And thanks to organizations like SPLC and ADL, those "lone gunmen" have suddenly morphed into "lone wolf domestic extremists", aka veterans, constitutionalists, conspiracy theorists, patriots, tax protesters, free speech advocates, Ron Paul supporters and anyone else who's opposed to the planned globalist destruction of America....
What would it take for the same things to happen in the U.S. or any other Western Nation? I can tell you that after a few missed meals due to the price of food, people would start getting angry and begin looking for ways to feed themselves and their families.
"World War III will be a guerilla information war, with no division between military and civilian participation."
Capture their minds and their hearts and souls will follow - Psyop quote.
We were as hypnotized by the enemy's propaganda as a rabbit is by a snake. General Eric Von Ludendorf, German General Staff, 1918
Information Age communication-technologies ring the bell of propaganda age in an attack on the infobody, the shared presuppositions and myths of the rival and conflicting parts of the social system. The growth of communication tools, the dramatically accelerated flow of persuasive communication through the manipulation of symbols and basic human emotions is not only a system to entertain and inform, but to inject individuals with the values, beliefs, and codes of behavior, the Integration through Psychological Media into the social body.
Hyper state control mechanisms convey ideas that guide the focus of attention through language. Whatever you fix your attention on, you get more of. When subjects focus their attention, they have less of it left for external sensory stimuli as words paint pictures in their mind. The frame of perception influences meaning and the success of hypnotic induction. Hyper state control is a means of heightening motivation by programming the subconscious mind to work in active cooperation with implanted conscious desires and is therefore extremely effective in helping to create behavior modification.
Department of Psychology chairman at Colgate University, Dr. Estabrooks, one of the most authoritative sources stirring up fear of mind-controlled sixth columnists in wartime USA stated, "Only a people who refuse to permit themselves to sink into intellectual lethargy and conformity, only a people who question and think . . . can be sure that hypnosis--disguised or direct--will not undermine their freedom and rob them of their very lives."
Information is flowing faster than most people feel they can absorb or acquire the additional information needed to make decisions and to be able to control the outcome. This situation provides the ground for Electronic Warfare, tactical deception and Psychological Operations. To distinguish between information and propaganda becomes virtually impossible..
Infobody Biofeedback Modulation - Most individual social entities are not well equipped to complete complex tasks, but function well in the context of a social body as a macro-organismic insect population. Individuals might not be able to follow a coherent thought but they are perfectly able to make highly complex calculations regarding social status in respect to dress-codes, facial expression or nuances in language, by using their instinct and being imbedded in a supraintelligent biosystem. This model is in widespread use, although a part of the game is to pretend it is not.
Intelligent Pandemonium - Autonomous software application systems are called "Agents" or "Demons". The term demon is appropriate as digital demons are not directly controlled by a master program but rather invoked into actions by changes in their environment. Demons can form computational societies with autopoietic lifelike behaviors similar to insect colonies or other social systems. Just as in the traditional form, the digital demons are at once independent and programmed to respond to certain cues in specific situations and environments. Like their stellar counterparts they can serve or control. (Classic demonology lists an endless series of divisions where demons mediate the complexity of supercelestial information.)
Manipulation Patterns - Social influence programs seek to induce reaction, obedience with as little thought as possible in the target audience. Impulse for action comes directly from the depths of the unconscious and using deep persuasion is the instrument to attain this effect. The transformation of language as an instrument of the mind into symbols directly evoking feelings and reflexes, where words become "pure sound," is a deliberate devaluation of thought as the basic condition of the social organization causing serious dissociations. One of the most intriguing influences from outside of our awareness is subliminal psychodynamic activation. The "mere exposure effect" of an only marginally perceptible stimulus, also known as subliminal perceptual priming, is the effect on our preferences of a briefly flashed picture in a forced choice test. Especially as reinforcement, variations of the mere exposure effect have been demonstrated to activate emotional centers of the brain, without awareness.
Memory States - Once the perceptual information is forgotten, subjects retain information only about the meaning or interpretation. People tend to have relatively good memory for meaningful interpretations of information. This implies that when people are confronted with some material to remember it will facilitate their memory if they can place some meaningful interpretation on it. Mnemonic memory enhancement is using imagery keyword methods use of mental imagery, method of loci by associating items to be learned with a series of locations, and other strategies of organizing memory in chunks of narrative visualization.
Perceptive Expectations - Patterns of expectation are placing relevance in modes of interpretation. The idea of being influenced only by the facts rather than by preconceived notions is naive for there is no such thing as "facts". There is only a very selective subset of an overall mass of data. Being subjected to this subset allows one to classify and judge the relevance to the question at issue.
Persuasive Influence - Persuasion messages are designed to arouse or stimulate needs. It must cause an action or bring about an attitude. This requires that the message tell the target how to satisfy its needs by following the course of action. In order to get the action or attitude desired, the message must, in the opinion of the target, offer the best solution (or the only logical one) toward solving the problem addressed or in fulfilling target needs.
Persuasive Internalization - Education or Propaganda is the propagation of a set of beliefs. Beliefs are things known or believed to be true, as opposed to attitudes, which are evaluations of stuff that we think about. Beliefs are important precursors to both attitudes and behavior, but are often used or created after the fact to defend attitudes and behaviors we already own. It has been suggested that by merely directing thoughts to attitudes and beliefs with logical implications for one another, those attitudes and beliefs become more consistent. The term "propaganda" first documented in the early 17th century to increase church membership is now increasingly used in the sense of mass persuasion efforts manufactured by political entities that go beyond belief manipulation. Thought control methods combine compliance, persuasion, and propaganda tactics into a powerful form of coercive manipulation. Thought control that tries to replace the individual identity with another that the individual would not have freely chosen is supported by social isolation of the individual and therefore more readily accomplished in closed groups.
Senso-Linguistic Infiltration Programs (SLIP) - A belief commonly accepted is that if you are reasonably well informed and educated it is easy to fend off propaganda-attacks. On the contrary, it seems that if you cannot read you are less vulnerable to propaganda and intellectuals are the best targets of Perception Management, not only for their predictable worldviews but due to their implanted feeling of being immune. To read means to decode, to be infected by a virus. Classic terminology distinguishes two fronts for the battle for human minds: the First Front of mass indoctrination through censorship and propaganda and a Second Front of individual mind control. Huge interest is placed on creating an in-formed opinion, to form public opinion as a whole by a hypnotic web of "facts" with no apparent correspondence to reality. A routine practiced by illusionists and Perception Management cognitive engineers. Psychological Consolidation Activities by Committees on Public Information target the population in order to achieve a desired behavior which supports their objectives.
Social Styling - Desensitization through language abuse, propaganda and junk-information, as well as the elimination of individual ideas through repetition of chants and phrases or the inducement of dependence by introducing sports, games or TV shows with obscure rules, are part of a large set of social styling methods. Pumping up disorientation, susceptibility to emotional arousal is increased by depriving the nervous system through special diets of junk-food, prolonging mental and physical activity and withholding rest and sleep. False intimacy is created through emotionalism and the need to belong is exploited while suppressing resistance through peer pressure. Affirmation of lifestyle by denouncing other values and beliefs combined with encouraging blind acceptance and rejection of logic is achieved through complex incomprehensible doctrine.
Tactical Truth - Truth projection combined with operations security, cover and deception, and psychological operations is a standard element of Perception Management and military Information Peacekeeping. The frequently quoted, "first casualty of war is truth" is to be complemented by "truth is the invention of a liar". Projecting objectivity is an important advantage for persuasive influence, constructing authoritative frameworks of reality and using the resulting evidence is a highly tactical practice for Information Dominance. This process of truth construction is boosted by establishing authoritarian belief systems. It has also been observed in mainstream media coverage that having to deal with ambiguous information or evidence seems to trigger a tendency of dramatization and exaggeration which is more rooted in a group dynamic of having to cope with high uncertainty then any rational thought process.
Vast Active Living Intelligence System (VALIS) - Information has often been considered as both space and being: A living holographic information system, a Vast Active Living Intelligence System crossbanding with human hosts. The idea of a living info-space is analogous to an understanding of music as a complex spatial dynamic structure. Sound space is created through impulse patterns, rhythm, within which interactions spatially expand and interact. This harmonically structured code is then sometimes seen as triggering the influx of entities, similar to invoking demons. (Numerically structured cosmology was understood in relation to canonical proportions.)

Awesome Post PT, S&F, love reading what you have to say. Let's hope you aren't one of one hundred fakes or misinfo agents
Would like to post an observation, it seem like every government i have observed (far from all) in the world either voluntarily or involuntary causing their people to protest, if nearly all parts of the world were protesting at once, could this cause a global shift? for example look at Europe and middle east, parts of US and Australia is about to go into nation wide protest over a carbon tax. Even though the protests are not for the same issues, could this cause a world shift to protest like you described in your post?
