Hey there, its been awhile, well over the past 2 months i have been watching and trying to figure out, how they manage to capture the attention of more than 500 million in america, i have been let to my very own assumption, that they are using Reverse Psychology on every single american out there, Obama keeps asking the people, what do you want to see US change...

What do they do they give him and all the other PTB the information they need to work out what will effect the country.

So he promises one thing ,and as our humaniterian instincts go we believe and trust that he wants to help, but this rarely happens .He won his vote by saying that he would pull back troops, and then less than a month runing said it would be looked at an pull some troops out over the next 16months, and you let them get away with it.

This is the Wiki Definition.

Reverse Psychology, -

is a persuasion technique involving the advocacy of a belief or behavior that is opposite to the one desired, with the expectation that this approach will encourage the subject of the persuasion to do what is desired: the opposite of what is suggested. This technique relies on the psychological phenomenon of reactance, in which a person has a negative emotional response in reaction to being persuaded, and thus chooses the option which is being advocated against. Reverse psychology is often used on children due to their lack of psychological understanding and higher rate of reactance. Reverse psychology can also prey on a person's ego, as when it is used, it can make the target feel incompetent; effectively persuading the person to perform the desired action. There are numerous examples of reverse psychology in fiction and cinema, including the well-known Looney Tunes cartoon "Rabbit Fire", where Bugs Bunny and Daffy Duck are each trying to convince Elmer Fudd it's the hunting season for the other species and not their own. After a back-and-forth with Bugs proclaiming "Duck season!" and Daffy "Rabbit season!", Bugs switches to say "Wabbit (rabbit) season!", to which Daffy begins saying "Duck season!"—even going to far as to exclaim "I say it's duck season, and I say fire!" Also in William Shakespeare's Julius Caesar Mark Antony uses reverse psychology to get the towns people to cause a mob.

In fiction Examples of reverse psychology are present in various stories and cartoons. In one of Joel Chandler Harris's Uncle Remus stories, Br'er Rabbit escapes from Br'er Fox by repeatedly pleading "Please, Br'er Fox, don't fling me in that briar patch." The fox does so, allowing the rabbit to escape. Reverse psychology occurs several times on The Simpsons. In the season 3 episode "Saturdays of Thunder", Homer has a conversation with his brain after reading a passage in Bill Cosby's parental-advice book Fatherhood: Homer's Brain: Don't you get it? You've gotta use reverse psychology. Homer: That sounds too complicated. Homer's Brain: OK, don't use reverse psychology. Homer: All right, I will!

I see that Wall Street seems to actually be controlling the world, so the banks....

BOMB Wall Street, this would surely cause major dissaster, if THEY can pull off 911, im sure there are enough people out there with the skills to actually level Wall Street.

Now Fellow People of the WORLD, i ask you to stop looking at what they want to do for you , and start looking at what you can do for you, only by us understanding that by being part of this NWO system things will never get better because we have to answer to someone and are being controlled by Currency and your earnings.

I say Don't vote for what...., what is the point, they tell you who to vote for and you are still gonna get someone that wants to control You and the world.

until we can stop MEDIA, we are never gonna conquer anything, because the uneducated are still going to beleive they are going to be alright if they buy a coke, or light a marlboro, people are so unaware of what is really happening out there, how we have been turned into slaves in our own capacity, and we have the choice to leave but it is at a huge price, - no new technology gadgets, or internet, or cell phones, tv, movies, radio, vehicles, because the money factor ...

Are you trying to persuade me or something?
Is this reverse psychology.

Or maybe it is a dubble reverse psychology scheme knowing full well that the first part of your OP would let people see through the second part. And in so doing being able to state your case.

Or maybe it is a triple reverse psychology scheme where you expect people to see through the duality of your post. In the hopes to humarise the subject and in so dong breed complacency.

Or Or Or. It is endless.

Just janking the chain a little bit.
Good post people should be aware of reverse psychology and how easily it can be used to control te masses. Through anticipated reactions guided by long standing and tested psychological models and ofcourse refined methods of delivery of actual subject.

My imput.

The media is for the most part not government controlled. Look at the various lawsuits over attempted government control and censorship for proof.

300 million in America btw, not 500.

stop looking at what they want to do for you , and start looking at what you can do for you,

Exactly- People are waiting on the president to fix things, as if he is some kind of superhuman...Not realizing that the president actually has NO say whatsoever in what happens to troops and major monetary systems, etc.

I also think it is partly because people love to have someone to blame when it all goes bad. The way I see the world now- No one wants to take on the responsibility for what is happening around them...

Then again, people are bombarded with so much stress these days,no wonder they feel they are taking on too much- and can't really handle more. I mean, most people now days are working two jobs just to get by. They have us by the balls-with DEBT. If there was no such thing as debt, we would not be sitting with the problems we have now. And the only reason we have debt, is because at the heart of the worlds monetary system, the is a privately owned bank...who steal our money, and then lend it back to us with alarming rates of interest.

and we have the choice to leave but it is at a huge price, - no new technology gadgets, or internet, or cell phones, tv, movies, radio, vehicles, because the money factor ...

I don't agree with you there- We can have those things- or similar technology, if we only paid attention to how things really work- look at pre-Sumerian civilizations, they lived so simply, yet had the most amazing & mind boggling technology out there.
We are just focused too much on the CONVENIENCE of the technology we have today.
