No need for lengthy intros here. Simply put, this thread serves the purpose of exposing the plots seen in society today; the deliberate methods used by the powers that be to keep the populace in line. If you have any background in conspiracy theories, you probably already know what to expect from this post. All of the following points could easily make good threads by themselves, but I just thought it would be rather important to take all these ideas and place them all in one centralized location for easy reference and greater overall impact. Many of these points will seem obvious; some are certainly more speculative. Regardless, if you feel I've missed something, speak up! Also, understand that I will be keeping this rather to-the-point, not including any links; if something interests you, feel free to seek out the truth yourself. Now please, read on.

THE ELEMENTS OF OPPRESSION........

MULTICULTURALISM
I assumed that this one would spark the most discord, which is why I decided to put it first and get it out of the way. You see, whether or not you actually believe that "race is an illusion" (I, personally, do not), I think it's fair to say that racial unrest is a huge problem that the system uses to advance their agenda. Basically, it goes like this: different groups of people are forced together against their will. One of these groups (Whites) are brainwashed to hate themselves; all other groups are brainwashed to actually believe that Whites are responsible for all their problems. And I'm not even going to get into the matter of crime statistics. Now anyway, I ask you: can you honestly not see how this would be problematic? I mean, letting different groups of people have their own space and be in control of their own destinies seems to work just fine.......so just why does the system seem to be so vehemently against this idea?

PORN
I assert that if you can't see what the problem is with porn, then you are a damned fool. This phenomenon seems to exist only to degrade the very nature of all involved, reducing them to little more than animals. I've heard of the supposed "positive" effects that porn has on society; personally, I think it's nonsense and pure propaganda. Those behind porn only seek to get you to waste your time and money, all the while corrupting your mind in ways you probably cannot imagine.

ABORTION
Yet another wonderful thing that the powers that be have brought us. Aside from the act itself, obviously, it seems like the problem with abortion is that it promotes promiscuity while discouraging responsibility. It also serves to greatly weaken both paternal as well as maternal instincts - especially the latter, obviously. Furthermore, I ask that you think about this: if a woman is literally willing to pay a large sum of money to let a stranger kill her baby, then I think it's fair to say that the system pretty much has her in the palm of their hand. It's really just that simple. Enough said.

GENDER UNREST
Put simply, the media seeks to get males to regard females as pieces of meat, while teaching females to fear males. The way the former works should be rather clear to you all by now - all young females are instilled with the obsession of vanity from day one; they're taught to place an extremely high priority on their looks - infinity more than males are. In turn, males are consistently taught to see females as nothing but soulless whores; obviously, the "sex industry" is largely to blame for this. The latter of my two points - getting females of all ages to fear males - is apparently a bit more subtle, yet nonetheless particularly interesting. Oddly, it seems as if most people overlook this entirely. Now without getting too far into this, I'll just ask you one simple question: why is it that the media would have you believe that literally all sex offenders are male? Females committing acts such as child molestation happens, probably much more than you would think, yet the media says absolutely NOTHING about this, instead insisting that males take all the blame. Why do you think that is? This all puts a serious strain on society and yes, I am convinced that it is entirely deliberate.

TAXATION
This one is just too obvious. "Work your 40 hours a week, citizen - and then pay up! You've got ghetto trash to support and Zionist wars to fund!" Really, need I say more?

PSYCHOLOGY
If you still think psychology is a force for good, I suggest you wake up. It really does seem as if many - perhaps all, as far as I know - in this field have an agenda, apparently disregarding objectivity in favor of promoting their own interests. This includes an apparent ongoing attempt to normalize sexual perversion, particularly.......you know, I really don't want to get into that (not now, at least). Meanwhile, anyone who doesn't fit their preconceived concept of "normality" is kept in line with a steady diet of mind-bending poison (also known as "prescription drugs"). And just what's this I've heard about trying to label independent thinkers as "mentally ill"? Really, that should tell you enough.

URBANIZATION
I'm sure that most never even consider this one, yet it's a big problem these days. It can basically be summed up as the act of deforestation and general misuse of the planet in order to create these unnatural dystopias known as "cities". Many consider this "progress" -- I assert that it is the exact opposite.

RELIGION
"Fools regard religion as true; the wise regard it as false; rulers regard it as useful". All one needs to do is observe the ways of the Abrahamic faiths to see that they simply
have no place in a civilized mind. Perverse, hypocritical, nonsensical garbage. Of course, teachings regarding the afterlife do a good job of keeping people in line, threatening them with eternal torment (LITERALLY) if they dare resist. Well personally, I am not that stupid.

ALCOHOL
It's never argued that alcohol is a major contributor to many serious problems seen in the world today. This makes one wonder why it's readily available and so aggressively promoted. On the other hand, marijuana is illegal. Personally, I find that strange.

POLICE / THE LEGAL SYSTEM
One has to wonder why law enforcement officials seem so lazy regarding certain matters (such as gang violence; at least in my area, apparently) while getting quite worked up over other, seemingly trivial concerns, such as petty drug charges and arbitrary "age of consent" restrictions. Just who exactly makes these laws anyway, and exactly what is the motive for their creation?

CHEMICALS / POLLUTION / PROCESSED "FOOD"
As you all already know, a wide array of poisons are being pumped into food, water and the atmosphere with apparently no end in sight whatsoever. It's these factors that are said to be responsible for everything from cancer to the disgusting phenomenon of early maturity in children. In fact, if we are to believe certain accounts, these factors are the direct cause of seemingly every ailment that you can imagine. Then, of course, there's tobacco products. Yet there is apparently nothing whatsoever being done about this. Hmm.......why is that? Well, I think the answer is very simple: extreme corporate greed and corruption at the very highest levels -- perhaps even something much more sinister. After all, there is that theory about water flouridization........

EDUCATION SYSTEM
Think about it: people are made to send their kids to some place for several hours a day, five days a week, for many, many years, all in the name of "educating" them. These supposedly important subjects to be learned include nonsense like science, history, advanced mathematics, and other crap that no one would ever need to know to begin with. There's obviously something more to this; it's probably fair to say that the so-called education system is basically built around the concepts of brainwashing and conditioning.

DISTRACTIONS THROUGH ENTERTAINMENT
This one is clear for all to see. Really, when was the last time you actually saw something on TV that could be considered "thought-provoking"? Why is it that things like alcohol, porn, womanizing and other forms of general idiocy are all so aggressively promoted through the media? Why is it that the most degenerate musical performers are
pushed on the public so relentlessly? It really does seem as if the mainstream media is literally nothing but a tool to keep society passive and essentially "dumbed-down".

Exactly what's going on and exactly how it all ties together, I'm not sure. But it's clear that something's going on, something that demands further investigation.

Thanks for your time. Now, how did I do? Thoughts?

Well certainly interesting. I have to say while I wonder about the state of Education these days, I would not say that science and mathmatics are "crap" I think the salvation of man lies in higher math and science but that is just me. Other then that you raise some interesting points.

I think it may be useful to add this to this thread :

Ignorance - Disinformation job :

They want to keep people as ignorant as they can , and when some info leaks out , it is time for disinformation agents to act. They use the strategies explained in my Signature to reduce the damages.

So who exactly are orchestrating these "plots" to keep us enslaved? You say tptb but that's a pretty general term used by people who have a lack of evidence. I'm sure that since you've uncovered all these plots you have names of the instigators and their secret meetings where they all coordinate their efforts to enslave society.

Also most of these things have gone on for centuries so do these "plots" get passed along through generations? You need to be more specific and not just throw your views on subjects out there and claim it's a conspiracy.

I agreed with most everything accept the above. Knowledge is everything, science gives us all the wonderful things like the computer you used to type your message, history teaches us (if we allow it to) not to make the same mistakes again. Math in my opinion the most important with out it you could not tell time or would have no concept of it other than light and dark. I think the education in the US is in trouble because we have not driven our children to be better at things such as math and science we need more of these subjects being drilled in to our children to turn this nation around. The important thing for our children to know is not to believe something just because the teacher tells them, research subjects and form their own opinion become a nation of free thinkers again and allow the sheeple generation to die away while we expand our own thoughts and knowledge. Just my opinion on that. The rest of it was a good read.

I'd like to add one more element of Oppression if I may.

Apathy

In a system where both parents have to work, just to keep a decent standard of living; they are just to tired to care about much of societal ills. This is all part of the overall design by the cultural structuralist to keep the elite, elite.

Who are the elite? Anyone who has more money than you?

I know there's alot of hate from people for those who have more but if I were to win the lottery today would I now be considered elite and be grouped in with tptb and suddenly have access to this information where our goal is to keep the rest of you down and enslaved?

I understand the op point and I respect his view however I am debating his assumption that there is someone or some group who have a well thought out plan of action to oppress the American people which from my reading is the intent of his post. If i'm wrong than I have misread or misunderstood.

I believe there is no proof of grand schemes underway and although there are plenty of bad decisions made it does not mean that people are out to get you. People, as is the case here I believe, focus on all the negative and overlook any positive.

This is the point i'm debating. So it stands to reason that anyone who know's of schemes to oppress the people must also know who is behind it.

Thanks for your time. Now, how did I do? Thoughts?


You did good!

The only other thing I can think of, although you covered aspects of it is Nationalism or "False" Patriotism.
Simplistic thinking like "My Country right or wrong", "You are either for us or against us", "Love it or leave it", or even something I used say "The US isn't perfect but we're the best!" plays right into the hands of Politicians and policy makers who don't want to be questioned nor examined too closely.

Nationalism reminds me of Religion, people usually react emotionally rather than logically when these beliefs are challenged. It's very difficult to discuss either of these with "true" believers.

Unfortunately the education system follows UNESCO guidelines, hence why the UN dictates what you should learn and how. The liberalization of sexuality is just one agenda in the education system. The fact that you learn useless things that serve you in no way shape or form in your daily life is the problem. You need to understand that some people specialize in certain fields, not everyone is going to know, or be interested in knowing, how to build or program a computer. This is a simple fact of life that you need to understand. People should study in trades and specialized domains (like science), not be forced to undertake, and PAY for, useless garbage in school that serves no purpose but to teach you conformity and how to do as you are told without going too far ahead and creating your own viewpoints. This is why we study and spew other people's theories in school, never able to develop our own in the process for the simple reason of time and monetary constraints. Liberalism (what I like to call bourgeois socialism) and neo-liberalism both come hand in hand as tools of oppression, yet are portrayed as tools of freedom in the mass media. What do you expect from an unregulated capitalist system? All capitalist countries have lost their way, governments are now dictated by multinational corporations and financial institutes, the agenda here is profit making. The tools of oppression are only there to keep the population subverted and in conflict with itself, only through this way can people remain obedient. When you are afraid of everyone around you, including the opposite sex, you are less likely to join forces in rebellion with anyone. This is why some people, who are portrayed as wackjobs in the news media, run around doing shooting sprees. They are creating their own forms of revolution because the general population has turned apathetic. Unfortunately these people target the masses as opposed to targeting the real people who are at fault. Then again, what do you expect from undereducated angry people who can't realize that blaming people for their problems is not the issue, it's the system controllers who are to blame. Theodore Kaczynski (the unabomber) knew this, this is why he's in a proud resident of mental institute now

This is a major problem with people who believe in the NWO or grand schemes within our government. They have no shortage of how's but when it comes to explaining the why's they get very defensive and say thing's like, "just look around you", or "isn't it obvious".

They will attack you for questioning but still will not answer. When you confront them with the idea that if tptb already have the ability to control every aspect of your life than they've already attained all they can so why do the persist?

Calculus- According to my book. Calculus is the study of how things change. It provides a framework for modeling systems in which there is change, and a way to deduce the predictions of such models.

Calc can be used to solve advanced velocity problems like putting a shuttle into space or how large the brakes on a car need to be to stop in in x ft and x speed ect. it can also be used for optimizing nearly anything to get the best use of what ever it is. Kahn University is a free site to learn any math you want to learn and it walks you all the way up to advanced Mathematics it will also give you a good idea of what it can be used for while teaching you haw to do it. The is being used in several schools already replacing normal text math classes K-12 learn at their own pace often time completing more advanced math than their traditional equivalents in schools using texts.

It's because you're dealing with methods of oppression and control from different time frames.
Christianity was invented by the Romans to subjugate the Israelites, and later the masses
that were under their control in occupied lands. They knew they couldn't do it via nationalistic
patriotism so they did it through religion, this is why you see sun worship in Roman Catholic churches, ironically most Catholics don't even notice the multitude of pictures depicting saints with none other than the SUN behind their heads, you'll never see the "holy ghost" cover people's heads in a closed room, usually the heads of Saints have a background of a WINDOW where the sun is located. The last dinner happens during day time, albeit at sun down. During Easter worship the priest shows off a sun to his followers in church. The worship happens at sun rise, which depicts resurrection. The sun was chosen because the "uncivilized" tribes of Europe worshiped the sun, amongst other things.
The message "give unto Caesar what is Caesar's" is propaganda that further serves as argument in the claim that Romans created Christianity in order to subvert and control their population. Not to mention the fact that messages from priests such as "helping people who help you in return is what pagans do" and "we must help those that hurt us most" is old fashioned propaganda that strengthens my claim. As you can imagine, I have a Catholic background. Keep in mind, there's a reason that it's called ROMAN CATHOLICISM. Protestantism came from roman Catholicism hence why you still have Sunday worship and the idea of giving all you own to Jesus, Catholics believe in giving all they own to the Church and people who rule them. More ever, Christian culture is built on traditional and conservative values which are in direct opposition to modern day Liberalism and the "politically correct" line of thinking. This is the only reason Christianity is under fire right now.


As for the nasty modern garbage that is spewed in today's society, it's all in place assuming that mankind is no different than animals. Therefore basic human needs, like sexuality, are exploited to extremes in order to gauge as much profit out of the population as possible. Creating artificial needs and extremising basic needs only serves the Capitalist system by making every single person not only a willing consumer, but a forced consumer. After all, you FEEL that you gotta have that new i-phone and you FEEL that you have to have sex with multiple partners because it's what the media shows off as normal. When you feel abnormal because you don't follow the "normal" guidelines shown to you by mass media, you feel alienated and therefore develop artificial needs, which are enforced by feelings, to become "normal".

There definitely is a scheme in place, just look at the one sided aspect of education and mass media .
The Scheme is the spread of Liberal and Neo-Liberal theories and incorporating them as absolute truths in the post modern world. The reason for this is profit and power, pure and simple.

As to who is behind it? Who ever makes it possible to perpetuate Liberal and Neo-Liberal propaganda.
The rich and powerful who own you silly.
