the opinions of sheep.

"First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win." - Mahatma Gandhi ... and then they want to be you!

It is time we rise from our sleep and journey far beyond what is called "normal" to a place called "awake" and realize that we have been living a fake life in a false reality. It is time to realize the truth so that we can step into the lives of our true selves, and begin to interact with the world from that perspective.

"Step into the fire of self-discovery. This fire will not burn you, it will only burn what you are not." - Mooji.

The Power to Change the World

We must not fail to act, and therefore become powerless to thinking that would suggest we can do nothing to change our lives or the world -- of course we can! Our lives (the world) have become what they are because we no longer realize the true nature of what we really are, but we can change that; it is already changing. Things do not have to be as they are; our lives and the world can be whatever we decide them to be, and that can begin during the very moment in which it is decided. If we can realize who and what we really are, instead of continuing to be blinded from the truth by the illusion that we perceive to be real, we can create a whole new reality -- for all of us.

A simple change in perception has the power to change the whole world; it begins by realizing that what we really are is Infinite Consciousness -- having an experience -- that is called "human". What a different world this one is to the one of thinking that we are just whatever this world has told us we are. You are not a name, place, religion, gender, occupation, or any of the rest of that kind of stuff; you are ALL, that ever was, is, or can be ... that is what you are. If we change our perception of self from "MY NAME" to "ALL THAT IS", we go from being able to change no things to being able to change ALL things -- anything ... everything.

I am Infinite Consciousness; YOU are Infinite Consciousness; WE are Infinite Consciousness. Infinite Consciousness = Love, therefore: I am LOVE; YOU are LOVE; WE are LOVE. What a fantastic difference that would make in the world!

Something is Wrong with the World

What happened to us? How did we, Infinite Eternal Conscious Awareness, become so narrowly focused that "IT" actually came to believe itself to be one single human being all alone in the universe? How did the human race go from a state of perpetual freedom to what we have become today (slaves)? It is a very long story indeed, and it will take much patience, time, and research by each individual person -- it's gonna be a lot of work, but what is the alternative? Remaining slaves is simply not an option! Awakening will require dedication and commitment that is beyond what people may be familiar with at the time.

Freedom comes with responsibility; a lot of people don't like that, but in order to change our situation, we first have to take responsibility for it. No-one is going to fix it but us, so we better stop making excuses and get real busy real quick -- before we go even further into slavery ... your children and grandchildren are counting on you for god's sake! Eleanor Roosevelt: "Freedom makes a huge requirement of every human being. With freedom comes responsibility. For the person who is unwilling to grow up, the person who does not want to carry his own weight, this is a frightening prospect." It is time to grow up and realize that there is something wrong with the way the world works.

Jordan Maxwell: “Nothing in this world operates the way you think it does. Banks do not loan money, governments are not empowered to protect you, the police department is not there to serve you, institutions of higher learning, colleges and educational institutes, are not there to educate you. The entire superstructure of civilization in the Western world is a combination of brilliantly put together and planned, well-planned, schemes to direct the minds of the people in such a way as to serve their masters."

Edward Bernays: “There are invisible rulers who control the destinies of millions. It is not generally realized to what extent the words and actions of our most influential public men are dictated by shrewd persons operating behind the scenes.”

Ignorance

It seems that almost everyone is completely ignorant of the basic way in which the world is structured and how it actually works. So, then, as Thomas Jefferson asked, "If ignorance is bliss, why aren't more people happy?" But it is not so; people are not happy. Whoever came up with "ignorance is bliss" was obviously extremely ignorant, because they had no idea in the world what they were talking about.

Ignorance can be fun but often leads to very bad things, which is where far too many people are in their lives at the present time. Many are so stupidly ignorant that they currently don't even have the desire within themselves to improve the horrible lives that they are constantly making sure everyone else is aware they are experiencing. If you are going to complain about something, you should be in the process of doing something about it -- in order to do something about it you must first stop being ignorant of it!

There is no sense in arguing with people who are like that; you cannot expect logic and reason to be comprehended by the illogical and unreasonable. Fish do not climb trees and cows cannot fly -- stop expecting them to. They are never going to; they must learn on their own, and allowing them to do so is to do them no harm.

We must not get caught up in useless and time-wasting debates with ignorant people: "Never argue with stupid people, they will drag you down to their level and then beat you with experience." - Mark Twain. This can never be a truly positive or beneficial experience for anyone to have; so, why do so many people choose to spend their time this way? Is being "right" really all that important? Why do people spend countless hours arguing about idiotic non-important nonsense with people they don't even know on social media sites, that have admitted to manipulating us emotionally? What are you doing spending your time that way?

You're gonna die one day ... how are you spending your time?

Look at what is happening to the world. Ayn Rand: "We can ignore reality, but we cannot ignore the consequences of ignoring reality." Look at what is happening to our country. “A nation of sheep will beget a government of wolves.” - Edward R. Murrow. A government of wolves? That's what we have -- because we are ignorant sheep. No more! How did we go from sovereignty, freedom, and liberty ... to "please take away our rights"? It is amazing! How have we become so utterly and helplessly stupid? What are we doing asking our masters to take our rights away?

Humanity has been manipulated and hypnotized into a comatose-like state of unconsciousness; we have been deliberately and systematically kept in such a state so that we will never realize the truth of who we are and from where we have come. There is nothing we can do to take back our lives unless we deliberately choose to become conscious. Carl Jung: "Until you make the unconscious conscious, it will direct your life and you will call it fate."

Ignorance is the key to all of this; what we know brings about what we will challenge or accept, ignore or respond to, support or abandon ... our ignorance determines what we will put up with. If we are ignorant, we will not know what we need to know to make good decisions; it doesn't matter how smart someone is, if they have bad information they cannot make good decisions. "The most violent element in society is ignorance." - Emma Goldman, and this is why we see so much violence in the world.

We are kept in ignorance from the time we are born; first from parents who are ignorant, and then straight off to school to be indoctrinated by teachers who are ignorant. Then, if you're "lucky", off to college you go -- so that you can get a "good" job. Yes, we surely need more of those! Get back to work humans! Your perceptions have now been successfully programed by the Control System, who will now control your mind for the rest of your miserable life. Very good! What a fantastic job you have done! Congratulations! Now spend the rest of your life trying to pay the bill ... have fun with that one! This is what we frightfully call "learning" and "education".

Indoctrinated for Life

The problem with the education system is that the only thing we are taught is whatever facilitates us best serving the Control System, and believing for the rest of our lives whatever they want us to believe -- then they want us to spend the rest of our lives trying to pay it back! This is slavery ... period. And those who have fallen for it are in massive amounts of debt, from which they will never escape -- people who are in debt, to people who can hurt them or ruin their lives, do whatever they are told. People frightened of losing everything they "have worked so hard for" will do whatever they are told by the "authorities" that they have been indoctrinated by.

By the end of this mind control machine, people have been brainwashed into believing that other people, just like themselves, have some kind of innate superiority over them in such a way that entitles them to rule over us -- and we pay them money, for our whole lives, to do this! And brainwashing isn't real? What more proof does one need? This is absolutely insane, and we think it is "respectable"! It is no such thing! It is to be pitied, every bit the same as people held in shackles and chains. We should not tolerate this in our society -- and we certainly should not be volunteering for it; even more so, we should not be suggesting to children that it is good! Unbelievable ... but that is what we do.

We went from a free society to: "Go to work. Send your kids to school. Follow fashion. Act normal. Walk on the pavement. Watch TV. Save for your old age. Obey the law. Repeat after me: I AM FREE." - unknown. Freedom this, freedom that, we're free, they're free, freedom, freedom, freedom! Why do they have to keep telling us we are free? If we really are free, it truly does not seem that we would need the constant reminders. It is almost as if someone somewhere is afraid that we might find out that we're not free.

Joseph Goebbels (Reich Minister of Propaganda, Nazi Germany): “If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.”

Charles Bukowski: "Slavery was never abolished, it was only extended to include all the colors."

People go on and on about their freedom and how they are the master of their own life and this and that, but how can someone consider themselves free when they have to get to work "on time" in the morning? You are going to be in trouble if you don't get there on time, and you will be punished if you do the wrong thing ... but you are free? Chickens in a coop also think they are free. Slavery works better when people don't realize they are slaves, because there is no response to the slavery. To stop being a slave, you first must realize that you are one. Someone once said, "I freed a thousand slaves. I could have freed a thousand more, if only they knew they were slaves."

Realize Your Slavery

Most people have to get up before they want and go do something they don't like doing, just to survive -- slavery. Then every once in a while, like every four years or so, we are given something that we are told is going to make our lives better -- we get to vote. WHOOHOOO! "There there, settle down now; you have a voice; you have a say. All better now?" Good, then -- back to work slaves!

It is just an illusion to keep you pacified, because whenever we vote we are just voting for a different mask on the same face. It's kinda like the police: it doesn't matter who wears the uniform, the same "force" is in charge; it doesn't matter who the President is, the same "force" is in charge. Can you see that? "There are three classes of people: those who see, those who see when they are shown, those who do not see." - Leonardo da Vinci. Which one are you? Far too many people are the third category; they just can't "see". It is because "the eyes are useless when the mind is blind".

Mind Control

How can so few control billions of humans? The same way that one farmer can control a whole pasture full of cows, through control of perception. One farmer cannot physically control even one cow, let alone a whole pasture full of them! So, how do they do it then? They control the mind of the cow; if the cow never perceives anything beyond the boundaries of what the farmer allows it believe, it is easy for the farmer to make the huge animal do what he wants it to. Billions of humans can be controlled the same way, and really, we are not much different than cattle being herded -- probably to our slaughter, especially if we don't start to get our heads out of whatever holes they have been crammed into.

You can put your head in the sand all you like, but you gotta get on your knees to do so -- which leaves your behind up in the air, where it is sure to at some point come in contact with the boot of the inevitable tyranny that always waits behind those with their heads in the sand. What are you doing with your head in there? You are about to get kicked in the rear! Someone get the other shoulder -- time for another head-pulling operation!

Billions of people cannot be controlled physically any more than one farmer can physically control a bunch of cows; it cannot be done! So, that's why your head is in the sand, because that's where they put it. If you keep your head in that hole, they can freely kick you from behind and there will be nothing you can do about it. You won't even know who or what is kicking you if you keep your head down there in that hole of never-ending ill-informed ignorance!

To control that many people, they have to program us to perceive the world only in the way that suits them and satisfies them getting what they want. They (the Control System) tell us what is good, bad, right, wrong, true, false, and shape our thoughts, opinions, beliefs ... our perceptions, of what is real or fake, possible or impossible; this is all played out in the lives of humanity every moment that we are alive.

"We'll know our disinformation program is complete when everything the American public believes is false." - William Casey (Director, CIA). The State literally controls our minds: "Deception is a state of mind and the mind of the State.” - James Angleton (Associate Deputy Director of Operations for Counterintelligence, CIA). Stop falling for it! The whole thing is a mind game to convince us that we are free, when we are actually slaves! Henry Kissinger (Secretary of State, United States): "It is not a matter of what is true that counts, but a matter of what is perceived to be true." If we believe official sources, we believe what they want us to believe. And one of the things they want us to believe is that we should always be afraid -- very afraid, of everything!

Aaaagggghhhh!

"Be afraid. Be very afraid." - Veronica Quaife.

Someone is surely going to set off nuclear bombs worldwide at any moment! You are going to die, this very instant of ... something! The world seems to be ending every other day or so; did you miss the end of the world again too? Life is doomed; Earth is doomed, and in a second or two from now some terrible thing is going to happen to you! After they get you all worked up and upset, they let you know who and what is going to save you -- them!

The more threats the Control System can imagine, the more they can "save" us from those threats that they have manipulated us into perceiving as dangerous to ourselves and to our loved ones. All day they tell us what to think, where to go, how to shop, what to buy; all the while the TV goes on and on making stupid people famous, while we watch on with glazed over eyes from deep within a trance-like hypnotic state that we have been ignorantly manipulated into -- never realizing for one second that we've been had. Duped and had, all day every day; that's the way life is lived by the majority of people on Earth, and they are too stupid to ever figure it out.

"Heavy physical work, the care of home and children, petty quarrels with neighbors, films, football, beer, and above all, gambling filled up the horizon of their minds." - George Orwell.

Brainwashing

"Oh look, the Super Bowl is starting!"

What would all these people be doing if they were not so passionate about football? It's like some kind of religion really. They start grooming, training, and recruiting from a very young age indeed, don't they? Why does no-one seem to be bothered by the fact that school children are encouraged to play football when it has been proven to be causing them brain damage? If it were anything else, someone would go to jail! Not from high school football though -- brain damage is perfectly fine then! What are these people thinking? The very institution that is supposed to be teaching them is facilitating the damaging of their brains! And parents are supportive of this! If the physically superior are mentally inferior, where does that leave us? The ones who could do something aren't smart enough to ever figure that out...

The biggest, strongest, and toughest people in our country are either playing the sports or watching them. Imagine what could happen if thousands of people, the size and strength of professional football players, showed up to have a word with a corrupt police department? Does something like "distract all the men who could actually do something" sound at all like something people in power might want to do? Yes, absolutely it does!

What would happen if these people were as passionate about something that actually mattered, as what they are about their teams and games? What could we do then? We don't know, because the physically superior of us are distracted and pacified by meaningless nonsense that does nothing except to further their own enslavement.

Then, when their team wins: Whoohoo! It is cause for celebration! You would think that Moses was liberating the Hebrews again, the way they celebrate ... as if they themselves have achieved some great accomplishment! All this joyous celebration is happening while children down the street are starving to death, but hey, "your" team won! Great! Some people even pray to their "God" that their team will win. My goodness, do you think that "God" might have something a bit more pressing than your little game? It's a game, for god's sake -- a freakin' game! Talk about "get a life"!

Surely the manipulation should be blatant, and the role that this kind of thing plays in controlling the minds of The People should be obvious. They even put flags on it now; compelling displays of militarism and patriotism are part of all the big games now. It is because the two are being sewn together in the mind: you are patriotic and doing your "duty" if you participate in sports games.

The brainwashing is blatant, and nothing will make that more obvious than saying anything even remotely similar to someone wearing the jersey of their favorite team. Careful though, mind controlled people often react with aggression and violence. Trying to explain this to a devout lover of sporting games, like football, will sometimes elicit the same type of response that a priest gets while attempting an exorcism. These people are clearly not in control of their own minds ... and how do they act when "their" (like they are actually on the team) team loses? And what if they also lose money when "their" team loses? Quick -- someone call the priest! Yes, just like a demon.

There is some humor intended in all this, no doubt about that, but there is an important truth too: these people are not in control of their own minds; they are not conscious, and that is obvious. If they are not controlling their own minds then someone, or something, else is controlling their minds. What if these people were as motivated about things that actually mattered?

Football is just men kicking and throwing a ball from one end to the other -- that's all it is; these guys have been doing the same thing since they were boys. Maybe it's time to grow up: "A man who views the world the same at fifty as he did at twenty has wasted thirty years of his life." - Muhammad Ali.

It's time to grow up, and wake up, and finally realize what has happened and what all of it is really for. Why do you really feel so strongly about these things? What about all the other stuff we have been fooled by too? It's been so much, and it has been going on for so long, that we don't seem to know the difference anymore.

Stop Being a Fool

“One of the saddest lessons of history is this: If we’ve been bamboozled long enough, we tend to reject any evidence of the bamboozle. We’re no longer interested in finding out the truth. The bamboozle has captured us. It’s simply too painful to acknowledge, even to ourselves, that we’ve been taken. Once you give a charlatan power over you, you almost never get it back.” - Carl Sagan.

Mark Twain is attributed with saying, "It's easier to fool people than to convince them that they have been fooled." It is not known for certain that Mark Twain actually said that, but it is no less a true statement.

To admit to having been fooled is difficult; it means we have to admit that we have been stupid enough to fall for whatever nonsense we were presented with. Most people have a really hard time with that, but it is certainly better to realize and admit that we have been fooled rather than to remain ignorant of the fact. If we realize we are being fooled then we can stop being fools, simple as that. However, if we never realize that we have been fooled, we will just go on being fooled ... like one of those people who are so ignorant as to stay with a partner who has been having affairs for years. What fools they are! Better to realize and take action ... or stay a fool? What if those affairs involve personal bodily harm, as would be the case if STDs were being brought home by the cheating partner? Stay a fool? Surely, any rational thinking person can understand that it is never better to be the fool.

We have been hypnotized into a very low level of awareness; one that seduces people into believing whatever the authorities tell us, and at the same time voids us of the ability to think for ourselves. Regaining the ability to think for yourself is one of the fundamental parts of taking back what is left of your life, and creating the one you want to have. If you don't think for yourself, your life will never be something meaningful and worthwhile -- because you will always be living someone else's life instead of your own.

Carl Sagan said that once we give away our power, we can almost ... almost ... never get it back, but we are going to get it back -- we are going to take it back. You don't take your power back by grasping it softly and gently pulling; no, you take it back by grabbing onto it for dear life and yanking with everything you've got -- that, is how you get your power back. "Nobody can give you freedom. Nobody can give you equality or justice or anything. If you're a man, you take it." - Malcolm X.

Cognitive Dissonance

This kind of thinking tends to make people uncomfortable, and sometimes they act out in very irrational and aggressive ways as a result of it. It is because they are encountering knowledge that contradicts things they have been conditioned to believe, and therefore they become upset. This is due to a mental condition called "cognitive dissonance", which can actually be very beneficial to those who are capable of changing their minds in light of new information; but for those incapable of doing so, this can be quite challenging.

Religious people are especially prone to cognitive dissonance: if you present information to a religious person that factually invalidates their beliefs, they will generally react very poorly. Once they were very loving, compassionate, and kind, filled with empathy for all of mankind; but the moment you present information that contradicts what they believe, cognitive dissonance kicks in and suddenly you are on your way to burning forever in an imaginary place called "Hell" -- where you will experience a state of intense permanent suffering in the most terrifying and horrifying ways. How very loving! The Devil himself doesn't have anything on some of these people!

People who are experiencing cognitive dissonance will invent any excuse, lie, or justification to protect their fragile little belief systems. They can be very nasty when this happens, and it is due to a stressful mental state of contradiction, which hopefully can be resolved in time. This is why people who think differently are often ridiculed, laughed at, attacked, bullied, mocked, made fun of, banned, or whatever, as soon as they start speaking their mind.

"Everyone appreciates your honesty, until you're honest with them. Then you're an a**hole." - George Carlin.

People who are unique and express that uniqueness often experience bad reactions from people. This is not because being unique is wrong; it's because these people are experiencing a mental condition that caused them to want to treat you badly. The best reaction to cognitive dissonance: none. Do not react; later they will be wondering why they made such fools of themselves. We've all done it: "I can't believe how I acted! I am so embarrassed!" Then we have to do horrible things like feeling bad, apologize, and all this kind of stuff. If you get two people who are both experiencing cognitive dissonance to argue with each other, it is like a perpetual motion machine that ceaselessly draws massive amounts of energy from both people until they are exhausted beyond their ability to do anything about the cruel system of control that has enslaved us all. No, because by then they have already been all used up by their brainwashing, mind control, and by their cognitive dissonance ... and now they have become worthless, to the cause of freeing their own people.

It is an absolutely sick game, and the only way to win is to stop playing; the only way to stop being played is to stop playing the game.

It is really hard to admit to having been wrong; that is why people are so slow to do it, but realizing we have been wrong is the only way we can do anything about what we have been wrong about. If we never realize we have been wrong, we will just keep on being wrong. What's good about that? Being right and being wrong feel exactly the same; the difference only comes when the wrong is realized.

Stockholm Syndrome

Stockholm Syndrome is something else that people experience, and it is a powerful method of denial for people who have been abused and enslaved. It is what happens when people experience feelings of love or adoration for their abuser or enslaver. A lot of abused women do this when they make excuse after excuse for the abuse they endure. "Oh, he doesn't mean it ... but I love him." It is obvious to everyone else, but those who experience Stockholm Syndrome are absolutely blind to it.

Stockholm Syndrome says, "But ... the government wouldn't ever do anything like that ... I didn't see anything about it on the news; they would have said something if that was true."

Morpheus: "Most of these people are not ready to be unplugged. And many of them are so inured, so hopelessly dependent on the system, that they will fight to protect it.”

Plato: "Those who are able to see beyond the shadows and lies of their culture will never be understood, let alone believed, by the masses."

Time to Pause and Reflect

They used to kill you if you started saying things that didn't go along with what the "masses" held to be true. Now, they don't kill you; they just make everyone hate you and convince them that you are crazy, which typically has the same effect ... at least in the minds of the masses anyway.

George Carlin: "It's also interesting to notice who it is we assassinate. Did you ever notice who it is? Stop to think who it is we kill? It's always people who've told us to live together in harmony and try to love one another. Jesus, Gandhi, Lincoln, John Kennedy, Bobby Kennedy, Martin Luther King, Medgar Evers, Malcolm X, John Lennon, they all said, 'Try to live together peacefully.' BAM! Right in the f***ing head. Apparently we're not ready for that.” It's all just a big joke, sure, but it's also true ... and actually not all that funny when you think it through.

"When a true genius appears, you can know him by this sign: that all the dunces are in a confederacy against him." - Jonathan Swift.

All through history people have been abused, tortured, and killed for expressing ideas that were not acceptable to whatever the "mainstream" was at the time. "Truth does not change because it is, or is not, believed by a majority of the people." - Giordano Bruno, who was burned at the stake -- for disagreeing with the Roman Catholic Church! What a lunatic that guy was! He believed that stars were distant suns! Can you believe that? How absurd! He also thought there might be planets orbiting around those suns -- that could possibly have life on them! He also was so insane as to make the ridiculous suggestion that Earth was not at the center of the universe ... and they killed him for it!

Sometimes people, like Giordano Bruno, have been killed for their ideas and then later, not only proven to be correct, but the same ideas that got them killed have now become common and accepted "mainstream" knowledge. That is absurd, and it has happened all too often; this is why we should not be so quick to dismiss people who are presenting information or opinions that are different from anything we have ever heard before. They might be telling us something very important, but if we are foolish enough to refuse to even listen ... then maybe we deserve to be fooled; maybe we deserve to be fools. "Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to pause and reflect." - Mark Twain. Maybe it is time to "pause and reflect" ... history always shows the majority of people on a dead end path to absolutely nowhere.

Mahatma Gandhi: “Many people, especially ignorant people, want to punish you for speaking the truth, for being correct, for being you. Never apologize for being correct, or for being years ahead of your time. If you’re right and you know it, speak your mind. Speak your mind. Even if you are a minority of one, the truth is still the truth.”
