Really, what the F**K has happened to the US American Critical Thinking, and Reasoning abilities? I saw the youtube video below on another thread. It blew me away. I've seen these type of shows before, and the actor in it has done several 'rip off the average American" documentary before, but this???, it gave me chills.

I've been reading the threads talking about forced vaccination, and I've always felt confident that a few of us would stand up, and say, no. However, watching the video below makes me think a few of us will get tazered; because we each individually stand lonely in a crowd, and say, "Leave those people alone; they said, NO".

Have US Americans really fallen to this level of complacency? Are most of us obedient lap dogs?

I'm not in the same boat as most of You are; as I've already got my butt, and gear out of the States, but I want to come back when the SHTF. I want to come back when I may not be able to get out again; so I can help, but what is left to help?

dazed, and confused,

-Sancho

We generally tend towards complacency. Which largely explains our isolationism in earlier years that wouldn't have been broken had we not been attacked. And as for critical thinking I would argue that is a largely unused thing for most of humanity.

See the America I remember growing up in was no fairly tale. We, Our forefather's prided themselves on the ability to use Critical Thinking, and there were great Values.

The proof is in the fact America BUILT the 21st century. You leave the USA, and travel, everyone wants to emulate the States from yester year. When it really was the land of the free.

I don't believe what happened in that video would have been allowed 50 years ago. I don't think the pride, and self value people had back then would have allowed it.

My gawd, this wasn't out in the middle of nowhere, it wasn't in a quiet area where you could get hurt, and nobody know; this was a busy street.

Something has happened to The People. Something bad, like a Snow White sleep.

Well, I don't know if the NWO is resposible directly, part of the picture, or indirectly, but the entire Western world has basically lost its way psychologically, spiritually, and morally.

To my mind, the fundamental piece of the puzzle is the breakdown of the FAMILY. Traditionally, people lived in extended families of multigenerations helping each other. Although this was not always an ideal condition and could be uncomfortable, it seems to be the normal historical pattern. This went out the window and we had the "nuclear family" up through the 50s or 60s.

Around that time, the "nuclear family" itself began to break down due to divorce. In the 1950s and before, divorce was very rare. Now its over 50%. I know there are plenty of unhappy, unhealthy lifelong marriages (my grandparents had one of them), but too often the decision to divorce is made at the drop of the hat. And too few times are the psychological effects on children considered. Divorce is always framed as an issue between the mother and the father, with the assumption that the kids will turn out all right somehow. To even question this is "politically incorrect," and there thus have been no serious studies on it. But I think this conclusion is based in selfishness of the parents rather than any attempt at finding the true impact on kids.

The economy's obsessive, relentless drive towards "efficiency" has meant that a single income is no longer enough to support most families, so most kids don't get to spend as much time bonding with stay-at-home mom as they did in past generations. Instead, they are shuttled between harried, overworked and separated parents, as well as mass daycare. Again, although its politically incorrect to say this, I see this as profoundly unhealthy.

Materialism and greed pumped nonstop by the MSM plus isolation, the breakdown of support groups like family, extended family, and real local communities, have radically altered the psychospiritual condition of the average person. We are just now waking up to the consequences of what that means for a whole generation, and by and large the picture is not pretty.

Some say the whole thing was orchestrated by the NWO as part of a depopulation agenda or a "divide and conquer" stategy to break the very core nature of "the citizenry" and isolate people in little bubbles of greed and lonliness, where they will be less effective, can't work together, and won't breed. There may be truth to this, or it may be simply partially true and partially the result of simple human greed run amok when faced with an overabundance of consumer goods after WWII, like ants swarming over a pile of sugar. My opinion is its a mix of both. Either way, it ain't a pretty picture.

Um, look at the history of the United States. The civil rights movement and what happend there is a good example. And it's worth noting that mankind tends to remember only the what he wants to remember and even that is distorted.

This is a psy-ops on the viewers.It takes an artifucial situation(when was the last time you saw a child kidnapped in the middle of the street?)and then actually enforces the non action of behavior by the ambiguity of the situation. because I have never seen a child kidnapped in the middle of the street and if i did i would assume it was one of theuir parents.so this film is made to make you feel bad about ourselves by using a contrived situation that is very rare and so rare that you could count on it never happening, so discount these findings, I saw one where the mother grabbed her child out of a crocodiles mouth with only her bare hands, and she didnt think twice, most times your iinstincts and or body take over if it is not in a social agreement setting before hand so this is just a way to make you feel bad about all of us. screw him he serves no purpose but that.

You made excellent points. I was reading the first part thinking why the change in family, why the increase in divorce, why had we lost as you mentioned psychologically, spiritually, and morally; My why's were answered as I read along. You mentioned GREED, and MATERIALISM.

I know the amount of taxes has led many to work, but again it is the consumerism. The need to feed on gadgets, and gismos..

I am a firm believer in the NWO orchestrating this from long ago, as you mentioned. They've created a culture where we only amount to consumer's; who have a need to shop like a junkie has for a fix.

Sure, the civil rights issue. Everyone stood up. Not just black, but white alike. It took effort to wake people, but they stood up. I think things have changed.

I'd like to believe it was just a psyops, but I just don't know. Really I would, but I've seen many times where OUR fellow Americans have stood by the way side.......They say, or think "don't get involved" "someone else will do it" "Not my business" It's just a horrible thought.

the family breakdown was a programmed behaviuor they insstilled in us, first they lower wages so both have to work while luring you on television with all the things you do not have, both work and they call it good thing make same money but both work, then they get your children to brain wash as early as they can, then all you do is workand any love like at first does not last over what 7 to ten years maximum 1 to 3 many times and boom you want soem thing else, plus the women were targeted that having a career was a good thing and raising children was a drag boring and all that , then the divorce laws that basically make the man a slave and a destitute well they manuevered the whole thing plus the homosexuality ,angle free sex and encouraged promiscuity, the younger a person is when they have sex the less likely they will be to form a stable bond that is conducive to rasing children.i was taught this ,I didnt think it up myself,hahaha

well dont confuse this with the crowd syndrome where 30 or so people stand around watching soem one who is in need of help or he will die.i experienced it myself and i was not happy luckily he came around on his own. they were two carney at a traveling ride show and one of them had the idea to play a joke on his partner and xhocked him with one of those big generaters they use for the rides , and that guy went down and out and looked like he was almos tgone but he came around in 5 or ten seconds happily his freind the moron ran off, but yes the whole crowd froze all of us hopefully if it went on longer the spell would have broken.

I cannot argue with anything you've said. It is correct. However, your argument laid out the ground work to something similar as in the video being a reality.

Do you feel trust, or faith in the local people around you?

Logged in specifically in order I could Star your post.

You've touched on many issues which have a bearing on the problems we face todays, as societies

but as you say, our strength (regardless of which society we're a member of) has always been the family. And then it moves up to our larger family -- the neighbourhood. And from there, we used to strengthen our community via involvement in yet a larger 'family' -- that of our suburb, town, city, State, Nation. Our involvement carried through. Our sense of family carried through.

Call them NWO or Illuminati or as I do, the Usual Suspects -- those who planned 50 years ago what we're experiencing today -- those who planned a Zionist state before WW1 had occurred, before WW2, and who achieved their objectives via these destructive conflicts. And who right now are planning events which will impact on your children and grandchildren.

Destruction of the family is the destruction of society's roots. That's why 'family' has been targeted, is targeted.

Values learned around the dinner table used to carry through into the street, the city, the nation.

Destroy the family unit, separate the parents, make divorce easy -- introduce destructive elements within the family such as porn, subliminals in tv, advertising, movies and sex, sex, sex, greed, consumerism, materialism, lack of respect, foul language and blasphemism in tv, movies, books, push up prices so that no one wage can match them and foster attitudes of entitlement, add drugs, alcohol --- and you have what we see today: single mothers and fathers, hopelessness, depression, sense of failure, guilt and kids suffering exactly the same emotions by the time they're five years old.

The adults use substances to try to chase away the overwhelming depression and kids retreat into fantasy, into online games, into 'saviour' scenarios involving 'aliens' who'll come like Superman and Santa Claus to 'fix it all up', etc. Then they 'graduate' to drugs, alcohol, etc. And on it goes.

Once, Dad went to work. Often it wasn't fancy work -- but he took pride in supporting his family. He didn't waste too much time fantasising about silicone-boobed 'celebritites', he didn't mourn the fact he hadn't become a 'big pop star' .. and he lived within his means and impressed the wisdom of doing so upon his family. People were encouraged to save for a rainy day, to lend a hand to those who needed it, to respect their elders, to respect themselves, to pride themselves on their honesty, reliability, dependability, sense of responsibility, co-operation. Those were words teachers used in report-cards when they wanted to praise a future asset to society.

The United States has been hit hither and thither almost since its conception. It's planned destruction has been ongoing from the outset. The mobs were there from the outset. The swindlers were there, the whores and pimps, the traders in lives, the poisoners, the liars, the seekers of power. But the US held together because of family-values. Sounds corny, but it's true. And the Usual Suspects knew that, they've always known it. Which is why 'family' has been the main target.

If you want to find the major degraders of US (and other) society, look at the influence of movies, tv, computer. These, more than any other single element, created the rot at the root of American society. These are what bred envy, greed, materialism, ridiculous sense of entitlement, dissatisfaction. And these --- envy, greed, materialism, sense of entitlement and dissatisfaction --- are what lie behind the break-up of marriages, the rifts between children and their parents, between generations, etc. They're what created the 'Me' attitudes, rather than 'We'.

At first, movies, tv, computers, were hailed as beneficial to society, and so they can be. At first, the 'educational' benefits were touted .. and it was true, they are great tools.

However, look at the uses to which movies, tv and computers were put by those who ALWAYS intended them as tools of destruction: pornography, propaganda, advertising, mind-control, blatant lies (about history, world events, anthropology, archaeology) etc. These mediums are used to 'form and shape' opinions within the shell of empty 'entertainment. And they do.

Society became 'visually orientated' rather than thinkers. Society was programmed through movies, tv, computers, to LOOK .. often to simply stare vacantly. You see it all around -- people LOOKING, blankly. They LOOK at each other, at anything colourful, at anything that moves. People expect life to entertain them. Life has become one big screen.

Once upon a time, 'staring' was considered ill-mannered. Now, it's normal.

Passive looking has replaced thinking and doing.

People's minds have themselves become 'screens'. And it's exploited, of course it is. This is the 'harvest' of all that planning and scheming.

Can the US (and other nations) be put back together again ? Sad to say, the only way to do so, most probably -- is for society to be destroyed right back to the roots -- for all the screens to be destroyed in a world-changing catastrophe. That's what it will take -- for men and women to be thrown on their own resources and forced to struggle to put a bit of food in their offsprings' mouths -- for family to be clung-to, protected, valued more than anything else, because without it there is no survival. And then again the rebuilding of what was .. families joining to become groups, then small communities, then towns, then a nation.

The cure will hurt. People won't seek the cure. It will have to be forced upon them in most instances.

I used to think Americans on the whole were very astute observers. I've long since changed that view, and am reminded the degree of brainwashing and dumbing down that happened with the whole 911 and Iraq War fiasco.

It's very sad, but something you just have to be compassionate towards, but there's a difference between innocence and ignorance I guess, so it's more than just sad, it's a shame.

That's odd that you posted this because I was just thinking about this very thing today. I think that many Americans are very complacent, and I believe that is because most people are too afraid to stand up for anything for fear of losing what they do have.

Good post by the way, I've enjoyed many of your threads and comments. When it comes to spotting corruption you seem to be on top of it.

Not to "profile", but its interesting that the two dudes most likely to be negatively profiled by law enforcement (now don't get steamed and ruin this thread, coppers, lol) were the two willing to get involved and help. Mr. and Mrs. Whitebread America just walked on by.

Well said, funny how anything good, or beneficial is a double edged sord. It can be used to hurt, or help. Too bad the PTB have control of it for now.

Yes, there really is a good reason TV's have ***viewer programming****

Yes, I cannot disagree. Quite frankly, that sucks things have swayed so far that we will HURT to get better.

On another note you mentioned the family unit, and small communities; these are keys to survival. They are the keys to a healthy society.

What ah, so the brown man wasn't good enough for you to point out.....


No, only joking. It was two black men, and a Latino. You just won the trifecta(sp) of criminal profiling.

In all seriousness I was on that from the word go. I was wondering if anyone else would notice that.

Considering most of the USA is white is it not racial profiling of blacks, and Latino's?

I think people are overall scared by differences.

Did you notice the TV dudes reaction??? I don't think he would of been so fast as to say TV TV TV TV had it been white dudes.

I am truly humbled before your presence, and yet, at the same time, I am jealous of how concisely put your knowledge of the subject matter was portrayed.

Thank you.


To add, I am currently reading an introductory book to a series of books called, "The Great Books of the Western World." In this book, the author criticizes the "specialized occupational" education system we have today, and how liberal arts education has taken a fall.

The list of authors in this series include people like: Aristotle, Plato, Descartes, Archimedes, et cetera.

Reading these works are the means to become a great critical thinker.

With what you have stated about families, in tandem with this educational problem, we have contributing factors to what we see today! Amazing how it all fits together, right?

Anyway. ttyl

This is both a very good thread, and a very depressing one also.

I feel a loss of innocence when trying to come to grips with what's happened to the promise that is / was humanity.

What utterly squandered potential, what a total waste.

What we could have done and maybe, just maybe, could still do..
