I have mixed feelings about this. Obviously I'm a U.S. citizen and went through the public brainwashing system, so bear with me.
I think many of her points have to do with the fact that we're teaching the children to value community over the individual. I actually sort of agree
here. I think there should be a balance between the individual and the community, and don't see that as a disorder; however, there does seem to be an
ulterior motive to this programming, and that's to break down the individuals will to strive for excellence.
I see this from more than one perspective. If you consider the population growth over the 20th century, and how the rich, first-world country like the
U.S. exploited the vulnerabilities of other nations to pretty much steal a chunk of their resources and time + energy through various deceptive
techniques, and brute force of military, than perhaps this is a good thing in all actuality. I say this from the standpoint that perhaps a large
portion of the resources needed to keep this model of civilization going as is has already been used up, and also that if the socioeconomic status of
a nation does inversely correlate to the fertility rate, being richer countries have less people in successive generations, than perhaps a model of
global communism is best for the earth. I do not, however, know this to be the case, coming from the perspective of population overgrowth and the
depletion of vital resources.
We're told this from international organizations constantly, but .. ultimately it comes down to this question : Are we being deceived by the ruling
class for our own good, or are we being deceived and played based on our emotions for the purpose of global enslavement? To be honest, and this may be
because of my situation living here in the states, and also having gone through the public indoctrination system, I am still on the fence towards this
I think this lady was stunningly insightful for seeing how the psychology was used against us, but also perhaps she was unable to transcend her
traditional notions of state sovereignty and such. A world community or government is certainly the wave of the future, if civilization does not
collapse first. The question I have, is whether the people truly do need to be controlled via the centralization of authority, ie government, or if
we're truly ready to govern ourselves and live in an open global community.
Sometimes I think that we are slowly learning, and perhaps could govern ourselves, but then I realize that my view is skewed by the fact that I live
in a very civil, rich country of the country, and when I go to other, less fortunate areas of the state, I witness the truth that the average
individual is dumb, demoralized, and a bit barbaric, imo. There's a lot of layers to sort through all this mess and have any type of truly objective
viewpoint, imo. I struggle with a lot of these questions, and switching perspectives, and attempting to integrate all this observational data on a
