Are you being programmed to over react and rebel?
That was one of the questions rolling around in my head as I settled down to go to sleep. Having noticed an absurd amount (in my opinion) of alarmist
and reactionary behavior the past week, and having a neuron or two nudged from reading a web bot report; I can only conclude that the answer is yes.
Admittedly this is all theory.
However, the evidence supporting it is kind of glaring, once you step back and look at it. I do a lot of writing, mostly science fiction for my own
amusement, though I do have a small following.
So I know words have power, and depending on how you string them together, how you place written
emphasis; and when spoken add audible cues, you can influence emotions and inspire action.
A long time ago I read a science fiction book that used such 'verbal programming' to add stressors to a population under a regime so they would rise
up and rebel. The brief and simple gist of it was:
"It's not what you say, but how you say it."
The protagonists of the story went on to seed the population with buzzwords and subtle linguistic pointers that when used or 'invoked' (if you will)
caused the population to have a 'knee jerk' reaction. So as the story went on the population became more and more sensitized to the buzz words, that
even when the 'bad guys' used the same words, it focused the population's ire on the 'bad guys.' So when the 'revolution events' occurred the
population was programmed to rise up against the regime.
Now it seems to me, that a similar sort of 'linguistic programming' is being applied to the (please forgive the generalization,) alarmist
reactionary (paranoid) population in an attempt to ensure riots and rebellion -will- occur. It's also rather evident (to me anyways) that the
linguistic 'keys' that a goodly number of people have been tuned to, are getting are getting turned. Their buttons are getting pushed if you will,
leading up to the point where they become less and less likely to act and respond in a rational, calm, thinking manner.
Or if you will, they are being set up to die on cue.
So the question that begs to be asked is to what end and how?
Well there are no lack of potential conspiracies that could benefit from such programming. I also suspect you could think of half a dozen without
trying too hard, after all you have likely been exposed to them on a daily basis.
So for the moment let us focus on how.
First you have to understand the group that you want to incite, which means they likely are researching (for example) the 'alarmist reactionary
activists group,' and then building a 'lexicon' of key words and issues. Once they build up the lexicon, they pick out the top 'linguistic keys'
from it and start building 'test sentences' and start feeding them out into speeches, documents and the like; after which they 'grade' the results
and then refine the next set of 'sentences.' Rinse and repeat until the perfect 'sentences' provoke the desired response on a ninety percent
Next, select individuals are fed entire 'paragraphs' of these programming sentences to gauge reaction or if you will provoke action.
Say for example, an underground radio/web activist reporter that is followed by your 'target group.' This person gets hit with the programmed text,
and having been conditioned (if you will), reacts by jumping at shadows, finding the bogeyman on his doorstep, etc. Then the person while in the
'grips' of their programming makes a series of reactionary 'broadcasts' where the 'verbal keys' are sent out and with either planted
'evidence,' or if you will along with misinterpreted facts or events in a neat ready to eat package. Of which 'programs' their audience, adding
in more 'stressors' to the target group. (Trojan Horse anyone?)
Then the results are 'graded' and the next paragraph or chapter is constructed. Or they may just let the 'stressor' level die down only to build
it back up, further conditioning the target group. Much like Pavlov's dog.
So far this is just a theory, and as such could be wrong, right or even incomplete.
However, it seems valid to me.
