Which brings me to my point about MKULTRA - could such a program be utilized to make the weaker members of our society systematically self destruct?
Combine poor diet and a bad living environment, substandard television programmes and constant reinforcement of illness, death and futility...add poor
quality street drugs....and I see a large increase in suicide rates, criminal cases and genocide within certain members of the populace.
Who would this affect? Not just the "lower classes" - but those people who were already hardwired for self destruction. The strong, regardless of
social or economic position, will fight through the process - while those who have already accepted failure will slowly disappear from the culture.
No need to label anyone by race, creed, or ethinicity - it doesn't matter.
Here is what I have to say on this, from the perspective of a historian..
The thing you see before you, the problems within society is essentially, things have been good for us. We have our fancy cars, new clothes, huge
houses, flat screen plasma HD TV's. We have no reason to complain right?
Or.. is it.. we do not have TIME to complain?
The Middle class came about with the French revolution, the middle class lead that war and started the new government because there was economic
issues, political scandal, wars.. they lost their status and took it back...
America is different, our middle class emerged and took up the BULK of our population. while 1% of the people hold 10% of the wealth, the rest is
divided among the millions in the middle class.. any one making over 40k a year is middle class..
Middle class comes with BILLS.. bills, like credit card debt, mortgages, car payments, every day expenses, gas, children, school, college, retirement,
health care, utilities, and of course luxuries..
A middle class man cannot leave the office to demand change, most are ignorant in national affairs, they watch CNN maybe 20 mins a day, here what the
guy has to say and go along with that opinion...
Now, is that "control"? .. I don't think so. I don't think it was intentionally set up that way anyways. It is certainly the reason that our
government can now rape our constitution, but they simply exploit a trend that was already being established.. Why do we care about the economy so
much as far as general household income? Debt? Unemployment? Becuase people that are not busy, are dangerouse people.. now only the rich have the
time and money and nothing better to do then play politics, in their own self important way, they influence the government, run for office and become
our leaders, thought hey care only for them selves, though they are rich and don't need the job.. imo, they are there for self important reasons to
better their own lively hood..
There is not a great leader among us today. There has not been since WW2.
Our government is not as organized and centralized as one might think, right now I see our government as being the weakest in over a century..
Nations with an ignorant populace WILL FALL... degeneration WILL bring an nation to its knees..
The USSR knew this, the built university cities... it ended up breeding radical ideas and where stopped.. but they knew their people had to be
The United States had (has perhaps, though pathetically disgraceful) a strict guide line of lessons kids had to learn in school.. our focus was Math
and Science, lastly was History and Language development (including English) This was done to make our people smart, but bureaucracy will destroy
education, as it has, as it did in the USSR, it has here.. we are sinking in the world stage, our schools are a disgrace.
I am probably rambling, trying to collect my thoughts together to make the general point...
Our nation Cannot implement "mind control" for one general reason, it would be self destruction...
The problem you see, the middle class, the time restraining pressures, THAT I believe is SOCIAL DECLINE which, imo, has been carrying on its cycle
since the Industrial Revolution..
People care only for them selves, there is no sense of community.. when you make a decision it is not "how will this effect my neighbors?" no its
all about YOURSELF...
This is apparent in so many ways.. from the guy in the middle of a library shouting into his Nextel (god I hate those things..) .. to the person that
lets there dog crap in someone lawn then walk away.. to the people who splurge their 401k's on a new fancy car, then to have their own children,
flesh and blood, lock them up in a run down old folks home because they don't want the burden. To the people who murder indiscriminately, to the
lazy society in which we became, to the way we mutilate the environment to build a new super wal mart because you don't want to drive the extra 5
miles to go to the other super Wal-Mart.. to fact that kids are killing kids in school, kids raping kids in school.. to violence, drugs, alcoholism
that plagues youth.. to the fact that you can't let your own child ride their bike around the block anymore with out the risk of them being snatched
up by some pervert..
Ask any one older person, they will tell you the worlds an F'd up place compared to when they grew up.. and their parents would tell you that the
world got messed up in their day, and their parents the same..
Humanity is on a constant decline.. usually it is set in place and kept in check through wars, famine, plagues.. however we have, at least, tried,
We can no fly food to support 5 million in a land that can only hold 5 thousand..
We do not fight wars like we used to.. so populations go unchecked..
We have vaccines and instant quarantines, so the population is not culled..
The weak, the demented, the lame and the generally ignorant people of our race mate and multiply at levels far surpassing the more successful people
of our race..
So, combine an unchecked population = significant strain on the government = useless education system = decline of moral values = decline of spiritual
connection and care for others = destruction of the environment
What do you get? A recipe for disaster.. which at this point imo is needed..
I do not think any single government caused this.. I do not think any single government COULD cause this..
I believe this is a track humanity has been on, and will be on, for a very long time, you see things getting worse because they ARE getting worse,
they will continue.. corporations aid it, but they are held up by the people, the government aids it because they look after them selves, because when
they grew up it is what they are conditioned to do.. it is our society, our way of life.. and we do this our selves, self destruction because we have
no traditions to hold on to, no guidelines to respect, we are essentially a blind, ignorant and unchecked population.
I hope my points came across clearly, being such a large subject to cover.
