The conditioning of the population is a pretty basic simple process...
When you go to school you are conditioned, through discipline, schedule, control and competition.
Discipline (form of control) teaches you to obey authority figures and except them as your controler...So in adult life you will listen to your
government, and except stupid # like the govs version of 9-11, without question.
You are taught that resistance to "authority" brings punishment, continued in adult life with prisons and COPS shows on TV.
Schedule (class times etc..) conditions us to except the 9-4 adult lifestyle of producing unnecessary garbage for mass consumption to support the
lifestyles of the rich and not so famous.
It emphasises strict adherence to instructions from an "authority".
You must be here at this time, you must do as I say, you must not question these instructions.
It creates the need of having someone instruct you as to what to do. So will always look to an "authority" for your answers and you become reliant
on the state for survival.
Competition (sports/tests) pretty obvious really. The ruling elite needs us to compete with each other, rather than cooperate with each other.
We are naturally cooperative. Have you noticed in a disaster everyone comes together and cooperates to get things done? It's because in times of
high stress/shock our true nature takes over and we forget our conditioning for a while.
When you've got the masses competing with each other for their very lives,
they will have no time to notice what is really going on. So those in power can get away with things like 9-11.
Our view of the World is shaped and manipulated via the media to appear as "they" want it to.
Because of what you were taught in school, or rather not taught, you can only understand one reality. Anything outside of that reality, that
contradicts what you were taught in school, is at best ignored if not outright dismissed.
The bad thing is we our selfs perpetuate the myths, we ridicule people who can live outside the box and not just follow the leader, like we're
Most people can't even allow themselves to believe they've been lied to by the very people they have "worshipped" (pledge of allegiance) since
As soon as you question anything about the gov you are labelled anti-american, or un-patriotic (what's that anyway, more worshipping of false
idols?). Or a Commie or gosh! a lefty (like they're soo much worse than fascists and the oh so lovely neo-nazi right
And the best one, they accuse you of "hating the government"
Maybe if the Germans had "hated" their government in the 30's WWII would not have happened (well, at least not until the west found another
excuse). The control mechanisms used then are used now.
Our basic conditioning and black and white understanding of the World is further enhanced through the media/movies/music...
The gov doesn't have to do much other than control peoples perception of current events. They try to keep those events in the front of our
attention, by ramping up the emotion factor, so we forget about what's happened in the past. Because if you really look at what governments have
done in the past there is no way you could trust them now.
But for some reason we make up every excuse for the gov we can come up with. We forget the scandals and keep on worshipping the "beast".
