Why is it, that our society has become obsessed with being young (inexperienced) and being stupid (not caring about anything other than gratification/entertainment).
The more I think about this, the more I realize how correct Mr. Ferguson is, how many times have you tried to explain something to someone only to be met with "who cares?" or "well that's boring, so anyway Timberlake..."
Why have we become a society obsessed with being (or at least acting) young and stupid?
Why has age and experience become something to fear, and try to avoid, rather then something to aspire to?
The answer is pretty simple, we have been guided in that direction, you are bombarded everyday with the messages and images telling you to look younger, care less, and be as self centered as possible.
A public that is unaware and uncaring of its surroundings, is by far the most dangerous thing to a country's progress, so why has this been done? is it all for the sake of the mighty (well once mighty) dollar?
I can't help but think its intentional, but hey i am one of those wack jobs who cares so my opinion is worthless to the average person and there unrelenting desires to discuss tiger woods.

"It is therefore possible to manipulate the nervous system of a subject by pulsing images displayed on a nearby computer monitor or TV set. For the latter, the image pulsing may be imbedded in the program material, or it may be overlaid by modulating a video stream, either as an RF signal or as a video signal." -- US Patent and Trade Office, Patent #6,506,148, 2/14/03
"Neuroscientists have shown that environmental experiences significantly shape the developing brain because of the plasticity of its neuronal connectivity. Thus, repeated exposure to any stimulus in a child's environment may forcibly impact mental and emotional growth, either by setting up particular circuitry ("habits of mind") or by depriving the brain of other experiences. While appropriate stimuli — close interaction with loving caregivers; an enriched, interactive, human language environment; engrossing hands-on play opportunities; and age-appropriate academic stimulation — enhance the brain's development, environments that encourage intellectual passivity and maladaptive behavior (e.g., impulsivity, violence), or deprive the brain of important chances to participate actively in social relationships, creative play, reflection and complex problem-solving may have deleterious and irrevocable consequences. In addition, trying to plunge youngsters into academic learning, when they should be personally investigating the three-dimensional world, risks bypassing important aspects of development."
Brain waves, which normally operate in the Beta state while we are awake, are drastically reduced to a level similar to sleep while watching Television. Herbert Krugman conducted a study in 1969 designed to discover the effect of TV on the human brain. In The Perfect Machine: TV and the Nuclear Age, Joyce Nelson describes the study. What Krugman found was that the left hemisphere of the brain, the analytical, critically thinking side of the brain is tuned out while watching TV. The right hemisphere, which is the emotional, non critical side continues to function unaltered. Krugman concluded his study by saying that, "...the mode of response to television is more or less constant and very different from the response to print." Krugman continues, "[Television is] a communication medium that effortlessly transmits huge quantities of information not thought about at the time of exposure."
Reliable reports from MANY different sources indicate that as many as TEN MILLION individuals many be ACTIVE subjects/victims of these kinds of mind control activities, and huge quantities of hard documentation on a great many of these projects DOES exist.
However, in addition to these kinds of mind control operations, there are ALSO mind control and mind manipulation activities that target MASSES of people in large geographical regions at the same time. Indeed, there is VERY strong evidence that the operators of HAARP for example, have ever since HAARP's earliest days intended that it be used for, among many other things, GLOBAL mind control.
There is in FACT much evidence to show that HAARP is NOW being used for just such utterly evil purposes by the United States federal government.
Of course, there are many other EM/RF technologies and systems which are, or may be, applied to mass-scale mind, mood, thought and consciousness control/manipulation operations: such as the nationwide "GWEN" (Ground Wave Emergency Network) system, certain ELF and ULF transmitter systems, and so on (such as your TV set, even IF it's turned OFF!) see also : Black Boxes and Marble Memorials, Cable T. V. Snooping
Another way to manipulate and "regulate" the minds and consciousness of a mass of people at a VERY basic, fundamental level is to CONTROL the population's PRIMARY sources of INFORMATION. This is one of the MOST powerful ways to shape the collective consciousness of the public, and it is CLEAR that many mass media outlets in the United States are both willingly and un-wittingly aiding and abetting the manipulation of our minds by the government, and are assisting the FedGov in carrying out many social-engineering agendas.

Say what you will about this guy, but he has had an almost EERIE knack for calling out and identifying TPTB over the years, and all their sinister plans and schemes.
He has an interesting take on things, and as I mentioned above, he has often been ahead of the curve in exposing the power and control system, and what the individuals behind it's latest plans are...
the video embedded was removed.
So I went out and found it. part 1 of 5, watch it while you can.
