As I was studying the chemistry of how metals react with other elements, I decided I need to go tell everyone something a bit more important. I'll
try to make this brief because there is a lot to this so I'll cut to the chase.
You and I, and indeed the average ATSer who likely believes themselves to be the upper echelon of the intellectual elite of this world, are clearly
just as easy to brainwash as the typical person who does not ponder so many topics.
As you peel back the layers of the conspiracy to control the minds and behaviors of the peoples of the world, you will begin to realize that even you
too have been hooked into various forms of conditioning that The Powers That Be (TPTB) have worked very hard to bring to fruition over the last
This conditioning is diverse and affects us on every mental front from every direction. It isn't just political propaganda or corporate public
relations, it isn't just social engineering, it goes all the way to the core of who we believe we are and what we believe we seek in life itself.
Some of the well known pioneers of brainwashing techniques are Ivan Pavlov
, who learned how to
elicit "conditioned reflexes" from subjects (famously for Pavlov, it was dogs). We also have B. F.
who did many well known experiments in "operant conditioning".
is how through the use of consequences or rewards, we are
conditioned to behave certain ways. Respondant Conditioning
is when a powerful
stimulus is used in conjunction with a formerly neutral or ignored stimulus to create a specific response when the subject is presented with the new
stimulus that it formerly did not respond to. Our society is founded upon these concepts.
Our own common language reveals this - "TRIGGERED!" is a perfect example. To be triggered by something you must be first conditioned to do so. Who
conditioned the subject? These things don't happen by accident.
ATS is the place where we stand up and shout "You are all brainwashed!" and then present the audience with a conspiracy theory to impress them with
some information that they may not have known previously and then give each other high fives, because we see ourselves as "the awakened" types. How
many times have you told someone "Wake Up!" ?
Did you realize that because we are trapped in a seemingly endless labyrinth of mental cages where we have been conditioned and our consciousnesses
molded by the rest of our society, that you and I are brainwashed in all sorts of ways right now?
Sure, the political debates on ATS are great examples of how we are very brainwashed and it sure makes the argument that we are largely mind
controlled by the media to sound all too feasible. But I'm here to tell you it's everything. Religion, technology, inter-personal relations, culture
like music or theatrical performance, video games, the fact we are complicit in the destruction of the environment by participating in wasteful
practices, the very cloths we wear and the products we use hygienically to clean ourselves.
There is one Fact here I can assure you of, and I certainly hope that you will take this seriously and reflect deeply upon as you move forward in your
Most of you will think that this graphic expresses the concept succinctly:
But it's so much bigger than that. It's everything.
Did you really want to have sex with that person?
Did you really want to eat a candy bar? Why that one specifically?
Is that really your favorite car?
Does that music you like really help you identify your own feelings even though you probably never even met the artists that composed it?
Are you really a Rebel? Do you really think outside of the box?
What if I told you - maybe not.
Maybe we are fickle creatures with easily manipulated subconscious minds, maybe the things that we think make us happy or entertain us or make us feel
good are constructed for us by our masters? Who are our masters? Are we so foolish that perhaps we need a master?
You may have been led to believe that this is how brainwashing happens:
But that's ridiculous, this is how brainwashing happens in real life:
Everyone's having a great time. The best form of controlling your perceptions and ideas and feelings and what your resulting behaviors are is not
through torture - it's through pleasure. If you smile when you do as you're programmed, than you will gladly continue.
Oh but not you? You broke out of the box already did you?
Ok, since there are 3 types of people,
, one of the founders of modern public relations (aka propaganda), wrote some
fascinating books that you ought to at least glance at.
Crystallizing Public Opinion
being some of the best known.
Brainwashing is a tool, a technique that can be used to reach a goal. It may be used for good or evil. It can be used for selfish reasons or selfless
ones. Each person who guides others or conditions them to do something they want them to do decides why they are doing this, and what purpose they
wish to be served. Maybe some brainwashing is good, perhaps most is not.
Please read this article for additional articulation about types of manners that people are brainwashed into. It's not a perfect source of
information, none are, but it's a decent idea of different ways you and I are brainwashed everyday. I found it in a few minutes of searching
keywords. I'm in a hurry tonight.
Brainwashing Mind Control Techniques
I invite all ATSers to come into this thread if they'd like and to discuss how we are brainwashed, and hopefully this thread will go on for days with
a lot of really good contributions. I will add some stuff I've found over the last few months in here after I go back through my search history over
the next few days to give some good information worth noting.
If you want to discuss MK Ultra or Monarch, that's fine, but I'd like us to explore a wider range of this topic. Let's talk about things like how
modern apps (especially video games) are brainwashing tools being cleverly advertised to hook us and get us addicted and convince us to open wallets.
I bet most of you are not filthy rich yet you are blowing your money on things you don't need. Brand name products, entertainment sources, alcohol or
pharmaceuticals, even local events like parades or sporting games. Why exactly do we do this?
It's because we are brainwashed and controlled.
