America is one of the most mind controlled countries on the planet. Hypocritically, Americans chant with religious fervor about how they have freedom and democracy, while at the same time ACT like the “Borg Collective” from Star Trek that tries to assimilate everyone, both domestic and abroad. It’s the ultimate lie and as they say “Actions speak louder than words”. So we will look at the “actions” of control and conformity in America as opposed to the false rhetoric that the automaton populace chant as their religion.
In America, truth is not the highest ideal or passion. Neither is freedom or democracy, contrary to the myth.
The country is governed by a sense of “moral authoritarianism” or the concept of “might makes right”, which basically teaches that “Authority = Truth” rather than the actual truth itself. It’s all about conformity and obedience to authority and the manufactured consensus.
Basically, you are taught to believe whatever you are told by authority, the media, and the consensus, even if it doesn’t make sense and even if those sources have been proven to be pathological liars in the past and agenda-driven. In other words, you are not supposed to “think for yourself” in the “land of the free” protected by the First Amendment. Such is the irony and hypocrisy.
For example, whoever the elite corporate cabal pick as President and Vice President, (under the illusion of the voting process) are your public leaders, and your duty is to listen to them. Even if they are obviously pure evil scumbags with no credibility, such as Vice President Dick Cheney, you are still supposed to believe whatever they say and trust them as though they were moral paragons of truth and justice! In other words, you are to treat all figures of authority as moral paragons of credibility and integrity, even though they have NEVER earned or proven themselves to possess such attributes! And even if their record and actions show quite the opposite!
Now, you wouldn’t hold an unknown stranger to be a paragon of truth would you? So why should you trust any stranger who suddenly becomes President of the United States, handpicked by the cabal, just like that, whether it’s Obama or Bush or anyone else? It doesn’t make sense and is illogical. Yet when you turn on the news, your President is already speaking to you as though you and everyone sees him as a paragon of truth and credibility, as though it were a given, simply because he is the leader and you are the follower. That’s ludicrous!
It’s a total disgrace and insult to your intelligence of course, but again, in America authority and consensus = truth, and that’s that. Your mainstream media conforms to that and doesn’t question it, so who are you to? You also have a patriotic duty to go along with what you’re told. There is no real freedom to disagree, even though you are told that there is. It’s a direct lie and contradiction.
In America, people are also taught to keep each other in line, so if you get out of line and do not follow the hive mentality of authority/media = truth, then you are ostracized and psychologically attacked by your peers. In that sense, the elite have a perfect form of mind control whereby the masses keep each other in line for them, without the need for martial law or troops. And your TV of course, is the technological instrument which makes it all the more easy for them.
So basically, America is all about CONFORMITY to whatever you are told by authority, media, and the social consensus (or perceived engineered consensus rather). Independent freethinking and truth seeking are not allowed. Yet all the while, you are supposed to boast to the world that “America is a free country”. Total bull. It’s a form of Orwellian “double think” whereby you are told one thing and given another, and programmed not to see the discrepancy.
It’s sophisticated mind control and psychological warfare.
Here are some basic behaviors you are expected to CONFORM to in order to fit in and be considered NORMAL in America:
1) You live to work, are a workaholic, and tie your identity to your job, organization and culture. “You are what you do” in other words. And you have no identity outside of that. You are a happy slave who is glad to give your life to the economy in corporate servitude. This gives you purpose and contentment. It is what you strive and live for. After all, everyone is striving for that, so you’d better too!
2) You consume endless junk with your hard earned money, junk that you don’t need which advertisers sell you, in order to fill the emptiness within you, and enjoy your life, while helping out your economy at the same time. So, you seek your pleasure in consumerism, both for your benefit and in your patriotic duty to help the US economy. Consumption is your key to happiness, not a healthy sense of self, spirituality or social connection.
3) You confine your social interaction within closed cliques that you established early on in high school or college. You only communicate with strangers for business related purposes (e.g. customer service, business transactions, professional sales, etc.).
You are not comfortable socializing or befriending strangers because you are paranoid of them, for every stranger out there is to be feared as a potential psycho, creep or criminal. This is the attitude that your media teaches you and is the social consensus. (never mind the fact that America is generally safe and so are most strangers) Just look at your local news. It’s filled with fear mongering stories designed to make you paranoid of others.
Thus, you live in fear and paranoia for your own safety, since everyone else does too. You are taught that fear and paranoia are healthy protective attitudes to have. And as a conformist, you follow the media and their consensus of course. Your safe refuge is in the safe structured environment of your home, routine, job, and closed clique of friends.
Now, if you didn’t establish any lifelong friends or cliques early on in life, then you’re basically F***ed and a loser, so you’d better not draw attention to it or complain about it, lest you be seen as a loser and told that “you’re the only one”. Instead, be quiet and live in denial about it, while focusing on your civic duty to work and consumption (ala #1 and 2) to make yourself useful to society at least. Winners never complain about loneliness or lovelessness, only losers do.
Furthermore, since you are basically seen as a business resource in America, it’s better that you limit your social life anyway, so you have more time to be industrious and work, since business is the purpose of your life, according to US corporate culture.
In fact, the local news projects the assumption onto everyone that relationships and friendships are not even a problem or issue in America. Instead, everyone already has a spouse, family and loved ones, and the only issue on everyone’s mind is economic and job related concerns. That is the CONSENSUS attitude that the mainstream media and local news projects onto you. Therefore, if you’re lonely and not happy with your social or love life, you’d better not admit to it, for the consensus is that such problems don’t exist! Your tube is your reality, so if it’s not on the news, it’s not an issue.
4) You believe whatever you are told by authority, your corporate media and the social consensus (or manufactured consensus rather). Authority = Truth. Consensus = Truth. Might makes right. Truth is whatever you are told by the proper sources of authority, such as the government and corporate media, not what actually is. You believe whatever you see on TV, especially if it’s from the respected corporate media (ABC, NBC, CBS, Fox, CNN, etc.)
You are a follower and conformist who follows the “herd mentality” that is engineered and conditioned into you. And at the same time you chant that you are living in a country full of freedom, free speech and democracy, while the rest of the world is under fascism and oppression. America is the richest and happiest country in the world, and you’d better believe that, not cause it’s how you really feel deep down, but because it’s what you’re told is the consensus of the whole world. And any consensus belief (albeit manufactured) better be YOUR belief as well.
Anyone elected to be your leader by the cabal, under the illusion of the voting process, is someone you automatically trust as a moral paragon of truth and integrity. They don’t have to earn your trust or earn their credibility. It’s an automatic given. They are your leader, and you are a follower, so your trust and faith in them are a given. For example, someone like Obama can come out of nowhere and become President, if the elite cabal wish it. Even though he has done NOTHING to earn your trust or establish himself as a paragon of truth or integrity, you are to treat him as such, because he your LEADER and YOU are a FOLLOWER, and that’s that. Forget the fact that it’s illogical to trust a man brought up and groomed by a proven evil corrupt sociopathic elite cabal. You do not serve the truth. You serve authority and consensus. Got it?
And you are NOT to use your freethinking mind to doubt or challenge any of this. Instead, you are to use your “mind” to ridicule and ostracize anyone who doesn’t agree with the system, hive mentality or social consensus. That is your duty. You find nonconformists as repugnant.
5) You must agree with all consensus opinions (no matter how unjust and untrue) and avoid any taboo topics (no matter how true), aka adhering to “political correctness”. In other words, you are psychologically and socially forced to agree with what you’re told and what the consensus is, yet you must also believe that you live in a society that protects “freedom of speech”. Another case of “double think”.
From youth, you are psychologically conditioned to believe that conforming is “cool” and not conforming is “uncool”. So much for free speech and freedom of thought.
This especially applies to “special” groups that are protected and given a special status of unaccountability in America. We are talking certain minority/racial ethnicities and gender (women of course) groups. (Now I’m not going to point out which specific racial groups these are, since I don’t want to come across as being racist here, but we all know what they are).
What this means is that they are totally shielded from judgment and criticism, and can get away with anything. In that sense, they are basically infallible and unaccountable, for it is totally taboo to criticize them. Doing so will result in one being socially attacked as a “racist or sexist”.
Therefore, these groups are shielded, which invites them to abuse or mistreat others, and get away with crimes even. That is plain wrong and unjust. But of course, you are not allowed to complain about it or expose it.
Now, I want to make it clear that I do NOT advocate hatred toward any group, minority or gender. I am not a racist or sexist. I am merely pointing out the TRUTH and reality that when you shield any person or group from any accountability, criticsm or judgment, it will naturally invite them to misuse and abuse their special protected status and allow them to get away with anything. They can and WILL do it. (I could give so many examples, but it might be best not to lest it be used against me). This is especially true in societies like the US where selfishness and self-interest are encouraged as good values.
An example of a manufactured media image that promotes inequality and false gender stereotypes is in modern TV shows and movies (especially those that focus on relationships) where men are portrayed as “dumb, immature, and dishonest” whereas women are depicted as “honest, sane, and mature”. See this movie poster as an example:
Now this stereotype is often not true and promotes male bashing. But of course, you aren’t allowed to argue with it since it’s a consensus opinion. Doing so will draw condemnation and brand you as a “sexist” or “misogynist”. It’s one of the biggest taboos. So taboo in fact, that not even the right of free speech can protect you from it.
That’s why even freethinking leaders who oppose conformity and mind control (Alex Jones, David Icke, Michael Tsarion, etc.) and alternative media will not touch this issue or expose the inequity of it, for it would cause them to lose their female fans, which is a large base to them. Only Men’s Rights groups will, and they get little or no coverage in mainstream media.
It’s a bigger taboo than talking about UFO’s or conspiracies even. While the subject of UFO’s, psychics and conspiracies are professional taboos that can cause one to lose professional credibility, this taboo is a social one that carries far bigger consequences, which includes social and emotional hatred directed at the violator. Exposing it will put you in the same category as a Neo-Nazi or Anti-Semite. It’s the mother of all taboos.
One reason is because there is an unspoken rule in America that any time you publicly compare men and women in any way, the comparison MUST be more favorable to the women. They must come out on top one way or another. To do the opposite would be anathema.
In fact, women are portrayed in the modern culture as princesses who can do no wrong. They are in the judge’s seat and can never be judged themselves, for they are shielded and given a special status of unaccountability. This has turned them into entitlement queens who do not need any social skills or to behave decently. All the burden of proof and accountability are on the men. It’s an unspoken truth. This is all very unjust and unfair. But you aren’t allowed to complain about it, or else. It’s total social mind control. And you are obligated to agree and conform to it.
Now I am not against women. I LOVE women and treat them as princesses, and in fact many of my best friends are females. I even enjoy non-sexual female companionship. But I am just pointing the simple fact that when you give ANY group or gender a special status of unaccountability, they can and WILL misuse and abuse it. This has nothing to do with my feelings or biases. It’s just a fact. And it goes both ways.
These are all yet more examples of why truth has no value or significance in America, and why it’s all about conforming to the consensus.
As long as you conform, you are free to pay lip service to “truth and freedom”. Thus you are allowed to be a hypocrite if you want, but not a nonconformist!
Conclusion and Recommendations:
So, to be considered “normal” in America and not ostracized or ridiculed as a freak, fringe outcast or nutcase, you’ve got to follow all the so called “well adjusted” behaviors above. Or at least pretend to. If you think or believe differently from the above, you are to remain silent about it and not cause any disruption to the “hive groupthink”.
Your duty of course, is to conform, while at the same time paying lip service to “truth and freedom”, thus becoming a hypocrite yourself. Even immigrants are expected to conform and become “Americanized”.
Most do conform of course, not due to the feelings of their heart, but out of fear, out of weakness and insecurity, out of the need for acceptance, and out of their natural inclination to follow others. You see, most people have no identity other than the group, organization or culture that accepts them into it. They fear true freedom and independence of mind and thought. (See Eric Fromm’s “Escape From Freedom”)
Nevermind the fact that the behaviors above are actually the complete antithesis to a wholesome sense of self, passion, creativity and rich human connections, as well as freedom and truth. Conforming to them, in fact, leads to a life of slavery, materialistic values, repression, a false sense of self, social segregation, an attitude of fear and paranoia, and a sheep-like mind.
Nevermind the truth. Because truth is what you’re told, and as a conformist, it is YOUR job and duty to follow authority, media and social consensus.
Nevermind the fact that its society that is sick and dysfunctional, and therefore adjusting to it makes you dysfunctional as well. Throughout history great thinkers have observed that the true insanity lies with the mobs and groupthink mentality, not the individual dissident. Here are some eloquent examples:
“The object in life is not to be on the side of the majority, but to escape finding oneself in the ranks of the insane.” – Marcus Aurelius, Roman Emperor
“It is no measure of health to be well adjusted to a profoundly sick society.” – Jiddu Krishnamurti
“The men the American public admire most extravagantly are the most daring liars; the men they detest most violently are those who try to tell them the truth.” – H. L. Mencken
“Even if you are a minority of one, the truth is the truth.” – Gandhi
“Insanity in individuals is something rare – but in groups, parties, nations and epochs, it is the rule.” – Frederich Nietzsche
“Ninety-nine percent of the people in the world are fools, and the rest of us are in great danger of contagion.” – Thornton Wilder
“Whenever people agree with me I always feel I must be wrong.” — Oscar Wilde
“Men have been taught that it is a virtue to agree with others. But the creator is the man who disagrees. Men have been taught that it is a virtue to swim with the current. But the creator is the man who goes against the current. Men have been taught that it is a virtue to stand together. But the creator is the man who stands alone.” – Ayn Rand
“Honesty is such a lonely word. Everyone is so untrue…” – Billy Joel, in his hit song “Honesty”
“The sick individual finds himself at home with all other similarly sick individuals. The whole culture is geared to this kind of pathology. The result is that the average individual does not experience the separateness and isolation the fully schizophrenic person feels. He feels at ease among those who suffer from the same deformation; in fact, it is the fully sane person who feels isolated in the insane society — and he may suffer so much from the incapacity to communicate that it is he who may become psychotic.” – Eric Fromm (The Anatomy of Human Destructiveness)
(Fromm’s statement above perhaps explains why the majority do not see the obvious social realities I described.)
This parable illustrates the truth that Fromm described very well:
“The parable of the poisoned well
There was once a wise king who ruled over a vast city. He was feared for his might and loved for his wisdom. Now in the heart of the city, there was a well whose waters were pure and crystalline from which the king and all the inhabitants drank. When all were asleep, an enemy entered the city and poured seven drops of a strange liquid into the well. And he said that henceforth all who drink this water shall become mad.
All the people drank of the water, but not the king. And the people began to say, “The king is mad and has lost his reason. Look how strangely he behaves. We cannot be ruled by a madman, so he must be dethroned.”
The king grew very fearful, for his subjects were preparing to rise against him. So one evening, he ordered a golden goblet to be filled from the well, and he drank deeply. The next day, there was great rejoicing among the people, for their beloved king had finally regained his reason.”
Thus it is sad and no wonder that we live in an upside down world, as Michael Ellner describes in this profound statement:
“Just look at us. Everything is backwards. Everything is upside down. Doctors destroy health, lawyers destroy justice, universities destroy knowledge, governments destroy freedom, the major media destroy information, and religion destroys spirituality.”
Yet our society never looks at itself. Instead, it looks for victims and dissidents to target and scapegoat. No matter how dysfunctional society or the system is, YOU are the one seen as dysfunctional and a loser if you don’t fit into that sick system. It’s a case of the pot calling the kettle black.
But alas, it is taboo to blame society or the system, for one’s duty is to follow, not to challenge. Instead, blame can only be directed toward individuals who refuse to conform or who are maladjusted to the dysfunctional norms in America (which technically means they’re sane, since a double negative is a positive).
That’s why America is all about illusion, mind control and conformity, rather than truth, freedom or a happy healthy sense of self and relationships.
Now, if America were honest and admitted that it is a conformist society and culture, truth seekers like me would have less of a problem with it. But instead, it tries to pass itself off as a “society of freedom, free thought and free speech” and that’s where the hypocrisy lies. It’s totally deceitful, since the reality is that at every angle, you are pressured to conform in America.
The BIGGEST LIE is that America constantly seeks to take away more and more of your freedoms and control what you do and think, while at the same time tells you that you are living in the only country where freedom exists! Likewise, while America seeks to dominate and control other nations, it lies to its own people that it is fighting for freedom and democracy abroad! This is hypocrisy and deceit of the highest magnitude.
We all need to WAKE UP and realize that we are living in the “Borg Collective”, not in the “land of the free”, and stop chanting and raving about how free and democractic we are like mindless automatons. Only when the spell over your mind is broken, will you be truly free. And that begins with your mind. The rest will flow from there. Once you are attuned to the truth, more truth will come as your consciousness seeks it out.
Now, there is nothing inherently wrong with getting things, buying things, or with TV itself. It’s what those things are USED for that make them destructive to the human psyche. They are used to MANIPULATE people, brainwash them, and control them, inducing a materialistic herd mentality and attitude of fear and paranoia which conforms to a manufactured consensus. They are used as substitutes to replace a healthy self-esteem, human relationships, social connection, spirituality, truth, freedom, passion, creativity, expression and freethought, all of which are suppressed.
Rather than teaching us to cultivate a healthy sense of self that is spiritual, intellectual, truth seeking, aware, conscious, creative and geared toward happy healthy relationships and deep social connections, the system represses such things. Instead, we are conditioned to focus on materialism, corporate slavery, segregation, selfishness, fear and sheep mentality.
All that leads to a screwed up sense of identity, relationships and society, as well as a perpetual state of fear, stress and fragmentation, both inner and outer.
You are not supposed to see the dysfunction in society of course. One is only allowed to blame oneself if one fails to conform, for one is always expected to look happy and positive. And of course, one is expected to ridicule others who complain or expose all this as well.
That’s the tragedy and illusion of this state of affairs.
Moreover, the corporate elite have a vested interest in limiting your social relationships, family life, and creativity or passions, for if you have too many friends, good social connections and/or spend too much time cultivating your passions and creative pursuits, then you will have less time for industrious work and productivity, which America sees as the purpose of your life. You see, your life is a business resource to America, a commodity, measured in terms of productivity, not passion. Thus your communication and relationships should generally be for business purposes only.
America’s goal is for you to remain a “happy slave”, productive and efficient. To do that, it must maintain the illusion of freedom and democracy. But it definitely does NOT want to encourage you to pursue things like passion, creativity or deep human bonds and relationships. No way. Nor does it encourage you to think for yourself. Such things are counterproductive to its goal of keeping you a “happy slave” whose life is “all business”. That’s why America teaches a system where such things are highly compartmentalized, limited or suppressed. To America, the economy is number one, NOT your soul!
So what can you do about all this? Well you can expose it and bring awareness to it (like I’m doing here). And you can tell yourself everyday “I am a human being! Not a business resource!” But the most important thing is for you to place yourself among groups, movements or cultures that are conducive to life of freedom, passion and rich human connections and relationships. There are many alternative or counter culture type movements in the US for instance, that support a life free of “the system” where you can meet like minded others.
And you can learn to think for yourself which will help liberate your own mind. To help aid in this, I recommend reading Darryl Sloan’s book Reality Check. It’s the best dissertation I’ve seen about learning to see through harmful and bogus belief systems. You can get it at http://darrylsloan.wordpress.com/reality-check/ (sample chapters and audio reading available).
Or you can go to overseas cultures where passion and camaraderie are still regarded as the focus of life, rather than cold hearted business and closed cliquishness. There are many cultures abroad that are far more open, relaxed and inclusive, where people are not segregated by “ice barriers” or paranoia. I’ve experienced many of them and can vouch that they are a world of difference. But the US media doesn’t want you to know about them of course, so you will not hear about this on mainstream channels. For many, this has been a happy fulfilling and permanent solution to the misery, stress and loneliness of America. Some examples are: Latin America, Mexico, Russia, Italy, Spain, France, Greece, Holland, Mexico, Southeast Asia, The Philippines, Thailand, Indonesia, etc. There, the people are generally more open, relaxed and less cliquish.
But you’d better hurry though, cause America is in a rush to try to turn the “cultures of passion” out there into cold business-like cultures like itself! So you’d better pray that it fails in its attempt to “globalize” the world into a carbon copy of itself.
On the other hand, if you do not thrive in cultures that are set up to be socially closed, cliquish, repressed, where people are robotic followers who live in fear and idolize a workaholic lifestyle devoid of passion and creativity, you might want to also avoid these countries besides America: Canada, Japan, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Korea, Finland, Norway, etc.
Of course, other cultures lie somewhere between both these categories. And everyone will have different experiences in different cultures, so experiences will vary.
But the important thing is that you choose a culture or atmosphere where your INNER matches your OUTER environment. In other words, if you are shy, conservative, socially closed or cliquish, as well as a workaholic, you would vibe best in cultures that reflect such qualities (e.g. Japan, Taiwan). But if you are open, passionate, sociable, relaxed and carefree, you’d fit best in cultures dominated by such traits (e.g. Latin America, parts of Europe). Otherwise, a mismatch between your inner self and outer environment is not a good thing. It will weaken you in the long term and not allow your natural self to come out or bring out the best in you.
The important lesson here is that authority does NOT equal truth, as we are conditioned to believe from childhood. Truth is not their job. Their job is CONTROL you, and they will do whatever it takes to accomplish that, including propaganda, lies, pressure to conform, mind control, psychological warfare, fear mongering, punishment and ostracization, deprivation, and even murder. Also, the job of the media is NOT to inform or educate you, or to make you wiser and more knowledgeable. Their job is to keep you a happy slave who works, consumes and obeys, while dumbing you down with trashy content to keep you living in fear and paranoia. Such is the grim reality and sad state of affairs. But once you make truth your aim and passion, rather than conformity, you are SET FREE, first in your mind and consciousness, and then in your lifestyle. As they say, “The truth shall set you free.”
Therefore, question everything. Don’t take anything on faith. Check and research every important issue and decision in your life. You will find that when you dig deep, a lot of what you are told are lies or exaggerations. The rabbit hole goes deeper than you can imagine, and gets deeper as you dig.
It takes courage and a higher sense of awareness/consciousness to rise above the system, to shed yourself of programming and mind control, and free yourself of these psychological shackles, so that you can seek truth and passion, and not care what others think.
As Frederich Nietzsche notes:
“The individual has always had to struggle to keep from being overwhelmed by the tribe. If you try it, you will be lonely often, and sometimes frightened. But no price is too high to pay for the privilege of owning yourself.”
Remember that the first step to true freedom begins in your MIND and consciousness. To do that, you’ve got to develop a thinking that is separate from the hive, one that can recognize all this “double think” mind control for what it is, and the insanity and dysfunction of it all. And one that refuses to live in fear, but instead lives in love, truth and freedom.
To help aid in this first step of learning to think for yourself, I recommend reading Darryl Sloan’s Reality Check. It’s the best dissertation I’ve seen about learning to see through harmful and bogus belief systems. You can get it at http://darrylsloan.wordpress.com/reality-check/ (sample chapters and audio reading available).
From there, the rest will flow naturally. The universe will bring events and other people in your life who are on a similar path to teach and help you as needed, or join/ally with you in your journey and purpose. No matter the distance, people who resonate on the same frequency will be drawn to each other one way or another.
Truth is not something you arrive at. It’s a search, a journey. As an old Chinese proverb says, “The journey of a thousand miles begins with one step.”
So the question is: Will you take that first step? Or will you remain with the hive?
